Yea there seems to be a couple of holdover things like this. Seemed like they designed it to require that scroll and then said screw up and gave everyone the abiility. Same with town teleport. I still remember over a decade later always needing to manage my inventory. Now I just port back to town at whim.

If I recall correctly ID was actually not in for a while, possibly even as late when I started beta, but I can't remember for sure.  But they got a lot of feedback that people liked that "unwrapping" feeling.  So, they settled on the current ID model, where you get that feeling, but you don't need to buy scrolls and waste inv. on them, and you don't need to identify every standard blue that drops on the group.

Frankly, this is the least of my worries about the game.  If the 2 seconds per yellow you get is causing you to not like the game, your dislike probably goes a lot deeper.

Aside from your stash...do you ever get more inventory space that you carry on your person?  The waypoints are pretty well spaced, but I occasionally find it annoying that I have to go back to town to sell off stuff so often.

No. Stop picking up white/grey stuff.

I only pick up blues and still run out of space. Trips to the shops are part and parcel to Diablo though

Yep, that's kinda what I started doing.  No biggie.

It was just a question... I do not dislike the game overall. Just was wondering.

I want my money back!

Really don't care either way. Just an observation. Like with town teleporting to sell. They both make the game easier than I remember, but they also take some of the suck out of what made the last version more challenging (not "harder", just slightly more of a pita).

Town teleporting to sell is definitely nothing new. You just don't have to carry scrolls of town portal anymore, that's the only difference.

Re: Boss loot drops - is it only the first time you kill a Boss when you would get your definite (I use the term loosely) rares, and each subsequent kill, no matter what difficulty, is just considered random?

I was trying to find it today, but I thought I had read somewhere that if the more elites and rare mobs you killed before a Boss the greater chance it dropped better loot, but of course I can't.

edit - Ok, I just read about the Nephalem Valor system - that's what I was thinking of. Didn't realize it was 60 only.

Yeah, my guess is that Nephalem Valor extended to like 30+, would probably solve a lot of issues.

I don't see anything in key-bind, but sure would be nice to have a boss kit and an overland kit - what with having not only to select abilities but also runes... for each and every skill.

#1 feature request. Would just make this game fantastically more enjoyable. Of course they would also have to change how Nephalem Valor works.

My question:

Shields: totally useless in Inferno? Early on they seemed like the way to go for survivability, but a 20% chance to block 1000 damage? Maybe if this was applied after reduction, I could see it being moderately useful.

They also offer a not-insignificant increase to your armor, which reduces damage from all sources.

Hmmm that's true. And it seems like there are some higher-end shields that get closer to 2k+ block amounts. Will have to try it out at some point, I guess.

Why are jewelry pieces so much more expensive than armor? I was able to buy an entire set of decent armor + weapon for around 100k at level 35, and a ring or amulet with stats that are kinda-sorta-pretty-good costs like 50-80k each. Are good jewelry drops really that rare? Are the prices just inflated? Am I just bad at searching the AH?

It is applied after reduction. (In my experience)

Why are jewelry pieces so much more expensive than armor? I was able to buy an entire set of decent armor + weapon for around 100k at level 35, and a ring or amulet with stats that are kinda-sorta-pretty-good costs like 50-80k each.

Anecdotally, I would say jewelry is rarer than other items. It also has to do with the paper doll. Running butcher I find usually 12-15 rares a run. Seeing a ring or amulet seems like a once in 2-3 runs event though. It also comes down to the fact that while I am getting 4-6 or so weapons per run a person only needs one. But the one ring I find in three runs is trying to fill TWO ring slots on each character. Supply and demand yo. And yes, as you mentioned on a weapon all you care about is one stat, how high is the DPS. On an amulet you care about the Dex, Vit, Resist, Magic Find, Crit Damage, Life on Hit, etc...
