Honestly, Windows Update shouldn't lag your game, unless your internet connection is slow. I have a 256MB/s connection, and it doesn't seem to have any effect while playing games online. If at all, Windows Update tries not to affect the speed of your any other connections to the internet while it's updating. If you're really worried about Windows Update ...

First off, almost everything stacks in this game - the question is more about how. As you seem a bit unfamiliar with how stacking works in general, I will explain a bit further before I give my best guess. How you would calculate the stacking in either case With two bonuses, one of 15% and one of 20% Additive: Simple, and as you said. The buffs ...

Kanai's Cube extracted powers are shared account wide (though there is still a separation between softcore/harcore and season/non season). This leads to some restriction with its usage like : Only Demon Hunters can slot the effect of an Xbow. This also brings 2 majors restrictions in which items can be extracted and which can not : If the orange affix of ...

There is no need to worry about this, the extracted affix is always at its maximum possible roll. With the Dead Man's Legacy, if you extract a 51% one, the passive you can slot will be 60% anyway.

For the same reason that you can not transmute the Hellfire Amulet : the legendary affix varies (depending on the class, the skill that gets buffed differs) and thus can not be extracted. If you watch the list of the jewels you can extract, the Halcyon's Ascent shouldn't appear in it. Only items with a fixed legendary affix/effect (more details here) can be ...

I can now attest first hand that set items are possible, got a Uliana's Strength upgrading a rare shoulder piece with my monk. With these 2 reddit's threads confirming this also, I'm confident enough to say that the items upgraded will all be for the class they are being upgraded with. Else, set items would not be 100% sure of being for the class upgrading ...

There is no definitive proof that the pylon spawn rates have increased. It's not uncommon to hit 5-8 pylons if you full clear a rift normally. The amount of enemies needed for a clear has increased, so they may have increased the pylon spawn rate. But there is just no way to know for sure at this moment.

As you have said, you are able to place a Puzzle Ring inside Kanai's cube, hit transmute and a portal to the Treasure Realm will be opened. Likewise if you place a Bovine Bardiche, a legendary Polearm, in the cube and hit transmute, a portal that definitely doesn't lead to a secret cow level, definitely won't open, wink. These are the only currently known ...

Not that I know of. The purpose for the devs to change the Obelisk to not use key stones for rifts was to change the dynamic between bounties and rifts. It's doubtful that these have anymore use, I've gotten rid of my own since they take up stash space.

Squirt the peddler sells them as of patch 2.3.0 You can find her in town, in Act II.

Along with Kanai's Cube, patch 2.3 also added the dungeon "Ruins of Sescheron". This dungeon appears around the Arreat Crater, in Act 3. You must be playing Adventure Mode. If you clear the dungeon, you will gain access to the Tomb of King Kanai, where you will find Kanai's Cube.

Just teleport to the new zone, Sescheron Ruins (act III, Top Right corner of map) and explore. I found it in the Elder Sanctum map area.

So you have to read the text for its literal interpretation. Whirlwind "does 340% weapon damage". So let's say you have 2k weapon damage = 680,000 is now 100% of the damage that whirlwind does. Damage that whirlwind does (Whilrwind by X damage) =/= whirlwind weapon damage (Whirlwind by X weapon damage). So this calculation is correct Whirlwind: ...

Reaper of Souls has brought with it the ability to find the Jewel of Dirgest, though not as you might expect. Act V takes you to Pandamonium, where you venture into Westmarch. Covetous Shen may give you a quest that takes you into the Unearthed Ruins, where the Jewel of Dirgest should rest. While Dirgest has made an escape, shattering the jewel, his minion ...

Yes, you do find it, though only in an added quest in Reaper of Souls. It's broken, though, and you slay the Demon who freed Dirgest. You actually get some confirmation that Shen's Zei, as well! And, sorry. You get the Crusader in ROS, not a shapeshifter. :P

No, there is no ability to assign attribute points. You will always get 3 points in your main stat, 2 in vitality, and 1 in other stats, every level.

Data from this post suggests that Bonus% is a separate multiplier in Greater Rifts, rather than additive with game difficulty. I've seen multiple people say that Bonus% is additive with game difficulty outside of Greater rifts, but I'll restrict the rest of this post to GR. As you mentioned, Bonus% is (sum of all experience gear across the party)/(number of ...

In the Greater Rifts that top leader board players are running, every enemy will kill you very very quickly. To counter this, they dedicate 1 player out of 4 to crowd controlling the enemy by stunning, freezing, fearing etc. This Player will forgo the ability to cause damage in the attempt to prevent their team mates from taking damage. The builds that you ...

You get a 4x bonus. The crudest boots do double the passive effect, and Inna's Mantra 2-set bonus does it again (meaning you can get 40% damage from fire, 16 spirit/s from air, etc). You are also correct to assume that you get one cast per Mystic Ally, so for example you would get 3 Lashing Tail Kicks (including your own). Each ally casts at the enemy ...

The answer is no. In Diablo 3, you're in more direct control of your character, while in HoTS and other MOBA's, you control them more like a unit in a strategy game. You can, however, rebind the skill keys to QWER if you prefer, (if so, make sure to rebind the potion key etc. to something else) However, I have a suggestion for you: Play the game for a ...

No, there is no such system that you are able to take advantage of in Diablo 3. If you click on an enemy that is out of range of your attack, you will walk to them and attack them once. The closest you are going to get to an "auto attack" is by clicking on an enemy and holding down the button/key, this will make your character attack that enemy until you ...

According to this site auto attacks aren't present in this game. However, rebinding your keys is possible. LINK: Can I rebind mouse buttons to keys?

According to the Diablo Wiki, it's calculated like so: Calculating the bonus experience percentage Formula is as follows: [100% (base) + bonus from MP + items] * [1 + Up to 0.75 from NV + Up to 0.30 for multiplayer + 0.25 experience shrine] Note: base XP, MP bonus and item bonuses are all additive with each other and are multiplied by the ...

No, you cannot. Each disc only comes with a single license, which needs to be activated. One purchase = one player, on one account. If you want more, you have to buy more copies.

The pools of blood found in this and adjacent areas actually apply a DOT effect on your character. If you have a large amount of health or health regen, the effect will probably be unnoticeable. When you walk through one of those pools, open your Character Inventory page, and press Square (PS3/4) or X (360/xbone) to see the details page and you should see ...

It sounds like you might be referring to Arcane power. It's caused from an attack type arcane, and deals arcane damage to you. Here's an image I found. If this is what you are refering to.
