I chose this build, which I call my Magic Find build. It focuses on increasing movement speed (i.e. through Frenzy) as well as ignoring damage, while also utilizing powerful damage abilities like charge and seismic slam.
It is super effective!

The screenshots are from the D3 Emulator that has been followed by several of you here.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The latest version allows you to use the waypoint system to access most of the zones in Act 1.
It is easily doable by any of you here if you want to check it out for yourself. Exciting at first, but nothing special once you walk through it all.

If the price is correct, the collectors edition will cost $40 more dollars.
For all the extra items, do you guys think this is pretty good deal?

I was looking at the D3 Beta Key Sweepstakes and noticed that there are around 1.4 million likes on its Facebook page. https://www.facebook.com/Diablo?sk=app_6009294086
That number seemed particularly high to me and got me thinking.
Does anyone think that D3 will break any gaming sales records?
Anyone want to make any predictions on how many copies will be sold in the first day/week/month?
I think a 100k or so will be sold in the first week(sold, rather they can play it right after purchase, is another thing all together), so I don't think D3 will break any reccords.
If by chance they release a console version at the same time, it could be a hell of a lot more then that, but I still don't think the numbers would be record breaking(although the numbers would be high up there).
100k in the first week?
SC2 sold 2 million on the first day. I think you're lowballing your number there.

PM'd numbers to you for some of your gaps.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Please refer to this thread for future numbers. It is more reliable than D3 and it has been maintained for a few weeks now.
Edit: Honestly, I would refer to this thread and go back and double check your numbers. For example, on October 4th you have 26 people listed as online. While this implies a wave having gone out, this is far different from the data provided by the OP of the thread (who is a beta tester), in that he lists Oct. 4th as:
October 4 - 7:37 PM: 56 players || 9:31 PM: 88 players
I believe this points to your information being wrong, particularly considering how unreliable and abused D3inv is.
Edit Again: I apologize. I misunderstood the Blue line as being EU data only, not Arto's data. My mistake. With that said, I would forego D3inv data entirely and utilize only Arto's data for simplicity of the graph.

Page 2 of the thread I linked in the OP.
Seems like no one ever commented on the 1,000 keys... urgh. I apologize.
The 1,000 Diablo III keys promised to attendees of BlizzCon 2010 were indeed distributed some weeks ago during one of the waves, and it was through the normal 'license added to account' process (no actual keys were distributed).
Yes, they have gone out already.

Bad thread I guess. =X

uh... ok? why is that an interesting statement to make.
I'm glad you asked. I consider it surprising for 2 reasons.
1) Up until now, a small amount of people have claimed on the forums that they got in through Opt-In, leading the community as a whole to believe that Wave 1 was a insignificant amount.
2) This statement implies the opposite, in that Wave 1 was actually so large that it was bigger than Blizzcon, F&F, Media, and Contests combined. Not more than one of those. All of them put together are still not as large as Wave 1.
It's just a statement against the general perception that the community had, or at least from what I've read. I don't think saying that it is an interesting statement as a result is a far-fetched opinion but is a suitable prompt for discussion.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionWe have invited more "general public" people from opt-ins than all other sources combined.
Interesting statement to make.

Exactly how I feel.
I've been waiting 10 years to get my hands on this game and to have it dangled in my face like a piece of meat makes me feel disgusted. And with someone like Bashiok at the helm of communication doesn't make the lack of access or information any easier to deal. His constant "we're better than you" attitude just makes me feel like punching someone in the face.
As like you have mentioned, I will still buy the game. No longer out of pure anticipation, but rather out of a "I should still at least try it out", kinda thing. Much like I've done with the last COD Black-Ops release. And unless they blow my socks off immediately after release, I don't see my self playing the game for very long.
Your post is dripping with entitlement. For starters, I've never felt that Bashiok's post are ones of smugness or arrogance. He keeps it light, and I always see it as him trying to build camaraderie with the posters. You need to realize that the meanings of some things are entirely based on how you read it.
Next, I don't understand your reaction to not being able to play the beta. Let me ask you this. If there was a million users in beta, and you didn't get in, would you still react with the same disgusted feeling? The problem is that you feel as if you deserve a spot, or at least that Blizzard is doing some great punitive disservice to their fans. It's their beta. They can put in however many users they want, whether its 50 or 500. It is an incorrect notion to believe that the players have the control or are owed anything as Blizzard tries to develop the game that they have invested money and resources into for the last several years. Honestly, it is this entitlement that makes these arguments irritating to read and redundant to see on the forums. I am not of course attacking the main idea of the thread, as I think it's fair to evaluate Blizzard's timing.
