Diablo® III

Am I ready to fight Diablo? (normal)

Hey all,

I've finally decided to put some time into my hardcore Monk, and it's my first time playing hardcore. I just wanted to ask those of you who are more experienced in not dying :-P would you all kindly inspect my profile and let me know what to improve before I fight Diablo?

I've made it through act 4 with little to no problems at all. Sometimes I take very little damage, and only once or twice was I reduced to half health. I just want to have that absolute certainty that I won't die when I take on Diablo.

Thanks very much in advance!

ur dps is way to low for lvl 33, get a weapon with a socket, and put a good ruby gem in it

A ruby, for min-max dmg? Wouldn't an emerald for crit dmg be better?

Personally, I use a square ruby on my level 27 barbarien. The base dps is in the 20-ish and dual wielding axes makes everything drop like flies using Rend (I'm currently on mp7 or 8 in A2)

I prefer raw damage over the possibility of crit unless your monk already has a high % of crit chances

You should be fine if you made it through A4 without any problems. I find A4 way harder than Diablo.

Agreed. Champ packs in A4(With their innate abilities + elite affixes) can be really rough compared to Diablo. All the bosses are fairly easy compared to champ packs IMO.

ruby is better until you can get your crit chance up above 15% so you regularly see crits. realistically though you need higher crit% to make it useful. alternatively to ruby you can use amethysts for LoH later on when they have higher LoH values (flawless square+). this would help you heal yourself through damage and make things easier on you.

much hate goes out to elite mallet lord packs >:(

i usually kill diablo at level 31 myself. though anytime i do it im in group. i can survive A4 damage by then though. if you can also then i would suggest you kill diablo in a group. it just makes things easier really because you have extra dps and you can always escape diablo's range should you need to in a group. he will just go after someone else.

Yeah, obviously in a group would be a lot safer. But, I'm trying to do hardcore on my own. So, in order to stick to that, I need to gear up my char to be able to do it solo, hence this thread :) But I appreciate all the feedback everyone!

I'm gonna try to get a socketed weapon in order to get more DPS from a ruby. Would would really help would be a high DPS spectrum, but I can't afford one at the moment in the AH.

I have all the gold on my softcore char, but none on hardcore.

Just killed him, thanks everyone! I did it solo, not in multiplayer. I went on the AH and got a new weapon, put a flawless square ruby in there, and had no problem at all. Now, on to nightmare...

Lvl30+ with appropriate gear = dead Normal Diablo.

Edit: appropriate gear = lvl20+ that add at least some stats.

Ruby vs. emerald?

I socket a star amethyst in the weapon during leveling -- 300 LoH basically means invulnerability until late in Hell.

Also, a templar with a star topaz in his weapon for thorns.
