    Can someone explain exactly how i get this worked? do i need a specific program? would be nice if someone can explain it step by step.

    And sorry for my dumbness :/

    Read through the links on the first post, it goes into a little more detail. Basically:
    1. Download Autohotkey,
    2. load this script with AHK,
    3. ????
    4. Profit from not needing physical therapy from your newly developed carpel tunnel.

    If you absolutely must run a macro—there is no safe way—I recommend using the Steelseries mouse that's officially "sponsored" by Blizzard. That mouse comes with a macro system that you can customize and works very well. Hold down one button to trigger multiple key presses.

    I know several SNS wizards that use the mouse and the macro.
    Actually, that mouse macro system is in the same boat as AHK. It is no safer, and possibly less safe (since a smaller customer base uses it) than AHK. I'm going to start linking various blue posts on the matter:
    http://us.battle.net...59954?page=2#30 - Specifying they ban for the automation it performs, not just the use of program/mouse/keyboard. It depends how you use it, not just that you're using it.

    http://us.battle.net...1963?page=6#119 - Specifying that anything more than 1 key press 1 action is technically against the TOS, but clarifies that they will likely not do anything about these simple macros.

    try this out. i use the 1,2,3 buttons instead of e,w,and q, and i have it as the f11, which is what my g11 key registers as. i use it cause logitech has it in a nice place, right next to the Lshift and ctrl keys


    $F11::
    while GetKeyState("F11", "P")
    {
    send 1
    sleep 3
    send 2
    sleep 3
    send 3
    sleep 3
    }
    return

    i believe its 1=FN, 2=DS, 3=EB, but you can do what you want with it

    You still have to click with yours, but using a non alpha key does simplify the script a bit (since you don't have to worry about what it does to your chat).

    You should include a dislaimer that AHK is considered 3rd party software by blizzard so using it can cause the account to become banned. Whether anyone has actually been banned for it is another discussion but use of macros goes against the ToS and is considered automation of gameplay.
    Noted and added. However, I'm almost certain I've seen blue's explicitly allowing AHK somewhere... maybe I dreamed that up.

    And I'm certain I've seen blue posts saying otherwise, namely that any use of macros that automates a rotation is considered automation of gameplay. They tend to not directly answer questions like that though so there's always a lot of debate in such topics.
    I know a lot of that negative responses also were in the context of WOW rotations, where there is more potential to be had in a rotation script. Since there isn't much to be gained (other than a healthy wrist) in Diablo, that might be another point in AHK's favor.

    Edit: Reading around it seems AHK is explicitly allowed, but could be used in a manner that Blizzard does not condone. Despite mixed responses, the general opinion is that as long as you are at your keyboard, and the script isn't doing anything other then triggering keys on your key presses, then it's kosher.

    This script is a tweaked and improved version of a CM rotation you might have already seen around. Found link to the original script here: http://www.teamliqui...topic_id=378958 and http://www.autohotke...utofire-thread/ . The general idea is that instead of mashing your keys all day long, you just hold down one key and point for the full (and in some cases improved) effect. Posting my improved version here for your pleasure:

    #InstallMouseHook
    #Ifwinactive, Diablo
    $d::
    Send d
    KeyWait d, T0.1  ; Wait 1/10 second for user to release "d" key
    If ErrorLevel{	; Still held down
    Click down
    While GetKeyState("d","p"){ ; While it's held down
    Send e
    Sleep 10
    Send w
    Sleep 50
    Send q
    sleep 50
    }
    if !GetKeyState("LButton", "P")
    Click up
    ;else its down so leave it down
    }
    return
    
    #Ifwinactive ;end


    Cm wizards rejoice! This version improves on the old one in a variety of ways. First, the old one actually spam clicked the mouse, whereas I wanted a mouse button held down effect. This maximizes the twisters you can create since there is no arbitrary delay between clicks. It will detect your mouse button position on d release so that the computer will know what state the mouse button should be in. Second, I reduced the timings to be more aggressive to maximize your abilities that get triggered without flooding the keyboard. Third, there was no reason to delay the original "d" so I pulled that out of the delay block.

    A few notes:
    - Its only active while Diablo window is up
    - My EB is on "q", DS is on "w", and FN is on "e" with twister on main mouse button. Any differences for you will either need to be changed to match mine, or tweak the script to push your buttons
    - My "d" delay is rather short, making it difficult to type d's in chat if your fingers are slow. You might consider bumping that up to 0.2 seconds.
    - Autohotkey is a 3rd party program, so could be considered against the TOS. However, I have never heard of a case where AHK has caused anyone to get the ban-hammer, so feel yourself appropriately warned.

    L2 not google your build and come up with your own =P

    huh? i didnt google anyones build, and if i did its only to do the opposite,
    i want to be the only barbarian not using WW or in this case the only wizard not using desint/orb
    Many wizards use neither disintegrate nor arcane orbs. Not terribly uncommon.

    Some people fail at AH then complain. The upgrades you mentioned cost more like 20k gold. If you use filters correctly you will quickly find out that loads of ppl dump pretty good rares in AH for stupidly low price.
    I recently upgraded 3 pieces on my monk for 100k gold in total. Including pants with 100dex/vit, 500 armor, all res and arcane res. Those were 45k gold...

    you failed at the game totally if you are still upgrading to 100dex/vit pants...
    top quality gear are 400-500 stats (vit plus w/e your primary is) plus resist all, crit, AS.

    and guess where those items came from....

    I wonder, i just quick went to the market, gave Vit 300, Str 100, All ress 50 - and guess what: NOTHING

    I think you are trolling or...?
    He is evidently prone to exaggeration. Max stats for a larger item (pants for example) is in the 300-350 range.

    The blizzard item database *should* have the variance, but I wouldn't count on them being more then just guidelines.

    You could also add %hp modifiers, since they will effect the worth of vitality (and EHP).

    posted a message on Confusion about Diablo 3 Weapons stats 2H vs 1h
    Quote from TheNameless

    i'm a little bit confused....

    if an ability "deals 150% weapondamage" - WHICH number is taken for that 150%?
    the naked "x-x Damage" on the weapon? the listed dps on the weapon? or even the final damage shown on the char-screen?
    and if the number is taken from the "weapon-screen" - what about 2 1hands.... from which one will be the number taken? left or right? or additive from both?
    % weapon damage uses the non-dps, 'naked' damage. For dual wielding, it does some sort of weighted average, but I'm not sure on the details.

    posted a message on Why Go For IAS on an Weapon?
    To play Devil's advocate, using a slower weapon may be of more use in harder difficulties, since you don't always have a lot of time to sit and spam your skills. Being able to 'drop a bomb' and move on quickly prioritizes slower weapons over faster ones since you don't have time to attack multiple times anyway.
