My objective must be very different to many others who play the game.
Only in moderation, It’s a game I love to play.
For me, Diablo is just a relaxing game to play. From my life, my family, my girlfriend, even my friends! Diablo player, even when I have been playing since release. Consequently, it gives me an escape from reality. Keep reading! We got up to paragon 150 or so and she wasn’t feeling it anymore. You should take it into account. GR’s, collect the shards so spend the shards. Watch the stacks get bigger and bigger, spend those mats and cry when they are gone, farm more mats, Hoard mats. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with being burned out or bored with a game. This is the case. Diablo 3 on both the laptop and Xbox One when I get the itch to play the game but that itch does not last long. Diablo 3 as much as Diablo I do like both games but for me Diablo 3 came out at a time when I was getting burnt out on the genre and I do not know when or if ever gonna be at a stage that I am not burnt out or easily get burnt out on that genre.
GR and such so having a fully optimized best performing builds ain’t really my priority.
The fun comes from thinking up your favorite combinations please do not play a lot, rarely group, Playing solo DH, chakram/mara. Nonetheless, leg Gems, and the 70 GRift push. Of course, just have two conquests left to go and that’s done. That was a fun character to play. Of course, when the console version for Diablo 3 came out and I did get a Xbox 360 and later the Xbox one I got it for both consoles and I find the game is better on the Xbox One since I have no lag since I play offline and I can really play wacky characters like a melee Witch Doctor without movement skills and no run speed and no pets just melee and passive skills.
For me I played Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 almost everyday and long hours at that. For the most part that was the main 2 games I played, especially when D2 was released. Bethesda games but at the moment I am getting burnt out on them. At the moment I do have the itch but I have a feeling it will only be for a few days or so and after that to some other game.
At the moment I am more in the survival town building games like Stonehearth and Timber and Stone. Normally, i don’t actually play with anyone. My friends stopped playing Diablo a while ago, quite a few soon after it’s release, and the rest soon after RoS release. That doesn’t bother me though!
