It shouldn't be a pain to crunch numbers though. That info is important and should be laid out directly in front of us. Especially when it drives the masses towards a specific item set. In this case it drives all players to play with 1H + OH or DW, which excludes a large majority of items, that Blizzard wants us to use. If they're not good enough people will just bitch and complain about not getting good drops, even though they're getting perfectly fine 2Handed weapons. This will then spur them to make 2Handers more powerful, or they'll end up giving them the boot and lower their percentage to drop based on players wants. Providing players with an easily communicable stat that can show players how much better they could be with a 2Hander in certain situations is extremely important in ensurign that players feel like their drops are still worth something.
I'm not advocating for such increases that we have to use 2 handers, but a slight damage buff over 1Handers + offhand is reasonable to ask, and I'd ask they directly use the +Damage weapon affix when calculating damage range and DPS, and make damage ranges visible.

This is essentially moot though with D3, In d2 only a handful of builds were 'viable' whereas in D3 almost all builds, barring some that don't really have any damage modifiers or damaging attacks, are 'viable'. SO to say that they'd find the 1 build rules them all quicker, is not really relevant. Sure there are always going to be builds that straight up do better, but at least in Diablo 3 the margin at which they do is significantly smaller.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
And Bleu they could say somethings like Cluster arrow hits explodes for an initial damage of 1k-2k then releases three grenades each dealing 1k-2k on hit. Or something similar, I don't think this would be a major problem.What I do see as a problem is the % it's not feasible for someone to sit and calculate out their damage per hit based on a percentage, and my other problem is + damage affix not factoring into the DPS of the weapon!. It's a huge part of getting extra damage!

I have a question!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Let me get this straight. I haven't really played for a few days due to homework, but from what I get from it all is the problem people are having is that 2Handers have significantly less Sheet DPS than 1H + OH or DW. But they gain an increase per hit which can sometimes equate to better shots for certain skills? The bug is that they were rolling 1H damage stats? or that the + damage stat was/is lower than expected?
Second question, why does the DPS seem to NOT factor in the Elemental or physical + Damage affix when calculating DPS. The one someone showed earlier seemed to almost DOUBLE its damage when you factored in the Elemental damage it had on it.
Third question, would a change in the way skills show damage be warranted to fix this problem that people are having with 2Handers? and by Change how they show damage I mean instead of saying Frozen Orb does 450% damage( Made up number don't know the exact) it should say Frozen Orb deals 111002-150000 Damage? Would this allow players to more clearly see the change a 2Hander could do to help them?

I assumed it was not allowed sings you cant use both Kerri's wings and Tyraels at the same time, even though they'd be out of the way on each other. Odd and how do you guys have them already the game isn't out. I don't remember people getting the HoTS portraits and wings before HoTS came out? Same way no one has any ROS stuff either....Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

No one has it yet, and the banner will take the place of wings. You won't be able to have both active at the same time.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I Think that's technically better than a 1h, although I'd need a CTRL+ screenshot for comparison, because It doesn't seem to be factoring in the almost double damage increase thanks to the +Arcane. Think about it. Your range isn't 1170-1408 its actually 2055-2475 which averages about 2265 DPS. This is all speculation of course , if that's how the weapons handle damage which is how I assumed they worked. Could be wrong, wouldn't be the first time, although I see no reason why this isn't how it works.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
