First post is not an intelligent post at all.
Diablo is ALL ABOUT GEAR CHECK.
Did you guys just get world of warcraft and then head over to Diablo and then !@#$% when something isn't going your way?
Did you guys not play vanilla diablo 2 during release? Gems were extremely important. And no one has the top tier gems yet.
Did you guys not participate in ladder builds for D2 LoD? There was like two builds. One for sorc and one for paladin.
Barbs are the funniest. You know what a barb did in Diablo 2? They shouted and buffed their party and then they just stood there and watched.
WoW kiddies who claim they aren't WoW kiddies ^-*!@ing about a game genre they clearly don't have an experience dealing with.
WITH THAT BEING SAID
Diablo 3 definitely took a step back from Diablo 2 in terms of loot. Only explanation is they're saving LoD style loot for the expansion.
You people are complete idiots, WoW is all about your gear too. Go try to beat Heroic Spine of Deathwing with gear from freshly hitting 85.
