Didn't count the time I was idle, but around 30 minutes should be right. Last time it happened to me was for the duration of a LoL game that lasted around 45 minutes.
When paused, you're considered idle anyway.

Apr 16, 2012Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion- Pausing. Can you pause D3? I read you cant and the closest thing to it is finding somewhere safe (town I presume) and... just standing there, which leads me to my next point.
Yes. When playing alone, pressing "escape" gets you to the options and pauses the game for you. Going to town is pretty good too, since you get Town Portal quite early too.
- Autokick. Will you get kicked from inactivity?
Yes you are. Pretty much like in WoW, or even in Diablo II. When you stand idle too much time you get kicked. The quest progress is saved, though, so you can resume from the closest checkpoint when you get back.
- Saving. Can you save at any point, or do you need to find a checkpoint?
Character data is saved whenever there's a change, so it's like... all the time. "Save and Exit" doesn't even exist anymore, it's just "Exit". Save happens all the time.
- Checkpoint Availability. I also read that sometimes checkpoints can be VERY far between... like 2 hours in some cases. More time than I usually even spend playing on a week night.
In the beta they're pretty close to one another. Consider that the beta is about 3 hours if you explore every corner and kill every barrel (in addition to the monsters etc) and there's lots of checkpoints in it. I'd say there's a checkpoint every 10-15 minutes, but I could be a little off. Certainly not over 20 minutes, though.
With all that said... good luck getting a beta key, but the topic won't be discussed in our forums.
Sep 7, 2011Yeah, they probably have a role to play in the Act1 storyline and they said the beta ends before the major stuff.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
We'll get to kill everything soon enough, though. The beta looks very polished already. And there doesn't appear to be any problems with it's integration to battle.net either. Fingers crossed for 2011 release!
Sep 6, 2011Oh, they are under NDA alright. The F&F beta was decided last minute (literally). And an NDA applies too for the duration of the F&F beta. That at least was what we knew till last night. Don't know if we'll get any new info on the matter. But honestly, I've never seen such a mess (as in leaks and stuff) by Blizzard before.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Thanks! And... my mod powers allowed me not only to edit my own post to ensure you remain sneaky, but edit yours too to change the quote!
Yes, we mods are that awesome!

Yeah and when you grind those passives, what are those for? new builds? you use those new builds for what?
Diablo has always been grinding, gearing up to be more efficient in handling the hardest content.
Jun 19, 2012Funny. Those who had given up on Inferno before are still whining, while my friends who thought it just needed a little tweak are happily farming Act 3 or 4 in the gear they used to do Act 2 in.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Good players adapt. Bad players whine. Figure out which one you are.
May 30, 2012I know this has been posted 100x, but this is my first thread and I wanted to create something special, and I've just recently found this really obvious farming spot in act 2, but its just so convenient, and easy, for me at least, that I needed to post it. I make youtube videos for diablo 3 to try any help people out, more specifically people in inferno, I hope this will help some people get that edge they need to make some real progress, thanks everyone that checks this out, if you like it spread the word, and please, enjoy it ! If this helps you out, please bump for more exposure.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

No, the dumbest freakin' thing they could possibly do is require a constant internet connection!! My god, seriously??? It's not an online game unless you want it to be one AND THEN you should (obviously) have an internet connection. Eight years! I've been waiting for this game for eight years -- the waiting, the hype, the waiting.... and it SUCKS!!! (awesome graphics, though) But seriously... no character customization, no zooming in or out, and... click to move? I understand that the original Diablo was click to move, I understand sentiment, tradition, what have you, but PC gaming has advanced. The game is VERY dissappointing in my opinion, especially the constant internet connection requirement. Diablo 3 plays like a game that was developed 10 years ago with modern day graphics. Where's the advancement, the evolution of PC gaming? Didn't Blizz make WoW? What... is their Diablo 3 department where they put the newbie programmers before they graduate to the WoW department?
So... if there's a storm in my neck of the woods (pretty common) and my internet goes down (also common) I can't play Diablo like I'm used to playing Diablo? I'm subject to server down time for a game that's not an online game unless I want it to be an online game? I have to put up with lag for a game that's not an online game unless I want it to be an online game? I have to wait in a queue because the server's full for a game that's not an online game unless I want it to be an online game? When I played Diablo 2 I played on Battlenet exactly once; I usually played it by myself or with a friend on a private network -- it's not an online game! Unless, of course, I want it to be an online game.
Am I ever gonna use Diablo 3's online auction house? No, I like finding my own stuff and I don't really care about putting the crap I find on the AH. Am I ever gonna play on Diablo 3's public servers? No, I can't imagine sharing that small of an environment with a bunch of rude and careless newb's, especially when I think about how rude players were and how cut-throat WoW became after just a couple of years (who can forget the dicks that went AFK while sitting on a mailbox in Org. on their mammoth war mounts?)
Diablo has always been a game that I played while unwinding after a busy (or even not-so-busy) day, before going to bed and usually ended up playing too long (and not getting enough sleep) because I enjoyed exploring a zone and kept logging out and resetting the zone so I could explore it again -- alone, and occasionally with a friend.
Am I gonna buy Diablo 3? No. After all the waiting and all the hype, I expected too much and am too dissappointed with it -- if it didn't require a constant internet connection, I'd buy it just to relive the good ol' days and, out of curiousity, see what's new in the game, but I'm too bummed out with the way it came out and the constant online thing is just too much for me.
Good, leave. The rest of us would like the OPTION to use the AH, or the OPTION to play with others. In this day almost every internet connection is always-on. Sure there are a few exceptions, but those are rare.
Your internet connection's crappy connectivity isn't Blizzard's fault, it's your ISP's. Maybe you should be complaining to them?
Even during open beta there wasn't very much lag caused by the server, and I didn't experience a single queue playing every day.

PLAY ALL THE CLASSES AT THE SAME TIME!
Apr 18, 2012So, it's May 2012 and you're done working for the week. It's Friday.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
After a quick smoke you decide to start playing your freshly bought copy of Diablo III.
You enter a multiplayer map.
Suddenly, three more guys appear : " 'sup brah?"
Since these guys are decent, stand-up english-speaking players with big pink hearts, they decide to first have a talk in the group on class lineup. Furthermore, they tell you that they too have the same daily schedule as you (coincidence?) and will gladly play in the world of Sanctuary along you after work ( ~ 19:00 PM GMT +2).
You are very pleased with this, but state that you're the oldest of the group and you should pick first and that they should pick depending on you. They mumble a bit and then agree with this.
You had some fights when you were little in the school yard, so you decide to pick .... BARBARIAN.
What do you think is now the OPTIMAL combination (after a shallow judgement of the class skills presented so far) to finish and hack all the way through INFERNO with ONLY this group lineup?
BARBARIAN + ? + ? + ?
* DEMON HUNTER
Monk said "I'll bash up with you and support with mantras", wizard yelled "I fucking love lazers!" and the demon hunter noded and was ready to CC/spit arrows around.
TL;DR : Which are the best setup combinations up till Inferno dificulty (maybe including)? Are solo/2-player scenarios better?
NOTE: Sorry for the long shot, I love a good story.
