Official Diablo 3 Thread

Starting mammoth thread here without the Savious fanboi stuff. Post here for your progress, group setup, etc. Since there's no "server" or faction, DSLR should be able to come together into a single group if people need a place.

I'm not sure if there are going to be any guilds, but if there are, I'll set one up. I'll find some sort of common channel that we can communicate on in-game.

Think I'm going to start with a Witch Doctor.

I was wondering when the official Thread was going to show up.

40 hours left or so. I'm pretty psyched.

I'll try and find some of you guys after I get home on Tuesday night.

Debating between a Demon Hunter and Witch Doctor for my first build. Leaning more towards the Witch Doctor though...I loved my Necromancer in D2 and the WD seems to be the closest to that, but I may still end up with a DH at some point. By the time I stopped playing D2, I had one of every class in the 90's range of levels, but I had a lot more time to play back then.

Of all the various classes, I feel like the Witch Doctor is going to be the least played.

I think Jobbie is the only other person I know who is starting with a WD.

I really did like the Demon Hunter in beta, but I'm also thinking of the monk for the utility. Just not sure yet...

Going with a DH and/or a Wizard. I say and/or because I will probably start one first thing on Tuesday then another when my kid comes down on the weekend and start with him.

After playing them all in the beta I am likely going to start with the Barbarian, and then go Demon Hunter. I really enjoyed the playstyle especially once you get rend and the rune that heals you for the damage you deal. They really play like warriors from WoW on the beta and I liked the mobility.

I guess I might as well buy it now since BLIZZARD GAMES NEVER GO ON SALE

This is one of my favorite things about the barbarian!

For some reason, it didn't seem to happen as much with any of the other classes. It happened, but to a lesser extent.

I'll be starting out as a DH or Barbarian. I played them all in Beta and enjoyed the DH most. The Barbarian is just a fun class when you want to destroy anything... and everything for that matter.

I'll say that's not true. Even Blizz themselves put SC2 on sale. You can find deals here and there. Like futureshop had 5 dollars off preorder etc.

I've read nothing about D3.

I will play it and enjoy it. I will probably do it wrong and I'm okay with that.

Yup...agreed. Same thing I did with Skyrim....completely stayed away from any outside info, except to get around major bugs...enjoyed it immensely.

@cox.net

May be a dumb and/or already answered question. Just curious, do character names have to be unique on what realm/server your on? Just trying to get sorted for tomorrow nights launch. Thanks much for any input.

I was under the impression that the naming system was going to be handled just like Starcraft 2.

I believe it goes by battle tag and not what you name your character as far as what the server displays as your name.

I'm going Witch Doctor too. I'm going to join up with a bunch of guys on another website, all of them are rolling barbs and wizards.

I played all the classes in open beta weekend besides the WD. Enjoyed the barbarian the most and will start with that one. I should be on to play tomorrow, EST.

I am stating my opinion. Obviously you don't like it. Honestly, I don't care.

How long until you figure we'll see price drops on this? What's the generally cycle for single player games? I will be picking this up to give it a go, but likely not until some 50% off sales or something...

I think this will depend on how the RMAH goes. If blizz is making good money on it (though their cut), they may sell the game for a lower price expecting to recoup costs through this other means. Based on a typical blizzard game though... I wouldn't hold my breath.

You may be waiting a while for 50% off. Star Craft 2 has been out how long? And it's still $45.99 on Amazon...

Skyrim had it's first (AFAIK) 30% off sale on Steam this past weekend, approximately 6 months after it was released.
