So, I'm generally a whiner and a complainer, but there are two changes that I really feel should be made that I think would just objectively make things more fun. In fact, they were two things that were previously in the mod that I am completely baffled were changed:
Respecs on Command
I really don't understand this. This is a mod that has somewhat limited information, lots of viable builds, and tons of things to try. It fit the mod a lot better to be able to easily respec your character so you could try things. The old recipe was
Oil of Absolution (bought from vendor) + rune → Belladonna Elixir
Sure I could spend hours mindlessly grinding low level mobs until I get this rare drop to be able to make my character playable again after a mishap (hell, sometimes I just click the wrong fucking skill), but why? Is it to facilitate the trade economy? Is it just to add more 'gameplay'? It really was one of my favorite things about the mod, and it had been something I had wanted since playing original Diablo II.
Removal of Required Level for Zones
Again, just totally baffled by this, as previously you were encouraged to do things as low level as possible (Remember all the level challenges?). Possibly this was meant to conform with the increased (or removed not sure which) level cap, but it's really just annoying. Yes, you can go on about how "It's not hard to level bro. git gud", but it just ends up making us farm zones with little to no reward other than xp to level our character. We should be able to farm zones as soon as we have the ability, not as soon as we hit some arbitrary required level. Besides, it was really cool to be able to go try zones you have no business in to see what kind of bullshit you can pull off. I'd love to be able to start farming Kurast 3000 at like level 100 for great XP and good loot, as opposed to having to level in places I have little to no chance of getting anything decent.
I have heard some people say this makes things easier for new players, so that they know where they should be going (doesn't really make sense to me, but okay?) Maybe you could just list a Recommended level on the portal?
I really love this mod, and am really excited that it is still being developed to this day. Another complaint of mine, is no infinite or shared stash, but I've heard this is supposed to be in the works. That would really make me both moist and erect.
Anyway, I guess post your own Complaints and Grievances and general changes you wish to be made here?
I didn't see any other thread or section for this kind of stuff and felt it should be on this forum. I know MarcoNecro is going to do what he wants at the end of the day, and I don't think he owes us anything, but nothing wrong with getting Player feedback on what they would like to see.
