Diablo 3 tips - please share more!

Post by Admin on Tue May 29, 2012 4:49 pm

Here are a few Diablo III tips that should improve your experience considerably.


Remap your ability keys.

Did you know you have the power to remap your keys? For optimal results, move your ability hotkeys from 1-4 down to ASDF, and change Move to W. That way you never have to move your left hand from its natural position on the left side of your keyboard in combat, and you could put something on spacebar perhaps health potion or show items.


Explore those mini-dungeons.

The best loot drops generally come from killing Inferno-level bosses with a full stack of Nephalem Valor, but that's a bit in the future for most of us. In the meantime, do check out those Dank Cellars and Lost Ruins and the like – the mini-dungeons that dot the landscape in each act almost always have an elite/champion pack and a gold chest. From an XP/loot per time perspective, they're some of the best locations in the game.


Place the best ruby you can afford in your weapon.

The best rubys should only cost you around two thousand gold on the auction house, and the damage it adds when socketed into a weapon is substantial. Putting a square or better gem in a new character's weapon is a great way to give a recently created hero a significant boost. Don't forget to remove the gem from your weapon and drop it into a new one as you level and outgrow it – it's almost certainly quite a bit cheaper than buying a whole new gem.

Party Favors

Post by igoStoozy on Tue May 29, 2012 5:50 pm

Here is an easy one for you. When playing multi-player don't be afraid to go threw your skill and change runes to benefit the entire party. You would be surprised how even in a game with just 2 people how big a difference one or two party skills coming from both characters can make a difference. Take for instance the Barb's War Cry Invigorate along with a Monks Mantra of Healing Sustenance. The Mantra boost life Regen of party members by 620 per second While the War Cry boosts it an additional 310. That is 930 life Regen and 10% extra life bonus who doesn't want that stuff?
