login errors are just what this game needs to bring back the players

Um, what? I said I had a game. I couldn't make a game for a few hours last night but I was watching the footy and doing my washing anyway.

My post refers to the actual game play, drops etc. Maybe once we get a shitload of those new levels it might change but I can't see myself getting nailed to this game again. The AH prices are still ridiculous, too.

AH will bottom out, i thought it was way too easy to get items, can't pick up blues anymore and the damage on most items over 60 has improved a lot.

got 2 legendaries last night, none of the cool new ones... but a 61 ammy and Messerschmidts reaver in the same game.

So weapons are worth crafting? The recipes I see are all lvl61/62 weapons, will they even sell?

Before I stopped playing I couldn't make it passed the first quest in A3, now I've solo'd D... Was there yet another round of nerfs?

I crafted a 750 dps intel and life steal weapon that sold for 83k gold... it cost 119k + mats to make. Not worth it. Of four attempts, that was the best one.

Thought as much, I won't bother with weapons then.

I've got a few ilvl62 +4 mod recipes, are they worth it? Any slots that sell better than others?

i thought the point of playing video games was to have fun?

incidentally, i've been having some fun playing with my new WD. 4-man doc party with pets and spamming corpse spiders is so boss

heh i was right apparently trail of cinders buff was a typo...queue nerfs and over 75 pages of crying on the US forums.

not sure why people would think it was supposed to be %1500 damage though, seems like everyone is stupid from where i'm sitting.

^ expected really. it throws the DH resource balance way out of wack if you're using discipline offensively. the problem for blizz is they shouldn't have fucked it up so bad in the first place because people are finding it fun and it comes across as another nerf instead of a bug fix

if you're basing future potential fun based on finding legendaries you're gonna have a bad time...

i haven't played my main much since 1.04 apart from trying a few diff builds.. less motivated to farm solo and everyone's pretty much left the game so i actually still haven't killed inferno D derps so if you're up for it some time maybe we can give it a go

currently splitting my time between my WD and HC monk. both are still fairly low lvl and so far i've only soloed in HC, taking my time incrementally gearing up with whites and blues lol. it's been quite a balancing act because i'm finding i play real cavalier with the monk's skills.. thunderclapping into mobs and shit and forgetting to pot a lot of the time heh

no way am i trying HC yet, i do have a bunch of kit for a Monk build though, some awesome Fist Weapons and Dext kit,

ammy
220 dex
100 vit
60% crit
5.5 chance to crit

juts trying to level him to 60 then i can free up some farm space in my stash... but always end up farming act 1 with Barb

tried Act 2 and got hurt a fair bit, mostly just the poison things and not too bad, but even my 25k dps wasn't too effective against elite packs.

i think with the combination of skill buffs and monster nerfs this is a good patch to give it a go. my PC has gone back onto wifi and even with the crappy ping i haven't had any issues with lag

wish i had spent less time on the one toon and levelled more alts while there were still easy xploits

Levelling is still easy enough, got Monk up to 47ish just running straight through and only Act 3 nightmare now.

guess HC is different though, but before lag was shit so lose/lose really.

the number #1 paragon level hero was streaming on http://www.twitch.tv/alkaizerx earlier - he's up to lvl 97..

he's only picking up legendaries his stash is full of unID legendaries and he's even missed some legendary/set drops during his stream (people let him know on chat but he didn't even bother to go back for them)

he does an act 3 clear in 15-20 minutes.

barbs need a nerf so bad it's not funny

i think the 1b worth of gear has a bigger impact on his efficiency: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/a...1727/hero/2190

but there is no denying the movespeed bonus of tornados combined with ww is OP

The issue with nerfing barbs is that without good gear they are weak as piss. It's always hard to balance melee characters.

not sure what's happened but WD has got me rehooked. all i can think about is levelling him.. leaping spiders seems amazing but i never see it used in inferno which makes me wonder if its not viable later on? got this grand vision of running a pet build with a bow

levelling fresh toons is still a bit of a toil.. wish they had searchable games like d2 so i could find some power runs. anyone still playing want to help with rushing? will return the favour

From 1-100, I probably did miss around 1 to 2 dozen legendaries just due to the nature of how my abilities work and not always paying 100% attention. I think going as fast as I was will still net me more legendaries over time instead of double checking every monster I kill.

oh how times have changed

my WD only just finished normal, so it's the rushing to inferno part that's the pain.. i'm trying to work out the best way to do it with the level requirements for each difficulty, so i'll still have to grind some levels before progressing but it should be quicker if i can go straight to act 3 runs

btw has your build changed much since the patch?

Don't really play any more, I log on to do an Act 3 run then realise none of my friends are playing any more so I just stop haha. Yeah before 1.0.4 I spent all of my left over RMAH money to buy set gear etc. because there was nothing else to do with the money really. I'm about 550 all resist with 800 LoH so it's a lot easier now with 1.0.4 and use of my pets.

I use dogs and giant now which is so much easier now for WD

yeah i'm the same so i split playtime between toons to keep things fresh.. pubs are heaps better now too for the odd bit of co-op paragon farming

that's pretty much why i'm jumping on the docwagon, with pets now viable he seems to be a great solo class. it would be nice to have some 60s ready for pvp too

you get to level 60 just playing through.. have my Monk up to 57 now, found it quite easy leveling with the massive 1K dps hammer i found that has 200 to stats and -12 level requirement, can probably level up everything but Demon Hunter with the less level requirement weapons. just don't need any armor when your damage is that high.

that will leave just the wiz and demon hunter to do and i'm leveling them close together so they can use the same kit (i found wit monk) and make it easier.

I want to play my DH more but I don't like the play style as much at 60. He has 34k dps (using the out of range talent), about 250 AR and 20% crit. Can anybody suggest a good build for that?

yea guess so if you have a pre-determined build and don't like the game at all

most fun i have had in ages trying out all the different skills for the first time.

i don't have a pre-determined build in mind and i've tried every rune available

it's a pretty big leap in logic to go from "minimizing time not in inferno" to "don't like the game at all"
