Links to gear on Diablo III site are broken

9 posts in this topic

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).

      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.
