    Hockey, WWE, UFC, MLP:FIM, Playing Guitar, Dr. Who, Marvel Comics, Forgotten Realms... Just for a few specific things.
  1. I got it and added you, but never got any responses from the whispers I sent. Just gotta press R to reply, or when you hit enter, type /whisper and then the persons name you want to send the message to. As for going to the weapon/shield combination, I used that until I switched to 2H weapon, then I went back to dual wielding. In each weapon type, there are certain things that make them worth using. With a shield, you will want something that has the 10% crit chance, all resist, huge vitality and big dexterity. 2 Handed, a slot, large crit hit damage, attack speed, and preferably life on hit as well. Dual wield, you want to cover life on hit, attack speed, crit damage, slots if the weapon type can use them to put in emeralds for some crit hit damage.
  2. You can open up a world of hurt with the demon hunter under the right build. Initially, I started off as a Demon Hunter, got to about lvl 30, then decided to try the monk and went all the way until I hit paragon 7. I ended up hitting a road block in the way of not being geared well enough to do anything better than MP1 or 2, so I went back to my Demon Hunter. Having learned from a lot of my mistakes, and having made a lot more money, getting up to lvl 60 was a breeze. I was able to farm the auction better and just gear myself properly. Eventually I got up to paragon 17 and was soloing MP4 until my buddy convinced me to go back to my monk. I used a lot of the gear I could from my Demon Hunter and put it on my monk and my buddy gave me a couple weapons to use since both classes are dexterity based. It didn't take me long to realize how much easier it was to survive with my monk so I started selling off some of my expensive Demon Hunter gear like my Natalya's Reflection for 9 million, Natalya's Bloody Bootprints for 3 million, and Natalya's Embrace for another million and used a lot of that to buy myself some great gear for my monk. Despite having a lower DPS, I find through the build I use that I clear waves a lot faster. Mind you, I could probably rebuild my Demon Hunter and manage to use what I know now to be just as effective. It would just take some experimenting to get there. Overall though, the class was extremely fun and until I got restricted by gear, I could sweep through enemies quite efficiently. As for dropping a turret and running, that's pretty boring. I had a build where I could still tank well enough to stand in the middle of a group of mobs and just keep dishing out damage. You need to have really high critical hit chance and critical hit damage as well as attack speed, and getting enough items with those three stats is just stupid expensive. They are the most expensive class to build as far as i'm concerned which is kind of a turn-off until you can afford it. That ring for instance I had, sure, it was "Nice", but you really needed that critical hit chance and maybe some life on hit, but all of a sudden prices jump up to 100 million. If you can build up your wizard or monk, or both, you can gear them up for a reasonable price and start reaping the benefits of higher magic and gold find on higher MP, and with the new patch, that will only get better in a group. I could help you through the entire inferno campaign with no problem at all once you hit 60 and give you some of the gear right off the bat to do so.
  3. That's usually an issue at that stage, especially once you start getting better gear. When i've died a few times, i'm spending 45k to repair, and dieing just once is close to 10k. The thing is though, if I started with 0 gold, by the time i've gotten around to having to spend 45k to repair, i've made closer to 60k at least. When I was running my demon hunter on MP4, I had over 117k DPS before buffs. With sharpshooter, I was over 200k. The problem was that I was playing a glass cannon. Sure the numbers looked nice, but my repair bills were through the roof and it just got ridiculous. On my monk, before I started playing on MP6 and 7, I had him around 110k without buffs, around 150k with, and I did fine on 4, but I died a lot on 6 even. Solution... I dropped my DPS to 77k, put all my resistances above 500, 2500 life on hit, over 1k life regen, and I may die once or twice on SOME elite packs, but am otherwise just plowing on through. Took me a while to really tailor the build I have and do some rather strange things I never would have tried before. Now my repair bills are only around a few hundred just from getting hit a lot, lol. It's still hard to come by really good items though that are worth selling. Got 2 legendaries on my last run, and I think 1 might be ok to sell for around a million if i'm lucky. =================================================== Just noticed this, but the Public Test Realm for patch 1.0.8 is now available! The link below will tell you the steps you need to take in order to join the public test realm and play. I've been pretty excited about this patch because it will make a lot more things easier and user friendly. Just the multiplayer co-op additions are awesome on their own. You get a 10% bonus to your magic find, gold find and experience for every additional player you have in your party first and foremost! 30% is pretty good in my books when it's free. Even better than that though is that instead of having to go into chat to tell your team that you found an elite or treasure goblin, the game automatically sends you a notification and marks where they are on the map! Lastly.... MORE MONSTERS! In Inferno at least. Act 3 already had a large density, but now the rest of the acts do too. It's going to be a slaughterfest, hahahaha. Oh, one more.... "Experience earned by completing a quest is now granted to players that have reached the level cap" More motivation to hit lvl 60 so you can get quest completion experience. Hello Zoltun Kulle/Belial Run (which I do anyway during my key run for acts 2 and 3, lol) and Azmodan run!
  4. Just put new Ernie Ball acoustic strings on my guitar. New for the company, and they sound about 20% cooler than what I used before, haha. Looking forward to busting out some tunes!

  5. Yeah, MP is Monster Power. I do pretty good on MP7 atm, and if I can sell some of my more expensive items, I should be able to stroll through MP8 soon. I just went through my stash and broke down a page of items I would be willing to share, which ended up being about half of the entire page, lol. It's a good mix of legendaries and rares that have the right stats. I've got a decent amount of intelligence and dexterity items in particular. Lots of amulets, and I think some rings. A few pairs of gloves, some leggings, chest pieces, and weapons. Also was thinking about ways to help other people get money. Sometimes, I don't have enough spaces in the AH to sell all my items I have at the same time, so I thought if others were to auction off on theirs some of the more expensive items, they would get something like a 30% cut from the price set out for it, minus the 15% auction tax. So if I gave you a 3 million gold item and it sold, I would get 2 million back and the remainder would go to the person selling it. That way, they would still get at least 500k just for putting it up. Can slowly build up to having enough money and grinding the auction house hunting for good deals and flipping them. Don't need much to start off with to do that. Would be willing to help with that sort of thing.
  6. 1 to 2 could get you a weapon good enough to continue for a while. You wouldn't get higher than MP3. I have some good monk weapons like the flying dragon I could give away. I've got too many items to sell and wait on to have them bought. Got some decent wizard items with high critical hit chance as well for his other alt. As far as wizards being broken, I agree. They just melt the faces off of the enemy in seconds with a good build. Pretty excited about getting a good group put together though.
  7. I could help you get to lvl 60 pretty easily and once you are, I've got a decent amount of gear for monks in particular and some decent wizard gear as well. Could probably get you surviving on MP4.
  8. This is officially the year of Rainbow Dash! Not only did she perform the first ever double rainboom! But clinched the 2013 MLP Forums March Madness as the NATIONAL CHAMPION! I think I shall call her Antoinette. Bwaahahahaha!
  9. I'm just curious if there are any other Diablo 3 players out there who still play on a regular basis. It's a lot better to have a group in general, and it's a lot easier to get better gear and such if people work to better each other. Personally, i've got plenty of gear that will take a while to sell and more just sitting in my stash that I want to move quickly for cheaper than what it's worth to friends at least. I normally do key runs from Act 2 into Act 3 on MP6 and I would be willing to help others get better in order to do the same, and eventually higher. If you are already there or higher, can always work towards making more money. Would also like to use this topic to suggest any character builds and tips to anybody interested. Just PM me your name and ID # and I will add you. I have two lvl 60's, Monk Paragon 13 and Demon Hunter Paragon 17.
  10. Listening to the Lumineers album on repeat, so good.

  11. I've been sitting back for the latter part of the tournament, but now that it has come down to these two magnificent ponies in the finals, it's time to throw in my 2 cents. So far, and i'm not entirely surprised either, but nearly 100% of the brackets have gone the way i've imagined they would. Knowing both Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash pretty well, being a couple of my favourites, I could see Pinkie wanting to give the win to RD so she could be happy (since she hates to lose, and i'm sure all the RD fans hate losing equally so). In conclusion, vote for Rainbow Dash in the spirit of Pinkie Pie so everyone can Smile, Smile, Smile!
  12. Rainbow Dash is one step away from greatness, and following through with my prediction of coming out on top of it all (50/50 with Applejack, because I thought they would meet in the semi finals instead of Twilight... But SO close! Makes life easier for me though when it came down to that last vote). Now, on to Pinkie Pie and Discord... Sweet jebidiah. This is a match of epic proportions. In one corner, you have a chimera of creatures who wields chaos vs. the reality bending, 4th wall breaking, party animal with a heart of gold. When it came down to it, I voted for Discord strictly because he is pretty much all powerful and has already worked some of his chaos into this entire tournament already! (I'm looking at you Applejack!) As much as I wanted to pick Pinkie Pie, I didn't really imagine it would have had much effect regardless, lol. In the end, I could see Discord just getting bored and has secretly been changing people's votes to Pinkie Pie as a final act of mayhem, bwuahaha. Then again... 10 votes isn't much of a difference and could change overnight. We will just have to see.... Maybe if Pinkie Pie had that potion of TS's from the Double Rainboom, she could take on Discord. Regardless of it all, THIS IS AWESOME!
  13. I could have sworn that everybody had gotten the memo about AJ being the new main character in season 3 by the time things wrapped up in the end. She's just the best gosh darn pony there is. All salute Admiral Applejack!
  14. Looks like I am locked in for skillz as opposed to magic. I see Celestia as a fair ruler, and using magic to cheat in any kind of competition unless otherwise specified, or lack-there-of, she wouldn't take advantage of other ponies and push them onwards to greater achievements, and that menas... final 4! GO RAINBOW DASH! And that means AJ is locked in for my vote against Twilight. If it comes down to RD vs. AJ, i just don't know what I will do! It's like a nightmare come true! How do the likes of me and you, pick between the best of the west two? (*assumptions* *assumptions*)
  15. Wow, I am so happy that absolutely everything has worked out the way i've wanted it to so far. Everything has made sense as per my voting criteria. The tough choices are going to be the Princess Celestia vs. RD and Twilight vs. AJ. Do I vote in favour of powerful magic winning the round, or awesome skills? As for when it gets to Discord and Luna. I'm going to have to give it to Discord. It takes a full team to beat him, and I just don't think Luna could do it solo. On to this round, Pinkie has just got too many tricks and impossible skills to lose to Sweetie Belle.
