Links to gear on Diablo III site are broken

Recommended Posts

I was taking a look at some build here on Icy-Veins and realized that all of the items that are non-recipes, appear to link to broken pages.

Example: Inarius's UnderstandingInarius's Understanding 

The link for Inarius's Understanding from Icy-Veins links here: "inariuss-understanding" when it should be fully qualified, "inariuss-understanding-P6_Necro_Set_3_Helm"

Here is a working link: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/inariuss-understanding-P6_Necro_Set_3_Helm

I believe that Blizzard changed their URL scheme when they released Patch 2.6.0 back in June. Is there a reason why the links don't work anymore or why they have not since then?

Interesting that the hover works and showing the item but clicking the link does not O_o

Yeah, the hover is an Icy-Veins database call to grab their data. It is cached on their website. An external call out to the Battle.net site will not work. I have put together a spreadsheet of all the weapons and armor with their correct links.

You can check it out here.

Thanks for the report! We indeed cache the tooltip DB. We used to use the tooltips directly from Battle.net but it would create problems when Battle.net was under maintenance.

I last updated the DB when patch 2.6 was released, so they must have changed something afterwards. I'll run an update now and this should fix everything.

This should all be fixed now. Blizzard changed a lot of stuff in the armory after 2.6 was released and I hadn't caught these changes (this was done after the patch, because nothing had really changed on patch day).

      So uhm, first post here and i take the opportunity to take you guys through my fabulous journey into "breaking" the tavern brawl this morning.
      So i get on that six-shooter tavern brawl with a mage decklist ( just cause i need them gold from quest ya know :D ) and on my second or third game,
      I play Research Project my opponent had then 10 cards in hand and draws for the turn, but no deck refill.... He then plays Barnes, no minion comes up from the battlecry. so it aint a visual bug. start my turn, play another Research Project, my opponent fatigues for 1+2, i can then OTK him with my 0 costs spells due to my 4 copies of Sorcerer's Apprentice.
      Fun fact, the tavern brawl clearly says; Make a six-card deck and duel! Don't worry - when you're out of cards you get a free reload!.
      Can anyone recall to this happening to them or no one had the cojones to mill?

      Good day
      I've recently restarted my D3 experience and gone through the last 2 seasons. 
      As many players can connect to I'm not entirely sure what items to keep and which not to.
      I first stacked and compared any legendaries but as the ancient items came along I mostly threw out the normal legendaries.
      Now as Primals are starting to pop up I of course keep all of those, and needless to say I keep best of any unique set item.
      This however is also too much for my meger 8 tabs.
      Is there a guide out there designed to illuminate players on what items to keep (Most useful) and which to throw away (Most useless) ?
      Some items are niche I assume, and some are cross-class useful. Some are only useful for one class and one build.
      But I want most to know what items are utterly and completely useless no matter their rarity.
      I've reviewed this excellent guide by Damien - https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/legendary-item-salvage-guide
      And it does cover alot of what I am looking for but It actually bothers me to see the Set items there as I'd think their mostly a no brainer (At least the class specific ones) and I also agree with many of the comments that many item's are "Cube Only" and thus no need to hoard them.
      Would love to see such a Hoarder's Guide to Diablo 3

      Hi everybody,
      I have some questions about stuffs Best in Slot for Rogue Assassination.
      In the guid written by Fury in this link (https://www.icy-veins.com/wow/assassination-rogue-pve-dps-gear-legendaries-best-in-slot).
      He said for head and Chest, you should choose these items:
      Helm: Fanged Slayer's Helm
      Chest: Hide of the Abyssal Behemoth
      But I chose these items, because when you see characteristics and calculate them, it’s better (see below)
      Helm: Lunar-Wrath Headgear (boss: Sisters of the Moon)
      Chest: Fanged Slayer's Chestguard (Maiden of Vigilance)
      In each item, you got Mastery and it’s the second best characteristics, but in items suggest by Fury you don’t have Mastery.
      If someone could explain me, it would be graceful.
      Stat priority:
      1)      Agility
      2)      Mastery
      3)      Versatility
      4)      Critical Strike
      5)      Haste

      What's up with the site?
      Missing text and no drop down menus
      I have disabled adblock and it's still messing around

      So I got Drape of the Dark Hunt from my Mythic box from a garrison mission but a few days ago. I got a heroic Cloak of Delving Secrets with a socket. 
      I'm BM with 4pc and I'm just wondering is losing the stats from having mythic worth getting haste/mastery plus a socket for a mastery gem.
