Gameplay[ edit ] Diablo III's inventory and HUD retain a feel similar to that found in earlier games in the series, including a viewpoint reminiscent of the isometric view of Diablo III's predecessors.
The inventory has sixty slots for items. Armor and weaponry each occupy two slots and all other items each occupy one slot. Much like in Diablo and Diablo IIthe quality and attributes of equipment are randomized.
In addition to base stats such as damage and attack speed for weapon or armor points on armorhigher-quality items have additional properties, such as extra damage, attribute bonusesbonuses to critical hit chance or sockets which allow items to be upgraded and customized by adding gems for various stat bonuses.
Magic-quality items have 1 to 3 random properties, rare-quality items have 4 to 6 random properties and legendary-quality items typically have 6 to 8 properties with varying degrees of randomness for example, the Mempo of Twilight, a legendary helm, always has a socket, bonuses to elemental resistance, attack speed and life, a bonus to either Intelligence, Dexterity or Strength, and one additional random property, however the magnitude of these bonuses varies from item to itemand set items are a subtype of legendary items which provide additional, cumulative bonuses if multiple items from the same set are simultaneously equipped.
Higher level monsters tend to drop higher level items, which tend to have higher base stats and bonuses.
The developers sought to make the game run on a wide range of systems without requiring DirectX One of the new features intended to speed gameplay is that health orbs drop from enemies, replacing the need to have a potion bar, which itself is replaced by a skill bar that allows a player to assign quick bar buttons to skills and spells; previously, players could only assign two skills one for each mouse button and had to swap skills with the keyboard or mousewheel.
Players can still assign specific attacks to mouse buttons. Unlike the socketable runes in Diablo II, skill runes are not items but instead provide options for enhancing skills, often completely changing the gameplay of each skill.
Hardcore characters are separately ranked, and they can only form teams with other hardcore characters. After dying, the ghost of a hardcore character can still chat. Their name still shows up in rankings, but the character cannot return to the game. If the hardcore character reached level 10 before dying, it can be placed in the Hall of Fallen Heroes.
Two types of artisans can be introduced by completing a quest for each: The Reaper of Souls expansion introduced the Mystic artisan, who can replace individual item enchantments and change the physical appearance of items.
Artisans create items using materials the player can gather by scrapping acquired items and reducing them to their component parts. These materials are used to create items which will have random bonuses.
Unlike Diablo II, rare and magic items can be enhanced, not just basic weaponry and armor. Crafting can also be used to train and improve the skills of the artisans rather than create new items.
When artisans gain new levels, their shop reflects their higher skill level. The process of salvaging items into materials also makes inventory management easier. Blizzard stated that this crafting system was designed so that it would not slow down the pace of the game.
There are three followers in Diablo III: Kormac the Templar, Lyndon the Scoundrel and Eirena the Enchantress, who each possess their own skills and background.
Only one follower accompanies the player at a time, creating a gameplay strategy decision. Originally, followers were only going to appear in Normal mode; however, Jay Wilson stated at BlizzCon that followers would continue to be usable in later difficulty levels.
Auction house[ edit ] On August 1,it was reported that Diablo III would feature two types of auction houses; one where players spend in-game gold and another where players could buy or sell virtual items for real-world money.
Aside from certain bound on account items, such as the Staff of Herding needed to access the Whimsyshire easter eggBlizzard stated there would be very few items that would be bound to a particular character and therefore un-tradable. There was an additional 15 percent "cashing-out" fee from proceeds gained selling items in the real-money auction house.
If they used the global play function to play in a different region, they would not be able to access the real-money auction house. In Marchformer Diablo III game director Jay Wilson stated that he felt the existence of the auction houses "really hurt" the game. But the problem is "not as easy as that.
Players had until June 24, to claim gold and items from the completed tab on the auction house interface. The Brawling system provides a simple free for all area where between two and four characters can fight and defeat each other as long as they like, but without any scores or damage being tracked.
