Classic tal rasha + hydra item builds, the required are required
I'm actually trying the Steady Strikers (wrist) with arcane power for hydras (read below); that's 2 are rAccomended but if u have 1 wrist with good stats, just use it.
focus and restraint: we all know they rock.
pauldrons of the skeleton king: it will save a lot your butt
In all equip u should roll 15% hydra damage and 15% metheor damage (where goes one the other there isn't)
Hallo guys this is my new build for wizard that succesfully work since I tested and i'm still testing it.
Why require good skill level?
You need experience with wizard and really a safe and good playstyle. Everything kill u, a skeleton arcer deal u more then half life with an arrow, so u must really be careful to your character; u you have to keep your eyes glued to the character and on stacks; with this build u must have 4 stacks of tal rasha active and cast Hydra with 5 stacks of Arcane Dynamo so need a lot of practice and at the start It's a lot of difficult to do this and to dodge everything is trying to killing you; for the rest is really fun to play and when u know how to play it u will deal TONS OF DAMAGE !!!
Caldeum Nobility Cosplay
Liz, a cosplayer from the United Kingdom aka kyos-girl, has uploaded a photo of a very interesting cosplay - a noble from Caldeum. Amazing fidelity and attention to detail. See it below.
Every now the same old discussion resurfaces: what are the biggest problems with Diablo 3 right now? It gains strenght usually between big content patches, precisely when the devs are working on the next big thing. And while every time it comes back the context and end-game content are kinda different, some specific points always end up appearing.
Over at the official forums, Freezy has started a discussion on a few of the game's current problems and suggesting some solutions from a competitive player's perspective - check the preview below. MeatHeadMikhail has also made a long video talking about what he thinks are the biggest issues on the game right now - watch it below as well.
Do you agree with these? What would be the biggest things you would change on D3's current iteration? What is the single biggest problem you would solve with D3 if you had the resources?
So after a long commitment to being super shy and procrastinating about writing something like this up. I decided it’s finally time and I’ve had enough. In this write up I’ve decided to mention and explain as well as hopefully give some adequate examples of combating these flaws/ideas. I’m fully aware that some if not most of these idea’s have and are being worked on currently. Note that most of these are coming from a competitive player bias so keep that in mind. Also I apologize for the huge wall of text.
ITEMISATION Experience Gear People who play non leech classes are forced into other classes to compete otherwise they have a disadvantage in highly competitive play. One tier can mean the difference between paragon 800-900, or 1100-1200. So if you only want to play DH you’re forced into a position to either leech or fall behind the pure leechers that are 100-200 or more paragon ahead of you.
I’m still unsure if ancient weapons were actually a good idea or not. The power behind just a single slot giving that much more dps than the rest of your gear hinges on how lucky you are. When you spend over 1.3million shards and not see a SINGLE ancient item that you’re looking for, it’s depressing. Using Kridershots as an example, the chance of you getting the just the correct affixes is an 8.88% chance. Then an ancient item which I think is 10% chance, you’re looking at 0.888% chance, then you have to consider all of those rolls have to be average or above average and you’re looking at an extremely low chance of getting the krider you’re looking for. Things like discipline should always be rolled on weapons, also things like primary stat (Fist of Azz, Blade of Prophecy). Maybe even increase the percentage chance for weapons to be ancient or reduce the cost to gamble, it’s outrageous to spend so much and get nothing in return.
Old Sets I know they’re being worked on over time but like this video mikhail had posted (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQEFMle-I3U), equalizing the power of each set each season will lead to much more enjoyable competitive scene.
Unused Legendaries There needs to be legendary affixes for every single legendary there is so that every item can be looked at rather than just thrown away immediately. It will open up build diversity and create more unique builds rather than forced into mainstream items.
New Hellfire Items In this video alkaizer talks about some idea’s for a new hellfire item (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAgTbejzxCg). The idea was that maybe you do some sort of hellfire quest where you are rewarded with an enchantment that gets applied to some pants. And what it does is gives you a random rune to a random skill of your class giving you some awesome combinations. Anything like this will help improve the game even though you’d be forced to get the perfect rune for the perfect skill. At least it’d give you more options.
Legendaries OP Allow some certain legendaries to be OP. A good example was Mortiks Bracers, it was going to shake the standard 4player meta a crazy amount then they were removed thinking they were too strong. Ok they were strong yes but it would of made things very interesting. If every class had an item like this to combat a standard setup it would give more options. The changes to Focus/Restraint were a great example. (continues...)
The VOD for today's Play Your Way series featuring a Monk build by DemonCoyote is now available. They had an environmental artist as guest, so you can hear him discuss a bit about his work, and see the legendary Monk Quinsane in action too!
Nevalistis took some time to reply to a few posts on the Play Your Way blog post, clarifying for those unfamiliar with this event its purpose and why it follows such a format. On one of those she did promise that the D3 dev team works exclusively on it and there are some really cool things on the way - which means this hiatus could be the calm before the storm!
So basically no dev which means no information about the 'near' future of this game?
It's important to remember that design isn't the only aspect of game development. Lots of talented people work on Diablo III in different capacities. Josh happens to work on the visuals of the areas your hero explores.
It's also worth reiterating that these livestreams aren't intended as Q&A's about upcoming content; they're an opportunity to meet our development team in a more casual setting. The more question-answer type stuff is better served by our Tavern Talk series. When we have another of those on the way, we'll be sure to let you all know!
I totally agree. Maybe he will talk about the Ruins of Scherons or how its called.
Well, this wasn't meant in a negative way! You have to understand us: We love this game. We really love to hear about the future and updates of this game. That's why we keep asking :P. Some of the changes that will come are really really cool thats why I cannot wait for them
I'm excited for the stream tho. Have fun!
Of course! Passion is what drives this community, just as it's what drives our development team. We can relate!
Moments of quiet can happen, though, and that pretty much means we're busy at work on what's next. Patience; I promise there's some really cool things on the way!
They are 100% busy with that other game i dont remember name Storm Hero
The Diablo III development team works exclusively on Diablo III. The activity in our other games is not related to Diablo III's development schedule.
Zen has uploaded video footage of his 3 man party clearing a GR level 65 on hardcore! Sick plays and consistency from this party, and congratulations on achieving rank #1 with that clear. Check it out!
Eternal Conflict Wallpaper
The Diablo themed event over at Heroes of the Storm called Eternal Conflict has spawned some amazing artwork from Blizzard, and some users over at Reddit have put together prety cool wallpapers based on it. We've featured one from Maskimus below - click on it for the 1080p version. And for those who would like one without the heroes and the logo, and a very sleek border, Holyknight3000'sversion is simply amazing!
The votes are in for our next Play Your Way build, and by a very close 10 vote edge, the Monk will be making a triumphant return to our next livestream!

New Moderators Needed!
DiabloFans needs you! We are looking to recruit some new mods to help us keep the forums neat and tidy according to the forum guidelines. Below are a few general guidelines when filling out your application form on the designed thread.
Do not apply if you have a short temper. You will be expected to handle things calmly, not just ban and warn everyone. Sometimes it's more beneficial to talk or work things out. Use good judgement.
Do not apply if you only plan to stick around for a month or two. This is a volunteer job so I don't expect you to be online all the time but we need active mods.
You will be expected to take part in discussions and be active in the community. We do have a leave of absence thread though to let us see you are on vacation, busy with finals, cats on fire, etc.
We do not limit you to one section. You will have the choice of moderating anywhere you see that needs it. It's fine if you choose to mainly stick to a few sections just take a peek at others when you have time.
Having warnings will not exclude you from being chosen but it does of course lessen your chances if it's a significant warning.
