    Because if you want char advidce, the first thing missing is a armory link...

    Aaaah now I can see your char :)

    I am no DH expert, but a few things that come to mind are :

    - You can get a dead mans legacy offhand and a manticore crossbow for very very cheap,
    - Try getting chest, pants, shoulders, boots and belt with defensive stats mainly ( 100+ vit, 65+ all res, as much dex and sockets as possible ) so that you can focus on
    - offensive stats for the rest of your gear. Specialy gloves, rings, amulet should have at least dex/critical chance/critical hit damage. Bracers should have critical hit chance. 2-part nathalias set for 7% more crit chance is also nice to have.

    - overall your items look like you want to have offensive AND defensive stats on all of them, that makes them very expensive. It's cheaper to focus on defense on some slots and then on damage on the other slots.

    ( boots, pants, belt, chest, shoulders, helm = defensive, rest = offensive )

    - build wise i would look to somehow implement shadow poer - blood moon. It's great life leech and you will need it for higher MPs.

    Well..

    Either farm the AH, which would be the version with the least time investment.

    Or if you want to farm ingame, you should do act 3 runs on low MPs. Keep the MP so low that you dont have to slow down ever. Kill speed > anything for farming, be it XP or items.

    Yea i figured it out later on, that he meant gloom but man its really decent ok
    i got myself some upgrades and have been farming MP3-4 keywardens those damn keys wont drop T_T

    also its still hard to make gold or i am doing something wrong.
  • #9
    Well, my DH with paragon 73 farms about 5-600k gold per hour.
    Don't pick up anything but gold and yellows if you want to farm gold better.
    Also, the keys have a low drop chance in mp3-4.
    I farm them in mp7-8 and it usually takes me 2-3 tries to get 1 key
  • #10
    ok that is pretty nice

    Currently with my dps 95kish, i farm MP3-4, but its so slow, i heard from some ppl not to pick up yellows that are item lvl 61-62 and that I only need to pick up the ilvl63 etc etc

    any advice or something ?

    As long as you have under 100k dps, stay at mp 0-1 for farming, when the dps gets better, you slowly start moving up in mp. For key farming, you probably did the right thing at mp3-4, for now. For every mp level, theres a 10% chance of a key dropping, IF you got 5 stacks of nephalem.

    As soon as you play mp1 or higher, all rares you find can actually roll 63 stats, only backside to that is that lower ilvls, have lower base stats, so its harder to hit 1k dps on a 60 axe than on a 63 axe.
    How much you should pick up, is up to you, but identifying a backpack full of rares just takes time, and takes you away from killing(getting xp and chance of legendaries). It's all about how you weigh the variables against each other. But when next patch goes live, an identify all button should be avalible, so that will speed things a bit up :)

    Most people use gloom in their shadow power, but some spec changes that a bit, and it also depends on your dps. Let me give an example:
    I play strafe build from time to time, and i got 250k dps unbuffed, its possible to snapshot the life leech from shadowpower, if you use it before strafe, and it will last as long as you hold down strafe afterwards. However, the dmg reduce from gloom will not snapshot when strafing, so 25% life leech is better at keeping me alive than gloom is. This is the only example i got tho, havent encountered other builds that favors blood moon > gloom.

    Hope this answers a few questions. Otherwise feel free to pm me or ask here :)
    Regards DreamWalker

    I have 18 yards pick up radius on my DH, and it helps me a lot speed wise.
    The yellows that I'm picking up are rings, amulets, gloves and 1h weapons. Rest I leave it on the floor.
