At least we're not spending 30 minutes trying to log in like last night, eh? That was a disaster.

One of the main complaints I have about this game isn't the online only thing, nor the constant disconnects, or lame character builds.

But the fucking loot is BORING.

90% of the time I find myself crafting pure shit. For example:

A lvl 45 crafting item has a chance of getting 125-205 Armor and +3 Random magic attributes. These include getting any amount of primary stats, magic find, gold pickup radius (Yes, radius), etc. And even if you craft (Or God forbid find something) an item, it will almost always also include stats you don't need.

Why in the shit do I need Strength with INT? Or DEX for that matter? Where is my chance to instantly use a skill at random? Chance to proc a wizard ability? Instead, the best thing we get are things like reduced mana cost to abilities or increased dmg of said abilities by 15%

That's not fun at all.

But pushing that aside. It's a really solid game, and loads of fun by yourself or with three of your friends.

Nightmare mode is no joke. And I have seen people play on Hell and Inferno. Doing rediculous DPS and getting one shotted by rare elite mobs will never cease to amaze me

And never play on Hardcore for that matter.

E- I also want to poke fun at the Witch Doctor for a moment. Currently I have a lvl 45 witch doctor and let me first and formost say that zombie dogs are the fucking worst and I hate that. What a waste of an ability. Hell, why am I only limited to four?

Other abilities like Hex, Haunt, toads, etc I just...I don't get it. I like to lob exploding skulls at people and watch the fire erupt from everyone I see. Drain their souls while my INT climbs up +50% and just demolish everyone with the dead clasp ability.

Oh wait...I know why hex would be useful



Just kidding Hex sucks. Does not even work on rare mobs.

I can see how INT would be good on a STR item -- in the later levels (Hell, Inferno), the extra resistances on a Barbarian could definitely come in handy. Sure, probably not as much as VIT, but still. I'm sure the rare Inferno sets will have a nice mixture of stats on them.

lol, kinda awesome that I was first in line at the Midnight release, although I camped out 18 hours to get my hands on this game. Was it worth it? Maybe.



Over 800 people shown up. So yea. I also got a poster, T-shirt, and a free meal thanks to the managers.

E- Going to write the review. Stay tuned!

Same here. I liked the first Torchlight more than Diablo 2, and Torchlight 2 looks excellent.

Yeah I missed out on it unfortunately. How was the online / co-op handled? I think that's one of the best things about D3 so far, so hopefully Torchlight does a good job with that stuff as well. Don't the Torchlight games actually have one of the old composers too? (I know some of the old Blizzard staff supposedly makes those games).

The D3 music is excellent too though. A lot of it makes me think of the Zerg though, haha.

The first TL didn't have multiplayer at all, unfortunately. This is something that the sequel is going to remedy. But yeah, two of the guys who founded Blizzard North helped make this game.

Hey, if you guys want, I can also edit the OP with Tourchlight Information.

You can rename this thread into Diablo 3 / Tourchlight megathread if you guys wish.

Demon Hunter is ownage.

Still on Act III, damn I feel slow. But then again I'm about to hit 30 and I think I'm way higher leveled than some of my friends were when they were at this point. Guess it kind of pays off to take my time.

That's honestly my only issue with the game. Sometimes you get something really good for your level but at the same time there is something in there that is absolutely worthless.

And even if the item was perfect the game likes to try and throw in something that...ugh.

Thankfully, in the near future, a patch will buff all Legendary items to be actually worth a damn. In fact, they may be worth two damns. It won't retroactively make the previously found Legendaries any better, as it only applies to those found after the patch is implemented.
