  • posted a message on PSA: No perma immunity anymore in 2.2
    Quote from Ashesgo-next

    While I fully support this change I think they need to do it together with some change to difficulty scaling in GRs. In any case we'll probably see a few iterations of the change in PTR before its release to live.


    Perma-immunity is just a bad game mechanic, period. It needs to be dealt with.


    Part of the issue is the timer putting pressure on people to hurry. It's not like it was way back in vanilla, when people would pull enemies away from each other and strategically kite, isolate and pick at their targets.


    Nobody does this anymore due to time constraints, all we see are people jumping in head first and hoping for the best. I'm not advocating removing the timer, but that aspect has led to a cautious-less approach to Diablo combat. I feel the true solution is for them to develop numerous, innovative mitigation gears. The new Legendary gem is a good start, but we need way more of that kind of thinking. Perhaps even hybrid gears that give both a heavy defensive bonus, as well as adding something offensive, so that players aren't picking their gear in such a black and white (damage or defense) mentality.


    The solution to this problem is GEAR, not game mechanics.

    I was blown back that they choose this stupid item out of all the great suggestions people gave them. Them choosing this item just shows that they continue to think small.

    I'm very confused about all this. I haven't found a straight forward comprehensive summary of exactly what they intend to do with this micro-pay scheme.


    All I want is a far deeper level of complexity given to character building and gearing.........I hope the intent of micro-pay is to provide them with the monetary backing to aggressively attack the dumbed down design of diablo 3.

    HA! none taken. I checked out obituary on your recommendation. heard of them but never listed to em before..i like it!! im a rabid fan of terrible awful vocals mind you....the worse they are the more I like them..


    I can't explain why, but I quickly moved away from the "ARRRRRRGH" vocals genre. However I'm glad I stumbled into this thread. It's led me to revisit some music I haven't heard since the very early 1990's. Some of this shit I haven't heard since I sat watching the walls dance in an LSD induced psychosis as a teenager ((I'm almost 43 BTW)).


    Since we're all hoodlums here, I'll share a story about this song/LP in-particular;

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVVTOHVXQQA


    Slowly We Rot/Obituary. A true classic of the genre from 1989, and some of the best riffs Death Metal ever witnessed. There was a small group of us sitting around jamming out to Slowly We Rot, smoking copious amounts of dope and popping micro dot. One of the hoods had a metal pentagram necklace and he had the idea that we heat up the pentagram and burn the shape into our forearms.


    Being the dastardly bastard that I am, I volunteered to go first. So we clamped a pair of hemostats to the forlorn talisman (I say "forlorn" for a reason, keep reading) and began heating it up with one of those cheap Chinese lighters that you can crank the amount of outgoing butane way up. I held my arm outstretched on a table, forearm pointed up, and the pentagram just above it so as to be able to apply it quickly while still red hot.


    As it turns out, the craftsmanship of said pentagram talisman wasn't what one would expect from the likes of Satan. It was apparently made from die-cast metal, which has an unfortunately low melting point. As if the talisman was obeying a command, it suddenly burst into a molten liquid state and began to furiously drip upon my arm like lava running through a straw hut situated just below an evacuating volcano.


    The pain was mighty, as well as the howls of sadistic joy from my "friends". Some 25 years later, the remnants of that day are still visible on my forearm today. Multiple, reddish dots adorn my arm, as if to remind me that the indestructibility of youth is a fleeting concept one should not explore lightly.

    Slayer is not death/black metal although it's awesome indeed... But Benighted >all death metal bands tbh, especially the most recent albums.


    I'm not sure the exact sound of "death metal" was ever specifically quantified. Slayer's older works were as "Death-ly" as death metal can be. Hell Awaits was the grimmest, most crunchy, evil LP they ever did IMO.


    The best song to kill a dying pet to;

    I'd love to hear your take on the Carnifex cover of Angel of Death.




    Sounds a lot like a werewolf. The music cover was solid, but those vocals........that's some clown shit right there, no offense intended. I'm not much into the fake, synthesized monster vocals. Back when I was a teen and taking copious amounts of LSD, I enjoyed Obituary. Then I stopped experimenting with hallucinogens and it sounded like someone stuck dog shit in my ear and lit it on fire. Very much the same opinion of the band Obituary. Solid instrumentals, terrible vocals.

  • posted a message on Quitting the season2 already...

    I took a break several weeks ago, figuring to keep myself fresh for 2.2 and I would pick it back up then. But......I just can't get myself back into Diablo 3. Tried again today, organized my seasonal items switch-over to non-season......but didn't even leave town. I logged out after 5 or 6 minutes. 3 years and thousands of hours later, I just can't get back into it. It may take an xpac to get me to play again....not sure.


    I can't help but to feel that if we had trading and PvP, I'd be able to find some endgame fun in D3.
