    Don't you mean from Saturday 10 AM to Sunday 12 PM? 12 AM doesn't add up 26 hours, just 14.


    Oh, right, time conversions. I forgot that it goes from AM to PM before it goes from 12 to 1. Silly system.

    I have two characters that can (kinda) handle act 2. A block of solid Monk that chills around at 9k damage, but doesn't take any damage unless I get trapped in desecration or something. It's progress, but extremely slow progress.

    The other one is a Barbarian with a whopping 45k damage, tons of durability, but crappy life gain. I'm fine for as long as there are 3-4 enemies around, but less than that and Revenge can't heal me fast enough, which obviously translates to eventual death in longer elite fights. Depending on the affix rolls I may or may not have to pay more in repair costs than I gain from the questing.


    Rend will be your next best friend, I haven't touched revenge since.

    Yeah, Rend would be reliable for life gain, but I tried it and it just doesn't work for me.

    Rend heals for about 10% of my max hp per second and enemy, while Revenge heals me for 5% per activation and enemy. In the initial engage I'm being hit enough for Revenge to heal more than Rend, but at the end of the fight I would get about twice to four times as much health from Rend.

    However, I'm also using Revenge as my primary AoE damage, and Rend is crappy in that aspect.

    Rend does a flat 140% damage per second.
    Revenge does 220% damage per activation, and in initial engages (before elites are the only enemies still standing) I can usually activate Revenge at least 2 times per second, which translates to 440% damage per second, over 3 times as high as Rend.

    My current strategy (playing Berserker Rage) is pretty much to pop War Cry and Battle Rage, run into the thickest part of the pack, stack up Frenzy, spam Revenge, pop Ignore Pain, and spam more Revenge. That takes care of the weak packs, but not the elites.
    Rend would help against the elites, but if I replace Revenge I end up getting overwhelmed by minor enemies instead.

    In fact I've tried replacing Revenge with a lot of stuff, but I've come to the conclusion that it is essentially the only skill in my build I can't replace. Every time I try I end up losing more damage than I get in survivability, or vice versa. Revenge is just too crucial when you're trying to stay at max Fury, and at the same time deal decent damage.

    I was in the exact same boat as you using a very similar build, the two hand build that me and Killtrox (name change for the win) were discussing earlier is the very same I am now referring to use. I've tripled my damage, AoE is better, and I don't die as often, you can even rend 1-2 enemies run away and you'll be at half health in a few seconds.

    I just love that feeling when my LoL match history is nothing but defeats, and I decide that the best cure is to matchmake at 4 in the morning.

    That game ended a few minutes ago, and it was glorious. The success begun at champion select when one person called mid lane, and another one insta-locked the same lane. The one who called mid asked if the insta-locker could go bot lane instead, but received no response, so eventually he just locked as well, hoping that he would get mid by himself. Myself, being fond of the slightly more challenging picks, chose Rengar and played as a jungler.

    So the game started, and of course none of them wanted to give up mid. The one who called out mid snapped almost instantly, and left the game about two minutes in. It was a great start, sure, but it was about to get even better really fast.

    Our single player at bot was completely butt-shattered in a matter of minutes, snapped, and obviously vented all his loveliness on our remaining player in mid. Soon enough, bot was left empty when our former botlaner decided that he was better used elsewhere. He hung out with me in the jungle a little, gave top lane a visit, but for the most part remained in mid together with our remaining insta-locker. Of course, he didn't do all of this in silence, as it was way more productive to pour his feelings all over the chat for the remaining 30 minutes. Me? I did what the swag-lion normally does: alternated my swagging between their ad carry and ap carry, and received nothing but top remarks for my efforts.

    About 20 minutes of dancing, intentional enemy lovemaking, and countless kind words later, our insta-locker finally snapped as well. Taking matters into all-chat, they both politely explained to the other team why the other deserved to be banned, and how every move by Rengar the swag-lion should be praised with virgin sacrifices and freshly sharpened pencils. I gave them both the encouragement they needed to continue, by ending every sentence with a smiley-face.

    Some few minutes remained of the game when our player at top lane spoke his first and only wise words for the entire duration of the game: The words were so astounding that I can't quote them, only describe their double upside-down question mark appearance. They told me stories I'll never forget.


    The game, somehow, ended in a loss. I gave everyone in my team honor for being helpful, because I felt that their actions helped me reach a new level of enlightenment. Hopefully I will get an equally awesome experience the next time I decide to play at 4 in the morning.

    Unfortunately don't I know anything LoL/HoN/Dota related, well maybe HoN, cause my roommate play it quite often and I watch him play sometimes.

    In other news, 3 of my 5 characters are level 60 (1) at least. It is my goal to get each class to at least level 60 (1). My other 2 characters are level 51 starting in Hell. It's gonna feel epic when I get all 5 to 60.

    http://eu.battle.net...67/hero/4359254

    Last I gave a run-through of my characters, only my Monk was in Inferno. My barb didn't feel epicly strong, when playing Nightmare/beginning of Hell, but now he just feel so fucking strong. Have to thank Slayerviper for showing that 2handed barb thread, I didn't change much, but the little changes were significant. "Furious Charge" into a huge pack of demons and spamming that till most are dead are so cool (have the rune that -2sec per enemy hit).

    Edit: Name change for me from JaundiceBunny --> KilltroX. Haven't mentioned it before

    Weird thing happened in D3 today. I was playing my level 52 Witch Doctor in Hell and I encountered the Khazra Key Warden in the Fields of Misery. Is this suppose to happen? I thought only level 60 players can use it thus only appear in Inferno? Or can you collect it in any difficulty and use one of your level 60's to use the Infernal Machine?

    Hmm not sure, I think they added it as normal content but unless your MP1 or higher it won't drop a key. On an awesome note I found my first set item in a hour playing 1.0.5. Too bad it was a lame Monk weapon so I didn't hit the big payday.

    Yeah I think so too, found the keywardens in Act 1 and 3 (basically skipped Act 2) and didn't get the keys. Do you still have that Monk set item? Lol I wanna see it! You already sold it didn't you? :)

    Lol yeah I got 2 legendaries today with a total of about 5, including these, in about 250 hours total. Also how long does it take you battle.net profile to update? Cause it says my barb hasn't finished Hell (finished 2-3 days ago) and my Witch Doc is level 59 and it still says it's level 51 -_-

    Edit: Forgot to mention - For some reason when I join a pub game or I start a game and open to pub, my game gets really laggy. I have tested it yesterday and today as well.

    - Couple of months back when D3 came out my latency was between 180-200ms for every game. (green bar)
    - Now if I play alone it's between 220-300ms (green/yellow bar).
    - If I play pub game it's always between 300-500ms with spikes of 5-10 seconds up to 1000+. The spikes are in all the games now.

    I'm not downloading anything when I play and I ran speedtest.net whilst playing and it's fine. Any ideas why this might be so?

    Edit 2: This started happening this week, even before the patch.

    Not too sure, I've had some pretty quick updates. I use an online calculator to help shopping on the AH and it read updates on my profile within hours. I sold the weapon for 1.25 mil... I probably could have gotten more but I'm worried about the larger influx of legendaries so I undercut the lowest selling one.

    Hmm something like one hand 897 DPS, 1.55 APS, 170ish Dex, 130ish Int, 600+ LoH (can't remember) and the set adds +130 dex, oh and it added like 33 life per spirit.. or was that .33 I can't remember.

    It's ping you're worried about, not speed.

    Pingtest.net

    If you have a high quality connection, you could actually have a slower connection and still obliterate people who have a much faster connection with average quality connection. Quality is your ping rate, and your Jitter. Don't worry about the packet send and receive. I get packets returned about 50% of the time I do the test. Yet I still kick ass on BL:R. I have B+ connection by the way.

    I replied to a thread in the official site. Another guy from South Africa has the same problem.

    PS I want to post this in that thread but when I want to submit it gives a "Your post contains invalid or restricted HTML code". I can't figure out what part it is, I've removed a couple of things but nothing seems to work -_-



    Mmm well, I've done ping tests on pingtest(dot)net and my pings are extremely high (note this is from Joburg and I'm in Cape Town so 50ms? added):

    First set of results:
    - South of EU (Malta) - 331ms
    - Middle of EU (UK) - 471ms
    - North of EU (Germany) - 321ms

    Second set of results:
    - South of EU (Malta) - 285ms
    - Middle of EU (UK) - 482ms
    - North of EU (Germany) - 291ms

    Third set of results:
    - South of EU (Malta) - 315ms
    - Middle of EU (UK) - 489ms
    - North of EU (Germany) - 280ms

    Weird that the North is basically the same as the South. Could it be that Germany just have better servers? I know that the UK is a bit to the left in comparison to the other, but that big a difference is abnormal.

    I don't really know in what range a connection is considered stable (10ms-20ms?). I guess it might be our ISP. But it will be nice for a Blizz employee to comment on this, since they know, for one, where the EU servers are located and why this might be happening.

    Also I've checked that in BF3, when I go to a server in:
    - Germany - 236-237ms.
    - UK - 228-230ms.
    - Italy - 228-230ms.

    And I've just played D3 in a pub game with constant 220ms ping -_- (which is good)

    FML.

    Earlier today I played and the before mentioned ping problems were still occurring ..Man hope it's fixed now...but will post again if it happens again.
