11 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 (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. 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, Battle.net 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.Vaneras1 11 May 2012
4h Dumb ways to die (that you know of) Share the silly ways to die that you know. I'll start: - Accidentally clicking on other player banner when in town. When you click it, it teleports you right away without any confirmation or consent required. It is almost sure way to die if that player is in combat and melee while you are ranged. - Wearing Unity ring (that ring that creates health link between users) while playing with randoms. It is almost certain that some undergeared Monk or something will also have the random Unity ring and as soon as he step into melee combat or on some ground hazard (arcane lasers etc) you will be getting massive damage spike that will end you. - Attacking with very fast skill from melee range at an enemy that spawns electric shock when hit while not being too lightning resistant. - Fighting Malthael or that Keywarden from act 1. Those two are very dangerous imho because of the attacks that you have to actively dodge. - Standing still after killing rift boss. Some of them leave behind mortars that can attack you long after the boss is dead and you are upgreading your gems. - Wearing that braces that spawn elite pack when taking shrine. They spawn right on top of you when you do so. If you are not prepared to move right after you do so they will inflict massive damage upon you.LuckyTiger17 4h
4h How many deaths? Why? I managed to not die yet as WD. Played around 800 para levels last season mainly as WD, got to grift 74 now I am at 73. Death is lurking round the corner.. :)Nackskott3 4h
2d died at 69 due to random disconect i died at lvl 69 hc season due to random disconnect , wtf my internet was working perfectly , checked ping / sites everything , i'm done with d3 . wtfSoulScar6 2d
2d Immortal monster bug still exist? the last map of a rift i just finished was the jail map and the elites were the little pudgie humanoids with daggers...not sure exactly what triggered it, but after killing off his minions and killing the boss, his health bar disappeared and would not die. so he was my unkillable and very annoying companion for the remainder of the map lol thinking about it, i had just hit a weapon rack for the herrington dmg bonus, got my frenzy stacks up and psn nova from monarch scepter insta-roasted them. so not sure if overkill(more dmg than needed, not the skill) caused this(maybe that death wasn't registered in some way?) or a combination of items. anyone else with similar encounters? I remember adria having this bug, but never heard of elites or monsters becoming immortal.Dieftw17 2d

5d Question about Unity Dear Forums, This is like one of my first times where I take hardcore serious and I am currently calling the veterans to help me with an issue I am trying to figure out. I have just managed to get 2 Unity rings and I use Hilbrand's Training Sword relic instead of Enchanting Favor during farming and I noticed my Spirit Vessel procced when my follower got hit by like 6 molten explosions. I am assuming that because I didn't have Enchanting Favor the damage could exceed my follower's HP as my follower only had 500k and I had 850k and it just procced it when I was full HP (Would love some clarification on this). How would this interaction be with Enchanting Favor? Would I have just taken 550k in the same situation? (Assuming my follower takes 1.1m damage from the molten explosions). I am kind of scared now to use Unity because this could also create situations where I would die when I have already procced Spirit Vessel. Would love hear from a veteran or someone who has theorycrafted alot with a detailed answer regarding my question. Thank you for listening.EliteAnu2 5d
10 Feb LFG hellfire amulets Hello everyone, I'm looking for 3 people mentally ready for a big session of farming of hellfire amulets in HC. I would like to farm only one time those amulets. That's why I'm looking for 3 people each having 30 sets of infernal machine. At the end it does 120 sets so around 300 amulets which will be enough i hope. I'm ready for this afternoon or tomorrow.

04 Feb Stuck on a floor grate and died So this is a bug that is relay annoying ...since you do not expect to die and loose all because of something like this. I was doing a solo gr 50...easy enough...on a map like The Keep Depths , and i got stuck in a floor grate. I was playing a barb with leap and bolder toss ...none of this abilities ware working. There was only one more mob left that was in range...and he keept hiting me...verry little...but more than i could have healed...and i couldn't kill him with anything..since he was to far...so he killed me little by little. I want my char restored...this is just a stupid bug. You should not let a game go on hard core wich such bugs.adriancc2 04 Feb

14 Jan Which class and build for speed farming? /w friends. Hi guys, I created firebird Wizz Seasonal / HC, currently am playing with a WD soul harvest build friend, he easly goes around dealing 200mil+ dmg with his seasonal set, although he needs more toughness. While I am tanky enough to grind GR~35 my dmg isn't allowing me, the only way I can do anything is by gathering loads of groups and go arcon which has 2mins cooldown. I feel like this build is really annoying imo. Can you guys recommend me something with a little bit different gameplay? Any class any build.ptK0 14 Jan

11 Jan Iron Man Hey guys, Just a post to gauge if there would be anybody out there interested in starting Iron Man characters. I used to play Iron Man on D1 and 2 and it was a hell of a lot of fun, particularly on D1 for obvious reasons. I've not tried it as yet on D3, but of late I've felt that, Greater Rift pushing aside, the game is stupidly easy in all respects. I've tried to roll a fresh level 1 and start a totally self found play through straight from Torment 1 on Hardcore, this does give the game an edge, but overall it still isn't enough. Generally speaking, things are straight forward despite the odd spike or two, depending on luck and circumstance. I feel it needs more, and so I searched online for possible rule sets and came up with very little that encouraged. Overall, the rule sets suggested are a bit soft and don't offer much in the way of sadomasochistic edge. Playing D3 in normal HC or (god forbid) SC is great, but it lacks urgency, depravity, grit and battle essence. What I mean by this is, the fights aren't so much fights, as walkovers. Monsters are just pasted and you simply march on with your infinite resources and potion onto the next hapless set of 'demons'. I miss the days where a battle was a battle. Where each moment mattered, each decision imperative, when each victory, no matter how small was so, so sweet. I wanted to attempt to bring a bit of that feeling into the game play of a Diablo game, and I thought Iron Man may be the only way. I'm going to be very simplistic and blunt with the rule set, there is no need to convolute. Rules: 1) Fresh HC character (any class) 2) No access to stash whatsoever at ANY point (Your inventory is your only means of carrying items). 3) No access whatsoever to any vendors/artisans/healers at any point and for any reason. 4) Game is started on Torment 1. Campaign mode is used. Play through all difficulties until death. 5) No area can be repeated, can only ever press forward through the quests. 6) Town can only be accessed when the quest line demands it. Nothing else may be done whilst there, the only exception being to 'pause' the game when required. 7) Any skills/runes may be used, items can be traded only between players in the Iron Man team. 8) Give it your best shot and just have fun! One of the most attractive mechanics which is brought back into the fold playing this way, is item durability. It will now matter greatly as nothing can ever be repaired (Spaulders of Zakara anyone!?) and so a lot of strategy and decision making must go into where and when particular items are used, and for how long. All said, if anyone is interested just give me a shout on this thread or add me and PM in game, Lore#2563, and I'd be glad to discuss further or answer any questions on the rules or even tweak anything pending problems I have not foreseen etc. Peace guys.

10 Jan Tempted to play Hardcore My face when playing Softcore: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fJIjoE27F-Q Game is Greater Rift on Torment 3 there is three normal players and one paragon 1675 who opens Greater Rift 60 ... Or Torment 3, normal Rift with two undergeared players and one guy who should be playing Torment 10, but plays Torment 3 and "skip all whites and fights only elites" while those two undergeared guys follow him dying to the all white monsters when try try to follow the "skipper"... My guess is such things do not happen on HC, right? Now I know that Hardcore players aren't angels either, Hardcore has its issues too, for example most Hardcore players play only with their "friends" or guild members and if it is open public game where there is 2 or 3 guildies they can abuse vote kick feature (happened to me in previous season).LuckyTiger7 10 Jan
09 Jan Classless Gem of Ease setup Hi I'm looking for suggestions on BiS non-class restricted items to use Gem of Ease in, for ease of levelling Alts to 70. Yes, I know it's unnecessary because 1 gem in a weapon will get you most the way there, but I'm going to do it anyway because those last 10-15 levels annoy me. I'm assuming the ideal for kill speed would be LoN + a bunch of ancients, and as non-class items won't boost a specific skill I'd want items with procs instead, but that's probably too much power, and you'd lose out on exp boosters like Leoric's ring. Any suggestions (other than 'don't bother') welcomed.Barold3 09 Jan

28 Dec The good advise thread for people new to hardcore. Hi folks. I was thinking that we should have a thread with good advise for those people playing softcore but are considering to start hardcore. Me beeing far from any hardcore ace have nevertheless learned a thing or two about playing hardcore. So I was thinking we could start a thread to help those new hardcore players. I'll start with this advise, pretty obvious but still good advise I think. Advise: Do not play on a higher difficulty level that you can easily handle. Why? Often people raise the difficulty level to get that higher exp and learn painfully that it was a bit too hard. Sensmorale of this advise: Leveling a bit slower is a lot better than dying faster.Wolfwiyn2 28 Dec

19 Dec Virgin -London extreme slow internet warning This only concerns players from the UK and who are with Virgin (fibre). But if you are, do be careful when playing in peaktime hours starting from the afternoon and evening. Specifically people from London (South and West London apparently). As currently there is an issue that's already been ongoing for months, where there service is oversaturated and overselled to the point they now have consistent issues with 100 to 150Mb lines reduced to 1Mb-4Mb consistently. And apparently Virgin knows and it will go on all the way till undefined date in 2017. Just a word of caution. (I'm actually doing broadband tests every evening as the service Virgin currently supplies is way below the 40% mark which is the legit mark, I have a 100Mb line wich consistently registers at 7Mb and below and will complain as we are paying for a service that is poorly or not at all delivered.) In any event be careful and don't lose your hardcore char to it!Mfatal0 19 Dec
16 Dec Is it possible to restore my hc character? edit: im permanently quitting any blizzard game as of this moment. 10 mins ago while running gr 60 on my barb i was suddenyl disconnect. i didnt lose connection to battle.net service just diablo 3. I logged back in to find my character dead. What a waste of time i just went through. Im in utter shock because im hardwired to my modem. I pay for 10up and 50 down so i get solid connections specifically because i play hardcore. NEVER had this happen before in all 8 seasons. My girlfriend continued playing uninterrupted while she watched me freak out. Sad to say i really have to ask for my hardcore character to be restored because i fear i wont play anymore if this is the ultimate end goal for my efforts on battle.net. Blue post plz. EDIT: ah never mind. blizzard doesnt care if their servers are poorly supported and in the end all because they cant prove anything means they wont do anything about it. READ ALL THE DAM POSTS ABOUT PEOPLE LOSING ENTIRE GAMES OF CHARACTERS TO DC's DURING HIGH GR. its actually a problem and now that i know. im permanently quitting any blizzard game as of this moment. they have abused us as customers for too long and provided piss poor support for this game in particular. with the new necro money grab im done.F(forget) BLIZZ! im permanently quitting any blizzard game as of this moment.Nomad8 16 Dec

14 Dec Unstable Anomaly? I just had a fatal incident with my Monk, where the "Near Death Experience" didn't trigger at all as far as I can tell, which makes me a bit more suspicious about other similar "fail-safe" skills. The name of this skill "Unstable Anomaly" seems to be quite a gamble in itself if it's too unstable too count on. I am not really in the mood to test it. Does Unstable Anomaly work in Hardcore or is it as broken and flimsical as my other Near Death Experience? I kind of feel like this quote "I'm addicted to placebos. I'd give them up, but it wouldn't make any difference." (Steven Wright)Janmanden2 14 Dec
10 Dec CHC vs FireDMG on Hellfire for DH. Hi there. I have a question regarding the 10% cap in CHC vs CHD. I currently have firedmg on my Hellfire, but I am questioning weather not to change that to 10% CHC. But then I would have much more than 10% of my current CHD in my CHC lvl. Does that 10% rule really apply that much, or is it just a rumor? Thx for your help.Dactaronia0 10 Dec

04 Dec Anyone else playing through campaign to start season? Hi there, I just wondered with my (only) clanmate if there are more people like us who start the season by leveling up the first hero in campaign mode.

22 Nov Legacy Natalya's Wrath (Disc Regen) A long while ago, I permanently quit Diablo 3 (HC EU). I still have a few old legacy items, most notably a full Natalya's Wrath Set (2 rings Natalya's Mark), the one with the Discipline regen, and a Dex Zunimassa's Journey (IAS Boots). I remember (from back when diabloprogress ranked individual items), one of the rings was #1 HC EU, after the patch which transformed the Natalya's set for good. So technically, it should still be the among the better ones that exist, although of course the desired rolls on items must have completely changed during all these years. The boots were ranked #3, if I remember correctly. The other pieces are shabby at best. About a year after I quit, I used to login every once in a while, only to find a variety of offers (ingame and/or cash) for both the ring and the boots. However, the offers were not attractive enough (or too scammy) for what I consider to be quite rare items. Today is the first time in years that I checked back into the game, I am not even sure that these items can be traded anymore!? In case there is anybody interested in further conversation about these items, please feel free to contact me. I also greatly appreciate any comments about how to find any interested parties, the value of the items or anything else related to them. Many thanks.Qyx0 22 Nov

18 Oct Non-Seasonal Hardcore Guild The Eternal Elite <TEE> Is for non-seasonal characters only. You must have at least one non-seasonal level 70 hardcore character in order to join the clan. If you don't like starting over, but are more interested in perfecting your gear/characters and building wealth, this clan is for you. The main purpose of the clan is to provide a small community that can do non-seasonal: split bounties, power leveling and key farming together. Members are distinguished in one way only: Those who have at least one non-seasonal hardcore character that has survived for at least 500 hours will be ranked as Undying, which gives Officer-level permissions. Those who have not made it to 500 hours on a non-seasonal hardcore character will be ranked as a Mortal with limited permissions. If all of your 500+ hour non-seasonal hardcore characters die, you are demoted to Mortal, and you can never again reach the rank of Undying, unless you make a new account. Members who mostly play non-seasonal are desired. Reply with your battletag for an invitation.sindro4 18 Oct

21 Sep Windows 10 update today 21/9 beware Just a note that after updating today and starting playing D3 I'd been playing about 90 mins when suddenly everything froze except my character. After waiting a minute or two I tabbed out to be greeted with Windows firewall has blocked Diablo 3 from blah blah. I granted access of course but still was timed out and dc'd. The point being I had already allowed access for my games ages ago so obviously the new update has reset something, so I thought I would warn hc players. For me it was just an irritation as on a sc charater. Come back Windows 7, I know it's been a while but win 10 updating is pants.BadandMad1 21 Sep
