Turns out I substituted the 65% damage reduction skill with Revenge, made a huge change O.o

This is my skill setup right now, now blasting through packs that were raping me before. (I suppose spending 100k gold in stamina/str/phis resist gear helped a bit as well).

Have you looked on AH for a -lvl req weapon? will do loads of differance.
I really didnt find shout worth much at all at lower levels.
When leveling the general strat should be kill it before they kill you, not trying to outlast it.

Earthquake and wrath are very powerfull, and when I leveled my barb I ended up rotating them so that I used one each elite pack (as I met one pack more ofthen than every 2 min)
Once I reached hell I almost had to use both on each pack, or atleast that saved time as eartquake coupled with wrath just completely destroys any elite pack.

I really never found WW to be worth much at all for me, it just really was pretty useless.

Oh, and charge with reduced CD for each mob it hits is brilliant, hit 5mobs and its off CD again, and since all mobs are stunned after getting hit by charge, you can just chain charge through a big pack of mobs untill they are all dead.

This.

Since lvl 35ish I've been using them on my Monk, and stuff just melts. Currently she has a 730 dps weapon with 720ish LoH.. which she got at level 47. Works wonders.

Also get a cheap high dps -lvl weapon for your follower.

What sort of prices do you pay for your -lvl req items? Maybe I'm just too thrifty...

They can be decently priced, because they don't show up unless you search for them explicitly (the level range on AH search doesn't take it into account).

Is that on a 1-hander? If so, that's a sweet piece. It'll easily see you through to the end of Act 1 inferno, and probably into Act 2. I've been running a 700 dps 1-hander with about 350 LoH + socket (so ~650 total) and got through to Belial. Couldn't kill him due to enrage timer, so I just bought a 780 dps + crit damage + socket for about a 3k char-sheet dps boost.

Yep, Fist Weapon.

732 dps, +13 min damage, +206-481 Holy damage, 741 LoH, -lvl 12

Got it for ~300k.

Also picked up a 956 dps staff with 85 int and bonus fire damage for my enchantress for 85k (have to wait one more level to use it).

And, on a side note, sold 2 mil gold for $4.50 after tax, license, destination and handling charges.

Got ~300k? You can find something then.

The key is, if you think you found a good deal, and it's 1d11h, BUY IT NOW. Seriously. If you hesitate a few minutes and hem and haw, it will be gone. The good deals go FAST.

Yeah... I'm definitely too thrifty. Most I've ever paid for an item was 20k, and that was a ring with 7-14 damage, a socket, and I think an Int boost.

After having finally finished upgrading my stash, I'm up to ~100k... so I probably won't see any of those weapons on my main*.

*47 WD that is partway through Act III Nightmare. Does about 2200 dps.

Oh, you're going to enjoy that. I respeced her for dps and buffs on me rather than CC, gave her a 1k+ dps 100+ int weapon and she tears up trash mobs in Inferno now. Great for Act 1 farm runs.

It appears a potential side-effect of Blizzard allowing gold sales is that item sales on the RMAH have tanked.

Doesn't really surprise me. People are more willing to spend "funny money" than actual money, so the GAH should see better sales and thus attract more sellers.

Study 3 demonstrates that consumers spend more when they are spending scrip (a form of stored value certificate) versus cash of the same face value.

Time to start liquidating, as I won't be playing at all once Panda drops, and am getting bored anyway.

It's pretty hard to sell anything but the top end items right now. It may make more goblin sense to hold off until 1.4 hits. I would imagine more will be back to D3 at that point. There just seem to be way more buyers than sellers right now.

As mentioned above, I think the reason for this is the legalized gold selling. Item sales in the RMAH have gone off a cliff. However, I'm going to be selling off my best gear, so we'll see what happens.

Another factor is the boosted legendaries in 1.4, which might make current gear crap, so better to sell now.

Besides, I want to use the proceeds to pay for Panda, so need to get started now. :D
