Diablo 3 Attempts to Solve Endgame Problem by Adding 100 More Levels

Posted by | August 20, 2012

Not more content, just more character levels. This new approach toward adding an endgame to the popular, but struggling action grindfest Diablo 3 is called the Paragon system. Under this system, characters will be able to earn up to 100 Paragon levels after reaching level 60 of the old, boring, outdated basic system. These Paragon levels will give characters bigger stats and built-in Magic Find. The Magic Find stat is especially useful, since that improves the quality of loot drops from monsters, and feeds directly into Blizzard’s real money auction house. Kotaku has the story.

    Adding another treadmill at the end of the first treadmill is a way to open up further character progress, but will players come back for another couple rounds through the same game just to make the numbers go up?

    What Diablo 3 needs is more game, more to do in the world and with your character. Bashing monsters was never the purpose of Diablo 1 and 2, just the method of achieving that purpose. Diablo 3 needs more customizing and design options.

    Er. Bad call.

    What made Diablo 2 wasn’t going to be making it 100 higher levels; but the extra content added by the expansions!
