Then I saw a post on a different idea (can't find it now). It is really just a healthy mix. Get armor over 5k. Resistance over 400 (almost every piece of gear should have all resistance). Hp around 20k and damage around 30k. I can take several hits if I need to, and can solo act 2 with no real problems. The only mobs I have to avoid are ones that are MUCH faster than I am (such as small spiders). I'm getting lots of loot and cash, and ENJOYING MYSELF. DO i still die? Hell yes, but never to the point of frustration like glass cannon. And honestly, if you have played glass cannon it will only help you as you learn to kite properly and avoid things since that build =1 shot death.
Last night I played/carried my dh friend who went glass cannon through act 2. He was dead more than he was alive the entire time. He got so frustrated he rage quit before the end. Glass Canon is just too difficult for me and NOT FUN. If it works for you, great but if you are frustrated, try the balanced approach.
Try the switch over and you will be happier. Will be starting act 3 this weekend on inferno and do not expect any major problems as I will be doing some more gear upgrades.
Also, with talk of repair costs going up dramatically in the next patch, glass cannon will no longer be viable. Do the more balanced approach and you will start to enjoy the game again.
