    Hit 25 and broke 200dps with my DH just started act 3.

    Also rolled a hardcore barb currently at lvl 8.. Running into the same problem I had with the past diablos, ya its a different toon and playstyle but I hate running thru the same storyline and being stuck on an easy difficulty.

    Pretty much. From what I've seen Normal and Nightmare are a race to higher DPS, but once you start getting through Hell you really have to focus on survivability.

    Well as a barbarian in inferno, i know he's going to get owned for sure.


    You won't survive the hits to use revenge.

    Level 35 Witch Doctor here. Gotta rethink my plans going through Nightmare Difficulty. I didn't explore all of my abilities running through the game on normal.

    This game is amazing.

    You're basically stacking Vitality, and have your weapon Gemmed for Crit Damage instead of Weapon Damage. The Weapon Damage given by Rings, Gems, and Items affects the Base Damage of your character. Strength compliments this, but is definitely not as effective. Here's a crude example;

    Str: 10 WD: 10 = 10 x 1.1 = 11.
    Str: 11 WD: 10 = 10 x 1.11 = 11.1
    Str: 10 WD: 11 = 11 x 1.1 = 12.1

    That's using conservative numbers, say we crank it up to the hundreds;

    Str: 100 WD: 100 = 100 x 11 = 1100
    Str: 101 WD: 100 = 100 x 11.01 = 1101
    Str: 100 WD: 101 = 101 x 11 = 1111

    Weapon Damage scales a lot nicer than Strength does. In the second example 1 point of Weapon Damage is equivalent to 11 points of Strength. If you grab 2 rings with even 2-4 Weapon Damage on them I guarantee your Damage will probably double.

    The way I see it attributes are largely just pad stats. You should never really go explicitly for them since they have the lowest effect in moderation. When you are looking at 2 items you want to go for the items with the largest benefit, obviously something with tons of Str/Dex/Int will be better than like Magic Find and Gold Bonus, but that should be obvious. When looking to improve damage it's basically WD>Attack Speed>Crit Chance>Crit Damage>Attributes, at least for Monks.

    Is there a way to take screen shots without FRAPS or something like FRAPS? I hit print screen and all I get is my desktop.

    When I finished the normal campaign, my Barb did 300 more dps but had 300 less armour and 100 less vitality. Also, holy hoarding batman.

    If you want to add criticals to the fray,

    Str:100, WD:100, Crit %:5, Crit Bonus: 50 = 2*100[(1-0.05) + (0.05*1.5)] = 205
    Str:100, WD:100, Crit %:10, Crit Bonus: 50 = 2*100[(1-0.1) + (0.1*1.5)] = 210
    Str:100, WD:100, Crit %:10, Crit Bonus: 100 = 2*100[(1-0.1) + (0.1*2)] = 220

    I'm @ lvl35 as well, running just over 720 DPS. I use the zombie dogs with 4th dog, life link, sacrifice, and the ability that makes them re-appear after sacrifice, large zombie, and the little fetish random spawn based on magic casting, as well as Zombie wall. Using the firebombs that bounce as main attack.


    I often survive when Mailman and BlackHaru die, enough to run away, go back, use zombiewall to hold of the smaller guys, and then sacrifice the zombie dogs to clear out the large blue and gold enemies.

    I've tried all of the other abilities in various combos, and always end up coming back to the zombies. they are great to hold off mobs so my own character can do ranged attacks, as the spawned creatures always rush ahead to meet the enemies.


    But i sitl lgotta look online and see if there's some weird combo i missed or something. many of the abilites seem useless to me, but perhaps i'm not using them right...like ht eability that turns me into a chicken!?! WTF!
