Can I ask what effect weapons actually have on characters like the wizard, or it seemed even the monk? I equipped a dagger at one point to the wizard, said it boosted arcane something or other, and yet the attacks didnt change, were still the basic ranged magic missile. Do weapons have an effect on the attack abilities or is it only if you fall back to the stock attack button?

completely different than skyrim. Not to say you wouldn't like it though.

Diablo is a top down point and click loot centric game. If you want to see if you like it Diablo 2 is available fairly cheap these days and is still a great game.

I'm having a tough time deciding if I should buy this game. I prefer FPS/RPG games such as Thief, Amnesia, etc. Why wouldn't they allow you the option to Zoom into that profile ?

My draw to this is memories of Diablo I in the late .90 ( 1998 I believe )...good old days

Can't really compare the 2 dude. They will both be epic games in their own way. I haven't played skyrim(cant stand single player, so 1980's) but I hear how popular it is. You should have played the free beta weekend.

Since all abilities are based off weapon damage, it influences that. For example, if you have a regular dagger it may be 5-7 dmg. One with the arcane modifier listed of (example) 1-3 would change that exact same dagger to 6-10 dmg. So an ability that does 200% weapon damage would do 10-14 with the first weapon, and 12-20 with the second.

Or so I was led to believe in my forum digging, as always see my disclaimer below before blasting me cause I'm wrong ;)

OMG we are only 2 weeks from d3 now. I never thought I would be able to say this. Slowest 2 weeks of my life coming up. Waiting for water cooling parts, d3 and 670 release.

Can't fricking wait!! I played the open beta and it got me completely hooked. This : Diablo 3 Countdown has been set as my homepage for weeks now. It's going to be a nice change from BF3. Getting sick and tired of that game.

I think I will pick up the game on launch. I found the beta to be alright, but I think once they get the online play sorted out, I think it will be ok. A couple of friends and I have been looking for a decent online game to play now that we are spread out in different cities. We used to play DII together, so naturally D3 should be a good fit too.

Probably won't be playing this game for a while, got others that are in the queue and with my extra long commute I have less time to game alone (co-op swtor gaming for the most part these days and she doesn't like D3 from the beta)
