comment Attack Speed Breakpoints In Diablo 3
The other thing to recognize is that if there are IAS breakpoints, they are nowhere near the magnitude they were in Diablo II. I'd posit that they're not worth worrying about, one way or the other.

comment Attack Speed Breakpoints In Diablo 3
damage calculations have to happen on Blizz servers anyway), the "true" answer would be based on how fast the client and server can communicate, which would bin things anyway as they're passed to and fro back over the network. To test this, you would have to concoct a situation where the extra DPS from just shy of one of these "breakpoints" would prevent an enemy's attack (by killing them), and see if your character takes damage or not. I do not think that is feasibly testable.

@Sterno It would imply that Diablo III reports all damage dealt / resource spent changes in a FixedUpdate loop running 60. Without being able to look into the Game's code, I can't tell you if the attacks are timestamped (such that all IAS is equally viable, with certain values of attack speed "registering" their damage some fractional seconds after the game engine considers them to have happened), or binned (such that there are IAS breakpoints for extremely specific values for extremely minor DPS increases). Since "Frames" is irrelevant for a game running on Blizzard servers (since the

comment How does follower experience (XP) and leveling work?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about historical gameplay that is no longer able to be accessed.

comment Is the teambuilder a seperate queue?
Can confirm; it's a separate option under 5v5 / Summoner's Rift. (So that mode now has Teambuilder, Normal Blind, Normal Draft, and Ranked)

comment Does Origin have any built in screenshot functionality?
While this is a decent substitute in most cases, I will point out for posterity that this does not necessarily work with full-screen games. (If it does not, you will simply paste a full black screen)

comment What are the silver Shy Guys for?
Are you sure it was a normal egg? Silver Shy Guys should give you metal eggs. Metal eggs are "heavier" which means they allow you to sink in water.

comment What do the sub-stats on a weapon mean?
Having never played the game or seen the weapon screen in question, it sounds to me like you're looking at Damage Range (number of hits), with the bottom line filling in elemental damage: Fire, Ice, and... holy? with their corresponding bonus damage numbers.

comment How can I remove these trash items / Why these things don't disappear?
If you drop them in a non-respawning cell, you're out of luck. You'll have to pick them all up if you want to do anything with them (short of mods, perhaps).

I've edited the embedded images to use StackExchange's imgur service instead, as the site the previous images were hosted at was pay-per-click and caused pornographic pop-ups.

comment How to level up in Diablo 3 2.0.1?
@James It is. But asking why they can't access that in their current game doesn't mean they're asking about unreleased content. "Why can't I hit level 70?" "Because level 60 is the max in the base game, even after the patch".

@James This question is, "I have the new patch, so why can't I level up to 70?", which has nothing to do with unreleased content.

comment Do the points mean anything?
For what it's worth, points don't mean anything in 90% of the Mario platformer games either, since 1-ups are tied to coins, not raw score.

Breeding a Charmander with another Charmander (same species) would decrease the time to produce an egg, however.
