Sep 17, 2009Join the Navy SEALs. The things I used to do to terrorists... ever seen a 16 inch KBAR knife? I loved comin' up behind a scout group in the pitch black of 12-4 AM, flat-palmin' the last guy in line where the neck connects to the spine to paralyze him, and slowly drag him away as he watches his buddies fade into the darkness. Stab then slice through and around the chest plate and squeeze the lungs, right after you put small nicks into the stomach so the acid oozes over the insides, it looks like boiling water with the stove turned all the way up splashed onto babys skin, just melts everything it touches. See, even when you're paralyzed you'll feel the pain of pressure on your lungs and stomach acid in your internal, and it's a very slow death. Of course, you can only do that on your free time without an op deadline. Lots of fun.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Jul 25, 2009Would you like to start over? I play durin' the week, Tuesday to Saturday. I get off when my wife gets home from work. This weekend I'm busy though, stepsons birthday tomorrow, and my wife is off Sunday and Monday. I'll see if maybe I'll play though. I'll message you.Posted in: Diablo II
Jul 24, 2009Well, Andariel was a piece of cake, and I just finally finished Act II, I went EVERYWHERE. Duriel took about 5 potions but I had him slowed/knockback and never missed. I love my AR + I still have the same merc from Kashya's reward, she's level 23 goin' on 24, same as I, and I found her a rare socketed bow and put a blue gem in, plus I have a couple + cold dmg small charms so Duriel was practically immobile. Took one try and under 2 mins to kill Duriel. I'm exhausted though... lot of running around to find things. Took me over 8.5 hours. I ended up Imbuing a Crystal Sword. My only weakness is spell damage, I'm hopin' for better items soon or to fare well 'til 30 for that resistance Mastery.Posted in: Diablo II
Thank you all for the support, and thank you for the link, Venom.
I would like to play on B.Net but I suppose everyone isn't interested in startin' over with me?
Jul 24, 2009You guys are awesome! Thank you! Vnom, I suppose an example of comparison would help inspire me in case I start running into trouble I may come up with a solution before it is too late. Thank you!Posted in: Diablo II
I killed Andariel in about 25 hits, didn't have to use even one potion, lost half my HP.
Jul 24, 2009Well, I believe I put one whole level into Str, and the rest into Dex and Vit, mostly Vit. I'm level 15 Jail Lvl 2 now, I have around 250 HP, 130 Defense and 520 AR, level 1 Shout so about 260 Defense. I'm maxing Sword Mastery for now until I reach prerequisite levels for other things. It seems maxing a few of the Calls, Whirlwind and a couple Masteries would be a very good build.Posted in: Diablo II
Thank you very much for the Imbue advice, sounds great. I kept the same Mercenary as well and gave her some decent items, she's killin' most things in 1 hit so when I reach a tough monster, I kill all the weak ones so my attacks aren't disturbed/caused to miss, especially since my merc, Annor, is kickin' ass from the rear. I think I'll do okay against Andariel, I remember readin' somewhere she does a lot of poison so I'm preparing for that. I attack rather quickly too so I'm hoping not too many monsters are around or Andariel is slow enough for me to take them out first.
I will definitely post all questions here. I hope the thread won't lose relevance or be closed due to insignificance. Also, please feel free to give advice that I'm not yet knowledgable enough to ask questions about. The only thing I am not interested in is build advice. I like to be my own player so that if my build/decision-making is a success or a failure, it is MY success or failure.
OK, I just thought of something... a normal socketed item, Imbueable?
Jul 24, 2009So I bought Battle Chest, I'm playin' LoD, thanks to Zhar; I found it for $10.Posted in: Diablo II
Anyway, I'm in the Jail in Act 1 (I started playin' last night, I'm on my 6th hour of gameplay. [I like to go EVERYWHERE and read EVERYTHING and find EVERYTHING possible, so I'm slower, but I prefer patient.] lol)
I got the quest for Charsi to Imbue one of my items, I'm a sword Barb; I wanted to know if anyone could inform me what the best sword is to get to Imbue, and where. I also was curious if the sword has to be normal, magic, rare, etc. Somethin' told me it was a smart idea to be patient and come ask than waste her Imbue on a crappy sword. Also, I was wondering if it's a better idea to Imbue another item, and which kind? (Weapon, Armor? etc. or if it's just a matter of personal preference?)
Also, I was curious if anyone could explain Attack Rating, Strength, Dexterity, and all of those numbers/features/components, however it would be worded, or if someone can tell me a good place to find those answers?
I greatly appreciate any advice/help. Thank you!
Jul 20, 2009Hey, I'm interested in buyin' the latest version of Diablo, I believe it's LoD?Posted in: Diablo II
What is the best to buy (I.E. a combination pack or somethin'?), and where for the cheapest, considerin' Diablo III will be out soon enough? [Keep in mind I've never played so I won't get too far by the time DIII comes out.]
Jul 17, 2009Posted in: Diablo IIQuote from "dunhac82" »Yeah I would agree that Act III was the longest and most boring act in the game hands down. God, that stupid ass maze of Jungles that made no sense whatsoever. I'm in spider forest, no now I'm in the great marsh, now I'm in the Flayer Jungle, what the hell? I don't even think people that worked on the game liked Act III or the designer for that act was a sadist along with the guy that came up with the idea for the maggot lair.
LMFAO! designer was a sadist, LMFAO! holy shit, yall make it sound like torture
Jul 16, 2009wow, puttah.. wow.. lmao.. if a unique item lead to sex, then it simply doesnt take much to get em goin in the 1st placePosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
and yes, i guarantee i will be the guy who raises the questions, 'this guy been livin under a rock? d3 been out forever' it would be nice to play all the time tho, especially since me and the wife smoke bud together, i couldnt imagine a game like d3 high as hell, especially since ive never played d1 or d2
but i pretty much only work so i suppose if the game compels me that greatly we might end up playin all the time and maybe take breaks to go back to bein outdoorsy every couple weeks or so lol
AA3? is that a patch or somethin? i dont even remember hearin about AA2, but i played patch 2.x so if it goes by patch then ive played AA2, id like to know whats new with 3, hopefully a lot of new goodies
Jul 15, 2009lol, i thought so. i figure after the initial splurge dies down more communication will happenPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
lol, now that i rereard your post it makes sense, id call gaming my kill-time.
i dont see myself playin d3 too much, maybe a few hours per week. im too outdoorsy.
from the looks of the site it seems like a few hours per week will take me a long time to get anywhere.
ive only ever played BF42, CStrike, America's Army, CoD, MoH and Frozen Throne, used to play ladder on Asia now btanks, bships and DotA so d3 will definitely be new to me

Apr 28, 2009Of course they wanna spend time knowing what we want so that they can make it for us so that we give them money for it......Posted in: News
Anyone selling or inventing anything does this, Blizz is just smarter and takes it way further, hence we the fans take our loyalty and checkbooks further. Basic math/cause & effect.
Nope, Blizz doesn't rush WoW. I have one buddy who plays WoW; when WotLK came out he completed most of it in about 20 hours.
If you (WORKED HARD TO) pay monthly to play Diablo II and completed 95% of what LoD had to offer in 20 hours, how long would you pay money to play a game with nothing left to offer?
Apr 28, 2009Posted in: NewsQuote from "Lunchbox" »Think about how quickly they were able to release expansions for WoW. It makes you wonder why D3 is taking so long.
Because WoW players won't tolerate Blizz's bullshit when they're making monthly payments and they'll move on to another game instead of waiting, meanwhile us Diablo players get demonic dick in the ass since they aren't making money off of us. I don't care how much you love the game, a business is a business and you're profit, so remember this for the next time you go to say "Blizz 'cares' about their fans" and correct yourself, "Blizz 'customer services' their fans." What better way to make us loyal than to make us feel good and involve our emotions in the product? Business 101, if you're sellin' somethin' involvin' the customer/client's emotions, you will succeed.
Nov 20, 2008USNSEALs posted a message on Blizzcast #6 - Diablo III Senior Artist & New Monster ArtActually, the game Neverwinter Nights has a mod built by a few guys, their own server, it took them 6 years to make the world, called Path of Ascension, and the ultimate bows in their world have unlimited ammo - how it happens is, the ancient power within them summons arrows via magic. I think if Neverwinter Nights can do it, Diablo III damn well better.Posted in: News
Nov 13, 2008Lmfao. Hella lack of mercy. Personal kick in the balls to all petitioners with a zest of 'I told you ridiculous motherfuckers Diablo III wouldn't look that way, but you just couldn't wait for BlizzCon, could you?'Posted in: News
Oct 13, 2008Well, I think the point of it is - a Wizard should be a Wizard.Posted in: News
In Diablo II it would've been a Wizard nuking the shit out of you, and tanking damage like a Barb at the same time.
If anything, this would help keep focus on the story.
What Wizard has the vigor of a Barbarian?
That's one of the things that made Diablo II not set itself apart from other games.
It really makes you play your character like it should be played.
Furthermore, every single person, if they haven't said they are for, have not said they are not for realism.
I don't know about you guys and gals, but I didn't get to pump any stats into the Huge Muscles category for my birthday.
Oct 2, 2008Two questions:Posted in: News
In Diablo II, if you took the time to really enjoy every detail, playing it the second time around, there was a feel of 'I know what to do next. I remember this guy was here, I know I have to do this to get to this.' It didn't even take 3 or 4 completions.
How is Diablo III going to improve upon that if at all?
Pertaining to that, Diablo II didn't have much storyline or that feeling you get when you read a book; it had cinematics between Acts, but maybe a few minutes, as compared to the roughly 5 hours of gameplay.
How will Diablo III be more immersed in the story, the feeling of being in an entirely other world and learning that world every minute, as opposed to fighting monsters for a quest with a short story you received from an NPC and a cinematic between Acts?
Aug 8, 2008Posted in: NewsQuote from "paralleluniverse" »I can see it already. Everyone is gonna blame the game getting darker in Act 3, 4, and 5 on the new art director. Although its already been said that the game will get progressively darker.
You are an intelligentsia and a prophet, mister.
Aug 7, 2008An entire company is not going to change a damn thing for one Mr. The New Asshole.Posted in: News
He may provide suggestions, such as anyone else on the team, and they'll be democratically considered.
The difference is I doubt he'll slam his keyboard and start a petition when he's disagreed with.
That's the thick line between professional and non.
Most importantly, Art Directors direct. They lead, supervise, organize, structurize, junction communication and ensure function. Art Developers develop.
Directors make sure developers have the resources they need and that they're unhindered in their goals. Basically, they're mentors. It's up to the children.
Aug 7, 2008I'd say it's hope so the petitioners be quiet.Posted in: News
They've already said nothing is going to change and yet still petitioners continue.
I think they've grown tired and weary of responding when they've already written it in stone.
Giving petitioners hope means no more complaints will arise and so they won't have anything to respond to, therefore not having a seperate attack of "They don't listen to the 'fans.'"
Whatever the reason is, if this is true, it definitely is not about changing the art.
These announcements and updates are given by representatives, not the decision makers.
Every boss has a boss, and the top dogs have made their decision.
You don't make an official statement to millions and then regress on a whim.
A refute to my reasoning of the hiring being false most likely and sensibly would be 'Right, so they post an ad to hire when they're not hiring.'
To this I say - who says they won't find every applicant 'undesirable' for their needs?
They don't need to write an official statement to why they don't want to hire you.
Translation: this isn't a question of possibility, but probability.
Aug 5, 2008USNSEALs posted a message on MTV - Necromancer May Return, Diablo 3 Expansion Confirmed?PvP trapping was way too fun.Posted in: News
I used to use a laptop for any char, challenge a duel, just run around and on my main PC have hella traps and those hard striking attacks - catch them by surprise.
On topic, I never liked the Necro's look. He looks like an uglier Keanu Reeves aged 70.
I played him after I got 99 on all the other chars and collected the top gear with the perfect stats and it was some refreshing and interesting fun, a different angle to play the game from, but definitely not a stark raving mad first choice.
I don't have a favorite character. They all had their perspectives of great fun, a different approach.
I did find it fun beating the shit out of people with him on Open though, especially the Paladins with the quick three strike ability. Necro was a madman on Open.
