Diablo® III

35 Small Improvements for Diablo 3

Not bad.

#9 --- exists, but is hidden under sound options for some insane reason.
#20 --- it should use the best potion you have that does not overheal you. If you are finding 2500 heal potions and only have 1800 life, for example, it should not use those unless it is all you have, and use a lower potion. If you are hit for 1000 it should not waste a 5000 heal potion if you have a 1000 in stock. Etc.

#26 agreed: the easy fix is to have a second recipe that uses up the higher level item to do the job. I personally would not like to see lowbie items drop at higher levels as a fix --- would inferno still drop the normal level pages too???

#32: the only one I do not agree with, I feel that invincible or shield guys are part of the challenge and equalize the difficult between ranged and melee classes. I say this as a ranged class only player.

Solid suggestions.
#827 - As a player, I'd like to able to toggle the aggressiveness of my companions. Some possibilities could be:

Aggressive -- companion actively pursues and initiates new battles
Balanced -- companion does not initiate new battles, will not pursue runners and will attack monsters only within XX feet of the player
Defensive -- companion will only attack the target the player is targeting. Alternatively, companion will attack the monster closest to the player (...and not the friggin treasure goblins)

Eh I think there's some design discussion and implications there. I mostly wanted this list to stay away from design implications and stick to stuff that's probably not controversial and just general polish. Having to right click to go to your next potion is just awkward and probably not the optimal experience.

As a demon hunter I would like to be able to dismiss my companion (not follower) without committing suicide and/or changing the skill.

As a auction house user, I would like that gems are not calculated into the stat totals of items when browsing.

Wow, the only one I don't agree with is #24. It would be too much work and is totally unnecessary.

Also, #12, I find that it doesn't matter. I'm only in Nightmare, but I broke down a magical item and got a yellow eye of some sort. Well, it said right there that this item can be gotten by salvaging RARE items. Well every eye I've gotten has been from magical (blue) items, so I don't think it matters.
Shame this is getting buried so quickly. so many good suggestions.
