RoS beta questions/tests? Ask away!

Hey all,

I've been lucky enough to be invited to the RoS F&F Beta and am currently loving it, the feel is very dark and gloomy to start with and the story is great so far. I've decided to max my DH before starting a crusader and the other classes but I thought I'd make a thread to post some neat pics I take and also for anyone to ask questions etc.

So if you want something tested or a specific question about RoS answered, Ask away! and I'll do everything in my power to either test it with a video(although my upload speed sucks hence no stream) or take pics etc

I know there is a lot of streams out there showing everything, but I thought I'd post this for specific ANZ questions if anyone has anything they want to know.

No spoilers storywise though.

So ask away!

Are gems dropping at the same or higher quality?

I have heard that marquise will drop - please confirm narull. If they do - may be the only time I will ever get one :) Or in 5 years time when I can afford to combine nine of the others... to make a chest work

Question about the quiver - I notice no attack speed on it. Is this because you now assign attack speed via paragon points?

Nick, I was watching Modz stream most of yesterday and he picked up marquise gems that dropped at I think around level 70.

If marquise gems are dropping does this mean they can they be crafted to a higher level gem? Or is this just to remove the issue of how much they cost to craft?

Narull, I just read Defender's post, where he says it is the total number of paragon levels that are important rather then the total amount of experience earned.

If this is the case, we would be better levelling all of our low level characters to a mid range rather than grinding for the long term to 100, as the low levels are much easier to get. Can you confirm if this is the case please.

Marquise are all that have dropped for me from the very start, all sorts(none of the new one yet I don't think it's implemented yet), that being said it's partly a blessing in disguise as the high removal cost is harsh. I've actually suggested to Blizz to put a warning on when using them that removing them costs a lot more than you're used too(unless you just DE old items when you get new ones like I do).

It's just none on that quiver, others that have dropped have had it. I could enchant the quiver but legendary enchants needs legendary matts.

Which post? Cause it's wrong atm, I have more plvls total on live then I do on beta. It's def exp(which is what Blizz said they intended it to be).

Maybe removal costs should be dropped? As they are (currently) BOA anyways... and if you can only trade within party for 2hours... why the penalty - particularly if thats all thats dropping at lvl70 ? Not as if they will be "rare" anymore

I think it will be adjusted, won't be completely dropped as it is a good gold sink, but I think it should still cost a bit just maybe not as much as currently.

Hopefully this kinda thing is what they want from beta. I freely admit that I'm not a 'pro' player which in course means I'm not rich goldwise so I think the cost is a bit much atm, but I don't think it should be completely gone.

Yes you are right - I didn't mean remove entirely - just more in line with all other current removal costs - you get the point that I meant though...

Does the DH actually feel "tougher" as it seems to be the most out of favour character atm... will changes to skills / items change this?

I can't really say yet as I'm just playing on normal for my first playthrough, I know stuff dies damn quick and I'm yet to die and Vengeance is amazing(both looks and dmg).

But I'd rather withhold judgement until I try the higher difficulties at 70.

IMPERIAL GEMS. Apparently even better than Marquise. Yay.

looks like I am not going to waste my gold on gems, might as well wait and just pick them up :)
