Jul 13, 2012 Warning - Do NOT use the AH at the moment! Bought an ammy for 450k and tried to buy a shield (real money I've got stored from selling items on RMAH). Ammy went through. Shield didn't, so I tried again. Didn't get ammy, but gold subtracted. Didn't get shield and it charged me for BOTH attempts! Hoping it gets fixed, but from track record, I've probably lost the gold/cash. Beware!Phoenix10 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Out of Timer Last night in Act 2 Inferno. Hit a champ pack and started killing them, only to come across another champ pack @ relatively the same time. Thus caused the length of the first fight to go "out of time". Happened in the same game on three separate occasions. This is not a case of "we're not ready" (I was in a decent pub group), as the out of timer is intended. This was strictly an epic battle we ended up having to flee from. I'm pretty tolerant of the changes, understanding in most cases why they are made. I DON'T understand the out of timer. Can someone please explain how this is a good idea? I'm really looking to understand why Blizzard did this? It's incredibly frustrating and "unrewarding" when this happens or even worse when you die from it.Zebulun1 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Better game than diablo 3... So I found a game called ArmA 2... There is a mod for it called DayZ. Basically this mod, which has about 10K players and is in Alpha Testing stage, it is awesome. It is what would happen is a Zombie Apocalypse actually happened. You start off the game with nothing. Your mission: To Survive. You have to scavenge for weapons, food, water, medical supplies. You can find other players and team up with them, or kill them. If you die? Start from scratch. It is a FPS multiplayer survivor game on HARDCORE. The map is over 200km^2 and is a Giant FFA with zombies everywhere. You should check it out. Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 SPREAD THIS MESSAGE dear blizzard diablo 3 staff, i have put at least 200 hours into your game and through all this time i have only had 2 legendary's drop (both sucked anyway) and no green item set pieces. i speak for a lot of people saying that--- "you really need to increase the rate at what these items drop at because i am losing interest in this game real fast and it saddens me to see such a game be so limited. open it up more and bring back your interest base. inferno would be beatable if the items that dropped where proper instead of them being crap and having to go spend 500k gold on something worth 100k in the action house."brad68brad1 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Why would we rack up so many hours... On a game we dont like? Well we did like it, we wanted to keep liking it, but we cant afford to. This game doesnt reward you for playing, it just takes and takes. some of that time was getting to 60 :) then before patch 1.3 PPL were clearing inferno act 1 with the gear they worked towards, that took time. Then BAM , all your gear and build are crap after IAS nerf, so back to square 1. That took more time rebuilding, all the while you are defiantly not having as much fun the 2nd time around because it was forced. Then when you get to around 30K DPS 40k HP and 700 resist all and find out thats not enough you have to go back to square 1 AGAIN.... see a pattern here? A time sink? A money sink? Thats how the hours racked up... by now we have enough time invested that waking away would be silly so we hang in there... it takes more time... then we realize we are in a Virtual Casino... This "difficulty" setting is not normal game difficultly, they just crank the dial to retarted to keep selling !@#$ to idiots who will keep going through the cycle... And keep payingLumindae0 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Rakanoth (Nightmare+) Ok so i killed Rakanoth.. after seemingly 50 attempts. I'm playing a Demon Hunter lvl 48 with Templar companion. My gear is nothing fancy and -being my first character- i guess what most people who dont raid the Auction House would have. I gotta say this boss has absolutely NOTHING to do with skill or timing your abilities right whatsoever. I know some people will probably jump in now saying how super easy it was for them etc, maybe they just play a different class that has it easier against Rakanoth or maybe they were just lucky. Cause admittedly when i finally killed him it was a pretty easy attempt, which as i mentioned before was not down to me learning the fight or whatever, it was based solely on luck. And this was only Nightmare.. i cant even imagine Hell/Inferno Here is what i did.. 1) basically spammed all the abilities+runes that have a random stun on them, causing him to not a single time summon his little helpers and rarely charging 2) got lucky dodging one or the other charge and -while my Templar was dead- cleave A fun experience looks different to me. The attacks dont even come in some sort of order by which you could judge whether to vanish or run around or kill adds. In fact on one attempt i had him charge me 3 times in a row Here is what i expected.. 1) Being able to distinguish the god damn animations. How am i supposed to know when he would cast Charge, or throw discs or summon adds if all the preceding animations look exactly the same. If you could do that it would at least be down to your reactive skills to avoid an attack that almost oneshots you. Its good that Bosses actually have those attacks, failing should be punished. But if win or lose only depend on luck i might as well sit on my bed, read a book and flip a coin whether to read on every 5 minutes until i get tails. Dont need to spend 50 bucks on a computer game for that 2) ... just that really. And maybe for the bosses to actually drop some items that you can make use of, but that goes for the whole bestiary in this game.Mathieu22 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Co-op matchmaking So a couple of days ago I played Co op for the first time.... At first it was really fun and fresh, but then some serious "balance" issues became noticable. Background: 1) I was lvl 59 with my barb 2) I was doing quite well in single player, Hell, A3 3) My gear was decent, good for not using the auction house. Issues: 1) 2 of the characters in the game were lvl 60 and litterally 1/2/3 shotting everything before I could even get my chubby ol' Barb up to it. 2) Both of these players, being friendly, dropped seriously dozens of yellows for me.... I was able to replace 3/4 of my gear with vastly better gear.... 3) Later, this started to bother me so I salvaged all of the gear and decided I wouldn't be messing with co op games until I finish soloing inferno.Castrobot4 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Armor + Allres Stealth Nerf So it's been basically proven by some people, which confirms what people have been saying since 1.0.3a - elemental damage is doing more damage than before (due to not properly being affected by armor or resistances). Does anyone have any idea if this is real, and if so, if it has been fixed?Phoenix36 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Dungeon Rebuilder Hello humans My name is Godfrey let me tell you a little story Every morning when i wake up i go to the dungeons, which are my homes & what do i see? Broken barrells, knocked down walls, empty chests, broken vases, broken doors & many many bodies i tire every night fixing the barrels, hanging new doors, filling up chests & welcoming new guests for a evening of fine wine & scrumptious food then as i lay in my bed i hear the terror of my guests screams as YOU evil vermins slay them & pillage my wares you steal my guests belongings & clothing i wake up to blood splattered on the walls, the grooves of blades in the ground & the sounds of the slain guests souls trapped in the dwindling echoes these are my homes you destroy everyday, my pockets are almost bare by having to buy cement, wood & treasure, not to mention the goblins i hire to butle my homes i am just a humble man trying to live peacefully with my friends so i beg you, i plead with you! please leave us at peace GodfreyDaedralord3 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Auction house killed this game Fist I would like to say D2 trading system sucked. There were way too many scammers and it was inefficient to wade through the chat rooms and trade rooms in order to find a decent item to trade. Gold was basically worthless except for gambling for uniques. The problem with auction house is instead of focusing on fixing those issues they decided to build the game around the premise of buying and selling items for either gold or real money. This is not was D2 was about. D2 was about grinding for items, leveling, and playing pvp in to test how far you've progressed. When someone with a credit card can jump in and pwn after just lvling to 60 (which takes a few days) that ruins the game. There is no reason to even want to grind when you know that someone will also have better gear than you just because they spend the money. I can only imagine what pvp is going to look like when it finally rolls out. Everyone. Ppl with the time to play or have been playing will quickly quit because they know someone else will take minutes to buy their gear and quickly beat them. Ppl with money will quit because they spent no time or effort on building their character so they will quickly become bored from lack of competition and investment. It's a lose/lose scenario. If only the developers focused of fixing the problem instead of trying to figure out a new way to squeeze dollars out of their loyal fans this game wouldn't be as broke as is it is. I hope they sort out this mess because I loved the first games. One last word of advice to Blizzard and any other gamer makers out there. Get the marketers out of these games. People play because we enjoy the games you make. If you start adding bull$hit features like the way EA has been doing business you will quickly sink as fast as this game has.chosonman4 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Set items not colorblind-friendly Simple problem: the Yellow and Green used for Rares and Sets are similar enough to each other that I, and likely other colorblind folks, can't tell the difference until after they've been identified. If it could be made a deeper green (or if there's a way to do it client-side) that'd be awesome.H2Ogoldfire1 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 About Game Guide Updates.. So.. Yesterday when the updates were posted i went there to check it out and noticed the point of nephalem valor that says "bosses rewards nv". Since i do not recall any boss giving me 1 stack o at least renewing the existing ones i checked it with the butcher on inferno and effectively killing him does not recharge your 5 stacks... i didnt check without stacks and the other bosses, but i dont think it gives you any. Also, why the butcher, belial, azmodan and diablo "grant" 1 stack if when you change acts you loose them all (or finish the game and change difficulty)? It doesnt make any sense. Any clarification would be appreciated. Thank you and sorry for my english, its not my primary language. ...Till0 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Exit stage left. So I noticed the gold drops dont stink as bad anymore. Thanks for fixing blizz.... On another note I am bidding a peaceful farewell until a content patch is released. I hope blizzard takes the many thousands of suggestions into consideration and really thinks about how to add depth and character to a game that has the foundation in place to be a really good game. PVP looks to be a cool addition, but unless its designed around skills and teamwork rather than items, I dont see it lasting either. Ultimately the same people making hundred of millions in the GAH will be the winners and those with even above average gear will get stomped. Hopefully the PVP arena will just give people non specific gear to even the playing field and instead build the arenas with traps and other goodies to make the game less one dimensional....perhaps buff the other build options within PvP to allow for various play styles. I really wish Blizz the best on this. I was a huge d2 fan and I like d3 even though I have my gripes. Keep pushing content out and keep building the world of d3 into something special. Until I see something that will change the game substantial I think I have about maxed my enjoyment from the game (over 260 hours).profssrfink0 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 I bet Blizzard cant wait till Guild Wars 2 I would bet that Blizzard cant wait till GW2 comes out. it would take of alot of pressure of the D3 not so many people will play it, less people to complain the nerfs and the and game. Saved by the bell !Krogothic1 Jul 13, 2012

Jul 13, 2012 Diablo 3 is awful! Is Path Of Exile better? I think most will agree that Diablo 3 is dead and buried. The game is absolutely terrible in almost every way. I keep hearing about Path Of exile, has anyone played the beta? Is it any good? Thanks in advance!Cypher19848 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Price Controls are never a good idea... Just going to post a very simple message to the developers of D3: price controls are a bad idea. A simple perusing of the commodity auctions, and seeing that nothing is moving, is showing quite definitively that the price controls in place on the Auction House have destroyed the potential of an economy on Commodities. I understand the need to ensure that there is a certain value required in each transaction. I get that. But wouldn't a better way be just to require that value if someone were to purchase? E.G. instead of the price being set by default to a single item being $0.25, a better method would be no price control, but to check out, someone would have to purchase $0.25 worth of that item (example: 25 gems being 0.25 instead of the current system of 1 gem at 0.25). The reality is that this system has destroyed the market. The $1.25 minimum for armor killed that market, and the 0.25 minimum has killed the sale of commodities. Remove price controls. Otherwise the market will continue to be dead.Orsnoire2 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 I'm not leaving the game :) ............ for now any way. Honestly I really enjoyed it the first couple weeks and have hopes, however fantastic they may be, that the game will be improved upon. I'm not playing nearly as much as I was when I got it last month but I did get what I feel is an acceptable amount of fun for what I payed relative to the cost of any other game. Unfortunately this just isn't one that I see myself playing for an eternity as I did with my last online fantasy world game. There are a few games on the way or already in beta that I am going to be trying out soon and they may take me away from D3 but for now, if I hit that brick wall that so many get angry with I don't mind creating a new character and running it up to inferno and then making another one. At least until I have tried all the classes (only WD is left) with different styles of weapon sets and such. My last game was an MMO that I played for six years and ended up with a very close group of friends who eventually ended up getting together irl and hanging out but I just don't see myself playing this one that long. All in all I got a good amount of play time from Diablo 3 but it's not going to be a long term love affair as with DDO.ArkA0 Jul 13, 2012
Jul 13, 2012 Please remove the gem crafting timer !!! So I just sold a 60mil weapon on AH today, and I decided it's finally time to upgrade from Star gems to higher levels. In addition to my few star gems, I bought tons of Flawless square gems and Tome of Secret on the AH and started crafting, and I realized how much of a chore it could be. It took me like forever to final craft 1 radiant star gem! Every time I craft a gem, there's a timer bar filling up, taking a few seconds. All that added up to almost 15 mins just crafting a gem! It's ridiculous! We all know the computer does not have to think at all while doing this. And it's not fun at all! :(ChiChi13 Jul 13, 2012
