    posted a message on PTR Insane New Legendaries Showcase - Video

    Hell yes its OP when one proc nearly tripples your damage. Its the difference between sucking ass on Master difficult and melting everything on your path :)

    posted a message on PTR Insane New Legendaries Showcase - Video

    After finding some insane legendaries thus far in PTR I decided to make a video of the most OP new items.This one is of my DH after finding a crossbow with a crazy proc which deals 2-4k dmg and has over 60% proc chance. At lvl 30 my normal dmg is 1k.

    Paired with Rapid Fire my DH is converted into a flamethrowing machine, boosting DPS into stratospheric levels allowing me to melt the Butcher on Master difficult in under a minute..

    Enjoy!

    Would be weird not to have adventure mode in vanila. They said that they dont like the idea of making people play through the story 3 times before endgame yet its what people who purchase D3 without the expansion will experience unless adventure mode is vailable to all.

    With Friends and family beta underway closed beta will be the next stage of RoS testing and will begin this year (as announced by Blizz).
    Another announcement said that around the time of closed beta Public 2.0.1 test realm will be opened allowing those without beta keys to try new content.

    Now as far as I know closed beta will be same as family beta which is all RoS content except last boss.

    2.0.1 PTR will feature "updates including Paragon 2.0, Loot 2.0, our new difficulty system, the addition of Clans and Communities, as well as balancing and tuning for all five Diablo III classes."

    So in essence 2.0.1 PTR will be exactly the same as RoS beta except no Crusader and no Act5.

    Or am I missing something?

    posted a message on Diablo III Auction House is Shutting Down on March 18, 2014
    Great news. Il be coming back to Diablo now, and on pc not console ( where save files will be exploited like hell). If anyone played D2 you know window trading is fine. You only trade best items, and window is sufficent. I barely traded 20 items a week in d2. Its all about actually playing, trade was small part of D2. With removal of AH people will stop spending half their playtime looking at auctions

    posted a message on Exclusive Fansite Console Info From Blizzard HQ
    I dont get why you jump on legendary drop rate, the real interesting info is :

    There are anti-dupe mechanisms in place, but Blizzard knows they'll eventually be overcome

    Duping is biggest concern here, especially since offline/online characters are mixed. If there are no measures essentually you wont be able to play online. As soon as you join a game you have people with insane duped gear spoiling all fun. As soon as you try to trade you will receive ton of duped freebie items probably for free even. And playing offline only is taking half of game away.

    Now we know that there is a mechanism, perhaps save file encryption. Second part of sentance suggests that Blizz will not advance this protection when eventually save files are eddited. Which is fair enough. Real question is how long will it take? The longer the game is dupe free the more enjoyment I will get out of it.

    posted a message on Console Version Will Make me return to Diablo
    Quote from Vulmio




    And after a while it becomes almost impossible to find better items for your character without using the AH.

    I disagree. Like I said in my original post the problem with loot (core of the game) is the AH. If you exclude AH completely you will find upgrades for your own characters consistently.

    With AH any potential upgrade you find is matched against millions of items in AH making that item worthless, making you jump 10x upgrades by buying good item on AH, then finding those previous 10 upgrades yourself and discarding them simply because you bypassed the whole processed by using AH.

    Console versions will have trade, so items that dont suit your character can be swapped. However I dont even see the point in trade if offline/online characters are mixed and duping is at large. People will dupe 100x of an item and go out and trade, an experience that I dont want to be a part of any more than browsing the AH.

    Simple fact is:
    Finding your own items, upgrades etc through playing = FUN
    Creating/being given duped items that are generated in 10 sec = NOT FUN
    Obtaining items you didnt find on AH = NOT FUN

    Therefore in the end even the console version doesnt fix anything. And playing exclusivelly alone, online is robing half of gameplay experience. I dont know how or if this will ever be adressed so we might never experience true potential of Diablo3.

    Yeah, there will be no AH on the console version...

    ... but endless duping thanks to the quick and easy USB backup. It's gonna be like D2 non-ladder offline mode, after some hundred hours you just get bored and get a duped version of this awesome weapon from your friend. Or worse, within a few days awesome save games will be available online just like in Torchlight 2.

    And don't say "I'm not gonna do that" - if you can resist the temptation to cheat by duping items offline, you can also resist to use the auction house.

    But thanks for letting us know and have fun with the console version.

    I made my post thinking console version will have a seperate offline/online mode where online characters are stored online rather than offline. Upon doing some research and discovering that it will not be the case i withdraw my post.

    To me now console version seems redundant

    posted a message on Console Version Will Make me return to Diablo
    I've stopped playing diablo for over 6 months now, the main reason is the core of the game - finding loot felt pointless. Every item drop for my character is in competition with 1,000,000 of other items that dropped that very second for all other players. What chance does my drop have to be decent when you look at all other drops? Literally none.

    And thats what AH did, it made my loot directly worse by putting it up against drops of millions of other players.

    Console version will make loot so much better, because if I find decent ring I wont be able to go on AH and discover that my decent ring is actually pretty mediocre and I can actually buy this better ring for myself from AH and just discard the ring I found.

    No I find an upgrade ring and Im gona be very happy and this will happen throughout the game, finding my own upgrades and only bothering to trade really high end items or items for other classes.Plus botting wont be such a huge problem on console as you cant run 10 instances of game on one machine.

    So I am really looking forward to paying console version.

    As for the PC version there is no chance I am coming back.

    posted a message on Console Version of Diablo 3: Offline Play, No RMAH, Not Exclusive to Sony, Hands On Console Gameplay
    Ive quit Diablo 3 many months ago, and have no intention to go back and play on PC. Infact I rather play Diablo 2.


    Offline and no AH + console? That actually sounds tempting. Add couch multiplayer and you have yourself a returned customer.

    "While there are certainly some faster kills out there this seems to be one of the fastest Monk kills."

    Umm no thats the fastest mp10 azmodan kill out of all classes, its world record.
