    Hardcore Grouping

    I am working on an HC monk, but he is a bit of a glass cannon. At Torment V he still dies once in a while (saved by Near Death Experience) but can kill most any boss in two shots (most only take one), thanks to Legacy of nightmares and a few lucky legendary finds. As soon as I can scrape together some better damage reduction I would be happy to join you all for some bounty runs.

    Season Reset Teams!

    I am interested(now that I know what it is). I can start the first evening.

    I may cross over

    I just started playing HC a bit towards the end of the current season, and there are several other HC players, at least. I haven't tried much group HC yet (except when someone was powerleveling me and, lie an idiot, I drifted a little out of position and got killed), but I am interested. HC is kinda extra fun because of the risk involved.

    Diablo 3 Build Challenge

    Don't have enough Barbarian and Wizard gear, but had some fun making a Holy Shotgun and a Punish/Shield Block/Blinding Glare build. Neither is particularly original however. Both use Punish and Block heavily and are less prevalent than the most-used punish/block build, with the Invoker set. Didn't make a Blessed Shield build yet. Other than that, I kinda drew a blank.

    Diablo 3 Build Challenge

    might be a fun thing to do to kick off Season 14 (whenever that is)

    Diablo 3 Build Challenge

    Sounds kinda fun, although complicated by people not necessarily having the items in question. Getting the needed stuff could be fin or could be a PITA, not sure.

    Noob questions about co-op play

    I have only played GRs co-op about five levels below my solo upper limit (except one time when I was indeed being carried), and found them too difficult to complete in time for an upgrade. We usually finished the rift (although died a lot) just not close to fast enough. I guess co-op greater Rifts are only for either (A) teams that are really working together intelligently or (B) A stronger player doing a favor for a weaker one. Otherwise there seems no benefit, since (as I understand it) the loot and gem upgrades are the same, yet the rift gets a lot harder. I would love to try a rift with a real team sometime, although I have no idea how that works, or what kind of build I should use, in that case.

    Division Memebers! We want your input!

    How about multiplayer greater rift clinics? Most of my experiences playing GRs with groups have been relatively unrewarding (whereas bounties with groups is really good).

    Noob questions about co-op play

    Guess I should be more specific with my question... I had hoped that playing GRs co-op might make it possible to tackle rifts that would be too difficult for me solo. Instead it seems like the opposite may be the case. Is playing difficult Greater Rifts co-op a bad idea unless you have a coordinated team with people that know what they are doing? It seems like that, so far.

    Noob questions about co-op play

    So having played co-op a few times now, I have question About Greater Rifts: If I can normally solo GR [some number], I find that I get my ass handed to me on a GR several levels lower that would be an easy solo, if I have a partner. I die a lot more and can't kill bad guys fast enough to beat the clock. I suspect that this is because the difficulty scales sharply and co-op GRs require more tactical finesse than just doing what I normally would solo while the other person does what they normally would solo. Is this correct? What can I do?

    What are the general mins for T13?

    I am kind of a novice myself, but my impression is that it depends more on your gear than your Paragon level (but of course, that affects things too). My main Crusader Invoke setup can handle T13 easily, and kills most bosses in a few seconds, but experimenting with some alternative builds (that I am less well equipped for) based around Akkhan, I get killed pretty easily by random mobs of idiots. I suggest trying out some higher levels solo and see what happens.

    Noob questions about co-op play

    Played with some OD folks yesterday and had a very good experience. All much more experienced than me and patiently tolerant of my n00badelic antics. One fellow even gave me some nice new legendary bits for my baby Necro. I had to stop playing finally to find space to put all the shiny new toys.

    Noob questions about co-op play

    Hi, I haven't played a co-op game in a while, and when I did, it was mixed experience. Some great people, some sharks who weren't to nice about people not playing on their level, and even more idiots who seemed to have screwing up the game for everyone else as their main entertainment. As a result, I am cautious about Diablo III. Some questions: Is there any organized effort to put together games or do folks just join up to whomever shows an open game in the clan? Do most people use Discord? Am I correct in thinking every player gets their own loot, so being a loot ninja is not possible, and one can grab whatever one finds with a clear conscience? Am I correct that seasonal and-non seasonal characters can't play together in the same party? Thanks, I am sure I will have more questions, but this is enough for one post.
