In Inferno with my Wiz.

Doing Sarkoth/Dank Cellar runs in full MF/GF gear. Using teleport with wormhole cellar takes a little over a minute to clear if it has spawned, if it hasn't it only takes like 30 seconds to reload game and teleport again from checkpoint. Wash/rinse/repeat!

I'd be making killer gold if I could sell gems and disenchants in AH.

I been doing this for some time and since graduated to doing straight up sk runs because that is so not fun. Unfortunately I'm at the point where even Butcher is not offering me any upgrades. I'm kind of stuck as I can't solo past SK and butcher isn't giving me any ups so I figure I'm just going to have to upgrade from the AH. Everyone keeps telling me stack resist for inferno don't worry about any other stats.

I've finally grind my way to lvl 60 with my female DH, currently in Hell act3. I have to use the AH quite alot. Those monster 3 packs are killers. they force you to use the AH all the time. The occasional rare drops are simply to weak and not at your level. searching the AH can be tedious, the filters are not adequate. the auctions are a joke, I mean by the time I win the bid in 2 days, I would be 5 levels higher making them obsolete.

I use the AH to sell some small stuff for cheap (still a lot better than selling it to merchants :P). I never bought something so far, but my barb has weak dps haha. I'm at lvl 57 and just finished the blackstone quest in Act II. Looking forward to finally finish Hell!

Heh... what do you consider a "weak" DPS for a lvl 57 hell barb? I'm currently Act 1 hell lvl 57 and doing around 1600 DPS w/ 2% damage back to life. I've started trying to focus on resistance as it's critical for the later points in the game, however I suspect I should consider dumping my legendary armour for something slightly closer to my level.

Well..found a 270 dps axe, so with my current strengh, I'm doing around 3200 dps. It's okay when I'm solo, but with 3 other players...it's more challenging. I'm also trying to get more resist, just found a good pair of glove yesterday with +22 to all resist.

I'm waiting for lvl 60 to actually shop in the AH for a better DPS weapon with IAS for my frenzy

1600 dps is pretty low to be honest. I went in hell with at least 12k on my DH. I'm at 25k now. Wait until 60 to drop gold on a weapon. 500 to 600 dps weapons will run from 150k to 350k

Well... I found no legendary items so far (Hell Act II). I have two friends who found 1 each...but in normal so they were useless

Is that a one handed axe? 270 is pretty damn good if it is, my sword is around 180.

That's with a DH though, and points to one of the main reasons there are so many complaints about character imbalances between the ranged and melee characters.

Strangely enough, contrary to most itemization complaints, I'm actually finding the occasional drop that's worth looking at, and find that the levels are fairly well balanced for difficulty / drops. When I hit a "wall" (every elite I run into is pretty well one or two shotting me) that doesn't appear to be just a bad roll of the random bad guys, I find that dropping back to the previous quest is doable, and seems to drop level appropriate gear.

We'll see how the rest of hell goes.... I absolutely refuse to use the AH so I may not be able to play Inferno at all.
