    posted a message on Weapon +9-10% damage vs ~33% crit damage (firestarter)
    Quote from Taistelija
    Well I'm bored so...

    Basic formula: A*W*(1 + C*Cd)
    W = +% Weapon Damage
    Cd = Critical Damage
    C = Critical Chance
    A = All other stats compined into one constant

    You most likely have CDR from paragon points so rest 41 points in offensive goes to critical damage. So, currently you have the following stats:
    Cd = 378%, C = 44,5

    With 10% weapon damage on weapon: A*1,1*(1 + 0,445*3,78) = A*2,95031

    With 50% critical damage on ring: A*1,0*(1 + 0,445*4,28) = A*2,9046

    Conclusion: With your current gear & stats you will get more DPS having 10% damage on weapon rather than 50% critical damage on ring, if you want to keep 8% CDR on one of them.

    What is the DPS difference? (2,95031 - 2,9046) / 2,9046 = 0,01574 = 1,574% more damage
    Nice post.

    GREAT changes. MF amulets and helms will be about the only thing you need. If you had approximately 75% from those two slots you would theoretically be MF capped by Paragon level 75. If you had max MF in those two slots you could be capped by level 68.

    Quote from Ruppgu

    wow... just wow... sorry Wizards.

    It's not really the fact that they're nerfing energy twister that is the problem... I think it should be done... but...

    1.) So you're nerfing Energy Twister but not Sprint Tornadoes? How is that fair?
    2.) Your reason is legendary items? So you're balancing a skill on an item that the majority of people won't have? Also, what about barbs getting said legendary items? You don't care if they abuse the procs? Makes ZERO sense.
    3.) Those procs don't have internal cooldowns? Wow.... I figured any of those weapon procs would have internal cooldowns since that's HOW you balance it in cases such as these.

    It just doesn't make sense to nerf Wizard tornadoes and not Barb tornadoes (for the record I am a neutral party that plays a WD).

    Also... why did they focus the entire article on boring changes with Hydra and then barely talk about actual exciting changes (changes to meteor and arcane torrent). I don't know about most wizards, but I think they'd care more about those buffs because that's actually something that might promote build diversity... not buffing the damage on non-venom hydra. This is the first blog that was poorly done.

    The proc coefficient of Sprint Tornado was already less than WW. The changes aren't that big of a deal anyways if you have a high crit rate. The ability was insanely overpowered to begin with.

    Yeah, cool idea, just too many scammers to make it really viable.

    Yeah this stat could use a buff. Maybe take it to 40% effectiveness in inferno.

    I would like it better if it affected the entire group. Makes interesting for putting together 4 player groups. Can find a tank, glass cannon, and 2 others with MF/GF

    posted a message on How much gold have you sold?
    Quote from Papahjones

    ive earned at least around 30 mill a day on gold auctions. the last two weeks. If you check public games you would see people are still playing. People just dont buy the same items that you used to sell, perhaps you should consider checking the Ah more often to get some information about the items that are out there , and the items that actually sell.

    Best Regards

    He was asking about selling gold, not items worth gold. Also, simply looking at public games gives you a very terrible snapshot of who is still playing the game.

    There is no way they will let it be one-shotting if they are trying to legitimize this.
