Since 'majestic' meme used to imply pejorative connotations, I don't know what to make out of the thread topic. Help me out.

It's a F2P online-only Diablo-clone, so I consider the topic title to be ironic.

In before Auction House.

It's quite cool, but also looks kind of grindy to recraft maps to get the mods you want. Also, different only in the concept of activation from standard MMORPG instanced dungeons, this isn't especially innovative. Combat, even at the end game, still looks sluggish, and the HP-bloat is horrible. Still over-all, it looks pretty good, and HP-bloat is stuff that can be fixed.

Any bro wants a beta-key? I got one I don't need.

also looks kind of grindy

You realize it's a diablo-clone, right?

standard MMORPG instanced dungeons

You can modify and alter instances in MMORPG dungeons and find instance-drops?

sure I know it is a diablo (2) clone, it isn't exactly difficult to see, but diablo hasn't traditionally been about craft grinding though, that is: Until diablo 3, although it is useless and thus isn't used. And the modification of dungeon instances is another difference which I did not explicitly consider in my post, true, but nothing jaw dropping.

Wow, that's some pretty good ideas. Hopefully, it's not exclusively end game stuff.

Are there any good recent ARPGs that have Diablo1-style or Nox-style combat? Diablo2-style is so overdone at this point that I can't find any myself having any enthusiasm for it for at least a few more years.

soon = end of august

Yeah I couldn't wait any longer.

$10 to play the best Diablo clone since...Diablo sure beats paying $60 for pure fail.

just picked this up because apparently the beta is fairly lengthy (unlike d3 beta). and I got sick of d3 after they ruined it. was decent at release, now just meh.
