You can pretty much get anything on a legendary or set item. The problem other than drops is you can't search for those affixes on certain items in the AH...so stupid.

Yeah it's frustrating to not be able to search for legendary/set special affixes that don't usually come on that piece.

yes it is. I have had to use many tricks to gear up my Spirit regen monk. But its not so bad now that you can sort by attribute. You just have to pull from all vs limiting it to specific gear type.

Just wish I would have bought an old stone of Jordan with spirit regen back when they were only 10 million. Now you'd be lucky to find one at 50 with crap stats.

My damage sucks compared to many of you guys here. I'm happy to have reach 63k unbuffed on my monk with 40% crit, 381% crit dam, and 593 resist all. I was at 40k last week with 33% crit, 337% crit dam, and like 420 resist all.

It only cost me 36 million to upgrade to where I am at now. Had it not been for a lucky legendary drop that I sold, I'd still be at the same damage as last week.

Not spending hundreds upon hundreds of hours and/or dollars on the game is probably the only thing you're doing "wrong." Actually feeling pretty good about my 80k DPS wiz for the time I've put in.

It's okay. You probably have twice the armor rating that I have without even trying.

Same here. I guess what's holding me back are some good weapons. Was that Barb rocking a skorn?

It's prett easy to break 100k on my wizard. I'll probably shoot for 150-200k long term as the market equalizes with drop rates. The hard part is survivalibility. That warrior has like 50k hp and 700 ra, which is just amazing considering how powerful his hits are.

I spent only a day on d3 since the patch hit. I'm still consumed by xcom and bl2. From what I remember gold was dropping like crazy, so item prices might stay where they are. Drop rates increase = ah prices drop. Gold drop rate increases = ah prices go up.

Beyond weapons, bigges ups are the trifecta trinkets: IAS, crit, critdmg, especially with the new upper bounds on crit and critdmg for trinkets. If you can get min/max dmg, main stat, and socket, even better. Legendaries that add modifiers on slots that don't normally contain them adds up too. For example, witching hour belt is IAS and critdmg, neither can usually be found on the belt. Another is Mepho of twilight helmet which now comes with 170-200 main stat and IAS, if you can find one with a high crit chance, more main stat, and a good ability modifier, you'll be golden.

Don't think Mempo can spawn with crit AND an ability modifier. But yea, Mempo + crit mod is end game hat for many classes.

Off topic. mempo is what you call the masks that samurai warriors wore.

Interesting, didn't know it had that restriction. Is that specific to that legendary? I have a rare helm with 6 crit and I think 10 electrocute.

My HC barb is now paragon 73 with 103k dps. Number one dps barb in the world by a longshot. Probably going to take a long break from the game. There aren't really any upgrades available for my character except a slot or two where I could get marginal gains, ie crit on my mempo, %life on my vile ward, and more stats on my pants. There just aren't many items available in HC right now.

That's damn impressive man, grats on that. Getting those stats in SC would be impressive enough for me, but in HC? Amazing.

Yea, it's a restriction for Mempo. It's because Mempo only has one random magic modifier, excluding the stat roll. Crit is one modifier, so that takes up the slot.

This is the hell fire ring i just got. It is the second best that I have seen -- it would need crit chance to be fucking awesome.

That being said the raw damage boost and attack speed TOGETHER is the first I have seen. ------------------------->> EDIT : Does anyone know what the crit damage of the Hellfire Ring is based on ? My crit? Random number? Base number for everyone? Most of my high damage skills (loaded for bear) crit for over 800k-900k damage, does hellring crit off of that skill or my crit damage if at all?

Had Ice Climbers drop from a white mob my partner killed, lol. Wizard-spec (200 int) but it was nice to see them drop! Only other legendary today so far was Zunimissa's Vision, low roll.

I finally got something tonight... 1h xbow, calamity... 1350 dps one handed, 98 dex, 11 attack speed, and 66% crit dmg... Also has str on it, but that is forgivable since the dps is in the top 5%, and it has dex and max roll ias.

Wish for a socket, but then if have to sell it for 2 billion gold lol

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand, just a few hours later:

This game is sooooooooooooooooooooo much more fun when good stuff is dropping.


Wow, that is an amazing drop. Yeah, the game feels definitely more fun now. I now get at least 1 legendary every day, many are not that good but at least you have the feeling that you have a chance to get something good.


This one dropped for me earlier, not as good as your source but a nice upgrade for my Wizard.

I am loving my monk more and more everyday......I just might start putting money into this vs my wizard.

I can farm so damn fast with my build, and at only 55k DPS I can cit for a million with my bell and with 15 spirit regen I can bell and tempest rush pretty much non stop. So damn fun its putting the wizard on the back burner.... despite him being capable of 200k dps. I out pace the world wind sprint barb.

Yeah, a friend of a friend is a monk and he just runs full speed destroying crap. The 2 most dominant players I've ever personally played with (pubbed), prior to MP, were a monk and a WD actually.

Biggest problem with the WD is the speed they are pretty much the slowest class. So they just can't keep up with the Turbo monk or Sprit barb. Demon hunter could probably keep up but not a wizard or WD.

I wish the Wizards teleport was like D2's and actually useful then I wouldn't need a turbo monk.

Hey fellow D3 wizards - does anyone care to comment on my gearing and the direction that I might take it? I have about 10 million gold that I could use on a solid upgrade.

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/yetieater-1368/hero/20948411


Your rare ring could boost your dps for cheap. Trifecta IAS,crit, crit damage if you can. Upper bounds of crit and crit dmg on rings has gone up, so the price of good upgrades should be trending down.

After that the witching hour belt is an amazing upgrade as stevedave mentioned. It's a bit pricey, but it will be a good upgrade after your ring.

I don't think so. A propperly equiped grave injustice WD can do some serious damage. Those bears mow mobs down quick. And you can spirit walk endlessly so long as you run into mobs to mow down. grave injustice reduces your cooldowns. It's similar to CM, but rely on kills instead of crits. So, it's slower than CM to get your cool downs going, but I feel my WD can do much more damage than alot of Barbs and Wiz's with the same dps as me. WD is the sleeper class. So many ways to play this class.

If only I could shoot and move while in archon mode

Left click = move
Left click on enemy = move and melee slam
Shift left click= stop if moving and melee slam

Right click = beam in direction and continue moving to last left click location.
Right click on enemy= beam at enemy and continue to move to last left click location
Shift right click = stop moving and beam in direction.

Left plus right click = move and beam in that direction constantly.

This would be so much fun defensively (undisputed best kiting ability) and steam rolling (never stoping if you can keep kill speed up). I'd pay good money if they implemented this. They wouldn't, but one can dream.

Its not the damage I'm talking about, sure that's nice, but its the speed that I'm talking about.

This guy kind of pulls it off but his spirit regen is too low and he messes around too much.....If I wasn't so lazy I'd make a video of just how fast it goes.

This would be the best thing ever. I mean the best.

If they didn't do this at least some movement speed while in Akon mode would be nice.
