I don't know, I'd describe my wife and I as advanced players... we play pretty much exclusively on the hardest difficulty level... and it's getting to the point where it's too easy. We have all 6 classes at the top level of power, and have kitted out most of them with cool gear. We may not be hitting the highest levels in the greater rifts and we prefer our own interesting builds than the ones all the power munchkins flock to. I'm personally glad they moved away from the way things worked in D2. I think my wife would have liked it less having to make choices about her character while she was learning how to play it that could turn out to be a mistake later. The fact that you can just swap out all your choices at any time and try something new allows her to feel free to experiment instead of fretting about the permanent repercussions of her choices. That may be the greatest strength of the game in my book, even though it's the thing I've heard D2 players complain about the most.
