i'll admit i use a few modded items, but i don't use anything that affects anybody's toon... what needs to happen is to get rid of the fact that xp is shared between toons... if they haven't placed that in the game, then ppl wouldn't be !@#$%ing so much about their paragon going up and up and up and up without them wanting it that way..
Yeah that's what I've been saying get rid of shared experience. Why Blizzard seems to want to just play the see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil on this issue is beyond me.
I too admit I use 2 pieces of modded gear I was gifted but I use it only on solo play.
I don't like group play myself, & with the solo play being setup how it is paragon leveling is at best a snails pace or maybe slower I got tired of getting nowhere on paragons. I shouldn't have to play with others if I don't want to just to get somewhere on paragons. So I've been taking a break from D3.
But I do fully understand the gripes everyone has a right to play their way, but legit players keep getting screwed over.
I also think the quick match group making system may need fixing. It shouldn't be putting vastly unequal paragon levels together. Example paragon level 100 players shouldn't have to worry about it shoving a 10,000 paragon leveler in with them, other players lets say within 50 paragons above or below them should be who they get grouped with. But I don't know if that's something Blizzard can set up or not....or if they even would.
The cheaters shot my paragon level to 4500 something......I don't remember the exact number because I haven't played recently..... kind of made me get turned off from playing the game. I have to many characters I have made that I love to just start all over. So I'm stuck with the boosted paragons but I am going to dust off my diablo 3 game this week sometime & check my characters & stash for any items that are non legit or even are suspicious & get rid of them.
The only items I'll keep is the wings...I love the bone wings on my wizard. Wish blizzard would give everyone all the wings on one of their updates/patches....but that's a whole different topic.
