    Free game... looked like Diablo and I liked Diablo so I gave it a shot.
    It is cray cray!
    The gameplay is simple... kind of, but making the character/build is incredibly complex!
    There must be thousands of combinations to build a... my goodness, whatever you could desire.

    Anybody else play this? Have any tips? I am swimming in deep waters, but I kind of like it.

    It's a nice diversion from work sometimes.

    I have friends who play it extensively and have considered trying it myself several times but from what I have been told by many people is that if you do not create the right character build, it makes it impossible to get past certain parts of it.

    Become a Type A personality and problems solved.

    See how easy that is?

    Good grief that's intense! I recognize the health and mana bubbles along with potions, but I'm lost on the rest.

    My God that isn't a skill tree, that's a 400 page encyclopedia.

    Played this for a bit when it was released on Steam and was overwhelmed, played for a couple of weeks and quit. Not my cup of tea but especially for being free it offers an amazing amount of content.

    I did a little reading online about the Tree and some builds and I was able to make an old guy, who looks like he should be in a rocking chair run around shocking things to dust all the way outside the screen. I run around and all I see are corpses.

    Pretty cool... I can still die pretty easily at the tippy top levels so I have more figuring to do.

    The talent tree in that game is insanely large.

    I decided to focus on a theme and started with a witch that could have a posse of zambies (yes, zambies), skeletons and a couple of Golems and a wraith and it was okay.
    Then I went more solo and used an attack that hit multiple peeps at once and raised the crit levels as much as I could.
    There is also a metric-ton of armor and weepins that can do things that exacerbate what you might be aiming for.

    I like this solo dude better, for gameplay, as that minion build was boring and this dude just feels more powerful.
    Now I need to learn how to buff his D to better levels. I can get to the end of the end-game, but if I'm not paying close attention I can die in a blink.

    I'm already thinking of a different build, tbh.
    Something ugly and brutish and tough as nails, but probably slower.

    My character was the dual wielding rogue type, who did a sort of whirlwind attack. But it’s been a while since I played it, since a close friend of mine still gets me to play diablo 3.
