@BlueRaja-DannyPflughoeft Thanks for pointing that out. Fixed.

comment How do aliens use grenades?
I was under the impression that they use it to: A) Destroy cover, or B) hit multiple targets.

comment Why do Terran players bring SCVs with their main army so often?
You usually don't bring 10-15 SCVs for repairs. Pulling lots of SCVs is for the final push where they serve as meatshields. If you don't win the game with that push, it's basically over. The only other scenario I can imagine is where you want to free up supply because you have lots of orbitals at hand.

comment How critical is it to have psi soldiers in my squad?
@Shadur Didn't know about the will debuff. You're right about the expiration of MC. It can be dangerous, but usually the alien gets killed by its comerades. Otherwise I just position my soldiers at favorable positions with overwatch and the alien at an open, exposed area when mind control is about to expire.

comment How do I equip my S.H.I.V?
You're right. I just researched plasma for the S.H.I.V and it fixed the "bug". So I just hopes it doesn't happen again, as there's probably no higher tech than plasma :). It looks like I'm not the only one with this issue: forums.2kgames.com/…

Bugs are bugged indeed.

comment Does Diablo have fast gear switching?
The only thing you could "fast-switch" in Diablo 2 was the weapon/shield. Not entire gear-sets. Or are you talking about a different feature?

comment Why do some items that increase attack speed work, and others don't?
Yeah, I'm aware of the two different affixes and that one doesn't work as intended. Let's assume that there's only one enchantment, it could still be possible that IAS on weapon only affects the weapon (base-speed) and IAS from armor gets multiplied by that... but I guess we'll see as soon as the patch goes live.

Do you have any source for this? Is it really a bug and is it going to be fixed? It might be by design that weapon IAS is different from IAS from other sources...

comment How should I make money?
I already sold lots of blues in the AH.. but this is in Hardcore, where the amount of player and items is way lower.

comment Building Barbarian in Inferno
You should be more specific... what skills/passives are you currently using? Are you playing in a group or mainly alone?

comment How do I get better gems?
+1. Don't use the gem artisan without checking the auction-house first... I threw away lots of gold by combining gems before I noticed that. Now I don't even bother picking up the low quality gems. It's just not worth it.

comment How can I reduce skill cooldowns?
Great post, but you're wrong about the items. There are several legendary/set items that will reduce spell cooldowns. Here's an example, and here's another one.

comment What is the max number of sockets for each equipment type?
Thanks for improving the answer, this seems to align with my current findings as well. I'll leave the bounty open for a bit, but your answer is definitely worth it.

comment What is the max number of sockets for each equipment type?
Haven't seen any bracers with sockets either.. also I found a chest-armor piece with 4-5 magical properties (3 of them base stats) AND 3 sockets.. which seems to kinda contradict your logic?

comment What is the max number of sockets for each equipment type?
That doesn't address the part about various item-types. I highly doubt that a ring can have more than 1 sockets. Also I just recently searched the auction house for a helm with 2 sockets (or more), to no avail.

comment How can I increase my elemental resistances
I just saw that there are items with + elemental resistances (example). But you're saying that there are also some magical properties that only appear at a given level (or maybe item-level)? Could you add a link/source to your answer?

comment How much do health globes heal
There are items that can increase the amount of health they give though... some stat like: "+44 health from health globes" or similar.
