Diablo® III

Arcane Beams :(

I haven't ever died to any arcane beams in my 500+ hours play time. Seriously, it is one of the easiest affixes to deal with, just kite a bit and stop crying kid


This dude is lying.


Not necessarily, he has a monk, which has the strongest arcane defense in the game. (Non-WW) Barbs on the other hand have one of the hardest times with arcane though.

Arcane is fine, it's reflect damage that needs removing.

Arcane shouldn't kill you in an open area, and if combined with another monster affix then them's the breaks. But reflect damage is just completely against the spirit of Diablo.

Not really. Iron Maiden had melee dropping instantly in D2. It took them years to remove it.

Sounds like it is completely against the spirit of Diablo.

Beams are nothing. run around them, if you cant jump over them or use whatever traveling skill your class has to avoid them.

The big annoyance for me is fast+frozen.

They spit out like 20 effin freeze balls a second all throughout the stage and your already in the middle of an epic battle with all kinds of effects going off here and there...pretty hard to see em most times and when thier going off one after the other you get perma frozen.

Meh I think pretty much everything except for molten is ok in the game, molten is just way overpowered and the area of effect isnt completely visible, you still get its effect outside of the lava trail when your around it.

But..haha lets talk about the greatest cheapest friggin thing to kill you in the game. I literally watch ppl drop like flies to this one specific thing in the game.

Firewall. With 800+ all res firewall literally kills me in 1.5 seconds and worse for some others...why is this particular trap in the barracks ext so storng lol?
Res someone..opps they accepted at the wrong time firewall back up, player insta gibbed..again.
Hahaha.

You can stand in beams, poison, fire and out heal the damage if you are geared enough. To me, i think the cc stun from frozen is more annoying =/

Archon form should be immune to arcane damage. I mean in Archon form you are literally pure arcane energy right?

Better yet it should enhance archon form even further cause more fuel for the fire!!

Looking at the topic title, I thought why someone necro'd an old thread, but it was only posted yesterday.

I don't believe anything is OP'd except you who can't feel a thing through arcane beams.
If you are at a level where things don't hurt, I think you've surpassed that level and should move on to higher level.
If you were taking hardly any damage in MP0, then try MP5 and tell me how it feels.

Mp 0= one laser out of the beam

Mp 5= 2 lasers out of one ball

Mp 10= 3 laser beams proturding out of each ball on ground.

Yeah i said it, let it be done!

Arcane beams are fine. To avood the each class has atleast 1 skill sometimes more.

Barb = leap
Demonhunter = vault
Monk = serenity
Wizard = teleport

And unfortunately i cant remember the name of the witch doctor ability where he turns transparent but thats the witch doctors ability anyways. So if the annoy you then use a defensive skill which i just listed. Will stop you from dying to the first 1 or 2 beams anyways, and if you re unlucky enough to meet a third 1 try running around it...

Both arcane and reflect doesn't need nerfs or removal.

But I do really think that people's brains need a buff, They don't seem to function nowadays.

Nope dont think either need a change. I do think reflect should be some sort of visual symbol above that monster types head though instead of me having to search out the different mods each elite/champ has by hovering over them before I fly in with zombie bears.

Dont need to change the effect, just make it easier for me to recognize that I have to perform different tactics for this particular group of enemies.

I have the "killit" syndrome..I see an elite/champ I run in bears running to tear them asunder, specially when your doing runs over and over, sometimes you just forget to search out the mods first cause youve been killing thousands of demons, all your thinking is, oooh maybe sweet loots time!! KILLLIT!!!
