General Discussion

23 May 2012 Forum Guidelines - Please Read Welcome to the Diablo III discussion forums! This forum is here to provide you with a friendly environment where you can discuss all aspects of Diablo III with your fellow players. Community forums work best when participants treat their fellow posters with respect and courtesy. Therefore, we ask that you take the time to read through the forum Code of Conduct before posting. Search The new search function at the top of the Diablo III community site is extremely robust. Please be sure to use it to look for similar topics, blog posts, or web pages that may contain the answer before creating your forum topic. Making a new thread on an existing subject will likely result in your thread being deleted. If you continue to repost it you're likely to have your posting privileges suspended for spamming. Worst of all, you'll be making the other forum goers upset that you didn't take a minute to search before posting. Rating The new rating system can be used to promote positive discussion, and demote unhelpful posts, or even report posts that violate the forum code of conduct. By hovering over a post you'll be presented with a thumbs up, and a thumbs down icon. Clicking the 'thumbs down' icon you can choose from a few options. Dislike will rate the comment down. If enough people dislike a post it will be darkened, or with a lot of dislikes it will be hidden. You can also quickly report a post as trolling or spam, or use the report function to fill out a more comprehensive description of the violation. You can only rate each post once. Use it wisely to help foster a positive and helpful forum community. Guidelines In addition to the Forum Code of Conduct (, here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community. While these do technically fall within the bounds of the Code of Conduct, these cover more specific examples of common errors that will lead to thread deletions or posting privileges being revoked. The Diablo III forums are for discussion of topics directly related to Diablo III The forums here are specifically to discuss the game and related topics. Any topics not related to Diablo III, or Blizzard are subject to deletion. Don't post in all capital letters, use a misleading title, excessive punctuation, non-standard symbols, etc. While everyone wants their posts read, we ask you to refrain from using these types of tactics in order to bring more people to your thread. Let your post stand on its own merit. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Using the words Blizzard, Blue, or any community team members name in a thread topic to gather attention is frowned upon Everyone would like Blizzard to read and acknowledge his or her post, and we understand that. However, use of such words in the topic does not help that come to pass. Please make your thread title relevant to the post subject. Threads violating this guideline are subject to deletion. Note that threads discussing e.g. the Blizzard authenticator or Blizzard’s latest press release are allowed to have Blizzard in the title as it’s then relevant to the discussion. Posting "First" or IBTL constitutes as spamming You will be suspended if you create a post that is intended to call out that you achieved a specific reply number in a thread. This is considered spamming. Posting IBTL (in before the lock) is not helpful and if you feel a thread should be moderated please use the rating button to do so. Posting TLDR or L2P constitutes as trolling Posting TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) is saying you don’t care about a player’s post. Posting L2P (Learn to Play) mocks the player for their skill or experience level rather than provide constructive input on the post itself. Both are considered trolling and will lead to a suspension.Zhydaris2 23 May 2012

4d A Message from Chris Metzen [POSTED ON BEHALF OF CHRIS METZEN] I had just turned twenty years old when I started working at Blizzard. Seems like a lifetime ago. Guess it was. Those first few years were the start of a very grand adventure for me, one that would take me around the world, introduce me to thousands of wonderful geeks just like me—and ultimately shape the course of my adult life. Of course when I started, I had absolutely no idea what I was doing. I had no idea how to make games or build entertainment products.… But I had an insatiable passion for ideas. For stories. For heroes. My only real training before joining Blizzard was the long-running D&D campaign I had with my closest friends—Sam, Mike P., Daniel, and Mikey C. (you know who you are, boys…HAMRO!). Building ideas—vast worldscapes, characters, and plotlines with my friends was my first great love. I lived for it. It was a safe space amid the tension and change of some rough teenage years. The grand refuge of D&D was a glorious meeting of minds and imaginations where I felt I truly belonged. It was a space where friendship and imagination were inextricably linked. The sharing of ideas on the fly, the crazy, unexpected turns other players would take—it stretched our imaginations in ways we’d never have dreamt of on our own. I loved how roleplaying through adventures taught us so much about each other—and, more often than not, ourselves. Imagining together helped us make sense of the crazy world we were growing up in. It made us stronger together. I wouldn’t really understand the depth of it for many years, but I had learned an important truth from my friends back then: Creativity is relational. Looking back at my years at Blizzard, I see now how profoundly this idea has shaped my career. I see how profoundly my friends and coworkers at Blizzard have shaped me as a person. For nearly twenty-three years I’ve had the very distinct privilege of shaping worlds and building games with the brightest creative minds in entertainment. I’ve walked with giants (and stood on some giants’ shoulders, too). In short, I’ve had the time of my life. I pretty much had the coolest job ever—but the truth is, sometimes it was really hard. Building games with dozens of brilliant, passionate alpha-geeks with their own red-hot instincts and perspectives can be pretty tricky. Coming to consensus about certain design decisions, story motifs, or courses of art direction takes a lot of communication, patience, and “give and take.” It stretches you. Sometimes it wasn’t all that pretty. But engaging with your teammates and collaborating through the potential quagmire of all that creative tension is where the real magic happens. It’s not just the decisions you come to—or even the final shape of the product you craft.… It’s bigger than that—and infinitely more important. True collaboration builds trust—and trust is the basis of all lasting relationships. With trust you build more than just a great product. You build a TRIBE…that can build anything. A family of craftsmen. That’s what Blizzard has been for me. My second family, through all of life’s ups and downs, it’s always been there. The great, geeky backdrop of my life. I don’t just mean “the job” or even the creative mission—but the people. The people who over and over lifted me up, believed in me—and pushed me to find my potential as both an artist and as a leader all these years. To my Blizzard brothers and sisters…I wish I had the words. Everything just sounds…trite. All I can think of is… You helped me believe in myself and achieve every one of my wildest dreams. I am forever grateful to you. I love you all with everything I’ve got. Thank you. And to all of you out there in Blizzard’s vast gaming community—those of you I’ve had the pleasure of meeting in person and all of you around the world I’ve only heard about—thank you. Thank you all for letting me be a special part of your community. For letting me belong with you. We’ve shared countless adventures together and I’ve always been overwhelmed and humbled by your passion for our games as well your commitment to each other. Thank you for all the BlizzCon hugs, smiles, handshakes, and stories over the years. You will never know how much you’ve all touched my heart and inspired me to give my all into this craft. With that said, I’ll try to get down to the point, here. I’ve come to a turn in the road. A new, far quieter chapter in my life looms ahead. I am retiring. Yup. Hangin’ up my guns. Clockin’ out. Takin’ the last gryphon out of Stormwind. You get the picture. Crazy, I know. It’s a massive change for me, but it’s one I’ve been looking forward to for a while now. It’s ironic given the fact that things have never been better or more energized at Blizzard. Just this year alone has been incredible. Legion’s arrival. The launch of Overwatch. The Warcraft feature film. I’ve never been more proud of Blizzard and the quality of its products than I am now. It’s remarkable that even after all these years we can still reach new heights and take the world for an amazing ride. I believe Blizzard’s future is brighter than ever. I won’t lie—it’s going to be really hard stepping away from these worlds that I love. But I’m content that I’m leaving them in the hands of the most passionate, talented, and dedicated craftsmen ever assembled. I can’t wait to see where Blizzard’s worlds go next—and to experience them first-hand like everyone else does. As a fan. As an adventurer. Right back to the start. That’s just so cool… The reason I use the word “retire” is because I’m not going to some other company or starting up new projects or anything remotely like that. It’s been a long, amazing stretch of years. Now it’s time to slow it down. Rest. Lay around on the couch and get fat. Well, fatter.… Seriously though, I’ll be focusing on the one thing that matters most to me in all the world—my family. They’re the core of my life and the source of my deepest joy and inspiration. In addition to raising our two little ones, we recently welcomed our new baby into the family! Being home with them all, having time and space to really live…to love my wife with all my strength…that’s my career now. And I’ve never been happier. Ever. :) Peace out, y’all. I love you all. I’ll see you online. - ChrisVaneras7 4d

26 Jul Upcoming: End of Era 6 Season 6 has now ended and, following close behind, Era 6 is coming to a close. In Diablo III, an “Era” refers to a specific period of time in which non-Seasonal leaderboards are active. At the end of an Era, all current non-Seasonal leaderboard standings will be wiped and players will be unable to attain new leaderboard ranks until a new Era begins. As with Seasons, players will be able to view previous rankings in-game and as well as on our website. However, unlike Seasons, Eras do not have a set duration and may or may not occur on or around a patch cycle or in tandem with a Season. Era 6 will be ending at the same time Season 7 launches on Friday, August 5 at 17:00 CEST. Era 7 will begin immediately afterwards. As Season 6 will be ending shortly, heroes that have become non-Seasonal will be able to participate in both the tail end of Era 6 as well as the start of Era 7. For more information on the end of the Season and the season rollover process, click here. Thank you for participating in Era 6! We look forward to seeing you in Sanctuary.Vaneras0 26 Jul

10h Diablo 4 Diablo 3 is a disaster!!!! It is not to be compared with Diablo 2 at all!! Diablo 3 changed the whole concept and game play of the diablo 1 and 2 universe. It became sooo easy that they put health globes here and there and every time u kill an enemy. The may is not random at all so when I play I feel like a robot who knows the road and knows what will happen next and which way to go. No adventure!!! The graphics! HE HE HE HE HEEEEEE.... I felt like playing a super mario game with lots of rainbows and lights. and when i wanna open a door, i can see what's behind the door... TOO much light. No darkness... What's with the cartoonish graphics it's DIABLO we r talking about no disneyland. The game is really a big disappointment, after we, my brother and i, waited 10 years for this game, we paid lots of money on our computers and the DVDs 2 games, 2 expansions, the game appeared to be awful! it is not diablo, it is something else based on some diablo 2 features. Sorry blizzard, but you ruined your game and you pushed many fans away to look for others game like Path of exile. I dont mean im playing PoE, but i see everyone is doing so... Now, we almost are in 2015, and we are still playing diablo 2, and as a proof go check both diablo 2 and diablo 3 servers and see the difference hehe Besides, TILL NOW, you cannot fix the stuttering in the game. I have a great QUOZMIO laptop, the game was working just fine, after the latest update, the game in unplayable! WTF?? Anyway Im really disappointed and please, if you ever think of making Diablo 4, think twice and do it like diablo 2. Just copy paste it with some update for the graphics would be fine. Thank you in advance for the effort that you are going to put in Diablo 4. LoL, if ever!Xen10 10h
17h Old Seasons Portraits In Future Patch? Greetings , i ve been wondering if there s any possibility in the future to gain access to older season portrait. Despite i do understand that the whole ''off combat cosmetic reward'' is meant to award players for their dedication at a specific time / season into the game , i feel like some portraits are too unique / diablo themed for someone to lack . (eg S3 ) So any sort of recycling around possible portrait rewards or possibility for a rare spawn like rainbow portrait , would be really appreciated while giving a pet or a FoS to those that actually got it at the current season . ThanksWertom1 17h
21h Option to disable screen shake and white flash Hello! I have found myself getting red eyes and feeling motion sickness/dizzy after a few hours of playing everyday since the new expansion launched. I noticed on the forums that a few people had the same problem as me with especially the white flashing from hitting mobs and screen shaking, so I was wondering if anyone know any way I can disable this graphical effects for myself? I would love to play with every graphic feature enabled since it looks amazing, but unfortunately my eyes can't take it anymore.mellan6664 21h
21h Diablo 4? Hold your horses Blizz After beatdown D3 receives for its shallowness you want to further destroy once great franchise? I would think twice. So far Path of Exile is doing better job despite being free than what you guys doing for money. Concerned fanPanmisiek16 21h
22h New forum layout? I personally don't like the new forum layouts. It looks incomplete and doesn't offer what the previous layout did. One example if you hover with your mouse over a post it used to show you the original date of the post so you know its an old one from a year ago where somebody commented on today but on the new layout it doesn't ,you actually have to go in to the post to see when it was originally created. It used to show popular topics of discussion and now no more. It just looks incomplete and rushed. Seems like D3 gets less and less attention from Blizz.Amaranth9 22h

1d Looking for fellow players to farm Cosmic Wings Hello, As the title says I'm looking for 2-3 RELIABLE players to farm rainbow goblins for the Cosmic Wings. I myself am a serious grinder, have a "chicken" build witch doctor which I farm everyday for 4-5 hours but very rarely I find a rainbow goblin; I also plan to make a monk for the dash build since it seems more fast with the right items. Obvious I have no intentions to have leechers who afk and wait for invite whenver we find a goblin. At the end of the day we want the wings and nothing else but it makes so much faster if 4 people r farming it the same time. Have to add that I farm on seasonal char and I farm in the afternoon around 7-8pm Paris time, untill late in the night. Tx for reading.neiKo3 1d
1d Character slots: need more Are there any future plans to allow players to acquire extra character slots should they wish to, should it be with microtransactions or some kind of expanded edition? I want more slots and I would gladly pay for it. EDIT - shortened and fully rephrased (and please, if you gonna vote this down give an explanation why).madgiraf19 1d

2d Gibbering Gemstone Hey guys. Been 3 years since I played. Just getting back to it, created a hardcore seasonal char. Just finished all the quests and got 70. Wanted to try out whimsyshire, got all parts relatively easily but the gibbering gemstone I have farmed for a whole day repeatedly and no drops. Does it still drop by Chiltara in the Caverns of Frost level 2? Or has it moved somewhere else like a chest or something??? Any help will be much appreciated thanks.Cyberellium8 2d
2d trancelater blizzz why dont you make a trancelater program for this game i allways join game with players that dont understand one word what i am saying in english so maybe in the new seasson, make a program that trancelate, so player can understand one a otherdavidjens9 2d
2d Why is still nothing done about cheaters? I reported cheaters days ago now and yet they still continue to be on the leader-boards,making new characters,and still cheating!?! Hundreds of them not just a few. Its not even hard to see they cheat,hacked weapons,all maxed out legendary gems,time played 1008 hours,which is the exact amount of time played since season started if they played 24/7 without a single break for the past 5 weeks or so. Its clear to see the hacked weapons in their profiles,so why has nothing changed? Anyway i would like an answer please from a moderator or someone who works at blizzard please and not a line of trolls and cheaters flaming my post. We should be able to expect some chance of ever getting anywhere on a leader-board without it being riddled with cheaters or whats the point?serazor15 2d
2d Is Diablo 3 dying? Since the 2.1.1 update, I´ve only seen about 10-15 players on adventure mode from torment I and upward were I usually seen about 300+. It is because of the change of gameplay like increased blood shard cost, there is better games, or just because you want to go back to the all mighty Diablo 2? No I am not a WoW player so please quit asking me that. I ain no fat player that quit job to get more gaming hours and dream about a fantasy female blood elf or whatever it is named. *update: I`ve seen about 40 somewhere players on Torment VICyborg29 2d
3d Well Blizz is still keeping taps So what is the grumpy man complaining about, today well this <input type="hidden" name="!@#" value And what is that? well its an old school cookie, that send the typed info to blizzard, and where did i find it well have you tried blizz streaming when you click facebook link to connect to your facebook account your login info AND PASSWORD is sent to some Blizzard server for keeps, so if you know it or not you just gave Blizzard your login info to FB without your knowledge. I have written this before and all i get is flame post from the firm bliz hired to make people who discover these things look like and troll but as i wrote a year ago all your browsing history and passwords to your personal sites are stored for safe keep on a blizzard server is'nt that nice so if you forget your password to any site just mail blizz they have it. And how did i find this well my D3 want's to upgrade but keep getting error so i thought i would stream my task manager and show this i have 3 x Helper.exe running and 1 Agent.exe but heres the kicker they run from different folders "version" of Bnet app so ofc the D3 will not update blizzard has tied both feet together and is trying to jump on their nose but my complain is even after i quit Bnet and tell it to exit completely it does not do that the helper.exe and agent.exe stays up so either my and your personal stuff is being indexed or blizzard has idiots working for them my guess BOTH. i am tired of this F.U.B.A.R blizz seems to have more info on Americans and European then any Agency so. MY personal belief we all well most know about stu x net "mistyped on purpose on my next visitor will have a badge saying US Marshal we are confiscating your pc well i think Blizz is collecting info for "someone" "my personal beliefs" have no proof thank youkimkl2 3d
3d Bulgarian Fansite Hello. Me and couple of friends who love the game and play it a lot, are always helping the Bulgarian community. On 25th February 2015 we launched brand new and modern phpBB-based non-profitable forum about Diablo. It's hosted at: Translating news, feeds, tweets, theory-crafting builds, explaining meta and so on - these tasks are already part of our daily schedule. Slow but steady our forum grows - we already got almost 300 different topics and over 160 users to this date. We've also over-passed 3000 posts. One of our goals is to become an official fansite and listed among them. Would you recommend us what we need to do in order to achieve this? Some response and advices from @Lylirra, @Nevalistis or @Kauza (or other community managers) would be appreciated. Best regardsDimcho5 3d
3d Why Diablo 2 was awesome game? Because it was horror scary dark game not cartonish one. When I played first time Diablo 2 I was soo scared .I was afraid to pick up a hero from picking screen that's how good it was.Just go now to picking screen of D2 and you will see this atmosphere.That's why D2 is called Diablo.TheJoker20 3d
3d Diablo 3 single player campaign is too easy!! I've just play Diablo 3 this year. The graphic, music, game-play is great! compare to the previous Diablo 2 BUT... I wonder is it only me or everyone feel the same that this Diablo 3 is too easy??? even with 0% chance to get magic item u can easily get these items! and IT'S TOO EASY TO KILL EVERY POWERFUL FOES!....I can kill Maghda in just split second and defeating Belial with only few hits?? I don't think I'm PRO here.. This game is just too easy compare to Diablo 2..Anyone else feel the same??RsdFnd38 3d
3d Does it get harder? Hey, so me and a couple of friends are playing the game for the first time and just completed the first act on expert, with no real challenge seen anywhere. I'm assuming this isn't because of our aptitude (watch us play Overwatch and you'll see what I mean) so I was wondering whether the game gets considerably harder any time soon? We've just interrupted the two rituals at the start of Act 2 and still aren't finding any challenge. It's making the game a little tedious when you steamroll through everything, including the bosses.empo1166 3d
3d Season reward question I have a question do you only receive the roland set as crusader? I'm asking cuz i was interested in starting again but i wanted to play thorns specc with the invoker set but if that is not available i dont see my self playing a build i do not enjoy until i get one considering the rng it takes.Roos12 3d
4d TurboHUD This is a call for the heavens to reply to all of us. Many people use TurboHUD, a Diablo 3 Addon. I personally want to use it but have read that it's a very grey area so I have not yet used it. So, Blizzard Employee, Developer, Communicator, Cleaner, please answer the question to all life the univers and everything. Is TurboHUD bannable? End this hellish endless discussion that all us nephalems are going through. I beg you.Unseenchaos135 4d
4d Cooperative events act V not working? Can someone here help me? I have tried to get cooperative archievements done, and I only need 2 archievements from avt 2. That is "SWAMP RATS" and "DISORDERLY CONDUCT". When I make the events I am missing for those 2 archievements, they dont tick from list. What is wrong? I joing a public game and make sure we are both there. I have also tried a normal game and invited a player to make the event together with me. It doesn´t tick either. So I kinda need some help or is it just bugged? Kind regards McGregersMcGregers3 4d
5d I do not like Diablo 3 I loved Diablo and Diablo 2. So I bought Diablo 3 at launch. The game experience was lackluster and not what I hoped. But I had to wonder why, because everything seemed to be in place. I am trying to muster the energy to install the game again and play it again, yet then I remember how I did not like it the first time. And I wonder why? What is there in Diablo 3 that makes me not like it? Thinking about it, I came to the following conclusions: 1.- Too easy. I like monsters to be challenging and then get easier when I get some powerful piece of equipment or a new skill. Later new monsters appears that are difficult to beat again, and things get easier when I get new equipment or skills. Instead, I have a feeling I am killing everything on my path with ease, and gaining new skills just gives me different options to steamroll over the monsters. I heard there is an option now to make things more difficult now and tailor the experience? I do not want to make a full run before things start to get interesting. (update: I downloaded the game and there is indeed an option to make things more difficult, so this is a definite improvement) 2. Items. I like to find a weapon with a really useful skill that makes battles easier. Then later I find another weapon with good stats and I have to decide: what do I keep? the weapon with good stats or the weapon with the useful skill? But in Diablo 3, all items have a ton of skills and it is the general sum of all these skills that make the item worthwhile or not. I do not like that. 3. Not enough random. Somehow it feels like in previous Diablo games the maps were more random than in Diablo 3. Eveything is so expected now. 4. Too many stuff that distracts me. I want to kill monsters and advance in a zen-like state, and some demon's face poping up to tell me whatever bull!@#$ is both distracting, annoying.and breaks me out of "the zone". When I am about to fight a boss, I want him to fight me in the world map, not in some special zone designed for the boss and instanced away from the rest of the world. I wish the characters could be just silenced. I do not need the game to tell me what they are talking about while they wander around. I can imagine that myself and I do a better job than any script or voice actor they have. We are here to kill demons, not to have idle chats about our mission. I want enemies to die and drop loot, I do not want to wait for them to say their dying sentence before dropping the loot. Just shut up, everyone. Then going back and forth to take items and place them somewhere, animations of people doing stuff... why all this annoying crap. All I want is to advance and fight. 5. Characters can be female or male. It is not that this bothers me specially while playing, but makes me wonder what were the developers thinking? Why on earth did they think I was not ok with playing a female amazon? Why did they think I would be traumatized if I could not play as a male amazon? Somehow I have the feeling developers do not really understand what do I enjoy about playiong a Diablo game, and that undermines my confidence on their capacity to deliver a satisfactory experience. I am not their target user anymore and they are devoting time and resources to features I did not ask for. This is just feedback on how I feel and why I stopped playing, I do not want the game to change to suit my tastes. If you are enjoying the game, good for you. It is just I do not.Gabriel30 5d

6d Some questions from someone with the Starter edition I was able to try the game with the starter edition before buying it and I'm really enjoying it. Now I'm just waiting for my hard copy to come in the mail. I just have 2 questions since some features are locked for me in the meantime. 1)Are all the difficulty levels always available to choose from, or do you have to beat an act on Normal before you can unlock a higher difficulty? I'm a noob to Diablo but Normal was way too easy, so I'm wondering if I can start on a higher difficulty for Act 2. 2)What is the best thing to do with the random blues I find? Vendor them, turn them into crafting mats or sell them on the AH? I can't see the AH yet so I don't know what prices are like/how fast stuff gets sold on it. Can I turn a profit or at least break even on crafting items?Xenon54 6d

6d Advice on playing with ASD I cant work out the best way to play this game..! Please bear with the explanation... I'm not really a frothing at the mouth, must squeeze every last fps and piece of data to make the best build kind of gamer... Nor am I a what does this button do technophobe (nerdophobe?) I just play the game, play solo ONLY and tend not to follow other peoples builds because I can get very 'set' in which skills I like and don't use and so on. I don't have the reactions to be a great player and, if I'm honest, probably don't understand the use of some of the skills properly (another reason I wouldn't use them) so I tend to struggle more at higher levels. By explanation for a lot of this, I have ASD and so trying new things, breaking patterns and the like are very difficult. Multiplayer would be almost impossible because of how I think and play. When it comes to farming and doing speed runs or item runs, even some of the achievements (play through in an hour... I can't, my brain just doesn't allow for the concept of missing bits of the map or not exploring areas) they are virtually impossible. I feel like I'm missing huge chunks of the game because of the way things are set up. Take as an example the Whimsyshire level. I haven't seen any of the needed item drops, so I've never played the area. I've never completed a set of items either So... My question is simple... Is there a good way to play this game solo, without cheating, but still actually experience things like the hidden levels that everyone else seems to be able to do. I'm guessing already some smart alec response will be made, I'd rather you didn't. If your answer is going to be some variation on 'get over it' or 'just change how you play, its not difficult' then please read up on autism before you post it. If the answer is just take the time, fair enough, I'm just hoping there's something I've missed.Xoanon60 6d

23 Sep A few noob questions Hello, i just got diablo 3 a few days ago and i love it all. I have a question about what can i do at endgame. I don't have the expansion and sadly i won't be able to get it soon. Can i earn paragon or is it only for players with the expansion? How many paragon lvls can one have? Is it really infinite? Is it worth collecting any gear at 60 or should i lvl up my heroes and wait until i can get the expansion? Are the seasonal awards only for players with the expansion?Mathias1 23 Sep

22 Sep several issues 1: getting to level or rank 20 in greater rift levels. I keep getting the joyous message that I have completed level 12. Next should be level 13 I should think. But no. lvl 12 it stays. What to do??? 2: Green items. I keep getting the same items of the same set. Not encouraging. Any item of another set is fine, does not need to be one of the 6-item sets. But three times in a row getting the same item of the same set??? 3: upgrade legendary gems: As above, more or less. ALL my three attempts to upgrade a legendary gem failed in a row. This is most discouraging. Yours, pussycat (Dutch for Poezenbeest) O, and btw. I do not have time to play the game 24/7. I have job, need money for mortgage, insurance, food, and of course my cat... @Blizzard: ????poezenbeest7 22 Sep

22 Sep Read this when doing account rollback I did a rollback on my account and wanted to share the experience about this mystical event in case you are wondering how it works. Doing the rollback happens as a selfservice and you can find the option from battlenet support site. A rollback can be used 3 time per account and it makes all your items bound to that account. In my case when doing the rollback I got two different savepoints to choose from. (These savepoints are determined by blizzard and you can not effect them) All the info about the save points become visible once you click them open: the date of the savepoint, all the heroes you had up till that point, money and mail. So if you are looking for some lost season rollover items (like me) that was lost in the mail you should choose a savepoint which shows that your mail is full of items. Doing the rollover is a permanent action and it doesn't bring back your dead Hardcore heroes but it works miracles on lost items.Revani0 22 Sep
21 Sep Chiltara and Gibbering Gemstone drop rate Because all other topics are from a long time ago, here's a new one (now that Whimsyshire is relevant again). It seems that the rare spawn Chiltara is now 100% there, if you get the Caverns of Frost, but she just won't drop the bloody gemstone. I've been farming for this since beginning of last season, and even after probably 10k kills, it still hasn't dropped. I've had all other items drop randomly multiple times, but not the one I actually need. Is the drop rate 0,000001% or just the RNGeezus doesn't agree much? Edit: Well, what do you know. All it took is posting a comment in the forums and the thing dropped.Vilieto43 21 Sep

20 Sep Ancient items worse than normal ones Hi, I am starting this thread as I couldn't find something related to this issue. When I started playing Diablo 3 it was patch version 2.1, or something. Now I came back to play again with this latest version 2.4.1. My problem is with the ancient items (this issue I didn't notice in the version 2.1, or maybe I wasn't paying attention). Whenever an ancient item drops, it (almost) always has a higher primary stat (INT/STR/DEX), a higher VIT, but a lower legendary affix and a lower CHD/CHC rate. Now, this is not the first time I am seeing this. My latest drop was with the Depth Diggers: for the normal version I had 4xx INT+VIT+97% increase for primary skills, and for the legendary item I have 6xx INT (enchanted) + 5xx VIT + 80% increase for primary skills (I have them equiped). This is just an example. Another one would be Tal Rasha amulet: normal item 6xx INT + VIT + 96% CHD, and the ancient item dropped with 8xx INT + 7xx VIT + 53% CHD. Of course I had to reforge another one, so I am using now the normal version. I know that in the end the ancient version will reroll a higher affix (if I can enchant it, depending on the other affixes), but the legendary affix is lost forever. How stupid can this be? I am chasing these ancient items and, when they finally drop, I cannot even use them. I mean you know how it goes: CHD/CHC scale with the damage, whereas the primary affix does not. Did Blizzard intend to break these ancient items? IMO, the ancient items should be totally over the normal version, not how they dropped for me. Did you guys notice this? How do the ancient items drop for you? Regards,SilviuF8 20 Sep
