This is like a whole new different game and I absolutely love it. The class changes are nice. I'm doing quite well in Torment 2 with my Barb right now. The game feels fresh again the mechanics are a lot more fluid, a lot less server lag.

Heads up tho.. don't buy new legendaries off the auction house right now.. I got this amulet last night and decided to see if I could put it up on the AH. It was totally glitched but I put it up anyways for a 100m bid to start.. well some poor soul decided to bid on it. All the items that were glitched like that one are now BOA ( they should have been in the first place) so the guy that is buying it won't even be able to equip it. If you research any of the new legendaries on the AH you can actually see you acquired the item as well.

I actually found the same leg weapon rolled for different levels.... It's nothing fancy but neat to see the new system in play. I've also dropped a set recipe, and some kind of weird higher end crafting mat for the new lvl 70 archon glove replacement.

I have actually been away from this game for a long time now. It just didn't live up to my D2 days I guess. Is it worth getting back into now after all the changes? Is the real money auction house finally gone?

It hasn't actually been removed yet (3 weeks out I believe), but with all the changes brought about by the patch 2.0.1, and with a lot of the items BoA, it makes the AH pretty much useless.

Plus, the drop rates have gone up quite a bit, I played for 1/2 an hour last night on Master, and got 2 blues, half a dozen rares and a Mempo of Twilight for my Monk, so I was quite pleased.

Also, the rolls are much better, as almost everything I found was immediately useful.

Most of the Legendaries in my stash are junk now. This is a level 31 item that was better than what my DH had... Took me a while to realize what this was doing to the enemies...

Fired this up last night for the first time in months and liked what I saw so far. Except that nirvana spec is dead, but ah well.
Running torment 4 with my existing gear and found a set plan and legendary sword off one elite pack.

Sword looked decent (1h, ~1250 dps, ~500 dex, ~14% more physical dmg) but I'll have to calculate how much the +physical dmg does for me, because as-is I lose 7% or so dps according to the in-game compare

I'd say it's worth a second look since that won't cost you anything. This was a pretty major patch similar to the (don't remember what number it was) DII one that changed the game completely.

It also gives you the chance to reset all of the game events so that you get things like the initial boss drop under the new loot system.

I started a new barb and have been finding decent drops. Pretty sure none of the sub - lvl 61+ legs are level specific and thus can drop at any character level with appropriate stat ranges. (Just found the shoulders with uninterruptable town portal @ lvl 51.... ;) ).

Now that they seemed to have gotten rid of the scumbag profiteers ruining this game, might pick it up again in the near future.

The AH didn't need to be used if you didn't want to... Would I pay $250 for an item? Hellz no, but for some people time is more important than money.

I do pretty good for myself and don't mind paying $15-$20 for something that takes me 15 minutes to earn in real life.
