    A fan brings up something that I’ve found vexing as well; how hard it is to tell, at a glance, where the town is on the new Diablo 3 Waypoint Map that’s replacing the old Waypoint list in Reaper of Souls and D3 on the PTR.

    Make the base camp (the place where you sell, repair) on the map more conspicuous. Sometimes I need quickly tp there and all points on the map look the same and in different acts the base camp is in different places of the map. It is somewhat confusing.
    I’m glad you pointed this out, because I’ve noticed this several times now. I know that I can just use my teleport hotkey to go back to town, but I don’t always travel that way. I’ll be sure to mention it in my feedback summary, though.

    I agree. The artwork and layout for each Act is very different, so the town isn’t just in the lower left corner, or middle, or someplace identical on each map. And while “T” casts a Town Portal to take you back to the town in your current act, if you want to go to town in another act you’ve got to open the map, click to the world map, select an act, and then find the town icon on that one.

    You do get used to it, but even after two months in the Reaper of Souls beta I still don’t instinctively know where to click and have to stop and look each time. Yes, the new art is attractive and stylish and all that, but sometimes I miss just clicking the top waypoint on the list to head back to town. Perhaps they could add some color around the town artwork to make it stand out more on the monochromatic map?
