    DH abuse smoke screen, wizards abuse energy shield. Everyone else is screwed! I'm getting tired of farming Act 1. Best fun came in late NM/early Hell when characters could actually go all out DPS.

    As a monk, every single ability I take is now defensive.

    I know the feeling all too well. 4x heals excluding potions. Only damage dealer is FoT with Quickening. :'(

    You can exploit Fot with Quickening. With sweeping winds up, any attacks made during your FoT animation will proc the additional 15 spirit. I cheesed my way through inferno act 1 the first time using this exploit. Spammed MoH: BOP 3 times a second.

    I knew there was a bug with FoT/Quickening but I didn't know the specifics of that! Thanks...should make getting through Act 3 Hell a lot easier. The Elite hurt so much.

    toasty, just for you [​IMG]

    Had to tune it down a bit since I'm going for low hp/high regen/energy shield, and I could only find the regen on some things that hampered my int. [​IMG]

    I got kinda sick of Diablo playing my DH in Act 2 on Nightmare. I guess it was being paired more with shitty groups than anything, either they just tried to do corpse runs off of each other to get to the end or they just went way too damn slow or they had no idea what to do.

    So I was wrong, I made it up to 38 already. Now check on what happened with this new helm I bought. Helm and Square Amethyst were like 3750 gold total and now I got an insane health boost.

    adds 1200+ health

    Just starting now. Not running nearly as well as it did during beta, though. Might have to turn the res down low :embar:

    It's actually almost kind of cheap buying stuff on there at this stage of the game. Square gems in every socket because they're like 4k to buy (10-13 for flawless square, then it gets expensive). Incidentally, if you have your gem dude trained up, you could conceivably make a bunch of money buying flawless gems, combining them until you get perfect square gems, then listing them for a large markup. Assuming those things actually do sell for the ~100k asking price. I seem to recall you can get flawless gems for about 200 bucks.

    I feel like in harder difficulties it will be pretty necessary to survive. Have been told that inferno is almost unplayable as a wizard without bumping vit and abusing energy shield. Which really takes all the fun out of it, if you're absolutely required to use a particular build just to not get your ass kicked. But hey, I'm not there yet and might never make it that far. Never did in D2.

    So there is something similar to mana shield i.e. energy shield

    In that case...Wizard class only needs to bump up their energy (mana pool) and let energy shield consume most of the damage.
    Essentially you want as high intelligence as possible on all items including sockets for a magician spell-caster.

    Lvl60 sounds so siiiick :slayer:
