    Blizzcon demo pics from diablo3.cc

    Note: The guys at the Chinese D3 site diablo3.cc seem to have changed their domain name to http://d.163.com/

    Their gallery hosts a mother-load of pics taken from the Blizzcon 2010 demo:

    http://game.163.com/photoview/4KHR0031/20766.html#p=73M25J8I4KHR0031

    I have not viewed all the pics yet but I will link some interesting ones. Enjoy :grin:

    Edit: Those who want the entire set can download them as a .zip file here:

    Re: Blizzcon demo pics from diablo3.cc

    TBH i'm not liking the gold values atm..

    While it satisfies me to see the player only has 746 gold (which would mean gold is alot lot lot lot less abundant as in d2) it dissatisfies me to see that a skill rune is only 1 gold and dye only 5 gold..

    The charm seems adequately priced, but only if you assume a rarer version of this item holds 10-20 to those stats..

    If every monster drops 1-2 gold in normal one would already amass a few K of gold when they finish normal, I don't know if monsters drop gold but this would be the case then.
    There is no telling if higher acts drop more gold for the player, making the amount u end with on normal even higher..

    I'd like to see a gold economy where having 5k gold means u are in the upper level of wealth in the game and where 10k gold is equal to being a millionaire in real life..

    If the eco is balanced like this the result would be that the rarest and best items in the game that are purchasable through some kind of AH system from players would hover around a few K gold..

    Meaning your wealth would have alot of weight in what to buy, meaning you'd have to carefully think through before purchasing something or you'll be stuck with endless hours of farming gold from monsters to buy an entire gear set on the AH..

    Forcing people to aquire a large amount of items via trading (or if they really like the gold farming, item hunting when doing so)

    All gold sinks should remain at relatively low amounts like say a few hundred for the most game changing gold sinks and only a few gold pieces for something like repairing your gear or respeccing

    I've got a whole main page update planned around cropped/improved versions of these pics, since I did look through all of them over the weekend and saved the best of the bunch. But as I'm going out of town tomorrow, I dunno when/if I'll have time to get on the laptop while I'm elsewhere.

    So probably for the best that FM posted this in the forum for those who hadn't seen the link in other posts previously.

    o_O Where have you been? That's the monk.

    Hm, but yeah, that gem is kind of discouraging. Unless they heavily skewed player HP to damage ratios in the direction opposite of Diablo 2, I don't see how they can justify keeping it in the game.

    That would be the female monk (note the claw weapons).

    @tcpgeest: Deducing anything from these gold values would be incredibly silly. But by all means, enjoy wasting your time talking about them ;)

    @FM: Thanks for sharing :)

    Good luck with spending years to create a perfect gem.

    Meh. Just be diligent in your picking up of everything. I am sure there will be tons of gems being sold all over the AH before people figure out the actual worth of mid-level gems in terms of acquiring higher level stuff.

    Those are the sell values, which are generally much lower the purchase value of the item. Assuming it's even available for purchase at all and also doesn't equate to actually value it may sell for between players.

    Re: Blizzcon demo pics from diablo3.cc

    I know it's alot of speculating ofcourse, this could all be random values because they cannot fully test the economy until an estimate of the playerbase is established..

    However I do want d3 to have the same type of value of gold that WOW has...

    Maybe not how it is now.. but how it was in classic where you'd be rich if u had multitudes of 1000..

    Yup, added some of the stuff from those screens to the wiki.
    I'm particularly fond of the item art in the inventory. They did a great job with that. And I also like how they visually represented the rune ranks on the item art.

    Re: Blizzcon demo pics from diablo3.cc

    Why?

    If a legendary item is worth 10 or 1000 or 10,000 gold it doesn't make a difference what the number is. It's arbitrary.

    What matters is that gold has many uses and is indispensable and required to play the game, thus forcing gold as the currency.

    Saying i want 1000 gold to make you rich is idiotic, it's an arbitrary figure pulled out of the air.
