Paragon System coming to D3 in patch 1.0.4

Post by S7 mrmiller on Mon Aug 20, 2012 3:00 pm

Sounds very cool with the excpetion on the MF cap. Let people sacrafice other stats from MF if we want, don't cap it. Anyhow-


To combat the lull some players have encountered once they have reached level 60 in Diablo 3, Blizzard is adding a new layer of upgrade levels.

This new layer - called the 'Paragon System' - adds 100 additional levels for players to push through once they have reached Diablo 3's current level max. Coming in update 1.0.4, all experience earned after level 60 will be put toward the new Paragon levels. Each new level in Paragon gives players a boost in core stats (dexterity, strength, vitality, and intelligence) in amounts similar to standard levels along with a 3% boot in magic and gold find.

"It can be demoralizing to play for an hour, not get any drops, and also be out a big chunk of gold from repair costs. Your play session may not only end without an upgrade, it can wind up being a net loss," game director Jay Wilson wrote on the official blog post revealing the changes. "We know that a lot of you out there are level 60 - maybe on multiple characters - and this system provides a way to make progress every time you log in to the game."

Under the new system, Nephalem Valor bonuses give players a 15% boost in experience toward Paragon levels per stack. In comparison to Diablo 2, Wilson says that reaching the maximum Paragon level approximates the "long-term investment required to get a level 99 character" in the franchise's previous installment.

Blizzard's goal with Paragon is to have top-tier players slowly "transition away" from their reliance on magic find on items in a way that wouldn't "flip the entire game end-over end." Once 1.0.4 hits, magic find will be capped to 300% before Nephalem Valor, meaning players will hit the cap once they reach Paragon level 100 - which will allow players to slowly remove those items over time.


If I'm reading this right, the new max character level is 160!

That's pretty cool. I wasn't a big fan of the lvl 60 cap.

I've been trying to level my Monk up (level 54 now, act 1 Hell), but don't know if I can go through Hell again. It just takes so long to rush through all 4 acts so I can get to inferno. I have been finding that the AH is crazy right now. Level 60 items either sell for nothing or Millions, while all the level 20-40 stuff I've found this weekend sell better in the 100K ranges. I guess there just is a ton of 60 items, and the is very few of the intermediate level ones that people want to grab to help thier rush.

I think my Barb is level 8 right now, and I found tons of rares, but most all are junk. I haven't found but one (two if you count the hamburger) legendary items in those 8 ranks.

I haven't been finding any Legendaries. I have 10 paragon levels and only 2 legendaires (one was the stinking hamburger) in that time. What is the
"act 3 inferno route" or do you simply mean playing in act 3?

Log out with Q "Kill Azmodan" directly in front of him (Checkpoint). Each run will start directly before Azmodan.

Clear Core of Arreat to the WP
WP to Tower of the Damned lvl 1, do one circle
WP to Arreat Creater lvl 2
Teleport to town, WP to Bridge of Korsaikk, clear Fields of Slaughter
Teleport to town, WP to Keep Depths lvl 1. Immediately enter Keep Depths lvl 2 and clear it.
Teleport to town, Log out, Resume Game

Cool- i will give that run a try. I played some act 3 today and have already found a legendary item. So it seems to be the place to farm.

So I did an act 3 run last night and found another Legendary item. Two runs = Two legendary items. It appears that Act 3 is the place to farm. I die quite a bit with my semi-tank/whirlwind build and may have to tweek it a bit for better survivability, but I'm making it will all of my MF gear besides my shield and gloves, which still keeps me above 200% MF.
