2. Not even close to being godly, refuse to use RMAH, farm own gold for gold ah, mostly to upgrade gems
3. Upgrades are for alts and gf's barbarian, got her Messy's axe
4. Paragon 21
5. I generally do MP2 with friends, got some sets, legs which have been salvaged or given over.
Mostly my prob is getting attack speed to bring my dps up, weapon and source badly need replacing for better hitting power but been a very tough slog esp pre 1.04. My main remaining issue is of course itemization, particularly the class specific stuff, wands should never roll with anything but int....so stuck with what I can afford to scrounge or buy from the gold ah.
Still, considering I entered Inferno with 15k dps, by my standards progress is slowly grinding out...last few patches I've played more, the crafting helped enormously. Pretty casual...yeah.
