    posted a message on Follower sets, should we have them? Do you want them?

    Literally all I want is for followers to convert core stats to their preferred type. For instance, It's really frustrating to gear out an Enchantress as a Demon Hunter. Granted, it's much easier now with the cube, as all you have to do is farm up some mats and level a Wizard to 70, then re-roll the item until it suits your needs, but even that just feels like an unnecessary time-sink. The odds of me finding the optimal gear for one are low enough as-is, (especially something like a Thunderfury with IAS and CDR...) much less getting ancient versions of them.


    That said, I would LOVE if the "Cannot Die" relics weren't mandatory. It just feels so pointless have the other two options considering they just instantly pop no matter how decked out they are. I understand that they shouldn't be as powerful as players, and that they'll never be anywhere close to as powerful as their D2 counterparts, but I'd still like to have options. While we're at it though, Blizzard really needs to update the info tabs for followers to include CDR. We all know it works, so why isn't it present? Silly :P

    RCR -> Area Damage. There's really no other option.

    Extremely easy with Yangs, DML, Cindercoat, and FNR. The rest of the pieces honestly don't even matter.


    SS: http://imgur.com/U2vDzO5


    Build: Evasive - Focus, Multi - Arsenal, Bat, Vault, Prep - Punish, Seethe.

    Passives: Awareness, Ambush, Cull, Ballistics, Steady Aim (Hellfire)

    Gems: Stricken, Trapped, Zei's (all at 50+)

    Cube: Calamity, Hexing, Convention.

    Follower: Enchantress with Thunderfury + Occculus Ring + Ess of Johan. (She has Unity but I'm not using it cuz the damage @40 is laughable)

    posted a message on Logitech G keyboard OK for auto pres?

    I have been using mouse and keyboard macros with Logitech hardware on Blizzard games since basically forever. Do you remember CM Wizards? Hell most of them used AHK scripts for years due to the spec being borderline unplayable without them. Nothing will happen.

    Quote from Alkago-next

    I got a good one in stash, definitely will try out as soon as I acquire all the set pieces. spike trap/caltrop combo could also worth a try. Backards kiting might become tedious sometimes though..

    It was the only way I could get the multishot build into GR50 on PTR. The lures stop everything dead in their tracks and the only dudes it won't work on (yellows) you'll probably be trying to skip anyways. I was running Odyssey's End with Entangling Shot + Cull the Weak + Mark for Death for some seriously stupid numbers (3b+ crits on RG's with suboptimal gear), but Chanon eventually took over simply for consistencies sake. Calamity or Balefire are also solid options but both require the Nightstalker passive and neither help the survivability issue.


    The caltrop belt is pretty nifty too, but I kept going back to TWH. It's a very nice placeholder though.

    posted a message on New Demon Hunter set broken out of its mind?

    Play with F/R, Krider, and MBolts. Phil just got gr 51 down with fairly suboptimal gear.


    That said, the build is stupid fast in t6 as MS:A with Cindercoat, but really struggles in 40+. Maybe if I get lucky and nab a Ancient Calamity, I can push higher, but I'm pretty stuck at the moment. Phys M6 is just soooo much easier to play.

    posted a message on Blizzcon 2014 - NEW DH SET
    Welp, this is 100% tailor made for Hungering Arrow, and I don't think any other spec can really use this as effectively. While it'll be interesting to see if the HA/MS Burzia build can compete, I was really hoping to see the Bola build get some love. Oh well, can't win them all :P

    posted a message on Your feelings about the upcoming changes to OWE and STI
    Step in the right direction. Dex buff means ~20% gain in damage reduction, OWE change is about a 10% loss in damage reduction. Net gain and lessened gear requirements is a good thing imo.

    I suppose it's a nerf to the zDPS monks running around with 10k paper damage and 40m toughness, but let's face it: The spec is overkill, and losing a bit of resist isn't going to bury it. You will still pull and bomb things while taking no damage.

    Also, I'll put money on them changing all healing stats into secondary affix. That alone would be massive for every classes ability to sustain (looking at high tier greater rift levels).

    posted a message on Exploding Monk - a T6 (Sanwuko) capable build
    You don't need to stack Holy with Sunwuko's. Physical dual wield works beautifully, case in point:

    That's a 1shot T6 RG. Difficult to set up or not, that's insane.

    posted a message on Viable non-Mara builds past T4?
    M6 is the only spec that can farm T6. CA Cycle can do it, but it's VERY gear intensive and squishy. Sorry :(

    And CA is dead come 2.1 with the removal of Punish/Suppression, so we'll have to wait and see what new "enabler" legendaries are available.

    Akarat's Champion is NOT a mandatory in any build
    /facepalm
    I don't particularly like people who don't bother to read the whole post before answering. I like people who just outright stop reading at some point for some arbetrary reason even less. Then there are those, who take things way out of context... You'd make a nice news reporter for the gossip magazines.

    In the unlikely event that you're not as ignorant as you seem to be, I will clarify: no non-6pc Akkhan's set build relies on it, and non-6pc Akkhan's set build is made around that ability. As I said, the endgame 6pc Akkhan's set builds are a whole different beast, but that's what I referred to earlier: Akarat's Champion being mandatory is only a problem with the set, not the skill itself.
    Minus the part where AC is mandatory in a Firestarter build... considering that's where it gets its namesake lol. The set obviously makes it completely ridiculous, however. And this is where i draw the comparison:

    Gutting Prep:Punish would be like gutting AC:FS, it makes zero sense to do so. You just removed a viable, albeit lower tier, spec for no real reason. Now say they added a set or legendary that returns it to the previous state, or at least makes it a toned down version of semi-viable (think Woh vs Vanilla CM), and you've done a whole bunch of work running in circles for literally no reason. Punish isn't overpowered just the same as Firestarter isn't overpowered. Which is why some of us are pretty upset about it. Why are we investing resources into nerfing interesting and challenging aspects of the game, versus promoting alternatives.



    At the end of the day, it really doesn't matter. We have a PTR, and thus ~6 months of testing to prove how terribly stupid the change is.

    Does anyone know what will be done with Paragon experience after Season's End, will it be added to non-seasonal Paragon experience?
    Yes. It rolls over to your non-ladder total.
