hook up a bro for some clannage!!!
Don't you have chores to do?
He is now theory crafting
If you find a good spec can you post up a link here!
Will be on later tonight but work and a family dinner will be in the way
some of the better build reply on cool down reduction or resource cost reduction!
I'll start at midday, and finish by 2pm.
As the handle suggests, I’m a massive diablo fan.
D & D2 took up a large part of my youth, so I had big expectations for D3 and boy was I disappointed.
I played for a while and then the novelty wore off and I was left utterly disappointed.
After the paragon system was released it sparked a little more motivation, but I eventually lost interest.
I’m not going to ramble on about my gripes, because I’m sure that there are many pages of similar posts.
With that said though, everything I’ve read about the Xpac has made me very excited!
The release of LoD changed D2 completely, I’m hoping reaper will do the same.
What I’d give to pick my own attribute points again…….
I loved joining public games and seeing a high level character doing next to no damage because they completely ruined their character build!
Long story short, after not playing very consistently, or being very social, I was just after some advice on how to best prep for the expansion.
I currently have:
- L60 p35 Barb doing 120k damage unbuffed. Of the top of my head, could be wrong.
- L9 Demon hunter, just to get a feel of what was amazom was like in d3.
My questions to you guys:
- Should I be trying to reach p100 with my barb?
Or trying to get as many characters classes to 60?
- What runs offer the maximum exp return?
- Are solo runs or public games more beneficial?
- Are there any items I should be hording, eg gold
- I only have about $1m, should I be saving it, upgrading my crappy gear?
- IS any of the current gear worth holding onto?
Was hoping if there was anyone at a similar point we could do some runs together.
Thanks in advance and sorry about the long winded post!
PS I miss my nova/F-Orb Sorc!
Not supposed to be back up til 3pm, my bad.
Grrr decided to bring in my laptop and have the files updated. Now that the files have all been downloaded .. gotta wait for the servers to be back online.
I think most people will agree that the removal of stat choices is actually a good thing.
I doubt you're going to get to para 100 in time for the Expansion though, but it shouldn't really matter too much.
I wouldn't buy any gear now. Hopefully this patch will allow much better drops so everyone doesn't have to rely on the AH to get decent gear.
That's still the same. Most of the "people" you see in public games are just bots.
Bert or Can will answer this better but here's my thoughts at some of your Qs.
If you want to maximise your Paragon level then use your L60 characters. When the Xpac hits you will get an account wide Paragon level based on the Paragon XP of all your characters.
If you want to play max-level characters then level your other characters. With some gear you can level to 60 in a few days (few hours each day) (unless you get power-levelled like someone did and got to 60 in 4hrs).
Crypt runs are the runs of choice. Although Weeping Hollows at times seem just as good. However they need to be prepped.
More players mean more XP I believer (and better drops). Public games can be hit or miss with runs being unprepped and if you enter them before they start the run. There is a bunch of us from OCAU that run together almost nightly (kudos to Can!).
Grr was hoping to get paragon 50 tonight for the cool portrait...guess thats not going to happen
Very keen to join the OCAU guild when it's made. Hoping im able to play as im currently capped for the next few days... guess I will find out after I get home from work
If you enjoy playing him and want to get a Crusader when ROS comes out and play that through I would, espcially since both the Barb and Crusader use Str as their primary stat.
Only if you want to play other characters, if you're happy with the Barb for now just play him.
Use to be crypt/weeping/fields runs but we'll find out soon enough.
Depends how well you can kill things solo and how many low DPS players are there for exp in public. Better to play with us, the OCAU crew.
At this point you're much better off getting out there and getting new gear.
If you have 1 million gold that's not even pocket change to some of us so better off just playing with us and we'll help you out with gear etc.
Anything with a socket as the new gems will upgrade items better than the 1.08 ones. Other than that everything will be upgradable so only gear that allows you to farm and certain things like APOC (arcane power on crit).
Post your BNet tag and we'll add you when the servers go live.
So do I, don't forget static in there too.
you can get power lvlel 1-60 for like 20M in 2 hours on d2jsp
three hours and counting...still configuring update on main PC...
Ugh... will be lucky to log in tonight at this rate.
1.1 hours till clan time
You all best requesting an invite once i announcement the clan is made.
Will be called "OCAU"
Tip for all the people coming back to D3 be prepared to wait...
there's over 6gb of files(iirc patch plus data for ROS) for you to download thru bnet so it's going to take a lot longer. Servers are going to get hammered with so many people coming back and downloading the patch.
Also invite me bertie for clan...woot 2 hours to go.
Can you get this standalone from not-Bnet yet do you know? like games.on.net?
Glad I grabbed it last night
Today cannot go fast enough right now.
