Brainstorm: Ideas that add Replayability

General Discussion
Discuss, add new ideas, brainstorm.

An arena style event:
Selectable from game menu?
Discoverable in an act?
Unlocked like an uber Tristram portal?
Make map design specifically for this event or use PvP maps?

There can be many different styles of play in an arena.
Here was one of my thoughts(done before):
Survival type play.
Solo or Teams(mobs grow stronger for each player added, of course).
Round system, starts 1, then 2, etc...
Each round more mobs spawn and grow stronger. New types of mobs spawn each round.
Every 5 or 10 rounds(depending on how long each round takes) a unique mob pack spawns as a boss.
Boss drops random loot, quality of loot grows with each round.
Event can grant experience or not? Per completion or per each mob killed?


Another idea -
Create a card set, or charms if you will.
These charms are sets, collect the whole set and you created an item you keep in your inventory that turns a specific Set (Natalya's Wrath, Immortal King, Tal Rasha's Wrappings, etc...) scale 10% greater.
Usable only once per set? no more than 3 times?(10-30%)


Another idea -
A dropped very rare item.
Item works like an enchantment in wow.
Item enchants specific armor as if it was a Set piece.
For example Rune of Tal Rasha's Horadric Crest can be used to enchant your rare piece of armor that you found that you think has better stats to be considered as part of the set.
This way you could be wearing all random Rare gear, and still get those set item bonuses.


The more powerful we can make our characters, the more I see a Survival Arena game becoming more popular and fun. If the arena has no limit to difficulty, we will want to acquire the absolute best gear.

games got replayability with people running the first hour of content ..

basically they will need to work in a good consent based pvp system
No because it may lead to more reiteration of game mechanics and or why brainstorm good ideas on a public forum?
replayability is gonna be the fact they make money using RMAH and they will be adding content n stuff like they do with WoW cause its a continuous money maker :)

So if they're going to make money from the RMAH, you're going to need us to play the game. To do that, they need to keep us coming back...replayability.

Blizzard has always listened to their fans, so share your ideas. Maybe one will make it into a content patch.
