Tuesday Live Chat Reminder and Rules

A fan asked about the live chat coming up on Tuesday and got some Blue guidelines for what to ask about and how to ask it. Tuesday Live Chat Reminder and Rules:

If enough of us swarm the twitch chats, maybe they can fix some of the most glaring issues with this game right now: trials, auto health pots, 500 bloodshard cap, awful class balance, etc.
We’re already collecting questions right now (you can submit a question by commenting here or by tweeting @Diablo using the #D3QA hashtag) and will be taking questions live from Twitch chat, as well. As fair warning, this particular Tavern Talk is focused on Seasons, so the majority of questions will also be focused on that topic.

If you decide to participate in chat, great! We just ask that you remain civil and avoid spamming. On that note, “swarming” is probably one of the worst things you can do, too, since that all does is flood chat, causing your questions and other players’ questions to move by so quickly that those of us moderating are unable to pull them to be answered. 🙁

As some have already noted, we do actively moderate Twitch chat during livestreams. So, full disclosure: profanity, harassment, and spamming will lead to a time-out, or an outright ban from the channel if the behavior is severe enough or persists for long enough period of time. Asking hard questions or expressing dissent is totally fine, though. Just be respectful, towards those on stream and everyone else hanging out in chat, and you’ll find yourself a welcomed participant.

TL;DR: I hope to see you and many others in chat this Tuesday!

Obviously everyone’s got their own top 10 fix-it list, but seriously — if auto-potion pickup and the too-low Blood Shard cap are two of your top four complaints… the game is in pretty damn good shape!

This is not how D3 bugs are prioritized.

This is not how D3 bugs are prioritized.

Yes, potions auto pickup, but they do so seamlessly, only take up one inv space, and stacks up to 5000. So you’ve got to take 3 seconds to sell them off what, every 2-3 months? As for Blood Shards, I’d really like a higher cap or better yet, the ability to gamble for a class I’m not playing (without actually exiting game and switching character) but again, it’s a pretty minor inconvenience. You’ve got to kill 30 seconds after each Rift anyway, and Kadala is always about two steps from Orek. Just get in the habit of gambling after you shut each Rift and it’s not a big deal.

There are plenty of other Quality of Life fixes that would make a lot more difference in game enjoyment than these, and big changes to be made as well. That said, I hope we’re all wise enough to realize that spamming the chat with the same issue over and over again isn’t going to magically put it atop the Dev’s fix-it list.

  1. “Trials, auto health pots, 500 bloodshard cap, awful class balance, etc.”


    I just quit since last patch.

    • Why do people post to tell us that they quit. If you quit why do you care?

      Then again, why do I post to ask why you posted nonsense.

  2. What's there left to say about seasons that hasn't been spoken about x times already? If that topic ain't dealt with in 10 minutes overall, I'll honestly be a bit disappointed.

    • I guess if they keep the topic narrowed down to something which has only been around for 6months they cant make fools of themselves again with a Herald of Zakarum’esque question.

      Lets see how it pans out i guess. Pity its like 5am in the morning for us aussies 😛

  3. The biggest glaring issue is trials. I just don't like having to do a sub rift to do a greater rift. I know that blizz loves RNG and that is what trials brings but they are just boring as hell. And having to do one everytime you run a rift is obscene.

  4. \As fair warning, this particular Tavern Talk is focused on Seasons, so the majority of questions will also be focused on that topic.\

    A complete waste of time then.

    How about Grifts and Trials ?

    >Elite attributes have 0 balance. There are some that can’t be avoided that 1 shot you even before you even see the Elite. Then there are ones that will never hit you or that do like 1% dmg even on GR 50.
    It makes absolutely no sense.

    How it should be : The most dangerous ones should be somewhat avoidable if you are good and have to spend time to do so. Great examples : Molten + Frozen Pulse (if it doesn’t spawn inside you and instantly starts)

    >Guardians are complete luck too. There are multiple guardians that are even on GR 35 stronger than others at GR 50. Crusader King teleport attack + instant jailer + reflect dmg + spawning skeletons around you and all of this every 5s vs Stonesinger doing nothing.

    >In Group Play Elites get pretty much completely negated….

    >The extremely common entrance 2-3 Elite spawn rift = solo rifters are instantly fucked. Additionally its extremely common now that you get a rift with \just\ 1 elite right at the start that leads to an instant forced end too.

    >Lacuni Stalkers tend to burrow in Trials. Meaning you are fucked without even understanding why the fuck the timer still runs. They don’t get displayed on the map either so good luck finding it since you have to stand on top of them.

    >Winged Assassins + the mentioned Stalkers make solo Trials and Rifts nothing but a coin toss. (IMMUNE TO DMG while jumping and will start it before you even see them)

    >The only way to properly play Grifts currently is by doing them via Community Groups. There is no way to select your wanted key difficulty from the game itself leading to people with lvl 50, 30 and 6 gems all in the same game. 5 failed key/trial requests later someone leaves.

    >no revive in town even after the timer is out = forces solo players with damaged equip to revive at the entrance of rifts because of chasing elites, guardians or ghosts etc. (Thank god our mercs get revived before us so Elites get aggro and already cast Frozen Pulse on top of you BEFORE we are back in the game)

    There are like at least another 10-20 big things with Grifts currently .(Can’t just delete keys etc etc)

  5. Minor issues are blood shard cap, auto-pickup of potions, crafting materials/gems could be set to auto pick up, etc.

    More pressing matters, as far as seasons are concerned, are in regards to botting and exploits.

    Personally, I would like to see more variety in rifts/greater rifts, as well as bounties made more excitable.

  6. not fun enough items is my biggest gripe to be honest, that and the forcing of sets on people… the main reason i loved diablo 2 was the ability to have cross class skills… no character in any ARPG has ever topped my melee bear sorc from the beast runeword and the enchant skill with the freezing act 2 merc. there are so many legendaries with such god awful affixes that they think are really cool and interesting. and what do we get in a patch that they seem so proud of? 2-3 useless legs being made just BARELY less useless. for the love of peat, who cares about balance, give us FUN.
