And please don't tell me otherwise, I play with my Brother who plays this game non stop and is well over level 700 on the paragon levels. And we see it all the time, no one wants to take Barbs on the Greater Rift runs over level 35.

Sorry to tell you otherwise, but Raekor's barbs are pretty darn good. They are in fact the fastest T6 clearer in the game and are really good in GR. The reason no one wants to take them is the most damage done in the game is Demon Hunter's BY FAR, so Barb just didn't fill any role in higher GR. Nor does Monk, Wizard, or any DPS Crusader or WD.

The roles are 2 DPS DHs, one CC/buff Crusader, and one CC Witch Doctor. Until other classes can match the dps of DHs or the CC/buffing of the two best support classes, it's going to remain that way if you want a really good high level GR group, unfortunately.

Sorry, but you are full of shit. The Barb is horrible. The only classes anyone will play with are Monks, DH and WD's and Crusaders all other classes are considered worthless to the higher tier players. And monk's barley fall into that category, they are only useful as Palm Monks.

Raekor's barbs are the fastest solo T6 clearer in the game. T6 is still a great way to acquire gear. I will certainly grant you, that a Raekor's barb is not particular welcome in many groups simply because they are so ridiculously fast, it makes most other classes feel like they are not contributing.

Where Barbs are not needed is in the highest level of GRs where it requires a coordinated team of roles, but like I said most other classes/builds aren't used there either except for 3 specific builds.

So my point is simply that you are using one metric - higher GR, to decide that "The Barb is horrible." This metric is not even the best way to acquire gear (far from it) - it is simply the most difficult content for leaderboards. So if you consider Diablo a loot gathering game (which it is), the Barb excels at it. He's just not particularly group friendly.

And I'm not sure where you are getting Palm monks from - EP was basically removed out of contention when they got rid of it scaling from monster health, unless you are talking about the current PTR, where it is making a comeback.

OK, keep telling yourself that while you are sitting on the sidelines when no one will take on on the higher Rift runs.


Yes, he can SOLO. lets make that clear and say it in slow motion. SOLOOOOOO!!! but that's about all he's worth. He cant kill Single Target Rift bosses very well when it comes to the much higher Rifts. he lack DPS. He can not keep up wit many of the other classes. So rant all you want about how great he is and keep living In that delusional realm you seem to like. because the reality is he's still worthless at the end of the day.

...and then we decided to make Diablo3 into WoW lite. Only more amezballs and less griefing. The End.

I don't get the WOW comparison. Other than the skill trees. Which I hate. Still love the game(now that it's fixed).

I see some of the WoW aspect in D3. Its defiantly there.

Speaking of the Barbarian, its out right shameful how Blizz has destroyed this once beloved character. Cant DPS for shit, and his survivabilty on the front line is disgusting compared to the other classes. And Blizz for some odd reason refuses to fix the Barb.

And please don't tell me otherwise, I play with my Brother who plays this game non stop and is well over level 700 on the paragon levels. And we see it all the time, no one wants to take Barbs on the Greater Rift runs over level 35.

Someone needs to learn how to use his Graphics Options in the game and adjust them accordingly if you are seeing 8 bit graphics.

But hey, thanks for the good laugh.

So, in other-words they want to cripple the game even more by adding higher end cool-downs that will evidently cause players to die more often. I can just hear my brother now bitching about this one.

If it is just those skills that offer complete invulnerability, I don't see any issue with this. It's not like they're applying it to Akarat's Champion, and completely fucking over the majority of Crusader builds.

Ill just say this, I have played every class, and have some really good geared toons. I never once saw where I was invulnerable for any long length of time. No Idea where that's coming from. I have had my ass handed to me more times then I can count.

20-25GB for a patch? If you have a strict bandwidth cap, I'm guessing your language selection will be salty.

The patch is actually only a little over 5 GB in size, once expanded its takes up around 20 to 25 GB.

You still need to purchase a boxed copy of the game to get an account key.

Im not sure that will be necessary once it goes F2P. Thats the whole point of F2P. Now, those who do own a copy with a key once it does go free, will have higher tier access to things within the game whereas someone who is coming in first time and free will usually have more stipulations on what you can and cant do.

Was looking to get into ESO, but 60 bucks is still too steep an entry point.
Are there any reputable key purchasing sites anyone can suggest to get a cheap account key?

Wait a few more weeks, the game goes free to play on the 12th I believe.

If anyone has installed this new ESO patch, it was massive. Its basically an over haul of the entire game. I was playing around with it last night and its a really nice patch. There are so many new things you can do now like pick pocketing citizens and murdering them to in town.

Also, all of the skills and powers have been re done.

XBatmanX if you see this please message me, I need to talk to you about the Guild in game. I need Officer status please.

Read the patch notes, its a pretty amazing patch.

The New DAI patch that adds Mouse Toggle support is really nice to. Check it out guys!

As long as it is more like Fallout New Vegas, less like Fallout 3, I'd be happy enough.
Happier still if they stopped using highly-modified GameByro and shifted to <insert modern engine here>.

Oh, hell no! I want city action, underground complexes, Subways and Military bases. Along with an entire underground system to travel through. that was the one very appealing thing for m about Fallout 3. I just love being underground like that and having a topside to run around too. Fallout 4 was very lacking in this area. I totally lost interest after about 50 hours in.

Why is a Tracy Hickman novel a stretch goal - and a 50k one at that? It's like so many people propose the weirdest stetch goals. At the very least, make it the last one AFTER all the other add-ons for more gameplay are met.

I have to agree about that stretch goal there. I was scratching me head in bewilderment. They should have added a few more items to that goal at the very least. And I would hardly call it barely making it with 6 days left. the final days is when these things really take off. Id imagine its going to make at least two of the goals before ending.

Anytime you criticize something Creston, its expected!

But in all truth, if you hadn't played this game you should check it out sometime .it really is a great game. the play physics and combat alone is what really made this game stand out.

Oh wait...

But I mean seriously. Split screen on PC? Wut?

I could care less about Split Screen, but no Coop that was promised is another thing entirely and unacceptable.

The friends I hang out with live and breathe Coop its the first thing we look at in a game.

Its the deciding factor in most of our game purchases.

I'm mostly fine with them delaying it. In fact I had no problem at all with the first delay. However, the second delay kinda worries me and if they delay it a third time I'm going to be royally pissed. This game better be 100% bug free when they finally release it.

This is already like the fourth or fifth delay.

So? whats your point? Are you complaining because they are taking the time to fix and polish the game rather then just dumping it out there and then tossing patch after patch at it? Id rather all developers take their time on releasing a game making sure its as good as can be on release day.

This is a good thing!!

Where did you get that I was complaining? Did you even read the quoted text in my post?

I read every word of it, and when you state this is the forth and fifth delay, I read that as complaining and whining. Maybe state your wording a little less objective.
