But like I said, the thing is that the minimum price isn't sustainable at all. Let's take an extreme example-- essences. They sell for a minimum of 0.25-- when you ask for a price that's too high, some people may do it at the start out of curiosity, but it's not something you can rely on.

Also, I improved performance by finding movement speed. I didn't before since finding my original monk boots was a pain, and it was a pain here with only 3 filters. But yea, with my current budget of "whatever you can find", it just goes without saying that facetanking act 3/4 is a a pipe dream, so a lot of stats (resists/damage) were sacrificed for the boots but at least the new ones have fancy life regen and a tiny bit of life with the movement speed. I also lost a good deal of gold find, but then again boots with gold find and no movement speed is just sort of an oxymoron anyways.

At this point it's now about finding more dps (most likely crit) and armor rating. Sadly, I'll need some actual gold to do this.

Also this dropped in Act 3. Intrestingly, the eite guy was called "Alot" though he sadly this isn't alot.

I've found that legendary as well. But since the legendary changes are coming, I've salvaged all of mines into fiery brimstones.

I don't think you can get a brimstone from that; it's not high enough. :S

Barbarian changes.

It's time to go back to my meteor build. Hopefully Mammoth Hydra is worth it. I have to use the original Hydra (without rune) for my fire build shows how worthless Mammoth is .

Gotta bring out my Throwing Barb once again.

Monk preview is out.

Kind of a mixture of "Not enough" to "DONT BREAK WHAT WORKS". The fact that they're thinking of mucking with One With Everything was disturbing, but at least for now they're leaving it alone, as it would make a LOT of monk players unhappy, given how tied it is to the gear we have right now.

Barbarian changes.
They did say that with high enough crit chance you shouldn't see much difference, but question is how much is high enough. Barb changes seem the best so far but I wonder if fury spenders will be made strong enough that fury is no longer a useless resource (and max fury affix items actually become useful).

And Xefi, who's that in your current sig?

O_O This marks the Second Brimstone third legendary in less than 2 weeks. This belt looks like crap and seems to have all bad rolls but I don't know about barbs. Sell on AH or Salvage?

^ you can try selling it on AH first. check what they're selling it for. if no one buy, just salvage it.
i usually look for life %, strength, all resist for belt...that belt isn't so bad you have there, but
i'll probably not gonna need it.

if you're lucky, you might find a buyer that buy it @ good price.

@Shinova: Chris from Symphogear.

EDIT: hmm, nvm...maybe you should just keep it if no ones buys it. ^^;

EDIT2: taken from the Demon Hunter preview:

Sentry is also a very distinctive spell that doesn't get used very often. It's interesting mechanically, and it has some nice potential for team play, so we'd like to make it more attractive. The solution was pretty simple for this one: we took its damage, and then we doubled it
OHHHH, i like this one!

Witchdoctor preview is up.

While it fixes the pet issue somewhat, it still doesn't address some of the other problems with the WD class (like the long cooldowns). Hopefully we'll get a more complete picture when the real patch notes come out.

Unless my understanding is wrong, the change cuts the crit chance from Wicked Wind by half. So say you have 30% crit now, the number of crits you get after 1.0.4 is equivalent to 15% crit now. And to get back the same effectiveness, you need to pump your crit chance to 60%, which is unrealistic.

I think CM/WW build needs a nerf, but Blizzard's excuse (improved legendaries) is rather lame. Why don't they just say the ability to freeze lock any melee monster is rather overpowered?

i believe it halves the chance a critical WW will proc CM. before 25% chance for WW crit to proc CM, now its 12.5% chance. so 1 out of 8 WW crit will trigger CM.

Put up the belt for 750k and it quickly sold. What? Does 1% crit chance help that much, since I see way better belts with more str for like 10k?

Well they finally let me into Act 4. Killed Rakanoth for good measure, and crippling wave seems to make things so much easier.

I can tank most of the monsters in this first portion easily, except that stupid off screen charge those corrupted angels do takes off half my fucking life. I'm not sure who thought it was a good idea to have an offscreen and practically undodgable attack.

Then again, I haven't faced an elite pack yet. I'm sure they'll make me want to uninstall the game as always.

My goal is to defeat Inferno Diablo before Guild Wars comes out, without skipping too many mobs. Good luck with that... I know.

Well, gg...

I'm done here mostly til maybe 1.04, but chances are Guild Wars 2 will be a far better game and I won't bother with this for much.

Probably won't be til a few months after the expansion or some major changes before I'll bother.

Anyhow, cleared Act 4 and killed every mob in my way with I think one death due to stupidity. Interestingly, Diablo was actually the hardest thing to fight because my dps is poop and I died twice. My 5 valors expired so I switched to Earth Ally and w/e. That stupid bone prison nearly one shots me, and while it's usually easy to avoid, the battle is so fucking long that I have to choose between focusing on my tired hands or eyes. :S

Oh, and of course he drops garbage, but that's not the problem. I couldn't even pick up the garbage because my inventory was full and apparently, you must end the game... you can't go back to town. Why?

Spoiler:


Along the way though, I found a 6 property plan for the first time...
Spoiler:


And this is how the game ends... are we really ending the game on a lackluster still that's exactly the same as the last 3 yet no message of any kind? Is this how you want us to remember the game? Sure the other ones tell you to look forward to the next difficulty, but you'd expect Inferno to have a special message like "a winner is you" or something. But no, nothing. And that really summarizes Inferno difficulty-- uninspired.

It's like a slap in the face even after the game is over, lol.
Spoiler:

Wow, your monk has less damage than mines, less life regen and life on hit than mines, but mines is still hitting a wall in act 2.

I think my problem is that I've been focusing too much on crit and don't have the hp and resists necessary to survive. I definitely need more resists.

I've switched to my barb for now however, which I feel more comfortable with (and a lot easier to gear for). I want to move onto other games but I want to clear inferno with at least one class.

I am now interested in what Blizzard have to say about Magic Find. Are they just going to kill it completely in a misguided attempt to stop robot farming? Making chest drops and pot drops unaffected is already bad enough.

You can't balance a game around cheaters, this is a fact. But Blizzard is doing exactly that.
