Blizzcon 2011: Blizzard Promises That Diablo III Will Be Really Hard

So the Diablo III beta took place in an early area on Normal difficulty, and a lot of folks complained that it was too easy. Well, duh, of course it’s easy. You, the folks in the beta, are the hardest of the hardcore, and you’re playing on Normal. The folks at Blizzard promised at the Diablo III Blizzcon panel today it won’t be anything like that on the higher difficulties, known as Nightmare, ¬†Hell and Inferno. Inferno, in particular, is intended to be extremely challenging, to the point where any encounter can kill you, although they insisted that it is possible for you to solo it.

And there’s incentive for you to take on the higher difficulties — 70% of items you won’t even be able to find on Normal. So you know you’re going to have to try this stuff out.

I know the they will pull…
EXP 1 will bring you to lvl 70 + new class
EXP 2 will bring you to lvl 80 + new Act
EXP 3 will bring you to lvl 85 + new class
ExP 4 will bring you to lvl 90+ new Act
EXP 5 will bring you to lvl 99

they will do this. There is more money to be made by capping the level at 60 and going up the ladder
