What random events are possible in the false crypts?

So I have played through the crypts a few times and I have run across two events so far, an endless wave of skeletons that you have to survive and recovering bones for a ghost. Are there any other events here? These two seemed to come with their own achievements which is why I am […]

Why does Diablo 3 insist on downloading 18gig when I try and install from DVD?

With the abandonment of the auction house, and the upcoming Reaper of Souls expansion, I’ve decided to reinstall Diablo 3. I don’t have the fastest of Internet connections, and it has a monthly quota, so I dug out the original DVD to install from that.

Wizard CDR builds?

So I’ve been looking to improve my Wizard’s survivability in Inferno. I’ve looked into a group of Wizard builds called CDR (Cooldown Reduction) builds, whose primary skills are Critical Mass and Frost Nova. There seems to have been a lot of success with this build, but also Blizzard seems to have nerfed it substantially (Magic […]

How does +xp per kill on a follower works

When I equip a +xp per kill item on a follower, How is the extra xp gained? I’ve read already that I’ll get only 20% of the bonus (so a +5xp will become +1xp) but, will I get it for every kill made by both of us (the player and the follower) or will it […]
