    Quote from Medz

    ...
    I'm assuming your main character don't mean your first character, because I'm pretty sure you spent more than 50 hours on the game to first buy the gear your WD is wearing and to know enough to gear him out with 2k+ regen and 700 AR. And be able to have so much extra cash that you're spending 200K for gear for your enchantress, hell I've made over 50 million on the game and I'm too cheap to buy my follower any gear. One thing to say you're challenging yourself to see if you can kill butcher while AFK. Another to lie to say this is your first toon to 45 and you've done all this. At least not without, someone giving you all this gear, or you're the reason why the rest of us make money in the RMAH.
    Negative bro, I don't really play much, that's the whole point. I also have ~20 hrs barb, but I guess it hardly matters.
    Well I flip GAH items here and there to gain a few extra mils, but honestly everybody does that.

    Yesterday I've beat Act2 and was pleased, ready to try some cheesy techniques on Belial - with that cocky attitude I found out the hard way what exactly "Belial's enrage timer" means :( So yeah it seems this kind of stuff is not so easy to pull off later on :)

    There is another problem though, it seems that EU player-base is declining at a ferocious pace. If I look for int + vit + resists + life regen + something nice there is nothing to be found. Supply does not exist. I hope I'll find a challenge after all :D

    Oh hello hello.


    So I am indeed just a casual gamer. I say that for a reason because my main character has less than 50 hrs of playing time:



    Since WD is obviously not an overpowered class I roll with tanky build and specialize in crowd control.
    I do not like dying at all so all this time I was pimping my gear until very recently when I finally decided to seriously push through Inferno.
    Noticeably I had ~2300 life regen, ~6000 armor, ~700 resists plus I gave my enchantress a measly priced >1200 DPS + >100 INT two-hander (those go for as little as 200k in GAH) and continued my journey.

    I didn't quite realize how easy it all was until the very climax of Act1 which is ofc Butcher. It came to me that I didn't have to do much to kill him - in fact I literally didn't have to do anything.
    I tried again (this time recording) and went afk to grab some food:


    Video is obviously boring, it's there just to prove my point.
    So Diablo3 too easy or what?

    posted a message on Can color blind people not see Legendary items?
    Quote from Daemaro

    I don't know much about color blindness but I'd think he should be able to tell a shade difference. I guess it would look like a gray though maybe.

    This.

    I guess OP's friend may be trolling a little or has other kinds of vision impairment. Since I'm colorblind myself I've gone through various tests and there is no solid white (nor solid black) color there - essentially because all colorblind people distinguish it.
    Besides if one cannot tell the difference between pure white and a darker color he must be blind, not colorblind lol

    posted a message on Not Happy with Diablo 3? Get a refund.
    I seriously wonder if that can be abused like having a gaming party overnight and immediately after that asking for a refund.
    I'm planning to grab a copy when price drops, but my friends are too poor. I'm not trolling, a cleaner earns just over 200 euros every month and that's a full-time job so wtf :( No love for poor European countries

    posted a message on Non-rune skills are useless?
    So am I mistaken or are the non-rune skills actually nearly useless?
    That'd be a shame because every variation has some kind of a different stylistic approach and leaving pure skill simply underpowered (I feel it serves just as a placeholder until any rune is unlocked) is just wrong...

    posted a message on What annoys me in the beta
    Quote from CurseYouAll

    In order of annoyingness ;)

    1. Monsters and destroyable scenery fly like pinballs when struck. Looks very unrealistic and silly! Blizz, can you please tone down the physics a bit? It feels like Titan Quest!

    ...

    Yay, I was afraid I'm the only one who can't stand this!

    It caught my eye since very first F&F beta streams. It might be good for skeletons which don't have flesh and stuff, but not so much for other creatures. I mean after death (in particular situations) even your own hero barbarian flies with his arms and legs curling like those have no weight (like a rag-doll).
    So basically this weightlessness problem is not all about flying a lot, but also about how you fly and how you land.

    posted a message on EXACT skill number combo revealed
    Quote from brimg

    Skill combos = (25 choose 6) = 177,100

    Passive combos = (15 choose 3) = 455

    Rune combos = 5^6 = 15,625

    Total (multiply those) = 1,259,070,312,500 for each class


    Of course, right now each class does not have 25 actives and 15 passives.

    Real numbers here: http://www.diablofans.com/topic/27956-number-of-different-builds/

    Yes, bro. You're absolutely right on target and that should be the first post.

    -----

    Why? Because basically I saw 3 different methods in this thread. And method is equally correct even if, let's say, there suddenly are only 3 active/passive skills overall (I'll call active skills A, B, C and passives a, b, c), 2 (of each type) can be chosen, 3 different runes can be applied (I'll call them 1, 2, 3).

    Why don't we look at the outcomes?

    Quote from CJCKAR

    ...
    25* 5 x 24*5 x 23* 5 x 22*5 x 21*5 x 20*5. Since we have 6 slots. So that equals 1.992375e+12. Then add the passives. 15 passives. 3 at a time. 15 x 14 x 13. So our final product is 5.439184e+15 possible combinations
    ...

    (3*3 * 2*3) * (3 * 2) = 324


    Quote from CherubDown

    ...
    (25 choose 6) * (15 choose 3) * 30 = 593,775*455*30 = 8,105,028,750 possible combos.
    ...

    (3 choose 2) * (3 choose 2) * (2*3) = 3 * 3 * 6 = 54


    Quote from brimg

    ...
    Rune combos = 5^6 = 15,625
    ...
    My imaginary rune combos that way 3^2 = 9
    Final outcome 3 * 3 * 9 = 81

    -----

    Using basic programming one can easily generate the TRUE outcomes (and conceivable to human mind):
    A1 B1 a b, A1 B1 a c, A1 B1 b c, A1 C1 a b, A1 C1 a c, A1 C1 b c, B1 C1 a b, B1 C1 a c, B1 C1 b c,
    A1 B2 a b, A1 B2 a c, A1 B2 b c, A1 C2 a b, A1 C2 a c, A1 C2 b c, B1 C2 a b, B1 C2 a c, B1 C2 b c,
    A1 B3 a b, A1 B3 a c, A1 B3 b c, A1 C3 a b, A1 C3 a c, A1 C3 b c, B1 C3 a b, B1 C3 a c, B1 C3 b c,
    A2 B1 a b, A2 B1 a c, A2 B1 b c, A2 C1 a b, A2 C1 a c, A2 C1 b c, B2 C1 a b, B2 C1 a c, B2 C1 b c,
    A2 B2 a b, A2 B2 a c, A2 B2 b c, A2 C2 a b, A2 C2 a c, A2 C2 b c, B2 C2 a b, B2 C2 a c, B2 C2 b c,
    A2 B3 a b, A2 B3 a c, A2 B3 b c, A2 C3 a b, A2 C3 a c, A2 C3 b c, B2 C3 a b, B2 C3 a c, B2 C3 b c,
    A3 B1 a b, A3 B1 a c, A3 B1 b c, A3 C1 a b, A3 C1 a c, A3 C1 b c, B3 C1 a b, B3 C1 a c, B3 C1 b c,
    A3 B2 a b, A3 B2 a c, A3 B2 b c, A3 C2 a b, A3 C2 a c, A3 C2 b c, B3 C2 a b, B3 C2 a c, B3 C2 b c,
    A3 B3 a b, A3 B3 a c, A3 B3 b c, A3 C3 a b, A3 C3 a c, A3 C3 b c, B3 C3 a b, B3 C3 a c, B3 C3 b c,
    Total entries: 81

    dude, thats the point. I intentionally collected info from my old laptop believing I'd have slightly better chances then :)

    Yeah but those guys aren't totaly clueless about the requirements of their own game. I mean starcraft needs minimum 128MB video ram, so with less than that reported, you may cut your wings. I can't imagine D3 to require less than 128MB.

    I actually checked to make sure SC2 could run smoothly using low settings (didn't bother to try anything higher though) and it indeed did like a charm. since I don't believe D3 could require much more than that (especially on lower resolutions) I concluded that it maybe gives me pretty much better chances than respectable up-to-date machine similar to ones majority of enthusiast gamers own.

    is it just me thinking that due to the blizzard-might-want-as-much-different-systems-as-possible thing it may be smarter to collect info from your old-ass system (and I dont mean like ancient old, lets say 4 years old or so) rather than modern gaming rig?

    I did exactly that


    btw it sees only one windows partition instead of whole HDD, that kind of unfair
