First Question - Are people potentially going in under-geared? I am not telling anyone that they are. I am not questioning anyone's ability to play the game. A very simple question. Are you taking the gear that you just beat hell with or are you working on gearing up as to have an easier time? This leads me to my next question.
Second Question - Is gearing up possible? Can we actually farm up in hell to be able to get the gear required for inferno. A lot of what I am gathering as the answer to this question is no. However, with the game only being out a week there is no way to be certain that we won't see the drops we need in hell. To make it very simple, can we get viable act 1 inferno gear in hell or can you only get viable inferno gear in inferno?
The main reason I ask these questions are fairly obvious. The first one will show us if people are just expecting to be able to dominate the final difficultly without putting in the work to be able to deal with it or if they are actually putting in the time and it just isn't working. With my second question I am trying to find out if there is any purpose to running hell over and over. If the gear just isn't there in hell and has to be acquired in inferno then that seems to be a broken game mechanic. You can't have us needing to be able to kill things in inferno to get the gear required to step in to inferno.
Let us do our best to keep this a tame discussion. As I said I am not questioning anyone's ability to play the game and I am not trying to shoot anyone down. I just want to know (theory craft if we don't have factual answers) if gearing on my monk is possible or if I have to roll a ranged to gear up my melee ala D2 (making a MF sorc for your other characters gear). Thank you all for your time and answers.
