The First Max Level Diablo 3 Barbarian, RememberedPosted 23 Jan 2013 by
Today’s example came courtesy of Fmulder’s Google wizardy. He found this photo of some goatman artwork from the Blizzard museum, and after I followed the “new image alert” to see it, I looked through the galleries for a bit and tripped over the amazing image you see below with an amazing level 60 Diablo 3 Barbarian in her end game gear.
It was part of the Powerpoint demonstration at Gamescom 2011, and was meant to show the sort of character growth we’d see from level 1 to 60. At that point the game was going through an ill-advised attributes overhaul that had removed the Int/Vit/Dex/Str stats and replaced them with a system in which every single character/class only wanted Attack on their gear. That got changed during the Beta, thankfully, but more than that, I found the Barb’s end game gear and stats amazing.
Check out that massive 1909 DPS! Resistances in double figures! A mighty 2.62 Critical Hit Chance! There’s no telling how far you’d get in Inferno with a character so well-equipped. (The first zombie outside of Tristram, probably.) So um, yeah. Things change during development. (The whole Gamescom 2011 gallery is a nice time capsule with Runestone progression visuals, old gem graphics, LOLable Inferno item previews, etc.)
