I played for about an hour last night. I'm going to stick with it this week, I never put that much time into Diablo III and I wouldn't mind finishing off the main quest.

I'm doing a seasonal Crusader right now.

Argh...just drop the thing already! Love this game. One of my top ten of the past decade, easily.

Looks great! I love the True Detective homage they threw in there.

I play Diablo III and I am on the main quest. I have heard of rifts, arenas, and other sections but I do not what they are? Are they part of the main quest? Excuse my ignorance. An additional separate quest?

I played for hours, the whole time muttering to myself that "I don't get it." The click 'n' slash RPG is just one I cannot get into.

Rifts are part of the "adventure mode" in the menu when you enter the game. Main quest doesn't have rifts.

Never been to the arena so no idea there.

Nice to see Blizzard has really listened to the fans and improved the game so much from its original, sorry state at release. It's great that Adventure Mode offers not only replayability, but the opportunity to add new content like Greyhollow Island without having to wait for a whole expansion to put it out there.

I have no idea if Blizzard is planning another D3 expansion, but it's great to see them continuing to support the game this way.

You need to beat the main quest and you will unlock Adventure Mode. That is when the real game starts. Bounties, rifts, and grifts.

Heavy rumors they are, but that's just it, rumors. I'd be down for another expansion though. Blizzard has openly admitted they can't keep up the ice they have been by adding free content.

Thank you. I will finish the main quest and then you can continue your character with these other modes. It makes sense now.

The end game is a lot of fun, but it's a different kind of fun. If you're primarily interested in story then you're going to get your enjoyment out of the main quest line and acts. If like me you actually enjoy max level play more, and want to progress your character's gear and abilities like I enjoy doing, then you're going to love the end game at max level (70). At level 70 you will begin to earn Paragon points, allowing you to essentially level up endlessly as well as boost certain stats with each Paragon increase (I'm at 441 myself). You'll also have bounties to run (mainly for crafting materials, loot, and Paragon levels), Nephalem Rifts (mainly for Greater Rift keystones, loot, and Paragon levels) and Greater Rifts (mainly for finding and leveling legendary gems, set items, and Paragon levels).

Any legendary items with an orange-text affix (excluding a couple of rare exceptions like Corrupted Ashbringer, can be destroyed Kanai's Cube (with the right accompanying materials) to 'bank' the ability. You can use one weapon, armor, and jewelry ability on each toon. That adds a LOT of flexibility to your builds.

One small word of advice would be to be careful not to destroy any 'Ancient" legendary items, as they only drop at a 10% rate and you may find a use for them on another character at some point.
