    I have never grinded in Diablo 2 and dont plan to in Diablo 3.

    I HATE grinding.. Thats why i played WoW for a month and wondered why people play that boring game..

    "Grinding is a term used in video gaming to describe the process of engaging in repetitive and boring tasks not pertaining to the story line of the game." - Wikipedia Grinding (Video Games)

    I played Diablo 2 for over 10 years and have NEVER gotten bored while playing it.. I have done hundreds of Baal runs IN A DAY and loved every single one.. Yes it was repetitive, but NEVER got bored, and thats all I hope for in Diablo 3. I want to do diablo runs in inferno all day every day for years to come, and thats all I can really ask of blizzard to give us. After doing like 50 SK runs in the open beta I wanted to another run more then the last, and thats all thats goona be on my mind until well..

    CANT WAIT FOR 5/15

    I have never grinded in Diablo 2
    I have done hundreds of ball runs in a day

    IDK?

    On another note getting to lvl 99 in D2 takes way longer than getting to 85 in Wow

    People play wow for many reasons.
    1) they love the world and the lore it is centered around
    2) the social aspect of the game
    3) for some its to be good at PVP, others it to be end game raiders, and others it for role play.

    Both games has grinding, every RPG I think I ever played required some grinding. And running Baal Runs over and over is grinding, so you did grind in D2.

    There are 2 things that are required if you want to be "good" in RPG games.

    1) Don't be stupid.
    2) You need to be able to do 100+ Baal runs a day and not get bored. Mere mortals call it grinding.

    Emphasis heavily on the "+".

    Wow is boring if you make it boring...unless your at max level and gear on a small server and old raids still requires someone to group with :/. Wow is all about the social aspect mainly. It's a very different focus than Diablo so not = comparison.

    What you did was definitely grinding. You just happened to enjoy it.
    I never did it in D2, and I won't be doing in D3.
    Unfortunately going by what the dev team has said, my only hope of entering Inferno then would be to buy items at the RMAH. And I'm definitely not going to do that.
    I guess I'll never complete Inferno. :/

    you don't have to buy... you can "trade" you know, sell your unwanted legendary to RMAH -> get balance -> use RMAH balance to buy the gear you need! bam! you are trading not buying with your money :P

    Or you can just the gold AH normally.... if for some improbable reason gold AH doesn't have the gear you want... then just sell your gold for RMAH balance and buy it from there... see no actual money from you required.
