Played Diablo 4 for the first time this weekend. Played Necro up to lvl 10 & quit.
Got a sorcerer to 20 but has been challenging.

Shit smeared barb btw
The face looks so bad. Did the art team quit too?
All the faces look like shit and you basically get to pick between 4 with zero sliders. All male Necros have virgin no-chins.
You didn't see Diablo 2 Reforged?
Using your own shit for warpaint is more based than mud or some fucking paint
Its also insanely retarded as you'll probably get wounded and if its something like a large cut, the mixture of sweat and blood will run down into the wound likely infecting it and killing you in the process.
Everytime I read something like this I remember of Karl Drogo.
Why does facial hair look so bad in this game?
people just make shit choices. I'm a beard fag and a lot of the beard options look 10 times better than most mmorpgs. Look at monster hunter for bad beard options imo.
>a lot of the beard options
You mean the choice of 3 beards? Wow so many choices
pretty much all hair in modern games with PBR looks like shit because of TAA and just poor shading in general
not a Barbarian.
Sorc is fun. Necro minions always make things boring to me
Necromancer's Minions need to be reverted back to the open beta before the game launches. I've got both minion types sacrificed because I'd rather not waste 6 points to buff their HP and hope they survive long like the open beta's skeletons. What they could also do is when summoning skeletons or using the summon ability it should heal them to full hp each time especially with how quickly they die now.
They're rolling out a hotfix to buff them soon. They may not be as strong as they were but they'll be stronger.
They aren't rolling out a hotfix in the next 6 hours, anon. it will be tweaked for release.
>Nerf Minions because they are too strong on tier 2 world at level 20
>spend months after first beta not testing at all
>have to damage control the server stress test weekend cause players were probably refunding
Fucking WoW Balance team is leading this disaster
Why the fuck would you nerf them because tier 2 was easy. Literally the "does your build work" difficulty.
why is the WoW balance team.
They just swing the bat at whatever is top and buff the bottom.
They cant even get that right though.
>why is the WoW balance team.
Why, is because its the wow balance team*
Blizzard is fucking retarded with their balance as usual. The reports from the endgame tests already said that necro was the weakest class yet they nerfed them because they were good at low levels. They're making wide swinging changes with zero thought put into them. Probably using some stupid ass metrics gathered from the open tests that don't reflect reality of the game. Like clearly nobody tested the nerfed skeletons on any bosses or else that change wouldn't have gone through.
Fully expecting another nerf patch before launch based on what was popular in this server slam.
If they are going to nerf anything its going to be Rogues. They were actually playable
Blizzard isnt even keeping in mind we had only 25 levels to play with
They nerfed shit hard at that level, imagine what they will nerf when everyone is max lvl
First couple weeks is gonna be nerf city. Hot fixes every other day to kill the newest farming methods and OP builds.
I am 100% sure this will happen. Absolutely no fun will be allowed. They will be so buttblasted by people finding OP builds. But if that's the case they should have just made a full beta for like a month with some end game content available.
No idea why they care so much about low tier worlds when people who are going to min max anyway are just going to push content and worlds later
Classic Fun Detected balance changes.
Just like D3 launch. We going home bois.
>takes a corpse to heal skeletons for 10% of their hp
>they die in 2 hits from a boss
wow i'm sure they put a lot of thought into balancing this
Aren't you enjoying your new ACTIVE playstyle Anon?
Developer's Note: Active does not mean you're allowed to command your minions to target something.
>Developer's Note: Active does not mean you're allowed to command your minions to target something.
That would actually be cool and given how you control the game with a mouse you could easily have minion classes play out like a mini RTS.
This is a console game for retards, you will take your retarded autominions and you will be happy
Later passives in the tree makes them way more durable, it's only issue of lv20 max.
>buffing hp not going glass cannon
cringe! spot the gay who will never get top on the leaderboards!
Sounds like you're just afraid to sweat. Just passed Neyrelle's mom and it was fine. More challenging than before as opposed to almost zero challenge.
I'd say it was actually easier since I chose skeletal mastery over corpse explosion this time around so I wasn't using up my corpses on bs and let my skellies do most of the damage. Maybe I'd be okay if the priest did more healing but I beat it just fine as is. Hope they don't knee jerk again and buff it too much.
Ice Sorc was so much fun. I ripped through the levels with ice blast, and hydra combo with blizzard. Enjoyed my Rogue both melee and bow. I agree necro pets got nerfed a bit to much, but still I enjoyed this beta.
playing necro myself, i did a sick bone spear build and i can do lots of damage
minions seem kind of shit, even with bonus health/damage so i just sacrificed them
thanks for the update blizzard marketing team
This. Nobody wants your wine games blizz. Go back.
Woke not wine. Ducking iPhone correcting me after the fact. Going back to samshit soon enough.
>corrects fuck to duck
>corrects samsung to samshit
Not like you have anything better to play. Just play through the campaign and then do dailies for a few months, maybe buy a few cosmetics.
>Not like you have anything better to play.
I'm sorry you're so bored with the hobby you think fucking Diablo 4 is worth dumping $70 on.
Brought to you by the guy in charge of Gears of War 4 & 5, universally agreed to the be best and most inclusive in the series by far.
Ever wondered why you find everything in your life challenging?
The game is fun and I’ll buy it. It is probably better than the other games in some ways and probably worse than the other games in other ways and everyone is going to argue about it endlessly for no reason instead of just playing it for the amount of time it is fun for and moving on.
That's just the standard jelly fag, blizzard is the king of these genres and it makes some salty.
>gotta Consoom fast!
It is ridiculous how bad Druid is, I went full bear and got my ass handed to me by an sidequest dungeon boss. If the Druids specialty helps then it should be available to try in beta.
I've only played Druid. Is it really shit compared to the others?
Play another class anon.... yes it's got a tiny buff but it's best build is a zero minion build.
No. And even if it was - stick with it if you like it because nerfs and buffs come and go. All these fotm shitters crying about how their precious sekllies aren't outputting more damage each than a full ass barbarian at level 1 are retards. Now look they're all crying on reddit about it.
Anon every single other class is way more fun to play
That is completely subjective.
No druid is objectively bad it is not fun to play the skills to not synergize well with one another. The game is way easier with other classes even the nerfed necro. There's nothing subjective about druid at all.
I played druid the first open beta and it was entirely miserable, what was worse is when I saw comparisons of how fast just about every other class killed the questline bosses to a druid. I get what they want to do with the Druid, I just flat out refused to try it this weeks beta, but unless they actually change the whole class it's going to just be a miserable class to play.
made a tornado druid with howl and wolves, its gotten me through everything in this test, but im not getting ANY FUCKING LEGGOS REEEEE
diablo 2 druid is better FACTS
not buying this shit game
you cant even hurricane as a level 20 druid in D2 anon
I did Werebear up until about level 15 and then respecced to Werewolf with an emphasis on poison and had a much better time. Werebear just can’t kill bosses for shit. Werewolf is much better, but my lightning sorc was still much better.
i definitely feel like level is arbitrary in diablo. After the initial leveling experience, there becomes a point where paragon drops off and with the amount of resources d3 had, id be hard pressed to believe d4 wont have the same. Getting small boosts in a free track that is available to everybody all the same wont matter.
Unless you are going to ultra sweat pvp, getting an easier leveling experience to level 100+paragon isnt going to make your life any harder. To circle back to the d3 resources, i see a point where people with less creative drive to theory craft flocking to third party sites to "net build" a character for pve or pvp.
Best sorc build right now:
Arc Lash maxed out
Charged Bolts maxed out
Flame Shield / Ice Shield / Nova / Teleport for survivability and mobility (get an accessory with +1 to all Defensive skills to save 4 skill points)
>do a rogue since it's the only one i haven't played
>ranged is ok but nothing special
>get a lego that boosts grenade skills
>check my skills
>only one grenade skill (smoke bomb)
they nerfed everyone, necro is now druid lvls of shit, barb is mid as is rogue, sorc is just barely better than ev erything else
i don't understand what they were thinking with the necro nerfs
it was clearly corpse explosion and blood mist that were busted, but they went and nerfed skellies
unironically redditors and streamers, they couldve nerfed just the legendary or the skill itself but no they need to nerf everything
Necro skeletons were downing bosses in fast forward mode, they were absurdly busted.
You said "fun" you stupid gay, which is 100% subjective. You are a fotm morongay who can only have fun playing broken shit because you're garbage at the game. kys.
Oh i see you were just trolling. have a nice day Blizzdrone.
seethe and cope
go back to poe you utter fucking retard
Thing with Druid is he relies heavily of getting a legendary power otherwise you're stuck using landslide (unless you get earth-based leg powers lol) until then. From then on things become a cakewalk. It's too bad they nerfed leg drops (for most areas in the game.. hehe) so this wasn't as easy to do for most people.
They didn't nerf shit except for necro minions, last beta we got rained on with leggos which made every class except druid feel broken. Current beta is how the game is supposed to be. Plus necro minions not dying made tanky minions completely irrelevant. Now there's an actual reason to pick the tanky ones.
theres no way they tested this because every boss is 2-3 shotting these things also why the fuck is the priest skeleton heal so bad whats the point if it heals nothing it just becomes tedious
Because they are listening to twitter unironically
first time i played beta i played druid on veteran and had no problem reaching the cap, not knowing everyone was saying how weak druid was. i had fun with the difficulty. had no idea other classes were so much more powerful. i played sorc on veteran this go around and its so easy its not even a game at a certain point, and yet im told its nerf'd now. bunch of babies seriously. also just a casual arpg player, rarely doing anything beyond endgame.
Whats next for blizzard? sure their games dont flop but this was the last IP that had power with retards
ruined with reforged
Ruinned with immortal and while d4 may not flop in sales i doubt it will be even looked in a good light by the casuals that love d3 slop on console.
Zoomers moved on very quickly, overwatch 2 did nothing to bring anyone back
So whats next? i doubt we are getting a new starcraft and wow classic seems to finally dying retail its just a corpse , realistically while their portfolio still will keep the company alive all of their IP are "dying" or in a downward trend
WoW is ruined with woke shit dont forget handicapped dragons and trans dragons
jesus christ its true LOOOOOOOOL
theres no way this is real something like this would be the death of any other studio but bros still playing blizz games
>the death of any other studio
Yeah, they don't report subscriber numbers for a reason.
small indie company*
No fucking way lmao. A disabled dragon?… in a medieval wheelchair, idk what to even say.
In a world of magic where you can bring people back to life
not a problem, they will announce a new epic mmo and release nice cinematics and promises. By the time it releases in 3-4 years and people realize that it is bad (once again) they've made money (once again)
>Zoomers moved on very quickly, overwatch 2 did nothing to bring anyone back
I'm pretty sure overwatch "2" was a major reason in them moving on.
the mobile tier ui holy shit
looks like shit wtf
where is my memorable music, blizzard?
D4s ost is forgettable to say the least
I enjoyed playing the beta on a controller more than KB+M. Unironically.
Give me WASD movement already Blizzard.
Controller feels like playing an action game. Kb+m feels like playing cookie clicker
What class is this?
the pedo class
Barb pvping a femnec
Tamer. She's using her pheromones to slowly mind control that dude.
Why is every interaction with women regardless of their age sexual to you?
that is a fucking child you disgusting subhuman
Today is the day I learned that humans are monogender until they reach the age of 18 which is when they finally split to two different sexes. Thank you for teaching me.
you disgust me
Well you better go puke and then go to a psychologist to get your mental issues fixed because I'm not going anywhere.
last you, disgusting pedo scum
Did uncle Biden touch you again?
Ok, good luck with the puking. Try not to bleed too much from your throat.
Stop fucking derailing the thread
Tell it to that mentally ill person who thinks animal tamers fuck the beasts they tame and keeps calling me pedo for it
Just. Shut the fuck up okay
Just. Fuck. Off. Okay.
Imagine giving Activision money in year of our lord 2023
I mean I'd buy it on sale, it's nice, but not super feeling the $70 price being charged.
>aaahhhh you got me! I can't break out of your hold!
This is a good, solid, no frills, $29,99 game.
That's the problem with asking $70, the expectation is high, really REALLY fucking high. Like this experience needs to shit on the Diablo 2 launch experience, it needs to blow your fucking mind wide open.
But it doesn't, and that's fine, just price it accordingly.
Which bobby won't he needs three new yachts
I know it's unrelated genres but you can't put this next to a big dick flex like Elden Ring and say, yes these cost the same, these are equals, they're not. They just aren't.
So just buy last epoch instead?
Last Epoch's endgame is atrocious. Even worse than D3's endgame, which is literally just GR spam.
Can necro spec into melee to be a death knight or are you stuck playing caster?
Oh. No longer interested in the game then. I'm a coomer and was going to play for necro lady but I don't like casters.
LOL great game
Now lets see him do it on a druid.
I still don't understand how we had multiple Rogue solo videos pre-patch but they still decided to nerf Sorc and Necro into the fucking ground.
Sorc and Necro are perfectly fine melting everything in seconds. This exactly why you never ask Ganker a class advice. Most people here are guide reading smoothbrains like this guy.
17 damage is now 12 damage
They fixed EVERYTHING!
>Run the impaling blades melee and spec it to reduce all my cool downs when it boomerangs to me
>Have to work on the weekend
>Only get two chances at the boss
>First attempt we failed at 10% hp and he despawned
>Second attempt the servers literally crashed and reset the whole area
Why the fuck is this event only 1 god damn day
Going to laugh at all the salty no-luckers who miss out on the trophy because they got stuck in bricked instances with lowbies and other shitters on every window
>every instance has nothing but Barbs and Druids
The open world with other players running around is REALLY fucking stupid and a major thematic mistake.
Had one instance that was half barbs and we still managed to clear with time to spare
shout buffs help a ton
I generally don't understand the thought on putting a carrot on a stick event in the game that is a server stress test only for ONE(1) day.
To prove how mind broken people are
It's so that in 5 years I can equip my "I WAS THERE AND YOU WEREN'T" trophy on my horse and make people so seethe so much that they begin crying because they missed out.
I think think we gonna see people seethe tomorow, not even have to wait 5 years.
>padding engagement metrics by caring about shitty horse cosmetic so that they can justify their shop
FOMO gays need to die
First two betas were more fun, more content because you had lvl 25 cap, had access to more skills and legendaries dropped like candy
this server slam beta everything was nerfed as hell
beat it three times now even two underleveled retards first attempt but everyone is shitty geared
literally right at the limits
almost fully geared out with a group of plebs so 1 minute left on timer at absolute best
only 1 lego from the act1 boss + the generic amulet lego
the rest you farm at the lvl 30 spot or farm gambling obols
world boss drops 1 lego + the reward thing only got ONE lego, in the earlier beta it dropped a shit ton, the drops suck huge coks this time around
the earlier beta was more dopaminergic ngl
>only 1 lego from the act1 boss + the generic amulet lego

>world boss drops 1 lego + the reward thing only got ONE lego, in the earlier beta it dropped a shit ton, the drops suck huge coks this time around
>the earlier beta was more dopaminergic ngl
I got three legos from the last world boss. Two dropped outright, one was from the "grand cache" that also dropped.
>I got three legos from the last world boss. Two dropped outright, one was from the "grand cache" that also dropped.
now that you say it I dont remember if two or one dropped the first time
i still think it was only one, it was absolute shit
get more legos in 15min farming the lvl30 spot than killing world boss
i unironically thought the earlier beta drops were better tuned than this, this is so fucking bad right now
and dungeons dont drop shit ever, its just chests and corpses
hopefully fix this shit
Why are they all black?
D4 scans your search history and picks the appropriate skin colors. I got all white selections.
It is HEAVILY weighted to pick the black presets over any other.
I just refreshed my screen 10 times. Here's my results.
>3 white women, 1 white man, 1 asian woman
>3 white women, 1 white man, 1 black woman
>2 white women, 1 white man, 1 asian woman, 1 black man
>3 white women, 1 white man, 1 black woman
>3 white women, 1 white man, 1 black woman
>2 white women, 1 white man, 1 arab looking man, 1 black woman
>1 white woman, 1 white man, 1 arab looking man, 1 arab looking woman, 1 black man
>1 arab looking woman, 2 white men, 1 black woman, 1 black man
>2 white women, 3 white men
>3 white women, 1 arab man, 1 black woman
Maybe it's based on your region. I'm from Europe and I don't see many black presets.
i've made three characters, and each time i restarted the game, all of them were white (and most female)
>source: my ass
i seriously hate how hard they made it, casuals literally cannot keep up and you can't solo the boss
>had to try 3 different times and when i finally get a good team it goes down in 8 minutes
I feel like I’ll just stick to D3. I unironically liked the colorfulness and the other options are online only besides Torchlight.
Are they planning to do like a final patch or anything?
I actually downloaded D3 yesterday and haven't touched it in years, it's hilariously cool what they've done with rifts and shit.
I was actually asking because I hadn’t played in like a year! So is it nicer now?
I just want a grinder for breaks.
>I unironically liked the colorfulness
But it's all brown, white, grey and blue?
Even the areas with vegetation have the same colour palette.
I think this game would've been cooler with WoW controls and camera perspective. Is there a Diablo-like game that plays like WoW?
Yeah and I bet it would be cooler if it had zombies and guns.
that's the best word I have for it, just the definition of mid. why would you ever play this over other ARPGs on the market
hell why would you play it over D2R in the same fucking launcher
Diablo 2 is fucking stale at this point. D4 is a lot better.
D2 is an ancient game anon, "D4 is a lot better" isn't saying much. Lots of people aren't feeling D4, I think it's fine, I won't pay full price for it though.
What's your fastest Ashava kill so far? We managed to almost sub 5 it this last window.
I haven't played yet, but can necro play without minions?
technically. you can give up your skeletons for buffs, but necro is so fucking weak right now i don't see how a 15% damage increase or whatever will save it
oo so the concept's there. maybe minions early and swap to the sacbuffs later then
I haven't played Diablo since 1. I played the beta for a few hours and thought it was pretty fun. I played barb and probably will only play barb. The UI is pretty shit
Now play diablo immortal for 5 minutes and you will see it's almost the exact game
Please tell me you guys aren't too casual to play on hardcore.
Please tell me you play as your waifu too you sad fucking weeb gay.
I did Last Epoch to the endgame to kill my D4 desires. Got quickly reminded of just how that genre works. There's zero creativity or choice on your end. You got a few cookie cutter builds same as everyone else, everything else is trash. The story no matter how great is done in a dozen hours max, and beyond that it's just an endless grind for loot, 99% of which is just a waste of time to compare with and shouldn't even drop in the first place. And the gameplay has all the depth of 5 buttons and that's it.
I'm glad I did it though. I was so excited for D4 a month ago. Now I couldn't possibly care less.
D2r seems to break this. I'm this guy. I want to jump back in.
Am I too late to try d3? I finally have the time and finances.
You're too late, anon, your favourite streamer isn't playing it. It's over. Sorry.
I never had the time to watch.
Now you have
>Got quickly reminded of just how that genre works. There's zero creativity or choice on your end. You got a few cookie cutter builds same as everyone else, everything else is trash.
You should get into Path of Exile this league. Basically everyone is saying the new league mechanic produces items that are so overpowered, you can make any build work this league. It's pretty much true as far as I can tell myself.. I've never gotten this far in PoE ever.
Actually not a bad idea at all Anon! Idk why I didn't think of this. Especially since I already have it / it's free.
When yall say rogue is thst like the hired mercenary rogues of d2? I've been out of the loop for ages. Also is d2r fun? Looks fun. Why does d3 look like WoW and is it also fun? If so how does it differ from ancient d2? Last time I played.
I just can't play ARPGs anymore.
They are so fucking boring, you literally do the same shit on repeat for hours and hours, pick up the new shiny thing with green arrow stat. Rinse and repeat. Makes me feel completely braindead.
id love a new time sink game
but d4 looks so bland
PoE still has some charm because of the complexity and systems of the game, D4 is a mobile game.
nah i cant wrap my head around the 20 different systems anymore
PoE is too much of a hassle to play. Trading simulator sucks (and defeats the point of the game as far as I'm concerned) while SSF sucks because while doable the game is still balanced around trading so SSF is rather tedious and extremely limited. It also requires you to piss away your savings or engage in asinine achievement grind if you don't want to look like shit.
Could have just said "I got filtered"
Filtered by D4? lmao the game is a cookie clicker with 3 buttons bro
Filtered by boredom
>They are so fucking boring
Exactly why I like them. Something nice and simple and stress free to cruise through. Same reason why my most hated aspect of them is the odd random elite that can completely unexpectedly kill your character with one hit. Grim Dawn has been the biggest offender recently.
i know what you mean
idk after playing poe and even torchlight infinite, i'm kind of over the giga late game super speed clear massive aoe builds.
d4 is slow for now, and that's ok with me.
imo zoom zoom builds are fun because you dont need to do anything
turn off brain put on some music and just mindlessly farm shit
I like the build up to just wiping the screen or screaming through the map instagibbing everything at 90 sanics while spinning2winning
Don't worry they also fixed Druid, he now does 12 damage
Why did Blizzard try to rip off Lost Ark so desperately with this utter piece of garbage game?
Did they put hot babes in the game or something?
Hahahahahaha, as if.
Some female characters look quite nice in D4, shame about the small boobs and limited face options. Female barb unironically has the best proportions.
Wait, there are males and females in Diablo IV?
Speaking of which, I'll never understand why people don't make fun of the woke newspeak by just using it in a deragotory manner, such as "happy international body type 2 day" or "body type 2 belongs in the kitchen". It doesn't really matter what words you use to describe reality, reality doesn't change through language.
>reality doesn't change through language.
It does if you severely punish and unperson anyone who dares try to reject it. Eventually only obedient goys who either accept the new reality or have only ever known reality as prescribed by their masters will remain in society and reality, by virtue of no one questioning it, has changed
im not sure why they went with the open world pseudo-mmorpg route. I guess it's just the unfortunate evolution of the franchise
I do kinda hope no one likes world bosses and the devs rework the concept tho
Lightning or Ice Sorc
not gonna lie, the game feels kinda boring. everything takes forever to kill, there's no sense of progress because it was a slog at level 6 and it is a slog at lvl 20. actually haven't played poe in years but the beta made me want to replay that out of all things
>everything takes forever to kill
>my dmg went from 12 to 17
>shit levels with you
>n-no it can't be me
You are right. Mashing a single button in PoE should be more your speed.
Let's quit pretending there's anything deep or interesting about diablo 4 gameplay. Kill time is longer because they nerfed droprates and artificially increased boss health.
This is intended design according to the developers. I have to agree that the slower pace isn't particularly fun compared to the previous betas. Can't imagine the slog it will be going through the higher difficulties. 5+ minute boss fights every dungeon with the same gameplay loop of dodging 2 mechanics.
Like it's any worse than this. Diablo 4 is the high point of this shit series but no one wants to admit it.
>like it's any worse than the 20 year old game it's supposed to be a sequel of
lmao nice one Drone
you were exposed the first time, this won't change shitter
That isn't blind, you retard. That swirling thing above the barb is berserk and the monster is debuffed from a shout.
No monster blinds in the catacombs level 2. Dim vision is a necro curse.
I've never played diablo 2 or PoE so not sure what your argument is. I just don't find D4 particularly fun at all.
Same coupled with the fact shits gonna be timegated as they will copy lost arks systems and wow devs are incompetent D4 is gonna such a slog to go through
>get to the end of the beta
>didn't get a single legendary
>most loot is ~8 levels below my level
why did they fuck up the loot so bad? not even launch d3 was this bad
Get the accelerated battle pass goy
They nerfed not only every class but the drop chance a LOT
They nerfed the drop rate to a retarded degree, I went hard for 24 hours and only got one non guaranteed legendary drop it was a inscribe dupe. The gamble shop was the only reliable way to get them.
>The gamble shop was the only reliable way to get them.
No you can also craft them. You are of course limited by available dungeons, but still all classes should be able to get one of two legendaries out of it.
I meant for non inscribes, my bad.
self made legendaries have one mod less because turning a rare into one doesn't add a mod
blizzdrones in shamble, your game is shit, and will die 1 month after release
it won't, as long as blizzard gives out free copies with every KFC order
>no WASD movement
not gonna play
>Got a sorcerer to 20 but has been challenging.
how? I facerolled the beta with her
sorc was top tier dps in the beta anon, they nerfed every class
yeah I mean I facerolled this server slam with her
there's nothing challenging about the game at this point dunno if higher level content will change that but I doubt it
Only challenging stuff is with druid
>20 second cooldown for a skill that does 12 damage per tick
Maybe they should make it 40 or 60 seconds, it just feels too strong right now...
Cooldowns in general were a bad idea in D3, and continues to be a bad idea.
Dont want to overwhelm players by having more than 3 buttons they can press at any time.
more like tedious
Blizzard got it in there head that low level is some how an important part of the journey and not something people are going to blast past in a few hours.
Thus they balanced the game around it .
taking a page from GGG's book where they've spent the last couple years making the journey into maps slower and more shit
Chris Baldson has some fucking obsession with the campaign being difficult or some stupid shit like that when all the players just want to get through it asap when they make new characters
they should have sold campaign skips years ago
>show up to world boss
>3 skelly necros
>necro minions out
>any level below 20
yep that's a town portal
>do 1 dungeon
>no exit or portal, have to click 3 times and browse 'emote menu' to find hidden 'exit dungeon' button.
>re-enter, can't need to wait 5 minutes for it to 'reset'
The game is complete dogshit.
Is this bait? You can just open your map and click a single time.
thatll be 70 bucks plus 20 bucks for the premium bp oh and another 20 for the paladin
I enjoyed the server slam but not paying $70 for this. Or any game.
Are you expected to be able to solo Kor Dragan? I barely managed to do it on a levelcapped Necro with half of my slots being legendaries with a bone lance spam build + Reaper skellies with the corpse spawn chance on hit talent
You are not expected to go there at all on lvl 20. It's a 30lvl place.
Still cleared it and got a bunch of loot I can't even use. The last boss especially is a huge bitch. Only challenging part of the beta I'd say.
Yeah I did it as well, just to see if I can. The boss really was a cunt.
facerolled it with a sorc
>I barely managed to do it on a levelcapped Necro with half of my slots being legendaries with a bone lance spam build + Reaper skellies with the corpse spawn chance on hit talent
Once I got level 20 gear going I could do it reliably on my kickster barbarian. I hate the fact that so many areas do not allow for a wall stun even if level geometry suggests it should be possible.
>The last boss especially is a huge bitch
He's a pushover except for the last phase when he has 3 adds at the same time, but you can play around the adds fairly easily. All you gotta watch out for is the trap that keeps you in place for the boss to blast you.
Most of my gear was lvl 14-15 rares, 2 legendary rings, gloves and a helm. DPSing him down to the part where he summoned all 3 adds was easy but past that was a bitch cause the elites instantly killed my summons. I basically resummoned them just to lose their aggro for a moment and to get some more mana for bone lance spam then kited the boss around til he died, which got tricky once he decided to start following the shield elite
Did they added something new in the beta like horse or something? I btw this shit gonna ceash when every player ride ahorse
you get a horse horn.
>waaahhh legendaries are dropping like candy shit game
>waaaaaaah legendaries never drop for me shit game
You guys are funny
This game is hot garbage, it's just Diablo 3 but plays as slow as Diablo 2 with /players 8
Oh and world quests from WoW
>it's just Diablo 3 but plays as slow as Diablo 2 with /players 8
but that's a good thing. I had the most fun when I was actually setting up enemies to combo them, rather than just pressing left click to proceed.
>mfw kicking a dude through a whole group
>mfw kicking a dude and he goes CRUNCH into the wall and dies
MIGHTY FOOT ENGAGE is barb's most fun skill imo
I loved setting up double swing, getting free core hits and extending berserk time.
Shits fun, and leagues better than D3, its not even a comparison. Gives me old school D1/D2 vibes with a mix of expansive map like Grim Dawn. I'd rate the game as a 9/10.
About time, anon.
>Gives me old school D1/D2 vibes
ROFL, it's not even remotely like D1/D2. If anything it's fucking retail wow.
>leagues better than D3
it there a blacksmith like in d3 ? or is salvage only to improve item levels ?
Post your drip
Not sure if item crafting becomes a thing later on. I'd assume it would.
you could have just answered "no" you dirty shill
Overall I liked the game, but it needs a UI overhaul and more ability slots.
wont happen ist built on the immortal engine hence why it looks like it
>get a cool scythe
>can't swing it
t-thanks very cool
Pick melee skills like Reap and you get to swing it
>have to waste points on skills to SWING my scythe
thanks marketer that really convinced me to play your video game
Necro being the only melee class that almost never swings his weapon is weird, but hasn't he been like that since D2?
D3 was more of a Death Knight since they already had the pet spammer class.
The only melee class in the game is barbarian. The rest are hybrids.
You do swing it with whatever spell you cast. Don't you dare move a goal post to actually hiting something with it. You wanted to swing, you get to swing.
>weapon says it does over 100 damage a hit
>i do 12 damage because meme auto attack ability
why even have damage on the weapons?? can someone explain this to me??
Is it really so hard to figure out? it's a base damage that abiltities use to calculate their output. Basic attacks might do 50%, core might do something like 200% for example.
then why say 100 damage per hit if it's not actually true?
>game enters cinematic mode and zooms in every time you click on an NPC
STOP DOING THIS FUCK
speaking of why are the fucking cinematics locked to 30 fps
so fucking annoying
I noticed that and the only thought was consoles where its probably all locked at 30
Mmm mmm stutter stop gameplay, very Diablo like, very fun
Who says Blizzard is woke.
>garden gnome, Nig, Asian, White
Now you're just reaching or playing dumb. Choosing your face from a limited pool with the most basic skintones that has been around for decades in games.
>with the most basic skintones
There's no skintone for tanned white. It's all white to pink and pink with freckles. As soon as you move into the darker skin tones you're immediately in Africa or India. Maybe Mexico at best.
>lower level cap

>Barb and druid still crying in the corner
What the fuck was blizzard thinking with this test? If before I was maybe thinking of buying the game, if this is how they'll deal with balance I for sure won't even touch it even for free.
Also post more necros and sorcs
Your complaining a beta is a beta?
neither the beta nor this server slam was a beta you fag, its the release version
why do you think they nerfed shit instead of saying "its gonna be nerfed in the release"
They nerf things all the times during alphas and betas.
cope harder blizzdrone
Your complaining about a level limit during a stress test of servers forcing people to be in the same areas and fighting world bosses.
no i am saying that you are wrong , that neither the first "beta" nor this sever slam was "just a beta" and its actually the release version
which is why they have been nerfing shit
if this truly was "only a beta" they would say "oh dont worry on release well fix it"
but they didnt
Have you ever played a fully released game where there were certain builds or classes that you didn't think needed a nerf?
goal poast moving is your speciality isnt it
I'm complaining that blizzard noticed people were having a bit too much fun with their previous game so they just made everything worse in this one. Instead of nerfing shit, they should've raised the level cap to 30 and buffed the fuck out of druid/barb. Everyone would be happy
I think I am already bored to death by act 1, can't be bothered to level to 20. These games aren't much fun when you don't get to keep your character.
Admit it, guys. It's a 5/10 game and you're only getting it because ARPGs are a dying genre/there aren't many releasing it right now and it has Diablo in the name.
Blizzdronies will defend 70$ for it
Even most fans of the game are saying "Well, it's mediocre but my buds are playing it so I'm getting it, anyway." Multiply that by 30 million and you have the sales for this game and most other AAA games stagnating the industry.
Here's the thing. I'm just not going to play it. I know. I know. Uggghhhhh I know. It's just that...
I'M NOT GOING TO PLAY IT AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA
>class locked items
>game only drops items your class can use
Been like that for over a decade, D2 shitter.
Back in muh day waaaaaay back in 1941 we played muh Diablo 2 and stuff dropped for every class and we liked it muh boy
>Been like that for over a decade, D2 shitter.
What's been like that? A good game that Blizzard released? Oh wait
It's the blizzard way of items
Worst fucking cancer out there made for casual mom & dads that don't get to play more than an hour per week
Blizzard is so fucking bad at game design
>game only drops items your class can use
False. I just got pic related 30 seconds ago.
That's a specific quest reward tho.
nta, I've gotten shields on non-necro characters.
Smart loot is undeniably there, but it's not turned up to 100% (maybe 95%).
I just got these 2 as well, just now.
I bet that's the only one you've ever got
Not true, I kept getting Sorcerer staffs from Cellars
Nah I got a Rogue Legendary from Ashava even when I'm playing a Druid.
There are legitimate reasons to shit on this game, but why would you make something up like that?
Why are most of the Aspect dungeons in the beta for Barb and Druid
>Buffs only last like 5 seconds
>Map tells you exactly where to go for every quest

It's gaming time.
How far will $70 get me in Lost Ark? Feels like I could just be playing the better game now.
>the better game
Moment to moment (combat, effects, etc.) LA is better, but the kmmo shit ruins it all.
Got to Vhenard as a barb at level 16 but I can't be fucked anymore. Gameplay was already fucking boring enough as it is
Somehow the connection issues are far worse than the beta. I'll buy on sale because the day one experience is not worth it. Not even consoles can play offline which is a joke.
I just realized that on console you have to pay 70 dollarydoos + tip + Mtx + console specific online connectivity just to play a game you legitimately bought.
Yes. Buying D4 on consoles is an easy way to cuck yourself when 3 and 2R exists
The other 2 betas were plague with connection issues for me, but I haven't had a single connection issue this test.
Apparently you can play offline on consoles (so the peasants don't have to pay their subscription just for an SP experience) but I forget where I read it so probably don't quote me on that.
not this time, online REQUIRED for Diablo 4 at all times on all platforms
>he got stuck in a trap instance
you only have 2 more tries until end of beta, better hope you're not put in the short bus instance :^)
>Apparently you can play offline on consoles
That would be really nifty. If it gets released on a switch I could pirate it for my steam deck.
>world boss is you and other retards beating up a monster with such an inflated hp pool that it takes like 15 minutes to take 20% of his max hp
>has the same mechanics throughout the fight to ensure you will fall asleep at some point if you haven't given up already
I enjoyed the game more than I thought I might, but what the fuck were they thinking
boss is you and other retards beating up a monster with such an inflated hp pool that it takes like 15 minutes to take 20% of his max hp
Sounds like a (You) problem. Did him 4 times no problem.
>15 minutes to take 20% of his max hp
I'm pretty sure that I could take 20% of Ashava's HP entirely by myself on my rogue. Not sure what kind of chucklefuck group you were in.
Mechanics do change and vary a bit the more HP the boss loses. Also unlike in the last beta, we're at a 5 level disadvantage and have barely any legendaries to our name, on top of class nerfs across the board. Thirdly, the boss can be killed without much trouble if you just go down to WL1 and aren't a complete goon. We killed it in about 9ish minutes.
>We killed it in about 9ish minutes.
How is that acceptable to you
>How is that acceptable to you
What's the problem? Are you upset that a world boss designed for group play takes 10 minutes?
>What's the problem? Are you upset that a world boss designed for group play takes 10 minutes?
Nothing in that sentence belongs in a Diablo game
Boss fights don't belong in a Diablo game? Okay, buddy.
Good because Diablo games suck ass now. Diablo 4 is finally freshening up the genre.
>Diablo 4 is finally freshening up the genre.
And by this of course you mean making it more like Retail WoW
>Diablo 4 is finally freshening up the genre.
is this bro serious
I've beaten him on Rogue and Sorc already. Literally, dodge and his shit do DPS. it's not hard.
>Literally, dodge and his shit do DPS. it's not hard.
All his mechanics are ranged lol. On my barbarian I could basically keep standing between his legs and all I had to dodge was 1 circle slam attack of his. The poison ground could easily be endured with heal shouts.
it really sucks being forced to rely on random people doing random shit in a tiny server, you got shit geared teammates or they are underleveled or just garbage?
get fukt, try again in 3 hours lol
>being forced to rely on random people
No one is being forced. It's an optional thing. Also, you can solo it. See
>bro just play meta rogue JUST TO FIGHT A WORLD BOSS
>so what if 12 scrubs LITERALLY cannot finish it?
>OUR DEV TEAM CAN EASILY FIGHT THIS BOSS WE'VE BEEN TESTING OVER AND OVER AGAIN
yeah, i'm glad the game is so poorly balanced that 12 randoms can't fight a boss but 1 shitty rogue build can
>rogue is so OP it's the meta and only way to actually kill the boss with decent times
I had no problem killing the boss in less than 10 minutes as a barb with two worthless skellymancers and one level 15 dead weight. You're probably just really bad at this ez childrens game. Sorry bro.
look i killed it with 8 minutes to spare but having to deal with scrubs dying the entire fight 3 seperate times on WORLD TIER 1 made me think i SHOULD try soloing it, some people just straight up die every blade swing
yeah, having trouble? Just world hop until you find rogues with orbs circling them, they are using the meta build and will delete it
You are only here complaining because you are completely braindead and you had 11 other people in your group who were as equally braindead as you, and thus you couldn't defeat the boss as 12 people, meanwhile 1 guy can solo it.
Nta but huge coping here, you dont need to rely on other people just solo it. You arent entitled to victory. Druid can solo it as well.
dude you're such shit if you didnt kill him. the only problem is the low level scrubs trying to kill ashava
I always have a tough time starting a new character because shit is so boring and you have no synergies. Once I got my dual wield barbarian up and running for infinite core skills vs. stunned enemies and I could kick and tackle enemies into walls for stuns I was have a blast. It plays very very janky, but fun nonetheless. I was basically killing the level 30 boss vampire up north at level 20 with no legendaries.
>Use lunging strike on barbarian
>Ear splitting BOOM sound effect for each and every hit
That can't be intentional, can it?
I noticed that too lol
it sounds like it packs more punch than the core skills or death blow
in d2r every build is pretty much viable. there are a few winners ofc but everything just werks. is d4 like this?
D2R has shitty and janky 20 year old gameplay. Diablo 4 is actually fun.
>Diablo 4 is actually fun.
Diablo 4 Immortal
I'm not paying 100USD for this
What's wrong with this? Looks like Diablo 3 kino
it's a "special" chest that disconnects you
you lose the loot and the key
What exactly are these webms meant to prove? Are you attempting to pass it off as some sort of "you need to pay money to open them" or something?
why do interns get so upset at gameplay?
>attempt to spread misinformation
>get called out
>wHy dO iNtErNs gEt sO uPsET aT gAmePlaY???????
>attempt to spread misinformation
it is straight from the game(D4)
diablo fucking immortal style
down to the gambling coins needed to open them
Diablo Immortal would have been a great game if it wasn't for the P2W aspects. The gameplay is easily better than some 20 year old jank that ends with a 2.
>If it doesn't have a marker on the map telling me where to go at all times it's jank!
D2 is old, clunky, and not very fun if you don't have nostalgia for it.
So is D3, except nobody has nostalgia for it. Strange then that they decided to make D4 almost identical to D3.
>So is D3
D3 is literally the smoothest ARPG out there in terms of combat, movement, responsiveness, etc. What the fuck are you talking about?
Play poe blizztard
go back you retarded gay shill
I don't get it.
>Werewolf is centered around poison, not bleed
it's a call back to diablo 2 where rabies with poison dmg was one of the core skills of a werewolf build.
Bleed as a mechanic back then didn't exist. But yeah, I actually really do agree with you they should have made werewolf do bleed.
>bleed as a mechanic didn't exist
Well, in terms of class skills.
You didn't complete the demo until you beat the world boss at least once.
Next world boss spawns in 27 minutes.
Anyone know how to pick items up? I'm pressing everything and it's still on the ground
t. Never played diablo
Nevermind. Think it was bugged. It was X and I pressed it 10 times before but suddenly just worked.
>this is the type of a player you get at all your ashava attempts
Fucker it wasn't my fault.
it's actually incredible they made a shapeshifting druid actually cringe and not that fun to play
how about just letting us go full retard into one archetype and they differ significantly, not this cringe skill system
god the skill tree is actually awful
just an abomination
even d3 was better and more fun
>waaah wahh wahh wahhh
Cry more entitled baby. You're buying it anyway.
I'm actually not
my gf is coming over from overseas and I literally have zero time to play it
the beta was just confirmation the endgame will be schlock and I can wait for PoE 2 for an actually good succession to diablo
cope, seethe, and most importantly, dialate
Uh huh. You're still buying it even if it's years down the line. You know it deep down.
>the beta was just confirmation the endgame will be schlock
How in the fuck are you able to determine what endgame will be like from just playing 20-25 levels of early game? You "people" are so fucking insane.
>early game is just Diablo 3
Stands to reason end game will also just be Diablo 3. I mean what the fuck do you think they're going to do, NOT re-use the same game mechanics they've re-used for every single one of their games released in the past 15 years? You think it's going to turn into Dark Souls or something after you get to a certain level? Fucking retard
You are the retard here. You play a character to level 20 and you're fully convinced that you know what all the endgame activities are going to be like, what it's like to be level 100, what it's like to have full legendaries/uniques, what it's like to have the ~200 points of paragon points for the paragon board, etc. etc.
Not to mention that it's a game that's literally going to evolve constantly due to them taking the PoE approach where there will be a big patch every 3 months that introduces a new big gameplay element.
>what it's like to be level 100, what it's like to have full legendaries/uniques, what it's like to have the ~200 points of paragon points for the paragon board, etc. e
It will be exactly like it was in Diablo 3, because all of those things came from Diablo 3. Are you braindead?
because you can get an idea of what the developers are going for, you nonce
its deeper than diablo 3? absolutely
but it will ultimately be a similar grind. grind out legendary aspects, enchant them to whatever run of the mill rare shit you find, then just slowly grind out small stat upgrades
don't get me wrong. absolutely BETTER than diablo 3
but way too much daily MMO tier content and running around doing "quests" for my liking
holy fuck i managed to wake up 10 minutes ago
i rush my ass to the world boss half asleep on wt2
im still the only one doing consistent damage and not dying to the dragon
only 20% hp gone after 5 minutes
do i REALLY have to go to wt1? REALLY? this is a baby easy game and you're STILL dying to the dragon bite telegraphed move?
You HAVE gotten a sub 5 Ashava kill right?
>World Tier 1
I probably could on 1. I killed him on Tier 2 in 9 minutes.
This is my first time playing and I had an easy time with Sorc on wt2. I don't know how you would even find it remotely challenging.
I just tried wt1 ashava and it escaped with about 5% of its health. There was a necro and two <lvl 20s.
It's fucking mmo raiding again. I quit FFXIV exactly because of these retards.
can you even jump in this shit?
Boring shitty game
Diablo 4 is in a different league
Everything in that webm is in D4 as well.
>cooldown: 17 seconds
YOU WANT FUN VIDEO GAME????????? FUCK YOU, HERE COOLDOWN!
what the fuck is a lucky hit
is "critical" considered offensive now
Lucky hit are basically procs. Every ability has a different baseline %. There also some fuckery where you can only score a lucky hit after a crit and then they can multiply each other, but that's late late game stuff.
fuck your cooldowns
No cooldowns means the you just keep jumping like a retard as in that webm. That paired with no resource constraints makes for mindless gameplay.
Wow 2 whole buttons!
was pretty sure i was going to eventually buy it but after this server slam it's unlikely
i was kinda looking forward to it, finally an interesting game in 2023 but no
if it goes live like this then oh boy it's going to be 98% sorc and rogue and everything else garbage
Barb and Druid suck at low levels, but are powerhouses at max level. Necro will be determined entirely on how much they fuck up minions.
minions were fucked up in the previous beta at lv25 because anything above white tier enemies would just 2 shot them
they nerfed it, so take a guess at how shit the minions are now
They're currently doing last-minute adjustments to Necro minions - https://twitter.com/RodFergusson/status/1657611320093712384
They quickly realized that they nerfed them way too hard and are now trying to find some kind of middleground. That's why I wrote that it depends entirely on what they settle on for release.
bro there's less than 6 hours left
There's still ~20 days until the early launch. They'll probably do some more internal testing. Keep in mind that they need to make sure stuff works at max level way more than at low levels.
Having said that though, I am definitely not rolling a Necro at launch. Not gonna be so reliant on them balancing minions and the minion AI.
just go full bonespear memes literally a 2 button build
if theyre nerfing shit for a "beta" which only goes to lvl 20
assume they will heavily nerf the game once people can go max lvl
This is unfortunately true. Anytime a build that's remotely fun or good will get nerfed into mediocrity for the sake of 'balance'. They do it with WoW constantly and just as heavy handed.
Not sure if it's because of the open world or pvp but the outlook doesn't look promising for fun builds to last beyond a patch cycle. I don't know why they think nerfing the only fun parts of the game is a good idea.
What is the point of an RPG if every single build performs the exact same? If you can't have standout builds then what is even the point of talent trees?
game devs don't play games anymore and they're too mind fucked to know what fun is
LMAO they are micro nerfing the game now?
i'm just so tired of the WoW tier balancing act
why can't things be fun and powerful? why nerf and turn everything into a slog? Blizzard can never lift people up only drag them down and for a gaming company this blows my damn mind
I've gotten five legos on this sorcerer. Not bad, considering that he's only been level 20 for about an hour. A bunch dropped from that world boss. I had blue pants the whole damn game until I gambled all of my coins and finally got legendary pants (never even got rare up to that point).
Almost wrote the game off completely after playing druid and not liking it then I played a rogue got to 20 and yeah it's pretty good
The game really overstays its welcome.
Enemies take too long to kill. Dungeons are way too long and tedious/repetitive.
>Enemies take too long to kill.
Depends on your class. If you are playing a druid or barb, you're gonna have a bad time.
It's boring with every class.
Then you just don't like ARPGs.
Really? I like Diablo 2 and PoE, even Torchlight 2 was better
Then you're just being dishonest.
I don't think so Blizzdrone, Diablo 4 is slow and boring.
>Enemies take too long to kill
You're level 20. It will be completely different at max level.
>Dungeons are way too long and tedious/repetitive.
Dungeons will take half the time at max level, and it should be way less tedious and repetitive with the nightmare dungeon keys + affixes and other stuff.
What's a good sorc build? I mostly did ice last beta, trying out lightning and fire this time around but wasn't really feeling the former and fire kind of feels like it lacks impact. Ice at least brought CC and vuln.
Max Arc Lash
Max Charge Bolt
1 pt into Fire Armor/Ice Armor/Frost Nova/Teleport
take whatever passives you want with what's left, more if you can find a piece with +1 to Defensive skills
Also forgot, 1 point into Fireball and then set it as your enchant. Makes anything that you kill blow up and it can chain reaction
Thanks Anon I'll try that out.
redpill me on this
i had fun but i need to know Ganker's opinion so i can be part of the hivemind
some part of me want to buy this but i know its going to be shit on release so i'll just wait
nu-Ganker has already written off the game due to it being $70, because 80% of this site can't afford it since they're third worlders and poors.
The objective reality is that D4 launch is in a much better state than D3 launch, and if they keep up the 3 month patch cycle like PoE, then there's a very good chance this could easily become a 9/10 ARPG in due time around when they launch their first expansion.
I don't like MMOs and it feels like a MMO to me so I'll never like it. I'm also salty that mainline Diablo is now a MMO series instead of this being a spin off game. If you like MMOs then enjoy with tens of millions of other people.
Just killed Ashava, shit beta, level 20 is too low to have even a little bit of fun with builds, but it's ok never gonna buy at full price anyway lmao.
>hope this time the story isn't dogshit
>it's another Leahblo story arc
Diablo 3 - Corruptic Boogalo confirmed
I'm so glad I have to escort this precocious girl seeking knowledge around again while she talks about nonsense. Blizzard really tapping into what made d3 great. Again.
BarbCHADS, how are we feeling about the class right now?
It's exactly like the D2 barb. Shit.
Fuck you D2 barb is great.
Agreed, they definitely need to be much tankier so they can actually afford to make a tactical decision to trade hits and soak a mechanic for the opportunity to do damage.
Barb just needs a few small adjustments and it will be great. One thing for example is that they need to make Rend a 360 circle around you. It was like that in D3, not sure why the fuck they changed it for D4. Something tiny like that would go a long way.
They also need to realize that melee will always be weaker if bosses are going to have actual mechanics, so they need to be compensated somehow.
>They also need to realize that melee will always be weaker if bosses are going to have actual mechanics, so they need to be compensated somehow.
The open world boss had mechanics that only affected range though.
That's 1 world boss. There's gonna be like 100 other bosses in dungeons.
Ashava literally has fuck you range mechanics throughout the fight, the only annoying mechanic melee gets is the double claw rake after like 50%(?).
If this fight is designed this way, I'd imagine others are going to be the same. Melee gets the openers and a new melee centric mechanic is introduced later where range gets a breather. Or visa-versa.
>the only annoying mechanic melee gets is the double claw rake after like 50%(?)
There is a safe zone right on his asshole. If you stand in the middle the claws go on the sides. It's actually great for melee because the claws animation is quite long and he just stands there getting raped.
So what's the point of the hotfix if there won't be any time to test the changes? Doesn't the beta end in a couple hours?
It ends at 3:00 PM PDT. Though the final world boss spawn is in a couple of hours.
imagine all those people that didnt get the horse dildo in time... oh no no
Couldn't be me, I killed it twice, once on Druid and once on Sorc.
Some people will get genuinely upset about it I'm sure. It will be fun to read forums after it ends.
They could've gave Lilith a hotter body.
>everyone complaining about nerfs and buffs when all it takes is ONE broken legendary at end game to completely make or break a build
literally none of this matters right now, Rogue's twisting blades BS is just the one skill with a broken early game legendary - there will be way more of those at higher levels
play the class you find aesthetically appealing
>in a single player ARPG
play the fucking game, white boy
>Played Diablo 4 for the first time this weekend. Played Necro up to lvl 10 & quit.
>Got a sorcerer to 20 but has been challenging.
>FOMO some shit cosmetic behind a boss that only spawns every 3 hours and despawns in a few minutes if you dont kill it in time with your rng group of randoms
You just know release is going to be fucking SHIT if they already fuck this up, not buying this garbage game
All of those words, when you could have just written "I am terrible at the game" instead. You had NINE different chances to kill the world boss and you had 15 minutes each time, with the assistance of 11 other players, and you could have even dropped to WT1 to make it easier as well.
Here's a guy doing it 100% solo on WT2. Git gud - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TDqd22RyG-o
No one cared nor asked for the opinion of some e-gay who lives breathes and shits this game
He's not the norm, nor the standard
fighting overleveled world bosses on the higher difficulty is not the norm either
>"it's literally impossible!!"
>gets proven it's not
>"NOOOOOOO NOT LIKE THAT!!!!"
So you couldn't make it, eh?
Dont you have 90 euro to spend paypiggy?
I don't care for and will never participate in the dumb lite MMO bullshit
When it spawned last, we killed it with eight minutes remaining. As long as you have a full group of 20's it's fine. If you see some sub-20's hanging around, leave and come back to a new instance.
I just didn't have fun.
Also the world boss thing was actually impossible to beat on the world 2 difficulty, I had to knock it down to 1, turns out it wasn't me, they just didn't adjust it from the last beta, but nerfed all the characters, so it was ACTUALLY impossible. Retarded.
>so it was ACTUALLY impossible
wudijo literally solo'd it on WT2.
ah, yes, the ONE class that received buffs.
If 12 people can't do the same damage as ONE SOLO guy, then there's something wrong in the heads of those 12 people.
The boss scales to number of people in the instance
Anon above just posted some autist soloing it and here you are claiming it's actually impossible.
>people itt defending Blizzard for their shit decisions
>people say retarded shit
>get called retarded
and we'll do it all again tomorrow. First summer here?
Anyone not get ashava achievement
Why do Barbs and druids look like absolute down syndrome mutts? What mentally ill chud they have in charge of character design?
I think shit like the world boss might be easier with a controller, because you can just move your character freely with the analog stick instead of having to click the ground. With so much positional damage, and with the boss being so big, it's sometimes hard to get behind it and scoot up to its tail where the safe zone is for 99% of the fight. With a controller it's no problem.
Probably should have implemented WADS movement as an option.
I simply won't be giving blizzard any money
is Druid still absolute garbage?
Some builds are ok, but still needs some work overall for sure.
Incredible how many babies on Ganker expect a participation trophy for playing during the stress test.
I killed Ashava three times, helping friends during the second two kills. Just do it on world tier 1, it's a fucking cakewalk.
It was legit dogshit on the first spawn, but I don't know if they have nerfed it since then or if there just aren't so many sub-20's running around. I've killed it twice and it wasn't that hard, had plenty of time left on the second. About to kill it for a third time in this next spawn.
>it takes 2.5 to 3 hours to hit level 20
it doesnt help they nerfed every class, but druid into oblivion because druid was already shit.
Boss dead again. Dropped another two legos. I have a Lego in all but two slots now.
>Keep failing world boss
>Remember you can do it on easy difficulty for the same achievement
>Kill it with 5 minutes to spare
you didn't really beat the world boss.
friend helped me get to lvl 20 with like 15 minutes to spare, got the final ashava spawn kill wooo. no trophy unlock yet though? guess it's in the full game only
>just make summons really strong
>you can just sit at the graveyard near the main town
>most events the monsters will come to you.
>other people always come so the event is constantly up
>have max donuts quickly
>go gamble for legendarys
>rinse and repeat
why would anyone play this when D2R exists...?
combats better. simple as
because D2R is pure ass.
