    Good vid. You hit the nail on the head with the comment about them being useless if dead. That said, I never focus on damage for my followers, i just try and HP them out to near or over the 100k HP mark. I use the same Weps on my Enchantress as in the vid, but focusing on +Vit. as much as possible. As far as the rest goes, I use a lesser rolled Hellfire Ring for the +XP and Fireball Proc and two other +Vit Legendaries that have procs and she very rarely dies.

    Nice vid, but I would consider The Grand Vizier in the top 3 for Enchantress as well. A minimum of +41% MF and GF are very good to ignore, it's my weapon of choice while I am still not at the MF cap.

    Yeah I should of added in more about the value of a Hellfire Ring and mentioned Leoric's Signet.

    I had that weapon as my #4. Not adding it due to the Templar being able to get more MF.

    What weapon would you take off my Enchantress list, to add The Grand Vizier?

    It looks like you're using nearest neighbor resizing or something which makes the text very difficult to read even at 720p.

    If you know about video recording, editing, rendering, ect. I would love to ask you a few things to help clear that up, if you dont mind. I can share with you programs being used, recording settings, rendering settings, and what ever else you needed to know.

    Thanks

    Yeah I had the Buriz for the Scoundrel at #1, Sunkeeper for the Templar at #1, and the Maximus at #1 for the Enchantress. Honestly useing the Azurewrath on the Enchantress never crossed my mind. Im going to have to try that one out for my self, sounds fun :)

    Haven't looked yet, so I haven't see the problem, but I would suggest letting us know what tools you work with to help with that problem. I only recently solved a problem that was making my videos fuzzy and blurry due to not knowing how to fully utilize my software (sony vegas movie maker) so I know the frustration of not having it look the way you want it to. Anyone that's got the same tools might be able to jump in and make suggestions, so by all means let us know.

    Might be good to give the whole picture so: what do you use to record video, audio (if sperate from video), and what editing software you have.

    I've been using a Hellrack with Chance to Freeze on it for my Scoundral. I love it. The chance to root procs a lot. I tried a Buriza and a Windforce but with the Hellrack I get way more CC from him.

    Ok well I kind of fixed the issue. For some reason when I interlace the video It turns out much much better. Do you know what the cause of this could be?

    Or if you need all the info I can post that.

    Thanks

    Edit: I should at least say I'm recording with Fraps and working In Adobie Premiere Pro

    I may have to go give that a shot and see how it turns out. I have tried the hellrack before without much luck.

    Thanks Mr.Zero(pS) (MVP Mod 2013)

    Everyone feel free to chime in and let me know, if you have any thoughts or ideas for future videos you would like to see. I know Diablo is coming up on a year old, and I don't want to only beat dead horses :)

    May have something to do with YouTube's encoding. Usually you want to be in Progressive Scan and I've seen a lot of sources suggest to disable resampling for YouTube.

    Here's a link to YouTube's own video encoding guide. It helped me out a bit maybe it can for you too.

    The second video looked much better so you may not need it, but I feel it's always worth a look

    Good discussion here, wish I could chime in more on it, but I tend to get bad luck on legendaries :)

    EDIT: I can't help much with Adobe I'm afraid. My personal issues were with Sony Vegas Movie Maker. I was uploading to bad resolutions (1440x1080) because that's the highest Vegas MM would allow for WMV. Going higher meant encoding in MPEG and it made the videos super dark. I had to dig around to find out how to do color correction and it turned out vegas had a very simple correction option for it. Man I felt silly after that.

    Im just going to keep encoding the way I have been, I guess. If it ain't broke dont fix it right. haha

    Thanks for the link. It's nice to know what YouTube wants :)

    I don't know if you mentioned it but I have the Puzzle ring on my follower, the goblin usually spawns 3-4 times per run and have found a variety of ilvl items.. (even ilvl 63), plus tomes, gems, and Demonic essence.. I know its not ideal for a follower but the goblins make up for the loss in other stats!!
    What are you trying to tell me... that I can absorb damage with Serenity?
    NO, I'm trying to tell you that when you are ready... You won't have to.

    Yeah, the puzzle ring made it in the video. I have not used it much, the last time was when they first came out. I'm sure I'll get around to trying it out again.

    When you get 3-4 per run. what kind of runs are you doing and about how long does it take? Such as full act clears or speed runs(e.g. Alkaizer run). Just curious as to how often they are spawning.

    I have it on the enchantress with maximus protecting her..so it would probably work better on templar (cuz he's on the frontline). My run consists of keep3, then tower of the damned and keep going down til i kill cydae then fat boy (azzy), top it off keep2 usally on mp5/6, takes me like 30min.. better spawns i assume would be from the templar, my enchantress has a knack for avoiding damage, legendaries do spawn, rarely (had 3 so far)..it's a fun ring ex. while battling an elite, a goblin pops up and throws everything through a loop..shakes things up a bit
