Played through on Normal (Monster Level 10), as it was too easy without the Monster leveling.
In my 1st playthrough I only used the weapons in the game, no Auction house, didn't read anything, no outside input, just me and the game.
I'm about 1/2 way through Nightmare (still Monster L10) and have started tinkering with Auction House. My 1st attempts were pretty poor, big weapon damage but the balance I had attained from carefully picking between items after scouring every inch of every map, breaking items down for materials and saving for something that never came (until now I guess) was fun.
So, now I am learning the benefits of Auction House. Bought and sold a few items, working out how to make a few $$$ without wasting lots of time making money for items I dont really need.
Just clocked through upto Level 50, looking to play all the way through with some Auctioning Assistance.
My build focus is around high damage and vitality, but this is pretty thin and the further I get, the harder its going to be to make that basic setup work.
So, after any quick feedback any of you may have for a late-comer to D3 (I'm a 32yo gamer, played a lot of games over the years, but my first go at the Diablo series) guides you may recommend, threads that you recommend. Please look me up on here to see my setup if you care enough.
Feel free to look at my profile, its a little out of whack until it updates, but the highlights are:
Hi Vel - Rapid Fire
Caltrops with spikes
The Stun are new to L50, so I'm seeing if this combo works for me.
