Diablo® III

NM Act1 + 2 Did not use 1 potion (Build) Solo

Thought I should share the current build I'm using and hope you guys can criticize it and comment. Wondering if it's viable for later game. I'm in Act 2 now and still haven't used a single potion. [I finished Act 2 without using potions, except for Belial]

Note: I play completely SOLO.

HP: 12000
DPS: 1100 (with buff from Berserker Rage)
Level: 40
1h Weapon + Shield

I'll probably change the runes to Smite (51), Revel (59) and Provocation (52) at later levels.

Please let me know how you find it!

Edit: DPS addendum for buff from Berserker Rage. Update! Finished Act 2 without using a potion except for Belial.

For curiosities sake how long does it take you to clear a screen full of enemies?

There are no fury spenders to maximize Berserker Rage. Basic rotation is to Leap, followed by Ground Stomp to suck them all in and hack 'em up with Frenzy which should proc Sidearm every 5 hits. Revenge whenever you need a heal or it's up and Ignore pain when low - which is rarely, only time I used it was on a crazy champion mob.

Nekrosis: Fyi, I finished Act 1 NM in 4 hours with full exploration. Full screen of mobs... Hmm. It's much faster than my previous AOE build which was based something like this except that it took advantage of Cleave and Rend. Also, my previous AOE build didn't work on bosses and was weak defensively.

I killed Butcher in 120s (timed) btw.

I'm suprised people still don't know this, no worries!!

go to options - gameplay options- and check the box 'elective mode'

now if you press S (skill tab) . You can click the slot you want (in the skill screen not your bar) and then with the arrows left and right of the four skills you can pick ANY skill you want.

Updated. Finished Act 2 (minus Belial) without using a single pot.

You can use almost any build without problems until Hell.

Then when you get some gear, you can use almost any build without problems until Inferno.

Inferno Act I is doable with decent gear, then act II only with almost perfect gear, then act III so far is out of reach.

So far.
