Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls expansion has been announced. Some of the things they mention is a new Act, smart drops, loot runs, ten levels, and a revamp on the paragon system, and a new character. There has been no price or date set for this release as of yet.
As a new player in this game, this expansion got me excited for my purchase. They’re making a lot of changes that I think will improve Diablo 3 and bring up the population of players more. I also like to see legendries drop a little bit more; I have yet to see any legendries despite being level 60, and at paragon 8. Also, I am playing on MP level 3 and no sighting of a legendary. In the expansion they said that will change, and the gear will be more towards your character. “Build changing gear” will bring more diversity in the gear that the player will use. I personally like this idea because I don’t have to worry about getting certain gear and making sure it has the right attributes. While adventuring gear will drop that could change things around, but will have to see when it comes out. I’m looking forward to seeing many new builds come out for every character.
The level cap has been raised ten levels, which mean you’re character can obtain level of 70 in the game. Also, paragon will have no cap or limit. So paragon can reach one-fifty or five hundred or even a thousand. I like the no cap system to paragon and this will encourage players to get as high as they want. So far I like the paragon system and don’t really want to see it changed. They plan on having something like a skill point to put it into whatever you want or see fit. I would much rather have it like it is now but the freedom to choose where it goes is a nice change. Despite the changes, grinding away to gain levels will continue, but that’s to be expected. I don’t mind the grinding actually.
Lastly, I want to talk about the loot runs, where the objective is go through the dungeon that’s going to be a 10-15 minute long, will have different settings or areas, and different bosses at the end. The only point in these is for loot and getting upgraded gear. I love this idea and this is what I’m excited for the most out of the expansion. You don’t have to worry about talking to someone or worrying about picking up a quest from someone. In my opinion this will replace doing runs in game and focused more on beating mobs upon mobs while gaining loot and with the smart drops, better loot as well.
There is much more coming out in this expansion, such as a new act, possible multiple endings, and a new character to play as well. Be on the lookout for updates on this expansion and more info to come. Feel free to send me a tweet @darkreaper1337 and tell me your thoughts or opinions.
