    The Diablo 3 Podcast #178: Learning to Love RNG:

  • 1:30 — Recent play stories. Flux’s lost Demon Hunter to GR45 carelessness and the ridiculous joys of twinking with a Gem of Ease. Tyr’s Crusader bad luck. N3rdwards’ GR50 club Wizardry. The 1000 Shard club?
  • 11:30 — Why push higher than GR42 when shards from the Guardian max out there? Is botting ruining the Leaderboards, with all the Paragon 800+ cheaters?
  • 20:00 — Magic Find still works? But is finding more random legendaries really worth the trouble?
  • 26:00 — RNG for better or worse. Horadric Cache legendaries are so non-randomly distributed? Name a single Act Five cache leg for bonus points.
  • 40:00 — Greater Rifts vs. T6. Just do GRs and upgrade the keys indefinitely?
  • 49:00 — N3rdwards’ ode to Softcore. Counter point; HC brings the community together with elitism, whether you embrace it or hate it.
  • 58:00 — The hypothetical “no set item” play style has become a reality. Imagine a season of it with full in-game support?
  • 1:04:00 — Diablo 3 expansion #2 coming up at Gamescom? Or at E3 this week?
  • 1:11:11 — Diablo content in Heroes of the Storm. The Crusader has the perfect Blizzard game armor; totally decorative and non-functional.
