What is the average gold needed to spend in AH, full gear, all items, in order to handle inferno act 2, 3 and 4?? for Wiz
I don't buy from the AH (I do brouse it to laugh at the prices), but for a well equipped character to run all the way through inferno, and depending upon the deals you find, you would be looking at somewhere between 10 and 50 million gold. It seems good items will cost you between 1 and 5 million each. Exceptionally good items can run in the 10s of millions each.

I saw one item that had a buyout price of 800 million gold. lol

I can do act 1 2 3, until that Arreat Crater, Im getting pwned in there by elites. Once I get at least three of the following: Desecrator, Jailer, Vortex, Arcane Enchanted and Freeze Im dead.

anyway some buyout prices on AH are overpriced,

I have a trick to share: to have a better chance of finding cheaper items, type in the search buyout price "99999999" then sort it from low to high.

that should remove all bid items and you should come up with the cheapest item available. start from there until you get the item you need. sometimes I would find a super cheap but really good item that I don't need, and I would still buy it. Double the price and Sell it again :laugh:

guess I need to farm act 1 again and again until I get millions of gold :banghead:

It all matters on what your shopping and for what class. If you want the best of the best, be prepared to pay the prices. I have spent between 300 - 500k on numerous pieces of my gear, and thats stuff that should be good enough to push me right into Act IV. The few great Legendaries there are is where prices go insane. I bought most of the Rares I need now for my wizard for the prices I talked about, now we'll see how far I can make it, if I need those Legendaries, I'll get them eventually, but it will be funded by the gear I've also sold on the AH, so it pays for itself, don't have anything else to spend the money on.

Yea but you're lucky to not be melee. Currently it'll probably cost you around a million per item to get to act 4 inferno as melee. Probably more than that.

Does anybody have a direct link to the US download so I can start to download it now. It's going to take at least 48hours for me.

If you are building a non dps barbarian (focussing solely on tankiness and survivablility) you can get away with 1 mil, but that means you will need friends to do the dps for you while you aggro everything else. Took me 2 days to go from level 30 (end of normal) to level 60 with a wizard friend about 10 levels higher than me at the start of our little adventure, and now that we are both level 60 we can easily farm out a few million a day (but Dota 2 happened)

You forget, I leveled a Barb to 60, made it into Inferno and cleared Act 1. Then realized it was BS and re-rolled a Wizard to 60 and made it half way through Act 2 just a few days after hitting 60. I had no real issue clearing Act 1 on the Barb, but I realized to progress as that class into Act 2 and beyond I would be forced to play that class in a manner which I didn't find entertaining, and since I play games for fun, the Barb got put on hold.

Managed to kill the butcher on my 1st try @ inferno: didn't manage that on any other difficulty, heh!

On act 2, 2 things: either i get hit 2 times and i'm dead or i'm hit once and i'm dead. Tried a shield instead of a source to see if armor and / or res was the problem and, even though i have 7000 armor and 580+ res (with storm armor), the same thing happens.

The fact that my ping is always over 200 doesn't help :(

I have a tough time with my wiz, the little fast guys always seem to gang up on me. Just recently started to try mirror image + teleport though, so maybe that will help. It just seems like wizzies die a whole lot more than barbs atm.

Awesome, Delta. When you get it downloaded and working double check your tag to make sure it's right and I'll add you to my list of friends so we can get together and die horribly together when you get up in levels. :laugh:

I'd have been happy to give you a guest pass but I didn't get any when I bought it online. :ohwell:

I have a tough time with my wiz, the little fast guys always seem to gang up on me. Just recently started to try mirror image + teleport though, so maybe that will help. It just seems like wizzies die a whole lot more than barbs atm.
Those can be pains, just got to find a good kite path. I don't think I could remove any button I got for Mirror Image, but 12% movement Speed + Teleport (Fracture) has been enough for me to kite just about anything even in Act II, just sometimes I need to find a good landmark to kite around.

As a Wizz I feel I could solo Act I naked (except for a pair of boots with 12% movement speed) as long as things didn't reflect damage or have an enrage timer.

Managed to kill the butcher on my 1st try @ inferno: didn't manage that on any other difficulty, heh!

On act 2, 2 things: either i get hit 2 times and i'm dead or i'm hit once and i'm dead. Tried a shield instead of a source to see if armor and / or res was the problem and, even though i have 7000 armor and 580+ res (with storm armor), the same thing happens.

The fact that my ping is always over 200 doesn't help :(
I would ditch the Storm Armor, having a strategy of enemies actually hitting you in Act 2 + is just going to be death. Swap to Energy Armor (Force Armor).

The first time I killed the Butcher on Inferno I had such low HP that I had to keep him visibly off my screen. I just set down my Hydra and hid. The Butcher ended up getting a hold of me at the end yanking me in and 1 shotting me. Then my Hydra's poison pools killed him, lol. And I got the Achieve for killing him faster than 2 min while on Inferno. Which made me laugh as I literally cast no damaging spells, the Hydra alone basically got that achieve, which is insane, that thing is just crazy good.

A lot of people just run Blizz/VH, but I just can't that build is too boring, running Heat Seeking Magic Missiles and Tap the source Arcane Orbs (along with Temporal Flux for the slow) is just a much more entertaining build with extra burst potential.

If I had to keep a boss visibly off my screen, that means no one will die. Not me, not the boss.

How do you survive without force armor? I'm wondering if I should start building defensive on my wiz, and take off glass canon. he's just far too squishy (though I know the point is to not get hit, that's not really possible)
