[lots of stuff]
Cheers, I don't go around on D3 forums or anything so hard to see what the base line is meant to be.
I was thinking I had half-decent gear (for the earliest entry-level into Inferno) but lacking in skillz, but those stats are way
above mine, yeah I'm Barb. If I lose the gold find stuff I'm at, before powers:
420/sec regen life
5.6% life steal
19% block chance
23% dodge chance
66% dmg reduction (armour)
~260 average resistances
Trouble is, trying to nudge those stats up on the AH costs insane gold. Even gear with lesser
affixes at lvl60 costs 5x as much as my lvl56-58 stuff. To get real gear it's in the millions.
I only have 1.3m gold and sack loads of loot that isn't great so may or may not sell at all on the AH.
FWIW, putting back on the high GF gear my gold find on Hell goes to about 185% with 5 nephalem valour and it was definitely bringing in a ton more than I can do on Inferno. The basic gold drop doesn't seem to be noticeably higher in the early parts of Inferno yet in Inferno it's unrealistic to be able to get that nephalem stack going, and in Hell I can rip through everything in half the time and not die.
I'm thinking that whilst going for gold worked better than magic find up to lvl60, in the last bit of Hell the nephalem valour kicked in and suddenly rares drop like candy. Plus at these prices one decent Inferno drop would obliterate the gold found in the time?
My guess at this point is I'd probably have to farm Hell gold for a bit in order to make entry-level into Inferno, where I switch to farming for rares.
But I'm not sure I can be bothered coming home from work (which is really heavy-going at the moment) and doing that, and sure as shit I'm not going to hit the RMAH.
edit: also I think lag is a problem as yesterday I couldn't even kill a goblin. I had him down to a sliver of health then he ran off, stopped again, and even though I was mashing away at him, he opened his portal and buggered off.
