    I have calculated ur Dex and Dps with DH dps calculator excel and it gives me 41k dps and 2100dex ... :S
    How can u have 67k DPS??
    It's something wrong in my maths


    It would be easier if you posted your gear.
    I'm at 231x dex right now anyway.

    Here is my stats without ss.

    His damage is so high because his APS is really high for a 2h weapon, but the damage calculation is also being raised by his crit damage.

    ~cries~ anything I try to do means 45-100million gold. It just blows my mind how fast and lucky some of you guys got with drops. I have 200k kills (10k elite) and I've only ever gotten one legendary witch was so low level that I still have it because it's worth nothing -_- Even if I did manage to sell it for low end (maybe 100k) that wouldn't even get one good armor item.

    You sir are extremely unlucky. What in the world are you farming?
    I'm at 10183 Elite Kills. But most of them are Act 3 Kills.

    Still farming act 1 inferno on barb, just got a DH to 60 and i have ~drum roll~ 500k gold to gear somehow LOL
  • #45
    Yeah, act 1 is terrible to farm If you are farming it past the first week for release, you are doing it wrong :(. Stuff that dropped in act 1 sold maybe for the first 2 weeks at best. Not saying it's easy for a barb :(.

    Hello.

    Pls can you post a screen of your actually gear. the link shows your old gear. The way you play your DH is very nice. i hate the glasscannon ^^ . After looking your vids and trying by myself this playstyle, now the fun is back :)

    Only my gear must be better, much better ^^

    thx
  • #47
    Hi. I have switched to the Resist-Hunter after seeing Your work.

    It is amazing and made D3 much more fun. thank you.
  • #48
    Cookie, can u update ur gear screenshoot? It seems that u have better items now
    I think that one is ur old gear and that's why my math went wrong.
    Thank you!!
  • #49
    cookie have u considered caltrops with jagged spike? apparently if u drop it while gloom is up it will get life steal effects for its full duration. could be something for a more tankier version of the spec with numbing traps or even cull the weak
  • #50
    How do you deal with the patch? It is easier now or not? How much damage you lost?
  • #51
    Figured I would update my post even though most people are probably no longer interested since this is no longer new or special. I have seen quite a few tanky videos after I posted mine, mainly the ones with grenades and nat set never ending discipline builders. I wouldn't have posted any videos unless it was something different.

    So here it is. Some abuse of rapid fire mechanics.
  • #52
    Very interesting and different. I haven't looked at rapid fire since I finished normal mode on night 1. So does it not work with LOH at all? And also is it possible to use the prep rune that returns hatred while continuing to channel? Would that be worth even swapping in if provided endless hatred spending through nightstalker?

    Cool ideas sir.

    I don't think the hatred switch would work, because you still need to spop the damage reduction with gloom from time to time. If you do that you won't be able to keep popping prep for hatred back. Maybe with a Nat set, you may be able to it better.

    I have never had any life on hit, so I can't say how it works with rapid fire.

    Q: How long have you played so far?
    A: It says 540 hours, but I leave the game on when I sleep. I would guess about 250-300.


    nice botter, and u claim to have farm act 1? why leave the game active when u sleep, and in game also.

    Maybe u fall asleep and leave game in menu, but leave it playing, sounds a lot strange, and i bet u are a botter :)


    PS. why post tank on boss and not some pack fight? bosses are damn easy to kill, even in glass cannon spec, the hardest part of this game are elites/champions, show some video there instead.

    PPS. btw, botting to make gold is easy to do, playing normally is harder ;)
  • #55
    Yeah because everyone can just afford to gear for 73k unbuffed dps WITH 600 all resists and 54k health... this guide is totally relevant to the majority of the population.

    Unfortunately I never botted. I just have a lot of time on my hands.

    Also the video on the front page isn't the correct one. That was the first first time I tested any sort of tanky build vs Diablo, which was a really long time ago.

    lot of time when u admit that u had 250 hours of game and 500+ in the profile? and u admited also that u leave game on during night? and to count hours it must be IN GAME, not in menu.

    So, u have a lot of time (botting) meanwhile u sleep, u are right ^^

    I only have 320 all resist, but some up to 400-450, 39k hp, 33 crit, 82k without sharpshooter, 145 with but I use, 1120k bow with a socket

    Calltrops - immobilize
    Preparation - heal
    Shadow power - gloom
    Smokescreen - llingering fog (to get out of jail)
    Elemental arrow - Lightning ball
    Evasive fire - 3 hit rune

    Sharpshooter
    Steady Aim
    Archery

    I do have 10% damage on cloak for evasive fire, and mobs just die very fast. This is very defensively, but i can farm act 3
    Besides the odd invulnerable/reflect damage/shielding phasebeasts !


    Just getting above 300 all resist, will already do. You don't need to have the 80 all resist items. Usually you can get the ones with 20-30 alot cheaper. Also a helmet with a socket to get the +Life is very hepfull


    But getting some more HP, the resists, some more armor and the nerf, made act3/act4 alot more enjoyable. Act 1 I am not talking about since i do that in full MF gear, same for act2. I just can't imagine playing without the slow/stun, gloom, shadowpower.

    I often play together with a good geared semi dps/semi tank barb, we do act3 in 2 hours now. Some nasty combos might take abit longer. But this is highly enjoyable, You rarely get oneshotted, you can screw up something

    Whoa there buddy, no need to throw accusations around. You are aware that you can idle away in town and never be disconnected right? I've done it several times. I know, I know, sometimes you are disconnected, but it's not guaranteed that you are however. And yes, I can't be arsed to log in every freaking time I play diablo 3, so I just don't logout. Problem?
