      So a final update on my "I got hacked!" issue.

      The Blizzard gamemaster told me as politely and nicely as he could to go piss up a rope. Do not pass Go, do not (re)collect my 3M gold, and various mf gear that was stolen, as they could not find a proper "backup" save point where I said I had my goodies. Don't understand why they couldn't just take it back to July 30, the day before I got the hack.

      /shrug.

      So I will go back to farming NM and Hell for gold and various things to sell, until I can get "good" gear again. Oh well. There's always Torchlight 2...

      That's not cool of them.

      I have TL2 preordered on Steam because I got TL for free for doing it.

      You should be using Life on Hit anyway, it's always better than Life Steal regardless of difficulty. Also, as you pointed out, Life Steal gets nerfed into uselessness in Inferno.

      Life Steal reductions
      Nightmare 30%
      Hell 60%
      Inferno 80%

      someone posted that 2 guys tried to scam him by sending him a script that would open his inventory and drop all his gear. he posted the raw text from the script and as a programmer i have to say that it is incredibly simplistic! i find it hard to believe a magic find script hasnt been released yet to the general public, cus wow it'd be easy! that or maybe it's just an unspoken word and there are a bunch out there

      i feel i could write one in only a few days. gold finding would be even easier as well, those obviously exist. but what boggles my mind is how exactly is blizzard supposed to catch you? this script is entirely client side and about moving your mouse to specific areas and clicking, nothing more. seems near impossible to get caught unless blizz watches your account for the same pattern over and over. again though, maybe an unspoken word...

      Well, considering they couldn't back up my account to simply a save point a day before I got scammed/robbed, I can't see how they'd pick up on that.

      That said, with about a 400k investment in gold find gear, I'm almost a millionare again. And with the research I did on the downtime, I now have higher DPS than before. Still cannot solo Act I yet tho.

      So, I can look up players' gear and skills and spot who the noobs are in the group. Sure you can do this in game but the website is quicker and complete details.

      You should be able to do that fairly quickly in game.

      I haven't had much desire to play the last month, and the Steam sales haven't helped my motivation.

      Been getting some decent items as of late. Sold a bunch of stuff for a few hundred thousand. 2 days ago I found a wizard weapon that sold for 3 million and today I found a 40mf amulet which should go for a couple million as well.

      Act 3 is very kind too me.

      It sounds like this game has turned into, "Find **** that you can sell at the AH for gold to use to buy **** at the AH."

      Am I in the general ballpark here?

      More or less. I do enjoy it though so I won't complain. I'm a loot whore.

      Only now, if you so desire, you can change "gold" into "cold hard cash", provided you can find a buyer.



      Granted, given the time involved, you may find a better ROI working at McDonald's...

      At $2.50 ~ 3.20 / million gold. If you're making 3 million gold a night, that's the equivalent of $10 if you sell your gold back to AH. There are better real money making games out there than D3.

      x2, which is why i cant seem to pull myself away from this game regardless of how many gripes i have about it.

      lately my auctions havent been selling and my shared stash is completely filled with stuff that needs to be listed, so i'm undercutting prices by up to 70% just to get it gone. i realize i can make a lot more gold from doing many little transactions than sitting on a few big ones for days and days. so if you find a stupidly good deal, it very well could be something of mine

      i am fairly amazed at how prices have come down so much though as more gear gets introduced to the AH by more players. shoulders that have 100+ str/100+ vit/60+ res all with a solid 4th mod can be found for under 50k these days. what???

      So im in act 3 inferno, i can get through some if it, left off in the breached keep.. some champ packs have their way with me, i definitely hate arcane sentries and small spaces. i feel like ive kind of pieced together my stuff with no real direction, other than knowing i need resist all and LOH weapon. i have a decent amount of money and i dont want to waste it. i read different guides on the net and they go in so many different directions that i dont really know what to do next to get my guy better.

      http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/E.../hero/13924807

      there is my guy..

      before i started changing to the resist all gear i had 60k hp and 30% crit, i think i had a different set of passives as well, i found a decent guide somewhere for act 2, and made it through that. i have replayed it a couple times, but it doesnt have the clear farming routes like i found in act 1. and the mob packs out in the deserts can be a pain in the butt.

      i feel like my build is working ok, although i wish i could keep leap or furious charge to get out of tight spots and out run a tough pack. i guess im looking for gear guidance, i've been looking for a chest and gloves with all resist but i cant find a decent set with the stats i want, str, vit crit and resist for the hands and str vit and 3 sockets for chest. my shield and necklace were found on drop, while i know they arent the best, they are the best ive been able to find. any help is appreciated
