Diablo 3 Podcast #197: Season Five, Weekend #1

The first weekend of Season Five is in the books and how did the rushing and patch 2.4 changes play out? Is a party no longer required for fast leveling? Are Set Dungeons just lame? Featuring Wolfpaq, Aahz, and Flux.

Diablo 3 Podcast #197: Season Five, Weekend #1

  • 1:00 — Season Five rush stories. Single Player vs. Party isn’t that different, thanks to new massacre bonuses in SP?
  • 7:30 — Demon Hunters much buffed in v2.4?
  • 11:00 — Seasonal Journey item set reward makes a big difference in fast gearing past 70. Power Creep blows up in the end game.
  • 17:00 — Crazy different play style with the new Demon Hunter Shadow Power set.
  • 22:00 — New Stash Tab from Season Journey is too high a requirement?
  • 36:00 — Set Dungeons. Too easy/trivial? We were hoping for more challenge/expertise required to complete them.
  • 45:20 — Overwatch Wings of Merchy appearance bonus. Annoyed that it’s free to Console players?
  • 48:00 — Ongoing plans for Season Five. P1000 or bust? GR70? Power Creep creating higher expectations.
  • 51:00 — If Dave Brevik returned to Blizzard, would that make a real difference for Diablo 4? And do you expect D3X2 or they’ll just go to D4 and a new game engine, with the long outdated D3 engine struggling to function.

    1. Flux, Czechoslovakia hasn’t existed since 1993. It’s not exactly “current” political stuff. 🙂

      That aside, I’ve been playing exclusively solo. I’m still only level 61. In my defense, I’ve been distracted by other Blizzard games such as WoW, HotS and Heartstone.

    2. I guarantee you that next season’s stash tab won’t have anywhere near these requirements. It’s D3 vanilla all over again; grind for 100 hours to get minimal rewards. Blizzard makes very strange decisions sometimes, but they usually correct them.

      Though I honestly wonder if there are technical reasons behind this. That would be funny.

    3. i think a lot of people are rather pissed off at the set trials. many of the set trials are near impossible to clear solo and many “cheated” by getting friends to do it with them since the team mates are not effected by the trial’s rules.

      what is worst(?) is that the extra stash tab is linked to clearing the set trials so quite a few people have stopped playing the game until the devs fix it. (if ever).

      personally, my progression is kind of stifled because i cannot clear the DH Unhallowed trials but i think i will work on the other benchmarks (conquests) in hope that the devs might fix all the trials in a mid season patch.
