    posted a message on The meaning of TurboHUD and why it is much more than just a hack

    To be fair I understand where the threadstarter is coming from. In World of Warcraft the most hardcore players have the option to install addons to improve their gameplay - people that just play for fun DO NOT neccesarily have to have these addons.


    My point being; if there would be addons like this for Diablo, only a selection of hardcore individuals would use them to kick their GR's up another notch. Those addons wouldn't be neccesary for casuals and therefore it won't make the game more difficult for them.


    Right now the game is all about paragon and gear checks. It would - in my opinion - be nice to have more of a 'skill check' and I think something like a built in TurboHUD might add a little more skill to the game. Why? Well... You see the monsters on the map, a skilled player will know what he can skip and when he can continu more so than someone who does not see this. This way it is easier to dodge projectiles, something that requires skill, but the game normally doesn't highlight these projectiles very well.


    Essentially I agree with the fact that some things in TurboHUD should have been integrated in this game a long time ago. Most specifically the locations of monsters and elites on the map and the highlighting of projectiles. For a good player the maphack isn't all that beneficial anyway. In many maps I know exactly what certain 'tiles' look like and I wouldn't even consider myself a good player. I'm more of a casual.

    posted a message on PTR 2.3 - How To Get Into The PTR Faster (Video)

    Played the PTR for a bit, but if you just want to know what cube quest is like and see how the cube works you don't need to spend more than 1 hour on PTR to be honest.

    posted a message on Monk dps feels low...
    I for one think it is absurd that a monk has to get 'spirit per second' on items in order to get your spirit going up. Why do wizard and witch doctor resources regenerate by themselves? As soon as I leave combat I lose 75 spirit (Sweeping Wind) and that takes quite some time to build back up using a 12-14 spirit per hit melee attack that - unlike all other classes resource gainers - did not receive a DPS buff! Wizards can even shoot theyr signature spells into the wall to get more arcane power, but we have to actually attack something.

    What I love about monk is that I can stun an elite pack to death using lashing tail kick. It is just too bad a wizard can black hole the same pack and kill it with 2-3 (insert random spell and build).

    Monk and barb really feel like they are useless without a Shard of Hate and possibly a Thunderfury. Pox Faulds, Thundergod and Andariels Visage could be added in the mix, but as you see it just adds more damage from items, because the initial monk spells are garbage when it comes to AOE and speed farming.

    Quote from Kekke88

    Damn, I wouldn't wanna play with you after seeing how you reacted after he died.


    I mean come on, he died and you whine about how he didn't tell you there were 2 packs there. No need to be a douche
    He whined on the monk, not the guy that died...

    You made an account just to say that?

    posted a message on Activation of Reaper of Souls
    I have ordered the boxed Reaper of Souls collectors edition, but as it has been delayed I was wondering if I could purchase the regular Reaper of Souls game key / digital purchase and then overwrite it with the collectors edition later. I am also wondering - if I can overwrite the key - if I will be able to use that key once more for another account or gift it to a friend.

    Thanks in advance.

    posted a message on I also need help with gearing.
    Your gear is amazing. You chose to go for full dex, it's not a bad thing but you need to be decently skilled and good at avoiding missiles and mortars. You will learn this in time. If this won't work out you can go for a more vit/resist oriented build. This will drastically lower your dps but it makes you able to take 2-3 hits. Note that that gear is A LOT more expencive and also used by monks. Another option is going for the Natalya's set to get the bonus discipline regeneration. This way you can cast smoke screen once every 3 seconds instead of once every 10 seconds (when you are not at full discipline obv.)

    Maybe you use a weird build? With smoke screen and preparation you should be able to kill most elite packs out of invisibility.

    As follower I'd suggest you to use a scoundrel with a bow that is ice enchanted, then give him the multi shot ability so he will slow monsters for you all the time.

    Hope this helps.

    posted a message on 1.1 Legendaries are worthless for active players
    This game is so much more like WoW then D2. In D2 legendarys were good, and not very rare, making them great to farm better gear (and crafted gear) note that rares have always been the best, just that it's "the other way around" (in D3 rares are easy to find and well rolled legendarys might be better than rares in 1.1)

    In WoW you will want to be fully equipped in Epics, Legendarys are the D3 equivalent of Epics.. I mean.. you're going to want to be fully equipped in PURPLZZZZZZ not blues! (or brownzz and not yellows!)

    It's really awkward that you farm all day and find hundreds of rares (which can be good) and only 1 legendary which you know will suck even before you ID it.

    posted a message on Wizard inferno gear and stats, can you giveme some tips?
    I can farm act III and IV in inferno by blizzard+hydra kiting while shooting a few piercing orbs every now and then.

    Spec: Venom Hydra, Snowbound Blizzard, Force Weapon, Force Armor, Shock Pulse Piercing orb, Teleport fracture
    Passive: Illusionist, galvanize ward (for reflect damage..), glass cannon

    Gear: I stack intellect, attack speed, crit, crit dmg and all resist (physical is most important). With enough armor and resistance to everything I won't die in 1 hit, that means my force armor will absorb almost all dmg and I take 35% of my hp as damage instead. I have only 17k hp and I always die in 3 hits. I have about 680 resistance to everything with a few over 760 (physic and fire).

    The amount might differ as OP said, but the items are the same. (But so is the difficulty :P)

    posted a message on Most efficient class for hell+?
    Suppose WD is easyest for soling. Have a solid tank (gargantuan) templar heals before it dies and many selfheal potential (hex with selfheal soul harvest with heal spirit walk with heal is what I use).

    I can farm inferno act 1 and 2 without much difficulty. 20k dps 42k hp WD.

    My friend (monk) died alot in act3-4 hell also, but when I gave him some vitality+dex+allresist items that problem was easily solved. Guess its the same for barb

    Someone nice enough to give me one of their guest pass codes so I can get some progress going before I get the game? I will reward you with let's say 10 salvaged blues or just a new guest pass when it arrives.

    I would appreciate it really really much!
    Thanks in advance!
