Diablo 3 Reaper of souls crusader build – Getting the most out of a casual ARPG?

Diablo 3 Reaper of souls crusader build – Getting the most out of a casual ARPG?

So….it has been a loooooongggg time coming, but I am getting back in the game.

A lot of things have happened, but now things are settling down, I have some spare time for the next foreseeable future and I would like to scratch my Diablo 3 itch, get back in writing and get in to video!

So expect more content and we are back in business!

Crusader builds in D3 ROS….kinda lost over here!

Now, you don’t leave a game like Diablo 3 for almost a year and don’t get left behind, so this is kind of an uphill struggle for me :)

I have started doing some research on crusader builds:

D3 ROS crusader build research – Am I doing this right?!

And how I am going to go about this, but nothing is final yet.

The plan so far is starting a fresh character, probably a Crusader. This means that this page will get constantly updated with my crusader build plans!

I will write a lot of updates here and (this is a big one) start uploading more videos to the YouTube channel…if I can dig out my old passwords! I probably can’t, so I’ll probably end up starting a new channel :)

I am absolutely horrible at video editing, but I am trying to learn it, so join me on my quest to get better at D3 ROS and video editing….and feel free to laugh at me in the process!

And one word of warning for the future of this page: I will do the same amount of informative updates as in the past, but they will be supplemented with “quality of life” updates about all things D3 ROS related. This includes things like where I am at in the leveling process, potential exploits, stupid deaths, cool loot and basically anything else I think is awesome and needs to be shared with the world!

As always swing by the Diablo 3 Farming Facebook, which will also get new life: Diablo 3 Farming Facebook – now with more crusader.

Reaper of Souls is the name of the new Diablo 3 expansion?

Reaper of Souls could very well be the name of the new D3 expac

Finally some news has started to trickle out about the new expansion. Blizzard recently registered a new page on Battle.net – Reaper of Souls.

When you look at the code for the page you find references to Diablo and if you look at the meta description when googling the site, you also find references to Diablo:

When you Google Reaper of Souls, Battle.net pops up in first place and Diablo is mentioned as a trademark.

Diablo 3 PVP blog released | The Angels cried….

…tears of rage and sadness.

Well, the PVP update is out, and I must say I am underwhelmed. I get that they have worked really, really hard on PVP and that they have been totally open about the whole process, but I must say….

Who am I kidding….I get the feeling they haven’t worked on PVP at all, they haven’t been open about anything, have kept their mouths shut for the last 2 months and the fact that Jay Wilson has not been able to finish his PVP blog is because everything related to Diablo 3 and Jay is a mess!

Let’s take a look at the D3 PVP blog, then….

Apparently PVP blog is not coming soon

As I mentioned a week or so ago, the thundering silence from Blizzard might have been rooted in PVP and the fact that they were preparing to release a slew of PVP related blog posts, all based on a tweet by Jay Wilson: PVP blog is coming soon.

Like Blizzard did with 1.0.4, a release of a few blog articles about upcoming features could mean, that said patch was well on its way.

All that has changed, however.

Diablo 3 PVP patch coming soon! | Monk changes and PVP in the same patch?!

Blizzard have been extremely quiet these last few weeks, with no news about patches or what they are working on in general. However, the thundering silence might have a reason, as Jay Wilson hinted on Twitter. And that reason is PVP!

Elemental damage armor in Diablo 3

Continuing on with the elemental damage gear from my earlier post about elemental damage legendary weapons, this time we take a look at what armor pieces can be used to buff your character’s unseen DPS.

One thing is having a high DPS on your character sheet, another is what kind of DPS you are actually doing. Anyone can take a piece of gear and see whether their DPS gets higher or lower. If they are smart, they also look at how their defensive stats are affected, and if they are really smart, they look at their skills and playstyle before deciding on an upgrade. But then there is the unseen DPS, that isn’t mentioned anywhere. That’s what elemental damage is all about.

Which monster power level to farm? | Speed is king

With the new monster power settings in patch 1.0.5, and the Keywardens of D3, and the ability to farm Hellfire Rings, the game difficulty has once again changed. Pretty much since launch, it has become easier to farm Inferno and that didn’t really change with patch 1.0.5. However, seeing as pre-1.0.5 Inferno is about as difficult as current MP3-4 Inferno, are you better off running a lower monster power setting or a higher if you are after maximum farming per hour?

Highest DPS in North America

At this point in time, Diablo 3 has been soundly beaten by most of the players to various degrees. At this point in time, how players play the game is more of a question of what they want to do, and not so much a question of “are they even able to beat Diablo on Inferno”. Well, to be honest, being able to beat Diablo hasn’t been that much of an issue since he was beaten 1-2 weeks after launch.

However, now it is more a question of making the numbers bigger and doing stupid shit. Like this video showcasing a ridiculous amount of DPS against Azmodan.

Diablo 3 expansion confirmed

In a recent Activision earnings call Mike Morhaime, Blizzard CEO extra-ordinaire, announced that there were plans of an expansion to Diablo 3.

This isn’t really a surprise, since Diablo 3 have sold 10 million units, so making an expansion is a no brainer.

There is no release date for the new expansion, except when it is done, although Mike Morhaime does word it a bit more diplomatic:”the quality of the expansion and its gameplay is the top priority, and both will be a “big factor” in driving the actual schedule of the release.”. Blizzard talk for “we release when it is done.”

Post 1.0.5 act 2 farming in Diablo 3

Patch 1.0.5 recently hit. That is no secret. While it did shake up the meta-game with monster power settings and bonus items, Keywardens, and of course the new crafted Hellfire Ring, it didn’t really change a whole of in-game things like the maps. There was a minor change in act 1, with the Watch Tower being moved to Southern Highlands, which has changed the 1.0.5 act 1 farming route a bit, but when we look at the other acts, not much has changed.

So where and what ot farm is a matter of preference now, with enabling monster power settings making all mobs level 63 across all the acts. So the act 2 farming run is still making heavy use of a classic, but that doesn’t make it any less awesome!
