    D3 Wii would actually work well. Better than a PS3 version. You'd use the Nunchuk analog to move/face your character, and the WiiMote to aim abilities.

    I don't see how you handle ground targeted abilities without a pointing mechanism, it'd be really clunky to target it with an analog stick manually.

    After taking all 5 classes through HC, I think I'm done with the beta. The content is just too stale for me and the only time I had to worry about dying was the fight with Leoric. Only 44 days to go...



    Edit: Apparently I've been playing a ton of Dr. Daisy Pet Vet lately! LOL

    If you're done feel free to PM me your name and password and I will be glad to continue enjoying the beta for you (I promise I won't change/steal anything...someone on the forum actually let me use their SC2 beta the same way back when).

    edit for obligatory :D

    Now? "FUCK FUCK FUCK I WANT TO PLAY THAT GAME NOW."

    Seriously, work on your grammar before you make a fake Blizzard press release. I don't know who made that mess, but the writing was pretty bad. I counted at least half a dozen fragments.

    I've now played through the beta on all the classes through skeleton king. Only class that felt really weak was wizard. Strongest felt barbarian and demon hunter, with the demon hunter a bit safer to play and higher burst vs single target. Monk was ok. witch doctor had the most "fun" abilities, even though not all that strong. I wish the left side window didn't open for the lore finds, just play the sound. Will definitely have to play through the story on single player first, groups skip every cinematic and talking.

    Yeah I feel the same way. I seriously need to make sure I have a computer built/bought that can play it by release date.

    I always enjoyed the DH, more than most others it seems. After seeing that video, my first character will definitely be a DH.

    After having it pointed out to me in the WoW chat thread that last month was not April and D3 was not out in two weeks, I hopped into the beta to see how awesome all of this was for myself. Having been keeping myself in the dark about it, I knew very little about what to expect.

    I've played a witch doctor and barbarian through to completion, and I've just started a wizard (playing classes in least-to-most interested). Witch doctor surprised me in how much fun it was to play; I'm usually not fond of pet classes, but I really liked the Diablo-y flavor of this one. Barbarian was fun smashing rag doll zombie corpses across the screen, but getting into the thick of the action meant I had to use the health pots more frequently. The wizard so far has been kind of boring, but I've only unlocked a couple skills yet. Looking forward to giving the monk and hunter a go.

    There have been 3 times. Back in October when they announced the CE, early in the year for a short period, and right after they announced the release date.

    Is the hatred / discipline thing they mention in this video actual technical jargon for the class, or are they just being goofy about health and mana?

    I would assume so. I don't have a listing for D3 beta on my Battle.net account.

    Yeah it means you're in the beta. Download the client from the link and play.

    As far as when it'll end, who knows. Probably shortly before launch; but honestly there's not much to do. You can play through the whole thing with one character in a few hours, if you're worried about not having time to invest.

    Also to _J_ Discipline/Hate are the resources for Demon Hunter.

    Thanks guys. Too bad that for some reason I get horrible performance. The majority of the time the game runs at 100+ fps, but very often it slows down horribly for a second or so. Anybody got any idea what that is about? My hardware is an i7 860, 4 GB and a HD5770, on Win7 64 bit.

    I didn't really like Discipline. I very rarely used anything that needed Discipline, and when I did I didn't have enough of it and it didn't regenerate fast enough.

    But beta is beta.

    There is something in the video options you have to disable/enable. I think it's something about limit fps or something like that.

    I was experiencing something similar that seemed to be related to the launcher, which would actually start the game twice. Changing the shortcut to skip the launcher and point to the executable instead got rid of the slowness.

    So, seeing that somebody else got into the beta, I, as is my custom, went yet again to check if I got in. But battle.net won't even let me log in, the log in box is just a black rectangle.

    This means I'm gonna get in, right?

    I set the max fps to 60 and that smoothed out some gameplay issues for me on my older AMD CPU. It sounds like you're doing the opposite. More fps is not always better. If the game is spending all its cycles trying to update the visuals and physics, then there is little time left for network communications and gameplay mechanics.

    The game does lag a bit when first starting because it is loading resources on the fly. Typically I get some stutters for the first 30 seconds or so then it smooths out.

    Only once have I experience network/server lag during the entire beta. It was last night right when my HC Barb started the SK event. I thought I was going to have my first HC death for sure, but the lag went away rather quickly.

    (OK, I lied about not wanting to play any more. Can someone give me the phone number of a local support group?)

    I do the same. It's silly, if you try to log in it just sits, but if you click to create a new account it actually goes to a 'we're doing stuff' page and links to their twitter for info...which doesn't have any.

    Yes, I will PM you my phone numer so you can give me your bnet info. Then I will play and you won't be able to log in.

    Its due to the debugger in the beta client, it loads assets twice which tends to slow shit down a lot. Blizzard says the issue doesn't occur in the internal client.

    If you're having trouble logging into battle.net for your account stuff, I recommend trying eu.battle.net

    I haven't been able to use us.battle.net since they started inviting a few hundred thousand people into the MoP beta but the EU site works fine and you can still access your entire account.

    Well, the thing is, whenever I get to a boss fight where the boss and multiple adds spawn at once, sometimes the game semi-freezes for 10 or 20 seconds, and I have to mash buttons blindly so I don't die. That sounds like a more fundamental problem to me than badly tuned performance.

    Did you completely download the game, or did you hit play when the download got to the yellow section?

    If the former, then I'm not sure, but if the latter then you need to finish downloading the game completely before you try to play it. That's what fixed it for me, your game is constantly loading new assets which is killing your fps.
