    i was thinking about mp 2-3 (what they said it should be the same as it is now!), btw considering a kiting build what would you change hurricane for, calamity (1h, far from now) or manticore (xbow, veeeeery far from now) ?

    btw about SS, i do use it, i know it is a very good skill, i just can't stand the "perma SS/gloom" need somebody talks in other topics, that's not actually playing a game, to me

    it's not like i don't want to spend money, it's just that i don't have many (less than 2m) and nothing seems to be selling since a month (i never find good items, but usually i could sell some for 20-70k, now it goes 0 all the time)

    going about resist gear, let's just compare my belt: 126 dex, 154 vit, 15 AR, 7y
    searching for the same (without 7y even if i need it) with just 40 more AR asks me to fork about 8m, and since the only money i'm getting is the one from selling powders, it's too much for that little change.

    going on pants and chest (the two lowest pieces in my opinion) i can let go the mf, but i need more money to get something with AR here, not less than 3m it seems right now, still doable ofc, i can do this change (in about a month or two if nothing keeps dropping/selling) and gain about 70 AR and 4k life, but will it be enough to not be the stupid white fly in monster's den ?

    also, as i see it, you all are mostly saying that i can't play my style, that i need to play with preparation, gloom, SS, so what are the other skills for ? i want to be different, ss and gloom every 3-5 seconds annoys me, i'm ok with kiting and using these skills maybe one time now and then, but it should be doable in more ways, knockback should be one of them, immobilize/slow another one, and so on with every CC, why do i even get to chose the skills if everything's useless unless i do things in a certain way?

    getting to die multiple times is annoying, moreso when you get hitted about 32k each time, and some monsters do hit really fast, that's why i hope the boar is useful in anything (somebody knows?), i'd switch stampede for it if that's the case, the templar is useless, with the awful res he's getting from just jewelry+shield+token... he's a joke of tank

    going about crit damage, yes, mine is kinda low, just 166%, still better than nothing, also last time i checked the x/bows better than mine were so expensive i couldn't do much, i got this for knockback and life steal, thought it was good (And min damage was higher than mine)
    i think i get more dps from sharpshoot (i have just 37% crit) than cull of the weak (Also cause i don't slow at all, i'd like to use caltrops, but they 1) don't fit my tab actually with their cost and 2) the fact that you lay it below yourself is kinda stupid), i got about 50-60k base damage (depending if i use my dps helm or not), i can switch for perfectionist once it gets changed and try what happens with boar, but right now nothing, for me, beats this.

    and no, kodachii, they're nerfing CCs, you can read it clearly, in inferno you'll get a 25% base penalty, then every second the monster is CCed (and they're not even counting which type, so your follower will even worse things if you put CC attacks) reduces the 75% by 10%, so overall you'll always be lower than the fixed 60% it is in 1.0.4 right now just after your first hit.


    thanks for the help, i'll prolly try to get some chest/legs when i have the money (i guess i'll drop mf totally, these 3 months it was kinda useless to me), now am wondering, there's a guide with the "best new" legendary/set piece for every slot as a DH?

    now, just seeing the % make me wonder what the hell is wrong with blizzard, they're gonna raise the damage monsters do to us, while i'm frantically trying to understand what the hell i need to do to not be oneshotted by every spit (i know my hp is kinda low, just 28k, but i can't seem to be able to get anything better atm),

    i do not use gloom as i hate short-duration skills, and use SS only for the reflect packs (or flee, since vault is bugged-for-life), getting all res is really expensive, but i got to about 300-350, still not enough it seems, now that they are raising the damage (not lowering as they said previously) i'm wondering how am i supposed to play (since you can't play with your own style, or at least, they're preventing me from mine), they said:

    We are adjusting some runes and passives to provide ways to increase survivability

    but the only thing i see in this direction is the Boar Companion, is it worth a slot now ?
    they changed Perfectionist to increase life, armor and resistances, but 10% seems very low (2.8k hp, 300 armor, and 30-35 res, not worth it, right?), compared to other attack passives that let me kill faster, also almost all these "defensive" ways we can go require me to lower and lower my damage, i don't want a semi-tank that does no damage, but i don't want a glass cannon either, i should be able to withstand 2-3 hits

    at the beginning of 1.0.4 i've gone to the knockback style, legendary bow with 47% kb and rain of vengeance, stampede (for elites, so i can knockback more), usually i kill anything with just evasive fire, sometimes spike trap to raise the damage and kite elites with reflect (even tho they're deadly fast in act2) but now they're lowering the already very low effectivity of CCs (i thought 47% was a lot, and it isn't), seems like i wasted my money on this bow, as after just 5 seconds the knockback will be negated totally (26% of the original value, and it says that it will not have any effect if the CC is less than 0.7 or 0.5 secs too), and stampede become useless too, so i can change it for something else..

    suggestions?

    Quote from Zeyk23



    1. When doing a comparison search, use only the good stats on the item(ignore ones that are very low or not valuable), and then knock a few points off of each one to increase your result set.

    2. Don't forget that just because you see an item listed doesn't mean it's going to sell anywhere near that price. Most of the items you see on the auction house at any given time are overpriced, which is why they're just sitting there instead of selling. Always check time remaining to see how long they've been posted without selling.

    i already do that.

    Quote from aloys24


    9 out of 10 rares you find will not sell and should just be vendored.

    wish i was this lucky, i keep 1-3 each run, usually.

    You can still sell it, of course, you're better off starting the sale off with a tiny starting bid and see how far it goes.

    that's what am trying, i usually search the ah, then se it lower than everything, but it wasn't working at all, prolly because there are zero different kinds of build, so everyone is searching for the same things (which is sad)
    btw, seems like now everyone is just going for legendary/set items, so i guess yellows are the new blue.

    If the items aren't selling it means you need to work on your item appraisal skills and sell them for what they're actually worth. Sounds like you're being too optimistic with the prices.

    I personally don't bother with stuff worth less than ~500k.
    ---

    could you make some examples of gear worth 500k ?
    in about 70 runs a1 and 40 a2 i never found anything i thought it was worth much, a LOT of mf and gf drops, really too many in my opinion, btw, could you appraise these as a meter?

    ring with
    a, 9 max damage (meh),96 str, 5 aspd, 2.5 crit hit chance and 2 more "useless" affixes
    b,80 int, 180 loh, 22 crit damage + random res

    thanks for the help

    haven't been playing for like 3 weeks, but i got a problem, i kept so many rares that i find it hard to loot any more, beware, never got anything worth more than 700k, but even with 70k start price they won't sell at all, what do/would you do in this situation ?

    just trash everything ?

    nice info, by looking at it, can i assume that every mob's hp scales like that or do bosses have a different kind of treatment cause they're special ?

    also someone talked about the mf bonus applied by the MP, is it known or just guessed ?

    sorry for going a little offtopic
