General Idea - How much Gold is Needed for gear for a MP5-8 run

  • #1
    So, with my job it pains me to say, though I follow d3 like crazy - My play time is massively short. However with the expansion on its way - figured it would be a fun time to jump back in for a little bit and start a new character. I figured Demon Hunter would be my next.

    However - Due to almost not free time - i'm going to buy some gear this time around (It kind of saddens me to do this - but I did my wizard with pretty much no AH [only mp3 tho]- just don't have the time to do that this time around with my DH (maybe about 2 hours of play time a week =/)

    I was a little shocked at the only 1.30 for 50m on the RMAH - So with that in mind - how much (on average - obviously prices change, good deals can be found) does it cost to get gear that can let a DH do mp5-8 with somewhat ease.

    Not sure for DH, but for Monk you can with about 150 to 200mil. It's not optimal, but it works.
    The hype is flowing through my veins...

    Thats still amazingly cheap from back in the day - def DO want optimal - With so few hours to play - I really want to be able to jump into a public game - have a blast- and not be leaching due to low dps


    Id even be willing to buy a full set of gear (possibly) from someone who dosnt play their DH much now - Might make a post in the trade section

    If you are on American server, I can offer you a DH like 310k DPS (with scoundrel at Paragon 50), 500AR, 45k HP with decent armor for 800M, very comfortable in public MP7-8. Should you be interested, send me an email at [email protected] to fix a time.

    This is probably at cost but I enjoy building a new one, and wish you all the best with it.

    I've been off the AH so long now I have no clue, but my battletag is Bleu#1722, check out my DH. I usually play on MP6 with almost no problems, and you defiantly could get a different weapon. Just for a frame of reference =)

    You need 5 bil then you sorted

    No man is sane who does not know how to be insane on proper occasions.

    Here is a guide how to build a set for your DH with ~ 50m gold.

    This would be more than enough for you to do MP5-ish

    You can use the same video for higher budget sets, just apply the same principle with % from your budget for each piece.
  • #9
    Sry, the edit button seems to not work today. If you decide to go for a higher budget, the only thing you should change is the manticore - with 2 sockets, weapon % dmg and dex, the rest is the same.

    do you have a battle tag I can take a look at? 750m was going to be my max end - but I guess I can squeez some more out


    Thanks for the rest of the replies - I was also following the Guide stickied at the top (It has a nice item/stat info) But then I realized I was spending my like 2 hours of play time looking for items instead of playing x.x So think im going to go with a full made set someone is ready to sell
  • #11
    750M or anything will be fine. Red and Green gems included, but not BOA items obviously. But as far as I can remember there are at most two pieces BOA.

    I can't remember my account, DanielLOSH#1427 or maybe DanielLO#1427.

    Send me a email anyway and we'll meet online. Daniello78@yahoo,com

    I am on the fast East and I'll be online in 9 hours, probably for 3-4 hours.

    Best

    Dear Molster,

    I can replace the BOA items with non-BOA items and the DPS may be lowered by just a few k, so that you can start right away.

    Craft some BOA yourself for further improvement.

    It is my honor to server you, respectable "Corrupted Chat Gem".

    D3 is now down for maintenance, and I'll be online in 11 hours.

    A week ago I tried to build the cheapest 4 Nat's + 2 Inna's set possible. Spent like 6-7 mil total and got 130k DPS, tons of EHP and a pile of Discipline. MP5 was a breeze. If I wanted to farm MP6-7, I'd switch the Nat's helm with any decent Andariel's Visage, which would give a lot of DPS at a cost of 20 max Discipline.

    Now, with 750 mil you can build like 300k+ DPS with decent EHP, which will let you farm MP8 rather easily, but I think MP7 will be the most efficent with such DPS.

    P.S. I play on EU server, on US you probably can get even better deals.
    P.P.S. Get some friend to play Monk. Some of their abilities combined with our "Cull the Weak" passive provide huge DPS boost (like +50% total), so you'll be able to farm 1-2 MP's higher than you'd farm solo.

    Gear defensively and reach 100-120 k dps is easy nowadays and u can do it for less then 50 M

    In pub games is much better u surving at all costs so u actually do that 100k dps

    a lot of misunderstanding is this part if u glass cannon u would die a lot to lag spikes and such , so u would never do that 300k dps u spreadshet shows

    Keep with ur speed if u have 2 hours 3 hours to play weekly gear for it not for way more than that


    There is a guy on youtube named shinobi that made a dh that would play nicely on 5-8 range for only 10 million

    Otmize your toon for your needs



    Focus on crit chance and a little of crit dmg if u go with manticore with 2 socks i will have enough dmg if u can survive at all situations


    Gear sugestions

    Manticore
    DML
    Nat ring
    Nat boots any vit dex combination will do it
    Mempo no needed crit
    Inna belt
    Inna pants-(Armor or resists here)


    Play as a support toon

    Here is my monk and he can do MP10 pretty easy.

    http://us.battle.net...6/hero/14417958

    Here is what I find that is needed.

    150k+ damage
    45k-55k life
    5% + Life steal.
    LIfe regen or life on hit helps.

    This in general will allow you to function in MP10

    Molster is talkin about a demon hunter. So why posting monk stats? :>

    btt. I guess on us servers you can pretty easily build an mp7+ capable dh for less then 500mil. Mp9/10 should be doable in groups too(in terms of ehp/survivability) but you will have a hard time soloing(not enough dps to be efficient).
    Words of wisdom: Don't follow the advice of people who won't have to deal with the consequences.

    To be honest it need very little. I have several DH and while Diabro3.com say my P12 DH LuXess should be able to optimally farm at MP2 solo. I am doing MP5 with 4 player party no problem. All of the gears are perhaps junk to others, but the totality of them together still build me a survivable one if not a speedy killing machine. In fact almost all the gear on her are either drops I pick up or self crafted ( material gathered myself ). I can easily upgrade her with some of the legendaries I pick up along the way but I figure I want to play it thorugh to see how well it goes and its proven well enough. in fact the only item I procure from the AH for her is the dye.

    The motto here, just what you are looking for making. It can be billions or it can almost be free.

    I would say if you are just building your new DH, then the best gear to have is getting a couple decent bow / hand crossbow with a socket and get a Ruby ( high level enough ) in there to get you speedy through to lvl 60, then you can examine what you have pickup along the way and start making decision on what to buy. I frequently find that you actually need little to be able to level up. with minimal fuss. Public game is actually a nice place to ask for items too. Ask politely for trade or simply hand down items from higher lvl players. Public game is actually not that unfriendly. I've been given hand me down items myself loads of time and I do the same to others loads of time too.

    You shouldn't need more than a couple million (~5m) theoretically, but since the AH is closing down, the prices are probably ridiculous.
