what's a good affordable laptop that could handle D3?
I'm going off to college soon and want a cheap laptop that could run it
What do you guys think of this?

Or should I wait until newer tech comes out? Thanks!

Don't wait for newer tech.. Especially if you're off to college soon. There is no significant new tech coming out in the next couple months that I know of.

I think with patches and time it could be a whole lot better. Rolled a Witch Doctor intending to roll with pets and poison dots but instead use a lvl 1 ability (Dart) + level 8 rune (splinters) or spam direbats/bears like a wannabe Wizard in Inferno.

I'm now working on a Demon Hunter but certainly in no rush at all compared to when the game was first released. Blizzard needs to buff a lot of useless spells/abilities so more specs are viable in Inferno.

Honest to god I reinstalled Diablo 2 last night and made a sorc on USWest ladder. Level 12 at the moment and going Orb/Fireball. Plan to play both the Demon Hunter and Sorc casually.

I am in Act 2 farming right now. It doesn't matter who the enemies are, force armor currently prevents you from being one shotted. Here is what Force Armor currently does; any damage over 35% is reduced to just 35%. Even if I get hit by the Butcher's charge, I no longer get one shotted. It simply does 35% damage to me.

has anyone here gotten a decent set item drop? would you mind sharing where from?

I've been farming act 1 and 2 inferno and my gear is still terrible, not sure if I should stick with royal crypts jar smashing for 100K+ an hour or switch to something else to get geared up... had terrible luck doing warden/butcher runs.

Acts 3 and 4 are most commonly where the set items drop.

Quite personally, I prefer farming Act 4, except for the mages because I get rushed less but, Act 3 definitely has some decent farming potential.

Good grief man, farming act 4?!?

I can't even touch an elite pack in Act 2 atm on my Barb frown.gif

My lowest resist is like 650 too.

I gave in and glass cannon'd because, as a DH, you're getting 1 shotted regardless of your resists.

I'm at 70k DPS atm, it's a little spikey but, Dual Chakram gets the job done from a distance, quite well.

I'm not saying I don't die 20-30x in this process because I do but, that's where you'll see the most value come from farming.

Especially Act 3.

I made 500k last night in @ 1.5 hrs (Including what I sold on the AH)...I sell anything good, I get...Just lower the price to 20k or so...It flies out the door.
