    posted a message on Yang's re-roll help thanks.

    Yeah, last I checked d3planner doesn't even try to work out the bonus from 6pc UE, so you have to work that out yourself manually.

    posted a message on Yang's re-roll help thanks.

    I'd agree with Griffin, on both points. The legendary bonus is very low, so unless it's your only Ancient Yang's, I wouldn't even use it. If it is the only one, change the disc to +12 definitely. It's simply the best choice.

    posted a message on Question about Damage Calculation DH

    If you find your toughness is too low then you can switch to the Endless Walk set (Traveller's Pledge and Compass Rose) and then use both Convention of Elements and Elusive Ring. It will increase your toughness considerably, but will lower your damage compared with Bastion of Will.


    At the moment I'm using Elusive Ring instead of Convention of Elements, mainly because I find CoE to be too unreliable. While the damage from CoE is very nice, the toughness from Elusive Ring is too good to pass up, especially since your damage while dead is 0.

    Basically, the extra Disc from SoJ is additive, and Bastion set is multiplicative, not just with the Disc bonus, but with each other, so Bastion will always be better.


    As BlackcurseLT said, if you're going from 85 Disc to 95, you're changing the bonus from 8,500% to 9,500%, but if you use the Bastion set, you're going from 8,500% to 19,125%, with both buffs active.


    Even if you include the damage to elites and elemental damage from the SoJ (assuming you have none from any other source) the best bonus you could get is 14,820% - and you have to remember that by using a SoJ you're also sacrificing CHC and CHD which will severely nerf your damage too.


    It's simply impossible for any SoJ build (even combined with Endless Walk) to compete in damage with the Bastion set.

    They should just start using UTC and be done with it. Then anyone can convert that to their local time very easily.

    Yeah, have been expecting it to show up for a while. They definitely used to put it up.

    posted a message on Shadow impale or Multishot UE for DB farming?

    Even in the last season, I would typically earn more DB's with UE than Impale, but then that could be because I just don't really like Impale and find it awkward to play. But since UE received such a huge buff this patch, I expect it will have become far superior for sure.

    posted a message on Anyone with a Sharkzone K30? Macro help

    The numlock trick does work with multiple skills. Whenever I bother using it, I use it for 2 skills at a time on my DH. Normally I don't bother though as it's really annoying to turn it off after every GR - otherwise I can't TP.


    And I would avoid using macros to loop button presses. Blizzard could construe that as 3rd party automation and ban you. It's unlikely to happen, but it's a possibility.

    posted a message on Is this for real???
    Quote from Abobgo-next

    On a slightly related note has anyone else noticed this patch appears to have lower rates of proccing Ancients using the cube to either upgrade to legendary or reroll legendary?

    For the former im seeing about 1 in 15 at best and the latter seems broken at best - I used 350 bounty mats to get a single ancient Yangs, (70 rerolls) and a further 250 (50 rerolls) got me just 1 more item as Ancient.

    No, actually, quite the opposite. A couple of days ago I rerolled a Dead Man's Legacy in the cube and it gave me an ancient item 6 times in a row. They all sucked, but yeah.

    posted a message on DH 2.6.1 Stone of Jordan benefit

    No matter which way you look at it, SoJ still underperforms because everything is pretty much multiplicative. The change from 40% to 100% per Disc bumps up everything, not just SoJ.


    FnR + HfA with a good passive still works out as the best damage.

    posted a message on Necromancer on sale for 9.99

    Nice to see, but I don't think I'll be buying it yet, not unless they go cheaper. I'm fairly certain I simply won't enjoy the class, so not worth it for me.

    It's their reason for locking the leaderboards.

    posted a message on Plans for Season 12

    Pretty much the same for me as every season. Multishot DH. It's even more likely now that it's been buffed, finally. Now I won't need to play Shadow for the higher GR's.

    posted a message on Late to the party

    I wouldn't say there's a standard procedure, I mean, the vast majority of people have completed the campaign at least once to access adventure mode already.

    Am sure if you were to ask in general chat, someone might be willing though.

    Pretty sure you only need to complete the final quest in act 5, if you can get someone to boost you for it. And, you only need to do it once (total).
