Since the launch of Diablo III on May 15th, there have been millions of players battling the legions of Hell in Sanctuary. Becoming the fastest selling game in PC gaming’s long history, Diablo III offers some fairly robust features when talking about character customization and ways to play the game. Blizzard has recently shared some of these interesting statisitics for Diablo III players that shine some light on player choice, tendencies, and committment to leveling their characters for the dungeon crawler.
Since Diablo III’s release:
- On average players have created 3 characters each
- 80% of characters are between levels 1 and 30
- 1.9% of characters have unlocked Inferno difficulty
- 54% of Hardcore players chose a female character
- The majority of Hardcore deaths (35%) occur in Act I Normal
- The most common level 60 build in the game is only used by 0.7% of level 60 characters of that class (not including Passive diversity)
- The most used runes for each class at level 60 are Barbarian: Best Served Cold, Demon Hunter: Lingering Fog, Wizard: Mirror Skin, Monk: Peaceful Repose, Witch Doctor: Numbing Dart
Blizzard recently explained their plans for patches in Diablo III on a recent post on the Diablo III Blog.
