I am using Act I Hell to level my character to 60. I'm pretty well geared, with lowest level gear being rings at level 45 (I'm level 56 now).

This makes for good gold farming. I haven't really found many rares or legendaries recently that I can use, but sometimes it's easier to spend 10-30k on an item that is my level and has the stats I need, with no compromises.

Once I hit 60, I'll start shopping for legendaries. I may have to try farming Whimseyshire.

Well I'm in Act 1 Hell and it's a little easier now that I bought a higher dps weapon off general chat. Also bought a belt that is int/vit/mf so I'm up to 18% now. I just need to farm some more gold and buy some more gear like that and I'll be ready to farm.

Argh...3 bars into level 59, and must wait through the work day to get home...and -maybe- get to 60.

I hit 54 last night IIRC. I bought a bunch of gold find gear for 2-3k each and will be farming regular whimsyshyre tonight to get gold to buy some MF gear to farm NM whimsyshyre to finish gearing up for hell. I beat the butcher last night solo in hell only dying once, but definitely need to get some better gear. I just don't have 100-950k to buy new pieces with. Still wearing level 26 pants and a 28 ring.

Yes, you need to beat diablo on each difficulty before upgrading the staff to that specific difficulty

Magic Find gear really is not worth it at all. I watched a live stream of Athene (one of the top D3 players in the world) where he had 400+ Magic Find and killed Diablo on Inferno. All of it was trash gear, nothing special at all. He also did Inferno Whymsire with 400+ MF and did not get anything other than blue gear from the clouds (chests) and nothing but crappy rares from the elite packs.

You're much better off just farming for gold. The best way to do this is go get to 60, get some decent cheap gear, and then farm Whymshire on Hell with 5 stacks of Nephalem Valor. This gives you 15% MF and Gold Find per buff, max of 5. You get 1 stack per elite pack or rare (blue or yellow names). With a 5 stack, you're also guaranteed to get to get extra loot from bosses, so farming Butcher on Hell pretty good, too.

You can find decent gear for sub 100k most of the time, you just have to shop around. Until you really want to start progressing through Act 2 Inferno, you can get away with 25-30k health and minimal resistances if you can kite well enough. Once you get good enough gear, you can farm Inferno Butcher with 5 stacks of NV to try and farm gear instead of gold.

I've noticed a substantial increase in blues when I wear my 149% MF set when compared with my DPS set. I've been running Act 1 repeatedly for XP and gold farming, and I sell all blues and almost all yellows immediately now. I pull in a lot more gold from sold blues/yellows with MF than without..

GF does affect gold drop, I'm sure...and it may be you pull in more per run just on gold. I pick up ALL things that drop (whites & greys too), and when I fill up, I go sell. I would guess I've been picking up 6-8 extra blues per run, and maybe 1 more yellow on average with my MF set. That's about 2500 more gold from items,

Picking up white and grey items is a waste of time. They all sell for less then 20 gold each. It also doubles or triples your trip to the vendor and makes your farming run that much longer. I stopped picking them up about halfway through Act 1 on normal.

Point is, I can easily see the ratio of blue items I get at high MF does make a difference as far as how often blues drop. By a substantial amount. When I go out, and over 1/2 my drops are blues...compared with 1/4 or 1/3 without...it's noticable.

Just cleared normal last week.

Currently lvl 41 monk, working my way through Act 2 in Nightmare.

It seems to me that act 2 is the "gear check" for each difficulty level. I've heard that Inferno is incredibly hard for monks/melee, so I will likely do SK runs on nightmare and hell to farm and get level 60 if I don't reach said level by the end of hell.

Hoping to have about 20 mil by the time I start working on act II inferno.

Anyone else disappointed by the blacksmithing system? Spent about 300k getting to level 5 and still cant make anything useful.

Having a blast so far though, love this game. Once I get up to higher levels I'll post up my info to join some co-op with you guys!
