Shard Of Hate Now In The Game Guide

The end product of the "Design a Legendary" initiative is now in the official game guide. Shard of Hate has a fabulous flavor text as well!


Mithrie Menethil's Cyclone Strike Monk Build

Mithrie Menethil posted a video guide for a Monk Build he finds pretty enjoyable and efficient. It's based on Cyclone Strike and all the information needed is in the video description, so go check it out if the Monk is your class of choice and you haven't found the perfect build yet!


Hot Pepper Gaming: RoS Edition

The fact you like Diablo means you love looking at torture. Even if Diablo 3 is not "dark enough", there is something that's TOO DARK! The RoS Hot Pepper Gaming edition which is basically physical torturing of an innocent self-sacrificial French Blizzard community manager. Enjoy!

    It's been in these a few days. But it is cool looking I hope I can get one to drop but as per my luck all I seem to get are useless legendarys. I think I'm at abluot 1 out of 50 drops are decent and I would actually use them.

    The build is weak in upper difficulties. Its just a spirit spammer and is unbalanced. It would've been relevant if he would've shown how it performs in torment 3 and upwards.

    I've found a more effective monk build that also works in higher difficulties. Check out my D3 profile:

    Gaurdian's Path is worthless in a spirit gen build, when you are dual wielding. Just an FYI.

    That sword only rolls 1901.2 - 2274,3 DPS ... pretty weak compared to the weapons with 3k dps we've seen

    The damage is not the only important thing on a weapon. We have not had a chance to test it's proc, proc chance, whether it can trigger all 3 at once, etc. Because 750% weapon damage procs would make it much much stronger than other 1H weapons.

    You mean from the friends and family beta? Cause those numbers were brought down to the 1.9 - 2.3k range..... They didn't make this sword WORSE than the rest, it's roll is identical to any other 1H weapon.

    I concur, that is worst build ever (not really but it's bad).
  • #13 kenshihh
    muahahaa, worst build i've seen so far
  • #14 elektrar
    Ok nice sword, but where are other items from beta not included in the guide? For instance gloves that give you 10min shrines, Scepter which after killing certain amount of enemies releases a burst of dmg or a ring Royal Grandeur which reduced the number of sets items? Am I missing these items or they have been removed from the game at all?

    Actually not only exploding palm.I've noticed extreme survivability with the evasion matra on & wind through the reeds (optionally any other does it just fine) ! Its sweet as fk ! and the WOHF + FoF = WINNNNN. I was tempted to use the speed rune, but its considerably weaker. Still good though as a monk alternative. And Critical Chance-based builds are no longer viable in my option. Not as far as i tested. Right now I'm roflstomping through T3. Wanna try my current build on T4 where its raining legs.

    I guess fire users are SOL on that weapon.

    This is what I use now:

    Extremely effective, as its a nice balanced build between more self-distructive damage-oriented builds and safe defense-oriented builds. Alternatively you can change Hard Target with Wind Through the Reeds or Backlash, and instead of Blade Storm, use Cyclone, and you got a more spammy build.

    Mephisto never used Fire.

    I honestly don't get how that build was given a spotlight...
