May 14, 2013Rhye posted a message on Addressing Security Issues, AH Exploits Still Under Review, Preparing for D3's First Anniversary, ZzEzZ's Proc Coefficient List,I find it hilarious that they celebrate the games first year live, and at the same time talk about security issues and AH exploits. That's something they should have been done with 1 month into the game. Also, I really thought we'd have some kind of random dungeon generator or custom maps by now. Maybe some kind of survival mode or a few more uberbosses.Posted in: News & Announcements
Nono, it's all about "finding players near you" and "now you can have a message next to your name to broadcast to all your friends". Stop making this game into facebook and give us some content
May 10, 2013Group is by far better for reasons already stated, but also because in a group you'll farm more intensely. That is my experience at least. Everyone wants NOT to be the one holding the group back and will therefore avoid going afk, spend time on AH in between runs, etc. When I solo I tend to lose focus which in turn will nerf my xp gain.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

If you don't even need all your fingers to count up to your rank I hardly think there is a need for a search function. Diabloprogress is a unnecessary poison for this game that enforces players to both pay and compete for the absolute wrong reasons, had to be said.
I have no problem understanding where you are coming from. I understand that this may "force" people into feeling that they have to pay to win. But you don't have to. I sure didn't. Not a dime has left my credit card. And believe me: my motivation for playing doesn't come from "how high is my ranking". I love to smash monsters, just like everyone else. Also, if I was rank-addicted I would have gone for DPS ranking. But 450k ub monks are unplayable at MP10 (in my eyes). And MP10 is where the fun stuff happens
No reason for such a list? I just want to see the top 100 or so to see how players evolve and to see what's going on. I can see that now as well, but I would have to search manually since there are a lot of shield wearers. The "need" is in the eye of the beholder.
Apr 18, 2013Hello there!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I've recently found myself in the top 10 list on diabloprogress (pvp dummy, which is eHP and DPS combined) and I'm kinda proud of that to be honest. Pride is relative ofc., it's only a game, but still...
Now, my question is this. There are only 2-3 in the top 10 that dual wield. The others use shields. I would like to know if there are rankings like this where you can add "dual wield" as a search option to weed out the shield wearers. Is there such a thing? Are there other sites like diabloprogress?
Thanks in advance!
Top 20 EU monks ranked by PvP dummy. I'm Neph btw
Mar 1, 2013I would start by upgrading the other ring. Your Hellfire Ring is not worth using in my opinion. Use it when you want to grind out Paragon levels, but find a ring with crit chance. You will most likely lose some dex and some average dmg, but there are some very nice rings out there for your budget.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
I would also suggest that you use Mantra of Conviction: Overawe instead of Mantra of Retribution. It's one of our best skills and using anything else is a dps downgrade.
Echoing Fury may increase your character sheet dps, but when you run after a feared mob, you aren't doing dps. Those on the top 10 on the dps rankings use Echoing Fury, but those of us that use weapons with no fear-proc will do more damage since the mobs are standing in our Sweeping Wind aoe.
Jan 18, 2013I've got 15k Flawless Square Rubies/Emeralds on my "bank alts". Just waiting for the patch to go live. I couldn't care less about the extra 4 dex on each gem. I look forward to cash in my gems and go nuts on the AH.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Hopefully the increased prices on Radient gems will increase the price on Flawless Square gems as well
Account bound gems? Sure. Fine. Account bound crafted gear however? Not fine. A part of the thrill of crafting is the chance to get something to sell (if you can't use it yourself). Gems that cost THIS much if just for bragging rights. I know I won't craft them for myself right away, but maybe further down the line.

Aug 25, 2013larsevss posted a message on The Massive Expansion Recap - Everything We Know So FarThree more things they didn't mention in the massive recap:Posted in: News & Announcements
1, Crusader is the only new class in expansion. Josh:"There is no second class"
2, There won't be new PvP content in the expansion but may have as future patch to the expansion.
3, No teleport between ACTs
Aug 21, 2013With the introduction to the new expansion, we all know that Maltheal is alive. Now, I doubt he has retained his role of Wisdom but looks to have potentially gained some new powers. If they are new, we don't know. For his way of combat have not been recorded for us to confirm. However, it is rampant speculation that Maltheal has taken up the mantle of Death. I do not believe this is true.Posted in: Lore & Storyline
Why don't I find this true? Well the first part is the name of the Expansion, Reaper of Souls. While Death does reap souls, he is not the only one. Death has given the power of reaping to his minions so that he doesn't always has to do the job. And I feel Maltheal is in that position. He is not Death, but in fact a lieutenant or general of the real Death. Absurd, I know. An Archangel becoming a minion of someone else? Wont happen! But I feel it did.
Even if you don't agree, hear me out. So why would Wisdom fall and instead becoming a minion? And who would be able to take up the role of Death if not Maltheal? Well, the later I will start first and it will lead to why I believe Wisdom fell. But who could be Death if not Maltheal? I'm glad you asked. I believe it is Tathamet.
WHAT? HOW? WHY? I know, I know. Also seems absurd. However, I will point back to the prophecy of the End of Days.
I feel the prophecy has actually not been fulfilled yet. I will argue that Valor has not turned to Wrath, but instead was consumed by Pride when he ignored help and denounced Tyreal. And Fate, is currently not shattered. Sure he can't see the future of the Nephalem, and I doubt he could see Maltheal falling, but what is the one thing that could cause Fate to be shattered forever? The rise of Tathamet. Which is where my second point lies. In the Book of Cain, it is said,And, at the End of Days, Wisdom shall be lost
as Justice falls upon the world of men.
Valor shall turn to Wrath
and all Hope will be swallowed by Despair.
Death, at last, shall spread its wings over all
as Fate lies shattered forever.
Sure, the term is ambiguous, but it fits. A dragon, based on most of our own lore, has wings. But it also explains why Maltheal took the Black Soulstone. Because Tathamet needs it. Because Tathamet is actually not dead.the Dragon, Tathament was his name - and he breathed unending death and darkness from his seven devouring heads.
Tathamet not dieing would mean that there is a being more powerful than any in the plane of Creation. But he was not, because the Lords of Hell were his power. So he was weakened, so even Wisdom should have been able to kill him. However, I feel Maltheal was also weakened. It was said that his mood was darkening before he left. I think he found something. Something that proved that Tathamet was alive. And Anu was in fact, dead. The savior of the Angels, Anu. Learning that his greatest feat had in fact never happened would seem to be a crushin blow to Wisdom. Someone who is supposed to know many things would start to question if one thing was false, how many other things are false as well. So we went to search for Tathamet after the destruction of the Worldstone and had in fact found him. Just the confirmation of him being alive shattered Maltheal, allowing Tathamet to corrupt him and use him.
Why would he need Maltheal? Well, Tathamet probably wants to still act in the shadows. Plus with using a corrupted Archangel, it would be hard press for another angel to even defeat him, as we saw in the cinematic. And Maltheal would be able to locate the location for the Black Soulstone and take it. As I have said, Tathamet it weaked. And while theory would say that Tathamet should of been born right when all Lords of Hell entered the stone, he was not. Tathamet wasn't just a name for all of the power combined, it was also a name for the controling personality. The one creature that was only given the name of Dragon. The one creature that no one knows nothing about and could easily be described as Death.
As someone pointed out, how could Maltheal find the Black Soulstone, especially so fast? I believe that Tathamet was the one that told him. Not that Tathamet knew the location before Tyreal and the Horadrim decided on it but that Tathamet can sense the power from it like someone knows where their arm is. That power, the Lords of Hell, are a part of Tathamet so the ability to find where it is does not seem unbelievable. And so I think Tathamet knew that it was going to be placed in Sactuary, probably general location due to the travel to the location was going to be long, so he had Maltheal follow the Stone to where we see in the Cinematic and then we get what we saw.
Thanks you for reading my speculation. If you have any opinions or maybe want to add further, please do so. I look forward to the Reaper of Souls and learning more about what is to come in the Future of Sanctuary.

Jun 15, 2013Artemix posted a message on Itemization patch won't happen until November (confirmed)I'm disappointed that I'm not disappointed.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
What's the worst that can happen:
they waste several months to release an "itemization fix" patch but they do all the work behind closed doors. They release it, it sucks, and we have to wait for another year to have something semi-decent that comes mostly of players justified rage posts in their forums.
Btw, knowing how Blizzard works, "certainly not before Blizzcon" in my mind translates to June+ 2014.

There's still hope for this game.And remember guys whenever we think about diablo 2's awesome moments,we actually think about D2:LOD not the original one.
If this guy really does what he says and the expansion comes with new features.............then this game will be the best diablo game ever.
Cos right now the only feature that is good about diablo 3 is the uninstall feature.
I used it months ago and loving the benefits of this feature.
And yet here you are, following every piece of news about this terrible game.
Well checking diablofans.com once every day takes only seconds to check the news whether it be another cosplay/art/etc or some real news.
Unless you are real lazy of course.
Just because i've uninstalled a game doesn't mean i can't hope for it to be good
Jun 5, 2013I really hated this write up. I'm excited about what's to come, but it's just SO. MUCH. FLUFF. Ah, well, here's to a future where the average legendary drop doesn't make you suicidal.Posted in: News & Announcements
May 18, 2013Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from 0mn1bl4d3
the whole reason why i even put in all this time into this game was because there was money involved.
And that's exactly why you're disappointed.
The problem is you, not the price of gold.
It's also magnificantally ironic that someone who admits he/she was only playing the game to make money had NOT ONE FUCKING CLUE as to what gold was actually worth. It'd seem to me, if you wanted to make money on D3, that would be one of the most basic things you'd need to know.
Apr 26, 2013Hey does anyone else try and keep all of the items in their inventory glowing yellow after identifying them? I do, and I will sure as hell miss it when I can't be stuffed identifying them all and just use the identify all feature!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Apr 16, 2013I think the reason so many people are upset is that the game didn't require any changes in 2008, the game as presented to us in the very first teaser video was pretty much exactly what we wanted D3 to be.Posted in: News & Announcements
Slowly, patch by patch, the game is returning back to the state it was in back in 2008.
