It’s been far too long since I have updated you on the status of my Demon Hunter. It really has been put on the back burner since I’ve been working a lot on Paragon leveling for my Barbarian. The good part of having my DH on the back burner is being able to find nice upgrades for it when playing my Barbarian. That is how I was able to get a ton of good gear for my Demon Hunter and is pretty much ready to be played a lot more.
That is pretty much what I do for all my under geared level 60s. It’s so easy to find some decent drops that aren’t necessarily upgrades for your main character but could be used by a different one.
I’ve been enjoying the new patch this week and also have been enjoying participating in the Diablo 3 ladder at Diablo3Ladders.com. This video I go through the process I used to start off very quickly in terms of leveling 1-60 as well as Paragon leveling.
Monster Power has really been extremely helpful for leveling 1-60 and Monster Power 10 is a lot easier to use in Normal, Nightmare, and Hell. Check out the video above for the whole scoop.
Yet another video on farming mats for the Infernal Machine. This time farming Act 3 to get the Key of Terror from the keywarden. This keywarden is the hardest one to kill because he moves around so much and the falling corpses can be a pain.
In the video above I cover how to quickly farm the Key of Destruction in Act 1 for the Infernal Machine. Pretty simple to farm, just a few things to remember.
Monster Power level is important when farming these keys. Monster Power 10 guarantees a key drop, while at the lower Monster Power levels not so much. I usually farm at Monster Power 5 or 6 since it seems to be where I can quickly farm these.
5 stacks of Nephalem Valor is a must for the keys to have a chance to drop. Make sure to get 5 stacks first or you are just wasting your time.
I have spent a bit of time on the PTR last night and was able to record this video. Lots of changes are happening in 1.0.5 and a few major changes.
I covered two major changes in the video above: Monster Power and the Sprint nerf.
The new Monster Power system is pretty cool and a very welcome addition to Diablo 3. The questions I had about it were pretty simple ones. How hard will Monster Power 10 be and What kind of rewards can we expect from Monster Power.
Watch the video above or continue reading to learn more…
News for patch 1.0.5 has started to be released. It seems like this patch will be another good step forward for Diablo 3. In this patch you can expect to see the Infernal Machine and the new Monster Power system.
Infernal Machine is a type of machine that you will need to gather parts (from item drops) in order to complete it and once it’s completed you will get to fight the uber bosses. As of right now we know of one reward from this is a legendary ring (that is bind on account). Not sure how hard this will be, but hopefully it will be challenging.
One thing I think they should do is add uber versions of D2 bosses into D3. That would be pretty cool. 🙂
The Monster Power system is like the “players 8” command in Diablo 2. You get to increase the difficulty (health and damage) of the monsters and you will earn more xp, better loot, etc. Pretty easy to understand. One thing I want to do is find my specific Monster Power number in which I will be able to get awesome rewards while still farming fast.
The system goes from 1-10 with the current Inferno difficulty is around 2-3. That leaves some awesome scaling on difficulty for 10 I hope. Worst thing that could happen is Monster Power 10 being not difficult enough.
That’s pretty much all we know (for these 2 topics) at the moment. I’m hoping they bring out more info pretty quickly and bring the patch kinda fast.
I’ve read and heard a lot of people having issues selling items on the AH since patch 1.0.4 hit. Some say it’s the decrease in players causing it, but I think it’s more because of the legendary item buffs.
Now legendaries are the best in slot items for most of the slots, so the demand for rares is going down.
Don’t worry though, you can still get rid of most of your rares fairly easily. You just won’t be able to get top dollar for them anymore. Watch the video above to see how I sell my rares and other items.
It’s been a bit over a week since I last made a video. The reason being, is that every extra bit of time I had I was leveling my paragon. In the last video I was paragon level 13 and in this video I was paragon level 37.
I also go over changes to my paragon leveling route as well as gear changes and skill updates. A lot of stuff has happened in Diablo 3 this past week with one of those being Alkaizer being the first person to hit paragon level 100. Congrats Alkaizer! He was also nice enough to live stream and share his Act 3 route, which is what I have been using.
