    Oh, thanks for spotting that mistake. It's belt+neck (we know that from season 7).

    posted a message on Plz, need help with the basics of the game

    The materials for Kanai's cube you mention you'll get from doing bounties (complete all 5 bounties in an act to get a cache; you'll need a full run with caches from every act for the important recipes). Gear is usually acquired from drops, Kadala, and upgrading stuff in the cube, but it's all completely random.


    That being said, the people in your group who have 20k weapons use cheated gear. GR150 is impossible to play "legit"; those guys hacked the game to have super overpowered gear. They will never find an upgrade ever (as their gear is 10 times better than the best non-cheated gear) and if you have received gear from them it's most likely cheated as well.


    It sucks, but that's what console looks like - full of cheaters. Sorry for that. Before you ask: you can not lose your paragon anymore, it will stay with you forever. Those guys robbed you of the "gearing up experience".

    posted a message on What do you think about the new Challenge Rifts mode?
    Quote from reeeechgo-next

    CR 4 seems a bit better. At least it had a complete 6 piece set this time and it had at least 4 different elements to take use of the 6 piece set.

    Are you talking about EU or NA? NA is okay. EU is horrible this week. It's the MH build but with no MH (and no Fazula, no Swami). Also no Obsidian. Outside of Archon you can only build up 3 stacks and only damage with Arcane Torrent - but only for a few seconds because you have no APoC and no way to generate AP. It's just an absolutely unfinished MH build. I just want to throw out a spell for a generator with a fourth element. Or throw in an Obsidian. Or throw everything away. Terrible build.

    By the way, folks: DON'T complete the Challenge Rift before Thursday! Otherwise you won't be able to claim the reward in the season.

    Sure, sounds like a good plan.

    Completely random. Especially rifts it comes down to: RNG, what kind of rifts you get, what items you find, how well you know the low-level abilities of your classes, how well you play your classes, how much time it takes you in between, and in general just speed and picking the right difficulty (basically always stay on hard, many people make the mistake of going too high).


    3-4 hours maybe? The fastest rifting 4 player group I know did it in a bit more than 2 hours but those were like absolute top players that practiced a lot. So aiming for 3-4 hours is a good time for a 2 player group with some basic planning. Depends on the classes as well of course.

    No new way to level to my knowledge. Therefore, leveling is the same as in previous seasons. As for builds... the only that matters is GR20 builds, and fst_d3 recently added all those for season 11 on his website:

    month/day/hour? Oo I guess that would be 07/20/17. Interestingly 17 is also true for year :P


    Next Thursday, 5pm of your server's timezone. I made a countdown here:

    posted a message on "MY BUILD DISAPPEARED" - report in here please!

    @Angry fixed. Just a heads up, all those links in the build descriptions (and more links than text) are pretty much likely to trigger the spam system. At least that's my guess. Wait ~15 minutes for any other edit so the system can settle in, otherwise it might mark it as spam again.


    @n00berlin: The build shows up in search. But you probably haven't changed the default search option "Top - Week" to "Top - All time". But here's some other, easier options:


    * You can tell them your DFans username and then your build can be found under "Builds" in your profile.

    * You can give them the build number (92179) which translates into a pretty simple URL: diablofans.com/builds/92179

    * Let them search for your name in the search tool (and again, make them aware of the default restriction which only searches for past week).

    Hm, then that's a bug with the search future. The build is not marked as spam tho :)

    posted a message on Double EXP Weekend Maximization Build??

    You gain max XP by running the highest GR you can run considerably fast and consistently (3-5 minute clears). Bonus XP gear has been nerfed to death and is mostly useless, with some exceptions but those don't apply here. Just gear for max DPS (or max survivability and buffs, if you're the support character in a group, which is what your Cain's character and the guide you linked is about).


    And a general note: Quin has sadly left Diablo 3 and is just playing WoW these days, his guides are outdated for the most part as he hasn't touched the game nor his guides in about a year, and some stuff has changed since then. So look for other builds in the build tool and always make sure they're from this current patch.

    In Vitality to Life % calc, there's a small typo. I'm sure you can figure it out :p

    I think I did. At least I found one. Thanks ;)

    posted a message on Meta season 11

    Inspired by this thread, I added something to a new overview I just recently created: a comparison of the meta as we knew it before the season and the final meta by the end of the season:


    http://d3resource.com/seasons/


    You will notice that not a single time the meta prediction was 100% accurate. Sometimes only apparently "minor" things changed, but keep in mind that switching an entire class set is not far away from switching to an entirely different class+build as it means the gear you collected, the rolls you were looking for, and the pieces you augmented were *wrong*.


    And oftentimes the meta changed absolutely entirely and had barely any resemblance to what it looked like before the season.

    Updated for Season 11! Now even with countdown timer.


    Also, I made a thing:

    Shows a comparison of previous seasons.

    Oh thanks Nachten, that's a good point. Necro as RG killer is probably only worth it for fishing and gambling on good RNG, but for more consistent clears and sub-GR120 the wizard or DH are probably better. But then, the community *wants* the necro to be part of the meta, so I'm sure they'll find a way. Maybe as support (but even here his heal is not consistent enough atm to replace the monk, and it doesn't have long-range pulling like the barb).

    posted a message on Meta season 11

    I'm sure there will be a patch, because they need to deploy a patch (next week) in order to fix the Rathma tooltip. So some minor changes might be coming. If they will nerf/fix anything - I wouldn't count on it. The necro right now is quite strong, but if I'd hazard a guess Blizzard is probably fine with it since it's the new class and they want everyone to feel powerful. You can't really count on that anyways for your decision.


    Keep in mind that there's literally been no testing for the necro. The "beta" or "PTR" was just a marketing gag; 90% of invited people were just promoters (streamers and mostly from NA), but most of the builds come from theorycrafters, oftentimes from Asia and EU, and almost none of them were invited to the beta. And since the necro went live, most of those guys were too busy exploiting. So basically the real testing will begin 3-4 weeks into the season when the first farming is over and they'll be looking for the push build. Then new builds will emerge.


    Currently the necro is quite strong, but also very squishy - in Torment rifts I always play with Goldwrap+Boon of the Hoarder, but in GRs that obviously doesn't work. It's a matter of preference I guess: I personally just don't like the necro in its current state. It feels a bit clunky for speed farming. And speed farming is what you do at the beginning of the season - run a ton of rifts to get gear, paragon, gem levels, and more gem levels for augments. For that just pick whichever class you enjoy the most. Once you have all that stuff you can still switch to the class you want to push with, farm the gear (if you don't have it yet), put on augments, and get a rank. Pick 2 classes for the season start you enjoy, period. Especially in 2p the meta is really of very little relevance, and a heal monk is geared up in a day if necessary.
