So , Diablo IV

the Walking Arsenal if I recall correctly, requires you to have damaged with single handed, dual wielded and double handed weapons for it to be ACTIVE

above your EXPERIENCE flow bar you will see when they are active and thus, gain that bonus
Sounds like a very clunky play style..........so you will hit with the dual wield , then 2 handed sword.......then you hammer of the ancients ?

One thing I hate about D4 is the resource generation. So much emphasis on it. Died so many times because I had to generate resource then attack with main skill. I know it was in D3 too, but it did not feel that bad to play. Maybe it gets better late game ?

So with barb, you can assign which weapon to use on your various skills. For example, your basic generator skill can use the duel-wield, while your resource spending skill uses your two-handed sword.

The idea is then that you are rewarded with buffs by consistently all of your equipped skills. It does sound clunky in theory, but it can make for some fun gameplay.

At the very end of the barb skill tree, there is a passive skill where you deal bonus damage based on the number of weapon types used in the past 8 seconds (can't remember exact duration). You can build this up with all the other legendary aspects to deal lots of damage
 
Those that waited for the price drop, now is the time.

Yeah still salty i paid double this price for a "2023" mmo arpg 🤣
Could even be free at some point via game pass
Worth it if you were holding out for a price drop - basic quality of life additions that were needed at launch are now in the game. Many still mia - Decent seasonal updates and community discussions but overall they still need to do so much more!
No Group/Party finder in 2023? haha
Story and cinematics were the best parts of this game for me, things i generally just skip over to get to the end game

Even though i only went with the Standard Ed, still felt exactly the same after seeing the price drop.

Played S02 quite extensively and tried all classes, and must say the new patches and S02 content does breath some life into it again, but defs still a long way to go to keep people.

Feel the QOL improvements by far outweigh the additional content added, and from the recent campfire dev. chats it appears to come full circle gonna take at least another year.

So the latest Abattoir of Zir is basically GR from D3 and it not even a permanent feature and LVL100 only chars, so that one way of forcing people to play longer i guess :D

Anyways after seeing the POE2 trailer last week, Blizzard better start pulling some magic tricks out a hat fast cause if by next year they not have all their Acts together (pun intended) feel D4 going be a desolate game.

Ah can't wait for POE 2 dude! WASD movement incoming
Big POE player, SA servers such a win. Don't regret a cent I've spent on GGG tabs/mtx
 
Elon is quite a Diablo fan and is actually a better D4 player than most of us ......... was interesting listening to the stream where Rhykker , Rob , Wudijo and Elon discussed Diablo IV seaosn 3 and at one point Elon talked about the future of games and AI

I just picked up Grim Dawn. 90 hours of gameplay so far for R200 on the sale.

Sounds like the D4 paragon boards might be similar to GD devotions?
 
Well at least it's R80 a month now vs R1500 even if no one cares :ROFLMAO:

I'll play it at that price.
Fair enough.
I guess I'm a little salty because I've been a big fan of Diablo and D4 was such a disappointment and I'm not even talking about the gameplay. The story is hot garbage as well and that was my biggest thing. I've read quite a few of the books etc.
Anyway, I guess enjoy the game then xD

I'm in the same boat @D3TTOL!

I absolute loved all the previous Diablo entries (Excluding Diablo Immortal, we don't count that one) - so much so that I bought multiple copies and had collectors editions for each.

I just cannot get over how janky all the D4 animations are, all the heroes have the same attack animation, the movement feels so wrong and stiff, Skill tree is really disappointing and the way items look when they drop on the ground is truly something horrendous.

The CGI animations are gorgeous, but those in-game animations even on highest settings look like Diablo Immortal graphics.

Blizzard really downgraded D4, and even for the R80 Gamepass price I just cant bring myself around to playing it.
 
Look Blizzard is only a shadow of their former selves, a company like the current Bliz will always produce sub par products.

In a similar sense I am concerned about GTA 6 without Dan Houser and Lazlow etc. But we'll just have to wait and see.

Oish. Its like you took the words out of my brain. My favourite class in D2 was necro so I started this D4 run using a necro.

Besides the cinematics I find 0 enjoyment from this "game". I gave it until level 20 but I feel like I'm working a job and not playing a game. Its like those ad riddled mobile grinding games but on PC.

I think I'm going to watch a YouTube video of the storyline and be done with it.

So who's pre-ordering ?

I don't think a lot of people, I'll wait for some proper user reviews. Game needs a lot of work to get the majority to come back.

Kind of like reaper of souls, that was a brilliant expansion
 
So who's pre-ordering ?

I can't believe the ultimate edition is 90 euros.
Almost 200 euros for base and first expansion. Will be hard stretched to let go of my money.

At least we got our first pet today!
 
Must say been having a blast with Season 4 so far and truly a big step in the right direction for the game.
That being said the game defs need alot more QOL improvements as well as additional content to keep players from returning and also sticking with it.

Defs not pre-ordering the expansion at that price, and feel when POE2 lands next year, D4 and expansion for that matter might very well be left abandoned.

Will check reviews and hopefully it also gets a decent pricedrop like we saw with the base game, then I will consider it.

In a sense i feel like i had my moneys worth from the game now, and getting the expansion apart from the story and lore will just be more of the same in a different region, and would maybe rather spend that money on something else.
