Sorry to hear it, mate. I definitely feel your pain as I just lost a 20-30m+ geared char doing everyday faceroll runs much the same as you were but, instead, I lost it to a 50 second lag spike. No amount of gear or smart play can prepare you for that.
I don't think I have the time to do it again but it was a fun ride. Good luck to you if you decide to give it another shot!

Sooooooooo glad it's over, :D. No more OCD-ish need to re-do all the achievements every time there is a new patch. Haha. Oh how glorious it will be to finally venture past Leoric's room. There is also a much stronger feeling that we really are on the home stretch now that the Beta is over. It's like a theatre show where they draw the curtains, do some brief costume changes, and then reveal the next scene. Ah how full of anticipation this intermission shall be!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I just wish they had fixed the HC queueing system before it ended so that I could equip my new 18.4dps wand, :(. Nearly had a (sooo close to) perfectly equipped Beta Wizard! I hope this bug doesn't come back to bite us when the full thing is released.

They're not going to ban for BETA. If something similar happened in retail (say, trial accounts got the full version via some exploit) then they might ban but that's in RETAIL, not BETA. Besides, there were no 3rd-party programs, exploitation of game mechanics or anything even vaguely similar employed to gain some form of advantage in this instance. People simply tried to log in and succeeded. That's a fault of Blizz, not the players.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
And now the Beta is down for those of us who had access anyway, :(, lol.

Battletags can be changed, Patch 16 Changes, Battle.net Mobile Alerts, Blue Posts, Micky Neilson Interviewposted a message onBut you can't change to the same BattleTag. So if yours is Generic#6433 it won't let you create a new Generic#xxxx ... has to be different. Also it is definitely just a one-time thing. Tested on a secondary account :/.Posted in: News & Announcements

Don't want to discourage anyone from going for it, but I have a feeling a hardcore level 60 might not happen for weeks. There will be so many unknowns in the game that can outright kill you, that there will be a HUGE learning curve for playing Hardcore.
/agree with this... well, except perhaps the 'weeks' thing. Regardless of whether or not it is as hard as the developers like to claim it is, going straight at it with a HC character is going to be a tough goal. Rushing blindly in with absolutely zero experience in any of the significant difficulties, and especially doing so with a mindset to get to <insert goal> first, can only lead to a lot of deaths. More than likely some hardcore but more careful players will get there before any who try to rush it straight out of the gates. And if that's not the case, then Blizz is doing something wrong and will most definitely be eating their 'you will die' words. Heh.
Shrug. I guess we'll see how it goes. Shall be interesting. I would have loved to have a shot at this a few years ago, but now there's work and a girl and all that other stuff to think about, :), so going to take it slow (but still play whenever I get a moment free!).

PFT, my bank got compromised and some people cleaned out my checking. ($500) I was in Korea at the time, NOT using my card at all. I was just using it to pay back loans. Got it all back though. $1.67 ain't nothing.
This is why I always take a low-limit CC if I go overseas. Much better to lose $500-1000 than $5000-10000+.
Quote from silent.knife.speaks.Yeah, I hadn't thought of physical scanners in a store, I guess that could have happened. As for other sites, I don't think I've put my details in for months. It's sounding likely that it's a virus, but I'm a bit worried about what happens if the scan doesn't pick anything up. Just out of curiosity, how many of you use virtual keyboards to type in your bank info?
I should but am too slack (and generally trust my own security). Do Comm bank even offer this? Or do you mean the Windows one? Speaking of which, you gotta love banks that LIMIT your password to 8 chars or 6 chars or something. Not that it really matters with keyloggers, but it's quite hilarious how poor the restrictions on some of those online portals is.

Yeah, this is pretty much guaranteed to be something other than Blizz, sorry to say (or not sorry, as it's probably reassuring that this isn't Blizz! heh).Posted in: General Discussion
Also, you say "online recently" which I assume means you've used it online in the past. This would thus mean that any previous vendors you've dealt with could have easily been compromised and your details taken.
And what about at an actual store? I've had my CC card scanned and used without my permission by a random store (can't remember which) in Chinatown when I visited Sydney a year or two ago. This is actually the primary reason I still have a credit card with Commonwealth Bank, like yourself, as they are very good with picking up on this sort of thing... and it's so common these days that you're likely to be hit at some point regardless of how careful you are. I'm more than happy to pay Comm Bank's exorbitant fees for peace of mind.

I remember reading about this a while ago but never actually noticed it in the game itself. I think I must just be too jaded from all those MMORPGs I've played where players happily craft.... anything.... anywhere... without blinking an eye. I especially love LotRO where you just whip out some massive crafting utensil wherever you're standing (also capable of spinning around you at light speed) and go nuts.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Oh, sidetracked... umm, anyway, in the grand scheme of game issues, I'd imagine this is incredibly low on the priority list right now. In fact, I wouldn't be at all surprised if it were never 'fixed'. Such is life. Maybe in an expansion.
