Millions of long-time Blizzard fans have been nonplussed at the mediocre Diablo III for which they waited 12 years. Blizzard has apparently been listening to all the criticism, and plans many large changes for the next patch, and for the years ahead. The latest of these planned changes is the Paragon system.
Basically, it allows you to earn experience towards 100 Paragon levels after you’ve hit the standard level-cap of 60. Each level will give you a permanent 3% boost to Magic Find and Gold Find, meaning 300% to both at Paragon level 100. Plus, Nephalem Valor stacks will now provide 15% experience bonuses towards Paragon levels. Blizzard plans to eventually do away with MF/GF on equipment, stating:
“… help us slowly and gently move Magic Find off of items in the future. It’s such an intrinsically important stat to the core purpose of playing the game that tying it to gear — which is a customization system in many ways — is ultimately an approach that would continue to cause problems. We need to transition away from it…”
The Paragon system may help stir up renewed interest in D3 for many players that, like myself, have gone back to prior games, such as StarCraft II. Combo this with improved Legendary item stats, class tweaks, and upcoming PvP, and the game may soon be worth playing again.
