    And better gear is not hard to pay for on the AH to do MP 3 easily. We are not talking about awesome gear but cheap gear that isn't that good willl still get you 50k+ dps. easily.

    You need to focus on ONE character only. Your lack of Paragon levels on one character affects:

    1) Killing power and survivability
    2) MF and Gold find.

    I did not look at your characters at all to determine you spread your time and money thin for upgrades for a single character.

    Some might be bragging but there are those of us that are trying to say one simple thing, focus on one character more and gear that one character. You call it "OP" gear but I call it 600 hours spent playing the game and busting ass to find good gear and use it or sell it for gear better suited for my character. Sure, the op needs to weed out the braggards but there are some of us that will give it to the op straight - 3 mill in AH gear will not net you the same results that hundreds of hard working hours in the game will. It will get you started but you still need to grind and find that focusing on a single character can be rewarding, especially in the higher paragon levels.

    I apologies.

    Bad choice of word. Let's pretend I said "imba" instead of OP. I'm also sure that the gear that ppl have is well deserved ;)
    My point was, don't loose hope, there are plenty of players out there in the same situation as the OP.

    PS. The mentioning of 3 mil was only addressing what the video was about.

    It's all good Niddro, I try not to take the game to seriously. I also do not want the godly op items dropping every time. Most of the posts here answered my question and I did as follows.

    1. Play my monk and level his paragons!
    2. Spent 120kish (MY POOR CASH FUND!!) and got up to 150mf without losing any life and like 1k dps and a tiny bit of resistances.
    (I think this gets me to almost 300mf with neph buff) have to do for now.
    3. Focus on act 3, (find good route) find better gear.
    4 Focus on act 1 mp 1 (can still farm at same rate I was)

    Again thanks to everyone that responded. I don't mind getting harsh answer as long as they are informative. Which they did. No bs but gave me things to look at.

    Understood and I will add, not trying to start a fight. I just wanted to clear up that there are some of us that would like to see everybody excel in the game.

    Truth is there is only one easy way out of grinding a farm route for good gear and that is by using real cash but for those who want to truly give the game a fair shot they have to grind and put in the hours of play. I just want to stress to everybody that at first it may seem daunting but the reward for a few hundred hours of game time is actually pretty nice.

    My uncle has about 40 hours into each character and has them all at a level 60 / 1 Paragon and he too complains that he finds nothing worth keeping or selling. I tell him the same, take one character and grind like hell. It just takes time and a bit of dedication.

    Do you play (US) or (EU)? There are a few people that may be able to help with gear and I am one of them. I have some things collecting dust that may help.

    I play (US) but I know of at least one other fella here that plays (EU) that has a standing offer to help gear people that are struggling.

    I play US, I just play for fun ya know? My game tag is Lealia#1131. However, if ya want to help thats cool. Never turn down a friendly person. I did not make the post though to look for that.

    Bah, I laugh in the face of that siren call that is "efficiency". Say it loud: "I twink and I'm proud".

    Stay strong, OP.

    Oh I know you didn't intend on making a 'gib itemz plox' thread.

    A thread was actually made offering such assistance not long ago here. It's not charity, it's karma. We're not talking about game-breaking godlies either, just some shit to get the ball rolling with a little more momentum, aye.

    Lemme know what Char you're intending to para level as you main and I'll dig through my stash and see what I got.

    Same here brother. I "farm" on MP5 or 6 (depending on mood) and I do so because the efficiency isn't as appealing as the challenge and fun of the game as intended. I goof around on MP 7 from time to time but it is a little slow for me as of yet.

    I always feel like I'd be miserable if I was jetting along as quick as a robot, starting and restarting runs with great speed as to maximize my efficiency while blasting through MP1 Elites in one fell blow.

    I want to die sometimes. It humbles me. Well ...like not in real life, that would suck. I mean the game of course.

    getting ur net legendary drops up has a direct reflection to how fast u clear content. i'd focus on the class u enjoy playing the most, or a barbarian as they move around the fastest . gear out one character and level his paragon up. i wouldnt worry a cranking mp levels up too high if it slows ur kill speed. mp1 will net u more legendary per hour then playing at mp5 but taking a long time to kill stuff. killing almost everything is a good idea too as i get tons of drops from normal mobs, not just elites. as someone stated earlier alkaizer route is the highest density of mobs and champion packs.. fast XP and drops. look it up on youtube. when u get high enough mp u can throw in the key warden to it as well. wouldnt bother with key warder with mp1-2 though.

    The monk you linked has extremely low dps. In one hour of play, I would likely kill 10 times as many monsters as you at a given MP, giving me 10 times the chances of getting a legendary.

    If you want legendaries, gear up a character to 100k+ damage. Go on that character's class forum here and learn the best spec(s) for killing quickly.

    I plan on going with my monk, it is my favorite character. (Closest to a pallyzealer imo which is the best and funniest class ever!). I actually like just killing things. Most times I run around with my barb 2h and bash because its funny to see things fly across screen and find their bodies 4 screens over. However I do also like upgrading my gear... and moving to harder things. MP levels kinda reminds me of darksouls, die die die learn something, die die die learn something, kill boss. If that makes sense.

    If you're playing Monk there's a few things I would say.

    First, you're wasting a passive with combination strike while not having two generators running. I run a combination build that you may want to give a shot. Otherwise, ditch the passive Combination strike.

    Also I see your gear is sorta split as far as choosing you main resistance. Choose the Lightening instead of Fire, as further down the road you're going to be paying more for gear with +Fire res on it.

    If you play Monk I definitely have at least a few pieces that you can use, including a weapon that may get those DPS up into a more acceptable range.

    Also, check out our Monk Forum for all sorts of great advice.

    In the mean time, I'll go ahead and add you so we can hook up. Hopefully I can help a little bit.

    Now I know why I like you. I was heavily into playing my 98 zelaot. Did countless tournaments with him and even MF'd with him for fun.

    Nothing like soloing Hell Cows with my trusty Zealot, Enigma, EbotD and a pair of Dracs. I used to love heared them up until the screen was full of nothing but cows and letting 'er rip.

    another great spot to farm is act2 assassin something, its in desolate sands. when u get ur mp level up find high density areas before hitting the key warden. act1 is festering woods.

    Vault of the Assassin (VoA). I've counted as many as 10 packs there before.

    So true. Heck, on a key run I never finish the vault due to getting my 5 stacks so quick. After that I telly over to town and then to the key warden. One of the fastest key runs IMHO.

    Also buy a cheap Grand Vizier (41-45% MF, should be able to find one for less than 100k) and high MF + int rings & amulet for your Enchantress. Which should boost your MF by about 20-25%.

    Grizwalds Set. The most underappreciated set ever!!! Though the weapon would break on one giant pack of cows lol. My favorite was Shaeffers hammer with mara's amulet(amp damage). Was a killing machine. That was before all the uber runewords though. I played my first to 99. Then had one every season. Could not resist.

    7-12 packs.

    However, they can be fairly annoying (especially Blazing Guardians with their insane fire damage). You don't want to "farm" their area on your own unless you have some decent fire res/allres... well, but it seems you all like to die a lot, so have fun there ;-)
