I don’t have a single screenshot from my time in D2. The prevailing images that I carry around of my days in previous Diablo games is a shadowy darkness punctuated with moments of intense fiery red. However, I can’t seem to stop clicking the screenshot button in D3.
Although I imagine Error 37, and my subsequent spring fling with CTRL-V, will take awhile to fade from my first impressions of Diablo 3 going live, I did get the opportunity to create my Witch Doctor yesterday arriving alongside my husband’s Wizard outside of New Tristram. We only managed to claw ourselves up to L11, but I must say that what the beta promised, the final product delivered and I’m thoroughly enjoying my return to Diablo’s playground. I don’t imagine that I’ll be hitting nightmare any time soon (unlike some people I know) but as a returning Diablo player, I expected to be running the ropes rather smoothly; however, I did have a few questions crop up, either myself or from others getting ready to start playing. Since I obviously cannot be alone in my derp (wishful thinking) here’s Wind’s self Q&A.
There were a couple of free betas this weekend, as Diablo 3 and Tera ramped up numbers to stress test their servers and I spent a few hours poking around in each locale.
