[Official] Diablo III Information and Discussion Thread - Page 2788

post #27871 of 30159
@Valor958 - yep, unfortunately it is pretty late for some. I just found out my wife might be staying in Montana for longer than expected (she took the kids for a long weekend that's turning into an extended week). I told her "...not that this should influence your decision...but Diablo Season starts Friday..." lachen.gif

In other news - I think I found a good controller app to use on PC. I'd still use a mouse for inventory/town (so I'll have a wireless one handy) but after playing console for a week or so, the general run around and do sheeit is pretty nice with a controller. Since I play on a projector anyway, I'm hoping it translates well, but we'll see.

If anyone is interested, it is at http://cutekickstudio.com/tools/arpg-gamepad-controller/. I will say it will take time to get used to, especially any "shift+action" events, so that you can stand still and fire a skill. I will also say, that if you have played on console and gotten used to the controller setup, it is easy to just mirror that.

BTW - I'm not saying that controller is better than mouse/kb. I'm a PC gamer through and through. I literally use my console for the past 5+ years for mostly Rock Band with the family and I think controllers are a horrible plague on mankind, unless you're playing a fighting/platform-style/arcade-style flying/driving game (and don't have a flight stick or wheel for the latter two respectively). I will also reiterate (I mentioned this in a previous post regarding playing on X1) that the controller will not push GR as it is generally ineffective (e.g. - precise targeting). For a lot of the game that is simply grinding and moving around is what I'm looking for. I will also have my mouse/kb handy in case the controller won't work out.

anyhoo - I'm looking forward to season7! biggrin.gif

*edit - I should also mention there may be a higher chance I'll blackout while using a controller, so we'll see how that works. redface.gif

anyone on b.net today - did they patch up, or will it come closer to S7 start?

Start of each season, Grinding Gears introduces a new mode into the season. I think it adds a lot of replay.

Current Season
Prophecy – One monster per area can drop a Silver Coin. These can be traded with Navali, who can exchange one silver coin for a prophecy. Prophecies have various effects: they can add new enemy encounters to zones, improve crafting outcomes, guarantee a unique drop, and so forth. There are even prophecies that require the player to have a certain unique item equipped, which upgrades the unique item when completed.

Previous Seasons
Perandus - Perandus coins dropped off mobs. Each zone had a chance to spawn a merchant randomly within the zone. Trader would offer and item for coins. Items could range from special potions, to unique gear, maps or crafting material. Since trading is a big part of the game. You could in essence buy and item that may trade for 3x - 10x its value on the trade market.

Talisman - Special mobs had a chance to drop a talisman. Talismans could be worn (they had stats) or multiple Talismans of the same item level could be converted to the next tier or use for special maps. Again adding a new layer of replay.

There were other leagues that added special abilities to bosses or spawned random powerful mobs in zones, that when killed dropped special items.


The point being that other than just introducing new items or nerfing and buffing classes. It added a new element to actual game play that enticed me to want to start from scratch each season.

Getting excited biggrin.gif I'm home from work at 5pm EST so i have time to make/eat dinner and have family time, then 8pm til 2-4am... Diablo grinding. Anyone up else for grouping? I haven't decided on what I'm rolling, but basically anything except a WD. I was never able to 'get into' a WD, nor was I able to run a Necro in D2.

^should be 5P PST - assuming work doesn't kick me in the nutz.

I'll be online with whomever or on my own (sometimes I miss the boat cause of work and instead of waiting for a spot I just head out on my own). tongue.gif D/L and I ran through it a few seasons ago as we were both left holding our own. smile.gif

interesting info @Cryosis00 - thx for sharing. I think D3 used to be a little better when Season had specific things it enabled, but when people whined about the changes, they opened them up for NS. but you're right, mostly it's about buffing/nerfing. It's almost like "ugh, this set sucks...I guess I'll wait a season or two when they decide to give it some love again..." pretty damn lame, instead of just opening up more variety. who cares if *they* don't like support classes. make it so that other dmg classes are more viable without nerfing support. ah well...

I am going to miss the start date...I wont be back from P.R. til after the start...

I also took a job in Seattle, so I am moving too, making my season 7 start even later.


However, the wife and kids are staying in Atlanta while my wife finishes up her current set of classes she is teaching....so I will have like 6 weeks that I will have nothing to do in the evenings but play catch up with you guys. I am stoked to play again. I have pretty much sat out the last two, and barely touched the one before those...

Played some non-season this evening. Adjusting my Barb to a more up to date build which makes use of three different sets simultaneously. It uses the Raekor's set, Immortal King's set and the Bastions of Will set. So you can pretty much decide whether you go as a furious charge dominant spec or an ancient spear dominant spec. An extremely versatile build. The addition of the Bastions of Will set makes the whole build even more potent. Played for about 3 hours and almost got all the necessary items, I already had the full Raekor's set though. The Ring of the Grandeur is the only key item missing, but farming Act I bounties is boring to say the very least.

In season will go for Zunimassa's set for my WD, should be fun. Build looks promising,

I think I may start with a DH for the season start. It goes in with my current pattern of achiev running. I need to level a 2nd DH and there's a few achievs gained simply by killing TONS of stuff... like the Hunter or Hunted achiev to kill 100,000 demons. eesh lol. Plus, i like spinning all over the map with strafe lol

^the Mara set dungeon is pretty easy too, IIRC. I think it was @Mr.Cigar who posted a video of it?

*edit - Maybe it was another set?
