Official Diablo III Site Gets Updated

    Did anyone else see the name of the Indigo rune together with the wizard's skill Blizzard?

    Stark Winter
    Indigo Runestone
    Increase the size of the Blizzard to cover 22 yards, and deal 136-188 Cold damage per second.

    For those who don't understand, Stark is a family which the story revolves around in "The Land of Fire and Ice" (book(s)) and Game of Thrones (tv series).

    Dat easter egg

    Stark also just means "sheer, utter, downright or complete" along with "harsh, grim, or desolate." Although I did actually have that same thought. And its A Song of Ice and Fire. Corrections aside, I would love it if it was actually an intentional easter egg, seeing as I love that show.

    Ahem, those books B);)

    Anyway, about the 'guns' I don't think I have a problem with it but some one will. As to where it is mentions, its under the key features heading on the right quick aside that sums up the class.
    If that made sense to you, Bravo! I think I even confused myself...

    I would bet (and hope) that its either someone making a typo after seeing 'pistol crossbows' or that its referring to active skills the DH has, like Rapid Fire. Ideally we'll get a blue post on the matter soon.

    Also, I feel like, if they are in the game, they would be DH specific, and would therefore be mentioned in the DH's Unique Equipment section.

    Apologies if this has been brought up already but there seems to have been a change to the Nephalem cube graphic on the D3 community site according to this article: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/game/whats-new

    Is this an earlier graphic, a replacement to avoid confusion, or a mistake?

    This is great. I like how they visualized all active skills, passive skills and runeeffects.
    It feels like we are close to a release :wd:

    i mean i got already a build making him focus healing/buffing his allies LOL

    I guess you're right.

    I'm laughing to all the people in their face who started threads (here or d3 community forum) that there will be less build from the current system. Well, few hours after the release of the calculator, there's already tons of different builds made according to each and every one's play style.
    I love all loot fest kind of game! I will be playing all of them for the next few years. Loot fest games I'm looking forward to: LotR: War in the North, Torchlight 2, Borderlands 2 and of course Diablo 3.

    The Death of the Cookie Cutter?

    Active Combo * # of Runes * Passive Combo = number of potential builds

    Barbarian (22c6)*5 * (15c3) = (74,913)*5 * 455 = 170,427,075
    Demon Hunter (23c6)*5 * (13c3) = (100,947)*5 * 286 = 144,354,210
    Monk (21c6)*5 * (13c3) = (54,264)*5 * 286 = 77,597,520
    Witch Doctor (22c6)*5 * (12c3) = (74,613)*5 * 220 = 82,074,300
    Wizard (25c6)*5 * (12c3) = (177,100)*5 * 220 = 194,810,000

    Total = 669,263,105 different possible builds

    (803,115,726 if including un-runed skills)

    Happy for my maths to be ripped apart :)

    The Monk and WD need some love then. How can it be so that other classes have DOUBLE their potential builds. Even if the number is really high, it should be about even.


    Oh and, screw everyone that said there was little customization! I took a quick tour on the barbarian skills and I'm overwhelmed by the amount of possible combo's im going to try on him!!! PLUS you can optimize your gear per build..

    Oh wawu, they made me even more anxious for the release :

    I'm not going to argue with your math (in fact none of this is personal), but... The number is arbitrary beyond belief. I have no idea why Blizzard started throwing these numbers around, because they're just numbers. It's like listening to a salesman bragging about how their newest vacuum cleaner has 100 different settings for vacuum strength, and on top of that, it comes with an optional transparent hose meaning you've got 200 different ways of vacuuming your home. And that's not even counting the near infinite amount of ways the hose bends!

    God damn it. I love Diablo and I'll love D3, but I do not see the point of this.
