Aus/NZ General Discussion

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 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

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?

Dec 28 WD issues I have been playing WD gargs for some time now. I can clear 87 solo. DPS is 5.2 mil. decent gear. I am used to playing this style. Problem is that I can not get into higher group GR because I am not a FB WD. I have all the ancient gear needed for a FB on another WD. I try to play this style and just do not like it. DPS is low. What is so special about this FB WD? what can it to so special that the garg can not? If I am to switch, what is a good build to look at as a guide? thanksBarkley6 Dec 28

Dec 6, 2016 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.

Dec 2, 2016 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): 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 Dec 2, 2016

Nov 16, 2016 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, 2016

Nov 11, 2016 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. ... 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, 2016

Oct 30, 2016 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. Oct 30, 2016

Oct 24, 2016 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, 2016
Oct 23, 2016 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, 2016
Oct 23, 2016 D2 Integration and Optimisation Reveal I think the Diablo being revealed at Blizzcon may be legacy Diablo integration into the current (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 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, 2016

Oct 14, 2016 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, 2016
Oct 12, 2016 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, 2016
Oct 2, 2016 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, 2016
Sep 29, 2016 An Aussie Clan? While whiling away some hours farming I got to thinking about these 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, 2016
Sep 29, 2016 Looking for people to play with MLB Melbourne 420 fiend finally made the jump up to D3 after a solid D2 re-run, was looking for people to play with! Just starting out so, would be good to get on with some fresh faces!! Send a reply if you're keen to get amongst <3CR0W32 Sep 29, 2016
Sep 28, 2016 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, 2016
Sep 27, 2016 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: submit a support ticket: blizzard support contact information: Sep 27, 2016
