The 1.0.5 Budget Hunter - 1.6mil easy mode

  • #1
    Hey guys. Upon popular demand, I thought I would do a budget guide for the new 1.0.5 patch. I spend a total of 1.62 million gold on gear in the auction house and briefly explain my choices and what not. I also include a nice little montage at the end, which shows the Budget Hunter in action. Let me know what you guys think! Cheers! (Feedback is always amazing)

    Just started watching this and already have problems. The Xbow he's looking at, for him to find it like that is extremely rare. Xbows like that usually go for well over 1m on the AH, not the 50k he purchased it for.

    Notice how many of the things he's searching for have precisely 1 thing with those stats in his price range. That is really telling. This isn't gear you are going to get your hands on easily.

    Question OP, are you on EU? That would explain some things, because seriously - Doing a search for anything he posts gives me completely different results. Like his Ammy page starts at 100k, mine? http://imgur.com/xsaqo

    That crossbow is not a 2 million crossbow. There are many many Xbows just like it for less than 250. You can even get a low end Manticore with similar stats if you want.

    Try buying during the week instead of on the weekend. You'll always pay more on the weekend.

    Also, this is an edited search. The screens that have one item look that way because he's changed the parameters based on what he's found until there is only one item. You can see this happen on the Crossbow at 1:05, he looks at the one he's going to buy, puts 250 vitality in the filter to see if there's anything else like it, and it ends up being alone.

    I agree, xbows are super cheap these days with the influx of decent manticores on the market. Anything under 1200dps is not going to cost an arm and a leg

    Well, you seem to have gotten quite lucky on some of the items here. I tried similar searches, and quickly found that there was no way I could have bought similar item for 1.6 mill. But the method is still good!

    seems like most of the items are rarities that cannot be used as the norm...

    Ogeishere, in your build video I see you using Windforce and Manticore and you say you like Windforce more. But doesn't swapping from a 1k DPS Manticore to a high DPS Windforce drop your DPS by a lot? I am tempted to try Windforce, but even a really good one with a socket makes me lose 296 Dex and ~246% crit dmg:

    96% crit damage from the weapon itself (every Manticore has crit dmg as a standard stat, can go up to 100%)
    100% crit damage from the lost socket
    50% crit damage from swapping from xbow to bow (archery passive).
