    You gotta be fucking kidding me. Work night dragging on waiting to go home and play and they have maintenance when I walk in the door.

    All I want to do is play the single player game, jesus.

    All matters how much you have played. So far almost done with Act 3 and I'm really enjoying it. I know a common complaint was graphics (actually texture quality), and while that is lacking. They have done some excellent work on scenery and locations. I much prefer the locations in this game to D2, it actually feels creepy. So overall the texture quality isn't bothering eme, and the gameplay is very good, so for me it's a perfect time to pass my judgement on it. I think it's a good game, maybe great, that will depend on how many times I can play through it without getting bored.

    I'd post a pick of BloodGusher's stats, but the servers are offline atm.

    I've yet to fine anything higher than rare, and have only found one socketted item and one gem. :/

    Bit the bullet and bought the game, played for half an hour as servers are down for maintenance.. Sigh.

    Texture models are equivalent to Torchlight really but the environment/atmosphere of Diablo III is far better. I am getting the MMO vibe from this game as its 24/7 online and the maintenance is really ruining the experience. But with that said the game is fun despite the outdated looking models I am still finding myself enjoying pointing and clicking just like the older diablos, the story is really awesome so far too.

    No wonder your DPS is high, it's your alt, he has better gems than my level 28 Barb lol. a Ruby (3rd tier) adds about 30 DPS alone to my character, I can only imagine that bow and quiver you have are probably like 150+ DPS alone :p Whats your main character?

    Wow, how you doing 275 dps and only level 20?!

    My monk only does 211 and I have way more DEX than you. Hmmm... I notice those perfect gems!

    Oh, plus I'm not dual-wielding yet! :laugh:

    I expect to have 300 dps on my next level! (lv. 24)

    Good lord. My barb at 30 barely has 180 dps. And I have crap loads of STR items and that stupid 15% damage boost from swords talent. Admittedly I have about 3.5x your armor though ;D How much DPS does that perfect ruby add?

    That's why I will pass on this and pick up Torchlight II as an alternative rather than a complement.

    Are you using some tank talents? I'm at 401 DPS unbuffed (using swords of course) on my Barb at level 28, when I have Full Fury + Battle Rage I get the results below, and he is my main so I'm not using gems that are beyond my level or any other tricks.

    Ah, I thought you had a DH because you had compared Ufgy's (DH) deaths on Normal to your own since he dies a lot on Normal.

    Wow that's a lot higher than I thought. I use a sword/board, that's probably why my damage is so low. Didn't realize the dps jump to Dualwield is so significant..may have to try it.

    My general tactics are: Leap into a group of them (w/ 300% armor boost), cleave, rend, threatening shout about the time armor boost runs out, with revenge sprinkled in the middle, and finally run away until leap recharges if they aren't dead yet. I'm sure this strategy won't work on nightmare/hell difficulty but for normals its a pub-stomp lol. I'll usually end fights full hp and barely take any damage at all.

    I'll have to post some screenies when I get home, but I remember leap giving me 75% damage mitigation or so, which with a 20% block shield is pretty ridiculous.

    As long as you kill things I wouldn't worry too much about the DPS. I play with Ufgy, so I don't need to be able to survive as much since he whips out the damage to. But I run the Heal Skill on my Frenzy and the Heal Skill on my AoE thing on hotkey 2 (the one that procs when you get hit), and I got a bit of Life Steal and I can stand toe to toe with anything and rarely pop a potion, so so far it's been tanky enough.
