Or, more precisely, it’s a game that goes from super easy to very easy to kinda easy to possimbible. And such a slow roller coaster isn’t exactly fun to ride more than once.
Hardcore mode was meant to address that, but even then, what’s the point if I’m not going to die before the end of Nightmare anyway?
So, I decided I was going to Wing It.
On top of the normally daunting Hardcore restriction of having a single, precious life, I’ll be playing through Diablo 3 using skills as they unlock, in the order they unlock. No optimization, no synergy, no boss builds. If level 27 unlocks the three worst skills in the game, I’ll be running with them at level 27. Will this be the death of me? Almost certainly.
Additionally, I’ll be playing as the Witch Doctor, a class I know nothing about. So far, so good, the only thing I’ve learned is that Blizzard likes lazy stereotypes.
Episodes 1 & 2 of Winging It are already done and available for your viewing pleasure. They’re a little long, but to compensate, they’re a lot awesome. Enjoy!
