In other news I finally got to act 3 Inferno after spending 10 million (and still wasnt able to replace all of my crap items). Since so many said act 3 is so much easier than act 2, I was really happy to have the worst behind me. Only to die 20 times on my first few steps in act 3. "Most annoying mobs are in act 2" my ass. These fucking flying suckers that shoot fireballs and kill in one hit up close and the fallen that get resurrected right beside me only to kill my 550 resistance ass in 2 hits are the most annoying things Ive ever encountered. I really cant imagine how much I will hate this game once I get to the centipede arm guys... (yeah yeah, Im bad with names).

FWIW, Congrats on making it to Act 3 Inferno. Gonna attempt tackling Zoltun Khuul's tower tonight. Later on, not looking forward to the first stage of the Act2 boss with his adds....that should be a disaster.

Worked the first try for me, since I was lucky to have a good tank in my group, and enough DPS to kill them very quickly. After that it was a breeze.

Completed the first 2 quests in act 3 now too (again, thanks to a good tank), but as soon as we entered the dungeons it was GG on the first elite pack (after 5 secs), because there was no way we could skip them, because after them there was another very bad combo one. Especially in these tight quarters I wonder how I will ever complete it, because elite packs were extremely hard with lots of space already, some still impossible.

What's "IAS"?

edit: increased attack speed modifier

TBF it was absurdly OP compared to other buffs, though so much so that it really should have made it to release. Also, they might want to consider if they need to counteract nerfs by buffing other, uh, buffs.

Even that nerf changed nothing about the fact that some items are absolutely worthless without IAS, because IAS is still the most powerful stat, that everyone wants.
When will they learn that they also need to buff other stuff when they nerf one thing?
A huge buff to some stats wouldnt do much bad, because of the insane difficulty (or rather insanity) of Inferno.

While I'm sure the intent was mostly sarcasm, the 1.03 patch, which is due by the end of the month, will adjust the loot tables to make inferno farming somewhat more viable. Source.

Until then I am gone.
Im really getting sick of only being able to farm act 1 inferno and only see crap drop that maybe sells for 5k.

I'm sure you can figure out that there are grey market methods to selling anything. And since gems only made up around 13% of what I sold, I can't say it made much of a point to make any difference to explain. Then again I was late to that game. People were already prolific in that area. Too much hassle for too little gain, with too much of a possibility of other problems.

I don't really care but it just doesn't seem like you're being truthful with us. Gems don't have much intrinsic value and were going incredibly cheap on the gold AH in the past. They are dropped often, easily upgraded through in-game methods and easily purchased for small amounts of gold in the trade channels. Your story also changed when I pointed out the very blatant problem with it. It takes up to 72 hours for transactions to clear with the RMAH so I don't see a situation where you could have cleared anywhere near what you said even if you used some dubiously vague grey market methods.

A friend of mine was selling his gold because he's quitting the game, he's been lucky to get $6-7 per million through the so called grey market, I can't fathom people buying $100 worth of gems.

High quality gems go for 5 to 22 million on the normal AH...
Even with medium quality ones there should be money to be made, since they are around 200-500k a piece and even I, stuck in Inferno act 2, have lots of them.

Just a few mins ago I tried to kill an elite pack with some friends and 2 of these rotating laser things popped beside me, I run away from them and *zing* rubberbanding back into them for no reason and I die.
I could tell you dozens and dozens of similar things...
The rubber banding is because something hits you on the server end, and there's lag somewhere, so you think you escaped by running, but the server doesn't think so, so you pop back where says you got hit.

Note that I'm not defending it, just explaining it. Also, lag is NOT always from the ISP or home user's end. There was a link in one of these threads to a blizzard thread about a massive multi second lag spike on blizzards servers that caused most hardcore players playing the game at the time to die. There were 20 pages in that thread, almost all of them hardcore players mentioning how they were killed by blizzards lag spike. So even if you personally have the biggest pipe in the world, and your ISP is the best in the world, and you have the most reliable internet connection in the world with 100% uptime and guaranteed no lag, it won't make a crapload of difference if blizzard's servers choke on something or their net connection craps itself.

I dont think rubberbanding has something to do with lag at all. I noticed I could repeat getting rubberbanded like 10 times in a row, by simply going the same path over and over again. As soon as I took a slightly different way (just a few pixels), it worked.
There is something wrong with the netcode.

Anyway, most deaths are due to these weird deaths out of nowhere or mobs with invisible 20 foot long arms.

Yeah the whole dying all the time in Inferno thing has nearly surpassed the persistent online connection as my #1 reason for not getting the game. I was visiting a friend near Toronto this weekend and was telling him how I was watching a different friend die 10 times in 10 minutes. He laughed and explained that he didn't know what he was doing, didn't have the right gear, etc... Then I watched him die over and over just like the other friend, to bullshit like you've described lasers just suddenly poking through walls, running over a fire trap but not actually making it because of lag... etc. Looked like tons of fun.

10 times in 10 mins is actually quite good.
I can run act 1 now with just a few death. But act 2 is still up to 5 deaths a minute.

Holy shit Wallshadows, I just saw those videos you linked earlier and wow. I can only imagine how pissed those people were, it's one thing to die in Hardcore to a shitty situation and quite another to die to a known bug.

Indeed. I've run in to my share of weird problems which have killed me without any warning so I wouldn't even dare step foot in Hardcore until these issues are addressed.

The worst part about this is that Blizzard seem to be burying their head in the sand when these are brought up. The player who lost his HC character in the first video is in a situation where his concerns are falling on deaf ears and that more people need to complain about it in order for it to be addressed or something along those lines.

Ah, found the thread.

The problem with normal unofficial mods is, that you wont find servers with it. DLC from BIS runs on every server since its included in every patch (with lower res textures).
Hell, I would be happy if I would find a warfare server that is well populated and uses different maps than Chernarus and Takistan.

BTW, blizzard says repair costs could go up 600%.

With my Barbarian in Act 1 Inferno, I'd be fucked. I don't even think I'd break even.

I was fighting an elite last night, and he put one of those spinning beams down so close to me, I didn't see it until it activated. I went from 3/4 health to dead faster than you could snap your fingers. And I'm supposed to be a tank, if you can believe that. Cloth-wearing Wizards in MMOs last longer in combat than I do.

It's much the same with the mobs that spawn the fire on the floor, or have the fire chains that join them. Get anywhere near that shit, and if you don't move fast, you're gone. So what happens is that you end up with a game of kite and die, damaging them just a bit more each time, until you can finally take them out. If they healed up fully between each death of mine, I don't think I'd be able to get anywhere in this game.

What is it someone else said, 7 years in the making? How the hell did they miss this?

I agree. Very stupid idea and encourages skipping hard mobs and packs even more, even though they want to fix that. Blizzard logic...
Up to 30k repair costs I guess. That a few times on an evening and I am broke and might aswell quit the game because I wont be farming all day long just to pay my repair bills.

Or maybe they only do it this way because they think then more people will buy gold on the real money AH.

The idea is to change people's behavior to go through more of the game than just the boss run.

People are not killing elite not because of shitty loot, but because they are very often impossible to kill on Inferno. On Hell and others they kill those elites all the time. Ive never been in a group that skipped elites in Hell or Nightmare. But in Inferno, skipping Elites is as normal as going to repair every 5 mins.
Just adding loot to them wont help anything.

Yeah, I did that too and cranked out a Demon Hunter to help gear my Barbarian. The problem was that playing a glass cannon class really made me more frustrated than getting stomped in full tank spec by Fallen.

While I can appreciate the method of burning them down first it leaves a lot to be desired when ranged mobs and certain types of melees (Herald of Pestilence in Act 3) can attack you with what often feel like guided missiles or have an incredibly huge detection box. Hell, some mobs like the Hellflyers can sometimes just pop in without an animation and kill you!

Act 2 was an annoying gear check but Act 3 is a fucking nightmare of pussy Fallen hit-and-run tactics on 50% of the mobs.

In the end, I dumped my DH because it made me want to put my face through a wall and ended up getting my Barb to Act IV and 'working on' Rakinoth...

Yeah I had those problems too once. Then the lag cleared.

In Europe we had the 4th evening in a row without stable servers now. Simply cant play when we want to.

But thats not enough, the balance of the game is just frustrating. from Normal to Hell you always had at least a little bit of progress. In Inferno at Act 2, youre literally dieing more than you can kill monsters AND you still have to skip lots, if not most of the elites.

You could prolly have fun in Inferno, if you had 100 million gold to spend. Farming for that amount of money will take about half a year, if you only have the evenings to play. And if you buy it, you will have to pay something around 4000 Euro right now.

I really want to play. I always find myself trying Inferno over and over again, but then quitting the game with a swift alt-f4 when I just died 20 times in a row again or have to skip the 3rd elite pack in a row, or having one block the way, so we cant continue.

Im also not the only one feeling this way. Seeing so many people quit the game after a few deaths, and my friends complaining about the exact same stuff and playing much less. One of them even made a new char to 60 because he thought it would be easier. But then he realized that its as bad. I havent seen him online for 2 days, before that he was on every single day since release.

I would have actually gotten a refund by now, but after reading that you have to dial an American phone number for that and having wait times of up to 90 minutes, I realized that I would lose as much money on the telephone bill for that call as I paid for the game.

Right now I am only checking one or two times a day for my auctions and hope a few sell for enough that I can finally buy some proper gear - which hasnt happened yet once. I dont play anymore.

Maybe I should get a refund on The Witcher 2 on Steam due to that clusterfuck with 8gb Patches when it first came out...

Oh wait... you cant....

Actually you can.
Read the User Agreement. 30 Days.
Prolly only counts for the digital download, but thats what I have.

Nope, looks like everyone can get a refund except the WoW drones. Coming directly from a Blizzard employee:

If you purchased the game, you can get it refunded as long as the receipt shows the purchase date in the last 30 days at the time a refund is requested. If the game was added to your account via the World of Warcraft Annual Pass there's nothing that can be refunded as it was never purchased.

For more information, please contact our Billing Department.

Billing representatives are on hand to take your call between 7am to 8pm Pacific Time, 7 days a week at 1-800-59-BLIZZARD (1-800-592-5499). Customers in Australia should call 1-800-041-378

Nice patch.
I am in some kind of patch loop. It always restarts my game after logging in and wants to patch it, but its already patched.

So I checked the forums and it was quickly obvious from all the dozens of huge threads about that problem, that Blizzard was too stupid to realize that being able to switch server locations in the game would have to mean either they need to have different patch servers too, or simply patch all servers at the same time.
Now I cant play because my game was updated like a US version and my chars are on EU servers. I have to wait until those servers are patched too. As I said, I am not alone. Many solutions that more or less involve to download the whole client again were posted by... users. Blizzard has yet commented on that problem. Awesome going...

This is really the problem with Inferno in general, most of the gear required to do Inferno comes from Inferno itself. You do a lot of farming and AHing since the drop rates are so random and lower in general due to instanced loot.

All my equipment is from AH. Prolly early Inferno rare stuff (level 54 to 59), and a 800 dps weapon. Im trying to buy more level 60 gear but even with a million gold you can only buy one or two good item pieces.

So to retort,

Ive seen people like you who run around with 50 bazzillion HP in Inferno and die every second because you dont have any resist gear and think its viable to out gear it with flat HP.

Its people like that who are in the forums crying like hell because they dont understand how the game works and then complain that there HP alone isnt helping them and the game is somehow broken.

those people need to L2p.

I have very good gear, lots of HP for a wizard, but there is no chance completing even act 1. People already have adapted. They dont play Inferno much, and if its being played, a few areas are being farmed, by avoiding mobs and running to chests and stuff.

Yeah, better gear will prolly change that, but I wont farm act 1 or Hell act 3 & 4 until I have 20 million to buy proper gear.
I feel like Im going to stop playing soon, because this is not fun.

repeat after me, HP is the least important stat in inferno.


Yeah, especially if the servers lag so much that you cant avoid getting hit, even as a wizard. Also you have to kite the elites all the time (which is another joke) and in tight quarters its even more impossible to avoid getting hit.

Ive seen people like you who run around with 17k HP in Inferno and die every second. Yes, very much fun indeed and so unimportant!

There's a certain level of Effective HP you should reach (Effective HP being HP modified by your resist and armor values), but the thing is that in Act 4 and to a lesser extent Act 3, survivability is not attainable. You WILL get ripped apart, regardless of your gear, if some mobs get near you.

The best defense in the later Acts is a good offense. You can't tank them anyway, so beyond a basic level of HP and resistance, you'd be stupid to even try. Without solid DPS and a reasonable kiting spec you will hit the enrage timers on the elite/champion packs and you will die.

What he should have said is that vitality whoring is a bad idea. You need some level of resists, and you need excellent DPS. Balanced stats are both more effective, and cheaper to obtain.


Of course, but since youre not going anywhere near them, but they still have ranged attacks and stuff they put on the flors that is sometimes impossible to avoid and still does a lot of damage with lots of resists, with few HP you will die very quickly, while you have a very good survivability with enough HP.
I agree, HP whoring is stupid, but its as stupid to ignore it almost completely.

Yeah, especially if the servers lag so much that you cant avoid getting hit, even as a wizard. Also you have to kite the elites all the time (which is another joke) and in tight quarters its even more impossible to avoid getting hit.

Ive seen people like you who run around with 17k HP in Inferno and die every second. Yes, very much fun indeed and so unimportant!
