    posted a message on D4 classes

    Instead of wasting everyone's time debating whether or not there will even be a D4 I'll entertain the OP's original question and state something I feel very strongly about -- fair play and the leaderboards. The D3 leaderboards. What do they really mean if you have botters, players who use map hacks, and I'd go so far as to say players who choose to use NumLock. There are 6 skills we have to juggle. 6. And not all of them for any build even has cooldowns. So, you're telling me you cannot manage cooldowns? Waaaahhh. My wrist hurts! I need the computer to automatically cast my cooldowns. Pffft.


    But, I know I'll get flamed. Especially coming down on users of NumLock. But, for D4 Blizzard has to come up with steps where we all are essentially doing the same thing. Yes, there is RNG and that's okay. But, if you allow botters, map hackers, and NumLock users to be on the same leaderboards as legit players, then what do the leaderboards even mean? Have two sets of leaderboards. I am not going to spew hate and say botters, NumLock users are bad players, lazy, whatever...do what you want to do. BUT...if you want to give yourself an edge, if you feel like you have to do botting to stay competitive, fine. You get lumped into these leaderboards over here, and everyone else gets put on the official leaderboards. Maybe there is some way as soon as the Guardian drops, that Blizz knows if you NumLocked, or have bots on your account.

    posted a message on Guardian season 3 gems to 70 question

    I know there is something funky about this requirement, but forgot what it is. The requirement description is super vague. Is it that all gems need to be 70 and equipped? I am trying to help my support Monk friend and they have 2 level 70 gems equipped. So, I am wondering if the following would work -- they have a level 65 Bane of the Trapped in stash for a different build. If they equipped that gem after the Guardian went down (replacing the Iceblink) but before talking to the leveling NPC, and got it to 70, would that count for the Guardian requirement?

    12 is the current NPC level cap.

    posted a message on INSUFFERABLE MISCREANT S14 Bug

    Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I think these goblins' mechanic is different, by nature. The Miscreants are not "there" on the map by default, like blood shard goblins, gelatinous, etc. Miscreants pop out of a portal. They just appear. So, maybe that's why there is one.

    posted a message on What is the Easiest build to play ?

    You gotta toss in Sunwuko Wave of Light in this list. Assuming you can farm all the necessary pieces for your sister, once she is set up, it's pretty much one click and entire screens of enemies are gone. Epiphany and Inner Sanctuary are honestly unnecessary unless she wants to push harder.

    Well done, sir! One of my favorite shows is Forged in Fire and I imagine you have seen that just a few times as well. :)

    Quote from darkcubanboy»
    Guys ... my point is simple. The only way to find a legendary/ancient item is by gaining paragon and playing.

    Only one week deep in the season everybody has primals and doing 110+. 3 weeks deep nobody is playing anymore.


    Well, not quite. ;) But, I get your point. One thing all of us have direct control over is how OCD we are at the beginning of a season. Go crazy and play all night, all day -- and yeah, it gets boring very fast. Been there done that. But, no one is forcing us to do that to ourselves. I am taking a different route next season and going hardcore exclusively. That by itself will force me to take things slower, but on top of that I am going to limit myself to 2-3 hours a day.

    posted a message on Build diversity and classes balancing suggestion

    I definitely want to see more options in the realm of support builds. Is anyone else tired of the same Monk and Barb support builds? Why can't the Crusader be a viable option? The class has the natural 25% DR that Monks and Barbs also enjoy -- they need to have viable support skills/runes ramped up a bit so players have another option. Whether it's more DR on that bounty cache Crusader shield, more regen for their Consecration, more resistances for the laws, etc -- it probably would not take too much effort. It would mainly be tweaking to what is already there just so players have another option.

    I love this one -- "That which does not kill us makes us stronger." (Friedrich Nietzsche)

    Definitely appropriate for all the trials we throw at our toons. :)

    Excellent ideas. It would make so many blah items have value again instead of an automatic breakdown for souls.

    posted a message on BlizzCon gives Diablo no love or no news...
    Quote from Aerisot»

    Blizzard has not given up on Diablo, in fact I think this Blizzcon is going to surprise us.


    The new wow expansion is already going to be out, So Diablo is the only game that is begging for something new, and I think we will get it, but I don't think it will be an Expansion to Diablo 3, nor do I think it will be Diablo 4, I personally think they ahve been working on a mmo for Diablo.

    That would be so awesome. I hope you are right, Aerisot. I remember a Blizzard Diablo job posting awhile back and a job requirement for that particular job was knowledge of MMO's. So, something very well may be up.

    Unquestionably. I get tired of the "Diablo is dead" trolls when they cannot take the time and look and see for themselves that something is clearly in the pipeline...

    Why in the world would Blizzard inform you of game updates on a fan forum? They have the PTR and patches notes to accompany each rendition of the PTR that gives you all the info you would need.
