    posted a message on Best Follower Builds 2.4.2

    followers got no set like you have (or lon), no convention, no traveller/compass, focus/restraint, other multipliers from passives, skills or items, leg. gems, .... the list goes on...


    your follower does absolutely no dmg, trust me. it's not 1/15 more like 1/100,000

    and on top they mostly attack with no skill at all (base attack)


    xD


    go for IAS and CDR with the proper useful items like mentioned in this thread

    posted a message on Wizard lovers meta helper

    if any dps build (now after the WD nerf) for the wiz has a chance to jump into the 4man meta it's still related to the Swami/Fazula (Archon) Buff and make it work with either FB or Tal/Vyr. It's still a seperate 300%++ multiplier (up to 700-800% on average during double stacks)


    Ideas that come to my mind are Mammoth Hydra and still ET (Gen Monk will anyway be in a party for RG kill) since Chantodo won't be strong enough.

    Need a skill that can be utilized also during archon so I think it must be Hydra or probably nothing comes close to other classes dps specs.

    Then again the Serpent Sparker is just so weak nowadays. Would at least need a Hydra Skill dmg boost not just the extra cast.

    and you forgot: servers fuck you up --> OUT


    i agree with raimentsix. best season so far. I liked it.

    anyone who thinks it's much different to stack mobs in the middle of the map or just particular corners. It's really not that much of a difference ;)

    posted a message on What's the deal with spamming/doubling/multiplicating builds?

    People do everything for fame.


    I've tried to promote my Twister Archon build for S6 since 1 week into the season. Updated my build here almost every day (and once deleted my original build by mistake, damn that delete button right next to the edit button and browser updating... surpirisingly already got 30k views back then but still much less than the inferior so called "NEW Asian Vyr/Tal Chantodo" Solo Setup).

    It took quite a while and some more famous people to copy/promote my build (main credit to Thargor here again for spreading :) ). Still it took 4-5 weeks longer to be in the 4man meta (and also to be vastly recognized solo, too) only cus the so called famous people (like Quin e.g.) didn't know yet about the build.

    If those guys post a build it will get upvotes automatically and be on frontpage.

    I say just don't care about fame, just help to promote powerful builds so the community can make use of those :)

    They just answered to my customer support ticket with a copy+paste message. What a surprise!

    It's like not even reading what I mentioned in the ticket..

    Won't buy a new copy of the game. This treatment of false positives is ridiculous. Seriously...

    in the current state it feels like you can't be sure of not getting banned randomely.

    But yeah would be interesting to see if they ban my starcraft, too if I like playing ranked games. Guess I'm not good enough in starcraft so they wouldn't care. But then again you never know how their detection software works...

    The recent ban hit me, too. Para 1800 seasonal and 2000 NS. I put alot of dedication into this game and now I get banned for using absolutely nothing. Yet they claim that I used 3rd party (code 52) software (hack, cheat or bot). I guess it's windows update or something that messes up with their warden detection software (which seem to be a mess overall).

    I used a complete clean new computer this season. Nothing but Battle.net, D3 and Windows 7 installed. Not even used a browser for internet research, etc. I got my notebook for that.

    It's like the most innocent false positive ban you could imagine. Still I'm banned.


    And all that 9 days before season ends and I wanted to push seriously into the top 10 solo leaderboard... perfect timing for killing a deticated players motivation.


    Just writing this here so any deticated player knows the ban can hit them anytime. Ridiculous but the simple truth.

    probably like only 5 levels lower than the 1dps/3supp meta. People just will never open their mind which I think is very sad. But that's another topic.


    For efficient runs you just need people that are willing to compromise their builds for party beneficial skills like ip (pride of cassius), cyclone strike/inner sanc, big bad vodoo, etc.

    you dont need to go full retard support and do no dps at all. But it's the most efficient way so everyone will do that and there are actually almost no people even trying something else.


    To me this usual behavior of people got strengthened when people left my party cus of "wiz got low dps" when in fact I was at the top of leaderboards (top10) just didn't use the usual meta build and so my profile dps is different by nature. tbh it's very depressing to see so much ignorance around most meta players.

    whats your point? that gem problem is an issue for NS only and with the power creep this would be a small problem for 1 era at most.


    but yeah, capping paragon is a weird solution since it removes the initial thought why paragon even got introduced back in vanilla. Especially with the uncapped paragon 2.0


    People like wudijo impressively demonstrated that paragon is not the main issue why people cant reach high leaderboard rankings. That's harsh to accept but it's also a fact.

    Quote from Psyborg»

    Each class has a role, if you know that role that is the basics. This is not skill. If a Barb does not know how to pull and when to pull he doesn't know his basic role, etc. for the rest. This is not rocket science..


    Get the best Wizard in knowledge, since Wizards are the DD, so the runs are more dependable from Wizards, with 1k paragon and with 2k paragon, who both know how to stack twisters and how to position and with the same 3 supports and same maps. Who will get further?


    I will tell you, the 1k will get ~92 and the 2k ~102


    Wont agree with you here.
    As I said. I was the wizard in my grps and it was a huge difference when I compared the people I played with. Same for the wizard of course (only that I dont had the experience for that matter). I know it's no rocket science but I can only tell what I've experienced with the people I played with from so called "high end grift communities"
    Of course the grp with the 2k p wizard will get higher than the 1k p wizard (with same 3 support people). But when both wizards would in theory be played by the same guy then the difference would be more like maybe 2 griftlvls at most.
    the 10 lvls could be the case if the 1k wiz is less experienced, has worse gear, caldasanns and not only the 1k paragon levels of stat points are missing. But with your example it's more like 2 grift levels NOT 10.

    @Psyborg


    maybe some "basic skill" yes. But trust me the diablo community is full of people unwilling to learn basic stuff, or just not trying (or dont wanna try).

    At the end of the season I ran many 4 man grps (usually Im a solo player) with my wizard (so I was more or less the only paragon dependant class).

    There was a huge difference between running 85, 90, 95 or 100+ just depending on what the barb/monk/wd did right or wrong.

    Sometimes it was a struggle to do 90 and sometimes 99 was a 100% clear in time.

    So yes, experience and proper play was a much more deciding factor than paragon was.


    You could argue that it's only about the paragon when you always play with the same people who you know what they're doing. Then yes, paragon (and gear) of the DPS class is more or less the only thing you can try to improve to get higher in grifts (beside of RNG of course)

    well written @bagstone.


    you mentioned several reasons why paragon gives even a huge benefit when not including the obvious progression (+5 mainstat / lvl).

    and that is also the reason why it's overall too big of a boost (let it be 3-4 griflvls for 2k paragons just from a character stat pov).


    the mainstat boosting just needs to change. whether that's in form of a simple mainstat nerf (e.g. +1 instead of +5) or a complete new paragon 3.0 is probably a question of ressources blizzard puts into D3.

    The only thing I can't understand is that it takes them so long to change (it obviously will change in the future...)

    posted a message on Ever wonder why few (if any) on the leaderboards cube Unity?

    other classes also have competetive rings. e.g. halo of arlyse for wizards (and even new storm armor ring with the next patch). also other classes now have competetive class specific rings but mostly in the form of a simple dmg reduction buff if using x-skill to compete with unity and other strong ring setups.


    and yes there will always be one best setup. like there always was. but the options are far more competetive and interesting compared to few seasons ago (where there was only rorg + soj grp, rorg + unity solo. nothing else even close)

    give at least 1 example of a "fun" ring instead? orotz comes to mind which is also a very good ring (used in top solo barb and solo wizard builds in S4 but in those cases also very dull... especially in the wizards archon case)


    many builds can work around the CoE proc (e.g. especially the FoK DH) which is gameplay wise much more interesting than anything else a ring can provide.

    you are right that there should be a slightly better alternative when you just seek for increasing you dmg output (like a flat 55-60% dmg increase) so that you dont just wait for the proc and have a more reliable constant dmg increase.
