Dec 9 Best class just for getting the tab in S5... Granted that I'm only doing S5 to get that extra stash tab, picking the right class can make this a hell of a lot easier. And I'm sure I'm not the only one in this position. What do you guys think is the best class to use for this purpose? I'm somewhat torn between Crusader and DH atm. The Invokers set's way of gearing looks like it'll be easier to gear up with lack of focus on crit stats. Then again, the DH shadow set is one I've been looking forward to for a while now. Decisions, decisions.Mugsy15 Dec 9

Dec 3 I'm going back to a simpler time... PS3 version of ROS is $30 during the current black friday sales... and it's stuck in patch 2.0.6 where there are no legendary gems (so sockets aren't an issue) and M6 sentries still autofired. Given that I have $66 of PSN credit and don't have a PS4, I think I'm gonna get me ROS on PS3 for some old school DH fun during patch Tuesdays - lolMugsy9 Dec 3

I was hoping to get some more Crusader time in S5 but don't think I know Crusader well enough to get the tab. Don't have enough storage space to rebirth more than character... nor do I have the time to play more than one character. I'm really hating this decision by the devs... getting a stash tab should open up the game but instead you have to go backwards, limit your variety and do something frustating to do it.Mugsy17 Dec 2
Nov 30 Been gone for months what's going on? Hey all been gone for months and might still take an even longer break...too busy playing Witcher 3 (very big game) right the moment. But like to ask about what's happening since I haven't updated my game for awhile. Ever since the last major update on Tal Rasha set I have stopped playing. Well usually D3 is the game you can easily take a big break and come back when you feel like it. But is it worth coming back or just wait for the next big update when everything improves. I've heard there is a cube coming...but too confusing on how it suppose to work. But still sound like more RNG on RNG. I think the reason I stop playing was that the grinding for levelling up legendary gems just became too much for me. I mean trying to get your gems to above level 30 was just too hard to my characters...I was just too weak to get past lvl 30. Even if I had Wiz with full firebirds set and getting the firebirds DoT I still couldn't beat the timer in killing the rift guardian in time. And this is one of the things I hate about this game is that I might find good gear but still feel too weak to do high rifts. So in other words I would have to grind another 200 paragon levels just to get into the level 30's of G-rifts. But also my hands and fingers can't handle that amount of mouse clicking for long...too harsh on the fingers. So I'm taking a break for health reasons...but also I'm playing Witcher 3 anyway. But I still like to know what's new or what's good for the future. Is D3 getting better for rewards or is it still RNG on RNG. I have heard more Torment levels are coming which is great news since I could get up to T6 on my Wizards but when doing greater rifts I was just too T7 might to wonders for me. But I start playing again until this is patched or when things improve greatly. I'm still only on paragon 456 but I do feel waaaaaay behind most people as I've seen people hit 1000...geez. I might have to get Gem of Ease and then rank it to level 25 and then get all my low level characters to 70. But it also might help with gaining paragon levels.MaskedReaper28 Nov 30

Nov 20 Planning for 2.4... and beyond... After all that I've read, here are my thoughts on planning for 2.4 (if you're a NS player)... - Many revised legendary items now come with quite significant +skill damage (similar to the damage boost seen in 2.3 from items like Suwong Diviner or Scrimshaw). If you're holding onto some of these items for reforging, get a 2.4 drop instead. If the item is ancient, it could be good to use with the new Legacy of Nightmares set until you get a new ancient roll. - Level up secondary legendary gems for augmentation... don't waste time on gems with a rank 50 cap. - Keep a decent amount of materials for upgrading rares in 2.4... gets you a BIS ancient weapon sooner. - Stash tabs: yes that controversial topic - it currently looks like seasons will be the only way to unlock more stash tabs. If this is so, I personally will doing seasons to unlock the tabs. Why? Well, most of you here know my need for more space but I personally foresee an expansion pack on the way. If one does arrive, it'll likely mean most of our current gear will become redundant. As someone who doesn't like to see his efforts become redundant, I'll be focusing on obtaining things that will carry it's value through to an xpac. I'll get what ever sets and gear comes my way. It'll make good crafting mats anyway. But here's hoping that a NS means to unlock stash tabs becomes available... I'm really not keen on playing seasons due to the high time commitment required. At least in NS, I'm set up and can leverage off that. Well, those are my thoughts.Mugsy25 Nov 20

Nov 12 And here comes the nerfs... Just looked at the datamined Monk skill changes and as one would expect, nerfs to the Static Charge Monk and Healing Monk set ups have appeared: - Static Charges are no longer procced by everyone... just the monk who applied the SC. So the build isn't dead... just not super OP in groups where you can have 3x zdps classes and hit rank 1. - all the skills that boost life regen have had their bonus life regen reduced from 30% to 7%. Yeah, I reckon the build is dead... everyone's back to healing themselves. Lets see what the next new broken build is!Mugsy14 Nov 12
Nov 11 My Thoughts 2.4 Hi Guys just break down the announcements And putting my Thoughts behind them. 1.New Feature - Set Dungeons - After reading this i feel that it's not a bad Idea maybe more of something to do for the fans of cosmetics or if just bored. Will be interested to see how this well used in the future as there are possibilities here. 2. Revamped Sets a) •Barbarian - Might of the Earth •2p: Reduce the cooldown of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, and Ground Stomp by 1 second for every 40 Fury you spend with an attack •4p: Leap causes an Earthquake when you land; Additionally, Leap gains the effect of the Iron Impact rune and its duration is doubled •6p: Increases the damage of Earthquake, Avalanche, Leap, Ground Stomp, and Ancient Spear by 800% Answer- The positive here is 800% but will this be enough? I,m on the fence with tis was hoping for more I guess. Will there be some more items to help boost this into if not a Tier 1 build maybe a fun build I feel with CC gone we would be looking at fire. Maybe Boulder toss with some new items Skular's Salvation, Ring of Might, Blade of the Tribes B)•Crusader - Thorns of the Invoker •2p: Your Thorns damage now hits all enemies in a 15 yard radius around you. Each time you hit an enemy with Punish, Slash, or block an attack your Thorns is increased by 50% for 2 seconds •4p: You take 50% less damage for 8 seconds after casting Bombardment •6p: The attack speed of Punish and Slash is increased by 50% and deal 600% of your Thorns damage to the first enemy hit Answer- I Feel that the crusader has had or has got a lot of love coming in this Patch .As for this set I see no great movements in its use and it being over shadowed by others. I,m not a sader so might be missing something. C)- Crusader - Armor of Akkhan Set redesigned: •2p: Reduce the cost of all abilities by 50% while Akarat's Champion is active (was 4p) •4p: Reduce the cooldown of Akarat's Champion by 50% (was 6p) •6p: While Akarat's Champion is active, your damage is increased by 450%. Answer- I’m very Happy with the changes here I feel it will be used within new builds and maybe some reborn oldie Goldie’s. D) •Demon Hunter - Shadow's Mantle •2p: While Equipped with a melee weapon, all damage is increased by 1000% •4p: Shadow Power gains the effect of every rune and lasts forever •6p: Impale deals an additional 40,000% weapon damage to the first enemy hit. Answer- Love it Ninja here I come looks well balanced. E) Demon Hunter •Embodiment of the Marauder Set redesigned: •2p: Unchanged •4p: Sentries deal 200% increased damage and cast Elemental Arrow, Chakram, Impale, Multishot, and Cluster Arrow when you do •6p: Your primary skills, Elemental Arrow, Chakram, Impale, Multishot, Cluster Arrow, Companions, and Vengeance deal 400% increased damage for every active sentry (was 100%) Answer- Nope I do not feel that there is enough Dps here so we get 400% for each Sentry but this doesn’t effect sentry’s? Please This is the one set in Dh that I love I want to play but it just doesn’t seem to get there anymore and I feel is still not going to be there. F) •Monk - Monkey King's Garb •2p: Your damage taken is reduced by 5% for each stack of Sweeping Wind you have •4p: Every second Sweeping Wind spawns a decoy next to the last enemy you hit that taunts nearby enemies and then explodes for 500% weapon damage for each stack of Sweeping Wind you have •6p: Lasing Tail Kick, Tempest Rush, and Wave of Light consume a stack of Sweeping Wind to deal 1000% increased damage ANSWER- DEAD and WHY WTF I still miss the Bells Build G) •Witch Doctor - Raiment of the Jade Harvester •2p: When Haunt lands on an enemy already affected by Haunt, it instantly deals 120 seconds worth of Haunt damage •4p: Soul Harvest gains the effect of every rune and has its cooldown reduced by 1 second every time you cast Haunt or Locust Swarm •6p: Soul Harvest consumes your damage over time effect on enemies, instantly dealing 300 seconds worth of remaining damage ANSWER- honestly I have no answer I don’t play WH much Ideas? H) •Wizard - Firebird's Finery •2p: When you die, a meteor falls from the sky and revives you. This effect has a 60 second cooldown •4p: Dealing Fire damage causes the enemy to take the same amount of damage over 3 seconds, stacking up to 3000% weapon damage as Fire per second. After reaching 3000% damage per second, the enemy will burn until they die •6p: Your damage is increased by 100% for each enemy that is burning. Elites that are burning increase your damage by 1500% ANSWER- Love it well balanced and will be great to use again 3. Note Worthy items Barb- •Barb Bracers: Skular's Salvation •Barb Ring: Ring of Might •Any class: Shoulders - While channeling Whirlwind, Rapid Fire, Strafe, Tempest Rush, Firebats, Arcane Torrent, Disintegrate, or Ray of Frost, you deal 20-25% increased damage and take 25% reduced damage •Redesigned Barb Polearm: Standoff - Furious Charge deals increased damage equal to 200-250% of your bonus movement speed ANSWER- Charge Barby Back Oh ya baby DH- •DH Ring: Elusive Ring - Gain 60% damage reduction for 8 seconds after using Smoke Screen, Shadow Power, or Vault •DH Dagger: Lord Greenstone's Fan - Every second gain ~250% increased damage for your next Fan of Knives. Stacks up to 30 times Wiz- •Wiz Belt: The Shame of Delsere - Your Signature Spells attack 50% faster and restore 9-12 Arcane Power •Wiz 1h Sword: The Twisted Sword - Energy Twister damage is increased by ~75% for each Energy Twister you have out. SADER – •New Crusader Weapon: Akarat's Champion gains the effects of the Prophet and Embodiment of Power runes UI + QoL Changes And Zones and 175 new Bounties Just Bring in THUD we all love it, New zones Pfft new Bounties Good news. Changes to seasons- Big Thumbs up here STASH SPACE oh Ya BABY. You should Cap PARAGON in SEASONS to 1000 •Kanai's Cube: Augment Item NICE Solo Scaling EXP Nice but concerned about the game becoming stale for lack of EXP. Also Concerned on The Massacre XP bonuses will not be active in Rifts and Greater Rifts as Peeps are focused on bounties not EXP when doing this I would Change this to only active in Rifts.Waycooloz11 Nov 11
Nov 10 So we have new ring set powers... Legacy of Nightmares: Addendum: damage bonus is 800% per ancient item: Thoughts: Seems they're trying to encourage the use of non 6pc set configurations. 75% isn't going to compete with FnR's effectively 125% of extra damage, but will be a nice damage buff to help bridge T1 and T10 faster. I suppose damage mitigation isn't as crucial during these difficulties either and the link to ancient items for damage mitigation will make gearing an almost legendaries only build in end game viable. My only issue is the use of two rings to get the buffs... rings are usually the more interesting legendary effects and we're blocked from being able to use them yet again. Things like Tall mans or Short mans are still useless. Endless Walk: Thoughts: could be the GR pushing set with current meta of skipping elites... the damage mitigation will be useful. 100% damage increase is short of FnR but the damage mitigation could be worth it. Two issues I see: 1. Builds that move like strafe Nats or WW barbs are kinda pointless with this set. 2. When standing still and using channeling spells, you don't get the damage mitigation and channeling spells is what needs the damage mitigation the most. Will have to see what the community comes up with. The 6pc set changes are looking healthy with Firebirds possibly being super OP. All up on DiabloFans of course.Mugsy15 Nov 10
Nov 10 Action Powers! OK - i finally got around to reading the upcoming patch notes Having played D3 on the console - i have to say I am actually excited to see the introduction of these bonus buffs into the PC game... might encourage a bit more of the old "kill/crush everything" approach that I love as opposed to the current meta of "skip single trash/tough elite..." Thoughts?NickBaldyM0 Nov 10

Nov 8 2 months and 1 week... That was how long Kanai's cube has kept me occupied. Yes, after much gambling, grinding and a final round of upgrading rares, I've completed adding all legendary powers available in NS into the cube. Now to start experimenting with different setups!Mugsy17 Nov 8
Nov 5 Could this work? So for most part, DOT damage sucks atm. And channeling skills aren't very desirable either. So what if we get an alternative to FnR that did this: ... Would be good replacement for the current Wailing Host/Litany or Compass Rose/Traveller's Pledge set power and is applicable to many classes/sets: - Wizard and Firebirds: get them flamming and then use disintegrate or ray of frost to speed up the DOT - WD: plenty of DOT based spells with WD but with all DOT damage getting time extensions instead of just Locust Swarm and Haunt from creeping death, one can use other spells like Grasp of the Dead or Acid Cloud to dot a bigger area faster. Jade Harvester can then nuke much faster. Could use with Firebats as the channeling spell with Helltooth or Arachyr... but we'd need to limit the number of certain effects (say Firewall) from remaining on the field. - Monks: non-cold EP runes get a use again... can use Tempest Rush to channel and speed up the EP explosions - Barb: ring effect would work great with Rend then use WW to make the Rend effect work faster. Could make single target fights better with WW barbs - DH: the only "DOT" based skill for DHs I can think of is RoV... so this would sustain RoV for much longer and you'd need to recast to reposition the area of damage. Strafe or Rapid Fire would be the channeling skills to increase the RoV damage - Crusader: Like DH, not as many options. Stampede is the only channeling skill I can think of. Would probably use with the fire consecration rune, heaven's fury, or fire sweep attack rune. Would be a nice change of pace to the current "hit generator/signature spell, then hit spender, repeat" style of gameplay.Mugsy3 Nov 5
Nov 5 Sad day for an AU gaming community... I'm sure some of you will be familiar with the ISP Internode and their gaming community GamesOnNet (or GON). Well, with TPG as the overlords that own Internode now, they've decided to shut down GON: I've been with the GON community for over 10yrs getting much of my PC advice from the kind souls there as well as getting involved with their Playstation community when my PS3 was keeping me sane during fulltime work and post grad studies. These days I troll here more but it's obviously sad to see a gaming community disappear.Mugsy0 Nov 5

Nov 4 Tips to reduce in-game lag Hey guys, been discussing some things with groups over the last few days/weeks. A summary of what we discussed to help with lag, especially in density grifting 70+. 1. Remove all paragon points from Area Damage and avoid on gear in groups 2. Remove all paragon points from Life on Hit and avoid like the plague on all gear, including purple gems in weapons for zDPS. 3. Avoid the Toxin gem in high Grifting, and sometimes Pain Enhancer. 4. Spamming certain skills, like the Procsaders Condemn, or zBarbs Rend all add to the lag 5. If you get nice juice in a Grift the static has to slowly tag it otherwise too many static tags also cause lag. I'm not too familiar with how the HT or DoD WD are going these days with lag, so feel free to add your own experiences and tips to try and help. Let's face it, the biggest challenge with pushing these days is attack attack attack, lag lag lag, die die die so anything to avoid this helps.GloomeyLeek8 Nov 4

Oct 30 So this is how a high end GR works.... GR87 done on the Asian servers: Their demon slaying is somewhat more upbeat than ours. Despite the insanely high paragon points (assuming too much?), what I find interesting is that according to DiabloFans, it was done with one static monk and 3x zdps builds. The zdps barb and sader were also helping agro off screen mobs to help build density at the healer's location, something I believe anyone who isn't playing healer needs to learn to do (esp with many of us needing GR65+ or 70+ clears to get gem upgrades).Mugsy13 Oct 30

Which is expected to last 5 hours total, this is done to maintain the servers and do any general fixes etc. Server down will start at 3:00am PDT which is: Australia & New Zealand times: Tuesday 27/10/15 6:00pm - 2:00am Perth 7:30pm - 3:30am Darwin 8:00pm - 4:00am Brisbane 8:30pm - 4:30am Adelaide 9:00pm - 5:00am Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra 11:00pm - 7:00am New Zealand Additional time zones can be found here: Note that this maintenance will go for 8 hours, till 11:00am PDT (Barring any unforeseen issues that may extend maintenance) Also remember that blizzard does this while there is the least amount of connected players on the US servers, while it is unfortunate that it falls in a good play time for ANZ it has to be done. ________________________________________________ Twitter: @Narull | ANZ MVP There not spelling mistakes, Im speaking 'Ye Olde English'Narull15 Oct 28
Oct 27 Serious latency issues Had a look around and have: reset modem/router, flushed DNS, rebooted laptop, killed all other app/services running in the background, updated OS software and drivers, even tried switching back to NA servers. Nothing. My latency starts out fine, then will dip quickly into yellow then sit at 1000ms+ for most of my game. I definitely don't get this from other locations I play and latency to other sites are fine - it's just D3 from home that is terribad atm. traceroute: traceroute to (, 64 hops max, 52 byte packets [DELETED] 2 ( 53.483 ms 39.700 ms 38.990 ms 3 ( 47.476 ms 40.678 ms 48.136 ms 4 ( 42.692 ms 42.108 ms 53.069 ms 5 ( 58.093 ms 57.134 ms 55.565 ms 6 ( 69.329 ms 70.508 ms 68.882 ms 7 ( 68.464 ms 68.127 ms 68.365 ms 8 ( 69.056 ms 83.302 ms 69.031 ms 9 ( 69.940 ms 69.012 ms 68.903 ms 10 ( 66.120 ms 74.008 ms 65.522 ms 11 * * * 12 ( 70.249 ms !X * * 13 * * * 14 ( 97.630 ms !X * * 15 * * ( 68.553 ms !X 16 * * ( 100.661 ms !X 17 * * * 18 * * * 19 * * * 20 * ( 75.078 ms !X * 21 ( 85.331 ms !X * * 22 * * * 23 * * * 24 * ( 68.333 ms !X * 25 * * * 26 ( 68.772 ms !X * * 27 * * ( 68.644 ms !X 28 * * ( 68.952 ms !X 29 * * * 30 * ( 68.734 ms !X * 31 * ( 69.731 ms !X * 32 * * * 33 ( 70.381 ms !X * It will go on like that for a while... Have checked the forums and all responses are for NA based players. Moreover, there have been no responses to lag questions for some time. Game is basically unplayable for me right now. Anyone got any tips?abend6 Oct 27
