So, Kavekk, are you getting this game?

I don't really want to reward their DRM, but I may.

I'll be adding people here when I get on next.

I just hit Act 1 Inferno, and it's like trying to punch through a brick wall with my current gear. Even the basic zombies from the beginning of the game are a real threat in groups. Soloing just isn't viable with my current gear. I've got some friends who can tank and dps, and I'm trying to be useful as a support. All elite fights are kiting for us.

I'm on the last fight of ****, and I am like 2-3 pieces of gear away from it being easy. Group play is just annoying since half the time is spent rezzing people who can't stay out of ****. It's not like the moves aren't all blatantly telegraphed so you know when to move or anything. Really peeved that your companion can't join you on it for single player.

Finished Normal, now onto Nightmare. Sad that even my drops from Diablo him(Her?)self can't touch the cheap stuff I can find on the AH.

Getting phat loot drops is a huge part of the game and the AH ruins it, imo.

Smiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lol I ran the last fight on Nightmare for an achievement, and afterwards it takes you to the next difficulty. Well, I thought it'd take me to **** but since I cleared ****, it took me to Inferno. I didn't notice until I went to explore a cellar and there was an Elite that just wrecked me. Fast arcane vortex walling. Smiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lolSmiley: lol

I feel like they should have made more AH servers and limited the number of players on each one more, to be honest. There's just such a a huge pool of items on there, it's ridiculous. Well, maybe when the RMAH is implemented, all the really good items are going to be on that, so the gold AH won't be as much of a crutch.

You'll still probably see many of the good rares on the gold AH. The RMAH will probably host all the uniques and sets, though.

Midway through Act 2 on ****. Had to step away from the game a bit due to getting really bad elite/rare setups. Probably will push through Act 2 tonight and work on Act 3. Also I should look into the AH, been trying to get my own gear and it's becoming a bother when all that drops is +str and +dex and not a single bloody item I want. Smiley: bah

Cleared the Skeleton King on Inferno. It amazes me how poorly some people play. A1 Inferno is harder than A4 ****, don't get me wrong, but I don't know how you get through A4 **** playing this terribly. Powerleveling and carries, maybe. And I'm not just talking about the gearcheck. Things like activating an event fight before clearing trash so you have room to kite or when teh whole group is spread across the map, chasing/kiting into uncleared territory, and other general situational awareness issues that you wouldn't think you'd be able to clear **** while doing.

Aside from a few mob types, A1 Inferno is pretty darn easy for any decently geared ranged class. Elite packs may be another matter, though. My only real gripe with grinding A1 is that gearing yourself up to progress through A2 isn't exactly a fast or exciting experience. The Smoke Screen nerf hurt my DH, too, at least when it came to better handling elites.

Anyway, if someone needs help with something, can PM me your tag. Not a fan of posting mine on sites since I've heard some hackings were going around.

That's the main reason why I haven't posted mine. I would rather wait for the hacking issue to die down for a while before I start jumping into groups. Better safe than sorry and all that.

On a side note, beginning of act 3 is easier than middle of act 2. I can safely say that I hate those serpent men.

I found the beginning of Act 3 to the very first challenge, which made me go get AH rares. There was one of those large brutish ogre looking things, yellow, with minions. Bashed me and I died in one hit. I had about 1200 hp. After I bought my AH items I had nearly 5k.

A3 Normal was the first time I died in my initial playthrough. When you get to the basement area of the keep, and those lunatics rush you and explode. Trying to get through there made me take my first look at AH wares in order to build some up some decent VIT on my DH.

A2 Inferno is interesting. Public games are amusing. One DH called me a terrible because I was kiting backwards towards camp and playing conservatively to kill the wasps and stuff in the canyon. He called me terrible after managing to die four times to wasps. As a DH.

Also, I had to put Caltrops back on my bar. I sacrificed my bat. Smiley: frown
Current build here.

I suppose I should have specified. I find the beginning of act 3 on **** easier than the middle of act 2 on ****. Smiley: tongue Although it was in act 3 normal when I started dying. Stuff starts to do damage that can't really be ignored like previous trash. I am looking at you boney arm pestilence d-bags.Smiley: glare

Im only in A4 Nightmare on Barb, I'm getting tired of pack of 3 Elites (Blue names) with a Rare(yellow) with Minions being spawned together. I'm guaranteed to die because I cant pull just one pack they all come. As for bosses I have to completely redo all my skills/traits for single target I wish there was a fast swap like in D2 with different gear sets. I'm decently geared with cheap rares off the AH, because I was getting crap for drops, so right now I have like 23k HP, about 2k Damage, about 100/sec life regen, and about 3% life steal +50 per swing. about 2500 Armor, and I can't remember the rest.

They things that really get me are Vortex + Laser beam mobs (Not sure what exactly they are called) and anything that drops pools of lava while they walk, and they ALWAYS seem to put it on mobs that run away. Since I have like 1 ranged ability. I'm forced to try chasing them and when they do stop, I have to be extremely careful on where i stand since if i get to close my life starts sapping faster then anything.

Also They need to make better potions, Like i said I have 22k life and the best potions I have are 6500.
