do you fire a bow irl while holding the quiver?? doesn't robin hood strap it to his back?


dual wielding two handed swords was a bug that they fixed. Having a quiver on your back is by design.

it's Diablo logic = zero

yeah just got confused with the slot names i guess.
and as troyshaun says, logic isnt there.

i've been rolling with 2 1 handed crossbows (very similar DPS) hitting me up with huge amounts of dexterity but now that i can just use a 2 handed crossbow/bow and a quiver well that should get slightly better results i imagine.

so with monk, what would the benefit of a 2 handed weapon over 2 1 handed with similar DPS be.

monks all about speed imo.

The bosses are not the issue. They are reasonably easy once you know how to avoid the big attacks and kite them around.

It's champion packs with "Molten Jailer Vortex Fast Rapist" suffixes that are the issue. They are way tougher than boss fights.

Do I have to finish normal to get to the next difficulty?

Seems overly easy (as I'm sure it is) but is taking much time.

there were no single handed bows in D2 and they all required quivers so in that sense the mechanic has not changed

So glad I haven't run into a pack with the rapist suffix. I am but an innocent scantily clad demon hunter.

I'm a barbarian and at the moment wielding two 1 handed axes. At my current level (20) I can wield two 1 handed axes at 21 dmg each or next level I can craft a purple 2 handed axe at 28 dmg (for a 2 handed wep).

Are two handed weapons always significantly less dmg or am i missing something?

The game is retarded like that. 2 handers should be more damage but many variables can change this, including the items level which isnt displayed, modifiers etc. Also save your gold and dont waste your money with blacksmith. You can get better stuff on the Ah for the same price it will cost you to craft and atleast you know what stats you are getting. You're going to want the gold for when you get more towards the end of hell difficulty/start of inferno for gear.

it's not retarded, because they do, in almost all instances of the game. the trade off to dual wielding is sacrificing dmg for speed.

in D3 the DPS metric takes all that into account so you can easily tell whether you're better off attacking quicker with less dmg or attacking slower but with more dmg.

OK so you know how the other day I was saying I could still play while all your servers were down? Well as it transpires there was a reason for that: for some reason the game defaulted me to the EU servers. RIP 40+ hours played on that toon

No you can pass 50, but you can only have 50 completed auctions "pending", either bought or sold, you need to go into the completed tab and collect them

Interesting: info from a Blizz Community Manager: "Inferno Act I loot" has a chance to drop in Hell Act IV as much as it does Inferno Act II.

yea didn't they say when they put in the update for PvP they are also going to update Legendary items as well as Put an actual level on the items so people can tell what level they really are, apparently there are some issues with that at the moment.

I have no idea what you are talking about.

that makes sense though and will be rather helpful for me, in that i don't use the auction house, would be near impossible to go from grinding Hell to doing Level one of inferno solo with out any help. things are looking up.

Tanking just refers to someone who gets in close to enemies - so yea closest person, most preferable taking hits while the ranged guys sit back and by pussies.
