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.
