Diablo 3: Ancient Items or No Ancient Items?

A controversial feature in the upcoming 2.1.2 patch is Ancient Items. Ancient Items provide approximately 30% improved stats. Currently, it’s not known which items will be seen as having the Ancient Item status outside of weapons. In addition, Ancient Items will have a very low drop rate (roughly 5-10% of legendary items dropped will have the Ancient Item affix). What does this imply going forward?

World of Warcraft: Hitting Level 100 and Warlords of Draenor Impressions

Probably, one of the most eagerly anticipated expansions, Warlords of Draenor, to come down the pipeline erupted to a pretty abysmal launch this past week. Since launch, the game has been plagued of numerous bugs, outages, horrendous lag, server capacity issues and DDoS assaults that has the World of Warcraft community up in arms.

Diablo 3: CarnEvil/Pet Doctor Build

Recently, I leveled up a second Witch Doctor with the intent of providing her with all my spare gear that my original Witch Doctor had obtained. My goal for my second Witch Doctor was to act as a bank alt but also to experiment with other gear builds beyond the high end Jade Harvester build. This blog talks about my experience so far with the Pet Doctor build that I’ve been working on.
