It seems to be with hitting a wall when you are on your 85+ level. To upgrade your gear you are forced to insanely trade and grind, the lack of content of the game makes it boring really fast, and the lack of possibility of crafting your own gear is ridiculous.



It's what a hack'n slash game is, grinding and trading insanely.

As for the crafting there's possibility of doing some but the amount of farm/selling stuff/farm.. is absolutely insane to do it and improve the stuff.

I look at streamer like helmann from time to time and the sheer amount of this grinding/trading cycle to do so few craft is just something crazy.. i don't have this amount of time to begin with neither the patience to do it.

I accept it and i play as the casual gamer i am. I won't ever get the best stuff.. like when i was playing Diablo 2.. never had the best runeword or other things like that. But in the end i enjoyed my time.

The thing that make me play less actually have more to do with the fact that most if not all the skill point have to go in survival node in the 60 first level.. the tree give us the freedom to go wherever we want but the game itself make it hard to go for anything else other than life/es/res/armour and i find it kind of boring since the character equipment have to go that way too.

This is an interesting point. I don't know if there are other threads on this subject (I would assume there are, but can't be assed to go look), but I would like to know what GGG thinks of this or intends to do about it (if anything).
I like the game and will keep playing on and off; there still lots for me to do even. However on topic isn't the real question what's being do to attract "NEW" players?

This is absolutely not true. Even HC players do not spend all passives on defense, let alone SC players. :)

That's why i said "most".. as for the "if not all" it depend on players.

I put some point in attack node too like the "+15% atk.speed/+20 dex" or such node for example but i tend to put all the rest in survivability or utilities.

Once you got more high level and that your equipment don't sux you can change back your skill tree for something more offensive but in the end when you lvl up a character the most important is survivability.

And that's what's boring in the end.

In Diablo 2 which will stay my reference for a long time, the skill tree had not much defensive abilities. One or two per class at most which were usable and all the rest was going in offensive, it was more fun.

Made me reinstall Diablo 2.
