Manglemaw Runs For Legendaries

UPDATE: This run has been nerfed as of 4/8/14 with patch 2.0.4.

Hey guys, I’ve seen a lot of people talking about the Manglemaw runs and how good they were. I was a bit skeptical but after an hour of farming him I was able to get 3 legendaries to drop.

I know, I know….an hour isn’t really a good indicator of a good spot or not.

I still felt like this was good to share with you guys. So, here it is. Try it out and let me know how you do farming here for legendaries.

Manglemaw Runs Breakdown

  • Start on Act 1 A Shattered Crown, Open the Northwest Gate.
  • These runs require a bit of setup, so start at the quest above and run through to the Cemetary and until you find Defiled Crypt Level 2.
  • Once you get there and Manglemaw busts through the door, don’t kill him but click on the door so you get the checkpoint.
  • Once you got the checkpoint you can kill him, go to town and leave the game. Rinse and repeat.
  • I recommend doing this on the highest Torment level you can.
  • Make sure you don’t have Firewalkers on or anything that would destroy the door before Manglemaw comes through it.

That’s pretty much all there is to it. A group of friends and a super fast Torment 6 kill is ideal for this. For my 3 legendaries in an hour though I only did it on Torment 3. Do what you can and still kill him quickly and easily. Give it a shot and let me know how you guys do. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel and come check me out on Twitch!


Diablo 3 RoS Fast Solo Powerleveling

UPDATE: This run has been nerfed as of 4/8/14 with patch 2.0.4.

Hey guys, I put this video together very quickly to share this great solo powerleveling method with you. It involves starting in Adventure mode, heading to Act III and looking for a quest from the Rakkis Crossing waypoint.

The quest giver is the fallen soldier up against the wall (Private James). It doesn’t involve killing any monsters, just running past them if possible. I don’t recommend this for Hardcore since getting killed is VERY likely to happen.

Private James doesn’t spawn all that often but when he does it is an easy 11 million XP on Torment VI. It takes 3 quest turn-ins at level 64 to hit 65, so very quick. I would say he spawns about 1/10 of the time. The main downtime you will have will be going in and out of games.

All you do is grab the quest, run up the stairs and turn it in. That’s it! I do imagine Blizzard will nerf this pretty quickly so act fast if you want.

On a side note, you can also get quite a bit of gold each run for this. I see around 100k gold each turn-in, so a few million can be had very quickly.


Act 3 Keep Depth Runs For Legendaries and XP

I put together today’s video showing a nice run that I’ve had success with the past few days. For most runs that are out right now, they are either experience runs or legendary runs. This run has a bit of both!

You could get a nice group of 4 people together and crank up the difficulty to Torment VI and grind out that XP or you can just cruise yourself through on Torment 1 for some fun, some xp, and a good shot at some legendaries! It’s a pretty customizable place to farm until the expansion hits on March 25th!

Keep Runs Breakdown

  • Start at Act III The Breached Keep quest at the beginning of the quest.
  • The run consists of doing all 3 levels of the Keep Depths including killing Ghom.
  • Pretty self-explanatory run with huge potential. I got 4 upgrades this week in this location.

That pretty much sums it up. My best in this location is 12 legendaries in about 6 hours of farming this spot. Try it out and let me know what you think!

Wave of Force Wizard Build

Here’s another fun Wizard build you can play around with as you wait for the expansion to hit. When I leveled up my second Wizard I started trying out Wave of Force and really did like it. I was left wondering if it could be the base skill in a build and still be viable in Torment difficulty. The answer is actually yes! It’s a pretty fun build and totally different than the Frozen Orb build I did earlier.

Build Breakdown

Build Link:!Yce!acbaZZ

Build Notes

  • Pretty simple build, buff up, dump Arcane Power with Wave of Force, and Spectral Blade to get Arcane Power back (and also increase the Fire damage).
  • I use Energy Armor with Pinpoint Barrier for the extra 5% crit, if you don’t have a ton of Arcane Power then you can go with something different.
  • Slow Time with Time Warp to give more damage. Pretty much most of the skills I chose are to help increase my damage against monsters. We want Wave of Force doing as much damage as possible.

That’s pretty much it! Try it out and let me know what you think. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos and don’t forget to come hang out on my live stream right here.


D3 Frost Arrow Demon Hunter Build

I haven’t played the Demon Hunter much at all since patch 2.0 came out. I did get a chance to play around with it earlier today and found this build to be pretty fun.

My gear on my DH is pretty weak at the moment but still had some fun with this. I thought I would share it with you guys. Watch the video above to check it out or continue reading for the build breakdown.

As always, let me know about any changes that you have found that works better.

Build Breakdown

Build Link:!ecY!YZbZcc

Build Notes

  • I chose to go with the Wolf companion since it gives increased damage. If you find yourself running out of hatred then going with the bat companion would be a good idea.
  • On lower Torment levels you might not need as much survivability as I’m using, so might want to play around with that if your damage is already pretty high.
  • Entangling Shot with Justice is Served along with Frost Arrow continue keeping monsters slowed so you can get that extra 20% damage from Cull of the Weak passive.

Anyway, that wraps it up! Try it out and let me know what you think! Also, don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube videos if you haven’t already!


Diablo 3 – Act 1 Goblin Farming Patch 2.0.3

It’s been a long time since I’ve heard anything about goblin farming. I remember back in the day watching Kripp farm that goblin in Act 2 on hardcore. This farming spot kinda brings back the fun a bit especially now since everything on the AH is selling pretty high and fast.

There are a lot of good things going for this run besides the goblin. I spent a good hour last night doing these runs and was able to get quite a few gems, crafting mats, and white items that I sold on the auction house.

Anyway, watch the video above to see the spot or read through the breakdown below.

Act 1 Goblin Farming Breakdown

  • Can start on any quest after the Old Ruins waypoint.
  • Go to Old Ruins, get your white item from the weapon rack, and then look for the Dark Cellar.
  • Inside the Cellar the Goblin can spawn, if he doesn’t you can get up to 2 chests in here.
  • He doesn’t spawn everytime, but enough to make this spot pretty profitable.
  • I run this on Torment 1 because I want to be able to kill the Goblin quickly and easily. No need for higher Torment levels.

Try this spot out and let us know what you get. It’s a great way to say good-bye to the AH by selling a lot of stuff and making some gold.

D3 Fire Barb Build Patch 2.0

Here’s a fun build that I’ve been running around with lately, the fire barbarian build. It really is fun and a bit different to play than the other barb builds.

This one focuses around the Seismic Slam skill and is a good, fun alternative to Whirlwind. Check out the video above to see it in action or read on to see the build breakdown.

Build Breakdown

Build Link:!Whe!ZcbcZb

Build Notes

  • Some items can really help this build shine. Look for Max Fury, Fire Damage, Cooldown Reduction items.
  • Paragon points are good spent in Cooldown Reduction, Resource Cost Reduction, and Max Fury.
  • Seismic Slam is the only main Fury spender you have, the rest are to either buff damage (Battle Rage) or generate Fury with.
  • You do have to manage your Fury, it does require a little bit of skill but can be done pretty easily.
  • A big 2-hander is great to use. I use a Skorn in the video.

That pretty much covers it for this build. Try it out and let me know what you think. If you haven’t yet, make sure you subscribe to my YouTube videos! 🙂


Diablo 3 Powerleveling – Act 2 Royal Audience Runs Patch 2.0.2

Wow, this run is pretty awesome. It is a bit of a pain because it does require some running around before you get to start killing monsters but the experience is pretty amazing.

This one is in Act 2 on the Royal Audience quest. Start off on that quest and basically do the quest up until the end in the sewer. For some reason this didn’t get nerfed like all the other quest-based leveling areas. I’m not sure how long this will last, but if you have some time give it a go.

Royal Audience Run Breakdown:

  • Do this on the HIGHEST Torment level you can without dying a ton. Higher the level, the more XP you get. This really is super important also due to the fact it does involve a lot of downtime (time not spent killing monsters).
  • Groups are great for this, as with any leveling spot.
  • In the run in the video I was able to get 32 Million XP is about 4 minutes.
  • You can find out more about the build I was using in the video right here.
  • Make sure to open all the chests along the way. I was able to get a legendary from them last night.

Well, that’s about it for this run. It’s pretty good. Don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel to be notified when I put out new videos!


Everything You Need To Know About The 2.0.1 Reset Quests Feature

The new reset quest feature is pretty awesome. I have used it a lot myself for when I play through the game again and again.

I keep seeing a lot of questions about what exactly does it do, the benefits of using it, as well as the disadvantages of using it. So I thought it might be time to put together a nice complete post about the feature.

Why Add the Reset Quests Button?

I figured we could start here to give a nice overview and to get into the head of the developers for a moment. Since Blizzard took out the multiple difficulty levels (Normal, Nightmare, Hell, Inferno) they thought they should add in a way to basically reset the quests and start from the beginning of the game after beating it.

Kinda as a way for players that like that specific type of play to keep doing it. I’m pretty sure this was the sole purpose of it in the beginning. With the way patch 2.0.1 really evolved the game this feature has also started to evolve.


D3 Core of Arreat Farming for Legendaries Patch 2.0.2

Wanting to get some more legendary drops? This “Core run” is currently pretty popular to do because a lot of people have great success with it. This is a pretty simple and fast run at the Core of Arreat in Act III. I have a breakdown of the route below and watch the video above to see the run in action!

Here’s the farming route breakdown:

  • Start at the Act III Kill Azmodan quest.
  • Head to the Core of Arreat using the waypoint.
  • Start at the beginning and go all the way to get the checkpoint right before entering Azmodan’s room.
  • Make sure to open all the chests! Chests usually have most of the legendaries in this run.
  • Killing monsters is really optional, although I like to do it to help keep it real.
  • Pick up everything. A lot of stuff is selling really well on the AH before it’s shut down.
  • Try it out for an hour and see what kind of results you have.

That’s pretty much it. Very quick and easy run that anyone can do. It’s not just for the players that can rip apart Torment 6 easily. I hope this helps you out and don’t forget to subscribe to my YouTube channel!
