But after gearing both a Wizard and Barb to ~105k dps, I can safely say that I enjoy the Barb a lot more. Wizard's a glass cannon, even with CM-stun build. 2-3 hits from anything and you're dead. Whereas the Barb, I just run in and smash shit to pieces with tons of armor+resist+lifesteal keeping me alive. Plus, with Wrath, I have a nice I-WIN button to fuck up an elite pack in seconds. :P
Farmed with a CM-Wiz friend of mine last night and we were steamrolling stuff on MP4-5 like it was nobodys business. He has like 40k HP and 800 all resists so he's not really all that squishy either :P He would just perma-stun elites while I killed em in 5-10 seconds with dem Bears on my WD. Neither of us that amazing gear either. He has only around 80k DPS and I have 70k... Though both have a fair bit of survivability going on (non-glasscannon).
yes I`m also having a Great time after 4 months.
Yes, I can farm MP6 somewhat easily with a CM Wizard, but elites take a while to kill and keeping them stunlocked is difficult, especially because I die in 2-3 hits. Whereas my Barb just runs right in and smashes the fuck out of the elite pack, I don't really have to worry about taking damage with all the armor and life return.
let`s say I`m a Barb and I have a skill that hits for 100% weapon damage.
Will the damage of that skill be greater if I stack Str? or is it fully dependent on the weapon?

Witch Doctor's gear is super cheap now, because he is the only class wants Life Regen.

Skill setups and certain stats to aim for is usually more important to look up than just the pure dps shown on as weapon. In lots of cases items with better or more desirable stats for the build you intend to use will outweigh just pure dps figure on the weapon involved. Yes you want a nice high dps weapon as that scales your dmg for all other factors but a slightly lower dps weapon might give you higher overall dmg output for your setup if it has better stat itemisation on it. Prime examples of this are weapons with high crit damage % on them or ones with a socket so you have potential to put in a nice high crit dmg green gem. You need to weigh these factors up when thinking about weapon choices then upgrade from there.
I came back after months of not playing and bought gear for my DH at around 500,000 and cleared inferno easily. Just make good deals and buy the cheaper stuff untill you can afford the shinies.
I played at launch, had fun till about mid-hell. Then it got boring. Then inferno came along and that was it for me. Stupid.
I came back for a few after every major patch. The most recent was 1.0.5, played it quite a lot over the past week or so. Maybe I'm biased but in my humble opinion the game is just as bad as it was. A terrible, horrible, disgusting husk of a video game. It has (had) so much potential...it stinks to see it wasted.
I finally got fed up after getting two shot on my Wizard by every elite pack I faced, and I refuse to do the WW/Thrive on Chaos barb build that costs millions in gold to get up and running properly. No, my friends, I will not pay to win. Using the auction house is a necessity, and I prefer to go out into the world and find it myself. That's what I did with Diablo 2 and D2: LoD (but not D1...I got my items duped lol...I was 12, gtfo). But in D3, those items don't drop. I see characters with 3 piece sets and the same Mempo helm and I know that the only way they got those items was buying them on the AH.
What an awful, awful, horrible excuse for a video game. I know nobody here gives a rat's arse but I won't be buying the expansions to D3, I won't be buying Heart of the Swarm, I made the mistake of buying MoP when I found out that Diablo 3, the game I had been waiting for for 8 years, sucks bigtime.
No, kind sirs and madams, I'm through with this ruse. Maybe I'm just getting old, but I prefer D2 over D3, Goldeneye 64 over Goldeneye: Reloaded, Heroes of Might and Magic IV over XBOX.
Diablo 3. Makes me more angry than I should be every time. Don't waste your time.
Random loot is random. It was random in D2 and it's random in D3. Not really sure why everyone's whining because now you use gold as a currency instead of SoJ's and HRs.
