*** Although most of the Wizard set dungeons are regarded as difficult even with the right equipment, the most hated is a tossup between the Delsere's Magnum Opus dungeon and Vyr's Amazing Arcana dungeon. Both have very large maps that can only be covered in four and a half minutes with constant Teleport spam, and it's all too easy to lose track of one or more of the ''over 600'' enemies in the Vyr's dungeon.



*** The Firebird's Finery dungeon used to be a source of ire for Wizard players, as one of the objectives was to ignite 20 enemies in 3 seconds six times. Too little damage per second and the dungeon could not be finished in time; too much and the enemies would die before the required three fire skills could be cast on them to ignite them. Patch 2.4.1 changed this objective to igniting or killing 20 enemies in 3 seconds, so that now high damage is an asset instead of a liability.

*** The In Patch 2.4.0, the Wizard was widely viewed as having the game's most difficult collection of Set Dungeons. Raising the time limit from 4:30 to 5 minutes and making all enemies visible on the mini-map from the very start in Patch 2.6.0 made it easier to cover the very large maps and keep track of the many enemies in the Delsere's Magnum Opus and Vyr's Amazing Arcana dungeons, and the former also had the objective of casting Slow Time on 30 or more enemies three times to 20 or more enemies four times in Patch 2.5.0, reducing the enemy density threshold. Meanwhile, the Firebird's Finery dungeon used to be a source of ire for Wizard players, as one of the objectives was initially required players to ignite 20 enemies in 3 seconds six times. Too little damage per second and the dungeon could not be finished in time; too much and the enemies would die before the required three fire skills could be cast on them to ignite them. Patch 2.4.1 changed this objective to igniting or killing ''or killing'' 20 enemies in 3 seconds, so that now high damage is an asset instead of a liability.

** ''Rise of the Necromancer'' has gotten flak due to costing $15 yet not even having any new areas, Acts, or modes to go with the price tag; only a new class, extra stash tabs, and cosmetic options.[[note]]There are Challenge Rifts and a few new Adventure areas, but they are part of the 2.6.0 patch that is applied to everyone who has the game whether they have ''Necromancer'' or not.[[/note]] To compare, the ''Reaper of Souls'' expansion adds a new game mode, a new class, and a new Act for $10. It doesn't help that about a couple months later, [[DuelingWorks competing]] game ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' got an expansion pack of its own, ''The Fall of Oriath'', that adds a slew of new content (most notably, ''six'' new Acts bringing the game up to ten Acts) ''free of charge'', making Blizzard look even worse and stoking the FandomRivalry between the two games' playerbases.

** Amongst Demon Hunters, The Shadow's Mantle set, which gives a twelve-fold damage boost when you equip a melee weapon, gives Shadow Power every rune's effect and makes it last ''forever'', and most of all grants an additional '''40,000%''' multiplier to the first target that the Impale skill's knife hits, easily slicing up bosses into bite-size pieces within seconds and, with the right additional equipment and runes, even large mob groups as well. Hits dealing tens of billions of damage each are not uncommon with this set. Even the Demon Hunter's other [[InfinityPlusOneSword 6-sets]] simply don't compare in terms of damage output. You do lose access to a number of skills that require bows and crossbows if you're making full use of the {{Set Bonus}}es, but who needs them when you're the ultimate KnifeNut?

* FandomRivalry: ''VideoGame/TorchlightII'' and ''Diablo III'' fans were at each other's throats since the moment both games started entering the final steps of development. Runic Games remained, for the most part, silent, but every new Blizzard announcement almost invariably lead to someone mentioning [=TL2=] and triggering a massive FlameWar. Now that both games have been out in the wild for a while, most people on either side will acknowledge the merits of the other, but the two games are just similar yet [[DamnYouMuscleMemory just different]] enough that it's tough to be a fan of both.

** Some animosity developed between ''D3'' fans and ''VideoGame/PathOfExile'' fans around summer of 2017, when ''Diablo III'' got the ''Rise of the Necromancer'' expansion that added only one new class and a few other things for $15, while ''[=PoE=]'' got the ''Fall of Oriath'' expansion that added '''six''' new acts and a bunch of other content, ''for free''.

*** Fire Chains enemies are connected by a fire chain that does nasty damage if you're caught between them. And these enemies often have another quality with them as they only spawn on Nightmare or higher.
