so apparently when you run the downloaded version it connects you to Euro servers by default.

That's fine for single player I guess, but online play I'm going to have to switch to Asian servers ... can you move your character to a different server?

I'm not sure if I have Snow Leopard, I know I had to update my OS to 10.6.8 (I think it was that) but no idea beyond that.

I think my mate gave me Snow Leopard but I don't remember if I installed it.

God I suck with technology.

If I do have Snow Leopard then what should I change it to? And how would I do that?

At least we got him the next go before it went tits up again.

Glad you were up to that spot anyway, was a **** trying to kill him solo with a hunter, need monk or barb there so you can hang back and use ranged attacks.

I solo'd him with a hunter, thought it was easy enough? I dont think I've died on any boss with the hunter, seems a bit hax, pretty easy to keep away from things, imagine its more of a **** with a melee dude.

Yeah, staying out of the fire is easy enough but when you're relying on (edit: monk) melee damage it just plain sucks. Glad you were around for it.

And when he hooks/knockbacks into lava + your pots are on cooldown, it's such a saviour having monk healing to survive the flames.

I think having Vault on for boss fights is pretty invaluable for a hunter so far..... get dragged in to melee range, vault back out again.
Just tried to log on for a cheeky half hour game before a meeting, and its fucking down.

Emotions. Frayed.

Yeah vault is defo vital for hunter. caltrops are useful too but not for bosses, more for bogging down hordes of smaller enemies in choke points. What you using for your main atttack skills? I rely mainly on rapid fire + grenades or bola when while rapid is recharging. Chakra seems a bit shit.

not a primary stat for anyone, only benefit is +hp

str - barb primary, +armour rating
dex - monk/hunter primary, + dodge %
int - wiz/doctor primary, +res

Uhm I use piercing arrow, rapid fire, caltrops, vault, and evading fire or whatever its called.

Chakram only seems good if you are playing with other people and can just sit back and fire loads of them into a bunched up group that a melee guy is occupying, well, could be wrong but it seems a bit shit single player to me!

playing DH too SM?

i've found caltrops isn't as useful if you're playing in a party. barbs have better disables so i prefer to spam spike traps. sentry was so disappointing after i unlocked it. i've completely stopped using rapid fire since getting multishot.

Yeah been playing SP mostly so using hte caltrops to keep the hordes off, can see why it wouldn't be so necessary with a barb or monk around though.

Don't have multishot yet.

Kinda wishing I'd gone witchdoctor a bit now, seems to be a define lack of them around. Had a very brief fuck about with one in the beta.

i've played sections of the game using different skill combos and yeah i agree chakram seems shit. even with the first rune giving you a second one it's still pretty underwhelming. some of the later runes look interesting though.

i pwnd the butcher last night with my wizard coz he's got diamond skin. smidgin and whoever else (who the fuck is ttjfldksgaw gibberish name ) were having trouble with le fire, i just stood my ground and then bailed off to a corner and orbed him until i could recast diamond skin.

also, i have a book now (how fucking funny is it seeing a dude run around with a book) so i was reading harry potter spells at him or something.

it starts getting very crazy later on, thing i crafted something that was between +30-40 on 3 different stats of course one was +40 intelligence.

also found a 2 socket rare armor so that's some fun to play with, especially since the smithy is so far above me. more funds for the gem dude, shame there aren't runes though

tanks, if you are are bard, it's all defense / health and damage.

i like the setup with inventory too, nice touch showing the defense / hit point & damage change when comparing kit.

My barb is all about Vitality and Strength, well secondary to MF% of course.

after almost 30 lvls i've concluded that the new streamlined stats/skills system is a bit disappointing. there's no tough choices to make allocating points. level up, new skill, new rune. it's all too easy.

it puts more emphasis on the items, and i love items.

skills aren't all cut and dry either i have a set up that i'm sure not everyone uses and have another way different setup that is awesome to play too. quite like not being bound to stupid character stats, and having to go and talk to someone just to reset my skills.

if you want a tough choice play hardcore.

I don't mind it. I still reckon the best system in these types of games was the one in Dungeon Siege though, where you gained skills by using them lots (ie if you get lots of kills using a sword, you levellled up in the skill relating to edged weapons).

Yeah definitely ensure that it's funny optimised, ran like shit for me before it was full downloaded.

If you're on Snow Leopard upgrade to Lion (10.7).
