Congrats! Get crafting amulets though - shouldn't take too long to get an upgrade to that.

I crafted this the other day, and while it wasn't a big dps upgrade the armour roll of all things sure helped a lot: Baron Sting | Diablo 3 DPS & EHP Calculator

I don't believe in crafting at all tho.. I blew through 40 mil gold when that patch first came out. Never had a single good roll. Same thing with the hellfire ring , I made 35 so far and none of them rolled Crit Chance . I just don't think crafting is worth it right now

Fair enough.

For me to buy an amulet that's better than my craft would be hundreds of millions of gold which I don't have, and after 2 months of shopping I finally got a ring that was better than my hellfire for under 50m. It goes without saying that crafting shoulders & bracers will eventually result in a BiS roll (except for possibly a perfectly rolled set of lacuni's, but again that's billions if you can even find them on the gold ah)

I'm mostly doing HC now and it would be impossible to not craft as the prices are mega high for anything good.

How is D3 fairing now a days? I haven't touched it since a few months before paragon levels came out. With some expansion rumors/announcements its kinda got me a little interested again, at least to get my paragon levels done so I'm not way behind come the expo.

Gameplay is fine - you can customize your difficulty now with the addition of monster power which is nice.

Itemization still sucks though. Chances are you'll have to hit up the gold AH to get any upgrades other than the craftable bound on account pieces unless you're (1) REALLY poorly geared, or (2) insanely lucky.

So...go play something else then?

I'm having fun ticking off personal milestones.

First was a character of each class that could solo MP10.
Currently it's getting each of them to 200k dps unbuffed. Just knocked off monk earlier today so just WD and wiz to go (barb & DH were stupid easy compared to monk - esp with no Nats/EF/mempho and a WKL)

I started to get bored with HC but was in the same boat as you Greg was just trying to paragon, and get one of each class, then started to try to get them have a nice DPS

It also got harder though since I have 4 accounts for multiboxing purposes.

Now I'm big into HC, so far have 4 WD's at 60 none hit for over 70k though so lots of work there but so hard to get/make HC money.

Also working on Wiz (have 1 lvl 60), Monk, Barb, (will leave DH for last I'm quite sure).

Also been a big thing lately with a bunch of people going around PK'ing users (not sure how this works but I guess they wait for people to join their game and are in a huge mess of monsters then when you port in your screwed? At least that's what I'm presuming is happening which is sad because HC it takes a long time to get to 60, plus gear etc and one death you lose everything :(
