Sep 27, 2013pikke posted a message on New Datamined Patch - Class Changes, Passive Effects, Character slots, Stat caps, Quests, and MUCH moreThanks for datamining and sharing!Posted in: News & Announcements
Gonna read it over the weekend.
Sep 18, 2013pikke posted a message on Diablo III Auction House is Shutting Down on March 18, 2014Well, this is something I didn't expect but makes me very happy.Posted in: News & Announcements
I play self found single player since release and like it that way (give me offline and I'd explode of joy)
Yet I can see that a safe trading envyronment would add to the experience for those players who likes it and I wouldn't have any problem with an AH which does not affect the game so much (like items drop ratio, just to make an example).
Unfortunately AH in D3 was also a great limiting factor when it came down to development and new features: every time Blizz thought to implement something they had to ask themselves "will this work well with the current AH system?".....most often the answer was no.
So BoA made its comeback.
Now they have more freedom in what they plan and this is a good thing in itself.
For all the guys who likes to trade I hope Blizz come up with a reliable trading system, just one that's not mandatory to play the game at its fullest.
To Maka and the other fellows who, alongside my humble self, since before release were sayng "this AH system will ruin the game!":
May 19, 2013I've contrasting feelings about the game.Posted in: News & Announcements
I like the game, I've been playing it with no breaks till I got my hands on it, about a week after release.
I play almost 99,99% alone, I've tried to play with friends at times, but I just love to play solo.
I have 10 characters, all of them levelled at the same time, 2 out of 10 killed Diablo in Inferno
The game has improved.
A lot, I dare say.
But.....this game has some built-in flaws that you cannot fix, at least not without a complete change of some core mechanics.
Some of the decisions they took while developing the game didn't feel like a good choice to me at the time (arrogant of me, I know)
Since before beta I thought they were starting from false premises (example: Blizzard seems to think that solo playing is some sort of weird behaviour they should help you to get rid of....why?) when planning this game, I still think so.
At least I've seen a some steps in what I think is the right direction.
But I'm just a Diablo addicted who still play the game almost each day, so what I know?
Jan 19, 2013Blizz could force you to start far off from a boss after you kill it the first time.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Like two or 3 missions earlier, that would force players to run at least a third of an Act.
Es. if you want to run The Butcher you need to start from Leoric Manor otherwise no act boss or no drop increase.
Add that to minibosses like Skeleton King (you should be forced to start from, say, finding the crown in the cemetery) and players will need to run most of act 1.
Oct 7, 2012pikke posted a message on Have blizzard said they are concerned with people only playing one class?I'm leveling 10 characters and my highest one is a male WD (lvl 56, if memory serves) who just killed Leoric in Hell.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I cannot comprehend why this gamestyle is considered "stupid".
I don't rush things, I experiment a lot, I enjoy the game and have fun.
Should I say people who rushed towards the end playing just one single class out of five are playing in a stupid way?
No, they are just playing the game the way they like it.
Paragon levels take too much time? I played D2 for years and I hope to play D3 for a long time too.
Also PLs have been added mainly because a lot of people rushed to the end and then started complaining because there was nothing else to do.
They may not be the best solution but they should last till PvP is out.
Be patient and enjoy the game.

indeed, asset lag even makes me sad, and few things can do thatQuote from Uldyssian
"It is possible for certain machines to experience "stuttering" when all of the game's assets are fully loaded. Our testing has concluded on this issue and Blizzard hopes to have this resolved in a future patch."
Best thing they have said yet. Finally we will see a fix coming for this dismal problem.
Can we have the achievement "I told you it was not my fault" now?
At least we can hope for some fix.
As soon as patch will be up & ready here in EU I'll try out how this lot of changes work.
Mar 29, 2012Some discussion is going on in this topic:Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
but since that topic was referring to the use of left click mouse button and I don't want to steer the discussion I thought to open this one.
Some people says "hitboxes" are too big and create issues (I'm one of these complainers), others say they are not so big.
edit: a very short video:
I played a bit and took some screenshots (1280x1024 is my screen resolution)
The first three screenies shows how far on the left, top and right of a ravenous dead the hitbox extend.
this one above and the one below show you that hitbox is almost the same be the target close or far
Right and left of an Hungry Corpse
At last two screenies showing target highlighted even if the mouse icon is NOT in attack mode:
I dare say they are too big and I'd like to know why it is so, if there is a technical reason or what else.
Nov 8, 2011pikke posted a message on Beta is too easy? yeah, D2 LoD act 1 normal was soooo difficult...Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from MonkManD3
Whether you were being sarcastic or not I'm gonna explain!
Sorry, english is not my own language and fun/funny is something that still troubles me .
If you are willing to explain I'm willing to learn, I'd appreciate it.
Let's start Diablo english course!
Diablo English 101:
1) Fun - When you enjoy doin something. ie. I will have a lot of fun when I play D3!
2) Funny - Humorous, causing laughter. ie. It's funny to see how easily noobs get pwned!
I'm serious and I appreciate your explanation
I believe videogames have great potential as medium of instruction.
I know people who never spent a minute on math while at school who spent hours or even days trying to grasp the math behind games or even graphic (something beyond my ken)
To me each thread, each post, video or interview is good practice as well as info about the game I like the most.

In addition to the rules below, we also abide by the Twitch Community Guidelines
- Reporting Posts
- Site Guidelines
- Staff Discretion
- Warnings and Infractions
- Trolling & Flaming
- Videos and Streams
- Vote manipulation
- Language Barrier
- Illegal Activities and Violations of the Terms of Service
- Staff Guidelines
Administrators, Managers, and the Moderation Team try to patrol as much of the boards as possible, but can't read it all. If you find a post that is inappropriate, report it and they will look into it as quickly as possible. Do not involve yourself. It's simple and keeps you out of flame wars and out of trouble.
Do not, under any circumstances, publicly discuss moderation about threads, members, social groups, visitor messages, albums, and/or blogs in any public venue. PM the moderation manager if you feel you have been unfairly treated (see our team page) or the community manager if you need a different contact.
We operate on a basis of staff discretion, what this means is not all moderators or staff members will act exactly the same to certain situations. We are not machines and for the most part are volunteers. These are the site guidelines, they obviously cannot cover every situation, but if you post something not directly covered here and we still feel like it's against the spirit of the thread or the forums we can and will remove it.
However if you do feel that it was wrongly removed then PM our moderation team about the situation and we will review it.
In general most offenses will either issue a one point infraction, though not limited to, or a warning which doesn't add to your infraction bar, it merely serves as a notification to you that it's not okay to continue the action and it is kept logged for staff to view when dealing with you in the future.
Automatic actions will be taken at certain amounts of infraction points:
- Four points is a three day suspension.
- Six points is a week suspension.
- Eight points is a two week suspension.
- Ten points is a permanent ban.
This section should be very self explanatory, DiabloFans operates on general common sense netiquette. We will not tolerate threads made solely to complain or any kind of ridiculous trolling (posts made to provoke a person or a group of people).
Do not make personal attacks against another user based on anything and do not flame. Personal attacks will not be taken lightly.
Sometimes discussion steers threads into a different direction than the original post. That is fine. What is not fine is purposely entering a thread and steering it in a different direction to derail it. If you enter a thread about how great kittens are and start telling everyone kittens are terrible and puppies are better, that is derailing. On the same line of thinking though, if you enter a thread about how bad a puppy is and you wish it would stop making messes in the floor and someone comes in and says puppies are fine you're a moron, that's also not okay.
Remember to not take part and report it instead, it will keep you out of trouble.
Our forums are not an advertising platform. Do not create a thread to advertise your stream or attempt to advertise your stream otherwise - we will delete such threads/posts without a notification.
If you have created a video about any Diablo 3 content, be it a class guide, footage of you killing monsters, or a discussion about the game's features, feel free to post this on our forums. However, please note the following rules:
- A user is allowed to post a video, only if the video is used to to start up a topic with a meaningful and constructive discussion.
- The post that contains the video must have all the important information in text form as well, such that members who can't watch the video can participate in the discussion as well. In particular, if you're showcasing a new build, make sure to post a link to your build (for example by using our Build tool or the official build calculator).
- The video and its contents must be in line with the forum rules as well as Blizzard's Terms of Service.
Video threads that we feel are just about advertising your channel and do not provide basis for a constructive and meaningful discussion will be deleted without a notification.
Also, please note that our forum is primarily intended to be a platform for discussion - so even if you're a content creator, make sure to also participate in discussions when you're posting videos. We do not have an official rule or ratio of "threads vs posts" or "video vs discussion posts" numbers, but we do keep an eye on this and will notify you if we think the ratio is getting out of hand. If you want to post multiple videos please make a thread and reply to add new videos (or edit the last post - see our bumping rules).
In general, we do not allow advertising on our site. If you have inquiry that might be related to advertising your content please contact our moderation team about it first. It will then be discussed with other members of the staff and a decision will be made. We reserve the right to refuse for any reasons we choose and are not obligated to explain them. We will never allow advertisement to sites for monetary gain, only ones providing meaningful discussion for our members and relevant topics.
If anyone posts any links to any guides of the sort that are not free and have any sort of strings attached or monetary gain behind them, you will be banned without warning. This includes links in posts, links in your profile, links in your signature, links in reported PMs, or anywhere else. This also includes linking to your blog, Facebook, MySpace, a Youtube video or anything else that provides links to where someone would be selling a guide.
If you are making a guide to help people or just to show friends, whatever, that is fine. I repeat though, if you're charging for your expertise on the matter, you will be banned. This is not a site to advertise on.
Builds in our builds section can be upvoted or downvoted, and you're free to share the link to friends (outside of Diablofans) and ask them to upvote your build. Note however that we have a close watch on potential issues of vote manipulation - i.e., attempts of any kind to artificially inflate (or lower) the vote count on any given build. Vote manipulation will result in 2 infraction points, removal of all associated votes on the build in question, and a ban to accounts who have been identified as being abused for the purpose of vote manipulation. We cannot reveal the specifics on how we go about identifying acts of vote manipulation - but rest assured that such actions will not go unsanctioned.
A "bump" is a post in a thread with the purpose to bring this thread to the top of a particular forum list. We do not allow excessive bumping, and while in most forums (e.g., General Discussion) we might be lenient from time to time, please give forums users some time (a few days) before you bump. However, in the clan forums we have a strict 7 day rule. That means if the last post in you clan thread is more recent than 7 days, you are not allowed to post there (even if you have updated information - update the first and/or last post then).
The use of videos and excessively animated (read: seizure-invoking) images within signatures is prohibited. Do note that you are allowed to use animated images, just not ones that are obscenely animated.
Note that this is primarily an English community. Posting in public forums (as well as status updates) in languages other than English is considered spam and will be removed. Private manners, such as PM's and wall comments are allowed, as long as both parties are in agreement.
Although those are not the official forums, we do not allow any threads or posts that are against the Terms of Service of Blizzard or their games either. This includes, but is not limited to, the following activities:
- Do not post about trading Blizzard accounts or CD keys.
- Do not offer to sell items or services.
- Do not post about Blizzard or Activision piracy, we will not tolerate either. As far as other games go... Don't ask, don't tell.
- Do not offer or ask for account sharing.
- Do not post links to third party software that, when being used, might get you banned.
- Do not post exploits, or links to videos or threads showcasing exploits.
Any such violations will be moderated without a warning (threads/posts will be locked or deleted and infractions/bans might be issued).
These are the behavior guidelines we intend to hold our staff members to. If they violate these, please contact the staff member's manager or an administrator. If you are interested in being a Staff member, please understand that you will be held to stricter standards than the rest of the community.
- Staff members are official representatives of DiabloFans and should act accordingly. For this reason, staff members must never be found threatening the integrity of the staff team by breaking any of our regular rules.
- Since staff members are representatives of the site they are entitled the respect that comes with that responsibility. If any user shows flagrant disregard or disrespect for a moderator performing their duties please let an administrator know.
- Staff members should never carry out personal agendas with their privileges. If you feel there is a conflict of interest, please report the post or contact a manager or administrator.
- Reported Posts should be responded to as promptly as possible. Staff members should try to follow reported problems back to where they started and take the appropriate actions.
If you have any further questions, please post a thread in the Site Suggestions and Questions forum.
Mar 26, 2013Since a few users requested this - here is a topic to explain how to post properly on Diablofans. It's meant to give you a general idea of how to format your posts and make them work nicely with our forum. If you have any specific questions you're free to ask. This post may get updated if new things are requested.Posted in: Site Feedback
Table of Contents:
- Inserting Videos
- Linking to Another User
- Tooltips From Battle.net
- Separation Line
- How to Make a Table of Contents
- Spoiler Tags
- Adding Tables
When pasting things the forum tries to keep the old formatting intact, which sometimes makes the post look quite ugly. Here's an example:
Gather your gear, heroes, and get ready to face down the Burning Hells on the PlayStation 3!
Our action-packed single-player hands-on demo will showcase several key elements that make Diablo III on the PS3 so much fun, including a reimagined interface and inventory system, direct character control, updated camera, and bosses and monsters specifically tuned for console. Players will also get to experience gameplay from Act III of the campaign where they’ll get to test their mettle as either the cunning Demon Hunter or mighty Barbarian.
In order to avoid these things you should use the "Remove Format" button, which, believe it or not, removes all formatting from the selected text. To straight out paste things without the old formatting you can use the key combination ctrl+shift+v. A fair warning is that all other formatting, like URLs, bolded text and other such things, will also be removed. To see how to properly post a Blue Post check the Quoting section below.
Quoting text generally has no issues, but here are some tips that might help you make your quotes a bit more more elegant. Quoting Blizzard posts happens with the "blizzquote" tag. Inside it you can also use a few more lines of code that could make it more complete. Here's an example:
In the example "author" is obviously the author of the quote, while "blue" is the source of the quote in our Blue Tracker. You can also use "battle" to link to the official forums, the same way "blue" is used. In all cases the information must be surrounded with an apostrophe and preceded by an equal sign coming from the code as is shown above.
This is how it looks like when I pull the example out of the code tag:
Originally Posted by 'Blizzard' (Blue TrackerOfficial Forums)*Text*
There is also a "dfansquote" tag, which is meant for text that isn't a direct Blizzard code and might not have a "quote" button associated with it. It is used in exactly the same way as "blizzquote". Here's an example of how it looks like:
The way we use "dfansquote" is to quote things involving the game or the forums without it being attached to a blue poster. Using the normal quote tag usually signifies a quote from a forum member, so "dfansquote" gives it that "slightly more important or unusual" vibe.
Proper inserting of videos, with displaying the actual video on the site instead of just linking to it, is made with the "media" tag. Example:
Note: it is very important to first remove the actual link from the pasted text. You can do this by pasting the link unformatted with ctrl+shift+v or by selecting the text and using our "Unlink" button , which is located right next to the Link button.
Linking to Another User
You can link to other users with this:
This is the result - overneathe. The positive thing about this and not just pasting a URL on top of the text is that our user tooltip works with it when you hover above the name.
Tooltips From Battle.net
A nice feature of the site is that you can link straight to Battle.net items, spells and builds and on hover you can view their tooltips. Like this. To make users more aware that this is likely an item link with a tooltip it's preferable if you type out the actual name of the item, like Mempo of Twilight.
Absolutely the same works for spells and builds.
There is no code associated with this feature. Simply select the text you wish to link, press the "Link" button on your post and paste in the address for the item. The tooltip is automatic.
The code for the separation (or "horizontal") line that is used in this post a lot (the long red one) is:
How to Make a Table of Contents
To be able to do this you need two tags. One is "anchor" and the other is "alink". "Anchor" is attached to text you wish to be linked (like a paragraph in your text), while "Alink" is used in the table itself and tells the code to go to a specific "anchor". Here's an example:
Table of Contents [alink='items']1. Items[/alink] *lots of text* [anchor='items']Items[/anchor]
In the example your anchor is named "items" and the link tag from above is also named "items" which prompts the code to send you to the anchor of the same name.
Spoiler tags are generally used in two ways: to hide spoilers or to hide huge amounts of text that are not critical but are useful in context. The code for them is pretty straight forward:
Here's the result:
Adding tables on Diablofans is a bit tricky. Sometimes they break and it's not pretty. It takes a few tries to get the table going, but when it's done it looks quite nice. There's almost nothing in terms of code that goes into them. The only important part is to add the "|" symbol to let the code know where your new column begins and linebreaks for a new row. Here's what you have to do:
[table]Item | Explanation | Summary Mempo of Twilight | | Link to Item | Helm with horns! | This helm is good because it has horns. Inna's Radiance | | Link to Item | Helm with a gem! | This one on the other hand has a gem in it![/table](don't mind the different colors)
And here is the result:
Item Explanation Summary Mempo of Twilight Link to Item Helm with horns! This helm is good because it has horns. Inna's Radiance Link to Item Helm with a gem! This one on the other hand has a gem in it!

Dec 16, 2013Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
So I've been compiling a list of feedback and bugs to report for the Beta, but I just wanted to quickly share this as a QoL suggestion.
Cooldown Reduction, Resource Cost Reduction and +Skill% are all fantastic additions to the game, but I feel their benefits need more succinct representation in the UI. I really love that we can now view stat ranges on items when holding CTRL, so I thought, why not apply a similar function to Skill tooltips that shows their effective values. I made this quick mock-up as an example of how this display would function and what it would look like.
I feel this type of direct presentation makes those stats feel more tangible, while allowing for much more efficient theorycrafting.
Any thoughts on this? Or perhaps alternatives?
Edit: Dude, terrible spelling.
Dec 16, 2013
Haha, lol. Nice to see you are stil around! XD
It would be fun to have a "minuscule" affix which could miniaturize our heroes or pets. At the same time reduce both damage and defense but increase movement speed and dodge chance. Look, I'm a mini barbarian! 😄
Nov 25, 2013In addition to extra space, I'd love a way for us to access our other character's gear through the stash. So if you wanted to switch gear from one to another, you can just go to your stash instead of switching to the other character, moving the item to stash, and then switching back.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Nov 25, 2013As a player who will want six level 70 softcore and six level 70 hardcore (one for each class) leaving zero slots for mules; I really really really have to insist on more stash space. Especially if legendaries are BoA. In Vanilla now I just buy whatever legendaries I want off the AH so I never hoard things. But I am going to want to stash legendaries a lot now with this change.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
