So I am about 1/3 in ? I am finding it quite interesting that I don't seem to be able to often find more powerful weapons as I can better armour.

yeh i haven't had much luck finding better weapons either.  what character type and level are you?

i end up buying and selling on the auction house a bit.

i'm level 56 i think, and 250dps 1 handed weapon barbarian.  my total damage is only just over 3000.. but i've found as it gets on vitality and armour are more important.  also i have life per kill bonus.  and regen from damage done.  i have 41k health.

you don't have to worry too much for the first playthrough though.  also you can try playing with your skills to make sure you have ones that are working well for you.

Wow, I am only level 19. Barbarian.

What do you mean first play through? I don't think I've ever played a game twice in my life. I have two little kids now, I'm lucky if I can play through once these days :)

Is there a hotkey for collect all treasure? Clicking on stuff is all very tedious.

Also anyone notice that items you craft seem to always been miles behind what you are picking up off monsters?

hey guys, just a heads up, don't swear on the blizzard forums or they issue a perm ban. I'm perm banned for saying "holy s//t thats a good item."

Many people say Barbs are hard. lol. Im a level 58 barb with a 367dps weapon and armour etc brings me up to around 4900dps with 32k vitality. It's probably not the best but yea. Also i'm using ground stomp, threatening shout, fury, war cry, revenge (if i remember correctly) Just entered the 3rd act in hell and moving on at a good pace. Ill repost on inferno and let you know what its like

you want a 400+ 1 handed axe that gives bonus to str/int/life on hit?  and you're probably going to want to boost your vit a bit.

What a nightmare this game is. I have just finished 3 play throughs of the same area as I just got disconnected 3 times in an hour and lost my entire progress. I am about 1 more disconnect away from throwing this game in the bin.

Thought I'd post this here before the buy/see and swap forum.

I have an unused game key (US version).

Purchased from offgamers, I can forward the scan of the CD key.

All I have done is create the account and downloaded the client, I have never actually got as far as selecting a character etc becasuse it is going to be more trouble than it is worth trying to get things set-up with my layout.

I have my htpc away in a cupboard and use a Logitech bluetooth mouse/keyboard.

Signal sometimes drops out a bit which is not ideal but even worse the cursor just refuses to move at all once I log in to the game screen. I have googled this issue but had no luck.

Anyway, $60NZ for anyone that wants it. Paypal OK too.

Hes playing Diablo 3 while on a treadmill, and bought the Korean version of Diablo so he can learn the language while playing.

To all who are having trouble in the game: add me b0untypure1#6598

If you are stuck at any place before and including act 1 inferno i can help. I have got to magda act 2 ferno, but cannot get belial down. If you are struggling to find a weapon upgrade, 5k should be more than enough money to get anything 600 dps and below. I have completed about 80 butcher runs and sell all my loot 5k or less, and the good items, 5k starting bid.

I have a level 26 WD - who prob can't help lol
18 DH - getting to 60 eventually
60 Barb 800 resist all, 13700 dps, 38k vit
60 Wizard 500 resist all, 30kdps buffed, 38k vit 

obviously my gear and stats change all the time, but this is what they are atm. Stuck on ferno act 1? I can do it without 1 potion with 2 people in game so i can help.

I'm not saying im the best in diablo blah blah blah, It's just that the game starts at inferno. Good challenge, insane weapons and armour to wear, crazy elite combos, and good loot. If your stuck on the complete act 3 or something, i probably dont have time to do an entire act, but a certain boss or elite pack, just msg and invite me :)

in terms of gearing up from loot, you should be able to get through normal and nightmare without AH, hell if your lucky, but IMO hell is more fun when you pwn all, so i usually go AH and gear up.

For all those ahead of me, im jelly. But when my DH gets 60, gg diablo (cause its OP)
