    posted a message on How to Snipe items in the AH -make millions of gold!
    Also, it's pretty evident that a hard close leads to a higher price than a soft close. In a hard close people will bid up to the price they are willing to pay, and if they don't get the item, it wasn't worth the gold anyways (in their opinion) and some bugger didn't get the item cheap. In case the price people are willing to pay is too low, someone is going to snipe the auction.

    posted a message on How do you make your gold?
    Here's the secret to infinite gold:



    Buying items wit credit and fleeing to the Bahamas or some other country without an extradition agreement before the bills arrive.

    Oh s**t, that'd be funny if that wasn't how the world economy worked already.

    PS: on a more serious note, farming and being on the know about prices is how I make my gold. Have something in the upwards of 100 millions (most of it in gear I wear). Not that much compared to some, but somewhat enough.

    Finally able to do A3 with some ease with my barb.

    Got me a 890 DPS 1h mace with massive life on hit: ~460 loh, 3% life steal and an open socket (which I filled with a star amethyst/300 life on hit). Now one hit heals me for ~1350.

    It's kind of ridiculous, my barb's gear is worth something akin to 30-40 million gold total and I still die once in a while and have to skip some packs.

    I wish people would at least use the "search" function before putting stuff up for auction. Making gold would at least require *SOME* effort then:



    It was a 63 all resist, 162 vitality helmet with a socket and some intelligence. Probably could have sold for 6 or 7 million, but I wanted my gold quickly, so put the buyout at a cheap 5 million. Took like 10 minutes to sell.

    I think it was appropriately named, though.

    EDIT:

    Eh, someone put it up for 5,85 million now into the AH. Wonder if he realizes that with the AH cut he makes no profit. (In fact a 18k loss).

    Right now legendaries sell for way more than they are actually useful for. Just take the gold and buy some bigger upgrade instead.

    A bit of bad luck with the dexterity affix there, Jamoose. But oh man, that helmet looks awesome.

    Just as I commented on your legendary, I found my first one, and it's even an improvement!

    My guess is that the ones who want to avoid spoilers will steer clear until they've beaten normal. But overall, the buzz will be higher. I'd say more. Definitely more.

    posted a message on Why do people vote up girls because they're girls?
    I think OP is somewhat correct, but it's not simply about the poster's sex. Posters that differentiate from others are probably more likely to get an upvote. Whether the differentiation is from rad posting, being or not being a girl, or a groovy signature, probably does not matter that much.

    Quote from succubus_queen

    On the pretty girl gets the promotion thing though, there's a lot more to that. I work in technology, and I never feel like I'm taken as seriously as the males. My male counterparts can be somewaht dismissive, and I have to work harder to get my ideas taken seriously. Respect is not easy to come by for a woman in a male dominated industry or work environment. Also being thought attractive is more likely to get you undocumentable harassment than promotions.

    This.

    Around here, female law students outnumber male law students (something like 55-45 ratio), but the industry is still strongly male-dominated since law schools were male-dominated until the 90's. It's pretty easy to observe that women need to take an extra step to be taken as seriously as men.

    This thread needs more serious conversations.

    What do you guys think of calculative persons in social circles? By calculative I mean people that act partially based on rationale opposed to just going by the gut, i.e. what feels right and natural.

    Like, not calculative to the point of being ridiculously insincere, but people that always consider the bigger picture and ramifications of isolated choices. Like, for example person X calls you and asks you out for a couple drinks. You don't really feel like spending time with person X as you'd rather just go home and play some Skyrim, but you know he's part of your larger social circles and that you haven't had a chance of catching up with X lately.

    The "going by the gut" option would be to just go home and play Skyrim, since that's what you yourself want to do, and tell X that you'll have the drinks some other time. He probably won't ask unless you do.

    The "calculative" option would be to go and have the drinks, spend some OK time, but deep down know that you'd rather preferred playing the game. In the long run your and person X's relationship improved, possibly resulting in other benefits such as an improved relationship with mutual friends and overall good social karma.

    I don't know, many people think being calculative in social relationships is somehow being dishonest and manipulative. I think it isn't. Maybe I'm just a sociopath.

    Diablo II Hell (post patch 1.10) isn't easy either if you solo it without rushing and with no pre-existing gear. But the difficulty is only achieved through cheap-shots:
    1. Less resistance on characters (-100 all).
    2. More resistances and thus immunities on monsters.
    The cheap shots are easy enough to counter (builds that can take care of immunities, getting enough resistance on gear) which then once again turns the difficulty both rather easy and too strongly encourage you to use cookie-cutter builds that can take care of immunities.

    I don't really get all the incessant whine about DIII.

    Diablo II had a lot of stupid design flaws in it (granted, we're talking of a game released in 2001) and the game was absurdly hollow after beating the story mode and all difficulties (improve gear ad nauseam, PvP). The skill system was too unforgiving and the itemization horribly designed (rarity and quality had little correlation).

    Diablo III is a new game building on the legacy, not Diablo II and half.


    PS: I was one of the "richest" players in EU, played DII for more hours than I care to think of (hundreds after hundreds) and with a more hardcore attitude than I can understand in retrospect, yet I bloody loved the beta content and Diablo III is seeming to be a better game than number II.
