Just finished Entanglement story and.. wow. I feel like the Season 2 of living story is off to a great start, really liking what I'm seeing so far.

Story-wise, this was pretty good IMO. Good in length and the quality of the information it provided was solid as well. Hopefully, the whole Season 2 carries on in this fashion. I also like the way they re-designed achievements related to this and the Journal.

However, there are things I'm not too happy about. The map is good enough in size, but I don't like the jumping puzzle-y nature of it. Also, the Sub Zero Shadow Assassin armor is again a disappointment for Charr players >.<

Barely play my mesmer anymore, yet I still decided to switch the looks around a little. Not the final product but I lack the funds to complete it.

Been browsing through the Wardrobe and this combo (and one similar to it, which will be the final product when I get some spare gold) kind of reminded me of Cloud from FF7, so I just had to spend the transmutation charges :P

I've been convincing myself for the past couple of months how I wouldn't enjoy the grind and how boring of a game it would be, which may have been the case on the vanilla D3. About a month ago I finally gave in and bought the game and so far, it's been a great purchase for me. After the past 3 weeks of playing, Rapr clocks my D3 playtime at 75 hours.

I find that D3 is one of those games that may seem tedious and illogical, as in why would someone want to spend hundreds of hours to see a number go up, from a spectator's point of view but when playing, the game has some sort of charm to it that makes you not think about time spent. That fact alone is great news to me, because in so many games, especially single player ones, I would keep looking at the clock and be like "Oh, I've been only playing for 2 hours? Seems like eternity...", whereas in Diablo it's the other way around and there are very few games about which I could say the same thing.

As for RoS, I consider it a great expansion, or better yet a fix to the flaws vanilla had. Getting rid of AH made it more of a personal experience, getting your gear alone and all that, and Adventure mode fixed the end game, which I assume used to be just farming a campaign area over and over.

Finally, when it comes to comparisons with PoE, I can't help but prefer Diablo. Having played both, D3 has this kind of welcoming feel to it, familiarity, simplicity, whatever you want to call it. PoE, however great it may or may not be (played only for a few hours), it just felt so... alien to me. Not even mentioning the big-ass passive skill tree, which may sound great to a hardcore player, but to a newcomer it's like "what the hell do I do with this"...
