Why are ppl so fixated on PvP anyways? I mean, so many great games that are pure PvP and you want it in D3 too?
Nemesis? Sure, but only on SC. HC has enough enemies already, with lags, dcs, rubberbanding and so on. Nemesis on HC would make it way too frustrating. Or we would just purge our friend lists lol.
I hope you won't mind if I tell you what I would change.
First of all, there are few combinations of gear that I would use.
Go for 6pc WotW set, replace RoRG in cube for Obsidian ring of the Zodiac.
Use Witching Hour as belt, or Lamentation, since you use rend as one of your skills.
Use Lacuni Prowlers as bracers or Strongarms with FC to proc them. Also, FC will replenish your rage whenever you charge into group of mobs.
Roll CDR on both weapons and use diamond in helmet. Will get huge boost to CDR that way and WotB will be on almost 100% of time.
Find new Skull Grasp since it is multiplicative now, compared to old ones that were additive damage only.
Make HF amulet that has passive you need for this build, and those are:
BTW if your belt does not have life per fury, nor your weapons have it, there is no point in using Bloodthirst at all.
Keep RoRG in cube, and use Hexing pants of Mr Yan to get 25% more damage when moving and 20% reduced fury cost.
Rest is pretty much the same.
About L gems. You might wanna check out how bane of the powerful works now, since it gives you + damage to elites and reduces damage you suffer from them, too. Also, you can use SoJ as one of your rings, and get Skull Grasp in cube. With Bane of the Powerful and furnace, you would have 50+30+15=95% damage to elites lol.
I dont say this what I wrote here is best thing ever, but I think it might help you get to at least grift 70.
Yeah, s4 less than 5 days and it sucked ass. I played that build, and it was not good + we lagged like hell even on grift 60.
With few of my friends.. 4 dps as 1x 700, 2x 600 and 1x 400 para DPS team on the 9th day of the season, grift 75. We had 3 IK/Rae barbs and one UE DH lol.Quote from udomsa33
I sometimes wonder what it would be like if all 4 peeps go all out on DPS build with no support. How far could they go? XD
Damn, you should have it underlined and in italic, too, this is way too minimalistic for me to comprehend lol.
Anyways, as I said, you can always use it in NS at some point, if you don't melt it or sell it to that loli vendor @ act 2
Well why should ppl not be hunting transmogs, wings, pets and penants? Its fun to do it, between long hours of grifts and key farming. Also, bounties are much more fun when you know you can find something else, even if that is just a damn pet that has no other purpose but to make you rage. I would stomp that "Lamb" boy and kill him with fire and magnets. So damn annoying pet lol.
How is this true? I talk about bold italic underlined orange stuff.
NS lets you play mindlessly without that "impending doom" of the upcoming season ending. If you play season only (and regard non-season as useless), any progress you make this season will be gone in 3 months from now. Anything becomes a "short sprint", that super awesome GG amulet you just got will be useless in a few weeks. NS is much closer to my understanding of the "RPG" part in an ARPG like Diablo, where I'm seeking to constantly make my character stronger.
I never liked seasons in D3, nor ladders in D2. But in both games I've been pushed to it because Blizzard decided to make certain things exclusive to a particular game mode (rune words in D2, stash tab in D3). Also, the constant nudging of players to move into season mode has moved my friends list to seasons, and I don't like to play alone. But ever since I moved to seasonal game play rather than NS (about half a year ago) I find myself less motivated to play. I've quit both S4 and S6 after 2 weeks/2 days, respectively. Before I was considering seasons/ladders, I was playing Diablo non-stop both in D2 and D3, and although I oftentimes took breaks, I liked that I could come back to my powerful character and take on more adventures with him.
I must say you are doing something wrong. To get only 400 paragons in 90 days, do you play more than 15 minutes per day?
i for 1 am burned out.. granted i'm only paragon 130 but going nowhere fast ... d3 has lost it's way.
at first it was fun now all it is is pushing grifts where is the fun in that by the time the season is done i get to 400 max then a new patch comes out
can i please get more out of this game or a new diablo game
You can buy dyes until you spend all gold. Its also time consuming process if you decide to spend it on winter dyes.
If you find that not challenging enough, you can spend your gold on rare shield collection. I would say that Bastion's Keep has great vendors for this cause, but if you want to be mainstream, New Tristram is also ok.
If you dislike these methods, try empowering grift 90+ to upgrade lvl 0 gems. It is true fun to spend 600 000 000+ gold like this. And it takes only 5 grifts to get your legendary gem to lvl 20 this way, for more than 3 000 000 000 gold!
Fun is guaranteed.
I last from day 1 to day N, where N is the last day in the season. Sometimes, I miss a day or two if under a pressure at work.
Hey there guys,
I've been having this conversation with several friends, who, after a few weeks into the season, get completely bored about the game. They ( and myself at some point ) just stop having fun because it becomes, too much.
So my question is, how long do you " last " in a season ? what keeps you going ? is it the passion for the game ? something else ?
Please share your thoughts.
Since you have over 30k+ elites killed on your profile with under 300 paragons on PC, I would say you played D3V for some time. That is why I fail to understand how can you be bored of 2.4.1 state of the game compared to vanila game.
I have spent years loving this series. Diablo has taken up a lot of my time over the years and I have enjoyed many a night battling in Sanctuary. The game as it currently stands has however gotten very stale for me. 2.4.0-2.4.1 brought little change. cosmetics are nice and all but not really a substitute for content. Once you hit end game all there is to do is push gr's and grind paragon. Item Upgrades come few and far between so basically all you are doing is lvling gems for augmenting and I personally am bored to death with D3 something I didn't think I would ever say. This game for me is currently on life support and without an expansion/new content/ new game whatever will soon be dead. The feeling of getting a "uber" drop just isn't there anymore and to me thats what Diablo was all about, now I can usually gear a char in a day or two with little effort. The "Birthday" announcement made me realize just how boring this game has become.
I am sad that Wudijo was banned, but I agree with what you wrote.
WotW is not weak. I tested it and did 75 in first try with almost no caldesann gear upgrades. Had almost 3 minutes to spare, too.
Still half the sets in the game are garbage. I loved how mid season 5 they busted out this patch to buff under performing sets, that made me super happy but then....Basically nothing was changed. IK is only useful as ahybrid, WotW too weak, reakor also hybrid. So one good barb set. For sader, Throns again works zzzzzzzzzz rolands to weak, akkhans WAY to weak, hammers also to weak so 1 good set. Monks, INnas again, zzzzzzz SWK needs to have a total redesign from that sweeping wind bullshit, period. Ulis to weak and squishy same with storm. Wiz If tals wont proc etched sigil its worthless. so...DMO again zzzzzzzzz firebird and vyrs only as hybrids so. Get the picture?
TLDR: Seems to be only one set for at least, monk, barb, sader, wiz that are worth a fuck by itself
Yeah, this is so true. If you don't want ancient gear, caldesann upgraded gear, enough paragons to enter leaderboards and so on. For those that play this for competition, d3 is not casual at all. BTW I don't speak for myself, I'm pretty average.
D3 isn't about the journey like Titan Quest or most ARPGs were. The game starts at max level and when you have enough gear to make a specific playstyle work at least on the max non GR difficulty level, or T8 for people who play season at the start.
They also said that "D3 is a game you play for a few weeks at the start of a season, and then put aside until next season". Blizzard is making casual games, good casual games, but casual nonetheless, so it's pretty normal for them to adopt this philosophy.
And so, giving away free pieces of gear like candy seems to be what you'd expect, at this point. D3 is more like a monster killing simulator than an ARPG really. Even though ARPGs ARE about killing monsters, there's a big emphasis on character building, not so much in D3.
tl;dr free sets is ok considering Blizzard's casual philosophy.
I would be glad to see that 60% gem upgrade chance don't stay 10% as it is now
Urshi won't bore us anymore? QoL level +1
So, taeguk is useless now for almost every build. Cool move.
Ppl cried how bad it was to lose stacks, now many builds are forced into esoteric alteration/mutilation guard loosing damage they had from taeguk... RIP taeguk
