I'm at work so I think I butchered that relatively well... I'm currently about 5k hp and 750 or so DPS i think.
and I can't check out that link since I'm at work if you wouldn't mind giving me a run down. blizz is blocked.

I assume you can get a list of the rune bonuses somewhere:

it seems to me that if you are in the range when the attack begins, only a spell can make it miss. like the hitbox is calculated at the beginning or middle of attack, and can be interrupted, but not physically dodged....

^ the dps is with sharpshooter. I think it is over 20k without.

I just started farming Inferno Butcher since Thursday so I haven't gotten much gold yet to fund further improvements. I can go through Act I with no issue unless I get impossible mobs like invulnerable minions or get consecutive bad RNGs from Butcher. However, I think I'm being gear checked by Act 2. I keep dying in the first quest lol.

For weapon, is it really much better to go with dual 1h? I think there are some 900 dps weapons available for 450,000

well, to me (and this is just as much a question as it is a repsonse, i'm newish to DH myself, but quickly approaching l60). the main benefit of dual 1h is the 15% attack speed bonus, plus whatever stat bonuses you may get (do you get full bonus or half? like if it's each hit gives you 10 life [do you get it each time you hit, or just when THAT weapon hits?] if its every other, i would feel a good quiver that contains an attack speed bonus + more stuff coupled with a high DPS 2hander would, in most instances, be better than the dual 1handers. sorry if i'm confusing, i don't understand some of the game mechanics all the way yet.

For being so early in Nightmare, you should focus on armor/weapons for stats boosts. I wouldn't worry too much about stacking spells until you get to Act 4, which is when you need them.
What are you using for spells currently?
Unrelated question: I'm looking for the best boss in Nightmare mode that gives the quickest experience. Doesn't even have to be a boss; I'm just trying to level up. Currently I am running Azmodan (Act 3, last quest, part 3) then continuing into the first part of Act 4 with the first boss ("Iz" something). Are there any better areas to get more experience?

Yeah, once you kill Zoltun Kulle, you can just repeat that quest, teleport to his archives, enter the zone, kill him, loot, pick up the soulstone, run out, teleport, turn in the quest, leave game, change back to the same quest, repeat. It's really fast.

You don't use any spirit costing attacks?

imo it would be better to use one of the generators and then lashing tail kick with the slowing after they get kb. If things get to hairy I just use lashing tail kick and thin their numbers a bit. I am at a split between those two primaries though. Other than that I use pretty much the same thing except I need to swap out my mystic with another healing spell. seems like that would be more beneficial.

on a side note, worst thing ever about working in a cold environment, driving across town on a 30 minute lunch break, standing in line, order the delicacy of your dreams, and then pat your cheek only to realize your wallet in the shorts you were wearing when it wasn't freezing. mad.gif looks like it's oatmeal for lunch to accompany the oatmeal I had for breakfast.

As an admin, I understand their downtime...You bought a multiplayer game with the possibility of a single player adventure...Deal with it...Especially Blizzard's considering how much work is going into the back-end.
I'm not a blizzard fanboy, I'm an admin and a realist...It does help that I've actually been contracted by them and have seen their network; something you clearly haven't...But, obviously the 10-15m they've pumped into new servers over the past month, weren't enough to satisfy you...Shall I sell them my house to accommodate another 20-30 racks? Will THAT satisfy you?
The point is, they blew it initially because they're projected growth was 1/4 of what it actually was...Over the past few weeks they've been trying...Making a real effort and an expensive effort to catch up with the population...They deserve some credit for actually updating the game and keeping up with the population.
ArenaNet and T2 are going to experience the same exact issues, especially in regards to latency because... Surprise...They're all running the same base...
I don't really care what Blizzard does as long as the game is playable. They don't deserve any credit for fixing a game that should've worked to begin with. I guess you don't expect the game to work when you buy it.

If you read forums as frequently as I do, you'll see Blizzard avoiding questions like usual. Since Activision got involved the entire studio's just been going downhill.

Also, I love how you can predict the future. Nevertheless, I got a reply from Blizzard and I'm all satisfied.

How far are you into the game?

I had to switch to a full defense setup once I hit Inferno.

So any melee chars beat the brick wall at act 2? Super stuck and bored of farming Warden/Butcher (can't even really call it farming since it takes forever for me to kill anything).

haha I'm definitely talking about act 2 NM and not inferno. I have no idea what the rest of the game has in store for me, but right now I have enough survivability to increase my damage output.
