Lack of Diablo 3 endgame content answered
The lack of Diablo 3 endgame content has been acknowledged by Blizzard and they have answered the problem with the new ‘Paragon System’, which is coming in patch 1.0.4. This patch is expected to look into issues with Magic Find gear-swapping giving players who have reached level 60 an extended progression system, according to the developer.
Once you have hit level 60, any further experience you accumulate from killing monsters will start to go toward Paragon levels. Reporting Blizzard’s comments CVG mention the 100 Paragon levels, which reward players with each level adding to stats such as, Strength, Intelligence, Vitality and Dexterity, in similar amounts to that experienced in a normal level. This will extend the endgame longevity and they detail all the information on this.
In other relevant news Gaming Blend report on the resentment among fans of different titles and that the designers of both Diablo 2 and 3 are not the same. With this in mind, there are many fanboys of the individual games and their designers and this is where some hostility has come into play. It seems that one of the Diablo II designers, David Brevik has reiterated fans comments about why there is a dislike for the third game and lead designer of Diablo 3, Jay Wilson replied by saying “F*ck that loser.”
Before we all clutch our handbags and say oow! It is worth referring to an interview with Diablo II designer David Brevik, as he mentions many of the problems involved in the current game including the auction house. His comments on this show a great understanding of what gamers have been complaining about, as well as suggestions that have been made to Blizzard since the release of Diablo 3. Keeping on the subject of Diablo III, in our last post concerning this game we wrote about patch 1.0.4, which improves Legendary items and the feedback that has prompted the development team to deal with these problems. Do you feel that Jay Wilson is getting so agitated by the truth that this has caused him to reply in such an aggressive manner?
