Aug 4, 2012 Using the US client Are we (AUS/NZ) able to use the US client? Reading the forums now I am seeing people saying that this Service Update is only an hour.. Where did they get that from and why do they even have a different launcher screen than us? I (and I'm pretty sure a lot of AUS/NZ players) would like to see the same info as the US and not 3 week old out of date/irrelevant info on our launcher screen. I mean our launcher screen info was updated like 2 days ago, but for the 1st time in about 6 weeks The only way for us to know an update is coming is via the Server Status Forum which (although the 31/7 maintenance was posted a few days before) isn't normally updated until after the maintenance has startedShaneo884 Aug 4, 2012

Aug 4, 2012 Legendary/Set Items/Awesome rolled Rares Hi guys, Idea taken from General (lol), just wanted to see what everyone has gotten in all their time spent on D3? Me, I have spent close to 260 - 280 hours on D3 and gotten the following Legendary - 3 all crap and vendored/sold cheaply Set Items - 0 Awesome rolled Rares - 3 to my knowledge Sometimes I still wonder why I play this game. Not to be negative but damn that's a lot of time for so little reward! I only still play this as there are some awesome people around these forums to chat to and to play with, otherwise that's it. Would like to hear how you guys have done so far so lets hear your experiences! =Pkyokei13 Aug 4, 2012
Aug 4, 2012 Best tool to maximize your MF sessions!****** So Apple approved my second app - Magic Goblin. (For those wondering, the first was Profit Goblin, discussed in this thread ) 'Magic Goblin' basically helps you track your drops so you can know how well you are doing in your MF sessions. Run it a couple of times and hopefully, you'll know whether it's worth it to MF switch before killing blows, determining most efficient routes for your characters and even Acts. Again, it's a free tool for everyone to use. So enjoy! On the iTunes Page: And for those that want to check out the previous app, Profit Goblin, here's the link: Feel free to leave suggestions and comments here! Thanks PS: If you are having trouble finding the app on the App store on your iPhone/iPod, visit and click on the iTunes page from there and it will take you to the link. Reason is it was just released today, so while you can find it on the web iTunes store, it may not be searchable on the App store yet so you have to click the link manually.noobithree4 Aug 4, 2012

Aug 2, 2012 Someone else did nightmare for me??? Hey guys, I logged into diablo III today only to find that my character (level 50) has already completed nightmare difficulty. I was only on act II nightmare. My character is exactly as I left it. What are the possibilities, seriously? Could someone have hacked my account? And even if so, why, and why would I have only the same items etc.chimpmaster3 Aug 2, 2012

Aug 2, 2012 Latency spiking during evening & night time ? Did anyone have this problem ? or is it just my ISP ? I normally played the game whole day, It always fine during day time, but it's going crazy during 6pm-10pm ish. I always get lag spikes, latency jumping around between 180ms to 1000+ ms. Unplayable Anyone having same issue ? p.s i'm using internode by the wayAlizae1 Aug 2, 2012

Aug 2, 2012 Diablo is a Wimp! 7 Demon Souls? HA! Why is the final battle such a cake walk? Diablo should be one of the hardest, if not THE hardest fight in the game. As it is, that killer affix combo Elite group you met on the way was 10 times harder! Why not put THEM in charge?? This is how it should have gone… Diablo meets the hero, and declares him/herself to have the power of 7 demon lords! (No TERROAR line though) Then, Diablo casts you into the Catacombs from D2, and Diablo BECOMES Andariel, and you have to defeat her. Then you return to the arena, only to be cast into Duriel’s pit, and fight him Then Mephisto, then Belial…you get the idea. Finally, you get to fight Diablo, but wait, he’s afraid of you now, you’ve proven how strong you are, Diablo runs, opening a portal and disappearing. He hides in the Chaos Sanctuary, and you have to open the portals to find him, and you fight Diablo from Diablo 2. FINALLY, after all that, you fight girly Diablo on the Pinnacle of Heaven…and she is the hardest of all. She has the poison nova of Andariel She has the chill charge of Duriel, she can turn ethereal like Mephisto She has the poison explosion of belial She has the death pools of azmodan. She has the electric fire weapon of Diablo NOW YOU DIE! Is all she says…. What a pity that will never happen… You’d think having gone on and on about the soulstone having the souls of all the demon lords, someone at Blizzard would have thought of using all the powers from the past demon lords…? Oh well…at least I can use one of the TWO healing pools while fighting her…with one hand, while watching youtube on the other screen….Yxalitis4 Aug 2, 2012
Aug 2, 2012 Download Failed Awhile back I got sick of the patch issues happening all the time and DLed the US client. Mostly it's been fine, just the occasional launch failure on the first try (but 2nd try was always successful). Now however, I get the initialisation message and then a box pops up saying "Failed to download information about the next patch. Check your internet connection." Any ideas? My AV is configured to allow access by battlenet.Dallo12 Aug 2, 2012

Aug 1, 2012 Lack of response Hi guys, I am sorry if this isn't the right place to ask this, but; I got hacked over a week ago and so I sent "hacks@blizzard" an email, I haven't even received a confirmation email or anything. So after 6 days of waiting (after being told that "blizzard is pretty good with that stuff") I decided to open a support ticket asking why I hadn't heard anything and asking for a roll back of my account. This ticket has been open for 5 days now with no response at all. Has anyone got any experience with this? I am really frustrated because I can't even play my account because all progress will be wiped... Thanks.Scatastrophe6 Aug 1, 2012

Aug 1, 2012 maintainance time displayed for your timezone Surely it's not that hard to make the maintenance messages display the Australian timezone is it ?

Aug 1, 2012 Advice needed on best/cheapest inferno duo Mrs & I have parked a pair of 60s (Monk + DH) at start of act 4 hell. We've contemplated the repair agony of continuing, if only to beat Izzy & upgrade to hell ponies for a laugh. But, with the cheap gear we've found & bought on the AH for just a few 100 thou gold, do we stand a chance in hell of doing anything in inferno? What would the the best & cheapest dynamic duo to tackle some or all of Inferno on a budget? Her DH is very squishy in hell even as I don't think we focused on the right stats, just pumped up DEX/VIT/AR for her as we went along, but recently started adding LR/LoH where possible, which has helped somewhat. We also have a mid-40s wizard pair, though I imagine those are probably not the best combo, being only ranged & even squishier (as we're finding out even in late nightmare!). What gear/life/dps/resists/etc would you also recommend we need from your suggested pair of characters? Remember, budget is the key - we're casual players & don't really like to spend our limited time grinding for gold/gear, and while not averse to using the RMAH, we are also on a RL budget, so pls take that into consideration ;). Much TIA!Nostromo24 Aug 1, 2012

Jul 31, 2012 trying to find some people to farm with (DH) Need some friends with a higher MF (to get better gear), rather than randoms that don't care, i have around 273mf (w/nv) atmo and need better gear (more crit/dex/vit gear) to progress (have killed azmodan in coop game), add me if you want another player to tag along. online most nights. always prefer working in groups that are in it for each other rather than themselves.

Jul 31, 2012 300ms = 3 fps network updates! VS 20 for US 300ms is about 3 network updates per second. 3 fps on the network. Americans get 50ms which is 20 network updates per second. 20 fps on the network. How is this fair? Why does Blizzard do nothing?wolfie4 Jul 31, 2012

Jul 31, 2012 Lag? You can still do it :) Heya, Finished the game last night with a Double Tornado build. What makes this more amazing is it was all done on a Dodo wireless connection, with a ping average of 400 or so, spiking to 1000-1500 most encounters. So don't give up hope just yet, you can do it if you do not have ADSL, it just takes a bit longer, is more frustrating, and costs a bit more on repairs.haja9 Jul 31, 2012

Jul 31, 2012 Leoric's shinbone, anyone need? Hey guys, I'm in the middle of a run, and iI have leoric's shinbone in my game, sitting in Leoric's manor.

Keep in mind that I am in fact on a run atm, so pop in, grab it, and pop out as fast as you can. :)MrDinorawr7 Jul 31, 2012
Jul 31, 2012 So Hows that Local Server going that we NEED? Are there any talks about giving aus/nz a localized server? Would like to know I dont see any reason not to, unless your thinking profit to cost ratio The rubber banding we get is unbearable, and a server here is the only thing that would probably fix that If you guys dont have any plans to give us a server, why not?Drekka12 Jul 31, 2012
Jul 31, 2012 Aus/NZ Livestreamers Would like to say hello and also engage in some shameless, mutual promotion of Aussie/NZ streamers! I stream D3 (A2 inferno atm) most nights, but I haven't seen many other streamers from our side of the globe. I'd like to put together a team on Twitch of Aussie/NZ streamers, but I think partner status is required first. Anyway, feel free to use this thread to describe your stream and schedule :) If you're looking into setting up your own stream, I'll do my best to pass on the stuff I've picked up so far. The biggest deal for me was having enough bandwidth to both run the game and stream it, while maintaining reasonable latency to avoid lag spikes. My ISP - Internode - offers a number of connection profiles to users - turns out their low latency setting (for gamers!) was great for lag but bad for streaming. In the end I was able to compromise, and found the 'high speed' setting (not the 'very high speed' I tend to use) gave the best compromise of ping and bandwidth. Software-wise, Xsplit is a great for just about everything. Pretty intuitive to use. By the way, happy to plug the stream of any players who drop by!

Jul 31, 2012 Help with Wizard build for Inferno Would someone mind giving some help/advice on fine tuning my wizard for inferno? Act 1 was easy enough but Act 2 is really causing me some grief. I just can't seem to stay alive long enough to do any real damage, especially when I come up against Elites. Gear Spells/Skills I've read a few other threads I could find and I've dropped damage and life in favour of movement speed and life regen but it doesn't seem to have done much. Movement speed however I'm only at 12%. I've tried various other configurations but I just can't seem to stay alive. If anyone can give me some tips, I'd be greatly appreciated. Thank you!Nucleotide9 Jul 31, 2012
Jul 31, 2012 Just made it to inferno..? If u need tips, add me...ive helped so many people get up to ACT 2 without many their even farming ACT 1 and 2 trying to get good drops..! Ive also even dressed a wizard (thanks no1elec, your a nice guy) yesterday for under 6 million and this is what he achieved... - 700 resist all (after buff) - 30k DPS (after buff) - 17% crit chance - 70% crit damage - 35k HP So depending on your luck and our window shopping at the auction House, ill help your character on your budget and get you through to getting good items and hopefully not give up on the game..! Anyways, see you in game...and happy gaming people..! edit - this is also achieved by me giving away some of my items in the STICKY thread at the top, because ive got much stuff its taking up alot of i might as well help you, plus you will save alot of gold for that dream item you've been eyeing on the AH..!AnonymousOne0 Jul 31, 2012
