Hell is quite apt with some of the combos you can end up facing.

My personal favourite is vortex-illusionist-desecrate, especially when faced in narrow corridor.

Immortal minions and Arcane Enchanted are by far the most annoying :P
The packs on Inferno can range from faceroll to pretty damn impossible.
Even if they "only" get 4 buffs, couple that up on a mob that already has some special ability by default teleport or even fast, and shit gets real xD

You mean... 90% of all the dungeons? I personally love it with my WD. Makes Dire Bats REALLY effective. Though my three least favorite mob abilities are Vortex, Knockback, Wall (I haven't made it very far, so those may change.) Wall is mostly because they usually put them up between me and them, making it impossible to attack.

Well, to be honest it was only a couple of times that I got blocked by illusions while standing in desecrate with leap on cooldown (playing barbarian myself), but those few moments of utter helplessness left their marks!

Treck, how far in inferno are you? I mean, I got to Butcher myself, but got him only to like 40% before dying when the whole room was on fire. Is there anything I can do about that except getting more DPS and killing him before being barbecued?

Im really only on act 2 (but ive poked around in the other acts with other people), and not far tho, just been farming gear in act one, for some reason its a pretty big step between the acts, and im told act 3 is even easier for whatever reason.
Butcher tho is just a pure dps check, I didnt solo him atleast as im going for a tanky build, but you need pretty high dps to get him down, and thats about it.

error 3006 kicks me out within less than a minute of loading in, every time.
situation unchanged since I bought the game.
Totally unplayable. Impossible to complete quests or find anything because every time it load me it it respawns a different map layout. I spent several hours just trying to farm mobs for xp, but it was just worthless getting kicked out over and over and over.

My barb is stuck at level 6. Really, really, really frustrated.

Did you contact blizzard to see if it's a known issue? (stupid question of the year, I bet they asked you to delete the WTF Cache and Interface folders)

Blizzard has been suggesting that people join general chat as a workaround to error 3007. I know it worked for me, my disconnects went from 5-10 per hour to 1-2 per play session.

There is a general chat?

Yup, and already filled with aholes and even gold selling spammers sadly...

Got my WD up to level 38, on ACT II nightmare right now.. bought him a legendary helm cheap, a rare 2H staff with tons of damage and int and I'm now melting mobs at 900+ damage w/o buffs (with a 5 stack syphon I one shot them).

Only finding difficult the "surprise bucksecks!" elites that spawn, jail/froze you and spawn several Super Mario type lazors that one shot you.

Looking for a little advice. Barb is now level 47 and just about done with Act III NM. I have had to solo quite a bit as most of my friends are either way ahead of or way behind me.

I have been running with a MF crit build:

Left - Frenzy + Triumph
Right - WW + Blood Funnel
Q - HotA + Thunderstrike (will be Birthright)
W - Overpower + Killing Spree
E - Threatening Shout + Grim Harvest
R - Battle Rage + Into the Fray
Passive - Weapons Master (Axe/Mace), Ruthless, Superstition

Up until about half way through Act III NM I had been completely destroying everything while dual wielding. Only dying to stupid combinations or just being careless. But now I just keep getting wrecked by pretty much any rare/elite I have even tried switching to 1h + shield which doesn't seem to increase my survivability much.

I usually, after dying, have to resort to swapping in Ignore Pain + Ignorance is Bliss and/or Wrath of the Berserker + Insanity.

I have been thinking of getting rid of Overpower in favor of Revenge + Best Served Cold, which I think would help a little.

Any suggestions for more survivability without destroying the Crit synergy too much? Maybe it would be best to hold off on the MF portion and getting more survivability/mobility until I'm level capped with better gear?

I'm just not sure... Also does anyone know any decent theorycraft sites for D3?

You'll basically need to give up mostly DPS builds in later Hell acts anyway so now is a good time to experiment with more defensive builds.

This is what I was running at that level

This one has abit more survival drop a free Earthquake, hit Ignore Pain and then Whirlwind and it can fill your health up quickly.

Additionally make use of the AH. Do a raw search for any armor with Strength and Vitality with a max buyout of what you're willing to spend on a piece of gear. There is so much out there it is rare to not find something with a buyout as low as 10K gold. Shoulders, rings and amulets are the general exception.

Seismic Slam with Shattered Ground is pretty awesome due to knockback and relatively long range (if you find yourself unable to stand in melee with some mobs, which is somewhat common in hell and inferno). For reference, this is my current build, swapping weapon Weapon Master with Ruthless, Nerves of Steel with Tough as Nail and Inspiring Presence with Bloodthirst depending on which gives more DPS, armour or healing respectively.
