Advice on next step with 80 mil Gold

  • #1
    Hi all,
    I'm currently sitting on somewhere around 80 million gold with some items on the AH probably around 100 till the end of the week. I need some advice on where to spend that money.
    Here is a link to my DH http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/IcepickD-1823/hero/10626438

    I can currently faceroll ACT2 with DH and 250 MF with NV and paragon (50k DPS, 250AR, 24k life). I have "better" gear in my stash and with it I have around 70k DPS, 320 AR, 29k Life, but I can't faceroll act 3, also with that equipment I'm sacrificing all my MF which I do not want to do.
    So my question is:
    where to look for my upgrades, should I continue to upgrade mu DH?
    Or lvlup a barb and go WW/sprint for the best results?

    What would be the least expensive but will be able to faceroll ACT3 like WW Barbs?

    Helmet: If you pick up something with mf, dex, crit + socket that shouldn't be to expensive and provides a decent dps boost.
    Weapon: is this just something for reflect mobs or your regular work piece? With your fund you should be capable of yielding something with a socket, crit damage and a bunch of dex.
    Those two swaps alone should net you enough damage to clean act 3 just fine.

    ---

    Without old nats 4 piece you won't farm act 3 as fast as a tornado/sprint barb, that's a sad fact... but is that class really suited for you? Will you have fun playing it? That's something only you can tell us.

    Oh my, get a helm.
    btw a 60-65% crit dmg neck could help too, if you dont feel like swapping the weapon and u can find one with MF and dex.

    I have andariels in stash. This is just my ACT2 gear. And weapon is something that I use I don't have any better.

    So what you are saying is that even if I spend like 200 mil on upgrades I would not be able to farm as efficiently as WW barb?

    That is realy sad, since I enjoy playing DH. My barb is now only 32nd lvl, but from what I can see it maybe is the best option for farming atm. If I could be as good as barb with 150 mil upgrades for my DH i would stick to it but, if there is no chanse of something like that, I think I will roll my self a barb, just for the farming purposes.

    How are other classes doing compared to WW's speed farming?

    You can farm as efficiently as a tornado/sprint barb with old nats 4 piece but not while maintaining your desired mf niveau. On a sidenote: a decked out barb with high mf and decent killspeed should cost you more even excluding kickass weapons...

    :lol: we have almost the exact same DH...

    You have a bit more MF and Dex, I have slightly more crit chance and discipline (from the 2-handed xbows).

    I'm at the same situation as you are, Act 2 is kinda easy, Act 3 is almost impossible (gotta wear the tryhard pants and even then it's not guaranteed). Definitely wanted to farm Act 3 with my MF DH as well :D

    I'm aware that with a 2-handed and a decent quiver my DPS could improve a lot (I had one before, nearly a 20k increase in dps), but I'm having a blast with the quicker style of 2 one handed xbows, and the extra discipline paired with NightStalker and increased crit chance is awesome for keeping Gloom for almost a whole minute.

    Tried searching for individual upgrades, coulnd't find anything for less than 1-2 mil :(

    i have another set of gear, almost everything here that has a MF I have without MF. With alternate set I have 25k more dmg and more resistance /armor/life. I can farm ACT3 almost everything. But not with as fast as I can ACT2, and with almost no MF. That is my problem here. I wanted to see if I can raise my farm speed to the point of being able to run through all the trash mobs like WW barbs.

    Sounds like youre not playing a game! Sounds more like youre going to work....

    why do you want to farm items as fast as a WW barb, when you are ok with your DH? I donĀ“t get it...
    So youre slower then.... and? who cares?
