I know what you mean Creston and I feel as though it would be a fairly dangerous precedence to revive a HC character for those who have died to issues outside of their control.

While it is a risk and most of us may not even make it through Act 1 Normal without keeping the floor boss at bay; however, it feels like a giant cop out at the same time when you can be an incredibly skilled player and die due to server-side collision issues that may be nearly impossible to be aware of until it's too late. HC should be about the player's skill, patience, and attention to detail rather than get smoked by something you simply cannot avoid.

Without knowing how long or even whether or not this will be fixed in the future is simply up in the air and it becomes much worse when Blizzard is making little to no noise in regards to these issues and only addressing them if a certain number of complaints are made. If this is working as intended with their server-side infrastructure and little to no change is made, well, that's just bad news bears for those who stay for Hardcore.

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 glaring issue with the auction house in a game like Diablo is that items are not bound to the character and everything (save for a few things such as staff of herding + materials) can be listed.

In WoW, you only had specific items which were either bought by grinding your VP for a week + or through lucky rare drops which created a bottleneck on the distribution of 'end game' gear through purchases.

The AH is all or nothing with little to no shades of grey and the only way Blizzard seems to have curbed the sale of gear is by capping the listings at 10 items per account and a fixed listing time after the five minute warning.

Depends on the quality. You can nab Act 3/4 gear which isn't bad for anywhere from 50k to 500k but the best gear is usually in the multi-million dollar range per item. Dropping cash on ilvl 60/61 gear found mostly in Act 1 and 2 is really just a gold sink so it's best to save a little more the expensive gear which typically has more generous stat balance.

For a Barbarian anyway.

There are already tons of AutoIT scripts and bots floating around out there to farming the chest in front of the Dye trader in Act 3 to Sarkoth in Act 1.

But to play devil's advocate for a moment, this wasn't really duping or, at least, duping as we know it in the Diablo world where you can just duplicate an item over and over and over.

What these players were doing is crashing the game after being unsuccessful with crafting a decent item from the BS (shocking, I know) and this method would allow them to infinitely have a crack at crafting an item since the materials would always be available but would still cost the crafting fee. They wouldn't be able to then duplicate the item once it's made or at least it's not implied or shown.

Meanwhile, I would like to direct your attention to this and this which are just...well...watch...

It's unfortunate because the longer this game has been out the more it feels as though the cons are slowly beginning to outweigh the pros. I'm going to hang in there till at least 1.03 though and see how it feels from there.

For me, I stopped going their when IGN bought them out. Now, it's just something to enjoy on the waybackmachine.

I especially liked the quote of the day/week...usually about Derek Smart.

Additional nerfs and changes:

Tyreal now hits for 1.2k and becomes a liability for Vampiric mobs.
The Loot Goblin on the Ancient Pathway in Act 2 is on vacation.
AFK farming in Act 2 has been fixed
A bunch of Resplendent chests have been removed in Act 3

However, it appears that all you have to do to cancel your auction after the 5 minute window is to simply rollback your system clock to when you put it up since it tracks from local system time instead of server time.

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...

Interface changes? I hope you're not on the sinking ship which thinks it should be like WoW and have ten thousand addons running.

The only thing I would like is some form of countdown timer but beyond that, it serves its purpose quite well unless you derp and change skills in Inferno outside of town.

have even less interest in the new diablo than the former ones, which was very low already

at least the kiddies are happy

Yet you feel the need to constantly go into the threads and talk about it....weird. There is a medical/mental health definition for that.

So many more people come to every D3 forum and complain about what Blizzard is doing or has done to the game. They miss the point that they already gave Blizzard their money, so what they say now is irrelevant. The only way you can send Blizzard the message is to not buy the product in the first place. Everyone else is just enabling it to continue its practices. As far as I'm concerned, anyone with the impulse control to not buy D3 is doing the game industry a service.

I don't know, I have over a hundred hours logged in to it and still enjoy playing it in spite of some of the glaring issues but I guess I'm not suppose to be having fun.

I'm such an prick!

Tooltips for the following class abilities have been updated to reflect changes made in patch 1.0.2 and previous hotfixes

Sounds like something valve would do. Hey guis, if you change an ability, change the text!

Jesus Christ, do people not understand how a "hot fix" works?

It gets fixed server side. The tooltips don't get fixed until the next client patch. They even state this with the hot fix patch notes.

Applies to Wallshadows post too.

Fair point but it begs to wonder whether they are being lazy or efficient by waiting to bundle tooltip errors with gameplay changes (as minor as they can be) rather than to do it sooner especially in the case of stealth nerfs.

In WoW I always went for selling by volume. I'd just price my buyout a few gold under any of the same competing items, and if there weren't any I'd just set it quite high. Didn't always work but sometimes it was a nice surprise to see someone actually forked out an insane amount of gold for something.

My friend does this too and his reasoning is that nothing costs to much for the right person. He was still selling 397 BoE boots for 7 - 8k on the AH up until not long ago because he knew that, sooner or later, someone would want them right then and there.
