    what's the issue? shouldn't it be nearly impossible so that only the best can do it?

    Haven't done Inferno, but in NM/Hell, the big problem for me is that regular mobs are too easy, while the random groups of elite mobs are way too difficult. They need to seriously tone down the elites and give (some) of the random white mobs at least a small buff.

    people are getting thru inferno. IMO, that makes it too easy. They need another even harder mode where it would be years before anyone even made it to the skeleton king.

    Call it the "have you lost your mind?" mode

    yea few players made it through inferno mode, its INSANE.

    the black guy in the video is the barbarian and the white guy in the video is my monk. 2 player mode inferno mode.

    If it is too hard, then you're just bad. I fully support a difficulty where not everyone can make it all the way through. It actually means you're a skilled player when you complete Inferno.

    if you'd beat it, it woulda been to easy ;)

    The people that are "beating Inferno" are the ones skipping the champion mobs, elites, or corpse jumping to progress.  The boss fights are still hard but way easier then the champion/named mob cominations that are encountered.  Inferno is only hard because everyone gets 1-3 shotted.

    For the people stating skill is the key to success.


    Tell me how so? I'm on Hell mode at the moment, and I have every intention of beating nightmare as well. I can understand the difficulty but I see no skill envolved. It really is just grinding gear. Whether you buy it from the AH or you get some very lucky drops, its just getting better gear. There is no skill in that, its just time investment versus reward.


    Please do not say its skill beacuse it's really not. There are no bragging rights in this game, and for that matter what are bragging rights anyway a what 0.5 sec glitch in your mind in which you think people outside yourself actually care that you beat the hardest difficulty in the game. I'm making my way through Hell difficulty same as nightmare, same as normal. A few tweaks here and there and I'll do the same to Inferno. And Yes I know inferno is way way harder than the hell so I'm prepared for that, but its not at all a skill based thing.

    First we had threads about how the game is easy. It was the time when people were playing normal.

    Now they got to higher difficulties and we have threads like this game is too hard.

    Makes a diablo vet smile.

    Here's the thing OP..

    Diablo is designed to appeal to a broad range of gamers, from the casual to the ultra hardcore.

    When you hit the limit of what you can do, that's when you find out how good you are as a player & for some that's just something they will not like, finding out they are not as good as they thought they were.

    However, if it means a lot to you, play the game a lot & you will get better over time.

    Calling for nerfs is just silly in the context of this game.

  • DJJazzyDJJazzy louisville, COPosts: 2,053Member Common

    It's not difficult, it just requires a time investment.

    Personally I find the varying difficulties a boring design (unless each difficulty actually had different features besides just increased health and damage from the enemies).

  • JaylanonyousJaylanonyous Fairfield, CAPosts: 31Member

     the problem is, you cant do it alone. Even if you are really good. If you can, you are using a spec that will be nerfed and fast, wizards for example, or you are using tricks and running through to the end. 

    I rather play diablo alone and hated inferno, even when i was playing a wizard pre nerf. It was more of a, how many times will i die, or how many times do i have to reset the instance because this random mob is impossible, for me to progress. I dont mind a difficult game, but making somthing. Invulnarble / run fast / more health / waller is just dumb. Along with the random loot bs.


    It's just too random and not worth it

    Thank you, while this is a good game. By know means is this skill based. As some have stated it separate who is good versus harcore or really good. No it doesn't it's just time investment. Based on the fact not many things change in this game except damage and increased health. That's not skill, and it does not make you a better gamer as anyone with "time" can get to that same point, your just moving at a faster pace.

    If it was broken and impossimble , one of the most succesfull mmo companies in the world wouldnt release it. Some ppl dunno what to hate , u just need to farm good GOOD gear first . Not jump after hell to inferno and say omg its difficult plz nerf noob blizzard, i cant think anyone else except 10 years old kids who think like that really

    They said over and over you nee dto farm hell mode  to gear up for inferno if you go straight into inferno you will not like the results stop crying man up or go play hello kitty online.

    You know I keep hearing different things about this. On the forums people say that hell mode does not drop inferno gear but instead to farm Act 1 Inferno. Which makes a lot of sense.

    Still when I finish Hell I'm going to try out Act 1 and see how I feel about it. Honestly I'll probably slow down to a snaisl pace and farm that one Act until I'm significantly satisfied and then move on to Act 2. Around this same time I think I'll level my demon hunter up a bit see how I feel about him.

  • Bobbie203Bobbie203 bristol, NYPosts: 136Member

    Im not saying diablo 3 is hard, i just think inferno mode is overtuned. Hell mode is fine, its decently challenging but yea i tried to go from hell mode to inferno mode. And inferno kicked my ass hardcore, no room for error.

    Who said anything about diablo 3 being easy thats normal and nightmare mode.



  • Crunchy221Crunchy221 Trollsberg, ILPosts: 489Member

    I think inferno should be what it is...insanely hard.

    My only issue is the reports of being shoe-horned into one build.

    For instance, im a witch doctor...i chose him for the summons.  In inferno all summoned creatures get one shotted...which is fine i guess only that the entire mechanics behind my character is removed.  So many other skills can be runed to play off my summons ect...would be nice to have that OPTION come inferno.

    Ive seen the build that people are using and, while its interesting, i see no point in having such variety in skills and runes if only one works.

    Thats just for Witch Doctor, others exist...and i hear melee classes have it rough since even with tanky builds they need to kite...which defeats the purpose of a melee class imo.


    I think inferno is fine, just that a few skills need to be tweaked perhaps..then they can add a secret difficulty level after inferno where no one can beat it..just to laugh at people.

  • ChrisboxChrisbox Monroe, NJPosts: 1,713Member Uncommon

    The thing is, inferno isn't difficult.  Instead of requiring more skill and tactics, they just give everything 1 hit capability which yes does make it difficult but not in the right way.


  • slowpoke68slowpoke68 Chicago, ILPosts: 417Member Uncommon

    I'm assuming this is WoWized Diablo, which means its 90 percent gear.  Also, since there is a pay 2 win option, anyone should be able to get through Inferno eventually.  Depends on how much time you want to spend farming or how much money you want to spend on the AH.

    To those saying there is skill involved in beating a modern Blizzard game, you are deluding yourselves.


  • ZezdaZezda Posts: 686Member Uncommon

    Only 1.9% of the entire playerbase have even unlocked inferno mode. Inferno mode is designed to be extremely taxing on both gear and skill requirements. There is no comparison to be made in anything D2 done to what Inferno represents in D3.

    The reason people are finding it difficult is because they have lowered the rate at which we find 'good' items to make up for the fact that we now have access to an easy way to trade items between players rather than joining random games in D2.

    Everyone you see 'farming' inferno does the same thing, they stack as much damage as possible and then zerg down whatever they can. Do you see anyone in hardcore farming anything past act 1 in inferno? No, you don't. And the reason for that is that it is difficult and requires you approach it a certain way.

    I suggest you read the following blog post that got put out today by Blizzard regarding the progress of D3 so far. Key parts to read are the parts mentioning that most people attempting inferno are severely undergeared compared to what is both possible and expected as well as the part mentioning the intended difficulty and how they are attempting to balance skills in relation to items.

    The real benchmark for wether the content is too hard or not is going to lie with the hardcore players, if they are unable to do it then it's too hard. They cannot pay 2 win, they cannot zerg content. It will take them time to gear for it appropriately but by all accounts from those who are in the know (and from my personal experience of inferno content) it is 100% possible to complete in hardcore give the current level of gear that can be obtained.

  • Bobbie203Bobbie203 bristol, NYPosts: 136Member

    still too hard, inferno mode gave me a wake up call. I've hit a wall.

    the mobs in act 2 will chew you up and spit you out if you make a marginal error. Inferno has no mercy, and drink  upon your QQ tears hardcore.


    Difficulty between hell mode and inferno mode is night and day.

    hell mode= bull dogs difficulty, Inferno mode= Lions, tigers, leopards, and wild bears mode and wont hesistate to chew you up and spit you out.

    @slowpoke68 Diablo games have always been about gear ... Well, and potion spamming.
