Will you guys play? Are you guys excited?
I guess it won't change much for those who played casually in mp 0-5.
But what about those who got some help from ah?
Or ah3 warriors?
You guys somewhat flipped your way up.
I didn't enjoy flipping on the AH... my husband did that more than me. Neither of us likes that playstyle, and we were never going to actually buy the stuff with real money. The only stuff I got on the RMAH, I got with proceeds I sold on the RMAH (all b.net balance) before gold selling was a thing.
Truth be told, I made enough on the RMAH to cover the cost of the expansion for both my husband and me, and have some left over. I never converted that balance to paypal or added to it with real money. I also didn't want to buy any godly gear with b.net balance. It just doesn't feel like a "game" then.
How will you find time to play to improve your build? Or find the proper item to make your build work?
Back when D3 first dropped I was pregnant with our son, who is now almost 17 months old. I will be around 6 months pregnant when RoS comes out, so I guess I'll have only a little while to play before I get super busy again. Newborns are a handful... understatement. :P
If the game is fun, then I'll have fun with it. If it's not, then I won't play for long. I imagine the first while where lots of drops could become upgrades, mystic rerolling, etc. will be a lot of fun for us. We'll see how the social scene shakes up with the clan system, too. It's been cool lately to meet new people doing MP10 crypt runs.
I never play video games to be the uber top most. They are a fun diversion, something to pass the time, and when I get bored, I move onto another game. Maybe Elder Scrolls Online, maybe WoW's expansion, maybe Rift again, etc.
