  1. Further more, the suggestions about gems and runes and more words with gems in the combinations/more gems qualities. Why make the system more complicated? What made rune words and gems so great was the simplicity of it all and how easy it was to understand. Now you want to make it bigger and more complicated? Gems were not meant to be as powerful as runes. This is a given. And all of them were useful in their own ways. especially Topaz, Diamond, and Ruby. Rune words only requiring 1 rune? Whats the point in them being rune words at that point? The thing that makes rune words so special is that you have to assemble all of the pieces and you get this amazing piece of gear at the end. You're going to take away the struggle for instant gratification? Or you just can't put the runes in the correct order when there's a website that tells you exactly what every recipe is and the order? Charms with sockets? Why? They don't need sockets. At this point you are over complicating these simple things. Charms are exactly what charms are supposed to be. They do not need sockets. They are CHARMS. NOT gear. Charms are not a socketable thing. It doesn't even make sense logically. How about just improve the quality of the game rather than changing its mechanics. ESPECIALLY it's best attribute, I say again, its ITEM SYSTEM. Don't. Mess with it.
  2. DO NOT MESS WITH THE ITEM SYSTEM OF DIABLO. I like this project, but you people are painting with some very wide colorful brushes just throwing out ideas you think are neat and cool. This game is good because of the way it was designed. Ethreal items ARE good in Diablo. You just have to find the right way to use them. If you never used an ethreal item in D2, then you have no room to speak on it. Literally all seasoned D2 players have used Ethreal items. Ethreal is MEANT to be a negative thing until it is "accidentally" by chance matched with the indestructible property, repair durability property, or used on a mercenary. This is what made Ethreal so unique and such an interesting part of Diablo 2. Start changing things like this and you will ruin what was already GREAT about Diablo. Do NOT add a way to craft class specific items. Crafting was merely a way to bridge the gap between what you had and what you needed. Not a way to make the best items in the game. Crafting does produce some really good things like rings, gloves, boots, amulets, but the reason why Pelts, Barb helms, and other items are SO VALUABLE is because you have to go find them in the world. Being able to Craft them just makes that process easier and less rewarding. Using body parts to craft things? What? Why? So people farm each other over and over again? This idea just sounds very colorful and ridiculous. Great thinking outside the box, but it's just weird and necessary. Be careful making rares better. They should NOT compete with Uniques in most cases. Uniques are SUPPOSED to be better than rares. Rares are where rares are supposed to be. Now, I will say some rare armors and helmets(obviously not circlets or class specific helms) seem to be non existent in terms of usefulness. If we could make rare armors/helmets(not circlets or class specific helms) somehow level with the way boots, gloves, rings, amulets, and belts are useful in endgame gear, I could maybe see an argument for that, but even THAT is a long stretch. I am not trying to bash anyone or hate on peoples ideas here, I just want folks to step back and realize that you are not a game designer and Diablo II was the best hacker slasher ever created based on it's ITEM SYSTEM and play style long before you touched the game. Granted there are some shortcomings in it's design, the item system was NOT one of them. Please have a little respect and don't ruin this game's future with wild redesigning of how it worked before. Shortcomings would include things like: Stash size was ridiculous. The inability to transfer items across characters. Teleport allowing players to run through dungeons at light speed and farm bosses or rush people through the game. The maggot lair map. Act 3's entire map being insane and confusing. Bots. The list could go on. But THESE are the type of things this ENHANCEMENT should aim to fix. Not reworking the design of the game's best attribute, it's item system.
