Diablo 3Guide [Demon Hunter]: Beating Hardcore

Enough fooling around! Melee Wizards, tank Demon hunters, sprinting Barbarians: we put them all aside and build a simple, brutal and effective high DPS Monk.

Diablo 3Guide [Demon Hunter]: Tank with the Demon Hunter

After a Crit Mass Melee Wizard and a Tornado Barbarian, we stay on the theme of builds that put the characters in the middle of it all. In this edition of the Guide Collector, we take an unorthodox approach to the Demon Hunter, making him take damage in the thousands instead of dealing it glass-cannon style.4

Diablo 3Guide [Barbarian]: Tornado Barbarian

Today’s Build Collector episode focuses on the dual-wielding, high-DPS tornado Barbarian. We make the powerful melee warrior run like the wind and whirl through enemies, wearing a kick-ass budget gear for a little bit under 2 million gold. 3

Diablo 3Guide [Wizard]: Critical Mass Melee Wizard

Welcome to our Build Collector - the episodic column of GosuGamers where we guide and acquaint you with the large variety of class skill builds which are currently popular in Diablo III.

We'll collect everything - cookie cutters, hardcore survival, fun and unorthodox builds, leveling and endgame strats or such designed for one particular act or boss fight. We'll examine how each of these can be customized to better fit different playstyles, what gear to look for, what are the underlying concepts of the build, how to play it (and how not to play it) and its pro's and con's.

For our first issue we take the somewhat unorthodox melee Wizard build revolving around the Critical Mass passive and crit chance gear.

Diablo 3Inferno difficulty, whining and the endgame of Diablo III.

There is much to be said about Inferno difficulty, the "endgame" of Diablo III. Given an almost mythological status before the game's release with Blizzard's claim that no one in their QA team has been able to beat it, gamers were looking forward to a challenge; and a challenge they got. Apparently too big a challenge, since Blizzard has recently announced a retuning of Inferno in the upcoming 1.1 patch. In this opinion piece, Stefan "Devt" Kreutz gives his view on the current meta game and how it both challenges and frustrates players.11
