Jul 15, 2012 Inferno Act II Help Please Ok so I only play with the Monk, I have had a lot of fun playing with this character and have no plans on ever creating a different class I just really enjoy the play style. With that said I have had no trouble clearing all of Hell and Act I of Inferno but am getting wrecked by most Act II elites. If anyone can give me advise on what I should change or upgrade it would be awesome, thank you in advance. By the way I use Sword and Board.. Also I am not a fan of LOH mainly because of the cost of items... I have geared this Monk for a little less then 1M total after scouring the AH for hours on end. Stats unbuffed with buffed in parentheses: Dex - 1495 Armor - 6682 DPS - 21,231 (34,883) APS - 1.43 CC - 38.5% CH - 162% Dodge - 35% BC - 15% Resists - 756 (905) HP - 30,046 LOH - 0 Dmg R - 69.01% Skills: FOT - Thunderclap Sweeping Wind - Cyclone BoH - Blazing Wrath Serenity - Ascension Mantra of Healing - Time of Need Blinding Flash - Faith in the Light Passives: Transcendence Seize the Initiative One with EverythingBronx7 Jul 15, 2012

Jul 15, 2012 How to fight Molten or Plagued elites? I'm referring to Act 3 Inferno Elites. Act 1 and 2 are fine. Can someone give tips on this OTHER than don't stand in it? That's obvious, but there are several times when a mob will drop it at your feet and your HP instantly begins to decrease. There is no other affix in the game I find more annoying than this. It feels like its bugged.Nazox4 Jul 15, 2012

Jul 15, 2012 Which primary skill to use I have seen a lot of people saying FoT or hundred punches... I personally like crippling wave because it hits multiple targets and gives enemies hit a reduction of damage. What are the advantages of the other skills? Seems like the majority of the time you are surrounded by mobs so hitting multiple enemies would be best, but I guess it could do less damage per hit?Redcrypt4 Jul 15, 2012
Jul 15, 2012 Question on dual wield Does the dps from your off hand weapon matter ? Does it's attack speed matter ? I read somewhere that you only get an attack speed increase of 15% no matter what stats your OH weapon has and that only the damage from your main weapon matters. Which is true ? Searching the internet I found a lot of different reports and ideas but no one seems sure of anything.Kesarion10 Jul 15, 2012

Jul 15, 2012 Belial Inferno Help So, I've made it to Belial Inferno. I know I'm way behind the curve from most players, but I'm looking for help from someone who's been here done that... I make it through the first 2 phases, and do pretty well until I get his last phase down to about 10% health, then he shoves his fists into the ground and does the green popcorn explosions indefinitely.... Is this the way it has always been? I cannot fight him, cannot do any damage if I am running the entire time.... Plus... when he goes into this indefinite move, the explosions are so quick together, it's very difficult to suvive... Am I just not killing him fast enough? Or after I dodge it for so long will he finally go back to doing his regular fist attacks and such?Stormcrow5 Jul 15, 2012
Jul 15, 2012 Daibo Monk - Hell Act I I started the game with a specific goal, I wanted to play a Daibo monk. All the information I read states this is a bad decision, but I still wanted to play this style. I have only been playing for just over 2 weeks - total playtime is about 25 hours +/- a few. I am now entering into Hell Act I. My character stats are not great, but I pretty much facerolled everything through nightmare easily. I use the AH on occasion to get some gear upgrades, but have not really ever found anything *Great* that I could afford. This is my current build:!YXU!ZabYbZ My stats are sitting at: Level 52 - Str: 200ish Dex: 1000ish Int: 550ish Vit: 700ish Damage is 3100 without any buffs I use Life Regen + LPSS. I have almost 0 LPH/LS and I only have a total of about 10% IAS. I am at 14% crit rate with +130% crit damage. Things to note: Basic Damage - My crits are topping out around 7k to 9k right now. SSS/SA with both BoH/BW and Mantra running - absolutely amazing damage with a Daibo. MA/AA with a Daibo is also a very nice damage add. CW/Con + IS/CoP + Mantra + Passives - I rarely ever died before Act IV nightmare. I have almost no resist and my armor is not great either. I am working on gearing up, but until I hit level 51 I had a hard time finding gear with resist + decent stats, and could not find any resist all gear. I have never spend more than 70k on any item, and the one time I spent 70K it was for the Daibo I am currently using. The build works very well, I have run into a few problems in Hell Act I - like Molten, Jailer, Chains elite pack of the little dog things, no way to outrun them to kite and it was nothing for them to kill me. I ended up having to drop my pet and add Serenity to take them down. So far playing this has been a blast - will update when I start infernoBaellor2 Jul 15, 2012

What am I doing wrong... here`s my build also :!ZXU!accabY I am not trying to facetank evertyhing, but there are some elites in a3 which simply hit me for 30k. Add a "fast" affix on those elites and there is no way in hell for me to kill them. This was just an example, there are many other elites there is simply no way for me to kill. How do you guys do it?

Jul 15, 2012 Monk Tank (Dodge) - Act 3 Inferno Video Guide In addition to the guide portion, I also spend a lot of time talking about the state of the game / what I feel its problems are. Hopefully that's enjoyable to most of you, if not / you don't like the complaints, sorry :) So that's my Monk Dodge Tank build, the guide explains how to solo farm Act 3 Inferno with 5 stacks of Nephelem Valor and kill Cydaea and Azmodan. Here's the build I'm using:!UYX!ZZZbca Use the fastest attack speed weapon you can find (no less than 1.4 ideally) and get a piece or two of armor with Increased Attack Speed (the more the better!). Keep Sweeping Wind up on large packs / elite packs, combined with Backlash damage this spec can actually kill things fairly quickly while being a defensive tank build. In multi-player games, where you are solely a tank, swap Sweeping Wind for Breath of Heaven for extra survivability and healing or Cyclone Strike of extra control.Zerabitu0 Jul 15, 2012

Add: bertrandwins#6636 in game. Bidding closes, 15 July 0300H. Starting bid is 35m, B/O 300M. If there aren't any offers that I like, will probably sell it on GAH. Also, I will require that the buyer have proof that they are a trusted one. I have little faith in the in-game trading system. If the highest bidder has no proven trade, I will either offer it to the next bidder with a proven trade or put it on the AH at the agreed selling price. I'd rather lose 15% on the deal than use the crappy in-game trading system. On a final note, please post in this thread if you want to bid. Sorry for any inconvenience caused, but given all these scams and how poor in-game trading is, I need some due diligence.bertrandwins8 Jul 15, 2012

Jul 15, 2012 Thinking about streaming. Hi, I have been farming act 3 and 4 way before patch 1.03 and now farm 3~5 runs everyday. My friends suggest me that i should stream because of how fast i can clear things and that i am pretty successful at building my monk. Im focusing on hybrid, maximizing my dps while being tanky. Currently have 70k dps unbuffed, 7k armor and 700 all resist, act 3 has never been easier. I felt really bored farming solo and with 2~3 friends so i was wondering what is the requirement to stream? I am totally new to this, i Just want to share my monk experience with everyone and maybe help ppl out with their gears do some viewer runs and free items giveaways etc. I spend 0 money on this game and have gained more than $500 usd already in profit. is the place to go if i want to stream?Nyanevo3 Jul 15, 2012
