    posted a message on Diablo 3 Stash Improvement Ideas

    I wish you could just use the mouse wheel to scroll between tabs/chests while the stash is open. That would save me a lot of moving the mouse around.


    Search would be cool, and having maybe one or two private tabs per char would be nice as well.

    posted a message on Keep the traditional isometric perspective or try something new?

    Yeah, I would like to know how Whirlwind in circles would work. I guess you just throw up after a few minutes because the world around you spins so fast? I see a lot of current attacks that just would no longer work, or you wouldn't know what damage they did.

    posted a message on Making fun builds viable should be easier (LoN discussion)
    Quote from The Zephgo-next

    I guess easiest way would be by letting LoN give a reduced amount of damage increase for non-ancient. Like "100% increase damage for every ancient item equipped, non-ancient gives you half amount".

    I like that idea... last time I tried LoN build I was missing 3 ancient items, and 2 ancients were actually terrible rolls. Pretty sure that getting 50% for normal legendary items would have made the build more fun.

    Quote from Spirrego-next

    It's always a nightmare to get perdition as wd. What I try and do when running 70-75 solo's is to make sure the fight is within 1 procc + 1 spirit walk away from and entrance / exit of the level. That or save a shield pylon.

    Know all about Perdition, he killed two of my wd's last season :D

    Yeah, I hate this guy. He just popped up, must have killed like 4 elites at once and grabbed all the orbs. I also need to get my game up in planning better for the RG. Never had issues with them...


    Quote from TheDeanAlex

    Also, you can simply NOT play HC.

    There is no such option. I'm ok with dying and starting over again, I just was stunned how hard(core) WD turned out. Survival was never a deal for
    my other chars (ok, I'm no pushing insane GR's).


    Quote from Filth ...


    Wait.. you're playing HC solo without 2x Unity?..
    Also,
    keep Soul harvest up man. And don't play JH. It's crap. I mean, it's
    fine, but it's the only build currently somewhat viable that has 0
    innate defensive perks while demanding melee range.
    I had one unity, lost it with char 1. Spent all my blood shards since to get more... its like the ring of emptiness, very rare :) (for me). Guess I'll try Zuni set next (thats the only one I haven't lost on a char yet). And no more high level play until i got double unity and defense gems up. I learned my WD lesson the hard time.

    I think that helps, WD was fun up to T8 and GR<50... maybe I switch over to wizard since I can re-use some items. I don't see my casual play style to get me to the self-set goal of getting the extra stash-tab with a WD.


    I always though DH's are easiest to fall over, but i looks like WD isn't any better.


    Maybe next season with monk will go better.

    Here are the two dead chars:

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/xrmb-1889/hero/34003703


    - I used the cat mojo (cube) (2nd build)

    - I used life leech dogs and hit way to much life on hit (2nd build)

    - I got one-shot by Perdition (twice :)


    I just don't want to repeat any of the mistakes from these two builds.


    My take away so far:

    - use defensive gems (which makes it harder in higher grifts)

    - "higher" GR are not just about dealing dmg, its also avoiding it


    Still looking for an alternative for "Sacret Harvester" and "Lakumbas"... seems to be the must have for any build.

    posted a message on How to survive as a Witch Doctor?

    My chosen class for the season is Witch Doctor. And oh man, I'm having problems! I played HC since the start of D3, and only lost a lvl 50ish char while leveling. But this season has been "brutal", I just lost my second WD and I'm not even so far in the game.


    Death 1: (Jade Harvester Haunt/Locust)

    ...joined a TX group rift, teleported to a player not in fight... loading screen (damn slow comp)... while loading hear myself die... got TP'd in an act 5 blood puddle, didn't even have enough time to run out of it before falling over permanently.


    Death 2: (Gargs Helltooth Build)

    ...GR 58, facerolled all previous rifts with no problems, barely seeing my health drop. I end up at the RG, a little unexpected, almost out of time for the soul harvest stacks... they run out, RG single shoots me, 2nd life gone with the next attack. In both cases I was far away to have my pets do the work.


    So I know in deaths the problem is the protection from 10x soul harvest (+extra armor rune) and bracers with 60% reduction is great, but when you dont have it you're toast.


    None of the builds I tried would have allowed me to use Unity. In both cases I had 1+ million health, almost everything from PLVL tab 3 maxed out or close to it. I know I wasn't running pimped out gear.


    Finally the question: How can you not die? Is there an alternative to the damage mitigation from soul harvest? I can't imagine better augmented ancient items will make a difference (all that buys you is a few GR's)

    posted a message on Menagerist Goblin? Where...It's a joke.

    I had 3 rainbow ones, and cleared the world in the portal... but nothing special dropped there. What should I be looking for? A monster, boss, chest...?

    posted a message on I got banned for botting when I never botted!!!
    Oh come on. An FTC complaint because this kid cheated and got caught and is now posting HERE of all places for sympathy?
    No, I was suggesting to whine at the FTC page instead of here :) I always tell people, if you have a problem with a company and they wont listen or respond, facebook or the internet won't help you... but there are tools and institutions designed for this.

    Has anyone ever tried a FTC complaint against Blizzard for the banning and not answering why? I did quite a few over the last years, and the companies are required to answer any disputes. So far I always got what I wanted (an answer and solution), also I dont know if it would work here.

    posted a message on How long has it been since you played a public game?

    I use public games to grind rift keys and do bounties... it is slightly faster than solo, although bounties can go bad if someone doesn't know how to collect rewards... I also often start public games, but rarely anyone joins... all that is for HC in US.

    posted a message on The conquests are way to hard!!!

    I agree that some of conquests are too hard... for someone who is only playing HC.But hey, some things need to be there to be extra hard.


    At least I dont care much about them, I only cared about the extra stash space... which again for a casual HC only player is pretty much impossible... so I gave up.

    Ah, that makes me feel better... its more grinding than skills required :) (I can do the grinding)

    posted a message on easiest/best build for season 5 to complete solo GR 60?

    Yeah, you guessed right, I want to get the extra stash tab.


    So far I have a PLVL 400 wizard and I'm currently comfortable in solo GR 35. Slowly I can push higher, I might get to 40 with my current strategy, but not much beyond that.


    Is there a realistic chance for a casual HC player (1-2 hrs a night) to get to solo GR 60? If so, what char/build can you recommend? I tried a few from the page, but most of the time I'm missing some items or have terrible stats on them.


    Any ideas welcome. I also accept a "forget about it".

    posted a message on Banwave for botters incoming ?

    I may have started using TurboHUD recently after playing in groups got so annoying... everyone always knew where the bosses, shrines, exits are, and stupid me found every single dead end. Actually my play time has doubled/tripled since, and now I play solo. There are tons of features in TurboHUD I'd be more than happy to be removed... maphack/monsters on map, but all the extra numbers and overviews make it so useful.
