Diablo 3 used to be one of those games that we loved to hate due to many unwanted changes and failed expectations. However, those have since been mostly remedied, and the latest installment in the hack-n-slash series has attained some of the appeal of its predecessors. A bunch of updates adding new areas, modes and skills certainly helped as well.
The 2.4.3 patch brings us a lot of new things – an anniversary event and, of course, new class and set items, as well as an update to Greater Rifts, so now might be the perfect time to go back to Diablo 3 for some dungeon crawling action.
Adventure Mode was a real game changer back in the day when it was released with the Reaper of Souls expansion. Instead of just going through the main story, we got some interesting end game content with completing bounties and rifts, and it really did add countless hours of gameplay.
There’s no better way to grind those paragon levels and better gear – set dungeons, Greater Rifts, you name it, they have it. It’s easier than ever to get lost in the world of Sanctuary, and then go do it on a larger difficulty level.
To keep things fresh, there are constant updates that revamp sets, add new areas and events and tweak balance of heroes and skills. The most recent patch brought an anniversary event that let players experience the pixelated land of the old Diablo.
Blizzard certainly takes care of Diablo 3 and makes sure to motivate us to go back with every patch they release. There’s always something new to do.
New Playable Characters
Back when it launched, there were five different classes in Diablo 3: Barbarian, Monk, Demon Hunter, Wizard and Witch Doctor. The release of the Reaper of Souls expansion brought us the Crusader, a new favorite of many. For the first time in the history of the Diablo series, players were able to choose the gender of the class they wanted to play as, which was a refreshing and much needed change.
Of course, each class had its own unique play style, and the revamping of sets along with the addition of runes on skills ensured that there could be a variety of viable builds for each class.
Now the Necromancer is coming, a fan favorite from Diablo 2, and it seems like the perfect time to get back into the series, get yourself acquainted with the new class, and grind, grind, grind to make your characters as strong as they can be!
