    posted a message on Damage type of abilities with multiple active runes?

    Certain set/legendary items have effects like "Soul Harvest gains the effect of every rune" or "Locust Swarm gains the effect of the Pestilence rune".


    However certain runes (like Searing Locusts) change the damage type of that ability (from poison to fire, for example).


    How do i choose which damage type my ability will inflict when i am using such items that "enforce" a certain rune (or all runes) upon that ability?


    It is rather important since i have bonuses such as "20% increased poison damage" and i definitely need to make sure my abilities are of the proper damage type.

    Sometimes it is beneficial to have a specific (skill menu) rune damage type active, while at others it is better to have an "enforced" rune damage type active while still having a certain other rune selected in the skill menu.

    posted a message on How do DoTs and Pets work with temporary damage/intel buffs?

    I recently resumed playing my WDoctor and i was curious about how do temporary bonuses like Endless Walk (traveler's pledge & compass rose) and Convention of Elements work with spells like Locust Swarm and Haunt.


    If i am affected by Endless Walk or ConOfElements at the moment when i cast Locust Swarm or Haunt, will those DoTs be affected by such damage bonuses for the entire DoTs duration?

    Or do those damage bonuses expire as soon as the damage buffs themselves vanish, hence the DoTs return to normal damage?


    Pretty much the same questions but about Pets instead of DoTs - does it matter when i summon pets in regards to temporary damage/intellect buffs?


    Thank you for helping me out :)

    posted a message on What is needed to unlock extra stash award in Season 9?

    I am honestly not a fan of seasons but the extra stash space award is really useful (affects both season and non-season).

    I recall blizzard changing stuff about season rewards in the past few patches but i do not remember what.


    My diablo 3 is slowly being downloaded so i can not open up the game and read from there.

    So what is currently needed for the extra stash award in Season 9?

    posted a message on Daiblo 4 or new game in Diablo Universe ?

    I would be thrilled for a Diablo 2 rework, full HD with great textures and high resolutions.


    As far as Diablo 4 goes... i honestly do not know.

    Main thing i miss in diablo 3 is atmosphere and excitement.


    Diablo 3 feels like a game where all you do is grind, and the highest form of fun is improving DPS by some numerical value.

    I still play Diablo 2 just for the awesome atmosphere and adventure, without even bothering with some numerical bullshiet.

    posted a message on What Wizard spells/runes can trigger Strongarm Bracers?

    Interesting, i was hoping that there are more spells that trigger it.


    Does the Teleport with Wave of Force rune (calamity?) trigger strongarm bracers?

    posted a message on What Wizard spells/runes can trigger Strongarm Bracers?

    I am a big fan of Strongarm Bracers (enemies hit by knockback suffer 30% more damage for 5 seconds), but i just recently got my wizard to lvl70.


    I got no idea which spells/runes are capable of activating the Strongarm Bracers, especially since it is not always obvious (WD Piranhas activate it without actually doing knockback).


    So which Wizard spells/runes are good for activating the benefits of Strongarm Bracers?

    posted a message on Starting the Season 5 - Wizard or Demon Hunter?

    I am going to start playing Season 5 with a friend, we want to reach the "Conqueror" for the extra stash (not in a hurry).

    I have not played much since 2.4 arrived so i do not know how the new/changed item sets actually perform.

    Currently i am choosing between Wizard and Demon Hunter (my friend will probably go for a melee class).


    What is your preference between these 2 classes for Season 5 and why?

    Don't forget to vote in the poll above :)

    posted a message on Questions about the Witch Doctor in rifts/grifts.

    I wanted to ask the more experienced WDoctors about certain aspects of our class in rifts/grifts:


    1. If i have the Haunting Girdle and the Resentful Spirits rune (+1 haunt spirit each), can all 3 Haunt spirits hit the same target?
    2. If all 3 Haunt spirits can hit the same target, can they also proc all the bonuses the Jade Harvester set gives?
    3. Does Soul Harvest (with Jade Harvester) actually reduce the duration of our applied DoTs every time it is used?
    4. Do the Haunt and Locust Swarm spells auto-cast by certain items (like Wormwood) fully stack with a manual cast of the same DoT?
    5. I rarely see "Pierce the Veil" and "Gruesome Feast" passives used, even though they sound like powerful damage boosts?
    6. Spirit Barrage, Acid Cloud, Sacrifice and Mass Confusion seem to be rarely used, what is wrong with them?
    7. What about Firebomb and Plague of Toads? Both spells seem fun but are underused?
    8. Can Zombie Dogs and Gargantuan actually do big DPS, or are they just a "meat shield" to tank damage?
    9. Is the Bad Medicine passive also applied by our pets when they deal Poison damage?

    Thank you for reading and helping me out :)

    posted a message on So we must play seasons to gain more Stash space?

    I see no mention of extra stash in any of the latest 2.4 previews.


    I hope blizzard rethinks this whole "must play season to improve your UI (stash" approach.


    A lot of people have ZERO interest in playing in seasons, we actually hate it.


    Starting from zero is one of the most boring and annoying things in diablo 3.

    Might of the EARTH set - SEISMIC slam.


    Seems like it is made for one another, but blizzard forgot about it? xD

    posted a message on Conqueror for stash space? Too hard for casuals

    I fully agree that improving stash space should be tied to a requirement/task.


    I disagree that it should be related to Seasons.


    I want to play on my characters that actually mean to me - not on a brand new naked Seasonal character that is boring to play and useless as soon as season is over.


    Just put the stash space upgrade behind something that both non-season and season players want to do...

    posted a message on Is there any estimate when patch 2.4 will be released?

    Does anyone know from past PTR testing (or from a blizzard comment) how long until patch 2.4 comes to live servers?


    I am honestly hoping it arrives as early as possible, perhaps even early December - but i got no idea is that realistic (probably not...).


    What do you fellas think, when is 2.4 arriving to the live servers?
