    Lucked out! 5th run was the ticket. Took me less than 10 minutes to get. Then I found my Falcon wings on my 3rd run. RNG usually doesn't treat me that well lol, must have felt sorry for me last night :)

    "I'm a casual"...................


    Profile shows he's been playing 21 hours a day since the start of the season.


    rebirth maybe?

    think before talking , maybe?
    Why so caustic? It has nothing to do with "thinking" but rather a trivial piece of information that the poster was not privy to (that the cumulative time played carries over on a rebirthed character.) I'm sure it's more of a generational thing, but the animosity and overarching rudeness so prevalent today really bothers me (not that you would care as that is part of the disconnection everyone seems to have for their fellow man.) Does it help you feel better/smarter to respond like that?

    posted a message on lags are enormous, will they continue in 2.5?

    Why are you asking us? Logic would dictate that with the Season ending, players are logging in that may not have logged on for awhile to claim those items gained during the season and to organize their stash. They may also want to play around with their chars now that the Paragon points gained during seasons are now added to their non seasonal chars. BTW, my latency is around 120ms and I haven't noticed any lag at all.

    posted a message on Getting a strange problem with my Blizzard games. Need advice

    PC might be overheating. I know on my laptop I can play other games fine for extended periods but for D3, if I don't use a cooling fan the game slows to a crawl after about 15 minutes and the system fan sounds like a jet ready to take off lol.

    posted a message on Cube idiocy!

    Wasted about 1200 DB's this season trying to get Calamity to cube and realized there is a difference between Crossbow and Hand Crossbow. Probably shouldn't have been doing it at 2am in the morning when I was barely awake lol.

    posted a message on Staff of Herding

    Blizz didn't remove the Staff of Herding mats. In fact I got lucky and grabbed the Gibbering Gemstone the first day of Season 4 so I took some time and gathered the other items and now I have my staff :)

    posted a message on Getting the Furnace is complete BS.

    I lucked out the first day of Season 4 and found one when I was level 43 and leveling up my first Season 4 char to 70. Had to wait until I leveled up a bit though to cube it obviously lol. After that I've found one more so far. Both Furnaces I found using my Barb.

    The bottom line for me is leader boards are stupid, in a game with so much RNG that much of your progress is dictated by luck or time. Good luck + ability too play massive number of hours is not competition IMHO.
    I don't care about leaderboards either (except to get an idea of how the characters are geared and what skills they incorporate which has been educational.) It would be great to be able to base a leaderboard on skill level but what criteria would you use to to accomplish that? Would the game say, "wow look at how fast Timmy kills elites and he's only played this char for xx amount of hours." That would be a huge hit on the servers to monitor and evaluate every player, 24 hours a day and try to calculate who should be "worthy" of the leaderboard. And even then, people would argue about whatever criteria might be used and what constitutes true "skill" vs. luck. A simple criteria like highest Grift completed makes sense even if it is not able to take into account "how much skill" it took to complete.

    posted a message on Is there any advantage to playing HC?
    Quote from HarleyMgo-next

    Quote from ruksak
    The truth is; HC is more of a challenge than Standard, this cannot be argued. It isn't up for debate.

    The game isn't more of a challenge, it just has a lose condition. In fact, the way many people play HC the game ends up being significantly LESS of a challenge, because you avoid anything that could seriously threaten the life of your character. In Season 3, a Softcore group of 4 cleared grift 77. In Hardcore, the higher cleared grift was 68. I would wager that nobody in Hardcore ever even attempted a 77.
    Simply put, some people enjoy the challenge of taking on content that pushes the limits of their gear more than the "challenge" of not disconnecting and not having a partner that gets you killed. Some people enjoy trying again when they fail to meet that challenge, rather than giving up and starting over. Which isn't to discount the challenge of keeping yourself alive, but just to say that it is a very different challenge, and not necessarily "more" of one.
    I have to say I agree. On the times I've played HC, I was overly cautious and never tried "pushing" my character to see what he/she could handle. For people that play HC exclusively, I know they push WAY, WAY harder than someone like myself, but like HarleyM stated, they aren't going to go gonzo as often like a SC char will.

    I'm not seeing the issue here. The single player leaderboard is simply for showcasing how well a character goes at it alone (single character in the Grift.) If you play multiplayer to level/gear up and and then test yourself against a Grift all by your lonesome, I don't see any problems with that.


    I think maybe some are confusing single player with solo player. I play multiplayer a vast majority of the time unless I'm specifically working on something that I'd rather just do alone (like recently I found the Gibbering Gemstone the first day of Season 4 during a bounty and the next day I found the Liquid Rainbow during a bounty so I decided to waste a little time and look for the rest of the pieces of my Staff of Herding.)


    I'm sure this has been mentioned before, but maybe Blizz could include a SOLO leaderboard and have it check for characters that have joined a multiplayer game and if so, that character would not show up on the SOLO leaderboard. You character file could have a simple data flag that when checked would designate whether a char has ever joined a multiplayer game.
