Story Time with Uncle Wyatt, In Review
Every year at BlizzCon, senior technical game designer Wyatt Cheng likes to take some time to sit down and chat with fellow players about Diablo III as well as game design in general.
Drothvader#1215 was in attendance for this year's discussion and has put together a helpful forum post detailing the resulting conversation, including Wyatt's philosophical responses on things like Set items, Legendary items, unavoidable mechanics, and damage in Greater Rifts (among other topics).
While the recap is in Drothvader's own words, he sums up the talking points quite well. We definitely recommend checking out this thread, whether you're a Diablo enthusiast or just love learning more about game design at Blizzard!
But what about you? What new 6-piece bonus would you add to improve an existing 4-piece Set?
