I started using some Ice Armor after James1v12's demonstration. I decided I could try it as well and attempt to push my survival rate on MP10 to as close to 100% as possible (without Unstable Anomaly).
I swear, everything has Extra Health affix...
Skill build is standard Living Lightning-based Hybrid Archon: click here.
Just instead of Energy Armor, Ice Armor - Crystallize is used instead. For me, personally, the difference between max stacked Ice Armor vs. Prismatic Armor is only a fraction of a percentage point (both approximately 94% total damage reduction). However, Ice Armor also comes with the benefits of reducing incoming melee damage by 12% and also can chill/freeze melee attackers to work with Cold-Blooded rune.
Give it a try.
And excuse the wonky resolution for the video. I encoded it with the wrong settings and was too lazy to redo everything.

Feb 9, 2013Reading the absurdity in the OP has dropped my IQ by a factor of ten. Pairing said absurdity with the word "theory" put me in a state of idiocy.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
I have to go read something intelligent to salvage what's left of my brain.
Jan 11, 2013For all you very mature people that like to whine like little girls.SW snapshot should not be taken away because that;s like the bulk of our dmg.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
What should get removed is that gear swap thingy.Once u engage in a battle your gear is locked or smth.
If they do remove snapshot I see some monks quitting, hell im para 88 and if they do that I wil for sure quit until they buff smth.Either they keep snapshot or they buff our dps by a lot.

You are right, of course but I think the discussion is a fair bit more complex..... The (subtle) point I was making is that as the player base dwindles, demand dries up and prices of the goodies I am finding is falling. Therefore it is taking a lot more time to generate in game gold compared to 3-6 weeks ago. Now, by rights, economic theory suggests that high end (BiS) item prices should also start to fall to meet the lack of gold being generated... BUT the fly in the ointment is that I think botters have seriously distorted the market place to the point that there is now a 2 tier market - the "haves" and the "have nots". Botters are generating enough gold (including great legendary drops) to be able to trade amongst themselves whilst the peeps (like me) struggle through requiring enormous hours to progress by very incremental margins! It was great to see the ban wave yesterday, lets hope it helps even the playing field, but I wonder how much damage is already done?
I am one of those tenacious types, so I'll keep grinding my way through but the vast majority of players are not as persistent and that imho is why we are seeing a very serious drop off in player numbers....

I believe MP4 and MP5 are the most efficient Monster Power levels to loot items. The math seems straight forward, and my unscientific in game play seems to confirm.
I would like to argue using my own personal unscientific evidence that playing the game on anything above MP1 for loot and XP is just silly. If you want to test the might of your character then by all means, play the game at MP5, or MP10 for that matter but if you are just going to loot and XP, then go for MP1. It's the fastest and most efficient way to farm... IMHO of course.

low damage roll =(
i think he is the only boss who gave me legendary EVER when i am starting to think act bosses never drops legendary. I even started to skip bosses because I get more legendaries from from keywardens (4-5 this week alone!)

Also, the official forum is so saturated with trolls and idiots that sometimes I can't help but go there to troll the troll posts. It's such a disgusting cesspool of human scum. I pretty much go to the official forum just to put up "WTS" offers.
Nov 7, 2012Same, beer, heavy metal and diablo 3 at the end of the day to unwind. Plus i love gaining DPS, the hunt for items, making that gold, buy/selling in the auction house. Oh, and killing monsters is fun I guess tooPosted in: Diablo III General Discussion
