    posted a message on Quick Computer Upgrade Question
    To be honest, before you plan on SLI'ing, no matter which cards you use, I'd recommend upgrading to at least a 600-700 PSU, modular (personal preference). Also, I'd recommend waiting for nVidia's new 3xx and 4xx line to come out closer to the end of this year. All of the "big" cards (if you can find them) will drop in value (i.e. 285 // 295 will drop a lot).

    8600GT isn't that good of a card currently, you can pick up a 250 card pretty cheap these days, and those have some power behind them.

    posted a message on New computer. Help!
    So.... I just finished building this beast of a computer. I would advise not doing what I did... because I'm a geek, and I have the money right now to build said beast, and lack the patience to wait six to eight months.

    And now, without further ado....

    Every now and then, when I'm PvPing in WoW, or MW2, I'll run around screaming "Not even death can save you from me".... or "DOCTOR OCTOGONAPUS! BBBLLLAAAAHHHHH!!!!!!" Just depends on my mood at the time.

    Oh come on. People are pissed about what's on the patch, they're pissed about how much Blizzard built it up about it being so good. It's really pathetic it took them 8 months + to create this.


    And yet... it really was only about two and a half months of work because of the Warcraft III security breach.... oh wait... lets throw out that because it doesn't fit your point.

    posted a message on The Wait is Over -- PTR Patch 1.13
    1) Blizzard already made its money off of Diablo II and LoD many years ago. This is not a scheme to get more people playing it again. They already make more than enough money from WoW. Case in point: Blizzcon.

    2) To satisfy the player-base that has consistently questioned the release of the 1.13 patch, despite the numerous posts by the Community Manager on the reason for the delays, Blizzard opened the beta for 1.13 with what they've accomplished thus far.

    3) This amalgamation of random fixes was completed by a small development team that has tirelessly worked on content spanning two legacy games. This development team could be used elsewhere, but Blizzard has its fans in mind, and thusly has worked to repolish the Diablo II game for its fanbase.

    4) In this author's honest opinion, instead of complaining on how much Blizzard sucks, one should be thankful that Blizzard has not forgotten its Legacy titles like so many other companies have before it, and anticipate the upcoming changes that will inevitably occur. These initial changes are just the stepping stones for what will come.

    It's public testing the changes they made, they never said they were gonna add anything else. They are testing these changes to make sure they are good then that is it. This is the patch. Just checking to see if it all works. I doubt they will make any major changes to what is already done.

    Actually, that is false. Baishok has already implied that these are just preliminary changes to test. This was to satisfy everyone who has complained in one form or fashion about the length of time between the initial post about 1.13 and now.

    To be honest, I've been working on an alternate signature for you... and with the whole scorpion... it doesn't really look good... I'll see if I can make one that lives up to my expectations though. Let me get that avatar for you. I'll send your avatar through the PM system.

    For now, you should "equip" that one signature =D

    posted a message on Discussion: The last class is NOT a ranged class
    Okay, I've read a lot of threads saying that the last class will be some sort of Rogue // Amazon type thing.

    The whole point of this thread is to discuss how it won't be (or for you to prove me wrong). I will be using logic and citations to prove my case. Please be mature and discuss rationally.

    We've seen several archetypes thus far in what Blizzard has released:
    ~Barbarian - Sword and Shield type pure Melee warrior
    ~Witch Doctor - Enemy Manipulation, Damage over Time, and minion creator
    ~Wizard - Pure caster
    ~Monk - Speed Powerhouse

    And Damage Archetypes being;
    ~Pure Strong Melee (Barbarian)
    ~Disease and Fire (Witch Doctor)
    ~Lightning, Arcane, Cold (Wizard)
    ~Holy and Fast, Weaker Melee (Monk)

    Now, if you've seen any of the gameplay footage, we all know that each class can hold its own in both short and long range battles. Even the Barbarian uses Ground Slam and Leap Attack, and the Wizard uses something similar to Arcane Explosion.
    Barbarian Gameplay Video
    Witch Doctor Gameplay Video
    Wizard Gameplay Video
    Monk Gameplay Video


    Being that each class is capable of decimating its opponent at all ranges, we can safely assume that the last class will be able to do that very same thing. Based on this strand of logic, the last class cannot be a pure ranged class.

    Now, someone had pointed out to me earlier that a short bow was shown as a dropped item in the Barbarian gameplay trailer at around 3:55. That is an excellent counterpoint, but the only issue is that the game has evolved quite a bit since then. To illustrate my point, I challenge you to find a Staff, some type of Claw-type weapon, or a wizard's orb in any of the previous videos, before the class was announced. I watched each video closely and didn't find it at all. Why? The game has changed tremendously.

    So, now that I've finally laid my claim, I challenge you all to an honest debate as to why I'm wrong.

    posted a message on [Art] Oath's Signature Emporium
    Wow, so much work to be done! I will do what I can in a timely order. I just have a few questions.

    Lt. Venom: I'll do what I can, but finding the pre-existing images of Rathma followers destroyed by a demonic dragon will be rather difficult. If you know of any images in mind you'd like 'shopped, please let me know. Otherwise, I'll see what I can do. (Good idea by the way, sounds epic)

    Mjollnir: Very nice on the Norse front. My faith is actually Asatru, Odin is my patron God, so doing this piece as a tribute to Asgard would be my honor. ((My favorite saying was "Your god hung on a cross for eight hours, my god hung on a tree for nine days. Any questions?" ))

    DieHardDiabloFan: Hell yeah, James Hetfield. I'll do my best.

    I will be working on these three over the course of the next week. It shouldn't take me much longer than that to finish all three of them. I'll try to post updates as often as I can.

    (( Edit: That image is unfortunately not Warlock T8 (though it does resemble it), but actually a rendering of the Avatar of Grenth from Guild Wars. I love using high quality renders. ))
