I get better results in A2 lootwise - and most streams I've seen always go there for legendary competitions and the like as well.
A1 is still the best place to farm exp at, though.

Farming MP10 is certainly advisable for people that have the right gear for it - but those people usually don't need advises anymore anyways.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
In your case, struggling to kill stuff on MP10 would be a waste of time, 'cause your gear just isn't good enough to be able to farm MP10 effectively. That does not mean that you should be running lower MPs, though. With the recent changes to experience gain, it almost always comes down to going to the highest MP where you can still kill stuff quick enough, if you want to gain the best exp/hour. I'd say that MP7 or maybe even 8 might be best suited for you!
You have to consider that the days where you could buy top notch gear for as little as one billion (or less) are over and those people that farm MP10 effectively have probably "spent" a whole lot more on their character. There's some builds that tend to be a little cheaper than others, but the normal Dual-Wield Cookie-Cutter monk is still absurdly expensive to gear up for MP10 due to its popularity/strict gear requirements.

Noo .. that'd totally ruin AH Flipping :'D!Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Yeah, but ... I really don't see a reason why it's not included already ..

Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient RepositoriesAll these "Help me make an Archon," "How does my new Archon look" and "What should I do to play as an Archon" threads have prompted me to start on a video guide to all things Archon.
All I'm going to say now is, I'm not going to do "budget guides" at all. T
That's kind of killing the idea behind it then. You will see no positive effect like a decrease of "Help me with my char"-threads, if you don't cater those that start such threads. The ones that do either have no money or no interest in watching videos they feel don't suit them, 'cause they're too general and don't tell them what to do in their special case (even though it might not be special ).
If you do an informative video about Archon for those that already got the funds and gears, well ... what the hell? Among all builds of all classes in the entire game, Archon is the easiest to gear (not as in "cheapest", but the process of gearing an Archon does not have any complexity as it has for other builds or other classes) and probably among the easiest to play. There's just nothing you could do wrong about it. And the people that still manage to somehow screw it up - those people aren't even paying attention to forums.
So .. for a simplistic build as Archon, is it really worth putting any effort in? :[

You want to face tank all of mp10 comfortably? Change class.Posted in: Demon Hunter: The Dreadlands
No matter how far you push your EHP, there's no way to comfortably face tank mp10.

I do that every once in a while. Buying them on the Englishs-speaking channels and then re-selling them on the German ones. Some people seem to be more into gambling than others ;'DPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Other than that, possible sources include but are not limited to:
Multi-Boxing, Botting, Duping, Stockpiling, Luck, Boredom or a combination of any of the mentioned.

Just some hints:Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Inna's Favor: Get one with 8% Holy Damage and Dex/Vit-Roll instead of Allres. 160 Dex/70 Vit Favors aren't that expensive.
Inna's Temperance: Same idea. With just one random Affix roll, it's advisable to take those pants with a Dex/Vit roll rather than single Res.
Inna's Radiance: You could make up for some of the Res here. High Dex + Single/All-res is typically fairly cheap.
Stone of Jordan: The added Crit Chance is great, but with only 5% Elemental Damage and 20% Elite-Bonus, you should be able to get a better one easily. The Bell-Crit-Chance is not trackable with the basic AH-searches, so there's always situations to snipe those!
Shoes: Easiest way to make up for the lack of EHP is getting some Ice Climbers. When you're not using the Nat's 2-piece (Shoes+Ring that is), you normally either go Zuni Trails for some extra DPS or Ice Climbers for a decent EHP-boost. I'd suggest using Climbers so you get more flexible with your Skills and passives - they prodive a whole of a lot more damage potential than Zuni's would!
Skorn: Definately has the highest potential, but gets really expensive. Upgrade when you have enough gold to spend!
Gem: While I admit that there's situations where Rubies are superior to Emeralds, they aren't on MP10. You use rubies to guarantee 100% one-hits on lower MPs (for either TR or Bell One-Shotting), but on MP 10 you get to the point where you have to crit to get those mobs down in just one combo (try Exploding Palm here, it's simply awesome in the new Act 1!), so buffing the base-non-crit-damage is subpar.
What you have to keep in mind is that with a critchance of 50% (or 50.5% in your case :P), you do crit very frequently - 'cause Wave of Light actually does 3 (+1 very small) hits per cast, meaning that you get at least one crit 87.5% of the time - and that's what's needed for most mobs when your Crit-Damage is high enough! So .. Emeralds are superior to Rubies in almost every scenario on higher MP farming.

There's easy upgrades on most of your equipment. What exactly do you need advice for? Isn't it quite obvious? :[Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
If you have money:
Decent Skorn (if you want Spreadsheet DPS only) / 2 decent 1H Weapons (if you want to increase efficiency)
Mempo with Crit
Inna's Temperance with Strength
Some decent ring for your unity
If you'd prefer crafting:
Amulet (there's huge potential)
Shoulders (only some minor upgrades, but should be easy to acquire)
Bracers (you're missing quite some damage here)
Shouldn't be all that hard to get some DPS upgrades - even easier if you can spare some EHP.

Posted in: Diablo III General DiscussionQuote from overneathe
Pathing has always been like this in Crater. I've had detours of more than 10 terrain blocks in just one direction that don't lead to an exit.
I've never seen anything like it despite having leveled 2 characters to Paragon 100 solely on this very map, but then again .. this might just have been bad/good luck, RNG, differences between servers or just fate.
There's some Layouts that are all new to me on other maps as well, at least there are maps that I've never seen before.
I guess they actually have changed pathing and added new layout-pieces.
If anyone could provide a screenshot showing the layout above or something similiar, this may clear things up, but .. noone seems to have one :[
