    Not really surprising. A lot of people who make good money at their jobs have more cash to spend on leisure things than they do time to farm. It's been that way since the first MMOs.
    A friend of mine made a couple of thousand selling Everquest characters/items.

    The last time I looked the global market for virtual goods was at about 1.2 billion in annual sales. It's probably higher now.

    It's quite possile if you dedicate your time and energy to it. I just don't find it interesting enough. You could probably do better day trading penny stocks on the real stock market if that kind of thing floats your boat.

    Act 1 Hell was easy enough, but the elite packs of Act 2 are disgusting!!!


    I seem to always get stuff that I hate like reflect damage or invulnerable on EVERY SINGLE PACK

    I think about 40% of the packs were invulnerable this time, and 40% were reflect damage

    btw my battle tag is NSTER#1691

    Trying to make people that are making a buck feel bad is just envy, until you sell something of your own.
    Also i'm not from US, and basically with that money ill use for PC parts, etc, so basically i can just sell items for how much i want without any issue with taxes, lol, :nutkick:

    WTF had nothing to do with making people feel bad, it was more about if you didn't know about it and you lived in the US don't be surprised to be billed if you sell to much...

    Save your gems. Did you see the upcoming changes for 1.0.3? They are making them cost significantly less.

    Also, to the people complaining about hell...it's an absolute cake walk. Wait until you get to Inferno. I'm playing through Inferno on my Barb and DH.

    dmg stat/res all/vit, in that order, should be top priority for pretty much every class I think. obviously some slots have certain outliers you want to look for.

    Survivability is far more important than damage when you hit high levels.
    Remember ... you are doing 0 DPS if you are dead.

    Also, Hell level is not exactly a cake walk, but if you compare mob HPs, Act to Act, Hell Vs. Inferno, the difference seems to be about a factor of 10.

    Sadly? I'd weep with joy if I found that. I haven't found anything I can use in quite awhile now.

    @phanbuey : A wise old Barbarian once told me this ...
    Resistance > Vitality > (dmg stats) > Armor. He survives a lot better than I do.

    Okay he's not old, it was Magibeg, but his barb does a lot better than my monk when it comes to standing toe-to-toe with mobs.

    The problem I'm having is that if I find an item that gives me a bump in something like res or life, I take a HUGE hit on damage. I found a shield that gives me 3000+ more life but I lose 9000 in damage. :wtf:
    Even with sockets and gems it's a tough balancing game.

    The Diablo games have always been a treasure hunt, but after awhile you just want to yell "Throw me a bone, Will ya ?!??". :laugh:

    unfortunately I'm a barb so doesn't really work for me:p

    It was great fun, n-ster. You did great in some of the ugly situations and I started to wonder if you even needed us to "plow the road" for you. :toast:

    I can't believe I died the one time, most of the time I wasn't even taking damage ... talk about not paying attention. :roll: :roll:

    @n-ster : I had to run, but you'll find that your fellow TPU'ers don't give up on you so easily.
    If D3 had an acheivement for lots of deaths and another for giving res's, I'd have the first and Magibeg the latter ... in the first hour of him helping me in hell level. :roll:

    Wait 'til we all get together in inferno.

    Good times playing with everyone. :toast:
