Diablo is back! Who is in?

I'm still waiting for my copy :(

My copy popped up in the post this morning (who knew tesco would get the first copy in) but other peeps in the office seem to be having amazon problems so we may not get a d3 night in this week.

Anyone interested in getting together and protecting my witch doctor from all the nasties?

I will be playing a Monk around 12:30pm Central Time (I'm from the US) if anyone else would like to join me, seeing as you have to play it online anyways why not make new friends right! My battletag is KratosZero#1844 just mention RPS, I might have it set to private just so if we have quiet a few RPS players I can make sure its just us.

For now playing alone, at least I want to beat the game on Normal alone, then I will be happy to play with you guys.

Barbarian is my first choice and I am having a blast. 12 years was worth the wait, even with the hated always online DRM.

I'll be playing socially at the weekend most likely, based in Ireland. If anyone wants to start a virgin character for some casual clicking give me a shout. I'll likely be rocking a Barb or Witch Doctor.

Noob question: do I need a headset etc.? I only played D2 solo so not sure of the netiquette these days.

Dammit, ok I'll update this post with battle tag later.

I want to get it but I'm a bit worried about my PC; does anyone have a spare guest pass? I've been incredibly tempted to buy it, but it would be much smarter to make sure it runs decent first I suppose.

My tag is Incariol#2920; I'm currently only playing on the EU server. Just mention that you're from RPS if you add me.

By the way, could you maybe add a list of all the tags that have been posted so far to the OP, bonkers?

I would love to be more social in my pc gaming starting with Diablo 3! My battletag is ScoutAbout#1446. I'm in the U.S., eastern time zone. Feel free to send a friend request (or whatever it is called on battle.net). Just make sure and put something about RPS in the message so I don't think it is some random request and decline. I should say upfront that I am pretty new to PC gaming (I've played consoles for years) so I feel I pretty much suck at all PC games, but I enjoy doing it.

On a related note, I don't have a PC headset but I am starting to look. I'm used to the essentially plug and play of the Xbox. How difficult will it be to get this working with my PC? Will it be fairly obvious once I have the headset? Do I need some special software or something. It would be nice to play coop and actually be able to have a conversation. My fairly new PC has fast become my preferred way of gaming so I think it's time to pull something together.

New to the forums, but always up for a good time! Haven't tried any multiplayer yet, but I will here in the near future and I'd love to do so with the intelligent, lively folks of RPS. You'll find me under ri2armbears#1258, and I'm in the U.S. central time zone. Just let me know you're from RPS if you'd be so kind :). Rocking the wizard for now!

I'm up for either. I can keep going with my currently level 2 witch doctor (I got up early before work this morning just to roll my character and play for 20 mins. or so) or I can roll a character just to do multiplayer (probably a wizard or demon hunter).

After baffling mishaps related to server selection; thinking the errors are due to queues and maintenance while in fact they were due to Battle.net sneakily switching me from US to EU server; leading me to submit a ticket because I thought I lost the character I was able to play 47 whole minutes with on launch day; after having my infinitely more savvy younger brother check my account and find my missing hero; after deciding I'd have to eat my mistakes and start over: I am back! (baby).

Oh that's right you have no idea who I is because I registered for the forum just to throw my tag on the pile:

I've had some 'ok' public games, but it doesn't seem to want to allow more than 2 players for some daft reason and they are never very talkative.

My BattleTag is Iconoclast#1110 and I'm playing on EU servers. Got a witch doctor in Act II, chapter 7 I think. Will probably roll another class soon too if anyone is up for a fresh-ish start.

Howdy! Was searching for this thread all morning.

My battletag is luckystriker#1622. I love the game, and I like taking it slow through unexplored territory (ie I fucking explore until I see the whole map). If that's to your taste, add me as a friend!

edit: I have a SEA version of the game, but I'm fine playing on NA servers as SEA and ANZAC are part of the Americas region (source: http://www.diablowiki.net/Global_Play_FAQ).

Hello,

Been a stalker on RPS for a while now but would love to get involved with some intermittent Diablo 3 co-op. Play the Americas server but don't think I'll mind starting a new character in a different region. Am currently a low level monk and wizard in SP. Will happily start a new character in a different class. Would love to join any patient, intelligent RPSers. Tag is Shandar#1586.

Blessings and good will to all.

I feel very left behind. Haven't been able to log much time yet. Have only brough each character as far as the Skeleton King and see everyone else burning off into the distance (when the servers are up).

I would definitely be up for a 'virgin' character run with particular groups if people are up for it further down the line.

Jaxvor
21-05-2012, 02:48 PM
Due to Sunday's outage I haven't covered much ground, I've just completed the Skeleton King quest and am on the next one. I'm also happy to go with a co-op run from the beginning, Skeletor.

In fact, shall we arrange a particular night for co-op campaigning? A run through from beginning to end with the same characters?

That sounds like a lot of fun, but I don't want to get in anyone's way so as long as we keep those characters casual I'm 100% up for this! I just don't want to hold people up or anything. I'll be able to sink proper time this weekend and probably a few hours during the evenings this week.

Ok so Jaxvor I will be Monk, Barb or Witch Doctor whatever suits the group. Anyone else interested for jumping in for co-op characters whenever we are concurrently online? If you have a particular evening in mind Jaxvor let me know.

Ok guys that play this, I'm not playing but just noticed a lot of people have been reporting hacks on their accounts so watch out for this guys. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hcEhuSyMhPU&feature=g-all-u this is a video of one guy explaining the problem, but a lot of journalists are starting to report it, an exploit with session ID rather than your actual password. Just be aware that this is a major issue with the game.

Jaxvor
22-05-2012, 10:06 AM
Wandering around various forums, it seems that the problem is public games being hacked. So for the moment, multiplayer should only be done with friends in private sessions, I guess.

Hey, new to the forum as of now.

Anyone up for rolling a new Diablo 3 character today? I'm free all day, so send me a pm or reply here if you wanna join me, got skype for voice chat but if there is a program you prefer then just say. I'll be rolling Monk, if that aids others choices.

DWZippy
22-05-2012, 02:26 PM
Act 3 is insanely difficult, as it turns out. Massive jump upwards in difficulty.

Anyway, just repeating my battletag - I've got lots of characters between 10-20 that need friends, and I still want to roll up that wizard.

DWZippy#2570

I also have the capacity to create gear upto level 30, and will sell it at reasonable prices to all RPS'ers. Standard fee depends on the level of the item, but it's usually 1.5k for a level 20 rare.

Skeletor68
22-05-2012, 04:27 PM
Jaxvor, WoundedBum and CthulWho. I have installed Mumble but have never used this before and need to work out if the microphone in my laptop is up to the task. If anyone is around for a few minutes before we start maybe you could let me test it out?

Lookin forward to slaying demons together later (obligatory: and in the game).

Had an exceedingly fun time myself! I might leave it until the weekend if you guys are happy with working on your other characters for the moment. Work tends to get in the way of dedicating time during the week.

You will be happy to know that I have ordered a headset (probably won't arrive for a week or so though). I think my audio was a little unclear yesterday, and as soothingly pleasant as your accents are my girlfriend will be happier without the disembodied voices around the house.

Oh and thanks for the help getting set up on Mumble Jaxvor, much appreciated. Looking forward to breaching Leoric's passage again soon!

Jaxvor
23-05-2012, 11:57 AM
No problem Skeletor, your chat was a bit quiet but audible enough (as long as it wasn't while hordes of things were exploding!). I'm still quite new to Mumble myself which is why I accidentally hijacked the existing Diablo channel without creating my own channel!

Weekend is fine for me, I'm skint so I'll probably be staying in for most of it (last weekend before payday). Leoric's passage will no doubt be considerably widened by the repeated entry of large groups of adventurers.

I'm kind of annoyed about the slot limit. Will they be expanding that eventually? I mean they have achievements like 'take two Witch Doctor's to level 60' and only slots for 9?! Very strange. I deleted a monk I had around level 10 because I was starting one fresh for co-op anyway. I'll be making a frenzy, 2 hand and shield barbarian so it's a little annoying!

A friend of mine has also a lot characters and completed the game twice already, on normal and nightmare, And I am still on my first character at level 10 because I have other things on my mind, but still can't stand if one of my friends completes something first.

I really don't have much fun playing this game by myself, I think it'd be magnitudes more fun with others, so I'm gonna wait until I find some people. I'm surprised how tough it is to find others after a little over a week since the game came out... I guess most people are either going to a) buy the game immediately and play the shit out of it, or b) wait several weeks/months when they have more time or money or whatever... so I'm kind of in the middle somewhere.

Tried the matchmaking function but only joined people who don't talk at all, so that wasn't too great.

Ravelle

I'm always up for some freelance co-op Sidian, Coccyx - I don't really do dedicated co-op with people, because my time is precious, and I hate feeling I've got an obligation to play when I'd rather be doing something else.

Sidian
25-05-2012, 06:33 PM
I understand. We'll work something out.

I'll be up for starting a fresh game with you Coccyx, hopefully we can get at least one more with us or something. It's a shame you've already been through it once before though. Sent you a friend request.

Sorry guys, was looking to get stuck in this week, but seems real life has snuck up on me unawares so I'm in the process of moving house and job, all in the next week or two...

Steam is being ridiculous at the moment. They seem to have removed the simple and logical way to add friends by, you know, clicking 'add friend' and putting in their username. Now, you have to search for them. I do this, and it says 'This feature is not available at this time.' Brilliant. Here's my steam profile (http://steamcommunity.com/id/Backseatsman). Also, my Battletag is Sidian#6600.

DWZippy
28-05-2012, 12:37 PM
It's totally fine. Use it for whatever - People just kind of swing by to see if there's a game they can get behind, ect ect. Most the ARPS guys donate, myself included -and it's really a more the merrier sort of thing. If you do find yourself using the server heavily, you can [but feel no obligation] - donate to the ARPS Golden Yacht by sending a PM to Nullkigan

Thanks for the info Darkwingstalker. This is really the first time I've consistently played any multiplayer in a game (used to be a loner with a bad connection) so apologies for not knowing the protocol. I'll fire something on if we end up doing this on a regular basis.

Hey Jaxvor, I'll also be watching the football, and I'll also be looking after some family for the next few weeks (health reasons).

Hey guys.

I started playing in HC with a friend of mine but he got killed at lvl 16 due to a f***g disconnection.

Any tips on how to level his new character faster so that we can continue our adventure ? how much level difference can we have so that he still gets a good amount of xp ? 5, 10 ?

Skeletor68
18-07-2012, 09:32 AM
Um, WoundedBum, Jaxvor? Are you dudes out of this game for now? I haven't played a huge amount since, just pick up and play every now and then if I'm downloading something on Steam.

If you guys are interested in playing this weekend, let me know. Otherwise we can call it a day. I'm a bit disappointed with it as someone who loved D2 to be honest so no hard feelings if you can't be arsed anymore! PM me your Steam IDs if you feel like it though.

Each season you can make seasonal characters which are aside from your egular characters. they have their own loot and gold stores shared among them, so a total sgregation from regular charcters. but it means you can earn better loot, and cosmetic things at the end of the season, like character frames.

At the end of a season these charcters are converetd into regular ones, and any cash and stash they had gets added to the regular pool

Cephas

Yup. You can only get stuff from the instance you're in though. And I don't know if you can rift/a bounty at the same time

You can have a group that's split between doing bounties and rifts at the same time. You'll share the experience from finishing the events, but you won't get experience from party members killing enemies unless you're in the same area as them. You'll get caches from finishing bounties too, even if you're in a rift.

What you'll see people do a lot of for farming bounties is to split up and do one bounty each in the active Bonus act. That way you finish them faster overall and still get the same amount of caches.

trjp
20-02-2016, 11:21 AM
That's what they call split farming I guess?

I've no idea what the protocol on joining groups is and my headset is knackered so I'm 'listen only' until I get 20 together - is just joining an open game a good idea or is gear difference likely to be a pain?

Joining someone's game ups the difficulty or just joining the actual instance they're in??

Unless you have been invited to be boosted, don't join if you are just going to leech. For me at least that's about the only thing that matters in public games. Other than idiots doing the wrong bounties and failing the bonus, it's a lot more effective in terms of xp and loot than going solo.

Yes.

I'd like to ask a favour - not sure if this is even possible but I've hit a wall on my last Set Dungeon (Monk - Uliana Set)

I'm not going for Mastery - just completion - but this one is such a pain-in-the-ass (and they were almost all pains in the ass but this one takes the biscuit!) that I need a boost and there are 2 possibilities.

1 - I need an Askaranth Pendant (Fire Damage into Heals) - they are rare so I could gamble/upgrade for one but I don't hold much hope so does anyone have one I could leech/borrow/blag??

2 - I reckon we could "cheese it" - if someone would be willing to clear the dungeon (not hard, TX gear would do it easily) whilst I hang-back out of harms way (completion would be killing around 190 enemies, taking no fire damage and not dying which I reckon could be done from the doorway!).

Cheeky I know but I thought I'd ask - if anyone reads this and seems me online, I'm up for that anytime really...

Bit of a longshot but I notice a few people playing Season 6 and wondered if anyone fancied a shot at the Conquests?

The obvious ones for some group fun-and-games are the 2 min TX Rift and the Kill the Bosses in 20 mins ones - the "300 enemies in a cursed chest" one is just a pain-in-the-ass to farm for perhaps?

The 2 min rift just requires 3/4 players who can kill easily on TX (and who are wearing Nemesis Bracers perhaps) and a rift which is "one floor" (one of the non-dungeon rifts)

The Boss Rush just requires a BIT of planning so that 1/2 players are pathing to each boss whilst the others kill the last one - they then port over - pathfinder goes to next boss whilst they kill that one - and so on??

Crux
14-05-2016, 06:25 PM
2 minute rifts were pretty easy to do last season with Norvald's bombardment or something similar. My spin2win farmbarb isn't quite geared enough for T10 yet, but I'm up for doing some conquests at some point.

trjp
15-05-2016, 11:46 PM
Worth noting that UNLIKE Grifts, the 2 mins is "opening the portal" to "handing-in-to-Orek" - so loading times matter!!

I've done 2min-odd rifts upto T8ish and I have a Farm-spec UE Multishot build with tonnes of movement speed (which can take Nemesis Bracers OK for TX) but I still think <2Mins for a Tx might require 2-3 people (one of whom heads back to town early to get a quicker handin!?)

I don't get HC with D3 - it's a game which relishes killing you unfairly, whether that be a lagspike or a combo of affixes (jailer and arcane beam or orbs and walls) so it's just the ever-present threat of being screwed?

Aren't the loot tables or drop percentages better in HC than on normal? I could've made that up but that was always my understanding of why people would play on HC.

I've a very solid connection to the D3 servers so lag spikes have never been an issue for me and since they got rid of some of the more terrible affix combos I've never had much problem with dying unless I'm not paying attention but I've still zero interest in HC characters.

Procrastination Giant
23-05-2016, 08:32 PM
Nah, the loot tables/droprates are completely identical and at best you can get a couple of hc exclusive achievements and banner thingies. Playing HC in these games in general is much more about making the journey/the moment-to-moment gameplay more exciting instead of playing for increased rewards or long term goals (or at least that's the mindset of somewhat more mature HC players). In D3 Hc is mostly an afterthought though and neither the game's mechanical nor its technical side really support that playstyle well, and while it has improved quite a bit since release it's still quite obvious that the developers don't really consider it to be more than a fun little gimmick.

The only current ARPG that does hardcore really (or "reasonably") well is Path of Exile.
