Diablo 3's 'Paragon' Revealed
Filed under: DIABLO 3, BLIZZARD

Tired of being lvl 60 in Diablo 3? Well, Blizzard seems to have a solution for you - something that'll make the game a bit more exciting for those who have gone beyond the maximum skill level in a particular character class. Here's the word, as posted on Blizzard's official Diablo 3 web site:

Introducing the Paragon System
The new Paragon system coming in patch 1.0.4 is designed to address Magic Find gear-swapping while providing players who've reached level 60 with an extended progression system. Here's how it works:

  • After you hit level 60, any further experience you earn from killing monsters will begin to count toward Paragon levels
  • There are 100 Paragon levels
  • Every Paragon level will reward you with:
    • Core stats such as Strength, Dexterity, Intelligence, and Vitality in amounts similar to what you'd gain from a normal level 3% Magic Find and
    • 3% Gold Find
  • In addition, a distinctive increasingly-impressive border will surround your character portrait in the in-game party frame to denote your Paragon progression, with a new frame earned after every ten levels. Your Paragon level will also be visible to other players wherever your normal level is shown

This will be part of the Blizzard's recently announced 1.0.4 patch.

Read on.

No thanks. I was very dissapointed with the storyline in Diablo 3. Playing it once was enough for me.

The laziest "end-game" idea ever.

D3 was such a waste of money. Even though I got it for 40 euros which was a bit cheaper than at most places.
  Terminator: Agreed. I wasted $60 on that game. Now it's collectin…

Am i the only one around here who actually enjoys the game ?
  Vader: I'm sure not. Although I must admit, I haven't played…

Oh look... more grinding :/

Item farming in D2 was fun, D3 just lacks that certain... something... can't put my finger on it though.

I've been waiting for a reason to buy this game and now it's finally arrived.

Playing it once for the story and the action was fine. After it again, only this time, the beasts have more hp and do more damage? After it even one more time but this time.....
And now they give you this system?
None of this is about skill, it's grind grind grind bah, freaking minions.

That's what a hack'n'slash is about, you morons.
Breedy_Mcfluff Aug 21 2012, 12:04 pm EDT
Therefore, I don't like this hack'n'slash game entry!

I'd rather trade for TF2 hats than deal with that auction house.

and people still ask why i'm pro genocide.

Just to make a point - this is one of the most enjoyable games I've played in the past years. I've been playing it with a friend (a female onevmind you), while sharing a joint, and we ended up playing through the night, having a good time.
It's been a while since the last time I enjoyed a game like that
  run_like_snot: Ooooh piggie got a girlfriend?

Played with measure, a hack'n'slash can be enjoyable and relaxing.
Whisky Aug 21 2012, 01:49 pm EDT
I am shocked they didn't release this as DLC for $$
daver18qc Aug 21 2012, 02:12 pm EDT
and this is different from raising the level cap to 160 how exactly ?

Diablo 3? never played it
Cheddar Aug 21 2012, 03:00 pm EDT
I still haven't played this game. Or Mass Effect 3.
  Dick_Swet: Same on ME3. ME2 even. Am I missing out?
Kurio Aug 21 2012, 09:33 pm EDT
Hahaha, poor players... no wonder the game fell into disuse quite fast.
