Diablo 3 Best Level 1-70 Strategies, Cheese-Free
The Season One leaderboard race quickly turned into a farce (in Softcore, at least) when players exploited the huge exp provided by several bounties that could be completed by undergeared characters on Torment 6. All people had to do was party up (for the greater exp) and keep creating games until they got the proper […]

Vote: Changes to Diablo 3′s Nephalem Valor system?

Posted 21 Dec 2012 by

Diablo 3′s DiabloWikiNephalem Valor system is a hot topic of late. Yesterday’s news and argument touched off quite a bit of discussion and debate on changes to how Nephalem Valor works, and when I read dozens of good comments with lots of competing ideas for how to modify and improve the system, I figured a vote was in order.

Rather than just a boring 1-5 approve/disapprove vote, here are some of the best ideas I saw for changes and improvements to the NV system. Select as many as you like, and we’ll see where the fan opinions point and perhaps give the devs some direction for their improvements?


Changes to the NV system? Vote for all that you like.

(Note: The Holiday Vote was deemed excessively snarky and cynical by some, so we pulled it. I enjoy D3 and enjoy joking about it, but I forget that some people take this stuff so seriously.)


Last Vote Results

The last vote was tucked into a news post about the meaning of your BattleTag™, and it asked how you choose your Battle.net ID name. Unusually heavy majority with the same choice on this one, and I’m surprised that 5% used their real name. Honestly, I only put that option in there so Elly wouldn’t complain that I’d left her out, and now she knows that she’s not alone in her lack of imagination! ;)

How did you pick your BattleTag?

  • Online name I’ve used forever. (64%, 1,255 Votes)
  • From some other game/character/movie/music/etc. (11%, 208 Votes)
  • Tossed cat onto keyboard. (6%, 115 Votes)
  • It’s my real name. (5%, 101 Votes)
  • Spur of the moment, off the top of my head, blah. (5%, 99 Votes)
  • Created for D3 after careful thought and deliberation. (5%, 94 Votes)
  • Something else. (5%, 89 Votes)
  • Don’t remember. (0%, 14 Votes)

    v3B_kNzs4EOFnrS1gvKwww2Another recent vote was tucked into an article I wrote purely to work off some of my annoyance that Diablo 3 still has only 6 hotkeys. It’s nice to see that most of you guys agree with me that more are needed, but more votes and a stronger majority would have been nice. I’ll try to word the question in a more leading fashion next time, and post the vote more prominently.

    Should Diablo III add more skill hotkeys?

  • Definitely. At least 7 or 8. (56%, 414 Votes)
  • No way. Six is a better design. (27%, 196 Votes)
  • Not sure / no opinion. (17%, 124 Votes)
  • Total Voters: 734


    The last vote post asked which of Diablo 3′s three followers you like best. There’s no telling how much of the votes were for fashion vs. function vs. a shared obsession with hidden footprints, but Medieval Barbie is the clear favorite.

    Which is your favorite of Diablo III’s Followers?

  • Eirena the DiabloWikiEnchantress (37%, 1,085 Votes)
  • Lyndon the DiabloWikiScoundrel (26%, 782 Votes)
  • Kormac the DiabloWikiTemplar (21%, 624 Votes)
  • Hate them all / don’t use Followers. (10%, 303 Votes)
  • Not sure / no opinion. (6%, 165 Votes)
