Diablo® III

ptr notes

ok so i downloaded the ptr and im currently playing.

so here is my findings so far in the little time i have played.

i set the diffucluty to the max which is master(you cant select anything higher til your a lvl 70)
and its just not high enough a difficulty to check anything. ive looked to see if there is a slider like make it master 5 or something but i dont see it anywhere. my pestilence is killing everything on screen in a matter of seconds. my health hasnt gone below half even standing in multiple tree posion pods.

i did find a pair of rare shoulders that i cant equip but they rolled +12% to fetish damage so itl ooks like rares can roll certain skill pump ups.. i found rare pants with firebomb buff and a chest withlocust buff as well.

tbh im not sure you can really even learn to much at this point i just walk through everything.

my chicken and mck knife are equipped but it doesnt have a posion cloud around me anymore even though the set says it does. but he posion still procs and breaks things u just cant see it.

idk all in all its just like playing on mp5 right now elites take a seconds or 2 to kill. i went to halls 3 andfound a pack of beserkers i let 3 hit me at once with th big hammerdrop it took my hp down to half.

the paragon points is cool. in core has int/health and max mana and movespeed.

move speed is still capped at 25 i confirm this atleast for the ptr.

deffence has life%/armor/all resist

utility has gold find/loh/- resource cost/

offene has ais/cc/cd/dooldown reduction

there is 1 more for utility and deffence but i dont remweber what and im not in game anymore and im in a long que again.

thats all my finding for now. to say the least im underwelmed imo u really still need beta access to be able to run test and see ur finding.

u cant use any of the new skills or passives they are all 61+ u cant try adventure mode or act 5 both are for the beta.

I played all the PTR's but I may sit this one out. Doesn't seem very constructive.

i think this ptr is just patch 2.0(1) and not really ROS beta.

i read complains in chat that items higher than 60 drops and you cannot equip them because you cannot gain levels. lol

I haven't been able to play much, but every item that dropped for me was level 61 and couldn't be equipped.

lol isnt that the reason for the PTR 2.01 so you can use the gear that drops? O.o

did I miss that conference call? :P

I think ill wait guys, this actually might frustrate me more then I already am , I need to calm down

I got drops lower than 61, but its stupid that you cant do anything at all other than notice a few tweaks like cursed chests, some visual effects, and making the game ridiculoiusly easy......

Cant craft either cause no normal items are dropping.....

I did find a really nice BK ring tho :D

just a question i downloaded PTR 2.01 and i cant see my chars. Is it normal? i need to start new chars in order to play PTR? because last time i participated PTR i could choose from all of my chars..

you have to copy them over…which happens to be hidden behind the "upgrade now" banner. try restarting, joining a game and backing out, or creating/deleting toons…eventually that banner will go away

  • Zero cooldown wall of zombies - it is fun but the damage is kind of meh, the DoT does stack to those who wonder. Maybe better with the new DoT set :). My dps was only around 130k with the legacy items.

  • Thorns - damage is scaled by 25% of your primary (intel). I was doing around 140k damage per attack with my set (20k thorns), haven't tested yet if it works on ranged attacks. It is nice added damage but not op without the aoe set

  • 10 Zombie dogs - omg this is cool, lots of fun. Circle of Life will let you get to 5 dogs, Boogie Man will let you get to 10 dogs, you can even swap Boogie Man out for something else once you have 10 dogs and just keep circle of life. If you die you are out of luck but could be great for hardcore. Maybe a bug...

  • Fetishes - confirmed 130% damage but sadly they still die too easily. Vampire Bats with Pierce the Vail will probably be the best setup for Fetishes, stack as much attack speed as you want.

    There are no numbers on the skills, so its hard to tell if the big buffs to some skills like Acid Rain are in effect....BUT

    Poison Dart: Splinters now will only hit one splinter per target, the other two splinters hit nearby targets, and if there is only one target, the other two pass harmlessly thru the target.

    Sounding a little bit buggy, but thanks for the additional information guys.

    When you get into the PTR all of your settings are reset. So you have to go to into Options and turn on Advanced Tool Tips. You have to do that for Elective Mode also. I haven't been in this PTR yet but in past PTR's that is what you had to do.

    Did you try Fierce Loyalty with the Fetishes?
    I am wondering if this would keep them alive long enough.
