Jul 30, 2012 Servers performance worse now than ever I am rubber banding every single champion pack. it has cost me at least 10 deaths in this act 3 'farm' because im running away from something then instantly teleported back into the middle of a pack that has molten arcane enchanted with no escape. this isnt !@#$ing fun. fix your %^-*ing servers.DuaneDibly16 Jul 30, 2012
Jul 30, 2012 Going Back to Diablo II LOD To be perfectly honest, I'm utterly bored and disappointed with D3. There's no longevity. No need to build multiple barbs etc. The gear is boring - predictable, no variety, one-dimensional No real community/gameplay interaction Impossible to play HC in Australia etc etc However, what D3 has managed to do with brilliance, is make me miss D2! I am actually going to re-acquire new D2/LOD disks and begin to play it again. Hey, you can even buy runes etc easily from valid and legal places. At least I can play when I want, how I want... if there is maintenance, so be it, I'll go single.... i'm actually excited. Will be back to ol' stomping ground of Asia1 realm (if its all the same). I'll check back on D3 if Blizz get their act together in the future (but I'm not holding my breathe... Worx signing off of D3 ~Worx~Worx3 Jul 30, 2012
Jul 30, 2012 Bad Graphics Hey guys, I've been noticing over the past couple of weeks the graphics in my gameplay are increasingly getting worse. At first I noticed the loading screen fuzzy, and a couple of the items in my inventory also. I updated my graphics card yesterday in hope that it would fix the problems but no luck. Also, I noticed today the background for he Auction House had gone fuzzy and also when I click to portal places it's fuzzy now too. So can anyone help me out? I've tried changing the options in game but no luck either..StOrM5 Jul 30, 2012

Jul 29, 2012 Asia server I have been playing on US server for the last 2 months, latency has been constantly 200ish, acceptable. But when I tried to play on Asia server recently, the latency jumps to 400-800, best is 398, unplayable in inferno. Anyone experiencing the same, what is your latency on Asia server? anything we can do to improve this? My isp: Sydney, Optus 20mb cable.wangyi0 Jul 29, 2012
Jul 29, 2012 What server am i meant to play on? Im on the US server cranking around 250 ping when its being nice with 12mbps connection, when its being what it is right now to have me writing this forum 370-1200 ping i start to question if im even on the right server. Farming inferno with over 250 ping is fantastic as it is, I play Wizard which heavily relies on me being able to use skills like lets say teleport to get away but when you sit there repeatedly spamming the button because nothing is happening you are caught in molten/firechains you start to get a little annoyed and end up turning off the game. We already have fail drop rates to contend with and the ability to down Diablo with 20k hp 900 resist and a bit of diamond skin/frost nova/tornado spam with the only thing that can kill us is the shadow clone, this random lag does not help people want to stick it out and see if you can fix this mess.Akhelous5 Jul 29, 2012
Jul 29, 2012 Guys, i created a trade thread for a reason I created that trade thread so that anyone who wants to sell or trade can post in there for EVERYONE to see, what is funny is that our forum is turning into a sales only forum...which is quite annoying to look at and all i see is, 'WTS' or 'friendly crafter' or 'WTS gold and gear'...almost every thread is a sale, so please, if you guys dont mind please use our AUS/NZ trade thread..! ThanksAnonymousOne15 Jul 29, 2012

Jul 28, 2012 how do i get money back for the game? well ive had it for about 2-3 months now and id like to get rid of the game? is there anyway i can get any money back for it?BRAD7 Jul 28, 2012
Jul 28, 2012 Has anyone had this problem? I deposited $50 in to my battle net account. My money showed up 3 days later. Its now been over a week now and I still cannot see any money on my RMAH. Is this normal? I'm dying to buy some better gear! Has this happened to anyone else? Does blizzard have a tech support email?Pykie9 Jul 28, 2012

Jul 28, 2012 Inferno and gear ect Im currently able to farm Inferno act 1 with "relative" ease, I might die once or twice to an especially horrible affix champ. but pretty much I have it on farm mode. but the moment I move to act 2 I stand no chance. so I usually start from the highlands and go all the way through to the butcher, this gets me a good 20 - 30 champ packs as well as the butcher worth of rares. with full neph buff I have about 165 - 170% magic find. i have about 20k DPS 300 - 400 resist all. I still have not had any items drop that are an upgrade for me (i still had a ring that was a level 45 item). I caved and wen't to the AH and bought some upgrades WHICH i had to search through over 50 pages to find ANYTHING under like 50 million gold. Im lucky to have 1 million gold to my name at any one point. I found a few sane people selling things for between 50k and 300k which were a "Decent" upgrade, but what the crap... is gold really so easy to get that people can buy 400 million gold items? Do I just suck at this farming? I'm using the blacksmith to try and make some decent level 62 boots. but after 10 goes i still haven't had anything above a 75 point stat get added to it, as well as it costing me 30k gold a try which is about half an hour worth of act 1 inferno gold pickup. can anyone give me some advice about what I need to do to actually feel like im getting anywhere? once I got to act 1 inferno, it was hard, but i managed to get buy, now its getting to the point where its easy enough, but act 2 inferno is still a big step up and I just cant find the gear from act 1 farming to progress.Jamoise11 Jul 28, 2012
Jul 28, 2012 A critical problem about HC mode It's very very frustrating when die due to a latency problem, isn't it? specially for ANZ players who are remote to the server. HC mode is nothing to do with us....OzDusT1 Jul 28, 2012
Jul 28, 2012 Need wizard advice for inferno Ok so I just leveled my 2nd 60 character (first being a barb). I hated melee combat/not being able to do lots of ranged damage/and having to stat for resists etc... so I rolled a wizard. Below are some images of my Wiz and his current gear and skills. I just hit inferno so I dont know if this will work. If anyone has any advice on my stats (like what I can change) that would be awesome. Also If someone could tell me a good way to kite/solo/group play etc... as well I would be very appreciative. My friend is a 60 demon hunter and I either play with him (2-man) or go solo. My skills are probably not right for inferno, so any advice on that as well would be great. Stats/Gear (you cant see but I also have 19% movement speed) Skills Any help would be massively appreciated. Thanks guys.Simz19 Jul 28, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 London Olympics 2012 Not sure if this is the right place. Anyone excited about the London Olympics? Are you taking time off owning demons and cheering for your beloved/favourite country? Have a few mates over, pop some bottles and just enjoy the game maybe? Well, I am. =) I'm not a hardcore gamer, and I'm pretty much stuck at Act II sewers with my DH anyway coz iNoob. Also, this only happens once every 4 years so I'm not gonna miss it for the world! What are you going to do? P.S. Anyone has timetable for the games with relevance to Perth time? I don't wanna miss the opening ceremony!Taurean882 Jul 27, 2012

Jul 27, 2012 Finished inferno with Cheap Wizard Hey Guys before I start just want to say that I have never posted before on these forums before and in fact have only just now briefly looked at these forums particularly the AUS/NZ which I regret as I should have taken advantage of its friendly community well before I have managed to finish the game on inferno. Anyway yes, I have just finished the game by defeating diablo himself on inferno with my solo Wizard no small feat I assure you, at least for me. Now the reason I'm posting this isn't to brag noooo its to just let people know, particularly us Aussies/Kiwis who have to endure the constant 290-ish ping with the occasional !@#$ me lag spike, that persistence and constantly trying to improve one's self with skills, build changes and gear will eventually get you there. To shed light on what I have for gear, my stats and build I have made this short video I hope you find it helpful. Forgive the lack of actual gameplay footages as fraps does take much of my CPU and hard disk space that when coupled with lag does lowers my framerate and makes playing the game quite difficult. I have yet to complete the game with any other class. I have a lvl 60 monk and barb both of which are currently stuck in act 3 inferno until better gear can be acquired but I just want to shed some light on the possibility of winning without having millions of gold, not using the RMAH and not having the best gear in the game at least for the wizard. This is just to give some hope to those who are considering quitting the game because its too hard which is fair enough you do play games to have fun after all. CheersPred7 Jul 27, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 Free Gold/Barb Gear.. Asia Server.. Pretty decent Act II Barb gear, 14k dps, 11k armor, 47k health, 700-800 res, stormshield, 5 mill gold, heap of gems. Was spending more time in the AH flipping items to make gold than actually playing the thing and realized all I am doing is trying to stack more and more of the same things. Not the detail and options I expected from this game at all, without even getting into the problems with it. PM me and will add you.Psychonaut4 Jul 27, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 Demon Hunter need inferno advice Hey I just got to lvl 60 and hit inferno with my Demon Hunter. I am trying to find out what to do with my stats/skills to survive in this difficulty. I have provided screenshots of both my stats and my skills and any advice would be awesome (my friend did this earlier with his wiz and was very happy with the help he recieved). Stats (movement speed is 12% but you cant see it) Skills Please let me know how I can survive and kick !@# in inferno as I am a bit confused right now with what to do. Thanks and cheers -Charleschucknasty7 Jul 27, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 AUS HC how far have people progressed? im currently lv 47 n 32 (wiz n barb) having more fun than i did SC but do get very scared when i freeze or lag... just wonderin how others r going with aus pings. cheersWindup3 Jul 27, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 Inferno Help! Seriously guys... Where am I going wrong? This is pretty much the best I can get my hands on in the GAH and I'm still getting owned on inferno! (Stuck on Act III Machines of War) Here is a pic of my current gear. Could someone... Anyone... Help me please!?! Jul 27, 2012
Jul 27, 2012 Take your grieve elsewhere... Requesting for a section/folder on the forums for all the whingers, cryers and ragers to post their threads. I'm sick and tired of having to scroll/skip through threads of peeps bitc*ing and raging about the same old sh*t on quiting, AH, class, difficulty issues, etc - take your f*** elsewhere. If you're quiting, no one gives a crap - just quit, and quit gracefully. Personally, what I want to read is constructive and interesting threads such as game development, changes, player suggestions, and the like on 'general discussion'.Worfe18 Jul 27, 2012

Jul 26, 2012 Server lag issues The last 2-3 days i've been getting smashed with lag. I've ran the normal speed tests and all good. Playing other online games and no dramas at all. Am I alone on this or are others out there suffering the same? I've been jumping, at random, 500-2000 ping. Nothing seems to trigger it as it happens even while in town. Blizz, If this is a server side drama could it please be addressed.Confuscious5 Jul 26, 2012

There are some exclusions though, if you have ever posted a wts or pc in the AU/NZ area, you're excluded. Everyone else, make your self known.Master13 Jul 26, 2012
Jul 26, 2012 Refund. Dear Blizzard, Having purchased Diablo 3 with the express intent to play the game whenever I could find time, I have been unpleasantly surprised to find that I infact, can't. This, coupled with an awful connection due to a lack of Oceanic servers and absolutely zero customer support has left me with a product I no longer wish to own. I (like many others) was an avid Diablo 1 and 2 fan, and I was more than prepared to wait out the launch phase, where you have been quickly (and very successfully) ironing out bugs and coping with millions of customers demands. The average customer (myself included) would probably just let this happen to them, however I have come to the conclusion that I don't like being messed around, nor accepting sub standard products for my hard earned cash. Please respond with some semblance of customer care, and let myself and the rest of the Diablo fanbase know that you not only respect them, but are willing to help them enjoy your marvelous creation. If this is to be the way of things, I would like to request a full refund for my purchase. Sincerely Luke, VICOvercast27 Jul 26, 2012
Jul 26, 2012 This is what the skills tooltip should say: Barbarian: - Ignore Pain: After 0.5 seconds, reduce all damage taken by 65% for 5 seconds. Demon Hunter: - Smoke Screen: Vanish behind a wall of smoke, making you momentarily invisible. After 0.5 seconds. Monk: - Breath of Heaven: When you or your ally are gonna die, press this. They will get healed. After 0.5 seconds. Witch Doctor: - Spirit Walk: You prepare to leave your physical body for 0.5 seconds, after which you can spirit walk. Wizard: - Teleport: if you are in trouble, press this and after 0.5 seconds you will appear somewhere else. But you have to guarantee in the future 0.5 seconds nothing is in the way. Mystic Health Potion: - Heals for 12,500 health after 0.5 seconds. Also, your body is actually fatter than you can see. missiles hit you before they reach you so be careful if you are dodging projectiles too late. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- proposed solution: 1) make collision locally determined. 2) make combat locally determined (at least in single player) and have a verification server that does all the calculations 0.5 seconds after. If the numbers mismatch then treat the player as hack. 3) upgrade warden. if you worry about american nerds taking advantage of this system, then only enable it if player IP is from lets say, above 50ms away. also don't worry about aus servers, you ain't gonna do it, doesn't matter what the cms say.Agreed1 Jul 26, 2012
Jul 26, 2012 Add an incentive for playing with others In diablo 2 you got more experience for playing with other people so there was always an incentive unless you weren't trying to level up any more. This meant you spent most of you time playing with other people. In diablo 3, you get punished with 15% extra damage (getting removed in a patch) and 115% extra life meaning that unless you need help though the story, no one ever teams up and for magic finding it will always slow someone down. My suggestion is, for each extra player in the game you all get 15% extra MF and GF so with 1 person you get 0% extra MF and GF with 2 people you get 15% extra MF and GF each with 3 people you get 30% extra MF and GF each with 4 people you get 45% extra MF and GF each I think this would be enough of an incentive to encourage people to play together without making it a requirement. Can anyone think of a reason this would be a bad idea or does anyone have any other ideas for encouraging multi player games? exp gain is pretty much out since levelling isn't an end game any more.Callum26 Jul 26, 2012

Jul 26, 2012 So.....I have just identified 100+ lvl 63s... Hi all, I have this little habit of piling up 63 items to id later as I feel out of all of them, there must be at least one or two godly items... There were 15 rev and hellion bows, 10 archon armors/glove/helm/boots....10 sacred shield...and only one hand weapons..... Along with 10 lvl 62 rings and 6 62 ammys.... The result was utterly disappointing.. the max dps on a weapon was a rev bow just over 900, no armor was good at all..... I am starting to believe that Blizz has indeed increased the drop rate and nerfed the drop quality..... What do you all thin?? ps. it took me and my gf about 10 days to get all the items doing gob runs about 5-7 hours a day.....JUMPSMASH14 Jul 26, 2012

Jul 26, 2012 Question on digital copy of D3 I bought a digital copy of D3 and installed it overseas. If I moved back to Sydney, would I still be able to install and play it in Sydney? Or would I have to purchase another copy?gohkm2 Jul 26, 2012
Jul 25, 2012 Had trouble launching till I did this. If you are having trouble launching the game like I did. Like I always have. Basically if you get stuck on the updater, or if you hit the play button and it says "launching" but nothing happens, try this. If updater is not finishing and not downloading anything: 1. Open up your task manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete buttons). 2. Select the Processes list 3. Select the Agent.exe file and hit the End Process button. Note: this agent.exe will restart itself and re-attempt to complete the updater or check that your game is up to date. After one or two attempts at closing the agent.exe and letting it restart itself, it always seems to just suddenly work and complete the update check. If you can get through all that and it says "game is up to date" and you press the PLAY button, and then it says "launching" BUT NOTHING HAPPENS even after 5 minutes. Then try this: 1. Open up your task manager (Ctrl + Alt + Delete buttons). 2. Select the Processes list 3. Select the Blizzard launcher and END process button. select ok to end. 4. Select the any and all Agent.exe file and hit the End Process button. 5. Restart your Diablo III and do the entire process again. Note: I do this 3 - 5 times untill finally one time when I click PLAY, it simply starts the game as it should. Note 2: I'm not certain that this is always the case, but I'm noticing that when it does finally work and the game loads up to the log in screen, the launcher never displayed the "Game is up to date" to the left of the PLAY button. And there was no download stage 1, 2, 3 display of any kind. Simply the launcher with the typical diablo III info, the patch notes or latest news etc etc and the Play button lit up instantly. Hope this helps someone and if anyone has any tips for why I'm having to do this to get my game going, please post below. Before this, my best method for not having launching issues was to not close the game...ever. The patch last night forced a game close though doh.feralplay2 Jul 25, 2012

Jul 25, 2012 30 sec health time If it not hard enough to stay on top & the monsters in hard fights.... This timed health RATION sucks... groups of monsters jump you. hit you & heal in some cases lots faster than 1 player can handle... they were hard enough at lower levels & no its like just GROUND HOG DAY!!!!!.... Pity 10 yrs of PLANNING etc little new rules make it very ANNOYING game to play when you are stuck for hours in the 1 spotCasper7 Jul 25, 2012

Jul 25, 2012 Support Ticket open for 7 days, no reply Is this normal for Blizzard Support? I've had a ticket open for 7 days and had no response. Does Blizzard Support have a reputation of ignoring tickets that are requesting a refund for this pathetic game? I had a ticket regarding a bug in the Blizzard store and it was closed very quickly. The lack of /any/response is just another reason I'll not be buying Blizzard games again.DickMundee6 Jul 25, 2012
