    So, I ended up getting Diablo 3 on Saturday and just got to Act II with my Level 15 Barbarian. I am really enjoying the game, find myself a little addicted too. I haven't played much of Diablo 1 or 2 but I really like this game. How's everyone else enjoying it?

    I'm lovin' it :)

    A level 23 wizard, currently in Act 2 (not sure how far into act 2 i am - even though I got the guide :) ).

    Reminds me of my youth, playing D1 and D2 and can't wait to play Nightmare mode.

    However hated Sunday with the "issues" with the EU servers, funny how it didn't affect the US servers.

    Yeah, didn't realise that until the evening, only got to play 1/2 hour.

    Now level 25 at the end of Act two (finding the Boss hard to beat, will have to re-gig my armour, magic, etc...)

    Barring the disaster of a launch week, I've really enjoyed it. Took Tuesday off to play with a mate, and we've been co-oping on and off the whole week. Currently level 44 (Maybe 45 actually) Monk, just completed act 2 in Nightmare.

    Started playing the other day, but my on-board GFX was not good enough; HD 4200. Stupid thing is, I sold my 5770 the other day and that would of played it fine! So I have brought a 6670 for £43.99 and it should be here today!

    I will be playing as the Monk I think, looks good :)

    Have now finished "normal" mode with my Wizard - level 31 and just started nightmare.

    I have to say that based on my character at the time, the end bosses at the end of act 1, 3 and 4 (Diablo and his shadow) were easy-ish. However the end boss at the end of Act 2, so far has been the hardest (died 4 or 5 times, Modey helped me out thought in the end - thanks).

    Well, now going to see how hard the monsters are here - so far the zombies are already alot harder to kill...

    I've got to 54, on nightmare at the moment. some of the Champions are crazy. In nightmare, they have 2 abilities, in hell they have three! It's mental, some of them are easy, but there are some crazy hard combinations.

    Once you get past normal, the best loot is found on the champions, rather than the bosses. In fact the bosses seem far easier than some of the champions.

    Got to level 17 on Monk on Normal mode after a few hours of playing. It seems far too repetitive too me. I have already wasted enough hours with RuneScape many moons ago. I wish I didn't buy it now, nor upgrade my GFX card - C'est la vie!

    I heard they were doing a 30-day refund on Digital Purchases, anybody heard this?

    Really enjoying D3 so far. Started off with a monk who started to get his ass kicked in Nightmare, so I decided to start again with a Barbarian which I am enjoying more and am now into act 2 Nightmare.

    My main tip is use the auction house to buy your gear as you can get some insanely good gear sometimes for almost nothing. Don't bother with jewel crafting at all as it's more expensive to craft them together than is is to buy much much better ones from the AH.

    I just got to Act 3 with a barbarian... I like that class the most... I did find that Belial was an easy fight, beat him first shot...
