PC Gamer - Some mechanics were excised entirely. “We fooled around with, and even announced, the talisman. What that led to was players getting a new item and sitting around, trying to figure out what they should be doing.” The result is a stats screen that spits out big, easy to understand numbers. Attack, precision, defence and vitality combine to make your character’s power output obvious. Press a gleaming blue doublehanded war-axe into your barbarian’s hands, and the extra damage it deals is easily demonstrated by the game’s UI.
