Ugh I can't believe how many people want a gear swapper. I have a feeling they're a little tired of switching it out themselves, and haven't gotten a macro to do it for them yet to still realize that it's a stupid mechanic that ruins the flow of the game.
Like seriously, people will be getting mad or crying noob when a player in a pub game doesn't have an mf set on switch. It'll become customary to swap into mf gear after every single elite and boss fight.
Are you guys kidding me? Honestly.

That's why I created a macro to do it for me, because it's tedious and not fun at all.
Option 4 please.

It's more like the road workers often work on your road at nights, while you're trying to sleep. They have a sign that they update (supposedly regularly) about the current status of the roads and when they're going to be working on them. It's right in front of your house so it's in plain view, and you know to be prepared for a noisy night ahead when they do announce when they'll be working.Quote from ZeroEdgeirThe primary source of the information was updated (see: forums on official community site). That would be like saying you can't believe they are doing road construction right outside your house, when it was in the newspaper that they would be working on your street for the next 1-2 weeks, and you are appalled because you were not directly informed. The information was provided, you just chose not to read the primary source of said information.
Instead, they decide to not use the sign altogether (without warning) and announce it in their newsletter that you never read - I mean, why would you? You have a sign right there that should be telling you all you need to know about the construction schedules.

But the rest of us are doing it right and switching to mf, killing the elite or boss quickly, then switching back in a matter of seconds.Quote from Kblavkalash
Yeah Number1337 is right. Even though you get more mf, you lose precious time when trying to kill mob with mf gear. I personally die a lot when i change my gear in last seconds.
And I find it stupid and ruins the flow of the game. I'm glad Blizz is going to do something about this..

They would most likely have forced a cap just so the digits don't go off the screen. It doesn't seem as though 12 digits (trillions) can be fit onto the display with the current font used for gold.Quote from KulinAnd its also basic programming to find ways to remove the cap of such things. For example: he could use a unsigned 64Bit Integer instead of 32 Bit. That would mean everyone is be able to earn 18.446.744.073.709.551.615 Gold before reaching the cap! Could take a while, to reach this cap! Even for a korean...

Yes, lol IQ indeed...Quote from kojzlol IQ?
Obviously, if a new player starts practicing pvp he'll eventually get good at it. What this guy is saying and you are failing to understand is that a completely NEW player will get crushed in the arenas IN THE BEGINNING from players that have been playing since release, even if he buys gear.
What's the point in comparing newbs to veterans? Wouldn't it make more sense to be comparing two players of roughly equal skill and time invested in the game?
And then my point stands - for two players that are roughly equally skilled in gaming, if one were to spend their time farming for gear while the other bought their gear outright and spent their time PvP'ing instead, the PVPer will clearly have an advantage.
Twisting this basic fact around by claiming that the farmer will have spent much time playing the game while the buyer is new to the game is like comparing apples with oranges.

So you'll become a better PvP player by practising with your skills in PvM rather than in PvP?Quote from Alucard_TnuocYes, you will. You will understand what abilties do, how they work together if they do, timings of things like meteor,
Are you saying, if a scrub plays a wizard and decides to use meteor, arcane orb, disintegrate, ray of frost, magic missle and energy armor is going to do well in pvp, all those spells are arcane power dumps except two... he may like them due to them all dealing nice damage, but what do you do when you have to wait for arcane power to rise, get shat on because you have no defensive cooldowns, no escapes.
Gear =/= skill, Yes gear DOES help you do better, but if you're shit, gear won't make you go pro.

Please. Are you trying to tell me that if I spent my time farming for my items I'll be more skilled than if I spent my time in PvP after having skipped the farming process by just buying my items?Quote from Saljen
You're right, there is a power for money thing going here, and it will effect PvP, but not the way you think. The people who earn their gear are going to be extremely good at using their character from having to have farmed act 3/4 inferno for hours upon hours. On the other hand, you can ding to level 60, spend $100 and get a badass character, but you'll get DESTROYED in PvP because PvP is going to have a matchmaking system similar to Starcraft 2. This means the people who are legitimately badass and good at playing their character will have a massive advantage from those who just bought it and jumped right in.
Jun 11, 2012Puttah posted a message on It's so obvious when someone spent real-life money on their items.OP, I understand where you're coming from mate. I've been against the RMAH ever since it was first announced.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
And no, not because I care if the troll ranting in general chat is decked out in bought gear, but because of how it's a much more convenient and time saving approach to getting what you want.
It's been mentioned even in this thread that some people get their fun out of buying gear, while others get the fun out of playing the game.
Well, what I find fun (and I'm sure many others do too because this is what drives many of us to farm) is to become rich in the game. You want all those pretty items, but they're always so far out of reach - so you spend hours upon hours farming, searching for deals on the AH, and playing as optimally as you can afford to muster.
But then the RMAH comes along and tempts you into buying millions of gold for less than an hour's worth of your job's pay.
And please don't tell me that buying that gold for money was an option even in D2. In D2 you had to go out of your way to find a site, you had to trust your credit card info with them, and then run the risk of being scammed or worse.
The RMAH makes it easy and affordable, and goes against the spirit of games. I sincerely hope it crashes and burns, just so other gaming companies in the future don't start copying Blizzard on this endeavour.

Or, a more likely scenario is he is botting and/or gathered up all the gold him and his friends had onto 1 account, took the video, then transferred it back.Quote from Mallachor
I actually don't feel like this amount of money is all that unreasonable. Let's say he rushed to inferno on DH or Wizard, and had an intelligent/consistent farming strategy and has been able to get a slew of high quality items.
Let's break down 1 billion gold in D3 right now. That's selling 50 items for 20mil gold each. I would say that that is not incredibly unreasonable for someone who has been farming inferno 3-4 early. Considering I am sure he has done WAY more than 50 auctions, although most of them probably for less than 20 million, idk why people are freaking out about 1.4 billion. It's just consistent dedication.
If you actually look at the number from where D3 stands now, I think it is impressive, but reasonable.

Feb 16, 2012I don't wanna bring down the party, but I have a feeling that there will still be another major patch after this one which revolves around the AH. Not only will they fix the bugs it has, but I reckon they'll probably change its UI as well.Posted in: News

No, I don't really care.
I completely understand your position, but what dumbfounds me is that some people that are in fact curious about D3's development, have gone ahead and asked Bashiok about it instead of reading up on it. It just looks embarrassing, and would get flamed to hell if it was at the Blizzcon Q&A or anything of that magnitude.
How does crafting work?
It's a bit complex to describe in 140 characters. You already read the artisan section on the website?
I see a direct comparison whereas you don't, oh well swing and a miss I guess.

Oh hey there guy, I haven't paid any attention to Diablo's progress for the passed year now, care to fill me in on what's changed?
Go fucking read the news on it, sheesh...
Honestly, it's like your exams are nearing, and you decide to go up to the professor to ask him to start explaining everything to you from the beginning.
Jan 30, 2012Puttah posted a message on Diablo 3 Test Server Maintenance - Beta Patch 11 IncomingWhy do you guys prefer windowed mode? My computer is getting pretty old, but when I turn down all the graphics options to lowest coupled with the smallest resolution possible, it runs smoothly. But when I tried running in fullscreen windowed mode as opposed to just the regular fullscreen mode, it becomes choppy again.Posted in: News
What other reasons are there to use windowed over fullscreen other than quick and easy alt-tabbing? And maybe crashes for some reason...?

I hate living in NZ, the times confuse me!
Yeah PST really bothers me because I'm always used to using GMT, so just then I added another clock on my pc to follow PST specifically. It should help I think...
Still annoying as shit though to have something announced to be released a certain day and then we have to wait till the day after.
Quote from Wetwlly
Changes to Barbarian and Wizard.
Everything about Mystics is now gone.
Some Shrine stuff taken out.
Resource Globes seem to have a animation change possibly.
Lots of Affixes taken out/changed.
They added a new Arena level which Beta Users wont see..
That's all I can see right now
Where do you see this?
Jan 17, 2012Puttah posted a message on 10 Character Limit, Runed Way of the Hundred Fists, Poll, ScreenshotsPosted in: News
Ok well that does answer one half of a point. The gear itself will take up valuable space regardless, and there is no answer to this other than the expected "who will have more than 1 of each class for sc/hc?".Quote from Molsterthey want to add a rune inventory system, (with the old system that is)
I see what you're saying, but don't you think the chosen number of 10 is just a little extreme? It's not equivalent to 20 because of how many characters exist as well as the sc/hc modes. If there were 2-3 characters, then yes 10 would be enough, but with 5 characters and 2 play modes, that's already 10 right there. There is no room on top of that.Quote from Greenjoke
10 is plenty. If someone truly needs to lvl a character over and over and over to feel fulfilled in life then just designate a character slot for leveling characters that will get deleted or sold.
It's not like you would ever get 100s of character slots, so there's going to be a limit regardless. You'd have to delete characters anyways. You can just as easily do that with 10 as you could 15 or 20.
Please don't try to argue that you need 20 or 30 or whatever of the same lvl 60 class. You would never play most of them. They would just sit there.
If you managed to max out (or are even working on) all the characters in each sc and hc mode, then a mate of yours joins the game and you want to play with him - you're telling me that the only way to do this is to delete one of your characters? If the limit was 15 or 20 then at least you have room to move around.
Congratulations, you've just managed to strengthen lMarcusl's point that you don't know what you're talking about.Quote from WishedHeHadBetai do understand why people remake characters. because they have no life and feel the need to repeat exact content over and over and over to avoid the real world. lolol
I doubt it. I'm sure they've already read the threads that give valid reasons why 10 is just too small a limit, and they haven't raised the cap because of that.Quote from greatmars
i think it is too early to think about character slots, and i am sure if blizzard found that people used all there slots and still need more, they will increase the cap.
Finally, 10 per region while useful for those that will be jumping between regions, what about those that will be sticking to one region but do want to have multiple builds per character, or at least the flexibility to create more than 10 for the reasons I've already stated?
And I can't really see anyone playing D3 seriously in a distant region that would give them horrible latency. 10 per region is just a cop-out in my opinion.
Jan 17, 2012Puttah posted a message on 10 Character Limit, Runed Way of the Hundred Fists, Poll, ScreenshotsIt's already been pretty much mentioned but quite a few people will want multiple builds per class, and simply using the respec system won't suffice. Either you'll want to play through the game with your new build, or you won't want to keep a full set of alternate runes and gear in the inventory of one of your characters that you'll need to swap whenever you feel like changing your build up. PvP verse PvE build anyone?Posted in: News
This swapping of items and runes each time isn't just a nuisance in my eyes, but it will also take up a good chunk of your inventory.
Jan 6, 2012Puttah posted a message on Runed Grenades, SK Rating, Class Balance, Level Expansion, Followers, Blue PostsThe golden rune effect looks too similar to the plain grenades, which in itself isn't a problem but it would be very hard to distinguish between someone using no rune or a golden rune. And as for the crimson rune, I expected more out of the poison...Posted in: News
I like Blizzard's answer to PvP balance though, it's way better than "this is meant to be a PvE game so we won't bother with PvP balance".

How so? I think the 15th anniversary deserves something pretty big, and it's about the right time to finally announce the release.
But it's probably just the anxiousness in me talking.
Jan 3, 2012Puttah posted a message on Hardcore PvP, Runed Meteor, Book of Cain, Beta ScreenshotsOk now... the guy is using smileys at the end of his sentences for christ sake! This just has to be the release date announcement... please?Posted in: News
Nov 27, 2011Because characters can now be sold, so +exp to rush characters to the max level is an obvious choice. And also +gold is a consistent income while +magic find is a gamble. Sure, there is potentially more loot to be had, but there is also the potential that getting double the gold would pay off faster.Posted in: News
