re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

I kind of feel bad that this game didn't suck me in. I've got 2 chars somewhere in nightmare mode, and, gah, I dunno... I just don't feel the need to keep playing. I mean, the same shit over and over, just harder?

It's funny, I played Diablo 2 and the expansion, but I honestly don't remember how far I got into it. I'm guessing not much past the final act in normal.

I was hoping this would keep me occupied until the next WoW expansion, but it just failed to get it's claws into me

So it seems life on hit is all over the place with attacks...I found this link showing what I am talking about...

so if you are going to use life on hit...be sure you use the right skill..this happens with all classes...
noticed this as well. i got a new bow and have been running with entangling shot / chain gang. needless to say if i'm attacking a single enemy, i wasn't seeing anything. going to have to look at this chart and explore some more.

hit me up if/when i can get on again (crazy internet problems at home). i have some bows that you can look at fox

sweet...

yeah it looks like chain gang only gives you 20% of life on hit per enemy...shock collar gives 160% per target..

I must admit this one has me stumped on value.
They need to add more stat fields for the AH search. I hate having to manually look through all the listings to find something with a 4th / 5th stat thatI want.


On another note, I forgot how short Act 4 was. I am now at Diablo and he moves much faster than I remember... Hopefully he doesn't enrage as I will probably have to run around in circles for 10 minutes to kill him. I did however learn that his melee one shots my WD!

I don't understand why certain skills just don't seem to work with LOH. IE my WD's zombie bears skill never seems to register LOH.

re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

So my new pc is going to be here next week because I am fighting over my computer all the time with my kids. (GTX 690 baby!!!) so has anyone heard when you will be able to sell your character? My son has a level 40 barbarian he has been working on, and I would love for him to get to keep it (I plan on buying another copy of diablo for him)

I notice a lot of my Wizard spells don't count, or only count for a small percent of LoH - but my LoH is low and I am only lvl 41. I need to buy one of those top end gems on the AH, found one on the RMAH for $9 but I still can't pay RM for a game item.

re: Diablo III + Reaper of Souls (multi-platform)

if you max level your jeweler, can you combine all levels of gem?
The reason i ask is because i see some recipes for gems.
If you upgrade your jewler to the max, do you also need a recipe in order to combine the higher level gems? (the ones that don't drop even in inferno)

Higher level gems need recipes.

Yeah, I am not sure I can stomach spending cash on an in game item. Even if I sell crap on the rmah, I don't know if I could stand to spend the credit on in game items.

It only lowered the price on perfect square and under. Everything above that is still outrageous

If you know what to look for, they have not opened the commodity market up yet.

Search for low lvl items with awesome stat you are looking for, like the 500 LoH sword w/ 10DPS.

Looking at the GAH is what got me to look at RMAH for gems, at least those you can recycle. Last time I looked stars were starting out at around 20M gold.

I am almost level 60 with the Demon Hunter...it is a lot of fun to play, but my god they take glass cannon to a new level. If I make one mistake, and a monster so much as farts in my direction I die...lol...and this is on hell. It does not seem to matter if I have 60% reduction on all resistance...and near that on armor...you mess up one time you are in trouble...

don't get me wrong, I don't die that much, it is just that if I make a mistake it is hard to get out of it...with my monk if I messed up I always felt like I could still get out of it...

Wizards are tougher than Demon Hunters...the DH has one job...do massive damage, and stay out of trouble...

Which is the wizard's job too. But Blizzard loves hunter type classes and hates wizards/mages (at least the current group - old D2 mages were unmatched DPS).
