Aug 25 How to connect to US/ANZ servers - UPDATE Hi all, We have had feedback that some players wish to manually connect to either the US or ANZ Diablo game servers. Before we go into the process on how to connect to a specific gamer server, there would only be a few reasons you would wish to do this. If you are in the rare minority based in ANZ whose IP does not automatically connect to the new Australian game servers. If you are located outside of Australia and New Zealand and connect to US hardware but wish to try out the Australian servers to see if your latency is improved. If you are currently playing on ANZ servers but wish to join the larger North American public player pool and you don’t mind the associated higher latency. First up, make sure your Blizzard game launcher is running and you are logged into the application with your server set to The Americas. This will ensure your client will always be up to date. ********** UPDATE ********** Prior to this post it required a customized shortcut to be made. Now with the updated client you can add the correct strings into the Blizzard app itself, removing the requirement to create a short cut. Think it's technical? Well it's really quite simple! Narull has uploaded some screen grabs that make the process easy. Here is his post: 1. Close Diablo III and open the launcher, click the little arrow up the top left and select 'Settings': http://i.imgur.com/I8FcagD.jpg 2. In the new window select 'Game Settings': http://i.imgur.com/QO5GEw3.jpg 3. Tick the box for 'Additional command line arguments' and in the new command line put the following: If you want to always connect to the ANZ Server: OnlineService.Matchmaking.ServerPool=AU1 If you want to always connect to the US Server: OnlineService.Matchmaking.ServerPool=Default So it should look like this: http://i.imgur.com/ogjHSef.jpg Click 'Done' and run Diablo III, BAM done! It's that simple. ********** Below is the old method that is not required ********** To manually tell the game which server you wish to play on you will need to create a customized shortcut. Go to your folder that has Diablo III: Reaper of Souls installed. The default for this on a Windows PC is C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III Right click on Diablo III.exe and click ‘create a shortcut’. Right click on the newly made shortcut and choose ‘properties’. Go to the Target field, it should say something similar to this: "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\Diablo III.exe" You will need to add one of the commands below after "C:\Program Files (x86)\Diablo III\Diablo III.exe" in the Target field. To manually connect to the Australia servers add the line -launch OnlineService.Matchmaking.ServerPool=AU1 To manually connect to the US servers add the line -launch OnlineService.Matchmaking.ServerPool=Default So for example, if I wanted to make sure I connected to the US hardware, even if I’m in Australia, my shortcut target field would end in: ...\Diablo III\Diablo III.exe" -launch OnlineService.Matchmaking.ServerPool=Default *Note there is a space between Diablo III.exe" and -launch Click ok. The shortcut you have made will now be the method you use to launch the game if you wish to manually connect to a specific game server. Keep in mind once you launch the game through this shortcut you will need to log in with your username and password. If you run the game through the Blizzard game launcher the changes will not be in effect, you will need to use the shortcut to ensure you connect to a different game server. Keep in mind creating this shortcut is not something we would recommend to everyone but it may be helpful for some. See you in Sanctuary! <em/>Arcagnion96 Aug 25

Jun 20, 2015 Officially(unofficial) ANZ ingame Community Update: With the latest patch you don't have to rejoin chat every time you logout and back in, so join chat and be friendly. =D Greetings fellow ANZ players, We now have an officially(unofficial) ANZ Community ingame and I hope everyone will join so we can play and chat together. I've put this guide together so that people can see some of the FAQ I'm getting and have a good guide for how to join in case you where unsure. Q: Why a community instead of a clan?A: Clans have a member cap of 120 but Communities are unlimited, plus you can only join 1 Clan but can join 5 Communities at the same time. Q: Is there an ANZ clan I can join as well?A: There is no 'ANZ' named clan, however several other players have taken it on themselves to create ANZ Clans for smaller 'nit' groups of players, seek one out and I'm sure they will be happy to have you. Q: I've seen you in game with a <ANZ> Clan tag! You just said there wasn't one so why?A: I admit to making an ANZ Clan, I did so to reserve the name so that people wouldn't get the Clan and Community confused and then miss out on joining up with a lot of ANZ people. Within 24 hours of release we already had over 120 members in the Community, so as you can see a Clan wouldn't be enough. I will be keeping the ANZ named Clan on my Best Friends(who doesn't play D3) account just to keep the name so people don't get confused. Q: How do I join the Community?A: Below I have done an in depth guide in joining the Community and joining chat. Joining the Community 1. Log in to Diablo 3 and look to the bottom right of your screen, you will see an icon with a chat bubble, this is the Clans & Communities tab. http://i.imgur.com/r7K6Hno.jpg 2. Finding a Community is down the bottom of this window, this is where most make the small mistake of looking at the top which is for Clans. http://i.imgur.com/AvNCmdn.jpg 3. Make sure you are set to English in the dropdown box, not English(SEA). http://i.imgur.com/kSOC1OQ.jpg 4. Search for ANZ, the ANZ clan should show first, however if it doesn't you can click on Communities without joining them to display it's leader and officers, I am the Leader and I have selected a few trusted ANZ members as officers(more to come). http://i.imgur.com/lSJZs3B.jpg 5. Once you have hit Join you will have the ANZ community in your Clans and Communities window. Don't forget to join chat so you can discuss things with your fellow members. http://i.imgur.com/01zI4LX.jpg 6. If you click on the ANZ Community you will bring up the Community Information window, this will display messages from officers in the News section(I'll be trying to post maint etc here). Unfortunately due to a database issue because we have over 100 members the Roster will only display Officers so you cannot see a full list of members. http://i.imgur.com/7a5MJC6.jpg Currently there is no / command for Community chat, if you're talking in another channel and wish to talk in Community chat you will need to open the Clans and Communities window and click the Chat icon. http://i.imgur.com/cDAemso.jpg [/b][/i] I hope this helps and I look forward to seeing you all ingame in the Community, if you ever have any questions or issues feel free to post or message me ingame. ________________________________________________ Twitter: @Narull | ANZ Diablo III MVP http://www.blizzposts.com - Keep track of all Official Blizzard posts.

2d S12 chat How is everyone's S12 going? For the first time in many seasons, I leveled my character the old fashion way. Grouped with Cranky and Mugsy for a while I think on Friday but didn't get to finish the 70 grind until Saturday. After around 5k shards I finally found the HOTA bracers, found a GoJ quite easily (first rare upgrade infact) and this morning got Fury of the Ancients shoulders. Found the second Istvan's sword too, and I'm rolling away now. Only sitting at around P230, but I have had fun so far. Will be on again tonight to level Ryo if he finally logs.Waz180 2d
2d 7 Sins Clan - Limited Spots as at 08nov17 Hi ANZ, We’re a casual clan that enjoys a lot of banter, teasing and laughing, but all in good spirit. That being said, we also have quite a wealth of knowledge within this clan, whether you’re new to the game, back from hiatus, or a veteran, you’ll find a place here. Any of these guys can add you to the group. In order of awesomeness: The 8th Sin Ryoka#1646 Pussag@ys (in alphabetical order) Bastich#1850 Derf#6334 Highlander23#6644 Hodor#6703 NickBaldyM#6414 Mugsy#6765 Oakover#6193 Soul#1481 Sweetpea#6404 Waz#11929 So where the bloody hell are ya? :> To the Pussag@ys: Sometimes life will get the better of us and we just have to attend to irl stuff, and that’s cool. But to keep the flow of the clan running smoothly with adding new players, culling inactives, helping ingame with plvls or answering queries/builds, we need pussag@ys ingame in real time. In light of this from season to season, I may rotate officers in and out of serivce. Don’t worry, I will be open and upfront and will speak to you before hand (if opportunity permits). Waz was a great example of this. One of the longest standing officers but he made a baby last season and had to be a dad so I rotated another officer in to fill his shoes in that time. He took like it champion. And now he’s back in the ranks! What I’m trying to say is, if I rotate you out, don’t get mad or offended. You still maintain you lifetime member flag. Just go and do your irl stuff. When I see you back in full force, you will eventually get rotated back in. Happy to discuss if you have any questions about this matter. Cheers C*nt, RyokaRyoka1158 2d
2d Hummus Vege Chips verdict At least for the lemon sesame flavour, for those in chat who were wondering about this, they're not bad. I wouldn't say they're the most flavoursome chips... kinda like prawn crackers but a notch or two up in terms of flavour. For 'healthier' chip options, I personally prefer Woolies' Macro range such as the tzatziki lentil corn chips below... https://www.woolworths.com.au/shop/productdetails/573472/macro-lentil-corn-chips-tzatziki-gluten-free Don't knock em... they're great sustenance for day 1 of seasons.SwankyDevil4 2d
Feb 6 The Fallen <Star> - Recruiting My friends and I recently started a new small clan "The Fallen <Star>". We have a couple of high level players and some more casual players (primarily SC).

Jan 25 Issue with lagg Hi all, i'm currently experiencing lagg in this game, Latency is around 25 to 28ms, I installed current GPU driver (Nvidia), Still having issues, PC is high end ish, ie GPU is a g-force 980ti etc, water cooled blah blah, Running out of things to try... Any help would be good Cheerssteve29 Jan 25
Jan 19 Think there will be a PTR? I'm leaning more towards 'no' in that: - they had nothing to show at Blizzcon - we're past what would normally be the halfway point for the game which is when PTRs historically have started I do hope that they will do a minor PTR with a few changes that 2.6.1 didn't capture. I'm thinking more along the lines of at least one revamped/new item for each class like what it use to be. Something along the lines of: Barbarian: Some of the generator based mighty weapons could do with a buff to work better with LON (since there's no generator set). Or they could rework IK to work with generators. Crusader: Darklight reworked to bring back the Firestart build (i.e. needs a damage modifier). I also think Justice Lantern may need a slight rework to be viable for more builds. Demon Hunter: Crashing Rain and Strafe weapons needs a damage buff. More importantly, Rapid Fire needs to be made relevant again. I'm thinking Sinseekers need a rework to turn RF into a generator so it synergises with Nats. Damage buff also needed. Monk: Band of Rue Chambers reworked to include a damage reduction element in addition to the increased spirit generation. Monk's are over reliant on Unity. Necromancer: Maltorious' Petrified Spike to turn Bone Spear into a generator so it can be spammed... damage needs to be rebalanced but as it is, we have two Corpse Lance sets and neither Bone Spear nor Bone Spirit are used for any endgame builds Witch Doctor: Needs a damage reduction ring. Like monks, WDs are over reliant on Unity. Rhen'ho flayer could also do with a damage buff to make a toads build relevant again. Wizard: Wizard hats need a rework... at least make one of them apart from Swarmi useful and synergise with existing sets. I kinda want the Mirror Image one to be better with them channeling when you do and against the same target. If there's nothing new for S13, lets hope that a major rework patch like 2.6.1 will drop for S14.SwankyDevil18 Jan 19

Jan 8 Darkening of New Tristam Just in case you missed it last year, the event is now live. Please note that only the pre-cursor event is now live, i.e. hunting for cultist for tomes that will net you the angel portrait frame. The portal to the Diablo homage dungeon is still not live until 4 Jan (US time) or more likely than not will be on 5 Jan (Aussie time). Happy New Year everyone.jtcdgroup6 Jan 8

Dec 14 For all those jaded by D3... I just heard that Titan Quest will have a new expansion, with Nordic influence. TQ is one of my favourite ARPG, ranking up there with D2 and Diablo. The franchise was taken over by THQ, but the original was developed by Iron Lore, if you don't know Iron Lore had developers who were previously in Blizz North. http://www.pcgamer.com/a-new-titan-quest-expansion-takes-players-into-the-realm-of-the-norse-gods/ Apart from the name, I really saw TQ as the natural progression of what Diablo should have been with the dynamic skill system. The game had flexibility and diversity in the skill trees.jtcdgroup15 Dec 14
Nov 30 HC armory not linked to character Topic says it all... but what would it take to make it happen? Unless you are happy to play HC and not push the limits, it can be frustrating to set up a few builds on the one character - RIP - then have to rebuild your builds in the armory again for on new character... same gear... same stash... seems a bit silly reallyNickBaldyM5 Nov 30

Nov 7 S12 start day... So it's gonna start on a Friday in AU/NZ again... 10th Nov. Won't have the day off as, if things go my way, I'll already have Mon to Wed off that week. Might jump in on Friday night, do the challenge rift to get some shards and try my luck getting the HOTA bracers and band of might on a lvl1 toon to cube and maybe get a power level if anyone's offering. Saturday I'm out for the first half of the day tending to mum so I don't expect to start playing till that evening. How's everyone else tracking?Mugsy23 Nov 7
Nov 6 Small changes you'd like to see... I'm enjoying 2.6.1 so far but there are still some skill mechanics that annoy me. I think the change to Soul Harvest refreshing all stacks every time you use it is a good thing and would like to see more of these little changes make their way into the game. 1. Skele mages for Necro... would be great if the expiration of all mages would reset upon casting mages. I was just looking at Anthony Evans latest vid where he gives a tip on how mages snapshot damage. The above change would synergise with the snapshotting and I feel this would be a nice balance between what we have now and having mages potentially last too long. I'd be happy with casting mages once every 8-10sec to keep them up but with the potential to lose all them if I missed it. The mages will still be lasting longer than they do now. Even with the buff icon, there's like a 2-3sec window before you need to recast which is still spammy gameplay. 2. Marauders for DH support Rapid Fire... there's just no love for Rapid Fire at the moment and if they're keeping M6 the way it is (i.e. it fires when you do, rather than auto firing like what so many players would like to see), adding Rapid Fire to it would be so much fun. 3. Star metal kukri gains fetish damage bonus on the legendary effect... this was a godly item back in the day but it's next to useless now. With the recent zuni buffs, gargs is well supported but a pure fetish build isn't viable. I believe SMK is the best item to put the fetish buff on as it'll cater for both a melle fetish build as well as potentially buff Carnevil builds. 4. Maltorius' Petrified Spike: make it convert Bone Spear to a generator please. May need to tone down the damage buff but it's so unsatisfying not being able to spam Bone Spear. 5. Spirit Barrage: make it count as a channeling skill. Would be good if Zunimassa 6pc had a damage buff to channeling skills too so that it would feel that bit more satisfying to cast your spender as it won't be solely for tagging enemies. 6. Shadows set: include a buff for Chakram, Bolas and Grenades on the 6pc... yeah I know, we're sick of grenades dominating DH builds but as a means of giving Shadows some options for trash clearing, adding a buff to Chakram, Bolas and Grenades on Shadows 6pc set would give us some options. 7. Darklight: needs a damage buff to Fist of the Heavens. 8. Rhen ho flayer: needs a buff to toads on it. 9. Many Wizard Hats need a rework. Archmage's Vicalyke... Why not make Mirror Images last until they die and they cast your channeling skills when you do? The Magistrate: too gimmicky and Frozen Hydra isn't competitive. Maybe just make a nova of some sort cast once a second based on the element of the hydra so we can add in some AOE damage that way. 10. Delsere's Magnum Opus: Please add Electrocute to the set. That skill is hardly supported at the moment and DMO is the set I feel is best suited to support signature spell/generator builds.Mugsy15 Nov 6

Nov 5 Skill activating Hi Guys from Blizzard, I have an issue that want to discuss with you. I play Demon Hunter last season and kind of frustrating issues i have are that I have to bang on the keyboard like ironmonger to activate ready skill and when the skill is ready and I press to activate is not reacting to my command(not always). Second when I use vault my DH is acting strange instead of vaulting towards the direction of my mouse pointer is going back and forward with one time pressing that key, or it is not reacting again on my command to vault. This issue with hitting the keyboard with hammer to activate skill suck bad time (I have expensive laptop it is not just some old crappy keyboard we are talking!)and it is not only with my DH, it is with all heroes type. Playing long hours its like gym to my fingers by hitting as hard as i can my keyboard to activate the ready skill. I do not need to damage my laptop keyboard, why it can be much simpler and easy to activate the skill by light press of it and then the cool-down of it to start?!?Rejev3 Nov 5

Nov 4 What else do you play outside of D3? So, what other games do you guys get into when not playing D3? (like now... in that lull before a season starts) I use to put a bit of time into HOTS but I think I've got burn out with that game just doing Daily Quests. I only have so much time to play games these days and having to spend so much time doing dailies in order to gain enough gold to purchase future characters is something I'm pretty sick of. Recently got myself a SNES mini so am enjoying some retro gaming atm.Mugsy19 Nov 4

Oct 19 AUS/NZ Discord Community Hi all. New season is coming up and I can see lots of people are looking for active clans and players to play with. I have a few friends who will be joining me on the new Hardcore Season since it's been a while that we've played we thought it would be a good time to give it a go again. I know there are a few Diablo communities and servers around, though I thought it would be a good idea to put one together that focused on AUS/NZ both HC and non-NC specifically so that we can play within our timezone. https://discord.gg/ypTjsWC Anyway try to keep it short the link above is a direct invite to the Discord server I started, anyone and everyone is welcome. If you're keen on HC hit me up! Cheers Regards, Chopnblok#1675Chopnblok3 Oct 19
Oct 19 “3 leg race” community challenge So if you’re like me and are somewhat bored with grinding GRs for a <10% chance of upgrading gems or trying to shave a few seconds off your PB, here’s something to try. The challenge can be done against friends/clan mates, or, you prefer the Principal Skinner approach, attempt the challenge yourself then try to beat your previous effort the next time. Overview of rules: Firstly, the race is a 10hour challenge for a fresh character which you can play leisurely. The change character screen will show you how long you’ve been playing that character for. The aim is to get as high as you can in GRs using only 3 legendaries at any given time that was found by that character in those 10hrs. Secondly, before you start, you will need topped up resources and upgraded blacksmith, jeweller and mystic. You don't want to worry about mats or gold. Move all your gems (regular and legendary), ramaladni’s gifts, and GR keys out of your stash and onto another character. Thirdly, Kanai’s cube and the shared stash is not to be touched… only the three main artisans, vendors, and Kadala can be used and you only have access to your inventory for storage. You cannot create legendaries using the cube nor select legendary powers from it. Lastly, you can craft rares, legendaries and set items from the blacksmith and jewellery but only one Hellfire legendary item can be used at any given time. Process to play: 1. Create a fresh HC character. Must be HC as you have to decide between damage boosts or damage mitigation amongst the limited number of items you’re allowed to use. No SC as everyone would just go glass cannon. 2. Grind away at rifts to lvl70 to unlock GRs and keep hitting GRs up until the 10hr mark. 3. When you drop new legendaries, you must decide if you are to replace an existing equipped legendary with it or not. If not, it is to be salvaged… no hoarding the item in your inventory. 4. At any given time, your character is to only have 3 legendary items equipped. This includes crafted sets. All other slots can be padded out with rares 5. 6pc class sets, 2pc jewellery and 2pc class weapon sets are not to be used and are to be salvaged immediately. Blackthornes is allowed but, again, you’re limited to just 3 items from the set at most. 6. Rares can be kept in your inventory as a means to quickly pad out gear slots when you equip a new legendary not of the same item type as the one you’re replacing. But legendaries cannot be kept if you don’t intend to use them immediately. 7. You are free to change skills at any given time to leverage off your loot. Remember, these community challenges rely on honesty. Post below how high in GRs you go in the 10hrs! GL and HF!Mugsy5 Oct 19
Oct 16 Players on ANZ server and US server So, a player on the ANZ server can't play with players on the US server? I know both are American region (shared hero list). Player counts are different if you change the servers. On T4 Adventure mode (Rifts), 50+ games found on US server, 0 for ANZ server. If it is true, then that is sad. My ping is better on the ANZ server.Insanity3 Oct 16
