comment What is the most efficient way to reach level 72?
Question is just a bit broad, but completely legit. Also, linked duplicate contains only obsolete answers and ones too situational to be practically useful for this question.

comment What would be the best character to use playing solo?
Just five cents from the other side: I'm one of the people who LOVE Krieg. I admit he's wildly different, an I'm just lucky to love the way of that. I had no problem in Normal and TVHM, though having a buddy does help in few situations (the better you play, the less). Didn't try UVHM, likely a team is mandatory.

"Technically, it's not a mod, but a completely different server program" :-)

@Troyen =slaps himself on the forehead= You're right. I am not getting much sleep lately, it seems. Of course, affix reing rolled off does roll again, and you either have +Elem among your locked stats or you don't. Thanks for correcting me.

comment Diablo III Latest Patch Breaks Sockets?
@WizardLizard This turned out to be a tremendous improvement to the answer and its practical usefulness. Maybe we should rename the question to "how do I Enchant for a Socket" or "why can't I roll a Socket" to improve discoverability? Do you happen to have any info on what perople search for?

@WizardLizard why, thanks, no reason to be sorry! I am kinda ashamed of not having thought of such a possibility (and I'm having some "ah, that's why..." thoughts now :-). Will recalculate as soon as I'm at a PC.

comment Why do all Valve games have the 'hl2.exe' process?
TF was never a mod for HL2, so "keeping" the name from HL2 seems an unlikely reason. Portal was never a mod at all.

@AngusAtkinson why? The answers do contradict each other in detail, and are both actually guesses. Now that you've set such an ultimatum, both posters will face the choice to grab the rep from another for literally no value provided. Remember why the "acceptance" mechanic does exist in the first place - to help other people find answers, not to be a prize some people award to others...

comment Diablo III Latest Patch Breaks Sockets?
Just recently I got a new amulet (with elemental damage, so that's 1 of 13 chance), and burned through all of my 38 Souls with no luck. Then, after farming more, I came back and got a Socket on the first try :-)

comment Diablo III Latest Patch Breaks Sockets?
In the worst case an Amulet can have 19 primary affixes (including all resistance and +% to elemental damage). This means when enchanting, a socket has 1 of 16 chance to roll. Hence, the chance to NOT get a Socket in 10 tries is 52,4%. In 20 tries - still 27,5%. In 30 tries - still 14,4%. Not succeeding in something with 85,6% probability is a bit too early to say the game is broken :-)

comment The fastest way to run Starcraft 2 offline?
I can confirm that the game runs Campaign just fine when the connection is unstable. At Heart of the Swarm launch the servers were overloaded, so after I played through the campaign without any lag, I just missed half the achievements.

comment The fastest way to run Starcraft 2 offline?
This is probably because this question doesn't look like it could benefit anyone, and is pure curiosuty. StackExchange strives to be a useful archive of knowledge for many people, and no one likes to spend time answering questions someone is just too lazy to google themselves. Can you please describe why switching SC2 to offline mode is important, and why do you need to do this so often you want to optimize the process?

comment Is there a way that I can stop people from standing still too long?
@Nitro.de Making maps using powerful Command block system is not "development of modifications", it is exactly how the vanilla, unmodded game is supposed to be played. I see no reason why the question "how to do something in my map", tagged with "redstone" and "server" is about mod development, even if the answer will be "there is no way, you'll need to write your own mod".

comment Which elite affixes cannot be dodged?
@pfayze Ah, okay. As a DH, I have almost forgotten what it is like to Dodge things now... One of more important things I remember dodgeable, though, were Frozen blasts and Izual's nova.

comment Shadowfang Sword WoD drop rate increase?
@Huangism knowing drop rates, at least relative, is important to plan one's time. I.e. if item A is 50% more desirable than B, but is ten times harder to obtain time-wise, one may choose to skip it, unlike the situation where it is, say, only three times as rare.
