Diablo 3 – /Players ….10!?

SEE IMAGE FOR /PLAYER 6 STEAMROLL (Just died to it, after zoning back in from an afk. OWW – elite and 3 nasty champs) – THANKS GROKK! :p

So, it was a couple D3 patches ago, when they added the equivalent of the old D2, “/players X” command. Usually set to 8, the command made it so you could play a solo game as if it were a large group game. To put it in MMO terms – it would be like running a 5man dungeon, with just 1 char – like a boss.

Anyway…OWWWWW. To get to this feature, first hit Esc, then Options, then Gameplay. In the right “Interface” column, at the bottom, is a checkbox for “Enable Monster Power Selection.” Check that box, Accept/Apply, then at some point you need to get back to your char select screen where you can select “Change Quest.”

Select a quest, then notice below, you have difficulty (ie: normal, nightmare, etc) and a new option: Monster Power!

1-10 it is. Now, since D3 groups only go to 4, I figured I’d start at 10, for the sole reason that the char I was experimenting on was completely nontwinked and sucked ass (my new level 9ish monk), so I figured it would maybe be a challenge.


Power 10, bad. BAD. A pack of 3 or 4 zombies was like fighting champions. I have now dialed in to about 5 or 6, for a weakly geared solo char, and even then the champs/elites feel like undergeared Inferno Act1 all over again. 🙁 …err, :):) In a 🙁 but 🙂 way. Ooof.

    This isn’t Geometry, soldier! Turn up the player volume, and the baddies get louder, got it?!

    Basically He juiced the mobs and got pwned. Glad to hear you were smart enough to try it on a lowbie first!
