Yes, sure, people will spend some small abounts of money, to get crafting materials and the items you talk of but there are allot of people that have invested hundreds of $ and I bet they are regretting doing that now.
Good point though, Blizzard seems to be lining things up for a rest to all gear, any level 63 gear will be useless at 70, Just for fun using D3UP Calculator, i had a 400k wiz and i changed the 1209 dps conquest sword i had to the same stats as the gear posted in one of the Diablo Fans screen shots of a level 70 weapon. Turned the 400k into just over 800k dps and that is just changing one item. So what is it going to be like when you have all level 70 Gear. So yes Twoflower you are right, all level 63 gear is useless even if you re-roll a main stat with enchanting, they will still suck compared to level 70 Gear.

I have played Diablo 3 since the start, 1300hrs later. I have used the real money auction house as that is how Diablo was designed around an auction house both gold and real money. Both to profit blizzard and to reduce the people using third party sites for getting gear and gold. So how do people feel about spending real money and now having the auction house removed.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I know my self I feel sour, as now there is no opportunity to get something back over the next few years, it is now gone!!!!. I know some people would have spent thousands on this game and they must be really annoyed. Would any one have spent there real money if they knew they would close the real money auction house. NO you would not!!! You may buy some gold to purchase materials for crafting. So blizzard, makes the money, and the people that have spent the money, well there is no compensation, you just have to grin and bare it.
I think that the auction houses can exits in Diablo, for the people that want to use it.
Like make it only available after reaching one character to paragon 100. That way everyone starts self found for a very long time. And give self found bonuses to people, like extra magic find and movement speed, a permanent puzzle ring affect or even some cool looking wings or something to give people the incentive to stay self found. But be able to sell any unwanted gear for a real money profit or for gold to gear an auction house character.
Once you have top end gear is there really a point to having it? There is only so much farming you can do until you get tired of that, and when you do pick up another good item like one you already have, your just going to brimstone it, instead of sell it on the auction house.
I welcome the changes to the game and it will be sooooo much better to play from a self found point of view, like it should have been in the first place. And it takes balls to take the auction house out but at the same time it really burns the people that have put allot of time, effort and now money into a game.
I do hope there can be a solution and people can come up with some good ideas, there is allot of talent at blizzard and i hope they can come up with something creative.

No one know how they are going to nerf Wotb, yet, but cc is the main benefit of Wotb, Toc. if your build uses it to stop cc and you have a period of time with no cc reduction, like 40s or more as an example, your not going to use it unless you can kill a pack in the given time you have it on for. That depend on your gear, and dictates what mp level you run. I do not see the point of running two skills with cc reduction, like using Wotb and leap.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Just an idea but what about if Wotb was on a timer of say one minute as an example, and if you turned it off during the one minutes the timer would cool down, that way if forces you to turn it off and kill white trash with out it and not have it on all the time. And only engage it once there is a pack to kill, or to get out of CC. You could also have it so if you hit the one minute max you would get punished and have a 20 second period where you would not use it. It would become available at 40 second on the cool down. That way you could use all of the runes of Wotb and not just Toc..

Yes sure you can use different abilities, like furious charge and leap, that is obvious, but use another rune on WotB and see how you go on higher MP levels. Your missing the point i am making, if you use WW with HOTA, or Seismic slam, you will be forced to drop Wotb for F-charge or leap. Wotb will become an ability that no one will use, if you are left with a 105s cool down.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep

Wotb:toc is needed above Mp7-8 for most barbs doing 200k unbuffed dps. so blizzard has a choice, either nerf it and have allot of pissed off people using barbs and loose more people playing diablo, because that is what is going to happen like it or not. Because no one wants to sell most of there gear to rebuild a character again and loose money on doing that. My example is this, try using a build with any of the other runes of Wotb, and see how you go in mp8 and above. You will die very very quickly once you can not get out of jailer, frozen, or fear, especially when there is a ranged pack. You need to survive for 105 seconds, if you use another rune, lets see how long you last in mp8 with no wrath, you wont, so if blizzard nerfs Wotb:Toc you may as well take it completely out of the game as far as top end barbs go, year sure you can survive on lower levels where you can take being jailed and take some damage and keep going. How would you deal with two or three packs together on mp 7? There would be no point to using it. I know you will all go use something else like furious charge, No don't want to, i have a build that not may people use, a traditional WW but i use seismic slam and only use WW to get out of being surrounded. This build will not work at all if there is no WotbToc. I have tired, i would like to use insanity, or slaugher, but like i said, once it wares off you die. 95% people can not kill an mp 10 pack in 15 second, so once it wares of you get jailed instantly and die, and then your left hiding in a corner crying for 105 seconds, until you get Wotb back.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
I have an answer which is much more appealing and still allows barbs to use the rune. Either reduce the cool down allot like to 40 seconds or Half the effectiveness of it or more. So you only get 5% crit 10% dodge, attackspeed and movement, or have allot of people selling all there gear and uninstalling the game!! and that is not what diablo need right now, but it is what will happen.

Yes, sorry about the font, not sure what happened there.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
So he had an inventory full of items. He had checked them all out to be no good, but had accidentally swapped the sacred shield over with one in the inventory just before salvaging. Because the graphic was the same he did not notice the swap and when the current safe guard comes up, which is just two pics showing the one one you have equipped and the one you are about to salvage. The (equipped) is the only thing showing you the difference between the two items, Accidents happen, as stupid as it may be band believe me we have make the point to him on many occasions, every 5 minutes or when a set itme dropes we go hey might salvage that, who needs the auction house, we will get out mileage out of this one.
But at the end of the day if you had an item woth 400+mill and you had the option to lock it form being salvaged or vendored. I think 99% of people would use that option if it was available, no matter how confident you were at salvaging or vendoring the right itmes.

So I have mate, I let him borrow a shield.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Stats are as followed.
All Resist 76%
Damage reduction from melee Attacks, 6%
and a good amount of Dex
Purchased it for about 60mill about a month ago, the key element for me was the Physical + All Resist + 10% cirt + Vit + DRFMA 6%. It rolls one shield every now and then, but virtually never with 24% block chance.
Any how that mate has got it mixed up with some trash and salvaged it, OH CRAP!!!!!!!!!. HAH AHAHA I know very funny, did not every get a brimstone, LOL. Any how I just wanted to ask blizzard to implement a way to temporary lock and item so this could not happen again as I know it would have to other people. If you could lock an item by shift right click and stop it from being salvaged or sold that would be great thanks Bliz.
