I just started playing Diablo 3 for the PS4 and... it's all about the gear. You only have a tiny crate to store extra items. Certainly not the magic box in Gladiator Begins that holds 500 bulky pieces of weapons and armor. In D3, you find gear that works well with your character and your attacks, getting magicians to enchant some of the unwanted stats into more desirable things, inserting different and better gems in any sockets it may have, and doing this all over when you find a better item to fiddle with. As for the combat, it's mostly about leveling-up and selecting a better magical attack to use, and I am playing a barbarian, not a wizard.
