last night i found a 1300dps 90crit 2socket manticore, i threw it up on the AH for 2billion and someone bought it 10 minutes later. I now have 1.7billion(after AH cut) to upgrade my barb. My question is, should i buy 1 or 2 of the godliest IK gear(so they will always be worth a ton) or a whole new set for my barb?

opinions?
go best in slot.

spend say 1.5 on like 2 best in slot pieces.
then spend 200M on a few solid 25M upgrades for all your other pieces
U should help me to upgrade something of my gear hahaha :D. I hope someday i got lucky like u to find anything that can be sell for a lot.
Stay away from rare rings and ammys since they will get a buff in 1.05, otherwise go crazy, IK set is awesome and I love the set bonus, because you don't lose fury anymore it completely frees up a skill slot that you were using in your build for a fury generator like bash. This is my 1.05 build, tested on monster power 10:

I can kill elites on monster power 10 in less then 1 minute for most cases, and that's mainly because I am consistently dropping overpower and revenge crits on the enemies while also doing whirlwind and sprint.

Also, the best gold I ever spent was on a cold damage, high elite damage stone of jordan....hands down, worth every single gold, and it will still be a good ring after the patch.

Congrats on your godly find, I hope your barb turns out how you want him to.
I am green with envy and red with rage.
Seems like everyone is buying SoJ these days.

Who said D3 was not like D2?
if my math is correct at the exchange rate of $.6 (lower limit guess) for 1 million gold, you just banked over $1,000 worth of gold. (1.7BN gold * .6)/1MM= $1020 roughly.

After 15% transaction fee = $867
After 15% PayPal fee= $736.95 NET!!!!!!!!

Best advice is to wait for gold to rise a little then CASH OUT!

*edit fees
Cash out and go buy some more of that Killa Kush
IMO i would only go 3set IK and get 12MS Ice climbers and Trifecta/str/AR gloves. Fury gen doesnt look to be a problem in PTR but mitigation is very important even for mid MP levels. Getting good AR on these 5slots will go a long way in setting a good foundation for your AR while not sacrificing on the utility of the IAS you may not get on IK gloves.
i'm with jerQQy, cash it out!!

congrats on the find!
thank you all for the input! even though im very tempted to sell the gold for real money, im just gonna pimp out my barb haha, gonna be interesting shopping for gear tonight after work
i'd sell that !@#$ for real money
Five pices of the Immortal King's set, Lacuni Prowlers and a Vile Ward. Upgrade the weapons.

This.
Congrats^^ Go buy best in slot pieces they wont devalue. Other pieces will. And wait till shortly after new patch because they just doubled the drop rate for legendaries and set items.
Curious, what other stats did your Manticore have?

I found one at 1kdps, but it had like freakin 200Str, 200int, and some WD ability. I figure it wouldn't be worth much, but just curious if the stats made any huge difference?
If you dont cash out i would say get a BIS IK chest and either IK gloves or helm. You sir will be murdering.
Cash out.. or buy 5 good ik pieces and at least 1 badass weapon... like a 900 dps bk warr blood with 90% cd and 6% elite dmg.

I personaly would cash out 70% of it and keep a lil play money for in game. Dude... basically a couple zips of kush dropped ingame for you... how often does that happen lol.. does that put a real value on it now?:P

Cheers!
sell gold after patch when its in slightly higher demand and cash out...and if you wanna keep playing just upgrade your gear with 200m
