Halfway through A3 now, (my buddy has an unending urge to explore every crack and crevice in the game...it's starting to drive me nuts) lvl 27, TBH, I've probably spent about half of my time buying/selling crap on the AH - half the time I make money, half the time I lose money, but I've generally been trending upward, I guess it's just in my blood.
In A4 nightmare now. Where are the rest of you yahoos at?
Well one of my friends is done with hell and going inferno now. I switched from my barb to my monk so both are at lvl 44, barb is act II nightmare still and monk is halfway though act III nightmare. Work most of the day tomorrow but plan to be on to hell by monday night.
Just finished nightmare today, In hell now, and OMG it's.....hell...an elite spawn is a PITA - a hard elite spawn is...well, you might as well go back to nightmare
P.S. - the Diablo fight in nightmare was pretty rough for us - we probably wiped half a dozen times in the shadow phase. Finally hit a "perfect" round, battle-rezzed my tank buddy 3 or 4 times, and cooldowns came just in the nick of time about a dozen times.
Thank god for the AH - took my DPS from 2900 to 7100 for about 40k gold. Hopefully that should make a bit of a difference when my tank buddy gets back on and we go at hell again.
I'm also in Act II Normal. Just don't have much time. My little bro is in Act II or III on Nightmare.
Normal is stupid easy, especially if you buy stuff of the AH. My monk just runs through pwning all. Glad to know that is going to go away in Nightmare mode...
Ran my monk through nightmare in a day pretty easily. Once you have spec abilities and good passives like the one with everything its a breeze. Almost through act I on hell and its still pretty easy as long as you know mechanics of mobs and have a good rotation. My advice for when you start nightmare is pick up weapons first on the AH. I got lucky and snagged my for dirt cheap but it makes a world of a difference. Did the same thing when I hit 52 and skele king was cake on hell mode. Not looking forward to going complete defensive for inferno but whatever works I guess
Well my friends I was playing with at all 60 and in inferno. I can make hell azmodan runs, but I can't join them at lvl 55, not sure why maybe I'm not in the lvl requirement for that quest. Getting from 54 to 55 was slow in A1 in public games too :
I'm also irritated what bosses hardly ever drop rares. Seems like the only point of doing a hard boss is just to move on, no phat lootz.
