    At every point until and including Hell, everytime you feel a bit impotent go to AH and get better dps. According to my Wizard friend anyway.

    stating to get annoyed with farming act 1 inferno... the gear i need cost 100s of 1000s of not 1 million or more and my monk is still really undergeared. 19K HP, 15K DPS and 150 resist with the aura that maxes all to ur highest resist. I really like my monk but am tired of farming the same crap over and over for gear drops that dont suit me and dont sell on the AH even tho most of my blues and yellows are 50K or less >_<

    only 150 resists? there's your problem. Look for double stat items (all res + your res + dex or vit), then sort by ARMOR and look for the best buy! Or sort by buyout price and there are loads of items for 5-20k. Heck my level 53 monk has nearly 200 resistances.

    If your playing a wizzard it should be easy. Set down Venom Hydra, move off Screen, then run Magic Missile (with Heat Seeker) and aim in the general direction of the boss. I kill so many Champs/bosses when they aren't on my screen, many times I find myself looping back to see if they got stuck on something then I see loot all over. You can do it without Heat Seekers if you keep an eye on spell effects popping onto your screen to give you an idea of where the mobs are, but that requires paying close attention, and I'd rather be planning a smooth kite path than trying to spot where they are off my screen.

    I use Force Armor and Glass Cannon. As I said I cleared Act 1 and when I made it to the Butcher I was far to squishy, I was able to kill him, but I couldn't let him hit me at all. So I farmed for a few days and went from 19k hp to 30k, from 24k dps to 45k, picked up like 1k armor, and then I invested in some Physical Resist (incase kiting fails a bit and they get close) and Fire Resist (for Mortar packs). I seem to be doing fine in Act 2 with that setup, though I do feel a lot more fragile than in Act 1. I'm honestly almost thinking about dropping Force Armor, just to see if it has any effect, because I swear things hit me for more than 35% of my HP, but I'm probably just crazy there. (I moved into Act 2 with like 36.5k DPS, I just got some new gear today)

    Here's my stats as of right now

    (though I said this a few days ago about this, I might change out astral Presence for Prodigy since I have enough Arcane Power)

    My bad, dude: that's the armor i'm using, with the prismatic rune. Will try with the force rune instead.

    Thanks for the heads up, dude!

    I was easily able to dispatch Leoric in Inferno but died several times against elites/champions before him. I most probably died at least 30 times already in Inferno and they're all because of elites/champions.

    Yeah, I've heard people trying Prismatic, but I guess the damage reduction on hit is just better. Makes it so you can't get 1 or 2 shot.

    To DHs, try Hungering Arrow - Devouring Arrow / Elemental Arrow - Frost Arrow

    It really kicks elite/champ/boss ass.

    Tried it but for some reason, 2 shots and i'm dead :confused:

    I'm trying these (attach): i figure if i catch monsters in the bubble, a hydra will kill them much faster, but that's a theory.

    The magic weapon is to try and kill them faster as, with it, i get over 26K DPS.

    I would drop Slow time for sure, it doesn't really scale with anything, if you are using it for the slow grab Blizzard instead. But personally I would ditch Blur and get Temporal Flux, swap out Electrocute for Magic Missile (now your Magic Missile and Arcane Orb both slow). And I would swap out Mirror Image for Teleport with Fracture (those clones don't have a life bar and it gives you a better kiting tool).

    Your build seems to be focused too much on being hit, something like Blur just scares me. I maybe get hit once, and if I do then I teleport. So "I only need that damage reduction on 1 hit usually, so it works well for that. And Magic Weapon is great, it's a must right now, it gives like 30% DPS, not 15 that it says.

    Magic weapon get's me from 21607 to 26143 DPS: that's ~20%.

    Dunno about you but my electrocute is super fast because i have 2.6 ATS (attacks per second). Which rune on magic missile?

    As for slow time, i placed it ready to try but haven't actually tried it. Because time inside that bubble flows much slower for enemies and much faster for allies, the idea was to do a hydra venom and place that bubble so that the hydra had more time to act: haven't really tested it, though.

    Also: can't swap mirror image for teleport because they are from different set's of skills.

    The idea behind blur is so that, if i'm hit, the hit doesn't kill me, and them 20% melee sure help.

    I was just throwing the 30% guesstimate out there, I just knew it was greater than the 15% it says. but anything will scale with that attack speed, I personally use Seeker on Magic Missile, that way you can use cover and shoot around corners, but the one that does 143% is great as well.

    If you have enough movement speed you won't need slow time too much. Even sometimes I can just run in a circle with Hydra in the center and the enemy's just kind run in a smaller circle staying in the poison. A bit more movement speed and I should be able to do that for all but Fast groups.

    Also turn on Elective Mode in your options. You can run basically any abilities on any button, if you were so inclined you could run every single ability from the Armor skill set, though they would over ride each other I'm pretty sure. Elective Mode is where it's at, really opens up classes for more potential.

    And I understand the point of Blur, but with Force Armor you won't get 1 shot, and with Teleport rather than Mirror Image, you will get away after that 1 hit. So running something that gives your abilities slows will remove the need for the Slow time (since now you will have 2 abilities that slow and do damage on top of that). It will also give you a more consistent slow, you won't be dependent on the Slow time CD coming up, you will just always have a small slow.

    Guys i have stopped playing until things changes.
    I have a DH in Act3 Inf. But i can't play there successfully, so i farm butcher or magda, but the thing is after 20 hours of farming i never found anything i could use (save some rings), and only managed to save 4m. But that is nothing since every item i need to buff my dps is around that amount. So i would need over 20m to play nice in act3 and i got sick of hundreds of crap with butcher runs.
    Yeah my time deserves better things
    NinkobEi and AlienIsGOD say thanks.

    Yeah I'm farming ACT1 Inferno until they fix Acts 2,3 and 4 in patch 1.3.

    Not going to bust my ass trying and lose money only so they can lower the difficulty lol.

    Dunno how you dudes go to the butcher but, if you take the time to track down and kill 5 packs of elites while trying to find the butcher, it will give you a boost in magic find and gold find. I change my quest and start @ the cursed hold for this.

    If i don't do this, i get 4 or 5 blue items from the butcher. If i do, i get 3 to 5 yellow items + 3 to 5 blue items from the butcher, not to mention the around 50000-60000 gold from the halls of agony 2 until the butcher.

    Sure: it takes more time but the reward is also better.

    I have been farming for the past week or so, I can do a pure damage setup and plow through Act I, but once I step foot in Act II, even if I go 100% defensive I get destroyed. Just going to farm and wait until they lower the difficulty to actually start progressing.

    Well thank you captain obvious :laugh: I think that's how most people farm A1, or any act (except that sweet spot in A4 where Tyrael kills the purple)

    All the lvl 60 stuff i get (that's is worthless, ofc), i salvage: the rest, i sell to vendors. That's about 7-10 lvl 60 items or so.

    Found 2 plans so far but only for "low level" exalted items :(

    EDIT

    Make that 3 plans now, since the butcher just gave me another: this one, i already have.
