Stay awhile and listen. There is a small niche to farm lower level legs to get money to progress. I farmed with my HC Acid cloud WD patiently and solo for roughly 5 weeks 2-6 hours a night for a Signet. Got 2 Nagelrings, and maybe 40-50 other legs waiting for my slow ass brother to stop dying and join me. The only thing that kept me from giving up and sticking a knife in my throat was the fear that Bliz would go live with iLvL 63 Leorics and the price would tank. Getting a Leorics was the only available and safe solution to get my hands on ~100 million to progress gear wise into A2 Inferno safely. Paragon farming was slow and risky, so that only narrowed my possibilities. Eventually when the brother finally made it into Inferno we made a party, hit Act 2, set MP10 donned whatever MF we had and 2 Leorics dropped for him within 3 hours, one on the second run!- 28% and a 27%. He gave me the rings to sell, we split the profits and I finally got some gear I needed to be able to farm solo - brother died again and gave up HC shortly after.
I agree its lame that low iLvL legs cant drop in Inferno, but personally I'm glad that opportunity existed.

Hi Scorned, my DH is neglected so I don't have any advice to help you other than tactics that helped me kill Larder last night with my Barb. (El Tanko Wizard facerolled it no problems but Volcano Barb just went down repeatedly like a sack of shit)Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
Anyway, since you have already been doing a good job on your own in your own way you may already know this, but Larder is all about positioning. There is plenty of info out there on that subject and I am by no means an expert so just youtube or forum search it, but I'd wager that what helped me will help you. Your resistances look a bit low, but if you made it to where you are then you could theoretically pull it off. No amount of poison res will sustain you anyway.
Surely all the other DH's around here have more concrete advice for you, but good luck and welcome back to Diablo

I killed myself several times back around late act 1 or act 2 with my own DPS and lack of skill, got pissed, QQ'd to myself bitched at my monitor and the stupid game. Eventually gave up, read forums and adapted my gear and playstyle. Minor gear changes and damage throttling did the trick and completed Inferno. I play a Wizard though.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

My opinion is the auction houses don’t ruin anything; they do however force individuals to exert something called self-control and moderation. Personally I dislike the idea that the RMAH would ever make GAH obsolete but let’s keep things in present tense and on topic.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
It seems like most rejections are based on the following (oversimplified) reasoning:
I cannot farm for the items needed to complete inferno, I must farm gold or pay real currency to ‘win’. Generally the ones voicing this opinion will agree D2’s gear hunt and itemization was better. Arguably correct to some extent, but let’s not go there now.
Let's take D2 solo mode as an example, player_1 is a total loner that never traded, played with friends or interacted with anyone, ever.
Player_1 eventually finds all loot necessary to finish game in hell mode. Congratulations you have beat Diablo. Start over and farm more? Y/N
D2 player_2 does play with and trade among friends. Player_2 eventually finds all items or trades for better with friends, gets all loot necessary to finish game in hell mode. Congratulations you have beat Diablo. Start over and farm more? Y/N
There is an emerging pattern here. Let’s screw things up a bit for fun.
Fast forward to present day. Player_1 and player_2 now have optional access to a RMAH and GAH. Our player_1 and player_2 from the previous example- who incidentally were able to farm their own gear to complete Hell difficulty here in D3 with approximately the same, if not less exertion than in D2 now complain that RMAH and/or GAH is necessary to complete Inferno.
The catch is this- Inferno is optional. Tell us where in D1 or D2 there was an Inferno difficulty?? You are not forced in any way, shape or manner to continue into Inferno. There is no such requirement; and NO there is no endgame content you are missing there. Just same shit all over again. (Congratulations you have beat Diablo. Start over and farm more? Y/N)
IMO, and this is my main point, if you reject the AH then the chances that you will be farming for items to sell on AH (main reason to clear Inferno?) are infentissimle to utterly non-existent. Nothing stops you from continuing solo mode farming ad infinitum if you choose to. Rubber banding and Legendary items are far more threatening issues, but we are promised will be addressed soon™.
Your opinion counts but if you are going to insist on complaining, and you fall into this category of users may I at least offer you some cheese with your whine?

WD doesn't have Diamond Skin
@op, either a bit of LoH, lifesteal (weapons only) and discretion. Yes you will at times have to throttle your damage or compensate with more LoH/Lifesteal. Have a dusty neglected WD laying around, but I think you have a passive or skill that steals life don't you?

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from phoulmouthQuote from Hawaii_Five_0Been activly browsing these and the official forums and have not seen any substantial D3 related news from Blizzard/blues since Mike Morhaimes post over a week ago. Anyone else besides me wonder what is going on? Why the dead silence? Of course 1.0.4 is in development, but damn someone sure put a lid on it bigtime!
Any serious replies appreciated, not trying to lure in the omfg games dead trolls <_
So because you haven't heard anything new means they put a lid on it, BIGTIME? How so? They have told us all what 1.04 is about, how much more can they say?
Evidently nothing- and 'I' am not the only one that hasn't heard anything. With over 10,000 views, I wasn't the only one wondering. So after making this, my first post and following it, I think I understand why they are quiet, and that is probably the best thing. A similar thread went up on the official forums this afternoon, can't find it now. Diablo (all 3) is the only game that ever really interested me. I care and I wonder whats going on. That's the only answer I have to offer.

@OPPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
With 224% native MF and after 130-150 hours of what I'd consider casual farming mainly act 1&2, I have found three 4 property recipes (2 were the same), 1 legendary weapon recipe (lvl 54 Harvest Moon) and 1 crappy set item. All except 1, which Butcher dropped, came from Act 1 white mobs. In my solo world where I’d prefer to farm my own items, I think the drop rate sucks. However, I have to remind myself that there is a massive user pool out there farming. The auction houses are already flooded with legendary and set items so evidently someone is finding them, or crafting them for all I know? It would be interesting to discuss what would happen if the drop rate was increased in a new thread sometime.
Tonight Exalted Grand Sovereign Vambraces dropped on my first Inferno Whimseyshire run with only 5 stacks NV -no extra MF. It dropped from one of the first bears or flowers. RNG, luck or both.
Certainly sooner or later you will get drops. Good luck!

Sure it could have been an internal build early in the development stages and of course anything is possible in the future. The general ideas and information were IMO clearly communicated through the written text on that page.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
The impression I got reading the user comments was that people tend to not filter information correctly. Skimming through 50 or so of the comments following that image quickly verifies that. Yours is a good question for other reasons as well though since it indirectly sheds light on several recurring discussions that many base their opinions on.
The overall post you refer to was sloppy and a bit nonchalant at worst. Given the current conditions, a small team allocated to filter D3 information releases for accuracy - and at least attempt idiot-proofing** would help avoid further outrage and could be seen as a step in the right direction to satisfy the more serious community members’ desire for improved communication, but thats just the way I see it.
Its not like OMFG poor Blizzard is damned no matter what they say or do -kids are gonna rage etc.etc. Seriously, a multinational corporation has an obligation to communicate responsibly and accurately. We're not talinkg about re-writing the entire code base, we're talking about clear communication ffs.
An example in this case would have been to post a clear statement or, in the case of images, a visible watermark stating that the image is for mock up purposes only assuming such is the case. Overkill yes, but with as sensitive as things are right now it's better to be clear.
Apparently resources were not allocated to post a correct, up to date image along with the text. Text is easily edited, but an image may require another department’s involvement- I’ll leave it at that and allow you to draw your own conclusions what that means time and cost wise.
TL:DR Extra weapon socket? Yes please ** may not be available in your local area
