Diablo® III

Free Gear and Advice for *NEW* Players!

Update 6/2/13

I personally am very rarely on these days, so people looking to use this service may be better served by adding any one other than myself. Good luck to all!

Update 2/7/13

Some people have added me, and I will do my best to help those out. However, I'm recently a dad, so even if I'm online I may be AFK, and when I am online, its pretty much my only chance to play this game so I may not be as quick to respond as others willing to help. That being said, still feel free to add me and I will do my best at juggling game time and advice time for you new players.

Original Post

Recently someone posted the ever present "I need help" thread and I replied to it. He ended up adding me in game, he was probably close to lvl 45 at the time. The thought popped in my mind that I would collect decent gear for him that I would otherwise vendor and give it to him for free once he hit 60.

Most of us day1/day2/first week players know, decent gear is out there that most of us probably vendor/salvage cause it won't net us anything on the AH. Personally I don't find it worthwhile to have a 500k item clogging up an available auction slot, I'd rather vendor it.

Anyways if any newb (yes a real newb, not just to the class) needs help post here and I'll try to help you. I probably can only collect enough gear for 1 person as I keep multiple items for each slot and let you decide which to use/vendor/salvage/whatever with.

Of course other barbs are welcome to post below if you all would like to join in on this. Its pretty interesting (for me at least) to see the good gear that would be worth a TON during the first few weeks of this game become vendor food these days.

Those that request this help, add us in game and refer to this thread in the friend request. Also, I personally am not looking for anything in return (gold, power leveling etc) just trying to help people out.

PLEASE refer to this thread when friend requesting so we know why we are getting this request instead of thinking its possibly spam. *ALSO* Remind us if you see us online who you are and why we are friends. I have added quite a few players and I just can't keep up with all the names, and neither can the other players. Thanks!

I definately fall in the category of needing upgrades, so I can't afford to give away gear.... However in terms of helping/rushing I'm available to help newer folks. Completely for this idea, so if helping someone's progression is something this thread is for, add me to the list.

this is a fantastic idea, this is what the community is supposed to be like. my barb is at 49 and just got to A4 on NM. i got tired of playing my wiz (which is nothing special) so i rolled a barb. so far i don't think i'm going back to my wiz any time soon lol.
if anyone would be so kind as to toss some gear my way that'd be much appreciated. to this day the most gold i've had is about 130k (dont judge me monkey lol) so pretty much anything is appreciated.
in return all i can really offer is if anyone wants to start a new toon i'd be happy to power level them as far as i can
hit me up at Cronus#1354
thanks in advance!

I've been saving a few pieces here and there. I try not to overload my stash while doing runs. I think I have maybe 4 pieces in there currently to donate to someone.

Out of curiosity, how do people run out of room the their stash? I only run w/one character so maybe that's why you guys run out of room?

Unfortunately our work schedules differ too much. I'll only be able to help you on the weekends, which is fine with me.
