    posted a message on Rimeheart interaction with mob CC resistance for Vyr's build

    Sadly, Rimeheart still won't work out too well since the 10% proc is still after the proc coefficient of whatever ability you're using; in other words, even on a mob that's staying permanently frozen somehow despite the CC resistance, you'd still see an abysmal proc rate for most abilities. :(


    It's a pity, since it's such a neat weapon that should lend itself to being built around the proc, and yet doesn't because of how terrible the proc rate is.

    Good.._job. Rerolling its bonus damage for a socket. You are either high or very stupid. I assume youll soon reply that you've never been high before. Luckily for you bis gear isn't rare.
    Oh don't be a dick. It's pretty easy to accidentally roll the wrong affix if you aren't double checking it.
    While yes such a mistake is possible (and i've done it once myself) to then screenshot and make a post about it without even realizing the mistake is a completely different story...
    I'm pretty sure OP realized exactly what he did wrong, and slapped himself in the forehead after spending 25 souls and realizing he'd rerolled the damage affix. It was screenshotted so OP could share his embarrassment with us.

    As for Jekangboard, I, personally, have not really become convinced of it being genuinely that strong. Yeah, it's super duper OP when you have a horde pack all crammed up in your face, but over half the time, let's face it: your blessed shield only HAS about 4 targets to hit in immediate range Most elite packs are 1-4 mobs or so, and if they're a ranged pack of any sort, they're probably not grouped up enough for the shield to bounce between all of them, so you only occasionally get used out of the extra shields from Jekang bouncing around.
    It can bounce multiple times between 2 targets. 9 Blessed Shield impacts spread over 2 targets (bonus points if its Combust and in range of AoE) does massive damage. Of course, genuine "single" target its awful :) But you don't need 9 targets to get the max number of bounces out :)
    Are you absolutely positive about this? Because so often I've seen it bounce just a twice or so and then immediately return to me when there aren't enough targets in range.

    Ouch. I wasted 20 souls on a helm the other day before realizing I'd rolled the wrong damn thing. Guuuh.

    posted a message on Gyrfalcon's + Jekangboard
    Quote from Dziq86
    I've looted my Gyrfalcon's Foot about 3 days ago (running withJekangboard for over 3 weeks).


    After 2 days of testing, I must say that I'm a little disappointed. Maybe that's because the roll was pretty low (2k dps). I'm much faster with runningJekangboard + 2h than "theoretically OPGyrfalcon's Foot +Jekangboard combo".

    The visual is nice, shields playing pinball with every mob is absolutely awsome, but in the end You can kill 'em with one Blessed Shield for 20kk than 5x 6-7 kk.

    All above based on experience with holy + shattered rune.
    Gryfalcon's Foote is not so strong that you can make do with a crappily rolled one, not if you have a very good 2-hander sitting in your stash instead.

    Frankly, a very strong block shield that has some other powerful proc - such as, say Defender of Westmarch, or Coven's or Stormshield for tankyness - just feels much stronger to me.

    posted a message on Did they only buff the "crappy" legendaries??
    Yes, they've actually disabled the really rare ones. It is currently impossible to get Thunderfury right now for example, so you're probably better off not playing for the rest of the week. :)

    The top result of that google search is from 2012. It is entirely probably that the coefficients have changed since then. I'm also curious what the most up-to-date list may be.

    Seems pointless
    Don't see why,it would change it up a bit and get more people playing campaign mode.
    Why? If you want a rift, you go to adventure mode and open one. If you're in campaign mode, you're in it for a reason, aren't you?
    A little flavor in your game never hurt anybody.

    I've always been wary of it, because followers occasionally enjoy standing in deadly deadly arcane orbs or some crap... so now you have an undying follower blasting you with arcane orb damage.

    If it was brand new legendaries, tied to the boss in the way that the cache-legs are? That could be potentially nifty.

    Reroll the base damage. That thing rolled just about as low damage as it could possibly go. Rolling to 10% damage won't do anything for you because it's lightning damage, not black damage.

    posted a message on Thoughts on Akarat's Awakening vs Hellskull?
    Moving faster only really matters if it's enabling to clear faster. If you're able to move more quickly from pack to pack, it doesn't really matter if you're not able to kill things faster to keep up with the increased pace.

    Utilizing the Awakening proc will also depend greatly upon your spec, i.e. a blessed shield spammer is not going to get nearly as much use out of it as a build based fully around, say, Akarat's Champion /w Rally.

    posted a message on Legendary item chance revealed :(
    When they drop they'll drop. I just got my first Shard of Hate the other day, but a guy in my clan has seen 4 Thunderfury drops. I got a Witching Hour literally my first rift after 70, and just the other day got an Armor of the Kind Regeant, and my buddy got a Tasker and Theo out of a Loose Stone.

    The drop rates on legendary items are already so low that the fact that they have individually lower droprates hardly matters to me. When they drop, they'll drop. Might not be for a while, but whatever. Diablo is not a game where you're meant to have everything you want right away. Some people searched and farmed for literally YEARS before getting the super-rare item they wanted in D2, after all.
