comment How do the armor tiers work?
@emerica. The best items will actually be random, not the uniques or sets.

comment How to get better gear as a high level character?
Not worrying about maximizing dps, and just attacking things, is why I boycotted random groups, and ultimately stopped playing. The amount of contribution by a DPS character who knows his rotations and builds vs. one who "just attacks things" is often the difference between a fast run and an instance where the group wipes repeatedly. Faster runs = more chances for better drops, too. If you're doing an instance every 45 minutes you'll get more loot than if you're taking an hour and a half only to have the group give up before half the bosses are dead.

It's been a while since I played, but generally speaking, optimal builds and a thorough knowledge of correct dps rotation cycles is generally more important than gear level.

comment What is the best method for farming for a Stone of Jordan?
@Lemmings19 That was my original thought as well, but I believed, after the discussion with Ian Pugsley above, that a more general question would provide the information needed to determine the best spot for SoJ farming. After seeing the excellent answer that question received, I was dismayed to see that it actually does not provide information for finding SoJs.

comment Should I play Diablo 1 and / or Diablo 2 before playing Diablo 3?
From a strictly storyline perspective, you can play single-player (offline, or in a private online game) and bypass every single one of the negatives you listed. I agree that you won't really be missing much if you don't play the previous games, though.
