Diablo: Immortal (Mobile & PC)


Recommended Posts

I know... I know, 

its a bad path, no return from untold countless hours, and worse... no cake at the end

Legendary drops are capped per day (someone in game said 6, I haven't verified that number). A number of other things are capped per day or week, which really slows "free" progress after a few hours.

I made it to Paragon level 30, which is suggested level for Hell 2 difficulty. And I'm calling that a good place to stop/uninstall. 

Endgame grind is MMO type play involving "Shadows vs Immortals". Achievement grind is typical and starting to feel tedious. Legendary drops are capped and set drops require grinding dungeons in parties.

Biggest bug on PC is random keyboard and mouse input failures... very frustrating during combat to have one or the other suddenly quit working for a few seconds (and nothing to indicate stun or something).

I've had a lot of disconnects, at least some are related to the wifi I'm on.

And my laptop's graphics are underpowered so I'm also tired of bad frame rates.

Never thought Id be playing on anything Apple specially an IPAD , but the frame rates on this old thing we use for calls with my Ammamma  seems to be holding out well ...what do you think about this game as just something to pass time, knowing we'd never be good at its end game because of lack of drops.. is there any possible merit in that

If your lap top is getting you bad frame rates would you consider playing on a smaller (owch) painful screen like your phone?

Gogo - yes, I think it has merit for casual play but it has a few resources geared towards daily farming (iben fahd's sanctum, crests for elder rifts, or twice a week like helliquary) so be prepared to make a deliberate decision to farm or not. And dungeons in higher difficulties require multiple players so it takes a little more time/effort to try for set drops. 

One nice thing w/ casual play would be that you wouldn't notice the daily drop cap on legendaries. Playing an hour or three every few days, the cap would always be reset.

 

I think your comment further up about the screen size of the tablet makes a good case for tablet play. And tracks with my personal experience with cell phone games... just a bit too small / hard on aging eyes.

Update:

I must confess that since GPU prices dropped a little, I finally got one for my desktop. And then I installed Diablo Immortal and having been playing regularly.

It was starting to get repetitive when someone invited me to the Immortals which is part of the Immortals vs Shadows endgame play. That got me in a clan too. The Immortal activities and the clan chat to find parties added some variety. But we lost our immortal status so it's back to the shadows tomorrow! This will be my 2nd time in the Shadows but 1st w a clan so s/b more interesting this time.

Oh, and I changed servers from the 1st one I was on to a newer one. I don't see nearly as much evidence of pay to win in this server. So I don't feel as outclassed as I did. (But I've still kept my PvP to a minimum, not going to be fodder for the P2W players).

Hey Masteff! Im thrilled you hookedup with a clan...thats a huge part of gaming for me.. itd pretty much have to have social as a major component for me to want to carve out some of my time for it.   Gratz on the new GUI! did you have to upgrade mother board and /or video card or was that really enough?

And i was thinking about the pay to win... you know for normal people like us, just having a place to go to and have fun with others and this game's brilliant mechanics is probably enough right?

Awhile back I bought a used Dell Optiplex micro tower, which is a business model and will only fit a low profile with standard heat sink (not double wide like so many are now). So I had to buy specifically to fit it (Nvidia GT 1030).

I feel (but don't know) that they nerfed set drops in the last update; new update tonight so curious to see change.

Biggest mental adjustment I see that a free-to-play user needs to make is progression is slower. Specifically in the items that improve combat rating. I've seen lower level players with higher CR than me and I look at their profile and know they had to have spent money. And my mental adjustment is that I'm okay with that. I'm not in competition with them... I'm just happy to hack-n-slash and slowly fill in various things on the achievement list. I spent a couple hours yesterday helping someone grind a dungeon for a particular set drop and got more satisfaction than from my name on the leader board.

I'm lucky to get one legendary crest per week. So when people do runs with 10 legendary crests, you can assume they just spent $25. Nope, I'll go spend that at a restaurant instead.

I was worried about the clans being too cliquish but everyone is too new and random. Turn over seems to constantly bring in new faces too.

You're tempting me to reinstall it back on my desktop.  Schot had to take stuff out of my computer and now its got very little HD space so Id have to get pick up some more drive space but luckily those arent too exensive

:devil:
