I appreciate the thought. Seriously, it means a lot to me that you offered to help. But to be frank my complaints on Blizzard's bad decisions isn't going to go away even if I accept your kind offer. The game itself need fixing. I just need to feel like I am having fun, and that can only happen when Blizzard patch this again.

I have been a single-player gamer for as long as I can remember. And in DIII I am still sort of sticking to that. The AH is just an alternate vendor source for me, and I just don't go to open games. Just want to say that I am a stubborn and unreasonable mule, and that's why I can't let you help me.

Now, to start playing as a Monk...

1000g per tome? Really? When patch v1.03 went live, I bought a stack of 100 for 10k gold. Has their value really gone up that high? I think I still might have some leftovers. I don't mind giving out some, not really using them at the moment. Currently not levelling any alts, so I'm not looting any lower-level gems. Most of my gem crafts use Tome of Secrets.

To Vallen Chaos Valiant, I'm not the highest spender in the world. If you have read through my previous posts in this thread, the most I have ever spent on individual gear is 250k gold, with 100k being the average, for Inferno gear.

My style of playing is more methodical than "hardcore". I don't grind Treasure Goblins, I don't stack Magic Find, and I usually do full clears instead of making a bee-line for Act Bosses. I haven't even hit 100 hours played on any class.

If you having difficulty in a current Act, do strongly consider going back to the previous Act to gain more gold and items first. It would certainly be more productive than slamming yourself against a wall repeatedly in vain. Most of the other Inferno players in this thread have progressed much further than me, but you know what? That's a-okay with me. I have my own pace, and so long as I am having fun, I don't mind my slower pace of progression.

It's not like I'm racing against anyone or something.

Cheers.

I really would like to know the feeling of "playing as my life depends on it", because all I'm doing is playing at my own pace, grinding Leoric and Butcher for my Wiz's stuff, and I have never had problem with repair cost.
It's better than seeing a million of useless golds as in D2 anyway.

Btw, I don't know why my Wiz's dps couldn't go above 8k, even I have the same dps gear and stats as those DH. Every time I downed a butcher, it's always reached the timer where there is no place to stand but the fire, while my friends could kill him in under 2 minutes. Do they have some amplifier skills or something?

I wish they would bring back the weapon's property ailments.

DHs have a lot of inflated DPS passives, such as one that increases damage when no enemy is near them, weapon mastery passive, as well a skill that gives them crit over time and reset when a critical hit is landed.

Post 103 you want to get some crit and crit damage to boost your damage. Ofc, a good weapon is pretty important as well.

Before 103, you had the option of stacking IAS or stacking Crit. Stacking Crit is hard because you need to dedicate gear to get it to work properly, while before 103 stacking IAS has immediate benefit even if you aren't maxed.

But now with IAS nerfed, Crit is the obvious choice now. The problem is everyone else is thinking the same thing. So price for Crit items goes up. Those who already had Crit builds are laughing after 103.

Lol, I was thinking you were interacting with us via the AH, but sure, that's fine too I guess. But at least we can discuss AH deals right?

And yes, I know helping you won't solve our grievances with Blizz. But we players gotta stick out for one another sometimes, because I sure as know Blizz won't.

Also my monk's armor looks so ugly. :S

So, i need a little advice. I'm a barb in inferno and i'm dying a lot. Yeah, happens to everyone i gather, but it probably happens a lot more to me since i'm still using AH stuff i bought for myself at 10k a pop back in the beginning of hell

I've only been upgrading my weapon, and even that could be better right now. I have just under 1mil in gold, what do i spend it on for optimal upgrades?

You will find some good upgrades for 50k (or lower) on the AH, best attribute's for barbs I don't know, but always get gear with All ress on it + crit damage if you can .

So, I played DH, Monk and Wizard to Act II (normal) . And as usual I cannot decide on which class to focus. Pure from preference I like my female Wizard more as a range class than the DH. I just can't get accustomed to the DH somehow. With luck I get my 2nd auction and can finish Act II with my monk and her new 52.x dps weapons (yes, for me that's a huge improvement).

You don't need that much for act 1 and act 2 lol, even if it was pre-nerf. 300+ resist, 5000+ armor, 30k+ hp and 10k+ dps is good enough for act 1

Don't know if it's just me but are weapon racks suddenly dropping a lot more weapons like they used to than before? I could swear last night hardly any racks dropped anything, and suddenly today they're dropping like 5/6th of the time.

Ninja server-side change by blizzard in response to the massive outcry perhaps.

First rune of Elemental Arrow. Ball lightning I believe it's called. Same damage with large aoe, though you can basically go with anything.

Well, you will need to provide some details so that we can reply properly.

1) Do you prefer to solo, or group play?
2) What are your current stats? Namely,
  • Armor value
  • Lowest resist value
  • Unbuffed HP
  • DPS
  • Attack Speed
  • Life on Hit value
3) What's your current progression? Act 1? Act 2? Which quest?

Cheers.

That's ample stats to solo well into Act 3. Your friend is doing something wrong.

Guys, I need your help. I think I may have found an item that could get me rich. I don't need it 'cause I don't stack physical resistance but for other monks, this might be really good.



426 armor
167 dex
50 physical resist
50 all resist
72 int
117 life/sec

What do you think I can charge for those bracers in the auction house? I'm having trouble finding similar ones. I found one with cold resistance for 2.8 millions, but those don't have nearly the same armor value. What do you think? 3, 4, 5 millions? Or am I exaggerating?

/edit: nevermind, sold 'em for 4.5 millions. First time that I'm a millionare in D3.

Had a lot of fun over the past two days helping an old friend level his monk from level 1 all the way to finishing Normal Act IV. Boy, the experience REALLY goes quickly, as I was level 30 up to around Act III, but by the time we finished Normal his monk was level 30 (while my wizard was 32 by then).

I already pre-warned him of what to expect in higher difficulties though, especially with the need to occassionally visit the Auction House to upgrade gear.

Edit: I noticed that the RM AH actually has pre-set values for whenever you're trying to sell equipment. For example, if I don't actually do anything an put my 598 DPS axe with poison damage and STR mods, it comes out as 26+ USD. So does this mean that there's an actual equivalent value to whatever enchants are on an item?

Coincidentally I also lvled a wizard with two of my friends. Using -lvl require weapons make the game insanely easy esp if you have a monk who brings mantra of conviction.

I dont trust the RMAH suggested value.
