    Probably not much, I haven't looked at the actual price on the AH. But armor is low, block chance is good, resists are low, stats are ok (but for the one class that usually doesn't use shield, though they might to keep the death repair costs down), the thing it has going for it is the Attack Speed, and since i don't think any other shield has that, it's hard to judge, that could make it worth a lot as it might actually be a worthy shield DPS wise even compared to a Source item. But based on the other stats I wouldn't say much, so it's really a question of how much that AS is worth.

    Your also talking about wading through Act 3 without much of a problem. which means you most likely will have no problem finishing the game in the gear you got. So that shouldn't be a huge issue, items will appear you can use, just won't be as common.

    Because no one bought any of my items for just 5x their sell value. I guess people are thinking "it's too cheap."

    Doesn't mean I don't want to look at upgrading any items. Basically it means that I'm going to have to float 2 kinds of currency in order to get items i want. I need to accumulate in game gold and real money at the same time. Imagine if the US switched over to a combination gold standard + dollar monetary policy and some items in some stores could be bought with gold and others only dollars. Just stupid.

    I understand that you want upgrades, I'm just saying you are in the 1% here (if not a percent lower than that). At a certain point in any gear accumulating game there comes a point when there just arent many upgrades out there, and you just are getting to that point. It's like Donald Trump saying he can't afford a new jet or something :p You'll find your upgrades on the GAH, it just will take extra time for those items to appear. some of these super expensive items are not going to sell on the RMAH, right now it just came out people are dumping cash in it like fools, but I doubt that flow will keep up, especially with the nerf people won't feel the need to gear as much if they can get through the content without spending $20 - $50 or more.

    you must be a wizard, mine went from 46k to 31.5k :/ But now I'm enjoying my barb, I'll re-itemize the Wizz later.

    I'd say Monk, because they can summon their own tank. And they build resists easier. Both Monk and Barb are viable tanks, it's just easier to gear (cheaper) a Monk to do it. I'm not sure on Monk DPS specs, but theres only one really viable spec for Barbs, and you still need to build tanky items, just you don't use a shield (when I equip a shield on my Barb my survivability goes down, funny as that is).

    no it didn't ACTUALLY go down that much... that famous 30% instead of 15% display bug of magic weapon....

    Yes, Sparkflint Familiar is actually very very good, sopecially if you use your primary and secondary a lot (as it obviously doesn't shoot from hydras but from you)

    I just encountered an unkillable monster called the shade of nar gulle. Looked it up and apparently it's a now known bug in 1.0.3 so be careful.

    I hate to quote myself but another warning. After it hit 1 health (where it became unkillable) it did suddenly 1 shot me when i was at full life. So if you're a HC character and you run into this guy, be careful because he might just turn and hit you for several billion damage.

    Even accounting that, I want to say I was at 37k without Magic Weapon Pre-Patch now I'm at 28k, so still a massive loss, but Magic Weapon display fix does make it a bit smaller.

    So 1.0.3 is crap and has broken the game IMO. Yeah it is easier to play in Inferno, but not easier to progress.

    Please do this, and you will be amazed. Make sure all you gear is 100% repaired. Go to any dungeon and break 1 item...vase, urn, whatever. Then go back to town and see if you have a repair bill.

    It cost me 46g to break open 1 crate. WTF.

    So I play a wizzard, and alot of my skills are AoE...which means i end up paying for every item I break with a RANGED SPELL. How that hurts my armor I can't figure out.

    I have loot gear with +266% GF w/ 5 NV and used to net about 200K a run, now I am netting around 80K.

    Highest repair bill so far w/o dying and armor not in "yellow or red" = 31K.

    Not that I see, but IMO this is still a beta... it took them something like 13 years to make this game and it still feels rushed. They didn't even test the end game difficulty, ie: the most important part. It's as if you added an auto parking feature in a car, but you never tested, then act surprised when it crashes your car and release a bunch of patches, which make it crash in different ways

    I'm sad I paid full price for this

    Actually this is the first game I've payed full price for in over a year, if not more. I feel robbed

    They are jut randomly trying stuff in hopes of changing things... They nerfed attack speed by 50%, but that's a huge nerf just because they wanted to seem tough. If they had added diminishing returns, I would have been much happier

    If they had taken DII and added better graphics, I'd rather play that then DIII
