Okay, last post before I finish farming for the night. I'm amazed by the interested, and somewhat intimidated by the work ahead!
i'm having a hard time farming act 3 without dying...any sugestion on what i should throw up and what i can do....
Unfortunately, if you have a limited budget, there's not much I can do other than to encourage you to continue farming. You have, I think, 29% attack speed, but 38% critical hit chance to leech just a touch under 1,400 LOH -- don't think that's sustainable in the higher levels as the proc coefficient nerf has reduced your leeching power by 60%. So what you're gaining today (20%) will be reduced further by 60%.
i.e., 1,000 LOH today = 200 per proc; 1,000 LOH post-patch = 80 per proc
That's a massive drop. There are guys out there who have shown that 2,000 LOH is feasible, but I haven't had a chance to test that without life-steal on my gear.
lucidus#1395, 110m~, DT
As of now, what MP level do you think I'd be capable of?
I wouldn't mind switching specs to SnB, but thats if and only if doing so would mean my elites per hour at MP5+ would outpace a DT spec with my budget.
Hard to say with your low vitality. From what I remember the damage in MP5 is greater than what you're experiencing in today's Inferno. I got someone grabbing numbers for damage spikes per MP level later.
Am I ready for 1.05?
I play Ss+rend+into the Frey
Using snb or 2hander
You should ask Ender/Rezic or DBoy about that. I haven't had a chance to test out the S&B set up yet. I will tomorrow or on the weekend.
10/03/2012 07:34 PMacrimony, been following you for a bit and am trying to get used to replacing War Cry with Overpower... don't want to post my exact bank, but I'm about half of what you posted as a req for the DT build and was wondering if I'd be able to hang in 1.0.5 with my current gear and if my stated bank is enough to hopefully upgrade me from where I am now.

Hard to say. You have a similar set up to Dro, whose gear I tested, and I had difficulties sustaining even in MP4. A large part of that was due to the lack of movespeed (ideally 24% is best to avoid damage and space out tornadoes), but another part of that was the lack of extra leech. Looks like you got the rest of your gear together though.
Acrimony thanks for the reply.
I will tip you for your suggestions for gainful improvements. I know I should upgrade my jewellery but I'm waiting for 1.05 to hit first before I get those. Also, I'm reluctant to drop my mf as was suggested by dboy previously.
Sweet! I like gold :D
10/03/2012 07:53 PMEnded up flipping my IK while I was sleeping last night and made a little bit of profit. After supplementing the slots with cheap gear I kind of took the melee reduction and LS for granted lol. I did some PTR earlier with my IK and a mace instead of MW MP5 and was taking too long to kill elites IMO. Going to pickup the IK Helm/Belt possibly and just get the 2 piece since fury generation wasn't much of a problem, by the time I lost WoTB it was already off CD. Time to upgrade my weapons, I'm still sad over the 7xx dps dagger with 98% CD 3% LS 125 str and OS I lost the other day.

Uberjager actually made a post somewhere about the melee damage reduction equivalent to resistances. I believe that 20% was the equivalent of 100 physical resistance, but I can't remember; I will try and find it tomorrow.
Disregarding my jewelry (I plan to upgrade them next patch), where do you feel like I should improve the most/easiest?
I have about 250-300m.
Been debating for like a month, scared to buy a few pieces and not have a good coherent set.
If you need help, don't be afraid to ask. We'll go over your gear, talk it over, and see if it's workable. There is the 10% fee, but that's the price we require as both of us are constantly inundated with gear help requests.
There are some warts on your gear, so fire me a request if you're ready to take the leap of faith on us.
hey acrimony/dboy, a suggestion.. you should probably tell your clients how much time is needed to buy/get their gears for money, or how much time they (the clients) need their gears. i guess for 100-200m, it can be done with 1 sitting.. but probably anything above that, it might take a few days to get the right pieces for the right price.. :D
good luck in your endeavor :D
We're aware that it'll take time to build. I already went over the process with one player, and I will do so with others in the future. It's all about maximizing their gold for the highest amount of quality gear we can get them so that they can farm efficiently.
Hi Acrimony and Dboy, i've about 100m to spare, and holding onto my current jewellery before 1.05 is set in stone.
Was wondering if my current gear is able to take MP8 to MP10? Else, what sort of items should I be looking at? I know my MH is sucky, but i just couldn't bear to let go of the mighty weapon.
Any help is greatly appreciated!
Hard to say looking at your gear. But ideally, AR, vitality, dexterity (maximum of 400-450) should be the targets. For DPS, critical hit chance, attack speed. If you want proc damage, go with critical hit damage. Base damage off of class attributes (in our case, strength) contributes to expeditious elite kills too.
Hi Acrimony, I was hoping for some input on my gear. I run the standard WW build and was wondering if I am currently geared well enough for 1.05. I currently have around 40m for gear upgrades if you have any suggestions. Thanks!
Also, I do have gear anticipating the change to 1.05. The gear I have will change my stats to around 73k dps, 45k life, 860 loh, and 5.7 LS.
That sounds pretty good. More than enough I would think. Looking at your gear, you should be able to farm fairly easily at MP4/5. At 6 and beyond, I'm not too sure.
Alright, I'm done for the night. Won't be replying tomorrow as this my limit for advising. I always have more to offer, but there's only so much I can do before I lose my mind and forget I need to farm.
If you're ready to approach DBoy or me, fire us a request with the format required in the OP.
Good luck, happy farming.
