    posted a message on How do DoTs and Pets work with temporary damage/intel buffs?

    as Mad_Tom wrote i don't think many things snapshot anymore due to past abuse, also dots (and healing) tick way faster than you think, the display numbers are a collection of multiple ticks, so the update when you have coe or any other buff is much smoother, its like with a bombing sader, the bonuses need to be up when the bombs hit not when you press the ability because that's when the actual damage is calculated

    Quote from ch1zrago-next


    It's removing dust devils but it's buffing overall base damage of WW. Some people went into GR 90's on PTR using WW, so it's good :)

    its not removing dust devils, its just shifting numbers around so that the tornadoes aren't 99% of your damage, 6pc still gives dust devils, but instead of fixing them to 2500% weapon damage it gives an overall 800% damage multiplier to all whirlwind damage, main and dust devils, it comes out to be buffed from before and less rng dependant

    before the buffs it was sort of on par with old ww, falling behind a bit in extremely high density maps where the tornadoes shined more, now after the buff its pretty much the top solo build, with multiple gr 90 clears already right after the leaderboards reset on ptr, we'll see how it stands after a few more days of testing

    Quote from Mirssetgo-next

    Hey guys, from what i see, the new Faithful Memory and the Barber are really good and they have strong potential.

    What about other new items? Can they shake out the meta or atleast be somewhat useful?


    Faithful Memory.. I think it will either be nerfed a little or stay as it is. It's just an important buff, but it's not overpowered or broken like Spirit Barrage.
    The rest of legendaries are junk. The grenade belt is pretty cool, but in "fun" area. Rabid Strike is useless, Saffron Wrap is useless,

    I truly hope they'll leave faithful memory, because finally we'll have a working hammer build that's not based on stutter step hell, maybe tune it a bit like drop the bonus down to 50% max or something, still ptr ladders show its in line with thorn builds not overpowering them

    the similarities between wd and necro didnt discount the latter, this indicates to me that no class is inherently off the table even if a dh is a mix of ama/sin we could still see an ama or sin tho druid would be a safer bet i think, and if the necro pack is successful financially then it would stand to reason blizz might take advantage and go forth wtih more dlc's

    fast ? they've been working on the necro for quite some time now (production started early this year) and all they have to show for it are like 6 skills, male only model with one armorset, the full pack will come out in second half of 2017, that means necro will bedeveloped over like 1,5 year, thats really not fast and i do understand the amount of work that goes into it, i mean just the voiceovers, male and female in a dozen languages, that takes time and money alone, then you've got the design, the asset production, sound effect and all that stuff, still it shouldnt take them that long to develop a single class on an existing framework, especially if this will be a way forward in terms of generating revenue

    good points all around but what i think is interesting about the necro reveal is that it might mean a possible comeback for amazon and assasin aswell, because while dh is somewhat a mix of ama/sin, wd is also very similar to necro yet they went with it anyway, that leaves 3 potential 'old' classess comming back, amazon, assasin and druid because lets be honest, barb is barb, crus is pala and wiz is sorc, if they could make a regular dlc schedule like lets say twice a year with either major map/story content or class, going for 10-20$ that might actually work

    When it comes to build diversity you cant compare d2 to d3 very much because d2 has finite difficulty, you know exactly what you'll be facing at any given time and you build your characters around that, many niche builds can still do uber tristram and baal runs or even get carried without any trouble, while d3 has infinite difficulty with scaling GRs and a random element to what you'll get at the rift, so only the very best very top build combinations progress the most and while it doesnt limit the build diversity outright it sort of pigeonholes people into playing 'meta' if they want to do the highest content

    Quote from Bagstonego-next



    But even a soft reset into a new season take a lot of resources, something games simply do not do in maint mode, no even close really.


    Blizzard has been doing this (soft reset) for 16 years in Diablo 2, so are you telling me Diablo 2 is not in "maintenance mode"? ;-)


    The game was constantly patched for 2 years after it's release, then after 2 more years (2005) Pandaemonium was added, and another 5 years later (2010) was another sort of "bigger" patch with 1.13c. D3 might be at a similar state, where we might not see a "bigger" patch like 2.5 for another 1-2 years. Of course I hope I'm wrong and we get some awesome features at Blizzcon. We'll see, it's not too long of a wait anymore :P

    While that is true, Diablo 2 is a different kind of game, it has a finite difficulty, you know exactly what you'll be facing at any point in the game, that opens up A LOT of viable builds for each class since you dont need the very best build to do the content. Diablo 3 due to the nature of greater rifts and paragon levels scaling difficulty pretty much forces you to play FOTM and that can get boring real quick, at least for me

    Quote from UncleDan2017
    Blizzard is not exactly a fast moving company. I can't see them moving quicker than around half a decade for a game, and D2 to D3 was over a decade.
    That's because D3 was scrapped once and started over from scratch, so it was developed over 3-4 years effectively, besides blizzard is a big company, if they truly needed to speed up the most time consuming process (asset production) they could just throw more people at it, i mean overwatch is out and doesnt need much in that department, legion is also out so same situation, depending on how much they already have on the project i could see late 2018 / 2019 as release date

    posted a message on Why all the hype about D2HD?

    They could make a diablo 2 hd remake, all the d2 graphics were pre-rendered using actual 3d models, blizzard probably still has those models, the reworked game would need a graphic engine update but no asset production for the content that is already there, still i think it would be highly improbable they would actually do this, there already were some updates to w3 and d2 that improve compatibility and i think its all we're gonna get for those old titles, what's comming is something new, especially since one of the artist job postings required knowledge of PBR workflow which is present in starcraft 2 and overwatch but not in any diablo or warcraft games.

    It won't change because it's a lot of work to increase the resolution. Modders who did this also had to completely rework the interface because it breaks when increasing the resolution. Blizzard isn't putting that much work into D2 anymore. They only make sure it works on modern computers (and hopefully do something against spambots)

    well they hired a guy/people to work on this specifically, improving the compatibility of older games for modern systems but also adding features so once the bugs are ironed out and the games run on all systems who knows what could happen, maybe higher res support might come, i wouldnt expect it anytime soon but im not ruling it out

    max cdr you can achieve as monk with the right gear is 78,52%, including gogok that goes to 81,74% thus allowing you to have perma epiphany but to get to those levels of cdr you have to put cdr on neck, use vigilante belt, born's 3 set and captain crimson's 2 set, not really usable aside from maybe some fringe zdsp build, for every other build obsidian ring of the zodiac and as much cdr as you can pack into proper gear will do the trick most of the time

    Quote from adambjjozgo-next

    Not sure if it's a new change, but it appears you can now craft L70 1-handed & 2-handed weapons from the Blacksmith & they have a 30-level skill reduction on them (I think previously you could only craft 1-handed L70 weapons & their level reduction was only 20). So at L42 when you upgrade the blacksmith to L10, you may as well just craft a L70 weapon and slot it in when you can, as opposed to the L60 weapon you used to craft, if that is the case.

    and how would a lvl 42 fresh character have a lvl 12 blacksmith (that requires death's breath, only drops above lvl 60) ?

    you need 2 conquests for the extra stash tab, that means two of :

    2) 350 monsters in a cursed chest at t10

    3) t10 rift in 2 min

    4) gr75 solo

    gem one is easy, then you have cursed chest event that is well suited to classess that clear whole screens of mobs and move fast (wol monk / ue dh), a speed run of a t10 rift that's for fast character (wol monk / dash monk / raekor barb / flashfire wiz / ue dh / chicken wd / lon bomb crus maybe) and a gr75 solo which should be easily doable with every class especially in softcore, so if all you want is the stash you can really choose whatever

    Ah yes, the old "Oh no, my credit card is blacklisted, I can't possibly use another one" strategy. I'm really glad botters were banned, but banning credit cards doesn't do anything. Especially because Blizzard allows payments from other sources.
    they really shouldn't ban credit cards or whole bn accounts just diablo licenses, if a botter wants to get another license that's profit for blizzard, now don't get me wrong im against all cheats in multiplayer games, i just think they should take action more frequently and if cheaters will still get more licenses then they're just throwing money at the devs

    because the follower will take mobs away from you or they'll go to him instead of you and spread a big group into parts

    now myself i did a 71 gr on hardcore without any augments

    as ImQuiteNice mentioned akarat's awakening is quite important, cube one if your rolls are terrible its that good, basicly in big packs it lets you keep your akarat's champ full time and spam iron skin + consecration more often

    weapon is not THAT important, sure would be nice to have a perfect rolled pig sticker but a decent hack or doombringer or just about any fast weapon with good stats will do

    now other than the proper gear there is however one thing that is crucial in reaching high gr's with invoker, its the playstyle, you need to move fast from elite to elite and only kill champs/rares and very big packs of good progress mobs, its counter productive to stop for anything else

    invoker crus should not struggle with toughness really, with akarats awakening you can run akarat's champ and iron skin a lot in big packs that boosts toughness considerably, justice lantern and a lot more defensive rolls than other builds help with toughness overall

    Ill just add this, normally the game runs fine for me, but there are some slowdowns when there is a lot of stuff going on and when i take a peek in process explorer the cause is simple, single thread performance, when there is a ton of stuff going on the calculations max out one core and the game slows down a bit, granted my cpu isnt the best at single thread performance (fx-8320e @ 4,5) but still, you might want to check your per core usage when the fps drops, because overall it shows me sub 20% usage even during the slowdowns because only a single core is truly loaded

    posted a message on Justice Lantern does not exist!

    its all RNG, last season i had to get hexing pants off a friend to cube for my ww barb because they have never dropped for me, this season i had some trouble getting a decent golden flense, and akarat's awakening is a bitch to find good, otherwise its a pretty decent spread of all possible uniques

    posted a message on AMD Radeon + D3 = Bad Mix

    i have played d3 on three different radeon cards (3870, 6770 and now 290x), and only had ONE issue with one particular card that was driver related and rolling back to an older driver temporarily fixed it before amd did it themselves in a futer release, assuming your card is not broken the problem definitely lies elsewhere

    monk or dh for fastest, crus or barb for 'safest', wizard and wd are only an option if you know the class real well, playing your first hc char is all about not taking unnecessary risks

    posted a message on bane of the stricken ?

    it only procs on one mob regardless of how many mobs you hit, if its from an aoe skill then it procs on the first mob hit

    its icd is now reduced by ias (so you stack faster with more attack speed) but is supposedly capped at 5 stacks per second (not confirmed tho, just something i read somewhere)

    Both your monk and sader should easily do gr70, especially since you're softcore so just bruteforce it

    posted a message on low fps..

    every time i take my car out for a drive it slows down, why is that ? well what kind of car is it, what roads, what conditions, what fuel... you see where im going with this ? you provided us with NO definitive information regarding your problem, if you truly care about getting a solution you need to present as much information as possible even if you think its irrelevant, everything from computer specs, to specific areas of the game or conditions where these fps drops happen

    posted a message on How Do I Make The Most Of Bane Of The Stricken?

    Stricken is really a single target gem, mostly used for the advantage it gives vs RG, its icd is reduced with increased attack speed so the faster you attack the faster it stacks, up to supposedly a max of 5 stacks per sec, some specs really take advantage from it, while others can totally skip it (LoN bomb, shadow impale dh), its up to you whether you have trouble with single big tough mobs or not

    posted a message on Hammers 2.4?

    well it was buffed in damage and they added a new supportive legendary affix to hammer jammers pants, there were some ~80 gr clears on ptr so it should be viable-ish

    posted a message on How do i get more legendaries??

    basicly you can do two things to increase the number of legendaries per hour

    1) increase your chances of finding legendaries, so magic find gem and gear, and playing on higher difficulties

    2) increase your farming speed, the more rifts you clear the more legendaries you'll find

    posted a message on Reroll damage off my weapon

    if you're using thorns bombardment the weapon damage portion of it is so miniscule that weapon dmg is a waste of a stat and 1k vit with heart of iron would be a much bigger boost, not to mention the added health

    posted a message on Augment Ancient Items on Thorn Build...
    STR vs VIT:
    Assuming Iron Maiden and 300% Heart of Iron an extra 280 STR gem is better than an extra 280 VIT gem when ((2.8x Current Thorns)/1260)*100 > Current STR The amount of thorns at which STR is better than VIT is:

      6000 STR – a STR gem is better with more than 27000 Thorns


      7000 STR – a STR gem is better with more than 31500 Thorns


      8000 STR – a STR gem is better with more than 36000 Thorns


      9000 STR – a STR gem is better with more than 40500 Thorns


      10000 STR – a STR gem is better with more than 45000 Thorns


    So VIT is never better for any realistic combination of STR and Thorns

    Quote from entrogo-next

    according to reddit thorns interactions thread there is a curious one with the horse, if you equip (or cube) envious blade that gives 100% crit chance when mob has full health it makes the first tick of horse crit, it uses regular crit damage, if you were to stack it, you could potentially quadruple your first damage tick power, probably enough to one shot all t10 whites save for the really tough ones (i have tested this myself and it is working)


    It is working with Thorns horse, or with the fire horse?
    thorn horse, thats why it was curious, it wouldnt be anything special if it worked with fire horse since crit works with it anyway

    posted a message on Thorns DPS Calculator?

    the calculations are not all correct, but it is the closest you can get afaik and you can always take the raw values from the simulated char sheet and just do the math yourself


    edit : also i recommend checking this reddit thread about what works with thorns and not

    posted a message on Your preferred method of TX rifting?

    1) mostly elites or really big packs of whites

    2) 95% of the time i open chests

    3) i pick up the usual legendaries and mats, an odd item when fast clicking may get in there but i dont stop for them

    4) depends on the group setup, if im clearing i usually go fast, if im just running around picking up stuff i always go for the orbs

    5) yes, close instantly after rg, loot, tp, horse to orek

    posted a message on Hexing pants with LoN crus build

    hexing pants are an overall damage multiplier much in the same way that akarat's champion is and therefore works with thorns and thorn related skills in this patch


    hexing pants is additive with : akarat's champion, holy cause, heavenly strength
