only on normal, too expensive to upgrade to the nm/hell/inferno versions

actually upgraded my staff all the way to the inferno version and my friend (who was using my account) accidentally dropped it on the ground because it's just a white item.

I've been playing the starter edition over and over. Thanks Sapper.

Whimseyshire was pretty easy on Normal - but incredibly expensive like nickzz said. Had about 6 rares, but no legendarys.

I'm working on hell right now with a Barbarian. The only way to progress is to buy nice gear off the AH it's just way to hard to get "lucky" with drops. Blizz said that was part of their design otherwise the AH would be flooded with good items and no one would make any gold from it.

I enjoyed the storyline. I played wow for 7 years and Starcraft 2 so I'm used to blizzard games. When I buy a Blizzard game I know a ton of effort has gone into. There is nothing worse then spending $60 bucks on a total flop. Blizz will patch and fix things for years to come.

Blizz basically said they added an extra difficulty. So the old inferno is now called hell. The new Inferno is supposed to be the most insanely difficult gaming experience you can have. The problem is if it's to hard you can't "skill" your way to victory. You have to cheese the game. That means ranged class kiting. It's like those kids that would beat halo on the hardest difficulty by sniping slowly through every level. How much fun is that?

I had the most fun playing through this game on normal mode barbarian. I just rained death. It was fun like that but now I pull a small group and run for my life.

I head one of the dev's saying that when they made the D3 Inferno difficulty, it was based on what the dev team thought was difficult to beat, then multiplied it x 10.

I have found that magic items with "increase chances of finding better magical item" or whatever it is are essential to gameplay. At least for me.

Also, I'm taking an insane amount of time and patience while playing through and just enjoying the small things. I have found it essential to use skills appropriately in order to maximize my characters ability.

Game is a lot of fun and very challenging but Blizzard should really keep some ability combos out of the game. Things like jailer and desecrator on the same mob can suck when there's nothing you can do and just die. Or those damn arcane turrets and an ability like waller or vortex. Playing melee is painful in hell and higher difficulty.

It's hard to find those items that have MF and also the skills you need. I tried doing that but ended up having to get some upgrades from the AH to continue on.

Blizzard made it so you absolutely must use the AH to progress through Hell/Inferno unfortunately....

I'm stuck on Nightmare Izual as a 52 Barb - I would upgrade through the AH but am blowing my gold on pots. Going to re-roll to a caster after I beat NM with my Barb.
