I think what he is trying to say, although he did not word it properly. That you do not have to use a CM build in order to have fun. He is right because I cleared inferno with my Wizard with the current build that you see. You will not see CM or Archon in it.
Oh I understand. This game isn't just about clearing inferno though. Hell I cleared inferno with no CM use at all. Just hydra, blizzard, and piercing orb works fine. But in order to get any build to be useful at all it takes gear, good gear. My point was to find said good gear in game without having to fish the AH for hours trying to find something you can afford, or hope for a lucky drop that only comes when the planets align just at the right moment to shift the RNG in your favor lol. I don't need to find 100 rares and hour and a few Legs here and there and them all be worthless. I'd rather have 10 rares all together and maybe 1 legendary and be worth the hunt. They don't have to be the best gear in the world but something to be exited about though. Ya know?
Forgot what pieces they are but most of that gear was bought with a small budget of around 600k. Now if I decided to work on it a couple of days and I really knew the real cost of all of that gear. I might have been able to do it with a budget of around 400-500k instead. That is something that is easy to do just playing the game and salvaging the gear you pick up into crafting mats and selling the crafting mats. When I learn how to use the gold auction house to the fullest while still playing the game. Then I will be able to easily afford even more expensive gear.
