    where would one start to learn all the curves of the game
    By playing it. Sure, it does seem overwhelming, but once you get into it, the basics start becoming clearer, and what you are trying to achieve also follows suit.

    It's fairly straight forward unless you want to try an exotic build, as for respecing(via orbs of regret) it's way to early to say it's to expencive...the game economy is limited atm with it being a closed beta...once it go's OB prices will fall eventually, not even mentioning what they may put in the cash shop.
    Even if you do fuck up you have 23 char slots and a shared stash to make leveling a new char even easier.

    And you can always just go to the forums and pick one of the builds featured there. Some are really detailed.

    What's the worst that can happen to you ...

    As an extension to this, I'd recommend looking up some of the popular / successful builds and thoroughly analyze it on the online skillbuilder. Go through all of the points picked and try figuring out the reasoning behind picking the points they did and try to apply that logic to your own builds in the future.

    If that seems like too much work (I would understand if it does, it's just the way I work. :P) you should be alright if you just read what each point does and apply logic or common sense when picking (stuff like not picking spelldamage nodes, when going for melee attacks, etc).

    Got my ranger @ 23 atm, highest i ever got in HC mode lol.

    Can't believe Simon died twice in this race. He's on his 3rd character now and still shooting for top 10.

    If anyone comes across a key or two I have some friends who'd love to play, but they're so skeptical about buying into anything it seems.

    Most of those are geared to being powerful at higher difficulties while sacrificing power in the first stages of the game.

    For a first run through I'd suggest ignoring that and going with a build that's more powerful earlier on. It's better to get a feel for the game first before starting powerbuilding characters.

    But first stages of the game are pretty easy. So unless you are going for a HC/race char it's w/e imho.

    It's kind of not an issue. The game is fairly easy in the first 2 difficulty modes, requiring no special strategy. Currently difficulty ramps up around Ruthless act 1- which would be Cruel act 3 in OBT.

    There is more value in understanding how to efficiently travel the skill tree and run zones than building an uber powerful level 12 character.

    Hm, I really need to get a new mouse so I can start playing again. Got into the closed beta but my mouse died shortly afterwords, and playing it with a trackpad isn't the most enjoyable experience.

    I'm getting the feeling there may not be enough server capacity at launch with so much positive exposure in the last few weeks....

    It is a great game. First of games that I actually wanted to fund, but the payment options weren't for me. It captures the spirit of classic Diablo II ARPG without falling for the real money AH crap. The moneytrap.

    Thing is, Paypal is a no go for me since they locked my account for no reason and now want to know literally everything about me before they unlock it again, so I won't. I've called them and mailed them, but they simply don't respond, so there's simply no other way than ignoring them and considering it a lost case.

    A credit card is actually not a common good in the Netherlands, so we don't automatically have one and it needs to be formally requested. I actually requested one, but it's taking ages, so thusfar, I haven't been able to commit myself at all. The devs commented on allowing IDEAL at some point, but that point apparently hasn't come yet and that is going to cost them money
