Apr 15 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 Battle.net 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 Battle.net 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 Battle.net 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/>Arcagnion94 Apr 15

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.

13h Account Transfer for deceased? Hi Blizzard, my neighbour died & gave his permission to give his game & account to my younger brother. Is this possible & if it is how do I go about it? I know your policy is no account transfers but I'm guessing under the circumstances this might be the acception to the rule? It would be a shame to throw his game & ROS collectors edition in the trash!Ozgardian9 13h
20h Best hero names So, as I was creating a plethora of different characters, I realised that the most difficult decision I have is naming them. So I'd just like to create a thread where people can post their favorite names :) Let me begin: * SirSchmoopy * SpookyMulder the Witch Doctor Now who can top this? (NB it has to be the names of characters you have actually created)MadIceQueen42 20h
5d Necro build you're looking forward to making For me, I'm curious to see how a thorns pet build in D3 plays out. I always thought the Iron Golem/Iron Maiden builds in D2 were interesting. D3 seems to take this to a new level with the Aberrant Animator passive granting 200% of your thorns to all pets. Stack on Heart of Iron, maybe the other thorns based items, Boyarsky's Chip and rolling thorns on the pet set if it doesn't come with it already and hopefully the results will be effective. I believe Necros start off with the pet set in S11 so hopefully the build is effective.Mugsy2 5d
May 10 How is the New Season treating you? I was convinced last minute by Mugsy's comment about the company when playing seasons and decided to roll a wizard in the new season. Wife and kids were away so like never I had plenty of time to play the game, plus the storms in Brisbane cancelled my soccer games two weeks in a row. Anyway, started with an orb build that was destroying things to pieces up to T11 (thanks kadala for the ancient triumvirate). Then I reluctantly tried the vyr/tals archon build and that was even more OP. Just when I thought things started to improve in my first crafting try after finishing a GR70 I got a primal starfire with CDR roll ...... I could not believe my luck. Now I have been pushing GRs and I think I have a chance to be in the leaderboards for the first time ever; however, family is here and playing time will decrease by a lot. I will try to keep active during this season and if you guys need a quick start I am more than happy to help with power leveling and what not. CheersCex39 May 10
May 8 AUS/NZ Non Season Clan Hey, I've been searching for an Aus/NZ Non-season clan to run GRifts with, do bounties, hellfire bosses, etc. Can't find any so I started a clan. NSRulz For the players who are casual, non season, looking to group and not into 'starting over again'. lol. Thanks!swapto4 May 8
May 5 Fix for D3 Seasonal Laders I would like to submit my idea to fix solo ladders. I want people that do not have the wish to get into competitive 2s 3s or 4s groups to have equal opportunities. Basically the way you get higher grift clears is too get higher level gems this is normally done by runing 4s geting high level gems then pushing solo. I want an option to limit the solo ladder to only people who got their gems or equipment via solo play. If you want to play in groups make a different character but that character can never be used for solo pushing. Please implement this or a version of this. Kindest regards Devs.Titanstar3 May 5

Any of these guys can add you to the group.

May 4 D3 is PTR and BETA the same thing? Hi, Just confirming if Diablo III are using the PTR realms as their beta servers to test the new class? When installing the PTR client i get "sorry, you haven't been invited to play this game yet' or are PTR realms offline in AUS? In the past Blizz usually keep the beta servers and PTR realms different (relating this to WoW)zzwdup2 May 4
May 3 Maintenance Tuesday 02/05/17 *Complete* Greetings all, Apologies for posting this late and you will hate me for the excuse but as my Diablo is set to beta the app doesn't show the maint message and my other means didn't alert me. On Tuesday night (02/05/17) we will be having server maintenance. However for several states it starts at midnight technically it's Wednesday morning. This is expected to last 2 hour total, this is done to maintain the servers and do any general fixes etc. Server down will start at 7:00am PsT which is: Australia & New Zealand times: Tuesday 02/05/17 10:00pm - 12:00am Perth 11:30pm - 1:30am Adelaide, Darwin Wednesday 03/05/17 12:00am - 2:00am Brisbane, Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra 2:00am - 4:00am New Zealand Additional time zones can be found here: http://everytimezone.com/ Note that this maintenance will go for 2 hours, till 9:00am PsT (Barring any unforeseen issues that may extend maintenance). Please 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.Narull1 May 3

Apr 13 So how will you start the necro? Think I posted this a while back but can't find the post. I'm thinking I might do the campaign to get a feel for the necro first as well as enjoy the dialogue as necro. I'm hoping that the patch and character drops a solid two weeks before the season starts. Gives me time to play the campaign first and I'll do seasons in adventure mode.Mugsy4 Apr 13

Apr 8 Important notice - Armoury bug All, Posting this here to warn the AU/NZ community. It appears the devs rolled out the armoury with a few bugs we reported during the PTR. Bugs include: leg gems, normal gems and gear disappearing after making a build switch in the armoury. Ive had this verified by other PTR testers during season 10 who have lost all of the above using the armoury. Personally, Im going to run multiple characters rather than using the armoury until these issues are addressed by the devs. Heres a link to players reporting these ongoing bugs. https://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20753876608 Cheers CC123CC1231 Apr 8
Apr 5 RIP T/HUD? RIP T/HUD? So we all know the program and, use it or not, one thing remains plain. This game has all together too many UI problems and issues with quality of game-play. Tedium and more tedium is the norm, for example everyone's favorite; the endless button crushing in order to pick up materials that we CONSTANTLY ask to be made automatic. So here is a quick heads up for you BLIZZ. Almost all players using the program do so to make this game (ever more steaming heap of dog biscuits) PLAYABLE!!! It's not about pushing GR'S and leaderboards for most players, it's about making it FUN. Watch over the next weeks and months as players abandon the game. Not top line addicts but long time regular players who will abandon the console. Finally, BLIZZ, if you put in place many of the quality of life features of T/HUD but we had no map component for example, we would be so much happier with the game and T/HUD wouldn't be used or required!! Yes BLIZZ, get a grip on player sentiment and loose the grip on your todgers!squiddly25 Apr 5

Mar 31 Greater Rift Crash Donations Thoughts from down under Whilst playing Greater rifts paying premium the game crashes - Losses 3-5 Gem upgrades + $ according to rift level + Experience & Items - given by rift completion. Gain Experience to where the rift crashes - Suggestion. Pay the GRifteRrrrr on the successful completion of the GR on opening the GR Portal. i.e. deduct Rift Key and $ when the rift is closed and the items, gem upgrades and Gold is awarded. This is a fair trade - taking the payment prior to delivery and not delivering is not in the spirit of the game. LOL If your game front end - connection or gaming device is experiencing issues at least the player is not expensively punished by paying up front. Your thoughts fellow NephalemsAndroid5 Mar 31

Mar 23 Random Discussion Thread RDT created for all those random thoughts you have. If this thread serves no other purpose, I hope that it takes everyone's mind away from any negative posts. My random thought. I noticed that the forum no longer shows the username of the person who posted last in a thread. I find this change really annoying, and have no idea why this was removed. Also happy to say that I am enjoying D3 again after a long break. I have been playing Overwatch since launch, and it has been the only game to get me away from D3 for longer than a week. But being a salty !@#$%, I needed a game to play when I was raging too hard at incompetent picks, people do not understand that it is a team game. Anyway, its fun to be back and hopefully the nercomancer comes sooner than last quarter of the year.Waz34 Mar 23
Mar 22 Maintenance Tuesday 21/03/17 *Complete* Maintenance is long complete and patch 2.3 is now live! https://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/20635663 ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Greetings all, It's been a while! (beatcha Mugsy lol) but tonight Diablo (and all Blizzard games) will be having maintenance. On Tuesday night (21/03/17) we will be having server maintenance. However for several states (god we have to many time zones) it starts at midnight technically it's Wednesday morning. This is expected to last 2 hour total, this is done to maintain the servers and do any general fixes etc. Server down will start at 7:00am PsT which is: Australia & New Zealand times: Tuesday 21/03/17 10:00pm - 12:00am Perth 11:30pm - 1:30am Darwin Wednesday 22/03/17 12:00am - 2:00am Brisbane 12:30am - 2:30am Adelaide 1:00am -3:00am Sydney, Melbourne, Hobart, Canberra 3:00am - 5:00am New Zealand Additional time zones can be found here: http://everytimezone.com/ Note that this maintenance will go for 2 hours, till 9:00am PsT (Barring any unforeseen issues that may extend maintenance).

Mar 18 Unstable Latency ANZ? Anyone else on Anz getting unstable latency. Currently pushing gr99/100 and ping is stable on 36ms but spiking up sometimes as high as 300+ and it's impossible to play at this level with a ping that high. So I guess what I'm wondering is the high ping Bnet server is Australia or my connection. I'm on a 100/40 nbn fttp connection and I'm connected directly to the modem so as to eliminate the router. I know blizz has been doing bans today and my connection usually has no issues so does their software that they use to detect cheating impact server performance.GoneHOLLOW4 Mar 18

Mar 17 New necro info is juicy... https://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/20597129 I'm thinking this will retail for roughly the price of the Nova missions pack in SC2 (currently ~AU$22). If they do any more, I think they'll get seriously slagged for overpricing for a game that's seriously in need of more content, especially after players have to fork out for the base game and ROS. Speculation is high for the 'and more' comment RE the major content pack being released at the same time as the necro. Those in game micro transactions rumours are running high. I personally would like to see micro transactions for cosmetics, character slots, and stash tabs but definitely not the xp boosters. Here's hoping.Mugsy20 Mar 17

Mar 10 Wildlands - bounties done right I played the Ghost Recon Wildlands open beta last weekend and I must admit, it feels like D3's bounties but done right. Don't get me wrong, having a reason to run out to the game world in D3 is nice but bounties are over all too quickly and have nothing all that engaging about them. Whether the new game director is working on D3's second xpac, I hope they take into consideration that the current A1-5 bounties get tedious to do and any new Acts in Adventure Mode look at something new with some proper questing before fast travel is enabled (I'm thinking a new Act based on each class' homeland and even D2 class homelands). On the note of Wildlands, is anyone here picking it up?Mugsy4 Mar 10

Feb 28 Download/Reinstall. RoS disc download info Hey all, Thanks to Blizzard ANZ I was able to get a copy of the RoS disc and try out complete reinstalls to find out what is needed if you plan on installing via the disc or the current downloaded client. Please note if you are currently playing D3V in 2.0 you won't need to put the RoS disc into your computer at all. Just upgrade your account with the CD key and everything you need has already been downloaded from Blizzard, it is only when reinstalling or if you haven't played in ages that you need the disc. I actually formatted my system before doing this to make 110% sure that there was no old files so it's a completely fresh install. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installing from the RoS disc Download quota used: 7508mb The game will pull files from the disc (it's not useless!), however the game did go gold(into print) before the last several patches so it needs to download those files. I monitored the battle.net installer and files with Netlimiter to make sure of how much it downloads, you can see the results here: http://imgur.com/a/X137k ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Installing from the downloaded client Download quota used: 14,910mb As you can see this is twice the size of the disc install so if you have the disc and need to install fresh it is the better option to save quota. I monitored the battle.net installer and files with Netlimiter to make sure of how much it downloads, you can see the results here: http://imgur.com/a/JW7gG ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Helpful tip, if you ever plan on formatting or changing computers (or have a friend who wants to play but can't download so much) you can simply copy and paste the entire Diablo folder to a USB etc as a backup and then paste it back and it will still work. Hope this helps some people, I had a couple ask. I know it's not ideal because of ANZs download quotas but at least you can pick up your copy of RoS at 9am Tuesday and download whats needed beforehand. Also Blizzard have announced that you will not need to relog on Tuesday when the server comes up, you will just have to change quests to Act V or set yourself up to kill Diablo so you can progress once RoS is live. So log in early and avoid queues! ________________________________________________ Twitter: @Narull | ANZ Diablo III MVP http://www.blizzposts.com - Keep track of all Official Blizzard posts.
