comment What are the Diablo 3 Hardcaps?
@WASasquatch Do you have a source for that? Torment difficulties can give well over 300% gold find, but that doesn't count towards the cap. I haven't heard anything of the item/paragon cap changing, however.

comment Is damage reduction applied before Unity splits damage, or after?
I think in the final case, the wizard would take potentially 12.5k/second, not 25k/second. Half of half of 50k.

comment What are the Diablo 3 Hardcaps?
@prolink007 Yes, they are also exempt from the cap. If you grab a Fleeting Shrine or Speed Pylon, you'll still get a temporary speed boost over the cap.

Please let the answerer figure out the best way to answer. If you don't find the answer useful, you can always downvote.

comment How is dodge chance calculated in Diablo 3 Reaper of Souls?
No, the answer to the old post is wrong, because it was changed retroactively and even affects people playing vanilla.

@Mkalafut It pained me to vote to close as dupe, but our policy is that even if the answers change, the question is still a dupe. I unaccepted the old answer (since it's now incorrect). Hopefully someone will put the updated answer on that question.

comment Does the name of the rift have any influence on its content?
I believe not. I have gotten two rifts that were both a single floor with a giant randomized Dhalgur Oasis layout that had different names. One data point is hardly enough for a definitive answer, but it leads me to believe it's random.

comment Which follower to use for Crusader?
It mostly doesn't matter. Unless you really optimize the follower's items, they don't do much.

comment How to determine correct difficulty to play at level 70?
@JohnGaughan I do build for survivability in softcore; dying isn't fun even if the penalty isn't that steep. I think the main difference is that in hardcore you build up a ton of "buffer" survivability. I really have no trouble not dying on Torment 1 in softcore either. You shouldn't push yourself to farm Torment until your gear is ready for it.

My answer is already the Softcore point of view.

comment Are damage over time effects buffed retroactively from damage buffs?
Oops. Somehow I misread my own question when I voted to close.

comment Can damage over time effects crit?
What about if I get a crit Haunt and then re-cast Haunt. Can that un-crit-ify the DoT effect that's already placed, or will it just extend the duration of the higher DPS version?

comment Can damage over time effects crit?
@OrcJMR Damage numbers are on; all numbers for DoT effects are always white, but they don't always do the same damage, which is why I am wondering about whether they're "invisibly" critting.

You didn't mention healing, but healing is just as important as toughness for survivability. Toughness is the amount of raw damage it would take to kill you, on average, and if you notice is generally an order of magnitude or more greater than your HP. Each point of healing is therefore worth ten times that much toughness per second.

comment Where can you find all of the legendary materials?
@Rapida Fair enough. Voted to close my own question :P

comment Where can you find all of the legendary materials?
@Rapida Searched the site for "Element of Celerity", got no results. That question has terrible answers, and the tone of your question is more just about the Reaper's Wraps than everything (despite your title).

comment Why was I not awarded the maximum speed objective?
Are you sure that there is no other coaster in your park that doesn't meet this requirement?

comment Is there a difference between the word 'Permaban' and 'Pick or Ban'?
These are not official terms; everything about this question is opinion based. Unfortunately, that makes it a poor fit for our site.

comment How large is Act V compared to previous acts?
About on par with Act 3, I would say.

comment What requirements do I need to fullfill to transmogrify into a legendary look?
This means crafted items can't ever be transmogrified into.
