Paragon level 1 gives you a point to spend in "Core Stat," Paragon level 2 gives you a point to in "Offensive," Paragon level 3 gives you a point to spend in "Defensive," and Paragon level 4 gives you a point to spend in "Utility" (or "Adventure"). Each Paragon level past that follows the same pattern.
I feel like this sounds awful.
Customization to me would mean if I have 100 paragon points I don't want them to be 25 offense, 25 defense, 25 core, 25 adventure. I want 100 points to spend how I want.
Also, with the current paragon system, (if I remember correctly) you get 300 main stat, 200 vit, 100 of each of the other 2 stats for a total of 700 core stats when you hit paragon 100. With the new paragon system, 1 paragon point= 5 of a core stat, 100 paragon levels is only going to be 500 of core stats. Why is that? (and this seems even worse with the predetermined categories points will go into).
Agreed. They say they are giving us customization but it seems like everyones characters are going to be progressing the same since we have to spend the points in certain branches. I don t understand why blizzard is trying so hard to stay away from giving us complete control on how we build our characters. Cross account paragon levels for gold and magic find is a great idea..... every other stat or paragon point shd have to be earned by the specific character and be able to be allocated to whatever area you choose when you earn it. Allowing my fresh wizard at 60 the access to 100 paragon points is kind of ridiculous and takes away from the progression aspect of the game. So I reiterate, I think gold and MF cross account for all characters is great,.. allows you to play different characters without worrying about losing out on loot.... making individual character paragon points cross all characters is NOT a good idea.
