Winning a bid is harder than I thought. Somehow, my rivals seem to always win because they waits to outbid me in the last few hours/minutes/seconds. LOL

And I can't stare at the scene forever.......

Just won a bid on an item a lot of people don't see the value to:

It was a 650dps 2hander with req level -16 and a socket.
Perfect for my barb in Nightmare Act 2, I'm sure Belial will die in less than 30 seconds.

I bid and paid 350k, which is a lot more than what a weapon like that would be worth at max level, but considering the time it would save me on the barb till 60, it's well worth it. Socket was a must, so I can put in high LoH gem, to make sure everything is a breeze.

I can make up that cost in an hour on my Inferno character anyways.

Well, I think I'm halfway through Act-I Inferno. Leoric was surprisingly easier than expected, though by this point I've run into elite mobs with seriously STUPID enchant combinations. Like a boss with invulnerable minions, vortex, plagued, and frozen... Ugh.

Close to 350 resist now, but yeah, seriously not enough for many of the elites, like at all.

I guess it's more time in Whimsyshire for me, at least when my friends are on... If not, Act-IV Hell.

What's the dps on your weapon? I have some stuff I'm too lazy to sell for the pittance they'll give so I can give some stuff.

Ah, it's just a blue sword with 636-ish DPS that was slotted with an amethyst the one that gives +65 LoH). I followed the advise of everyone, and just got the cheapest yet most damaging one-hander I could find at the time.

I don't know about getting random acts of charity, especially since I'm in an altogether different timezone. ^^; It's why it's so rare finding Graham/Kaiohshin online to play with.

Yeah, I haven't won an auction without paying stupid prices. So only buyouts for me so far.

I have about 650 resist and 6400 armor, my DPS is only about 16k, health pool of 32k, Act 1 is a breeze.
Act 2 is a struggle, and Act 3 is impossible.

I can kinda do-by with most elites in Act 1 with gold find gear, which brings me down to around 470 resist and 28k health.

I use a standard defensive build, but no shield or cheezy-hadouken-deadly reach junk.
Once you get used to it, Act 1 will be a walk in the park.

Tons of hardcore characters just died from the sever lag spike.

@Weapon:
consider investing into a +300 LoH gem. It cost ~500k to craft (which is the "economical" price of a good LoH weapon, any higher will fetch a lesser increase in DPS/gold).

Dunno if it's true, but people are blaiming some kind of massive exodus of migration from Asia server to US happening tonight as cause of the currently ongoing massive lag spikes. My latency is jumping between 1300 to 2300.

It was utterly unplayable, so I logged off.
Waiting for the storm to calm down and play the game later.

Lag spike? Oh, so that's what it was. I barely noticed because it happens every few hours for me. Lovely business, this online single player game.

Ahh. Asia server has been down for nearly 24 hours, so a lot of angry Korean players started making characters on the US server.

This is understandable.
If US server went down for a whole day, a lot of us would be playing on the EU servers.
In fact, I have a barbarian on the EU server I occasionally hop on to.

EDIT:
World of Lagcraft over with woot!

Ahahahaha, that -req weapon I won in auction... equipped it on the barb, went from 925DPS to 7200DPS.
Massive overkill in Nightmare, this is gonna be fun.

Kull dropped in like, six hits or so.

The thing about the AH is that there are always good deals to be had. Still farming Inferno Act-1 with a Monk, but I haven't spent more than 100k gold on any single item yet, or 50k for that matter. The two items that I bought for a 100k were a Chest Armour with -7% Dmg from Elites, All Resists and Phy. Resist; and a Shield with All Resists, Phy. Resist, socket, Dexterity, +5% HP, and the maximum 20% Block Chance.

The 522dps Fist Weapon I'm using now, with socket and +18% IAS, cost me only 25k gold. Comes with Cold Damage too, the only damage type with a secondary effect, which slows enemies down. Works wonderfully with Sweeping Wind.

A quick look at her current stats, before and after Mantra of Healing.



At the moment, I am able to tank for pubs. Pretty gratifying to tank stuff that 1-hit kills all the glass cannons. The point I am trying to make is that you can always get a good bargain. Just keep looking and don't impulse buy.

Cheers.

It's also important to note that if you look for low prices you'll get low prices and if you look for high prices you're likely to get the same thing for high prices.

Well, the question is if you are willing to double the cost for 10% increase in stats. When you are in Inferno, you really need that extra ten percent.

500k can net you a ~650dps +500LoH weapon, sometimes with stats and at a decent speed.
If you want 800dps weapons (+150dps) you are almost looking at a mil+

I suspect there are AH bots that just buy the best deals on AH :S.

Buying stuff on AH is an investment: by getting better gear I can farm more efficiently which nets me more gold. This is especially true for those who cannot farm Act III: as most items that sell for millions have a chance to drop there. Even the occasional blue can fetch me anywhere from 100k to 1mil (socketed high dps 1 hander).

As expected, Magic Find is highly valued even with N valor going against it-- having it greatly boosts the sell value of your item. You can pretty much sell any blue amulet with a good MF and any other usable mod and have it sell within minutes. Gold find is also valued as such.
