Jay Wilson Talks about Inferno and More


Diablo 3 Game Director Jay Wilson has kept up yesterday’s Twitter activity with a bunch more tweets today talking about interesting game details. Here are the tweets, with a couple repeated from last night since they started the conversation.

Just finished an epic 4 player co-op Inferno difficulty play session. Died a lot. Very fun! 🙂 –JayWilson

from start to finish? –StanGe205
oh hell no. Act 1 only, and not even all of it. –JayWilson

What classes did you play/play with? –xAndrewGilesx
Wizard, Wizard, Witch Doctor, Monk. I was one of the Wizards. –JayWilson

any reason for the wizard choice? Favorite class per chance? –HCXAnth
Melee classes tend to be my favorites, but I wanted good CC options for this session. –JayWilson
I tend to play the classes with the gender we announced them with, so female. –JayWilson

Hi Jay, can you name one extremely deadly monster attribute combination on an Inferno rare mob or champion pack? Thanks! –diabloiii_de
fought a vortex/Waller/illusionist/molten combo today that kicked a lot of ass. –JayWilson

Did any awesome lootz drop? 😀 –ericbachour
Wyatt got a pretty ridiculous hammer. 🙂 –JayWilson

More! I’m so damn intrigued by that monster affix combo you posted…is 4 a standard for inferno? –@BHarrisII
yes. The number of affixes on rares and champs steadily increases at higher levels. –JayWilson

Sounds like they were deep into that “deep and engrossing” combat that we’ve been promised we’ll see after the Beta content. Bonus points to our writers Xanth and Azzure for spurring Jay on with some of the tweets quoted in this series.

  1. Video or it didn’t happen.

  2. Wyatt has Schaefer’s Hammer ?! >:D

  3. Twit the damn release date!

  4. He’s just f*cking teasing at this point.

  5. Freakin’ ball buster! Gib rilis dayte!

  6. Why play Diablo 3 if you can read JW talk about it! So much fun!!! In fact! Dont release the game, just write a book about how awesome and fun it is to play!! So much better!!

  7. Release date talks; stories about walk…

  8. Given up on release date? anychance of a new wallpaper to keep us quiet -.- 😯

  9. No wonder they are taking so long to release the damn game when they are playing half the time.

    • I take this as a sign that they are now being held up by distribution/marketing.

      • Or network infrastructure. They just recently started getting the servers ready for EU/Korea. Most developers/designers are useless when it comes to that stuff. Though its not like they don’t have other things they could be working on for after release patch…

  10. Ah god, the teasing! It’s inhumane and torturing!

  11. Forget that, what does he think about the Mass Effect 3 ending?

    • Aw man, I came here for news about D3 to escape all that.  Thank you sir for depressing me! 😉 

      PS- I would totally play some punishing D3 inferno mode after the ME3 ending to clense myself. 🙂   

      • Forget about SP. ME3’s MP is awesome…unless it’s Reapers on Gold, which is similarly depressing. Ravagers, Banshees, and Brutes are so cheating :/

  12. Blizz is trying to craft the release date but ran out of mats and has to go back to grind a couple hundred more.

  13. Guys… Stop teasing us .
    It’s a fuckin torture.
    Release the game !!!!!!

  14. Jay: “Inferno is super awesome guys. You should try it. Oh wait, you can’t! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHA”

  15. I wish there would be more polishing and cleaning up the game than they are playing. Please Blizzard get this game out to the public. I know you have to play sections of the game to make sure everything works well but don’t need to play through the entire game. wait until release. I know there will be lots of patches when the game does release. This will probably not get to Blizzard but who ever does read this from Blizzard please get this game out there to the public.

  16. I would slap Jay in the face right now if I saw him walking down the street.

  17. full game is already released, you just have lag passed all the locked gates.

  18. I didn´t think Jay would be the kind who favours aggresive gameplay with melee classes(like me). I thought he would be a wussard kinda guy, so that´s definitely +1 in my book.

  19. Here’s what concerns me:  Doing runs and dying on a crazy boss was indeed very fun in D2.  However, if the penalty for death in D3 is loss of durability, and that costs lots of gold (they’ve said it was the thing they wanted most in inferno), then will it become too much of an actual financial penalty to enjoy?
    I’d really like to see this discussed, as it will have massive repercussions on the feeling of the end-game.  I do believe in a meaningful death penalty.  But real money isn’t an acceptable option…  Will we get enough loot to trade for gold for repairs???
     

    • *puts on tin foil hat* 

      Inferno leads to lots of deaths.

      Lots of deaths leads to loss of gold.

      Loss of gold leads to buying gold on RMAH.

      RMAH leads to keeping the Blizzard coffers full. 

  20. Gee Jay, tell us another story of how great inferno is.  😐
