Ah yes, the old "Oh no, my credit card is blacklisted, I can't possibly use another one" strategy. I'm really glad botters were banned, but banning credit cards doesn't do anything. Especially because Blizzard allows payments from other sources.

The ones that are against ONE type of enemy (usually demons) are the ones that are crafted legendaries. The crafted legendaries can't be too powerful, so they have to be kind of generic.

My main non-seasonal is a Barbarian and my main seasonal is a Monk, although I've played all classes, less so on Witch Doctor and Demon Hunter. Nonetheless, I'm going to hit all the legendary items in the game that either don't have something unique about them, or should receive some love to what they have. I'm familiar enough with the classes I don't play to make some borderline suggestions, but forgive me if I miss some aspects ;-)

Mar 3, 2016igniteice posted a message on Is Blizzard working on a new Diablo III character?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
How do botters affect you? How do they impact your gameplay at all? If botters were able to flood the auction house with stuff... oh wait, they can't. If botters were able to play against you... oh wait, they can't. Botting on this game is pointless. It achieves nothing.
I'm having a blast playing D3 right now. IMO opinion this game is in it's prime. They should really be proud of the improvements and push forward to make this game even better. If they don't, then D3 will go on the same downward spiral as D2, where we gradually saw less and less new content added over time.
I cannot do it.
Glad you love the game, glad you can play it, but I cannot. Paragon has destroyed this game. Why should I play when botters and no-lifers are going to be 50-75% better than me anyways? I guess for me it is the fact I have aroud 600 hours into the game already, so been there done that, only thing that would keep me going is something new. But flashy changes to set mechanics to me are not changes worth coming back to. QoL changes and the removal of Paragon would be. Instead, experience beyond lvl 70 should be used to power our skills, or maybe our gear. But there should be a limit. Infinite paragon has played a bad/destructive role to the future of D3, I hope they understand that.

Stats aren't the problem. It's the number of sources of stats that's the problem. They use floating point computation. So calculating 100 and 1000 and 1 million and 1 billion is all the same computational power. But there are so many sources of DoTs and damage and stuff going on that THAT is where it lags.
Sep 7, 2015Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I love Scourge, but Furnace 50% damage to elites is far more powerful, because it affects all of your damage, so while scourge is really great against large groups, furnace saves you immense time against elite packs and guardian, which takes up a lot of time. So I throw Furnace in cube, but I actually wield Corrupted Ashbringer. It is super powerful.
Oct 20, 2014Blizzard doesn't need to change anything. It was a completely fair death on the basis that, at some point in continuing to climb the greater rift ladder, you will encounter mobs that have extremely punishing moves. Would that charge have killed you on GR40? Or 35? Or 30? If Blizzard "fixed" it, what level of GR would you expect to die on from an instant charge?Posted in: Hardcore Discussion
Sep 30, 2014I'm actually doing both Maratini, showing off and asking for advice, sure. There may be something I've overlooked in how to reach my goal of having a really, really high life regen number. I took Shi Mizu because my crit chance is pretty low. In fact, I don't think I need any crit with it. The goal is effectively to drop to sub-25% and then do crit-spam with whirlwind. The Captain Crimson set isn't a must have, but it does give me 10% cooldown reduction, which is pretty good for ignore pain. The resource cost reduction is good for whirlwind/rend spam, but those aren't a problem anyway with Relentless passive. I'm missing sockets on both weapons actually -- I ran out of gifts. With a life bonus of 170%, every point of vitality gives me 216 health (a 136 increase). Inspiring Presence gives me 4.32 health back per second for each point as well, and each point of course gives me 0.5 armor. So the set bonuses that give me 2000 life per second are equivalent to 100k extra health, but that's only 463 vitality.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I'm missing 15% life on my chest piece, and Leoric's Crown could give me another 23% health from double-gem effect, but I would have to give up one of my sets (probably Guardian). I'm also missing 15% life on Rogar's Huge Stone, but the cost right now to roll it is too high. That's 53% life I still can get (plus 2% more from Ring of Royal Grandeur, 1% from Night's Reaping, since I can craft it) -- and I'm not sure if gloves can roll life%, but I'll probably reroll the 9% crit to vitality.
The thing with having HUGE health and low resistance is that you drop in life -really- fast, but Relentless kicks in so much quicker than with a normal health pool. So my 50% damage reduction kicks in once I hit 630k life. That's slightly less health than my regular barb has. All Resistance is only marginally effective then -- it doesn't do a whole lot except slow down how long it takes to drop to 35% range. I think 260% crit damage from sockets on weapons will obviously really help.
Ignore Pain -- yeah, I threw it in at the last moment because I was looking at skills that work with max life. I could do something else with it. My Crusader has a thorns/lightning build, but I wasn't too impressed by it. Granted not every secondary that could be thorns is thorns (there's some stray experience/health globe bonus stuff in there), but things do take a lot of damage (300k+ normal) just from hitting me.
Sep 29, 2014I'll break 2 million health sometime, but I'm running out of gold and materials to craft stuff and min/max enchants. My main is Raekor/Ancients build:Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
But my Life% Barb is http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/igniteice-1237/hero/43200267
My idea for it came from the Rogar's Huge Stone ring. I figure with enough life regen, I could hit 300k life regen per second while at low life.

I love spreadsheets, I really do, they're my job, I make spreadsheets with all kinds of data... but uh, I don't understand the point of this one, sorry. There are things in the game that you can't control, so knowing about them doesn't really change anything. It's like knowing the drop rate of certain legendaries. It doesn't change whether they drop or not, it doesn't change how you get them. Here, I suppose, you have some degree of control, over when you choose to play? I mean, this is basically a way to schedule in advance when you want to do a bonus act... I just don't think it's particularly useful.

"Oh my god! I did nothing but play Diablo 3 for 25 hours a day to get all my legendaries and now everyone can get twice as many legendaries and everything that drops will definitely be set pieces and OP upgrades that they need, they couldn't possibly be just more legendaries to salvage!
May 22, 2014Posted in: News
Really? o.O You're complaining about being able to find more upgrades in a game that is entirely based around finding upgrades? The gear -should- be handed out easily, because it's not about acquiring one piece of gear. It's about finding gear and then finding the next one that's better. That last part takes an amazingly high amount of drops.Quote from muSPKThis just killed the game for me, no real reason for playing this game if the gear is going to be handle out for free with not much efford at all.

Its not OP, before anyone starts to whine. He is a good player because. He got the best items you can get and he experiments with a build, while everyone else copy pastes the WW builds.
There are really not that many variations to play with. There are a lot of abilities and passives, but very few core abilities. Those don't change, only the last few do. He's using Thrive on Chaos and Weapon Throw. These aren't new builds. I was running a life% on hit build with Furious Charge+Dreadnought, Overpower+Revel, and Revenge+Provocation, with Pound of Flesh. It worked really well for quite a while, but to handle the increased damage of higher MPs, I had to switch to something else, so I invested in more life% on gear, got myself to 100k hitpoints, and switched to Whirlwind+Blood Funnel and Inspiring Presence. I still use Furious Charge+Dreadnought for the movability, but changed Revel to Killing Spree to support my life gain. Now are you going to call that a classic Whirlwind build? Because when everyone else was doing Whirlwind+Sprint, I was doing the first build I listed, because that's what I enjoyed, and this new whirlwind build for me is what I enjoy now -- it's what works for me.
People aren't "copying" as much as you think. They are choosing what they like, just like Dex is doing -- that 100th spear weapon dropped so he decided to try a weapon throw build. It's called adapting to the situations around you ;-)

hahaha so funny how ppl get angry when someone simply pwns them ...
It's single player/co-op content. There is no "pwning." You either have the gear to do this or you don't. Only so many people can have the gear simply because of how item affixes roll. His gear literally has some of the best affix rolls possible, and there aren't going to be many of them out there in this great of combination. If he sold his set to someone else, they could literally do the exact same thing he is doing. Sure it's cool to watch, but it's not a measure of skill. He isn't going to die due to life leech with the damage output, and he doesn't need to move, he just needs to stand in one place and click. There's no dodging, no planning, nothing outside of spamming a huge damage move with the gear.
What you see as anger is really people saying, "meh."
