I've had zero lag, except the occasional hitch when I port back to town and start to run when I exit the portal.
My specs are:
32 GB DDR4

Isn't the crown a guaranteed drop from Leoric in Campaign Mode at 20? If so, I would rather save those Blood Shards for other slots, since it doesn't take long to reach Leoric in Campaign Mode.
If his drop doesn't have a socket I think you can add one to it.
Legendary gems should work like the cube. You would cube both effects of the gem.
That would mean sockets would no longer be required on jewelry, which would open up more possibilities for better rings and amulets.
@Bagstone excellent post. answers some questions for me too.
Question, on jewelry, would +% elemental damage be better than main stat?
For example, if I had an amulet with 20% cold damage, CHC, CHD and a socket, would it be better to keep the 20% cold damage or change it to str?
Season will probably last 3 months, so it'll probably end around November 23rd.
I thought it was based on the legendary effect? If it isn't a class specific effect, then you can use it?
I base this on the comment made by Travis Day when he said the following, concerning the Hellskull Crusader shield.
"Hellskull increases damage while wielding a 2h weapon. That power can be used without requiring a shield to be equipped. If you want to trigger an on block effect from a power you will need a way to block or it won't be able to trigger."
Based on that is seems like that effect would work for any 2handed weapon. Though he doesn't specifically say it works that way for a Barb, so I could be wrong.
It's 3 passives at a time. One for each slot (wep, ring/ammy, armor). You can destroy as many items and store their passives in the cube but you can only have a total of 3 active at a time.
Also the powers are extracted at their max value. So if you find a Furnace with 40% damage and break it down, the power stored in the cube is 50%
While nice, I kinda wish it didn't use the max value.
The Necro won't save the game, but I will continue to play.
LOL people think playing HC in a game makes them "hardcore". Trying being a soldier in a war. Now that's hardcore.
