Ah, no wonder D3 inferno was beaten already. The rare mobs/champion mobs are much, much more difficult than the bosses in Inferno, and those players who beat it already completely avoided them as much as possible... rolleyes.gif

That explains much tongue.gif

I just logged into my character and I am missing 5-6 rare items in my stash, I am left with 6 gold when I had 550k and all my gear remains on my character. What just happened? I don't share my account with anyone and if I got hacked I don't see why they wouldn't take the gear off my char since it is better than the junk rares in my stash.

i think for normal you can just use dual, or any high dps weapons because it is a bit easy. im using dual weapons right at the start up until now, (act 2 nightmare) and i havent had any problems, i havent died anywhere yet. someone told me that 2 hand weps are better but ive yet to see a good weapon.

Okey so, heres the thing with weapons and barbarian in D3. When you're using a single one handed or two handed weapon, your damage is based on the DPS of that weapon plus stats. When you're dual wielding, your damage is based on the average of the DPS between both weapons + stats and the 15% attack speed bonus dual wielding gives. This means, that if you're using a 100 DPS weapon in one hand, and a 50 DPS weapon in the other, your DPS will be 75 + whatever the 15% AS bonus gives you. So in order to effectively dual wield, you need to pretty equal weapons.

What this all means is, its hard to dual wield when leveling up since you will probably find new better weapons all the time and if you only find one good weapon at a time, dual wielding will reduce that weapons DPS, making Sword n' Board and Two handed the most viable choices most of the time.

But, fortunately, Blizzard have build in an automatic DPS calculator in the character sheet, so its easy to tell which one of you weapon setups is most effective smile.gif

Wowzah. Upgrading one of my fist weapons just took my monk from ~600 to 1250 DPS. At level 46 I'm now just tearing NM Act III apart.


Had to switch to a more defensive build as well - if I hadn't taken the rune that grants + 1 armor per Dex I would be torn to shreds quickly in groups. I'm at ~45% damage reduction and just over 7k health and a group of skeleton archers still can get me down by 25%-40% in seconds.


On another note, anyone else started to get really terrible lag all of a sudden?

Exactly, as you get new weapons you just have to play with the configuration to what suites you best. For example; my Barbarian. Lvl 41 now. Have been using a 2h since 31 or so. Was around 750dps? Then I found a 1h that has higher overall stats. That 1h by itself put me over 850dps. But to try it with a lesser 1h for DW, brought it down to where the 2h was better. So I swordn boarded it till I found a equal 1h. (Both 70dps 1h btw.)

However I will say this. I know, I KNOW its random loot n stats. But I have not once gotten a Barbarian speciific drop from either bosses or elites n rares. I have a full tab full of monk, DH, Wizard gear for if I level one of them. So, since drops suck for me overall. My guy sucks right now.
I also dont get how some of you are lvl 35 with 11k HP and 1000+dps? Either this game is 90% dex/int drops for all the other classes. Because I havent seen or had crap for Str drops for my Barb. Maybe 5k HP and ~850dps. I still manage in NM Act2, but it is tough.

Anyone know a legit place I can digitally buy the game other than battle.net? I know it sounds sad, but I don't feel like paying the taxes.. Hearing about the server issues, I won't be missing much by waiting.
