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.

Hrm. I'd be willing to generalize it, but that would invalidate the answers already listed. Do you think it would be appropriate to ask it as a separate question, and then flag and request that a mod close this one as a duplicate?

@IanPugsley Iirc, the best method varies depending on the ilvl of the drop you are interested in. Also, the SoJ is a bit of an unusual scenario in that it was a mainstay of the economy at one point, and then became a key to summoning uber Diablo.

comment Can followers (templar, enchantress, scoundrel) die?
@Michel There was one comment, saying "your group really has to work together". This doesn't mean "you have to be in a group". It means "you can't go off on your own and expect to be able to solo when in a multiplayer game on Inferno", which is something that Blizzard has explicitly stated elsewhere.

Also, this. Perhaps you are basing your comments on their original announcement, since it seems they changed their mind about follower viability at high level.
