  • #1
    Hey everyone! I hate to be a bother but I just have a quick question for you guys.

    here is a link to my char profile:

    http://us.battle.net...8/hero/10369948

    according to noxxic the priority for survivability is:

    Resists = Armor > Strength = Vitality

    Just curious what values I need to worry about and upgrade (id like to keep the IK set cause.. im nostalgic like that and finally saved up enough to buy those pieces. so just curious what stats i need on other items :))

    Thanks for all your help!

    You are missing out on a lot of attack speed/critical hit chance/critical hit damage in your rings, amulet and bracers. That is where a lot of the damage comes from, and into the fray works well with more critical hit chance. It all depends on how much gold you have though. Because good rings cost a lot. You should be able to find a good upgrade for those shoulders pretty cheap (again, this depends on the amount of gold). Try looking for a cheap Vile Ward here. Also, look for Inna's Temperance as pants. You will loose the All Resist but gain movement speed, attack speed and critical hit chance. Depth Diggers are also an option but there you will only gain in strength and all resist.

    But if you are willing to loose the Boulder Breaker (you will stil have the complete set bonus) you can look for 2 good 1 hands.

    What I like about your gear is that it will probably give you some nice upgrades with loot 2.0. There are still some items left that can easily be upgraded, maybe even with Loot 1.0 without using the AH.

    Hey man! Thanks for the reply! Ive upgraded a couple of things, and Surprisingly in A4 inferno runs im still doing fairly good, the only thing that really kills me is fire chain mobs and arcane sentrys.

    http://us.battle.net...8/hero/10369948

    I got a new ring, and i have about 1.5 mill in the bank at the moment... what would be my next move do you think? Bracers?

    For the weapon, is dual wielding really that much better? i dont mean that sarcastically, i mean is the difference in stats substantial?

    Here are my suggestions . Now remember I'm on my phone atwork so ah prices idk.

    Skills
    Drop wa cry and use rend
    Nerves of steel if u survive ok.

    Gear by my priority

    bracers _ look for strong arm or lacunies. Both are cheap. Need cc on.them . Even craft rare boa ones with cc if had money. Look if rare for.200 str some vitand least 5 cc

    Innas pants. Highest str is 99 look like 90 plus. Should be cheap n nice upgrade
    If not innas go black thorns or a nice rare set 150 str n vit or ar 2 socks

    Jewlery. All 3 need changed. Look for a combination or 3 of these 5
    Cc
    Cd
    Atkspd
    Str
    Avg damage

    Ar if you need it

    These are stupid cheap.

    Craft some shoulders or get the legandary ones..... can't think of name.. look for 200 plus str 100vit ar least 70

    Weapon is ok for now maybe lookfor a str skorn if sticking with a 2h . Least 1400 dps if no ls on it .

    These are my off the dome suggestions without looking at the ah. Take your 1.5 mill and.budget it something like
    125k buy out for each item.

    Now these are not gonna get you mp10 however will inprove your performance.

    Key stats to aim for is 40 cc without scoundra

    If need more help add me if on us ashkore21#1211

    once again, thank you for your post, I did add you so if you get a request for Gorship, thats me! :)

    http://us.battle.net...8/hero/10369948

    i switched to dual wielding and kept my IK weapon incase i wanna be nostalgic again, and i can definitley tell a difference. My sustain with 2 weapons is much higher, much much higher, and my stats look a lot more "even" (if thats the proper way to look at them). I posted my link again (Even though its already in the OP and my second post) but if you get a chance to see the changes and get your input... i am officially broke at this point so i got some farming ahead of me and just selling items all day. I really dont know how to price items on the AH or tell whats worth selling which really stinks.

    anyway. Thanks again!

    Edit: i notice on the page for my profile it says my crit is increased by 28%. when im ingame my crit chance says its 49% and dmg increased by 185%

    Jewlery looks a little better. Nice dual weapon combo. Strong arms look ok. I would say stop on act 4 and goffarm some act one feild of misory and wheeping hollow act two donglar oasis or act three keeps. This will atleast get you some experience. What mp you on and alsoif your on in aproximately 3 half hours ill be on for a little
  • #7
    curious.. how come its better to go back to act 1? act 4 public games seem to have the most amount of people.. i could do act 1 solo and sell everything which i like a lot. I would need some gear for my soundral what are some cheap options?

    Thanks again sir, you have been a great help!

    farming a4 inferno has NEVER been a good idea. A1 has the best mob density, easiest monsters for melee and overall in general and it has the quickest routes. A4 mobs can stun you and its just too spread out.

    maybe im thinking of a3? ( im thinking of azmodan runs/the heart of sin etc). but regardless if A1 has the best mob density, just wondering wont the gear drop not be high ilvls if im doing A1 runs?
  • #10
    yes thats act 3. if you use monster power you the gear will rool like a i63 . its worth it trust me.

    with my gear what MP should i use? Also what stats am i looking for to stack on my scoundral.

    Thanks again for your help everyone :)
  • #12
    just experiment. try at mp1 then go mp3 then 5 . ect. whenever it feels like its taking longer and tougher back down a level
  • #13
    So i just run A1 fields of misery and there was a significant lack of mobs compared to A3 runs... im not sure how this could be more effective.

    festering woods was a little better but still quite a lot of running around. with a lot of gaps of no mobs.
  • #14
    for monsterdensity to improve, you have to run monsterpower 1 or higher (to affect density and number of monsters in act1, act2 and act4).
    Make your peace...Quickly!

    Alright Good to know thank you.

    It looks like MP 2 is all I can really do.... my biggest issue is when i get frozen or CC'd and get WW my health back
  • #16
    Use of wrath of bezerker keeps you from cc and frozen. If your problem is if falls too fash then you may be killing mobs to fast and or your not dumping or using enough fury to keep wotb up. If you notice your fury staying full span sprint and battle rage to dump fury. Remember you only extend wotb when generating fury . So if its stayiing full your not generating
  • #17
    did some updating and there is a thread on here with a rend build. been using it and WOW! is it effective! may be able to get to MP4 solo here pretty quick!

    if you get a chance to check my gear and see the changes, I would love your input. Im still getting hit decently hard, so im guessing ill need to look at updating strength vit and armor all around as i upgrade items.
  • #18
    Honestly with that low of dps and no life on hit . That's why your servival is bad. Take off neves of steal use bloodthirsty. Also try getting a 1300 dps skorn with life steal. If budget allows. If you can be on around 730 am est time I should be on and can help ya out some. But skorn is killer for rendbuilds. Also I just build a set for wd and realised cc cd atkspeed rings are stupid cheap. But don't nuy em I have a few laying around ill thow your way.
  • #19
    surprised you mention life on hit, i have 2.9 which is super low but all the skills in a rend build give life no? hm.. i thought my weapons were actually ok (cheap starter weapons) but ok at the least, i followed the guide on here for the rend build and the stats for items.
  • #20
    Rend with Skorn = Freeking awesome! ;P
