    Leveling 1-70


    Level 1 Gambling Spreadsheet


    GR 20 Season Journey Builds


    For Crus and Necro, the GR 20 is much easier if you play "Thorns" instead of using the 4 set pieces from Haedrig's Gift!

    posted a message on Cains and borns bounty

    Quote from fst_d3go-next

    Guys I've been doing Act 1 split bounties with my group at the start of S8, S9, S10. We always got a few Cain's / Born's plans from turning in the bounty at around level 6. If you're unlucky you may not get one at all but usually you get 2-4 plans / 4-player group.


    Hey fst_d3, i read all your guides, rly good job.
    I was thinking doing the master boss bounty, and then complete the rest of the a2 bountys, we are only 2 ppl, is this a bad idea, should we just do the a1 bounty's? I am talking effiency, i hope we can hit 70 in like 4 hours (you think it is possible?)
    I personally dislike doing bounties at a higher level / different act than act 1. Pick the leveling method which you feel most comfortable with.

    posted a message on What do you think about the new Challenge Rifts mode?
    Quote from Emmogo-next

    I feel that replays of some of the top spots would be a nice addition. If nothing else it will show how some of the top players play, giving us casuals an idea of how it's done properly.




    - First of all, do the rifts several times and learn the layout (you don't want to run in dead ends)

    - Find out the mobtypes, elite positions and dens areas on every floor, which are worth clearing

    - You could do screenshots of the map, mark elite and pylon positions, draw a route IF you struggle with remembering it
    - When killing elites, you want to always be inside of Oculus ring circles
    - You may have to grind for 5-10 hours for a top spot or even more (this already applies to the "pros, inexperienced players may have to practice the mode for a while, before finding out how to properly do CRs)

    posted a message on What do you think about the new Challenge Rifts mode?

    It's actually way worse than expected. They showcase builds, which don't make any sense. For example, why would you put a 160 dex gem into a ring? Most of the items are not rerolled either. Rerolled items were rolled wrong in most of the cases. This may mislead new players and inexperienced players.

    posted a message on Bot??
    Quote from franehrgo-next

    I have a question about botting. I was wondering how to recognise bot leecher? what I mean is what is game developer doing to prevent some guy to intentionally take(buy) 3 other accounts set them to bot on 3 other pc, and set them to drop items they farm while playing legit on primary account .. for exsample isn't it obvious something fishy is going on on leader boards with that blackbird guy(eu) ... he has already 8 primal ancient equipment... when I compare him to other players they usually have 3-5 peces of equipment...also he is 3000 para and I am 1400 and I don't have single one usefull peace of equipment while he has 8 maby more..

    Paragon and items don't help you to find botters, there are also players with insane gear who don't play a lot and there are also players with as high paragon as him, who are just playing 12h a day with a group. They don't do anything else than efficient GR grinding. You can do the following: View Profile, go to Season 10 tab, check the playtime for each class. There are players with high paragon, who have 10-12 h / day and players with 22 h / day. I made a spreadsheet about playtime for the top 10 solo Leaderboards for EU and US. You can find it here:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1o0w0sZOYqqQsEKFoJnj9i-J7b1O0QxAK6sw2FgidCPc/edit?usp=sharing
    I'm not saying that players with low playtime are legit! But the percentage of botters is much higher among players with 20h playtime compared to players with half as much.

    posted a message on So, no banwave this season?
    Cow level exploit ? never heard about that, what's the point ? it can be T13 max so ... ?

    He's talking about leaving a GR during a push (as Wizard; 4player), to get an insane amount of Archon Stacks from a prepulled Cow Level, to burst down the Rift Guardian after stacking Stricken for 2 minutes. That's what the groups on the 4-player Leaderboard frontpage are doing ;).

    @pacuaunu


    please watch your language. A discussion in our boards should be always with respect to each other and not in this way.







    I do have no respect for persistent ignorance.





    It looks more and more like you're the persistent ignorant...
    Ignoring what others are saying and derailing the thread into some semantics about a bugged build and what it means to be bugged or not which Blizzard themselves already said it's unintended behavior (IE:BUG) but since it's not overpowered and it's fun they'll let it slide. because they will not fix it it doesn't mean it's not a bug, it's a nice one and worked out fine, but unintended behavior = a bug.




    I dunno who is here the ignorant..... Blizzard stated that this build I S INTENDED AND IT WORK AS THEY DESIGNED, and they are even happy about that, they never said is an unintended behavior, they even made that blue post to underline the contrary, here someone or is stupid or in bad faith, IT IS NOT A BUG, period.



    They fixed the skill Spirit Barrage on a previous PTR, but forgot about the Mojo The Gazing Demise. In their blue post they say "While this is somewhat inconsistent philosophically from the changes that we’ve made in the past regarding this skill and rune combination..." THIS REFERS TO THE FIX, which has been made.

    Then they say the following:

    "Is it fun? Is it balanced? Ultimately, we’ve decided that the answer to both of these questions is yes, and there is much higher risk in adjusting the balance of this skill or the other items than there is to let the community continue to enjoy this fun and unique build."


    This means, they won't fix Spirit Barrages that are summoned by the Mojo The Gazing Demise, because the build is fun to play and seems balanced in it's current state and they don't want to risk anything by fixing it.


    If you want more information about it, check PTR changelogs and videos about the old build, which was overpowered and got fixed, which clearly means, it wasn't intended that Spirit Barrages are concidered as pets ;)


    Now please get back on topic. This thread is about Archon Stacks and not Spirit Barrage.

    posted a message on Archon exploit in high grs ruining the leaderboards.

    Hey, I've also just posted about this on reddit and over here. HappyGandalf did post about it at the start of the Season on reddit. There is a thread on the official forums too. No response by Blizzard. They fixed in on the PTR though. Unlike any other crucial bug, this time they didn't give any statement regarding the abuse of it.

    posted a message on Leaderboards bugged?

    Always check the ingame Leaderboards. If you are curious about the Leaderboards in other regions, switch the region in your b.net launcher or ingame settings (you can log into US, EU, Asia (South Korea) with your credentials, China is using a different client etc.). There is no 100% up to date website, because every website with Leaderboard statistics is pulling the data via b.net API frequently, but not live. On top of it, the API is very limited featurewise.

    posted a message on Archon Stacks Bug

    Well you just linked the blue post which says they won't fix the bug, because it's balanced and fun to play. With "While this is somewhat inconsistent philosophically from the changes that we’ve made in the past regarding this skill and rune combination" they refer to the bug, which has been fixed for Zuni Set some time ago. They forgot to fix it for Jerams and Enforcer. Thanks for linking the source, which proofs that you're wrong. Next time, think twice before you make yourself again look like a fool. By the way... did you even notice that this topic is about the Archon Stacks Bug and not about LoN Spirit Barrage? Please stay on topic and watch your language.

    Quote from pacuaunugo-next

    Spirit Barrage build IS NOT BUGGED, stop with this ignorant nonsense urban legend internet emo spreading, Blizzard stated in its latest blue post everything about it so stop with this bullshits please.



    The Spirit Barrages summoned by the Mojo The Gazing Demise ARE bugged, because they are concidered as pets and get buffed by Enforcer and Jerams. It wasn't intended. Do some research! Blizzard said, you're fine to play the build, because it is fun and not overpowerd (it seems balanced in their opinion)! Beside that everything in your post is wrong, you should really watch your language.

    posted a message on Archon Stacks Bug

    Hey guys! As you can see on the 4-Player Leaderboards, groups with Wizards instead of Demon Hunters are appearing at the top in every region. There will be more towards the end of the Season and all thoose groups have one thing in common: "a clever use of game mechanics". Due to it, which has been around since the beginning of the Season, Wizards can get an insane amount of Archon Stacks for Rift Guardian fights. This will enable them to kill Rift Guardians more than twice as fast as Demon Hunters can (2 minutes RG kills in GR 125 without any pylons)). The bug has been fixed on the PTR, but not on the live servers - and a fix will most likely not happen during the current Season. I won't post further details here, unless I get permission to do it. For the sake of fair competition, everyone should be aware of it. What do you think about it? Do you think, it's the same case like Firebug Build, LoN Spirit Barrage, etc., which were allowed to use? Or is it more like the Hellfire bug, which wasn't allowed to use? A clear statement from Blizzard would be nice (This bug isn't new! It has been reported in the beginning on the official forums, on reddit and theres a video about it on YouTube.)

    posted a message on Diablo 3 Pocket Guide - Website online

    Hey everyone!

    I just wanted to let you know, that I will move all information from the spreadsheet to a website.

    The spreadsheet will stay online on https://tinyurl.com/DiabloPocketGuide but I will not update it anymore.

    New guides will be available exclusively on the website, which is available here:

    https://D3Sanctuary.com

    It's just a simple wordpress site and I didn't change any styles yet. Concider it as a prototype^^

    I'm pretty new to wordpress. If anyone is interested in making a custom css for my wordpress theme or

    any other theme, contact me ([email protected]).

    I hope you still like it and find anything useful over there!

    Feel free to contact me for any suggestions or requests!

    Cheers

    posted a message on Ancient Parthan Defenders bug...??

    Pretty much every piece of your gear is wrong roll-wise.

    - no vit on shoulders

    - missing socket on neck

    - no ele % on bracers

    - no all res on boots

    - no all res on pants

    - you rolled armor on belt even though it doesn't have 15% life, why? Armor is the least important stat for you. Doesn't make much sense.

    - aweful compass rose

    and so on.

    You should check out some guides and start farming proper gear. GL
