As a follow up to my previous blog, I’ve decided to play Diablo 3. It’s exactly what I expected of the game. There wasn’t anything that lowered or raised the expectations to a point of being a Frisbee or an addiction that messes with my current lifestyle. This makes it a well worth purchase.
This is by far the most popular game at the workplace. There has been constant chattering about Diablo 3. It ranges from what level, items, progress, etc. These guys are very enthusiastic about the game. They would even talk to coworkers who don’t play pc games. I didn’t play until maybe a month after the release, but I’ve had multiple people from work and off work trying to persuade me to play.
Enough about my thoughts of the game and lets go into my current status in D3.
Level 60 Witch Doctor
400+ to All Resistance
15k DPS (40k damage per Zombie Bear)
Act 2 Inferno
Level 38 Barbarian
Resistance not important at the moment
Act 2 Nightmare
From my experience, I can solo all the way past Act 1 Inferno. Act 2 Inferno is no joke; it’s ridiculously hard. Don’t laugh at the amount of gold I have. I like buying gear from the Auction House.
Diablo III’s release is just around the corner. It seems as though we’ve been waiting a lifetime for this blockbuster title to emerge. Now we can all rejoice as it will be here in less than 2 weeks. BUT – I’m more looking forward to Guild Wars 2’s release. I had a chance to participate in beta last weekend. It was a great experience as 8 hours flashed by in the blink of an eye.
What really caught my eye was how fluid the combat system was as I slay my foes in close combat. Nothing is more epic than running around as an Elementalist, kiting mobs and casting spells without having to worry about breaking spell interruptions due to movement. This already 1UPs World of Warcraft Vanilla days (the only time when WoW was the best game I’ve ever played). With that in mind, GW2 gives me a solid reason to build again. It’s been 4 years since I last upgraded my PC. The long haul has made me feel less inclined to want to experience any awesome games on my rig because it has become dated in terms of performance. But now I can finally breathe life back into my PC by gathering together high-end components for my next build (YES, I’m going all out because really that’s the only way to build). I’m also stoked for The Elder Scrolls Online. It’s going to be a memorable experience to spam FUS RO DAH on party members! Can’t wait to try out D3 on not one, or two, but THREE GTX 680 GPU’s ;)
It’s GO TIME!
