I only play Hardcore. That’s fun. But I die often and have to make a character.
Every class has a passive skill that activates when you die, to keep you alive
I don’t notice when that happens. Latest class was Demon Hunter.
I think the Demon Hunter passive is called “awareness”.
I didn’t notice it activate so I didn’t notice that I had died, then died a 2nd time and had to make a new character.
This has happened with Wizard, Necromancer, Demon Hunter and Crusader.
I can’t keep looking down & to the left to notice that passive has just activated, because I am fighting, I need to watch the game, and the enemy mobs trying to kill me.
I think, maybe there is maybe a sound when it happens, but there are a lot of sounds going off and it’s hard to notice that sound has played.
There might be a flash of light that happens but there are flashes for many many things happening at the same time and I can’t tell they are anything but what I’m trying to do.
I have made many, MANY characters over the yeas, dying MANY times. It is always because I didn’t notice that passive activate, so I couldn’t wait for the cooldown to occur and then start fighting again.
I need to know when that passive that instantly resurrects me has just occurred.
I can’t look down to the left for even a second, when I’m fighting, so I don’t know that has happened so then I die for real and have to make another character.
I like having to make another character when I die, that makes the game fun.
But it is too hard to notice that the passive that keeps me alive has activated once and I will really die the next time it happens.
What I would notice is ALL action on the screen has stopped and it says "you have died, press ESCAPE or ENTER or whatever key you’d like it to be. And then keep fighting exactly exactly where I was killed. Same fight.
It is too difficult to notice the right sound, or the right effect when my vision constantly moves in milliseconds, and there are many sounds happening.
I would like all action on the screen stop and it tells me I have died and press a button to keep fighting.
