A player made one of my favorite posts of the year on B.net forums and got a Blue reply that pointed out the blindingly obvious.
We like knowing when you feel that improvements can be made, though, so thank you for the feedback (seriously). We’ll make sure it gets passed along to our developers.
So Paragon levels should add whatever bonus each of us is too lazy to obtain on our gear? Well, that would be convenient.
Since I *have* taken the trouble to add Pickup Radius to my character’s gear (since most of them are not Spin2Win Barbs and thus actually need to get health orbs to survive), but don’t have the budget to add massive DPS, I’d like my Demon Hunter’s Paragon Levels to more Dex and critical hit damage. Kthx!
That said, I think there is some merit to Paragon levels adding more… something. With punctuated equilibrium, perhaps. I think it would be cool if the bonuses varied a bit over time; say if you get 2% MF/GF per level instead of 3%, and then every 5th or 10th you get 5 or 10 extra right there. Same end result, but more fun in the presentation. I’ve seen other players suggest 1% Pickup Radius and/or Faster Run every 10th Paragon level, and of course the request to make all or some of the Paragon level attribute rewards manually-assignable is a common one.
Do you guys want to tinker with the Paragon level bonuses or are you happy with the system as it is?
