It's a mixture of a lot of things for me. I think more drops would be nice, not necessarily BETTER drops but just that feeling of getting legendaries seems to be a lot less than uniques/sets in D2. That for me would help a lot, more legendaries all around.
Besides that PvP coming is nice and Pandemonium type events aren't bad.
What I don't want is some sort of "raid" or "dungeon" system where it basically is so hard you can't solo it and is going to require more people and then the loot that drops is exclusive to that boss at least nothing more than an item or two.
We had the Standard of Heroes and the Annihilus Charm and that was basically it. I'm fine with earning achievements from it, or banner sigils or patterns, but I don't want it to get out of hand like raiding in WoW.

Jul 7, 2012Daemaro posted a message on Entry-Level Melee Wizard Build, ERR37 All In One Calculator, Scheduled Maintenance - July 10th, Blizzard Job, Fan Art, End-GamePosted in: News & Announcements
Jul 5, 2012I can see that. I am loving Diablo 3 but I'm also realizing I don't have the time to devote to just grinding items like mad anymore, which sort of diminishes the fun of the genre. So I still play it quite a bit but a lot of my time ends up going elsewhere like work, and family.Posted in: Off-Topic
Jul 5, 2012Well you made this public so I'll address it here.Posted in: Site Feedback
You started a thread, and when it spiraled quickly out of hand you let loose calling everyone " life-hating, pathetic narcissists" "overgrown babies" "scrubs" and "entitled liberals". So yeah I closed it and yeah I gave you a infraction for it.
This seems to all stem from your either inability or your own choosing not to read the guidelines which are at the top of every forum section.
Some of the things you would find inside if you read them:
If you find a post that is inappropriate, report it and they will look into it as quickly as possible. Do not involve yourself. It's simple and keeps you out of flame wars and out of trouble.
In this case it means don't try to fight fire with even hotter fire. If you think someone is flaming or trolling you, report it don't just feel free to hop on into the flames as well.
Another useful part would have been here:
Do not, under any circumstances, publicly discuss moderation about threads, members, social groups, visitor messages, albums, and/or blogs in any public venue. PM Daemaro if you feel you have been unfairly treated.
I'm not unreasonable and I give people multiple chances to clear their names, plead their cases, or just generally behave more calm and rational.
This is just a infraction anyways you're not banned, you're not being kept from posting. It's just a reminder to play nice with others.
Lastly and probably most importantly is this was not your first run in. You were infracted a while back for PURPOSELY spoiling a story for someone, and have had several other occurrences that just slid by because we're forgiving and prefer to have faith that people will learn to get along with each other in a civil manner.
If anyone has any concerns about moderation on the site, feel free to PM me about it, don't discuss it in public forums because it just becomes a spectacle for everyone and nothing really gets resolved.
Jul 2, 2012Posted in: Fan ArtQuote from Aerisot
He did not "fall" from the heavens, he was kicked out after taking off his wings..after having a pissing argument with imperius whom he already knew was high tempered, watch the cinematic again, he is surprised when the strange tenticals come out and drag him into the ground, he even struggles against him.
He chose to become mortal we saw that. I imagine he knew he wasn't going to be able to just keep strolling around as a mortal in the High Heavens, or else why would he have even done it. He wanted to come help Humanity.
His character is just so badly developed compared to how he was in D2, In the Act 2 cinematic he shows Leah what happened to him, in the Act 3 cinematic he pulls Leah out of her dream like state while Azmodan was talking to her, and in Act 4 he reclaims his spot as part of the council only this time as a mortal and as Wisdom...What? He actually doesn't do anything, During the Diablo fight he is standing outside.
His character in D2, awesome for the time because not many games had memorable characters, looked cool, but he was about as deep and developed as a rock. The Sinwar helped show us a lot of other facets to his character other than "righteous angel guy". D3 showed us more of his caring side.
The only kickass thing he does was break the gate him which seigebreaker is behind...Oh but I forgot...right after he does that, he runs behind you like a coward
You're right. He should have just stood there and died I guess, that would have been more badass. Not to mention game mechanics.
Also, I didn't want to mention that he was a sulking crybaby in Act 4 until you find him again, but he was.
He is mortal and a living being, he's entitled to feelings. Even angels and demons have emotion. This was the first time in thousands of years that the High Heavens had ever been breeched, lots of his old brethren have been killed, Malthael has already gone missing, Imperius who he used to be close to is angry at him and Auriel is captured and possibly dead.
Another thing that bugs me, If he is now mortal and can die, how exactly did he survive falling form heaven in a flaming meteor through the roof and 5 stories into the cathedral and then laying in blue flames until your hero taps him on the shoulder?
The wings shielded him from the fall with the last of their power? Maybe Eldruin did something to protect him and that's why it shattered? Maybe he's mortal but still a lot more durable than a human so a fall wouldn't kill him?
I thought overall it was a pretty decent story. Leah I didn't like, they tried to hard with her, but they took the story of the Diablo series which it really didn't even have much of one in the game timeline and it fleshed it out a lot more. It gave us a lot more on the angels, a lot of plot devices, backstory, and set up future events to continue.
Besides, what does ANY of that have to do with how badass a tattoo looks still?
Jun 27, 2012Well the threads that contain people complaining about the game are well... about the game.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
This thread is directed at users of the forum which really doesn't have much to do with Diablo 3.
That being said I'm going to close this, it's a bit inflammatory and in the wrong section too.
Why not make a post about why you like Diablo 3 and what things you look forward to in its future.
Jun 27, 2012Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I'm curious, what is this fact?
The fact that stocks sell higher when there is hype? Or that once the hype is down they lower again?
Just like when Cataclysm released they went up then fell in the 1 month 11 days after?
Did any of that stop WoW from being a successful game? No. Not to mention the many other factors that come into stocks rising and falling.
Jun 27, 2012I'm personally playing pretty casually until the economy evens out more than I may work on getting some gold and getting geared better.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I wouldn't call the small percent of people who use xfire though a actual testimony to the overall amount of people playing.
Jun 27, 2012From now on price check topic should be made in the appropriate trading section of your region. Some people have been using the class forums as a way to make people aware of their items to sell them rather than pure price checking. Your thread will likely get more accurate results in the trade section anyways.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
A good example would be to post in the US Trading section "[Price Check] One Hander - 400LoH, 130 dex, socket" for a weapon on the US realms.
Or price checking a item for EU Hardcore Trading "[Price Check] Wizard Offhand - 94-338dmg, 60int, socket"
If you post in the class section and we cannot determine which region or gamemode section it belongs in we will likely just lock it instead of moving it.
Jun 18, 2012This is just a list I compiled of all the best items from each section. Most are ilvl63 but some of the class specific only seem to go up to ilvl62. Me and my friends use this in Inferno so we don't waste time picking up lower level rare when the inventory is full, or to make sure a high level rare catches our eye to make sure we grab it.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Dec 13, 2011There was a time when RPGs didn't require you to meticulously plan out your character builds from level 1 you know. You might have even played such a game. (Diablo 1) If that's too "actiony" for you though, you might look at every single RPG based on AD&D 2nd edition, which had downright minimal customization options for building a class. And if D&D isn't an RPG, I'm not sure what is.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Dec 10, 2011Lemme see if I can channel my inner republican a moment...Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
OK! Protesting is stupid. Anyone with enough free time to protest is a useless hippie and a drain on society. That goes double to anyone who's parents have money, because those kids didn't EARN anything! Of course, people shouldn't be taxed for being successful and therefor their offspring are almost guaranteed to be a generation of spoiled, useless, rotten hippie filth, BUT THAT IS WHY WE HAVE POLICE AND JAIL!
Laws are written to be followed. Even very banal laws like "don't loiter," are absolutely keystone to the conduct of a smooth society. What's more, I am sick and tired of every hippie and his hackey-sack taking pot-shot jokes at police and other law enforcement! Everyone knows that once a man puts on the uniform he immediately becomes inscrutably honest, up-right, and deserving of the benefit in EVERY doubt. Sure, there may be some bad apple policemen who've shot and killed innocent youngsters in the housing projects of our cities, but that is a SMALL price to pay for the safety and well-being of our middle-class suburban neighborhoods!
Finally, I've had it up to HERE with poor people. SERIOUSLY, I HAVE HAD IT! They claim to be "disabled veterans," or people "born into low-income families with little or no access to secondary education." Well guess what scumbags? I was born into a HARD-SCRABBLE lower-middle-class household where we only had ONE CAR! Can you believe that?! We were so poor, my family had to no buy a second car just to send me to college! When my father-in-law gave me a six-figure job, it wasn't because I was related to him. It was because I was the best goddamn vice-president of middle-management financial analysis advisory secretary around! Nepotism is a joke because it never really happens. Just like there is no such thing as luck. Only the strong survive and I am living proof of that. After all. I'm relatively successful and I think that I'm strong. Therefor, anyone who isn't successful is naturally weak and probably not worth helping.
God bless America, a christian nation that was definitely not founded by deists. A place where, hopefully soon, the right to vote will again be limited to those who own property, or perhaps shares in blue-chip stocks. I have to get back to the O'Riley factor. He's going to call that smug little liberal juden John Stewart a traitor bound for hell. I need to record it for our Sunday school class.
Dec 10, 2011Diablo 3 Opening CinematicPosted in: News & Announcements
The full version of the Diablo 3 Opening Cinematic has been revealed during Spike TV’s Video Game Awards.
Nov 29, 2011My Diablo 3 Computer Mod!Posted in: Off-Topic
Worthy of a front page post?
Nov 6, 2011Over the last few years, many of us lore fans have felt left out in the cold. Warcraft has seen its universe expand exponentially over the years, and Starcraft, with Starcraft II released and all, has certainly received a similar boost. But now the time has come for all Diablo fans to rejoice in the expanded Diablo universe. Several new, interesting sources of information have recently come to light, the Book of Cain, the Blizzcon Lore Panel and the Black Soulstone Cinematic all give us new pieces of both the overarching lore and the Diablo III story puzzle. With that in mind, let's dig into these three and see what they have to offer.Posted in: News & Announcements
(No datamined information though)
The Book of Cain
This elusive book, recently covered by the late Sixen, appeared on Amazon.com some time ago before quickly disappearing. But now we can all rejoice as it has appeared once again and can be preordered. Release is scheduled for mid december, and it's going to be a treat for lore fans.
What the Book of Cain is trying to accomplish is to clarify and unify the currently canonical lore. And the fans are appreciating it, with the preorders sky-rocketing. As anyone who has ever debated over these things will tell you, Diablo lore is very sparse and contradicting at times. Combining information from two games over a decade old, three canonical novels and five that are not really canon, coupled with the speculation regarding D3, gets pretty muddled. The Book of Cain aims to rectify these discrepancies between lorebits and bridge the gaps between the Diablo books.
Inside its pages are many different things. For the first time ever, we're given a creation myth and an explanation of where angels and demons come from, detailed profiles on all Great Evils (and presumably Angiris Council angels as well), an account of Sanctuary's history as well as Deckard Cain's personal experiences during the events of Diablo I and II.
Many will undoubtedly wonder whether it will introduce a large amount of retcons into the continuity, and at this point it's impossible to tell just how much has been rewritten or ignored from previously established lore. What we have seen so far from Blizzard however, both in terms of the books and the current Diablo III Beta, is that they prefer to clarify previously murky areas with some small changes rather than change large swathes of information. The prime example of this from the previews we have is the creation myth: it depicts two great beings, Anu and Tathamet, who battle and in their deaths spawn the High Heavens and Burning Hells. We didn't know anything about their origins before, and so it expands on our current knowledge without destroying much of it in the process.
The book totals 148 pages, complete with Blizzard artwork throughout all of the pages, so there's certainly tons of information in it. If you want to stay up to date on the lore in the future, this book will be the one to get.
Check out the publishers page, Insighted.com, or our our wiki for the preview images.
Blizzcon Lore Panel
Reported by ScyberDragon last weekend, the Lore Panel was a first for the Diablo series. The panel begun with mostly the preview information we had about the book of Cain as well as a more detailed account of the lore from the //www.diablowiki.com/index.php?title=Sin_War_Novels">Sin War Novels" class="wiki-link">//www.diablowiki.com/index.php?title=Sin_War_Novels">Sin War Novels"/> Sin War Novels. After that they kicked in with some detailed descriptions of both Azmodan and Belial and a few brand new areas before rounding it off with questions.
While the panel, coupled with all the other information, didn't necessarily give a lot of groundbreaking information, it was very nice to see an entire panel dedicated to it. They did stress that they don't want to upset the lore with tons of new arbitrary changes, much like we saw above in regards to the Book of Cain. The most telling example here was probably the Aidan, the Dark Wanderer who has now been made into the eldest son of King Leoric. The change is markant to be sure, but it has also been implemented very smoothly without disrupting much. Tidbits have had to be retconned, but the larger picture remains clear and better for it I believe. Blizzard really wants to develop the lore and story in a powerful yet continuous way it would seem.
The Black Soulstone Cinematic
Now for the juicy part. By now I assume all of you have already seen it and that any of you who are interested in the lore about it have taken a dive into the Lore Forum, but I'll provide a brief summary just in case.
Leah writes in book, looks at Black Soulstone, has vision of Azmodan and his demon army invading from Arreat Crater. Azmodan also tries to chat her up, but ends up making her cry. He should probably work on that routine of his.The finer details of this cinematic are quite interesting. The initial reaction people have, other than being mind-blown with the quality of it, is the rather weird talk sequence between Leah and Azmodan. Why is he even talking to her? If we however substitute Leah for Diablo, the conversation (monologue really) starts to make a lot more sense.
This has of course caused a lot of speculation to spring up, not only here on DiabloFans but over on the Battle.net forum as well. Is it Diablo he's talking to, or the Horadrim/Belial/Tyrael/Deckard Cain/Bob/Leah/someone else? We don't know, but we haven't had this much speculation since D3 was announced three years ago!
Note: No datamined spoilers in this thread.
This has to be mentioned too, whether you like it or not. Datamined stuff has been appearing since the beta started, and it does hint at some specific plot developments pretty strongly. However finding it all was a little troublesome, and so Daemaro compiled it all into one huge spoiler thread. If you want all the information currently available to us, you will have to check that too. I won't spoil any here though, but do check it out if you want to.

Oct 20, 2011I pulled the ultimate Diablo III plug today at work! My smart ass knows no bounds!Posted in: Off-Topic
Our company is growing like a banshee and is up on the block be acquired to the highest bidder because of that. So we have been holding high level meetings with a number of multi-billion dollar corporations interested in acquiring us. Today we had an on-sight visit by a party to go over all of our information technology. For this visit the prospective buyers CEO, CIO, 2 VP's in IT, and a number of analysts we're on hand for an all day meeting.
I capped the days presentation around 4:30PM by covering systems and network security. I go into a 30 minute speech about our 3 tier DMZ, perimeter and host intrusion detection and prevention, data leak prevention, event correlation, disaster recovery, and following government security guidelines etc. The meeting up to this point is all heavy and serious, then the CEO lays the pat question I always get to see if there are any holes in our network that worry me. Bear in mind I'm 45 and wearing a suit and tie, so the CEO is expecting a serious answer from me.
He asks "What keeps you up at night."
I answer "Diablo 3"
Bewildered he asks "I... I'm sorry what's Diablo 3?"
I continue "I'm waiting for Diablo 3 to be released, it's just the most anticipated RPG computer game of the decade and I spend my evenings trying to get a beta key so I can play it."
The room rolled because I stopped him in his tracks and he didn't quite know how to recover.
Yeah baby I still got it!
