1 Diablo 3: Inferno - A Wizards story on Sun Jul 01, 2012 1:53 pm

Once I got to level 60 and Inferno I thought life was good...

About a third of the way through Act 1 things got really tough which usually means it's time to upgrade.

The only problem is that the high end items are very expensive to buy on the Auction House.

I has about 100k in the bank which will barely buy one medium item.

Enter gold farming

Once you get to level 60 Blizzard added Nephalem Valor. Every elite you kill gives you +25% gold/item find which lasts 30min (and resets the timer). You can kill up to five elites to get +125%. I found some cheap gold find items on AH and have +95% gold find as a base.

So far I found a couple of nice areas to get gold.

Inferno: No NV, but the Dark Celler out side the Old Ruins usually has 3-5k and there is sometimes a well were you can get another 2-4k. You can do this over and over again (each run only takes a minute or two, but the celler and well don't always spawn, about 40% spawn rate).

Hell: Doing a Butcher run, I can usually get 5NV (+125%) and about 60k. Then the three crypts in the cemetary while NV is still active. The brings in another 40-50k.

I read were others are making 300k per hour, but I think I'm only aroung 150k/hour.

Once I get enough to buy some decent equipment, I'll start back up in Inferno.

You can also load yourself up with Gold Increase items.
So where do you get Nephalem Valor?

I do, I have a set of equipment for normal adventuring and another for farming.

You get Nephalem Valor automatically at level 60.

I guess it's an insentive to keep playing your level 60 char since you don't go up in level anymore.

After farming for a few days I made over 1M gp. Bought a few new items and decided to try adventuring again.

Night and Day. Cool

The monsters that use to take me out in one hit were now falling before me with ease. I was able to complete Act I with little problem.


Act II
Looks like Blizzard thought things were a bit too easy and upped the monsters a bit more...

The only thing I could really upgrade at this point was my weapon and skills.

I ended up switching to a 2-handed weapon (kinda funny watching my wizard run around with a big two handed hammer) with over 1k DPS. It's a bit slower than what I'm used to and ended up switching my main attack power to compensate.

Went back through Act I and basically walked through the monsters once I got the hang of the new powers and tactics.

Will be trying Act II again soon.

Act II:
Progressing slowly...

The normal monsters and bosses aren't too bad. The elite and champions are very difficult, some almost impossible.

I've had to evade many of the tougher elites in Act II which means its time for equipment upgrades again.

Currently at:
Health ~26k
DPS ~22k
Armor ~4k
Resist All ~600

Upgrading my weapon will be costly as all the one I seen in the AH are 1M+.

Currently searching for deals on Int 140+/Vit 140+/ResistAll 50+ items in the AH.

No good farming spots in Act II. Hopefully I can get through Act II without dying too much. I hear Act III is a bit better (tougher, but better maps and loot Smile).

Sounds like it's time to say screw Inferno. It's not like you get anything cool out of finishing it.
You should just start a new character.

But I want to beat the game!!! Twisted Evil

I want the satisfaction of melting Diablos face off with a Venom Hydra or Disintegrate.


Looking at some of the forum threads I need to start spending about 500k per item to regear to finish Act II. This is probably why I'm struggling since my gear was about 50k-200k each.

I'd sugest playing in public games at least for Act II until you get to the juicier farm grounds in Act III. The game seems much easier with a party than solo (which I think is good)

My monk can't finish hell. I'm in the last half of act 4 make my way up to Diablo.
When i run into a group of 3 champions with those laser beams I'm toast.
Currently at:
Health ~20k
DPS ~12k
Armor ~5k
Resist All ~400

Need to do a lot of farming to make enough to upgrade.

I think that depends on your class.
The larger the party the tougher the monster are.
But it would feel easier for squishy wizards, DHs and witch docs with defender types up front.

For some reason my wizard seems to die less solo.

I tend to play much slower/cautionsly than others. I'll send out a hydra to see if there are any monsters close and blast any that come to attack. Then inch forward and repeat. It's slow going, but works for me.

In a party there is a lot more chaos with monsters coming in from all directions. Since the monsters are tougher, I die quicker.

Made it to inferno while playing with Damon.
The Elites & Champs in act 1 are nasty.
Have to do a lot of running around to stay alive.

Spent 500K on upgraded items but don't see a big improvment in stats.
Currently around:
Health ~22k
DPS ~15k
Armor ~6k
Resist All ~500

We'll see if it make a difference tonight.

Looks like I'm not alone...

I've been reading this Wizard's Inferno Guide and it sheds a lot of light on the issues I've been running into.

I haven't checked, but they should have guides for other classes as well.

Though I do need to upgrade a few items, the biggest mistake I've been making is trying to kill all monsters I encounter. Some are just not killable solo or not worth the trouble.

Another mistake I've been making is trying to get moderate Int/Vit on all items. It does increase my DPS, but the costs is skyrocketing. It's better to get some items with really high values in Int (for a wizard) or Vit, both aren't needed.

Storage is getting full and am starting to sell stuff off.

If there anything of interest, let me know.








A few I was planning on selling on AH for 100k+ (Hammer Jammers and a couple of others). But if anyone needs an item or to, it's yours.

Damn dude, all of your "B" items are way better than my highest PC's main items! And you're still needing a serious upgrade?? Any of those will help me so no need to save anything in particular for me. Next time we're online together, just give me anything & it's better than what I have... (& thanks!)

I'd like the Keen Talon and Royalty Style if possible.
Thanks.

I could probably use the Spell Hate wand when my wizard hits 60.

Holy crap! Thanks to those 2 weapons Ken gave me, I went from 4k dps to 8k dps (& I was only that high because of items Ross gave me). I went from dying over & over and not being able to get enough gold to pay for repairs, to clearing the catapults. I'm pretty sure I'm still the weakest 60 around... Oh well. Thanks again Ken!

Keen Talon went to Brad... I'll save the amulet.

If I see another monk weapon, I'll save it as well.

I think the Keen Talon is a hand crossbow. Is Brad's monk using a crossbow?

Sorry, you're right. I gave Brad the two monk weapons. I'll put the xbow and amulet aside for you.

Hmm, I'm not sure if its a bug or intended behavior, but...

My damage output went up by a lot when I started using the Cold Blooded passive skill.

If I case Blizzard, which chill/slows targets in an area, then any other damage I do also benefits from the +20% boost.

I always thought Cold Blooded only worked for cold powers. It looks like it works on all powers while they're "chilled".

I met a guy on fb who said he cleared out Inferno and makes extra $$ farming Inferno at RMAH. He said his favorite character is the wizard because "there's a glitch where you can continually spam 'blizard'".
