    I didn't know there was matchmaking, and quest-specific matchmaking at that. That's great!

    What is this 'SS'-like thing in the Barb video people keep going on about? I missed it.. somehow.

    I don't think it was entirely clear which buff was what. They specifically mentioned a buff from being at maximum rage, which is the Berserker Rage passive skill. There are also Battle Rage and Wrath of the Berserker, which presumably have a visual effect on your character that could have been seen in the video.

    I'm only just now realizing how similar those three names are.

    I got to keep all of my achievements from patch 15. Anyone else?

    The cooldown for skillswap is only 5 seconds? It might as well not be there at all. Unless they're trying to prevent some weird bot technique.

    For Normal only. There really isn't any reason for it to be there at all when you're getting new skills.

    I was hoping for buffs to Discipline costs. Like I said earlier, I felt that I very rarely had to use any Discipline skills, but when I did I just didn't have enough Discipline.

    I think the whole point of Discipline is to be very limited. That's what makes it different from Hatred.

    Oh, I know. But with lowered costs you'll be more inclined to use them when you're in deep shit, as opposed to saving them in case you end up being in really deep shit.

    Yay I love community interactive stuff

    Oh hey Neville would you mind detailing some of the problems/work that has to go into the auction house and how to make it secure, user friendly, and overall something people would want to use?

    I'm interested in some of the things you'd have to do with it (that you can talk about).

    So I'm probably going to replay the old games leading up to the release of Diablo 3. Can someone link to a good, survivable Paladin build for the first time through the game? I'm not really interested in MP or super farming.

    I don't know much about Paladin builds, but I think just about anything can survive Normal. Normal is not super hard.

    Yeah, you can get through normal with just about any build on any class, even if you do /players 8 the whole way through.

    And at least install plugy even if you don't want any other mods.

    Just find an aura you like to dump most of your points into (leave that as your right skill) and a combat skill you like (as long as it isn't Sacrifice) and dump the rest of your points into that to use as your left skill. Obviously you have to put 1 point in all the prereq skills before you get to the ones you want. Also put a point in Charge for fun.

    You can do pretty much whatever, but I'd recommend

    Level 2: Might
    Level 3-11: Sacrifice and 1 point in Zeal prereqs
    Level 12-23: Zeal and 1 point in Holy Shield prereqs
    Level 24: Zeal + Holy Shield
    Level 25-28: Zeal and 1 point in Fanaticism prereqs
    Level 29: save
    Level 30: Fanaticism + Salvation

    From there, max Fanaticism, Zeal, and Sacrifice in that order, then dump points into Holy Shield. Switch to Salvation in sticky spots versus lightning enchanted dudes.

    Enough Strength for gear, and then most of your points in Vitality. Enough Dex for max block (75%) is a good choice, but Holy Shield really buffs your block percentage so you can probably skimp a bit on it.

    EDIT: when you get to Nightmare, you'll want to pick up an Act 2 Offensive mercenary for his Might aura.

    On the gear front, you can craft Ancient's Pledge (Ral+Ort+Tal) in a 3-socket Paladin shield and be pretty good on resists. Look for items with enhanced damage, increased attack speed (IAS), crushing blow, life leech, resists, +STR/DEX/VIT, and +skills in roughly descending order of priority.

    Lore (Ort+Sol) in any 2-socket helm is a good, cheap Nightmare option (+skills and lightning resist).

    Yep it makes a pretty huge difference as someone who doesn't give enough of a crap to scour forums and chat channels for trades. Suddenly everything you get that's valuable to anyone can be turned into something that's valuable to you - that mitigates a ton of the sometimes unfair randomness of the game's loot.

    I am very curious to see how the economy will turn out with the infinite supply of non-binding items though. It must be incredibly difficult to plan out - on one hand, items will theoretically be continuously devalued due to the supply growth, making it easier and easier to get good stuff. On the other hand, when only moderately useful items lose enough value people will start salvaging them instead, thus putting a limit on the supply. Still, when that happens you'll theoretically have very good items sitting stable at just above salvage level which is no doubt pretty cheap. It might make sub-Inferno difficulties pretty trivial after a while.

    I like the skill UI that was available at the start of beta. Why can't they just give us an elective mode option that makes the UI look like that? I don't care if it's not as fancy or pretty, because it was very useable if you know what you're doing.

    It doesn't make sense for Blizzard to maintain two completely separate UIs that do the same thing. Hardcore players can breeze through the interface in an extra second or two, and they'll probably fine-tune their builds in third party sites or something anyway. There are a couple tweaks they could make to improve it but it really isn't that bad.
