I'm starting to get bored of the Barb as well, trying for a fuckton of time to get good rings, but Kadala's being a bitch and the Mystic costs multiples fucktons of gold to turn good rings into great rings.

So meanwhile, I'm finishing up the other toons to 70 and discover (at last) the class variety in this game :-p

Man, them gem costs... T_T
My rings and amulets still have room for improvement (0.5% of CS here, 0.5% of AS there...), but it's just so expensive. I hate spending my gold in any game, even if this really is the only thing you can spend gold on in this game now. I just don't like using it. I want to hoard it, and then sleep on top of a pile of it.

I've leveled all the classes to 70 (bar the Demon Hunter, which is 60-something), figuring I'll spread all my reject legendaries among them. Though with the smart loot, most of the time they'll have the wrong core stat.

That is my biggest gripe. Almost everything is either smartloot or vit trash. Makes gearing a follower with different main stat a pain.Least if you want them to do any damage.

Didn't have as much of a problem with Lindon at least - most Bow/Crossbows are Dex-aligned, even on my Barb.
Necks and Rings are another matter, but it does drop from time to time...

I just save legendaries that have decent secondary stats so I only have to pay to reroll the main stat on my alts... seems to work out well enough.

Interesting tangent: apparently this board doesn't approve of the word "legendaries" and would rather me spell it "legendries." However, upon trying to look up the proper spelling via google... "legendries" tries to reroute to "legendaries."

When I'm rolling around with friends that play int or dex classes I ask them for their crap jewelery or legendaries for my followers, and give them my str gear.

I got a Gyrfalcon's Foote (Blessed Shield now has Zero cost) and a Jekangbord (Blessed Shield now ricochets to 4-6 additional targets) on my Crusader, went from T2 to T4 from those two items alone with a rather mediocre sheet DPS of 660,000. Toss in Ring of Royal Grandeur and getting bonuses from Aughild's Authority 97% ranged and melee damage reduction, 15% damage increase to elites and 15% elite damage reduction, and 4 piece Blackthorne's I can survive fairly well.

For the Crusader I'm in the area where everything will have to be better rolls of the current gear, I have a low damage Foote and only a 4 bounce Jekangbord, or set items to replace the crafted set items. Made a second crusader to play a 2H cool down style build and with all the hand-me-downs I was able to start on Torment 2.

Welp, seems like I finally dropped out of RoS.
Partially because it got repetitive (no sh*t Sherlock?), and partially because I got a big itch to replay TSW :)

Problem with the crusader is those 2 items are almost mandatory if you want to make it out of T2. Without you just don't have the damage.


I'm running 600kish DPS with +35% holy dmg and +31% elite damage, I melt through shit in T2, but in T3 I don't even have the damage to beat the enrage on big bosses.

For comparison, I'm at about 920k dps and 11m toughness and can do T3 just fine, still haven't gotten neither the flail nor the shield. :( T4 is too slow. I'm using a fire-based build, including the Maximus sword (extra fire damage, pluss that demon on a chain), and I swear the demon chain does even more damage than I do. >_> Tears through most things.

I mostly farmed T1 and T2 because of the higher speed, but bored out of my mind with the grind so decided to up it to T3. It's still fast, but if I get 2-3 of the wrong elite packs, I'm in trouble.

Anyone know if there's any specific place to farm for the flail/shield and/or the crusader set? I've got shoulders and chest down, but I'd love to get the rest of the set bonuses too...

11k though? °_°
I'm at 5.5kk and I don't see myself getting higher without sacrificing LOTS of damage :s

huh, I'm only about 690K damage, went to attack speed over crit for paragon, on my Crusader and T4 bounties and rifts go fine.

My 2H cooldown based crusader isn't that high and does T3 just fine.

Sorry, I generally don't like posting up my armoury link, so I made this here for you guise <3
There's some weird discrepancies between armoury and in-game though, and it's not just the AS buff... Anyone else got that?
Tipped 1m DPS since my last post, got a new helm. \o/

EDIT: Link to image because I forgot these boards don't resize images any more. Least not for me. :(

Christ that's a lot of crit damage.

I've got the Pet Crusader Build going myself :D

http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/shad ... o/44400749

4pc Asheara's
Haunt of Vaxo
Maximus
And then my templar has a Genzaniku

When everything's up I've got 7 things in my posse running around :D

I regret sharding my l58 Vaxo; I could have given it to a minion for even more hilarity. Assuming it works. Does it?

I wish there were tools to actually figure out how changing gear affects practical DPS. Like, is the pet damage and increased sheet DPS of the Maximus worth giving up the 17% lightning damage on my Odyns (given I've got a lightning build). I just have no way of telling. How can you evaluate if is it worth giving up 4pc Asheara for the T&T gloves?

Drive me nuts. Give me some fucking tools, Blizz. Please.
