Any idea what the price is in £?
That could be a savings thing I imagine.

You'd need to buy a phisical copy from the US, but considering you'd have to pay the shipment, I don't think you'd end up saving much

I think they give all Europe prices in EUR, regardless of whether you're in a country that uses euros or not.

Also, the physical copy is usually priced correctly here as well. But I wanted the digital pre-order so I could get fancy aesthetic bonus items. :P

When I go to Battle.net it gives me the price of £32.99 (which is €40/$55).

Same increased price in £ then. Frustrating!

There have been tons of sales and discounts on RoS pre-orders, even a few shady sites that sell CD keys from physical copies which you may be able to get a better deal on.

Ancient Spear - Boulder is silly. I got a 9 million crit with it last night.

Our small clan had 11 legendaries drop in a few hours of playing last night.

I've spent a hour or so playing with Fetzie and with another friend later.
We got DEMOLISHED in Torment 4. Even though we both were running 150k+ dps and 50k+ HP. The keymaster from act1 literally 1shot me with anything, fireball or standard attack.

I also noticed a ton higher crits (had some spam of 1kk crits with aoe abilities) but the HP of mobs also scale exponentially.

Torment 3 feels more or less on the same line of Inferno MP 7 to me: similar HP, similar damage.

I suspect everything from Torment 4 onwards is tuned either for lvl 70, or for insanely high Paragon levels.

In that hour we dropped I believe about 6 legendaries. I noticed that the quantity of loots has dramatically decreased, while the quality has increased significantly.

Overall I'm liking the system for now. Craftables also have received big buffs to their stats (shoulders for example received a good +100 to both min and max of the main stat) and the new division in 2 stat categories greatly increases the average item qualityes (no more reflect + loot distance + globe health + hp regen rares)

Something funny I noticed, you now need some items obtained by sharding white items for all crafts (in small quantities, very easy to acquire), but I had a damn hard time getting white items dropping in Torment! (and ofc, you can't shard items from vendors)

Halls of Agony for all of your white item needs. They made vendor items non-salvagable because people would have a level 1 mule buy from a vendor for a couple of gold to salvage them.

Loving the changes to Wizard in terms of making the four elements more prominent. Made myself a full on Lightning Wizard, which while not super effective, at least great fun! :lol:

I love that the new 4 piece set bonus for Wizards is that every time you use an elemental spell you cast a meteor of that element with an 8 second cooldown. So you can be a meteor spamming fool with a mix elemental build.

FYI: Skeleton King is bugged and treats your first kill on a 60 as if it was your first kill period, so free legendary. Got shoulders on my Barb that makes all of my gear indestructible, woo no repair bills.

They have started an XP event in Diablo 3 until Reaper of Souls launches. An extra 50% XP that is multiplicative, not cumulative. So if you normally get +200% XP from difficulty/items, you would get +300% instead during this event. So time to get to levelin those alts or workin on some paragon levels!
