My Diablo 3 story began on the night of its release, about two hours late from trying to log in over and over again with the wrong E-mail. ( I thought it was the same error that everyone else was getting on release. Not the best way to start my troublesome d3 adventure so far lol)
I could not be more excited for the release of the game and I thoroughly enjoyed it all the way through hell on my first character (Wizard) and inferno was quite a pain until I heard of the critical mass build, after that I began flying through inferno until the nerf of cm. I could have adjusted and rebuilt to survive, or at least I would have liked to hope so, but I was absolutely broke from the high demand items with ias/crit/int when the game was still fresh. (that gear was now mostly worthless and had almost no market at least people thought that at this time.)
At this point I was pretty far ahead of the curve as far as levels go so I decided to start fresh with my original favorite character from the two previous games, warrior/barbarian. Instantly fell in love and was running through the game like no other until I got to hell and I simply could not survive, because I had zero luck for drops, here is where I would usually just find a team and everything would be okay, but I went on a job out of town and had crap hotel internet connection for almost two months.
When I got back home from the job I could not believe the progress other people had made in such a short amount of time, not only was all the gear I had now bottom tier, but I also had lost so many of the player base that I could quest with to inferno difficulty (the only character I had there was my now worthless cm wizard) I now lost interest in the game until I heard from a friend of "Paragon Levels" I looked at it as a way for me to catch up with my grinding ability, rather than the crap luck I have had so far with drops. I went back and fourth between my wizard and barbarian trying to farm mostly for gold to buy more gear.
And just like that I was back, for maybe a few days until I grew tired of dying 30 times and watching my friends play from the death screen. So once again I hung up my d3 gaming for a few weeks. A friend messaged me on facebook again saying another one of our friends had quit and he would help me out with my Barbarian.
This was the point at which I really got back into the game, he gave me some of my current gear and had a friend of his help me finish inferno and get me a hellfire ring which was fairly new content at the time. I have been grinding away as much as I can after work and in my free time, but I simply cannot survive higher mp levels of inferno to help close the gap between me and people who have been gplaying and farming since release.
Down to the point, because I could go on and on, and am willing to if you are at all interested haha. Currently paragon 16, can farm a bit of inferno, but if I run into an elite mob, I have no choice but to leave the game, I simply cannot afford the offence and defense required to farm inferno elites. I recently finally made enough cash to buy a few items which was ~12m and I decided to try out a cm wizard again, because I had heard that it was a viable method to survive inferno again, I quickly learned that for the amount of money I had I cannot farm even mid mp inferno with the gear I had bought. I would like to rebuild my barbarian, but I cannot sell the wizard gear I bought for what I bought it at, or even close the gold prices. to me it's simply not worth it to take that much of a loss after quite some time of miserable gaming, because atleast right now I have some options in the game to farm mp 0-3 rather than only a barbarian
So I currently have a skorn build that isn't great, I can farm maybe mp3 inferno with the occasional death, any higher is really pushing it. I would love if you could help me build a set that is capable of making farming worth my time. Would way rather have a dual wield than another 2h build, but anything is appreciated and am willing to donate some of my gear if it has any value to you in building another set for another person
