It's interesting to look at some of the enemy abilities that have been leaked. Some bosses will have enrage timers, which have caused some hullabaloo (the example given after things blew up was if the SK summoned triple the number of enemies after a few minutes, not win buttons). Then there are enemy abilities that sound like WoW stuff. Rotating beams of arcane magic, fire pools appearing under the player, champion packs who gain a new ability every time one dies, fun stuff. I want an enemy to have Flame Wreath, and for them to publish a count of how many hardcore characters have dies to it.

Since this goes live tonight at midnight, and I've read very little about the game itself, which class is the healing class?

There isn't one. The closest you'll get is Monk, and you won't be really fulfilling a healing role. It's more like you can choose for it to be a small boon.

There isn't much healing in the game. It's more "don't get hit by the enemies" and all classes are closer to a DPS class.

It's mostly just a hack n' slash dungeon crawler. You can certainly focus on multiplayer strategies if you want, but you'll be spending more time using CC abilties than healing. Monk will let you use an aura to buff your allies, though, as well as do some AoE heals (if you glyph your abilities that way). Barbarian also gets war shouts for AoE buffs or debuffs, which have some nice group synergy.

Really, any class does. Monk just has slightly higher potential at group support than the others (from what I can tell). But it's really going to come down to how you play them. You can definitely argue that spawning three zombie dogs to take heat off of other players is just as valuable as the ability to use an AoE heal, for instance.

Plus, every class gets AoE support, if I remember correctly.

Blizzard Announcement per Kotaku wrote:
We're aware that some Australian GAME customers have been left out in the cold on what should be the hottest night of the year — the launch of Diablo III. To help with this situation and get these players into the game as soon as possible, we've put the following process in place.

Australian GAME customers with a valid preorder/prepurchase receipt dated before May 15, 2012 can do the following:
1. Purchase the digital version of Diablo III from http://www.diablo3.com now or anytime before May 21, 2012.

2. Download and start playing when the servers go live!

3. Submit your GAME Australia preorder/prepurchase receipt to us before June 30, 2012.

4. Receive a credit from Blizzard, for the amount you paid in advance to GAME Australia for Diablo III. This credit will be applied to the payment method used for the digital purchase.

We'll post further details here on how to submit your GAME Australia receipt to our customer service team as soon as possible. Stay tuned, and we look forward to seeing you in the Burning Hells!

Wait, is that true? Most people stop after Normal? That doesn't make sense to me, in virtue of the type of player that would be attracted to a dungeon crawlers. Unless we're going to count the people who never even finish Normal, since the number of players who clear games is actually a really small percentage of the players who buy them.

What I'm GUESSING is that Normal, Nightmare, and Hell are like in D2--split up so that you are designed to hit cap by the time you kill Diablo in Hell mode. Inferno will be truly difficult as a result, because you stop scaling with the mobs so well.
I usually get bored of the replay right around Kurast. I've only finished nightmare once just to say I did.

From what I've played so far, to do that, they've basically skipped everything non-essential. Can't log in to check my play time, but I'm probably around 12 hours on my Demon Hunter and not in Act IV yet.

My only real complaint at the moment has been the server stability.

You bitches can add me. Spoonless#1122

Barb is fun. On normal, it's been really easy to cheese the purple and yellow mobs. I think I can basically have all my abilities proc stun, so I haven't had any issues so far.

At 19, I really like the 2-handed weapon setup I run for crawls. Cleave glyphed for extra Fury per enemy hit. Rend glyphed to restore my health. Leap glyphed for extra armor on use, and the grapple hook shooting 3 hooks out. Leap, grapple, and throwing axe really help with the stupid flies in Act 2. I tend to prefer Revenge (especially since you can glyph it to return 5 Fury and 8% of your health per enemy hit), but the gap closer of grapple is really good. Frenzy is fun, but I don't like the Fury generation.

I like the decisions you have to make between skills. Do I use Leap as a gap closer, or do I use the AoE stun ability?

I might play a Monk next, or run a S&B Barbarian. I was thinking I could play a Monk dual wielding daggers or something, but I haven't really looked into it.

Well on the bright side I didn't die on the DC, not sure how I managed that. I did die later on in Act 2 when I popped my Diamond Armor on a group that was beating on me only to be surprised when even more creatures spawned leaving me without my Diamond Armor, no where to run, and eating dirt within 2 seconds.Smiley: laugh It's been a while since I died at a game and it gave me the grin I had last night. That's probably what I like most about Diablo right now. It's not so much as the game pulling dick moves as it's more along the lines of you just messing up.

Currently I am a 25 wizard closing in on the end of Act 2.

On a side note, I hate those dang sand flies. Smiley: mad

Oh, apparently in Gameplay Options, there's an option called "Elective Mode" that allows you to set multiple abilities from the same category. For example, I could set both Leap and Ground Stomp, instead of having to decide between the two.

Are there any secrets to those Treasure Goblins? I usually hunt them down while they're trying to open portals, but the lore text suggests that the portal might lead somewhere. I'm curious if you could time it just right so that the goblin opens the portal and is then killed before using it, allowing you to see where it goes.

Don't know, but they're sneaky little bastards. Almost got killed chasing after one. He lead me into a giant pack of mobs way far away from the rest of my party. Smiley: lol

I believe that is just the lore behind them. The portals don't seem to be clickable and they break out of their summoning spell rather easy with attacks. Just keep the pressure on them so they don't escape and be rewarded with gold and shineys.

Apparently, people with authenticators are still getting hacked, in case anyone is relying on theirs for security. As of right now, it's looking like they're exploiting a server stability error, but people with mobile authenticators might want to change their passwords just to be safe. Might be an empty gesture, might not.

Definitely not a pretty situation. If this is an issue before the RMAH is introduced, I can't imagine how problematic it would be after.

I just hit 10 last night. After constant DCs and errors the first two days, I said screw it. Decided to try again last night, hit 10, then got DC'd shortly after...Blizzard needs to get their sh*t together.

Interesting, since I have yet to be asked for my authenticator, which I know is still active since I had to use it during beta and when I access my account.

I've always been of the opinion that a lot of lost WoW accounts were on Blizzard's end, and not a negligent account owner like they claim. There's no reason Diablo should be using different authentication systems than WoW, so I guess we'll see what happens.

I hit 40 barbarian about half way through Nightmare act 2 now. Im dying a decent amount to groups of rares (When I'm not solo) Some of those dual specialty rare mobs suck (Molten/Shield, Electric hit/shield, actually anything /shield gets tiring). And its nice with bosses having enough Hp where they last a while. Kinda wonder how hard Hell and Inferno mode is, My friend got to inferno mode and just beat skeleton king in act 1, he's saying he's dying A LOT.

I can see Hardcore mode + anything past normal mode being a pain.

Edited because i forgot to say I was on Nightmare.

Things are currently unclear, since as far as I can tell the issue's player speculation "this is how they must be doing it" rather than "I can prove this is possible" and that leads to a whole lot of misinformation among the things that are plausible. Blizzard of course is sitting on things and fixing it quietly until they can tell everyone it's been fixed, because otherwise all you do is paint a huge bulls-eye on the game. However, if you believe the speculation it's a flaw in D3 itself rather than the login servers, such that when you join a compromised public game they can get around authentication entirely to access your stuff. If true, that's why it can hit D3 players and not WoW ones.

The game has not asked for your authenticator because you're logging in from the same IP, and Battle.net only checks once a week unless the IP changes, though you can tell it to check every time. This is not a vulnerability issue unless you think a hacker can log in and take your stuff from your computer/IP, in which case you have much bigger problems than some lost gear since that would be either sibling asshattery, an open router, or a seriously infected puppet-PC.

I went ahead and bought this. Because I am weak and cave to peer pressure fairly easily.

I was planning on waiting until the price went down, but then I thought, "Hey, why not just go ahead and hate myself for this?"

So I did. Fishy#1649, if anyone wants to add me.

Just hit 60 monk tonight and entered Act 4 Hell. I'm sturggling to work out a build that can deal with the problems I'm having. I don't seem to be having the same problems other monks are having, but that's probably due to my build and gear. I see some people going with damage reduction skills, but aside from boss monsters, nothing that is merely hitting me can touch me. However, anything that casts (not just elites, but even normals with elite like abilities) utterly destroy me. That's probably because I have across the board 3% resistances.

Mostly, I'm just having trouble finding detailed information on mechanics.

I seem to recall that stacking some resistances was terribly important in nightmare/hell level Diablo 2. I'd be willing to bet that probably carried over to D3.

The nice thing about monks is that they get One With Everything, which sets thair resistances equal to their highest. So you can load up on a single resistance, which is found in greater amounts or on the same item as "+ to all" resistance. I've seen a lot of folks going for poison resist, don't know if there's a reason to shoot for that in particular.

Apparently, people with authenticators are still getting hacked, in case anyone is relying on theirs for security. As of right now, it's looking like they're exploiting a server stability error, but people with mobile authenticators might want to change their passwords just to be safe. Might be an empty gesture, might not.

Definitely not a pretty situation. If this is an issue before the RMAH is introduced, I can't imagine how problematic it would be after.

We've been taking the situation extremely seriously from the start, and have done everything possible to verify how and in what circumstances these compromises are occurring. Despite the claims and theories being made, we have yet to find any situations in which a person's account was not compromised through traditional means of someone else logging into their account through the use of their password. While the authenticator isn't a 100% guarantee of account security, we have yet to investigate a compromise report in which an authenticator was attached beforehand.

If your account has been hacked, please view the previous post for information on contacting our support department.


So if you DO get hacked while using an authenticator, go through the proper channels instead of posting on the forum. That way they can do something about it.

I have trouble believing that. The issue blew up because CS was insisting at first that there was no evidence of the accounts being accessed illegally. Your everyday hackings wouldn't have caused that--we're all used to them.

If they couldn't detect the hacking, there's either something seriously wrong with their detection systems, their logs, or the accounts weren't accessed simply by logging in from a remote location. Even if the hackers were using a proxy, they still would have been able to tell they were accessed irregularly.

[EDIT]
Also, it's worth noting that not all people claiming a protected account was compromised are nameless trolls on the forums. Sure, she could be lying. But I'm willing to bet she takes her professional credibility seriously enough she wouldn't risk it on such an inane story.
