Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / Re: D2R Launch Party!
« on: September 29, 2021, 01:55:43 PM »
Did a few normal Baal runs last night, got deaths sword so every day since launch I’ve had at least one grailer. Only level 34 for so but my lightning traps are getting better. Think I’ll hit 40 then move on. Using lister and his pack as a gauge of my killing speed for nm.  Haven’t tried cows yet

See if I can get some others to share their D2R progress here .. I'm about to break into the final 500 ;). I've managed to start 3 sets so far, Isenhart's Hsarus (nearly finished!) and Sigons.  Many of the little things I've forgotten what they actually are ..

Well I can say I was there at launch, got up just before 3am, and Sam was also up at 3am!  Glad I picked SP to start due to hearing about the bnet issues .. and since I haven't paid for a nintendo online pass.  I really took my time, fully watching all the cinematics, listening to all the NPC speeches. 

It took a bit getting used to the controls, and binding of actions .. still getting there as muscle memory builds with time.  Had my first death at Blood Raven, not sure if i wasn't paying attention, or a bit slow reaching for the health button. 

After a few days I have a trapsin who is level 24 in act 4, a skelly necro at the start of act 2, and a hammerdin who only really just started.   Playing on the switch is an adjustment, but its my only option for D2R for now.

Green and Gold are few and far between so far.  I'm enjoying hearing about the rest of you playing as much as I'm having fun playing myself, so keep it up!

It’s the last toggle. If any of the following drops then it’s lod. Charms, jewels, ethereals,
Runes, class spec gear. Stash for classic is old tiny size

General Discussion / Re: [Poll]Testing the water on the idea of a GO Discord
« on: September 16, 2021, 05:49:00 PM »
In 4.5 years of this iteration of the forum, only these people have posted more than 100 times.  Only 22 others posted between 11-99.    But why is that? Its not a new thing from discord, but I'm wondering how much is with changing times.  In the early 2000s there was no social media, there were no smartphones.    Back then you were sitting in front of a computer, it was a deliberate thing you chose to go to a forum, it didn't look as bad as it does on a mobile device.  There was more content there, somethings only there.  Look at the amount of stuff on Youtube or other platforms.  Back then it was all typed and some pictures.

How much is due to our existing users moving on as passions or free time changes? 
A lack of new people coming in is a factor too.

Wonder how much its "peaked" for its time.  I'm sure the newer generations aren't going to forums like we all did (multiple generations) in the mid 2000s.  I'm counting millenials, gen X, baby boomers in here.

And then we have the problem that forums are a permanent record till they aren't.
The backup is not working.  I have mentioned this to our faithful Admin, and I wait unable to do much.  I've had a look in the WayBackMachine.  Thousands of posts are available, but you can't easily find what you need.   As someone who is quite sentimental at times it makes me sad I can't go back to old stuff easily now.  The fact some of the stuff before is gone forever is a different story.  I'd love to see things from 2003 to mid 2004.

Hi Orbert

Sorry for the confusion, had no idea of the limitations to get them. 

As for the 2012 thing, I was reminded of the HORRIBLE drop rates before Loot 2.0.

Link not working.   

I think some of the key points I remember is that if you see the numbers/graphs that for rares/sets/uniques after a while diminishing returns hit hard .. so have some, but killing speed shouldn't be sacrificed for more MF after a certain point. 
Its easier to stack it on a caster than melee etc.
doesn't work for runes/racks.

Ladder won't be available at launch, they will launch, make sure its stable, ladder pops up a bit after that.  Keep in mind previous "ladder only" content is everywhere now.  So ladder is more about an e-peen leaderboard or future fresh restarts.

Diablo (now with Diablo 4 Hype) / 2021 D2 Goals
« on: September 14, 2021, 05:23:53 PM »
So, many of you might be coming back for the first time in years.  I hope you are excited for later next week if you are starting fresh, or bringing some stuff over. 

As for me, I have my "Operation Complete Normal".  Normal is both the most fun, and the most boring parts of the game.
Runewords.  After finally getting another Sur to make Beast, I'd love to complete the following this year.  Death (just need vex), Fortitude (need Lo). and stretch goals Beta CTA (need Ohm). Infinity needs two x Ber.    None of those are NEEDED by any characters, but the last 3 would buff anyone using them.

A grailer .. Its now been the longest time between grail finds.  Previously that was 1673 days from my Horizons in 2008 and Deaths Fathom in 2012.   Its currently 1996 days and counting.   Seeing Andy coming back and getting of bunch of grailers is inspiring.  Keep it up buddy!  I've had some TC87 luck myself .. just nothing new.

Another long term wish I have a new strategy for, racking a 1.07 Cranium Basher.  I was previously looking at Nilly's temple, but its loaded with monsters, the racks aren't stable and don't think it will work.  I'm looking at the Halls of Pain which I THINK only has one set of racks, but easy to find .. and not normally full of monsters.  If I do manage to get this, then I'd finally have one of everything gold and green pre 1.10.    Only downside to that is it would stop in 1.14 if i ever get a gold thundermaul that buzz of "I have a grailer .. but not sure which one!"

But the MAIN goal of all is to make it fun, and take breaks for other games at times too.
