Lots of content/topics this week, including perma-CC issues, DH set debates, CoE ring and buff icon issues, player UI mods, expanded Grift leaderboards, and D3 expansion #2 theorizing. Featuring Katniss, AdAstra, and Flux.
35:00 — Convention of Elements ring; awesomely powerful but visually lacking. Better buff icons, please.
40:00 — Skull Grasp and the confusion of additive vs. multiplicative bonuses.
47:00 — Damage display numbers. Power Creep has 1-10billion damage displays constantly… too hard to read the numbers with so many digits? Change 4,235,654,781 to 4.2B.
52:00 — Plus control issues and UI modding.
1:01:01 — Progress granted per monster. Why just based on monster hps without factoring in monster AI/difficulty.
1:08:00 — Grift timer countdown on death makes every softcore player crazy. Why not just subtract delay time instead of wasting 30s sitting there?
1:14:00 — Nobbie’s guest article about the 2nd expansion. Skovos and the Amazon/Druid/Werewolf hybrid? Will D3X2 be a full expansion or just DLC thing with a new class and new items/Rift tilesets?
1:24:00 — Greater Rift record tracking. Why not show every character’s best times for every Grift? Achievements for doing all under 5m? Some GR levels with cross-class leaderboard, so everyone on a realm can compete for best time on say, GR25?
1:30:00 — Pet peeves: The lack of blue materials, Infernal Machine farming, and people who like the UE set.
