Reaper of Souls Expansion -- 30 bullet points
posted on d3 blizzard forums (by sharkweed) -- http://us.battle.net...pic/10660725988

1) As you already know, your old gear will be worthless ... 2900 DPS weapons drop from trash mobs. There were videos of level 50 characters wielding these weapons.

2) Maquise Gems drop relatively easily and are the standard for level 70, so don't spend you money crafting.

3) Gold is still valuable as cost of crafting, unsocketing gems, etc is still pretty pricey

4) Brimstone will not be used by any of new crafting recipes so don't bother farming/buying them

5) Gold is relatively easy to obtain as bounties and whatnot give you good amounts

6) Your paragon levels are not 1:1 it is based off of total XP. So if your characters combined have around 250 total, you will only get about 138 Paragon Points to spend. Paragon points are divided evenly among the four Paragon Areas

7) Current crafting mats are almost worthless new crafting mats for everything

8) You can resent Paragon Point allocation anytime with a simple click of a button. This makes for very Dynamic Playstyles depending on what your'e doing (speedruns, levelling, etc)

9) Maximum Crit chances boost from Para Points is 10%

10) Max Crit Damage boost from PP is 50%

11) Max Attack Speed boost from PP is 10%

12) Max Cooldown Reduction boost from PP is 10%

13) Each Paragon Point is worth 5 Stat points with no maximum

14) Max % Life boost is 25%

15) Max Armor boost is 25%

16) Max Dodge Chance boost is 10%

17) Max AR Boost is 250

18) Max MF boost is 100%

19) Max Movement Speed boost is 25%

20) Max Gold Pickup Radius boost is 25

21) Regarding Enchanting, just watch the official Blizz Video regarding Enchanting. It would take too long to type it out. Basically you can only replace one stat on one item and once you replace it you can't go back; however, you can change the same property over and over again, you just can't touch the other ones.

22) Regarding Transmogrification, again just watch the official Blizz Video regrading it. Pretty self-explanatory. Once you find items it automatically goes into your bank and you can choose from it. You don't have to actively have it in your inventory.

23) Regarding Difficulty It goes Normal, Hard, Expert, Master, Torment As baseline, Master is around MP8-9, Torment is MP10. In Torment, you can choose between Torment 1 to Torment 6 to make it even more difficult.

24) In Torment here is the list of goodies you would be getting:

* 300% gold/xp
* Double bounty awards
* Better Legendary Recipes
* Better Legendary Items
* 250% Leg drop rate
* Additional gold/xp/leg drop rate per Torment level

25) Monsters scale according to your level not the Act Level

26) New Toughness stat is the *total amount of raw damage you can take* and it is based on *Max Life, Armor, Dodge Chance, Avg Resist, and Damage Reduction*

27) New stat called Crushing Blow Chance that can be increased by skills and items, deals 25% of monster's current HP as bonus damage, half as effective against elites

28) Blood Shards are a new form of currency. You get them from Adventure Mode and they are used for a gambling system. Think of the gambling system in previous Diablo games.

29) A level 50 Legendary ring I saw adds +281 Str with a 4% IAS boost.

30) Travelling between acts in Adventure mode is very easy and streamlined. Cheers Blizz
