Diablo® III

Newyear giveaway: 2 gearsets

Update1:
signup for the raffle ends at 31.12. at 12:00 (UTC+01:00)

about set 2: 1,3m left to spend. when the set is done i gonna close that "extraentry-guess"-thingy, because i gonna do testruns etc, so it will show up in my profile anyways.
------
Update2:
set2 is kinda done. all slots are bought, but i only have spent 8,8m yet. so i might try to replace some stuff, if i find suiting items on the AH.
stats archived so far (NO follower, OWE+STI passive, on my monk):
- 36177 HP
- 632 resist
- 5088 armor
- 22% movementspeed
anyways, no matter if i replace stuff or not, i gonna close the option to gain extra entries in the raffle by guessing the DPS soon, because i want to start testrunning the set.
--------
Update3:
Set2 completely done now. i did buy a second pair of boots, that puts me slightly offtarget, but i am still close enough to my targets to call it acceptable:
Stats (OWE+STI passive, NO follower, NO buff, on my monk):
- 34,5k HP
- 590 resist
- 5126 armor
- 5,7% lifesteal
- 100,5k dps
- 10,4m spent (rounded up, first boots calculated in)
chance to gain extra entries with guessing the result dps is closed now tho. gonna start testrunning the set now. however, you can STILL enter the raffle.
btw, the first boots give the stats from "update2" and 97,1k dps - for 8,8m spent.

greetings fellow monks,

i am about to give away two monk gearsets (and promote my YT guide a bit along the way =P).

  • set 1:

  • info:
  • its more a starter pack than just a set. it contains almost all the items i did buy for the exampleset i did kill MP5 ubers with in my YT guide - i gave away some items already, the remaining items are able to farm MP1-5 just fine, just MP5 ubers wont be an option anymore (solo tho, group should be fine). you can pick your setup kinda depending on your need of sustain, so you can kinda "grow into" the higher dps options of the set.

  • stats (depending on your paragon and what items you pick):
  • - 45-50k HP (no vit gems)
    - 680 resist
    - 4,5k armor (with STI+enchantress)
    - 35-45k dps
    - sustain depending on setup: 500ish LoH or 1400ish LoH or 5,7% lifesteal
    - 12% movementspeed

  • how to get set 1?:
  • just post your profile here and say you want it. i must consider the starter pack an upgrade for you tho and it helps, if i dont get the impression that gold is coming out your ears. i rather make someone. who is actually struggling on his main, happy, than to just stuff a barely played alt of someone.
    who gets the set will be decided by random.org then.

  • set 2:

  • info:
  • this will be the example-set i gonna use for my "how to build dps" part of my YT guide. its not done yet. the budget i gonna use in total is 10mil (might go slightly over budget tho, if i dont find satisfying stuff in a reasonable time). i will not build the set _all out_ on dps and will go for some minimal markers.

  • minimal aim stats i gonna make sure to have (on my monk):
  • - 35k HP (with the option to reach it by socketing amethysts with 0 paragon)
    - 600 resist
    - 4,5k armor (with STI)
    - dps: ???
    - sustain/healing: enough to make me think, that MP5 ubers are possible solo
    - 24% movementspeed

  • how to get set 2?:
  • post your profile here and say you want it. if i consider the set an upgrade for you, then you will get into the rafflelist. ppl who are subs of my YT channel will get 5 entries into the list (dont forget to post your YT name then), therefore increasing the chance of winning. ppl who are already subs right now, will get extra entries.
    you can post your guess at what dps the set gonna end up with the 10m budget and the given minimal markers. whoever gets the closest to the endresult will get 10 extra entries on the raffle list.
    in the end random.org will draw the winner.

    gl and happy hollidays!

    Stumbled across this post and was glad to see the cheerful intention - thx in advance!
    I would be glad to call set 1 or 2 my own, not to mention i want it, too :)

    Hit yesterday 60 with my monk - started playing D3 like a month ago, tried to farm some things with my demonhunter for it, but atm just havent that much money to buy much viable.

    If anybody will be in greater need tho, please chose them - time and skill will tell if I'll get by ^^

    The DPS for set 2 could be around 85k - as always just a guess.

    hey WhiteVirus, you must have taken a wrong turn somewhere and ended up on the EU forums. sorry, but i cant do a giveaway on US.
    short pointers tho: you got the gearset of your DH i assume and got lots of allresist, so you dont need OWE passive. if you want to keep it that way, then dps upgrades will be very expensive. you got 4,6% lifesteal as sustain only, if i am not mistaken. with your current setup and dps that should be ok for MP1-3 ish. you should make some changes at your spec tho, to utalize more effective dps.
    change crippling wave to FoT/thunderclap, the rune on MoC to overawe (submissions scales from wep dmg and fast weps have lower dmg ranges than slow weps, so submission is not the optimal pick for fists). i personally prefer ascension on serenity, but thats preferance, whatever works best for you. exploding palm is more a high MP option due to the high HP mobs have there, so maybe switch it to blind with the dmg boost rune to scale sweaping winds higher and have some CC.
    switch guardians path to resolve. with resolve you will take more hits, but for less dmg, that makes the inc dmg less spiky and lets you handle it better.
    near death exp. passive you could change to combination strike to get 8% more dmg.

    i show a bit how to handle certain elite affixes with the cookie cutter spec, maybe that helps you out.

    hey Brownlips, you did post on your wow char. either click on the little arrow next to your name and switch it to D3 or post your monk link directly. =)
