    posted a message on RoS release date revealed?
    I can't imagine they would pull the AH the exact same time as loot 2.0 is patched. Since blizzard is a business, they want to make money. I would imagine they might try to get loot 2.0 out by Christmas time to generate income off the AH, although that time is approaching fast with no PTR in site.

    Either way, it would seem silly to pull the AH at the same time as the loot patch release because there are bound to be some tweaks or bugs, even with a PTR.

    posted a message on Is loot alert bannable?
    It's not that it's just third party, it's that it reads memory and is therefore very illegal. It's just a matter of time.

    posted a message on 500 hours in and this is a first for me...
    People are complaining about this on the official forums:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/5386230/

    Best thing you can do is likely reply to the threads and show your support for changing the stupid mechanic. There is simply no reason the game should count down from 10 to close for you since you didn't initiate the kick. It's not as if you are intentionally being kicked to avoid death and therefore exploiting (although I suppose some people could orchestrate that).

    One of the guy's involved in this lost a 22 WD though.

    Skycrown first to get stacks is a nice change. Too many times I've done core > tower 1 and only had a 2-3 stacks. No matter where I went after that, I would be wasting xp due to not enough stacks.

    Eh, maybe. According to some of those illegal 3rd party sites the ban rate wasn't that high compared to the people who use the bot.

    Do you guys think gold is on the rise because of the holidays/rmah money pit, or is there something else going on?

    If it's just because of a player influx, this looks promising for when PvP arrives. Gold last week was around 29 cents per million, and it's now up to 39 cents!

    posted a message on Buying an account?
    It's not so much that the accounts will be banned, it's that the sites you buy them from will repo them after you gear the account up. I've bought WoW accounts before and they always ended up taking it back and giving me 'store credit' to buy another account with (that is, gear another account up so they can repo/resell it for more money).

    I understand your money over time thing. I just want to give you a heads up. These sites demand all information upfront about the accounts they purchase including the secret security question (which cannot be changed), and a photo id of the real owner.

    They can always get the accounts back. It's like getting ripped off in a drug deal. You can't go complain to Blizzard about it.

    posted a message on [GUIDE] ikigai's 100m exp/hr Barb.
    Well, I am able to pull 10 million a run like you did (only using a perfect star in my helm), but I am about a minute longer. I think my dps is the problem as some elite packs slow me way down. That and I like to loot random shit too much.

    Either way, it's better than what I was doing.

    I am running something similar, but using Leap/call of arreat over Furious Charge. It generate plenty of fury on its own, not to mention the aoe pull for overpower and mobility it provides. I'm only 130k dps with all buffs, but the speed is great for me so far. I'll give your route a try today.

    Edit: I think I will try this build out and just try my Leap over bash. The furious charge looks like it helps a ton on speed. I have a 5pc IK so fury isn't too much of a problem right now.

    posted a message on List of what this game NEEDS. and should already have.
    One of the best things about the old battle.net (Diablo 1) was the ability to create your own channel and have op. Anyone could make a guild and stick a bot in a channel. Guilds in D1 were how I met some long-lasting friends. However, we did like to channel war and got a lot of CD keys banned... I was in ~TG|{~ if anyone remembers those days.

    Definitely guild channels, ladders, and way more affixes on gear.

    Remember, Blizzard takes the holidays off. Probably just tidying up before a 2 week vacation.

    posted a message on Gear check for a Shield/tank Monk
    Quote from extermiantus

    Hey guys could really use a hand with act 3 inferno. I'm surviving up to a point before elites wipe the floor with me. Prior to act 3 I was using Mantra of conviction but I just melted in act3, tried mantra of evasion and it gave me some survivability.

    http://us.battle.net...2/hero/17591646

    Would prefer to use a shield over an off hand weapon as I've invested so much in the shield and helm.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Looks like your vitality is a bit low. I've just came back to the game so my gear is similar to yours, but I farm Act 3 'easily' (wish I had more dps):

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/pherce-1693/hero/5288755

    Sure, sometimes I run into horde hulking phasebeasts and die a few times, but I can usually run for an hour without seeing a repair bill over 20k.

    Try picking up some vitality and maybe LoH on an amulet (you used to be able to get 400+ LoH for 300k or less). Check for some legacy Ouroboros necks, they always looked nice. I just never found one with physical resist myself =\

    Maybe I am crazy and only remember this...because I am crazy...but didn't they announce arena coefficients would be different than PvE? That seemed to stick out in my mind because I couldn't believe WoW didn't do that yearrrrs ago.
