    posted a message on 116 Legendaries being Given Away @ 10:30pm EST
    Giveaways will begin at 10:30pm where we'll give away what's been donated (no winning back to back)
    Crafting of the 200 BoA items will occur before and after
    Stream will likely end between 4:00 and 7:00am EST


    http://twitch.tv/foladar


    tldr:
    *Giving away unID and IDed legendaries (116) as well as amulets/rings (33) including Unity, Leoric's Signet
    *No back-to-back wins
    *Crafting 200+ Bind on Account items

    I'm sure I'll get downvoted but I wanted to get the word out, as long as it helps at least one person <3

    (Note: I'm just starting back on D3 and very new, 1 week, to streaming, so the items won't all be amazing like other top streamers who do giveaways. These items were donated by great users, and giveaways will be done in sets of 3 so everyone can win.)

    posted a message on Recommendations for earning gold?
    I'm looking for some suggestions as to farming routes, etc in terms of earning gold as I'm planning a giveaway on stream tomorrow (Saturday) with over 60 legendaries, however I can't really give out gold as I've only earned 30mil (and plan to do 200+ BoA crafts on stream). Anybody have suggestions? thanks.

    PS: The streams button doesn't appear to be working if any mods read this.

    Didn't they say mail was in the patch notes for the CSR to send you stuff? Like lost items, probably?

    edit: Found it

    A new item delivery system has been added that will allow Blizzard to send items directly to players (you may see us testing this feature over the course of the PTR)

    I replaced some pieces but still need to fix the HP issue I think, my biggest issue is getting "it" started, the lack of initial fury. By the time it's going, I'm either in a bad position or dead.

    Quote from Beefaaleaf

    All you need is a little more loh. Your stats, otherwise, are good enough for a3/4 as I do them with similar stats to yours but with 2100 LoH.
    Where would you suggest picking it up? I can get ~350loh from neck, and probably ~600 in offhand so we're looking at almost 1k. About 300ish from the two rings might put be around 1250-1300. I'm guessing the only real option is to pick up an expensive main hand 700+ DPS mace with a socket?

    I've clearly got too much HP, i think, but looking for more resists is quite painful. What pieces should I try to improve, what should I aim for, or is it just a lost cause? LOL

    Stats: http://i.imgur.com/0Lldk.jpg
    Gear: http://i.imgur.com/dEknd.jpg

    I have a few other pieces I was using but switched to the current gear to get more hp/resists/defense. The extra pieces:

    Amulet: 141str, 389 LOH, 55% crit dmg, 26% gf
    Ring: 22-42 dmg, 60 str, 47 int, 29 lightning resists, 143 LOH, 18% gf, 4.0 crit
    Offhand: 580 1h dps, 513 loh, 55% crit dmg and open socket
    Chest: 345 armor, 76 str, 146 vit, 43 lightning resists, 53 resistance to all, 2 sockets (with 42 vit currently)
    Gloves: 257 armor, 79 str, 41 dex, 124 vit, 31% crit dmg, 7% crit
    Helm: 332 armor, 60 str, 70 vit, 45 cold, 55 resists, 4% crit

    Glad they've acknowledged it, too bad they aren't actually fixing it in a timely manner. If it was something that benefited the player, it'd have been nerfed Wed morning. Done with the game until they fix act 3 drop rates.

    posted a message on Farming (Act 3 vs 4 vs Ponies)
    Quote from Zakaz

    High-level items were dropping at too high of a rate previously, and have been nerfed in the content where that was apparent. This was done to alleviate the problem with gold becoming increasingly less valuable per unit, directly resulting in prices skyrocketing and shutting a huge group of players out of being able to progress in a timely fashion.

    Why are people still discussing this like it's some big surprise? Did anyone really expect to keep pulling in hundreds of thousands of gold an hour while being a part of an extremely small group able to farm the content providing that (utilizing broken mechanics, glass cannon builds, being incredibly lucky early on, et al)?

    Drops are working as intended, and will make the economy in this game better for the long run. Can we move on already?
    If that's true, they shouldn't have passed off the 8% drop rate as an increased rate, and then stated "we'll look into it" but rather just be upfront and say they've lowered the drop rate from what it was previously, to the now 8% rate.

    Truthfully if it's a nerf to 8% and they tried to slide it past us, that's probably the last nail in the coffin for me, too many stealth "adjustments" and too many changes, I'll wait until beta's over to play again.

    Yeah, seems like act 3 either got nerfed or is bugged with regards to ilevel 63 items. Nowhere near what it was in 1.0.2 doing 5-stack Siege runs. Curious though if it's bugged, or if they nerfed it and tried to sneak it past us.

    posted a message on will 1.0.3 help?
    Quote from realhoffi

    the problem is, in a1 there is no gear for a melee to survive in a2, same a2-->a3...
    the bosses are never the problem, melees are broken. ranged invest 1mio and clear complete inf where melees have to buy stats gear WITH resists... so this is no gaming experience and not really fun.

    ok in a2, IF u find a stormshield mit 25+% block u get 15mio, then ure inf a3 ready, but without this luck, u have to farm 2 years to get the gold^^...

    i think, melee dmg reduction must be 45+% and some tweaking in the life transitions between the acts and its fine.
    and the ilvl drop changes are good for all ppl, so i think prices get down :D
    So by this, you're saying stormshield = 15 million, thus 15 million = 2 years? You might want to try selling some of the items you're getting in act 1, friend sold a few and he's already at 5 million. Nonetheless, my monk's cleared through Siegebreaker, so there it is possible. Act 2 was hard at first, act 3 is worse, though.

    Edit: and fwiw i think they're going to overtune the damage down in 1.0.3, but we'll see.

    Pretty sure my stats were at or lower than that, try to get past the desert as those poison shots are a bit .. painful. I know I had less resistance and dps, but I wasn't sure of my hp (likely higher, around 39k). Act 3 is a different story.

    I'd imagine they have to launch the NA region at the same time, if they let east coast go live at 12:01, but force those of us who went with digital via Blizzard to wait until 12:01am on west coast, people would cancel their digital orders.

    They opened the Beta up for SWTOR in the last few weeks before release,didnt here about any problems there.Come on Miester Blizzard do all your fans a flavour and open it up for a week,cant see a problem to be honest.
    SWTOR isn't established like Diablo is either, or Blizzard in general. Tons of people would sign up for an open beta of Diablo 3 just because, even if they weren't on the beta opt-in already. Even if they just invited the opt-in list, i'd imagine it would be a mess. This coming from another person not yet in beta, so the 99.9% stat given out would be inaccurate.

    I'd start my time off on Wednesday if you're in Australia, personally. Might depend on which server you intend to play on, too.

    posted a message on Release Date/Time Zones How Does it Work?
    One would imagine they would launch the game at 12:01am pacific since that's likely when the digital downloads would allow you to install. Whatever time they allow digital downloads would be my guess for the launch time, since they wouldn't be too smart allowing the game to release at 12:01am eastern, and digital downloads at 12:01am pacific, otherwise it'd be pointless.

    edit: fwiw the digital download of Cata went live at 12:01am pacific / 12:01am CET depending on region, but not sure what time the actual content went live on each server?

    No, they still don't know when servers will go up yet =)

    (Don't let anyone say its 12:01 pst as a fact yet (there's a good chance it will be pst) but as of right now the only thing we KNOW, is that the digital copy becomes unlocked at 12:01 pst. Bashiok is still saying they dont know when servers will come online yet. its a very tricky thing for them, as people will be upset either way.)

    Im still hoping for est time!

    I'd hope they would release the servers and digital copies at the same time, otherwise going digital with Blizzard would be kinda pointless.
