I wonder if the hotfix they applied today fixed the wiz exploit.

That was the intended result.

Invinci-Wiz patched, invinci-barb is the new flavour of the day.
Apparently if you charge into a boss fight that has a cut scene you retain that charge bonus (and rune effect) for each attack you do from there on.

So those WW tornado barbs get +195% weapon damage from the base charge bonus, plus one of (depending on rune choice) 2.5 second stun, increase to 283% dmg, +8 fury, or 8% max life regen.
PER HIT
So when you get 10-20 tornadoes flying around, each hitting 4 times a second, you get some pretty crazy results.

Can't wait to get home to try it out :D

So... with only reading the last few pages of this long thread.. what's everyones characters at?

Just started to play a monk... I've got a Barb, DH, and wiz at 60... wiz and DH are my main characters now for farming/progressing. My wiz is doing 30k dps with about 35-37k in health, dh is doing 36k dps w/o sharpshooter and has about 35k in health. I've moved both builds towards crit % and damage... crit chance are up to 29% and crit damage is 180%ish on the wiz, and 220-240% on the dh.

I have lvl60 Barb, DH, WD. I'm currently playing with a lvl42 Monk. The Monk's not bad as a fighter class, lots of useful skills. The funny thing when he says "aid me!" It sounds like "eat me!" :) I plan to try hardcore after I play through all the characters to Infernal Act 1.

Monk to 60 and DH to 60 so far. WD is my next project. Monk is the main farmer now and I am past raising the cats in act 3, so act 2 is on 5 NV farm now. Monk sits around 20k dps, 6k armour, 45k HP and 780 resists before buffs. Running IAS and 20% crit min for sweeping wind/blade storm. My crit damage is only 50% as I can't find a great replacement weapon with a socket. Have not played the DH in a few days but if I recall the dps is only around 49k with SS.

Drops still suck though, every iLvl 63 is a crap shoot, and I have not sold a single 1m gold item (let alone bought one) yet. Not sure how anyone buys anything worthy of act 4 gear on the AH when the prices are so silly. I have to leaf through pages of stupidly price 299,999,999g items to find upgrades now. It would be nice if Blizz could find a way to influence the pricing, since no one I know has spend 20m on an item in the AH.

A couple of the guys I play in a party with have sold a few items for 10-20 mil (set items & legendary/set rings)... I just sold my first item worth 2 mil.. a two handed axe with lots of stats and LoH.

What's your Act 2 path Dwayne?

You know you can just set your max buyout number right?
Set that to 1m or whatever your limit is then sort from high to low.

I hear you on prices though. For even a modest upgrade to my monk gear I'm looking at 5m per piece.

Highest value sale I've had was some shoulders with 240-ish str, vit and resist all which ended up selling for just under 9m. I had no idea what their value was so just opened bidding at 1m.

Had a few weapons that have sold for 4-5m, and an amulet with 580 LoH & 40% MF that sold for 3m (yeah, I WAY under-priced that one!)

In terms of characters, I have three 60's:
Monk was first, and is primary MF'er - going dual-wield life per spirit spent build
WD is stuck in act 3, waiting for better gear to proceed (so is monk actually)
Barb just hit act 1 inferno and is level 60

Got a DH and Wiz half way through act 1 normal...really need to go play those, but this WW barb is too much fun.

I start the level at the last quest so that Adria and Lea accompany me. Then I teleport to Black Canyon and hunt elites and champs for a 5 pack of NV then I kill Belial. Rinse and repeat.
