Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

May 15, 2012 -

How long does it take to complete the single player campaign in Diablo III on Normal difficulty? I have no idea, but it took Level 32 Barbarian Yoshichan 12 hours and 29 minutes to beat Blizzard's freshly released game. This NeoGAF post (thanks Eurogamer) shows off a final shot of the Barbarian character's stats.

Yoshichan (also his username on NeoGAF) explains how he accomplished this feat in such a short amount of time: "Frenzy baba with lots and lots of mobility and defensive skills - 415 dps unbuffed, ~700 dps buffed."

So where does he go from here? The next difficulty level, of course (did you think he was going to quit playing Diablo III?): "All right guys, wish me all good luck in nightmare!" he posted. "Going for it asap. It's actually starting to get warm in the bunker now that I think about it."

While we can't prove it (only Blizzard can), we believe he is the first person in the world to finish the game. He probably deserves to be in the next edition of the Guinness Book of World Records.

Countdown to "Someone has already made an 'offline' crack/patch"...

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

Wonder if he got his money's worth for a whopping 12 hours of fun?

Guess so - to each their own. Personally, I can soak a single game for 12 months, lol.

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

Let's see.

Diablo 3:

$60 / 12 hours = $5 per hour of fun

Avengers:

$10 / 2 hours = $5 per hour of fun

I think he got his money's worth if you go by money spent per hour.

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

Got to agree with you there, I like to soak up the ambience and enjoy the experience, rather than treat it as though it were some kind of race.

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

I'm with you on this one, I like to make my games last as long as possible, especially since I'm married now, have a kid on the way, and am working on very limited funds with which to keep buying games. I've managed to make Arkham City last me 2 months, and that game isn't very long at all.

But stories like this remind me that some people just have drastically different play styles. I can't imagine waiting 12 years for a game only to finish it the same day I bought it, but in this guy's case he probably set out with that exact goal in mind. Now he has something to brag about smiley

What's a frenzy baba when its at home?

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

I've heard that some players in Asia had it beaten in under six hours, but haven't been able to find any proof of it.

Re: Someone Has Already Beaten Diablo III

They probably meant that six hours was the longest any of them could stay connected before the servers broke down.

The problem with the servers was more logging in than the game itself going down.

 

Anyway, it's not a huge feat considering the huge head start a large portion of the world had.
