A couple of recent forum posts ask for an increase to Diablo 3 difficulty, and while both got Blued, the CMs didn’t add anything to the conversation. It’s a conversation worth having though, so here they are:
I keep reading about this feature, unfortunately, I came to the game after it was removed. It sounds really interesting and cool, and I wish that, once I got better gear good enough for higher MPs , I could be able to experience it
If it returned, Invulnerable Minions would be interesting and probably not so bad now. Players are better, characters are much stronger, and Inferno is easier than back in v1.03. Everyone has a variety of AoE attacks to hit the boss and minions at once, players would lead the minions into crowds of regular monsters to keep their procs and life leech going, etc.
And that’s just the problem with the game, according to some:
Petition bring it back! But you get 1000% MF for being there.
Not much from the Blue there, but I skimmed over the B.net thread to see the response, and it was mostly full of agreement. One is never sure if the B.net forums are 100% trolls or just 90%, but how do you guys feel about the difficulty? I hear a lot of complaints about D3 (and many compliments as well) but “it’s too easy” isn’t often chief amongst the gripes. It can certainly become very easy if you’re well-geared for farming runs on MP0 or MP1, but that’s kind of the point; those levels are there to let players blast through on item runs. The higher MP levels are there for a bigger challenge, and most people I’ve talked to feel that they serve that purpose pretty well.
I certainly haven’t heard anyone pining for a return to the early days of D3, before Paragon levels and Monster Power, when legendaries neither existed nor functioned, when Inferno was “doubled” and a very harsh gear check, when monsters enraged in long battles and healed completely every time you died and left the area, when multiplayer games were harder than solo since monsters got huge health boosts, etc.
That said, I’ll ask all the same… who thinks D3 is too easy now? Anyone who hasn’t played 1000+ hours, or used a Romney-sized bankroll to outfit themselves via the Auction House? And would a return of Invulnerable Minions help things?
