Diablo® III

what's your cm/ww-sns LOH?

@picha: Naw he has way too much super OP stuff and Shand and I are still waiting for a dagger like that to drop. I just needed certain gear to allow me to play the way I like... just so happens those tend to cost a pretty penny assuming you could even convince the person to let it go. Aph and Addicted have been right beside the past month as I did my research and identified items, and sold everything and the kitchen sink in order to be in a position to beg, plead and cajole to trade for the required. Frostburn probably has it much easier, anyone with an OP item probably goes to him to get the best price.

@kiza: I used to run a Nat's set including a 6 CC Tri Nat's ring and it was very smooth. No real issues apart from wanting high Vit which is usually the Nat's set sore point for me. But I wanted to push dps and IAS to max which meant I had to abandon the set for more dps and eHP. At 57CC, freezing has been smooth enough; I can't tell if 70CC with 3.01 aps is better though. It will take alot of actuarial-like testing (certainly more than I am capable of!) to conclude if the WW ticks at higher aps compensates for the lower CC.

Others may have a different personal view but mine on CM is to push to Razor Thin margins. If you have no issues with RD, can tank better than an M1A2 Abrams, then there is probably some room for you to give up something (AR, Armor, CC, LOH etc) to gain something elsewhere (DPS, APS, eHP etc). Of course the intricacies of finding what you want and affording it will invariably cause you to want to bang your head off a concrete wall because even if theory works, it may not simulate in game experiences due to some minor stat change or something else you didn't consider. You don't want to know my repair costs... ^^

That's why CM is so frustrating and rewarding and is constantly evolving... at least until I get to paragon 100 (eg, I suspect I may have issues if I get the additional 63 int when reaching 100.) At the same time, CM can be certainly simple and fun for the casual gamer. It's all depends on whether you want to push the boundaries and what you want to achieve out of this build.

Start to think about pvp for what it's worth... or nickpick over the fact that I saw a 851 Inna's on RMAH yesterday but it had 8 IAS so am waiting for a 9 IAS one to drop lol.

Or start rolling a WD.

to be honestly blunt here i never liked pvp and never bothered with it even in the d2 days. i'm really focused on loots loots loots. oh also helping players out.

i did went back to my monk and kept laughing when im playing her (no innuendo) due to shenlongs and being reminded of the phrase 'general beat down'.

Well to be honest the new crafting items give you something to work on. Yes you could take thousands of crafts but the Amulet and Gloves can be hands down BIS.

Yeah I never liked pvp as well. With 2 hours of playing time a day, I prefer doing a carry game to end the day on a nice note. But I thought of giving it a try in future. I can just imagine people laughing over my dead toon lol. But it's all good, afterall this is a game or as my daughter says "Mom, dad is playing the monster game AGAIN...".

I'm also waiting for the new Crafts, I think it's awesome, and if you play all classes, the new Craft system is even more beneficial. As much as I like to Craft for my Wiz, I have to admit Amulet is the only viable slot that has a somewhat high chance for upgrade. But for other characters, the new crafts can save a tons of Gold lol. And 10x more fun than AH 3.

971 not enough to play way I'm accustomed to. DPS does u no favors IMO. I bought some gloves that bumped me 10K recently and burned myself down. Sold them same day.

Ratio u need to stand in any affix and spam @ 90% mitigation is 6.5 loh for 1000 DPS. As u can see about 161K is my max...

There are way around it. Like 3.0. Like way better CC. Like even more mitigation. Like kiting like girl.

It does if you want to farm MP10 as Kiza already stated above. Now that EXP gain is so huge I doubt I'll drop to a lower MP ever again. Plus the higher Demonic essence drop rate, plus the item increase drop rate, plus the higher MP MF.

I farm mp10. All my videos are mp10. Anyway I meant in general sense if you don't increase ias/cc/loh/ and or mitgation to go with it. You can kite like a girl but fuk that. I'll take 100K dps b4 i do that. I play CM to not kite.
