if you want an ARPG for hardcore go play Darksouls, Diablo was not a hardcore ARPG...not 1 or 2. They have always been about drudgery and repetition. who ever pushes the button the longest wins basically. which is why you had insanely simple bot programs that could clear all of Diablo 1 and 2 without any human need....cause it is not hardcore, it is mindless repetition....

Agreed PatriotPunk, how dare he even remotely think to play differently and have fun in a game instead of focusing purely on maximizing every single possible factor (minus the fun bit cause that doesnt matter, this is a game we are talking bout, that is serious business)

You people claiming that because money is involved so things are controlled, or that sense RMAH is there of course they control the loot drops, and the dozen other excuses you toss out for why things are how they are, you need to just stop.
Go back to a school, take a basic class on probability, hell just a basic math class teaching % chances... maybe then you will understand that killing more does not equal increased chance...
every single mob has the exact same fixed % chance to drop an item... killing 1 or killing 5000 does not change that per creature, the probability of getting an item increases based upon the number of kills but that does not lock in an item, since according to probability a diamond will instantly move 5 feet given enough time.
So please, stop shouting "its blizzards fault i get crappy loot" just cause you are too ignorant to understand the truth of the matter.
Dec 9, 2012soooo you made a post saying those posting they are quitting are more valid then those not making a post saying they are playing and / or quitting????Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
those who post saying they are quitting and then proceed to bitch and whine about the game and spout their opinions as facts are quite sad. And if you are using the excuse they are unable to be constructive so that is not their fault, then you are wrong. If they never paid enough attention in school to learn how to properly explain their positions with words then their opinions are borderline useless since they bring no possible benefit to the table, they do not contribute a single ounce to the situation.
You seem just rather eager to insult anyone that enjoys the game, or in anyway defends their opinion of the game yet support those that blindly insult and degrade the game. Makes little sense to me personally. Those that dislike the game is fine,but have an idea how to improve it, those that like the game, be honest since it does have flaws.
(And oh i am not a basement dweller, nor do i hate my life or this game... unlike you and seemingly so many others on these forums I actually have a well enjoyed life style and do not live in one extreme or another)
Aug 24, 2012Belphanoir posted a message on Easiest / least gear dependant class to farm act 3 with?with the new changes WD are actually pretty easy to gear up and farm with.. stack Int, Vit, and resists... if you can get crit/crit dmg great but can do fine without thanks to pets.. just do a summoner build with dogs and garg and you can plow thru pretty much everythingPosted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Aug 22, 2012i farm act 3 pretty easily (maybe 3-5 deaths in entire run)Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Left Click - Rain of Toads
Right click - Acid Cloud (lob blob rune)
1-zombie dogs (fire rune)
2 - Garg (bruiser rune since they no longer proc stuff)
3 - sacrifice (next of kin rune, can get 2-3 sac's before having to respawn dogs fully, really burns through the elites)
4 - Corpse spider (spider queen rune, nice dmg on her now, can fire and forget it.)
I got 650-700 resists with 37k hp and 30k dps... it is pretty easy to just plug through things with all the pets keeping the attention. When you come up on a pack you just let the dogs and garg gather them, do a few sacrifices till dogs are gone, then respawn them and dump on them with acid cloud... they die pretty quickly then.
And rain of toads works great with the whole working behind the walls from Waller units and etc... generally fun build that does great with just a little LoH and Life steal (375 LoH and 3% Life steal for me and i can tank 2-3 phase beasts np)

"Dumb game" Oh the irony and bad trolling. Just stop before we just feel sorry for you instead of laughing.Quote from Belphanoir
So you are saying Jay Wilson did nothing.. just sat around eating twinkies and staring at his starbucks waiting for it to cool?
Seriously, you people are ridiculous.. He would not have the job he has, if he just sat on his butt all day. You may think in your deluded little world that he is some shiftless lazy slob that does nothing but takes all the credit but sorry, that is not reality. I personally do not care for the guy one way or the other... Just sick of you zealots trying to find any and everything you can to try and rip into a man over a dumb game.
Just grow up
Yes, dumb game... as in not a life altering experience that should cause such hate for a human being. If you can become so hateful just because some one made a game that was not to your exact specifications then you have the problems, not them.
There is no trolling, or irony in my statement. There is utter stupidity in your stance that it is acceptable to verbally attack a man for making a game you did not like, for insulting and degrading a person just cause the game he made was not the game you wanted...
And seriously, if anyone is trolling it would be you... 7 posts, and all designed to inflame and annoy...
Jun 30, 2012Out of 20 on the friend list all of them play still... GAH items i still sell quick if it is a good item, and RMAH i steadily sell 1-3 items daily.... So yeah, i think the "decline" you perceive is that your personal friends are not there... jump into some Public games, meet people..actually talk instead of the silence that pervades them normally...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Met a few good people in publics that got added to the friends list lol

Yeah. This is what makes me really sad. Before greater rifts were even a thing I was running Well of Souls and having a complete blast. It was like playing with a soul machine gun. I was so excited to see this dagger come into play but like I said before, the dagger alone isnt enough to make the skill viable as a primary damage dealer. This is a complete shame seeing how every other Decay skill is either a must have debuff or primary damage dealer.
If spirit barrage was only included in Helltooth or something then the skill would be viable again. Think of the gameplay mechanics that would open up if Phantasm and Phlebotomize were viable skill choices. You would see WD's stacking soul aoe's on mobs or using the fire-and-forget version rune to add extra dps while channeling another skill.
MeatHead your one of the more vocal WD players on the forums. Maybe you could make a video talking about this and other under used skills so maybe Blizz can make some adjustments before the patch goes live? Voo's, as it is right now, just seems like a wasted opportunity.

It's like this. At the end of the day, he gets in his car which he's paying for, goes to the home he's paying for, and spends time with his wife and kids, whom he pays for. Deleting a comment that could have professional reprocussions was smart; saying them wasn't. Either way, why does anybody give a rats ass about this? It's like Group A Nerds having beef with Group B Nerds.
Well yeah. There's that. Personally, I'd like to see more "fuck Tim Burton" type stuff. I've never really been a fan of people having to be 'professional' when they're off the clock. It just doesn't make sense in a social media world.
But as I alluded to before (in a trolltastic way, I admit), Jay Wilson is a lightning rod for D3 hate. He's probably the only person on the design team anyone can actually name, and it always makes people feel good when someone whose decisions they don't like says something nasty or stupid... it's the same reason why the news media is obsessed with muck-raking and gaffes.
Jay Wilson's an ordinary schmuck hired to help a bunch of people tell a bigger bunch of people how to build a game they hope people will like. I hope the poor bastard is getting danger-money on top of his current salary.
