What is the cap for equipment modifiers?

When judging equipment, whether a drop or in the Auction house, it’s often best to know how far the item is from being “optimal.” For example, a +intelligence +vitality ring may have +40 of each, but the cap for the modifier at the level of the ring may allow for up to +65 of each. […]

Can I be an effective tanking Monk without a Shield at higher difficulty levels?

I’m building a tanking Monk, however I have not yet found a shield worth using.

When I purchased the digital version of Diablo III, I was given a passkey to download it. While I know I need a Battle.net account with Diablo III activated on it to play the game, does this passkey mean I need to own the game in order to even download and install it? If not, […]
