    posted a message on Hall of Shame - ilvl 63 edition
    I usually co-op when I'm farming - to spice things up, at the end of the run my buddies and I like to place bets on who got the worst ilvl 63 item. As you can imagine there can be some pretty funny results as we consider the stats, slot, and even the name on some atrocious rolls.

    Here's one of my recent candidates:


    Have you guys come across some truly terrible ilvl 63 items? Please share!

    We definitely need to move to a template. Marintha started the whole thing basically but it's a mess now I agree. What we need is:

    - category
    - description
    - name
    - next and previous achv (if it's a progression one)
    - points it awards
    - reward
    (anything else?)

    meaning, we need a data page for each achv. Templates can then be used like we do with the items to pull up the info and put it into tables for those meta achvs.

    I'll see if we can also get our hands on the icon art for the achv and their respective rewards.

    posted a message on Can Revenge proc on dodge?
    It doesn't proc off dodges. The spell trigger requires getting hit, so if you dodge an attack it won't proc.

    Quote from Bloccstyle

    I used to think that revenge should proc on dodged hits otherwise dodge heavy builds would be screwed out of using the skill

    Probably of least concern considering that Dex is not a primary stat and there are no skills that boost dodge for the Barbarian class.

    posted a message on A travel guide to the Beta
    About a day of the Open Beta to go, but it's not too late to get a chance to see all the awesome things in Diablo 3. As has always been the case with all Diablo games and recently mentioned Blizzcast 17, the replay value of Diablo 3 is high because of the map generation and randomization of game elements (items, monsters, events). Make sure you get a chance to see all the interesting things, so here are some that you might have missed:

    Event Quests: these are quests that are not usually part of the main storyline. You can run across them in the wild and sometimes they will be in specific locations.
    - DiabloWiki.com - The Matriarch's Bones The Matriarch's Bones
    - DiabloWiki.com - Jar of Souls Jar of Souls (my personal favorite)
    How to find them: they will only spawn in the non-empty false Defiled Crypt at the Cemetery of the Forsaken. Only one of the two event quests will spawn in the same game.

    Den of the Fallen: a huge 2-leveled cave that spawns in the Weeping Hollow with some very interesting monsters that can't be found elsewhere in the Beta. Any D2 vets will recognize the easter eggs in this area. There's a 20% chance the game has decided to spawn this for you, so keep trying if you can't find it.
    How to find it: leave town from the Northwest gate, and head NW in a straight line three tiles, then one tile NE, cross the path and check the last tile there. What's a tile? Here's a picture where the red tiles are the ones you want to check.

    Resplendent Chests: glittery golden chests that spews tons of loot all over the place when opened - something you definitely don't want to pass up on. There's only two locations you can find these now and one of them comes with a little surprise.
    How to find them:
    - the first one you can come across is actually on the second level of the Den of the Fallen.
    - the next one can be found on Cathedral Level 4. From the entrance head through the first doorway and then take a right. Head all the way to the NE-most tile. If it's not there you'll need to try again.

    Unique Monsters: There are a ton of unique monsters in Diablo 3 and definitely no shortage of them in the Beta. They tend to have special abilities that you might not normally see on elite packs, so it's always exciting to come across them.
    - list of all the uniques in the Beta and their locations: DiabloWiki.com - Unique Monsters Unique Monsters

    Black Mushroom:‚Äč originally dropped from the Cauldron in Adria's Cellar, but can now be found on Cathedral Level 1. What does it do? It's not certain yet but they will undoubtedly be the biggest mushrooms you'll ever see in Santuary. DiabloWiki.com - Black Mushroom Black Mushroom

    Journals: scattered throughout the game are small journals that give us a glimpse into the life of the people surrounding Santuary. Keep an eye out for Old Keepsake Boxes and Scribe's Lecterns. You also get an XP reward per journal found.
    How to find them:
    - Old Keepsake Boxes can be found along the Old Tristram Road and in The Old Ruins
    - Scribe's Lecturns can be found on any level of the Cathedral and in the Royal Crypts
    - One journal in particular can be found in the Weeping Hollow (follow the Den of the Fallen search path mentioned earlier). DiabloWiki.com - The Hanging Tree The Hanging Tree
    - after completing DiabloWiki.com - A Shattered Crown A Shattered Crown check out the Blacksmith's Belongings container near the Blacksmith
    - Leah's Journals can only be found in her room (attached to the inn). The 1st one can only be obtained before completing The Fallen Star quest. The 2nd one can only be obtained after leading Leah into The Hidden Cellar and before fully completing The Legacy of Cain quest. And the 3rd one can only be obtained after completing The Legacy of Cain quest.
    - Cain's Journals can be found in his house in New Tristram. The 1st one can only be obtained before starting the Reign of the Black King quest. The 2nd can be obtained during the final quest.

    Hope this helps make the most of your Beta experience. Happy exploring!

    (ty Dretar for pointing out the conditions for Leah's Journal, Part 2)

    ^It's not that low. I bet it's 1/4 or so. Or maybe I'm just lucky.

    It's 20% ;)

    I got a +2-4dmg ring in the Den.

    Oh good! I was trying to confirm if my suspicions on the rings were true. Glad to hear you got one - and a pretty nice one too.

    I've been doing a lot of Den of the Fallen 'runs' myself, and I've seen it spawn in at LEAST three different tiles, so you may want to update the main post :P.

    There are at most five tiles where you could get the Den. What do you mean?

    Edit: ok let me clarify: the Den can spawn in 1 of 5 non-path tiles, or 1 of the 2 event tiles.

    btw, setting your quest to the second part of "A Shattered Crown" should place you closer to the Den of Fallen by taking advantage of the checkpoint right outside of the Northwest gate.
