if you can do MP1... i'd suggest doing A3 MP0 and farm the more efficient routes. A3's layout is quite linear which makes for smoother farming runs.

WTF is going on with the AH, I had a Cinder coat up for sale as well as a kick ass amulet and ring, now they've disappeared into the void... 2 of the people I game with lost several hundered gold each in failed bids as well.

I know it's been slower than whalesnot over the last few days and that they apparently did some maintenance to it thursday AM, but so far I haven't seen anything go missing. (Not that I find stuff that'll sell for more than a few 100K anywise..... ;) ).

On the No-AH loothunt things have been progressing fairly well... I found a second scorn (this one has Strength / Int ) to replace the dex one I had and have found all of the IK set except for the helm. The IK weapon looks cool, but it can't hold a candle to a Skorn w/ crit.... I'd lose 35K DPS if I used it.

Andy's is giving me about 16K worth of damage, and again... because it's found rather than purchased, you'll notice that the "takes extra fire damage" is quite high.... ;)

Pretty much farm full time solo MP2 (MP3 isn't too bad, but MP4 is brutally slow in my mind) with most white mobs taking two hits at most and WW through crowds keeping up my health (believe it or not... I attribute a lot of that to the 12K boost I've got to health globes.... I dropped the 9K ring for a different one and was wondering wth I was dying so much until I realised that a big part of my WW life is coming from globes.

Seems my items are back, now I have 2 crappy cinder coats as I picked up another one yesterday that's even worse than the one I was selling...

Finally got around to getting enough organs for a hellfire ring, and while I doubt a randomly rolled ring is going to end up being end-game gear I didn't realise that the HF rings weren't level restricted. Certainly makes leveling a new character fairly easy with 150+ main stat, +35% experience, a chance to throw an MP10 boss 1-shot killing fireball, and 4 ilvl 63 randoms headstart.

Currently working on another barb to get the 2 lvl60 barb achievement (I rolled a str ring).

AH seems better now. At least, I didn't have any issues over the weekend and even managed to snipe a very nice Witching Hour for my monk with 2 secs left on the timer.

Also rolled a decent int hellfire ring for my WD:
3.5% crit
270 int
140 vit
17-35 dmg

*EDIT*

Sounds like 1.07 will be going live tomorrow.

Nice what did you pay for the witching hour?

I got another account the guy assured me it wouldn't get banned. I don't bot personally and never will.

Just over 17m. 9% IAS, 49% CD, 45 fire resist & 70-odd dex. Gave me a 2.5k sheet DPS boost which is actually around 12k more to fists of thunder, plus it has 110 str which adds 10k or so EHP.

Currently on the AH for I believe 10m starting bid. Not sure if there were any bids on it yet.
Are you fire resist? I don't remember.
Here are the stats on it if you're interested:

The Witching Hour (Legendary Belt)
266 Armor
+75 Dexterity
+100 Intelligence
+43 Fire Resistance
Attack speed increased by 9%
Critical Hit Damage increased by 35%
Melee attackers take 310 damage per hit
