Diablo 3: "The point of the game is efficiency"

Every now and then the blue posts get it right.  It is a wonderful, magical thing when they do.

Shithead:  Don't force people to be efficient if they don't want to be.
Bashiok:  The point of the game is efficiency... Killing monsters as quickly as possible to maximize your time to find the drops you want. That is the game. I think you should do whatever you think is fun, absolutely, but if you want to go at a slower pace, not really worry much about maximizing efficiency, and just kind of take it at your own speed you're going to have a pretty rough time in Nightmare let alone Inferno. Hopefully as the game progresses and difficulty ramps up you're naturally being encouraged to tighten up your build and scrutinize your gear more and more.

In any case though, as I detailed the enrage timers aren't "I Win" buttons for the bosses, so a more defensive build should still be able to progress if they're geared and being played well.

With the Nephalem Valor buff the best loot is off champions, rares, and (assuming the buff is up) bosses. As I said the point is ensuring "legitimate" progression. But if someone wants to farm rares and champions in the beginning of Act I because they can't beat the Skeleton King, they should absolutely do that. And actually, everyone should be expecting to do exactly that when they reach Inferno.


Moron:  You can very often achieve the same goal without the metagamey "I Win" button.
Bashiok:  They aren't "I Win" buttons.

Fuckhead:  what exactly does the enrage timer hope to accomplish other than becoming an artificial barrier of progress?
Bashiok:  Nope! You nailed it, that's the intent of an enrage timer.

I like how you throw in "artificial" as a negative. It's a video game. It's all designed and artificial. If there's a "natural" or "organic" way to stymie someone's attempt to cheese their way through a boss kill I'd be happy to hear it.


Illiterate Republican:  Gotta farm up that tier gear before you progress! Hello boring MMO structure.

Bashiok:  Not a big Diablo fan, huh?

That shit is better than sex.
