    I like this post, it's very informative.

    Confirmed that there is no reason to ever leave a skill rune-less, meaning there are only 27 billion reasonable builds. Hear that caco? What ever will we do!?

    One really exciting thing there:

    HURRAAAAY for planned scalability!! What an excellent way to deal with this problem! This makes me love runes twice as much!! :D

    One really depressing thing there:

    My #1 D3 fear: they'll make it too easy in Normal. :( I know the 1st 6 lvls isn't a long time to play, maybe 30-60 mins, but that's a long time to be easily (from the sound of it) avoiding death. HARDER PLEASE, Blizzard!!

    @Yovargas
    I quoted you on the Diablo forums to note on what you said about normal possibly being too easy by what bashiok said
    Maybe he'll reply

    Aww, runes are sounding more and more like boosters rather than just changing the function of a skill. :'(

    This also now brings into question as to which Hydra version that they will have to take out to give the basic stat booster.

    You're confusing one rune with all of them.

    Only one is designed to enhance the base. The rest change the skill entirely.



    Hydra's stat booster is the stronger one using fire wall.

    MiniMonk hopes that is the case.

    Ehh. MM would still consider that rune as changing the function of the skill rather than just a stat booster, but we will see.

    I want Bashiok's job :p

    If point-hoarding became a problem they could always make champions do extra damage for every unspent skill point you have :evil:

    Pardon my ignorance, but what's Bashiok's relation/position in Blizzard?

    Re: Diablo 3 Walkthrough (Bashiok)

    If MiniMonk recalls correctly. Bashiok is the community manager of Diablo 3.

    Edit: As such he just tries to keep good relationships with the community, and tease us with info every now and then. This is the first time that MiniMonk ever saw him post something so large and detailed in answering someone's(this time Risingred) question.

    So mostly a fancy-worded confirmation of what we (well those who followed the game closely) already knew.

    Still, it would have been nice to see if he managed to get level 15 with no skills/traits. Diablo 1 and 2 were laughably easy in the first act as well with relatively few difficulty spikes in form of certain monsters.

    I always got killed (if at all in Act I) in the first room or two in the barracks. Stupid skeleton archers and mages and shaman.

    Re: Diablo 3 Walkthrough (Bashiok)

    I would like to retract this statement:

    I never remembered D1 being the easy at all so konfeta's comment made me curious. So I popped in my Diablo 1 disk for the first time in years, started up a fresh warrior, and got to chopping. My results: I got to level seven (in about 40 minutes) without getting even close to dying once, and only using four or five potions. So even easier then Bashiok's report. I almost always played the sorcerer which I guess may have skewed my memory of its difficulty. (but there was a BIG jump in difficulty as soon as I went down to the third level...)

    [BLUE="http://forums.battle.net/thread.html?topicId=27509093846&sid=3000&pageNo=5"]I'm glad people liked it. Wasn't really the intent. :)

    It's an idea, I'm not sure how long it would be interesting considering the few details I could divulge about quests, areas, locations, etc. I don't know, maybe it's workable though. Different classes and builds... I'm sure I could write something much better than what I did if the goal was to actually recap a play experience.

    I'll mull it over.[/BLUE]

    :thumbup:
    He had all kinds of great posts in that thread. He even posted one of his own ideas.
