Is the hotfix deployed on the Europe platform? The info is nowhere to be seen on French forum, no news on the launcher (appart a maintenance in 2 hours) ...Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I made perfect rolled shoulders first try (exalted 4 affix), I am still using. Those would be 1M worth.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I tried 10 or 15 helms (exalted grand 6 affix) and they all are crap, salvaged or sold back to npc already.
(perhaps sold one or two for 50k but that's all)
I tried too 8 exalted grand swords (paid 2.8M for the plan + 8x 120k golds) ... for crap only. The best I got was 550dps with stupid bonuses. Had one with pure bonuses (LoH + speed + dext + vita + crit chance + socket) ... but <400 dps, it's just useless for a lv60 weapon (now anything <800 dps won't sell more than like 10k).
Had been more lucky with gloves (exalted 4 affix): for ~10 tries I got good gloves for myself and sold several for 50 or 250k.
So it depends. You've got to be lucky. I think you can't have an economic plan with crafting, it can't be profitable if you have to pay for the blueprint + expect specific affixes. Just craft what you can, when you have the money, but don't expect anything: it's like paying for a loot. You could still make money from it, but that's pure luck.
So. I'm happy with my shoulders. And I'm crafting only because it's part of the game and I like doing everything proposed by the game, but I don't expect (anymore) to do make any money from that .

+1 : a complete Act 1 run (if you can clean it without dying), I usually get 350k direct gold + some stuff that can be sold & a bunch of fresh potions & a bunch of lv60 crap to salvage. Last time I got 1 million total with sales. Takes 4 hours solo.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Or go a easier zone with many many mobs, where you can oneshoot everything: set a secondary multi-target skill, and just wipe the entire zone with mouse button 2 always pressed (no need to click, just leave it pressed and go through all mobs & gold on the floor). For example go Act III / Hell, the quest with Catapults to destroy. Run & quickly kill everything in the zone, clean the Ice Cave and repeat. Sell all loots to npc. You get at least 50k in 10~15 minutes. That's 200 to 250k in one hour, but you'll have to like farming (1 million too in 4 hours), and you won't have any usable loot (nor any lv60 salvage).

ok, agreed, it's much better in group. Adopted!Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

We can discuss that. But I don't really agree. I played with Conviction some time, but for me it's not adding more dps than the ally. Appart for huge groups of mobs, but those usually don't hurt that much so I can manage it (I'm already killing those by grapes of 6). For a single target the ally deals 40% of my own damage (Conviction it's 12%, it's better than my ally only if I'm hitting 4+ targets at the same time, but again it's the big solo targets I need to kill faster). So the ally is doing more dmg single target. And it can block / off-tank one of the elite of the pack: with three elites pack having fire chains for example the barbarian goes to 1, I look which one my ally is going to, and I'm pulling the third one farther, no more fire chains ... And for some difficult ones I can just run around, letting the ally kill everything. Quite long, but I can't die this way, hehe. But ok, I won't die stupid, I'll try again Fist of Thunder. ;o)Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
So, I'm not convinced about Mantra of Conviction, for elite packs.
And about the sweeping wind I need to be on the mob butt all the time, what I can't always do: when I'm running around, the wind won't do any damage (the ally is still hitting). Using deadly reach + way of the hundred fists, I'm hitting 165% of weapon damage (140% + 18%) point blank, while still having a distance option (when there's poison everywhere).
Well I'm ok with my dps. I'll try a more defensive config, one that help my barbarian tanking too (for act III): I'll try changing Combination Strike --> Resolve, and Mystic Ally --> Mantra of Evasion / Hard Target. Because it's hard for my barbarian buddy at times.
I'll try again Fist of Thunder, but boosted with Deadly Reach. XD

Yep, I have zero L2P, nada. I'm full dps, with a tank barbarian. I'll find some L2P stuff you're right. ;o)Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

With two 880dps fists (with 160+ dext & 5% speed, around 1600 dext total), I am getting a 24k total base dps.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
(42k perma-buffed with breath + foresight + combination-strike / 48k bursts for 3s)
But still that won't kill 1/4 of Act III Elite Packs: solo I can't approach without dying in a blink.
But it's great with a barbarian tank.
Solo, I am switching to defensive (1-hand 880 fist + shield): I am getting 20k base dps (35k buffed).
Takes looong to kill anything, but I can manage 4/5th of the packs (but losing money for repairs I admit).
Actually I can clean Act I without dying once (solo & duo).
I can clean Act II, but that's without winning a dime (gains = repairs).
I'm starting Act III, could be able to finish it but still quite expensive for me (100k repairs for 5 packs, really killing 4/5 and parking 1/5). I'm not going further the catapults yet, I first want to be able to clean all the packs. ;o)

Now you've jumped at the end game to kill Diablo, you can get back the acts and actually kill the mobs.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
But perhaps you can't with that gear.
With a better gear (32k dps / 1000 resist / 6k armor / 42k hp) I can't pass most of Act III elite packs.
No offense, gg anyway!

Got one from a chest while being a bit MF stuffed & 5 nepha (=140% MF).Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
That was before 1.0.3.
Now chests are not taking MF bonus into account anymore, I guess it became really really rare.
In Europe servers there were plans for sale (very very expensive, like 20M) ...
... but not anymore, there is no more plans for sale since the 1.0.3.

Lies, only lies. Those changes have nothing relating to player experience, it's only related to cheating and farming/exploiting.Posted in: News & Announcements
Jars gold nerfed to get rid of bots farming jars.
And bosses drop nerfed to prevent farming/exploiting the little bosses in act 4.
That's all. Why are they trying to convince us it's for our game experience?
Ok, it can be, by avoiding those 'exploits', but not the way they are saying it to us.
