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.

4d Where do I go from here? Hi folks, I'm running UE Multishot, here is my profile: Right now I'm kinda stuck when it comes to upgrades. I'm trying to roll a perfect ancient Traveler's pledge since I really like that combo and the potential +300 dex would be a nice boost, but it's really hard to get it rolled juuuuust right. Other than that I'm just upgrading gems right now. Is the hellfire amulet really the better alternative here? Are there items , skills, passives or other significant thing I'm missing? Trying to push GR's and feeling the glass ceiling right now... Thanks :)Ratatatata9 4d
16 Feb A great stone of jordan for yangs build. I would guess just by what i know not all % modfiers works the same but. one stone would net like 12 dicipline for a total of 1200% dmg, both to vengeance and multi. But does it really work that way? like dexterity a 1000 increase in dex doesnt seem to add even add 100% more dmg or am i just blind or smth? wouldnt it trash focus/restraint? i know that is a flat 100% increas in total dmg, so if something crit 100 bil it would crit 200 bil, like the elemental afixes. so im just guessing it dont really work that way. and i had full trust in ppl running this as they are the ones doing the good runs with yangs! so i cant believe they miss out in it just want some simple explain really. and to top it of, what does 1000% increase in dmg from 1000 dex actually adds, i cant see it actually adding that judging by the numer i would see with 2x augments worth of it. i know the setbonus from karlei that 1200% melee dmg seem to add it the same way elemental afixes add things up.Bugdrops5 16 Feb
05 Feb S12 Unhallowed Essence advice for pushing past plateau Hi all This is my first real season, and this is my current profile: I wondered if anyone could give me some advice on what I should do to continue progressing at this stage? I have about 1.2 million sheet DPS, which feels low to me. I've reached solo GR 75, but am struggling to go further. I wonder what you think I might be able to do to continue progressing? I would like to push up to GR 100 this season, but seem to have hit a wall. My current game plan is to try to make my gear ancient. I'm working on getting an ancient Yang's and Quiver, but RNG has not been on my side so far and, despite lots of attempts to reforge my Yang's, I haven't gotten an ancient yet. Similarly, countless Kadala quivers haven't yet led to an ancient Dead Man's Legacy. Cheers for any help you can give NB I have an ancient Hellfire Amulet, which is currently unequipped, with the Ballistics rune - I forgot to reset to include Ballistics as a runeMrBaby4 05 Feb
03 Feb How can I get my gear better? Hey, I was playing Diablo for just a while now and I love playing DH, I've got only like 120 hours on DH's so far, but my main DH is not bad, but I wonder how could I get it to clear higher grifts and stuff like that. I can clear gr70 with a bit of a struggle. This is my DH so far. Any tips how to make my gear better, or any ideas what I could do to be able to play on higher grifts?Burdas2 03 Feb
30 Jan Impossible to find groups? Is it just me, or is it impossible to find groups if you're not a necro with 5mil sheet damage? No room at all for DH's, not if you're looking to do 95+ atleast. Finding people/groups that are willing to take a multishot dh is kinda impossible. How are you guys solving this?Hedz2 30 Jan

22 Jan Yang's Recurve stat replacing Hello guys, so today i got a pretty good Ancient Yang's Recurve to replace my crappy old one, but I can't decide which stat to replace. Here are the stats. DPS: 3254 +1526-1865 damage 7% bonus damage +980 Dexterity Chance to deal 18% area damage on hit Reduces all resource cost by 40% Secondary: +11 max discipline 172% increased Multishot damage I was thinking i have to try to get fire damage instead of normal damage(first stat), but then I saw on few posts that it doesnt to that much diference and that damage % increase is much better stat. What should i do ? Thank you.Pulssqt1 22 Jan
17 Jan Zei + Sentry mechanics I was planning to do the N6M4 build (, but have a question regarding the sync between Zei and the dmg being mostly from Sentries. Does the arrow fired from a sentry get the multiplier based on the distance it travels before hitting, or based on how far my actual character is from the enemy?  EX: I place 5 sentries in a line. 1st on top of the enemy, 2nd 10 yards away and so on, I am standing as the last one 50 yards from the enemy. If I shoot, do all the sentries shoot for the max Zei dmg (50 yards bonus as that's the distance I am on) or does it differ resulting in no Zei bonus for the one on top of the enemy and the bonus slowly rising for every sentry further away (and no Sentry getting the max one, only me as a character)?Seredith1 17 Jan

12 Jan DH NAT Strafe suggestions? Any Suggestions, Other than better equip drops??: Natalya Strafe Build My seasonal DH, Lusha GR61 has been my top solo. Rerolled stats from Mystic were best choices at the time and I was focused on completing NAT set Dungeon. Jewelry Cubed = 1 less set pc req doesn't show on page. I have switched between Hexing Pants & Aquilia. I'm not familiar with all the Abbreviations used in forums, so bear with me.Gandalaug3 12 Jan

05 Jan Back to the game after 3+ years Back to the game after 3+ years Many new things (Kai’s Cube, new difficulty levels,…). I have a few questions: 1.- I’m spending my old Rift keys, but no new drops. How do I get them now??? 2.- What farming difficulty level do you recommend? I play now level 9 with easy and level 55 Rifts. Is it worth to increase level for farming? 3.- I feel kind of glass cannon now. Easy killing, but a bit weak. I would really appreciate if a seasoned player, good willing soul, can inspect my profile ( Atenea, Demon Hunter) and give some suggestions, mostly on the “passives” from the Cube.Manelus5 05 Jan

09 Dec thought about Impale rune Hi everyone. Since a long time now, i've been searching for a good Quiver to replace my non-ancient one who miss some stats. Two days ago, i've pulled a Primal one! ... But he has two bonus I wanna change: Rain of vengeance increased damages, and fire elemental damage. So, i'm kinda disappointed, since it look's like he is unusable for solo push. I can either replace fire by lightning or Rain of vengeance by Impale, but i'm stuck with one useless bonus. I know there is a Group version of the build which use the Fire rune on Impale, to make the Bane of The Striken stack faster. So my question is: With some tweaks on the build, would it ever be viable to use my primal Quiever for solo push, by switching all my elemental bonus stats to fire, and of course my Impale rune to the fire one?Darkduprey1 09 Dec
09 Dec Shadow Impale question Hi there, it's my first post here, I decided to look for help before I get suicidal ;-) I'm not very familiar with RPG and Diablo is the only game I've played... I thought I was pretty skilled ;-) before I wanted to try to play in Season. Long story short - I'm paragon 595 now, I got the Champion reward but Destroyer seems absolutely impossible... I have Shadow Impale build, I'm good with this under T10 but T10, T11... I die all the time, and if I don't have a melee weapon, I my shots don't even do anything. Impale should add 50,000% damage, right? My dexterity is 10K, damage 560K, 50,000% of my great ancient cross bow should mean something, right? Do I really need 1,200 * 50,000 by using a melee? I can't even dream about GR60. I don't even know how much I can tweak things... wait and do 500 more paragons to gain 2500 dex? But I saw people with less paragon running through rifts, smashing everything, while I needed to shoot a monster for half an hour before killing him... Can someone point me in the right direction? What should I do, where/how should I learn? Thanks!! My link... 09 Dec
07 Dec UH set dungeon Me and many others find it too hard to shoot 20 spiders 6 times. I allways hit too few or too many what also ruins mastery. Max i have ever done was 5/6. I think Blizzard should rework this dungeon and Wizard's Firebird seems also nearly impossible to master!Dracula4 07 Dec
06 Dec New to D3 Multiplayer - Trying to build a good DH Hi, I'm new to the multiplayer experience of Diablo 3. All I really did was finish the campaign. Now, I'm trying to get started on multiplayer. I'm a DH player. Also, I don't want to be the kind of player with such good gear that I'll be able to clear super high greater rifts. I just need some advice on where/how to get decent gear so I can get started on grinding my paragon level and at least be able to clear Nephalem Rifts on Torment V and above. What are the most efficient ways of grinding set items and legendary items? If I'm looking for specific items for a specific build, what should I do? I would appreciate any clear advice on how to get started and how to start finding better gear. Thank you.cloud3 06 Dec
04 Dec Primal ancient weebs still cant figure out why some ppl are nearly half with primal items so early.. not much over 1k paragon. consider my non seasonal is 900 and this one seasonal is 900 now... i didnt even get more then 10 total i think +- and i use in grand total 1 of them, only 1 item that i can use (set) all the other stuff is just salvage fodder anyway, set bonus render just about all other items useless lol. i guess problem is when i get a primal ancient pus spitter ppl roll a perfect karlei or other things. even my 2 primal rings are worse stat wise then my non ancient rings hah, while i could use one of the rings, it's not ideal anyway lol. and the fact a primal roll can suck aswell. do think this char to 900 net me quite a few more primals then my other DH. i guess i was way ahead this time in ranks because of fast set and more exp.Bugdrops0 04 Dec

04 Dec Need some answers/advices Hi, being a new player to D3 i'm kinda lost to where should i farm for better gear, should i run GR or craft new gear ? And to farm Paragon levels, which activity should i run ? bounty xp is too low so Adventure, Higher campaign or Rifts ? this is my gear atm Just finished torment 1 with no deaths or problem but i'm kinda stuck without knowing where or what should i focus now. Any tips or lead would be much appreciatedH0enir1 04 Dec
02 Dec [S12] Build question to push high tiers Hello fellow DHers, Currently playing a Natalya/Marauder build, so basically : Rain of Vengeance > Sentry > Cluster arrow (for multiple arrows). My 1st question is: Are the sentries affected by Rain of Vengeance ? That is: Do the sentries also deal 3500% more damage if they're dropped after Rain of Vengeance, or it doesn't matter ? Kinda same question for Oculus ring: Does dropping the sentry in the yellow area boost the sentry damage ? My 2nd question is: Natalya/Marauder <OR> Unhallowed with Yang's recurve? Looks like Unhallowed can reach higher DPS, but what about survivability ? Marauder with Zoey's secret provides constant DR, and good decoys with all the companions.Spip1 02 Dec
01 Dec Speed farming build Not sure what the problem is, but I have been looking at various builds. On the builds I would like to use, Multishot is a rmb choice, I can only get it as a skill option not a secondary. Other builds show preparation,vaulr and companion as skill choices, they all come under the same skill tree for me, so I can only pick one of them. Is this a glitch in my set up? Is there a way to choose all 3 as other people seem to do? Is there any way of getting the build I have been looking at? 01 Dec
01 Dec best choice on a shadow build...which is better - ricochet with lighting dmg or - overpenetration with cold dmg I'll see that many are using the second choice, why?rechinica3 01 Dec
30 Nov Please help a new player out So I have been playing with friends and the experience thus far in the game has been awesome. I looked up a few builds online and started gathering the pieces I require (aside from an elusive ring, for now I still need to get the right chest piece). So aside from the chest and the cube ring I have what I can see got all of the pieces that I require, but I am still having trouble with T13 nephalem rifts. How do I increase my stats from here on out? I know that I have to roll the correct stats (looking for a suitable compass rose) and I have to get ancient items to replace the legendary and set items I have. Any guidelines, tips or tricks that would help me improve my damage output? I have no idea how to progress past what I have now. (the ring of grandeur in my cube gives me the full 6 set bonus currently). For reference here is the character I am working on: Thank you!NinjaClicks2 30 Nov

28 Nov UE Amulet stat priority Hey guys, I have this amulet with socket crit dmg and dex. 4th stat is rerolled. Atm I use crit chance but I thought about changing it to %fire dmg.The tool tip says if I remove crit I have a dps loss of about 10-15%. That would mean 20% fire damage is better than crit chance since tool tip doesn't consider %element dmg. But when I simulate my dps with d3planner I get more than 10% damage increase using crit chance, which would mean crit chance is much more valuable. I'm confused, can some please help me out?green4 28 Nov
28 Nov DH Marauder and Zei's Stone HELP Hello all, I am curently using the legendary gem " Zei's Stone of Vengeance " on my full marauder build but i am not sure about the way i works.

Which distance is used for the damage boost calculation : The distance between my DH and the boss or the distance between the boss and the sentry that is closest to him ? TIAJWar5 28 Nov
27 Nov Ancient yangs vs regular yang stats Actual question cus derp post: Ancient with 16.3% sheet dps increase with lower multishot multiplier or go with the one I have now (armory and there it is), thnx Hi, so ive gotten a ancient Yangs with 3.3k dmg, 165% (ish) multishot multiplier and I cant recall all the stats cus im not at diablo at this moment. But i use the non-ancient now (armory) and Idk if its worth to lose like 30-40 (?)% on the multishot multiplier. Ill post a screenshot (or just stats) of the ancient later. But overall (with a green gem) its a 16.3% dps increase (sheet dps in any case) so im wondering is it worth? Also I have 11 disc on non and 10 on ancient. 7%atkspeed on both. Messy post, ill fix that later too.Echoes1 27 Nov

04 Nov Nephalem Rifts - Normal vs. Torment1 I would like to start this topic with a simple statement: I am not here to whine, I am simply here to discuss my findings while doing nephalem rifts. Torment1 and above are supposed to give a high bonus to the chance to receive legendary item drops. But ultimately, I cannot say that the game feels that way. Doing 5 rifts on T1 gives me an average of 2 legendary items in total. Doing 5 rifts on normal... the game rains a !@#$ storm of legendaries. EVERYWHERE! I get them from chests, boxes, corpses, elite packs ... literally everywhere. As soon as I leave torment1 and switch to normal difficulty I get flooded. (These items are crap most of the time... and no set items ever) I would like to know if other players made the same experience, and ask Blizzard to investigate the issue, if some nerd IT Intern mixed up the difficulty levels ad on accident added the huge bonus to normal instead of torment. Because that is what the game feels like right now. [EDIT]I was completly sure to be in the general section of the forum... sorry about that. Please move to the appropriate area. Thanks!Endoria20 04 Nov
03 Nov Danetta / Nats t13 question So the old danettas/nats/Pain Enhancer build is pretty fast on t10. But it doesn't do enough damage for t13. I used a lvl 80 gem btw. Now, I don't have the paragons or augments to test it at a higher dex level. Could it be an efficient build with augments and paragons? If so, how much dex are we talking?Dominus0 03 Nov
02 Nov Starting again... Hi, After a years ago, after the big sentry build neft I uninstalled the game, but now, I started playing again. A few questions: 1. Are there still viable builds with the current gear I have? M6, but with RRoG and Etrayu. 2. I wanna go for the multishot build in the long term. So I have to gear up towards UE6, and Yang's Recurve. Where do I find YR? Does it drop, or do I have to craft one? 3. From when does multishot become viable? How many set items, does it work with another bow, ... I played a bit yesterday, I can easily play rift GR50 with my current sentry gear and build. 4. Any other tips, tricks, ...? Thanks in advance! Cheers, Thomasthomas4 02 Nov
