I stopped playing again. For a while I was getting 1-2 legendary drops every run, my last 4 runs netted me 1 legendary so I shelved it again. I'll probably try out Path of Exile soon, I still also need to beat Torchlight 1.

I still play every once in a while. I got the StarCraft 2 expansion with my auction house funds. I'll keep playing to save up for Diablo 2 + Exp and StarCraft + Exp. I still enjoy Diablo 3, but in short bursts.

Hmm, maybe ill give it a go or two with new patch - there's a few things that look promising for me.

Shock pulse increase helps, as well as "Critical Mass now affects the cooldowns of Archon: Teleport and Archon: Slow Time while in Archon Form"

Oh, and the reflects dmg change is pretty snazzy too for my DPS wiz.

D3 announced for PS3/4. I've been wanting a controller support for D3 but I doubt they're gonna bring the UI/controller stuff from the consoles to PC.

I've decided to finish-out my Witch Doctor now that enough changes have been implemented to make them not completely suck and also because Jay has moved on and it looks like things are headed in a positive direction in regards to itemization. (also "Fuck that loser.")

A ways out and strategically avoiding the official forums (as everyone should for all Blizzard games) it's actually quite nice to play while listening to podcasts.

Booo... even though it would be fun to come back I'm having way too much fun playing a variety of games vs just Diablo 3.

It will be interesting to hear more details about the PS3/4 release of D3 and if you can tie it to the same account. I mean I'd prefer to play it on the PC BUT my PC is also garbage too so the graphics are all turned down.. I'm sure having a console release might throw some new life into the game and have new wave of interest from people who would normally not play it on PC..

Yea, so if you try to sell gold you are competing with everyone else to sell at same exact price. When i sold the one thing for 500 mil gold, i could only get rid of like 75 of it. Then just blew the rest on some upgrades. (then haven't really used them by playing...)

Yeah that is a very good point. Now I don't feel so bad not playing...

How is the new patch? Does it bring any new life to the game or does it still feel like a grind? Some of the new items you can get seem pretty cool but I wonder how hard it would be to make them in hardcore....

Off topic: Since I stopped D3 I've played and finished off some of my backlog. Racked up a few platinums along the way too.... The Walking Dead, Far Cry 3, Dead Space 3, Spec Ops: The Line.... also played & beat Ni No Kuni, Metal Gear Rising, & Tomb Raider.

Haven't really messed around too much with the crafting - i tried a little bit but seemed the same as before....just get a lot of junk and wasted gold.

@Dwarfman
I've been playing the new patch a lot.

Essentially the new crafting system is D3's version of 'gambling'. Only you can make them specific to whatever class you're playing, which is nice. Takes tons of rolls to get an upgrade though.

D3 on the PS3/PS4 will be completely separate from the PC version, unfortunately. It's like a ladder reset, in essence :)

Also, like you, I racked up a ton of Plats, mainly from the R&C Collection & Okami HD & Devil May Cry 1.

Darksiders 2 on Apocalyptic can be infuriating sometimes though so I took a break from that and here I am.

@Pookymeister

The crafting system is worth trying, most of the people I've played with that have ridiculous gear have gotten it from crafting. Seriously, like, 300 int 200 vit 80 all resists shoulders aren't unheard of.

New patch came out with some gold dupe method, some people got hundreds of billions of gold. Gem prices skyrocketed because everyone was flipping Radiant Star Emeralds and theyre < $1 on RMAH. I wound up selling all my gems that I had and I've got about 977 million atm.

UPDATES:

> 12:00 a.m. PDT: At this time (and after careful consideration), we've decided to not move forward with rolling back the servers. We feel that this is the best course of action given the nature of the dupe, how relatively few players used it, and the fact that its effects were fairly limited within the region. We've been able to successfully identify players who duplicated gold by using this specific bug, and are focusing on these accounts to make corrections. While this is a time-consuming and very detailed process, we believe it's the most appropriate choice given the circumstances. We know that some of you may disagree, but we feel that performing a full roll back would impact the community in an even greater way, as it would require significant downtime as well as revert the progress legitimate players have made since patch 1.0.8 was released this morning.

> 10:40 p.m. PDT: Maintenance has concluded, and the fix has been implemented. Once we’ve been able to test this fix and verify that it works correctly, we'll then mark the gold and real-money auction house live.

> 10:35 p.m. PDT: To assist our teams with their review process, we have disabled all gold trades in the Americas region until further notice. Players can still trade items, but trades that involve any sum of gold currency cannot be completed.

> 10:15 p.m. PDT: We believe we’ve found a fix for the gold duplication bug and will be deploying it shortly to all regions. In order to implement this fix, we'll be bringing Diablo III into maintenance. We anticipate this maintenance will last for approximately 1 hour, lasting until approximately 11:30 p.m. PDT.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hey everyone,

As you may have already seen in the Breaking News window (or discovered while trying to load up the Auction House once logged in), we've brought both the gold and real-money Auction Houses offline for maintenance. After the release of Patch 1.0.8 this morning, we found that some players were exploiting a bug that enabled them to duplicate gold through the Auction House. We're working on fixing the bug right now, and bringing the Auction Houses offline helps us troubleshoot in a more stable environment while preventing further exploiting.

Q. When will the Auction House be available?
We don’t have an ETA just yet. Our priority at the moment is (of course) to fix the bug and make sure it can’t happen again. We know this is an inconvenience for some of our players, so we’ll be providing updates in this thread as soon as we have any details to share.

Q. Will there be a rollback?
Our priority is to fix any issues with the game client first—that's what we're working on right now. After we've addressed the situation, we'll need to determine whether or not a rollback is appropriate. We know this is an important issue for all of our players, so we’ll be sure keep you informed of what's happening and will provide any updates in this thread, as well.

Q. Will players be banned for using this dupe?
We're currently in the process of reviewing the accounts involved and taking appropriate actions, including temporary locks, suspensions, and/or bans. Our exploitation policy for Diablo III can be found here, which should give you an overview of the kinds of activities that are and aren’t cool within the game.

Q. How will this affect other regions and patching up to 1.0.8?
This will not affect the patch maintenance schedules for Europe or Asia. As we believe we've been able to fix the dupe, patch 1.0.8 will still be released in both of these regions as normal. However, please note that we have temporarily reverted the stack size for gold on the real-money Auction House from 10,000,000 to 1,000,000. There's an active bug that's preventing gold stack sizes from displaying correctly, so we've reversed that one change until we can fix it. (This will also be the case for the Americas once the Auction House is marked live.)

Thank you for all of your reports, and for your patience. In the meantime, to help streamline communication, we're going to be locking and redirecting posts to this location.

So Hari, would it be worth my while to log on and sell my gems at the inflated rate right now or is that done? I'm all for exploits and sticking it to blizz, so I'd actually log in to make some gold just for the hell of it lol.

Actually, I don't even know if I had any gems left over so w/e. Grats on the near billionaire status though! :lol:
