R.o.s Patch 2.2 Unhallowed Essence 6pc set 

Been trying out the new UE set these couple days. The damage output is way better then the previous m6 build i was running. I would say its easier to play, but slow. Was able to clear up till greater rift 57 in a four man party for now ( wd/ sader/ dh/ wiz). Will have to test some more. 😊 Need to get a better kridershot though. 🙂  

* Update: Seems like the group composition of wd/ sader/ dh/ dh is still superior. Completed grift 62 in 13 minutes 29 seconds.

 

Good morning!

It’s going to be another hot day again, ugh. Been wanting to talk a little about Diablo 3 but haven’t really gotten around to it. I’ve been playing the wizard character more frequently now that my demon hunter has already hit paragon 100.  I alternate between the CM wiz and Archon build. The former requires more effort and a certain degree of alertness as some skill in timing is needed while farming in mp 10. The archon build requires minimal brain power, mindless zapping of minions needed only. Perfect for days when I want to play from the backseat. Haha. Below is a screencap of my Active and Passive skills. With all the buffs on, the wizard has about 370k dps. Not bad I guess?

Patch 1.0.8 is now live! Bugs and all.

Breaking news!!! (For me anyway.)

When I logged in this morning, T who was online, told me first thing that he is now a billionaire.

My first reaction was:

“YOU. ARE. KIDDING. ME.”

He said no, there was actually some glitch and gems were selling for 200 million gold each( thereabouts, I forgot the exact price). I haven’t gone to google about the whole hoo-ha yet. Anyways, quite a number of people immediately proceeded to abuse the system by going in to the AH, buying a whole load of gems, then reselling it back on there, neatly making some seriously big bucks with minimal effort and time. I guess there’s gonna be an influx of Richie Riches inside D3 now. I won’t lie, I’m slightly crushed that I missed the opportunity to join in the abuse!! Those lucky buggers!! Haha.

Needless to say, the RMAH and AH is currently down on “urgent” maintenance. And there is no ETA as to when it’s gonna be back up. ;P

Diablo 3 humour

I woke up semi reluctantly this morning, checked Facebook sleepily on my mobile phone, saw a post  D3 put up about a person who made a thread focused on finding multiplayer groups in preparation for patch 1.0.8 on this week’s community commentary shout out, read some comments half heartedly, stopped short and read one with increasing interest and literally laughed out loud twice at this one.

I shall quote him directly. Hahaha. Not the whole paragraph but the funny part. I can literally taste the acidic sarcasm stemmed from pure displeasure emanating from this amusing individual. But I do get what he was saying. There are ALOT of annoying speedy gonzales barbs in the D3 public games breezing around without a care in the world far, far ahead of everyone else without waiting or cooperating with the rest of the team ( it is called a co -op game for a reason surely!). I would think that it’d make much more sense for them to play alone if they don’t want to wait for the group.  Bad drops all around, yeah most of the time, but some of the gear that I’m using now were pretty good drops, so I won’t complain. Tee hee.

Multiplayer changes won’t help as long as the game still isn’t worth playing. Yeah, me and my friends can party together more efficiently, while we talk about how !@#$ty all the drops (and most everything else) are. Me and two other people can walk through a desolate land of corpses (and unpicked up loot) and maybe catch a glimpse of the barb in the group whirlwind or sprint by… That’s… Fun?

But hey, at least we can search the AH better now, and well, I dunno we can um, talk about how Diablo used to be a respected and highly entertaining IP? This game is a turd, polishing it won’t help. Neither will “incentivizing” multiplayer when everyones friends list is a ghost town because of how badly you’ve ruined this game.

Generally, there is a lot of unhappiness with this game as many of the players feel that it is too limited and dumbed down. We keep playing the same acts over and over again. No new content, no new territories to explore etc etc. the list goes on forever so I won’t embellish.  I do enjoy playing this game, but I hope that one day soon, i’d see some expansion sets… any kind of variation at all. Though I wouldn’t hold my breath while waiting. 😉

Diablo III

pfft

Screencap update on my secret life of gaming. Currently there’s only one I love playing, and that’s D3.

I love the color, graphics, feel of the whole program. I can’t seem to appreciate other games because I keep feeling that visually they don’t measure up to this particular one?

I want to up my dps more, more, more! Blizzard, give me better drops please. Www. ;p

Posted a short video of my gameplay. It’s not the most professional, but I hope that it’d be a little entertaining at the very least!
Just discovered my computer’s Quicktime screen recording function and decided to give it a trial spin. I can even use imovie now! #noob
