    Hydra? With which rune?

    Diablo in hell was the easiest of the 4: killed him on my 2nd try.

    Go figure :twitch: :p

    On act 1 @ inferno i i've already gave up on an elite pack: even with diamond skin and archon, the best i could do was to give him a little dent :(

    I hate them elites with invulnerable minions and the fact that i found them in a small cellar certainly didn't help :(

    i think maybe some of the stupid damage weapons
    like a 1700 damage 2h i seen last week think it was listed for like 80mil
    i have farmed near everything so have many friends and they have not seen anything close to it
    i really dont know where that kind of item would drop with such hi stats

    maybe that is why we cant see the name of player who list auction

    Time to ditch Archon unless you have a tank. My damage spells Are Magic Missile (Seeker, though Charged works good too just easier to kite with Seeker), Venom Hydra, and Arcane Orb (Tap the Source). I didn't want to go with the Boring VH/Blizz combo, so using Magic Missile and Arcane Orb mixes it up and still gives me the slows I'm looking for. Early on as a Wizz I like Ray of Frost, Disintegrate, and Archon, but on Inferno you must kite, you can't just sit there and fire your lazors, elites/champs will just tear you apart.

    I ran Archon all the way through Hell with Ufgy tanking and it worked great (with Arcane Orb and Venom Hydra). Problem with that build was sometimes I ran out of Arcane power, but with the Hydra I still had damage rolling so it wasn't a huge deal. But once I moved into Inferno I picked up some Attack Speed gear and I needed an Attack that didn't use a resource but benefited from AS, and since being Stationary isn't as viable (especially the few times I run solo) I swapped out Archon for Magic Missile, and overall it feels like a much more rounded build.

    Here's the build that I run right now http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#acQSOR!YXU!cYYZYb

    the only thing I contemplate changing anytime soon is Astral Presence for Prodigy, simply because I now use a Signature Spell. But I don't know if I'll make the change or not, I like being able to initiate a fight with a ton of Arcane Orbs.

    Anyone got a good build for a 53 barb? I was playing with Cadaveca last night and was getting my ass handed to me despite having almost a 1000 more DPS then him as a witch doctor.

    Works pretty well. I guess you could take berserker rage talent instead of one of the armor talents if you wanted.
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#WVXRkP!beV!acaZcZ

    Re-did my gear last night to focus on phys resistance and high armor, and let me tell you I can take a hell of a beating now. Things in A1 Inferno barely even hurt any more. The goal is to get about 8k armor and 70% phys resist (w/ warcry buff). After that you can start to focus on damage a whole lot more.

    Lol, I didn't mean a bonus as is skill bonus, but, bonus as in; you do 20k DPS and she does 2k DPS, which is 10%.

    If you are trying to roll as DPS, I would suggest trying out http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#ahXVcY!ZeY!cbacZb

    This is the Basic Setup I use on my Barb in Act 1 Inferno and I used mostly through Hell as well (I have Rend Swapped out for Inferno) just make sure to use Leap whenever it's off CD and Stomp as well, Leap into a group and hit Rend, once Iron Armor Wears off fill in a Revenge and then Stomp, once the stun ends fill a revenge and Leap again. Basically you will just be Alternating between Leap (for Iron Armor) and Stomp for the Stun. Keep Rend up for life gain/damage and fill with Revenge/Whirlwind/Bash. And if shit gets thick, leap out and wait a bit.

    I tried Dual Wield and just couldn't ever find a survivable spec with it that was viable in solo and multiplayer. Though as the game gets harder, it really pushes you to use a Shield, so if this build doesn't work for you, then time to go even more tanky.

    Blizzard is spawning the items in the AH, main reason I quit, good items wont drop so you have to buy them from blizzard themselves in the RMAH. Ethical?

    Dual wield only viable in attack speeds over 2.2 for barbs and with over 2300 life on hit (which is very easy to obtain) I did that on my barb and my monk and got through act 2 on both (slowly however :p)

    2200 life on hit is easy to obtain? I see 600 life on hit items in the AH selling for 5mil (at least with good damage)

    RMAH isn't working yet?

    Oh I know DW is able to be used, I just found 2 handers to be better AoE damage, and since most things fought are in groups it just felt better. Also like said, 2300 is easy to obtain? Thats a lot of gold farming.

    Yes it is, I got 2 650 dps 1 handers with 810 life on hit (daggers) a gem socket and bonus atk speed. I had the recipe for the star gems and made the 2 300 LoH 810 + 810 + 600 = 2200ish
    Add that with a amulet with 103 loh and I had it

    Both those daggers were 1.5m and 950k respectively how did I get them? commited to trolling the AH for about 6 hours while I studied pressing refresh every 10 seconds lol eventually some cheap ones came up.

    Sitting on the AH for 6 hours spamming refresh every 10 seconds just to spend 2.5 million doesn't sound easy or cheap :p And getting the Star gem recipe isn't cheap or easy either. So saying that much life on hit is easy, it doesn't sound like it.

    The recipe is free if you are lvl 10 artisan its costs 600k to make each gem if you combine from flawless squares and comparatively to the standard diablo grind, 2.5m is very easy to get about 1 day of farming. and study for the series 65 and 66 exams you'll have plenty of time to spend at your desk reading lol.

    Thats your opinion you have the right definition for easy sure, but easy itself is in the eye of the beholding, it was easy for me. Might be hard for you. But that doesn't mean it isn't easy. I think the word you were looking for is accessible.

    The cost of each level of gem to upgrade, cost of star pattern, time spent on the AH, cost of the weapons, thats even at 2.5 million a day probably 3 - 5 days of (if you are making 2.5 million a day I assume 10 - 15 hour days) of pure Diablo farming. If you define easy as a life commitment for a solid week, then I guess thats easy :laugh: Sitting on the AH for 6 hours (not even refreshing) would probably make me want to stop playing diablo all together, would be bored out of my mind, you must have some crazy tolerance, lol.

    I'm assuming your personal definiton difference between Easy and Hard is 1 week times spent vs 5 months (maintaining the hours sited above)?

    I am the oldest child of 5 by 8 years when I was 16 I had siblings of 8 7 5 2 patience or death. I was the babysitter on the weekends. I'm 24 now and I work from home. The 2.5m a day thing honestly is about 3 hours if im lucky, 9 if im not. I'm telling you the star pattern is free. I said I had it, not bought it :p how did that get lost in what I said, I dont have the 600 LoH gem, which probably is 14391248billion right now, but the 300 is free.....

    edit: also I have always had a get it done attitude if I want something I just do it, I honestly believe that in "relative comfort" Obtaining 2300 LoH can be done in a weekend about 8 hours each day, same as a average work day if you ask me.

    Well you should be aware that "easy" for the average person is not 8 hours a day for a whole weekend. Sorry we don't live up to your gaming standards.
