    Re: Diablo 4, are you ready?

    If it isn't so overwhelmingly set-driven like D3 is (and preferably not so item-driven, either), I might be interested again. They also have to shake up game-play, perhaps so that we're back to it taking forever to reach max level...but still getting skill points each time.

    Sounds like I do not need to go over the faults of D3 but...yeah, it really sucked that every single season there was one indisputably 'best' set per class, which pretty much required that you use only one or two main skills for damage, and all you did was go around spamming that....

    ...or, if you wanted to 'play it your own way', do it on lower GR or torment levels, depending on just how gimped your creation is by virtue of non-main-set-use.



    Then when they rolled out the legendary gems. So get the best-in-class set and grind until you get your BIS items for that set/build, all the while leveling gems. Ugh. Fun for a bit, but soon it was just another set of hoops you jumped through. That's all D3 was: everyone jumping through the same hoops.

    Being set driven is annoying, in d2 sets were powerful but not godly, they were complete sets capable of max difficulty, but using unique/legendary items was better, with highest quality rare items of extreme rarity. In d2 sets and uniques also had set and unique properties, there were variables on quality, but for the most part what you got was predictable, meaning someone could build a character off of certain builds, while in d3 rng is so prevalent that build planning is a crapshoot, as they all drop based on rng and your characters prefferred stat.
