Completed the story on normal. I feel like there should have been another act, or at least a few quests to explain who the end boss was. The music on the credits was REALLY out of place too.

New patch details.



Major Content/Features:

Added support for the Descent: Champions race events and Race Season Five.
Added a new Dexterity support gem – Enhance: This is a world-drop-only gem with three levels that only performs its function at level two and above.
Added a new Strength skill gem – Purity of Fire: Casts an aura that grants fire resistance to you and your allies. Higher levels increase maximum fire resistance.
Added a new Dexterity skill gem – Purity of Ice: Casts an aura that grants cold resistance to you and your allies. Higher levels increase maximum cold resistance.
Added a new Intelligence skill gem – Purity of Lightning: Casts an aura that grants lightning resistance to you and your allies. Higher levels increase maximum lightning resistance.
The new aura gems are available to certain classes from the “Intruders in Black” quest and to other classes from the “A Fixture of Fate” quest (both in normal difficulty).
Added four new Unique items, all of which were designed by supporters.
Added three new cosmetic microtransactions: Golden Spectral Throw, Discipline Force Field Effect and Scion Dance Animation.
Two new Achievements have been added: Capture the Flag and Zombie Horde
A checkbox has been added to allow Guild Chat to be hidden.
New art has been added for Endurance, Power and Frenzy charges.
Eight new vendor recipes have been added in two groups of four, including ones for changing which bandit quest reward you chose.
To change your bandit quest reward, use the book that you receive from the recipe in the appropriate difficulty. If you had Eramir’s reward, you will need a skill point available to change away from it.
When race prizes are awarded in Race Season Five onwards, the remove-only stash tab they go to can be accessed from any non-event league. You cannot access it in the first two weeks of a ladder. This means that your race prizes can be removed from the tab in Domination or Nemesis (but can’t be put back in). When the next four month leagues start, the prizes will not be available in the first two weeks (to keep the early race fair).

The supporters that designed those items paid $1000 each for the privilege.

Also you can buy pets from the cash shop, the most expensive is a scorpion made of lightning which is 1100 points. There are two issues with this; 1. The scorpion is tiny, roughly the same size as the other bugs that wander around the game world. 2. 1100 points cost $120.

I've seen a player who has one, too.

This game is brilliant. Played 5 or so hours over the last two days and I'm loving it.

84% in the latest PCG, they said it was great and very generous with what it offers for free (most of the store stuff seems to be just cosmetic).

I don't think I'm quite ready yet for another dungeon crawler, but they seemed to suggest it's better than Diablo 3.
My face is tired.

6 player co-op? Sold.
Been looking for something to replace Pay Day 2 in my usual gaming group since they broke it with the Deathwish patch.

Started to play this, went for a ranger character, which I've already started to regret now I've met fast enemies who like to mob you, but hey ho. Only level 5, so early days. Played for about an hour, it's good.

You have to edge along a bit with ranged. Especially in one dungeon near the start that has
