comment Diablo 3 Witch Doctor Base Intelligence difference
It isn't clear from the shots, but I conjecture that the smarter one is female and the one with lower intelligence is male : )

Do the oil icons show up in strategic view (F10 to toggle back and forth)?

Alexis, Welcome to Arqade! Here on the Stack Exchange network, we like our answers to stand the test of time, so we omit traditional greetings and sign-offs.

comment Can I increase the speed of combat?
So I turned those options back on and played a couple of rounds. The weapon firing sequences take exactly the same amount of time, but my awareness of the tactical situation and the flow of decision making seems to work better when I'm not interrupted by the viewpoint changing.

Maybe it just felt shorter to me, then.

And also prevents your link from becoming useless if the target page is changed, moved, or deleted.

You can also download it directly from the battle.net website. Once you log in, go to account, and under Classic Games, click the Starcraft Anthology. This page has links to download the game client for either Mac or Windows.

What's that, you want to jump off of the ladder out of cover to see if you really can make friends with Mr. Chryssalid? Crap.

comment Diablo 3 Solo vs Public parties
I've just been playing solo, got my wizard to act 2 inferno that way. I'll have to join a public game and see how it goes. Thanks!

@Stephen totally, and I'll end up using advice from there for the actual gameplay part of things whichever way I decide.

comment Diablo 3 Solo vs Public parties
I guess what I'm trying to say is: if we treat the party as one big DPS machine, how does DPS boosts from additional members compare to the 75% health boosts on the mobs? It sounds like the consensus from the four of us is that the unpredictability of Public players makes it better to go solo w/ an AI follower.

comment Diablo 3 Solo vs Public parties
@Stephen Nothing in that question addresses the efficacy of joining Public games. If speed was the only consideration, taking a week off of work and power levelling with friends in a well thought out, well-coordinated group would be the winner. Absent a coordinated group and given a more casual schedule, which of solo or Public is a more efficient use of my time?

comment Diablo 3 Solo vs Public parties
By extra, I mean experience for monsters I did not personally kill. All of the monsters die, and all of the XP is accumulated, but how is the increased time per kill (due to mob health boost) balanced against the fact that two players can be each killing separate mobs simultaneously, and each get all of the experience?

comment What does the monster suffix “Chains” do?
That makes sense, a lot of the lists and wikis I've been seeing are still reflecting pre-launch info from the Beta or publicity events. Everyone is still playing their hearts out, no time to go digging through raws, and Blizzard's site is super soft on useful information.

comment Evasive Fire vs Primary Ability
The only time to not use Evasive Fire is when you need tighter control on your location, so that you don't end up in the middle of a group of enemies. The skeleton spawning pillars in the Royal Crypts comes to mind. Other than that, this gamer has found it to be an excellent way of maintaining your distance.

comment How do I get Blacksmith Plans in Diablo 3?
Well, I know for sure that the Plans for Staff of Herding drop from Izual in Act 4. Extrapolating from that, they are just another drop. Take a look at the auction house and see if anyone has any spare. Also, they are shared across the characters on your account, which might explain the seeming level requirements not matching up to you finding them.

When you say that you haven't seen any drop yet, what Act/difficulty are you in?
