I keep expecting to pick up a rare item with a X% chance of being "beeped" in the"beep", besides 5 other useless attributes...

I'm still playing D3 but not as much. I have a Barbarian, Demon Hunter at 60 and a Witch Doctor at 55. I plan to play through all the characters to Infernal Act 1. I find the WD the most difficult to play of the three. Some of the skills are pretty useless too. Good thing they have elective mode or I probably wouldn't have made it this far. Right now she's in Hell Act 2 and I'm still having fun. :)

Was going to say I'm surprised anyone is playing this broken stock market game anymore.

I wonder what the numbers are like of how many players used to play and how many still play.

Blizz isn't releasing their numbers, but data from other services (like xfire usage) show a marked decline which isn't abating.... hours played over the last month (not from the high of initial release) is down to about 40% from what it was.

Xfire - Diablo III

40% is pretty huge drop. I still expected more though. But what does Blizz care? They already sold their copies!
