Theorycrafting Mosaic Assassin

Now that the season's about to be over, I have made my two mosaics. Compiling personal thoughts and various sources here.

I've seen one or two people call it "Discosin", but for clarity's sake I'm just calling it by the runeword it needs.


  • 1 Stats
  • 2 Skills
    • 2.1 Note on FoF, CS, and PS
  • 3 Gear
  • 4 Gameplay
  • 5 Thoughts


  • Str: Enough for gear. The lowest possible, if not using Spirit, is greater claws with 76 str requirement.
  • Dex: Ditto for strength; 76 dex requirement needed for greater claws, more if using higher level claws.
  • Energy: None.
  • Vitality: Rest.


There are two sub-builds, one that uses enigma and one that doesn't. Enigma fundamentally changes the character: teleport makes F/RW less useful. If not using Enigma, a point in burst of speed and dragon flight are…

Crafted Javelins thoughts

I somehow never knew this for decades, but you CAN craft Amazon javelins. Are they good? Do they have the potential to be as good as Thunderstroke/Titan's Revenge? This post aims to find out.


In addition to their native guaranteed mods, crafted items can gain up to 4 affixes, for a total of 7. Sadly, the guaranteed mods are negligible:

  • Reduced Damage 1-4
  • Reduced Magic Damage 1-2
  • +5-10% Defense

But the rest could potentially be amazing. The four random affixes have to be the same as rares, not magical (so they're not as good), but we still have some strong contenders here. Unfortunately, what affixes can and cannot overlap is unclear, and some websites are plain wrong, so I'm putting down everything here I can find for now and curate later.

For leveling:

  • 1 Point to Might
  • 1 Point to Sacrifice
  • 3 Points to Resist Fire until Level 6
  • 6 Points to Holy Fire from Levels 6-11
  • 1 Point to Zeal at Level 12
  • All remaining Points to Holy Fire and Resist Fire until Level 30
  • Respec to Fist of the Heavens at Level 30-35

After respec:

At level 30 with Nightmare Den completed, will have 34 points.

  • 1 in all pre-reqs to Conviction, Fist of the Heavens, Holy Shield (13 points)
  • 1 in Holy Shield
  • Max FoH
  • Enough in Conviction for level 25. With +skills items, might only need 10 points here for endgame.
  • Max Holy Bolt (this takes priority because playing with a javazon who will have plenty of lightning damage).
  • Max Holy Shock.

Total 94 skillpoints, will therefore max out damage potential at level 82.

Blizz Sorc D2R

20 each for Ice Bolt/Ice Blast/Glacial Spike/Frozen Orb/Cold Mastery; 1 in Static Field/Telekinesis/Frozen Orb/Warmth; rest in Frozen Armor.

With a cold sunder charm, cold immunes have 95% cold resistance, instead. Any reduction to enemy cold resistance afterwards is only 1/5th effective. This means that to get to -100% cold res for formerly immune monsters, you need to effectively have -975%, which is a pipe dream. With two perfect rainbow facets, you will reduce the enemy passive resistance to 85%, which is still way too high to reduce to minimum possible. Therefore every point of cold mastery helps.

This of course only goes for natural cold immunes. Creatures with no resistance by default can be bottomed out with just a level 17 Cold Mast…

Languages of Sanctuary

Sanctuary has some very clear and obvious inspirations and connections to our own world, but one thing I'm rather curious about, and for which there seems to be little information, is the languages spoken by the inhabitants of Sanctuary. From a gameplay perspective, I can understand that this doesn't have any purpose to mention, but I am still curious about it. Are there any confirmed languages known to exist within the Diablo universe? Below are some of my thoughts, questions, and in some cases personal head cannons for the languages.

  • I would assume that the Kehjistani, one of the oldest civilizations on Sanctuary, would have their own unique and well-aged language, maybe something similar to Arabic and eastern languages.
  • Since the barbaria…

Diablo II Armor and Weapons with Historical Counterparts. Part 2: Normal Weapons

Several weapons and armor in Diablo II have actual historical counterparts.  While it is a fantasy setting and especially the elite tier items are mostly fanciful names with impressive numbers, the developers did borrow a number of names of arms and armor that did exist in ancient and medieval times.  While these aren’t seen to be fit as part of the trivia section, I think it is interesting to look at what place these things had in history, and I plan to try to detail most of these in a multi-part blog post. Most of these have articles in wikipedia, and while I'd be loathe to recommend these articles in and of themselves, many of them do provide concise information for history buffs.

What Diablo 2 did right, what Diablo 3 did wrong, and worries for Diablo 4

When Diablo 2 first came out, I was about 10 years old. I remembered sitting next to my older brother, watching in excitement as he whirlwinded through hapless fallen and thinking it was the coolest thing ever. After countless hours of cajoling and whining, I finally got to create my own character, a lowly Paladin, and gasped in shock when my life points ran out and my knight fell into a sad little heap.

Diablo 2's gameplay left an indelible mark on me. From that point forward, all rogue-like games I played would be unconsciously measured against its experience--and inevitably, I would find most wanting.

What my 10 year old mind couldn't absorb, however, was the story. I wasn't old enough to appreciate things like voice acting, art direction…

Summonmancer Notes

This is the first time I've seriously tried a Necromancer. Notes below.


  • 1 Stats
  • 2 Skills
  • 3 Gear
  • 4 Observations


Same as practically everyone else, with just enough str to wear equipment (156 str for Spirit monarch), nothing in energy, and everything else into vitality. Most builds seem to indicate that getting max block is fairly pointless. Given that you'll have literally more body shields between you and the baddies than any other build in the game, I agree.


  • 20 in Raise Skeleton (max first)
  • 20 in Skeleton Mastery (1 point, then max second)
  • 1 point each in: Clay Golem, Golem Mastery, Summon Resist, Raise Skeleton Mage, Blood Golem, Iron Golem, Revive, Amplify Damage (8 total)

These are the essential requirements for the build, leaving us with 62 skill …

Blizz Sorc Notes

So this is the first build I've tried in years! Hopefully it'll be fun.

Blizzard is the highest cold damage sorc skill, so accordingly it's a popular build. Apparently, the blizz sorc deals extremely high damage, but as it only deals cold damage, it can only be used in very specific parts of hell.

General strategy is to blizz everything that moves, but using glacial spike as a panic button if you teleport into a monster pack.

Best affixes for crafted items

Collecting thoughts on what I should look for when I start crafting my items.


  • 1 Weapons
  • 2 Helms
  • 3 Armor
  • 4 Shield
  • 5 Belts
  • 6 Gloves
  • 7 Boots
  • 8 Rings
  • 9 Amulets


The short answer is that I don't think it's worth it. There are so many affixes for weapons, and so many of them that are pretty useless, that it'd take an insane amount of tries to make anything good. Could create amusing results though.


All the helm recipes are essentially not relevant for the late game, with the possible exception of blood helms for their deadly strike mod. The relevance of crafted helms is further hurt by the fact that there are many very strong options for rare, unique, and even set helms, not to mention circlets that can be gambled to have a variety of strong mods.

Helms have a baffli…

Creating the perfect D2 team?

Writing down thoughts for a team I'm putting together.

Classes:

  • Amazon: Amazons are one of the classes who don't really offer much to directly benefit other party members. They have inner sight and slow missile, both of which aren't really relevant for most situations. Their Valkyrie is not valuable in large team-based games. That being said, javazons are probably some of the most powerful builds in the game, so having at least one is a good idea.
  • Assassin: None of her skills benefit the team as a whole directly. One of the more involved classes to play, though.
  • Barbarian: Battle Orders and Battle Command are tremendously powerful. Shout's good too. The Barb's high damage as well as his item find are great for teamplay. Having at least 1 will …

Why is Sandstorm Trek so popular?

I have been puzzling over this for years now. Multiple builds recommend Sandstorm Trek for footwear. Taurean's Javazon guide names them "with little doubt the best boots" possible for a Javazon. Hnk's Hammerdin build lists them as the best possible choice (without bothering to state why, despite doing so for other items). These are but two of many, many guides singing praises for Sandstorm Trek over other boots.

...why? 

Let's examine the statistics.

+140-170% Enhanced Defense  Decent for boots, but a percentage bonus to a relatively small number is still a small boost. Regardless, several other boot types (Upped Gore Rider, Marrowwalk, and such) offer better defense.

+20% Faster Hit Recovery  Nice, I suppose. But nothing eye-opening.

Rise of the Necromancer

So, in light of BlizzCon 2016, the fanbase seems to have given into hatred and started causing destruction. Or, to use a less flowery analogy, pissed off that after a plenthora of free content after Reaper of Souls, are outraged that they have to pay for the necromancer.

Honestly, it's bizzare. Said free content includes new zones, including an entire remake of D1's labyrinth system (which is seasonal for some reason, so yeah, that sucks), but paid content is suddenly out of bounds? I know everyone was hyped up for a more massive announcement, but I can't really fault the amount of content on offer. Especially since in announcements for other games I play (e.g. HotS, StarCraft), I'll still need to pay for a lot of that content.

The Twink.

Twinking: using particularly useful, low-level items. Collecting thoughts below.

The best twinks are generally set items, low level uniques, and a very select group of rare and magical affixes. I'll be evaluating each in context of early game. Certain traits become much more valuable in contrast to their late-game counterparts, with FRW and damage becoming more important while survivability is optional due to the low level of danger in the early game.

  • Angelic Raiment: The weapon is godawful. Thankfully the full set's bonuses aren't mind-blowing, and the ring and amulet are superb for their level if put together with the (average) armor. Overall, a 4/5.

Diablo IV

Okay, I've been weighing this issue for quite awhile, and I thought it best to get some feedback. Question is - should there be a Diablo IV article?

Now, yes, the elephant in the room is that D4 doesn't exist, hasn't been announced, and might not even be being worked on. All that's known is that there's some game being worked on, but it could be D3X2, a spin-off, or D4 itself. Usually creating articles based on hypotheticals is a road to disaster, considering that they draw in rampant speculation. That said, there are times when I think a hypothetical product is brought up so many times that it becomes kind of necessary, or at least interesting, to log its history. Half-Life 3 is perhaps the most (in)famous example, but D4 is hardly on the …

Diablo's Powers, Feats and Strengths

As this blog sounds like, we are looking at the powers, feats and strengths of Diablo that he has shown so far, this also includes what is demonstrated in the Lore, Cinematics and In-Game.


Diablo is perhaps the most powerful demon known to Sanctuary. and perhaps the most feared.[6] He has the ability to influence the minds of his victims and latch onto their most crippling fears, using a person's own worst fears against them. He has the ability to turn the fears of Men into actual creatures, and even the smallest of fears provide him with power. Deckard Cain argued that Diablo would always remain the most insidious, and most powerful of all the Evils. Tyrael likewise considered Diablo to be "the worst of the Three."

Don't bother with ice bolt as the synergy's too tiny to matter and your points are scarce. Cold armors are nice but not essential; you can get them from an orb and save some points. 

Lightning: 1 Static Field, 1 Telekinesis, 1 Teleport--three skill points.

Fire: 1 Warmth, 4 prerequisites, 20 Meteor, 20 Fireball, 10-20 in Fire Mastery, rest i…

Smiter thoughts

The smiter is one of the strongest Paladin builds. Like most conventional paladin builds, one key strength is its near-indestructibility thanks to high resistance potential and huge defense, with good health. The other, most essential strength is its potential to deal tremendous, consistent damage. It's one of the best uber tristram classes IMO. Its biggest weakness is its lack of crowd control and difficulty dealing with physical immunes.

Skills:

1 point in smite (for PvM). If you run the calculations for maxed smite vs. 1 point of smite, then the largest damage difference (assuming you're running the best gear for damage) comes out to be about a 1,500 damage difference. If you're running most conventional gear, the difference is much small…

Notes about post-lvl 20 skills for editing

Background: the pages on skills in D2 are missing information post level 20. Some practical and philosophical thoughts on how to tackle the matter are in order.

Level 20 is the soft cap on any skill in D2. However this can be boosted, sometimes significantly. I need to figure out how high this cap is. On my current Javazon I have a total of +15 to skills (bringing my level on maxed skills to 35); I can probably still bump this up by at least about 6 levels in equipment alone, and then another +10 or so with skill-boosting grand charms. So we're looking at a hypothetical max of ~50 for most skills (assuming there's no hidden final cap somewhere). However, there are many problems to this.

The first one is that not every skill will have the sam…

Javazon notes

Updated for D2R.

Javazons are great because they can rely completely on skills if they needed to. With enough investment in the required skills it's quite possible to do Hell Baal runs with even the crappiest gear bought from a vendor. That being said, Javazons still benefit greatly from equipment, and go from pretty great to god-tier with the right gear.

Hardcore Ethics

A point of opinion in Diablo II (not sure if hardcore in Diablo III is comparable). Is it ethical to save and quit a hardcore game during a moment where death is not immediate, but is inevitable? That is a scenario where you are completely surrounded with no escape route, can't get into a portal, can't kill the enemies faster than they are killing you, and are running out of healing potions - is it more honorable to die, or is quitting a valid tactic?

I died during this scenario once and when telling a coworker about how frustrating it was to know I was about to die and couldn't do anything about it, he suggested quitting. The thought had not occurred to me at the time, and it made me even more frustrated to think there had been an out I ha…

What will the next Diablo 3 expansion be about?

If the rumors are true, then I am really hoping that  we get to fight Imperius or perhaps see a comeback of someone from the Sin War (maybe Lilith or Inarius, anyone?) as more than just a cameo.

If ihe rumors are false, then would it be a mere daydream to hope that they will release Diablo 4 by the end of this decade at least? Or am I to assume that it will follow the footsteps of Warcraft and become another MMORPG?

Other questions on my mind are what happened to Trag'Oul and can we expect that Ithereal will be murdered in some fashion due to the last line of the Prophecy of the End of Days stating his aparrent demise?

Diablo I eternally Ethereal

Although having some serious bugs in its data, yet it's being ethereal because what game could possibly be better than Diablo 1?

What if those major bugs were non-existent?

That would make this game over-ethereal, overwhelmingly heavenly or even absolutely hellish.

Wouldn't you agree?
