I've been just starting the sword of the stranger quest and going to cemetery, clearing all crypts, head to fields of misery, clear it, repeat. Got tons of decent rares,3-4 rings, 900 something DPS 2 hand xbow with dex and +40% weapon damage, 200 ishmin and max damage stats too in maybe 2 hours and close to 200k after repairs. I ran some A2 with 5 stacks of nephalem valor to compare and the only decent thing I got was a gem recipe. To be fair it did sell for close to 1 mil.

Well, I had realized I installed it on my SSD, and not a HDD. I just moved the folder to the HDD, and remade the link to the launcher. Been working fine.

So, in theory, you should be able to do the same. smile.gif

Also, don't tank him... this may have been said before because I see 200+ new posts, but for those who may not know... his life is the spirits that chase you or whatever. Hitting him does no good. If you need to, just kite and kill the spirits. Use your defensive skills.

really:?> i always just destroyed his adds as i ran in circles and then whacked boss to death when i could before i was surrounded to be dangerous.


FYI best ability this fight are 2-3 things

1. sweeping winds
2. mantra dodge = dodges proc aoe damage
3. aoe kick... more AOE and more space and time to move around sweeping armarda or something

Now I have 29k and get 2 shot most times instead of 1 shot. I don't have much resist though, so most magic still 1 shots me, but seriously the nerf to AIS would have been fine on its own, I think they just had poor timing with the huge increase to repair cost.
Repair cost are keeping me, and I would assume others away from gold AH, and I refuse to pay anymore on this game.
Amen. The nerfs were needed to start the process of class equality... but every change blizz has made to the game just convinces me more of an honest to goodness conspiracy to bank off this game. EVERY step they have taken since release just so conveniently happened to create incentives for people to use RMAH.

Anyway, the repair costs NEED to go! That was completely unnecessary. I'm sure they will change it, but as I said... one more move to drain peoples gold and eliminate the only way they had to upgrade gear from farming if they didn't already have good enough gear for act 2 inferno... forcing them to turn to the elite few "lifers" who have profited off of the glitches and exploits since release who are now sitting on top of the world of diablo3.

I could be wrong, but i'm pretty sure that hitting him directly does absolutely nothing... and your success with those 3 things simply came from their AoE pinging the last of the spirit things to his death... Does anyone else have a say in this that can clarify?

I can't believe they didn't test AIS, especially on the live servers...I mean, you can technically get AIS for practically every slot...You don't think that a DH or a monk...Would stack that? Really?
I genuinely don't think it will get worse, though ~ I think they've learned quite a bit and will move forward with much more reservations than they did previously.
Except with repair costs smile.gif
post #8488 of 17854
Those patch notes are so great. I wish they would acctualy do it. I love the idea of a diamond gem, reducing repair cost for non-death damage. Heck I like it all biggrin.gif

had a 1m night last night.. finally bought a string of ears (not very good, but it's a start)and spent most the night farming act2 to maghda with my barb... it's super easy but I am getting so bored of the same skills...

walk into center of mobs holding left click > press 3(revenge) repeatedly doesn't really matter what any of my other skills are as they never take precedence over revenge. With the exception of a charge/leap out of bad.

zzz

was owning stuff with frost arrow crits last night too... nothing like clearing groups of 5+ mobs with 1 frost arrow crit smile.gif

my 2 solutions:
1. let the quests give more exp again, so a lvl 5 with a 60 friend can kill any of the end bosses, turn in a quest and gain 2+ levels; this is the aspect of rushing. I am fine with them removing the multiple game session glitch (that is more or less an exploit)
2. Give us NV after we kill diablo in normal. Simply put, if I could farm hell act 4 to level from 50-60 (actually recieve rares at a decent rate) I would happily level that way. Then when I am 60, I should have enough gear when I enter inferno.
I am tired of ZERO rares from the end bosses going from nm through hell (until you hit 60 and get 5 stacks NV). I had 100%+ MF on my gear, and still haven't seen a rare or higher drop from the end boss after the first time I killed them in Normal.

That's just not true... I've gotten plenty of rares from the bosses. Sure they're not amazing, but definitely more than useable at a lower level. In Normal, Diablo dropped 5 rares for me. I also have ZERO MF.

Last night I found my 3rd Legendary, again with ZERO MF. It dropped off of someone running through the Silver Spire in Hell. The Butcher in Hell also dropped my 2nd Legendary. You must just be very unlucky, or there is a MF bug somewhere in the game.

Also, I was stuck at Lvl 48 after Diablo in Nightmare, so I ran through the Act 3 quests (the signal fires/catapults one and the one where you destroy the enemy catapults) twice and made it to Lvl 50. That took maybe 30-40 min. I don't think it's really that big of a deal...
