I just dinged level 40 on my wizard. It’s a very dark game, but I like it because the whole premise is fighting evil in all its ugliness. Plus its cathartic to have a drink and kill some virtual monsters on the weekend.
So - anyone else on Diablo III? If not, what do you play?
I’ve been wanting to play Dante’s inferno for a while now. You go through Limbo, and the circles of hell, each circle of hell has a boss. The boss of limbo is King Minos, the boss of Lust is queen Cleopatra, and I can’t remember the rest.
I played Rift for a bit last year, and I liked that, too. I never played DII, so I can’t compare that one. However, I played WoW for a few years before trying Rift and now DIII. What I like in Rift is that there’s always something going on - a world event or a rift that needs closing, so it’s not just all quest, quest, dungeon, quest (although there is that, too). What makes me nervous about DIII is that the way you run around, you can’t see very far from your character in any direction, so you are basically forced to run headlong into whatever is just beyond your vision (whereas in WoW and Rift you can change your vantage point so you have fewer surprises about what you’re running into). As a squishy caster (wizard), this makes me very nervous, but thankfully I have a temporary immunity spell, as well as AoE freezes and slows. Lots of damage helps, too.
One thing I like about DIII as compared to Rift and WoW is the relative simplicity of the action bar. Right click, left click, keys 1-4, and Q. That’s it. No mouse-over macros (staple for druid healing in WoW), no keybinding everything from Q - M (like I used to do with all my rogue abilities and potions for every conceivable situation). So although I do switch what’s on my action bars for trash pulls vs. boss, I like the limited number of buttons.
Awww that’s sweet. That’s what these games are great for - hanging out with people. My husband has a level 60 demon hunter, which came in handy when I had to kill Diablo, since I’m not sure how possible it would have been for me to solo him. I know they scale things so everything is theoretically solo-able, but certain fights are simply not friendly to certain classes.
I’m sorry to hear that. I hope your day gets better.
