Diablo® III

Question about the topic about the tweet for Lylirra

This is what was in the other thread which was locked by Lylirra.

I didn't miss the point, but thanks! I was just clarifying the question Josh was attempting to respond to (and the meaning behind the response itself) since his tweet was being shared out of context.

WHEN DO WE GET THE FIX THAT WE NEED, NOW THAT CONSOLE HAD SOME OF THEM. THEY EVEN HAVE SHARED PARAGON ALREADY, WHY NOT PATCH THAT IN OUR GAME NOW.

TL;DR: Because Loot 2.0 (which is made up of up a variety of different features and changes) is still in development.

Something to keep in mind is that, not only does Loot 2.0 encompass a larger number of changes than those made for the console version, but it's also intended to complement other system updates that will likely have an affect on the item game, things like skill re-balancing, Paragon 2.0, and the addition of features like Loot Runs and Nephalem Trials (which are still in development, too). While we could implement some things here and there in a very piecemeal fashion, in the end it makes more sense--to us, at least (we understand if you might disagree)--that all the components of Loot 2.0 ship together, since they're so closely connected and are ultimately intended to support and build off one another. This does mean more of a wait, which we know isn't the perfect scenario for a lot of players, but it also means that, when Loot 2.0 does ship, it should be a much more fleshed out and complete experience than if various features were implemented on their own.

Totally reasonable question, but locking up this thread since there's a lot of yelling. :( If you want to recreate the conversation and keep things all civil-like, that's totally welcome! Please feel free to post another thread (but I definitely recommend checking out these quick guidelines before you do: https://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/3074657442 ).

I understand about the wait for the loot system as the PC Loot System is entirely different from the Console Loot System due to the Auction House so I understand it's going to take a while to get the PC fixes done.

My question though is Paragon 2.0 if it is indeed in the console version then why can't we have it on the PC version as there is no difference in the Paragon System between the two versions. I understand you all want to ship it all together but I think if anything were to come earlier it should be Paragon 2.0 as how it works should be the same on both versions of the game as can't see how it can be different between the two.

If there is a big difference as to how it will work on the Console and PC version can you please share what it is? Thank you.

Because if it were released on the PC simultaneously, they'd be quite literally cutting into console sales. It's not exactly a challenging concept to figure out.

Looks a few information streams got crossed. :)

Paragon 2.0, Loot Runs, Nephalem Trials -- none of these features are in the console version of Diablo III which just released today. These changes are currently under development for Reaper of Souls (though many of them will likely be released for free as part of a pre-expansion patch).

Hope that helps clear things up a bit!

Thanks Lylirra! I haven't checked out the console version due to not able to get it at the moment and also hoping it will be coming out for Xbox One for a later date. :)

I was going off what the person said in the post you replied to which I probably should have copied that as well as he said that the console had paragon sharing but I'm guessing that isn't true since like you said Paragon 2.0 will be coming to consoles at a later date.

Anyways, I look forward to these changes and hope it doesn't take too long to release it. :)

I do have one question which is will all the paragon levels we've gotten so far be added together as personally haven't seen anything official about that as only saw threads of people stating it will which is why everyone is rushing to get every character slot to paragon 100. Just want clarify if this is true or just something that everyone has been assuming.

The console changes to Paragon are best described as Paragon 1.5.

Yes, Paragon 1.5 features shared paragon rewards, but it doesn't include the defining feature of Paragon 2.0 which is the Paragon Stat allocation and infinite levels.

This is the same case for Loot 1.5 on console, which adopts the smart drops and scaled legendaries, but doesn't include the build-changing affixes or redesigned stat mechanics. :)

This has been confirmed by Lylirra herself via twitter;

https://twitter.com/Lylirra/status/370248463738757120

"Your shared Paragon level will be calculated by adding up Paragon EXP across all your heroes."

So yes, although the exact details are still TBD, it looks like all of the experience between your characters will be added to give you a shared Paragon level. This would be league-specific as well.

Hope that helps answer your question Striker.

Thanks DamienJohn those do answer my questions. :)

It would be great if we could get Loot and Paragon 1.5 as it would indeed make the game a little better but understand they want to do it all at once. Let's hope the wait isn't too long. :)
