Writing down thoughts for a team I'm putting together.
- Amazon: Amazons are one of the classes who don't really offer much to directly benefit other party members. They have inner sight and slow missile, both of which aren't really relevant for most situations. Their Valkyrie is not valuable in large team-based games. That being said, javazons are probably some of the most powerful builds in the game, so having at least one is a good idea.
- Assassin: None of her skills benefit the team as a whole directly. One of the more involved classes to play, though.
- Barbarian: Battle Orders and Battle Command are tremendously powerful. Shout's good too. The Barb's high damage as well as his item find are great for teamplay. Having at least 1 will …

I have never owned more than one computer monitor at a time, but I was thinking of getting a 1080p to supplement my 1050p for watching bluerays (or maybe one of those expensive 4Ks which are 2160p wide) and thinking this might be fun if I could replay diablo 1 or diablo 2 like this.

I have been puzzling over this for years now. Multiple builds recommend Sandstorm Trek for footwear. Taurean's Javazon guide names them "with little doubt the best boots" possible for a Javazon. Hnk's Hammerdin build lists them as the best possible choice (without bothering to state why, despite doing so for other items). These are but two of many, many guides singing praises for Sandstorm Trek over other boots.
Let's examine the statistics.
+140-170% Enhanced Defense Decent for boots, but a percentage bonus to a relatively small number is still a small boost. Regardless, several other boot types (Upped Gore Rider, Marrowwalk, and such) offer better defense.
+20% Faster Hit Recovery Nice, I suppose. But nothing eye-opening.

So, in light of BlizzCon 2016, the fanbase seems to have given into hatred and started causing destruction. Or, to use a less flowery analogy, pissed off that after a plenthora of free content after Reaper of Souls, are outraged that they have to pay for the necromancer.
Honestly, it's bizzare. Said free content includes new zones, including an entire remake of D1's labyrinth system (which is seasonal for some reason, so yeah, that sucks), but paid content is suddenly out of bounds? I know everyone was hyped up for a more massive announcement, but I can't really fault the amount of content on offer. Especially since in announcements for other games I play (e.g. HotS, StarCraft), I'll still need to pay for a lot of that content.
So, yeah? Exc…Read more >
Twinking: using particularly useful, low-level items. Collecting thoughts below.
The best twinks are generally set items, low level uniques, and a very select group of rare and magical affixes. I'll be evaluating each in context of early game. Certain traits become much more valuable in contrast to their late-game counterparts, with FRW and damage becoming more important while survivability is optional due to the low level of danger in the early game.
- Angelic Raiment: The weapon is godawful. Thankfully the full set's bonuses aren't mind-blowing, and the ring and amulet are superb for their level if put together with the (average) armor. Overall, a 4/5.
- Arcanna's Tricks: Eh. The amulet's extreme rarity and the mediocrity of the staff set this …
Okay, I've been weighing this issue for quite awhile, and I thought it best to get some feedback. Question is - should there be a Diablo IV article?
Now, yes, the elephant in the room is that D4 doesn't exist, hasn't been announced, and might not even be being worked on. All that's known is that there's some game being worked on, but it could be D3X2, a spin-off, or D4 itself. Usually creating articles based on hypotheticals is a road to disaster, considering that they draw in rampant speculation. That said, there are times when I think a hypothetical product is brought up so many times that it becomes kind of necessary, or at least interesting, to log its history. Half-Life 3 is perhaps the most (in)famous example, but D4 is hardly on the …Read more >
As this blog sounds like, we are looking at the powers, feats and strengths of Diablo that he has shown so far, this also includes what is demonstrated in the Lore, Cinematics and In-Game.
Diablo is perhaps the most powerful demon known to Sanctuary. and perhaps the most feared. He has the ability to influence the minds of his victims and latch onto their most crippling fears, using a person's own worst fears against them. He has the ability to turn the fears of Men into actual creatures, and even the smallest of fears provide him with power. Deckard Cain argued that Diablo would always remain the most insidious, and most powerful of all the Evils. Tyrael likewise considered Diablo to be "the worst of the Three."

Several weapons and armor in Diablo II have actual historical counterparts. While it is a fantasy setting and especially the elite tier items are mostly fanciful names with impressive numbers, the developers did borrow a number of names of arms and armor that did exist in ancient and medieval times. While these aren’t seen to be fit as part of the trivia section, I think it is interesting to look at what place these things had in history, and I plan to try to detail most of these in a multi-part blog post. Most of these have articles in wikipedia, and while I'd be loathe to recommend these articles in and of themselves, many of them do provide concise information for history buffs.
While considered the lowest form of protection 6-10 layer…

Is the Diablo Wiki's forum outdated? Yes, yes it is. Does it need to be changed into the shiny new look that is less versatile, but easier to use? That is the important question, the one which you will decide.

There have been a few excellent guides on meteorb (like this ) but there's sooooo much information on them. I'm condensing stuff here for easier reading.
Cold: 20 Frozen Orb, 5 prerequisites, a total of 17 Cold Mastery (including from +skill items)--at least 26 skill points. Don't bother with ice bolt as the synergy's too tiny to matter and your points are scarce. Cold armors are nice but not essential; you can get them from an orb and save some points.
Lightning: 1 Static Field, 1 Telekinesis, 1 Teleport--three skill points.
Fire: 1 Warmth, 4 prerequisites, 20 Meteor, 20 Fireball, 10-20 in Fire Mastery, rest in Fire Bolt. How much in fire mastery vs. fire bolt is dependent on how much one uses fire ball vs. meteor: fire bolt benefits fire b…

The smiter is one of the strongest Paladin builds. Like most conventional paladin builds, one key strength is its near-indestructibility thanks to high resistance potential and huge defense, with good health. The other, most essential strength is its potential to deal tremendous, consistent damage. It's one of the best uber tristram classes IMO. Its biggest weakness is its lack of crowd control and difficulty dealing with physical immunes.
1 point in smite (for PvM). If you run the calculations for maxed smite vs. 1 point of smite, then the largest damage difference (assuming you're running the best gear for damage) comes out to be about a 1,500 damage difference. If you're running most conventional gear, the difference is much small…Read more >
Background: the pages on skills in D2 are missing information post level 20. Some practical and philosophical thoughts on how to tackle the matter are in order.
Level 20 is the soft cap on any skill in D2. However this can be boosted, sometimes significantly. I need to figure out how high this cap is. On my current Javazon I have a total of +15 to skills (bringing my level on maxed skills to 35); I can probably still bump this up by at least about 6 levels in equipment alone, and then another +10 or so with skill-boosting grand charms. So we're looking at a hypothetical max of ~50 for most skills (assuming there's no hidden final cap somewhere). However, there are many problems to this.
The first one is that not every skill will have the sam…Read more >
I've never tried to play along with guides so I'm figuring out what's good for Javazons by myself. I'll leave notes down here and edit as an organic way of gathering my thoughts.
Javazons are great because they can rely completely on skills if they needed to. With enough investment in the required skills it's quite possible to do Hell Baal runs with even the crappiest gear bought from a vendor. That being said, Javazons still benefit greatly from equipment, and go from pretty great to god-tier with the right gear. Truly, the party that never ends.
Strength: If you pick your armor and weapons right, you won't need very much here. The highest I can think of is 156 for a monarch, and then you can subtract a whole bunch of points after you…Read more >
A point of opinion in Diablo II (not sure if hardcore in Diablo III is comparable). Is it ethical to save and quit a hardcore game during a moment where death is not immediate, but is inevitable? That is a scenario where you are completely surrounded with no escape route, can't get into a portal, can't kill the enemies faster than they are killing you, and are running out of healing potions - is it more honorable to die, or is quitting a valid tactic?
I died during this scenario once and when telling a coworker about how frustrating it was to know I was about to die and couldn't do anything about it, he suggested quitting. The thought had not occurred to me at the time, and it made me even more frustrated to think there had been an out I ha…Read more >
If the rumors are true, then I am really hoping that we get to fight Imperius or perhaps see a comeback of someone from the Sin War (maybe Lilith or Inarius, anyone?) as more than just a cameo.
If ihe rumors are false, then would it be a mere daydream to hope that they will release Diablo 4 by the end of this decade at least? Or am I to assume that it will follow the footsteps of Warcraft and become another MMORPG?
Other questions on my mind are what happened to Trag'Oul and can we expect that Ithereal will be murdered in some fashion due to the last line of the Prophecy of the End of Days stating his aparrent demise?Read more >
Although having some serious bugs in its data, yet it's being ethereal because what game could possibly be better than Diablo 1?

Against the Burning Hells: Diablo III's Road to Redemption with Reaper of Souls
I had the pleasure to attend a talk by Josh Mosqueira; a Lead Game Designer for the Blizzard Diablo team. He wanted to give the folks at GDC a candid look at his journey since he was hired by Blizzard in 2012.
I'll do my best to paraphrase his key points and topics. Be sure to leave any thoughts in the comments below.
The atrocious feedback from the players left the Blizzard devs in a state of depression. The office was similar to a funeral home as the team honestly did not care about the sales records, they wanted the users to love the game they had been working on for 10+ years. The servers were overwhelmed and error 37 became an internet meme. Their BETA test w…

Anyway, we are the best Diablo wiki in the world, and are one step closer to staying that way forever.
Regarding the said monsters: there is never a release. Some of them did not get screenshots. Some got screenshots, but did not receive extra info. Some are so rare that nobody even knows what type of monsters they are.

This guide is meant to address minor issues I've seen on the Diablo Wiki. I may write more of these in the future, it depends on the quality of articles I come across, I suppose.
The subject for today is the overuse of things on the wiki; going beyond that which is helpful, into the realm of redundancy and messiness.
The purpose of this is not to reprimand, but to explain the correct method of doing things. If you've been doing things wrong, don't feel ashamed, just start doing them right.

Some of them are rare (so I can't verify their affixes and take extra screenshots). Besides, I am temporarily limited in time, and could use help of someone to assist me in making pages for monsters I already know of. And yes, I too grow lazy sometimes...

To increase the replay value of the Diablo franchaise, Blizzard made a few simple changes to offer a new challenge to players. Players can accept to play the game in another tier, featuring penalties for their character while making the monsters are more difficult to defeat. The result of adventuring in these tiers not only greater challenge, but also the possibility of greater rewards. This is voluntary and players can choose to return to an easier difficulty level should they so choose. The subsequent ga…

I've been putting this off for a long time, but I've create a quote template for epigraph use. An example of internal and external sourcing can be found on the Demon Hunter and Exorcist pages respectively. Before you say anything, yes, this was ported from the SC wiki (of which I'm also an admin), and I've been putting off using it due to the different styles of the two. However, I would like to contend the following points:
- Use of a template will standardize how epigraphs appear. There's been too much inconsistancy.
- It looks better (personal preference, but I'd rather deal with a small "src" than a small no. sticking out).
- Flavor text for items and manuscript transcriptions remain as is (e.g. for items the text still remains at the bottom of…

There was a time when Diablo was one of my favorite things. Diablo 2 was the *perfect* game: it aged better than all of its contemporaries, and most of the games that came after it, too.
In the process of sequel-making, there's always this risk of failing to duplicate whatever it was that made you a success to begin with. Diablo 2 succeeded; but its successor, Diablo 3, did not.
I did my due diligence, though: I played through the game once. I endured the stupidity of the new storyline, the crass money-making scheme built into the game by its twin demons of shoddy random drop generation and "auction house." I was one of the ones who sat on day one and waited endless hours just to play this flawed, always-online game that dared lay claim to …Read more >
I noticed that in Diablo I they were everywhere: crosses on shrines, temple with crosses, crosses on graves; demonic pentagrams etc. Even the icon of the Holy Bolt spell.
In Diablo II, it was to a lesser degree, but still there, including the said icon.
In Diablo III, crosses are replaced with abstract symbols, and pentagrams with hexagrams.
