The Diablo 3 Podcast #175: D3’s 3rd Anniversary + Plus Secret Cows 3:30 — Secret Cow Level anniversary surprise. Third Anniversary event. Bored with it already? MooooooOOOOOO! 8:00 — Power Creep and super movement speed this season has turned T6 into a joke. GR40 is the new GR30. Too easy/fast affecting your play? 13:00 — Dream of the game tracking your best time on all GRs, not just your highest. 17:00 — Time for build/spec switching? So you didn’t have to change all your gear/skills around manually. Or make a 2nd character in all your classes. 25:00 — The crazy disparity between super fast movement farming characters and how fast can move normal players without speed optimizations. 29:00 — Much higher Torments needed? T15? What value comes from keeping T6 as the max? More casual players get a psychological boost from being able to handle the highest difficulty? 32:00 — Infernal Machine. Fixes needed? Or is the super speed/powercreep reducing the boredom and annoyance of key farming? 41:00 — Why Reaper of Souls’ big improvements makes “WILSONED” jokes funny. 45:00 — Third Year Anniversary of Diablo 3. Poetic thoughts? Thanks for Enchanting, Blizzard. 57:00 — Gamescom 2015 will bring the Diablo 3 Expansion #2 reveal? Opinions differ. Why isn’t Blizzard monetizing all the RoS patch features? 1:08:00 — Final thoughts and MJNSpace defends his woeful S3 paragon level. Props to Bliz for salvaging Diablo 3 into an awesome product.
