It has really been sometime since the patch 1.0.8 was released. In this patch, players adjusted their skill combinations to experience different builds. Some turn to the other classes to try different options. While, we could not help thinking when the new update could be available, what surprises will this new update bring to us.
Some players come up with their ideas, let’s see what are their expectations.
It is time to do some change to the Demon Hunter. There are five classes in game in total. Even through we know it is hard to keep the balance, but it is so unfair for the Demon Hunter. Comparing to the other classes, this class has little advantage at all. Both in the PVE and PVP, this class is not welcome. Players who have leveled all five classes up to paragon level 100 said that, he spent the longest time to finish the progress for the Demon Hunter. Since the Blizzard can make the Witch Doctor be so hot for the firebat skill, they can definitely change the status of the DH by doing some suggestions.
Make the public game more considerate. Many players have been complaining that when they enter into a public game after long waiting, they have no idea whether the game has just get started or half of the quest has been finished. If Blizzard can make some changes to make the game more considerate, that they can get the information about the game the first second they enter into the public game, or there are several limitations to help match better, they would be more willing to enjoy the public game.
Less but better drops in game. Most players like the increase of the monsters’ density in patch 1.0.8. They feel it is more exciting and challenging to play. The feeling of shuttle back and forth among the monsters is awesome. However, the abundant of drops become one of the most annoy things. There are so many white gears on the ground that you may not want to even have a look at. But you may pick them up by mistake which may waste your time. Since they are useless, and seldom will be picked up by players, why don’t make the drops less and better. It would be more attracting since players may begin to think whether the loots can be used by them. The drops in game can be valuable again.
Some players like to play the game with fast pace, so they would always put more attention on getting high DPS and taking risks. While some players like to play the game with more stable status. They will take the challenge when they have made plenty of preparation. I am the slow one, so, I prefer to consider the DPS and defensive at the same time. Today, I would like to recommend you a build for the Monk in which you can have good performance both with attack and defense.
Firstly, I would like to introduce the skills combinations. The details about the runes and skills are listed in the below picture.
My main attack skills: Fist of Thunder + Sweeping Wind + Crippling Wave. The Fist of Thunder can attack the enemies with really high speed, as a result, it can help generate the spirit much faster than the other skills. The Sweeping Wind can produce vortrex to cause damages to the surrrounding enemies. As this skill is refreshed everytime you attack an enemy nearby you. So, when you are dealing with crowds of foes, you can keep using this skill without cooldown. Crippling Wave can not only bring you spirit, but also cause great damages to the monsters. The following picture is how I use the Sweeping Wind to deal with the surrounding enemies.
My defensive skills: Mantra of Evasion + Breath of Heaven + Serenity. Since I do not have so much attack skills, it is very important to decrease the damages I have to suffer and increase my defensive ability. The Mantra of Evasion fan help me dodge the attacks better. The Breath of Heavens can heal my life by large degree. While the Serenity can absorb the damages I have to suffer. To make sure that my life is better protected, my passive skills are Near Death Experience and Pacifism.
The Advantage of this build. As I have plenty of skills to ensure that my life is safe, I can rush into the crowds of monsters or fly them to get them together to cause AOE attack. Actually, to this build, the more enemies there are aound you, the safer you will be, as it can not only bring you enough spirit to cause attacks.
The disadvantage of this build. Just like what we have said, this build is more suitable for dealing with crowds of foes. When you are fighting with single or several elites only, you may need to spend much longer time and suffer the problem of shortage of spirits. As the DPS in this build is much lower than the other build, the pace of the battle is slow down by some degree. Please just be patient, as you are getting closer ans closer to the victory.
A little about me: Iâ€™m something of a pro gamer. Any genre of game Iâ€™ve spent my life completely dominating. I have a 4:1 kill death ratio or better on every call of duty. I am 2100 elo on League of Legends (thatâ€™s top 5% in the world). Iâ€™m in the platinum league of Starcraft II. The list goes on and on.
When I picked up Diablo 3, I expected to quickly assert my dominance over it as well. Unfortunately, things did not go as I planned.
Diablo 3 is a very difficult and unforgiving game. I could progress through it just fine, but I never seemed to have enough gold to do everything Iâ€™d like to. I wasted countless hours crawling the web, searching for better methods to bring in more gold.
I ultimately stumbled upon the blog of Daniel Chan, which changed my Diablo 3 life.
Daniel Chan is Diablo 3â€™s first gold billionaire, and his methods have drastically increased my gold income per hour. With his expert guidance, Iâ€™m back to being the pro Iâ€™m used to being.
Iâ€™ve got all my friends jealous and begging for advice again. I think Iâ€™ll wait a little while longer before I turn them on to Daniel Chanâ€™s amazing guide. I want to make sure I get a pretty big head start so I can stay ahead of them, haha.
Your build for the Barbarian class is highly determined by the quests you can undertake. Hacking and slashing your way in the game just doesnâ€™t work anymore as it did for Diablo 2.
For starters, do not grind the same monsters or do boss runs over and over again. It produces diminishing returns and Blizzard has set the game up in such a way that the rewards look better if something is done differently. Venturing out is a very good option.
Here is a quick leveling method showing getting a bar of exp at paragon level 31 in less than 4 minutes. At 50mil a level, you could easily level 2 or more times and hourâ€¦
A Barbarian is a class that excels when they are in a team. Because most of their attacks are melee, they function well as a tank but are better off with characters to back them up with range attacks and provide support. If you are a low level barbarian, make sure you pair up with someone that provides a lot of healing spells and this will keep your game going longer and stronger.
One of the biggest temptations of a barbarian is to grind through the same pack of mobs over and over again. This might work well in the previous game, but the way the game is setup requires you to diversify your strategy rather than attack the same boss over and over again.
A barbarian must not sit still. Its primary skill is called fury which increases as they deal damage and take damage. Do not wait for your allies to deal the damage as this will hamper your ability to level up. The fury ability also unleashes a huge range of skills that will propel the Barbarianâ€™s damage as well.
Last but not least it is very important to experiment with rune stones. Rune stones diversify the play of the Barbarian greatly and donâ€™t be afraid to try out new things as the damage dealt and mobility can be greatly affected.
