Mar 4 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 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 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': 2. In the new window select 'Game Settings': 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: 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 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/>Arcagnion93 Mar 4

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. 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. 3. Make sure you are set to English in the dropdown box, not English(SEA). 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). 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. 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. 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. [/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 - Keep track of all Official Blizzard posts.

15h 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 15h
18h 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!squiddly6 18h

1d Maintenance Tuesday 21/03/17 *Complete* Maintenance is long complete and patch 2.3 is now live! ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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: 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.Narull5 1d

If you do decide to create a proxy facebook account just to entre this group, thats cool :> Just post on this thread first so that I have heads up.Ryoka66 3d
5d 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 5d
5d cheers, you know to whom.from noob. lol Cheers. But a thankyou for getting on my casual playing case. Dcs, Ausares, Ryoka, Septimus, know I have forgotten your Tags. None the less , thankyou for getting me to S9 600+p and to destroyer.. Which is a plus in my book. :)motiewarrior4 5d
6d New necro info is juicy... 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 6d

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 installer and files with Netlimiter to make sure of how much it downloads, you can see the results here: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 installer and files with Netlimiter to make sure of how much it downloads, you can see the results here: ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- 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 - Keep track of all Official Blizzard posts.

Feb 27 Ban wave just happened? Was there a ban wave recently? I was ranked over 200 for DH seasonal for GR84 last week. Now I'm ranked 146.jtcdgroup6 Feb 27
Feb 24 Hope this means more tabs/slots... Saw on PTR forum but not everyone here reads that forum. Might be for the chinese version of the game but I wonder why it's in English then. Could be setting up the game for in game purchase of the Necro plus other stuff. I sure hope it's an in game store for cosmetics, stash tabs and character slots. Considering I paid about AU$20 for 6 stash tabs in PoE and that D3 requires a retail purchase first, I'd be happy to part with AU$10-15 for 5 tabs. Would instantly get my stash up to at least 20 tabs so I can offload excess gear not needed for any builds I'm currently playing with and keep it to two SC toons for each class (assuming I have 3-4 builds per character which looks more than plausible). Would leave 3 character slots for HC or Seasons then and if I could buy more slots, that would make life even sweeter.Mugsy0 Feb 24

Feb 16 Primal Ancients The grind just got grindier. From the PTR patch 2.5.0 notes: Primal Ancient Items Legendary and Set items will now have a chance to roll as Primal AncientThese items are more rare than Ancient items and have increased stat ranges No mention of how exactly rare they are. Ancients are 1 in 10 chance for regular legendary. So what could Primal Ancients be, 1 in 50? ie for every 5 Ancients you can now expect 1 to be Primal.PoPoPoado30 Feb 16
Feb 14 Clan Leaders please Listen Good evening or good morning Tonight I was kicked from a clan that I was a founding member and a clan officer in the beginning. I had not been in the clan for 100% of the time due to personal reasons, at one stage I left because I wanted to focus on hard-core and the clan that I belonged to a limited hard-core members. Other times I left because I knew that real-life commitments meant that I would have limited time to play and the clan was generally full and I did not want to take up a place. In real life I have been a placard waving bleedingheart. I cannot change this because this is what makes me what I am. Over the last couple of weeks there has been a message of the day that has offended some people mainly one. Being of the nature of not letting someone that is feeling ostracised because they have no voice because they are not in the clain any longer, I feel the need to pick up their burden. During the week the clan leader promised to change the message over the weekend because they had been feeling that they were being tough on the subject. When I logged in tonight's Sunday the message had not been changed so I asked the question politely why was it not changed? Instantly the message of the day had changed. I personally logged in and out to see what the message had changed to. In reality only one word had changed but the message was exactly the same. I merely asked the clan leader if he thought that this was a joke? considering that his actions was offending some people. I was kicked from the clan. I was kicked from any right to give a review. Maybe something I said was wrong maybe something he said was wrong. The fact of the matter is we possibly both could be wrong. The fact of the matter is he still has the clan and all the connections to play with. I myself personally am ostracised for speaking out for somebody who was offended by message, that I personally feel that I respectfully ask that question. I personally feel that I do not want to join the clan again. As I do not want to join a clan that can disrespect people openly like this just because they feel like it. We play this game to escape real-life problems. It is inappropriate to have dictators that we have too curtailed to just because they say so. I am personally disgusted by the behaviour of the Caln leader, And personally believe that he should never be in that position ever again. I think my biggest problem was that I put my questions in open clan chat. I did this because I feel we have differences with the leader everything should be open. Also the discussion to remove the offending message was an open chat. But personally I am a total peace as I do not want to belong to a clan that will openly ostracise people from a non-benevolent dictator. Regards lame-duckLameduck51 Feb 14

Feb 4 PTR 2.5 notes are up Decent patch save for the introduction of ... Primal Ancients (PA). Another round of powercreep. A PA can roll over 3,500 dps without roll of % damage or AS. That means you could possibly get over 4,200 dps weapon with % damage and AS rolls. Devs get a clue, no one ask for this. Example of a PA On the plus point, bonus bounty acts have been removed. No more accidental non-bonus claiming in group games.jtcdgroup26 Feb 4
Feb 4 Ancient Primals worth it if this happened... Primal Ancients are only an issue if they are 10% of 10%. i.e. 1%, ONLY from a legendary drop/reforge/craft. What if / why not: Upgrading a rare in the cube gives a Legendary, 10% chance for Ancient, 1% chance for Primal. Then... ReRolling an Ancient gives either an Ancient, or a 10% chance for primal. (Rare > Legendary/Ancient -- Ancient > Ancient/Primal) This would mean that, rather than a 1% chance to get a primal, which has now become Best in Slot (BiS), you end up with a scheme where, once you get that 10% chance for an Ancient, you move to a 10% chance for a Primal. This also means that, once an item reaches Ancient status, you cannot roll it into a downgraded quality. Only Up. Meaning Primal Ancient has real value.Raxxis0 Feb 4

Season 9 journey on PTR posted below They're keeping with the anniversary of D1 theme and we have got to kill the SK in 30 sec for Conqueror and The Butcher in 15sec for Guardian. I think SK might be harder due to having to trigger the fight quickly to get through like 12 sec of animation... Wizards and Monks will be useful. Methinks a Monk to dash across whilst a S6 DH takes down the bonehead quickly.

Jan 30 Non Season Group come join! Hey all, I always tend to play seasons but not this time. I am planning to play non-seasons and trying to see who else plays and is keen to play together. I am in a guild which has few people who play NS and over the last few days I have met few more people who play NS. Just checking if there is more of you guys out there. Feel free to add me or drop your name below and I will add you as a friend. I am not high paragon but close to 700 paragon and I have Helltooth WD(most geared), WW Barb and a ZDPS barb. I am just interested to play with people and happy to make a group with more active people. Looking forward to meeting more people :)Vapourizer1 Jan 30

Jan 26 Fragmented player base... I'm a long-time casual player, but I recently returned to play the anniversary event. I was surprised -- and disheartened -- to see that there are about 10 more difficulty levels than I remember. In short, over the course of a few days, I could not find a single game. I tried in the middle of weekdays, at night on weekends, and in the only difficulties that had anyone playing, they were AFK. I am confused, as it seems to be counterintuitive to add more game modes the smaller the player base becomes. Has anyone else experienced this, or am I the only one solo queueing?Youngblood2 Jan 26

Jan 22 I need a Clan to Join. Anyone recruiting? I live in the USA and I'm on (EST) Time Zone. The problem is; no one in my region stays on from 12 AM - 7 AM (EST). Yes; I'm an Insomniac! LOL :-) I find that people in NZ and AU tend to play around the same time as me because they are roughly 13 - 15 hours ahead (GMT). I need a clan to join; to show me the ropes. I'm looking for a **Laid Back, Friendly Clan*** who resides in either New Zealand or Australia. I am in search of friends who love to play D3 as much as I do. Also I have used the Clan Finder but it doesn't tell you much in what area they reside in usually.soloplayer14 Jan 22
Jan 19 Exile <The Forsaken Ones> looking to recruit Exile <The Forsaken Ones> is looking for the best Oceanic has to offer. Exile is a Seasonal and Non Seasonal softcore based clan hoping to reunite those that were disbanded and others looking for a great clan. As officers formally from <Rogue/OPOG/7S> we look for players that share the same vision and goals as us. We seek players that have a competitive mindset and perfect gameplay. We want players to have a main class and also a class that can compete in the current group leaderboard meta. We look for players that have an in depth understanding and knowledge to their main class, Diablo III game mechanics, and class mechanics. We welcome players that are highly active and are able to learn and adapt quickly. We strive to find players who will capitalize on and contribute to Exile and most of all have fun at the same time. Our clan entry requirement is: Some knowledge of playing the META Frequent player who logs in every week or thereabouts (unless on holidays) (800+ Current Season 9) 1500+ Paragons for dps (Non-Seasons) 1000+ Paragon for zdps plus, (Non-Seasons) GR85+ 4p Season 9 or GR90+ 4p (Non Seasons) top 200 3p OR top 150 2p OR top 100 in a solo leaderboard Otherwise a referral from a current Exile Clan Member is also considerable: We always play in groups with each other to not only make the game more enjoyable for ourselves, but to also help out clan members who need a bit of love on some of their classes.We have a Curse channel available and encourage its use whenever possible. We will accept Season 8 players who have a good track record in previous seasons if they dont meet the requirements due to not playing in the previous season. This will be the only exception. Exile is using Voice Comms on cursevoice. Anyone need help give me a holler.

Jan 17 ADSL2+ Fast Profile Query Hi all, So I'm in Brisbane and am on ADSL2+ with Telstra. I am also on their standard profile and about 1km from the exchange. My usual download is around 15mbps with latency in game of 80 on a VERY good day. Usually around 200 - 300 and sometimes higher. I spoke to a Telstra tech rep and they mentioned I could change from standard profile to Fast profile which approx halves your ping but can lead to more disconnects. Have any of you changed from standard to fast and what was your experience with it? You now have to ask Telstra to do this change. Previously you could change it manually yourself. ThanksDarkWolf10 Jan 17
