    posted a message on What to play (Season 6)

    Instead of just trying to create a new topic I guess I will ask here.

    I plan on playing mostly solo with a few pick PUGs when I can. I usually get 1-2 hours a day.

    I would perfer to play a Barb, Witch Doc, or DH.

    I have not kept up with PTR much so based on all the changes, what class would be good to play that requires the least amount effort (aka least complicated item/gear setup as well as not too dificult to play; im not a fan of trying to constantly snapshot damage based on the buffs) to most likely be able to get at least the free stash tab by the end of the season (assuming a little luck to get some items)

    posted a message on The conquests are way to hard!!!
    Quote from Bagstonego-next

    Quote from Kallizkgo-next

    I've seen alot of ppl claiming the conquests are hard, srsly? are they? i'm really asking here, because i never had any difficulty completing any of them in any season, heck this season i played 100hours on the season hero and went back to NS and i still got the season journey mostly solo and sometimes with rl m8's/GF.
    My advise is to dedicate yourself to it instead of slacking, cause u HAVE to be slacking at this point the season has lasted ALOT of time, more than enough for a solo 80 np.


    The 50 million gold streak requires a bit of luck and preparation (T7+ vault or gold goblin while wearing Boon of the Hoarder, Goldskin, and/or gold find gear; or Ruins of Corvus). Yet, it's the easiest conquest.

    • 8 set dungeons require people to gear up at least two characters with all four sets plus the gear required for that level (about T6 difficulty); since every class has 1-2 super hard set dungeons, it might be more reasonable to actually gear three classes and cherry pick set dungeons, but still that's a lot of multi-class time investment that many casuals don't do.
    • Level GR55 with six different sets is like 8 set dungeons - just much harder (instead of gearing for T6 and being able to cherry pick, you need to gear for the equivalent of about T12 or so). While it's relatively easy on one class and ridiculously easy for people that reach a certain level of paragon, many casuals perceive this as difficult.
    • Sprinter (campaign in under one hour) is hard. I've seen experienced runners doing everything perfect and only get this with 3 minutes left. I've seen some of the best players in the world attempt this and fail this by pure RNG (and after one hour of pushing this not everyone can live with the defeat and just "try again").
    • The Thrill is arguably the easiest, though it's a matter of 1) how much paragon you have, 2) your gem levels, 3) your non-set gear available and 4) your general knowledge of class skills outside of cookie cutter builds. It's the easiest conquest in my book if you have paragon 400+, rank 50+ gems and a few random ancient items (even if they have no useful legendary effects). But there are many casuals who don't have this, and play this game for what it is - a hack'n'slash game where they pick a few random spells and just click on mobs while hoping they die.

    Avarice and The Thrill should be doable, at least with some preparation, for many casual players (not all, but many). The other three conquests are hard for casuals, yes.



    The season 6 conquests will be much easier in comparison.

    Thank you so much for this Bagstone! OMG I see so much "its so easy" around here people forget there are people who are legit casuals. I work 50+ hours a week. I have family, I watch/listen to movies and TV half the time because I am so exhausted to get out of bed. I love my diablo. I want to enjoy it I want the extra stash tabs but I just cant beat some of the concquests solo with my limited time. Thankfully S6 looks more reasonable.

    2. Easy: Complete one season Conquest this season

      1. Show me what you got: Kill Diablo on TX within 1 minute 30 seconds

    posted a message on Is progression too fast?

    Bah maybe I am just that guy but I hate when people get all, even casual's will finish the season journey in 2 weeks. I haven't, and I play what I consider to be true casual. I play for a while most nights but not every night. I hit P350 last night and I actually am having fun this season feeling like sure there are people at 800 or 1000+ but this time i really could compete if I wanted to. On top of that I feel like I can finally see more of the game since before this season I was never even able to do T10. Now I can actually get 25 and Higher on gems, now i am seeing way more legendaries some of which I never even knew existed. I may be the minority on the forums but I think this was a great step.

    posted a message on 6pc Set vs Ancient Set rings

    I would love an opinion from those who are currently playing this season. I got the two rings that give the set bonus when you wear ancients and no other set items and firebirds only (i have some other set pieces but not full sets yet) I have 6 Ancient pieces (not great rolls but ok) including both ancient weapon and source. Is it worth it to run the ancient set? or should I stick to firebirds until I have more Ancient pieces or at least pieces that work together instead of being random?


    If it helps this is currently what Gear I am wearing for ancient stuff http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/DocSun-1755/hero/71553613

    posted a message on New to the game, just reached level 70- Now what?

    Ok so Nephalem rifts are random areas that have random enemies. They have a better loot drop chance and at higher levels can drop Greater Rift Stones once you beat a boss that appears when you finish filling the progress bar that appears when you first enter. The greater rift stones are used to enter Greater Rifts. These are used to access rifts that have to be beaten within 15 min. They drop NO loot during the rift but once you beat the boss you get special gems that give great bonuses when socketed into amulets or rings and can level those gems up this way as well. the experience in these GRs are also much higher and have better drops at the end. Greater rifts can also go above the Torment X difficulty.


    Paragon Levels are infinite, but you will max out the capable bonuses at lvl800. After that it is just main stat and vit.


    You should be working to do rifts and getting legendaries to suit the build you want, Greater Rifts to get the gems you want and level them up, Bounties can be done to get crafting materials for kanai's cube to extract powers once you get what you need.

    posted a message on How long is the campaign?

    If you are reading everything and watching every cut scene then it will take you a few hours at least. If you are trying to rush then really for a beginner character maybe 2-3 hours an act? It's been so long since I touched campaign for more than speed run achievements or leorics crown.

    posted a message on LF any Wizards to run Rifts (both Nef and Greater)

    I'm a casual who usually only hits around P200 in a season. I want to change that. I heard teaming with others of the same class will help you get the gear you need as you all can share.

    So I am looking for some players who are playing Wiz and don't mind working with me


    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/DocSun-1755/hero/71553613 (DocSun#1755)


    Oddly the gear is updated but not level or skills. Im somewhere in the low paragon single or double digits.

    I play after 5:30pm EST.


    Would love to play with ya. Let me know!

    posted a message on Can't cube pre-2.4 Legendaries

    What yuhanz said.

    Plus, items that had their legendary power updated (like Drakkon's Lesson which had the damage buffed) have been removed from the cube and you have to extract a new version of them.

    I hope thats not true some of the legendaries are hard to find and because of a minor update I would not be allowed to keep it? that would piss me off as a player.

    posted a message on Best Season class/build to get Conqueror done/new stash tab...

    I love it when people say it should only take 25-30 hours. I want to really know what people are doing that cause this. For me with my life and responsibilities I am lucky to finish one or two steps of conquest. let alone all but the final one for stash tabs. Even with the time I get I probably played a good 50-100 hours last season never got past GR equivalent of T8 let alone speed running it. If people really feel it's that easy to even compensate for RNG and shite drops than please let me know what I am doing wrong. I guess I am just not "efficient" enough.


    Though to answer the OPs question from the leaderboards and from my experience on PTR Wizards, WD, and DH are best for speed DPS

    posted a message on 2.4 Roundup - Set Dungeons

    This topic needs to be updated. Ive spotted at least one thing that is different. in the UE DH set you can not let your Discipline drop below 50%, let alone exhaust it.


    Also is it just me or are a lot of these FRUSTRATINGLY DIFFICULT.? The difficulty of each rift almost seems random with some monsters dealing way more damage than I am expecting others their health is so weak that just having thorns on one of my items accidentally almost kills creatures and with some of the objectives requiring you to line up mobs there are literally just enough to do the mission and god help you if you miss any? Did I miss a dev explaining why this is or is it just something that the community agrees was done on purpose to pad the length of these dungeons?

    posted a message on Catch up for season 5

    No the free set is not from patch 2.3. The new free set is a new reward starting with patch 2.4 in season only. (season 5)


    It works like this. You complete certain steps of the seasons Journey and you get Hedrigs Gifts - The following as copied from the official site


    "each step of the Season Journey will only reward one Haedrig’s Gift (for a total of three bags per Season/one full set of gear), regardless of how many characters you might play in a given Season. Make sure to claim these gifts on the character you want to receive their set!

    The class sets offered in Season 5 are:

    Barbarian: Might of the Earth
    Crusader: Thorns of the Invoker
    Demon Hunter: The Shadow’s Mantle
    Monk: Monkey King’s Garb
    Witch Doctor: Raiment of the Jade Harvester
    Wizard: Firebird’s Finery"
