So I spent about 3 days doing farm runs as far as I could go each time with a nephalem 5 stack.

And I was just able to kill the Butcher with a 5 stack. I had about 110-180 on each elemental resist, 39% physical resist., 64% armor reduction. 12k dps and 46k hp.

I am still swinging a 2her as I'm in no rush to go sword and board unless it's a great set.

Looking forward to some more farming of the trash up to butches so I can start Act 2 soon.
