Speaking of which, in Europe, the first player to hit level 70 this season has managed it in under 2 hours.

The last time I enjoyed a Blizzard story was the first Starcraft.

I know I ran a bunch of those to get my chars from 60 to 70. Each of those bounties is easily a level by themselves. Misers will actually gave you 45M XP or something without ever touching an enemy. That is, until they instituted full scaling so any char only get his own relative T6 XP level not the full 45M.

And it's not like they skimped on the voice actress, it was just bad direction. I have the same issue in StarCraft II with a lot of Kerrigan's lines - again, this is apparently how Blizzard's directors wanted it because her voice actress isn't talentless, either.

Meadows wrote:Good voice acting makes or breaks immersion in a game. I'm particularly anal about that, despite the fact I do tolerate bad games from time to time.
derFunkenstein wrote:You're either ignoring Meadows' point or missing it or....I don't know, I'm not allowing for any other possibilities. How did you get to play Act V the VERY FIRST time you played it? You had to (at some point, whether 2 years ago or recently) finish Act I - IV. You had to play through the entire story once. New characters, yes, but brand new accounts have to play the story, or had to play the game's story when they were new.
Aphasia wrote:You do however have access to adventure mode if you finished a character to lvl 70 and the Act V with one of your other characters before the season.
