Diablo® III

WD in dire need of guidance...<3

Since I don't have Diablo 3 at home, I only play like 2-3 times a week in a computer shop so I haven't really gotten enough farm for both gear and gold. I currently only have 3.5mil gold and I'm having a hard time upgrading my WD. Any ideas on what the cheapest upgrade I can afford at the moment? If you have to make fun of my gear, go on right ahead. Just make sure to help me out a bit. lol. High fives all around!

PS: Both of my zunis are gifts from a friend so no, I didn't buy them.

Thanks in advance!

Start with zuni boots/ring for the set bonus and Lacuni's for 24% movement. Later on when you get more money, get a witching hour. Then after that swap out Zuni head for Visage of Giyua and a zuni off hand if you are going to be an Acid Cloud user.

Speaking of that if you are later on when you get more money you can look into stun on hands and freeze on belt ( on witching hour of course) but is a long term goal. If you are also looking to keep the acid cloud build you can look into getting some more life on hit with blackthorn pants.

For skill wise, drop SA for VQ. I also personally don't like SV and go with BR instead. Once you get more DPS you can drop PtV for GF instead.

Wow. Thanks for the quick reply, man. Anyway yes, I was actually thinking of just completing the zuni set since I already have 2. And my offhand pisses me off when I "scare off" elites because of the %chance to fear since my build requires me to just stand in place.

As for the procs, how much Attkspd (currently at 1.6) should I have to effectively proc the stun/freeze I'll be getting from the hands/belt? And what skill will proc them more often, AC or RoT? Atm, I can only spam 5 AC's at max because of my max mana and low regen. lol

For the passives, I kind of have an attachment to SV since it saves me 70% of the time when I missclick or do something stupid. So I would have to weigh that against BR in game first before changing it. And for GF, I love the 50% boost to int it gives, but is it really that efficient since it only last up to 10secs?

Sorry for the questions. I just really want to get my WD to look like yours. or at least somewhere close. haha.

That's another reason to swap into BR+ VQ so you can cast more ACs.(I currently run a 1.67APS)I prefer AC because you are hitting more mobs per cast.

BR cast reduction VQ and the GF 10% mana on globe all help you to cast AC more which will in turn allow you to proc more, which will in turn allow you to survive longer.

Best of luck to you sir !

A couple of your gear pieces are painful to look at.... you could be upgrading solidly for several hundred thousand.

1) Crit chance on your offhand (at least 7.5)

2) belt...

I'm not sure if you want to go the lacuni's/ zuni/ witching hour route with your budget although you will def want them eventually. Just upgrade your weakest spots by purchasing undervalued upgrades on ah ( be patient) and worry about the big guns later.

Have fun

I think the Atk spd won't matter as much if you intend to keep using AC. It ticks every half a sec, so you get many chances per cast and the proc rate is very high for that skill. Several WDs can show you in game the proc effects, just add the proctors as friends and watch in-game.

I'm not sure I follow.. When I look at his gear, I find it very good. Especially when I see that 350k dps in his profile. Am I missing something?

For skill wise, drop SA for VQ. I also personally don't like SV and go with BR instead. Once you get more DPS you can drop PtV for GF instead.

What the !@#$ are you wearing? I've never seen anyone wearing that:
Chance to block: 52%
Reduces damage from elites: 29%
Reduces damage from melee: 11%
Reduces damage from ranged: 6%

Looks like MCP checked my profile in my working in progress PVP set. Put it on because of this thread. http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/7592639876
I will say though even if it doesn't apply to PVP is hilarious running around in that set.
Sorry for the derail.

I'm piggy-backing on this thread. Any feedback that I could get for improving my gear? I've got around 1.5 million to play with, but I'm not sure where the best place to start is with upgrades. I feel like my crit needs a lot of improvement, but not sure - cheers.

@Wicket Save your money build up enough to get a Zuni hat/ring/boots/body. (Use pox instead of Haste lantern). After that save up for a witching hour then a CC+CD Int amulet. Then a pair of Lacunis for 12% movement. Once you have those basics out of your way you're going to have to really start saving. A skorn with life on hit should be your next purchase as you have no way of gaining HP back.
