Diablo 3 Character Optimizer
D3maxstats is a site, which does perfectly what it says it does - it shows the maximum stat rolls for each item slot and helps you optimize your hero. The interface is very intuitive and you even have a few choices on how to display things. Aside from that you can also check out the other parts of the site which contain a full list of the set bonuses, special legendary item affixes and the skill proc rates of all skills.
Diablo 3 Available On PS4 At PAX East
D3's PlayStation 4 version is available for testing at PAX East and feedback so far has been more than positive. There are several pretty big improvements announced/confirmed at the convention:
- Your friends have a chance of receiving a "gift" every time you get a legendary drop
The gift is a legendary item of their own that they can open on whichever hero they want to: the stats roll upon opening the gift
- You'll be able to send items to your friends
- Nemesis System: The monster that kills you can level up, jump into a portal and appear later in a friend's game
If your friend kills it, you get "gifts", if the monster kills them, it keeps getting stronger and jumps to another game randomly chosen from your friend's friend list.
Apprentice mode: if a lower level player pairs up with a higher level player, the system boosts the lower level player's stats so that they can handle the action
You still get the exp and items on both characters (each one appropriate to their base level, slightly boosted for the lower level)
Bonus experience is given for group play
Loot is distributed to the players that have priority by stat
All loot drops for everybody, if someone picks a Dexterity item it goes to the DH, if it's a Strength item it goes to the Barbarian and so on
You get a speed boost for destroying breakables
Massacre bonuses give more experience
Killing enemies with environment gives more experience
Massacres have a chance of dropping a Nephalem Glory globe
Joebo's Pet Doctor Build
Now that pet builds are at their strongest, some very interesting ones emerge. This is the case with Joebo444's Witch Doctor build that he demonstrates in a Torment 6 Azmodan fight. It's not surprising that Azmodan is slain in 7.7 seconds - not only is the build extremely effective, but Joebo is Paragon Level 560 and makes sure he has summoned as many fetishes as possible while in town before going into battle.
