Diablo® III

Starter gear list not so... cheap!

Hello all,

I decided to roll new characters to US servers (EU player here) because of the unbearable state of EU auction house. My barb just dinged 60 (thought making a barb is a good clean start for farming/gearing etc) and I was playing WD at EU.

From the moment I dinged I went at once to find a budget guide. I ended up reading Eclipse's starter barbs guide. Well... it is not THAT low budget at least from the current state of AH. It is not Europe but still the pieces he suggests cost many millions. As we speak I have found 2 pieces really low price bid that needs 12 minutes to expire, I am outbid and I wait for <1 minute to reach in order to try and get these.

So my only option now is go to inferno mode and try farming gold?

Moved response here:

Hello Nephalem Rayaleith,

Here is a Under 1 Million Budget build. That averages ~75,000 gold for each item. The one listed on this post is DW WW that hits 2.23/2.5 BP.

I just finished a HotA SnB set but I need to pull pictures and make post before I can hand it off. I haven't tested it, either.

Before I even read it, thanks in advance!

2H build with the weapon I use is out of the question?


2H are viable, too, but gear differently. I haven't done a 1 Mil 2H budget set, yet... so I don't have a direct model to link. Hopefully, I can build one after I finish all SnB HotA stuff.

edit: a little punctuation goes a long way :P

..unbearable state of EU auction house..

May I ask what's wrong with the EU AH (different from US)?
I was about start a character there...
US AH is as bad as it can be...

When in doubt, blame the French...

I found that the attack speed and crit chance requirements to permawrath with a 2h are too difficult to reach on <5m budgets. I would stick to dual wield or shield.

EU auction house is extremely expensive. You can check it with your level 1 character :)

About 2H. I asked because I found it really cheap and its stats seems decent. Ok I will try to sell it.

About the shield idea... Do you feel it might be ok for a low budget build? Comparing to dual wield I mean.

So this is my 1 mil SnB HotA

I'll admit, PermaWrath is hard... I tested on MP3 and I tend to drop it like ~10-15 secs before cooldown... I'm not very knowledgeable in the SnB gearing so kinda followed general gearing guidelines.

More to come later.

IMO, for Standard WW, DW is king, especially on a budget.

Yes we do. We may have different definition for expensive :) Comparing though and fot items that are not (or should not) be in the 2bil range, you will see that it hurts. And I wanted to resist the temptation to use RMAH. In US I cannot use it anyway.

Thanks once more. I see your list has some pieces with weird prices. The OH for instance. I could see only one piece with your specs and near the price you say (bid with no buyout and it is 818K dps Spear...).

Found a very nice amulet like your specs with even a socket that had 2.6K bid only and 2 minutes before expiring someone bid for 530K.

Anyway, patience...
