You can do that? I thought MPX was limited to Inferno....

Well drops aren't as good right? If I do Normal + MP10.

Compared to doing inferno runs with a lvl 60 character? No, but it's great for a new character. I suspect there are some cases / gear where MP10 in non-inferno might be worthwhile for gold farming though.

I've done MP10 runs ahead of new characters for the last 3 I put through, it's nice having a full set of rare gear (sans some items that don't exist below a certian level like rings/amulets/shoulders) with no level requirement waiting for you when you first get to Tristam, a level 60 char tends to get a lot of rare drops even on the lower difficulty levels(normal nightmare..). When you're done with them, they usually fetch a decent amout of gold on the AH as well.

Probably just takes time for it to convert. It played @720p for me.

So does the % damage to life thing not work if you're using Whirlwind? One of my Barb's doesn't appear to heal when I use this sword, But one of my Monks is damn near indestructible with it. (On MP1 anyway...)

Nott too familiar with barbs, but maybe WW has a really bad proc coefficient for LS compared to the skills you're using on your monk?

the % damage is already been factored into the weapon's avg damage. That 2H sword is useless IMO because it lacks socket and/or base crit damage.

barb's have the advantage of not getting life steal on their weapons because they can get life steal on their belt and as a passive.

My barb is setup for WW/rending on MP10 non-elite farming right now, which will probably need to change once 1.08 hits. PhoenixRage - Community - Diablo III
