    Yeah, frogs might be interesting, sounds like you get into melee range quite a bit. At least the spider jar animation is pretty fast when you're dumping them at your feet instead of a screen lob. I was using a GotD combo with SH at one point too, but for some reason, got hung up on throwing the haunt dots into rooms lol.

    The SH int boost is amazing though, you're right.

        The jars do pop out quite fast when you have an atk speed of 2 per sec. :-) I wonder if the spider queen rune looks like the sc 2 queen. I think that would be kinda funny if it did. There will be lots of hours on this game for sure.

            I want to like Diablo 3, I really do. (just like I wanted to like StarCraft 2 - that never happened ). But everything I've seen, read, heard, and played is just... 'meh'.

            I'm not touching the game until I get a consensus a few weeks/months after release.

              that was a really fun class but only comes up as my second fav. I like the fact that he's soo fast and his mantras look cool but never used them.

                It is very different from the last game, that's for sure. I was worried about the game until I got into beta which changed my mind. I do miss a few things like an offline mode or a higher difficulty for the start of the game but I did grow to love the skill system. Although it does cause a hugh problem once you get all the characters to lv 60. At that point the game is finished so to say. What is it about the game that bothers you?

                  I did play the beta, a few months ago. Mostly, I don't like the classes. In D2, I loved Necromancers, Druids, and Assassins. D3 doesn't have an analogue to any of them - the closest being Necro -> Witch Doctor, but that class rubs me the wrong way. Zombies aren't half as cool as golems and skeletal mages. Lack of coolness aside, WD doesn't fit into my perception of the Diablo universe.

                  There's a lot of small things about D3 that bother me that are too vague to put into words. This review does a good job of pointing them out. (Be warned that it's extremely negative, I just agree with the gist of it )

                    Heh, if I understand it right, his grand epiphany about diablo is that it's "just about getting loot"?

                    Quick, someone call medierra and tell him to take all the loot out of Grim Dawn to fix it and make it a better game.
                    Praise the sun!

                      Those were my fav classes as well hahahah. I find the WD to be a good necromancer replacement but its all personal preference. The DH on the other hand i do not like one bit. She plays like the assassin and Amazon mixed together which doesnt fit well with me.

                      That article did have a few points that i did agree with like the kiddy difficulty it has but that has yet to be seen if what they say is true about how difficult the game will actually get. I hope it will not fail to impress cause im looking foward to the so called brutal Inferno level.

                        I guess the beta had the opposite effect on me. It really turned me off to the game where i had been practically holding my breath for 10 years. There's so much i don't like about it, but anyway, i couldn't really be bothered to play it after the first run through with a monk, and i've had the beta for months. I tried the hunter - or whatever it's called... escapes me atm, and a warrior with my brother on the open beta weekend again just to see what they did with it...a few things were better, for sure that they got rid of the dumb shrines for changing out your skills... but...meh.
                        Honestly to me it feels like any number of Diablo knock off or ftp
                        game or something, the graphics or meh, the monsters are meh, the action is super meh, the world is really meh, not epic feeling at all.. Dunno, but would have to give it another chance in release to be fair, but i'm not really excited about it.

                        The small amount of Grim Dawn i've seen so far is far more in line with what i would have hoped for D3, graphically, ambiance, and action wise.

                          Damn.. that dude is pissed. I wonder if he knows it's just a game and not a sign of the end times.

                            Ive already argued enough with people that complain about D3,

                            While i agree and understand some of the complaints, but.. hey its too easy.. hmmph have you died in D2 act 1? TQ act 1? Torchlignt.. sure hope you did not

                            Lack of customization? because you cant put stats? yeah you ended up getting the str required for your most desired item, then putting rest in vit.. how is that customization

                            So on and so forth.

                            If people do not want to play the game, fine, i know i will, and probably for the many years to come

                              Heh. I'm not saying it cannot be fun. It will just be a quite long slog through "pitiful" difficulty if you can't skip directly to nightmare.

                              But while it might be fun - eventually - it's not 60,- fun.

                                and you're saying any fist difficulty in any of those game was hard? if so we did not play the same game.

                                You played 1h of a game that might take 20 to complete a difficulty first time through and expect to die all the time?

                                I'm sorry, but i dont expect to die 900 times in GD either on the first difficulty.
                                TQ didnt do it
                                D2 Didnt do it
                                TL didnt do it
