  • Diablo 3: Season 9 Evaluation

    I haven’t really blogged on the topic of Diablo 3 for a while so I thought it might be good to talk about my current situation with the game, the few changes brought in this patch/Season and maybe looking forward a bit to the next season.

  • Diablo 3: Demon Hunter Marauder Endless Walk Build for Patch 2.4.2

    Typically, for Marauders builds these days, you’ll see the M6 pairing with Focus/Restraint (Bastion of Will), Manticore, Wraps of Clarity and a few other key items. While this build is high in damage, it has a few issues in vulnerability when sentries are not up, is resource intensive and slow. So I want to present […]

  • Diablo 3: The Shadow Mantle Build

    Although Season 8’s Haedrig Gift for Demon Hunters will not be the Shadow Mantle set, I decided to goof around a little with this set and see what felt good in trying to come up with a reasonable build. This is by no means a meta build nor is it meant for ultra high Greater […]

  • Diablo 3: Season 8 Class Sets and Starter Character

    Season 7 is ending soon and we won’t be seeing any new content for Season 8 beyond changing up the Haedrig’s Gift sets. The good news is that we can begin examining the choices for characters based partly on what the next group of Haedrig’s Gift sets has to offer. Although there hasn’t been any […]

  • Diablo 3: Too Many Nerfs to Crowd Control and Solution to Seasonal Leaderboards

    This latest patch will bring more nerfs to crowd control. Obviously, the issue Blizzard is attempting to resolve is perma-cc situations, which usually are part of the group meta as they seem to want people just playing pure damage builds rather than support builds. There’s been quite a number of nerfs over time to CC […]

  • Diablo 3: Unhallowed Essence vs Marauders

    With Season 7 coming around the corner, it’s time to choose a class. I already stated why I’m not going to start with a Demon Hunter this season in a previous blog. But the idea of knowing which set to start with in a season is critical and goes into the essence of the difference […]

  • Diablo 3: To Buff or Not to Buff Items

    There’s an ongoing thread regarding some of the upcoming patch 2.4.1 changes that can be seen on diablofans. One of the comments someone on the d3 forums mentioned was the observation that mostly this patch will just buff items and some skills, leading to more power creep. While I don’t know if this particular patch […]

  • Diablo 3: First Impressions of Might of the Earth Barbarian Set

    This blog will go over some testing I’ve been doing since acquiring the main pieces to the Might of the Earth Barbarian set. I’m just off by two non-set pieces in the belt and ring that compliment the primary popular build. Instead, I want to go over an alternative build that combines this build with […]

  • Diablo 3: Was Whirlwind Barbarian Nerfed Too Hard in Patch 2.4?

    I read a few articles on how the popular Whirlwind Barbarian from the previous season/patch was nerfed into the ground, but I didn’t experience the issue until today. I had been working on both a Marauders Demon Hunter (main) and Thorns Crusader up until this point and decided to rebirth my old barbarian to check […]

  • World of Warcraft: Gearing in 6.2.3 for the Super Casual (Like Me!)

    Let’s say you just returned to World of Warcraft and just hit level 100 or had a supremely undergeared toon. There’s all this new content and it’s pretty overwhelming. What do you do? This guide is aimed at the Super Casual, who aren’t hardcore raiders, lack a guild and probably hate doing instances in fear […]
