Blizzard just trademarked the name "The Dark Below". Considering the "special announcement" during gamescon it could be the name of the Diablo 3 expansion (DLC?). Or it could be the next World of Warcraft expansion. Your opinion?

Since there is no public Auction House API, I am pretty sure this data is gathered by something which Blizzard would classify "third party software". Very useful though.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Pets trigger the Life on Hit for YOU, but not for themselves (Fierce Loyalty makes no difference). So the pets will die just as fast, but they may heal you for the 2 seconds they are alive.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Damage does not matter, life on hit always returns the amount regardless of damage. However, you cannot get life on hit when the 'immune' text pops up (i.e. shield, invunerable minions).Posted in: Theorycrafting and Analysis
As for what counts as 'hit'... it is clearly not everytime a damage number pops up. As far I can call, 'hit' is basically defined as 'usage of attack skill and have it actually hit something'. So all AES will only count as one hit, regardless of how many monsters are actually hit.

I feel like an idiot running around in inferno shooting a blow dart.
This. At first I thought Inferno was just unplayable. However with Splinters and high Dmg, IAS, Crit, etc items you actually can make progress. However it is not really fun for me. We got an arsenal of fancy nukes, but the best way of playing is using a Level 6 rune and spitting needles on Demons. Lame

I don't get it, why does repeating the sequence in the video level you up fast? There is no boss even, so which part of this gives the exp actually? The quest?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

Basically this day damage is king. Those super fast packs cannot be kited, so your only chance is to burst them down. Spirit Barrage is decent single target damage, but nothing compared to bears. I can kill most of the Inferno champion packs by running in the middle of them Spirit Walk -> Mass Confusion (with 20% damage rune) -> Fetish Army -> Big Bad Voodoo and them spam Zombie Bears. Keep in mind there is no global cooldown in Diablo 3, so you can basically trigger all those ability at once.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Yes, I do know there are quite some fire based spells in the witch doctors spellbook to choose from. I just wanted some opinions from other WDs farming in Inferno. Do you really skill into two different damage types to have a chance against a large range of super packs or do you go for highest DPS with Splinters and Zombie Bears and just skip Plagued supers?Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

I am running a burst damage Zombie Bears build for Inferno. Since the key to getting good drops is the nephalem valor buff, I am trying to focus on champion / boss packs. Some are actually doable, but many are not for me. One thing I noticed is I am having big troubles with the Plagued attribute. I have no troubles avoiding the green puddles on the floor, but I felt I was doing very low damage to those monsters.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
So I looked it up and it seems Plagued monsters are very resistant to poison damage, Molten are resistant to fire, Frozen are resistant to cold and Eletrified are resistant to lighting damage.
How do you deal with it? The problem is the highest Poison Dart rune is Splinters, which deals also poison damage. So basically the build I am using just deals very large amounts of poison damage...should I maybe use the rune which turns Poison Dart into fire damage?
And as another consequence this makes me think that Holy or Physical damage are the very best damage types, because there is no resistance attribute on champion / boss packs against those damage types. There are many high DPS weapons in the auction house, most of them with large amounts of fire/lighting/poison/cold damage. Some however got holy or just plain damage bonuses... shouldn't those be superior to the elemental ones?
