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.
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.

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»
