Those are the two weapons I am using (any suggestions on a different setup?).

although LOH is always good, i disagree with "needing" it until inferno act 3 really (personally, that's my brick wall right now. and i've never used LOH because im poor *sad face*). normal to hell is mostly all about health, armor and dps. definitely get better weps. you dont have to look for weapons with str and vit, just get one with the highest dps. str + vit is always expensive so you can also try looking for items with either socket only, crit dmg, str only, vit only, dex, vit + dex, aspd, dex + aspd, etc.

i try not to dictate what one should be doing or what build one should go because experimenting is always fun..dual wielding is also good until act 2 inferno so do not worry, use whatever weapon you like. for skills, i would recommend adding an "escape" skill like leap or furious charge so you could get away fast. leap + iron impact is very good because you can raise your armor by 300% every 10 secs. furious charge + dreadnought on the other hand gives you some heal while escaping.

also, if you need some stuff, i could probably give you some. my inventory is getting full and i am unable to sell them all anyway.

False. I would stick with as much LoH as you can get. Also if you have charge or leap on your bar replace it with sprint (run like the wind rune). This allows you to run away while your tornadoes hit mobs and trigger your LoH. Than the next thing you will want to do is find a "mighty weapon" with decent LoH and a socket. Make sure you always have weapons master as 1 of your passives as you will gain 3 rage anytime you, or your tornadoes hit a mob.

I am using this to farm act 1 and I don't even stop to attack mobs anymore, just run in circles until everything is dead. Stack str, + damage and MF/GF. Put WoTB with insanity in case you run into frozen or jailer. If you have problems running into tight spots where there are too many mobs to get through you can put charge or leap on your bar. You can put warcry with the rune that turns crits to rage on your bar if you want to run with sprint and whirlwind, but I didn't find it necessary. Dual wield or 2hander really doesn't matter, I am dual wielding atm as it nets me more LoH and I am running around with only 24k hp and little resist and just zoom zooming over mobs.

If you are fighting a mob that doesn't like to chase simply run a half circle hit him once or twice, and than half circle again as 60% weapon damage is no joke.

take out the rubies from your weapons, past nightmare, you would be better served by (probably) any other weapon gem. sword n board is pretty good for survivability, you could also take some of them VIT gems and trade for high STR ones. thats probably some of the easy/quick things to do considering you'll be able to get the good stuff for level 60 soon. consider getting rid of (i think it's) wrath of the beserker for a skill with life regen and a much smaller cooldown. also, on passives, go for armor boosting ones - especially if you're in group play, worry about tanking and let the ranged do the DPS.

It's actually a Battle Rage rune that turns crits into rage some of the time. redface.gif

You should never have any rune except impunity on war cry for inferno.

I was running 2H in Hell. Ground Stomp then Cleave made things explode. I don't think you have the gear for WW so I would switch it out for Seismic Slam.

As others have said I think your weapons need to be upgraded. At 55 there is a new dps break on weapons.

Give me your ID and if I find some 51-59 loot on my inferno runs I will pass them on to you

A) Increased life regeneration is never a bad thing and considering how little he has, he needs more.
B) I believe that LoH is ineffective against shielding and invulnerable minions. Throw on reflect damage on top of that, and LoH would be useless. Life regeneration on the other hand can always be counted on.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree...It's not that it's useless but, in a shielding/invul situation is the @20% return garnered from LoH > 100% life regen?

You have to remember, your damage etc is mitigated...Your regen, isn't.

LoH is useless against invuln minions, but it is not useless against shielding, just less effective. The main point of the play style that I mentioned is to be toe-to-toe as little as possible. I should have mentioned though that I keep ignore pain (ignorance is bliss) on my bar for invuln minions and just pop that + WotB and burn the rare. I have just zoomed around them, but that takes longer.

Also note that this isn't a very good build to try for group play and probably not the best build for progression either.

Yea, lol it's battle rage, wrong shout. Agreed that once in Hell/inferno impunity is pretty much a must have.

Anyone know if you can get blacksmith/jewelcrafting plans before lvl 60? Inferno? Do you need to have them maxed out before they start to drop?

Just wondering if it's worthwhile to upgrade them to max right now for the chance for drops or if it even matters at all, currently in ACT I Hell, lvl 52 monk.
post #9100 of 30065
I am at a complete wall with my Wizard in Act II Inferno. I know that I need to upgrade my gear. But, I just can't seem to find out what the best stats are I should be looking for in gear. Up until now I have only been focusing on INT and VIT pretty much. I need to get my armor rating up and my resists. What else should I be focused on when picking gear pieces?
