    posted a message on Help with Build

    You read my post and quoted my post and still think im not aware of LoN?


    Of course i know what LoN is, my point was that i fail to understand the desire to farm up a dozen ancient legendaries, only to shoehorn them into a build that is already catered for by a set.

    I get the desire to cobble something together to play an otherwise unused skill but far too often it seems thats not the case, either its using the same skillls as a set build for barely any improvement or only half ancient because the gear hasnt even been collected.


    As for your set builds made obsolete, thats only emerged this season with the new gem added in, and even then its only Necro and WD that have noticable power gain.


    Well if theres no better explanation for it i guess its just laze, copy the top spec on the leaderboards cos theres a lack of will to search for current builds or make their own.

    Necro since this is posted from last season



    But slightly OT

    I dont understand why people farm for Ancient gear only to then shoehorn it into a build that is catered for perfectly well by set pieces already. Is there some sort of non set league like the solo self found?

    posted a message on Rifts Level vs. Character Level & Character Stats

    Its a serious post? I thought it was just a really crap troll.


    But If youre honestly looking for numbers, youve just about completely failed to grasp the whole point of rifts and the key to why D3 is so replayable. The difficulty is personal.


    Find better gear, complete higher rifts, spend paragon and repeat.

    I dont really play wizard but until someone replies that does, id point you to the toolitp for Meteor-Star Pact and guess that yes you are losing damage.

    posted a message on Primal Anchient droprates?

    I still think it was a bad choice not to have that guaranteed first Primal at GR 70 be an item that is being worn.


    With the extremely low drop rate we have the chances of even getting a useful legendary with the desired rolls for a specific build are already low...

    Monk for example has 226 useable items add to that 12 follower tokens and theres only a 0.055 chance of getting even a normal legendary drop thats worn, never mind useable and thats discounting non class loot and potions.


    Ill let someone else do the maths but the chance of a wearable legendary being Primal and then even useable is just so low its not a constructive addition to the game, Ive said it before and ill say it again layered RNG is not fun, yes i know its not actually layered in implementation but in play it might as well be.


    Personally I dont think its a sensible system at all, Gamers are conditioned to work to completion (unless you play open ended games exclusively) and Primals are the bait used to lure us into playing more because we have that desire to achieve completion. Current drop rates are closer to abuse than reward, and with the Paragon system we already have a mechanism to keep the game from completion, we didnt need Primals to be yet another.

    posted a message on Help: Reforging advice

    What youve heard is nothing more than someone elses need to find a pattern in RNG


    It makes no difference if you choose to reforge it 5 or 500 times, recieving a primal or ancient upgrade is RNG. Its no more likely to happen with a different piece and since the costs dont increase when using the cube theres no reason to salvage.



    Its a weird system to have heard though, its either a confusion with the rising costs for enchanting at Myriam or its like someone heard about gamblers fallacy but then didnt fully understand it.

    posted a message on No new crimson recipe drop?

    Yeah, if you only look at the set recipes they actually drop over the course of several sets of bounties, but there usually seems to be one or two recipes that drop much later so its actually quite normal to do quite a few sets of bounties with no recipes at all before those last one or two drop. Its also random which recipes drop when, so while you may be waiting for Cains this season, next season it might be Crimsons that drops late or you may even get lucky and not even experience any delay.


    For Example this season Cains and Aughilds recipes dropped after id cleared 3 full sets of bounties with no recipes. Last season however it was quite a few sets without recipes before Sages dropped. Im not sure if paragon or time played triggers the drops but it doesnt feel like plain RNG to have that gap so often. But then RNG always feels personal :)

    posted a message on DiabloFans says farewell. Let's celebrate the good old times once more!

    Well that sucks monkey balls, Im not interested in Reddit or you tube vids that take 10 mins to present a 30 second point. Personally i dont see how any other resources trump DFans and the Planner.


    Still thanks for being here for the last few years, youve done a great service for us all. I do feel youre going to be missed a lot more when youre gone but with the current climate of Blizz-bashing actually being quite justified , that make take a while.

    maybe partially the answer, because why would you want thank them? they were just farming and probably didnt care whoever joined.

    in the process taking away the best part of the game. being a noob and experiencing everything by your own from scratch.

    Being boosted and not knowing what it even meant is a bad thing and can ruin your overall experience.

    Diablo does not automatically throw you into a group with horrible people that selfishly want to steal the experience of everything being new, it puts you into game by yourself and its your own choice to either experience the game as you wish or group with others and risk the experience being different.


    If you cant bring yourself to thank others for the time they spend playing with you or just to be courteous, then youre just contributing to its toxicity and should rereconsider your choice of playstyle.

    posted a message on About 800 employees sacked at Blizzard

    I suppose its open to interpretation yet again but my take after reading the whole article here is that the new hires are being offset by layoffs elsewhere and with WoW immune and Diablo recruiting that leaves HotS having to make the cull and weve already seen the cuts happening there with ESports already terminated and it starting a slower release cycle for the foreseeable future.


    On that subject, I may be leaping to conclusions, but the current timing has HotS starting its event towards the end of our season (and maybe the lull between patches for WoW) and if that timing is maintained Blizzard may be repositioning HotS as a way to maintain player-count within the Blizzard stable. Although if that does prove right im not sure its purely honest intentions since HotS is basically a micro transaction delivery platform.

    The layoffs dont have anything to do with development, and Diablo development is actually recruiting, this is just a consequence of no major releases planned for 2019

    Welcome to D3. I suggest seriously considering switching to better games. ^^

    Ah, game forums... The perfect provider of stupidity and anonymity that allows someone to think theyre so omniscient they can declare something unfit for another persons taste without ever knowing them.


    Truly this is the age of miracles and we should all bow down and.... ah screw it lets just have fun with the new village idiot and point out the futility of posting on a Diablo forum that he has nothing good to say about Diablo.

    Because the other players were well geared and boosting you in a rift level far beyond your own capabilities.


    For a lot of players , their seasonal characters are now very well geared and can carry a non contributing character through very high level rifts, if you dont have the gear yourself even a skeleton will one-shot you and if youre low on Paragon levels a high GR will contain enough experience to boost by far more than just 100 or so.


    Judging by the post, Id suggest sending a whisper thanking them for the boost as it seems you didnt realise that was what they were doing :)
