Act 3 Paragon Leveling Guide – Get More EXP per Hour

I got a late jump on the whole Paragon leveling since I was out last week and had no time to play. 🙁 That’s never fun, but have made it back and started leveling. In the video above, I cover important topics for people looking to quickly level up their Paragon level, as well as tips/tricks I have learned while trying to find a great location to grind for experience.

Remember, that all of this is still a work in progress and as I level higher and higher I will be sharing more efficient runs with you guys.

Legendary Item Changes Patch 1.0.4

Blizzard just graced us with a new developer blog post which outlines the Legendary item changes we can expect in patch 1.0.4.

Here’s a few of the changes that makes my mouth water:

-Some legendary items will grant your character certain elite mob affixes (such as shielding, molten, etc.)
-Legendaries can now be ilvl 63, and major weapon damage increases.
-Helm of Command will NOT be changed.
-Any new set items will have a different name/set so you won’t be able to mix/match pre 1.0.4 and post 1.0.4
-Legendary crafting patterns will craft the new version of items post 1.0.4 (except for Helm of Command)

There’s a lot more. I recommend you take a few minutes and read through the full 1.0.4 Legendary Item Changes Developer Blog post for all the changes.


Act 2 Inferno Farming? For Real?!

A lot of people assume that Act 2 farming isn’t good. I used to fall into that crowd until I went out and tried it myself.

I found that it really is a nice farming step up from Act 1. It was actually a pleasant surprise. In the past, I completely hated this Act and would do everything I could to avoid it. While it still isn’t my favorite I like it now.

Anyway, enough rambling…watch the video above, try out the farming path and let me know what you think in the comments below.


Everything You Need to Know About the Sprint Barbarian Build

The Sprint/Whirlwind Barbarian build is the one that I use everyday when doing farming runs. It combines great movement speed in navigating dungeons and nice damage. Using it to skip all the regular mobs to find the elite pack is probably the best part of it.

In this article, I’m going to give you everything that you need to know about the build and how to start using it today.

Diablo 3 Character Profiles Are Here!

Just a quick news update. The “long-awaited” character profiles are finally here! (I, personally, would rather see a patch…but something is better than nothing I guess.)

After browsing around at my characters for a little bit I noticed one MAJOR thing that was missing from it. Where in the world are the achievements? I hope they add that at a later date. It does seem kinda strange to leave them out at this point.

Achievement Monday: How To Complete The Wheel of Misfortune Achievement

This achievement will take a while to do. It looks innocent enough, but having to see all 10 outcomes from the Ancient Device takes some time. Really any time there is an achievement which depends on spawning a random area which then has a random chance at an event it will take some time.

In the video you will see the fastest path to take to effectively farm this achievement as well as the 2 spawn locations of the Ancient Device.

For speed I recommend a class that can move extremely fast which is why I used a Demon Hunter in the video. Watch the video and let me know what you think, or any stories you have while trying to farm this achievement.

As always, if you like the video feel free to subscribe to my YouTube channel.


How To Price and Sell Your Items on the AH

Here’s a video that I put together walking you through the steps I take in order to find out two things. The first thing I find out is if the item I find is worth selling on the AH and the second thing I find out is how much the item is worth.

I decided on this topic since I know a lot of people who feel like they never have any gold and also feel like all the items they find are junk (or they are junk and they think the item is worth a lot). This topic alone can take someone from having hardly any gold to having a decent amount pretty rapidly.

This method along with my Act 1 farming route has helped me get millions of gold rather quickly. While this still is subject to the RNG of the game, I usually find at least one item per run I do that could be sold on the AH for at least a million gold.

Try this out and let me know what you think. Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified of new videos I do.


How To Kill Inferno Ghom With a Tank Barbarian (Patch 1.0.3)

I put together this video after getting stuck at Ghom in Act 3 Inferno. I couldn’t manage to kill him even though I had high resists on my Tank Barb. After researching for a bit I found the easiest solution to kill him.

You can see how stupid easy this is in the video. When I say stupid easy, I totally mean it. As Athene would say we turned Ghom into “chewing Ghom”….lol.


Here’s My Act 1 Inferno Farming Route For Patch 1.0.3

I put together this video about Act 1 Inferno farming since a lot of people have been asking for something like this. I know my route is a bit different than other routes I have seen which is pretty cool. It really is kinda fun to not have to farm the same spot over and over again to get loot.

This route has helped me make tons of gold over the past few weeks and was even able to find a rare ring that sold for 20 million gold on the gold AH.

Once you get to Inferno and can easily clear Act 1 then you can use this farming run to your advantage. One key thing to remember is you don’t need super awesome gear to get this done, but better gear will help you clear it faster.

Here’s the basic breakdown:
