New and Struggling Players: Read on to see how you can get a free set of Act 3 viable gear. If you just need some advice or one or two upgrades add me in game and I’ll do my best to help you out.
Everyone else: If you want to donate gear to help others add me in game. Gems and Gold are also accepted and will be put to good use. I will never profit from anything related to these giveaways.
You can check out the original thread if you want to see how this got started. It also contains a lot of advice for those hitting the Act2/3 inferno wall. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/6712881973
The Giveaway: On Friday October 5th I will choose someone to get a free set of gear. All you have to do to enter is post in this thread saying you are interested. If you are paragon level 50 or you have millions of gold in gear on your Barb I’m not likely to pick you. My plan is to do this every week so no need to worry if you don’t win this one.
The gear: It’s not going to allow you to faceroll Act 3. It should allow you to make it through Act 3 with minimal deaths at a reasonable pace. Hopefully this will help you to find new Items and learn the battles and terrain. I’m not giving away end game gear, but hopefully I can set you down that path. The gear will at least fit these requirements: 40K-50K HP, 400-500 Resist All, and 4000-5000 Armor (these are the stats on your character sheet with gear equipped). As far as DPS I’ll make it as high as possible, but the focus will be on survival. Total DPS will obviously be dependent upon what kind of deals I can find on weapons. If I can’t find a good weapon then I’ll just give you the left over gold and you can search for one that meets your needs. What left over gold you ask? Good question. I’m going to be spending 1M gold on this gear. Whatever I don’t spend I’ll give to the winner. Yes you can get good gear for 1M. I got the full setup w/weapon in the first giveaway for 750K. That was 1 hour on the AH using BIN. I’ve already gotten to work on collecting new gear. I’m not rushing this time and I’m using Bids instead of BINs. I’ve already collected several pieces comparable to what was in the first set for way less gold. This will leave more for jewelry and weapons, which is where you’ll get the most DPS. As was pointed out on the original thread I got a really good deal on the weapon, so I cannot promise a similar one every time.
Totally awesome people AKA donators:
