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 (http://eu.battle.net/en/community/conduct), here are some common courtesy guidelines to follow to ensure these forums remain a constructive and friendly gathering place for the community.

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.

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

17 Jun I can't complete the Vyr set dungeon Does anyone have a guide that guarantees to complete Vyr Set dungeon for mastery? I have tried various guides and I can't complete it. Once I thought I made it, but then suddenly I had to kill even more mobs. Not sure why. I am not good at understanding video guides, so anything in writing would be preferred. I think my main problem lies in kill speed between bouts of Archon, and in getting Archon to cooldown fast enough. I use Obsidian ring of the Zodiac and In-Geom (I move fast so I don't need much Teleportaion). Thank you.Rune13 17 Jun
13 Jun Archon build issue Hello I've followed the archon build from Icy Veins (still need to fix a few things) and I've noticed some odd behaviour whilst playing in GR. 1. Sometimes when I'm out of archon form but the cooldown is up, when I cast explosive blast - which is button 2, same button as slow time whilst in archon form - it will pop archon form with slow time already applied, but last for a shorter period of around 10 seconds. 2. When archon has worn off but I still have stacks (because of helmet buff) my arcane power flies right down to nothing when I start torrenting again. I can't figure out why this happens? It reverts to normal when those stacks disappear. I haven't actually found out what those stacks do to the numbers, so possibly each stack increases arcane power used, but whilst in archon form there's a high recharge and/or no AP is used on skills. Outside of archon form you don't get that buff, but you still keep the debuff (if there IS a debuff of high AP cost). Should it be like that? 3. Sometimes the archon form ray skill does hardly any damage and other times it does a lot, should it be so random?Herlie2 13 Jun
13 Jun kadala..no thanks!! its gone far enough, its not even slightly fun anylonger!! 12K blood shards and not a single set item that im looking for! gambling shoulders for the lowest shard Count.

31 May Is this Forum Dead? Reply if you see this TLDR: Actually i wanted to ask a question if any1 has any good Wiz builds for t16 speedbounties. Maybe lon frozen orb or Explosive blast build? I got both wand of woh and in geom and aether walker, but i don't have ancient triumvirate or unstable scepter and my rings/neck are crap. P.S. Seeing the reply dates on this forum is depressing tbh.Nephcyte8 31 May
30 May No Swami drop after 400pg levels I'm having a really hard time finding this item in the game. I've upgraded so many rares and spent so many blood shards and have not seen this item once in the game. I pretty much receive the same 3 wizard hats in order every time they drop or appear from Kadala or cube... It was a joke between me and my gf for about 2 weeks... now i'm on a forum asking if anyone can help me figure out why I haven't encountered this hat yet. Any ideas?Stormless3 30 May
30 May Exploit in Leaderboard build? If i look at the leaderboard, there is something strange. Currently at place 9 in 2-Players, there is a wizard https://eu.diablo3.com/de/profile/knight-22191/hero/116205633 playing Tal Rasha Star pact, and if i am not severely missing something, he has no cold spell slot? Surely, he cannot run it with only 3 Tal-Rasha stacks, so i assume there is some exploit going on allowing him to get 4 Stacks without using a cold spell? Can i report that to blizzard somehow so they can take a closer look if he really played legit? Or is there some (legal) game mechanic regarding Tal Rasha i don't know about? Edit: i don't neccessarily want to say he is cheating. Maybe there is some Error in the leaderboard, not showing the spells he used correctly. But both ingame and on the website, it looks like he did the run without a cold spell slot. Also, i hope that does not fall under naming, but i kind of have to link the entry so people see what i mean, and technically everyone can already see it.Boldar1 30 May
02 May Questions on mechanisms Tal Rasha/Firebird Hi, I am just a casual D3 player, so I am not familiar with the details of some mechanisms and hope for some advice here. I am playing a season mage (atm paragon level 245, torment VIII). I like my current build, because it is very easy and fun to play. Maybe it would not work in higher torment levels, but still I would like to understand the mechanisms fully, in order to further optimize it. I play with 5 pieces of the set Tal Rasha and 3 pieces of firebird. With the current seasonal bonus feat (need on set item less for boni) that gives me the full 3 set boni of Tal Rasha and the first 2 boni of firebird. II have no notable rings and also no notable canai cube powers for rings/amulets yet. Weapon (ancient): Gift of silaria with damage type arcane (no special ability, but best weapon I found so far). Source: Etched Sigil (While channeling Desintigrate ... cast another AP using spell every second and increase damage by 131%, automatic spell the game mechanism uses in my build is hydra) Canais Cube Powers: Envious Blade (each hit to a monster with 100% health is critical) Leorics crown and Ess of Johan (will be changed if I find something better) Skills: -Desintigrate / rune Convergence (which turns the damage into fire) - Hydra / rune Blazing Hydra (which turns the damage into fire) - Meteor / rune Molten impact (which I think to be fire damage (?) - Storm Armor /rune power of the storm (electric damage and reduced cost AP) - Frost Nova / rune Cold Snap (cold damage) - Magic Weapon / rune Force weapon (should lead to +20% damage (?) Main damage comes from Desintegrate. Tier 1 set bonus of Tal Rasha leads to a meteor of the respective element falling down every 8 seconds if I deal fire/cold/electric or arcane. To best use the Tier 2 set bonus of Firebird I need to ignite enemies by dealing three different types of fire damage. To best use Tier 2/3 boni of Tal Rasha I need to deal all four of the elements arcane/fire/cold/electric. Here are my questions: - Does the arcane damage type of my weapon count towards the four damage elements I need for Tal Rasha boni or is it being "changed" completely into fire damage when I channel desintigrate, because of the convergence rune (I have no primary skill in use). Visually it seems that I only get fire, cold (from frost nova) and electric (from storm armor) meteors, but I am not sure. - Does the Tal Rasha Tier 1 induced fire meteor which I get every 8 seconds from channeling desintegrate / convergence count towards the three different fire damage types I need to ignite the enemies as part of T 2 bonus of Firebird? - Does the damage dealt from my fire spitting hydra count towards the three different fire damage types I need for T2 set bonus of firebird?Rereina0 02 May
25 Mar 200T+ damage? So I'm playing this not really good build with explosive blast and I'm not sure how or why, but the damage indicators are extremely random, ranging from a few M to over 200T. I'm not using any burst items like convergence of elements and I am puzzled to explain the huge range of this damage and how I'm doing it with T12 gear. Any ideas? These screens were made at T13: https://scontent.flju2-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/51966239_10216668186630390_8475887988927102976_o.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_ht=scontent.flju2-1.fna&oh=58648edd58d11f13c85f38e0cb1b747c&oe=5CDC1DF0 https://scontent.flju2-2.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/52351577_10216668172910047_4824533048450088960_o.jpg?_nc_cat=105&_nc_ht=scontent.flju2-2.fna&oh=4c63d914ec895cf349861aa1292cd127&oe=5CECA008Civokenes3 25 Mar

17 Feb Tal Rasha Stacks? Hello all, This is probably some stupidity on my behalf, but I've tried searching for answers, tried incorporating them into my build, and I'm still befuddled. I've finally got my build over half way complete with the main objective being the Tal Rasha set bonus. I am using the following: -Disintegrate (Chaos Nexus)----------- ARCANE -Frost Nova (Bone Chill)---------------- ICE -Meteor (Metoer Shower)-------------- FIRE -Storm Armor (Power of the Storm)- ELECTRIC -Teleport (Wormhole)------------------- N/A -Magic Weapon (Conduit)-------------- N/A Yes, before you yell at me, I've tried manually casting Meteor, but for whatever reason, I'm still not getting 4 stacks. I use frost nova often, and the storm armor is usually proc-ing, so I'm really at a loss of understanding. I wasn't even aware of this until I attempted the Set Dungeon and could not make any progress whatsoever. Is there something I'm missing? Thanks guys!Ludacriswell2 17 Feb
09 Feb Tal Rasha Meteor 3 stacks not working well Hello! Idea is about refreshing stacks in 3 element build. For me refreshing 4 elements works fine(using 4 element build -> armory). So idea is fix some refreshing actions for Tal Rasha in 3 element builds. How looks it problem: I charge 3 elements(for some defensive offensive reasons where instead 4 element skills I use 3 elemental skills). I have to wait while stack time ends.. the only after I can do my refreshing stacks . That's the game not should be. The stacks should be good to refresh any time. Otherwice how I sad 4 elements much better works in this situation and refresh works fine. Thx!Thanux0 09 Feb
07 Feb Season 16 - How it works! Hi, This is the first time I have done a Season, a bit late I know, and I need some advice on basics. Does the Tal Rasha set fall randomly or is more guaranteed and if so how? Many thanksexcalibur3 07 Feb
06 Feb Need advice with frozen orb DMO for high grifts Hi everyone. New diablo player here, i had played it one time when the game first got out, and got back to it again this season. I build a Frozen orb build to relieve the diablo 2 glory days, and...i am stuck at GR80. https://eu.diablo3.com/en/profile/hydrael-2522/hero/116556522 There are 2 obvious cacophonies on 2 parts. Helm has a + to meteor which is useless, and i am trying to reroll that lancient helm. Similarly Boots have movement speed, which of course, i am trying to remove. Besides that, i have 10/13 ancients, and augments and 2/13. Decides adding augments on the rest, is there anything else that i am missing? on the rest of the gear? i feel like i have hit a wall for a week now. I can barely speed farm gr70 and thats about it. After i added these 2 augments, the damage increased only a pitiful 100.000, so i didn't see a significant improvement... Thank you.hydrael1 06 Feb
31 Jan Tal Rasha Set Dungeon Impossible How the can one completed Tal Rasha Set Dungeon, how the hell are you to avoid creeps that are invisible. This is absolutely restarted.

25 Jan Sanctified's LoN/WoH Speed Farm build Hey all, After a few people in game commented on this build, I figured I'd throw it together on d3planner and share so others could enjoy. Tals/WoH speed builds are a dime a dozen, and in some ways are better for farming when taking things like death breath drops into account (Sage set bonus). However, if you are simply looking to grind out keys and gear in a T13 game filled with speed monks, barbs, and Monks -- this is a handy way for wizards to keep up and literally run through the map killing everything on contact. https://www.d3planner.com/753484165 The boots allow you to walk through all enemies, and upon touching them they die. You literally just mash your explosive blast key, and drop black holes for extra dmg. No need to keep up elemental stacks or switch between spells. I've also found this incredibly useful for quick key leveling -- you can complete a GR75 in 2 minutes without optimized gear. The largest challenge beyond that is killing the RG quickly. But it turns lvling a gem from 0-65 into a 30-35 minute project. Anyway, let me know if you have ideas on how this can be optimized.sanctified1 25 Jan
23 Jan Tal Rasha Meteor GRP non Season . Hallo Leute, Es geht um folgenden Mage: https://eu.diablo3.com/en/profile/Spiritmonger-2643/hero/4582981 Das ist mein Meteor Solo Build und der läuft ziemlich gut. Ich wollte jetzt aber gern mit dem Mage auch mal in einer GRP mit gehen und da muss die Unity weg.

18 Jan Best defensive L. gem During in between seasons, I like to test and play with builds to see what I like and will aim for once season begin, this way I have a firm grasp of my spec. I am thinking a duo of defensive legendary gems, but I am unsure of which, as is I can easily get them to rank 60. I am wondering , Moratorium avoids taking all damage at one time and have a chance of clearing remaining damage. What if it doesn't clear, what if I also use Molten Wildebeest’s Gizzard which regenerate life er second. At rank 60 Moratorium stagger dammage for 9 seconds, which should be enough to clear the enemy and Molten Wildebeest’s Gizzard regenerate 70,000 health per second. With this combo wouldn't it clear all damage? or plenty of it if pushing?Zecke1 18 Jan

20 Nov Tal's (meteor) vs Firebird (starpact) in solo / duo Hey all, I've been playing as a "casual" wizard this season since it's my goto class and I need some help: I've had most succes with Tal's meteor build so far, reaching 101 solo and 97 in duo. Although I realise I've not found critical primals yet and my Paragon is only around 1k, I've got plenty of ancients and got most pieces augmented. Still, I'm currently starting to feel like the damage of this spec is lacking! Defensively I'm doing alright even beyond 102 on solo using just Nemesis instead of Bloodbracers! On 3's (with monk/necro) I've tried to switch from Tal's meteor build to Starpact Firebird and saw that this worked very well in upping my damage, allowing us to push to 104. However, everytime I try to do this in solo or duo (with monk), I keep dying to random damage even in low 90's. The spec does nuke as hell when it survives the rotation to do so, but without unity and too much random damage it just seems to go splat most of the time. I've tried igniting elites and dragging them along, but without succes. Even with the 20 stacks from firebird, I'm still dying to relatively little incoming hits. Without dragging elites, it seems that it's hard to run around even with 10+ stacks from trash. I'm already running an esoteric gem for extra defense, tried running ancient parthan's together with teleport (stun rune or defensive rune), Halo of Arlyse with frost armor vs Halo of Karini with storm armor. Nothing seems to allow me to take the incoming damage and do the rotation properly when I need to. Am I overlooking something obvious on firebird that prevents me to push into 100's in solo / duo? How do you herd up groups while taking damage before you nuke them and what are your movement patterns like. Do you stay for big none-elite packs or move along and just fight multiple elites together. Do you drag burning elites along with you to the next pack? Or is all this supposedly fixed by gaining more paragons over time, because as a casual player I'm not going to grind 2k paragon. Any help would be greatly appreciated! KazKazheem1 20 Nov

03 Nov Halo of Arlyse Hi, I've spent the last week trying to farm a ring Halo of Arlyse. The ring just doesn't drop. I don't even bother counting the number of materials used with Kadala and in the cube on trying to get it. Does this ring still exist in the game or was it removed? The only requirement for it to drop that I found is to be level 59 or above so I got that ticked but still no drops.DubbieDoo1 03 Nov

06 Oct Arcane Torrent Channeling Aim Bug Hi ! I am playing Wiz and my only active skill is Arcane Torrent with Disruption rune. So I use it, well, a lot :p Since RoS, it is bugged. At least for me. What's happening : When I click on a monster, it's okay, the spot on the ground is at the monster. But sometimes (I'd say... 25% the time), when channeling, if I move to another target (still channeling, without clicking again), the spot moves around my character toward the new target but its distance to my character is bugged. Ok, to resume, if I attack a monster say on the left of my char at 20m, and while channeling, switching to another on the right at 10m, the Arcane Torrent spot can sometimes be on the right but at 20m. By sometimes I mean enough for it to be a real pain in the !@# :D It's the only aiming problem I have with any char I have. Does it happens to anyone else ? PS : Oh, and also, but this happens since D3 launch, when your are in the caves of Act 2 (where you do the Zoltan Kulle quest), most of the times, Arcane Torrent cannot cross the holes in the ground, and there are many holes there ^^ And this is not linked to channeling : If I'm on one side and click on the ground on the other side, Arcane Torrent will stop at my side's border of the hole :x It's weird it was never patched...Semag16 06 Oct
12 Sep Wizzard player returning Well I took a long earned break from the hacking and slashing from D3 and I thought Ill give seasons a shot. However. After looking at some of the rift build, I just had one thought: "How on earth did these guys make it this far. Yes their gear and paragon levels are high. But the abilities and synchronization of gear and abilities does not fit. So. I like to just delete things. (See my old character that I like to use) https://eu.diablo3.com/en/profile/Dreamdt-2367/hero/110930445 But I need to get into rifts again with higher dificulties and does not know if the deleting stunning idea still works.Dreamdt0 12 Sep

10 Sep Disintegrate + Meteor Shower? Hi, I somehow managed for a while to use Disintegrate with Meteor Shower together, so when I was casting Disintegrate it casted Meteor Showers in the target location aswell. But now, after I equipped my new Firedbird set, it doesn't do that anymore and so I lost so much damage, I bassically deal no damage in Torment V anymore. What did I do wrong? How can I make them go together again? Thanks.CrankyPants3 10 Sep

03 Sep All-Lightning DMO setup I'm experimenting with it, trying to push as far as I can go with just lightning skills plus the usual DMO Arcane orb/ slowtime setup. So far I've managed to solo successfully up to GR 69, but 70 is giving me trouble (mostly shielding elites keep popping up). On 70, my progress usually winds up a minute behind the time limit. I accidently reforged my best set helm for DMO and it set me back on DPS/damage mitigation, but those were made up for with ancient versions of other items( problem with those is I lost my sockets for my jewelry). I have 3 set pieces I cant seem to find or roll an ancient version of: Helm, glove, and boots. Does DMO simply not have an ancient variant for these 3 items or am I unlucky? Anyways, While 70 is reachable with an all lightning DMO build like mine, and POSSIBLY beatable with the right gear and stats, l feel any higher than 70 with this build would be pure luck.SneepSnonk1 03 Sep
27 Aug Star Pact Build Hi Im looking for help with my Star Pact build, since I seem to struggle a whole lot with the build to do consistent damage. I go full Area % Damage in the build in all the places I can, and go with max arcane power. Im waiting for my CoE Ring for Arcane, 5 arcane dymo stacks, and Attunement stacks as high as we can go. Make the Meteor fly, quickly getting AP to channel again before the Metoer hits. inorder to get max from deathwish But the dmg is all over the place, sometimes it litterly deletes the entire screen and I feel like a god. secondly I struggly to even clear out a few mops (even tho they are in a group). I feel like I have gotten a good rutine in the rotation of the build and feels like I do it right considently, but my dmg does not reflect this. Anyone having any experience how to get better consistent dmg from this spec? Forgotten to mention I try to push 2 man with a Support Monk.EPO1 27 Aug

21 Jul Star Pact + Necro - Full crit? Hello fellow Wizards, I just have a simple question. Does Necro's CD Land of the dead give me full crit chance when I use star pact in a meta group (or any group for that matter)? Or is there another spell at Necro that could do it? Thank you for your humble answers :)Malito4 21 Jul
19 Jul Archon Disintegrate not working? I've been using the Manald Heal Archon build from icyveins and half the time the disintegrate doesn't even seem to do damage. Sometimes I attack and there's a flurry of numbers and the health of enemies (from whites to bosses) just melts, but other times I can't even see damage numbers popping up. Anyone else got this problem? Or am I just doing something wrong?REDZero4 19 Jul
06 Jul Single target build for 4-man Hello, Trying with friends to get higher in 4-man GR in seasonal. Been playing the starpact build, it works realy nice but the second dps is a crusader with condemn build. Crusader does not seem to have a single target build at all. So once we reach the GR boss we dont have an effective way of killing him. I understand necro is best for that but we dont always play the "meta". I tried Wizard lighting archon build with manald heal during a farm run but nothing happened. I placed double hydra (lighting) but i saw no dps at all. No idea what i did wrong or if that build is still viable. Perhaps any other build that is viable to deal single target damage? I appreciate any suggestions. We are doing seasonal gr +/- 105Blessox1 06 Jul
27 Jun Question about Magic Weapon - Ignite Rune Ignite Rune states: Attacks have a chance to burn enemies, dealing 300% weapon damage as Fire over 3 seconds. I'd love to know how much chance there is per attack. I've searched the interwebs and this forum for the answer but didn't find. Maybe i just missed it. Can anybody tell me the exact chance for this rune to proc?Exxo6 27 Jun
27 Jun TX<6 with DMO? Folks, looking for a piece of advice. I'm running arcane orb DMO, done GR70 recently but stuck at TX rift <6 min achie. I tried meteor FB, but any channeling make things even slower. Is there any faster variation for DMO build or should I just opt to something else? Tal Rasha maybe?pooteen5 27 Jun

21 Jun 2018 Ashnagarr's blood bracers https://eu.battle.net/d3/en/item/ashnagarrs-blood-bracer-P4_Unique_Bracer_004 So what abilities/items do these actually work for? Obviously the galvanized ward passive works with them, but I had been running molten wildebeest gizzard in one of my socketed jewelry pieces until last night when I looked at my shield numbers and it wasnt adding up. Apparently the shield granted by gizzard (200% of your life per second) does not benefit from the bracer bonus. I had around 50k life per second and was only getting a 100k shield from the gizzard instead of the near 200k it should have been if effected by the bracers. Trying to see what else I can do to improve my talrasha build survivability, what other shields stack here?Lynx3 21 Jun 2018
21 Jun 2018 Wizard speedfarm Alternative Hi, i have played mainly 2 different builds this season - DMO Frozen orb for GR solo/2 man pushing, and a 4Vyrrasha Archon build with manald heal for speadfarming. And while it generally rushes through everything, i need to constantly stop to pickup gold (using Boon of the Hoarder). Sadly, i cannot swap an avarice Band in, as all 3 rings are fixed. So i am looking for another quick speedfarm build. I feel like Firebird would suck at rushing through, and dislike the inability to kill single mobs with it, and DMO sucks for speedfarming because of the need to set down Bubbles. I tried LoN with Arcane orbit and unstable Scepter, but it sucked on DMG. So i guess its only Talrasha left, or a true 6pc Vyr build (I really like the archon mobility). Has anyone a good Speedfarm setup for farming t13 rifts and split-bounties for gold? Bonus points if it can fit Sages set in without loosing killspeed.Boldar5 21 Jun 2018
