@lord_mayak: Gotcha. Thanks for the clarification.
@OP: Tangentially, I want to emphasise on the importance of focusing on level 84-94 gear, because you’ll never outlevel those guys.
@Anonymous918: Maybe we’ll have to agree to disagree here. I’m fairly certain that if I deleted all my saved data, got rid of GDstash, and played self-found, I’d be able to whip up a pretty decent farming build in about a week, and without spending 24/7 slouched over my laptop.
When it comes to farming/item acquisition, I think an understanding of game mechanics, and knowing how to maximize what you actually have is far more efficient than trying to find ways of getting things you don’t have.
EDIT: Of course it’s unreasonable to expect newer players to have that level of understanding. And of course many (myself included) may want to experience the unforgiving world of GD without guidance. That’s all fine IMO.
Play GD however tf you wish to play it!
The 2 points I’m trying to make is this:
- The game is not as item dependent as people make it out to be (heck, people have beaten it without using any masteries!)
- If you believe items are the solution to everything, you’re only setting yourself up for disappointment
