I'm dumbing that down incredibly but, that's the bottom line.

What can you do as an individual?

Get a new ISP? ~ I mean for some people that's not an option because of budget...Location...Etc so, what else can you do?

I don't have that answer, really...Cox and Time Warner were infuriating to deal with because it was their mentality that, you're actually guaranteed, nothing...You're promised a constant down but, in regards to up, even with a dedicated line, there's no existing guarantee in your contract...It just "helps" guarantee you a constant stream.

I, personally, think the ISP "industry" itself, needs to change and start accepting the fact that, the world needs a required up rather than waiting until it's absolutely necessary to do anything about it.

I'm coming at you from the perspective of an Admin...I've never changed my opinion on that...We really need to start guaranteeing the flow of data rather than restricting it as much as we do.

D3 is the first really mainstream product where, you'll feel this issue hit home...GW2 will be another...So on and so forth.

Every time I start to struggle I just pop over to the ah and buy some cheap op items and it feels like normal mode again.
Currently playing a barb, act 1 hell atm. Changed from a wd that I had in hell, it was really boring imo.

This works for gearing toons up to hell but that is about it. After that the gear costs so much per piece it really is not affordable for the common player.

The AH really is no different than in D2. In place of SOJ's and runes you are using gold and RMAH (when available).

dude i agree with you 100% on this.
it needs to change but i dont think it's going to happen anytime soon.
they need "motivation" to do it.........and what motivation is that?
the ability to see increased profits....aka. MONEY

the community is so small considering how big their market is.
they will NOT spend the money if they don't have to
it sucks, but it's the fact of the matter.

hopefully within 10 years or so something will happen (possibly the death of cable) that will give them the push to pursue this.
until then, :shrug:

I don't understand this argument. People are going to trade/sell gear regardless of Blizzard sanctions or not... what's wrong with making it scam free by making it official? Forcing you to drop trade on a third party forum seems pretty backward for todays technology.

Because the AH is so easy to access that their weak will power gives in to the temptation of buying items and they "destroy" their own fun? Or, they are just mad that people useing the AH are progressing along farther and faster than they are.

I for one got sick of trashing Griffon's Eyes and Windforces because I refused to take the time to use a trading form and try to bargain with a 12 year old young person for something of reasonable value.

this. it's not that you HAVE to use the auction house/trade with other players at all. IF you do choose that route, instead of searching around for what could take a considerable amount of time to find someone who has an item you might like, get into a game with them, make a trade AND hope you don't somehow get scammed.... you can visit the auction house and search for exactly what you want, a even shop a bit for the best price you can get (just hope the good one doesn't sell while you're browsing). it's also helpful cause if you're out of space, you can throw something you can't use yet into the AH for a ridiculous price and it should still be there 2 days later for you to retrieve... smile.gif

With the way the AH is so overloaded right now, I would hope that people are not using it to store their items. The AH is needed to progress unless you have people spoon feeding you gear. Drops are random, so random that the chances you get an item that you want/need for your class and build is very slim. Thus the AH is where you turn your items that are good for others into gold, then buy the ones you need.

I use 2 one-handed with life gain per hit, my dodge rating is 51% i use mantra of heal with spirit regen, primary i have fist of thunder with dodge chance, then use charm of resonance that has mantras last for 7 min and gain +2 spirit per sec (with these two things here you gain 5 spirit every second) then use your transcendence so that every point of spirit spent heals you. Then i either use exhaulted soul or one ith everything just for the obvious benefit. The key here though to somewhat kite the heavy mobs is to use tempest rush with increased movement speed. It is like a constant heal that you can stop when you dont need it and doesnt take up much spirit. Plus with your 5+ spirit regen per second, it feeds itself nicely and reminds me of the wizards arcane.
I also use sweeping wind with the 3 stack count. With all your spirit regen ability (the 5 per second plus your attack + whatever your equipment may do) you can constantly cast it when times running out and your not it combat to hold the 3 stack.
I also use cyclone strike when playing with other players to hold mobs and lastly of course breath of heaven with extra heal because hell is hard and inferno is harder...
Anyway, just my two sense if you havent tried this setup already. Hope it may have been some insight
oh and just a note to add to the credibility of this setup against uniques... i only have between 9-10k health smile.gif

Well the few problem mobs i had trouble with 1 shotted me in melee range idk fully how or why so I needed to debuff them fast I have changed my skills around a tad and if i recall properly i use.
1. Serentiy w reflect damage i think last rune
2. heal w 15damage buff for 30-45s!
3. 7 sided attack thing with rune of stun chance
4. mantra of healing w spirit regen atm i was using vitality when i was dying nonstop

L - aoe kick spirit regen crippling wave? with rune for reduce enemeies damage
R- i was using the aoe bell which was awesome but expensive to use now i use kick w rune of 50% chance to stun, i cannot believe how amazing this is esp since you can spam it with proper spirit intake

Passives i use the dex to armor one (not sure how good this really is but i know it gives a lot of value), i use spend spirit = healing one and lastly i think i took resolve for my last level of game play and it seems to def make a diff having 2 attacks that i assume stack to debuff enemy damage is pretty awesome. I used to use the one that gave +dodge with dualwielding and before that used the one you said that increases mantras and gives more spirit regen which was awesome but in heat of battle felt it not strong enuff maybe my spirit regen is better idk.

I have come across a few upgrades and my first LEGENDARY! some stupid caster item which isnt even good i plan on giving to a friend or selling on AH even though they claim they will buff the legendaries.

I dont think i have died once during lv 54-55 and halfway to 56 now i really take my time per group and have taken on some insane battles smile.gif almost done wtih act 2 now on hell and things have been looking up I ended up also switching my offhand OUT and going really good MH + shield its not the best shield but has good stats and my damage seems pretty on par with were it even was only thing im missing is that extra 15% attack speed id much rather live then die.

PS - i really wanna try using exploding palm not sure which rune i have seen many high end monks use it on youtube but i just well havent tried fitting it into my play style yet. I was using sweeping winds that aoe damage with fire rune and i loved it used it for a long long time, but it falls off easisly when runnning around and away from elite packs esp going from pact to pact in general so I went pure survival now. I def recommend you try 1h + shield when you get the chance i havent used it much since bedtime and server downtime.

Gluck all you melee out there! esp monks
