Hard is not that hard

Playing at level 25 nearing the end of chapter 2 playing at hard with my templar and comming to the conclusion that its actually still very easy and not really challenging...


but then on the other hand, wreaking havoc and carnage, makes you feel o so good...... Enjoying the stories very much... Its one of those games that you play when you dont have full concentration...


i like how the skill system works, and am still wondering why they never added some exciting PvP modes, like a DOTA and other scenarios..

    It can be as hard or easy as you want it to be. That was the whole point of getting rid of the requirement that you complete each difficulty in sequence. Crank it up to master and see how that goes.

    By templar you mean crusader i presume. 

    Hard difficulty isn't really hard in D3. Furthermore, crusaders got buffed in recent patches to the point where one can call them overpowered. My average geared crusader breezes through torment 3 at the moment.

    This is video game grade inflation. The game can be hard .. but you have to get to torment to get it. And it is also challenging to be efficient (as opposed just survive and kill the elites).

    BTW, the game has just got infinite challenge. Greater Rifts will become harder and harder, and never ends.

    Hard is just a name. If hard is not hard enough, crank it up. Higher torment difficulties and you will feel the pain.

    The difficulty in Diablo 3 just adds more mob HP and different pack types (like buffs on packs of mobs) it gets a little harder near the end on hard, but I'm pretty sure the first time me and my girlfriend played it together on the newer difficulty system we did it on expert which was an okay difficulty. On my 70 characters I tend to do higher torment levels which are insanely difficult.

    Well, they have decreased the difficulty a lot with every game, the first Diablo was far harder.

    D2 was far far easier than what D3 offers in terms of difficulty. i played D1 on playstation so i can't comment about that but i have my doubts.  the only way you could get any kind of challenge from D2 was to pvp.

    Yep Diablo 3 has alot more to offer, challenge wise, then any Diablo did previously. A big part of the challenge of D3 is seeing how much higher you can get in Grifts then other players as well.

    Lol. What do you expect at difficulty level 2 of 5? Hard is a breeze especially if you're not new and have gold and items to craft gear -- it is a gear-based game you know.

    I routinely play Hardcore Expert now and even that's pretty easy. The hardcore bit adds some extra spice as well.

    RIFT Level 50+ becomes HARD then 60+ becomes interesting

    75+ is the RIFT Level you want

    I would like to see anyone who says this game is not hard post a video of them soloing greater rift 89, preferably in hardcore.

    There are, what, less than 10 in the US who have done that?

    The highest torment level is not that hard in D3 IMO - my monk can still do it pretty easy.

    If you want hard - try Devilian 9man Raid - it was added last patch - so far nobody has been able to beat it on any server in NA or EU.
