He definitely has some good points. I'm running the spirit bears build as well with minor tweaks to fit my playstyle better. Really works great on mp4. Haven't been able to progress any higher though without dying a bunch of times. Happy farming!Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Here is my WD if you want to compare, but mine is no where near a 35 million budget so you should be able to get PLENTY better gear than me. My gear probably costed around 5 million if you wanted to put it in perspective. (battle.net is down so I will put link later).Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
Basically, on every piece of gear you own, you will want +INT, +VIT, +AR. That is basically it. High amounts of it does good too. Depending on your build, if you are using gruesome feast, you will want a Thing of the Deep mojo, which adds 20 pickup radius. You will also want something like 2000 LOH or get lifesteal if you have good DPS.
Visage of Giyua is good too if you not able to get zunimassa set. I would get zunimassa's armor and hat. Maybe a ring. Get a good int crit chance/dmg hellfire ring. You will also want to get something like 25% crit chance at least and 200% crit damage.
I am able to solo everywhere mp4 with my gear/build, and its not very good either.

I feel like if they didn't scrap some of the ideas they had in the beta they would have a much more enjoyable game. Like tome of town portals, identities. And the Nephaleam Cube. Hell, they even had all gems in the mix.. Instead they just downsized to no cube, and only 4 gem types.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I feel that some of this stuff will make an appearence in the expansion (the gems, and the cube HOPEFULLY). I am overall extremely happy with the new direction since 1.04. Hell, ubers just takes the cake for me. I can't wait to get my first uber treasure.. Whatever that may be .

What do you guys think this is worth? It's the first legendary I have found post 1.04. Found in a3 with 100+% MF.Posted in: US Servers Trading
The cheapest one on the US AH at the moment is 85k. The key points here is that mine has 2.8 life leech, and +387 LOH.

I leveled up my WD when 1.0.4 came, and started looking for gear pieces in the EU gold auction house as I was leveling. I had only a few hundred thousand gold at the time, and wasn't making any since I was leveling a low level.
I started to look for pieces with intelligence 50+, vitality 50+, all resistance 50+, and life regeneration 200+. I was able to find these kinds of pieces to each slot with less than 100K per slot. I ended up with around 2500 life regeneration, 750-850 resistances, 45000 health, and around 15000 or so DPS. I was using a 1100 DPS 1H that I had found, with a decent mojo.
I cleared the entire game with no deaths to elites with those stats. My dogs died only to certain situations, and very rarely. My gargantuan almost never died.
Later I started to upgrade my DPS a bit, sacrificing only a bit of the resistances, and managed to climb to 29K unbuffed. Since then I sold the legendary 1H I was using and had to downgrade a bit. I'm at 25K unbuffed now, with otherwise similar stats (although I have about 4500 thorns), 36K I think with a five stack buff on, and I'm farming act three relatively fast, with no deaths.
My enchantress does have something like 9200 DPS now though, so she's a big help. She had around 8000 DPS when I cleared the game.
As far as being squishy, I can take a couple hits from elites with no worries; my resistances and regen keep me alive, and I can tank most normal monsters.
I've switched to a thematic build since, using Searing Locusts, Blazing Spiders and Burning Dogs (I have 0% extra fire damage), and it seems to work extremely well. Things go down fast, the Locusts keep jumping from monster to monster crazy long, and it's a fun build to play. Hoping to get my hands on an +intelligence 900DPS+ socketed Sankis at some point, 20-25% would be nice.
Anyways, hope any of this anecdotal evidence helps you in any way.
Wow man nice post! Was interesting and fun to read.
Okay so I just wanted to update this post. Now, my WD is able to farm act 3 rather efficiently. I changed my build up a little bit to something that fits my playstyle better. I created the build by just selecting what I thought worked together. This is the build I used to do most all of act 3.
My WD has 600+ all resists, 20% block rate, 34k HP, and 23.6k DPS unbuffed. My DPS can get to about 32k DPS with 5 stack soul harvest. My character uses a shield now too, not a very good one though, I bought it for 50k off the AH. Tell me what you think of the improvements.
Also, what is a good route to farm act 3 with a WD? Right now I am just starting the game at the "Kill Azomdan" quest, then re-running through the waypoints. Then finally, ending with killing azmodan.

I can't see them shutting down the servers soon. Especially since every time I ever went back and played it seems during the new ladder season tons of people are playing. I'd say there is a couple more ladder seasons at least before they shut down the servers (if they do). But Diablo 2 is getting older and older.Posted in: Diablo II
I am thinking about starting up a lightning sorc or something if I get bored of D3 anytime soon.

1) No, that is not wrong. I do it on my WD simply because I'm in need of money and picking up blues actually yields a decent enough money for me to pick it up. I could see myself leaving them on the groudn once I got enough gold and am basically just farming rares looking for that amazing one.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
2) After you kill siegebreaker, just go and do the rest of the act. Hell, re-run the whole act, it would probably yield the best exp/money than anything else. Also, watch this video, and follow his a3 route.
His guides has good information. If you havent watched his WD yet I suggest you do so.
3) I'd just say kill everything that you can. White monsters can actually add up. I hear that most people find their legendaries from white monsters so I just like to kill everything on screen. Plus, it makes me feel badass.

Sweet man. I think my highest massacre is like 100 or so. I will screenshot next time I have a big one and post it here! Is there any way to check your records in the game? (like the profile menu??) The most things I've broken was 49 in Cemetary of the Forsaken in a1.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I use this guide, he made a nice and easy to follow guide on youtube, which explains quite a bit including some ways to play your WD. Like stutter-stepping, etc. The build is really nice too, I use it and it makes a1 farming easy, and I have cheap gear. He also has a guide on inferno farming routes for each act. I'd say a1 is better than a2 but a3 is far best out of them all, just for conveinence. In a1, I am able to make roughly 250k gold an hour and 30-40 unidentified ilvl 60+ rares. (more ilvl 61 than anything).Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura

Thanks man.Posted in: Witch Doctor: The Mbwiru Eikura
I also upgraded my pants. I will get a picture up tomorrow so you can see the differences.
I'm now sitting at 390+ all resists. I realized I am probably good with resists, so I am focusing on int and vit primarily. I am working on getting 12% movement speed, some crit chance, and crit damage (mainly on my new weapon).
My next piece I upgrade is probably going to be my Jewelry. Since I don't need resists on them, I am going for one ring with int + vit, then crit damage. The other ring int + vit and maybe LOH if I can find one. Ammy I am gonna lower the int on, because I can't find a decent amulet with 190+ int and 83 vit for cheap, maybe I can AH mine also. I am going for mostly vitality, LOH, and crit hit chance.
First things first, I need for farm more gold, because I have 100k left after that 1m I just had.
I am already ripping through a1 better & faster than ever before. With 5 stacks soul harvers I get up to 41k DPS. I have 31k DPS unbuffed, which is a step up from my 30k DPS 5 stack soul harvest and 23k DPS unbuffed.
I feel after I upgrade those rings, and a few more pieces of armor (bracers, chest piece, belt) I will be able to melt through a3 and probably beat a4. What do you guys think?
