Its way harder to play both classes in season5. You need full ancient gear to be able to use the new Cube recipe. I cant decide, DMO looks cool as well as LoN wizard build, but I wouldn't mind playing any of the DH Builds since they are all high grift viable.
What's the dankest sader build for party play this season? Roland's sweep?
While interesting, pretty sure both builds fall behind even invoker for group play. Poking around seems like LoN stuff would be good but that's a bit of a stretch for a fresh seasonal character.
Really not sure if I can be arsed to play season, I got so many mats and money on my ns that I need to burn through
And it's not like I really need 1 extra stash tab
a nice guide of everything related to season 5, including builds
>pet crusader is finally viable
>as a bowmeme spec for bounties
Probably you, I don't know. I only play sader and WD, but a friend that mains DH is pretty hyped because his favorite set was buffed.
And, honestly, I'm ok with that.
>took 5 seasons to make thorns viable outside of a bug
Thorns were never seen as viable because everyone builds glass cannons, being a "tank" is laughed at, gotta kill fast!
Speed demon shit gets old, no wonder everyone bots, and those who don't complain about bots.
Diablo doesn't have long enough draw time to make that 3 months worth a shit, just got the items later anyway.
Now there are no seasonal items, unless you want to get on conquest for a tab, which isn't a fix to stash space, just need a fucking character specific stash added on top of what we have.
>tfw I dont know what to play
pls no 0
>>Torment Scaling Information
This is outdated.
>that dude in your gild that says he spent 300k death breaths turning yellows into legens to get a weapon in s4 and still nothing
Why the need of lying when you can see anything he did or got?
I don't understand these people
the best build uses them as a generator and for arcane dynamo and regeneration. It also uses delsere's magnum opus and arcane orb with arcane orbit rune. You basically spam blades and use arcane orbit when you get 5 dynamo stacks.
Seasonal items are fucking gone, yes, they realized no one gave a shit about seasons with Paragon in play.
Maybe if they put your paragon into your season and got rid of that ladder more might've done season for exclusives.
I know, I always end playing with best waifu.
So, now the only difference between season and non-season characters is that your character just stops being seasonal when the season ends?
What is even the point of playing with a seasonal character?
>new d3 patch
so how's this shit work. are all the new legendaries and whatnot gonna be available immediately today for non seasonals and the season won't start until friday or is all that shit gonna be locked until friday for non season too?
Fem barb, right?
In the new area I followed this ghost and got a legendary shield that's only good for transmog. Afterward, it floated off to what looks like the Tristram cathedral off the balcony. Is there more there? I can't find anything about it.
What events/locations were in Greyhollow Island when you explored?
>crazy druid and his tree buddies
>forest prayer with tons of bats
>two-floor cave full of naga knockoffs
>survivor's den but there weren't any survivors in it, just tons of spooky skeletons
A month ago I tried seeing if there was a /d3g/ over here, and couldn't find it. And now I see it as im about to head to /wowg/
Do you guys just come around for a week after a new patch/season starts then go away or something?
Fuck this Wastes Barb dungeon. Just fuck it.
It was bad enough when you had to rend 10 things 3 times, but now it's 5. You gotta fucking run around without getting hit a single time, group shit up, rend it, it all dies pretty much instantly. Repeat 4 times.
Would be easier with lower damage, but then you can't kill all the fucking elites in time. It really makes me wonder if they tried this before pushing it out.
i give it two weeks before they open stash tabs to everyone and play the "we listened to your feedback" card even though everyone was telling them what a blunder it is for the entire length of ptr.
to add insult to injury consoles get 5 buyable tabs from the get go. i dont get why they keep trying to force seasons, they're fun and people who find them fun are going to play them anyways and whether its people playing regular or season its still people playing the game, besides conqueror should have a better reward. why blizzard keeps trying to pigeonhole people into seasons by gating qol things is really weird.
Odds - Play Crusader on nonseason right now
Evens - Wait til Friday to start a femwiz
0 - Start and beat Witcher 3, then play season
>i dont get why they keep trying to force seasons
>to add insult to injury consoles get 5 buyable tabs from the get go
that's precisely the reason. they have investors to pander to. they don't care very much about what you think, you'll eat whatever they shit on your plate.
The ONLY fucking thing I want in Diablo 3 is for Blessed Shield to be viable again. I thought it was finally going to be with the new items and they fucking blew it by making it worse than a boring as fuck thorns set.
What in the hell were they thinking?
I've spent 10 minutes on this new island and I'm already sick of the dying noise the little tree niggers make
It's very long and grates on my ears
Is getting specific weapons easier now with upgrading? Or will I stay go 1000+ hours without a woe? Last time I played was season 1/2, dont remember. Played around 1000h wizard without ever seening it
Gonna play the game for the first time later today, any quick recommendations on stuff like what difficulty to start off on or what stuff to avoid?
Most likely going to play the not-paladin or monk
Go monk, experiment with torment levels see which ones fit you the best. Check out Quin69's videos on youtube for everything related to monks. He's playing monks exclusively and you'll get all the info you need there.
>Crusaders finally get a proper thorns build with an actual dedicated set
>Hack, Sanguinary Vambraces, and Vo'Toyias Spiker- all thorns themed items- don't interact with the set at all and you're better off with other weapons/armor in those slots
Oh well, I'll take what I can get.
So, the crazy guy in the woods is the high cleric son, which was supposed to kill Sara but killed the "god" nereza, therefore transforming the isle in what it is now. Anything in missing?
i thought a stash tab was a column with 5 rows or tabs then i saw in a short video that you only get 1 row or tab even though it unlocks at the top as a new column
guess we will get 2 of those in seasons but still gay since one is gonna be used for duplicate gems now
unless i'm mistaken on the seasons
in s3 the power creeped up and we started running higher greater rifts fast which leads to more shards and drops
in s4 they normalized some of the drop rates, there are still rare drops but it should be a bit more balanced across the board and once again the power creeped up
s5 might be the biggest power boost ever so all that increases and you can get something like 400 shards for a quick greater? also should have way more drops at the end of each one
this too look into the cube recipes it was a great addition
I'll play Wizard anyway
Feels like heaven
So what's the fotm this season? Is group play still 50 times more efficient than solo play?
If you want to play support for groups go barb is the only support that is guaranted in the 4 and 3 group meta.
Also post fem barbs.
>Your Arcane Torrent, Disintegrate, and Ray of Frost also cast your other damaging Arcane Power Spenders every second
I feel dumb for not understanding this but there's like 9 spells that are spenders
Wtf does it mean
Does it cast meteor/blizzard/hydra on a point or something
>tfw I am the only one posting fem barbs.
Is nig doctor any good this patch? Cant decide between nignog and saderqt
and when you rebirth it for the season it will keep the name, class, gender and playtime and will be completely stripped and reset to zero
it's for people who get limited on slots, say you always play a DH and want to keep your playtime on that particular character, you can rebirth it for the new season something like that
Why not post the superior waifu instead?
>>128424446 (You) funny guy
>Some chink slut
Baka desu senpai
Let that rage flow, you will be one of us soon...
Sorry, I'm not gay :^)
>having a guy as a waifu
I'd rather a female slut
like DH because Wiz is pure
New diablo 3 player. My buddy and I have been playing. We are level 3. Myquestion is if I played more and level up then can we still play? Do the enemies scale to his level? Or is it like borderlands where where a couple levels under gets you killed. Thanks in advance
The way it works on PC is whoever makes the game determines the monster level. If you're a lot higher than he is have him make the game and you join it. Everything will be his level and you can speed him through it.
You can play together but the difficulty will be set to the level of the party leader (the one who opened the game).
Except on console, there you're scaled to the level of the highest leveled player
>could rebirth my original male Wiz with 500h played but the female is superior in every way
Paid gender change when?
>Log on to try some things before the season starts
>Have so many materials from all the seasons past that I could probably make a full set of ancient legendary gear using the cube
Why would anyone play non seasonal? I really don't get it, why would you skip all the fun of leveling and the initial gearing up just to start the rat maze early with over 1k paragon levels?
Hours played aren't in any way worth playing male Wiz.
Female Wiz or bust
Got this today,should i changue my build to might of the earth?
I'm currently running IK set.
Barb, Sader and Monk are the three classes I haven't played loads of. Mainly because Barb used to be too good and Monk/Cru had no damage at the times when I played them
>buy the game
>complete coincidence that the new season starts soon as well
>find out that old characters get put on some weird server where you wont find other players or whatever
>appearantly no reason to play the game until dragons dogma comes out at which point i'm going to be playing that instead anyway
just fuck me
>wiz gets fireshit welfare set
>its 2nd best
In solo all classes are decently balanced, with monks being the weakest.
If you are looking to play in groups support barb will get you into any group. Wiz got crazy AoE and dh got crazy single target dmg.
But hopefully some of the theory crafters will come up with some sick builds during the season and mix up the meta even more.
I havent played in fucking ages, but from the looks of it theres been an absolute ton of updates, if i come back wheres the best place to start - just a fresh character or is it worth continuing with old horribly horribly out of date ones?
ok cool ill do that on friday
i have another retarded question, all this "build guides" which follow a sort of equipment setup, ok i get that but surely youve got to randomly farm all that equipment before any of this even becomes relevant, have they streamlined things now in order to get class sets easier?
Did someone say female barb?
>find 3 legendaries in my first 2 hours of playing
Fuck this shit man, I'm never doing those dungeons again
No they are not weak, and here I mean weak as in total garbage. But they are the weakest of the bunch.
Don't get me wrong, the good monks will still be doing gr 80+. But in their current state they are generally outperform by the other classes in any given role.
I do hear they have a crazy speed farming build though, which will be quite useful in s5.
Tried the unhallowed set challenge. Best run was 4/6. Fuckin groups are rarely consisting more than 15 spiders, how the fuck should i hit 20 of them 6 times? Fuckin garbage, its not a challenge, its just try again till the rng gives you groups big enough...
I just bought Diablo III for the PS4, despite already having it on the PC.
This shit is comfy as fuck. They really did a good job on it. If they add seasons and get rid of hacked items, it'd be perfect.
The console versions have mechanics and designs specific to the console to make it function better.
You could rig a controller up to the PC but it's nowhere near the same.
they're never adding seasons. i thought the exact same thing. game would be a perfect 10/10 console game with seasons. possibly the best console game ever created.
it's really...eh. not very good. just use a thumb trackball if you need comfier pc gaymen.
So I got $60 in Blizzard bucks for Christmas and I think I am going to buy DIII, what should I expect, is the game fun for beginners who have NO experience with a Diablo game ever? Thanks
You don't even need to do enough damage most of the time. Just don't die so much it's obvious you don't belong and 90% of the time no one will say anything.
This is of course unless you're in a group pushing the boundaries. In which case you'd obviously want the best build but you don't just randomly end up in those groups.
I just want to play around and try different random skills for variety at first, but I haven't played in a long time so maybe the "meta" is settled and using random skills gets you kicked, kinda like in mobas.
>made a wizard character because bored
>pretty fucking easy, even for D3
>mfw it literally deletes everything in your path
I think if he starts this season he won't have to unlock adventure mode.
Yeah it's very easy, just wait until friday at 8PM and create a season character. If you want to play before then try out story mode and try out classes.
If you need a leveling build for any class just ask here and someone will tell you a good one.
I just put on my jade harvester set and hopped in a grift, does no where near as much damage as my helltooth build.
Where the fuck are you getting this information from?
>heard that WD's would be shit this season
>mfw according to this they will actually be pretty useful all around.
What class do I play in the new season?
I was thinking either barb or DH, they are the ones I've had the most fun with in earlier seasons. I played dart doctor last season so can't be bothered with that, crusader looks so dull.
Is wizard still shit?
What about monk?
Man I don't know.
This. Come join us in NOFUN on EU, not sure if there has been a purge yet but there should be room. Id say we are less memespouting and autistic than most vg clans in other games
So I've been playing the new DH builds, UE is pretty good for some T10 and grift 65 speedfarming while Maradeur is propably really good for GRift Pushing as well as for groups, Shadow Set too.
However I still cant decide between Wizard or DH for the new season.
Melee Delsere seems really fun and you can do many things that work while leveling/grinding with all the new Wizard Legendaries, Disintegrate and Arcane Torrent finally seem viable when you're early in the season. I'm not quite sure if Wizards will be as good as DHs for groups though.
>tl;dr Liked the changes on DH but wizard seems fun, doesn't know what to play on the new Season. Help
well worth the 5 minute wait
>get mad when you point it out to the sheeple
literally all of you are same fags. Kill yourselfs actually talk about fucking diablo and not leddit.
>all his posts contain the words faggot, fedora, autist, retard or meme
Do you have to start some sort of event to begin the free welfare set 'quests'? Or do you just automatically get it once you get to 70?
Stop being angry guys, post more tits and/or ass
two pieces for level 70, two for Zoltun Kulle kill on T2 and the last two pieces for a finished grift 20
And they just can't stop being butthurt fags
yeah I best start calling you "mad" or "faggot" so I win all the internet warz
>Good luck in the future for not taking obvious b8. Bye! :D
pulling words straight out twitch chat here
You guys should play more Diablo 3 and less Shitpost Simulator 2016
You somehow expected the top reward for set dungeons to not be completing them all?
>so then wtf is the point of playing seasons?
A fresh start for those who don't want to mindlessly farm for 1.000 hours to find an item with 1 more main stat
Nope, %exp is the new magic find, has 1/10th of the effect on lvl 70.
Afaik you can still have 10 Mystic Allies
it's a feeling you will know when you start playing
>everyone is starting new so low levels are flooded with people racing
>even if it's just a couple weeks everyone on your friends list started playing again
>when you see people in public games you want to be better than them
>watching streamers and chat for more info on what is going on around you
>exploits will hit
>starting completely fresh and getting that sense of character progress when you first got the game, need to earn everything again
>many things are new because of the big patch so it's not even like you were playing the same game as last season
>comparing your efficiency and progress with other players seeing if you can keep up or fall behind rapidly
>bought D3 for whatever fucking reason
>complains about drops being to rare when every fucking nut bug drops a leg now
>doesnt play after completing campaign
>doesnt play after reaching max lvl
>asks whats the point in seasons
Why do you rancid cunt juices buy this game?
I'd say from easy to hard:
Barb = WD
Could be completely different tho
1. get rope
2. hang self
1. get rope
2. hang self
