hahaha, for a moment you had me there... 4 hours on elite, good one
seriously tho, how the f* do you even move? My loot isn't even close enough to compensate for the truckloads of pots I need for my Berserker, and that's at lvl4!
When you first start and aren't familiar with the classes, it might take you seven or eight hours to do the first act on elite. When you know where to put your points, tho, you can generally compensate for lack of good gear. Basically, with embermage, if you sink EVERYthing into focus, find yourself a decent staff or wand (unique staves and wands aren't that hard to find) and pump everything into magma spear (and manage to stay as far away from stuff as possible and take your time) you can clear the game on veteran in about 4 hours...less, if you avoid picking up anything below rares. Elite might take a bit longer and you're going to die...a LOT..when you fight bosses. I solo'd my embermage on elite in four and a half hours. I was lvl 21 when facing the act 1 boss.
Most peoples mileage will vary, however. This game has incredible replay play value though, which is the key factor. It's not necessarily about how long it takes to finish, it's more about 'will I want to keep playing this when i'm done'. I'm addicted to it, personally. This is probably the most fun i've ever had playing an action/rpg...and I loved Diablo II, Titan quest and Torchlight.
