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!
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.
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. Continue reading «Elemental damage armor in Diablo 3»
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.
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.” Continue reading «Diablo 3 expansion confirmed»
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! Continue reading «Post 1.0.5 act 2 farming in Diablo 3»
Diablo 3 is a very gear centric game. That is no secret. All of the focus on gear, is for one reason alone: more DPS. There are numerous ways to increase your damage: attackspeed increase, crit chance, crit damage, main stat increase….and then there is also increase to elemental damage.
IAS, crit%, crit dam and more main stat is pretty straightforward: you buy an upgrade, put it on and you DPS “score” increases. This is plainly visible on your character sheet. However, increases to elemental damage aren’t displayed directly on your character sheet, which means that they aren’t as popular as the “normal” options, which then again also means, that they are cheaper!
