dont get an ef. u will hate it and so will every person who does a run with u.
i have a buddy who rocks one and i flat out told him i will not do a single run with him if he uses it. infact, i handed him my main hand axe to use and dropped my dps by 30k just so i wouldnt have to deal iwht his ef. ur "paperdoll" dps may be higher, but ur effective dps is so stupidly low because of ur lack of fury and the lack of mobs ur hitting every second because they run everywhere

Dec 4, 2012wat the guy above said.Posted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
trifecta gloves are always nice
viles with more str and maybe also some vit/life%
strong offhand. Shoot for a dagger/sword. offhand attackspeed should be faster, not slower than ur mainhand
everything is fine but not great. id say you have 2 options at this point. Go for BiS gear or damn near close to it on every piece and save up gold until u can get them OR keep cashing out for smaller upgrades.
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Agadabagada-1814/hero/6471308 my barb setup. Im looking for big upgrades at this point, not shelling out gold for smaller upgrades. My next upgrade is something that i wont have to touch ever/until expansion maybe

I don't agree with the OP that clearing speed beats all. I often log drops/hour and legendaries/hour for my runs, and even though MP5 takes longer than MP0, I get like 3-4x more rare drops and legendaries per hour.
MP0 magic find cap: 375 (with NV5)
MP5 magic find cap: 500 (with NV5)
Even if you have the exact same clearing speed (unlikely, but let's give you the benefit of the doubt), mathematics say it's virtually impossible to get 3-4x more legendaries on MP5. You may have had a very lucky sample, but in the long run your "3-4x more" claim is an exaggeration. If it was true, by the way, there wouldn't be any need to fix rewards at higher MP levels.
one thing to also consider, not everyone is at 300/300 base mf. id say 50% of pple have 150 mf. 150+75 = 225 mf. 150+75+125 = 350. 1.5% more drops per kill not including the extra drop. food for thought

lol. blew me away. Cosiaruim is on my buddylist and play with him every day. great guy XD. Weve both been experimenting with diferent builds for farming fastest. He likes the HotA+WW combination. WW for whites, smash for yellow elites.
I run more of a nuke build with 5 piece IK and unforgiving passive for 4 fury/second, Also, ww hurricane + leap call of arreat + OP momentum + charge stamina + BR blood rage or w/e with the aoe effect. The he build has tons of aoe nuking capabilities, and the br rune allows for an extra range for all ur abilities. I can leap into a screen up spiders and they litterly all die insstantly instead of having to spend more time ww over every inch of the square. Basically, going from a hand held fan to a lawnmower blade
Nov 20, 2012this build really doesnt need much to work (in reletaive mp's to your gear). I started running this the day i got back ( couple weeks after 1.05 came out) by changed ONLY my skills from ww>hammer and OPCA > Rend BloodlustPosted in: Barbarian: Bastion's Keep
Attackspeed is huge
CC is huge
CD (like ww) is your damage but not neceisary for the build to work
Anyone running ww can run this build.
For those who do not have wtfpwn gear like kongor, DO NOT GET AN EF!!!!! if you are not insta gibbing elites like he is, they will be taking you on a long long long long long long long path around the world of diablo XD
In respone to the guy above this post, DW is superior in terms of being able to have perma zerk up, or at least have it up longer. 2H may have superior dps for the average person (dw probably has higher potential) but the reliability and ease factor of permazerk is very important.

If D3 had dueling, you could load up on defensive stats and let them hit you a few times
LOL that would be awesome haha. person with the killing blow gets all the drops (10k+ armor stormshield/1k res all, 2k hp regen haha)
Nov 18, 2012Anyone else here do Legendary Gobo runs in a1 first quest inferno?Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I dont sell any of my legendaris/half decent gear that wont sell for a minimum of 1mill. Instead, i toss it in my 2nd tab. Once it fill up, i join an act 1 Q1 pub game, make sure most of the pple are wearing crappy gear (ie first char/starting out) then call them to town. Yell out "finders keepers with 24%movepseed gear, and run and drop all ur gear. For you, its trash, for them, its a huge help.
We all know how hard this game is to get going in. Its not liking im giving em Ik chest or anything, just stuff to bulster their bank a bit/help their char out. Just threw out a 6cc/55 res all ring. Not the best, but will sure help them get going.
Who else does stuff like this, and if not, Why not?
I currently have 3 pple on my buddylist doing this with me

around 35k dps, i started having problems keeping zerk up in 1.03/4. Was doable, but wasnt easy.
Now that im at 110k dps, not only can i not keep zerk up, but just getting fury back=to that of what i spent is near impossible. I now run a heavily modded ww build
dropped dps by putting a MW mh and getting a sun keeper for the MF.
You aren't using into the fray on battlerage... that's your problem
the build i was running all of last night/today was using bloodbath or w/e its called. also using charge stamina, OP momentum, sprint torandos, ww huricane, leap call of arreat

Apr 20, 2013agadabagada posted a message on WotB and Archon to Receive Changes, Act IV Density to be Buffed, What's Your Favorite Shrine?, Wizard Arcane Torrent Buildthe reason these archon/zerk builds are so viable atm is because we are no longer scraping to progress through the game wehre other runes were viable. The current state of the game is taht 99% of people are looking to farm most effeciently, therefore any buff with longevity is being usedPosted in: News
Apr 19, 2013agadabagada posted a message on WotB and Archon to Receive Changes, Act IV Density to be Buffed, What's Your Favorite Shrine?, Wizard Arcane Torrent Builderrr while i agree with most of what has been said by travis and above... perma zerk already requires exceptionally specific and good gear to maintain. for ww build, you need very high crit chance and potentially move speed + control of your char and tornados + movespeed + attackspeed. The end result is a gear and skill build that allows 1 skill to be viable. For the HotA build, it requires much of the same as previously listed, but MUCH more ephasis on each (more gear dependent). I think the nerf ww build got was fine. maybe a tad more nerf but not much. The idea of perma zerk shouldnt be looked down on if its highly gear dependent and requires a bit of skill to pull off.Posted in: News
for archon, its only effective for farming things your out gearing and highly dense areas (i know we are getting a density buff so i shouldnt say much on it)
just my thoughts
Dec 9, 2009bringing us back to a few key locations wouldnt always be a bad thing. It could help the lore in that it brings us back to story we last lived (transition, recolection). It could also be fun if they use it right. Id personally like 1 or 2 flashbacks to previous events that have happened. I dont feel that this should be happeneing at the end of the game however. The first act or two would be the most optimal.Posted in: News
We already have tristrem so thats good, but i think if they dropped us into a 2nd place, thatd be nice. Arret summet has been thrown out in one of these threads, but cant really as it is now a crater. maybe just a flash back during a convo with cain? an actual flashback where ur at a birds eye view watching fallen raid a city. Or, while going through the game, you can see a similar place from the vilage ur in. we dont have to be directly in the past event/place, but seeing it or being apart of it will have some effect on u.
As for this thread, we will not be living d2 out again. They have made it quite evident that this is not d2 with new eye candy, it is a new game, more lore, new mechanics. I personally feel, other than tristrem, there will be little BIG impact from other cities or previous events. just hope some is brought back to help bridge the connection
Nov 24, 2009is there any unveiling of the chat gem? i mean, i just read through this whole discussion for chat gem stuff lol.Posted in: News
the interview is same ol in a way. heres this to munch on, but wait, not too much now lol. i know they cant tell us, but i just dont temp myself to much with it :P. BUT THE CHAT GEM! AHHHH!
as for the interview itself, props. good questions, ehh answers. no blame anywhere except that im not playing lol
Nov 19, 2009answering ur q, Heros of New Earth (if you didnt know, not belittling) and savage 2 are pretty sick games. i prefer over torchlight.Posted in: News
imo, with all these patches and games coming out, bliz is spinning thier wheels a little TOOO fast for thier own good.
sc2 (the many), wow expansions, D3, new mmo, d2 patch, wc3 patch, delay, delay.
they are stretched a little tooo thin to be able to provide thier usual unsurpased quality at this quantity. if they sit on thier quality over quantity method, more delays, more people pissed, the such.
in short, if it comes any time soon, IT WILL SUCK. if it comes in a year-ish. it will be true bliz.
Nov 19, 2009hon and savage 2 are both legit games, a little more than torchlight imo.Posted in: News
a little mix in games
have my mele fighter, dota-ness, and diablo refresh-ish which i can playon my laptop :).
only reason im on so much right now is cuz im doin a law brief and its less fun than ud think haha. but i finished so ill be off soon :P.
Nov 19, 2009rly? their patching wc3? wow. been a while hasnt it? idk. out of the wc3 loop. hon's had be busy, with savage 2 and torchlight a lil. :P.Posted in: News
as cool as it may be to get a wc3 patch, y do they get precedence over d2 when ours was annonced wayyyy b4?
Nov 19, 2009agree and disagree. full hd d2 would be sick. id chuck my comp out of my room and hook up to the tv for that.Posted in: News
for torchlight, i disagree. i love the game, so their mgiht be some bias, but i prefer 3d. imo, 2d is almost gone. ur right, however, about the "wow-ish" graphics. it doesnt capture me. like, the game is pretty well paced, doin a lot of stuff at once, and stuff, but its wierd. something about it isnt 2d. 2d has me imediatly. cant drop it. torchlight, its like on the cusp. idk y. and they did steal a lot from d3. this could, however, be wat was in the original d3, not the current one.
food for thought. thats my opinion on torchlight, graphics, and the such.
im clueless on the d2 patch. i would chuckle if they just released a patch that actually did nothing. "hey joe, we need a patch out next week or we get fired" "ok, send a 1 kb file" "sweet, sounds good". before you know it, you have a blizz file with "hahaha" writen on it, thats it.
would be hilarious... then the pitchforks.
Nov 19, 2009im agreeing with u all here. throw a dog a bone and hell be happy. WHERES THE DAMN BONE?Posted in: News
its all psychological. we are, in a way, trained. Give a rat a pellet for pushing the button. then again, then again. after a while, u give a pellet every 2 times, then 3, then 4, then once in a while. make it random. before you know it, the damn rat is psychotic and has carpol tunnel before it gets half a pellet.
right now, the blizzard grasp is loosinging on us. I know this totally sounds like bs, and i know we arnt trained, but go with it. Connect how it works to how we stand.
we were addicted through there games. we got spammed by vids early on and news. now, once in a blue moon we get something. the news is the pellet, and blizzard is the biznatch lol.
people have been saying it, we are run thin, patience is gone. Bliz really needs to rethink this strategy of thiers. i mean, they can be gerks about it cuz we will all be buying the game, but its best to keep a postive, happy fan club.
imo, being a narcisitic asshole, move all the wow pple to diablo 3 for a MONTH. think of the stuff that can get done. pump this game out in the next 6 months, and have it ready for summer. what more could a company want than to destroy a million plus peoples summers?
we arnt sheep blizzard, we have gone through hell twice, can we get a little pat on the back?
