Finished the story mode and currently running through rifts and greater rifts. Can see me sinking a lot of hours into this game.

The Herding Staff (which has to be constructed, not found) and the access it gives you to the secret area "Whimseyshire" is supposed to be exclusive to the cartridge, but i can't confirm that

It's an Easter egg put in by the developers to mock those fans who claimed early on that Diablo III was too bright and colorful. You can get to it with either the Staff of Herding or by killing a rare Rainbow Goblin.

@RetroGamerAndrew I have just read that many abilities that have multiple projectiles etc. were experiencing the same missing animations or have lowered visual effects. I cant confirm it 100% and Blizzard have not confirmed it but I think this is the case we are having.

If you are having the animation 100% of the shots in normal rift on normal difficulty I think that this is the case we are having and I doubt this will be fixed.

This is probably a side effect of the Switch version using the "Low FX" setting. If you turn on that same setting in the PC version then you'll get similar anomalies.

@Roamer not the biggest issue, just an annoying one. Sometimes I have to stop and double check if monsters are actually dead, because the MS animation isn't playing and I don't know if it's lag (when playing online) or something else. Not deal braking but not nice either in GR (I'm playing softcore: hardcore would be a different story!)
So happy I can play my beloved D3 on Switch, I really can't complain!

The occasional monster standing around after dying happens on the PC version, too. I suspect it's a sync issue with the server. I've never seen it playing offline on the Switch.

@Mountain_Man Yeh it can be. Happens from time to time, honestly I got used to it and it doesn't bother me as much as I'd thought.

BTW I'm working my way to season journey Conquests and looking for a group to split Boss Mode conquest. If any (preferably experienced and decently geared) EU player wants to join please give me a shout here or join me on Adult Switch Gamer's discord: https://discord.gg/RBT4Zm4

The original fire has died and gone, but the riot inside moves on.

This game is brilliant! Just finished act 2. I’m really getting into the groove of the game.

Edit: Was visiting the Diablo III forum on Blizzard’s website for some tips, but damn is that place toxic or what? Especially after the Immortal fiasco. People who are even a tiny bit positive gets downvoted en masse. Sad place.

I just bought the switch to play with my Daughter in Los Vegas online . I normally play PS4 .
This first time playing Diablo 3. Is there a achievement ranking like PS4 ?
Thanks

@infofrog If you choose to play seasonal there's leaderboard rankings.

Got my copy today and I have never ever played a Diablo game before but because I love the old Gauntlet games on NES I couldn't resist the 43€ price point. Love it so far and it really makes one to want to play more. I am playing on Normal and right now I can't believe that people are trying all the higher difficulty levels. My only complain is that the text size is too small on a 22'' when sitting 2 1/2 meters away. Wish you could adjust screen text size

Sit closer to the screen, or get a bigger TV. ¯\__(ツ)__/¯

@Quarth most games forums end up like that. Games developers’ biggest enemy are the fans of their games.

No pasaran.

@Roamer True. I can understand the negative reactions at the Blizzcon presentation, but people are extremely toxic about everything that’s not Diablo or Diablo II. There seems to be hate against console players as well.

The funniest thing about the official forums is that you'll have people hating on the game who continue to actively play with hundreds and even thousands of hours logged.

Yeah, that striked me as odd! Are the hardcore Diablo fans masochists? Now I haven’t played D1 and D2, but I don’t understand what people find wrong with D3. Maybe it’s weaker in some parts, I don’t know, but it’s far from a bad game. It’s a great game!

I’m at the final chapter of the campaign now. The story is somewhat clichéd, but has been engaging so far.

When I’ve finished the campaign, what do you recommend me to do next?

After the campaign it’s time for adventure mode for you my friend...!

Welcome to the world of bounties, rifts, and a gameplay loop you’ll probably initially dismiss as ‘wtf?’ until 4 hours later when you’re comparing armour set bonuses and contemplating aesthetics vs statistics!

In adventure mode you can choose which Act to play in; once picked you’ll notice 5 marks on the area map denoted bounties - clear all 5 and return to Tyrael in the hub area for that act and he will give you shiny shiny rewards (you have to open them). These should very quickly allow you to start turning the difficulty up (which leads to better rewards & thus higher difficulties).

Then there’s the rifts to consider - these are typically the end game dungeons; basic premise is simple, bash monsters until big bad appears, but there’s tweaks, variations and rewards a plenty.

There’s more things even then such as Paragon points to spec your character higher after level 70, Kanai’s cube which helps tailor gear/stat rolls, then the infernal machines/uber bosses etc. I - or someone else - could write pages on this stuff but it’ll overwhelm. Best to start in Adventure mode, do a bounty or two, bash through a rift & then start asking questions/looking up answers from there - good luck!

@BrainOfGrimlock Thanks! Will try Adventure Mode as soon as I’m finished with the campaign.

I've been playing Diablo games since the first was released in 1996, and I think Diablo III is easily the best in the series. I honestly don't know why some people have such a problem with it. Interestingly, we saw a lot of the same blow back from certain Diablo fans when Diablo II was released because, in a lot of ways, Diablo II was so radically different from its predecessor. What's ironic is that Diablo III has far more in common with Diablo II than Diablo II did with the original Diablo.

At any rate, I've been playing Diablo III since it was in beta, logged hundreds of hours on the PC version since release, and I've played close to 60-hours on the Switch. And even after all that time, I still have to watch myself or I'll end up playing just one more rift, or doing just one more bounty run late into the night. It's easily one of my all-time favorite games.

Is there a way to refresh the bounties without leaving the game?

@Mountain_Man Sorry about the late response. I get notifications when someone’s using the reply function, but not when I get quoted. Strange...

Based on your comment, the Diablo fanbase seems a bit divided.

As I said, I haven’t played D2 (would love too though - here’s hoping for a remaster!), but I agree with you about D3. It’s really fun and addictive and I can see myself playing it for a loooong time.
