Okay tards, Act 1 is piece of cake. Really. Act 2 however is like getting a haircut by freddy kruger on LSD, probably not fun at all but really painful.
Mod Edit: Infracted.

What? I know I'm a wizard (starting act2 atm), but my monk friend is midway through Act 2 and my barb friend is in act 3. You really have to go for a shield, and stack up resistances, a lot, I mean a lot.
And I saw him soloing act 3 yesterday on his stream, stop crying and farm better gear.
EDIT: he's doing it right now if you are interested.

Out of all the good gear on the AH now, there is still so much better RNG stats out there waiting to be found. Keep grinding it out, that's what this game is about.
All I can remember is doing pindleskin runs for hours every day just for a chance at gear. This is just the beginning!!!!
On my DH I farm act 1 from the halls of agony up the the butcher. I only have about 25k hp and 22k dps but I have no issues with most packs aside from invulnerable minions (don't have enough damage that jumps through them to the master so it enrages and dot kills me) and reflect damage (killable but takes alot of pots) Got a mace with 922 dps to drop last night off a pack before the warden. Was nice, if only i didn't get 1 shot by the butchers aoe chains every time I'd be pushing harder to get to act 2. (what type of damage is it? hits me for 27k if i knew what type it was i could stack resist for it and hopefully kill him) but back on topic I've had lots of luck farming the halls of agony in act 1 inferno on my DH
Kripp soloed all of inferno on a barb, your wrong.
The Butcher isnt even close to being anywhere near as hard as champion packs in in act2. I burn through all of act 1 easily for the 5 stack neph buff but I still have packs I avoid in act 2. No one can kill just any pack that spawns, there are combos that are not killable even by the best players in the world, they did avoid them afterall. The only boss in the game that is even remotely hard compared to elite and champion packs is inferno Diablo, and really, who cant solo him by now other than players not in inferno.
Or you can play around with builds+gear and figure out like some people post that you are better to stack resistance.
surely its impossible that people are doing that and taking 80% less damage due to that
i just got hit by 15k in act 4 while wearing 1029 phys resist (77.43%)
cba anymore, only way to go is pure zerging
for literally the entirety of act 1 as a decently geared barbarian you can use the wrath of the berserker insanity earthquake strat and kill almost every elite pack solo. i don't have the sickest gear, let alone even the best gear even act 1 can provide, but i slaughter elites and every boss in act 1 this way. act 2 is a different story. shit gear will cause bees to hit you for 9k per bee. fun.
The big problem with inferno is that some packs are unkillable for one class and easy as hell for another. While I do like the randomness of the zones/gear/packs something needs to be addressed about that.
