Only one boss is worth xp farming and that is he first boss of act iv. With a pack of 4 it takes 2 mins max. He dropped one rare in 30 fights but I did make 60k+ in nightmare doing that for an hour. The one thig that constantly drops a rare if you kill him is that glowing treasure thief who uses a portal if you can't kill him in time. But finding him is so random.

I love dat leprechaun, but he escapes 9 times out of 10.

Okay, thanks shakin, I was wondering about that. Is it even worth it to do any farming on normal, or should I just play it through and not waste the time yet? Also, is it worth training the blacksmith and buying from him at all? I've been messing around with it, but I see other guys playing that say they don't even bother with him and go straight to the auction house.


Nah, I ran through normal and nightmare. Those items you pick up in normal wouldn't even be of use later on because you will level up so fast. And don't waste time spending money on blacksmith/jewel, the items they craft for you is shitty, AH is the best option.

Make sure you pick up as much items and sell them to the merchant, 200g will add up. I usually buy a new weapon every 5 levels. Unless I'm struggling, I will buy new armor too but so far I've been getting ok drops.

If you have no use of rares or their shitty, sell them in the AH

Okay. I pick up everything and sell it to the merchant at the moment unless I can use it myself. I never really messed with the Auction House until last night. When I killed The Butcher he dropped a pair of Legendary pants, so I put those up as an auction just to start figuring out how the auction house works.

I think what I'll probably end up doing while I'm still on normal is just sell any regular and magical items I find to the merchant, and any rares or legendary items I find that I can't use myself I'll put up at the auction house and see if they make any money.

I find just throwing up items for cheap still nets me ~2000 more gold than a merchant does.

Jeez, I put 3 magic items up on the auction house and within minutes all 3 were sold for my buyout price. Made about 12,000 gold. I would've made about 400-500 selling to the merchant.

I'm still on normal, so nothing I have to sell makes very much money. I was shocked to make what I did. How come you aren't going to play anymore? Too bad you can't transfer gold, I would've taken some of that smokeyface

false, he does not constantly drop rares. he has as much percentage rate of dropping items as any other mobs. you just have more mf if anything if you're getting constant rares

lolwat, you can xfer gold via trade

Since I haven't seen anything posted about this here on the forums.




The composed songs consists of 3 different poems and they're listed in alphabetical order and this song is listed as "D3" or something like that. Whoever put the song into this game for that level went pretty much in dept. People are saying there is a possible alternate reality game within D3 because of the poem within the song.
Go figure

Started hardcore with a couple mates after being burned by the inferno boredom and not playing for days. It's actually pretty damn fun, much more exciting when you know a death means you are done.

Inferno is a bitch for barbs. I'm up to 6 mules full of gear plus my entire stash filled with rares and uniques. I hate being only beig able to sell 10 items, I found 10 last night in 20 minutes. FYI, doing azmodan runs in hell will net you atleast 4 rare drops. That stupid spider lady drops 2 and azmodan drops 2. In one run I had 3 drop from each boss and 4 more from elites. Too bad they all suck compared to what I have.

Here's an inferno farming run for the warden and butcher with a barb if you're interested:

Inferno is easy for barb imo, at least act 1 and some of act 2. Just get your resistance and armor up, most important stats by far.

Athene's Demon Hunter.

Doesn't really count because he had gold given to him by fans pretty much all day yesterday and some gear too. He was able to buy everything from the Auction House after that and still has 25m in the bank.
