Diablo® III

just got rich, what should i buy?

Now he's already got a better Barbarian than I do (well, pretty close ;])

For the record:
Helm: 128m (bid)
Chest: 262m (bid)
Gloves: 81m (bid)
Bracers: 60m (buy out)
Shoulders: 52m (bid)
Belt: 165m (bid)
Pants: 42m (bid)
Boots: 320m
Off-Hand: 20m (bid)
Main-Hand: 25m
Left Ring: 72m (bid)
Right Ring: 4m (told him to get it as a temp to gain appreciation for the critical hit chance on a Barbarian build)

Grand total: 1.231 billion gold for what I would calculate to be worth at least 1.75 billion.

And check out his DP page: http://www.diabloprogress.com/hero/killakush-1586/KillaKush/6739123

He's a godly Barbarian. All he needed was a godly drop and a knowledgeable WW Barbarian.

PS. First thing I asked him: What do you want to be? He said WW. Works for me.

KillaKush's build is near flawless short of incremental upgrades at exponential costs He should be incredibly grateful for not spending 1.2b on a single piece of armor. He was able to gear a top tier ww barb in less than 2 days and from a single drop.

Chill out guys. This has been a great feel-good Barbs helping Barbs story, hope it stays that way.

Why don't you just suggest what my next piece should be? Or what piece I should replace? LOL! I have 10M gold now, accumulating more everyday as I enjoy my farm/exp runs and throwing stuff in the AH.

The result is incredible by the way!

@ Moon - I would say jewelry is the clear choice but you might wanna wait till the patch when existing jewelry drops significantly in price as people start getting the Ilevel63 stuff and they try to sell their old stuff.

I figured as much.. so I'll let the gold accumulate for now then.

I thought I geared well but I'm scratching my head as to why my STR, VIT and AR is so low relative to other full-IK Barbs here. Something tells me I screwed something up.

if my math is correct at the exchange rate of $.6 (lower limit guess) for 1 million gold, you just banked over $1,000 worth of gold. (1.7BN gold * .6)/1MM= $1020 roughly.

After 15% transaction fee = $867
After 15% PayPal fee= $736.95 NET!!!!!!!!

Best advice is to wait for gold to rise a little then CASH OUT!

*edit fees

Gold isn't going to rise. Why would it? Gold's not being removed from the game, only added => More gold, lower prices.

Selling gold is stupid. Any intelligent person would use the gold to purchase $200-$250 worth items for bargain gold prices and sell the items instead.

You need to learn that items are taxed 15% only, whereas selling gold is taxed 15% twice.

edit: Unless off course you are some hardcore gold botter.

last night i found a 1300dps 90crit 2socket manticore, i threw it up on the AH for 2billion and someone bought it 10 minutes later. I now have 1.7billion(after AH cut) to upgrade my barb. My question is, should i buy 1 or 2 of the godliest IK gear(so they will always be worth a ton) or a whole new set for my barb?

opinions?

It's too bad if you have already bought stuff. I would say don't spend a dime.. refuse to spend it.

gold prices from the time of original post ($.63/mill) to yesterday ($.70/mill) rose over 10% that's additional 10%!
Agreed, long term its a downward trend but it still fluctuates in between. Prices drops arent linear. Just sayin...

Assuming everything you bought is sold. That's a gamble.

sorry but I do not understand. My gear costs just a little above 300M (from my estimates) and this guy with 1.2B has just a little more unbuffed (about 13k) dps than me, to add to the fact that I have a larger EHP (although not by much) than him. Plus I haven't fully upgraded my gear (I plan to remove my MF gear soon, which includes pants, chest and amulet).

Is the additional ms and lifesteal that he has, compared to mine, aside from the dps, very necessary and worth such a large fortune???

I do not see how this can be a proper allocation of spending.

Those telling him to cash out underestimate the euphoria one must feel when given the ability to purchase ANY BIS ITEM in the game. Especially when he didn't waste much (if anything at all) to get there.

Let the guy enjoy his new items, it's not like they don't hold the same value now. Plus, the fun he'll be having from now on will make it all worth it.

Congrats on the find dude! Hope I can say the same one day, and I too will consult some purchases with acrimony. Looks like you might have a job as a gearing adviser.

I'm sure that Acrimony will chime in, but I have a few thoughts.

1) An extra 12 MS is HUGE for WW barb and so is the extra LS given his extremely high DPS. How much do you think your skorn would be worth if it had 3% LS on top of its existing stats?

2) You probably built your barb over the course of months, giving you lots of time to snag bargains through bidding/sniping. Acrimony built the set over a few days which gives a lot less time to find bargains.

3) 13K unbuffed DPS is big. It's the nature of the game that it's relatively cheap to get to a reasonably good level, but it's almost exponentially more expensive to get upgrades after a certain point. As a couple of examples, look at my character. I recently upgraded bracers and boots. My current bracers cost 30M vs 4.4M for my old bracers and essentially added just 1.5 CC and the extra armor but was otherwise the same. My boots cost me 28.6M vs 5M for my old boots and I gained 19 Str and 29 AR while losing 41 Vit.

4) You have 18 paragon levels on Killakush, so the difference in gear is larger than at first glance.

The dps difference is quite a bit bigger than it looks because it's not really fair to compare the DPS of someone who uses Skorn to someone who duel wields directly. He would get ~25k more displayed dps with Skorn. I'd say that the prices for the items looks about right. I will leave my opinion to myself though concerning the gear choices.
