I say we ban botters and people who type boters. Both really grind my gears

Doing Necro again this season, an old friend from D2 and Lotro is playing, between him, another friend and myself we are going to take an honest shot at 3 player boards. Not sure how we will fare, but its the first time since seasons started I have dedicated friends to try stuff with. Not sure what the metas will be but we are running DH/Monk/Necro to start and we will see where that leads us.

In very limited playtime mostly solo HC I have achieved a modest mid 300s paragon. I have yet to get one focus, restraint, compass rose or traveler's pledge.
Ohh Gods of Blizzard's loot system what have I done to anger you?
I hereby do the sign of the pentagram with fresh death's breath in hopes of some set jewellery metioned above gracing my screen.
I even PL'd a second Monk on my wife's account and used that for second loots. She RIP'd at P 75 but even then with 2 characters not one piece.
Edit: This post is made in jest

The problem is your worth in this game is often judged by your paragon level. An average player with above average paragon is viewed by most as being a better player than a great player with a lower paragon. Right or wrong thats just the way it is.
Really, you need to think of single-player and multi-player D3 as two completely different games.
imho, the difference between single-player and multi-player is much greater than the difference between Softcore and Hardcore.
If you enjoy single-player (like I do), then play it. But don't look at the multi-player people and get angry that they are vastly more advanced than you. That's like a Hardcore player looking at a Softcore player who goes full glass cannon and dies a lot, and getting angry that you can't do that in Hardcore.

I see the OPs point, not so much DCs but a few hours ago Blizz's entire US servers had a massive DC, there were over 50 of us on in <Dfans>, they said about 30 or more of us go booted and I being the only one that lost a HC character in the Clan,.
This was obviously on Blizz's side, quite frankly its easy for them to see. Im not asking for my toon back, but the thing that pisses me off is its less than 24 hours in to a season, Ive been leveling that character solo for about 10 hours by myself and then the DC death. Now I have to level 2 chars back to back. I think if this was a few weeks into the season it would be a touch easier as opposed to leveling 2 in a row.
On the bright side I really wasnt feeling the Crusader, I went with that over a Monk because it seems everybody was rolling a monk and I wanted to be different a little bit.
Overall, on the case of a BLizzard side f*ck up like tonight, I think they should seriously consider reviving all of those dead HC toons. Seriously its the first Saturday night of the young season and the whole server failed, but I wouldnt ask for a revive on a death when it was just me or my connection, but when Blizz's software or hardware causes it, I think they should consider it especially so early into a promising season. While Im a touch annoyed, Im sure there are some pretty pissed of people right now.
Just my worthless 2 cents

I myself will probably do both S4 HC to start then one or the other will tickle my fancy and I will probably play that full time. I havent played either since game launch and then Crusader launch.

Im getting more and more back into D3 and am exploring other classes besides the Crusader which I currently have geared the best. You havent mentioned a follower at all.

Stand up, back away from your computer. Now spin in circles and move fifty feet at the same time you smash everything in your living room or office.
Can't do it gracefully?
That's why it's magic!

Another Justin Bieber crying emo thread, u guys are a joke, My Little Pony Adventure 9 Golden Edition awaits u..... D3 is not stuff for u.
So it looks like they will not change the stupid buff to 2 of the top tier builds for speedfarming and push (rathma, inarius)
Good move buffing useless builds but who cares if they buff that both builds aswell. So, we will change the LoN WD for an Arachyr at pushing, and the rest its literally the same.
From 96-100 rathmas to 103-106 the whole season for speed GR.
Some variety at solo maybe but another 3 months farming paragons with the same shit.
This devs jesuschrist...
Oct 22, 2017Danutsio posted a message on Best builds for solo GR in Season 12 (patch 2.6.1) ?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
There's multiple builds that can clear really high solo GR for next patch with all the buffs. Many can do 110+ with decent para. As for the "highest" it's hard to know. Cause the ptr has undergone many iterations this time round, with multiple ptr leader board wipes and such. A strong contender will probs still be bloodlance necro which can do like 118s right? It's hard to fully compare where everything lines up because not everyone has the time to properly push on ptr, or maybe they don't even want to show the build cause they have some secret strat. The highest I have seen is a Korean streamer attempting a 127 with dmo wiz. He was close to downing the rift with almost enough time to kill the rg. Keep in mind he has 5.5kpara, 9mil sheet dmg, and he's Korean. With his para and skillset he'd probs push levels beyond the rest of us mere mortals with any build he focused on
Edit: I misread and thought you wrote "best build" singular, not plural haha. Oh well I'll let my reply stand as is.
Mar 31, 2017magiuks posted a message on Blizzard is ramping up efforts, yet another Banwave on US ServersPosted in: Diablo III General DiscussionLets say you have an item with +7% atkspeed, 8,5% crit and 250 mainstat
and an item with 20% Areadmg, 35% critdmg and 12% skilldmg. How do you
know which one brings you more overall?
You don't, because you can't calculate AD in overall damage.

One of the Conquests is Master 8 set dungeons

UE grenades ended up in the top 10 clears (GR100) so yes, of course it's viable.
(Or just log in to KR realm and check DH S9 leaderboards, but I'm sure in other regions there are others who have done the same.)
Also, I moved the topic to DH forums and change the title to something more appropriate and less generic.
Jan 7, 2017StarliteLemming posted a message on Sprinter Guide v3.0 released (with heaps of improvements)Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I've just uploaded a new version of my Guides to the Sprinter and Speed Racer Conquests.
What is the Sprinter Guide?
A detailed, printable guide that gives you all you need to know -- right when you need it -- to smash the Sprinter and Speed Racer conquests.
What's in the Sprinter Guide?
There are five main sections:
- Introductory Notes -- (including explanations of how to understand and use the Guides, and tips for builds, tricky maps, etc)
- Town Camper Guide -- (detailed enough that even a monkey wouldn't mess it up)
- Runner Guide -- (including maps and strategies for division of labour)
- Concise Runner Guide -- (just the essentials, for quick reference during a run)
- Time Record -- (to help analyse what went wrong, and for posterity)
The Introductory Notes include separate sections for Runners, the Town Camper, and Everyone.
Do I Need to Read the Whole Sprinter Guide?
You can skip straight to the Guide you'll need during the run. The Town Camper should print the Town Camper Guide and the Time Record. Runners should print just the Concise Runner Guide. Everyone should skim read some of the Notes, to make sure they understand the Guides, and to pick up any Tips they may not have seen.
Where Can I Download the Sprinter Guide?
The quick link is goo.gl/dsru6o (mouse over the link to see the full destination).
You can download the whole guide (and just print the bits you need), or download the individual sections.
I apologise about the two extra clicks for the larger files -- free web hosts...
What's Changed Since Version 2 of the Sprinter Guide?
- A whole new section: The Concise Runner Guide. Much easier to use during gameplay than the full version.
- Captions on all the maps.
- Visual directions for three maps in Act 5 (with proper maps planned).
- Contents table showing the different parts of the guide. (You only need to print the bit you'll be using.)
- Clearer layout of the Notes (with corrections and clarifications).
- Each section now has its own page number prefix, from A to E.
- Corrections and other adjustments, based on experience running the conquest a few more times.
- Updated target times for Act 3.
What's Next for the Sprinter Guide?
I have some ideas, and some feedback to address. This includes (in rough order of priority):
- Adding stylised maps for Act 5, to replace the coloured arrows.
- Using GameFAQs to host the files, so every download link is direct.
- Rearranging the sections, moving the heavy text to the end.
- Adding more icons (like the speech-bubble icon that means "talk"), especially to the older parts of the guide.
- Adding more colour cues to the Town Camper Guide.
- Using more headings in the Notes, so specific information is quicker to find.
- CSS overhaul of my website (it'll never happen: too boring).
Items 1 to 3 are likely to happen during Season 9. Beyond that, I'll tackle things based on feedback and enthusiasm. So let me know if you like or dislike these ideas (politely), or if you can think of better solutions.
Before any of that, I need to finish off the patch 2.4.3 version of my Kanai's Cube Checklist (possibly tomorrow).
May 13, 2016Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Rings and amulets can be surprisingly difficult to come by, as they have higher BS costs (from Kad) and large pools of potential rolls (which affects everything from drops to Kad and even Cube); this isn't made any easier by the fact that the vast majority of rings are universal (meaning they are common for any given class). My advice is to focus on upgrading everything else first (via Kad/Cube) and just keep hoping they will drop in the meantime.
May 5, 2016Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I am baffled by the fact that you took the time to write that. Your hero doesn't fit the group meta. Is that really a big deal? How you made the mental leap between you voluntarily playing a build in a setting that makes it boring and Blizzard as a whole being incompetent, I will never know.
I've been lurking on this site since it started and I've seen a lot of pointless posts full of misdirected anger and accusations but this is one really takes the cake. I mean really, do you have deep and intimate connections with the barbarian class that warrants blanket negative generalizations of an entire company that you need to share so that I can understand the depths of your irrational rage?
It is a game. Just a game. One that has probably already yielded you more hours of entertainment per dollar spent than almost any other activity in your entire lifetime. Is there really that much to complain about, much less be enraged over?
You are free to roll a class or build that fits the current group meta, play alone and enjoy yourself, or even play a different game. Whatever you do, realize that your silly posts here or anywhere elseand won't change anything. You are just keeping yourself upset by trying to put a square peg in a round hole and then calling people names when it doesn't work. Stressing out over this and posting angry rants is literally bad for your well being. Not worth. Good luck finding emotional peace in your Diablo journey.
