Yeah they are and also an "Infernal Machine" Build which will reward you with a Legendary Ring. It will probably be like the Ubers in D2 where you needed essences to make the portal, then the organs of the Ubers.


I'm just happy that /player option will increase the % of drops for MF!

Did an act 3 run last night with 4 friends. While cleaning the Depths, my friend drops a nice pair of Depth Diggers with 189 intell. We get to Siegebreaker... i drop right before the kill so lost my drop with NV5.

Then in the crater, another friend drops à 1195 DPS Windforce....!

Nothing for me during the whole run.... 1.0.5 can't come soon enough!

For now I'm planning on keeping it and might buy a pair of Phys resist Blackthorne's pants to go along. First I wanted to get Inna's Chest but it's not that great. The Inna's Pants are also pretty expensive so Blackthorne's would do for now.

The bonuses to resists and to life are incredible. I got a roll with 197 vit which gives a nice bonus. The max resist to all and the 39 to phys are a plus for my monk!

I would just need to buy 3 +58 Dex gems but they go for 10M a piece and I'm not that rich!

When i saw the set chest armor I was like : Oh damn maybe it's an IK that would sell for 100M+.

Picked it up and recognized it was Blackthorne's.. I was like meh.. Identified it... and was like... wooah!

And now that the radiant star gems are dropping in value, I could pick 3 (or the one before for 2.75M..for a difference of 12 in dex and save 15 M..... wink.gif)

My monk is now at around 36K DPS in MF gear (was at like 26K last time I played with you) and still need to upgrade my claws. I would like to hve a stable 40k DPS in MF gear while still staying alive! Getting there!

If anyone is interested, the much anticipated 1.08 patch is out.

They have made HUGE changes to this game in recent patches. Like the addition of Monster Power and Paragon levels (that lets you go past 60) all of which increases gold drops, magic drops, experience, etc. Now legendary items drop regularly. Plus they are now talking about putting in custom item drops that will be geared towards the type of character you are playing. Plus lots of changes to skills for each class in the various patches. I tried playing it again and was addicted all over again.

Maybe I'll check it out.

I'd have to power up my old cellphone because I never transferred my key generator. Then try to remember my password too.

When did that happen? I don't recall reading about it and haven't noticed a change in the drop rate in game.

It is because of the combination of 1.08, paragaon levels, and MP. The higher the monster power the more magic items drop. I am playing at monster power 5 and I get 2 legendaries per game session at a minimal, that is up from zero after weeks of playing.

titan quest is s much better game. Ill probably login to diablo 3 again at some point but it just didn't keep my attention as long as d2 or titan quest and I'm not sure legendary loot drop rate increase is the final answer!
post #584 of 663
Saw a demo of Diablo 3 running on a console. I was mostly interested in the new interface and controlls. Do you think it might be possible for Blizzard to release a patch to enable these features for the PC? Then I might dust off the old game and give Nightmare mode a try using my xbox controller. Or was it Inferno that was the hardest setting? I forget. I bailed after beating Hell Mode without ever getting a legendary drop.

Path of Exile is fantastic as well. It's free -- and it's the game Diablo 3 should have been.

So, I decided to load up Diablo3 for a bit before bed. It's been a while (months?) since I've played it.

When I load the game, I don't recognize my main character. I look at the details and it's a level 60 wizard in Infernal difficulty (!), and the character I was playing was a level ~20 demon hunter in normal difficulty. Then the game logs me out, saying my account was logged in in another location.

So my account was hacked, right? eek.gif

I change my Blizzard.net password, and tie an authenticator to my account, get back in and thankfully my demon hunter character was still there, along with this hardcore wizard. Strangely, nothing else was done to my account.

So is this how "gold farming" is done? Is the password change and authenticator enough to avoid a compromised account again?

Yep, you got hacked (account jacked is more the correct term)

No that's not gold farming. Gold farming is done (usually by the Chinese, not trying to be racist, but it's true) by crafting/rare drop farming then selling, buying low selling high (depends on the game) for hours and hours on end, then sold to players for real money.

The authenticator should certainly help, there's been no legitimate accounts with an authenticator that have been hacked.
post #588 of 663
So I guess this "jacking" is the equivalent of someone joyriding on my account? I mean, they didn't change anything, or charge something to/from my account.

I notice they had logged like 160 hours on this level 60 Wizard @ Infernal. I also notice there were dozens of friends added, most also level 60 wizards. I play single-player solo lone-wolf style, so I don't accept friends requests.

I removed all the "friends", except two won't remove for some reason. Strange.

The only negative I can see to this is the "jacker" racked up a bunch of game achievements that I would have liked to earn legitimately.

Well hey, least you got a free character out of it lol. I feel you on the achievement thing, but oh well, could have been much worse.

EDIT: Wondering if I should log in and check, haven't had D3 installed in forever, but then again I also have had an authenticator since before D3 released so I doubt anything like that even happened.

Hey Eye - Couple questions if you know: how does the authenticator work? There's the app or the physical keybob - are they tied to a person's phone number (app) and/or address (keybob) so if someone "authenticates" a game install, Blizzard can track who that person is? If true, this is simply a "discourager" by shining light on a user, and not really any form of protection, right?

Also, this person that used my account - how much info did they know? Do they physically have my email address and password (before I changed it), or are they using some sort of software that forces their game into my account without knowledge of any of the details?

I'm just curious how this jacking thing works. I'm not sure I understand why they did it - it seems from Dec. 20th through Dec. 25th they played over 160 hours, added a lot of friends (other jacked accounts?) I guess to trade loot? But now I've hopefully locked them out, all that work is lost? confused.gif I'm not sure what they gain from doing that.

I'm not entirely sure how the authenticator works at a core level, but I do know they're not tied to a phone number or address. The authenticator (either one) comes with a serial number that's tied to the account, and it checks the entered code against the list of codes that the authenticator uses as far as I know.

The person who jacked your account does indeed know your email, as that's how you have to log in to the game, so in addition to changing your pwd, I would change the email address that Blizzard has on file just to be safe.

As for that many hours in a short time, it was probably more than one person on rotating shifts, that's usually how it goes.

You should report your hacked account to Blizzard even if you are back in control now. If your account was being used in a bot farm by gold sellers then your account could be flagged for cheating in the next ban wave. Make sure you save the emails / ticket number to refer back to if you were to get banned down the line.

Unless you got phished or used the same password elsewhere it's worth considering that your computer could be compromised.

Authenticators are an RSA token key. It's definitely not just a "discourager". It basically encrypts a password that changes every 60s or so. Your key has to match the servers key or your login is denied. So even if a keylogger gets your authenticator key or serial number they still don't have the info they need to login to your account because that key is going to change before they use it.

Interesting - my computer was hanging at startup, so I reinstalled Windows. Maybe I had a bot or something running? It's gone now.

I tried reporting this activity yesterday, but tech support was swapped. No email, no phone, and Live Chat was a 90 minute wait! eek.gif

I guess I don't understand how token keys identify me over someone else with my email, password and the Authenticator app? confused.gif

Anyway, I was playing D3 last night and I went to put something in my stash. Well, low and behold, my stash has a level 60 weapon, a level ~40 crossbow (my Demon Hunter can use this once he's to level), stacks of perfect square gems and training tomes, and some blacksmith plans.

This sounds like farming, right?
post #594 of 663
Blizzard knows which authenticator is tied to your account. Only your authenticator will generate the correct key to login. Hence, nobody else can login to your account even if they take over your email and know your password.

Based on what you said there it doesn't actually sound like farming. Sounds like someone just free riding on your account.. or perhaps someone who was sold the account on a used market or something. I think a bot would generally dump all their gems and tomes to a master account and sell or craft them up from there.

I was thinking I should start a new character so it will be in progress when Reaper launches. Any suggestions on something different to try?

I'm thinking Witch Doctor or Monk might be fun.

Me and my friend are also wanting to start new chars.

WD got a previous buff to Fire Bats and my friend was handling MP10 with "okay" gears critting over 1Millions

for the Monk, it's been my main class since beta since it's the closest to the Paladin we got so far.

If you have a DH already, you could swap some gear to the monk so he won't be naked but if you start from scratch.. you'll find gear anyways.

But if you haven't played either class, there are both a nice change from DH!
post #600 of 663
Man, this update changes a lot of things. I'm almost lost... it's taking some time to learn all the changes. Already got some decent drops. Currently playing my Demon Hunter on the new "Master" difficulty. Not sure if I'm ready for "Torment" difficulty yet! eek.gif

Anyone who hasn't played D3 in a while, load it up and check it out - it's like a whole new game!
