I played Diablo 2, for more than 6 years and if you really enjoyed that game like I did and transformed that in a hobby/habit more than a simple game, you would understand but I see its not the case.
My skorn and vile ward were given to me by a friend who received a 2 socketed Manticore and Innas temperance. Trading is still allowed my friend, and if you dont like it or have good friends and contact, this is not of my concern.
Jewelry and my boots found the hard way. Chest was almost free after a AH BID. I do with my barb, with sell and trades more than 1 million/hour and its VERY POSSIBLE. Only play 2 hous day, do the math.
The funny part is that all the time that I spent looking the Supah barbs here is seeing its marvelous DPS, defense, resistance and itens and then want to pass one by one. I dont came here and ask: Hey people, your barbs are powerfull because you bought itens, all of you suck, and are rich @^&@^#!!
If you dont like the game as it is, call blizz. Before asking if Im a fool or nerd, I play games as long as can remind, Im 26, M.D., with a pretty girlfriend and work a lot (like a dog), dont have to much time to play, and my father was not even close of being rich. But our differences were not matched by my money/credit card. DO you know EXACTLY how much 1 pt of dmg, dps on weap, str, atack spd, crit chance, crit dmg, will improve your char DPS? Can you made assumptions and projections about weapons and armor based on that? Do you know the true relations about armor, resistances and incoming dmg? Do you know how HARD is to play WW in MP10 with a SKORN? Do you understand the importance of LIFE REGEN in a barb?
I do not believe so. Then, please, that is our main difference: I love this game and will do a lot to improve. My limit is the sky. If its bigger than you, one more time -> its not of my concern.
If Im rich or I want to play the most waited game in my life, the problem is all mine, the money is mine. Stop crying. Blizz is doing great job.
Lets rock, TRUE barbs.
