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»
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!

Continuing the tradition of off the map wizard builds, these last few days I have had a lot of fun with this new build. I have focused on legendaries before, when patch 1.0.4 was announced and had its patch notes released. In 1.0.4 we saw a lot of legendary items be improved and they introduced legendaries, that you might actually want to be building your character around…so that is what I did!
The new patch is out, in case you didn’t know. From the massive surge of visitors to the site and on the Diablo 3 farming FB group, I think it is safe to assume that a lot of people have decided to pick up Diablo 3 again…at least for a short while. But that is the beauty of a game being free to play. I was almost going to say: “That’s the beauty of a multiplayer game being free.”, but with the changes in patch 1.0.5, Blizzard have effectively killed multiplayer and the social aspect of Diablo 3 Continue reading «D3 patch 1.0.5 is out | legendaries drop like candy»
The real money auction house is a part of Diablo 3, whether you like it or not. The community seems to have gotten used to it and both gear and gold prices have stabilized on it. Of course there are still people with no concept of the worth of things that try and sell crappy legendaries for $250, but overall prices are realistic and it is becoming a very legit way of moving gear and gold, so my guess is that the RMAH is starting to become more popular now that the dust has settled.
But why tell the World about it, then? Simple; as with any other exploit, when enough people know of it, then developers have to take it seriously or it spirals out of control. This has been the case with other in-game exploits in the game, like the Wizard god-mode exploit or the cancel-your-auctions-at-any-time exploit. These were fixed up pretty fast, so once they are out and enough people use them, then action must be taken.
