but also saved gear for the Nat Strafe build to put on my other 3rd DH in non-season.


I was skeptical about Nat's because I was never much of a strafe fan before, but it is a really elegant build and my favorite DH build so far (including pre-ROS.)

How'd you like the pure DMO build? I'd heard the damage was weak, so I've actually never ran that with the full 6 pieces and always combined it with Tal Rasha. Sorta itching to try Frozen Orb since using it when leveling the other day.

It was ok. I quickly got to rank 39 or so. It's what I spent most of my time at the start of the season building up to. It just hurts my hand quickly after several intense Grifts, so I didn't find it fun to push.

My main problem across all my current seasonal toons is not getting good weapons. I'm using the Ancient Slow Time weapon (I actually have 3 of them) vs my non-ancient non-Gift Serpent wand and a non-ancient Calamity of my DH.


Since Area Damage is supposed to be working with multipliers, you'd think DMO6 with Ranslor's could be a serious contender. Here's hoping.

Attributing critical discernment to emotional nostalgia is the refuge of the ignorant. Diablo3 is fundamentally broken. The damage/weapon/spell systems are too homogenous. The levels are homogenous because they are just big blocks placed with slight randomization, instead of true random dungeons of Diablo1 and 2.

...rambling truncated...

Shame.

Can't even see you clearly you are so high up on that horse.

Diablo 3 is a blast to actually PLAY and to many that's the most important thing. Sorry it doesn't fit your definition of Diablo, but there are lots of other ARPGs out there for you.

No, the combat isn't great. It's just training the gamer on how to beat a specific boss instead of it being reactive. After a few hours with DS I quickly became bored when I learned how the game worked. It's got great ambiance I'll give you that. Coming across new mobs for the first time is some freaky shit, but you get over it fast.

I can't think of a game with better sword combat. Maybe Mount and Blade, but I prefer Dark Souls.

These games are great for combat and gameplay..

But they fucking suck with story.. This whole "leave purposeful gaps in the plot for the audience to come up with their own idea" is fucking dumb.

Since they have the whole system pretty ironed out already, they should really fire their director and start implementing a better story system.

When games have really great gameplay, I'd generally prefer the story take a backseat. It's pretty rare to me that a game's story is anything I take much notice in as they usually do a far worse job than a good movie or book.

theyarecomingforyou, zor I'm going to ask both of you two very important questions. When did you back and for how much?

I backed for $930 since 1/2013 (Veteran backer status).
Not sure why this important but whatever. I first backed 11/14/2012, and I've spent $716.43

Two fucking insane amounts. Hope you realized by now that all you bought with it was absolutely nothing. And, tbh, it deserves a classic ROFLMAO.

Depends on how much money you have/make. What was the line from Glengarry Glenn Ross? "This watch cost more than your car."

Oh and in a time where Hearthstone is the #4th most-watched game on twitch (47,132 people currently watching people play a card game, pfft). yeah... best not to bother.

Maybe they thought they couldn't compete and needed all that money for their Win10 marketing blitz.

I could live with a PS logo on the PC version since Sony aren't treacherous little motherfuckers like Microsoft backstabbing PC gamers every two seconds. They're just doing their thing on the PS but have no real interest in screwing over PC gamers like Microsoft who are still pursuing their masterplan of eliminating PC Windows gaming ever since the conception of the first ShitBox.
So if the G29 PS4 version were PC-compatible then I might even consider it. But I'm not even thinking about touching the G920 with a ten foot pole as long as it has that Xbone crap on it. Yuck. I already feel like taking a shower just from looking at the disgusting little fucker....

It's a little steering wheel for playing video games

In regards to the Polygon article, never have I read something where "check your privilege" is actually the perfect response. Even by the pretentious, arrogant standards of Polygon, that article was abysmal. That no editors stopped it from being published just shows how much contempt for the medium that site has. If they keep pushing this hard, I think a lot of publishers and developers are just going to decide they aren't worth dealing with any more. They're arrogant enough to think that won't happen but honestly, if I worked in Harmonix (or CD Projekt Red for that matter) PR right now, I'd be cutting that site off if that's what I could expect out of them.

I thought the same thing. I didn't even realize Polygon had enough clout to be able to write "articles" like this (I never go to the site.)

Whats the point? Why is there no PvP in this game? (Or at least hardcore dueling)

I tell you why, because you have a bunch of whinny asshats who are playing seasonal and are bitching about the Witch Dr. AKA Fear DR. and his CC abilities to lock down mobs so the party doesn't get wasted on insta-kills. but that the WD is doing is building out a n XP CC build and they are leveling up faster then everyone else. Which I could care less about but there are always those whinny little bitches who just cant leave well enough alone.

So basically, CC is going to get the big nerf hammer and screw over the game so doing higher G-rifts will now be even more impossible. Yea, Blizz says we are scaling down mob damage. but that wont change the fact that you cant control a mob and the party is going to get their asses handed to them on a platter now.

for those who don't know what the Permanent CC ability is that the WD can do, what he does is wears a specific helm and an off hand I believe, that allows the Mobs to get CC'd when hes in range of them by fearing them it locks the mob down so they don't run all over the place and spam their Arcane, or what ever abilities they use on the party. it helps you get control of the mob and kill them off quicker. it helps, but the higher end mobs because of the high damage they do still kicks the crap out of the melee classes.

My question would be to Blizz, why make all of these Unique items that allow you to CC mobs then screw it over? The same can be said about the other XP Gear like the Cains set. Its such Bullshit and Blizz just cant leave well enough alone.

Blizz likes playing their little game of heres your piece of candy, but your not allowed to eat it. An yes, many people are pissed about this CC change.

It's just the Tiki hat, that's all you need. You can perma-CC the rift guardian with legacy gear, but that's most likely not the perma-CC blizzard is talking about.

I think perma-CC from the Tiki hat should absolutely go, however.

Blizzard already handled perma-CC long ago when they introduced CC resistance. When a mob gets hit for a 1 second CC, they get 10% CC reduction. Similarly, when they are CC free for 1 second, they lose 10% resistance.

So perma-CC resistance is in and ready to go. So why is it a problem in the current game? The WD Fear skill does not obey those rules. So all they probably have to do is put the Fear skill on the CC list and the game will work as it always had.

Once they do this, however, the 4 man group game will get turned on its head. So they can't just do it in vacuum. The plan as I understand it, is to tune down the incoming damage, so that you can stack toughness and use toughness legendary gems so that 4 man groups are around the same level. Seems pretty straightforward - if you remove perma-CC and the 4 man groups can only hit GR 60 when they could hit 70 before, you lower the damage until they can hit 70 again.

Added bonus - end game 4 man groups can fight something besides frozen statues.

Enjoyed my Barb in Season 2. Came out of it with gear for Leapquake and Furious Charge builds. Both of which improved with gear I had in non-season.

Tempted to make another Barb in the new season try anew build with the new gear changes.

Did a few runs this afternoon with my DH and got several new drops already.

I dunno - I think they nerfed IK horribly by removing Mortick's. Last minute with no notice either - sheesh.

I've blown a billion on a single item re-roll, so I'm sort of glad with the way it is. If gold was more finite, then when you get to 20 million per re-roll it would get really frustrating.
Wow, that's semi-impressive. Don't suppose you know how many re-rolls that is?

No, but it is super easy to get an item to the 10M per roll if you are looking for a hard to get affix or re-rolling damage range on a weapon. At that level it's what? 100 rolls?
