So I linked up my paypal account to my battle.net and when I list auctions, it still tells me I haven't setup paypal? Any ideas or is there just a waiting period before it goes through?

Did you set up the SMS alerts too? That was the problem I was having.

Any geared class can do that. . .

All I can say is GL soloing Diablo on a monk. ;)

Thought i got 2 really good items on last run, but not so much. Saw a 1200dmg weapon, but then it was only a 2-hand....then i saw a legendary monk fist with 280 dex but it was only 450dmg. Oh well.

Well, after watching Zrave do one million gold Barb builds that work far better than my current build and using an EHP calculator to determine that my gear, despite having high resists, is relatively bad, I've decided to sell off all my Barb gear and start from scratch. This should be fun.

I second the GL. I started a Monk because it looks fun but now it's hell :lol:. Too far in on my monk to just quit as well and level up something else.

I think I am realistically just going to end up buying a copy for my GF this week and starting a character with her. I spent Saturday cleaning out her macbook (as of opening the fucker up and using some compressed air), and making sure the game ran fine (which it did thank god, was worried because she had a 2007 macbook). She wants the game anyway so I figure I can make my investment back on the RMA.

Amusing fight in Act III inferno. Was in the Icefall caves and ran across a Possessed rare mob with Illusion affix. They spawned a bunch of themselves and I killed them quick....then my screen slowed to a crawl as they all exploded. Took out all the minions and almost the rare too, so that was fun.

And actually got an upgrade from them - pants with the same stats + 50 physical resist.

For the real money auction house does Blizzard charge you if the item does not sell or only if it sells they take a percent?

Only if it sells. And they only take the 15% if you cash out using paypal. Putting the money in your Battle.net wallet you just get charged the $1 fee.

So, after getting rid of my gear and spending 2.5m in the Ah on new gear, I can succesfully fight my way through Act 3. My DPs isnt that high, so things take awhile to die, but I can get it done.

What is your new DPS? I'm around 22k with buffs but admittedly my gear isn't very good. I could build a tank build but it bores me to tears.

My DPS is only 10k. Like I said, it takes me awhile to kill things. I basically wound up upping my HP by 20k and better managing my stats on my items. Made a pretty big difference.

I'll have to check out that video.

Did you find it better to focus on armor, vitality, or resist?

My armor and Vit are pretty decent but I am only now starting to work on resist. I find normal mobs I am fine but if they have something like fire link , arcane, etc its problematic.

I just tried to get enough resists to be around the 850 mark, with both fire and physical at like 900 or so. Other than that, I mainly focused on getting gear that hard large chunks of strength or vitality. Percent life is also a great stat to have.

Also, try for a Sacred shield if possible. They seem to have gone up in price recently, but their block percentage and the amount they can block are a big help. I grabbed a blue one with 26% block chance and 11% life for 300k or so and just wound up making up the other stats on other pieces. The key is to not try and go for too much on a single piece. Go for fewer stats with larger chunks rather than a piece that tries to do it all with lower stats (assuming you're working with a smaller budget).

New barb at 60, tried act 2 is obviously way out of my league. Any small summary of what I should be farming?

If you want to addme hit BigPopov#1675 up. Have up to act 2 unlocked.

I usually do the halls of agony ---> warden ----> butcher. Just make sure you kill them both with 5 stacks of nv.

I do similar, but I first waypoint to the cemetary and clear the crypts so that I have an easy 5 stack before taking on the bigger badder rares.

When I used to run it, I just started the quest at the end of Leoric's Mansion and ran from there. I had 5x NV by the time I got to the Jailor.

Halls of Agony 1 -> 1-2 NV
Halls of Agony 2 -> 2-3 NV
Jails -> 2-3 NV
Kill Jailor
Halls of Agony 3 -> Run straight to logical areas where exit is likely to be.

I usually cut out Halls 1 and instead took the waypoint to Norther Highlands and cleared out the Watch Tower (which spawns most of the time, and always on the western edge). There are usually at least 2 or 3 champ packs in there, as well as a Resplendent Chest.

I run back into the mansion, there's usually 1 champ pack in there or even out in the front...sometimes 2 or even 3. Then run back through the manion and do what everyone else is. So by the time I reach the jailer I have 5 stacks.

Anyone else use Fields of Slaughter for EXP farming? Seems like a good place with the large number of enemies that spawn right from the bridge checkpoint.

Yeah, I had thought about that in the past but never really gave it a shot. By the time it was brought up in this thread originally, I was already in Act 3 so I didn't bother. I know the tower of which you speak of though. It's not terribly Wizard friendly if the affixes go down the shitter from what I remember.

So is it a good idea to dump my IAS gear pre 1.03? My build is pretty IAS heavy (gloves, ammy, 2 rings) so probably not going to like this change too much. Only the gloves and maybe 1 ring are worth any coin to worry about though.

Honestly even with the nerf, I'm not sure if there's anything that would be any more useful post-nerf to replace it with. Obviously I don't know what's going to happen to it specifically in the patch, so I can't say with any certainty.

This is one of my biggest problems spending major money on any item as the game is still in flux and items can change dramatically.
