Vote: Your Highest Level Diablo 3 Character?

With all the discussion and acrimony over just how many players have raised their Diablo III characters into DiabloWikiInferno it’s a natural question… what’s your highest level character? Blizzard’s instantly-infamous declaration that 1.9% of accounts have a character in Inferno has been much analyzed, but 1) that figure was as of last Friday, when they finalized that document and sent it out to be localized for the Monday morning world wide reveal, and 2) the readers of this site are much more hardcore and dedicated than the average Diablo 3 contestant.

So, what’s your highest level character? Are you part of the 1.90%? And is that more like 19.0% by now, especially when asking hardcore (but not DiabloWikiHardcore) fans like you guys?

Last Vote Results

The last main page vote went up last Monday, and asked you guys to rate your first week of Diablo III. We started that vote when a lot of the early hate and bitterness was flowing via Metacritic user reviews and such, so it was eye-opening to see what a high % of you guys liked or loved your first week of the game. Even after the rocky™ launch.

I guess you’re all fanboys who love anything Blizzard does… right?

How enjoyable was your first week of Diablo III?

  • 1) Awesome. It exceeded my expectations. (50%, 4,855 Votes)

    Lately I’ve been sticking quick votes into various news items, without featuring them on the main site nav bar, and this is a good place to recap those results.

    A post about account hacking on the 26th included two polls to measure how many have been “hacked” and to see what you guys think should be done about it.

    Has your Diablo III account been “hacked?”

  • 2) Nope, no problems. (88%, 3,456 Votes)
  • 3) Not mine, but a friend was hacked. (7%, 283 Votes)
  • 1) Yes and I was robbed (5%, 192 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 3,931

    Who is to blame for the D3 account “hacking?”

  • 1) Users without adequate security measures. (72%, 2,284 Votes)
  • 4) Blizzard for online-only DRM forcing us to play on (15%, 472 Votes)
  • 2) is getting hacked directly. (7%, 217 Votes)
  • 3) Blizzard should have required more user security. Mandatory authenticators? (6%, 178 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 3,151

    A post on the 27th measured how you guys have been using the Gold Auction House. Quite a bit, as it turns out.

    Have you used the Gold Auction House so far?

  • 1) Yes, I’m constantly buying and selling. (53%, 2,448 Votes)
  • 2) Yes, but just a little bit. (30%, 1,357 Votes)
  • 4) No and I wish there was no GAH or RMAH in D3. (10%, 457 Votes)
  • 3) Not yet, but I plan to. (7%, 322 Votes)

    Just yesterday (And it’s already thirteen posts down and off the main page. Don’t you feel sorry for those noobs on who don’t read this site and are so out of the loop?) we got a reminder of the Blizzard North version of Diablo III and that spurred a comparison of those leaked 2005 screenshots vs. the similar areas seen in Diablo III.

    Which version of the High Heavens do you prefer?

  • 2) The current Diablo III version. (32%, 677 Votes)
  • 4) Impossible to judge old unfinished screenshots vs. new playable levels. (30%, 638 Votes)
  • 1) The original Blizzard North version. (22%, 473 Votes)
  • 3) Both are awesome. (13%, 278 Votes)
  • 5) Haven’t seen yet in D3 spoiler SPOILER SPOILER!!1! (3%, 54 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 2,120

    We will not often have 5 votes in a week; it just worked out that way this time, with so many opinion survey appropriate subjects in the news.

    1. My option isn’t there lol : just hit lvl 60 and I’m in Act 3 Hell

    2. Looking at the current poll results it seems we have some pretty “hardcore” players that visit this site.

    3. I think people are really misinterpreting the “1.9%” stat.  The exact quote is “1.9% of characters have unlocked Inferno difficulty”.  I take that to mean that all of the alts and mules are diluting that percentage way down.  The more relevant stat, IMO, would be what % of accounts have a character with Inferno unlocked, which is exactly what Flux said was 1.9%, but I don’t believe has actually been revealed…

      • ya i don’t understand why they didn’t just do the percentage of people with the beat diablo on hell mode achievement.  Would have been a HELL of a lot more informative with zero confusion.  And it should have been a very easy SQL statement against their database.   In fact, we should be able to see these percentages on a page on the web site.  Just like steam shows its percentages of all players that have certain achievements for games. 

      • Blizzard stats are always off because they look at everything, rather than just active characters. Know how many mules people have created, thus saving gold from upgrading the stash. That is why there are so many low level characters. Blizzards numbers are always off, they don’t do logical metrics. 

      • People really read into a single number, and that’s just silly. This Bashiok post flew under the radar:

        “If you’re unable to read “characters” and understand that does not mean players, I can’t help you. Honestly we couldn’t get the ‘players’ stat before the article needed to be locked down for translation, so we went with characters as it was an easier stat to pull.”
        Some folks rage, and I see they released some post-release fun facts. That’s great considering I didn’t expect them to reveal anything like that!

    4. I’d love to see a poll of what people think of the game now that the “new and shininess” is wearing off.

    5. BTW it’s not 1.9% of accounts are in Inferno.  It’s 1.9% of characters are in Inferno.  At their stated avg 3 characters per account, that’s 5.7% of accounts.

      • Well, the % of accounts isn’t reliably derived from the other stats. The rest of the  post checks out though.

        Flux… I thought you read some of the posts on this site, several of the quoted blue-posts referd to exactly this mixup (characters vs accounts). 

    6. I guess its a very small minority, but I’m sure there are plenty of HC 60s who haven’t touched Inferno yet.

    7. Where’s the option for HC lvl 60 in hell? 🙁

    8. Totally irrelevant poll as it’s not a Hardcore poll.
      Anyone in SC can bash their head against the wall enough times before it finally breaks.

      • Yes, but that doesn’t mean people choose to. Nor that that “finally” come in the first 15 days…

    9. Time-wise I could be in inferno, but I got bored with becoming pigeonholed in hell mode with my character and started a new one.  I doubt I’ll be moving him forward until my other characters have caught up or the balance changes make it fun to play him again.

      Interesting to see how many dedicated players visit this site though. 

    10. There would’ve been more voters that have beaten Inferno, but they’re just busy playing 😆

    11. To me it seems like the users of the site are all very devoted to the game, but some, who are playing the “enjoy every corner” style find it hard to believe some people have 2 characters in Inferno without using loophole xp grind tactics. Personally I played about 70 hours in the first 6 days and the had to do some IRL work abroad, so just got back to play regularly. By now, aroumd 130 hours of D3 behind I have a 60 monk fairly well geared for Inferno and a lvl 55 wiz, which I could’ve pulled to Inf if I wanted, but liked monk more. Not saying, that it is a feat, but ppl play differently. For me, the game is always about surpassing oneself, I even clock my goldruns…. seriously I worry sometimes. :mrgreen:

    12. Not very far yet – just not enough free time for gaming.
      Why was this statistic ‘instantly infamous’?  Who cares how many people are in Inferno yet?  Lots of people bought the game, played a bit, and then real life called.  They have other things they need to spend time on?  Shrugs…

      • Check some of the news from yesterday, with numerous long angry blue threads full of people disputing the figure. The results of this vote might shed light on that, with the three “I’m in Inferno” options adding up to 50% of votes.  It’s been a few days since Blizzard pulled that 1.9% figure, but obviously the people reading/voting on this site are much further into the game than the average general public.

    13. 52 Wizard – Act 2 Hell

    14. Monk lvl60, wizard lvl60 both in inferno. Lvl45 WD, 28 or so DH, 25 Barb.

    15. I’m level 60 in act 4 Hell…

    16. Level 54 Monk. Haven’t had much time to play unfortunately.

    17. 53 WD, in hell, is my highest. I’m a dilettante 🙂

    18. Level 58 on hardcore, level 52 on softcore. Still stuck in hell.

    19. Got three characters in Act I Nightmare now, one in Act II Normal and one in Act III Normal. Gonna do all characters one difficulty at a time, so it’ll be ages before I’m part of the ‘1.9%’

    20. Barbarian lvl 60, beginning of act 2 inferno and a wizard lvl 60 at belial inferno. And just started on hardcore so got a lvl 32 wizard there + some other low lvl chars lvl 1-15, got over 200 hours played all ready. How did I do that you ask? I’m unemployed atm. and no GF. What a great time to be in that situation, hehe 😛

      Also even though I know alot of people have had trouble with the game, everything have been running smooth for me, only problem was the first 2 hours after server went up I couldnt log on, after that the servers going down just meant I finaly got some sleep 🙂

      Awesome game, cant remember the last time I have been gaming like this, must have been 10-15 years ago in D2.

    21. 60 Monk – beaten Inferno.

    22. Never trust statistics 😉

      How can 416 votes outrun 423 votes in percentage?

      4) Not good, for various reasons. (4%, 423 Votes)
      5) Terrible. Gravely disappointed. (6%, 416 Votes)


    23. I don’t think there is any debate but I was one of the first to reach level 60. I hate how when you reach level 60 you can’t get better, which defeats the whole purpose of the game. In Diablo 2 you actually had to try to reach level 60. This game isn’t nearly as hard which is why it’s a flop.

    24. Where’s the hardcore version of this?
