Haven't actually looked at Challenge Rifts and don't have any plans to. The idea is completely uninteresting to me and I can't think of any tweaks to it that would make me interested.

That's exactly what "QOL" means. Quality Of Life. It's not a functional change, it's not a change that allows you do something you couldn't do before (e.g. store more items). It's a Quality Of Life change: it saves you tedious clicking and dragging etc. when you want to change to a different build.
it's actually not a QOL change at all. In fact it diminishes it. I already had this discussion with another person on Dfans post Blizzcon.
What the armory does in terms of coding language is point an array towards your inventory. Its like using vlookup in excel. It looks up the info in your stash and uses that info for the armory.
So yes, you can have multiple builds per character slots. However, it WILL NOT free up any inventory in your stash. This is what people actually wanted, a way to free up stash space. Because what eats it up the most is multiple variations of the same set item due to RNG.
imho it's a nice boon for anyone who uses separate gear/skills for e.g. speedfarm vs. hard content. Or for anyone who wants to try out a different build and be able to simply switch back to their "main" with a click of a button.

I hate multiplayer and never play it, but agree 100% with Shapookya. You should NEVER encourage players not to play with other people if they enjoy doing so.

I guessed S1/S2. Not sure exactly though. It was early in the seasons, though. Since then been all solo.
Since solo and multiplayer are completely different games, with multiplayer progression being 10x to 100x faster, you really have to play 100% solo or 100% multiplayer. If you try to mix, every second you spend playing solo is time spent gimping yourself. But if you play 100% solo you can enjoy that very different game.

PoE definitely has some interesting mechanics, like the skill gems + support gems + linkages between them.
But I simply never found the action to be anywhere near as much fun as D3. I spent some dozens of hours playing it, then went back to D3.

Typical cheat's logic.
Is it really a competition when you are awarded nothing? Is there a secret I got top 10 in s5 club that I don't know about?
Instead of worrying about what others are doing, just try to see how high you can go on your limited playtime and see where that gets you or compete against friends and put a wager on it if you really want it to mean something. . I'm not retarded, I just worry about real life things more.
If someone is so obsessed with how well they do relative to others that they're willing to cheat to win, well that's just fine.
But if someone points out that these cheating scum are damaging the competitive spirit of the game, then they're a bad person who is too worried about "not real life things".

I'm a Blizzard nerd, I'm playing Diablo and WoW, and I play Hearthstone at lunchtime at work.
If you're interested in games like Diablo, I checked out Devilian recently, but frankly found it a massive disappointment. Had absolutely no desire to launch it again after spending one evening playing it, and uninstalled it.

Please don't tar all casual players with that brush. I'm 100% casual, will never push any leaderboard rank, and I care about this thread, because in my opinion, you get caught botting once, it should be a permaban for your entire battle.net account. Bye bye WoW characters, bye bye Hearthstone collection, bye bye everything.
You want to cheat? Get a deck of cards and cheat at solitaire.
Jan 22, 2016Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Care to explain the difference? I haven't seen the slightest change in Blizzard's stance on botting for the last decade+. Every now and then, they ban a bunch of people. For months in between, people whine that they do nothing. That was how it worked in D2 era, how it worked all through WoW's life, and how it works now with D3 and Hearthstone.

There are few things more unattractive than throwing a temper tantrum, not because something bad happened to you, but because something good happened to someone else.
Answer me this question: are you, as a non-season player, going to have less stash space as a result of this change, or exactly the same amount as you have now?

My day job also includes looking after a website, and I feel your pain. Spammer truly are the scum of the earth, they shit up absolutely everything on the internet with their garbage, and keeping that crap away from the eyes of your actual users is a massive and thankless job.
So.. thanks for doing it, DiabloFans mods!

But they do? Increased beneficial effect duration, increased negative effect duration, and increased proc chance. Now, how valuable the actual bonuses from angelic/demonic/ancestral power will be, I don't know, but they do provide an actual bonus themsleves.

I like the "must have cleared GR70 solo" requirement, because it means I'll never be eligible for one and thus I can pretend they don't exist in the game at all.
Before it was a bad idea that would negatively affect my enjoyment. Now it's a bad idea I can comfortably ignore.

I was quite looking forward to Set Dungeons, but unfortunately, what they've delivered reminds me of nothing so much as Guild Wars 2's jumping puzzles.
Sad to say, I don't think I have experience even one moment of pleasure from a Set Dungeon. Just frustration, aggravation, and then success giving a feeling of "thank god I NEVER have to do that again" rather than satisfaction at a challenge overcome.
I don't know if GloryJak's "80%" number is accurate or not, but I know that I'm one of his "80%" group.

Is there any difference between a Death's Breath farming build and any other fast farming build, other than the presence of the Sage's 3-piece bonus?
Aug 4, 2015st0rmie posted a message on Patch 2.3 Preview - Adventure Mode, Blue Posts Round-Up, Diablo 3 Sells Over 30 MillionPosted in: News
Haha, I remember when D3 sold 3.5 million in the first day, all the haters screeched and cried and stamped their tiny feet and insisted that it only sold so many because of all the suckers that bought it because they loved D2, and all the WoW players that got it with a one-year sub.
Wonder what excuses they can dream up for 30 million? I'm sure they'll never, ever be able to admit that it sold that many because it's a bloody good game and most of the people who play it give it great word of mouth.

I know a lot of people say "remove trials, just let you choose any GR level up to the highest you've reached before".
How about - hear me out - don't remove trials, but let you exchange a trial key for a GR key of the highest you've gotten from a trial?
So you have the option, either do the trial and try to get a better result than you've ever gotten before. Or if you don't think that's likely (e.g. your character is no more powerful than when you got your previous best), just reclaim your previous best GR key.

I thought the point of Eras was that patch changes would make records from one patch not really comparable to records from another. So why did they start a new Era a couple of days before the patch??

Not a massive deal.. but a little disappointing.

Selective memory? I remember plenty of complaints about Enigma in Diablo 2 and how mandatory it was for all other classes to get Teleport.
Oct 26, 2014I guess the interesting question is, why are the top performers using something which is not widespread in its popularity?Posted in: News
Is it because it only shines with certain gear sets which the vast majority of players haven't collected? Is it because it's harder to play and thus only superior if you're a great player? Is it because it is effective but un-fun? Is it just because the unwashed masses are lolnoob?
I'd love to know (and not being much of a DH player myself, I'm pretty much completely ignorant of their build options).
