Yes it does have rockets. Anything to get Debo playing, dammit. Just nod yes.

YES IT HAS ROCKETS. I'm sure with a bow and the barrage skill and a cheap microtransaction it will look like teh_rockets.

Well, that's a good point. Probably can find some kind of effect to make it look pretty close to a rocket. Haven't tried out the Barrage skill yet so not sure what it looks like. Fireballs might look a bit like rockets

Some AOE + Cast on crit + another AOE is better then any rocket.

Btw I played it for a bit an must say, I expected much better game, based on comments, then it actually is, it looks like just a standard diablo clone. Do it feature some more fun at higher levels ?

In a word, yes. The fights are tougher than any Diablo ever got, and the equipment subgame (support gems vs. item stats) is more sophisticated than any other roguelike. Then there are the endgame maps, which are a stroke of infinitely-replayable genius.

The combat gets more fun as the action speeds up. I thought it was pretty awful until I started attacking and moving much more quickly. Maybe toward the end of the first difficulty did combat start to feel fun, for me.

But, yeah... Diablo 2.5, I suppose. A lot of the fun is learning how the skill tree works in tandem with the myriad gems and items you can realistically expect to get. Perhaps most interesting are the build-enabling uniques you can find, or more than likely, trade for.

I use infernal blow/multistrike/meleesplash/meleedmgonfulllife/fasterattacks/moremeleedamage/blind. Everything explodes in a shower of meat and blood. I'll take that over cast on crit nuclear strikes any day, but to each their own.

While I cant join the Angband guild (Already am the leader of a guild) I can definately map with you fellows. I have a Ice Spear witch that freezelocks anything, whole packs, Dominus, you name it, I can freeze it. My dps isnt amazing, only about 10k or so, but the sheer safety I provide can be very useful in difficult maps.

My username is tramshed and my ice witch is TheBlackGoat, add me if you like. If for some reason im not on as the TheBlackGoat im either running as HAILSATAN or Insulting.

I'll be happy to add you. Not sure how active the Angband guild is atm, most of the time when I am online I am alone. Could just be that I'm in the wrong time zone though.
