How to Get +2,324% Gold Find (Revised)

Last week I wrote an article about how to get +541% Gold Find and it wasn’t long before people were commenting and sending me e-mails telling me I had it all wrong. What I tried to do was add up the maximum amounts of Gold Find for each item slot to speculate as to what […]

Cheating in Diablo 3

The topic of cheating has come up in many different circles around the Diablo 3 community. I’ve seen people talking about it at DiabloFans, IncGamers and just about every other major D3 forum. The question originates from the fear of Diablo 3 turning into another Diablo 2. In the old Diablo duping and cheating was […]

Demon Hunter Farming Build

It’s time to sit down and take a look at the various skills and runes available to help us farm in the live version. You can literally sit for hours looking at the Battle.net Skill Calculator, tinkering with Skill Runes and different active and passive skill combinations. What’s the best Demon Hunter farming build? I […]

Farming Subtle Essence (Again)

Yes, I know. I’ve already given you 2-3 ways to farm Subtle Essence. This is yet another strategy from DonReader and once again sits among the best and fastest ways to farm Subtle Essene (or any essence for that matter). At some point I’m going to have to compare all these methods careful to determine […]

Should you Farm in D3?

The other day a reader commented and asked if it would even be worth it to use these farming methods or if it would just be more valuable to progress through the game normally. The importance of discovering these methods is not to reuse them exactly in the live version of Diablo 3 or even […]

How to get +541% Gold Find

When it comes to farming gold we’ve established some pretty accurate and reliable numbers in the beta. We’re stuck around 20,000-25,000 gold/hr without building a specific set of gear to optimize that. In the beta, with a ton of gold, you could put together a set between 200-250% Gold Find. This is an estimate since […]

Farming Manglemaw – 100+ Subtle Essence / hr + 190 gold/minute

Thanks to a follower of Diablo 3 Artisans, DonReader, I’ve got the fastest way to farm gold and magic items in the Diablo 3 beta. This one is really good. How do I know it’s the fastest? Not only does it produce over 100 Subtle Essence PER HOUR but you will also find 190 gold […]

Farming Subtle Essence – Patch 14 – Captain Daltyn

I’ve really tested 4-5 different methods to farming in the beta. There’s the crypts farming which everyone raves about for which I haven’t done a video on yet. There’s farming Captain Daltyn, Mira Eamon and Royal Crypts. The best one I found in Patch 13 was Captain Daltyn. With the Demon Hunter you can get […]
