and one of the rare DH's past Belial before MPs. But that type of thing lost it's "meaning" very quickly to me and probably everyone else.
I feel you there. Back then it actually meant something. The game was hard, it was an accomplishment. Then they nerf/nerf/nerfed. Now I just hit 60 on a Wiz and I can just go to the AH and easily buy gear to beat infernal. If I'm willing to spend a bit I can buy gear I couldn't get at any price when I was leveling my WD. Now there are 7 Zuni rings with CC in the AH. Back in Nov there often weren't any.
I guess thats part of why I'm motivated to pursue that 100 paragon. There are no shortcuts. I can't just trade for it.
Man I remember when there was only THREE Windforces on the AH, practically no Nat's Reflections, no Calamities, poor rolled Nat's Embrace was worth more because there weren't many, etc.
The economy is being over saturated that truly hunting items, why would I, when the items will eventually come to me anyway. I prefer to just craft now basically. Seeing how quickly the economy over saturates, I had quickly stopped considering that as a reason for playing.
Even with paragon more exp was added, so it's faster for players to progress in that, too. But you're definitely right, there's no shortcuts, you have
to be dedicated there's no question about that.
There's basically two major reasons why I don't push paragon:
1. Paragon doesn't add anything for me. If there were more runes and passives, you damn well better believe I'd be pushing paragon.
2. Lag outs. Due to instantly being stripped without my control, and combining with reason number 1, I have no incentive put a ruby in my helmet nor wear a hellfire ring(and I had had two gfg ones on, too).
Ubers bore the piss out of me:
1. The enrage timer
2. Besides Kulle and Ghom, they couldn't have picked more wack bosses(relatively). Would love to go up against the Butcher or Belial, two of the best designed bosses in the whole game, imo.
