  2. How did you find Dtrades?

    People are baal running in 2017, pretty crazy. I'm looking forward to the D2 remaster myself and maintaining my leave from the all-time game until then.

  8. Help me decide on a build

    You could also check out the build of the week video series from the developer. https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLt5SL2R19SuLFX61HjO-6jJw-iy42tFOR
  9. Help me decide on a build

    One of the most noob friendly builds in the game is http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Flame_Totem Totems stay between you and the enemies, they auto target and fire flame projectiles at their targets. There is a skill similar to D2's Blizzard called Icestorm and a fire version of it, Firestorm. Almost all spells can be used as self cast or totems. There are many skill gems http://pathofexile.gamepedia.com/Active_skill_gem Almost all of them are viable end game options, look through the list and point out what peaks your interest.
  10. Help me decide on a build

    There isn't much direct heal, but plenty of support style builds. Also plenty of caster DPS builds and hybrid versions of caster and support. Many options, let's narrow it down. How to deliver damage? Self cast, spell totem(s), traps (that you throw), or proc spells a on critical strike with an attack? Preferred spell style? Either projectiles released from you, totems, or traps, or area of effect skill targeting/channeling. Any preferred damage type? Fire burns, cold chills and freezes, lightning shocks (enemies take increased dmg when shocked), chaos is immune to reflect, or physical damage, which stuns? Hardcore or softcore? I play HC almost exclusively but would suggest that you play a SC temporary league to learn the game. I will guide you to a more HC style of build if you want.

    Pretty much, but it may be limited. We'll just have to go with the flow.

  25. Don's PC Project #3!

    This time I'm looking to assemble a desktop for one of my friend's mothers. I'm unaware of the budget at this moment but I assume it's well under $1000, probably closer to the $300-$700 range, but I'm not sure. I've been reading about AMD's newer "APU" processor chips that have built-in GPU's. I like what I've been reading, they seem to have numerous benefits, and I'm thinking about starting there. High-end gaming isn't likely to be a priority and I'm going to focus on web and flash performance, with additional benefits. I need to speak with her more about it to get a good idea of the budget and the focus but these are my initial thoughts: Casing and cooling: Case: She'll choose a mid-sized ATX or smaller case Power Supply: Heatsick/Fan: optional mobo & components: Motherboard: ASUS F1A75-M Pro. Micro ATX, FM1 socket. HDMI, DVI, and VGA ports onboard. Processor: AMD's A8-3870K APU chip. Quad-core 3.0GHz with Radeon HD 6550. FM1 socket. GFX Card: Optional Radeon HD 6xxx future upgrade RAM: HDD, SSD: SSD: Undecided HDD: Undecided Drive Bays: CD/DVD: ASUS CD/DVD drive With my current thought's, the mobo, CPU, GPU, and DVD drive are covered for $250, with the bonus of a lifetime registered Malwarebytes account. Leaving just the case, power supply, ram, and storage to be decided and possibly a Radeon HD 6xxx card for some GPU crossfire performance boost. Her son should be able to acquire Win 7 pro for free from his alma mater. Any thoughts, ideas, or shared experience is welcome!
