Diablo® III

If you were starting a new character...

knowing what you know now after playing for a year, what would you do differently?

Use a different character? New gear? Spent LESS time doing...? Spent MORE time doing...?

What would you do now to improve your experience?

Never used sharpshooter as a DH; I lost so much good gear from that simple mistake

I made a Witch Doctor for my first play through... and I honestly have to say that I had the worst time I have ever had "designing" a character in any game....ever!

I made a Wizard hoping it would be closer to Diablo 2.... but my interest in this game just slowly dropped and dropped...even with all the "patches"... I just have no drive to play this game what so ever.

Play without buying on the Auction house, gold included (I'd still sell stuff of course).

Probably what ill do with the console version.

How about salvaging more low level items to craft at low levels? Anyone else have an opinion on this?

I definitely salvaged just about everything at low levels to make other equipment. If you didn't mind saving up the materials to make 30 or so of an item, you could significantly progress the gear on your low level characters after a while. That's really only very beneficial if you're playing from scratch though, and I don't know how large a benefit it actually provided since you'd probably be in Inferno somewhere between about 30-90 hours depending on how you play.

To answer your original question though, I know exactly what I would do! I would NEVER listen to a single word uttered by the Monk and Wizard classes. I'm a big completionist and love to get all the lore tomes and hear all the dialogue in games. Unfortunately, the Monk is incredibly boring and the Wizard is just a jerk. Never again! =P

What would you do to have more fun playing the game? Take your time and enjoy the leveling process maybe?

Omg lol! I saw this and was thinking if I should make a response like this, but figured ill keep out of the genuine interested in the game threads. But I saw this and laughed. Anyway have a free bump, I may not get why you like this game but I won't inhibit you from playing.

Female monk has a better looking avatar... easier on the eyes.

I sold all the gear from my alts, and I'm now gearing them with stuff I'm finding with my monk (debating if I should use crafted gear or not). No bought gear for them, but the monk can used AH gear. It's only been a week and I've found some decent items.. I need to level the witch doctor, he has some decent stuff sitting in his stash.

Play without using the AH until I beat inferno on MP0.

The endgame is all about facerolling content quickly.
It's tempting to socket rubies into weapons and complain about how long it takes to get through normal, nightmare, and hell but this isn't remotely fun or rewarding.

Playing from 1-60 can be rewarding when you work your way up to that success through natural progression. I've done this with my Monk and Wizard but not the other classes. I fully plan to solo self-found with all of them down the road but not until the expansion comes out.

I won't waste my time again, I did enough to give the game a chance.
