Default relatively old man, new game

hi
another lover of Diablo 2 and Titan Quest...

ill get straight to business with the feedback...im hoping you will recapture the atmosphere, the vistas and the ambient music and keep the action -ragdoll-physique of enemies for instance \m/...
got over here, having just looked at the latest video via ign and i guess it was a rough, early taste of the gameplay? i think personally it looked a bit busy... but
it had maturer monsters and i liked that field-environment.

and itd be nice if you kept a type of defender-class, loved that mastery, with the skills like shield-smash and pulverize.
Brigand bower was another favourite.

Hi hedonismbot,

Feedback for the Occultist video:

In the video, I was playing a bit dramatically to emphasize action. I actually died many times trying to pull that off for the video. When you're watching a video, I think the game looks about 50% less exciting than it is when you're actually playing and are trying to stay alive yourself. So, you have to kind of play with a bit of reckless abandon at a faster pace to make a video look as exciting for those who are only watching it.

Under normal circumstances, I would probably go a bit slower. If I were playing hardcore mode (or maybe if I was a less skilled player), I would approach it totally differently, drawing out enemies, clearing out sections before I moved on, etc.
I think the Combat mastery (single class: Soldier) is for you then ... welcome to the forums.

Hi hedonismbot

Welcome! Yeah, it seems a lot of people loved the defense mastery. We'll definitely add something like that. Soldier is already sort of a mix of warfare / defense but in the future I'd like to have an even more defense / shield focused class. DUAL SHIELD WIELDING?!!
