Diablo® III

Patch 1.0.8 and Act III...

When 1.0.8 is up, I am never going to play Act III again. If I do, I'll go crazy.

It's Blizz's fault not to have implemented monster density sooner... I miss Act 1 and 2 so much :(

Haha agreed, on hardcore I play Act 2 even though I can handle A3, just because I'm so sick of A3.

When the patch hits live, I'll probably stay on act one for a while, they have the most comfortable mosters, not many annoying abilities ^^ also, It's the act I find best looking.

Why not play to have fun? I run all 3 acts doing key runs... Although the crawlers might be good for xp... there are several good places to farm mobs... VotA in Act II for instance... I dont run just act III because I get bored and burnt out.. I am not in a race.. I will get there when I get there.. I am playing to have fun not to work...

You love acct 2? Are you a masochist?

I'm not leaving act 1 again when 1.0.8 hits.

Act 1 density still isn't enough where KD2 is still a viable farming spot. Weeping Hollow needs to be rebuffed.

Not sure if I'm just misreading you, but the crawlers in act 3 are having their exp nerfed in 1.08 so farming them will no longer be feasible. Just in case you didn't know that.

Agreed. Act 1 is by far my favorite act

I hate Act 2, and with NV stacks following you between acts, I might switch between Act 1 runs, and Act 3-4 runs.

And yeah, doing VoTA right now and it's true it's quite fun, it has been a long time. Act 2 is so dark, and with the desert, it's quite refreshing.

I knew that, but people were saying they only currently farm act III. Was just stating that they dont have to... Most farm act III because of the crawlers and their xp gain... I do fine farming other acts as I dont try to maximize my hourly xp gain. I play to have fun not compete with people who already para 100.. I will get there when I get there and will enjoy myself while doing it..

I farmed 6 keys in act 2 last night... 3 in act 1... and 2 in act 3... it was a blast and was nice changing acts and scenery.. I honestly dont feel any act was worse than the other while doing so.. I had a steady xp gain...

Act 1 has the best random events --- followed by act 2. Act 2, however, has frustrating mobs, so I think I'll keep my distance from it.

Monster density in other acts allows some build to be viable outside of Act 3. Prior 1.08, you couldn't keep Archon very long, except in a few locations. After the patch, you can technically keep it up for the entire Act.

I stopped playing around the beginning of 1.06 and started up again about a week ago. I recently learned from Moldren that the keeps 2 was the best place to farm legends and that the Warriors Rest is the best place for demon essence. I figured farming just the kd2 wouldn't be a huge deal, but I can't stand to farm it more than 1-2 times and that's after being on a break for so many months. I just collect essence because it's more interesting to me, killing the elite and all the trash around him in less than 10 seconds and redoing it again. Plus, it gives me more shots at upgrading my amulet/gloves/shoulders.
