Diablo® III

Ultra Budget CM/WW Guide [WEEKLY GIVE AWAYS]

One thing I would like Blizzard to change is no quest skipping... at least then everyone would have do the Belial quest... even more so for CM/WW wizards because you can't freeze his third form at all. Sure you can still get carried, but that's obviously not the point.

You could just do Belial on MP0 then with CM just to get the quest done easily :P.

Btw, like my new setup MrDuMa? Looks like the late night shenanigans paid off :)

I got bored and put together something for under 1 million.

That is the link to the gear right there.

Here are the core stats at paragon 0:
2.755 APS
49.5 crit
856 LoH
4k Armor
411 AR
28k HP

I would say this set can do MP4-MP5 with SNS. It's a little soft, but it can work.

MrDuMa, if you want, you can add this set to your giveaways.

Haven't seen the changes yet, but like many people, yourself included, I like looking at HyoriLee.

lol Jaetch's Mempo. Hmm... I'm wondering... what's your old amulet? It'd definitely have IAS on it... I think you'd be better off using the trifecta amulet and switching out your Tal chest for a Zuni chest... 200Vit+ and armor. Always has 70AR+ and an Int roll.. would that set up give you more DPS/EHP than your current set up?

As soon as I can confirm Amos' set, I might have three give away sets next week! I could space them apart a bit and give away just one at a time... that could give us more time to build more sets... but then again, it's really only taking me a couple of days to build these anyway.

Here is my set as it would appear on a plvl 0 Wizard.

http://d3up.com/b/1036177/budget

also i have the skill recomendation for the set there as well, because it's a relativelly low dps build it relys on edp not sheet, so when your runnning fully buffed as you should be with constant frozen adn meteor fire procs in your damage bubble you can see just shy of 80k dps.

2.31aps
67cc (biffed) 52 unbiffed (lol)
3.7k armor
547 ar
(83.16 mit all up)
226k ehp
1067 loh
80kdps biffed (49k unbiffed)

final price was 2.6mill (tal set kinda killed it lol)

feels about mp6/7 capable and you will be at home flying through mp5 any day of the week

The old ammy had attack speed and crit chance, but no crit damage at all, so upgrading to the mempo let me use my highest DPS ammy that I have crafted. I have no other gear atm where I could do better then my current setup, but if I ever roll that GG trifecta ammy, I probably will make the switch over to a zuni's chest for the added EHP. I'm currently at 88.25% MIT with 388k EHP, so pretty decent.

Also, that 787k gold set is pretty boss for that price, haha. Trying to gear for 2.73 at around 1 million gold really loses a lot of MIT and EHP, I think 2.51 is probably the best breakpoint to shoot for at this budget.

Yeah... not having to rely on Tal's chest saves you a bit... but I had to use Inna's pants which was one the most expensive thing to purchase for me at 105k. I think the amulet was the most expensive item at 112k.. BT chest was 20k, gloves at 70k, WH 50k, Nat's ring at 9k (lololol).. I think they were the stand out buys.

2.51 is definitely easier to gear for.. it's about 200k EHP.

RE your gear set.. I'm at 86.28% mit with 282k EHP... soo much less than you (running meteor). Just keep crafting.. you'll get one eventually. As soon as I craft a decent pair of Vit gloves, I should be in a much better position. My best two so far are 204Vit with low trifecta (6IAS/8.5CC/40CD) and 300Vit, 100ish Dex/Int, 34AR, bifecta 8.5CC/28CD... this will be as painful as rolling amulets :s

Amos
I can use AH pretty well to build pretty solid ultra low budget sets.. but I'm still pretty bad at flipping items :(

With your set, this is three very solid sets for give away! I'll update the opening post tonight and open up entries for the next give away.

Just a question for the both of you... would you prefer three sets to give away all at the same time or do it once a week? I'm not fussed really, but I would like more inventory space :p

Hmm... your gear set up is already better I think.. getting our sets would actually make you worse? lol?

well depending ont he interest we can do all 3 but if there aren't many viable takers maybe we should just spread them out - i have inventory space to hold on to gears if people want to keep makign adn shifting sets, since i wont' be using inventory much anymore, just casual gameing no serious upgradign and flipping.

if we have decent interest i think all 3 if there are only a few people... i dunno maybe all 3 as well so better chance of more winners, afterall it take a couple days to build a set anyway.

so basically i'm undecided lol but i have room to store gear for week by week give aways. That way we might be gettting more new players in as there will always be somethign going on give away

At the moment, no one really knows about this thread/give away other than Wizards... I was thinking about posting this in the Aus/NZ forums (since we're Strayans) and maybe the General Forums (not sure I wanna touch on that cesspool just yet..).

I'm good either way really.

mm might want to extend the time so more people can get a chance in say maybe 2 weeks with bumps for righteousness.

Thanks for your entries.

Are you's going to pick at random or do you want people to ask for which set they want?

I'm fine with you choosing the winners, and they can choose which set they want. I'll keep an eye out for the winners in this thread.
