Did anyone ever get into Diablo 3? 

What professions in the game did you like the most?

I've had it since day 1 of launch. the terrible. terrible. terrible launch.

I stopped playing for a long time when the auction house and loot grind were becoming to much. Was playing with my brother, and while we beat it on normal and hard... he was having a hard time during hard because he wasn't playing with the auction house and his equipment was lacking. I was doing my best to keep up with new gear, but it took too much time.

Came back for Reaper of Souls when a friend told me they had fixed a lot of it, and stayed for the Necromancer. Now I at least try to get the basic season requirements done every season since I have picked it back up.

If I had to choose my favorite profession... they would likely be Demon Hunter, Wizard and Nercomancer in no particular order... but having played with them all, I can say there are builds I like for all the classes... Which is probably why it has me coming back so often if the season has a good armor set that I don't have for another class.

I've not played in a while, myself, but I have it on both PS4 and XB1.  Never played it on PC.  The console versions were both Ultimate Evil Edition with Reaper of Souls, and I bought the Necromancer DLC for both as well.  Demon Hunter and Necromancer are my two favorites, but like Matt said, there's plenty of good builds out there for all the classes.  One of these days, I'll get it all together for a Crusader and go all Captain America shield-slinging all over the place -- have most of that build on XB1, but need to get it going on PS4.

I've not done seasons yet, even though they're available, but a lot of that has been because there's been so much demand on my time, whether with RL or with other games.  But D3 / Skyrim / Fallout 4 are all games that I want to get back into.  Destiny 2 Is still eating up some of my time, at least.

The seasons have only one big benefit: Armor Sets (though some have pets and/or wings)

You're guaranteed one per season ( per account sadly), but now you do have to grind to lvl 70 before you can get any of the gear. ( before you could get them early... but they would drop at lower levels... And unlike Destiny 2, there is no way to lvl up gear you like).

Some people really like the armor sets, some say they "ruin" the game as they can be pretty overpowered. I basically power through the lvls to 70 ( their bounty system is actually really easy to lvl with), get the armor set and maybe do the set dungeon if I can... but that is it. There are layers upon layers of bounties and rewards... but most of them are portrait pics. By getting the set you will also earn whatever the extra bonuses are, like the pets or wings.

And how fast you lvl is all based on knowing if you can take on the next lvl of difficulty. I can usually get one done in 2-3 evenings if I really push and/or have a buddy.

*edit*

But you know, now that I say that out loud... There isn't much reason to be farming them when they isn't likely going to be anymore DLC... And D3 doesn't have "raids" or the like.

So if I make a seasoned character, I get (green legendary armor and weapons) automatically after beating the story? 

And when does a seasoned character become a normal character? or are they just permanently online?

The set armor is only available in Adventure Mode and not through the campaign. And not all sets have weapons ( but usually have a legendary or two that can assist nicely)

You have to finish 4 chapters of set objectives. Some are killing things on certain difficulties, others involve doing stuff with the 3 main merchants etc... And getting to level 70 is only a chapter 2 objective.

You will get pieces of gear from completing chapters 2, 3 and 4. Enough gear so that after chapter 2, you can use the first set ability; after chapter 3 you unlock the second, and after 4 you have the full set.

You can still get random set gear like normal randomly, but requires higher difficulties to get higher chances of drops. (The guaranteed set parts can be outclassed by ones you find.) The nice thing is that once you complete a set, the final bonus is usually SO good that you can jump up a few difficulty levels with little problems... or simply WRECK everything on lowers.

Once the season is done, your seasonal character just becomes a normal character, and your loot and Paragon exp will combine with your other characters.

Newest season starts Jan 18th. Seasons last just over 3 months.

I recently got a copy for the Nintendo Switch.  Gameplay is smooth, but everything else is.......meh.  Can tell Blizzard didn't put much thought into it aside from the mechanics.

Haha, yeah. It's really basic. Not surprising for a game that was originally released in 2012. Just be thankful the Switch version is the newest version... The original was even worse.

They will really need to step up their game ( HA! Literally) for Diablo 4.
