Best Monk Build

As you play your Monk through Nightmare and Hell you will have to make several important decisions about which abilities and skill runes to select. Typically the decisions amount to whether you want to survive more, do direct damage, AoE damage or reflect damage. You can easily adjust your build as you go to counter […]

List of Random Mob Modifiers

Depending on what difficulty you’re running, Normal as 1, Nightmare as 2, Hell as 3 and Inferno as 4; mobs that spawn randomly in the game are given 1, 2, 3 or 4 random affixes. These are randomly selected from the list below and then those abilities are used randomly against you. So if you’re […]

Diablo 3 Expansion

It might seem early to talk about the inevitable Diablo 3 expansion, but many players have already solo’d to the end of Inferno and have long since either started another character or flew the coop. While I’m still working my way diligently through the game many people are asking “will there be a diablo 3 […]

Demon Hunter Solo Build – Hell / Inferno

This is a completely different approach to playing the Demon Hunter in hell difficulty than I have taken in my other guides. This is a user submitted build: “Evasion Fire is the next Demon Hunter nerf!  Use it before we lose it!” There seems to be as many ways to play the Demon Hunter as […]

Collapsing Economy

Are we in a recession? Diablo 3 released a little over a week ago and the going price of Subtle Essence has already hit rock bottom at 14 gold. The only reason it hasn’t dropped below that price is because in-game vendors will create 14 gold and give it to you for your Subtle Essence, […]

Nephalem Valor

In order to create an element of challenge and create incentive for players to stick with a single build or spec instead of switching to the best setup for each encounter, Blizzard has implemented a concept called Nephalem Valor. How does Nephalem Valor work? Easy, each time you kill a rare pack, elite or boss […]

Chakram vs. Impale Demon Hunter

Chakram, Impale, Rapid Fire and Elemental Arrow are the four secondary abilities suggested by Blizzard’s Demon Hunter skill system. Rapid Fire is a great single target ability, best used in a coop game or at early levels for fun while Elemental Arrow, especially with Frost Arrow is an interesting hybrid AoE/direct damage, but what I […]

Whimsyshire How To

How do you get to the secret Whimsyshire level in Diablo 3? Easy, collect 5 rare materials and a rare pattern, combine them, and you’re in! It’s that simple. But really… this isn’t for the faint of heart. Make sure you cancel your dinner plans tonight and call off movie night with your significant other.

Wizard Inferno Build

A Wizard was reportedly one of the very first classes to solo kill Diablo on Inferno difficulty. The trick that was used was to kite Diablo while using damage over time and companion support. The build used was an elective build that utilized companions, massive survival skills, quick-cast AoEs, increased damage passives and the likes. […]

How to Find and Buy Cheap Gear off the Auction House

I mentioned yesterday in my 9 mistakes players make in Diablo 3 that people are missing out on auction house gear. I said that you only need 30,000-50,000 gold to upgrade your gear. This is an estimate since most of my characters are already geared up but I still feel it’s possible. Here’s how it […]
