I got my hands on the Diablo 3 beta today. And of cause I got really excited about finally getting the chance to play this game. I have been playing Diablo 2 and World of Warcraft and I love this type of games. So I really had high expectations on the game when I installed it.
There has been much talk about that Diablo 3 will require a really good computer, But I’m on my MacBook Pro with 4kb ram and a 256 mb graphic card and it worked out good. Some spikes from time to time but nothing that was destroying my experience.
I decided to roll a Demon Hunter as my first character. And I can say that I don’t get the real feeling of the character by just playing the beta. When I killed the first boss; The Skeleton King I was level 8. And that is basically the end of the beta. There is not that much good experience farming abilities in the beta. As Act 1 is very similar to Act 1 in Diablo 2.
But some things that I really like with the game is that you can sell your items when you are on the field playing. So you will never have your inventory full. This mainly effect the start of the game when you save up on every item you get to have money for repairs and items.
And it also seems that your gold will be shared by all your characters. This will make it easier to start a new character.
I’ll keep on updating this blog when I found out more cool things to tell you all!
