It has been a few days since the diablo 3 console version put on sale. Many players had finished their first experience with friends after taking console version home. Let's share some play experience here based on real battles.
Helmet. The cdkey is rewarded with a wonderful helmet that can add 25% experience. In general, you can keep it until level 60 or for paragon level, instead of throwing or decomposing.
Weapon shelf. If you encounter weapon shelves, make sure to hit them all. There are big chances to pick up wonderful weapon. Don't miss.
Crafting. It's not worthwhile to craft at early game time. The cost is high and the improvement is non-ideal. Only when you feel the dps has a need can you craft equipment.
Gems. The gem system may not as good as you imagine. It depends on your luck to pick up powerful gems at first.
Legendary items. Though there are better legendary items to change, do not decompose in case the following drop is worse. Smart drop system will ensure the drops better than what you already have. Sum up the experience of those who got wrong here, you'd better keep one that has nicer properties than the equipted as reference of the next drop. In this way you can get real item status improve.
Item status improvement. As mentioned above, smart drop system will drop better items before. Item status in diablo3 console version improves on the basis of properties of items you have. For example, you got a pair of legendary shoes at level 10 and put it in stock, when you reach level 55, you get a drop with the same name but has wonderful properties.
More console version information is coming. Keep tuned. Welcome to share your experience with us.
