    it's not like Istvans are completely mandatory to make a supp monk work. But overall you're right of course :)

    well, so it's not possible on pants and belt either.

    on offhands it's also possible. like sources and mojos for example. So should be possible on shields too.


    so now we have a complete list of which items can and cannot roll it as a secondary affix ;)

    the stat cannot be rolled on weapons, helms, bracers and gloves. that's what I can tell for sure.

    but need some zmonk expert to answer your question for all possible items.

    posted a message on Message from European Clans (About Botting)

    I agree. thud or bot, they are all cheats so they all should get the same punishment. first people need to realize that and delete any other software that enhances d3 in any way.

    the next steps would obviously for blizzard to react and ban accordingly, afterwards we could ask for some legit features to be implemented in an upcoming patch. some useful things that for example thud delivers right now.


    one can dream, ...I fear it just wont happen.


    look how blizzard handled the last NS cycle. people were essentially encouraged to exploit.

    What I'm saying is that I have not much hope for such a petition, especially if the community is pretty separated about what is legit and what is not. What's more important and what's less... it's not really a strong message.

    posted a message on GR calculator - max XP/hour

    well done. I don't think many people wont bother but it clearly shows again how bad looking for pools actually is. especially if you're low paragon.

    One additional issue with LF pools is that even though it's not XP/hour related you miss out on finding a certain amount of possible item drops / gem upgrades / mats. (time you could spend in the next rift or GR)

    I usually skip them all together during a season. Wouldn't bother before 1,5k paragon at all. It's just a nice to have bonus if you're running some normal rifts anyway and gather pools on the run to do some GRs afterwards.

    posted a message on BlizzCon gives Diablo no love or no news...
    Quote from TheFuuZ»

    Well I don't want to be the one that gets you people all hyped, at least take it with a grain of salt, they actually said at the opening ceremony that they will announce new stuff for "ALL" the franchises. That in my opinion includes the Diablo Franchise aswell.


    So they could simply announce something later today (second day).


    We will see... If not, there will be news coming 2018 for whatever they are about to share with us regarding our beloved Diablo Franchise.

    those are just empty words to keep the hype level as high as possible. turn on your tv and watch some random commercials... I think you get the point. If I want some real value information I follow actual Diablo news (like on this site) and no opening ceromony at blizzcon ;)
    they said there would be no Diablo news, that's all that counts for me. So it's as expected. No disappointment.

    posted a message on Challenge Rifts - A missed opportunity or an unfinished mode
    Quote from Skelos_bg»

    From what I read at the US forums atm, it seems the current CRifts for US and EU pretty much illustrate all the points discussed in this OP.


    - US CR is the hardest until now and people flame in the forums that the build is bad and the rift is hard to beat

    - EU CR is 2 min GR14 with full set and everyone completed it on their first try


    I hope the D3 devs evaluate the feedback from the community and use it to improve the CR mode.



    I did that GR14 on EU. I mean come on. You don't even need either sets or supporting legendaries to complete GR14. Running a strong but also fairly slow build on GR14. I still don't get the purpose of those.
    One thing was nice for sure. It was easy and faster than any bounty run. If that's what CRs are regulated to I'm fine with doing them once a week. Still a pity when you think about the potential they have. And then again reading the US has a really bad CR this week... so still almost a waste of time checking and evaluating if it's worth running or skipping each and every week.

    posted a message on Challenge Rifts - A missed opportunity or an unfinished mode

    I agree that's the only thing I like about them, too. However the builds that came up (especially right after they were introduced and I checked them every week) were so messy it wasnt even funny to run most builds. Like Archon builds with no CDR, no Ressource regen ouside Archon. Just an example. No synergy whatsoever in those builds. Dull, stupid and no reason to play them at all. Even a pain to get those 5 min runs done.


    The original runners most likely came up with those builds while farming items and having no clue what else to put in cube, which items to use... or still farming those meta related items and on the way just putting placeholders in those missing slots...

    Blizzard announced CRs in a way that I thought we would see something like this:


    builds with interesting ideas using synergies of the selected skills/items. while not being top builds but still trying to make them work in the best way possible (zombie charger wd, spectral blade wizard, weapon throw barb, you name it...). no useless items equipped, no stupid gameplay because the original runner had no clue about the game, and so on...


    That's not the case. Not even close. That's why it's utterly disappointing and a waste of time to me.

    posted a message on Templar BiS Weapon

    there's really no BiS weapon for any follower


    what's BiS and even mandatory is "your follower won't die" relics, an Oculus Ring and Unity (if you're wearing a Unity, too).


    All stats of those Items are neglectable. I would also argue that Thunderfury is the best for the Slow effect (probably I would advice Ess of Johan for the Necklace spot, too), but yeah in the end it doesnt make any difference at all really. Can even leave those slots empty, the impact it actually has is close to zero...

    posted a message on 2.6.1 new damage affixes vs items skill damage

    The new Items Orange dmg affixes are all multiplicative (i.e. Condemn 800% from Fyrdehrs Wrath) . Skilldmg on Items like 15% Condemn on Shoulders (Blue affix) are in the category "damage increased by skills" and additive with all kinds of other buffs and debuffs in that category (blue affix skill dmg; holy cause passive; heavenly strenght passive; Toxin gem debuff; stromgarm bracers debuff; Wizard Cold blooded passive; Taeguk gem; ..... google to Check the whole list of the "dmg increased by skills" category. The category itself is its own multiplier but all Skills/items/passives of that category are additive with each other. So you need to look at the whole picture. TL;DR: 800% orange dmg affix is multiplicative; 15% Blue dmg affix is additive however multiplicative with These new items. in your example 1.15 (shoulders) x 9 (Fydr Wrath) = 10.35 multiplier. ... sry for Format. Typed on My phone... ( BTW. Akkhan set is x16 multi, Akkhan Skill Akarat Champ is x1.35 multi)

    posted a message on Speed 100 in 2mins20

    I did a 4:17 on 100 the other day. On my solo wiz. Meh, still pretty proud of the speed of my solo runs (especially the one with the mentioned time) xD

    Still missing the group multiplier and double the time. So I guess I still level only at ~1/3 of the speed in comparison to the fastest para-farmer.

    posted a message on Anyone else thinking Blizz should return Mirinae Inarius proc to the before nerf ???

    well I don't own the necro pack, from challenge rifts I know that I don't like the class at all.

    but one thing here I can say for sure, if they ever make mirinae viable again and ONLY for necro then they should definetely consider changing the theme of the gem from holy to anything else.

    It makes like the least sense to have a necro use a holy gem xP


    Would be nice though if it would be a powerful gem for classes that use fast holy skills. So that would be only for Monks and Crusaders.

    posted a message on Rebalancing in 2.6.1
    Quote from Lerbrottarn»

    All these damage buffs and not a single buff to toughness. We're gonna one-shot everything until a certain point, then we'll get one-shotted instead. Hating this...



    Well this is not exactly true.
    Just a few examples. Bone Armor and Soul Harvest both are now more comfortable to use and get your (def) stacks up.
    The one item that stands out the most for me in regard to def bonuses is the wizards orb of infinite depth. which def component seems like to get buffed from 15% to 20% which is HUGE! 60% dmg mitigation (which is already quite strong) will be then 80%!!! that's the most ridiculous dmg mitigation from a single source in the entire game. It's just another separate 50% dmg reduce on top of the current 60%.

    And by the way I havent carefully read all the notes and numbers as of yet...

    So read all carefully before you complain, cus to me your complain is coming out of the blue.... ;)
