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
980 Ti 6 GB
60 Meg Internet with pings in the 50-90 range
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.
@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.
So, I ended up adding the gift to my Ancient Golden Flense and switched over to my 6 piece Roland's gear and a Shield Bash build. Loving it!
I haven't had a chance to try a GRift yet, but for normal Rifts/Bounties I went from 25-30 million crits to 400+ million - 1.4+ billion crits. Such a huge upgrade!
Still need to optimize most gear, but it's a start.
Here's by updated B.net profile: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Cavar-1862/hero/43736705
So roll the 10% back to a socket. It will still be better than than your FotF because 1. It will still have 200 something DPS higher and 2. It's ancient(so has a lot more Str and it even has LoH, something you'll need in higher rifts. Rolling back to a socket, it's barely worse than my Warmonger and I can do upper 40's.
If you have a RoRG go ahead and use it until you get your 6th piece of Roalnd's, you'll be clearing 40's in no time.
So, do you think changing the 10% back to a socket and the fact that's it's an ancient would make up for the loss of the 2 extra beams from Heaven's Fury? I think each of those extra beams do the un-runed skill damage of 1710% over 6 seconds, right?
If nothing else, I guess I can try it tonight.
Well, I've already rolled off something for 10% damage, which means I'd have to apply a gift, which you recommended I not do.
If I had 5-10 gifts I wouldn't hesitate to use one, but this is only the 3rd once I've ever found, so I really only want to use them on a great weapon.
Thanks. Roland's is actually the direction I want to go. So far I have 5 pieces of Rolands, but only 2 or 3 are ancient. I also have the Drakon's bracer, too.
Never seen a Furnace drop and had only 1 or 2 non-ancient Blood Brother's drop. Getting a decent weapon is proving to be the hardest thing.
I got 2 over the weekend, this being the best one...
I'll probably never use it though, since I'm after either an ancient Fate of the Fell or Mortal Drama, which I can't find to save my life.
Nice Furnace. I wish I had the RNG to have one drop, but alas, I don't.
Anyways, in case you're interest, here's a post to a re-roll calculator that's super easy to use.
Currently I am running a build that utilizes Fist of the Heavens and Heaven's Fury, see below...
...but, try as I might, I can't seem to get an ancient Fate of the Fell to drop, let alone some other ancient 2-handed flail, like The Mortal Drama, so I can try another build.
Currently I can breeze through T6, but can't break GRift level 29. I know my gear isn't optimized, mainly to only recently playing my Crusader again, but I was wondering about switching to an ancient 2-handed instead of sticking with my current Fate of the Fell.
What I have in my vault is...
Arthef's Spark of Life
I rolled the old socket into 10% damage and have a single gift I could apply to it, but I was curious if losing the 2 additional rays of Heaven's Fury would be worth the dps increase the Spark would give me, even though it has a "meh" legendary effect?
Comparing the weapons without the emerald in the FotF, I would gain 17% damage, 1.2% toughness and 219% recovery.
My gut is telling me to swap to the Spark and hope I get an Ancient FotF, Mortal Drama or Furnace to drop, but I really hate wasting a gift, especially since I've only seen 3 drop since season 2 started, whenever that was.
Anyways, your input would be appreciated.
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.
