I was one of those players in the category of "Stuck in a brick wall". Yeah, yeah, yeah, call me "bad" all you want, I was mashing CDs, which you can find on my Demon Hunter on my profile (As of February 13th, 2013), on MP0, which I thought was a nerfed haven. I was wrong, horribly wrong in fact.
What motivated me was a Rare Pants upgrade that I found in Act 3. I soloed Siege Breaker, Cydea, Azmodan, Iskatu, and Rakkanoth before I got in a group for Izual/Diablo. And I am a launch day player, hence the nine months in the title.
If I had the gear to comfortably farm MP1-10, I would gladly farm Act 3 to Paragon 100 if I wanted to waste away my life that much. But I wasted 9 months attempting to complete the game, I struggle on elite packs and its a miracle how I even soloed the bosses after Ghom and prior to Izual without requiring a group. To reach Paragon 100 is horribly daunting, I would need about 100-300k DPS without Sharpshooter to bother with the "Alk Route" in Act 3, because MP10 yields more EXP now than ever before.
What I can tell you, is this. This is not a "I am whining about how bad this game is" thread, as all of my Brick Wall problems stem from myself, not the game. I should be blaming myself for not ponying up the gold or the time to earn or buy gear, like that chance pants upgrade. This is not a begging thread, I just say "What if" and call it a day in one of the paragraphs.
I will look around for gear around the... 50-200k radius, because that is usually as much gold as I carry around. Not a tycoonist, that's for certain. I will probably be joining the Demon Hunter forums and looking for givaways in the way of gear to help begin to farm MP10.
Have a nice day, I hope the journey is worth it.
