First off I played D2 and LoD for years and loved it so like many of you I was excited for D3. Unfortunately connection issues combined with a few disappointing aspects of game play forced me to return to WoW after only a few weeks of D3.
Fast-forward to a few weeks ago and I read about some amazing changes to the game and decided to try it out again. Needless to say the improvements were vast and I dove back in. I struggled to gear and begin paragon leveling a wizard under the build I read about known as the CM build.
About a week ago I discovered Mori's Twitch channel and began watching and decided to take a shot at a WD, he made it look fun and rewarding; so I leveled one.
I built up two million gold and worked up the courage to ask Mori for his help with gearing my fresh level 60. By the time he had the opportunity to help me I had managed to work up to 3.2 million gold. Discussing it with him he was willing to do the build even though he usually does 2bil+ builds for his stream.
So last night we start. He announces to his stream what he is going to do and I hand over the 3.2 million gold for him to go shopping.
What happened next blew my mind.
A member of his stream offered to donate 10 million to the build to help me out (crazycal). I was ecstatic to say the least. But this started a snowball effect; and within an hour people donated between 5 million and 500 million each as well as a huge selection of items to the build.
The build was dubbed “The Charity Build” and by the time everything was said and done we had 3.2 Billion gold to do the build.
You read that right; his viewers and the D3 community blew me away by turning my 3.2 million “ultra-budget build” into the 3.2 BILLION GOLD “Charity Build”.
Here is the video from the build, I hope it is okay that I post this link.

If the link is against rules please remove it, if it is removed its his 9/25/13 video.
It starts at about 1 hour 47 min, and the end product is showed off at about 3 hours 39 min.
Here is the final product:
I am still just shocked and amazed by how much everyone helped out.
Thank you so much to everyone who donated to make my come-back to D3 an amazingly positive experience. Thank you so much.
