    The newest installment of the Diablo 3 Podcast is now online, a day early for an exclusive preview for our Site Pals'. The podcast will go live for everyone early Thursday morning, but Pals can view it now via this thread in our Pals' Forum. Support the site and earn perks by becoming a Site Pal.



    Tyr describes his awesome first Blizzcon experience, plus Patch 2.4 discussion, D3X2 renewed hopes, Set Dungeons debate, D3's tech issues lead to Devs dodging questions, Legacy of Nightmares loses sleep, and more. Featuring Tyr, MJinSpace, and Flux.

    • 0:30 -- Tyr describes his first trip to Blizzcon and the great excite of meeting D3 devs over brews in the Slaughtered Calf Inn.
    • 9:00 -- Set Dungeons in the words of their designer, plus player feedback. Debate over no perma-HC death in them. Should Greater Rifts get a similar death penalty difficulty upgrade?
    • 22:00 -- Tyr's other Blizzcon activities. Overwatch will be the next huge thing? Earning the Blizz Store gold pin and merch self-loathing.
    • 37:00 -- Quin's interview with Wyatt Cheng and dodged questions... for technical reasons? D3's antiquated engine can not keep up with the current super-busy state of the game.
    • 46:00 -- Infinite free content in D3 patches instead of a 2nd expansion? Mike Morhaime's plan to win back skeptical fans.
    • 53:00 -- What would be the point in an expansion instead of just patches? Major game changes. Tyr expects to (eventually) see another full expansion, based on his Blizzcon dev conversations.
    • 1:01:00 -- Legendary Gem augmentation, for all your excess rank 50+ gems. Too much of a "rich get richer" feature raising the baseline so much higher than most players can reach?
    • 1:05:05 -- Item Set improvements in Patch 2.4. Tanky Demon Hunters coming soon?
    • 1:08:00 -- Everyone loves the new wilderness island tile set.
    • 1:10:00 -- Legacy of Nightmares deep dives debate...
    • 1:24:30 -- The guests get to opinion on the added stash space... is the real issue technical issues and botting?

    How is the lack of expansion winning the poll? We are getting so much free content beyond what would be in an expansion, which may very well still come.

    My guess is they will develop a new engine to overhaul graphics and deal with lag from just plain too much going on and that will be the expansion.

    an expansion would be a new character class and a new Act --- an Act which actually relates to and extends the normal play through of the game -- so not a bounty area or rift or whatever, but like the Baal Act of D2

    Flux, Rushster — please, tune your new inbox. I might send this (and many more examples of hiring for Classic Games) week ago.
