And what is the point of your answer.
OP: For a long time the only game I played was Diablo 2. Metropolis_Man knows me since we hosted a lot of Single Player Tournaments for a D2 mod called Eastern Sun. Those were good times and it would be nice if we could have some of those tournaments in D3.
I have been playing quite a bit of other games like The Elder Scrolls, Fallout 3/New Vegas/Fallout 4, Sub Nautica, Stonehearth, Timber and Stone, Elite, Torchlight 1 and 2, Rebel Galaxy.
The important part is having fun playing a game that you are enjoying. If at anytime you are feeling burnt out take a break and do something else. It can be taking up a different hobby.

That is why I love solo, wish it could even be slower since it is way to fast to level. I wish for the old days when it took a few hundred hours of game time to max a character level now it almost pointless to even have the max character level since it takes almost no time to get there.
Part of the reason the End Game is boring is it is too easy and too fast to get there.
Story mode is pointless now since for the most part it is quick bounties to get some mats, gear, and nightmare keys. Then the rest is Rifts and Grifts.
Things are handed out too fast.

I do not think it would work out that well since for the most part combat is quite quick except for against a main boss and I find that pets do a good job of attacking them.

For me I played Diablo 1 and Diablo 2 almost everyday and long hours at that. For the most part that was the only 2 games I played, especially when D2 was released. I played mostly mods since 2002/2003. I did not like playing online for the most part and preferred to play alone. I had to wait a month when Diablo 3 was released due to my financial situation and played for a few months but I was getting burnt out on Diablo games and ARPG's.
I also played Torchlight 1 and 2 for quite some time before and after Diablo 3 came out (Some of the staff at Runic Games came from Blizzard North including the Schaefer Brothers).
I came back to Diablo 3 from time to time as well as D2, Torchlight 1 and 2 and to an extent Grim Dawn over the years but it usually only last for a few days.
When the console version for Diablo 3 came out and I did get an Xbox 360 and then the Xbox one I got it for both consoles and I find the game is better on the Xbox One since I have no lag since I play offline and I can really play wacky characters like a melee Witch Doctor with no movement skills and no run speed and no pets just melee and passive skills. That was a fun character to play. Still I get burnt out on Diablo games and ARPG's.
At the moment I do have the itch but I have a feeling it will only be for a few days or so and then to some other game. A good part of the last few years it was Bethesda games but at the moment I am getting burnt out on them. At the moment I am more in the survival town building games like Stonehearth and Timber and Stone. Also I am starting to get an itch for Witcher 3 and Fallout 4 since they both got recent expansion/DLC.
I play games that I am having fun at the moment. Some games like Diablo 2 lasted a long time and is the game I played the most in my life, followed by 1987 Sid Meiers Pirates on the commodore 64 then 128 and then PC, and then Wing Commander Privateer.
I am not saying that I do not like Diablo 3 as much as Diablo 2. I do like both games but for me Diablo 3 came out at a time when I was getting burnt out on the genre and I do not know when or if ever will be at a stage that I am not burnt out or easily get burnt out on that genre. I do have fun playing Diablo 3 on both the PC and Xbox One when I get the itch to play the game but that itch does not last long. I might even get it for PS4 if I ever do get the PS4.
Just have fun playing whatever game you are playing and if you are no longer having fun take a break and do something else and come back when you get the itch to play the game.

There was still a lot of issues with that mod since the game is not designed for anything higher than 640/480. Yes even 800/600 is bugged since the AI for the monsters are designed for the classic Diablo II. The Zombies in the first area are the easiest monsters to see the difference.
It won't change because it's a lot of work to increase the resolution. Modders who did this also had to completely rework the interface because it breaks when increasing the resolution. Blizzard isn't putting that much work into D2 anymore. They only make sure it works on modern computers (and hopefully do something against spambots)
One of the hardest things to program is the AI and I doubt that Blizzard will be looking to improve on it since it is not worth the investment in it since the game is over 15 years. It is one thing to patch it to make it easier to have it running on newer OS. I have no problem with running patch 1.09 or 1.10 on Windows 10 since I prefer to play Diablo II with mods like Zy-El or Eastern Sun
Feb 2, 2016Posted in: Diablo II
The last version of the mod does not run well on the Mac. It is best to use boot camp and use the Windows version.
Also the game is designed for 1.10 and it needs the cd to be checked to function. There was a method to get it working with 1.12 but it was glitchy
Feb 1, 2016Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I have never played a public game and only have played with people I knew.
I did report account spammers looking for friendships when the auction houses were active to sell gold. At one point I think I was doing that about 10 times a day.
Also I do not play this game that much since for the most part my 10+ years of playing Diablo 2 has left me for the most part Diablod out.
Jan 31, 2016Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
... And there are no hacks, bots, thud, exploits, etc on the PC version.
Granted that gem of ease modded (exploited) gem did hurt other players by giving them a lot of paragon levels.
I have never played it online on my Xbox and have no desire to do so since to me the game is a lot more fun to play alone and in offline mode. I just hope Blizzard adds a feature that allows new characters not to share anything with the other characters (paragons, shared stash, artisans, gold, etc. Then I would be real happy.

I will likely try a Pet build that does not use any active skills and just lets the minions do the work. Will not use the Zuni set since that is dependent on casting. Helltooth might be used until I get quite a bit of Ancient gear to support the LoN set bonus.
I have been playing a build like yours in the PTR, I have not gotten that far since I only started the PTR not that long ago and was quite happy with the results and was able to do a level 40 without the best of gear. I was using a a cold pet doctor build everything was cold based so Bane of the trapped would be active and the cold acid cloud was only used if the pets needed the extra punch to kill faster (Elites+, and large groups of tough npcs). I used Cold Corpse Spiders as the main attack, I love that skill since even if the game is a bit laggy the spiders can still hit npcs.
Jan 6, 2016Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Does it matter if it is the best or not the best. Play the build that you want to play and have fun with it. Good luck.
I think it is likely one of the better builds and possibly people at the forum are down playing it so it does not get nerfed.
I am likely going to play a melee HC Witch Doctor build in the upcoming season, likely will be in last place but that does not matter as long as I am having fun with the build.
Softcore will likely have a Cold Corpse Spider Pet Doctor using Helltooth Set.

Not a joke.
Diablo 3 is my least favorite diablo game. The issue was not with Jay it was more with Blizzard. At the moment the game feels less like a diablo game with each patch. Some parts have improved but a lot more has become like an MMO Light.
Jay had one of the toughest jobs as a developer and he was damned if he did and damned if he did not and I think he handle it well. He has my respect as a person. It would have likely worked out much better if the game was not known to the public for about 4 years before the release. That just fueled up the nuclear firestorm that followed. The one that replaced him did not do as good as a job.

What facebook is still around I thought it died a few years ago.
Sorry to hear about Jay Wilson. I miss his version of Diablo 3 especially Infernal Difficulty. At least I still have it on my vanilla xbox 360 which I do not update it.

Diablo 1 the vendors did have some useful things since some blues could roll high stats that uniques or rares could never roll.

I have tonnes of issues with the D3 Launcher especially when it has done an update, Quite often I have to uninstall the game and reinstall it (Good thing I have the disk since I do have a limited bandwidth for downloads).
Jun 11, 2013Hans posted a message on All Items Will Have a Use, Latency Issues with Whirlwind, Blue Posts, Blizzcon Art and Movie ContestsI really do not see them fixing itemization until the expansion comes out since likely the whole system needs to be worked and re-worked again.Posted in: News
In regards to having the follower pick up things is not needed. What would be better is they bring back the option to either sell gear or to salvage the gear outside of town(that option was in the ealry stages of the Beta). Since now with so many things dropping your inventory gets full in no time with blues and rares.
Crafting is for the most part a joke unless you have the best high end plans and get really lucky on the rolls. But the cost involved with getting a good or better item from crafting will likely cost much more than just going to the AH and scrounge for deals. I prefer to find the gear myself since I find the Auction House really boring, If I found that exciting then I would be doing that in real life and get more money doing that.
First of all Crafting would need more plans and I am thinking that there should be rare one use recipes with some rare affixes on them. I started a few low level characters since these types of games I prefer to create new characters after betting normal since I usually get bored with characters. The crafting recipes are really useless for low level or starting characters for the most part. There are a few nice low level 3 affix magic items and they help out alot if you get lucky but still cost quite a bit of matterials to make but you are not concerned about rolling a kickass item at that point.
Affixes need to be worked on and re-worked again until it really offers more than just a few that are must haves. Right now since all damage based skills are based on DPS, That means all gear are looking to improve that factor with hopefully some defensive affixes to round out the character but some of the devensive affixes also has a defensive effect depending on the class. I think it might be time to nerf or get rid of stats(Strength, Vitality, etc) on gear or only have them available on a limited number of slots. I would even go to the point to having more stats based on leveling up or with the paragon levels. Another option would to have special runes drop that can be added to the skill you are using (they would only roll with stats and or bonuses to skills), Blizzard was working on a system like this but decided it was too complex, But my suggestion is not that complex and it would open up more options for gear and also more things to find in the game.
We need to have junky or crappy items every game in this genre have it and it is there since this game genre is based on finding the best gear with the best affixes on them or for affixes for a build you are making. The problem is that there are not that many good affixes out there and the few that are nice get overshadowed by the mega must have affixes.
The last thing is to bring back the Mystic Artisan and have the option to add sockets to gear and to boost gear with some expensive recipes or finding one time recipes to boost an item.
Jun 11, 2013Hans posted a message on Exclusive Items for D3 on the PS3 and PS4, Launcher Update, Blue Posts, Video Games Live in IrvineI really hate the exclusive items and crap that comes with games, especially the special preorder and the small paid item dlcs.Posted in: News
I do not have a console and the only reason I would get D3 on the console if it was truly offline. Since I have a terrible connection to bnet and it makes me mad that I can not really enjoy the game. I came back last week to D3 and the improvements are nice but I have terrible lag and latency. I usually have over 1k and sometimes it gets up to 6k. I am trying to build and gear a character that would be able to play with that much lag and the closest would be the summoning WD with thorns. Sofar it is going well in Hell but still die to lag elites and it is a real pain to Act Bosses.
I think it is a bad idea to have one launcher for all of blizzards games.
Jul 19, 2012My expectations for the game is that the game will get worse and not better at least for the foreseeable future.Posted in: News
To me Blizzard has lost the magic touch for creating a fun game that lasts for a long time. D3 was fun up to late hell for the first character but after that the game is just boring.
I would love D3 to be fun but it just isn't fun for me. I have gone back to D2 and Torchlight. I had tonnes of fun with Torchlight 2 Beta and likely will play TL2 for a long time when it is released.
I might still log in from time to time to see if it is fun for me once again.
May 25, 2012Hans posted a message on RMAH Delayed, Hotfixes, Battle.net Balance Reminder, Constructive Posting, Blue Posts, and Thorns AffixHaving the highest amount of thorn damage will help with the DPS if you can take the hits and survive. Especially if you are using a single target skill since the thorns will damage any melee hit done to you.Posted in: News
The thing is whether or not other stats would be more useful to your character.

5 times trying to download the launcher and it says it is for beta but the launcher is for the full game.
I tried directly from battle.net.
I have had issues with the setup part hanging. I have had issues with a file missing, When that is solved the launcher than states it is for the full version.
I think this is what they mean for Open Beta for me is.
Apr 5, 2011Posted in: NewsQuote from bleakparta
That's along the lines I was going to write yesterday. But. A quote from ScyberDragon's original post above: "If you were able to salvage set items for materials to make items of a different set, this could help players control the ability to obtain a full set." So, if you happen to find one piece from Set X and another from Set Y and decide to salvage them for materials to create pieces for Set Z, one named after your character (or anything you wish), would the newly made set pieces carry the same stats the original ones did? If one of the original pieces was from a five-piece and the other from a three-piece set, for example, then how many pieces the new "Hero set" would require? And what about the bonuses granted by wearing the full set? How would they be generated?Quote from Hans
Not is if the set is named after the Hero and is created for the Hero and only that Hero can use the set.
I hope you get what I mean. :sweat:
You can get scrolls or have the Artisan have options for the number of pieces of the set and what pieces to be used. The more pieces and the type of pieces used will determine the cost. Some of the mods can be picked and again the cost can vary based on the mods picked. Most of the mods would be randomly generated. You may get lucky and get a great set or you might get unlucky and need to try again. The sets should be able to compete with great gear but it should not be guaranteed to be the best.
