    Clan Rules:

    # Zero tolerance of swearing intentially to other clan members here or in game. Officers or myself will give a warning and pm me here and explain the context.

    # Botting I'll have to ask once to stop it or I'll be forced to remove you from the clan and report you to admins here if its on discussion about aquiring it. I have recently learnt that boting on this forum is also an offence so we are breaking rules here and via blizzard. I certainly don't want to indicate its OK to do so when I have said I don't mind previously. I have to make a decision and cannot be a fence sitter about it so appoligies. Clearly a lot don't agree and I have to cater for the majority and rules so if you want to bot do so in your own clan/community/lone wolf. Nothing personal.

    # Happy times. Please don't harass each other about silly topics. Learn to live together and play fair. We are all mates here so let's keep it on topic (most of the time ) and yeah keep it pleasent for new comers and welcome them.

    This is a basic general guide to leveling your first character at the start of a season if being powerleveled isn't an option.

    Background
    The most efficient way to level is running Fields of Misery and Halls of Agony level 2 and 3 runs solo. This is done by stringing hundred of kills together for a large Massacre bonus, over 400 kills gives the most experience. Knowing this you can run rifts solo if you prefer, also if in a group it would be better to run rifts as large massacre bonuses are almost impossible due to killing each others kills and distrupting the bonus.

    If you find your gear is too weak and you have not had an upgrade in a while you can do a boss kill (but don't dismiss whites as they can be a quick upgrade at lower levels). It may can be beneficial to go to Act 1 Halls of Agony level 3 and run to the Butcher or go to Act 2, Archives of Zultun Kulle and kill Kulle for drops. Only do this if it is a bounty though as you will not recieve the large bounty chest after the kill otherwise. If neither of these bosses are bounties you can restart the game until one is, just don't waste too much time doing so. You can also craft weapons as you upgrade the Blacksmith, try not to use too many mats though. You should only be spending money to upgrade your three Artisans in town except early rings and amulets and upgrading rubies. At level 7 merchants begin to sell rings, try to buy a couple with + damage, it may not seem like much but it will increase your damage dramatically. There is a merchant per town that sells rings and amulets, try each town for + damage rings. You can restart the game if you do not find any but I would not do this more than twice as you can become too far behind in your progression. At level 10 merchants start to sell amulets, try for a + damage amulet then. Try to salvage what you pick up as mats too as they will be needed.

    Starting on Campaign mode and running through to the Skeleton King then inviting others in the clan (if not done in a group) can be quite beneficial as playing this way guarantees a Leoric's Crown which increases the properties of the gem socketed in the helm by 75-100%.

    Keep all legendary items as you progress even if low level legs with an extracable legendary property, then later you can add them to the cube to extract their legendary ability.

    With gems simply sell any excess or what are too low level as you progress. The main gems are rubies, they are required in socketed helms for %XP bonus and in weapons as a damage bonus. Try not to upgrade rubies too often as this can become expensive, as you progress you will recieve higher level gems. Also keep gems for your primary type, rubies for strength, emeralds for dexterity and topazes for intelligence. Add to jewelry and armour (except helm) for a damage increase as you process. Once you hit level 61 keep Marquise and Imperial gems of all types.

    Try to get items with experience bonus early on then life on hit and life regen later on.

    Starting To Play
    When playing start an adventure game on Master differculty. Upon entering the game see the Templar and equip his weapon. Hire him and press F1 and select a pet for gold pickup. Try to chain as many kills as possible for the largest massacre bonus you can if not doing rifts.
    Once you reach level 3, lower the differculty to Expert. Later once you find you are not getting quick kills or getting killed, lower it again to Hard. When you restart the game you can choose to up the level if you are killing too quickly.

    Play through towards level 70 and don't forget to get your cube from Act 3 - The Ruins of Sescheron. Run through to the Elder Sanctum and locate the cube.
    Look at the seasonal journey and complete them to gain Haedrig's gifts which give you two set items for your cass, which set changes each season per class. Continue through the season journey and equip your character as you go.

    If you choose to go Necromancer like most in season 11 here is a guide by Bluddshed.



    Here are a couple starter builds for once you hit level 70.



    Enjoy!

    Only that the starcraft Beta has been released, so everyone is focused on that :p (news wise)

    I heard release of 2012 for D3, dont know how correct it is

    The most recent news was reveals of the female versions of the Barbarian and Monk. Nothing exciting really, I'm guessing the 5th class reveal will be at blizzcon this year.

    Asked at GAME about release date... On their system it says 30 Nov 2010.

    I did ask about star craft 2 - They have no date at all for that...
    I wonder if diablo 3 will come first?

    Either way i wish it would hurry up!

    Not that I have a hat to eat, but still.

    I'm surprised they even knew what you were talking about. The PC section in any GAME store takes up about 3% of floor space.

    Is this game DX11 or anything?

    you really are a noob.

    For current info head over to diii.net
    the main page has all current info on D3 and the wiki section has a lot of information and we also add to it when new data is available.

    Forums are also good fun, just watch out for people whining that it looks like a wow clone, and that it won't be successful because its a sequel and because they wan't to make money.

    Also we will be handing out beta-keys when they come around to prominent members, so enjoy :)

    18th of February, Bashiok (blizzard employee) mentioned that the choice of gender was purely aesthetic and has no effect on attributes, skills or any game affecting mechanic.

    Obviously we can't continually report about D3 because well, its a Blizzard game and they are tight lipped, but if something new comes out you will see it there within hours, and will be added to the Wiki asap.

    Since it is a D3 fan site we obviously have a lot of coverage of D2, Starcraft2 and Torchlight was reported heavily on the main page because of its relationship to the Diablo franchise.
