23 Aug 2011 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.Zhydaris1 23 Aug 2011

14 Sep Redesign - The Raven's Wing Dear Blizzard! I have an idea for redesign The Raven's Wing bow as the following: 4-6 ravens flies to your side. If you use the Companion - No rune - skill: Active: The ravens attacks Cyclone-Whirlwind formation* and deals each of raven 500% damage per seconds for 5 seconds. Passive: Summons 4-6 raven companions that pecks at enemies for 100% of your weapon damage as Physical. *The Cyclone-Whirlwind attack is something like in Hitchcock - Bird movie :) In this active usage there is a 2 type of attacks: If you use on screen click (no target) the ravens is find themselves a target, if there is several targets then each attacks difference one. If you use on target the ravens attack only that enemy and concentrate the target . In addition I thinking about the name redesign: Poe's Dream (after Edgar Allan Poe's raven) :) I hope you like the idea and I more hope you consider the changes. Thanks for the read.daverboczi0 14 Sep

05 Sep 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? 05 Sep

31 Aug Need to improve SM and problem with stats roll. Hello. First thing is I would like to improve my setup. Can I apply Caldesann gems on all items or I need to replace some for better? I know I should look for amulet, wrists with buff to lightings and head with impale buff. For this moment I am 90% sure that I can safely improve the hands, the shoulders and the belt. And is more options I can improve? For now GR82 solo is max what I can do. Second thing is I get primal belt and cant reroll %L to RAE. There is no possibility to choose. This is bug or what? If no, then I stay with acient belt. Same thing with Legs, I cant roll RAE instead of armor. Here is screenshots of legs and belt witch I cant roll stats for RAE. And here is link to my profile P.S. Sorry for grammar.sajner1 31 Aug

16 Aug UH set dungeon I find it hard to pull enought mobs in 1 place to multishot them. Big spiders almost dont move at all and i think they should add more small spider packs. Dont have to be 20 in each pack, maybe 3 packs whit 10 each so if you pull all you get 20+ shot.Dracula1 16 Aug

The Shadow Mantle's set is supposed to give the following for Shadow Power; Effect of all runes Lasts forever How come I have to keep activating my Shadow Power to gain the effect of runes (toughness from Gloom for example) Please explain this to me, or is this a bug? thought the Gloom would be active all the time since the Shadow Power is active all the time?Semirotta3 11 Aug

07 Aug 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!Endoria19 07 Aug

22 Jul Stucked at GR89 with S6 Hi guys, Can someone help me pls? I am stucked on GR89 with my S6 DH. I have no idea what i am doing wrong. I can easily do GR88 but if i go on GR89 it feels like i hit a wall. I can survive pretty well, but i think i am out of damage. Sometimes i can destroy packs fast, but if the packs are surrounded with trash mobs i cant deliver enough dmg and i run out of time. Here is my armory link: I dont wanna go with UE grenades, i am still working on that gear and i know that S6 is capable of doing gr100+ too.KITA1001 22 Jul
20 Jul Reduce the cooldown of Vengeance It is very frustrating the fact that I must use dawn in every single dps build for dh because vengeance is way too necessary.

14 Jul New to Grouping Hi folks, Looking for some assistance on grouping. I generally play solo. Work and RL commitments generally put me off grouping up with others in case I am called away at short notice. However I feel in the next season I would like to be part of a group more often just to push to higher Tiers. My main questions are: 1. As I currently do 80-83 solo, what kind of GRift level should I be looking for in a group? 2. Using Impale set, do I still just bounce from pack to pack and assume rest of the group make it through? Or some dynamics such as gathering mobs means I just burn stuff down? Any help for a group-noob much appreciated.Remedy2 14 Jul
12 Jul Need advice for 80+ GRIFTS Hi, Currently; I clear level G'Rift level 60 within 2 mins, level 70 within 5 mins, level 80 within 12-13 mins, but having difficulties going higher than 80 severely. What should I do? My aim is to solo a level 90 within 14 mins. Best, WaseemWaseemc2 12 Jul
11 Jul Which gear should I upgrade first? Hey, I just reached "Full build" for my UE DH here it is: (Plz ignore the childish name, i created it like in the first day Diablo came out :p but just now starting playing seriously..)

Thanks for the help!MasteRage1 11 Jul
10 Jul Hellcat Waistguard 0% drop chance? Hey there, i'm currently trying to drop this belt for the Unhallowed Grenade build but its nearly impossible to get it. I tried the Kanai's cube Upgrade rare item many many times, same with Kadala's (Guess i have spent almost 4000 BS tho) Also we are trying to drop it with my friend but it's pointless. So the question is... Is possible to get it these days at all?Mitsuru5 10 Jul
08 Jul How to break GR 94-95 with shadows DH? Hi everyone! I need some help with my impale DH. In season 10 I was able to push one 94 rift with ~1280 paragon. After season I have ~1580 rolled over paragon and I tried to push the 94. It was realy confusing because I was not even close to finish it with success. I tried ~25-30 rift, from which I finished ~5 and the best time was about 17 min. So I'm very confused now. I dont understand what's happening? Normal rifts are harder than seasonal rifts? I have more than 3m damage and good gear (only an ancient holy point shot missing with impale % stat, but I have that in normal). So I need some help: -what I have to change to be able to push 94-95? -is there any difference between seasonal and normal rifts difficulty? Thank you in advance!LadyPaka3 08 Jul
04 Jul Just hit the Wall at GR91 Just hit the Wall at GR91 Need to gather more CC and CD on a good ring, amulet and on the gloves Damn it so hard and finally Season is ending. Augmented almost all of my gear but i can't pass the 92 anymore Hayzzzz.Sandstorm1071 04 Jul

29 Jun Dying really easy (UE set) Hello there! Me and my friend are trying to push some Greater Rifts, he's a wizard. I know DH is some sort of glascannon but it feels like everything one hits me. Any mob in there can one hit me! We're usually rushing around trying to find elite packs but on the way there any mob can just one hit me and one death is wasted and the ress CD begins. If we find a elite pack there are usually alot of mobs all around the area and it's hard for me to find any place to stay at for more than 1 sec without dying, and there are so crowded that its hard to see any special attacks from the mobs. Ground effects are easy to see, but avoiding arrows/spears and other stuff when it's so crowded seems to be a problem for me. And i doesn't seem to be able to nuke down the small mobs fast enough, but elite packs seems to die really easy when convention proccs along with my wolf. I'm using UE and here is my DH: Gear is still abit under progress but its not useless i guess.. Any ideas? I saw some guys on the leaderbords with 200-300M toughness and around 2.5-3M damage, how can they have that with the same gear as i have? my toughness is around 46M and damage 2.1M. We completed Grift 69 yesterday with around 40 sec remaining, but i only helped on the elite packs since i died so much from the normal mobs (crowd) and it felt like he was doing most of the work until we reached any elite pack and that doesn't feel any good imo :( All help is appreciated! Best regards, EDIT: For some reason it shows that i have 18970200 Toughness in the armory? but in-game its only 46M? why is that?beifeldtarn13 29 Jun

19 Jun Grenades Marauder: too squishy Hi people. Look at Valdemar, my DH. I just found ancient quiver and crossbow for the Grenades build: damage is catastrophic, however, I feel very very squishy, I almost get 1 shotted at TX. Before this, I ran a Marauder build with Yang and multishot, and using the pet damage reduction item plus the 3 wolves I could tank lots of damage. What do you suggest?Romanov778 19 Jun
18 Jun Need a review Hi guys! I need a review of my UE build: I can clear with it easily a lvl 65-68 grift, and little harder - a lvl 70 one. I can't understand why most demon hunters are using SM set, because DH is a ranged class, not killing with knives! Could you give please some advice about how I could improve my build, maybe change set, because I've heard its hard to clear grifts 80 with it, and why SM is so popular now? Thank you in advance! P.s. My stats on site are quite different as in game: toughness, recovery, disc, dex are fewer than are in game. I don't know why.andreiijkh6 18 Jun

06 Jun DH non season Q Hi, I have an old DH I want to upgrade for regular play, while I rather use bows rather than the impale builds, own preference. What do I look for first? My current build isn't good, it relies on the old one I had a few years ago (with a couple of updates), well before they switched off the AH. Thanks,Benom7 06 Jun
01 Jun Impale DH - the journey (so far...) Hey guys. I would like to know what do i have to change to progress further in grifts. Ive made DH in 2 hours ... reached GR80 solo right away without any knowledge of the class but now i am stuck. Here is my DH -> Can change maybe rings and ammy but Tier is not dropping at all for me, kadala gives only worse items. So whats are the options and which GR should be doable with this gear in your opinion?Laesus14 01 Jun
