Diablo 3 RoS Fire Based Weapon Throw Ancient Spear Barbarian Build

Hey guys, here’s a fire based Weapon Throw build I’ve put together. For right now I really don’t have a lot of great gear for a Fire-based build but this build can still pump out some decent damage. I can fairly easily kill stuff with it on Torment III right now.

This build does require a few different pieces of gear. As with any Fire-based build, Cindercoat is pretty much a must. The Three Hundredth Spear is also something that is pretty much needed with any type of Weapon Throw/Ancient Spear build. For me, the damage on my spear is pretty low and my Cindercoat isn’t very good either, but they still work.

Build Notes

  • You want to have Cindercoat and Three Hundredth Spear for this build.
  • Any other + to Fire skills would help it a ton.
  • This build uses a lot of Fury, so adding to Max Fury in Paragon points is a good idea along with resource cost reduction.
  • I like using Ground Stomp when monsters get close and it helps to setup a good Volcano as well.
  • Battle Rage – Bloodshed helps spread the crit dmg from Ancient Spear out a bit.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it for this build. Try it out and if you have any additions or changes you like to it let us know. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos and come hang out on my stream.

List of all the Lvl 70 Set and Legendary Plans

Hey guys, after picking up what seems to be plan after plan, I was wondering how many of these legendary plans exist. I know I’m probably not the only person that wonders that. So, I thought I would put together a list of all of the level 70 legendary plans.

This list only includes the blacksmith recipes as it is pretty easy to determine what plans you get for the jeweler. I have the regular Legendary plans broken down into two categories (Armor, Off-Hand, and Weapons) and have the Set plans in their own category.

Also, instead of showing you the plan tooltip when you hover over it, I am showing you what item the plan makes. I find this easier and faster to see what’s so special about each and every legendary. The sets are different since one plan makes multiple items and these are broken down into each piece of the set.

Anyway, I hope this list helps you out. Let me know if you notice any mistakes or if I’ve left anything out. Also, remember next time you get a legendary plan to drop you didn’t want….be happy…and learn it so it won’t drop again.

Lvl 70 Demon Hunter Update

Hey guys, I thought I would put an update video showing you where I am basically starting at after hitting level 70 on my demon hunter. I leveled to 70 earlier this week but haven’t played him since really.

This really does show how good it is to craft legendaries for your new level 70s. It makes it a lot faster to be able to take on at least Torment 1 pretty fast.

Here’s a link to my profile

I still have a lot of work to do on this character but feel like I’m at a really nice starting base. Once I determine a build I want to play I will be able to optimize a lot more and better.

I will also then upgrade my gems to much better ones once I get some really nice legendaries as well. Also, another 1-hander is on the want to have list.

Diablo 3 RoS – Easy Solo Powerleveling Method in Act 1 Wretched Mothers

Want to level fast but are sick of trying to get certain events to spawn? Then this method is just what you need. It’s really fast and doesn’t rely on RNG to spawn certain things.

You do have to be able to kill monsters on Normal difficulty. This can be useful for Hardcore but you want to make sure you have enough defense to not get one shot on Torment VI though.

Anyway, enough of that let’s get into the run breakdown.

Run Breakdown

  • Start a game on Normal difficulty on Act 1 Fallen Star – Rumford at the Gate part of the quest.
  • Go through and kill 2 Wretched Mothers for the bonus quest.
  • Once you are 2/3 Mothers killed then leave the game and restart it on Torment VI difficulty.
  • Now, you want to aggro the first mother right outside of town and have her follow you into town where she will instantly die. You will get bonus quest credit and a ton of XP for that.
  • Rinse and repeat!

Nothing crazy difficult here or relying on RNG. Try it out and let me know how it goes for you. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos and come hang out on my Twitch.tv stream!

Lightning Whirlwind (WW) Barb Build

Hey guys, here’s my take on the Lightning WW Barb build. I have found it to be pretty effective so far and really like it. It does require some specific gear in order to be great, so keep that in mind.

You want a lot of % to Lightning skills damage and, ideally, you would want a Thunderfury and a Shard of Hate as the weapons. Also though if you don’t have those weapons a Fulminator and Odyn Son are great choices of weapons for this build as well. This build can scale up pretty well to higher Torment levels once you have some nice gear.

Build Breakdown

Build Notes

  • I like the extra dmg that comes from Rend with Bloodbath. For higher difficulty levels you can also switch to Rend with Blood Lust.
  • If having Fury problems can swap out Superstition to Animosity.
  • Can also switch out Rend for Weapon Throw with the Lightning rune for even more Fury regen if needed.
  • I usually keep Wrath and Earthquake to kill elite packs quickly.
  • Use Overpower as much as possible. Doesn’t cost any Fury and CD is reduced when you get Crit Hits.

That’s pretty much all there is to this build. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos and come hang out with me on the stream.

Major Rift and Gambling Loot Hotfix

Hey guys, this hotfix went live last night. It really is a major change to the way we are going to farm for legendaries. There is a whole huge explanation why from Blizzard. The main running reason behind it is they want players to do rifts as the end game in Diablo 3 RoS.

So, they decided to increase the legendary drop rate in rifts by 100% and they even decided to buff the legendary drop rate for Kadala even more than that. That’s good and all but there were a lot of other not so good changes as well. One of those being chests are going to be rare. Not super rare but not farmable either. They also buffed the drops from chests a bit to counter-act that. So, if you see a chest now make sure to open it.

Blizzard also nerfed the Unique monsters (purple-named monsters) you find in the game to be on the same drop table as champions and elite packs. They won’t drop as much loot anymore.

So, for now, the best way to farm for legendaries is to:

  • Run rifts.
  • Gamble your blood shards.

I think this is a pretty good change and actually makes blood shards kinda rewarding instead of just being there. Anyway, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos and come check out my stream on Twitch!

Diablo 3 RoS Patch 2.0.4 Changes – Buffs and Nerfs

Instead of doing a copy pasta of the most current patch notes for patch 2.0.4, I did a video going over some of the bigger buffs and nerfs. This should give you a brief breakdown of what to expect with the new patch.

I am wanting to do more videos like this one when patches hit as a way to let you know which videos that I’ve done in the past no longer work. Don’t worry though, I will update those specific blog posts to let you know when they are no longer effective.

Here’s a link to the official 2.0.4 patch notes: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/blog/13532431/patch-204-now-live-4-8-2014

Here’s a quick rundown of the buffs and nerfs of patch 2.0.4.

D3 RoS Hell Rift Bounty Powerleveling Run

Here’s an awesome powerleveling method that can help get you some major levels. It does require a couple of people to do, preferably a lvl 70 friend. This is probably one of the fastest powerleveling methods out there.

Yes, I do realize in the video we do have the 50% community xp buff live. Even without the xp buff this is probably one of the best.

Hell Rift Bounty Run Breakdown

  • Needs a couple of people. Preferably one lvl 70 to boost the lower level character.
  • Have the lower level player make a Torment VI Adventure Mode game.
  • Looking for the Clear the Hell Rift bounty in Act 5. There are 3 different possibilities of bounties here: Clear the Hell Rift, Kill Hammermash, or Kill Sledge. It does require going in and out of games until you get the Clear the Hell Rift bounty.
  • Was able to get my friend from lvl 2 to lvl 14 in one run.

Alright, that pretty much sums it up. Make sure to subscribe to my YouTube channel and feel free to come hang out with me on Twitch!

Act 1 Safe Hardcore Powerleveling Method

The other day I did a video showing the Act III event farming area for experience. It was pretty popular and just brought one question to mind that I couldn’t find the answer to. Where could someone do the same type of powerleveling on hardcore?

Well, I found this spot today. It’s safer than safe and all you do is turn in a quest. It doesn’t involve fighting monsters, or heck…you don’t even see a monster at all the whole time (the setup doesn’t even have a monster).

Yes, like the other area we are depending on an event to spawn so this can get kinda boring. I recommend you have some friends come along and help you out. Fire it up on Torment VI and go. Check it out and let me know what you think!

Run Breakdown

  • Start on Act 1 Trailing the Coven quest. Take the waypoint to Wortham Chapel and run until you get the checkpoint right before entering the spider cave.
  • From there every game you will have to run backwards a bit to see if the vendor with the cart spawned. If he did grab the quest and turn it in to the hermit next to the spider cave entrance.
  • Having friends help find a game where the cart spawned is a great way to speed it up a lot.
