That's my Demon Hunter that's doing that, and she's at level 56 I believe.
Does anyone know which is better for DH's? 2-Hand Xbows or a 2-Handed weapon with a quiver? or is it basically dependent on your gear?
I'm using two hand Crossbows now, and just switched from Bow/Quiver combo. My DPS went up but that's mainly because of the nice quality weapons I bought.

Haven't played a Demon Hunter yet...

For my wizard I use a 1-handed weapon (wand, sword, ax) in my main hand and use a source or shield in my off hand.

You can get about the same DPS with a 2-handed, but you loose out on all the addituional bonuses an off-hand item can provide.

For me, some of the bosses are a bit too tough to stand and fight. For them I use a shield (for the added defence and block chance) and do a lot of hit and run while my Hydra wears them down.

That's what I do, but in addition to hit, run, summon Hydras, we need to add in die, refresh, repeat... Sad

If there's an item with cetain stats anyone want me to keep an eye out for let me know.

Barbs want strength and vitality and resistances. Other than that I have no idea.

I have under 100k gp, so save anything exceptional with sockets and I'm sure it's an improvement over what I've got...

You may want to try gold/item farming for a bit. Hell Act I should work until you have items that allow you to farm Inferno Act I.

Basically I just:
1. Create a new quest for Act I: "Imprisoned Angel"
2. Port to the Forgotten Cemetary
3. Clean out each crypt (You should be able to get 3-4 Nephalem Valor)
4. Port to the last waypoint.
5. Clean out each level on your way to the Butcher.

With 5 NV you get a lot of gold and item drops. Most items are sold to the vendors, but you'll find an occasional nice one that can be sold on the AH for a decent price.



Found a few items with 100+ Dex, a few others with 50+ Dex with ~30 Resist All.
A 1-handed monk weapon with 500+ DPS

Found a couple of decent Demon Hunter items (nice 1-handed bow 700+ DPS and quiver).

Haven't found much a Barbarian could use...

How close is everyone else to getting to Inferno?

I see several other have made it to level 60, not sure if they've finished Hell yet though.

Not close at all. I'm in Act4, but got there from a full party adventure and can't kill anything solo. Went broke repairing my equipment. Playing my wizard now (44) in NM.

111 Re: Diablo 3 on Wed Jul 11, 2012 12:32 pm

I solo up to half way through act 4 and hit a wall.
Doing some farming now but only getting about 120K per hr.
It seem item prices have been going up too.
To get a good upgrade on stuff I have, I'll have to pay millions for each piece.

I believe it, there have been some reports in credible news sources about the deaths before. Addiction is addiction no matter what the "drug".

Not sure if it's a bug...

But if you want to level up really fast you can put a high level ruby into a socketed helm.

Leveled my barbarian up to 60 in a week, he had +23% exp.

Gems have a level limit but I don't think the game looks at it.

115 Re: Diablo 3 on Mon Aug 13, 2012 1:37 pm

I haven't tried it out for a low level character, but you should be able to put high level gems into low level socketed weapons.

My barbarian currently uses two weapons. In his offhand he has a low level dagger with +600 Life on hit and a socketed gem that adds another +300 LoH. Would have been very nice to have during the lower levels...

116 Re: Diablo 3 on Wed Aug 22, 2012 7:08 am

Patch 1.04 is out...

I believe the biggest is that you can now level up to 100. From 61-100 you gain magic/gold find chance and stat bumps.

The added more powerful legendaries.

And tweaked a few classes (my wizard build got a nerf Sad)

They also said the elites monsters are a little weaker, and don't scales as much when you group.

I have a PC in Act 1 of Inferno now! I went from barely surviving Act 2 Hell solo, to chasing Ken's PCs trying to keep up as he cleared Act 2-3 at a full sprint. It felt like the almost last scene of "Last of the Mohicans" as he killed everything as he ran by. He left me to kill Diablo solo, but thanks to his handmedowns, I was able to beat him! :-) (DPS went from 4500 to 18000)

Now if I could only get rid of those computer crashes... :-/

Sorry for dropping out on you tonight Ken. D3 was very glitchy for me today.

Ross, no, turning down the graphics helped in AH, but not in game. AARRGGH!!

No problem, was about time for me to take off anyways.

I was able to get through the timed treasure vault. Mostly because I got lucky and picked the correct route, and had teleport so I could skip past several of the monster groups. Smile

Glad I could help.

One thing you may want to do is reevaluate your spell/skill selections.

I know I had to revise mine several times while going through Inferno.

Take a look at...
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#acXiOk!ZUY!ccaaYc

That build is similar to your, but should do more damage.

Diamond Skin: you may want to switch to Crystal Shell since it will double the amount of damage you can absorb.
Hydra: Patch 1.04 increased the damage done by Arcane Hydra. Might be worth looking into.
Energy Armor: May want to go with Force until resists are a bit higher.

Skills:
Temporal Flux will allow your arcane spells (Hydra, Magic Missile, Arcane Orb) to slow targets, this gives you extra time to hit them again.
Glass Cannon increases the damage of all your powers. It will decrease your armor, but Blur counters that.

Just a thought...




I have two builds I normally play.
Inferno Act 2 and below I normally play a CM/Archon build
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#kUXmVO!bgY!ZYaccc

Inferno Act3 & 4 I normally play a CM/Melee build
http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#VQXYhO!bgW!cZaZcc

I prefer the CM/Archon build, but died too much in Act 3 (even with 50k DPS and 1100 Resist All). The CM/Melee build is very hard on the hands as you have to constantly press mouse/keys to keep the monsters frozen and deal damage. It's very effective though against almost all monster types. It also requires a critical hit chance 35+, but doesn't require much damage. Some get by with as little as 14k DPS, it just takes longer to kill stuff, but since they're frozen and can't hurt you, it works.

Will do. I think it prudent to heed the advice of someone who beat Inferno!
