    After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    I have finally started to play (and enjoy) D3 again. A mixture of things led me to go back to WoW, however, I am finally ready to spend a few hours a day tackling my goal from launch: Killing Diablo in Inferno with a monk.

    A couple of things that I have noticed in the 4 or 5 months that I haven't been playing:
    -/players X is amazing Currently lvl54 with some twink gear and had little issue with the jar of soul event in hell with MP5. Looking foward to my next play at MP7.
    -The Ah is no longer the dismal array of 700dps rare weapons that it was... I've put together what I think will get my able to farm act1 inferno with 1 mill gold.
    -None of my old battle tag buddies are on
    -I think I saw a new mob in act1 (fields of misery)


    And of course I have some questions
    What are these "keys" I keep hearing about?
    Other than paragon levels, any other major changes?

    The couple hours that I have played recently were nice, and felt fresh. It may be that D3 has made some changes to add to the fun factor.

    Re: After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    Wb. You are the one that got me into playing monks and i can say that ive fell in love with monks. Im on my 4:th now and he went all the way solo every quest and killed diablo inferno never went away from a fight (level 22 paragon now). The game is easier now than it was before. Every death will learn you something well except from DC:s ofcourse.

    Could have been the keywarden in act 1 field of misery?

    In short keys and plan:
    There are 3 keys to find and one Plan (Inferno only). You need NV 5 and you increase the chance of them dropping by upping your players X. Keywarden locations are as follows:
    Act 1 Fields of Misery (Key of Destruction)
    Act 2 Dahlgur Oasis (Key of Hate)
    Act 3 Stonefort (Key of terror)
    Act 4 Silver Spire Level 1 (Infernal Machine Blacksmithing plan) This one is only needed once.

    Once your blacksmith learned the plan and you have the 3 keys he can construct the infernal machine for you for a fee of 12k.
    I havent found the plan as of yet. So i havent tried out fighting the überbosses. But there are 3 different pairs of bosses that you will encounter.
    King Leoric and Maghda
    Ghom and Rakanoth
    Siege breaker and Zoltan Kulle

    These can drop organs so you can build your own Hellfire ring which dont have a level requirement. Which is good for HC where we start new chars fairly often.

    Re: After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    As with the Keywardens dropping keys, the Uber bosses also will not drop organ parts needed to make a Hellfire ring unless you have 5 NV stacks. The drop rates for keys and organ parts are 5% chance on MP0, 10% chance on MP1 and up incrementally 10% each increase in Monster Power that you start the game with, with MP10 being a 100% drop chance. The Uber Bosses have enrage, and the places you fight them you are trapped until you kill them. Just like in D2, if you open up all three portals in one game you are assured of getting each of the three different boss pairs, and a chance at each organ type drop.

    Once you get into Inferno, progressing and farming is best done on MP0 for speed. The only reason to even play on higher MP is to increase your odds of getting key drops or organ drops. Note that MP1 bumps all monsters in Act I and Act II to lvl 63 so that difference is most noticeable in those acts. Of course by upping all the monsters to lvl 63 you increase the quality of their drops as well.

    But the best farming and Paragon experience gain is to run Act III on MP0.
    Eschew obfuscation!

    Re: After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    I made it to level 60, and even PL1! Haven't made it to inferno yet, will do act 4 tomorrow most likely. I did a MP5 hell azmodan run with minimal drama, them hulking beast pack put up a fight but failed to kill me.

    Glad my fanatic love of the monk class inspired you fantsyg, I hope to soon be joining you with a inferno D kill!

    And that hellfire key and ubers and all that sounds really cool. Once I down Diablo that will be my next goal and hope to get a ring good for a wizard.. that will be my next class to pursue after monk.

    my stats: (roughly 1.5mill spent)
    damage 14k
    hp 49k
    armor 4.1k
    all resist 933
    17% block
    10% crit :(
    0+ radius pick up (most annoying thing ever!)

    act 1 inferno should be cake.... and act2 might be do-able... only time i was in act2 was with a monk 440 all resist back in may.

    looking foward to the challenge!


    oh ya skills

    sweeping wind w/ blade storm (dont have enough crit chance for the tornados)
    blinding lash /w 4 second rune
    serenity with heal
    mantra convi w/ overawe (might change to evasion +armor in inferno)
    fight thunder + tele
    7 sided strike w/ tele + dmg


    hope this works out!

    Welcome back, I remember that you inspired me to keep pushing in Inferno back in the early days!

    This is actually really refreshing to read. I've been super burned out on the game lately and have been considering shelving it, but seeing other people excited about it definitely adds to my own excitement. Welcome back and keep reporting about how it's going. And if you have more questions, please feel free to ask. Lots of knowledgeable people here having logged many many hours since you were last playing.

    Re: After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    Welcome back :-)

    My 60(1) monk almost has the same stats as yours, killed the skeleton king last night. I wouldn't get cocky, I really rolled A4 Hell but I've already met one or two elite packs in A1 inferno which were quite nasty (I even had to use Serenity GASP ;-) ). My barb got killed in A1 before because I was overconfident, so stay on your toes..

    I think you could do with some more damage, especially for A2. I'm currently doing 16k and I'd prefer a bit more for end of A1 actually.

    Re: After a long hiatus... starting to play again!

    Well, turns out they are doing extended maintenance... how exciting!

    I was just about to enter the halls of agony to slay the butcher. The only thrill so far in A1 was when I pulled 2 elite packs of the charging bulls at once, not sure what affixes, def had vortex jailer and arcane. That was a fun little skirmish. Other than that, a1 has been a joke.

    The paragon system is awesome, not sure why I am so addicted to watching that exp bar fill up slowly

    I am working on DPS upgrades, but I also want to give act2 a shot as soon as possible. No fear!

    Also feel free to add me if looking for a monk to play with, hopefully soon I will pushing belail over and stepping into a3!

    So what you're saying is the best MF runs are in act3 on mp0? Like.. start a3 and go to what point? Killing azmodan?

    What kind of dps should I be aiming for to MF in a3 or even mp1+ in a1/2? 25k? 30k?

    I Killed Diablo Inferno with 20k dmg. A bit low for Act 3 and Act 4 champion packs but was doable. If going slow. My MF runs in Act 3 is as follows:
    Start the game with quest 6 Siegebreaker and sub quest kill the Siegebreaker.
    Run out from fort and do whole (light the beacons) this usually ends up with me having NV5. Keep on going and do the area after (with the catapults) heres the keywarden just make sure you have NV5 when killing the keywarden.
    After that i Jump to Breached keep level 1 and after that level 3. I skip level 2 as i dont want to meet the suicide bombers.
    Next Rakkis crossing. going backwards complete rakkis crossing and after that kill Siegebreaker and all the way down to Azmodan.
    Thats what I do in act 3.
