Me and a friend done ours for each other, same sort of thing as using a merc but a lot faster.
The person earning the achievement only has to enter the fight naked and stay naked all the way through. AND get the killing blow.
What we done was enter the fight, naked person dies, at the first possible opportunity res them. Don't res till the boss is VERY low hp. You can't use thorns gear or any pets as you have to control the damage perfectly, using lower dps weapons and no weapon at all to get it within 50 - 100hp of dying, then the naked person accepts the res and finishes it off. They can die as many times as needed.
SS below just for proof I've done it.

I was curious about the inherent worth of gold to RM and vice versa. So I done what I like the most and made a spreadsheet.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Based it on external gold sites for now, but will be changed to use RMAH gold prices in the future.
With my calculations being pretty accurate I'd say, £200 which seems to be the highest price to sell for is around 48.27 million gold.
I went on the gold AH and took the highest price 2h I could find from the first page, 250 million gold, that's £1035.28
I kinda like using it to figure out the value of stuff on the gold AH, and considering how much I can farm in pure gold an hour, it's really not worth farming gold anymore. I might as well roll a demon hunter and faceroll act 4 for rares.

PS. It's also great for working out REAL prices to sell things for, and they really are a lot cheaper than you'd think. Even at a fairly reasonable price of 10m gold, that's only £41.43 to sell for.

Quickly made this if anyone wants a quick reference.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Thought it'd be easier just to link it, allow ya to play with it after downloading.

I'm not sure what you guys are thinking about doing, but Blizzard stated that the prices are only being changed for up to flawless squares. I just looked the now, to craft a flawless square ruby it'd cost 2 square rubies, 2 tomes of secrets and 100g, that's still more than it costs just to buy the flawless square ruby off the AH.
Now that I think about it, yeah. I can see where crafting your own gems will benefit you immensely.
In the case of crafting your own gems, it looks like it'll always be worth crafting your own gems rather than buying them from the AH. Assuming the people selling the gems in the AH aren't stupid. But as you can see by the rubies that's not always true.

Keep in mind 1.0.3 will adjust the JW prices for lower gems, this could be a factor... *shrug*
Unfortunately all that's may do is bring the prices of Flawless squares further down.
Only benefit I can think of would be being able to use anything from chipped upwards to finally craft the highest gems.

That's the reason i didn't level my jeweler at all cause buying gems is actually cheaper then combining them myself ^^
I definitely understand why you done that, but I just don't get what possesses people to make losses like this on gems. Apart from the fact that maybe they just can't do simple maths.

Done this quickly too, just for the lulz.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Tome of Secrets = 281
Flawless Square Amethyst = 715
Star Amethyst = 604000
To craft = 534479
To craft + 15% AH fee = 628798
Loss per gem = 24798
Flawless Square Emerald = 2658
Star Emerald = 670989
To craft = 586940
To craft + 15% AH fee = 690517
Loss per gem = 19528
Flawless Square Topaz = 692
Star Topaz = 599999
To craft = 533858
To craft + 15% AH fee = 628068
Loss per gem = 28069
Flawless Square Ruby = 638
Star Ruby = 440000
To craft = 532400
To craft + 15% AH fee = 626352
Loss per gem = 186352
Edit: Tiny little percentage based error, now the prices are even worse. xD

So, today I was looking through gem prices on softcore and was amazed at how badly the price had dropped on flawless squares since Blizzards dumb idea to freeze commodity auctions for a week.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Abysmal is an understatement, I'm going to use rubies from now on. So Flawless Squares were between 6 - 8k before the commodity freeze. It was the most profitable out of all the gems and when they dropped it was like winning the lottery for me. Now, they're sub 600g.
Not even worth selling on the AH in my opinion. So I figured, I'll craft star rubies and make some money out of them. Wow, was I wrong.
This is a completely serious question, are the people playing this game completely unable to count?
Star gems CAN NOT be dropped, they MUST be crafted. To craft a star gem from 27 flawless square gems, is 500k.
This is not including the value of flawless square rubies or tome of secrets. Which are 600~ and 300~ each respectively.
So WHY are people selling them for 450k?! Oh, you just lost 50k? NO! YOU JUST LOST 138k!!!
500k to craft, sell it for 500k? NOPE, you have to sell it for 588,235 gold to break even. In case you're 12 and don't know what this means, it means have the same amount of money that you had when you started.
Now, let's go back and assume that you're buying the gems from the auction house, the tomes aswell.
It costs 532,400 gold to craft 1 star ruby out of 27 flawless square rubies.
Take the 15% cut from the AH into account, 626,352 gold to break even. Why the hell would you want to break even? You're in this to make money. Let's make it pretty, 650k to sell. After the cut you've just made 552,500 gold. You make a grand total of 20,100 gold per gem crafted, considering you need at least 533k to start, that's a terrible markup.
You'd need to sell 27 gems to be able to make one extra gem per process. And at 650k a pop, I assume you won't be selling many.
I ranted on a bit there, originally this was just about the current price and how it completely baffles me that anyone would sell for that amount.
TLDR; So just answer me this, why are star rubies selling for 200k below what they should be selling for? Leave your constructive and thought out posts below, or say "LOL FAG L2P AH". I don't mind either way.
Edit: Percentage based error.

Damage displayed is Avg of two weapons equipped plus 15% attack speed bonus.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
So let's say you have no gear at all and no modifiers, 170 dps weapon = 170 damage (ish)
Add on an 80 dps weapon at 80 damage, take (170+80)/2 = 125 and use the 15% attack speed modifier.
125*1.15 = 143.75, so you just lost 26.25 damage.
On the upside, you now swing 15% faster.
