Gaming Diablo 3 Players in the Community


Recommended Posts

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.

I haven't played in a good while, but if enough people show interest around here, I might jump back in.

 

I've got a Paragon...8 (?) Barb, and I'm not really that good at the game, to be honest.  Stuck in Inferno act 2.

Oh man, you two make me feel so inferior with your characters. The highest I have is lvl 58 Wizard and lvl 54 Monk. I'm trying to get back into the game to get into the paragon levels and get some better gear cause I feel so under-geared right now.

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.

The other thing is, both my high lvl characters are only on Hell difficulty with Monster Power of 5. My Wizard is in Act II and my Monk is near the end of Act I. I feel as though i'm doing something wrong XD.

Gear is very easy to some by now, you can build a decent set for 1-2m on the AH.

 

I'm not entirely sure what monster power is possible with that level of gear on a monk, I played wizard which is a bit broken tbh :P

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.

Hmm just to make sure, when you say MP3, you mean Monster Power lvl 3 right?? Just want to be sure we are on the same page as far that's concerned haha. If that's the case, i'll most likely turn mine down then cause it kinda kicks my ass at times when on Monster Power lvl 5 on my Wizard.

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.

Ahh ok. I usually go between MP3 and MP5 with the bit of gear that I have. My lvl 55 Monk is currently doing around 13,600 damage on Act II Magda on Hell difficulty and my lvl 58 Wizard is currently doing around 8,500 or 9,500 damage on Act II sewers before finding Zolton Kuelles Archives on Hell difficulty lol. All my other characters (since I have one of every class) are pretty much in their lvl 30's starting Nightmare difficulty. I'm working with each individually to get them all close to the same lvl as one another. Usually works out well when you play all day and don't have a life like I do. happy.png

 

Money is a huge problem i'm having in my game. I mean it was my own damn fault, but before this topic got started, I got desperate and wanted to increase my Monk's and Wizard's damage and bought 2 weapons from the AH (one for my Monk and one for my Wizard). So I went from about 1 million gold to 200,000 gold. I had to stop myself from spending it all at the AH because I want a buffer in case I die alot, then I can afford to repair everything at the higher lvls.

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!

Wow. I'm beginning to feel extremely underpowered compared to you lol. I shouldn't feel that way though because you're a hell of alot higher geared and difficulty than I am.

 

Do you like the Demon Hunter?? I have mine to like lvl 20 and i'm not really sure how I feel about it. I mean with my Wizard, I have like shields and ways of keeping myself alive in dire situations along with the awesome hydra and with my Monk, I have the auras and water summon and pretty fast attack speed. The Demon Hunter just doesn't feel very offensive to me. I may just be playing mine wrong but in order for me to somewhat survive I have to run forward and drop a turret and run for my life behind it haha.

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.

Yeah now that i'm back into Diablo, I am willing to try all my characters again and see if I can progress them to the heights of my Monk and Wizard. I need to get them higher anyways cause I have my whole stash filled with rares that I would find with my high lvls to give to my lower lvls as they leveled up.

 

One thing I feel i'm doing wrong with my Monk is, I usually dual wield with him, but earlier I got a shield that upped my damage from about 10k to 12k. Basically I traded 0.10 attack speed for a 2k damage boost and block chance. I'm starting to wonder if that was really worth the trade-off.

 

I'd love to play with other people or in a group. I've played with my friends brother before but he knows nothing about Diablo or the series and he isn't really good lol. I sent you a friend request earlier but forgot to put a note on it saying it was me.

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.

Hmm I either wasn't on when you added me...or...if the messages take place in that like message box thing when in game, then I might not have seen them because I think I have that message/chat box turned off. I'll check that next time next time I get on.

 

That's good advice for the weapons. I'll have to look at that on my Monk and see what I have that I might be able to change, preferably in the gem department.
