Diablo® III

First Infernal Machine, should I go?

Finally got one. Did it on MP1.

Key#1 - at first attempt,
key#2 - at first attempt,
Key#3 - after 27 attempts. Snoofo you've been in some, thanks mate :)

It took all up about 9 hours to do it. While was hunting for 3rd key, found 3 legs and 2 set items, average quality. Gained 3 paragons and about 5m gold! To me this is what Bliz wanted to do us. Yes, I'm happy, this is a game.

Now, if at MP1 I have 10% chance to get parts for a ring, should I better to hire professional killers and jump on higher MP, or go solo and hope for luck? Or may be wait until I will be OK to do MP7+ solo...

What's your experience?

atm im disregarding keys all together. my normal run pattern includes the act 3 warden anyways, so my aim is to keep doing what i was doing till i get strong enough for MP7+. By then i wouldve gathered alot of act 3 keys (i hope). Then i will go on to hunt for the other 2 keys (and plan). Then i do hellfire parts run.

I dont really want the ring for my monk tbh, only if i find the last 20 plvl too hard to obtain. I only have 2 slots for rings, and i already need SOJ and nat ring for my build to work. My main focus is to make the ring for my other 4 chars. :)

I have been helping people on MP7. Add me if you need help.

I'd hire or have someone help you on higher mp. 9 hours to get the machine, multiplying your odds of getting a part for the ring by 7 seems worth shooting for.

Im happy to help did it on mp5 last time and was fairly easy so mp7 should be good

@OP. you may want to make three machines at a time. portals opened are randomly generated. The only way to make sure you get the right boss fight is to open three portals at a time.

For the people who have done it, how do the uber bosses compare vs their regular counterparts?

I'm thinking of doing my runs on MP 2 or 3 but can't decide yet.

Any advise?

do it on 5-6, its not that hard if you have a good party.

i would recommend a wizard or two with freeze/slow time capabilities, a barb/monk with their shouts/mantras and glass canon DH

get resis and LOH up, don't worry that much about DPS cos no point having a lot if you are always dead

If you don't have the right dps, you will hit the enrage timer.

@RIZE, thanks, I'll call when be ready.

No keys tonight, legendary Cindercoat as compensation in A4 from (may be wrong) Leah soul, the one with exclamation mark who turns into yellow monster.
