I'm getting ready to grind a few levels or two to continue on in nightmare. electrocute does diddly squat against most of the zombies in act 1...

I just bought the second tab of the stash, and am going to go make the staff next I think while I level up a couple times just to catch up to people. I was level 31 when I beat diablo for the first time.

No it didn't but it takes time for the game to register that you're no longer playing so it would be possible to die during that time.

Ok I'm lost. If you're playing single-player Diablo 3 and loose internet connection, the game takes a while to realize you're not online anymore which means you may die (and in hardcore mode, your character gets wiped).

In single-player Diablo 2, no internet connection is required so how would it affect your game? The only things that would stop you in Diablo 2 would be loss of power or game crash. Either way, the game would stop altogether rather than leaving you in the world for a possible death.

Diablo 3, though it can be a single player game, is not playable at all without the internet connection.

I'm on the fence as to whether I like this or not. With Hardcore, yes you could lose a character if you lost internet...

That being said, I understand how some companies want to make sure software piracy doesn't happen...and this method sure will do the trick. It's doubtful you will be seeing anyone pirate this game....at least far less than any games that aren't authenticated with the game publisher.

Pros:
Little to no software piracy
Control over item duplication (which was rampant in D1/D2)
Harder to hack game to cheat (a good thing for many people, not so good for the cheaters).

Cons:
No internet connection, no game.
Login Servers down, no game.
IF you did try to hack and got caught, you would lose rights to play the game on that account.

As I understand, even accounts with the authenticator are being hacked.

yes, because they're stealing your session from joining a public game. not using your credentials to log in (authenticator).

Whimseyshire is trippy. Killing care bears and unicorns appeals to me though. This could become a game in & of itself!

You have better odds of winning the powerball without buying a ticket (finding the winning one on the street) than you do having your account hacked. Being in Forensics I passionately hate when I hear "my account was hacked!". No, you got socially engineered...

If your account was compromised then you did something to give them your login. Respond to any odd emails about your account being locked recently?

not sure why you quoted me.. i wasn't hacked (or phished, if you prefer).

just stated the current theory on how people are being compromised with this specific game.

however, these "hackers" have to have ways to get Blizzard's email lists. i've used obscure email accounts for Blizzard games and don't give them out or even check them often.. and somehow the spammers always show up. email accounts that i don't have associated with Blizzard games from the same mail service don't get fake Blizzard emails. interesting, isn't it? lol

I've gotten spam mails about Rift, Tera, WoW, Even Ultima Online. I ignore any e-mail that I'm not expecting from "Blizzard Entertainment."

On a side note, I re-installed windows this morning and think I may have fixed my bsod issues. I'm at 12% of the download of D3 again and will hopefully be able to finish it before I leave so I can play when I get home. I'm almost done with Act I in Nightmare. next level I get my venom hydra. That will make farming diablo or azmodan much quicker.

Actually, there is some validity to the theory that people are hijacking sessions.

Many people that have been hacked were using the authenticator. They also say that they may have been DDoS'ed right after their account was hijacked to keep them from being able to log back in to the Blizzard Server and retake control of their session.

There is only one problem with this, there are no client to client sessions. Not to mention the connection token should never be visible to a non client-server relationship.

Basically client 1-4 communicates with server exclusively, server communicates with clients and relays information accordingly. It's not like the diablo of old when the real host was the room creator.

hardcore isnt about an unlockable thing.. just when you make a character you simply click the "hardcore" selection in the create a character screen. If that character dies, he is dead forever.

Well you need to level a character on Normal mode to level 10 before you can create a Hardcore character.

Well I got all my alts to level 7 or 8 and are all about ready to kill the skeleton king. I beat the SK on my witchdoctor, which will most likely be my secondary character. I'm thinking barbarians are going to be freaking hard to play on hell/inferno because of the proximity attack issue (you have to be next to your target to attack).

According to Blizzard, every compromised account investigated thus far has been through traditional means (phising, key loggers, etc). And no accounts were compromised that had authenticators attached beforehand.

As it's been pointed out before, a new game is a prime target for malicious activity and account stealing. And since it's the top game out right now, more people are crying out when their accounts are compromised because so many more people are playing it.

But my wife and I just hit 60 last night and killed Diablo on Hell, so we're starting Inferno. So far, not bad. We make a good combo for kiting and killing as Witch Doctor/Wizard. I currently have 17k damage and 31k health. Working at increasing my resists next as we progress further into inferno.

Run, shoot, run. The only way to take them on is to kite them. If we stand still and take a mortar, we die. It's best to find an open area that you can go in a circular motion around them. My wife uses her poison hydra as a focal point to kite around. It keeps constant damage on them and I can pump out 2-3 shots of splinter darts before having to move again. I use a dagger/mojo combination instead of a 2hander for this reason. Also, double 15% attack speed rings and 12% attack speed gloves. Makes the cast/animation incredibly fast so I can move almost instantly after shooting. If I can keep stationary, it shoots incredibly fast back to back.

I can probably help some. I'll add you tonight. I think in Act 4 of Nightmare I was around 15k health, so you might want to look for some more vitality gear on the auction house. Farming for gear is nearly pointless before inferno. You're better off farming for gold to buy what you need of the AH. And being slightly behind the curve means lower level items are going for really cheap.

Edit: And in case anyone wasn't aware, weapon damage makes a huge boost for anyone. So before hell and inferno mode, wizards and witch doctors are best off using the highest damage 2 hand weapons you can find that has intelligence and vitality.

Anyone else work on a MF set and a normal set? At LVL 41 I have 82% MF without using gems in the slots.

I have only found 1 rare so far tho. And there was 46 pages of the same item in the auction house. My spec's were not that great either.

I was just reporting what I had been hearing. And, as always...not all information was in from Blizzard with this. Looks like none of the reported cases have had the authenticator, so I'm inclined to agree with you on this.

I find rares left and right with 44% mf.

As for the kiting, all have appeared in confined spaces (cellars, caves, drown temple orb places). I guess I just need to reload the game and hope for non mortar elites?

I'm only 37. Venom hydra comes in about 40,000 experience. Clow, you up for getting me to Act 4 nm today? I just finished the drowned temple last night so I think I'm on the third sword piece currently.
