Exactly -- I have 2 toons in standard that could seriously use this money.

The whole point of leagues is to exploit the cheap economy for standard. Items that won't sell in standard are worth a few chaos in leagues and the more expensive items are significantly cheaper simply due to the lower total currency available.

STARTING maps at 75? I'm level 79 and am running T4/5 maps quite routinely.

Drops seem to vary day by day. I mean some days it's just crazy with high value orbs everywhere and orange as far as the eye can see. Then other days it's just yellows and alts. Drives me nuts.

I gotta get my hands on more whetstones though. I got 2 pages of hammers to upgrade.
I overleveled when I had many attempts in the first Lab in Normal.
However like Smackababy said, Dried lake is well worth farming for XP.
I also had only 3 maps drop by level 70 until some person handed me a variety of maps.
Another thing is that the XP is Merciless Lab is quite good and lots to kill :)

And today I learned... You can use Fortify and Melee Splash with Stone Golem. The amusement factor is increasing every day.

Fortify is amazing on non-flame golems. Huge survivability increase. Fortify + minion life + minion resists and golems just rarely die.

Golems do shit for damage so sadly stuff like melee splash are not worth the sockets.

Wait... what?
Yeah. Exactly my initial thought. I've been farming Aquaduct/Normal (c'mon RNG, just a couple more Humility...), and the damage my golem is putting out now is silly. To be fair, I'm a bit over-leveled for the zone now (I think I'm in the low 40's now?), but it's still silly.

Also, keep in mind... Fortify is a damage boost as well as survivability.

I actually might drop flame golem and pick up this combo.

Was planning on adding enfeeble to my blasphemy/enlighten/curse link but mana is a problem still.

LOVE my Stone Golem. (and I haven't even tried this fortofy option yet)

If anyone wants a (near) fully leveled Stone Golem gem I got one for ya. I just replaced my lvl19 for a lvl18 6% quality (7% damage increase)

Toss it in the guild stash and I'll pick it up.

Anyone have experience with the scepter that ads iron will and 1% dmg per 8 strength? Was considering dropping a shockwave totem with culling strike and item rarity into one.

I'm currently running a similar 4l mf flame totem in a geofris

So Caustic Arrow is starting to really shine. Tooltip dps is 10.1k with only flame golem out.
With 4 frenzy charges it's around 11.6k and that's not counting concentrated effect. :)
This is while running around with 120+- IIR and 32 IIQ and 4400 life at lvl 79.

Thanks for answering all my questions this morning Jax, I appreciate all the help.

Sorry I left abruptly- the game ran out of memory and crashed... I'm in the process of reinstalling Windows 7 because 10 no longer works for me, both the HDD is at 100% and the memory usage goes up until it crashes, darned thing.

Soon I'm gonna roll a shadow sabatuer that uses dual consuming dark daggers and ice trap. Looks absolutely insane.

Started my cyclone marauder last night. If any of you guys happen upon a Kaom's two handed axe, let me know. I'll gladly buy it off you.

So I'm doing one more map early this morning, doing a Crypts map with surprisingly good drops. I come across the fat guy and figure "yet another crappy offer" but was I wrong-Vaults of Atziri map for 155 coins! Ran one more map later, he offered five orbs of fusing for 4 coins. Maybe today is the day to talk to him, who knows.

BTW if anyone wants to party with me on the Vault map send me a PM. I think it would be a fun guild thing to do. Probably will do it some evening (US East time) later this week.

Vaults is just a loot grab. Kinda boring really.

Smack: Hezmana axe > Kaom's. Free blood magic for attacks, slightly more phys damage.
