This is feedback to get a better game, these are some ideas for gameplay.
as a gamer and game designer
I have played All of the diablo series, world of warcraft, ultima online, Dragon age 1,2 3, and alot of RPG.
I have also created boardgame since i was about 8 years and now I am 43, I got a degree in graphics and development and have played games since i was a child and also developing games.
I would like to give some feedback how you might be able to improve Diablo 4
-What if you had a renown for the vendors? to be able to get better gear or to be able to do quests to collect pieces to create unique specific items from specific vendors in the game.
-Blue an white gear is meaning less, you should make so that you are able do discenchant items for spec of a specific trait to be able to change value or reroll a value of a specific trait or maybe even race item value of an item.
-gold could be collected automatic it doesn’t. No point of why it drops on the ground any more.
-gems why does it take up space in the inventory? Just give an item a list of the available gems to slot the item with? Like the collected materials. Transmute or use gems/skulls give this items a more interesting value. Trade for exp gain or maybe resistance or use for potions. These items doesn’t fell interesting after a some time into the game or why not to raise monster lvl for difficulty or improve droprate of specific gear.
-Random places with higher lvl:s for monsters, that are challanging for solo or group. Make these so that you could only make them with a small amount of people.
-Vendors that have interesting gear, that might have even legendary and unique gear but you might need to do a questline to be able to open them.
I would like to see more side quest that opens like the same spark as when you got Arcanes Valor in Diablo 1 or Skeletton king and the Butcher.
Love the story line but i am not sold to seasons, to restart the game every 3-4 months is kind of boring. Let old characters in for the new things after the season or give them a possibility to unlock for cash before if you need the money.
I like the renown, but it could expand even further.
And make respec free more interesting to be able to change builds and make use of gear.
Thank you for the experience, I like that you have an opened world and the leveling system that scales the full map, remind me about Ultima Online that I think still has one of the most interesting ways of leveling, and not to kill their world. Open up for harder monsters that you need to run from at some parts would have been cool
Make the game epic and thank you for the gameplay so far!
