I’ve spent even more time thinking about Diablo 4: what skills should I focus on to improve my character? Is it better to use a different specialization? How much choice is the Paragon board actually giving me?
DIABLO 4 IS A GAME THAT CATERS TO THE MASSES, NOT THE 1%
It’s hard to believe, but the vast majority of people that are playing Diablo 4 haven’t beaten the campaign. There are several reasons for this, actually.
While there were concerns about making Diable an open-world game, those concerns were lifted immediately. It’s an absolute blast to venture off the beaten path and follow the breadcrumbs and markers that appear on your map.
There’s also renown to level up, which is done by discovering the Altars of Lilith in the world (these also increase the power of your characters), completing dungeons, and finding new areas on the map.
LILITH IS THE VILLAIN WE DESERVE
After a rocky development, Blizzard officially announced Diablo 4 in 2019 with the “By Three They Come” cinematic. It made one thing abundantly clear from the start: this would be a darker, bloodier experience than Diablo 3.
These are the major lore characters we encounter in Diablo 4. Blizzard opts for a more subtle approach instead of beating us over the head with them. We spend far more time with characters that live in Sanctuary.
THE CLASSES OF DIABLO 4, FOR THE MOST PART, ALL FEEL PRETTY GREAT
Now, most people aren’t going to care about the story. They’re here to become an unstoppable god and mow-down hordes of enemies at will.
