Gratz on getting the new page online!
I was always using the "View New Content" feature of the old site to get an overview of all unread posts. The 4 (used to be 5) "recent posts" on the front page just won't do it for me, especially when you get up in the morning. It seems like the new version of this "New Content" view does only support a feature to show threads since last visit, last day, and so on - any chance of getting an "unread threads" list anywhere?

What the hell are you talking about?
I think your first sentence is two sentences with the end of one and the beginning of another cut off...
Care to take a breath and try re-typing that in the English language? Preferably the American dialect, as opposed to the British dialect. Though, either would be better then what you wrote here...
Edit: Where is Elfen when you need him...
Well... typical case of "bazinga" ;-) It was sarcasm.

Not everything is BoA. "Just" legendaries/sets and crafting materials. The latter you would be able to dupe like hell (as on the console version), along with gold, and craft a million items. And who knows, maybe there would even be a hack to make BoA legendaries tradable. For example, by going offline and changing timestamp of drop/list of eligible people to trade the item with.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Your other argument is that the game is essentially a single player game; which is not true. Yes, it is a huge drawback if we can't freely trade legendaries with our friends. But to go so far to say that that renders multiplayer useless is plain ignorant and you shouldn't be surprised by some of the reactions.
The only valid argument for removing the always online requirement is that people in remote regions can't play HC. It's a serious one, and the one that I can understand, as well as I understand the anger of people who would like to play HC but can't because of this. But to use the economy as a reason is just a joke and dismisses the fact that despite the BoA restriction there are some new incentives for group play in RoS (skills revamp etc).

What does ICP stand for? Got 156 meanings but none of them makes sense.

Nope, you are right. Everyone is just guessing. March seems unlikely though for two reasons:
1) On March 18 the auction house will go offline. A pre-expansion patch will (as the name says) go online before the expansion, but probably after the AH goes down. Therefore, there's a 99% probability that RoS will not come out before April.
2) Usually, expansion PTRs are up for about half a year, so I wouldn't expect RoS before May. Probably even later, because with paragon 2.0 and loot 2.0 they did not just simply add some new stuff but completely overhaul the entire game, and it requires a lot of balancing.
So yeah, it's 2014, and not March, but more likely Q3 (Q2 [May/June] only if we're lucky, Q4 if the PTR highlights many problems that need further work).
Not right after the start, but somewhere in between level 61 to 70, depending on what items you have now. If you have pretty low gear in D3 now (less than 100k or even 50k DPS) you will probably replace it very very early on, after a few hours of play. Some streamers that have perfectly rolled items were able to enchant one stat and even use them for quite some time on level 70, but not for a long time; eventually you will definitely replace all your 60 gear.
But note that you want to keep at least some gear, the RoS monsters are not gonna give you their loot if you approach them naked
Speculation. Leveling curve isn't balanced yet and might be simplified such that beta testers reach higher levels a bit quicker. Also note that many people who got a beta key are 24/7 players who play insanely efficient. For example, some of them are able to reach paragon 100 on live in 30 hours. Not sure if you can do that as well - I certainly can't ;-)
It's safe to say that gaining paragon right now is definitely the one thing that won't be "in vain" once RoS comes. Gear will be reset, and we don't know how much of an advantage you have with a billion of gold. A recent bluepost said that stockpiling crafting materials won't help you either. But paragon will not be reset, so if you feel like playing right now and don't know what to focus on, the answer is: paragon.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from makaBy the way, I created a thread in bnet outlining this problem.
Not expecting an answer, and not expecting a stash increase. But maybe if enough people ask for it......who knows.
Of course, I fully expect the usual bnet trolls to bring great insights like "lol who needs more stash space? you guys are hoarders". Which, really, would just reinforce the notion that it's a good idea to mostly stay out of that place.
Thanks. Logged in and upvoted your thread. Let's hope we see some action.

Okay, can we stop assuming that everyone has billions after a couple of days in RoS? The numbers just don't work out.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Yes, all the famous streamers get a few dozen million gold per hour. But that's just because they are playing 24/7, brought in 500k+ DPS gear and billions of gold, enchanted their gear to have a crazy head start on high Torment levels, then grabbed jaw-dropping new legendaries and are roflstomping through Torment 6 now with insane speed. After three days of beta these guys have gear that many people won't have even months into RoS, they are using broken skills that won't make it to live.
Did anyone watch the Diablofans stream? I can relate much more to that. They're playing on lower Torment level (2 or 3 IIRC), they're playing like a normal human and not like a robot, and their money/hour is much lower (I remember seeing some 300k for a bounty or so).
Yes, you can get to paragon 100 in 30 hours, you can find 6 legendaries/hour, you can kill MP10 ubers in under a minute. But most players haven't even reached paragon 100 after a year, some players play a day without seeing one legendary, and some players have never killed MP10 ubers.
If Blizzard were to balance the game around your famous idols from Twitch, we'd be screwed. It's like watching Michael Jordan and deciding that your own Basketball basket needs to be 5 meters high up and super tiny because otherwise it's "too easy".

Reaper of Souls Expansion Highlights: Adventure Mode, Bounties, Nephalem Rifts, Blood Shards and Gambling, Blue Postsposted a message onPosted in: News & AnnouncementsQuote from csenseyou know what made diablo 2 fun? Adventure Mode, Bounties, Nephalem Rifts were the same mode and you could decide in a game anytime what you want to do next and it worked because max player limit was 8 and it was fun because skills slots vere not limited to 6..
Your avatar is the perfect fit to your post.
In all seriousness, you must have played a different D2 then. I respect your opinion, but this is just wrong on so many levels. Adventure mode? Yes. Bounties? Rifts? More than 6 skills? Hell no.

Thanks Jaetch! I'm happy about every tiny piece of wizard information we get. Unable to watch the video as I'm at work now, but take a +1 cookie in the meantime... can't wait to have a look at it once I'm home.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from huertgenwaldHas any1 seen a hint, why enchanting rings and amulets is so much more expensive ?
This has nothing to do with the first post. If you want to talk about that, create a new thread. If we'd discuss the matter here, it would just get lost because it's filed under an unsuitable title.
I think this thread should be closed as it's just a duplicate of the other one.
