    ^This is pretty much all you need for normal: Puncturing Arrow + Chemical Burn. The bat will help. Don't worry about SS, just stay far away from him and use the minimap to launch hungering arrows at him from across the map.

    Like otc said. The key is to always move. He can't do much besides his cages, which are annoyinng, esp. if you run so far away that you can't see him anymore. Look out for black spots on the ground, then just move away. If you get caged, spam potion until he releases you and get the fuck away. Two health wells are a good assistance. Good luck!
    When you get ported in the subarea, you need to run a lot, too. Like always, kiting is key. The area isn't that big, so kite wisely.

    im still somewhat skeptical of this. i guarantee i haven't been phished, and if i've been keylogged, why aren't my bank/email/whatever compromised also? and how to explain my internet issues (not just bnet connection) which only happened while playing d3 while my connection was verified by my isp to be 100% functional? the wording is still questionable - they have still "yet" to find any compromises outside of user/pass; always an out for them there.

    im pretty sure this is just to restore confidence in account security prior to RMAH. i added an authenticator, so we'll see what happens. still waiting an an account restore; if it doesn't happen by 4pm tomorrow they will be past due in doing so.

    None of the classes will end up as they are now probably, anyone remember corpse explosion necs from d2? Yeah, not so much anymore.

    Exactly. Once the expansion comes out and after numerous patches, the initial classes will be completely reworked.

    i love how people on the bnet forums are raging about how d2 is way better than d3... except they're talking about the latest patch of d2:lod. sure, draw a comparison from an expansion pack to a game with multiple content patches with years and years worth of fine tuning to a game that literally hasn't been out for 10 days yet. brilliance.

    i really need to stop going to bnet forums; they should really have a giant banner stating "abandon hope, all ye who enter here" on the top of the page.

    This whole "hacked" thing is weird. I've read up on it. I want to believe Blizzard as they are usually forthcoming with issues that it may have with games.

    I've ordered my components for my new rig. Hope in a week or two to be able to actually play D3 and maybe all the teething problems will be fixed by then.

    That is the standard blizzard game routine. Every wow patch with a new raid it was either it's too easy, or it's too hard. It's cleared too fast or it's impossible to clear the first week and thus must be nerfed.

    Jarude, are you using an authenticator on your account?

    I remember someone from Blizz saying that even their most hardcore testers couldn't even beat inferno and then they doubled the difficulty. Inferno isn't even possible for melee chars right now, and casters just kite and get 1 shotted if they mess up.

    I'm in act 2 inferno with a monk and I just don't see me going anywhere for a looooong time. I guess they want me to farm act 1 until I can buy a 1000 dps weapon.

    that's not 100% true. They had playtesters who had access to character editors who were able to give themselves godly gear and were able to beat it. The people who couldn't beat it were playtesters who were playing straight through and could never gear up enough to do it--but they didn't have an AH or a large economy going, so they were restricted to the items they actually picked up. Being able to gear up with proper items for your class (instead of having to settle for things like a crossbow with +Dex and +Int because it is otherwise the best you can find) has made a huge difference and allowed people who weren't using 24/7 invisibility to make it further than the blizz testers ever were able to go.

    I like that its taking people time do get past inferno - it should. To make a game that can be beat in less than 10 days for nearly all players would be ridiculous and I've never understood why everyone is so focused on it like its some race. It should be fun to develop characters, find or trade for new gear, fiddle with skills/runes. I think the players that approach the game from a RPG not action perspective are generally more satisfied with the product. It will need tweaking, as all these games do, but I find it to be highly enjoyable so far.

    i just attached one, and ive been playing a little with the lvl 17 wd that didn't get his stuff jacked, lol. i didnt have an authenticator before i got hacked.


    ftfy

    and fwiw, im glad that inferno is as hard as it is; i want endgame content that is going to take a long, long, long time to beat. i like how its linear questing, too - uber tristram in d2 was stupid since it was so damn tedious to find all the organs and whatnot to even get there, and once you did, a smitadin could crush it just to get a noob druid torch. later, rinse, repeat... i want a hard game, not an easy game with pointless hard stuff tacked on.

    Legendaries being reworked at the moment. No word yet on whether they will retroactively modify the ones already found.

    I am now geared enough for white mobs in act 2 inferno on my monk.

    11k dps
    51k hp
    58% dmg reduction
    60% res all
    32% dodge
    11% block

    I need a better shield to up my block rate. Crippling wave + LTK are a pretty good combo. Being able to kill multiple units during my shield/blind is allowing me to progress a little.
