    Blizzard just nerfed boss runs. You will no longer receive quest XP for killing a boss after the first time and the loot dropped will be less each time. I could have sworn that was what Diablo 1 and 2 were all about. Grinding the bosses.

    I also have a great wizard build now, but Im not going to say anything about it or blizzard will nerf that also. Seems like anytime you find a good build it gets nerfed.

    SHHHhhhh. Don't tell blizzard but I have a new wizard build and I am having FUN again.

    Just completed the normal campaign as the wizard. So far I've completed it using the DH, barb and wizard. The DH and wizard are good for taking on mobs, but the barb is a hell of a lot better at taking on bosses, even with a lower dps.

    Is the dps in the inventory accurate? I'm a 35 DH on nightmare and I like asking others what their dps is just so I know where im at, I asked a 35 monk and he said his said it was 200 something... I'm at 1200

    DH does massive dps. Especially with the crit passive that essentially doubles what dps is displayed.

    i went from 300 DPS to 900 in about an hour, re-arranging my items and buying one item from the AH (10K gold, so nothing extreme)


    i never realised wizards werent locked to wands/staffs, so now i'm running around with a single handed spear *shrug*

    Now done with Normal, so I'm going to Nightmare now. Would try farming (gold) with my barb for my monk first though. Almost all of the rares I'm equipping my barb with is from the AH. The AH items were the ones responsible for more than doubling my HP and DPS. :laugh:

    Finally made it to hell on Wiz. DPS was a bit lacking for a while, was using a ~120 dps wand from NM. Took forever to kill things. Then I invested in some magic find, 26% or so... Found a crazy 258 dps wand which gave me +2k dps pre-buffs.

    Its so much more rewarding actually finding equipment rather than buying. I think I'm done with the AH!

    Indeed, it's much, much, much, much, more rewarding actually finding equipment rather than buying. That's why my barbarian is simply ecstatic with all the crossbows that get dropped, armor, rings, amulets that have intelligence and/or dexterity bonuses, staffs, etc. he gets from bosses!

    That's why the monk I have right now already has rares waiting for her. But if I were to make another barbarian character, there are 4 items she/he can use (barbarian only), and three of them are 2h weapons.

    I just killed The Butcher on NM for the first time. He dropped 3 blues and 2 whites. No yellows, no gold, no gems, no pages and no potions. Wow, my luck sucks.

    I was surprised how much the 'Find magic item' stat helps with this.

    I am at Diablo in NM at level 49. No legendary drops, and my best equipment is from the AH 95% of the time.

    I have a bow that has 150 vit and 150 dex, socketed. Because I don't want to decrease these stats (I need something socketed with more than 300 between both dex/vit) there is a snowballs chance in hell that I will find a bow outside the AH that is an upgrade.

    I would say that out of the rare drops I get, 20% of them are geared towards the DH in some way. In those drops, less than 5% are an upgrade from my current set. I might find a single drop per act that is usable.

    On Monday there's supposedly going to be a press release from the blizzard development teams about the future of the game and such. Lots of things are probably going to be addressed. I'm hoping for the following:

    - Blacksmith upgrades actually matter
    - Balance out melee with ranged classes
    - Better legendary items that are actually worth getting
    - Various bug fixes
    - Proper skill balance to make more builds viable
    - Special buff to Magibeg for being himself

    It'll be about PvP and the real money AH.

    This is to balance out the severe lack of performance, as with most buffs.

    Didn't have to wait, already had something better...
    The legendaries really need a buff.

    I'm sure there will be really good legenderies out there. Imagine a million or so legendaries ranging from really crappy to really good w/ a bell curve distribion w/ the peak at mediocre.

    except that's not the case - it was a design decision for blues/rares to be the most powerful. legendaries are just for show. you can see what the possible stats a weapon can have are on the website, and even a perfectly rolled legendary doesn't match any number of blues or rares. i can understand not wanting some specific weapon to be the most sought after, and that is their reasoning - but having legendaries so weak makes NO sense and makes their drops so... unspectacular.
