    I'm level 49 now and finishing up Act 3 on Nightmare. I've been doing it solo so that I could get more XP, but it just takes sooooooo long to clear through all the trash. I hate leaving a map that hasn't been 100% discovered. Found some great high DPS weapons lately, so I have been putting them to GREAT use.

    New to the franchise, and haven't had a lot of time to play so far, but I am LOVING it! This is the kind of game that makes me long for more free time!

    What's everyone's battle tags? As I said, I'm not too far into the game yet, but I'd love to start building our friends lists and getting some co-op games going!

    Pip#1962 is mine.

    Feel free to add me and put that you are from AF in the message.

    I don't get a ton of time to play, but I am more than happy to group with whoever if I am on. :)

    Lmfao, tell me about it. All my buddies have moved onto Inferno, so I'm stuck playing on my own. My play time is going to take a massive cutback starting today, so it's going to be a while before I even hit 60. I'm about halfway through 52 on (beginning) A1 of Hell.

    I wouldn't worry too much about lack of playtime. Here's the new Diablo3:

    Act1: Fight the maintenance server boss to login to Diablo
    Act2: Fight the ability to patch game boss endless loop
    Act3: Fight the euEN usEN boss
    Act4: Fight the stuck at login screen retrieving your hero boss


    YOU HAVE DIED

    I have yet to have any of the issues you just described. In fact, I had my very first lag stutter last night while playing, but it lasted all of like 2 seconds and that was that. I really have zero issues while playing D3.

    Blizz must really not like you folks lol.

    Gotta love Blizzard patch days....


    It wouldn't let me log in for quite a while tonight, but I was able to after I left to do something else for a couple of hours.

    Lol, I'm convinced that Blizzard has a grudge against some of you. I logged on at about 9 PM last night w/o any issues.

    I hate that it puts you in general chat. Now I have to deal with all those clowns trying to sell fake gold and child porn, but I did meet a cool guy who gave me a bunch of free items.

    Yeah, I immediately leave general chat. Ugh.

    Also really my issues haven't been that bad, and having played wow for years (recently quit for good) I am used to patch day bugs and inconveniences.

    Hmm, I've never been in general chat, and I don't get automatically placed in it either.

    Also, while I don't think I've had as much trouble with lag as NoNameFace, I usually have a good bit of stutter when I first log in. It also tends to slow down when I run into my first group of monsters (I've died from this a few times). However, I usually attribute this to trying to run a very heavy-graphics game on a laptop.

    EDIT: Ahh, I see, the new patch automatically puts you in general chat. That's annoying.

    I don't know, I typically get that slow down on the first mob too and I always put it down to lag rather than my PC not keeping up.

    Still in Act 3. Might be the last person who bought the game on release day and hasn't beaten it yet. XD

    Lol, dang. It's ok though. I've been stuck at level 52 and A1 on Hell for a while now since I haven't had time to play.

    Granted, I'm much much further along, but my DPS is nearly 7K. I believe it's 6975.06. At least that is what it was the last time I checked, which was last night.

    Wow!! Thanks for sharing your build. I've got a monk (lvl 24, Act 2 normal) and appreciate the look into what you've done! Just wish I had more time to play!

    Wow! Are you a Monk as well? Did you get your weapon from the AH or in-game?
    No problem. Enjoy the rest of the game!

    You know what I'm just realizing, I haven't found any legendaries yet! NYCHitman, what Act/difficulty did you find yours?
