Diablo 3 from Hell…

Possible Spoilers from Diablo 3!

Hello All,

So as you all probably have guessed, I have been playing Diablo 3 for the past couple of weeks. Am I loving the game? Yes. Yes I am. I am not ashamed to admit it. I had planned to make a post sooner, but never did it. Better late than never, I suppose. I have officially defeated Diablo 3 in Hell mode and now have a level 60 Wizard. Woot! Am I happy with it? For now, yes. I am not geared enough to do Inferno by myself. So as painful as it is, I have doing Inferno with a couple of friends. Is it really bad as they say it is? There’s a reason why I came up with the title for this post.

Almost Leet Intelligence!

The game is definitely a lot more fun when you are playing with other people. It is still fun playing the game solo, but it can go very slow. When I was working on Hell Mode, getting the amount of experience to fill a bar was…a bit tedious. When a bunch of my friends randomly joined my game, it seemed I got a bar of experience in about 10 minutes. Granted that two of the people actually have farmed Act 4 in Inferno, but it still went by pretty fast. As soon as I hit level 60, I decided to check out the auction house. Even though it is super easy to get gold in Diablo 3, the prices in the Auction House are ridiculous! I was pushing about 410K gold, which to me is A LOT.  According to the Auction House, it’s not. I still was about to buy a few pieces though. I also figured I needed more than 10K DPS to kill stuff in Inferno. I also had no idea where to begin on gear/spec so I could be able to do Inferno. I did a bit of research as well as trial and error, and so far…it’s hard. The closest thing to my playstyle and have the ability to kill stuff in Inferno without dying or getting the Out of Time Debuff was Arktem’s guide that he made on the Diablo 3 forums. At first, this build didn’t work for me. I was able to kill stuff rather quickly, but the Champions were having a field day with me. I got a bit frustrated so I decided to log off and take a break away from the computer. When I came back, I joined a friend’s game on Inferno Difficulty only then was this spec was great!

My mother-in-law told me I received a letter from my college, so I went AFK to open the letter. I got accepted into my Medical Coding/Billing program! WOOT! When I got done reading the letter, I came back to my laptop to find my Wizard dead. Why? My son had charged into three Rare Grotesques who had the abilities: Arcane Enchanted, Desecrate, Jailer, and Electrified. My barbarian friend cracked up about my son’s attempt to play the game. I revived my body, and we were able to kill the three Rares. Needless to say, my Barbarian friend died constantly and I miraculously was able to kite the monsters and survive. I was able to do the majority of the damage, and I was rather impressed with myself using Arktem’s Build. By the time combat was over, I was in tears from laughing so hard. The death animations in Diablo 3 remind me of Rag Dolls being tossed across the room.

Holy Moly! This is a long post. Hmm. Guess I’ll save my post for the breakdown of my Wizard’s build for tomorrow…If you can’t wait, it’s basically Arktem’s Build….but with a few tweaks for my playstyle.
