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

23h Multishot build question. Just a small one: Bane of the Powerful and Bane of the Stricken, which gem is better in what situation?Tassadar2 23h
4d 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!Dracula3 4d
4d Rate the DH above you That time again. Rate the DH, tips for upgrades etc. 4d
4d 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.Echoes0 4d
6d Restraint reroll UE MS Just got a ancient Restraint ring with the following stats: 608 dex 6% cc 8% cdr socket Not sure if its worth keeping cdr or just sticking with dex. Could i perhaps roll something else on quiver instead of cdr?Morran1 6d
17 Nov Cluster Bombs, 4 vs 5 bounce Does anyone have a clue how much less dmg a belt with 4 bounces will be compared to one with 5 bounces? 4 bounces will get quicker to the final big explosion, so maybe its not so much worse? I am having a hard time finding a good belt, and one with 4 just dropped.Hai4 17 Nov
13 Nov 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? 13 Nov
08 Nov Buffed MS Buffed UH Multishot does some crazy dps now. Before i was doing gr70, now i am close to 90. T13 rifts are so dam fast and in gr70 anything just melts. As noob as i am, i am glad to of doing gr88 now and 90 is just behind the coner now and i am just under p700.Dracula0 08 Nov
07 Nov Antichi e Primordiali Salve a tutti! Gioco a diablo da (relativamente) poco e non ho ancora chiare alcune cose sugli oggetti antichi e primordiali; E' possibile ottenere uno di questi riforgiando un oggetto? e se non fosse così, dalla kabala sono droppabili? Chiedo scusa se questo tipo di domande saranno state chieste migliaia di volte ma in ogni caso, grazie del vostro tempo! :DJulya1 07 Nov
07 Nov Templar gear What's the best gear to give your templar for MS DH build? Skills all defensive, and the 'your templar cannot die' relic, I suppose? But which sword, shield and jewelery? Do leg gems affect templar jewelery?thomas1 07 Nov
04 Nov Granades or MS? So whitch DH build is better for pushing UH granades or MS?Dracula2 04 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

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

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

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. Reducing the cooldown of vengeance will open for us possibilities to create some new and competitive builds. what do you guys think about it?kromista7 20 Jul
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
