Still cant farm act 2 without dying too much, but have spent most of my money lately on trying to get act 3 to the point where I dont die with full gear. Starting to think that the latency is playing too big of a part. I have 1.1k resists, 58k health and 11k defence but I just cant beat a big pack of monsters. Thats all with 15k base dps. Ghom was hard, but ended beating him after changing my skills around, but then I cant kill much when I go out to kill the stupid balista and catapults. Might just rush through and kill azmodan then diablo. Bosses are easy, I shouldnt have much problem with them imo.
I just played for about 2-3 hours in act 2 now without dying, typically die once or twice. Picked up the square root of sweet FA mind.
Haven't tried going high magic find. My normal gear did give me 101% basic MF and 70% gold. Lost about 20-25% MF since then with upgrades.

I mistyped, i meant to say can not cant. Did two full farm runs in act 2 after that post and didnt die at all and twice I came up against two packs at once which I handled easily.
I really doubt its my skills, have been looking at some items on the market that change my skills around a bit, I was going to buy one buy hit bid instead of buyout. Was probs because of the bourbon. After I buy that I think another 2 or 3 million will push me well above the recommended stats to finish act 3 which should cover for the latency.
Why are people having trouble with Ghom, is there a nasty enrage, extra inferno attack or something?
I had to change one skill and then I killed him so easily. For Barbarians it seems easy, for me anyway, my LoH had no problem keeping up with the damage. I assume the ranged classes would struggle alot more.
My brother who is a DH who struggles in Act 2 came into the ghom fight the second time and he died pretty early in. The fight took well over 5 minutes for me to tank him in which time his enrage timer would have went off though I never noticed any increase in damage.
So, got up to Diablo.... I have no problem until you go into the shadow realm. Then he just messes me up. Might need to rethink my strategy on him.
Yea I heard the second phase is the tough one. Shadow clones and Diablo's teleporting. Seems like there are a few strategies out there that'll work for those.

Oh forgot to ask, have you been on inferno Whimsyshire?
Can't wait for Act 2 Inferno, Act 1 has been crazy easy so far thanks to free gear #bestfriendsforeverxx
