Re: Amazon.com's Counterfeit issue

This sort of thing does explain some of thee things I've encountered that baffle me: First example, twice I bought a pair of sewing scissors for my wife, both times they were ripped out of the packaging, once it was rusted, the second time it was just covered in hair.

Re: Diablo III

If there was more of a support type class (heals/buffs) instead of everyone being a glass cannon or super glass cannon later on it might make group play more fulfilling.

Re: Housing discussion from ION

If I paid $200,000 for a house, and then due to changes in the area its assessed at $150,000, I've just lost $50,000. I won't be able to sell my house for what I paid for it to break even, or make a profit. If I wanted to lose money I would rent, not buy a house.

Magic is mana based now, not charge based. You can now toggle your estus flasks to either regen mana, or health. I cant speak for spell damage or ability to cast in combat, but it seem like you have more options for how much casting you can do now.
