    posted a message on Diablo not dead

    Diablo is not dead yet. The reason we do not get enough information about exspansion / Diablo 4 is normal. They usually come with statement when they know and are sure of what will come.

    Diablo franchise still has a large sales potential and fans. But the Brand still suffer huge image/brand problems due to all the problems since release.

    The developers are at a crossroads.

    1. Increased competition from similar upcoming games Lost Ark etc. Making Blizzard withhold information for their upcoming contents and features. But maybe we get some surprise news at BlizzCon.

    2. Diablo 3 is a Conflicting product with too much different views philosophy. The biggest mistake seen with hindsight is that Consol should not have been implimentet. Because the sales was decent, but limited the PC versions ability to be more "explosive" in every form.

    AH could have been managed. They have spent too much time solving problems rather than developing content. If Diablo 3 was smooth from day one, we might had have enough content to keep us entertaint and keep our loyality to their products for "free".

    So we will see Diablo in the future. Sales history speaks for itself. They must "just" get their act together and develop a unresistable product with super content. I have no doubt that we will see something good. Because it cannot get any more bad then it is?

    posted a message on Blizzard D3 marketing fail

    I am still convince that the business strategy by providing experience and consolidating customers/community loyalty to the brand by continuously working on patches and content, got serious undermine several times during the seasons.

    Ok. I get it, you not able possible to get all the bugs etc. But the exploit theme is same. The concept is same. It’s all around the greater rift and the multiplier. But ok. Third seasons in a row is not failure I guess. I was a little harsh.

    But okay I cut them some slack. I just wanted to mention and debate about how and what degree the reason events have undermine people views on the franchise?

    I would still credit Blizzard that am impress with 2.2, and its going in the right direction. from vanilla to now.

    People probably would still buy the game and am sure Blizzard got several exiting things under their sleeves for the next and last patch 2.3? And expansion that would ensure our loyalty to the franchise.

    Hope fourth season and maybe last season before exspansion will be smooth? I be waiting with popcorn ;)

    The set is great, i like the pace and burst dmg of the build.

    I would like the sets meteor cd from 8 sec to reduce to 4 seconds. 8 secs too long imo.

    posted a message on How to break 40+ GR with blizzard wiz?
    Wizard are not like barb that can easy do high gr without fishing much they at a higher level.

    If you able to do 39. 40 you can do 40+ if you get the right rift. But its not efficently for farming loot.

    Right now if u get fuld ancients you probably able to do 40-45 easy, then i think we able to do 50 % of 45 to 48 in time and our max around 50. just what i think.

    So round it up, no one can do 45 without new ancients and beat it everytime in time. You need a good rift. but after u get ancients is easy.
    I recommend focus farm fast and efficently for ancients before you go for ranks is a waste of time, since the last week before reset people will push for it. dont do it now.

    EDIT. also the density helps alot, before u fish alot because many maps was not dens. Also since the conduit nerf, i doubt we can get high.

    posted a message on Tips for upcoming Wizard set
    Delsere's Magnum Opus - The Slowtime set

    Yo, everyone i tryed to make 2 videos about the new upcoming Wizard set.
    No estimated time are availble when the sets going to come, but its always good to know which ancients items to save.

    New set: http://i.imgur.com/GXfRZHj.jpg Remember is under development and anything can happen

    Part 1 - Which ancients items you want to save

    Direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ym63ccjAy0o

    Items good to have (Focus Arcane, Cold Alternative lightning, fire: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/serpents-sparker, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/gesture-of-orpheus, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/mirrorball, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/rimeheart, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/wand-of-woh, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/moonlight-ward, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/stone-of-jordan, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/blackthornes-notched-belt, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/blackthornes-duncraig-cross
    Gems to level: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/gogok-of-swiftness, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/bane-of-the-trapped, http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/simplicitys-strength

    Part 2 - Showcase build, talking points about concerns (Paragon and passives not included)

    Direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X7WrdZ49GFQ

    Am excited but also concerned about the damage output, compared to firebird. Lets hope we get to see it soon on an PTR to test it out.
    The best thing to do right now, is not to salvage the items i mention, when you get a good ancients rolls.

    The head slots on the sceenshots, supposed to give you all runes of slowtime.
    The question is also how much damage the mobs are taking from slowtimes from duplicates. 20 or 100 %. Am for the 100 %, because is a pain to keep slowtime up same time dealing damage and generate resource + move around. but like i mention, hope the set comes in ptr soon.

    posted a message on Wizards in 2.1.2 advice needed
    nothing signifikant, all minor changes. if u new is kindda fun. if you a vet, kindda boring, farming ancients is like doing you girlfriend after she got a boobjob.

    And if a Blizzard com read this thread, tell the Developer to move their ass and get the new Wizard set out ASAP.

    posted a message on [Video] Greater rift 40 Wizard Firebird
    Showcasing firebird greater rift level 40

    No Pylons, no Zombies, but semi-hard eliets + 1 necromancer and + 2 Angels and plenty of thunderstorms.

    Direct link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=azMUsCR9YyE

    Build and Gear: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Horazon-2576/hero/8987746

    Subject to changes, using other specc/gear for T6 etc.

    Decent density, mob type easy, took alot damage from necromancer and Angels
    at the end before rift guardian. Died once, in some situation i wanted to pull more,
    but also did not want to die and corpse run.
    Also if you pull and kite them too far, they sometimes stop up and dont take dmg.
    All about balance and feeling.

    Inernal Maiden is very easy to kite, but she just stood still at the end, imo Skeleton king (his pink balls hard to dogde, teleport + range adds) is really hard on 40+
    And Perdition with his Charge/and range attack hurts, all the other ones are easy kite able.

    I had plenty time to spare anyway. They should Fix Ghom, he get stuck at some maps,
    Orlash reset the dots.

    To beat 41 i need a map with one level fuld of elites close to each other, or semi hard one +
    Then its easy to beat the timer, stone rift guardian also makes it alot easy. Have not got a conduit pylon
    at rift boss yet.

    At the end all about spending time grinding the levels and hope for a good RNG.

    posted a message on Firebird 101: Solo Wizard Greater Rifts
    Great guide.

    Maybe offer some specific solution how to kill the 2-3 elites you pulled. And the hard part of keep the dots on the elites and keep them following you.

    Like you shoot black hole first, keep apply blizzard on the track the enemy coming to you etc. Combinations.

Just ask me on this thread. Also if you want me to give advice on improving your charracter, just post you profile and i will try make feedback asap.

    Video 1: How to kiting - After you watch this video, i recommend you to watch my 3 runs on greater rifts 35,38,39 for better understanding on my thoughts proces and teori about kiting. Remember that some greater rifts with angels and thunderstorms etc, are really hard, so you cannot avoid everything, but atleast optimize you survivel by using the map and your positioning to you advantage.

    Quote from popzap
    i've hit rank5th over pass few days(grift 39) , now im dropped to rank10 and still no furnace for me yet :ban:

    pretty much painful at rank40-41 you need a lot of good rng with mob density and good map to get it done.
    Ah i see you on the US ranking. am in EU. Well the Sunkeeper solution is not a bad idea.
