    I have some Ancient Items already, not from ptr, but from normal game


    If you think ancient items will not be so ancient then that's your opinion man, but a one-handed weapon with a damage roll of up to 1940 is going to be quite awesome if your current max roll is 1490 - think about it. Just because no one has posted a picture with a Ruby in socket doesn't mean your items are better - because no one in their right mind sockets a weapon with a Ruby.

    Those are not Ancient Items, those are simple well-rolled weapons with a Ruby in socket to make the DPS look "ancient" (but the actual DPS range is totally non-ancient).

    We don't need trolls here on Diablofans, so please be careful with those kind of dumb posts. Thanks.

    The issue is caused by an external module embedded into the forum software and not the forum software itself. They're working on fixing it, but it's not entirely in Curse's software engineers hands, form what I've been told.

  • posted a message on WTB Blizz game that looks like this...
    Blizz pleeeease give us graphics like this!

    1) Blizzard *never* created a game with top-notch graphics, due to two reasons: first, they want to ensure that many people can play a game, and sometimes FPS shooters with crazy new graphics engines require you to buy a $400 graphics card; second, there are more important things than graphics.

    2) Almost all Blizzard games in the past had competitors that were released at the same time and had better graphics, but the Blizzard games succeeded in the long-term and were the ones that not only "won" the competition but oftentimes went on to re-define the genre. You know why this is? Good graphics keep you engaged for a week, or maybe a months. Good gameplay keeps you engaged for years.

    3) After over 20 years of playing computer games I've noticed (well, not just recently but a long time ago) that my favorite games were never the ones with superior graphics, but those that kept me engaged in terms of mechanics, depth, story, atmosphere, gameplay. For example, Fallout (1+2) is probably my all-time favorite game - although it looked like "shit" from day 1 and got bad ratings because its graphics were not superior. For me, the atmosphere of this game is unmatched. Same applies to D2 that some people still play today. If graphics are your only "selling point", your game is obsolete and forgotten in one year due to the rapid technological development.


    As ruksak said, I'm very disappointed to see this coming from you, and I strongly disagree with your thread title - if Blizzard would design a game like this, they could not invest the time and resources into the departments that really matter to make games as successful and awesome as Blizzard games to date have been. I've watched the trailers and was like "yeah, graphics looks awesome, but that gameplay looks like crap and the constant screen shaking, effect overload, and slow fight mechanics would let me uninstall after one hour".

    TL;DR: No, thanks.

    Quote from Albatare»
    oh sweeeet ! more conduit pylon abuse videos, like there isn't enough of these threads already ..

    I wish we could stop with the "Conduit Pylon abuse" or similar notions. This is not an abuse or exploit, but what Blizzard wants.

    For everyone who still hasn't noticed: in 2.1.2, you'll get about 2-4 pylons per rift, and therefore about one Conduit Pylon in every other rift.

    For the hundredth time - this is not the player's fault, but Blizzard doesn't see this as a problem but actually wants to encourage this playstyle. If GRs in their current state go live (and there's a not unreasonable chance that's the case) you just always want one "scouting character", preferably barb, to look for a Conduit in a rift and use it to kill the RG (which saves you ~5 minutes since everyone can go full AoE).

    So many people always flamed the barbarians who used Conduits to kill the rift guardian and got high rankings - even calling it exploit - while it seems to be exactly what Blizzard wants. If you don't want this (I certainly don't!) stop flaming the messenger - address the issue upfront and use your voice to bring to Blizzard's attention that this situation is not "fun".

  • posted a message on PTR Trial XP+Gold Bug
    What is up with the titles today?

    Toned it down a bit... don't go all caps lock please.

    It's a known bug:

    "Higher level Greater Rifts (26+) and Greater Rift Trials are awarding too much Experience and Gold"

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/13242714346

    There's tons of people reporting that on Reddit; it caps out at the integer cap (2^31-1) which means if you're going for high-level keys you get over 2b XP and gold per trial.

    It's PTR. Yes there are lots of bugs. No need to go crazy, all progress will be wiped anyways :-)

    I've thought about the Spines quiver as well, problem is that with the new mechanic of sentries it's even better to have more charges/sentries which makes Bombardier so absolutely insanely overpowered and a must-have... hard to see any other quiver coming close to that. Unless a new Meticulous Bolts shows up ;-) It needs to be something that buffs damage by ~30% or so, which I have a hard time seeing any quiver achieve by now. But would be glad to be proven wrong :P

    No, just the traditional Raekor build. As on live. Only difference is that there are Conduits everywhere. But anyways... this is a DH thread, let's keep it at DH talk ;-)

    I wonder what "new" variations, besides the build changes, will come up for the DH. Besides the obvious Kridershot choice, maybe there are other weapons or other items that allow for new interesting synergies? Since you don't need Taskers anymore, I also wonder which other item could be used to combine with M6... or maybe even go full M6 and Restraint+Focus set?

    Moved to DH forums.

    @Heledar: DH was overpowered as hell from day 1 on last PTR. In the weeks of testing to follow, Blizzard went on to "fix" DH and increased the gap, and we all know it went live. I can see this going live... Blizzard seems to have given up on releasing a patch in total balance, but want players to find out other ways to restore balance (the barb just came up very late in this patch). Maybe there's something to be found in other classes as well - we'll see as soon as people on PTR have found the new sets and familiarized with the new playstyles. Of course, everyone has perfect DH gear after a season of "play DH or forfeit" which is why on day 1 of this PTR everyone is checking out the DH changes first. (Not true for everyone though - for example, Buleh already cleared GR60 on his barb.)
