At the Watch Tower, a group of white mobs prevent me from going down the stairs so I had to kill them to make my way... what do I see from a white cultist?? Legendary Ring... wink.gif Hierophant's Seal (lvl 60 ilvl 61 ring). crap stats (46 dex, 36 intel, 6% max life, 8% dmg to demons, Armor, Life Regens) but it's always fun to have a drop like that. Wish I'll get more with the new 1.0.4 tongue.gif

I haven't had a legendary drop in quite some time now so I figure I'm due smile.gif Still haven't even come across a set item. I'm hoping I can survive co-op in Act 3 now and get some better drops as well. Based on the patch notes, they've really nerfed the difficulty of elites in Inferno, so I think farming will be a LOT easier now!

My last legendary was a long time ago also. i just hope I won't go into a slump without finding new ones wink.gif

I hope the drops in Act 3 are really better because I've been farming act 3(without alot of MF) but the ilvls were higher, the quality of the rolls were pretty bad. At least i found a jeweler's plan last week biggrin.gif

I think that farming in group will be better now (if everyone is good) with the limit of HP increase to 75%.

What MF do you run with in A3? I know that is supposed to make a difference in the quality of the items. At least A3 is supposed to have a higher % of lvl63 items and now lvl61-62 items have the potential of rolling top-end dps. I'm really looking forward to the Paragon system and getting away from MF gear as it is hard to get good damage stats along with it. I've tried swapping gear as well but find it cumbersome.

What's your BattleTag? Maybe we can do some A3 runs smile.gif

Right now I was mostly just running Act 3 for fun with ~100 Mf (NV 5 redface.gif) If I was going full MF with shield/fist I could have more but it's boring tongue.gif I stopped MFing for the last couple of weeks since I knew the drops would improve in 1.0.4 and leveled my alts instead.

I didn't gave Act 3 a full chance in MF set, but I will probably with the nerf made to the damage. My friend also levelled his monk to 60 and decided he would MF with it. So we now run Dual Monk Style, which is a pretty strong combo. I think we will manage act 3 easily and if we have people from here tag alone it will be even better biggrin.gif

Levelling up Paragon will aslo make Farming act 3-4 easier by removing some MF gears for DPS gears.

My btag is : Dashboard#1584 if anyone in the thread want to add me, go ahead, just write something AVS in the message so I know it's not a bot or hacker wink.gif

What class does everyone use? We seem to be 4 active in the thread, we could make a good 4man group. My monk is my main.

Barbarian here. I can't remember my battletag, and that site is blocked at work. I will try to add it when I get on next, (getting ready for a buisness trip for a few weeks so play time will be all screwed up).

The legendary challenge was half-completed tongue.gif

I didn't find a legendary but my friend did! I was a non-buffed Fist Weapon which sucked but at least we found one biggrin.gif

Now at Paragon level 2!
post #547 of 668
Hit PL2 as well, but no legendary/set items or even any rares worth getting excited over. Been mainly doing VoA runs in A2 with my Monk. I sit at about 150% MF with full NV stack.

I'll be back at it tonight hoping my luck will change smile.gif
post #548 of 668
Made it to Inferno Act 3 as a solo Monk but without drastic upgrades I don't think I will make it further. Only found two legendary items so far and neither was that great. Looks like I will have to do a lot more farming to get further.

the first progression I was able to make with my monk solo in Act 3 Inferno (and act 4 since I used the same gear) was using a fist/shield combo with Helm of Command and tank gear. Act 3 was pretty easy using the Sweeping Wind - Cyclone build (with enough crit chance and crit damage). After you cleared it, you can farm or farm act 1-2 and once you get better gear, you can DW the act. I can now DW act 3 but not Act 4 (haven't tried it since 1.0.4 tho).

No legendary drop for me since 1.0.4, even tho I'm running with 310% MF in group and 320+ solo with my follower mad.gif
post #550 of 668
Finally cleared act4. Almost impossible for me to die from in act 1 and 2. Act 3/4 I'll die about 15/20times total. Diablo sadly is easier then the elites.

The hard part in Diablo's fight is the Shadow Clones! The rest is pretty easy.

I played for a good 4-5 hours yesterday farming with 280 to 308 MF.... nothing dropped for me. But everyone I ran with did, even tho they had lower MF than me mad.gif Noticable drops were : 1500 DPS Grandfather, Inna's Pants, Vile Ward Shoulders.... rolleyes.gif The reward system in Diablo 3 is way off. In 5 hours of farming you NEED to find at least 1 good item. If you spent 5 hours farming in Diablo 2, you would get at least one good se/unique item.

Spending hours like that without getting any quality drop will discourage alot of players... I know it did for me yesterday... and I played Diablo 2 since launch so I know farming/grinding and it's not a problem for me. But farming without result is frustrating. I know I gain Paragon Levels but still, I want items biggrin.gif

The drop rates flat-out stink right now! I've hit Paragon level 6 and have yet to see a set/legendary item in that time. I have only come across a handful of items worth anything. I honestly don't know why I keep playing this game. I guess I would like to finish Inferno eventually and I'm having some fun leveling up my Barbarian.

The problem is largely the AH and limiting drops to maximize Blizzard's profits. I know a lot of people have already left the game and I'm not sure PvP will be enough to bring them back. Blizzard should be seriously concerned about the longevity of this game.

I think once Borderlands 2 comes out in a few weeks, I'll be done with this game.
post #553 of 668
I've gotten some decent items. Anything I've picked up is yet to work for my barb. But, I've sold about 7 items @ 9M and higher. So I have record breaking gold for me smile.gif
post #554 of 668
Got lucky on a recent farming run in Act 2 and got two legendary items. One was a decent 2-hander with 1150 dps and the other was Barbarian belt. I'm not sure they'll fetch much on the AH so I might hold onto them to use with my Barbarian once I get him leveled up. Still waiting on that set item though!
post #555 of 668
I'm looking for people to try to farm any of the inferno acts. I can survive on all of them. So you don't have to worry about trying to baby me. But if anyone is looking for a decent barb to help them farm or beat anyone. Feel free to say so. I tend to find the game a little bit more fun when playing with people.

We could use a barb for our runs.

We usually run act 3 with 2 or 3 people so a barb could fit.

The more common combinaison is me (monk) and my friend playing his Demon Hunter (and restarted loving it lately and shelved his monk). and we have a CM/WW Wizard running with us. We sometimes have another friend tag along and they are usually not ready for act 3 so they drag us down biggrin.gif

What's your battletag?

I can change up my barb to have a bit more strength. I rarely die now. If I do it's usually from lag or a group of 3 elites at once getting nailed by 4 Arcanes + Poison. I work very well with monks. I can use my barb how he is now. Or change it to what it was before. I'm a lot more mobile now. Before I could just sit on whomever I'm attacking and just light em up. A large group can be killed rather quickly in both set ups. I farm daily.

Nice run last night Juke. Except for those Waller that spammed the walls on us! tongue.gif

My friend DH is very squeeshy but I think he has japanese blood... he likes to kamikaze and run into the fight with Trail of Cinders! biggrin.gif

Runs are faster without picking up the blues. Now we just need to figure out if we do the Fields + Bridge + Siege to Azmodan and then keep doing the Depths and Stonefort or should we just restart and redo the run again...

I'm debating if I should change up my barb to be able to concentrate on 1 vs a group of people. Would help us kill a little faster. I'll mess around with it today when I get off work and see how I can have it. I could go back to my old set up but I like being able to run around into pretty much everything lol.

As for the runs. I usually go right after the elites. Only kill others whens it's a big group. I'm up for anything though. It was fun.

Your build was fine and really.. play whatever you like the most wink.gif We play to have fun also, not only farm the best way and not waste time... hence why my friend usually just jump in the group with Trail of Cinders or kill himself with reflect damages even tho he knows he's gonna die biggrin.gif

Having me in the group with Sweeping Wind doing AoE and you running around with tornadoes doing AoE Damage and the DH doing Multishot and other multi-target dmg... groups went down pretty fast. I see no problem keeping this play-style. All I need is buy new claws to get 30k+ DPS while maintining my 306% MF smile.gif

It's just sad that we didn't drop any Legendary or Set item last night .. I'm having a long bad luck stretch lately mad.gif

I was very surprised we didn't get anything really great. We did a great run and rarely died. MF was high and still nothing. Question. For solo farming. Who is the best follower to use?

RNG is RNG....rolleyes.gif

It depends on what you need. I usually use the Enchantress because of her IAS and Armor boost.

The scoundrel has a Crit chance bonus and the templar... well.... no real skill buff but I think he's the only one able to use some items types and some Legendary has MF on it. However, there is a Staff for Enchantress with40+ MF/GF. My enchantress uses a 2Hand sword anyways tongue.gif

Wow. I just got two legendary items doing exactly what we did last night.

After 1 week running with 306% MF and not finding a single legendary/set item... I finally found one this weekend... Hand Crossbow. The main-hand Danetta's. 980 DPS, 949 LoH.

I bought the off-hand for 750k just to try it on my Demon Hunter tongue.gif I'm sitting at around 50K DPS (91K with SS) but my DH needs lots of gear upgrade.
post #565 of 668
I'm not entirely sure why I still play. My barb can manage all acts on inferno just fine. I'm decently strong now. ( 82K after buffs. Can get to 102K ) It's going to cost a TON of gold to get my barb any higher. Why of why am I addicted to the chance of getting stronger lol.

I feel you tongue.gif

Right now I know that I only play when I have friends online. D2 I played alot single-player without a problem but in Diablo 3... the fun isn't there. If my friends are online, we just hop on Skype and fool around while MFing but alone.... I put music on but still not as fun usually, except if I'm in the mood wink.gif

Played last night. Was in the middle of farming act 3. Basically changed my mind half way threw and just turned it off. I wasn't interested in playing anymore. Now I hear they plan to make inferno about 25% easier!? That just sucks. It's easy enough now.

you should try a different class for more challenge.

Double tornado barb with good gear can easily solo inferno. My barb isn't that well geared and he can stand his ground in act 3. I can't imagine with your gears! smile.gif

My barb had recently been switched to double tornado the day I started playing with you. Before he was a ranged. Before that he was just an all out tank doing about 145K DPS. Was fun to just maul everything down. The only way I could make it hard again is if I were to remove all my gear and start over. No idea what to do.

The point of the end-game is basically farming. I did hear they are likely bringing back the PlayerX option from D2 for added challenge and better loot.
