    Regarding #4.

    They could add categories just so you could have the illusion of better chances for a specific kind of item. But then they would reduce the drop chance of furnace to compensate and we would be at the square one. That is how bureaucracy works, and that is Bli$$ard works.

    posted a message on New To Level 70
    Before, I would suggest you to start at T1 rifts. But these days I'm fairly confidant that you can just jump right into T6 rifts where people compete who will carry the group with insanely inflated damage. So your lack of damage or utility won't be noticeable at 90% of the time I guess. You should just do your best to stay alive and keep up with the speed because these days guys don't stop at all once they get going.

    Once you join T6 rifts, it will take a couple of hours to get the basic gear....

    posted a message on Enforcer vs Bane of the Powerful: Oversight?
    I'm a casual player so I'm not really competent to speak of this matter but the obvious difference between the two is 15yd range around the player slow effect to trigger it's use, while BoTP works at all ranges. On higher GRs as I understand any mob can one shot you so you don't want to be in melee range as a wizard or DH. Wizards want to keep that 50yd range for the effectiveness of their skills where BoTT is certainly useless.

    posted a message on drop chance for seasonal characters?
    Please don't mind the subject, I really tried to find the topic on the internet but there's no clarification on the legendary drop chance for seasonal characters?

    I'm looking to start seasonal character/s at the beginning of season 2 and I'm wondering about this. Do seasonal characters have a higher/bigger chance to get legendary items? New items are not my interest as much as the efficiency of acquiring them.

    It's really strange that Blizz didn't specify about this, but it can mean that it isn't any better.

    Anyway, thank you.

    Hello, I'm completely inexperienced and started playing after a long break. I don't exactly understand how this works? Based on the prevous post, "Leecher" is I presume a char who is gaining levels while there needs to be another person doing the one-shotting? But then, this technique can be applied to all areas, why just Fields of Misery? In any case, it could never be accomplished solo by the person who is leveling? And why does he have to be parked at the checkpoint? He could stay anywhere where he is out of reach of mobs?

    3 pages of pain and agony...Feels like you actually didn't leveled-up your DHs by yourselves. How can you be so blind not to realize how Ball Lightning was and will be the best choice for an Elemental Arrow ability. It is the best AOE ability in the game beside zombie bears.

    I don't even know why did you like nether Tentacles so much because we all got 1 shotted no matter what, and those 3% heal was useless because there was nothing to heal.

    Take a look at PsyStarcraft videos if you already haven't. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=US8Cs06qCAA&list=UUdbL-i29FDPYok8X8yIynNQ&index=1&feature=plcp

    He has very similar amount of resistances if not the same. He has been farming Izkatu (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VnEOcA32-Fs&list=UUdbL-i29FDPYok8X8yIynNQ&index=7&feature=plcp) with around 800 resistances. But he has more daamge and you can see him using 2H instead of 1H and shield. So he is kinda breaking the rules in terms of "must use a shield" if you want to survive.

    posted a message on Criticism towards itemization in Diablo III
    Quote from Beengalas

    ‘Conclusion’
    Years as a student within political science has put its mark, this is a long thread where I go quite deep into the subject. It is however unpolished and rough as I wont waste more time on disposition and language. Personally, I believe that the most likely reason for the current itemization is that Blizzard tried to give their customer a high degree of randomness, believing that is what the general player wants. Overestimating how much random stuff the people want which gave the result with the bad legendaries, which puts the focus on the rare items. And not want people to chase after the legendaries as they chase the unique in Diablo II. This have backfired thou, because the general player wants to collect legendaries. Legendaries are supposed to be cool stuff!


    This is very interesting post. I thank you for the time you spent writing it.
    However, it lacks of more global understanding of a project above the surface, and not just below the surface; meaning that you should have added are your thoughts from the company's perspective rather than just from the game's perspective.

    ActivisionBlizzard is a multi billion dollar company that operates in several continents with stock/share holders that have extreme!!! ambitions/interests that are just getting higher and more serious with every project. Before their any public move is made, they have legions of lawyers, designers, programmers of all kinds, business administrators, psychologists -- employed to make sure that nothing can harm them and that they will only profit. Unfortunately, when it comes to extreme companies such as this one, we are only limited to a few people such as Bashiok, Cris Metzen and Jay Wilson, which behave as company's PR beside their regular jobs. So having all that in mind its very hard to talk about itemization because we have no clue about what is behind their stock/share holders agenda (and people such as Bashiok, Jay wilson..are just following orders from people we never heard about).

    "Corporate bastards" are shareholders / stockholders behind Blizz Activision who keep the budget down and that is why we are experiencing server unstability issues for every single game launch. Game developers and designers are great people who keep bringing great titles, but they are not shareholders and therefore they have no vote in company's decision making.

    Quote from burninfate

    Quote from axeman87

    So I've taken the day of work to play D3 and have spent the afternoon just looking at a login screen with errors.

    I don't care about Blizzards technical issues, thats not my problem. They are a company like any other, selling a product that I have purchased that so far doesn't work. They have chosen to make a game that requires internet and server access even for a single player experience. I have no issues with technical issues when I'm trying to play online multiplayer but this... is just ludicrous.

    I have a wife, young daughter and a demanding job and my time is very precious and for this reason I have actually taken time off work to play D3 as I have very little time to do it in my day to day life. I don't want to go for a walk, get something to eat or chill out. I had taken time of work, using holiday pay and causing more work to go back to tomorrow for nothing.

    In about 30 minutes It'll be time to go and pick up my daughter, put on some dinner and then it'll be back to daily grind tomorrow and trying to squeeze in an hour each night of free time to play D3... thats if its working of course.

    Sounds like you have no idea how a game works, or how a game that has thousands if not millions of people connecting to servers. If you are a father and have a wife I would think you to be more responsibly and logical. Look at any past blizzard launch, at one point in time the servers go down, it always happens. Do not get upset that you can not play, be upset that you wasted your own time. Do not come on the forums and complain when Blizzard has done this for 7 + years.

    Why are you defending corporate bastards??? They have so much money that you cannot even imagine! Don't you think that the least Blizzard should have done was to ensure server stability after years of waiting for game development and 6 months launch delay? They surely could have spend a few millions for more/better servers.

    And GIVE THE OP A BREAK!!! He regularely bought the game and he deserved to play on 00:01 like every other player!

    I completely agree with OP. Blizzard is a multimillion dollar company. This is not their first game and they knew that millons of players will jamm the servers. Therefore, they should have taken steps to ensure that every player has smooth experiance for 5 years of waiting this game to come. Its the same thing all over again. And it is going to be the same after every game/expansion launch. It is unexceptable.

    Put on a protective vest and let someone shot you with a a gun in the chest. That will most likely break one of your ribs. If it doesn't work, repeat the step until it breaks. This is confirmed to work and will definitely solve your problem.

    However, D4 will probably come out in 15-20 years from now on which will give you enough time to get sick and tired of playing D3. Then, you will probably regret of losing your job or hurting yourself. If I were you, I would just go to work and play in my free time like I will do.

    Think several years after the release. Collectors will surely pay for it generously. I think the longer you wait, the better price you will be able to get. Especially when it becomes scarce.

    posted a message on The Current Least Popular Class?
    I cant believe that people think WD is least playable. WD is the only class that has a little bit of every class and plus more. Playing a WD is just as effective as playing other classes even without minions. YOu can focus on Direct dmg, AoE dmg, CC, minions, or on all mentioned. The most fun class to play, and it greatly scales with levels and gear.

    posted a message on DIABLO 3 GAMEPLAN!
    Quote from ArcaneWeapon

    Quote from CorDa616

    My gameplan is LITERALLY going to be this.

    Ten steps before

    1) Camp outside gameshop for midnight release for my CE
    2) Get home and hug the box to my body for about five minutes
    3) Slowly open it, I might even see a light coming from it as I open it
    4) Unbox everything, placing it delicately on my bed
    5) Scan over it lovingly for about a minute
    6) Place the skull next to my screen, inserting the soulstone with care
    7) Grab the game, rip over the cover and pop the dvd into the drive in record time
    8) Start installing
    9) Very impatiently wait for it finish with all the updates, patches and other stuff.
    10) Squeal like a little girl when I start playing and die of happiness


    Not to ruin your carefully laid plans, but why are you planning on installing from CD instead of doing it on Monday in advance so you can play right away?

    As far as I understand Collector's Edition will not be available online.

    Quote from Machine

    A better question would be: What good skills do other classes bring to a group in inferno?

    ^That! Seriously, WD is so far the most versatile class. WD can adjust its spells and runes according to team combo to be more CC oriented (so far the best CC in game), or direct damage oriented, or AoE oriented, or Conjurer. It can also provide some buffs for the group if required.

    I was wondering this myself for a very long time. Its like item stats will be major spoilers :S . They should have updated the item database ages ago but they didn't. The point is that game will be available on that same Monday night and any kind of information on the web site will be completely useless since we will rather play the game in search for knowledge than visit diablo 3 web site. Blizz failed on this one.

    posted a message on WD Inferno team build
    Hmmmm...you are too far ahead of yourself simply because it will definitely take a while even for a hard core player to reach Inferno. And by that time we will know everything about our spells, which means that your (as well as every current build based on theory crafting) will be changed many many many times before you reach inferno.

    1. Fire bats - you might want to replace it with Zombie Charger (with any rune) because it will deal more dmg to a single and AOE. Acid Cloud (in any rune) seems a nice replacement to Firebats in that slot.

    2. Haunt - well it is still quite unclear is it better than Locust Swarm. Anyways, whichever spell you choose between these two will be a good choice. However, Draining Spirit rune for Haunt is 100% useless (unless they change the amount) because these 10.2 mana per second is way tooo insignificant comparing to thousands and thousands of mana you will have in manapool by the time you reach inferno difficulty. That being said, Locust Swarm probably is a better choice because of runes that provide max damage output.

    3. Mass confusion - it has 60 sec CD and that can probably be too long in inferno difficulty. However, Horrify is probably a better choice than Mass confusion simply because it has 20 sec CD and provides equally effective CC which is more practical for group play. And 20 second cd would definitely work better with Grave Injustice -- you would be able to practically spam Horrify while other players and pets peel.

    4. Zombie handler passive - somehow it seems trivial for a group play. But, you might consider replacing it with Circle of Life (which will give you all 3 zombie dogs permanently until they die), and in that case you could replace the Summon Zombie Dogs spell for another spell.

    5. Jungle Fortitude - while it definitely is important for higher difficulties later on, Pierce of Veil passive might be a better choice for a team play when you have a melee to tank for you. And also, that 30% mana incraese from Pierce of Veil will be completely insignificant to thousadns of mana in mana pool afteer you start grinding hell or inferno gear.

    I hope this helped you in a way.

    I dont mind 'annual pass' no more than other business related things. Ever since they got married to Activision, they only care about money. However, I am extremly against such statements as this: "...We have listened to our fans for years and decided to come out with...". They only need our buck and can't care less about our opinions.

    Quote from Klusterboy

    difficulties are the same.

    the two exeptions are for hc:

    death = game over for your char

    no RMAH

    This is incorrect, the devs have stated that monsters get new abilities on each increasing difficulty, as well as the obvious increased hp/damage and moving faster. They also changed the AI, they will be smarter in trying to move to you and attack you.

    Edit: This is ofcourse assuming he was actually asking the difference between DIFFICULTY levels and not HC/SC

    Yes, this is exactly what I needed to know. If anyone knows more specific details about those 'new abilities' and AI behavior changes please post them here.

    I noticed one thing. When I played my hardcore character (normal difficulty) mobs had a strange ability that occasionally poped some sort of banners around them (in Cathedral), unlike softcore (normal difficulty) gameplay where that thing didn't happen.

    After playing open beta for weekend I noticed that softcore character on normal and hardcore char on normal difficulty is about the same except that hardcore normal mobs were more agressive (i.e. dont stop chasing you). I wonder how will it be like playing normal and hardcore characters on higher difficulties.

    Can anyone share more info on this?
