Diablo 3 is a quality game, I'm not here to bash to bash it, it's just not my type.
In fact I only have one real complaint that the game is FAR TO EASY. I've been slightly warned of this and chose to ignore the warnings, so this is my fault. However even this could be a lack of knowledge that I can't seem to find answers. Let me explain:
Diablo 3 has a wide range of difficulties ranging from normal to high torment levels. Understand I'm new to this type of game, you would think I would be struggling. But surprisingly I only have three options Normal, Hard, and Expert the rest are grayed out, and Expert is a cake walk, in fact I can stress it enough how easy it is. I do have short moment's where a boss would two shot me, but even then I have an instant resurrection and know I have to be a LITTLE careful.
Now above I talked about a lack of knowledge. If I hover above the next grayed out level (Master), it states " locked out until completing Act 4 on first character. I'm level 28 and still Act 1............ By watching a tips YouTube the narrator talks about around level 6 go to Act 4........... I don't have a clue what his is talking about....... And besides, why ?....... It's just far too easy and for no good reason.
Now, putting easy aside, I would like to talk about why this TYPE of game is not for me:
I'm playing a Wizard, I'm sure class don't matter anyway, it's all the same. I have four ability slots and left and right mouse for a total of six. Each level I get a new ability. At level 28 I have many. Already far too many than I care since their basically redundant and for only 6 slots...... Since their so redundant I'm not even looking at them any more. I don't seem to care, I should but I don't, I have easily what I need for the rest of the game.
Here is my routine I believe I could do forever with out ever giving it more thought:
Step 1- Cast two 10 minuet buffs, "Magic Weapon" and "Summons a Familiar", both are simple damage buffs.
Step 2- Cast "Slow Time" a bubble that slows monsters and last about 10 seconds.
Step 3- Cast "Arcane Orb" (pulse) or "Disintegrate" (beam of light) until your mana runs dry.
Step 4- Cast "Spectral blade" until your mana builds.
Strategy- don't face-to-face bosses and jump out of puddles.
This is the game !.......... Like I say, it's not for me.
I'll close with a few notes :
- Runes are just simple enhancements. Set-it-and-forge-it
- Mixing skills just changes the SAME basic abilities and animations.
- Gear is just a mini game of study what drops. No strategy in getting better stuff.
You-get-it-if-it-drops. The game is liner, so it's just a roll of the dice as you come to the next boss.
