Main Changes for Diablo 3 Patch 1.0.5 – What to Look forward to in D3?

Sup Nerds! Here are some cool changes coming to the next Diablo Patch – 1.0.5

1. INFERNAL MACHINE! – The infernal machine is a crafting recipe much like uber Tristam in Diablo 2.  You farm the parts(and the pattern once) and then craft the item.  You then can go kill the boss and he will drop a special legendary ring! Puzzle ring! I will have walk through on this soon, step by step in detail.

2. Monster Power! – Monster power now lets you choose how hard you want your monsters to be.  Monster power ZERO is actually -25% of the current monsters health, and then it scales up VERY high from 1-10.  The main thing is health increase, so a normal 30 second rare to kill in act 3 on monster power level 0, will now take lets say 5x as long on monster power 5+ (example).   In addition to the increases health and slight damage increase, once you go to monster power level 1, all monsters are ilvl 63(same as act 3).  So you can actually choose to farm any act and your result will be the same.  You also gain increased magic find and gold find the high you increase the monster power level.  You can find more information about this from the Monster Power chart that is listed on the site, if you are unable to find it just search for monster power at the top search box.

3. Legendary and Set items will have their drop rate doubled in relation to the drop rate now.

4. Inferno monsters are taking another Nerf.  I personally am happy for this, but in all reality it isn’t a huge Nerf because you can use monster power levels to make it hard than it was originally.

 

That is about all of the major changes.  I am not going to list the class changes as this isn’t a full 1.0.5 patch notes post.  If you are wondering when 1.0.5 will be released, I would put my money on it coming out this Tuesday, or the next!

Things to do in Diablo 3 When Bored of Grinding Inferno for Loot

It’s easy to forget what is fun in a game, and in this case Diablo3 .

Often times people get so caught up in progression it turns into a job, and becomes a repetitive chore to just play. So here are my suggestion to you when you are bored doing whatever it is that you are doing, which my guess would be farming Inferno, act 1, 2, and if you are lucky, 3.

1. If you are playing with your friends, or helping them level, buy some cheap legendaries, or good/bad yellows, and drop them on the ground when you kill a boss or elite champion pack. Keep doing this and they will probably start thinking they are the luckiest person in the world.

2.  Play Hardcore mode! Hardcore mode in Diablo 3 is almost a different game, sorta. It adds more challenge, a purpose, there is no real money auction house, so the gold auction house is better and more stable, plus gold is worth more.

3. Farm for Achievements!  This is probably one of the best things to do in my nerdy opinion.  There are tons of fun things to conquer if you are going for achievement points.  It will give new life to the game, at least until you finish all the easy/semi easy ones.  This is the only thing that kept me playing World of Warcraft in my later days.

4. Make/LVL a new character to 60.

5. Try funny builds

6. If you are rich, buy a cheap gear set, lets say 500k or 1million max, and see how far you can progress in inferno with it

Best Farming Spot in Act 1 Inferno Diablo 3

I have been testing different runs and the most efficient groups of elites to kill for the highest drop rate of rares in inferno act 1, and this is what I have come up with.

I stick to this run like Velcro because it is so consistent with the rare and blue mob spawns.

Waypoint 1 -

Northern Highlands -> run west to the border and north and south… look for the watch tower. If the watchtower doesn’t spawn, remake the game. If it doesn’t spawn elites, remake the game (sometimes it glitches out). There’s 2-5 packs here. TP after clearing the watchtower.

Waypoint 2 -

Cathedral Gardens Level 3 -> always an elite pack here. You sometime have to run backwards. TP after killing him.

Waypoint 3 -

Cemetery -> clear the first elite out of every dungeon. JUST THE FIRST. After the first one, TP back and take the way-point again… it’s not worth looking for a non-guaranteed elite.

Waypoint 4 -

Leoric’s Manor -> run backwards, there’s a 25% or so chance there’s an elite IN the manor, but there’s a guaranteed elite in Leoric’s Manor Courtyard.

Waypoint 5 -

Festering Woods -> guaranteed 1 outside, and 2 more guaranteed in each of the two dungeons, and there’s a chance for the king of the hill event to spawn 1.

Then you can do the Warden / Butcher if you want ( I would )

Hope this can help you guys get some millions, its not easy to find the best place to farm in inferno act 1!

How to Farm Inferno Act 2 as a Barbarian – The Crop Duster Build

So there are tons of nerd out there screaming “wah wah wah, inferno is too hard for us barbarians, where’s the love blizz?!”

Well I am a barbarian, and while I don’t think they are too underpowered, I do think they could use a few tweaks for Inferno.

BUT! I have discovered a build utilizing sprint with the tornado rune which actually works very well for Inferno magic finding / farming in Act 2.

Here is a video of a barb with only “OK” gear, not the best, farming act 2 fast and easily, with the crop duster build.

The build is – http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WfgUki!ZYf!cZaZca

It is kind of a Lawlz build, but if it works and your getting the phat loots, then whatever bro!

I dub this build – the Barbarian Crop Duster Inferno Farming Build

Enjoy fellow nerds!

The Best Diablo 3 Magic Find Guide

Hey Friends of The Little, Diablo 3 Pwning, Nerd!

 

I’m guessing you came here to learn how to magic find in the most proficient way, so, let TLN assist you!

 

If you are trying to find The Best Diablo 3 Magic Find Guide, Your at the right place…

 

I’m about to pwn you noobs up with some hard facts about magic finding!

1. Always kill everything!

2. Don’t solo kill everything, kite em, group em, aoe em!

3. Harder the difficulty the better, duh!

4. If you see a good chest, DONT OPEN IT! Clear the area, then put on max magic find gear, with the max stacks from boss kills, then open it! Cha-Ching! (Remember if you reset your skills your magic find boss stacks reset) If you find a chest in Inferno, you can spam general chat, or a forum, and make people pay 10-25k just to join in and collect on loots from it.  Make sure they have some Magic find though as it gets averaged out between the group.  (if you have 200 magic find, and someone joins with 0, it drops to 100% magic find)

5.  Places that you have to go out of your way for, like hidden caverns, will have the most rare yellow spawns, which are great for magic finding!

6. Magic find gear isn’t everything, but try to get enough magic find to get good items in hell/inferno while still maintaining adequate stats to stay healthy, and alive.

7. Use the Auction house! Don’t pay crazy prices, set a gold maximum and get the gearz! You would be surprised how cheap some rare items, and even legendaries are.

That’s all the tips I have, but if you want more detailed information on spots, builds, and percentages of what drops where, so you can get the most out of your time, please check out The Best Diablo 3 Magic Find Guide!  I have receive a review copy from T-DUB himself and out of the other guides I have reviewed I honestly rate this one the best, and it’s the most affordable.

A great thing about purchasing his guide is that it’s worry free, 60 days and you can request a refund very simply.

You definitely don’t need a gold guide, but if you are looking to become rich, and/or sell on the Real Money Auction House, you will want to get one.

If you don’t want to spend any money, check back often as I am always doing research and posting great methods I come across them!

Hope this help my fellow little nerds out, please comment if you have any questions!

Diablo 3: New Tristram

The dark and foul place that once caged Deckard Cain prisoner is making its return for Diablo 3!

 

“New Tristram is a town in central Khanduras which was built near the ruins of Old Tristram. It was founded by merchants in an unknown year after the events of Diablo II to capitalize on the popularity of the legends and folklore of the Cathedral of Old Tristram. People slowly settled down and built a town. After the Cathedral was plundered, people lost interest and the town fell into decline.”

Diablo 3 New Tristam

Tristram Lore

We have all heard the tales associated with Tristram. The very mention of its name brings to mind images of undead monstrosities, demonic possession, “King Leoric” monarchy driven to lunacy, and, of course, the greatest legend of all – the Lord of Terror unleashed. Although many now claim that a peculiar mold upon the bread or perhaps a fouling of the water drove the populace mad with visions, I have seen too much in my varied travels to dismiss such stories out of hand. It is within this context, then, that I have to say my journey to what is now called “New Tristram” was somewhat of a disappointment. New Tristram has been in existence for several years, though the exact date of its founding is unclear. Originally simply a collection of merchants looking to profit on adventurers and travelers drawn by legends of riches within the old cathedral, it slowly set down roots and became an established town. As soon as the cathedral was looted bare, however, the adventurers and travelers stopped coming, and New Tristram found itself in decline. The town is now comprised mostly of depressing shacks; the inn is the only building that looks even the least bit habitable. Before I took my leave of this dreary place, I was cornered by Deckard Cain an eccentric old man who seemed to have an endless supply of anecdotes and folksy wisdom to impart. He went on about there still being much of value deep within the cathedral in the form of tomes of ancient origin and wisdom. I will have to take his word for it, for I must admit that while I did explore the burnt remains of the “old” Tristram, I lacked the intestinal fortitude to do much more than take a few hesitating steps within that infamous cathedral of legend.

Diablo 3 – Five Classes Extraordinary

It is already well known that Diablo 3 has five confirmed classes, but most site’s don’t break down the classes too well, and neither do we.

Well, I don’t have beta and I haven’t played it once, but here is my researched opinion on the subject at hand which would be..

What is the best class for Diablo 3 at launch?

Just kidding.

The 5 Diablo III Classes Are…

Barbarian

He is a brute force beast powerhouse of destructive rage induced with acid dripping hate.

He will slaughter with his blades anything that comes into his way, including his friends.

You are lucky there is no friendly fire in D3 cause you would be out bro.

Witch Doctor

It doesn’t matter if you are into fixing hurt legs and writing prescriptions, or witch craft and sorcery!

If you chose to play as the Witch Doctor in D3, be prepared to be overpowered,

until stricken down by the heaven’s light which would be the most epic class not in the game, the paladin.

Wizard

A wizard controls the storms, twists the skies, and shreds the hearts out of the evil enemy demons in diablo 3.

If you choose a wizard you will be glad you did because the wizard class has some of the best and most epic abilitys in the game.

No one can stare into the face of the most epic wizards in the land, don’t you wish that was you?

Monk

A holy monk, protects and serves his people, with mighty fists, clenched tight like a fist of a thief

He fights with honor and dignity, restore clarity and harmonious peace to d3.

He will yield the holy light and be a warrior of the light, in speed and martial arts, too ez pz bro.

Demon Hunter

A demon hunter, this foul beast of a human figurement, he preys upon demons, eatin their souls into eternal damnation in his rear.

He rolls and dashes in all directions, not one but two directives, he shoots and pew pews, and also throws and goes boom boom

The mighty hunter of the demons, shall be a class for the ranged lovers, like myself, just keep on rollin’ baby, you know what pew pew time it is.
