That figure in itself isn't exactly something big. I've managed to get crits up to 780k with 1k weapons. Really not sure how they work out damage but I think for every main attribute you have its 1% or something.

Something like that, I can crit for close to 1.5 million and have about 1.5 million toughness which means I only die to every OTHER elite mob at Torment III solo

I find soloing torment to be easier than multiplayer but then maybe its because of the damage everyone does. I have my dps stands at around 60k for all characters with a 800k toughness on the monk.

So the game is finally out. Inserted my D3 RoS CE key, played the game a bit, and got a reminder of why I stopped playing Diablo 3 in the first place. The game is laggy with all the attention is getting. So it will take some time for people to leave again so blizzards server activities can get back to normal. And I must say I am not impressed on that aspect.

But its the end of the day, I havent played too far, there is the entire act5 for me to do.

So how are you guys finding the game so far?

Its fun, but act 5 is almost as hard as the old inferno to me. I finished act 4 on Torment 2 with no problem. I BARELY survive Torment 1 difficulty. Playing it on master now.
Spoiler (show)
The Templar boss was just super difficult. All that healing, shielding and constant reinforcements makes him no fun for me. I had to do him on expert.
EDIT: Goblin HP went from 8 mil in act 4, to 24 mil in act 5.
Some stats: 179779 DPS and 3.766 mil toughness while standing still. 163436 DPS and 2.964 mil toughness while moving. I have a passive that gives me +20% armor, +20% all resistances and +10% damage when i stand still for 1.5 sec or more. Oh and I had zero lag.

Loving the Expansion!

Apart from Act 1, this has to be the longest Act yet. Just entered the Blood Marsh after 5hrs of gameplay, on level 67 at the moment.

Picked up some great items too.

Playing on Torment Lvl 1.

@Starbound laggy? I think not!

The first thing to notice, I have a full green latency bar. Not a single hiccup :).

The second thing to notice... TWO FRIGGIN TREASURE GOBLINS!!! :cry: My Barb can barely kill one unaided and the game throws two at me... <_< Needless to say they both escaped :(.

@MIA I had the same thing, rocking Torment 2 no issue. Get into Act 5 and I struggle badly... :( As you can see in the screenshot I am on Master level.

The only thing I dislike about this new expansion right now is how big the foreign levels are. Its insanely huge and at one point I found the exit and took it without exploring the whole stage. It's insane...

Too big? That isn't what she said ;)

I am enjoyed the Huge maps, reminds me of D2...pity the previous Acts aren't the same...

LvL 69 at the mo, almost finished The Blood Marsh(Torment lvl1)...picked up two great Legendary items yesterday, Breast Plate and a Mighty Two Handed Axe, so I now do 400k DPS Buffed, 4mil toughness and 430k health...so much of the fun :)

I reached level 70 yesterday. The new wizard passives are insane. http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/MIA- ... o/33080811
Blackhole crits between 1.8 and 2.4 mil damage. Hydra deals about 1.5 mil damage per tick. One passive gives the monsters -20% defense, etc, etc.

All this and I still cant survive in torment lol.

very much over loot 2.0. it's duff...

2 handers have suckier DPS than 1 handers...

my wiz has collected 1 weapon, 5 helmets and about 50 billion rings and amulets, most of which were variations of the same set of 5.... (correction, i got one pair of stinky pants... )

my WD keeps collecting useless chest armor and somewhere in the region of eleventy billion crossbows...

my DH has found not one single weapon upgrade, the same 4/5 cruddy helmets, (leroic's crown! again! yeehaa!), and eleventy billion wands...

something is wrong in the land of the loot grind...

on the plus side, i have a nice collection of crafting mats... which are useless because you simply cannot craft the rolls you get from drops... (wiz cannot craft a single wand with INT+socket. it's either/or.)

some ways to go yet, actibliz... :roll:

I'd say loot 2.0 got nerfed. The drops prior to RoS where all class specific items and now its random again which is better imo, but like you said, useless stat and drop allocations.

Cant really say I have this problem, but I didnt pay close attention to drops. I did notice there were no treasure goblins when i played yesterday. One problem I have with the new drops is getting gear for your companion.
If you're a wizard using the templar companion, its pretty hard to get gear with +str mods. My templar has 2k intel now :lol:

Hmm can't say I have this problem either...of the 20-30 new Legendary items I have collected over the past 2 weeks of gameplay, only 3 were for a different class, while perhaps 5 haven't been used for not being a big enough power upgrade and only one has been a dupe item...otherwise every other Legendary has boosted my character in someway...I have only picked up 3 set items, of which 2 were a complete set and I still use them...the other was a helmet, but found a better one...

Last boss was a pain. After dieing 5 times I decided to lower the difficulty. 437 mil HP is a bit too much :lol:
Nice plot twist in the end video, but that is all I'll say :P

Dunno what your problem is... I'm playing Torment I with my wizard without any issues in Act V. And tbh I am not that well equipped either.

I dropped down to Expert and went on from there. Now that the campaign is over I am going to enjoy Adventure Mode :). I also finally got my Barb to break the 100k dps mark :?...

up to lvl 60, all good, once i hit 60, the drops went wonky... as in zero upgrades... i have a number of plans, but the plans roll worse stats than the drops, so crafting itself is a joke :lol:

i'm leaning toward the conspiracy theory that drops favour RoS players... :cussing:

I started a crusader today and playing it on expert. Skeleton King was surprisingly easy. I'm thinking the crusader is currently a bit OP.

Myself and 2 friends had an online lan this weekend and all started with a Crusader, which I might add is a REALLY fun character to play with!

We began on Torment lvl2 and played all the way through till the beginning of Act V before we had to wrap up.
Only time we had to drop the Difficulty is when we got to Act 3, but after a few Leg drops, we upped it back to TormentLvl1 and didn't have any trouble, well it wasn't easy, but a challenge is good. The drops were great! and it was awesome to sit next to my friends while we all played to observe drops and how we all decided to play with the Crusaders. Our styles varied, with certain spells/attacks we all used throughout the game. The drops were great too! Anything from picking up two legs within 2minutes of each other, to double leg drops and we all manage to get at least one or two set items.

After 19hr46minutes:

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Wint ... o/39472253

Not once did we think the class was OP. And we had to tone down the Difficulty when we hit a wall, or we had to get better gear, but we never went below Master.

My main Char:

http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Wint ... ro/4969662

His DPS is a little lackluster, but I am trying to go for a nice tank and building up his toughness.
I do aboot 200-400k buffed combined with certain powers.

Torment difficulty gets unlocked once you hit level 60. So how did you do T2 from level 1? Or am I misunderstanding?
