    Wondering how Blizzard is going to implement Expansions for Diablo 3...

    I remember hearing about two expansions for Diablo 3 and after having played the game up to the nightmare level, I am wondering what Blizzard will do for these expansions. Besides making two or more characters,what else will Blizzard do? Will they add a couple of new acts? Will they add addition monsters for each level? How much new area will Blizzard a give us to explore? Will the dialogue change for Hell and Inferno levels? What do you folks think?

    The following things (among others) were implemented with the D2 expansion pack and later patches:


    • more character classes
    • further acts
    • charms
    • runes for socketing
    • runewords
    • jewels
    • more set items
    • more uniques
    • more crafting recipes
    • more item affixes
    • second weapon/shield slot
    • bigger stash
    • ladder/non-ladder separation + resets
    • special events like dclone or übers


    BTW, sapphires, diamonds and skulls haven't been implemented as well.

    A lot of that is content they should have added in the first place :(

    My ONE thing I hope they implement is a 99 level dungeon, or something to that effect. I've wanted something like that since Diablo 1 was a new game. Each 10 floors the tile set changes, and every floor the hue changes just a little bit -- like those old school arcade games (Think Q-Bert, Dig Dug or Millipede). Yes, we all know endless dungeons have been done before... it's just that this is the style of game that is perfect for it.

    One thing we'll get for sure is a lot of complains on forums when they release anything

    I wonder if they decide to put new item level into game - that would have great impact on economy.
    ilvl 64 would make almost every ilvl 63 item obsolete after few weeks.
    And people that bought their items for $$ (or millions of gold) would rage.
    On the other hand everyone wants more items and more powerful ones.

    It is for this reason that any expansion would have to start going wide with itemization rather than deep. If they do the progressive expansion like they do with WoW (unlikely), they'd undermine their RMAH. It would recover after a fashion, but they'd effectively divide all items below ilvl6X by 0.

    I think their biggest point of growth will need to be avenues to find loot. Whether that is through custom games, PvP-E maps, challenge dungeons (timed, or other high-risk high-reward features like the crumbling vault), etc. Right now there is no competition, no REAL reason to group up with friends (honestly, there are not many groups of 4 people just love farming the end game together - it's mostly solo farming).

    Everything else the expansions could contain are mention above.

    How about, an extra skill rune for all existing skills, on top of all the new skills from the expansion char(s). Extra passive slot for all characters for a total of four equipped passives; a couple of new passives as well.

    Next expansion character should be strength-based melee and I hope is a shapeshifting druid with minor spells and support summons.

    Won't it be Wow style?
    New act = raise level cap to introduce new items, maybe new skill runes etc

    Your old gear will be good for the old content, but crap for the new.

    Maybe new classes.

    By the second expansion PvP should be nearly ready for release.

    This thread cracks me up, because no one here knows anything concrete about any expansion, and anything posted here is pure speculation.
