Jun 7, 2015ffilps posted a message on What are mods going to do about constant bot spam?Posted in: Site Suggestions and Questions
Myself and pretty much all other mods occasionally fight half an hour+ battles against those spammers who create new accounts as fast as we can ban them. [...] Trust me, we're probably more pissed off by the situation than any of you are, but we're already doing all that we can.
judging from what you wrote, you're certainly not doing all you can. trying to manually ban automated account creations and automatic spam is kind of futile. you have to restrict what new accounts are allowed to do, or you will never win the upper hand against these spam-waves.
but i guess you know that already.

kilee you are right, I totally forgot Triumvirate and Nilfur's boot.
Tal Rasha is being so much powerful mostly because of Nifur's boot, gives us 3 times damage output. so it all comes down to Tal vs Delsere.
and than if Delsere 6 pcs bonus is additive, then Tal Rasha is a clear winner.
no, tal'rasha is so powerful because it buffs ALL of our spells by 600%. hydras just wreck stuff with it, as do meteors. nilfur's contribute to that, too, but the main buff is the set itself. delsere only buffs 4 skills, 3 of which are utter crap, and arcane orb only becomes good because of the triumvirate. you can mix delsere with tal'rasha, but you'd always want to wear 6 pieces of tal'rasha.
firebird is dead.

a lot of people in here (like you!) obviously don't understand that you're not forced to do anything. it's a game. if you want to be on that leaderboard so bad that you sacrifice all the fun you could have with the game, guess what: it's your own fault. just play the fucking game and have fun. all you greedy kids who want nothing else but "pwn dem leaderboards"? go cry me a river.

i always wonder why you guys feel so compelled to answer questions in public to which you don't have the answer. you're just guessing. and you're wrong. why even respond? +1?
Feb 19, 2015Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
haha, i love flawed logic. look:
[------------][------------][------------] 3x Rift, closed after RG
[-----------------------------------] 1x Rift, completed
which one has a greater chance on legendaries? hint: it's roughly the same playlength, one gives you 100 BS, the other gives you 300 BS (and still the same chance on legendaries!)

i can verify that same runes do NOT overwrite each other. we tested it.
Jan 29, 2015i hope blizzard will nurf the hell out of all "tank" builds. they themselves said they don't want "100%" stuff in their game. they nurfed things like the CM wizard in the past, who was able to perma-freeze all enemies around him, and now we have the exact same thing happening with tiki-docs. even worse, now the legacy-gear problem arose, and people are abusing the shit out of the system.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
it's boring. it's lame. it's against blizzard's own rules, but sadly i think they are too afraid to take away the only possibilty to reach grifts higher than 50 in group play.

you ALWAYS gain an advantage through cheating; it's the whole purpose of cheating. that's like saying "if aimbots are agains the TOS, it's stupid, because that way the player has to decide if he risks his account or plays with a disadvantage". great "logic" you have there, cheater...Quote from FsmorkI find it fascinating that everyone ignored Turbofish's excellent post. He summed up the main issues with greater rift rankings and how it relates to TurboHUD's use very well. Maybe it made too much sense?
Throwing my 2c on this (and I'm on the top 100 wizard leaderboard and I've never used TurboHUD) the controversy is ridiculous, and the program looks great. If you're playing for a spot in the leaderboards and there is a program like this available, then it should not be against the TOS to use it. Then if you choose not to use it you are choosing to play at a disadvantage against those who do use it - and that's fine, because the choice was made by the player. Having a program like this be available with widespread use and be technically against the TOS is idiotic because it forces players to choose between risking their account and gaining an advantage.
More information (allowing for better decision making) makes the game far more fun to me. A little bit of randomness keeps it interesting, but why a lot of people seem to glorify the restriction of information to the player is beyond me.
Oct 5, 2014Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
i can't even tell you how great it is to hear that all you cheaters might leave the game now. today is a good day!Quote from SpeakerPlot twist - Some people play the game for their own entertainment, not to compete with the masses. Turbo hud made the game more enjoyable for people such as I, and now that it is gone it is time to move away from this game until things are made more enjoyable again. Hopefully blizzard will finally realize that players like options, such as ingame stats, and HUD's, instead of giving players absolutely no choice in the customization of the UI and what information is displayed.

This is a collection of all changes to legendary items upcoming in 2.1 - documented in the patch notes and undocumented but as observed on the PTR. I've searched for this, but did not find a concise, complete, up-to-date collection. This is mainly such that I can update my wizard guide as soon as 2.1 hits - and of course to plan ahead which builds might be cool in 2.1. Please shout if you spot a mistake or a missing item! If available, provide a screenshot (link to imgur.com). Note that I'm particularly interested in changes that seem to go unnoticed such as crappy default rolls on items being removed. Some of those might be really interesting, especially since some cooldown reduction or resource cost reduction rolls on exclusive items were removed.
- General Changes
- One-handed Weapon
- Two-handed Weapon
- Season-only Legendaries
- Legendary Gems
- Weapon Procs
Note that life on hit and life regeneration will be buffed and re-rolled on all your existing items - for example, a Royal Ring of Grandeur can roll up to roughly 7500 life on hit in 2.1, so don't be to quick to roll LoH off some items! Existing rolls will be more than tripled when 2.1 hits. Life regeneration will see a similar buff.
A special treat for barbarians: shoulders, chest armor, and two-handed mighty weapons can now roll Furious Charge as well as Call of the Ancients damage.
One of the most important changes is the addition of Ramaladni's Gift, which adds a socket to a (non-socketed) weapon. This is what it looks like. It's tradeable just like an item (for 2 hours within party). It means that you should not re-roll a stat on a weapon right now that has a socket (because you will want to remove that socket come 2.1) and you should not re-roll any stat on a weapon that has a low damage roll (because instead of desperately rolling some other stat to a socket, you might want to add the socket with Ramaladni's Gift and re-roll the damage).

Also check out Jaetch's thread on the official forums! He actually started it before I did, but I guess we somehow both started after we talked about upcoming item changes. It's only that due to timezone differences he had a headstart while I was in bed

I'm not sure what you're saying here. Players in Diablo 3 are gaining an insane amount of power over time. Look at that guy who's paragon 1000 and who has now 1250 more main stat than the average paragon 600 player; that's 2.5 primary affixes more. Look at people who went to min/max their gear, such as those on top of the Diabloprogress rankings - they easily deal twice as much damage as someone who has all the endgame gear, but sub-optimal rolls or a "wrong" primary affix here and there. People gain power over time, of course. So actually I have no clue what you're saying. It just becomes more and more difficult to upgrade the closer you get to "perfection" in terms of your character. And why is that? Because if this wasn't the case, you would break the game. Think about the legendary Smite gem; if it's possible to upgrade it to rank 1000, players will do it. And a rank 1000 Smite gem will trivialize the game, players will kill everything literally "on sight". That's why Blizzard (and any other game developer who's not completely unaware of those dangers) needs to make sure that there's a "power cap", and also a reasonable limit to the difference between casual players and high-end players.Quote from shaggy
Why Blizzard is so reluctant to give the players power is beyond me. Josh must have a severe case of schadenfreude or something. I can't really explain it otherwise. What is so revolting about players gaining power over time? Isn't that the core of an ARPG?

You seem very determined which I respect but I still think you'd be better off channeling your time into something better ( school work ) or if you are an adult, work or day trading or sports ? or just take the game for what it is ?.Quote from MeatHeadMikhailJunger Theory Bounty Farming Part 2/3 - 25x A1 T4 Caches
Today I continue the mini-series by opening 25x A1 T4 caches, all solo farmed. I talk about the 'unavoidable' legendaries I found along the way, get 4 legendaries from bags (no rings), and discuss more tinfoil shenanigans. My goal is not to prove this method one way or another - I simply don't (and won't) have a large enough sample size - but rather to see if it has any merit. Enjoy!
All the threads about RORG highlight some possible issues around the design and implementation of RNG. Regardless, it will be impossible to determine how Blizzard have implemented the caches / drops / RNG unless you have a massive sample size.
If however, you do try to do this, I would seriously urge you put your energy into something more worthwhile.
Remember, this is only a game so unravelling how it works is pointless especially given there is a patch looming on the horizon.
Please do not let this consume you.
Jul 20, 2014depends on how the seasons workPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
the game scales monsters and xp to your level so what will count is if you need to kill maltheal before you can access adventure mode which will be fastest doing split bounties
really best thing is just to get the best knowledge of what skills and runes and builds work during level up, remember that seasons wont let you twink with gems and xp boosting gear or power leveling, no doubt that some people will figure out an xp exploit and keep it quiet
otherwise its probably best to keep to a low difficulty you can never be under leveled with scaling and you wont be over geared to one shot torment, leveling is going to be quite slow and i can't see anyone getting to 70 in 1/4 of the average time unless a huge exploit exists because even crafted gear wont be available, no plans, low level artisans, no materials.
HC players will be hitting 70 faster than SC
another important area is learn at roughly every 20 levels what sort of stats you can have, low level gear isn't that set up around CC/CD but main stat and average damage on jewelry are good to look out for, everyone is going to have to grab and run the gear that drops for them, you don't want to be evaluating gear builds mid game, you wont have a lot of gold so look at vendors for weapons if that ever falls behind, and new boots because with zero paragon points movement speed boots will be critical but you don't want to wear ilvl 19 boots at level 57
all resist from memory doesn't really appear until after lvl 30 gear so watch out for when it does because it goes from unimportant to significant in a fairly small time frame
really its all about detailed item and class knowledge to be as efficient as possible
Jul 11, 2014Totaly disagree with the OP.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
The fact that the set doesn't syngergize with any one particular skill gives a lot of flexibility - it can be used by any spec that deals fire damage.
Having that synergy would severly limit the usefulness of the set.

Just because no one else did it, I want to add the following two cents to the discussion (not directed at either of you in particular, but just a general observation after reading many comments in recent days):
1) MM Conflag and WoW+EB are completely different playstyles (stationary, long-range damage spell that gets better over time and when mobs don't drop dead in an instant versus mobile, melee spell that works best if you kill everything really quick)
2) Whenever you make any claims about 2.1 please please please stop speaking in absolutes such as "this is how it's gonna be in 2.1". We are still miles away from seeing the final class balancing, GR difficulty balancing, we haven't even seen the new Firebird's set bonus yet (the current change on PTR is a joke and will not be the final one). What if they make the dot from Conflag non-stackable and add a Hexing Pants-like affix to the 6 piece Firebird's set? OH; all of the sudden WoW >>> MM. So pleeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaase phrase your "predictions" about 2.1 as such and don't talk in absolutes that might lead other players to throw away certain items just because they think "oh it might as well be rubbish in 2.1".
Not everything is simply "black and white" as it seems, and if anything ever is going to be black and white Blizzard will make it colorful. That's why it's on PTR, and that's why I said multiple times the PTR will be around for a bit longer than usual. We're talking about a current snapshot here, but we have no idea yet what the final build will look like.
Apr 22, 2014I think they should ban everyone exploiting or cheating. And then leave the game as it is, instead of destroying parts of it just becouse some idiots wants to farm chests for 24 hours a day etc. Like the cursed chests for example, they suck donkeyballs atm. Or like the resplendent chests, they dont drop nearly as much loot as they did before people started "abusing" them. If they banned everyone that are so hellbent on cheating and then leaving the game as is to us that likes to play it in its entirety the game would still be great and there would be one less idiot streaming chestfarming 24/7.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
