May 29, 2012As of level 28 my build is http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/witch-doctor#WedcVY!dba!aaaaZaPosted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Please note I switch off (or more likely unsure whether to use) for either splinter poison dart or spined dart depending on if I need the mana or not.
Basically I start off a battle releasing a few Haunts to keep my health up. After I'm half way or so drained I jump into the fray and use Soul harvest which boosts my attack and replenishes my mana, then depending on the strength of the mob, and whether I'm using frogs which are close range or darts which allow me be further I adjust my range or if the mob is particular strong or many I would spam dire bats.
I use Zombie Dogs and Sacrifice as my bomb attack, when I'm swarmed by a lot of mobs or have a boss or an elite I stack up my soul harvests and blast em with 4 (with Zombie handler) for %1100 damage. And the rebirth usually, on average gives me 3 dogs back and by the time I'm ready again the cooldown is usually down.
Basically I'm asking for some tips and advise, I'm happy with soul harvest, sacrifice and dogs (though any critiques would be valued), My biggest concern is what to use as a main DD spell. In the beginning I loved dart because of the DPS but eventually as you progress the swarms of mobs gets countless and the single attack of the dart just felt overwhelming against a screen of 20+ mobs, but on the other hand where the frogs would attack more it would also require me to be upfront with the mobs which would get me majorly hurt. Also not the happiest with darts or frogs or even bats in general. If anyone can give suggestions as replacements that would be great. But please also some tips to helping me keep my mana up if you would be suggesting more mana intensive skills.
Also if you can help me with some general questions;
-This has been bothering me from when the released the skills, what is the main difference between Locust Swarm and Haunt? It doesn't really seem to have a big difference in skill mechanics, Can someone please explain to me the difference and if there is not one than why would I choose one over the other?
-Do Slow and snares stack? If I were to use Grasp of the dead and another witch doctor would too or if I demon Hunter used caltrop, or whatever, would all of those snares stack till the mobs eventually have 100% movement reduction?
I have a few more questions but I can't think of em now, If I do I'll add em in. Thanks for any help,
May 8, 2012Yea, I know I'm a bit late with the pre-order but why bother letting anyone hold my money so soon before I get my product. Also my friends held of on Diablo to play Tera for a while. Morons, so anyone want to team up? First play through plans to be Witch Doctor, prolly a summon and attack heavy build, never played beta so we'll see how skills go. I plan to play a lot but priority to work and any other life neccessities, sorry but priorities are priorities.Posted in: Clans [NA] [PC]
Also a little brain dead at the moment, any ideas for a cool battletag?
Apr 30, 2012Just wondering if you think that when they finally do come out with a console version if they will allow a pc user to play along side a console user on psn/xbl? Especially if they plan on connecting consoles with Battle.net as well.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Apr 18, 2012Basically I want it ASAP yet would like a physical copy just in case or just to have the CD. Some people say that it is cheaper to get a physical copy? That doesn't hurt, I am in US, Ny to be precise. Does anyone know where I can get it for cheaper?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Apr 16, 2012Hey guys, haven't really been active recently. No need to go on about my personal life but I've still been lurking and checking out the news. Excited about the final release but wanted to know a few things;Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I didn't bother pre-ordering it yet though I might a week or so before the release, I rather not shell out the money I don't have 3 months in advance for something that I won't get until, well 3 months later especially without any incentive or what not (other games give out bonus content or features or whatnot for example).
But more importantly, if I order the digital version from Blizz directly (as to get the game immediately on release day/night) can I still receive a physical copy, box and Cd and all without actually ordering a new one? Also now that I mentioned it, IS there any bonus to pre-ordering the game?
Dec 17, 2011I know not to expect it but didn't Blizzard say that they plan to release Heart of the Swarm and Legacy of the Void 18months after each proceeding one? I know its not 18months yet, but we're almost there and practically no news whatsoever.Posted in: Starcraft & SC2
I know this is a Diablo forum but with D3 with no solid release date how long do you think the expacs will take to be out (I doubt they'll be release any less than 6 months within each other).
Also, does Diablofans have a Starcraft sister site?

I used to dream about getting into the Diablo 3 beta, then I took an arrow to the knee.
Yea, its funny that I had this dream NOW, weeks before I was Diablo dreamless. Finally got my hands on Skryim and than the dreams start rolling in..

Nov 22, 2011To yhuipaul.. Each one had their own differing passive so picking any of them would have their advantages. And even if so, just like they do more damage and help you slay demons it doesn't necessarily mean they 'force' you to use them, they just help me kick butt easier so you wouldn't really be 'forced' to use em, they would just help you find things easier.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

So, for example, if you put an unattuned Rune into your Magic Missiles and it rolls an Indigo effect (which adds additional missiles per rank), if you later decide to take that Rune out, it will forever remain a Magic Missile splitting Rune, unusable in any other skill. Even this isn't completely set in stone though, as they've hinted that they might add a functionality to the Mystic to wipe effects off Runes.
Wont we be able to wipe effects over and over again until we get the perfect effects?
If it costs money and I'm feeling particularly unlucky one night and I need a crimson rune but it rolls an alabaster so I wipe for 10g (or whatever) it becomes an alabaster again, damn, another 10g to the enchanter, damn, gold, close but still not crimson, another 10g, alabaster again, wtf? 10g again, I NEED A DAMN CRIMSON.. I know its not that common, but there are 5 runes and there is a 20% of getting what you want each 'attunement' and sometimes it can be frustrating and costly. If it doesn't cost anything to unattune then that would be great and it would probably work out in my favor.
And you might say 'well, nox you can say the same thing about drop rates, you might need a crimson but the monsters keeping dropping golds and obsidians'. and that's true but 1- they might make certain monsters have a higher chance of dropping certain rune colors so you can specifically farm those guys, if not 2- having that rune in your hand and not having it turn into that crimson is A LOT more frustrating than just not finding one, having something so close yet so far is worse than not having it at all. but like I said, if its free or really cheap it might work out better as I won't have to search for one of every color and just reattune that one rune and just hope it what I want when I want it.
But my final words are REALLY not looking forward to the unattuned runes and though I find that random stat affixes will only drive people nuts finding the 'perfect' rune.
PS on a side note just realized that if they add both new features I hope a reattuning doesn't remove both the stat affix along with the rune type, say I get a perfect affix but the wrong rune I can just reattune just hoping for the correct rune type instead of shooting for a correct affix AS WELL (like I said there is a 20% of getting a correct rune which is something manageable when playing the slots but if they have MINIMUM 5 affixes that's another 20% so its 20% for the rune type AND 20% on the rune affix so that can become a real hell, and the number of affixes are more than that making it a lot harder to 'randomly' get that exact rune type AND affix). If anyone talks on the official forum can they please ask this question for me? Thanks
Jun 3, 2011I just think this was a publicity stunt, they did not hear our complaints nor care. They intentionally released a batch of rehashed pics knowing the fans would be pissed and than released this one so that 1) we, the fans would think that they are listening to us and 2) we would appreciate this picture so much more after receiving the last four.Posted in: News
May 22, 2011Wow, awesome. But as I played D2 a long time ago as a kid I really do not know much about Diablo in terms of lore.Posted in: News
It was mentioned in the beginning that there has been a battle between angels and demons since the beginning of time yet we don't know why, so technically we don't know who is REALLY the good guys or even the right side, for all we know it is the demons and hell who has been wronged in some way. Nor do we know what the winning side (if in deed there ever will be one) plans to do after the victory. Other than throw a party over the enemies corpses. Will they take over the opposing world? Enslavement? etc?
Also I remember that Lilith was fought in D2 (I think) but from the video, clearly she seems like a good character, she even seems more beneficial to humanity than her lover (forgot the angels name, Anerius?)
Also, it says that each side tried to coerce humanity into joining their own side yet each seemed to oppress humanity in their own way, demons through brutality and angels through harsh order and such (if I heard the video correctly), so why would humanity want to join either side? Neither sound like a good choice, the whole time your looking helping out the angels but are they really in our best interests? (Also relating to my first question).
Also not really a question but I thought it's interesting that I think nephalim might have came from a hebrew word nophal (or nephal) which means to fall or fell, and in this sense would mean The Fallen, not sure if blizzard knew that, though they probably did
May 19, 2011What the.. only one.. don't get me wrong, its nice, but honestly it looks extremely sketchy, like they said, 'oh, already time for a new one?' *draws something while listening to a song, then uploads it* there ya go.'Posted in: News
May 15, 2011Honestly, in my opinion I don't see a problem with this other than it is only useful for normal.Posted in: News
I don't think it is necessary for mp because it does what multiplayer does in sp mode, gives a friend to help you out. If anything I prefer to use mp anyway, usually player controlled characters are just plain better than NPCs anyway (think of the difficulty difference between PvP and PvE in any game).
And just for those times when I'm not online or not in the mood to be online (or with other people) I can still have a 'co-op' function and still help me out in the game. So technically they just made it a mp game even in sp, and if you don't want the extra help I am sure you can just not hire the follower.
Though the biggest issue is it not being useful in later difficulties, from a developing standpoint it would be wasteful on creating a whole mechanic that would be trashed soon after and from a playing standpoint just when the going gets tough and extra help would actually be useful my help just dies....

We actually got an exclusive confirmation on the items qualities and colors during diablocast ep. 5 which I have updated on our wiki here: http://www.diablowiki.com/Items_(Diablo_III)#Item_Quality
By Socket, there is a typo, it should say 'no' longer.. instead of longer, tried to edit it myself but don't see how.
Apr 20, 2011Scyber, being that you're so tight with Bash and he keeps answering you, and you said that the DH resource is being finished can you ask, or do you know if the other classes are 100% complete and if we can get ANY info on those? Also did they mention any resource globes and how and if they will be implemented?Posted in: News

Here on diablofans you get the news at first. Thanks for the passion and patience guys. I like reading new stuff from you!
I am really looking forward to the beginning of may. Hopefully they will announce the beta date. And I like the approach of Blizzard to hide all interesting stuff from us before releasing the game finally.
And if there is something about the facebook thing, we will know after ~175000 LIKES.

This website is going to drive me crazy.....
A metaphor perhaps....
So this girl says she wants to have sex with you, but you have to wait, and god will you, because she is what you have always wanted.
Years pass, and she is still stringing you along, but you know when you finally get it, it will be worth it.
In the time thats passed, she constantly is teasing you, a dirty text message here and there, and once you start losing hope, I naughty picture comes your way! OK WERE BACK IN BUSINESS!
But still, nothing, just the teasing, and occasional visual to keep you leashed.
It's been 10 years now, and the teasing has become more consistent, more often, and promises of the day soon.....
During times like these, you often hit the bar, swallow your pride, and go for the average because it will hold you over for now. But damnit Blizzard! Lose the Chastity belt and let her free!!!!
Were talking about video games by the way......
nice methapor of the wait of Diablo III :sweat:
You said information = girl is teasing you, final game = you having ... with her but what about the beta...something between?
Foreplay/make out session + a bit more than that but no sex?
