All i have to do is go to the auction house is buying cheap 30k gold blues that have 300 dps and face roll enemies in nightmare and hell The game is to easy remove AH or people will quit within 2 monthsTien4 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Blizzard, this is your fault. If I fail school this quarter and end up working part time at an Auntie Ann's Pretzel company to make payments on a 72 pinto that doesn't run because of this damn Diablo game you made that I can't stop playing--I'm holding you personally responsible. You will find all your Pretzels severely lacking in salt.WettyMcPants0 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Log in issue I have a log in issue, just like the Templar shield issue, with error code 30006. But I didnt use followers in game, since Im in pub games. After I alt+F4 close the game when my screen froze, then I can't log in anymore.(I can log in for Euro or Asia server but not America which I was playing) How to solve this problem? Or when Blizzard gonna solve it?Yunxt0 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Level 60 Character gone? Logged in today and my character is completely gone. Tried creating a new hero and hitting "switch hero", but no luck. Anyone have any idea?Sayuri0 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Saving sucks, fix it blizzard :( Unless I am missing something the only way to "save" is to make a checkpoint. You are saved at that spot period. Now if you go on and get items and exp, you still get those when you log back on but all the monsters your cleaned out are back and the map updates you got are gone. why does the FAQ guide book tell me to do 100% of an map, if it`s going to be "black" when i enter the game again? stupid! that the monsters are back is ok, but the rest? WTF? I just spent an hour in a dungeon, when i got that bad feeling you get when you haven`t saved for 1 hour (what happens if my pc crazhes?, or i have to exit the game? I do have a family and life to!!. I was forcing myself to keep going knowing I had to find a checkpoint, even though I was tired and wanted to quit. This is most inconvenient for those of us with a family, life, JOB, etc. Is there indeed no other option for saving?? IF there is not I am afraid I am through with this game before i even have started...a sorely very BIG disappointment from blizzard :( Money back garantee??VanDamme12 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 Lore book organization is a mess Don't get me wrong, I love the game, but the in game lore book and bestiary organization is a complete and total mess. As far as I know, there is only 3 tabs, and no act breakdowns. Within each tab it is sort by most recent, instead of sort by position in the story. Furthermore, there is no way to tell whether you have collected that piece of lore or not with a particular character, and the lore is per character instead of per account. All in all, a much better sorting system could be put in place.achan10580 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Character deleted? Hi everyone I just logged in and my only character was deleted...did this happen to anybody else? Should add that I was only level 14...but all the items I put up for auction are also gone. Somehow the account reset?Communicator0 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 the right to choose how you want to look after playing D3 I think players should be able to make theire chacters how they want them to look. Like we have in world of warcraft instead of a standard appearance for each chacter though I do realize that this dosn't change it entirely it would make the chacter look some what diffrent from everyboddy else,s chacter such as hair style skin color etc and it would be something new and fresh to the game.ericpaul4 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Act IV clear in 35 minutes.. Not going to lie.. I'm pretty proud of this. Undoubtedly not the first.. but on my second run through Act IV I went with a Barbarian.. maxxed out Fury with the damage boost, double-bladed axe and judicious use of Leap, Ground Slam and Furious Charge.. 25 minutes to Izual, clear in 35 ;) May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Vote for having saving options! Blizzard needs to add in the options as in saving while exiting or logging off. Or have like a saving orb back in town instead of running around looking for a checkpoint. Just saying, it would be a better idea.holyndeath1 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 "Too hard this, too hard that"... SHUTUP! Seriously, the game is not TOO hard. The game is perfectly challenging. Slow down, play the game right, build a real character, and then kill the freaking monsters. It is the FIRST week, do not be mad that the game isn't flooded with godly gear. Work up to getting better gear and a better feel for technique and strategy. Yea so I die a lot too, but I understand why.. and it is not TOO much. The killstreak bonuses and what not make it very easy to gain experience, so the harder monsters take some time to kill now.. its not the end of the world.. play the game for the challenge and practice better strategies until you are able to farm good enough gear to move up to the next challenge. Eventually the game will be flooded with godlies and it will be a lot easier, hopefully not much easier though, because the challenge now is what really makes players have to think and figure out techniques to take down big monsters.Hark10 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Sort Character List? I think would be quite useful in different scenario to change the position of a characters in the hero list with an additional key, like click char 1 then shift + click char 2 and switch. Typical example: you create first your main and then all the following alts would get it burried down the list, franckly would be useful in my case. Perhaps there is a combination already? What about you guys?OneTyper0 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 Account Security and Gold Thieves Disclaimer – I am not a GM or Blizzard staff. I am just a player like everyone else. If you are new to Blizzard Games, have not played since D2, or have never played a game with a sellable resource like gold then give this a read. It also never hurts for the vets to brush up and/or offer some tips! As the World of Warcraft Community has known for many years, accounts with WoW on them, and now D3 are sought after by gold sellers. Gold selling is a multi-billion dollar business run by highly organized crime syndicates, often outside of the US. Yes, they want in to your account, they want your gold, and they are very good at getting it. How to protect yourself: *Some of these support articles use WoW examples but the concepts in them apply to any account. 1. Follow all the Computer and Account Security steps here 2. Do not respond to phishing emails and NEVER click on email links, especially if they seem too good to be true (Free D3, Beta access, etc). Always go directly to the Blizzard web site and to your account management directly. If you receive a phishing email, please forward the email to This article explains phishing in more detail as well as how to identify a suspicious email 3. Good security includes keeping software like Windows, Flash, Adobe, your Browser, virus and malware protection up to date; running weekly security scans with both virus AND malware detection software*; and practicing safe browsing habits. -*Note you need to run the malware scanner with D3 login window open and gibberish typed in the fields. Some malware only activates when this window is open. 4. Do not use your email and password on other sites 5. NEVER go to gold selling, power leveling, hacking/cheating, or item selling sites. Do not every use those services either. They will not only compromise your account, they will steal your credit card too. 6. Never share your account. It is against the terms of use and you are responsible for all actions on it or that result from it. 7. Get an authenticator! a. The mobile one is free b. The keyfob is only $6.50. c. The dial in one has been stated to be less secure by Blues so you may not want it.8. Set your account to request the Authenticator on EVERY log in. To do this go to Account Management on the web site and under Security select the option to ask you every time. 9. Accept that even the most diligent person may be compromised. It happens. How to know if you were likely compromised 1. Your gold and/or gear are gone 2. You keep getting logged out when someone else logs on 3. Your character may not be where you left it. Most often it is in Act 1 starting area. 4. You will probably see strange names under “recent players” on your friends list that you do not recognize. How do they do it? 1. I will start by saying that so far Blizzard has NEVER been compromised. They are required to publicly release it if they are so we would see it on CNN. No, staff can’t get to your password either. It is encrypted and they can not see it. Could it happen? Anything can but by law they have to tell us. 2. Hackers get you to respond to a phish OR 3. They manage to get a keylogger on your PC 4. They lie in wait, often for months, for the right time to compromise you – such as a few days after game release. 5. They take your stolen login information and log into your account 6. They sell your gear, go to a low level area, and hand it off to a char on another account. You will often see that char in your recent players list. 7. They charge someone else real money to get your hard earned gold. This is against the terms of use and is bannable. What to do if your account is compromised 1. Secure your PC before starting the recovery process or they will just steal your new passwords again and come back. The link is above! 2. If you are locked out, call Billing or follow these instructions GMs can not help you with account lockout issues. 3. Reset your account and email passwords from a clean PC. They often get into your email too. 4. Get your items restored! This is a GM function so you submit a support ticket via the link at the top of the web site. 5. Be aware that if you are a low level that a rollback may be worse than having to farm your gold and gear again so choose wisely. 6. If your account is compromised it may be used for malicious activities such as gold selling. This can result in a ban. If it can be proven that your account was compromised at the time of the activity then you can get the account back. To do so you will need to appeal via the email provided. If I missed anything then feel free to pipe up! I am sure this is not perfect.MissCheetah5 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Did ads ever mention strictly online game??? I just want to make sure that I'm not reading into this the wrong way here... Please let me know of any advertisement and/or promotional piece that stated D3 was strictly an online game. I could sit here an rant about many issues with the game but nothing will be done about it so there's no point. Only issue I will put up a stink about here is this... There is absolutely no reason why this game should be strictly online... D1, D2 & D2X all had single player local game-play and by not allowing it's players to play solo, locally, on their machine, Blizzard is seriously hindering it's D3 fans the ability to enjoy the game on an individual basis, especially for players with intermittent internet, slow connections, etc. Not to mention when issues arise, such as maintenance, emergency maintenance, etc. I request to make D3 locally solo playable like its predecessors...MrBC8 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Boss Rush Mode? Instead of having people run through the game and skipping the content, why not have a boss rush mode? Reduce drop rates, but you get straight to the bosses. What do you guys think of the idea?Bibbaly4 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Korean sever block the other asains here is the video I am from Taiwan, and i am here to talk about the ASIA server. I REQUIRE AN OFFICIAL RESPONSE. According to the official saying, the Asia server is mainly for players form Korea, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, and I AM ONE OF THE PLAYERS FORM Taiwan, which means that i should have the rights to access the Asia server as other players can. But what i observed is that people from Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao are unfairly treated in this server. The time needed for players with these 3 places' IP to queue for entering a game is MUCH MUCH LONGER than players with Korean IP. Also, players with these three places' IP are frequently kicked out of the game while players with Korean IP do not have this problem. Talking without evidence is kind of stupid. So, some Taiwanese players did some simple "experiments" to reveal these unfair matters. They tried to use some software to somehow change their Taiwanese IP to Korean IP, and ridiculous things happened. They first tried to log in using Taiwanese IP, their original IP. It takes about an hour for them to finish queuing and enter the game on average. And then they changed their IP to Korean IP. Guess what, two minutes, or even less. Do not blame it as a coincidence, my dearest Korean Blizzard, we tried thousands of times, and the same thing still happened. What's more, here is my friend's own experience, and i was watching this happened. So my friend entered a public game at around 17:00 (16:00 in Korea), there were two players with Korean names. He played normally, but suddenly, he was disconnected, so we went to the forum (A Taiwanese forum) and see what's happened. All the people said they were disconnected too, so we thought the server may be under maintenance. It's fine, we understand that. BUT, when we logged in again, the two Korean players were still playing, just like nothing happened! I am not a racialist. I am not against Korea. BUT, THIS MAKES ME WONDER, that are you, Korean Blizzard, blocking our IP and limiting the number of non-Korean players? I do hope I am mistaken, but with these evidences, I cannot help but suspect. Please give us a official response. This is a ASIA SERVER, we, as the players form Taiwan, Hong Kong and Macao, it is no doubt that we have the rights to access and enjoy the server entirely, and fairly. Thank you.KesjiaV1 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 so inferno diablo killed..... what happened to months blizz? these difficulties don't ramp like the old one did. seems like you just scaled damage instead of how you did in D2. you don't even loose resistances per difficulty. in hell D2 you started with -100 resistances to all elements. So..... i know its not a full clear of inferno, but still killing all the bosses can't have been easy. Just saying that after your hype about how hard it is going to be and how you are going to need to gear up just to play inferno you were VASTLY over exaggerating your claims.Archangel26 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 Damage or damage modifier? I don't effing understand the stats in this game, it's like they made it so simple it's confusing somehow. Is it better for me as a witch doctor to dump tons of intelligence gear on my character or go entirely for damage increasing gear? Is there a correlation between the "damage increased by" and "damage" stat? Is it better for me to equip a 100 dmg weapon and have 500% damage increase or equip a 50 damage weapon and have 600 damage increase? It seems really god damn stupid that using daggers and mojo's is worse than just carrying a wizard staff for witch doctor.Bishop1132 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 Suggestion: Map Hi there! Am i the only one who thinks the map is very uncomfortable? Why is there no "clickthrough" ? I hate hammering on TAB to see the map AND move. Please give an option where you can click through the map like in D2. Or - Hold an button (like alt) and then move the map with mouseclick will be fine. Sorry for my bad english ;) Greetz from germany.Nordwind6 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 AH Question Not sure where I would ask this, figured I'd try here. When selling gems on the AH, does the AH sell them individually for you, then give you the bulk amount, or would you have have to split it up? I ask because I have a large stack of gems that won't sell, so I'm thinking a person has to actually buy that amount, rather then it allow you to sell them individually...Tramik1 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Please make 4 player public games more common Title says it all. The whole point of this game is to max out your group and max out the amount of monsters you're killing. I'm tired of being forced to play as part of a duo. As others have pointed out, the only time you really catch 3 or 4 people games is in the beginning or ending of an act. Please fix it so it tries to pour people into a game instead of just splitting everyone off into little duo games.Desecrator1 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Error 3006 This Reqest has been timed out... I logged out after completing act 1 nightmare, and sense then its been giving this error... anyway to fix it or should I just wait it out and hopefully it fixes itself.. Any help would be appreciated. thanks!Empathie0 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Is PvP going to use pre made gear/matchmaking Because I dont want to imagine what a clustertruck unregulated free for all PvP would be. I know its not the focus of the game, but with proper implementation it could be a fun side activity. Without it PvP will surely be a total disaster.Mesker3 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 boring sidquests. topic pretty much says it all ... I have only seen a handful I admit, but they all reward the same thing: EXP, gold and an item roll of around resplendant chest quality. (One dropped a single potion as a reward--thanks, i guess) D2 had skill points, permanent HP increases, permanent anya resist increases, countess runes, hellforge runes(once per char -- sexy), stat point increases, etc. We can farm gold, exp and items and pots in the metagame ... I know I was suspecting something a little more special for going out of the way like a permanent increase... would slow people down too (At least in the beginning until everyone knows what quests they need to hit for permanent boosts) would a couple +20 stat boots/resist boosts hurt?Starky1 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Usefull to farm Act IV boss normal? Title says it all really, is it usefull to farm Diablo in normal difficulty for some better gear for Nightmare, or doesn't he drop any good stuff? Cause I've killed him 3 times now and last 2 times not even 1 rare item :/NielsD7 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 Loot drop Question When ever I beat a boss I'll often times go back and redo the quest to get a few more drops. One thing I've noticed is that the first time I beat it the drops usually are pretty good w/rares, etc but any time after that the drops are considerably less in quality and no rares. Is this normal or am I just having bad luck. I just started NM and all the way through normal it's was that way.Kaine6 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Why were barbs screwed over? There alot of features you screwed barb over in D3. What happen to the ability to use (2) 2hers, a barb using a 1h sword just seems silly and small. Whirlwind just is'nt the same dueling (2)1h and just (1) 2h. And what happen to barb being the master of weapons, ability to equip all including bow/crossbow and Javelin's. (but not class assign equipment) This effects all classes. What happen to the ability to toggle between 2 sets of weapons? In D2 I always had my Whirlwind set and then my Sword/shield set and would toggle them quickly depending the encounter.ThefinalHero5 May 19, 2012

May 19, 2012 I think I found them. Back in Diablo II, I absolutely loathed the fetishes in the jungle. I was wondering how long it would be before I found something that annoyed me just as much. So far, the desert wasps are at the top of my list this time around. (I never expected to have a shooter in my Diablo.) Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if there were something worse than the wasps. Guess I'll have to keep playing and find out.darniil2 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 My Biggest Problem With Diablo 3 I don't know what to "main". Every single class is so fun that I just can't choose which one I want to stick with. It is between WD+Wiz+Monk for me, all level 25-30. I can't choose one to go into NM with. Post your dilemmas here and what you settled on!Debruz4 May 19, 2012
May 19, 2012 Bring back the ability to name our games! In Diablo 2 whenever you created a public game, you were asked to input a 'name' for the game. This name determined your goal in the game, whether it be to rush along through everything or it's to take it slow and check out the game itself (ie A1 Rush vs A1 No Rush Plz) It seems as though there have been many complaints about people joining a public game, only to find that the other person(s) in the game are rushing through everything. It would be seemingly beneficial to be able to determine that before joining a game and trying to play, only to find out the person you are playing with has a different mindset. This 5-10 minute process could all be avoided were we able to name the public games. TLDR; Bring back the ability to name public games so that everyone knows what to expect when joining.ReallyLonge2 May 19, 2012
