Mhm, I remember my Orb-sorc vividly enough.thespanner said:This.
Players shouldn't be saddled with an unplayable character in the mid to late game (how many players gave up transitioning from normal to nightmare, for example?) because they didn't plan precisely how to spend all the skill points they would acquire from the moment they began the game. It's unreasonable to expect players to understand how all the skills are going to play based only on how they are described.
Yes, some people are going to grind through fifty playthroughs to hone their build, but there are plenty of others who will play once, or a small handful of times, and shouldn't be denied the opportunity to properly experience the gameplay for the whole amount of time they choose to play.
(By the way, if you guys really want to be cynics you should complain about this shift to advanced-build-customisation-through-runes in the context of the introduction of the real money store, given that runes will presumably be tradeable.)
I also remember having NOTHING BUT FKN COLD BOLT till level 30... =(
Or even a Hamm0rdin/Avenger, Those had even less offensive power pre 18/24 respectively.
And don't even get me started on a Bone-Necro, fkn teeth. =(
