You don't have that option in D3. Every single build of every single class is 100% gear checked. You either have to gear for inferno or you don't. If you don't, your only recourse is to buy it off the AH. A complementary problem is that the gear in D3 is so deathly boring. There isn't a single interesting stat in the whole damn game, they're all just numbers. And unless you find that perfect rare with +main stat, +vit, +all resists, it's worthless.

I haven't played in two days, and frankly I'm not sure when I'll get the urge to play again.
Zih... You have epitomized what i ahve been arguing about with my brother for hours.

The gear SUCKS. In D2 I could get an enigma and have my pally teleport, a CTA and I could do BO BC, Insights let me have auras, etc. In this game, there are like 7 stats, and thats it.

The skill bonuses are useless. I dont WANT -1 mana cost on hydras. Thats useless. I would want +10 hydra damage. Instead the only option to get stronger is just more intelligence. And strength and dexterity it practically useless to a wizard.

Even the best items are barely better than what my Wizard in Act 2 Hell have. They have like 50 more damage, and then a bunch of useless stats like strength and helth globe life.

The gear is boring...
