"Your armor and weapon sockets should be taken up by the highest tier Topaz gems you can afford at the time"

 

Dont use Topaz in weapons please, Emeralds belong there.

 

I guess you know that but only forgot to mention :)

Hello,

what do you think of a maximus as weapon?

I just got one and i find it pretty efficient

 

The Maximus is a very decent starter weapon indeed, an excellent transition tool into the endgame wands. :)

I'd say yes, but you can circumvent starting builds almost entirely since you get a free set from the Seasonal journey! :) Assuming you're starting fresh, of course.

I got an etched sigil, works really good with this build, however, i am 50/50 with swapping the teleport out for a apocolypse blizzard, have tried both, and each has its merits.  the etched sigil spams blizzard while using disintegrate for a lot of constant wide-area damage, plus occasional black holes (gives you a separate black hole on an invisible timer, basically allowing you to cast 2 black holes in quick succession), but you lose maneuverability . . .

just tried out this build, fond it works rather well.  however, after i got a etched sigil, i have been on the fence between the teleport/calamity and blizzard/armageddon.  I use the disintegrate, which causes black hole to cast (on a separate, invisible timer, allowing you to still cast your own black holes), but with both blizz-geddon and black holes, you get constant area spam from blizz and intermittent black holes thrown in.  also helps that i have enough reduction that it costs almost nothing to stand still and spam disintegrate until the cows come home.  just wondering what you think of my alteration (with my lucky legendary) . . .

Etched Sigil is a great offhand to get early on! Your modification sounds spot on, you can easily move on to set builds from where you are.

Hello. I'm sure this is a very noobish question (just started D3 a week or so ago). When you say " a cubed Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac " what exactly do you mean? I've unlocked the kanai's cube and I see Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac under the rings (it's currently greyed out) but I am unsure of how to actually craft one? Am I missing something?

Thank you for the help!! (PS. I'm trying to finish the set before the season ends!)

You need to enable "selective mode" in the game settings.

Then you can use several skills from one tree.

I've previously played Diablo 3 on the PS3 on have decided to buy the PC version to give seasons a try and play the D1 event and forthcoming Necro.

Do I need to run through the whole of story mode before I can participate in seasons/the event and use adventure mode?

Yes, I believe you need to clear the story to play Adventure mode.

It means you've extracted the legendary power of the obsidian ring of the zodiac (which is a random legendary drop) and have equipped it in the kanai cube like you mentioned.

What a pain! Thanks for answering.

It can be a fun little way to start the season! It's a bit slower, but can be more enjoyable than mindlessly levelling through rifts.

I didn't have to play through. I think they must've changed it in the latest patch.

Interesting! Thanks for coming back to leave a note of that, I'm sure it will help those that might be looking for an answer! :D

Is the Chantodo's Resolve set considered endgame?  I'm nowhere near endgame, I can barely do T3 without getting in trouble, but I'd like to plan ahead. 

I know this is a lot to ask, but could someone take a look at my Wiz and see what I'm doing right and wrong with her as far as equipment, stats, etc.  http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Ocotillo-1142/hero/64071694

The archon buildcwith Chantodo's seems to be the go to for end game yes. I've tried experimenting a lot with other builds the last few days for T10+ and haven't found anything that doesn't have a hard time in those difficulties.

I started the season on my wizard so the full firebird set from your chapter completion is very strong using a disintegrate build based around its 6 piece set bonus.  I can easily clear T9 and T10 depends on the map as some enemies can be very deadly. 

Another build that can easily breeze through anything T10 and below is an explosive blast build with the Tal Rasha set. This build is much more survivable then the previous build and does much more consistent damage, as the build I listed above has a much harder time dealing with non elite mobs so you should just avoid them and hunt for elites. This build however feeds off non elite mobs as you will be utilizing the Gold Wrap belt and therefore killing and looting gold before engage an elite will pretty much make you invincible. This build however is not as good in greater rifts as disintegrate because of this fact since gold does not drop in there.

The archon build you are going for is for T10+ and high lvl Grifts, anything under that and up to Grift 50 you should use one of the above builds.

here is my current wizards link for example http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/mraist-1883/hero/83593304

      A new PTR is coming next week, as we get a look at the new patch and Season! Season 24 brings a tribute to Diablo 2, specifically Ehthereal weapons which will be very powerful, with class legendary AND passive abilities on them, on top of more powerful stats! In terms of item changes, we have Mystic Ally and Inna set changes, along with a Crusader and Necro item tweak as well, but there might be more since these are only preliminary/pre-PTR release notes.
      2.7.1 PTR (Source)
      Our two-week PTR testing period for the 2.7.1 update begins June 17 and we're asking for your help to quell the tides of surging demons. Take a look at the preliminary patch notes below and start theorycrafting how you'll make the most of the Ethereals and new balance changes; Patch 2.7.1 will be arriving soon. Table of Contents
      PTR Focus Details PTR Tips Patch Notes Seasons Items Bug Fixes How to Participate in PTR PTR Character Copy Please note that this is a preview for PTR content, which is subject to change.
      PTR Focus & Details
      We’ll be conducting the Patch 2.7.1 PTR over the course of two weeks, starting Thursday, June 17. During this time there may be periodic maintenances, outages, hotfixes, or minor patches.
      There will be three PTR-unique buffs active to help you on your journey: increased Legendary drop rate, increased experience gains, and double Blood Shard drops. You can also buy new gear for testing from the special PTR vendor, Djank Mi'em, who will exchange Blood Shards for class-specific bags full of Legendary items and Ethereals that we'd love for you to test! Class and Balance Changes: To ensure that the most significant class changes receive an ample amount of attention, we'd love for you to focus testing and feedback on the set changes to the Monk's Inna's Mantra set, Crusader's Aegis of Valor set and the Necromancer's Masquerade of the Burning Carnival set. New Season Theme Testing: We're looking to gather feedback on the seasonal theme content featuring Ethereals. So that we can efficiently review your posts, feedback should be provided in the PTR Feedback forum while bug reports should be provided in the PTR Bug Report forum.

      PTR Testing Tips
      As with our previous PTRs, this testing period is short, so it's best to hit the ground running. Whether you’re a PTR veteran or newcomer, we thought we’d pass along a few tips to get you started.
      Because of the limited duration of this PTR, we ask that participants pick a particular portion of this update to focus on testing. For example, if you’re primarily a Wizard player, consider what changes impact the Wizard specifically. What you like best, what you think may still need adjustment, and what you’d want to see in the future (even if that may be beyond the scope of this patch) are all good questions to ask yourself. Prior to the start of PTR, consider stocking up on items like Puzzle Rings and Bovine Bardiches. Having these available after you import your character can make any necessary PTR farming much faster! Try to break things! Just tell us when you do so we can make sure that the patch launch is as smooth as possible. When providing feedback, focus less on a solution and more on your experience. How did the changes make you feel? Was there something “off” that you noticed? Did something seem wrong or insufficient? Suggestions are always welcome but identifying the issues themselves is most important. Return to Top
      Patch Notes
      Below you will find the patch notes for the upcoming update for Diablo III, Patch 2.7.1.
      PATCH 2.7.1
      Table of Contents:
      Seasons Items Bug Fixes Note: All changes apply to all versions of Diablo III, including PS4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC unless otherwise indicated.
      Seasons
       
       
      New Season Theme: Season 24 introduces Ethereals, a new weapon-type that players will be able to acquire and hunt for in their upcoming seasonal journey. Ethereals will roll a powerful set of affixes, a random Class Weapon Legendary Power and a random Class Passive Power. Ethereals will have unique icons, names, item types, and sounds originally found in Diablo II. For additional details on Ethereals, check out the list below:
      Ethereals are account bound and can only be dropped by monsters, chests, and destructibles, but do not require your character to be level 70 to drop. Ethereals cannot be acquired through Kanai's Cube or from Kadala. Ethereal rarity drop rate is set between Ancient and Primal items. There are 3 unique Ethereals per class. Each Ethereal has fixed affixes and rolls one random Legendary Weapon power and one random Class Passive Skill. Only one Ethereal can be equipped at a time. Ethereals ignore item durability loss. Legendary Powers and Class Passive Skills rolled on Ethereals do not stack with the same power equipped through Kanai's Cube, Items or Skills. Ethereals cannot be Enchanted, Transmogrified, Dyed, Reforged, or traded. Ethereals can be augmented. Collecting all 21 Ethereals during Season 24 will reward players with the Feat of Strength, Ethereal Recollection. Players who accomplish this will have all Ethereal transmogrify options available for future seasonal and non-seasonal play. Ethereals only drop in Seasonal play, and will not transfer to your non-seasonal character when the season ends. Season Rewards: Two unique new rewards, a portrait frame, and a pet will be granted to players who complete the Season 24 Guardian Journey. Please note that the reward content will not be available during PTR 2.7.1.

      How to Participate
      To participate in the public test, you must have a Diablo III game license attached to a Battle.net account in good standing (i.e. one that hasn't been suspended or banned). In addition, you will also need to download and install the Blizzard Battle.net desktop app if you have not already done so.
      Step 1: Restart the Battle.net desktop app. Step 2: Navigate to the Diablo III tab on the left-hand menu. Step 3: On the Diablo III screen, there is a drop-down menu right above the "Play" button (note that this may say "Install" if you do not have Diablo III currently installed). Select "PTR: Diablo III" from this drop-down menu before proceeding. Step 4: Click Install to begin the installation process. Your PTR account will be created automatically if you do not already have one. The PTR is available in all supported languages, and accounts from all regions are eligible to participate. For additional assistance with installing and launching the PTR, click here.
      Return to Top
      PTR Character Copy
      The option to copy your existing Diablo III characters from your live account to the PTR will be available and can be done directly through the PTR client. However, only one region per account can be copied at a time. So, if you choose to copy characters from your account in a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost.
      Step 1: Log into the live game and then log out. Step 2: Log into PTR client and create a level 1 character. After you're done, return to the main character screen. Step 3: Click on the "PTR Copy" button located in the upper right-hand corner. (The PTR Copy button will not appear in-game until you have created a new level 1 character.) Step 4: Select your region. Step 5: Click "Copy." This will copy all characters on your account from the selected region. Step 6: You will be disconnected from the PTR client. Step 7: Log back in. Your copied characters will be available for play. Please note that you can only copy characters from one gameplay region at a time. If you choose to copy characters from a different region, any previously copied PTR characters will be lost. In addition, you can only copy characters over to your PTR account once every 24 hours. Attempting to copy characters before this cooldown is up will result in an error.
      Return to Top
      As this is a test server, please anticipate uneven game performance, and note that restarts and downtime may occur without warning. Thank you, and we look forward to your feedback!
