Great. Thanks for linking.
Woudl be helpful for everyone if you could copy the relevant information from those posts and paste it here to be honest.
Isn't Pain Enhancer kind of negligable at higher GRs or is the damage still substantial? I'm not sure if I'd want the attackspeed either, could potentially lead to fury shortage. Defensive gems seem to be unnecessary, I wonder if Bane of the Powerful / Toxic gem would lead to more DPS than Pain Enhancer.
Well, Pain enhancer deals a percentage of damage based on your weapon damage so it's scaling with your damage therefore there is no such thing as "kind of negligable at higher GRs".
It's doing physical damage so that gets boosted by your soj, bracers and amulet.
Dust devils now scale with attack speed so the ias from PE is probably really good. Might even be better than bott / taeguk but i doubt it. I think it's safe to say that PE is a solid 3rd gem. I need to test how attack speed scales with dust devils though so don't take my word for it.
BOP is good but in a perfect rift you don't even have elites so the bop uptime won't be that high in an ideal rift anyway so i don't know.
Also, more ias will not cause you to run out of fury if you are running the ancient's fury rune on cota.
I'm not Mannercookie but i tested 6p WW with 4p IK and it's quite a powerful combo. I cleared solo 50 without dying once because i went for the life steal rune on rend and the life steal rune on ww. That, along with 40% dmg reduction from the WW set and full (81) taeguk stacks obviously with unity just gives you so much toughness. Perma wotb with the WW set dust devils is awesome.
Pretty sure i can go higher to like 55 (maybe even more) with some good rng. On 50 i could facetank blighter, including all of his ground aoe and melee attacks.
An ancient heart slaughter is still something very fucking awesome though. Furnace is such a sought-after weapon because it doesn't force you to go for a specific element (and obviously because its terribly powerful).
I'm forced to run fucking fire because an ancient Maximus is the only 2h weapon i have (With like 10 non ancient furnaces... fml).
Gratz on the clear to Njinx, very well done and sick rng.
Yeah they need to remove pylons from GR *cough Wyatt Cheng *cough
1. I'm pretty sure dust devils are always physical damage. It doesn't say anything about elements in the set bonus but it's worth testing out i guess...
2. Last time i tested it on live it was working but i saw people claiming it's bugged on ptr so i'm not sure.
3. I don't know what's best but wastes 6p + ik 4p physical is a combo i tested and it's quite good.
Edit: Apparently the dust devils from the 6p bonus take the element of the WW rune you select so yes, you can have dust devils that do fire damage for an example.
Tested it again. With 33.33% cdr you reset on 3 mobs with about 100-300 milliseconds missing. For some reason sometimes it resets fully and sometimes there's a bit missing. Either way, those missing milliseconds don't build up due to the animation speed anyway so i am able to constantly charge on 3 mobs without any delay in between charges.
Those guides that say 37.5% or whatever are outdated afaik including the one posted above me.
Edit: I realized that i only get those 100-300 ms when i'm not using a weapon at all. When using a Maximus (2h sword) i reset 100% on 3 mobs. So i'm assuming it has something to do with attack speed. Will probably test further with different weapon types later unless someone posts a link to an up to date guide that also relates to weapon speed.

So, TL;DR: We need ~37% and not the 33.3% that seem to go round as rumor. I can only assume the 33.3% are enough when using Gogok gem.
Actually 33.33% is enough and you get it from paragon, gloves, shoulders and gem on the helm. No cdr on amulet / rings unless you want to change your build up a bit but that comes at a cost of dps.
It's amazing that you couldn't get over it. It has been about 3 years since release and you are still butthurt.
Those last of us mobs are from the PS4 version of the game. Just one easter egg for the Playstation crowd - WOW SO LAME BLIZZ TY GG GJ +1 ADULT....
I'm probably leaving after I type this.
e "it's so much better then when it was released" is clearly propaganda probably touted by Blizzard.The core of the game was/is flawed, you can't fix that.This isn't a true "Diablo" title.
played Reaper of Souls with my friend briefly on console.And about 10-15 minutes in I had to ask him why we weren't dying.(I hadn't noticed because I was so bored of the game from the start, but he convinced me to try it.)It turns out we were wearing heirloom items and I'm assuming we were getting some kind of experience boost on top of it all...or some kind of WoW bull****. (And WoW's a good game, not as good as it used to be, and it isn't Diablo)He then told me about the leveling system in the game, and how with hundreds of new iLevels or some junk, how he almost maxed out in a day.Ugh...
Most of these questions can be answered by three letters: RNG.
Blizzard has always stated that they want to keep the random element in the game. I agree that sometimes it's too much like in GR, teddy bear rifts are totally ridiculous in relation to a rift with a million anarchs, exarchs, archers, exorcists, etc...
Anyway, you can combine many of these questions into a few. Try to summarize a bit because a lot of the questions are kind of repeating the same stuff and will most likely get a very similar answer if they were to be asked in the Blizzcon QnA panel.
If they would just make the damn Scorch rune on arcane orb explode on impact... GG. People would run mm conflag + ao scorch and the damage would be awesome with splash. Problem is, that it's yet another fire focused build.
So the other option is to drastically buff magic missile with the cold rune. Make it peirce or explode on impact, increase its damage potential and area of effect. Then a cold focused build with cold mm + fo could be an awesome alternative and a much needed refreshing change to the wizard's metagame in general.
The new changes are straight up buffs but the triumv buff to AO is a bit of a downer because that means you can't go for a 2 handed weapon. Oh well, here's for hoping they change some mm runes or some AO runes because if not, i think a mm conflag build would stilll out-dps a mm+ao or cyclones / shock pulse / whatever.

Beyond that, do we have any idea what content was added to hell difficulty?
Quote from "vladdracul" »Um no? Dupes weren't ever a major issue, it's the hacks which blizzard fails at stopping.......AGAIN!
Quote from "Psyxix" »Alright, then it's settled. Lets assemble the army and march to victory! So I have 2 choices, either I'm gonna make a topic asking the dfans members what they would like in the new web design or we recruit in silence and keep the project undercover.
Quote from "luc1027" »Yes I hope too, but we can't customize it as we wish ... I expect something cool to customize stats.
Something like (idea) :
hit monsters to increase strengh.
hit many time in a row or doing critics to increase dex.
take damage from monster to increase your life / resist
use your spell to increase the amount of mana (energies?)
What do you thing ?

I meant that shield block doesn't have anything to do with attribute custmization. You went with max block with a shield, or you don't use a shield. So the customization is actually to sacrifice vitality for blocking, not vitality for dexterity.
Quote from "emilemil1" »But my confuuuusion!!!
What about meeeee!!!
Anyway... I think that it is best to have max 3 systems with much customization than 50 with a little each. The primary systems used in D2 were Skills and Items (not attributes). D3 is so far using Skills and items as primary systems, and Runes as a secondary system.
I'm ok with a secondary system for Items, or something completely new, but I would not want another secondary way to customize your skills. Or even worse; secondary on secondary, like a way to put runes in runes. It would be too much to keep track of without careful planning.
