comment How can I 'complete' everything in the prison?
Note that the NPC Shadur mentioned is tied to another question (given in the Citadel, to deliver a letter to a ranger's sister in RNC).

comment I can't go any further because my rad suits are only level 2
You definitely don't need to go near the turrets to get the +4 rad suits.

comment Where and when can Treasure Goblin rifts appear?
I just did 5 runs on T4. 2 times no Iron Maiden event was spawned, 3 times it was. But not a single TG. I think perhaps you've just been very lucky since the hotfix.

comment Where and when can Treasure Goblin rifts appear?
@TravisJ People were claiming it was 100% pre-nerf. I have only found 1 pair of TGs out of half a dozen runs there since the nerf, which suggests it was nerfed hard, so I'm not convinced it is still the best place to farm, but I could have gotten exceptionally unlucky.

@TravisJ By "definitely wasn't 'fixed'", I'm presuming you didn't see this hotfix list?

comment Is there a downside to throwing Greater Rift time trials?
Regarding better loot per hour: given how fast a well-geared character can rip through low level Rifts, and how high the quality of loot on even the low level Rift Guardians is, I would be surprised if the speed difference doesn't compensate for the gear quality difference with low level rifts.

comment How can I beat Anub'Rekhan on Heroic?
@ken.ganong I actually had an easier time with Maexxna. Once I customized a deck for her (a Hunter deck) I got her on the third try, and down to 1 health on the first try.

comment How do I avoid dying?
This is a thorough and well-explained answer, so +1 from me. However, it would benefit from a caveat on Life on Hit. The efficacy of LoH is more dependent upon the skill used than on the attack rate. More specifically, it is highly dependent upon the proc coefficient of the attack skills used. Many classes have skills that are very good, work well with fast weapons, yet have horrible proc coefficients, making LoH practically useless. Example: I have yet to find a skill build for my arcane wizard where stacking LoH makes and difference at all.

comment What happened to all the Magic Find gear in patch 2.0/Reaper of Souls?
That's not actually true (that a topaz is the "only way" to get magic find increase with level 70). There are several legendaries that have magic find, such as the nagelring.

comment Does paragon level increase Magic Find?
@Katustrawfic I found reference in a diablofans FAQ. Still not as good as a blue post, but I've found they generally are decent at separating rumor from fact.

comment Does sparkflint familiar emit fire damage or arcane damage
I've updated the answer in the linked question, and z - is absolutely correct: this is a dupe of the other. Being far more specific is not an argument in this question's favor.

comment What skills provide what elemental damage for elemental exposure wizard?
@z-Thanks, I've updated. The online Game Guide just says "Summon a fiery familiar that grants you 10% increased damage." The in-game tooltip, as you say, specifies that it does fire damage.

comment Does paragon level increase Magic Find?
@Katustrawfic I'm reluctant to add that in without a source to back it up. I don't have time to look for one now, but I'll take a look later this evening. If you can find a source in the meantime, though, please feel free to add it in, or leave it as a comment.

@Katustrawfic It still exists on legacy blues and rares.

comment How does the Nephalem Valor buff work?
This question appears to be off-topic because it is about obsolete content.

comment When do set and legendary items start dropping?
@Tater596 I do mention that some legendaries only drop in Torment. If I recall correctly, some level 70 sets do drop outside of Torment, but class-specific and some other, high-end sets are Torment-only.

comment How much higher is the legendary drop rate in the Torment difficulties?
Note that there are certain legendaries that only drop in Torment I - VI. Also, item quality is unaffected by difficulty (e.g. a level 60 Nailbiter found in Normal has the exact same potential as a level 60 Nailbiter found in Torment VI).

comment When do set and legendary items start dropping?
@Doc The consensus I've seen is that farming for legendaries is pretty consistently faster at Torment I than at the higher levels, since any increase in drop rate is mitigated by the decrease in clear speed due to tougher mobs. The list you cited for Torment-exclusive Legendaries appears to be RoS only, and isn't yet live (and will probably only be available for those with the expansion).

comment When do set and legendary items start dropping?
@Doc I've updated my answer; I'm not certain if there is a correlation between difficulty tiers and legendaries, though, as there is no longer an implicit magic find boost in higher difficulty levels.

comment How does loot work?
@DavidYell As you progress, you'll find that some "crappy" white drops can actually be exceptionally good, simply by virtue of the number of linked sockets. A 5L or 6L white item is generally better than a 3L, even if the 3L has great stats.
