Diablo® III

Left-handed Wielding

Dear Blizzard,

There has been a huge lack of left-handed heroes in games. While it is purely an aesthetic feature, it is a beautiful little detail that has been overlooked for years that can make players feel a little more personalized to their liking. Even if it meant making mirror-imaged heroes, I feel this minor detail could put a smile on more of your faithful followers.

If it doesn't make it in the game, I'm not going to complain or whine; I trust your judgement and your focus on more important details and nuances. It is simply a little bit of extra polish to what is shaping into a beautiful game, and it would certainly be appreciated by people in their right minds.

Loyally yours,

Giraffasaur

You should play wow. There's plenty of roleplaying servers for players just like you.

I agree Giraff. Being a lefty myself and always growing up playing games with right handed heroes, having this small feature will help bring that little bit of personalization to our characters.

I respectfully decline. I have no interest in playing World of Warcraft. This is a Diablo thread. I'm talking about Diablo.

Even if they just mirrored all the art, I imagine this could take considerable work.

Even the Hero of Time is now a righty. Check out the Wii version of Twilight Princess or the upcoming Skyward Sword.

But I digress. We're talking about Diablo. >.<

Roleplaying? You do realize that left handed people aren't a myth. We are out there.

And we'll fine you...

Who really cares about left handed people? Get back under your rocks where you belong.








And for those of you without a sense of humor (this is a Blizzard forum, I know you're lurking), that was obvious a jest. If they have time, why not, assuming it doesn't make them have to do a ton of new animations.

You want to hold up the release of D3 so your character can be left handed...

Nobody is left or right handed, they just need practice. I'm entirely ambidextrous through sheer practice. (actually didn't take that long.)

Did I ever say I wanted to hold up the game? Of course not. If it takes a long time, then obviously no. As I mentioned in my original post, I was asking if it could be done as a minor change. I'm not asking to change the entire game. I'm asking to add an aesthetic nuance for a little more customization, even if it meant simply mirroring what they've already created (which means they wouldn't have to recreate every single animation for the opposite hand). In other words, I'm voicing my opinion on an idea that could be cool. Isn't that the purpose of forums? To discuss and share ideas?

While that's pretty awesome, that has no relevance pertaining to in-game aesthetics.

Well, you're just being...uh....handist?

Anyway, here's what I do; I go into my Nvidia settings and I invert the image horizontally. That way EVERYONE is left handed.

Makes it kinda hard to read text though.
