post #7451 of 30159
For those of you who are barbs or monks and are the tanky route i assume thats the only way. What items are ideal to waste all your money on or is there really no set group of items to shoot for. By items i mean

as examples

1. two awesome rings or a set
2. weapons of coures speed + life on hit would sure be nice at 1k+ and affordable lol
3. random piece of armor, (start helm down idk)

4. any other stat order priority? is there one slot known as being cheaper or easier to gear then another? I cannot seem to find gear with

dex, fire, all resists and the missing stat seems to be VITALITY or + life.... as a monk

This game is absolute trash, and I wanted soooooo hard for it to be awesome, but at this point, if there was an award for worst game of the year, this would take the cake. Ive had the game less then a month and there is just no reason to play anymore.

Wow that's a horrible exploit

Well, now I think about it it's really not too bad since 1.03 patch is giving an option to cancel

1. Change Blinding Flash to Inner Sanctuary with Safe Haven or Circle of Protection.
2. Again, change Blinding Flash to Deadly Reach with Keen Eye.
The idea behind 1 is to set up a healing area that enemies can't touch. Safe Haven will give you 7750+ life in 5 seconds, while Circle of Protection works very well with Deadly Reach's Keen Eye. Seize the Initiative + Keen Eye + Circle of Protection is excellent for damage mitigation.
Number 2 is one of my "essential" abilities. I pair that and Way of the Hundred Fists with Blazing Fists. Most of my armor/weapons have a critical hit bonus, so I can get up to 15% attack speed fairly quickly. Add on Sweeping Wind with Inner Storm and I have almost unlimited healing.
My current skill set: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/monk#UbXgiQ!YXU!ZZZaYb
Also, most of my ideas branch off of this. You might not do a ridiculous amount of damage, but you'll stay alive for a lot longer: http://www.diablofans.com/topic/45353-the-paladin-an-inferno-tanking-build/


1. I have never even tried the Inner Sanctuary ability i might have to try it one day but that doesnt seem to do anything agaisnt ranged does it?
2. I use deadly reach a lot, swap it out as my main attack i have tried 2 spirit generators as well but once i started using blinding flash (only last few days ever) i totally feel in love wtih it saves ur tush more often then you can count and every 15s yes!

- have to look into this inner sant thing, and i have no + crit gear at all... if you do then you must be fully geared because i havent really seen any im still at +5 base.


my main problem is survival atm it seems not going toe to toe with someone (which is sorta what you seem to ahve only commented on) thats not to say i survive toe to toe its just something i do not fear as much as those horrible ranged dba gs that just have heat seeking missiles it seems and they dont stop till you run off the visible map

Belial is rustling my jimmies. I seriously cannot kill that boss, haven't gotten to phase 3 yet (Inferno, of course). I think my damage is too low... only do like 21k without Magic Weapon, and even with it it's only ~28k. The snakes just "nope" and kill me really fast unless I use teleport / diamond skin and mirror images.

I think its great that inferno really is as hard as Blizzard was telling us. Makes it that more special to have beaten it.

Hot fixes June 8
General

In cooperative games, monster damage will no longer increase when additional players join the game. Please note that monster health will still scale based on the number of players in a party

Bug Fixes

Tyrael no longer has collision when he is your active follower
Pots of ashes in Act I and vases in Act IV will now drop less gold when destroyed
Fixed a bug where players could turn in the same quest repeatedly and always receive rewards as though they were completing the quest for the first time

----

there goes my ash smashing runs frown.gif

When things like this are considered an "exploit" it makes you really wonder why hacking is so rampant with this game. I was very very reasonable about my feelings with this game after being so incredibly let down from what I was expecting after playing the beta. Between the absolutely horrible launch that prevented people from playing the game for days, to the horrible item system, to the horribly unbalanced characters, to the terrible storyline, and the ass backwards monster/boss difficulty's where bosses were actually easier then magical mobs. I put all of that aside and continued to play and didn't really complain. However everything that has happened since release, and blizzards statements regarding the issues, have all pointed to this game being nothing more then a gigantic money laundering scam centered around the real money auction house. They have nerfed every aspect of this game that has to do with the one thing this game is built upon, and that's farming gear. There is just no reason to play it anymore. When we played D2 we played for countless hours trying to get the best gear available, all for the singular purpose of PVP. There's no PVP in this game, there's no "high end gear", there's no farming, there's no showing off to other people or friends, there's no fun associated with this game. Its a gigantic store with no end game. 1.03 is going to be absolutely horrible, I want to play...A MONK, my monk dies every 3 seconds in inferno, i have over 12k DPS with two 700dps weapons, and over 1100 dex and 700vit, i have 600 resists across the board, thats a 65% reduction in damage, and what does blizzard do? Your not paying enough in repair costs, so were going to raise it...drastically, and at the same time, we are going to nerf the amount of gold you can farm. There's no point anymore, Im looking at guildwars 2 already. I knew blizzard/activision were bad news, I didn't realize how BAD, but I knew WoW was going down the drain when I saw the last patch releasing attack of the panda's. rolleyes.gif
