finding if difficult to find any physi res + all res, or simply a good all res equip to pull myself above 500 i am keeping my eye open on the forums for trades and the AH but no luck yet, im currently farming Act3 Hell, havnt tried to progress in Act4 yet past the libary of fate, played around up there without much trouble though.#=
i have heard of peopel starting inferno with worse stats but im just over-cautious and would like a general consensious of if you guys and gals would view this as ready or where i should go to improve (other than resists)
You can do and complete Act 1 if you're fairly adept at handling tough situations. I would say 600 AR is about the point where you start to feel really tough, and 700-800 AR is when you're pretty much un-killable provided that you don't botch something really hard (I'm talking about disconnecting while standing on the balls of 5 Arcane beams).
Go for Transcendence instead of Combination Strike so you can spam your abilities to heal yourself, and maybe consider Mantra of Conviction if you're feeling that things are a little too easy.
Thanks for the tip on the berserkers there Korn, i will keep my wits about me with those, aswell as everything else. i am a very slow player in terms of progressing i.e. i have no problem (and enjoy!, thats right enjoy!) farming the same part over and over to gear up.
the first time i really had a close call was in hell Act1 where i got too cocky and waded into a cellar and blocked myself in...managed to kite well enough to spot a root out but man, my heart was thumping! so safe to say i will be staying out of any blue shiny holes for a while
making 100% certain i have an esacpae root or use the bridges against the charging beats of death in the fields as there my pet hate, infact i might even chicken out at that point.
if the first part goes well then ill slowly go deeper but i think if im managing to get the fields of strife (or w/e there called) done without having a few heart attacks then ill farm that part for a little while, hopefully get the res over 500 atleast, eventually.
No, he is quite awesome to be honest. A monk friend of mine got into inferno like three weeks ago and struggled alot tanking in a 3/4 man group. Picking the Earth Ally helped him alot. In a Act I farming run he might needed to resummon him once or twice.
