Anyone looking for these? I crafted 4 of these, and willing to sell them for 27.5MIL each!


Also I am on holidays for 5 days, so I would like to play some D3 with my fellow canuckers, add me there Sam613#1153

Heh... not my schtick.... I'm pretty much single player solo only. (I keep saying that it's because other people don't play nice in the sandbox, but I suspect it's actually me.... ;) ).

Maybe this is old news to all other players but in case it's not I've just become aware of a cool enchantress build for folks like myself who primarily play solo.......

Azurewrath - Game Guide - Diablo III

This is a fairly low roll on one of these swords (self found) but they can be had for well under 1M on the AH with higher specs (IAS up to 21%, Freeze up to 15% . Because of the lack of random roll thus no CC or CD they're useless for player characters, but because of the high chance to proc the freeze and the high IAS it turns the enchantress into your own personal CM Wiz.

I don't know if they changed the enchantress' weapons abilities but I was absolutely sure I tried to equip this on her when I found the weapon and she couldn't equip it... this evening somebody suggested I give it another try and it worked fine.

I'm amazed at how often the freeze procs even with the low rolls on my particular sword, as well as how often it seems to turn into a permafreeze. Secondary effect is chill/slow even if the freeze doesn't proc because of the cold damage on the weapon.

I'm tickled pink.

If you're looking to give it a try, follower damage isn't the focus so ammy, rings, and token need IAS / Vit / defense, and if you're feeling like spending some coin there's a legendary ammy W/ freeze chance to bump your proc chance.

why is d3 so addictive? I have been on holidays since Thursday and I have played at least 20 hours since. I am really tired and want to sleep, but can't do it. Trying to make craft some helfire rings.

I found it the complete opposite. I thought i was going to get a addicted to the game but only played until like level 20 and got very bored. I was a hardcore D2 player so I thought i would enjoy it. Has it gotten much better since the release?

Its definitely better then release by a long shot...but I'm unsure what to say else then that. In my opinion its just not the same feeling as D1 or 2. I'm unsure how to vocalize it, but its just a different game imo.

I suspect if you didn't enjoy it for the first 20 lvls then you still won't enjoy it. All of the patches have been geared towards fixing endgame issues (lvl 60+ ).

Yeah, you make a good point. After i played D2 i played wow. I guess i was expecting it to be like that. I still might give it a second try. Thinking about it
