    posted a message on Farming gold, and legendaries?
    Quote from Quaker_Gamer

    Doo, there are so many good sites and videos out there from amazing streamers to show you some tips to farming, if it's efficient routes, or just solid farm guides.

    I'm curious to what others may say to your post, but IMO, I started out with a DH myself, and was really having a hard time farming. I finally got my barb up to inferno and I have to say the game is so much more fun for me. I'm not running from battles anymore, I run into the fight. My legendary item find has really increased just by the shear amount of monsters that I'm killing.

    I know it's not what you want to hear, but I'm telling you it's a lot different. Good luck!

    Could you point me in the direction of some of these videos/web sites. Everything I have found hasn't been too helpful.

    posted a message on D3 and a Vasectomy ..
    Quote from CheehC

    Quote from Sabvre

    May i ask what you do for a living?

    I didn't even think for a second about the cost of my vasectomy... just that i wouldn't have to endure another brain dead (pregnant) wife moment... or deal with another terrible two year beyond my two kids lol...

    Mine was like $250 AFTER insurance (1500 prior), but then again at the time I had a shitty HSA plan and just threw money into a pile to be spent on healthcare.

    Wife is currently on the IUD -so there has been no rush to get the vasectomy. I have 2 boys under 3 and am happy and just wanted the more permanent solution as we do not want anymore.
    Here it is like $300 after my Insurance ($1000 before).

    Yeah I could easily have paid for it normally but as there was no rush in doing it and since I was making some chump change every few days on D3 I thought I would just use that money..

    I am a Demand Response Analyst.. basically I sign up big industrial sites, or places with backup generation or network companies so that during a times of peak demand (eg a really cold day and everyone turns on their heaters) I call on these sites to reduce their consumption or turn on their generators to reduce the peak. We pay these people to basically reduce their electricity consumption as at it saves us money (my company owns/operate the transmission grid/high voltage lines in New Zealand) to pay them instead of having to invest in buying/building new lines to meet demand growth. On a good salary for being 25.. 83k NZ.. not sure what that is in US.. 70k US?

    Are you making most of your profit flipping items or finding them? I haven't had much luck regardless of what ever approach I try.
    Flipping.. but look to flip items from GAH to RMAH. Have never bought RMAH to try sell on RMAH..
    My target market i guess are the casual players who have maybe just bought the game or players who a leveling up new characters and want them geared to do MP10 the whole way through.
    I do not sell lvl60+ items as the item market is saturated and everyone is trying to flip there
    I focus on level 50 items and below... and flip the great items from GAH to RMAH

    Interesting. I never thought to look at the lower end market. Thanks for the response :)

    posted a message on End of the world
    I've already survived Y2K and the rapture...lets go ahead and add Mayan Apocalypse to that list.

    I believe there will always be dooms-dayers that find a reason for the end of the world. I'll bet that when the 21st passes by there will be another date picked for the new end of the world.

    posted a message on How would you rank each of the set bonuses?
    I think the witch doctor set bonus is huge for mana regen (for WD of course). Right now i'm running with the 4pc which gives +20 mana/sec and then i have +10 mana/sec each on weapon, helm and offhand. With all of this, i'm running 97 mana/sec without spiritual attunement or vision quest on a bears build and i barely run out of mana. Top that off with gruesome feast and 15 mana per kill.

    But getting back to point, once I got the 4pc bonus from Zunimassa's, mana was never a worry again. This is pretty huge seeing as it seems to be a bit complaint for bear builds.

    posted a message on WD Stat Priority + Upgrade Advice
    here is my profile link:
    us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Mortisnox-1541/hero/3306589 (no linking yet for my paltry posting record)

    With my old gear (which is shown at the moment) mp5 was a healthy challenge but I didn't feel like it was too slow. The gear should update sometime soon. I just bought a vile ward and new bracers. As I was saying earlier though, mp5 is comfortable for me, not a rolfstomp but still fun. (the new gear did make mp5 easier too)

    posted a message on What Monster Power do YOU play on?
    I've been doing key runs on mp5 and did the ubers on mp3 last night. I might try ubers on mp4 next time I go for portals but I only run ubers when I have three infernal machines to garentee I get to do each one.

    posted a message on Can anybody explain gem prices?
    Quote from Cryomatic

    the duping is done by blizzard restoration into scheme where someone is hacking himself with some other account

    I doubt blizzard delete the ''hacked'' gem and they restore and restore again and add more into the game without any cost.
    This is how you can duplicate on D3 i believe.

    if someone from blizzard can deny this theory....or confirm that when an item is restored the source is deleted
    that would be really really nice

    else there is no logic explanation to gem price

    ive heard also that botter were gold capped so they stacked gems as currency

    in both way ......this shouldnt be happening
    Quote from LordPoekel

    Quote from Xoth

    Somehow I doubt that everybody who'd want high gems (and there is no reason not to) already has them.
    ...Sadly we do not know how much gems have been produced, we do not know if their actually is something like a playtime gap between hardcore players and more casual players (e. g. 1% 6 hours+ a day, 0.1% 4 to 6 hours a day, 98.5% less than 4 hours a day), we do not know how many players put how much money into a "stocks speculation game" and so on. Current prices could be the result of overproduction and speculation combined or they could be the result of gems being duped (though I would not expect the server price differences for economical reasons if mass duping would be the reason).

    Just wanted to say thanks. This makes sense since the same thing happened to me in World of Warcraft (for the record I was playing diablo 2 long before WoW) All blizz does is restore the items that were lost. I doubt that the lost items are tracked and then deleted.

    This is a type of answer I was looking for, not a "AH is proof...done". Also, I don't want to know how they are duped, just proof that this is the reason for the price gap. Duping is just wrong and why I won't even give a duper the satisfaction of a view on youtube.

    Quote from Frolk

    Its caused by duping, radiant stars on Asian servers r going for 500k...
    Its been a problem for some time, seems blizzard dosnt really give a damn and will "wait and fix it later" >_>

    Please excuse my ignorance, but is there a source that proves it is duping? I see everyone saying that it is duping but the only proof that is offered is the prices on the AH. I just don't find prices found on the AH to be "proof"

    posted a message on Can anybody explain gem prices?
    I can't offer a concrete explaination but I can at least give my two sense. I know that one popular theory is that some people who currently have gems are quiting the game and therefore don't care what they sell for, they are just trying to liquidate their equipment (including gems) to get a little take home cash.

    Another theory is that there is a number of gems on the market but trading is still going on. People are trying the play the gold AH and the RMAH. When the minimum buyout for gold was $.25 x 100k gold, people would by gems off of one market and sell on the other market to turn a profit.

    And as an aside, at what time did you see topazes for 4mil? I was on last night and they were going for 10 mil.

    posted a message on How good do i need to be try an Uber boss?
    I'm in the same boat. I'm currently sitting on a couple of infernal machines but I'm trying to figure out what monster power to try the ubers on. I can't remember the source but I read that the Ubers were about the same difficulty as Diablo. I tried mp5 diablo and lets just say I won't be doing mp5 ubers solo any time soon.

    FYI...I haven't used my machines yet because I'm just waiting for some friends to all be on at the same time so we can rez should we need it as opposed to solo without rezzes.

    posted a message on WD Thorns/Tank Build
    I have actually been using a build similar to Runc. I found this (http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5271500086) on the blizz forums and I have found it very useful. My dogs still get one shotted on the Skeleton King but for the most part it is working surprisingly well. I am able to handle most champion packs and I'm also farming act 1 for the most part. I haven't tried act 2 yet though. I suggest giving it a read if you really want to make pets work.

    If you do go this route, don't get too obsessed about dps. I currently started to stray from the guide in favor of more dps and my dogs are dying a little bit more.

    This is the build I am currently using. I was using Big Bad Voodoo w/ ghost trance, but I find the army to be a little more fun.

    Hope this helps!

    posted a message on What should I do with all my gems?
    I just wanted to get a few opinions. From what I have read, it isn't cost effective to craft up gems and then sell them. Because of this, I have a bunch of gems sitting in my stash and i'm not sure what to do with them. They don't vendor for much either and haven't sold them yet because of that.

    Also, it seems like it is near impossible to sell gold on the RMAH.

    I'm curious what you guys are doing with all your gems. My thought is to use gold to make gems anyways and sell the gems. It seems that gems are at least selling.

    Anyone have any better ideas?
