Being ill does have some advantages.

Really enjoying Diablo 3, when the servers are up, playing 4 characters. Have a monk as main just finishing Nightmare around level 48. 2nd is one I'm playing with a group of friends co-op when we are all online, close to finishing Act 3 on Normal using a Barbarian lvl 30 or so atm there.

Had to have a Hardcore character, but very tough and haven't invested much time, Witch Doctor nearing end of Act 1.

Final character is a newer Wizard that I am gathering achievements with and as another item mule.

Starting to play around with Auction house and earning some decent in game cash from crafted item sales as well. All in all very enjoyable.
