so basically i bought an item in the auction house but i didnt receive it, i also sold a few items but doesnt show the money to stash it, i guess my wand and money are wondering on the limbo ill give it time maybe it will sort out.
The AH was laggy earlier, I tried to send an item to my stash - still not there.
Foes weapon power or int influence your arcane powered abilities?

All damaging abilities are based on weapon damage which is then modified by your primary stat. So both.
Ed: And this applies to all classes, casters and otherwise
ed2: Item I bought in the AH 6 hours ago just appeared, so... it hasn't swallowed your money, just wait

So I'm farming the Butcher on Act 1 on Inferno, trying to get decent gear for either myself or another class so I can sell on the AH, but I'm getting crap drops, the thing is it's not just a case of poor stats, it seems the item levels are really low too, stuff for lower levels etc, generally low stats etc.
Anyone had an success doing this? Got any decent items?
Djakku: Yeah, the AH neccesarily means that drops are going to be lower than we would want or are used to from say... WoW. The amount of gear accessible at any given time is much more than D2, so drop rate of really great stuff is comparatively lower as a result. However, I've been farming Act I as well for some time and must say I've geared up quite nicely. A few legendaries, one that I'm using and another I managed to sell. The thing about Act I farming is that it's not so much grinding for that one specific piece of armor that will do well for YOUR class, but rather generating income. The entire concept of Act I inferno is to start the process of gaining some money, sell good drops from other classes that you get so that you can buy good gear for your class, then progress to act II. Include the occasional legendary or set piece that drops in Act I, and there you go.
The drops can be quite awesome, just don't expect any ilvl60+ items. They won't drop.
Call me a conspiracy nerd, but it seems like gear you need, drops at a higher difficulty level, or in a later act. Forcing you to generate gold, and buy from the AH. Once RMAH hits, all the good items will be sold on that instead of for gold, securing a revenue stream for Blizzard. It's like they wear there entire business strat on their sleeves ^^
i have been farming that same act, and while a lot of the drops are total shit, some of them are amazing. for instance, i got a fucking level 60 legendary from a god damned barrel. yes, a barrel. it had correct stats for a demon hunter, and is worth anywhere from 600k to the millions, depending on the level of retard on the AH.
but i run these farming sessions with 3 other friends, and we always give each other the stuff that counts for our classes. it's really wierd sometimes, as i always get fucking demon hunter gear, while another always fucking gets monk gear, etc. i'm not sure there is anything to this, but it's what i've noticed. in the end, after a few days of this run, we have found ourselves downing that butcher fucker faster and faster. while act 2 still rapes us, there is definitely an improvement among us all, in both "skill" and in gear.
so yeah, run it with friends who are willing to share, have a diverse group composition, and clear every area out completely. stick with the butcher part of act 1, lorics's passage or w/e it's called, i believe it's section 8 of act 1, and just farm the fuck out of it. smash every barrel, unturn every stone. i swear.
plus you get a ton of gold, so you can eventually buy the pieces you are missing if you so dare.
oh and another tip that has worked for us is to have a magic set for everyone. when you see the treasure pigmy dude, or a resplendent chest, have everyone load up MF gear. he isn't hard to kill and it's so worth it. if you have a barb with the magic find shout, you should definitely spam that. we also do the MF gear thing for the jailer warden guy. he actually drops a ton of shit for some reason, and is easy to down with bad MF gear.
tldr: farm act 1, you can definitely get level 60 stuff, even legendary. i swear.
You can get legendaries anywhere, but the set pieces are the lvl 60 stuff that are confirmed to drop in Act I.
Also, for the struggling melees in act 2: There is a very clear threshold of gear at one point when you can progress. Yesterday I got raped by every form of elite. Tried it again today with two new pieces of gear and I got 5 stacks and downed Maghda without dropping below 75% health (as a monk).
Very happy, feels like a real step up after the past few weeks of failing miserably in Act 2.
So, in terms of itemization, is there any reason NOT to just stack Primary Stat, Vitallity and Lifesteal Per Hit?
Current adapted build from previous post is: Keen eye, sweeping wind/mystic ally (depends on solo or not), flash, breath and serenity. Overawe or hard target, depending on situation.
Only really have trouble with heavy buffed snake champions, mostly because those guys hit crazy hard in inferno.
Progressed normally up to Kulle now, continueing tomorrow because tired.
Do you end up primarily kiting with Deadly reach or is it, blow CDs in melee range, then get out and wait for CDs again.
I've sort of given up with Act 2 progression currently as I've not gotten any decent loot to sell/use from Act 1 so I'm fairly "soft" even with 8.5k armor, 13k DPS and 400 resists.
Does anyone have a Starter Edition Key please - my GF want's to test it (harhar) on her laptop.
No. A Rhinoceros is not a fat Unicorn.
