Well I got the Infernal Whimsyshire staff built up last night after a few AH sales. As expected however, champion packs in there hit like a truck and are pretty much impossible at my gear levels! Back to progressing through Act 2 and the odd farm run of Act 1 for now it seems!

Only one ring on it, other is near identical. Can't just straight up stack Attack Speed, you need Crit and Crit Damage. Attack Speed will only get you so far and unless you're making a lot of use of the extra speed you are just inflating your DPS figure for the sake of it. Don't sacrifice Int to get Attack Speed.

Check out this post on the official forums. It has a spreadsheet linked that is a calculator for a Wizard. You can enter your stats and then check the Auction House for stuff. Just put your current item in the item comparison part and put the new one in and it'll tell you how much DPS you're gaining.

Yeah mine only have movement speed and 50 Int. If I could get some with crit they'd be better for sure.

Beat Diablo down pretty easily, just dodge his caging attack and the fire breath on his third and final stage, and lay the smack down.

Whilst I was running act 4 first boss last night on hell ( which everyone seems to now be doing ) the amount of level 52s I saw was mental - no wonder people are struggling if there so low down on levels and as a result gear or their area!

Still trying to beat Diablo on hell, just need to find a decent group

I ran him a few times at level 50 to get me up to 51, easy 26k exp on NM mode, 60k a time on hell isn't it?

Am I right in thinking that ~30-40K DPS without any bonus passives or buffs is what to expect at end game with roughly the best items on the market? Seen some crazy stats like 200k+, but I imagine that's with buffs and passives.

It's a shame that most legendaries are so weak.Hopefully Blizzard will buff them in the next patch.

Gear upgrades are now getting significantly more expensive. I'm at around 112k damage and trying to find upgrades that are below 2m are kinda difficult.

Legendaries will disappoint a lot of the time, but it shouldn't stop you getting excited about them dropping. My two are **** and I still can't wait for more....

I got my first ever recipe yesterday. A Exalted Sovereign Mail. Apart from being basically the worst chest recipe which bugged me slightly, I got the exact same recipe about two hours later...

Could have at least given me a better recipe the second time -.-

I have that recipe as well plus 2x helm versions. I just left them on the stash as upgrading the blacksmith to make use of them seems a waste at the moment

Anyone got advice for what im doing wrong?

I got to the end of act 3 nm playing on my own without too much hassle, but now im getting constantly raped by elite packs (heart of sin area). As soon as they are fast & vortexing with heavy hits, i die in <1s even with 13k hp (lvl 48 DH). All the other enemies go down in 1-2 hits, but the elites are harder than the act bosses IMO.

I've bought new items from AH, tried farming earlier parts of act 3 (which seem to give hardly any XP), but it's not helping me get past these areas.

Anything else I should be doing?

SS+Vault+Tactical advantage - distance is what keeps you alive.

Kungen's barb died because he stupidly alt+tabbed to change stream settings whilst in fire. His monk died because he got lag issues due to his ISP.

Kripp also had a barb which died due to lag.

I think he lost his barb through being silly - thought he stood somewhere safe after a champ pack but didn't realise he was getting damaged by desecration or swomething

Died on his monk yesterday due to a dc.

Yeah mine only have movement speed and 50 Int. If I could get some with crit they'd be better for sure.


Thanks for the help.

I suppose you have act 3-4 on farm with this gear?

Run around!

Try and draw them one by one or if not concentrate all your attacks on one of the group, once you have killed one it makes it a lot easier.

Illusionist & Arcane and Extra Health is the worst!

Anyone got a decent idea of resistances needed to progress through Act 2 inferno as barb?

I managed Act 1 with none, just stacked vit & str, sword n board. Had about 65k hp and 10k dps. Wasn't to bad....Act 2 was a diff story, i crawled my way to Magda and had to kite to kill. Gave up after that as it was clear i was undergeared.

Now im sitting on around 250 resist all (300-400 with warcry), 50k hp, 11k dps and can cruise Act 1 champs DW'ing. Just curious if I'll still get my arse handed to me in act 2 with those resists. I should really just wait until i get home to find out but heh....saves me wasting time dying tonight if anyone knows.

Act 3 on farm, Act 4 is "ok", but some mobs just make not worthwhile to do (looking at you Oppressor).

Resists for act 2 should be around 600/700+ at least with warcry. My barb is sitting at 750ish resist, 40k hp and 10k dps - still feels squishy but its doable in Act 2. Act 3 is a different story! Have rolled WD anyway as one of my mates plays a Barb now so didnt want 2 in same group!

Hi all,

Currently playing DH in act 2 hell. I am level 54 and am starting to think a bit more about my build. I use the following with a 2h bow and quiver. Traps and vault are lifesavers, I know a lot of people use smoke screen but I never know how to use it best. It doesn't seem to last long enough to make a getaway!

Fan of knives comes in handy in act 4 and when surrounded by enemies and multishot is always good for clearing groups.

Can you let me know where your builds differ and why? I have never used a turret or companion so not sure to include them and have stuck with entangling shot since normal!

Also, is there any reason to change my passive skills?
