    Will D3 Technically Be Free to Play?

    Re: Will D3 Technically Be Free to Play? How do you intend to do that? Perhaps I am missing something here, but like D2, the RMAH will be very similar to 'that-other-site'. If you bother to look at the exchange rate, VERY rare D2 items sell for $2-3 dollars. Unless you have an army of...

    Re-rolling characters

    Re: Re-rolling characters Good point. That is something I hadn't considered. Still, I would prefer if there was some cost to changing skills such that there would be an incentive to plan a build and stick with it.

    Re-rolling characters

    Re-rolling characters From what I understand, you only have 6 skills available at any one time, but you can change those out for anything you have unlocked from your list of available skills. Is this a true freespec (change your active skills out at any time)? Or is there some...

    Diablo 3 comic strip - so true

    Re: Diablo 3 comic strip - so true If you ascribe to Blizzard's theory that much of the D2 player-base was trading for 'real' currency via 'that-other-site' then nothing has really changed between D2 and D3 except now Blizzard are supporting and making it more secure.

    Some might be overlooking this aspect of the new skill trees der=0

    Re: Some might be overlooking this aspect of the new skill trees One thing still puzzles me... I understand that we can only use 6 skills at any given time, but do we get to select a new skill every level? If so, that would mean one character could have every skill unlocked and then just...

    Re: down by the sea swallowed by evil Alternatively, Bashiok may be a fan of Beck. "Down by the sea swallowed by evil" is a lyric in a song called 'Chemtrails': http://www.lyricsfreak.com/b/beck/chemtrails_20739068.html

    My RMAH Investment Fund.

    Re: My RMAH Investment Fund. Assuming you are not lying, who was dumb enough to give you any money? Also, I can't figure out how you would have successfully sold shares in your 'fund' with your inexplicably hostile attitude. You speak down to people assuming we do not know what we are...

    Always online? No thanks.

    Re: Always online? No thanks. Well put. I agree 100%. I see the Blizzard-is-greedy-and-evil argument a lot. What do you think the purpose of a corporation is? Here's a hint: maximization of profit for shareholders. If the online requirement is good for the bottom line and marginally...

    My RMAH Investment Fund.

    Re: My RMAH Investment Fund. This is not what your original post discusses. You are attempting to sell shares in a fund with the prospect of providing investors with a return in exchange for cash. Okay, I'll bite. What securities markets are you referring to? By what securities commission...

    My RMAH Investment Fund.

    Re: My RMAH Investment Fund. Your response is very telling. You clearly have no experience with securities or live in a country with no regulation. The short answer is as follows: a security is a VERY broadly defined investment vehicle, the trading of which is highly regulated in the...

    My RMAH Investment Fund.

    Re: My RMAH Investment Fund. Assuming you aren't joking, you need to be very careful with this. I should ask: are you registered to trade in securities? If not and if you happen to be soliciting securities you may run afoul of some very harsh securities laws. You may think you have a...

    Concerning Real Money Transactions

    Re: Concerning Real Money Transactions I'm a lawyer in Canada so I am not an expert on US law, however, I believe that in the US a minor can enter into any legal contract and that contract will be binding on both parties but the minor may choose to 'avoid' the contract. This makes...

    "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? if

    Re: "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? This is not what Jay Wilson said in the interview. He said that all runes dropped from monsters would be 'grey' (ie. not yet identified as indigo, alabaster, etc.). Only upon attuning the rune with a particular skill do you find out what it...

    2011 Diablo III Release "going to be tough" ifra

    Re: 2011 Diablo III Release "going to be tough" This. But this goes both ways. The conference call revealed 2 things for me. First, beta is still on-track for Q3 and therefore release is still tentatively scheduled for 2011. Activision/Blizzard would have disclosed a delay during the...

    "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? if

    Re: "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? There is another way to look at this potential change, look at the alternative: The previous system was inferior because there was no randomization. After launch, it wouldn't take long for many of you to have 1 of each type of level 6 or 7...

    "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? if

    Re: "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? I agree. If we see the degree of randomness discussed by Jay, it will be very difficult to create a pre-determined build. Rune reset via gold sink is one solution. Trade is another: a level 7 unattuned rune would be worth as much, if not...

    "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? if

    Re: "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? Who said there had to be strategy involved? Why can't the high level runes you find dictate your build? Wouldn't that generate a lot of replayability? I'm guessing from the number of posts you have made that you played D2 quite a lot...

    "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? if

    Re: "Unattuned runes" Did you or i misunderstand? I disagree. The unattuned rune system is similar to the way torches dropped in D2. I quite liked the randomness of the type of torch (one for each class) and the randomness of the attributes (3, 20, 20). I thought this was an interesting...
