    posted a message on DiabloFans Calculator Build Contest (ONE POST ONLY)


    This is my build for a PvE Demon hunter with high survivability without sacrificing damage:

    I chose Bola Shot for my Hatred generator due to its minor AoE, and went with Volatile Explosions for the rune to make the AoE more effective. Rapid Fire is my secondary attack because it has a high output for single targets such as bosses and champions and with the Fire Support rune it makes it a good skill for packs of mobs as well.

    Vault and Caltrops are my first and second action bar skills because I plan on using them very often. My play style will be to run up to a group, lay the Caltrops, and vault away to start attacking. The Jagged spikes and Action Shot runes on these attacks add damage to both of the skills. These will make it so I will always be doing damage, even when I'm setting up for Bola Shot and Rapid Fire.

    Finally I have chosen cluster arrow and Marked for Death. Cluster arrow will be my primary AoE when encountering small groups. I chose the Maelstrom rune because it increases the damage, but more importantly it will heal me, allowing me to avoid death with ease in a pack of small fast mobs. Marked for Death will be used on boss monsters as well as packs of unique monsters. I picked the Valley for Death rune to make the debuff an AoE in order to work better against multiple unique monsters.

    For the passive skills I chose Steady Aim, Cull the Weak, and Archery. These skills work very well together to increase my ranged damage, rounding out my build. Using the Caltrops and Vault in unison, I will always be a good distance from slowed monsters, and will almost always be getting the benefits from these passive skills wile increasing my survivability.

    This is a good idea for a contest. I am a long time lurker here but I have only ever posted a hand full of times.

    I know this is going to get me more active in this community (although my luck is awful). Good luck everyone, and have fun :)

    EDIT- Apparently I have posted 55 other times. WAY more than I thought haha.

    Heaven, hell and the dreadlands please. I'm sick of all these earthly places in games, I want something unique and crazy.

    Also, the fanboy in me wants Ureh. I loved the books! Only problem is, with the ending of that book, it might make it a little hard to put demons up in that biz.

    posted a message on My friends TERA Online video
    So my best friend IRL is the kind of person who devotes her whole life to the game that she is playing. She often makes Wikis, fan sites, videos, and blows up the forums of her current obsession.

    The new game on her sites (and mine) is TERA online, a pay to play action MMO. Her boyfriend and her bought a Korean account (because the game isn't out in america for those who don't know) and she is going to make a video series on her playing it. Please check it out.

    I have played a little bit on her account as an AoE mage and I had a blast! The only problem I have is that I don't know how im going to juggle playing TERA and D3... First world problems...

    I'm really just hoping for "+1 to X skill" or something along the lines of some of the more rare D2 charms.

    Since all they do is give stats points
    They will do more, although blizzard has not disclosed what exactly they will do besides stats.

    posted a message on D3 clans?
    A lot of people seem to bring up trading when talking about clans. Yes you will be able to trade with your clan mates, but I think a lot of people are stuck on the D2 style of trading item for item. With the new unannounced system, we can assume we wont need trade games and clans to trade with.

    I want clans just so I can play with the same people more often and make friends, I always have a more enriching experience with a game when I'm in a good clan/guild. I just pray to the light that we will have a in game clan chat and not have to rely on using chat channels in the battle.net lobby.

    posted a message on How many more active members will Diablofans have after D3 walks the Earth?
    See some of my Spore creatures here if you'd like.

    That loaf of bread is amazing, great job haha!

    As for on topic, I am not sure how many will stay, but I assume a lot will move to the official forums. I am an active member (I come to this site at least once a day) but I mostly lurk. The official forums don't impress me, most of it is word vomit and people throwing around memes, so I think I'm going to stay here after the game is out.

    posted a message on Guild support/Unknown systems
    I would LOVE to see clans/guild. Always having a pool of friends to ask questions, play with, trade with, talk to, get help from is a huge benefit and adds a lot of replayability IMO. If there is going to be a system and it supports large guilds, there had better be a DiabloFans guild.
