Diablo 3: How to Gear Up Quickly in Patch 2.3/Season 4

Unfortunately, the 2000% legendary buff won’t exist once the new patch 2.3 and season 4 hits. The normal way of gearing up in the past was just farming Blood Shards, using Kadala for set pieces and even leeching in T6 runs. However, with Kanai’s Cube in Patch 2.3, we have more ways to get the gear we need to start doing harder content. This blog will discuss using Kanai’s Cube’s transmutation properties for crafting your own legendaries.

Diablo 3: And Yet More PTR Testing With Monk, Marauders Demon Hunter and Kanai’s Cube

In addition, I’ve been playing around with Kanai’s Cube with regards to another power, the ability to convert rares into legendaries.

Diablo 3: Testing the PTR for Patch 2.3

Delsere/Tal Rasha 3/5 Combo Build

Last night, I gave the latest PTR build for Patch 2.3 a spin. Fortunately, there wasn’t a lot of people on and I successfully got in. That allowed me to complete a good number of bounties to finally start unlocking legendary passives and allow me to play around with a few ideas and experiment with different Torment difficulties as well as try some Greater Rifts.

Diablo 3: Season 2 Best Class Thoughts

With Season 2 only a week away, I decided to do some basic theory crafting to examine which classes will have the greatest potential for greater rifts. Since the new season will not present the set pieces introduced at Blizzcon, I will not address those. Instead, I will look at just the season specific gear that will be added to the pot and see how that should impact the seasons.

Diablo 3: Patch 2.1.2 Experience, Gearing and Farming Ideas

Patch 2.1.2 for Diablo 3 dropped yesterday and I gave it a quick spin with the Demon Hunter and Monk. Fortunately, I had the prescience to hoard various legendaries that I felt would eventually make a comeback in the future, thus allowing myself to quickly swap  some gear for both my Demon Hunter and Monk and dive right into the patch. I want to explore my experience thus far in this patch along with some ideas I have for gearing and farming ancient legendaries.

Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls: Are Demon Hunters Overpowered At the Moment?

The Marauders 6 set bonus make Demon Hunters one of the top classes in the game at the moment for handling end game content. With a decent 2-handed crossbow, the Bombadier’s Rucksack and Custom Engineering, even a poorly itemized Demon Hunter can solo and carry T4-5 rifts. Drop 5 sentries down and let them take care of the work while you avoid all the blows. Sound simple? It’s more than that.
