    posted a message on Zei's competitive with Iceblink?

    I'm basically with DemoBytom here. I'm nearly always inside the same bubble as the mobs I'm attacking, or just outside. It stops them following me around and leaving the bubbles. Because of that, Zei's is rarely going to get it's full potential.


    I've been using Trapped, Toxin and Iceblink, mainly because I don't really know what else to use. I was considering Zei's, but as I say, I won't get everything out of it.

    posted a message on Let's talk about Delsere's Magnum Opus

    I've been trying this set with an Arcane build, using the Eneregy Twister - Wicked Wind, MM-Charged Blast, Mirrorball and the bracers that pull in mobs. I've been really enjoying it, though the damage isn't great, it's definitely fun being able to pull a whole bunch of mobs into the bubble.


    Combined with a bit of APoC, Magic Weapon Conduit and Astral Presence, I can basically spam the twisters, and so, spam the bubbles.


    It's certainly a nice play style, but I can definitely see the new Triumvirate and Arcane Orb being flat out best for this set.

    Using a low level weapon with Gem of Ease isn't how it is meant to be used :). Level it up to 25 and socket an ancient level 70 weapon from your main and hand it to your alt and have fun with it.


    Imagine how you can lvl in hardcore with this ;)


    Yeah, put it onto T6, quickly outlevel your armour and get one-shotted the next time you get hit and lose the gem. <-- From experience.

    posted a message on Discuss: Blizzcon Elemental Ring! (update: read #29)

    So I just checked. This ring doesn't seem to affect Archon at all using Vyr's.


    I've been testing an Arcane Delsere's so I had 56% to arcane. I chose a Cold rune on Archon just to make certain how Archon chose it's element. I used Temporal Flux passive and used Archon with this ring.


    No matter what element it was on, Archon was always proc'ing Temporal Flux, so it was doing Arcane (my highest element%).


    It seems this ring doesn't add to the element% like element% does on gear. So there goes that idea.

    Read numerous blue posts that have said otherwise. Read that it will use the element that you have the highest % toward. If that's wrong, the blues were wrong. ?


    Edit: Yeah it does.

    Vyr's Amazing Arcana

    Will now choose which element to use based on the player's highest +% Elemental Damage type

    I have to wonder how the bonus is applied to things like Vyr's all-rune Archon? Will Archon constantly change it's element in sync with the ring due to Archon using your highest +element% value?


    If it does, Archon could be an interesting build now. It's just a shame they're not changing Vyr's. I suppose they might change Vyr's later, but I'm not holding out any hopes.

    posted a message on Why do people do full clears on regular Rifts?

    My friend and I did 30 torment 5 full-clear rifts. We ended up finding at least 10 blood thief's, and 5 goblin packs (one even double spawned!!!), all of them after the guardian. We'd have missed them if we closed.


    We only really found the odd treasure goblin before the guardian, so yeah. Maybe it's RNG and a small sample size, but we've found it's better to continue actually now because we ended up with thousands of shards more than we would have otherwise.

    Last season I found 3 in the first two days, and then never found another one at all for the entire season. This season I've already found 9. So, yeah.

    posted a message on Why do people do full clears on regular Rifts?

    It's like ShadyW said about keys. If you don't have many (and don't like farming them like a lot of players, myself included), you might want to get the most out of your keys which means fully clearing them. You do get the rift double legendary chance throughout.


    But, if you have a lot of keys, why clear when killing the guardian and closing is a far, far quicker way of getting blood shards.

    AAARRRRGGGHHHH!!!!


    I've crafted 38 Devastators now... not even one has been Ancient. This is getting annoying.


    Edit:

    Hahaha, typical. Complain and ye shall recieve. 39th is Ancient.

    I think it would be just easier for them to balance the skills themselves and legendaries than to create gems to do the balancing for them.

    Do items / skills that proc a Frost Nova, like Halo of Arlyse, Ice Armor (Ice Reflect), or The Magistrate use a runed version of the skill if you have the skill and an unruned if you don't?



    I'm trying to decide if it'd be worth using Frost Nova or not for a cold build that uses those items, but without knowing this, I don't know.

    posted a message on Cold Wizard build?
    I think if you went for Sleet Storm rune instead of Snow Blast, you'd be fine with Winter's Flurry, but any other rune kinda does require Light of Grace for RoF.

    Unless of course you're using Blizzard and Hydra to do most of your damage?

    posted a message on Survival Legendary Gem Choice
    Do we have any idea which of the three legendary survival gems will work out best for S2?

    I'm planning on running a Thunder Crash Meteor build for Wiz (anything to not play FB), and I play on HC. So for the first two gems I was going to go for BoP and Toxin (probably unless there are better choices for the build), but I'd like a survival gem for the third.

    I've been using Moratorium, but I was wondering how it compares with the new Esoteric Alteration and Molten Wildebeest's Gizzard. I didn't play the PTR so I'm just looking for some input really.

    I'm not planning on competing on the leaderboards, so I'm only considering these with T6 in mind and only rank 25 gems just for the bonuses.
