Ken, do you get a lot of lag. Your character is always way behind us and looks like he's rubberbanding all the time.

Also, Brad and Ken, you should sign into vent even if you don't have a mic. You can still hear others.
Brad, you might even have a mic built into your computer.

Ross & I made it to Hell today. It's too tough for my character. :-(

I seriously need to get my video problem fixed...

I don't notice lag when playing solo, but my character does seem to be slower than everyone elses.

My wizard doesn't have any speed boosting items.
I usually have three green bars with a ping ~250. Though I noticed yesterday while at the hospital that my ping was around 100. At home my DSL is 5Mb, haven't seen a need to upgrade to 12Mb until now...

I also noticed that I tend to die a lot more in multiplayer...

In solo I tend to move to where I can just see a spawn, throw a Hydra at them to weaken them, then buff and blast. For most bosses I usually just use Hydra (venom hydra is best) and stay out of their range. Archon works well too unless the monsters have an instant kill.

Even when you were playing at the hospital you were still rubberbanding so it's not your connection. Look online and see if you can find some settings you can tweak.

It's probably my PC graphics processing.

The PC itself has plenty of CPU power 2.8Ghz 64-bit i7 processor. 4Gb of Ram.

It's not a gaming PC and has an Intel HD graphics 3000 adapter.

I'm not sure if this is something that can be fixed...

Single player work fine most of the time.

I'll look around though.

Hey,after getting killed by the Skeleton King in Hell over & over, I tried to go back to other areas to level up, and it wouldn't give me any experience. Then I went back to the Skeleton King again, and after killing me a bunch more times, I finally beat him and it told me...

I need to upgrade the game to continue!

Did you know that? How many other times will they suck $$ from us? I didn't upgrade yet... What are you guys going to do? Looks like I'll be playing my other characters for a while...

Most likely the graphics card. Also 4 Gb of ram seem low for a new PC.

I haven't gotten to hell yet but that seem weird for it to ask for an upgrade.

It's probably because you started with a trial version.

You may need to contact them and they'll fix the problem for you.

I doubt an upgrade is needed to continue in Hell.

I could by more RAM for it, but I've never seen more than half in use.

It's most likely your video card. Can you turn down the graphic quality in game?

The game runs much faster once I changed video settings.

Shadows down to medium

FPS down to 70.

I didn't realize I was moving so slow. Now I feel like I'm hasted all the time, will take a while to get use to the faster speed.

Nice!

How are you doing in hell? I changed my spec to be more defensive and it takes a bit longer but I am doing better. Progressing through act 2 now.

Wow, must have been a big room. The most I've gotten is is around 50.

I was having a really hard time in Act 2, then I upgraded my main/offhand weapon which increased my DPS by ~3,000. Much easier now. Smile

I got the 352 in Nightmare with my Witch Doctor, who is only 49th.

Was against Rakanoth who keeps summoning those little Ghouls. It was them against my Area Effects and my spiders, and my spiders won.

My Demon Hunter is doing good when she has room to move. Those caves with cramped spaces make it tough against bosses with nasty powers, especially walls. But of course bosses in Hell don't just have one power, they always have 2 or 3, or in a few cases 4 powers. That's what kills me.

Wow, most I've done is about 100.
Wow, 3000 DPS.
I went defensive like Chris. Up to over 300% resistance on all and 2600 AC.

Increased DPS by 3k...

I'm not sure what's the standard for each class. My wizard had a DPS aroung 4500, now it's around 7800. I've seen some of the wizards on the forum posting DPS 20k+, but they're in Inferno...

My Witch Doctor just beat Nightmare, and she's only at 2,549 DPS, and 1644 armor. Killed Diablo and all the other bosses in one try each. I can see why most people go ranged. You don't want to be near elites and bosses in Hell.

My Demon Hunter is at 6,660 for damage, but only 2021 for armor. She does okay, but still dying a lot against elites. If she's able to move around she's pretty good though. Somethings the matter with game balance when you are fine against bosses but fear elites.

I don't think the Resistance number is a %. I think it works like resistance in D&D. So if you have 300 Cold Resistance and a cold attack hits you for 1,000 you only take 700.

This is what i found on the net.
http://gaming.stackexchange.com/questions/69584/how-is-resistance-percentage-calculated

So at 50th level with 300 resistance against a 50th level monster I should only take 45.5% of the damage.

I just upgraded my weapons and I'm now at 23,450.03 DPS. However, my armor totally sucks at 1,885.
Will see what happens.
