    posted a message on Blizzard is ramping up efforts, yet another Banwave on US Servers
    Quote from Troupstergo-next

    Looks like Blizzard is really clamping down on cheaters in Season 9, and I have to say I applaud their efforts.


    If you take a look at the 4-man leaderboard, it's easy to see there are hundreds of accounts now missing.


    Out of the top 100 clears, there are only 102 people, rather than the expected 350+.


    :) Don't cheat guys, it doesn't pay off.

    Not really, if our group does 4 man gr 80 and I later do a 4 man 85 with some other ppl the 3 initial ppl will show up w/o me on that leaderboard spot.
    For example 13th place 4 hc season 9 gr109 shows as 2 ppl but the 2 others did g110 and are displayed in a result above.
    This is not displayed on the bnet rankings webpage, you have to look at the leaderboard in game to verify.
    However the group in spot number 1 is missing a monk and since you cant go higher it's fair to assume there were reasons.

    I doubt it, maybe they caught a few for the sake of it but there's a lot of ppl using thud.

    Most groups doing 95+ have a barb in the group using thud, it makes things so much more efficient.


    Why barb?

    Barb coordinates, does the pulling and needs to catch the elites and since he's got the nem bracers knowing where and when the pylons spawn helps.

    I can especially see with this seasons gr layout and crappy mob density that a lot of ppl find it neccessary.


    Currently in HC top 3 man team is missing their barb, top 4 man seems to be missing a monk (only checked bnet not ingame but I think they are the same).


    I don't really care myself what others use (I compare with my own results from prev seasons) this said having someone in group with Thud makes the game less exiting, but so does empty corridors....

    posted a message on Returning player: current meta/classes setup ?

    Highest ranked in our clan only use wiz and it's getting more and more difficult to get support as firebat wd from clan or friends list.

    Thats on HC.

    But basically you need IP from supp barb and healing from monk, what dps you add and/or a third supp is up to you.

    There are a lot of options up to 80, at 85 it gets pretty narrow but I did 85 with firebat/monk/barb and firebat/monk/monk/barb but you can even run sac garg on 85 so ....

    Also assume most who are past 90 have atleast one in group who use HUD, seems it's not detectable still.

    posted a message on WD build idea - Arachyr frogs + dots

    Yeah, I recall when in early seasons I played Rheno and fetishes, and toads were only for fetish spawn.

    I'll probably try it cause Rheno/frogs are cool but I very much doubt it'll be useful.

    My conclusion from reading negatives about spirit barrage, the Arachyr buff will mainly boost firebat, maybe needed not to be dumped entirely in favour of wizards.

    But we'll see, maybe someone will manage to cook up a cool decent new build.

    posted a message on HT Firebat build Optimisation, legendary gems choices and Breakpoints.

    I found a really good staff with high damroll 24% area dam 5as but only 1250int.

    Is it better to reroll the as to 7 for that breakpoint than shoving int to 1400.

    I have 7% on gloves (could swap for ring with as IF needed).

    posted a message on Help with HT bats gear improve

    Thanks, I have a spare non auged ht-bater geared up.

    Will practice a bit IF I get the time before tossing gems on it.

    Spare 80-gems are beginning to stack up.

    Otoh Im not sure unauged will be good enough (closing in on para 1k).

    I mean group play HC where I want to have spirit vessel, I assume confidence ritual is the best to give up?

    posted a message on Best solo "p-level" build? (1-2 items with gem of ease)

    HF amu+HF ring with vit rolls and leg gem for hp regen and whatever in the other.

    Any ANC 2h with vit and gem of ease , best is maybe furnace or that sledge (got huge rolls but no specials).

    Use wormwood in cube.

    This is enough to get you around lvl 40 from One T6 hellrift bounty.

    Its a bit slower after 60 and youll need to use the other eq slots.

    For full op see Doc above.

    What passive would you suggest giving up for spirit vessel playing HC?

    First of all you need firebats staff in hand. Cause it rolls with Firebat damage.

    Chest, legs, shoulders , helm are fine to augment


    you also need IAS on gloves and staff to get 11% more damage for higher breakpoint.

    Is that 11%ias needed, or a enough ias for +11% damage breakpoint.

    For 50-60 its viable, so are most wd set builds.

    Hey I did the 45 gr no set challenge with firebats and even that would be Good enough for 50.

    posted a message on sacrifice stacks

    I do play HC and testing is very important but I can't sit around watching numbers I must stay alive also.

    I should really try and record some.

    Edit: Of course there is that testing method with extremely low fixed damage weapons IF they still are available, while playing on low difficulty.

    Maybe a stupid question but, what are the stacks I get when using sacrifice/provoke the pack?

    I assume we get 20% once and not up to 5x.

    posted a message on 2.4.2 New Meta? 103 clear+video

    I did a bunch of firebats testing in S6, including a novelty lon build.

    Im impressed that you managed to survive.

    Another issue was that it was too slow to channel up taeguk with 2h.

    Got to test as I've got a sick ANC roe.

    Will be tested a lot lower as I play HC.
