I can't remember from when ROS came out on pc, but how does the transition from tiered difficulties (normal, nightmare, hell, inferno) work? Do you start on whatever quest you were on before? Or do you start at the highest quest you had completed on any difficulty?

You start on whatever quest you were on before, but the old difficulties are gone. In my case I was in Act III on Inferno, so the Campaign automatically loaded me in to Act III when resumed my game. However, all I had to do was prompt the game to select a different quest, and then I was able to immediately jump to Act V.

The monsters now scale with your character in terms of level, and the difficulties now adjust monster health and damage accordingly.

I was bumped down to normal difficulty and can only increase to Hard, All the enemies are still far too easy!


I think I know what's happening here, and hopefully we get this cleared up. So, there are technically two ways to increase the games difficulty settings. One of which can be done while in the game session, but it only allows players to increase the difficulty by one step. So, using this method you can increase the difficulty from Normal to Hard, or Hard to Expert, but not from Normal to Expert.

In order to increase the difficulty by more than one rank you'll need to use the second method, which is to exit to the main menu, and go into the game options and select a higher difficulty. Enter the game again and enjoy the bonus experience and gold!
