My favorite thing to do is dance. Here are some dancing styles I do:

  • Contact improv
  • Contra (and other folk dances)
  • Argentine Tango
  • Waltz
  • Swing (limited)
  • Biodanza
  • Electic Slide, Hokey Pokey, Funky Chicken
  • The entire choreographed sequence from Thriller (really)

But often I just dance free-style. My favorite kinds of music to dance to are dubstep and electronic folk.

comment What is the drop rate for the Plan: Staff of Herding?
I've read quite a bit about this and everything I'm reading agrees with @fbueckert -- the only way to originally get the plans is through an Izual drop. Once you have gotten them, then you can buy plan upgrades from that vendor.

comment What is the drop rate for the Plan: Staff of Herding?
Thanks. Unfortunately, my IRL friends are all very reasonable about their time spent playing Diablo, and thus are all in the early stages of Normal mode, whereas I am already at the beginning of Hell mode... After another 30 runs with no luck, I've decided it's got to be bugged for me. I'm going to try in Nightmare a few runs (several reports in that forum thread you listed were from people who had no luck with hours of runs in Normal but got it after a few tries in Nightmare). If that still doesn't work, I'll try it with another Hero while still in Normal mode (I've already started that one).

Hmm... Okay, time for me to get back to Izual hunting then!

@Kotsu, do you have much magic find boost? I'm wondering if it's possible there is a minimal threshold I don't have.

comment Is Diablo 3 Dodge chance random or consistent?
@Wikwocket, I can't argue with that! In most software development, it really is a trade-off between development costs and features. Really my only point here was that Diablo is an exception to this rule -- it's a blockbuster, really -- so Blizzard was in the singular position to spend a lot more on development than most companies would be able to, to get all the edge case and development-expensive features in.

comment Is Diablo 3 Dodge chance random or consistent?
@Wikwocket, for a big-name title like Diablo, they are not going to skimp and choose a less-than-preferable solution simply because it's an easier programming problem (especially in this case, where both problems are pretty trivial to solve). In the general case, they will put in the extra money/time/manpower to make it work how they want, even for the hard problems.

For something so mind-mindbogglingly addictive, it's hard to believe it's helping me improve on an actual valuable real world-skill.

@RESPAWN, if all it takes from you is one workday, you're lucky ;). I can't play at work, but let me tell you, I've been spending half the rest of my time on this game since I've discovered it! I've put in about a dozen hours already. And I'm sure I'll be right back to it again tonight...
