A few posts I came across this morning on my rounds on the forums I wanted to share with you guys.
If you’re looking for a challenge then MrNajsman and his friends have come up with a gameplan they are currently playing. The Self-found Challenge Event. The basic rules are to acquire a full set of unid’d ilvl63 items, identify them together and distribute amongst your team and starting at Act 1 see how far you can get. He explains briefly their group mix, how they’ve prepared and how they are getting on.
PTR feedback from TheThirdMan. He’s noticing the benefit greatly of the changed affix “Health Globes grant +xx Life” which has now changed to “Health Globes and Potions grant +x to Life“. You may indeed not have noticed this slight change in text but he’s noticed this is making a significant difference to the survivability of his DH.
This of course makes potions all the more useful. I hope not to the degree that there is less strategy to keeping clear of that all important globe bobbing around at the back of a pack that you’re saving for the eleventh hour.
A Couple of discussions on the impact of 1.0.5 on class builds from members experimenting on the PTR that you could find useful, even if you aren’t on the PTR yourself.
Athenau looks at War Cry vs Ground Stomp and their impact regarding Active vs. Passive defense of the Barb.
Moreno has a dilemma. He’s considering the upgrade he will make in gear for his Wizard in 1.0.5 – he’s got 240M budget but not sure which route to take out of the two – strengthen the Shocknado CM build or go Archon? Advice so far is pretty varied but if you find yourself with that much cash burning a hole in your pocket he’d like to know what you would advise. Decisions, decisions.
If you’re tired of cookie cutter monk builds Bash has a new one for you to try..
I’ve juggled a bit around with build and skills these past few days, and have come up with a build that not only has incredible synergy, but is dirt cheap as well. I have A2 on farm mode, and A3 fairly doable – for just 3 mil gold. And you can too..
There is no Serenity and no Mantras either. Crazy talk? Maybe but it’s proving proactive and a lot of fun.
To finish up fmulder has done another Caption this! and we’re up to #24 already if you can believe.
This one I think presents ample opportunity for some smart arse comments and witticisms – I’m sure you can come up with something.
Lastly, I snuck in a small addition to the forum last week. You might have noticed in new threads and posts there is now a thumbs up icon at the top right. To state the bleeding obvious this allows you to rate up a post you find particularly helpful/interesting/funny or whatever, you can remove your thumbs up if you later decide it was actually none of those things after all.
