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.
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???
thanks again for the tips i3rent i somehow never realized just how crummy my shoulders are. i'm definitely in dire need of an upgrade in a few areas in order to advance through a3 but at least now i know what i'm looking for.
this aint no joke, go change your battle.net passwords
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.
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
i think the barb may have a better shot at completing inferno, if that's what you're going for. just my thoughts.
yeah, "easier enemies" was the jist i was picking up as well but that's ok. i'm most interested in skill changes; i'd love to see more viable builds and i'm happy that theyre buffing skills so we as a player will feel stronger. i don't feel like much of a super powerful almighty hero if i'm wearing a bunch of gear and skills that has "reduced damage from enemies" and i'm picking away at their health pool by hitting them with the equivalency of the eraser end of a pencil.
estimated date is end of august too, i like that (same date as Guild Wars 2 release which doesnt surprise me 1 bit)
edit: lol 25k posts

i'd like to see some auction house improvements, its soooo tedious to browse and narrow down to what you want. they need more than 3 fields to search from, that would narrow down a lot of what you are looking through. and a compare (like check off different items and then see them on a list), or watch feature would be good, also to be able to see the differences with what you are currently wearing. increasing how many auctions i can have at one time would be good too.. my inventory is stacked full of stuff waiting to be sold while my items waste away in the AH...
if any of you have been sitting on large amounts of brimstone or essence, now may be the time to sell. prices have gone up by 200-300% so far on inferno materials since that 1.0.4 news came out.
good news, looks like at some point the are increasing searchable stats fields in the AH from 3 to 6..
ok after a pretty reasonable upgrade in gear and boost of DPS, up to 26k, 51k hp, over 700 in resist all, 870 life on hit, and a decent spec, (barbarian) im still finding trouble in act 3, i mean like same friggen champ pack kills me like 4x in a row.. the breached keep is such tight quarters, i have trouble getting out of their arcane sentries, poison pools, whatever. also what does the fiery chain that connects them sometimes, do? a guy i was talking to has over 44k dps and i cant really see where hes getting it from, hes got like 100 more str than me and some more damage from crit. we have the same spec. hes got the damage range boost stat on his rings and amulet, i guess that counts for something, but i wouldnt think almost 2x the dmg.
here is my character:
here is his:
his crit damage bonus is 275% and mine is 197% is that plus the 100 more str driving his dps up that much more?
feeling a little discouraged
also, noticing most of my drops suck, they are mostly level 54-55 crap yellows, rarely get a 61 lvl +
so many quivers and xbows..

i dont have decent MF gear, i have a gold/mf set, but its all pieced together and i can only run act1 with it.. act 2 i need to run with my damage gear on. i get 5 stacks of NV, but it still seems bad, im running an act 2 run right now, i'll see how it goes. i had my eye on a 28% block 9% crit lvl 63 shield but i got outbid on it
Resistance > Vitality in Act 3/4. Until you hit diminishing returns then go for Vit. I have more str + resist than you and I'm only at 34-35k vit.
Vit is not a very good stat overall because it doesn't do anything but boost your HP pool. Str is sexier because it not only gives you +dmg but +crit and +block.
Physical Resist is also sexier than Vit because it's a bigger dmg reduction than armor. You may also want to have atleast 11-15% dodge through dex. It makes tanking through champs and elites much better. I see very little Phy resist on your gear.
You can't survive waves of elites and hard hitting mobs without +800 resist for a melee class. The crit gives you a nice revenge heal but you have to survive being mobbed and revenge not proc.
MF is free when you have the buff or max it out on your Pet.
