Anyone pooling resources for a "team" BS?

styles74styles74 Bloomfield Hills, MIPosts: 222Member

 

I'd really like to do this, and I have a group of friends playing that I'm trying to designate one for a BS.

Does this make sense?  What are your thoughts on a "team" BS for getting better items faster?

If so, what exactly needs to be passed over to the "team" BS to level his skill?  Gold and Mats only?

I'm rolling a DH to start, and I know they're very very dependant on their weapon.  (more so than Monk, Barb... supposedly b/c they only have a couple options (bow, xbow) where the other melee classes have a bunch)

This assumes that the designated BS is someone we know personally and trust.

Thanks!

    It's cool and all but this isn't a MMORPG.

    Progressing ASAP shouldn't be your goal Oo

    Actually it's funny that you mention it... b/c rushing is totally NOT my goal!

    I appreciate the reminder too.. b/c my post sure sounds like it doesn't it??

    I guess I want to just rock stuff hard with a bad ass bow.  But I am not, I repeat NOT going to rush through this content.  If anything I've waited so long I want to savor the experience as much as possible.

    You've almost got me wanting to cancel my plans now...

    I think that having a pimped out blacksmith might cause you to get gear that's "too good" for the content you are going through and it might simplify the game a bit for your first run. I assume the idea behind the blacksmith is that you can get your "alts" levelled easier than the first time around more than actually equipping the main character with crafted items.

    I could also be wrong but I don't know how important crafting will actually be coming the harder difficulties. The diffculty of diablo 3 most likely is designed around mainly using the equipment you find along the story and anything that makes your gear better (AH/RMT-AH/Crafting) will probably make it easier and easier 8)

    Since the BS level is per account instead of per character won't most people cap off their own BS fairly easy?

    It seems much more convenient to just level up your own.

     

    Edit: Forgot to mention that in the Beta I had my BS able to create items that I was way too low a level to even use. Not sure if the same will happen on release.

     Actually you can melee a DH but why would you is a bigger question. They can carry a sword and board and do have a few skills unrelated to ranged such as traps.

    I am going to play SC for awhile until I get the feel of the game and than going HC.  Probably not going to rush it because I want to enjoy the story at least once.

    Just level your own BS. The good part happens when you trade gear with each other. You may make some weapons and get +20 int while your friend makes one with +19 str.. it'll usually work in your favor to have a diverse play group for this purpose.

    Min/maxing? It's beginning to look alot like Diablo...

  • ProfRedProfRed Duluth, GAPosts: 3,511Member

    I know of people putting teams together for HC.  Basically planning on optimizing MF, and sharing loot amongst themselves.  Progressing as a tight knit team.  It will take skill in the later levels, staying close together, working on boss strategies, and if one member dies they can assist him getting back up to speed while farming his new gear for him.

    It will take a close group, but this is probably the best way to tackle the later difficulties in hardcore.  If it is softcore it can be much more casual and probably less sharing.  Best bet is to join a guild and look for like minded people.
