Diablo 3: PTR Patch 2.7 Season 23 Initial Testing With Wizard Tal Rasha + Firebird Revamp

So I hopped on the PTR today a few times to give the new Firebird revamp a spin along with checking out the new changes for ones Followers. Initially, I thought that the Tal Rasha 5 piece + Firebird 3 piece would be good but I did encounter issues as I upped the difficulty level.

Diablo 3: The Typhon’s Veil Hydra Build Review

So I finally got my Hydra build up and running. Sadly, it was far easier to gear this character than my demon hunter, but that’s understandable as my demon hunter was my starter. However, before I tried this build, I was going Legacy of Dreams just to give it a shot. It felt a little awkward since I had no idea what I was doing and made the decision to try the new wizard set instead.

Diablo 3: Should Firebird’s 2 Piece Bonus Be Reworked?

My title for this blog is more of a rhetorical question rather than a real question because the answer is clearly: YES!

And when you have problems killing one of the easier bosses in the game, you clearly know you have issues with a set.

Diablo 3: Delsere’s Magnum Opus 2.0 Review

The big thing about Season 5 for Diablo 3 was how Wizards now have become one of the top classes in the game alongside Crusaders. One of the more popular builds is for DPS in 4 man groups which has become the season’s group meta. What has changed and what makes the Delsere’s such a high end build?

Diablo 3: Why Vyr’s/Archon Is An Unpleasant Build/Skill

In trying to gear up a new seasonal wizard recently, I found myself with the Vyr’s/Archon set. To say that this set sucks is an understatement. I know there are those that managed to make it work and did well with it. But that doesn’t necessarily mean the set/skill is any good.

Diablo 3: Great Night for Gearing

Last night was awesome in terms of getting gear. I decided to switch back to playing a Witch Doctor out of boredom in playing my barbarian and demon hunter a bit much lately. For her I was missing one key piece of gear…was

Diablo 3: Weekend Grinding With Demon Hunters, Wizards and Barbarians

While I do have some time to play during the week, most of my progress for Diablo 3 comes exclusively on the weekends. This weekend my main target was to finish putting together an Unhallowed Essence build which I managed to accomplish. So I’d like to share some thoughts on that as well as other things I’ve been working on along the way.

Diablo 3: Patch 2.2 Early Look and Thoughts

Blizzard gave us a sneak peak at Patch 2.2 for Diablo 3. The main theme for the patch is increasing the breadth of class builds through adding a few new sets and updating older sets to become more competitive. In addition, there will be a few other changes such as new Bounties for Adventure Mode, goblins and quality of life changes. For this blog, I want to focus on the new sets and legendaries and talk a bit about my feeling about the patch.
