    1.10 is a joke

    First off, im new to the forums, but ive been playing US east exp non ladder for a while. As stated I honestly feel v1.10 is too easy. I solod uber diablo, he was a joke, and solo hell baal runs with my lvl86 “hammerdin†daily. Does anyone feel the way I do, or am I crazy?

    Many feel its too hard. Many feel its too easy. Usually the people that feel its too easy are the ones who have Enigma w/ HoTo and SoJs or something.

    Try playing a character thats not a hammerdin/blizz sorc/cl orb sorc/skellimancer/bonemancer/wind druid etc. It will be harder. Try playing untwinked, it will be harder. Try playing HC, it will be harder. Come back and complain it is too easy after trying an untwinked HC Melee sorc, then I might listen to you.

    Listen to this wise man, LexmarkX73. The game is as hard as you make it.

    you were complaining it wasn't hard enough, try making your own build for HC.

    that will mkae you think and plan out the character...making it harder, which is what you want right.

    Okay, its not hard enough. Try a HC LADDER MELEE SORC. This character will make you use every single one of your brain cells. No it wont, but it requries a helluva lot of strategy. Untwinked too. Tool.

    Thats not as hard as a naked, no-skills, no-vit, no-str, no-eng, no-dex HC untwinked punch-a-sorc. Try that. :surprise:

    th54290325823: Calm down, that tool comment was out of line, hes just looking for suggestions here.

    Maybe an unwinked holy fire pally? lol. Anyways, it is generally the softcore players with good gear that say the game is too easy. And ironically, it is these same people that say "use your brain while" playing". Now tell me, how many of you have seen a softcore barb use taunt/grim ward/ warcry for crowd control? I have yet to see a single barb use those tactics. And also, it is also these same people who say "you need to plan out your characters in 1.10" So what do you mean by planning out your characters? Reading a guide? Then you did absolutely none of your own planning but took someone else's build and copied it. I don't mind it when people say the game is too easy, it just bothers me when they say "use your brain" or "plan your char" when they don't do any of those things. I'm not referring to anyone specific, but most uber softcore players think "using your brain" is whirlwinding back and forth a crowd of monsters, yeah that's using your brain. :uhhuh:

    I'm going to try that build untwinked on ladder, only with frenzy instead, conc does get that nice BO boost and if you felt crazy enough to use stun that gets a bonus from WC

    conc
    BO
    stun
    bash
    WC

    crazy enough??????!?!?!!!1exclamation point

    well, maybe forget the stun bit, if you have any other Qs you can head over to the barb forum

    have you read mongojerry's 'irene the infirm' adventures? he made it through act 1, killing every single monster. no skills, stats, items. only one mercenary and a mean right hook.

    edit: actually i found it.

    Here is a bigger waste of space for you LexmarkX73. Where did you get you forum name from? Were you looking at your printer at the time?

    I feel that once you need to play crippled characters, you should be searching for new games to play.

    It's akin to beating Doom in Nightmare mode with only a pistol. Yes, it can be done, but come on.

    Yes, as others have said, the game is as hard as you make it. :)

    There are tons of builds you can try... Minionless Necro's, Enchantresses, etc.
