Following some of the changes from 1.05 as of the PTR test, and I'm noticing that they're lowering ability procs for Wizard spells yet AGAIN. If they don't like us doing Critical Builds, just say so, damnit.

That said, I'm liking some of the (red-shaded) DH changes, oh yes.

You shouldn't bother with MP unless you can already do act 3.

Mp2/3 = 1.04 only applies to act 3 because MP would increase monsters to 63 in act 1 and act 2. My wizard that has it fairly easy in Act 1 1.04 took forever to kill some white mobs in MP1 Act 1. :S

Also, meteor is as crappy as ever. >.>

It's also at this point I realize that the Blizzard spell is a buff with the less arcane cost, even if Snowbound doesn't change (still reduce to 20 AP). That's because Snowbound isn't really that great if you're using Blizzard to begin with-- it's not even spammable; the increase range rune can get more damage done because inferno enemies will get out of the small blizzards anyways. And the large area will benefit from the CC buffs we will get.

ah poor sad sad diablo 3.

I had such great hopes for you. I played 2 to death many a times. I'm sure every year I re-installed and play for a good 3 months pretty constant.

Diablo 3 just didnt' do it for me. Who knows maybe in some gaming dry spell I might play it again, but otherwise its just missing something. I don't know what it is, but I would almost be more willing to pop in diablo 2 than 3 right now.

1.05 Patch note

New Infernal Machine System

Gonna fire up the game this weekend. I guess it's time to take a break from XCOM.

Well, I reinstalled for w/e reason, and lol who tested this?

Images
Sorry; dynamic content not loaded. Reload?

Although this is probably worse...

In all seriousness though, this is actually a really good patch (You never thought you'd hear this from me?) with the difficulty settings and the drops. The infernal thing is a d2 rehash, but it allows the itemization to actually be available to everyone while the dedicated gamers tackle the hardest contents and just have a better chance at the godly gear.

The Monk and Enchantress nerf was not welcome and they really should be ashamed of themselves. If you use an enchantress, pick the missile ward-- 6% reduction against ranged attacks is quite a lot.

In any case, we might be out of the beta testing period, though pvp is nowhere to be seen. As for me personally, 37k dps holds up to like Mp4, after that I'm back to June 2012 spending 15 minutes trying to kill anything.

It just took Blizzard 8+ months to institute pvp hurrrrr.

On the other hand, at least it's dueling and not arena bullshit.

The Wizard/Monk buffs are highly needed as most Monk spenders are trash and wizard skills don't revolve around CM CM CM CM CM FN are shit too.

Crafting needs to be useful....

MP in public games... well YOU FOOLS SHOULD HAVE DONE THAT IN THE FIRST PLACE.

RD change is solid. And plagued is too weak, while molten is too powerful.

Overall, a good patch, but this is more like what the game should have been at release. The thread's lack of activity is just merely one of the results of Blizzard's initial negligence.

Still I guess it's kinda funny looking back at this thread especially since I have more than twice the dps since I last posted.

So my brother finally got his account unlocked and played it for the first time. His only character, a female Demon Hunter, was left at level 60 with a Paragon level of 34, with somewhere in the neighborhood of 3 million gold and a number of uniques, including some two-handed sword meant for a monk, of all things.

Gotta love them Asian vandals. :V

Where the hell did you come from? Well, you can take it in stride, though I was referring to Reflect Damage which is annoying to pretty much every ranged character.

And yes, scams are running around and you should avoid clicking any email links.

From what I understand my brother was actually hacked the hard way and not scammed out of it, though I could be remembering it wrong. Nice of whoever did so to strengthen his character and NOT totally clean him out, though.

They used his acct for botting, grind some easy area repeatedly and gain plvls like that.

However, I'd imagine they'd get even higher than that, so it must be a pretty shitty bot if it was going 24/7

Tempest rush monks are pretty efficient farmers.

Snapshot monks can destroy mp8 with minimal investment: i actually consider snapshot monks to be more powerful farmers than archon wizards (but is a lot cheaper to gear).

Might be worth going though the hour of trouble of unlocking my damn account (again) when it comes out.

Tempest Rush is a decent skill, I admit but that requires a huge investment since the skill itself doesn't have a high weapon damage modifier. Though when it comes to low MPs, it seems pretty damn impeccable.

Snapshotting is a pretty big exploit if we're talking about swapping to the highest dps set and then switching away since it's actively letting the build double dip-- you can just swap a bunch of glass cannon gear (Sup Skorn), and then go back to your normal gear and enjoy the benefits of all of it. Not saying it's wrong to abuse it, but the mechanic is broken, and in the end while most monks abuse it to a lesser degree it just shows how many are dependent on sweeping wind. In the end, this is still all thanks to gear , though that's just a fundamental issue with the game.

Mind you, this kind of stuff just helps me, since my Monk only does 78k dps unbuffed but since she uses a shield, has 1 mil ehp. So giving myself a ton of dps arbitrarily would just be a boon.

Edit: And when the hell did you get to pvl 65 all of a sudden? Good work.

Nothing. I just had better things to do then login into diablo, and their password recovery system is just as good as their error 37.

Yeah a handful of friends and I started playing again at the start of the year for stupid reasons.

SS monks getting patched
time to cash out my +20% IAS dagger


I am kind of looking forward to the new patch: higher MP will be a little more meaningful for leveling

They need to boost the MF too though. EXP is just leading to better MF and will be pointless once paragon gets high enough.

Gold Find isn't necessary to follow though... that stuff is getting quite inflated.

In other news, I logged on and found some low end items getting more expensive. Economy is bouncing back a little, lol.
