Diablo 3 Podcast #216: Most and Least Iconic Skills Pt. 2

  • 1:00 — Recent play report: James is on vacation, Dave is braving a WD, and Flux explains his reluctant embrace of the UE set.
  • 23:00 — What makes a skill “iconic?”
  • 25:00 — Least iconic Witch Doctor skills. All guests agree that all the WD skills are well-designed/themed, so nothing is totally out of place.
  • 32:00 — Most iconic Witch Doctor skills. Little agreement is achieved.
  • 43:00 — Monk is an un-iconic class to start with. How does the Eastern martial arts style fit with the European Monk visuals?
  • 46:00 — Least iconic Monk skills. All support skills? No shortage of nominations for the least list.
  • 52:00 — Most iconic Monk skills show the most agreement of any class. Three way mindmeld for the most iconic of all!
  • 1:00:30 — Flux has lots of Barb skills for the “least” list. Debate ensues.
  • 1:08:45 — Most iconic Barbarian skills. All combat skills? Not necessarily.
  • 1:21:00 — Diablo 2 updated to 3D grapics would be… worth playing? Popular?

  1. So tired of hearing UE is a BS training wheels build. Try running high GRs and see how long you can “stand in a corner and left-click/right-click.” You are continually having to reposition and, unlike Nat’s, you cannot attack while you’re moving. It’s a good thing that it’s so powerful because if it wasn’t it would basically be regulated to what the Waste set is for barbs now. That is, strictly a farming/speed build. I haven’t played every char/build but I have played many, and UE is by far the build that gets wrecked by reflect more than any other.

  2. Could someone (anyone) please volunteer to help Flux out before he has Dave the Brave on another podcast? He adds virtually nothing to the conversation other than completely misinterpreting Flux’s comments. For the “most iconic WD skills” discussion he seemed to be completely missing the point, being more obsessed about the SOUNDS the skills make than anthing else. It’s excruciating to listen to… New drinking game: Take a shot every time Dave starts describing a skill, but doesn’t remember the name and someone else jumps in to tell him the correct name. You will be wasted before the counter hits 15:00.
