will be interesting to see how the reg monsters are harder drop better loot works out
Well there are a few good rolls throughout, but those one handed stuff sells faster.
Savage onehanded of (insert elemental damage or Death affix) sells for like 1.5 - 3m ea.
Grim onehanded of (insert elemental damage or Death affix) sells for like 10m - 15m ea.
That one I posted I got a few months ago where prices were still high. Sold it for like 60m.
While 150+ mainstat, 60+ ARs armors took weeks before selling em.
Found around 6 legendaries in my time of around 150 hours of gaing...all of them except one was crap.
Yes i just read it wrong at the time lol..
Well i can honestly say i never had a good one of those. And took way more than 150h to find 6 lol.
im just tired...
i farm act 1-2 and occasional act 3. i cant find weapons upgrade for my wizard.
im using a 2hander 1100 dps, 80cit for kiting and a 550 dps, 700 loh 1hander for critical mass.
i've been trying to find a 1hander with 800+dps, arcane power on crit and at least 500 loh. I just cant find it. THe ones on the auction house costs 10mill+, which is pretty much all my gold. Most of the time, I cant even win the auctions.
salvage those ilvl61 and above.. Fiery Brimstones' price just ballooned up lately.
Hye guys, I was looking at that yesterday. I have the lastest driver, Computer is way overkill for D3, but I'm getting some lag spike, and when it happen, I see my GPU usage drop from 80-95% to 50%, and I get some lag.. really frustrating xD
CPU/HDD lag. possible even internet lag, with D3 being online.
1.04 Class changes
I installed 12.3 drivers and those issue's have gone for me.. I used to get terrible slows to the point i was getting 3-10fps..
As if the barb has to be any stronger lol.
Here's a video with some of the new legendary items changes.
Here's the page with some of the changes.
Wow all i see is "up from xx", its a big buff to everyone
Thats really cool, too bad it wasnt like that from the start
Agree: better late then never, i guess!
I bet they are rolling out simple changes (on their side), that make some players come back and use the RMAH some more.
Yeah, here's hoping I get lucky and get to make some money.
^ Beat me to it.
Well it looks freaking awesome.
Can't wait to drop MF/GF items and swap for pure DPS as I level paragon. Basically every 5-6 levels for me will be 1 MF item I can change.
Really..that's why I stopped playing...at least Blizzard admits to the problem as a problem...
OMG, level 159!
Honestly, sounds good. So now, I won't have to grind for loot that won't come, and just end uo costing me gold, and, I'll get rewarded for the time spent playing.
Sounds good to me, little rewards like that have kept me plating for 400+ hours in BF3.
Now, some new maps and quests would be great too...
I was on 12.2, tried 12.3 and 12.4, now I'm on the 12.6 WHQL, always get this, a a begining of a game, and sometimes after too. it's quite anoying.
I guess I will try with a wire to see. I'm on wireless N, but been playing WoW, BF3, starcraft 2 and never had any lag.
CPU, I doubt, i5 2500k @ 4.7ghz, always been running fine xD. For HDD' I'll give a shot on the SSD instead of the 1Tb WB Black.
well blizz you've at least piqued my interest to give the game another shot once the new patch drops, don't F' it up. ANd get PvP out!
If it comes on time, that should be patch 1.922275: if it doesn't come on time ...
It should, therefore, be just around the corner ...
full patch notes. get ready for some awesome fixes.
except energy twister, I dont like that so much. haha
TLDR; Good patch, if you gave up on Diablo this might be worth checking out!
