I am playing on hard difficulty and am currently enjoying the game way more than I did when I was playing in normal mode. The game is at least hard enough that I die more often and I love that. Before I was not dying at all and was boring me to tears.
I decided to try different classes and am currently enjoying playing the Demon Hunter. I was playing the monk but somehow it got a bit tiresome the Demon Hunter forces me to kite and play with more thought then merely smashing keys as the monk and also the resource management on the Demon Hunter is tougher.
My question since I am only playing on Hard mode and then I doubt very much I will try other difficulties will I get any benefit from buying Reaper of Souls. I don't like the Crusader and doubt I will play that but I am interested in the bounties and rifts. With the gear I get from hard will I be able to take advantage of the bounties and rifts or are those only for harder modes than "hard".
