Diablo® III

What has been removed and added?

So I'd like to form some kind of list of what all has been taken away from Diablo 2 and added to Diablo 3.

Removed items/mechanics:
Ammunition
Charms
Gambling
Potions (Mana, Rejuvenation, Stamina, Poison, Fire)
Map Overlay
Scroll of Identify
Skill Points
Skills on items
Necromancer
Amazon
Assassin
Necromancer
Paladin
Druid

Added items/mechanics:
Achievements
Arenas
Auction House
Automated Gold Pickup
Banners
Books
Crafting
Destructible Environments
Follower Skills
Health Globes
Kill/Streak Rewards
Physics
Quest Markers
Random World Events
Siege Weapons
Skill Runes
Monk
Witch Doctor
Demon Hunter


Know I may be mistaken about some of the stuff, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. Anything else I can add to the list?

The purpose behind pretty much everything you've listed is contained in another, better system.

Gambling replaced by crafting.

Skill points replaced by skill slots and their rune variations.

Scroll of identify replaced by an innate ability everyone has.

Not sure how this is "out"


There are quest indicators on the minimap as far as I can tell.

In D2. It wasn't hard at all to find you quest. So i really don't see the point in you complain here...


I don't recall saying I was complaining, just listing what I said I would miss and what wasn't around anymore. Please don't assume stuff then proceed to call me out on it.

In conjunction, We should also talk about what has been added since D2 regardless if it is good or bad.

I guarantee you won't miss any of them nearly as much as you think you will.

That being said, i think you should replace "Searching for your objective" with "Randomized world map". That's the real root cause of what you noticed. It also encompasses a lot of other more specific complaints that don't necessarily need to be listed individually.

In that case, I should add the removed classes as well.

I wouldn't say "replaced". More we lost gambling and gained crafting.

I would, if you wanted to compile a legitimate comparison chart between D2 & D3
