    Yeah, thanks, Bagstone. That makes total sense now that I think about it. The Armory is just a QOL thing that all players should enjoy whereas a new class should obviously be paid content.

    You got to be kidding me... oh well.

    Yeah, I don't know if you checked out the BlizzCon streams, but my understanding is that the Armory feature is being released in conjunction with the Necromancer expansion. I'm pretty sure they were clear about that.

    That does look like an interesting build.

    If only paralysis was at least 25%.

    I do not know what the proc rate of Paralysis is, but 25% would undoubtedly make the massive damage from Manald Heal broken.

    posted a message on Season 9 and a break from the norm

    Hey everyone - just wanted to post my two cents on some things. We all want powerful toons. We all want to play efficiently and get the most bang for our buck - timewise. How many threads do we all see titled - what's the new meta? Help me decide what build to play, etc. etc. I am totally guilty of going the cookie cutter route myself in several seasons. But, this season I am opting to trying a build I have never done before --


    http://ptr.d3planner.com/190655006


    I saw the guy post a video from the 2.4.3 PTR and he cleared an 89, so obviously the build is viable. But, I mention this deviation in thinking only because I encourage others to just do whatever the hell you want to do. Be different. Be creative. So you do not get in the top 100. So what? We are not playing for money. There are no prizes. It's a game. I play with friends who do the same thing every season - same build and class. Does it matter? Of course not. They have fun doing that and that is most important. But, what I am hoping to gain by forcing myself out of my own comfort zone (I always play Monks - be it EP, tanking, or WOL) is to become a better player. I'll have to adapt with this wizard build. I do not play wizards, so this should be interesting.


    Good luck in season 9 whatever you end up doing.

    The Diablo 1 dungeon goes live with 2.4.3, correct? And that will happen before season 9 on January 6th?

    Legendary gems on followers do NOT work, correct? A clanmate is telling me she is seeing gold explosions with the Boon of the Hoarder equipped on her follower, but I thought it was not possible.

    posted a message on Thorns Crusader: Full Invoker vs Invoker/Akkhan mix

    Hey everyone. For season 9 I am thinking of doing a Thorns Crusader since I have not done one since S5 when Invoker was last offered as a freebie set. I really enjoyed the build - very simple, effective, and still incredibly tough. The question is - has anyone done extensive testing on if a hybrid of 2 pieces of Invoker + full Akkhans might be better for a thorns build? Thanks.

    posted a message on No Reason to be Mad

    The thing is - there is the potential at least to make D3 a viable esport via top shelf pvp. I watched some amazing finals of WoW last weekend in 3v3 arena. It was damn exciting to watch. Blizz would have to really do serious balancing for D3 pvp, but why not? That winning WoW team got $120k. Amazing.

    posted a message on Once more unto the breach

    If things like GR leaderboards exist in a D4, then we all have to play under the exact same game - i.e. a Blizzard only game with no mods. You cannot have Joe Blow using mod A and Sam Smith using mod B where their mods have various changes to core gameplay and expect them to both be on the same leaderboard.

    posted a message on New Class DLC - Necro just the beginning?

    I cannot believe you guys are moaning about cost of the future DLC. $10 or $15 is fine while $40 is too much? Why? What is the reasoning there? How much do you spend on a night out with your special someone - movie, dinner. How much did that set you back and how many hours of entertainment did you get?

    Quote from wilmarein»

    I wish auction house would come back, because only a game that earns money gets attention from Blizzard. Yeah the old AH was cancer, but there has to be a better way of implementing it.

    Part of me agrees. But, a big part of me disagrees because if you can just spend real money to get mats and gear, then it will create a lot of resentment with players who put in the time to grind. Maybe they could do something similar to Rift and make the very highest tier of gear tied to dungeon instances and raids that would be soul bound.

    posted a message on New Diablo Pet

    Yeah, my only issue with the new Diablo pet when I first broke it out was it roared incessantly. If it roared every 30 sec or something - perfect, but it's constant. So, in town where it's quiet that's all you hear as you're crafting or gambling.

    posted a message on Which class will you use to start Season 8?

    Wave of Light Monk to start - he's one the best farmers there is. He'll get the tanking gear I will need later to help push my clan members higher and to do public groups. For solo pushing I'll probably do a HOTA Barb.
