Nov 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/>Arcagnion91 Nov 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.

1d Boss Mode (English SEA community) Hey peeps, I've created an English SEA community for those wanting to look for people to do the Boss Mode conquest. Might make it easier to find players wanting to do this easy conquest.Mugsy54 1d
1d Thanks 7 Sins To 7 Sins I have decided to join Exile to try and do some GR pushing in NS. I have really enjoyed my time in 7 Sins but wanted to try pushing GRs in NS since I now have a better laptop for gaming. If people still need help with Seasons such as Boss mode (its quite easy if you have someone who has it already as they can run to next boss while you kill) or Belial in 45 secs, I am happy to help if I am free. Also got 100 sets of machines in NS if people are after hellfire amulets (perhaps when we get Necro!) Just message me on robwin1974#6355 or feel free to add me. Thanks again. Regards Robertrobwin197422 1d
2d 7 Sins Clan - A few vacancies as at 11nov16 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.

5d HOTS cosmetics Was smashing through a few games with rob in HOTS to help him get the HOTS cosmetics in D3. Anyone who's thinking of doing the same, if you're lvl5 or below still, use a recruit a friend link to get a bonus stimpack... basically double xp so it halves the required effort. Here's a friend's recruit a friend link (I got my vulture mount already): https://us.battle.net/account/en/creation/recruit.html?rid=LMBTGVWHPX The stimpack is 5 days only which is more than enough time to get to lvl12... but in case it isn't and you wanna take a break, get to almost lvl10... because at lvl10, you get another 7 day stimpack. That second stimpack will get you from 10 to 12 in half the time again. Use specialists that are good for seiging like Azmodan, Sgt Hammer, Sylvanas, Nazeebo or Zagara. If you don't have time to sit down to play the games and Abathur is available in the weekly rotation, you can play a vs AI game, set him up in your base and symbiote an AI team mate that's good with surviving (tanks, heroes with good sustain like Raynor, etc) and let the game play out. In most cases, the afk time won't kick you and you'll rack up some xp whilst afk (don't do in QuickMatch... will piss off other players and it takes too long to match up too).Mugsy0 5d

Nov 30 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/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: (600+ Season) 1500+ Paragons for dps (Non-Seasons) 1000+ Paragon for zdps plus, (Non-Seasons) GR85+ 4p Season or GR90+ 4p (Non Seasons) top 200 3p OR top 150 2p OR top 100 in a solo leaderboard 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 7 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.

Nov 27 Season 9 Journey Here we go again. Season 9 journey on PTR posted below http://www.diablofans.com/forums/diablo-iii-general-forums/diablo-iii-general-discussion/218606-season-9-journey 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. Could use any ancient 1H melee weapon with impale... have Seethe up, bats pet and Preparation to top up on hatred if you don't have the impale knife.Mugsy5 Nov 27
Nov 26 Lest we forget... Builds of the past I miss... - CM Wizard (my only end game vanilla dps build) - Fire and Ice M6 (my first T6 viable RoS build and still my fave dps build in RoS) - Perma Fear WD - Healing Monk - Static Charge Monk (didn't enjoy playing it but loved having one with my Healing Monk) - Del Rasha Wiz (only because my bro really enjoyed the build and kept him playing) How bout you?

Nov 16 How to: Kill Belial in 45 seconds After 4-5 tries, finally done this solo. Here's a few tips to do it if anyone is interested in doing it solo for the challenge. (i) BotT does not work on his final form, his first form and the snakes does work however. (ii) Use cow level to get Frenzied, Speed and Empowered shrines, these shrines are always in the cow level. (iii) Equip BotP and kill an elite outside the throne room, there will always be an elite on the way to the throne room. (iv) Remember to tap the space bar to skip the dialogue, it will shave off a couple of seconds. I use SWK LTK Monk build, below 700 paragon, using all Dex gems, BotT, BotP and Stricken Leg gems.jtcdgroup11 Nov 16

Nov 11 Thoughts on Blizzcon Diablo This is what made me really sad hearing at the Q&A that they are putting new content in Adventure Mode because people don't really play the story mode. Breaks my heart actually, because Diablo & Diablo 2 I played the story hundreds of times and mostly enjoyed it every single time, wish they would just try and fix the story mode by removing the pain points. The cut scenes between and general story is fine, it's just the filler crap that is really poor, Magdha, Cidaea, Belial... just remove that BS and let me Kill stuff then tell the story through cut scenes and some of the audio books and we are in a good place. See for me if they removed a few of those characters, maybe all of the followers - the most irritating thing in game "This reclic is a fake, I should have known" every time I hear that it's like nails on a chalk board. The story is not terrible, the filler is just toxic to the experience. There was some amazing news in there though, as the 20th anniversary event where you can play Diablo 1 in all Diablo 3's visual glory will be something great, I am confident in that. For me the one thing that I know Diablo 1 did better than any other game, was the music and dungeon design, so the concept of having Diablo 1 music in game is probably the biggest hype thing they have done since launch. The main hope was that they would redisign though, and bring the entire diablo 1 and 2 into updated engine. Seeing that they did announce that it would be playable only January which would mean that not until after next blizzcon would it be playable again my hopes are up. My hopes that this is just a trial, towards bringing all the old conetent into the new engine... which would be one of the best things to ever happen. ... http://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/7980249825?page=5#detail So I was posting in this thread a while back and it seems they have done exactly that, as it's called the Temple of the First Born, which will be playable soon :D The down side was that, Inarius could have been the new x-pac based on RoS it was going to be so the addition as free content, suggests that maybe they are done with adding story.troyshaun6 Nov 11

Oct 30 Journey/Stash Tab Bug For those of you who are unawares, there is a bug preventing you from completing "Destroyer" in the season journey and thus preventing you from getting the extra free stash tab. Edit: CM mentioned that its fixed, but some have still problems. I suggest if you have not done destroyer or currently at destroyer stage to delay the conquest portion until a few people have confirmed that the bug is resolved. http://us.battle.net/forums/en/d3/topic/20749877838jtcdgroup4 Oct 30

Oct 24 Season 8 Roll Call So this is it... quite possibly the last season for some of us who are only doing it for the stash tab (and hope that Blizzard will breathe life back into the game come Blizzcon). What class is everyone rolling? I'll be going with WD this time. Really wanna spend some time with the Arachyr set. It may not be an easy run to the stash tab. Arachyr is the easy set dungeon for WDs but I'll likely need help with the speed GR clears. Also, I may not find the items needed for the Arachyr Firebats build... I'll be keeping gear for the Helltooth Garg build on hand for GR pushing for sure. Over 50k blood shards and no bakuli jungle wraps on my NS WD still. Wonder if my luck will improve in seasons?Mugsy34 Oct 24
Oct 23 What happens when D3 servers shutdown forever Something I've always wondered, several years from now when diablo 3 is old and busted and blizzard shuts down the servers for good, what happens if we want to play the game then? Do we just lose the ability to play the game altogether, or would blizzard patch in an offline mode or something? Imagine if you had like, a paragon 10,000 toon and lost it all because the servers were shut down.EtotheG10 Oct 23
Oct 23 D2 Integration and Optimisation Reveal I think the Diablo being revealed at Blizzcon may be legacy Diablo integration into the current battle.net (being renamed soon) so you can see who is playing older games. I think it will eventually incorporate all legacy games and improve their performance on new machines but without too much graphical change apart from that. Increased DPI on D2 and battle.net integration along with improvements to stop cheating, botting and spamming will probably be the reveal for diablo as well as new D3 content. This will both increase the number of people playing it and still be very hype without Blizzard needing to completely remaster it. Remastering D2 would be amazing don't get me wrong, but people seem to think that is an easy job, it isn't and would need more time than they have given according to job postings, unless they started this quite some time ago. Either way, still hyped.Vci3 Oct 23

Oct 14 S8 Conquests List Season 8 conquest list: SoftCore/Hardcore 1) Boss Mode/Worlds Apart (kill 16 bosses in 20 minutes on TX) 2) Divinity/Lionhearted (clear greater rift 75 solo) 3) Curses/ Stars Align (kill 350 monsters in chest event on TX) 4) Years of War/ Dynasty (clear GR 55 solo with 6 different class sets) 5) Masters of the Universe/ Masters of Sets (master 8 set dungeons) Looks like they made it less friendly for solo players to achieve conquests. S7 I did GR55 without sets and GR75 solo. Looks like I have to seek out a few friends to achieve the second conquest as I hate timed events, and (4) and (5) will take a lot of time to achieve plus the need to have at the very least 2 classes.jtcdgroup13 Oct 14
Oct 12 LF ANZ Seasonal HC Players for end of S7 Hey all, With Season 7 coming to a close - any HC seasonal players in the region gearing up for Season 8? I've had a dig amongst the communities, but it seems the vast majority of players are non-HC. If you're in for the hard slog to Conqueror, send me a message/friend request in game and we can team up! Details are in the profile to the left of the post!sidochrome1 Oct 12
Oct 2 So are your S7 loot drops satisfying? My S7 loot priorities might be a bit different to others seeing how I am mainly NS so my aims are to get gear I don't have in NS while I'm in seasons. My DHs are the most well geared of my NS toons so I was a little reluctant to roll DH this season but it's worked out well: - 4x Nat slayers; two per my two accounts - Ancient UE helm and pants worth using on my main... finally completing my UE set in ancient - ancient Hunters Wrath with AR on it! - ancient Zoey's Secret with AR and 9% affix roll - dropped an ancient Yangs on both accounts but on my main, gave it away to someone who didn't have an ancient Yangs; even in NS. My main has a better Yangs in NS. But my alt account now has one too. - one good pair of FnR dex rings on my alt account now - ancient Lord Greenstones on my main... can replace the NS one I have - DML worth replacing my NS one with I just want the season to end so I can merge my crap - lolMugsy29 Oct 2
Sep 29 An Aussie Clan? While whiling away some hours farming I got to thinking about these Battle.net updates that Blizzard are doing and how there will be support for clans etc (as far as I know). The thought occured to me, that should be an Australian Clan where we can all get together, trade gear, talk crap (as we are want to do), assist one another (say keywarden runs), etc. Basically band together under our flag; should invite our kiwi brothers and sisters (in the ANZAC tradition) too. As far as servers are concerned we may be at the !@#$ end of globe, but we still gotta count for something. It wouldn't matter if you play 1 hour or month or you only sleep 1 hour a month (and play the rest of the time). Just something to solidfy us as a community - 'mateship' in Sanctuary if you will. Nothing owed but a little aussie spirit in joining our fellow blokes and shelias (couldn't pass up one ocker bit). Any thoughts?Infernal403 Sep 29

Sep 28 So after one more season... Most of us NS players will have our full stash unlocked. So will you... 1. Go back to NS, proud that you've overcome the hurdles to get more stash space and never venture into seasons again because restarting sucks. 2. Still make a seasonal character but not play seasons to the extent it requires to get the stash tab... you might enjoy the day 1 grind, or you find the seasonal cosmetics worth getting, or the number of active seasonal players just makes the restart worthwhile. 3. Remain in seasons. You've been converted to a leaf lover! Personally, I've still got to slug through Season 9 to unlock the final stash tab on my alt account so I'm not out of the woods just yet. After that, I'll probably start playing some HC using my alt account in seasons. SC play will mainly be in NS... apart from maybe a detour to Seasons to get the cosmetics if I like them for that season. ~10hrs of play will sort that out easily.Mugsy34 Sep 28
Sep 27 If you are looking for a refund. I see this asked in a LOT of threads, usually accompanied by complaints and "rage", but I understand that it can be easy to assume that you can't or won't get a refund, so I just thought I'd post this up in a new thread so those that bother to use the search feature can find the information that they want in an easy way without clogging up the forums. what to do if you purchased from blizzard (if you didn't purchase from blizzard this will still work for you, but you might want to go to your retailer first, it could be easier) : 1. submit a ticket on the support section of the site, be very clear that you want a refund, not that you are thinking about one, or inquiring about getting one, you are asking for one (don't let there be any doubt), also record the date you requested/confirmed that you wanted a refund and the initial date of purchase. NOTE: if you purchased a physical disc you should include a scan/picture of your game case, receipt (dated within the last 30 days), and Authentication Key. 2. call blizzard support line, whichever one is close to you (details are on the support site under "contact information" or "how to contact us") be polite and clear about it, they should help you, if you get a recorded message telling you they are busy either wait for them to get to you or call again, alternatively you can just hang up and wait because you already have a support ticket. 3. if you got your refund over the phone than mark the support ticket as resolved (or simply add a reply saying you have already got your refund), if you didn't get a refund over the phone add a reply and tell them that you couldn't get one over the phone for whatever reason. 4. be polite, no seriously, be polite and reasonable, the people over at support have to deal with !@#$ all day long, from legitimate issues to abusive !*@!s, most of the time they will be polite to you, and even when they give you cookie cutter responses (which they will) it's only because they want to sort the issue as soon as possible, yelling and being abusive will not get you a refund sooner. 5. leave feedback at the forums to detail why you are leaving, again, remember step 4 and try to give as much detail in your feedback as possible. 6. enjoy whatever game you go on to play. It really is that simple. ALTERNATIVELY you CAN get a refund from your retailer, however if it goes against store policy (such as "no refunds on opened items") you will not be able to, simply go to your local store with your copy of diablo 3 and all it's contents (no keeping any of it) and request your refund, some stores may turn you away initially but upon confirmation of blizzards refund policy they may refund you (or not, it really depends on retailer). a few things to note: as far as i know "i didn't like it" is not a good enough reason (on it's own), however lag and lack of Australian servers very well may be as you are getting a lesser service than promised because of blizzards choice of server location. you have 30 days from the purchase date to request a refund, this goes for all copies of the game regardless of whether or not you purchased from Blizzard. this thread wasn't written with any sort of first hand experience (i haven't and won't be asking for a refund), I am going purely on what I have seen on the forums, blizzard websites and second hand experiences from my friends, so this post may not be entirely accurate, but hey, it's better than nothing right? (rhetorical question, please don't make me feel bad) now please don't go filling this thread with you're "opinions" on the refund policy, as far as I am concerned the moral ground is shaky at best (not to mention highly situational), but the legal ground is relatively clear and that is really all that matters. if you feel like leaving your feedback and reasons why you requested a refund on this thread feel free to do so (because it would be nice to have all that in one place wouldn't it?), it may even help keep it near the front page (because while few people use the search function, a few more than a few actually read the top half of the first page) again, I apologize if any of this information is inaccurate, but if it is tell me and I'll try to update this (better than nothing... I'll keep telling myself that). useful links: refund policy: http://us.battle.net/support/en/article/order-returns-exchanges submit a support ticket: https://us.battle.net/support/en/ticket/submit blizzard support contact information: http://sea.battle.net/support/en/article/contactJackL54 Sep 27
