    No, I am not using a mouse. After shoulder surgery, I need to keep my right arm basically pinned to my right side, so the tablet sits on my lap with my right hand on the buttons, and the stylus and it's two buttons replaces the mouse(no problems using my left arm). I've got a keyboard with mouse intergrated into it as well. And yes, left-handed, hence the buttons on that side. Otherwise my hand would be resting on the buttons. :laugh:


    Tapping the stylus to the surface is like a right click, to focusing on enemies and movement is super-easy. I had issues at first, but figuring out that "shift" keeps you in place worked wonders.



    EDIT: OH, it works great with Bejeweled? :roll: honestly haven't tried many games iwth it yet. Any point-click game is usually OK, FPS games though, forgeddaboutit.


    Yeah, mid-size tablet. A larger one might be a bit nicer. It's nice that you can customize the labels, edit what the buttons do as macros, etc...proven extremely useful for me. When I wanna photoshop, i just load the default profile, and it's back to normal. Great piece of hardware, for sure.

    Did anyone else realize there is an "Elective mode" for skills? You can put any skill in any slot you want.. I fear I may have a lot of tweaking to do when I get home

    Has anyone used the auction house? I looked at it out of curiosity and wow, my equipment sucks. I'm not going to be using it, maybe after I've finished all the difficulties with my main (barb).

    What do you mean by "focus" on stats? Rings and amulets?

    One of the tips is soft and has a spring behind it to make it feel like a felt tip. That IMO would cause less wear on the tablet and be easier on the pin with all the tapping in Diablo. You might wanna try it.

    Meh. Replacement surfaces were $25, so I bought 4. :laugh: Precision doesn't need to be too high though, so I'm using the old worn surface, that has the texture nearly completely gone, so the wear is actually kinda nice. And yes, I am using the grey tip with the srping already. The noise was driving me nuts with the rigid tip. :laugh: It was erocker playing StarTrek, clickclickclickclickclick! ARGH!!!


    :roll:


    Packs of nibs were $10, Wacom covering repalcement stuff like that, and having it so affordable is definitely a huge plus as well, for sure. Spending that extra $130 should have me good for years with maintaining the tablet.

    lol I bet! Well Im glad you are digging that Wacom. I knew you would. They are super nice but the older ones were better built. They had a life time warranty on EVERYTHING. These only have 5 years I think and the surface wears. Old ones look new with a lil Windex. But why buy a new one when it has a life time on it? lol. Wacom realized "Shit no ones gonna buy a new model!" so the added a few features that were needed (tilt and higher DPI) and killed the warranty.

    I know artists who have 10+ year old wacoms. They really are the BEST.

    So, I got a free pass from a fellow TPUer (thanks again AsRock) which is US edition. It works fine over here, my son's at it right now. I thought these are region locked (I'm in EU zone), how come we can play? If I could upgrade paying US dollars would be fine (it's 60 Euros from Blizzard in EU zone). What do you think?

    Why not get a retail copy from Amazon? I paid £32.

    EDIT: I just checked Amazon, they've increased the prices. It's £47 now.

    Yep, but the fact that DW doesn't use Fury that well is just fine, because you take the Talent that gives you a damage bonus when you are full Fury, then you just go to town with Frenzy basically. And when you need some aoe, pop your thing that procs when you get hit (mine crits for about 1300), also use your Barbarian Bros (they are awesome), and if things still aren't dying, then use whatever AoE you chose on right click. Even on a 2 man game with things with extra life, I've walked into a room solo with over 25 monsters in there and a boss and with that strategy they die in literally about 5 seconds (by the time Ufgy catches up they are all dead and he has no idea a boss was even in there).

    @ lvl 23, my wizard doesn't have much DPS but i'm trying to concentrate on dmg WITH MF items rather then purely dmg items.

    Here are a couple of pics (attachments): the 1st is base dmg and the 2nd is with a skill.

    As you can see, not high @ all.

    Naw we had a demon hunter in the group who also never died. Normal was pretty much a cakewalk. NM was also pretty easy. Then hell got vastly more difficult. Currently in Act 3 hell though.

    Probably because you are unfamiliar with Diablo's games?
