PTR Community Buff, Queues, Return for the Weekend



[caption id="attachment_384698" align="alignright" width="250"] Zing, zang, boom.[/caption]Friday evening a blue announced that the PTR community buff was back on, giving players a weekend of super-charged item finding.

The following buff is now active on the PTR:

  • 2000% Bonus Chance to find Legendaries

This buff was reactivated on July 24 at 5:00 p.m. PDT. Happy testing!

In related news, game creation queues are back to 4+ hours Friday night.

In other related news, our clan is back in action, after this weeks' patch wiped all PTR characters and clans. (We were maxed out at 150/150 members before the wipe, and had been kicking anyone who hadn't logged on for a week+ to create room for active players.) Our PTR clan is open to all, softcore or hardcore, and as usual on the PTR, it's useful to be in a clan since you can join someone else's game, rather than sitting for hours trying to create your own.

Just search for "Dii" with the language set to "English" it should come. Clan Leader is Sollipsistic (Flux ingame name)

And they didn't even need it, b/c it was stupid easy to gear up w/o it. Either they had a watered down version this whole time (probable) or I was just really lucky (not probable), but I was rolling T6 beer mode (one hand on the mouse, one hand drinking a beer) around P75. As a Witch Doctor, the saddest class ATM. ---

However, the new Spider set is pretty fun. No, it's not very viable past Grift 40ish, but it's pretty fun. And it is easily the best looking set in the game.

I've been playing with the new Helltooth set. It's quite fun too. And there are people pushing 60+ with it in softcore. I played with the spider set before the wipe and loved it. Does it at least feel a little less squishy now that they fixed the defense buff issue?

Dunno, used Serpent w/ Life Link Dogs. Huge Toad is great for healing, but it doesn't do really anything to lower incoming damage.
