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.

@Michel That video says nothing about group vs. solo. It's just an explanation of how hard Inferno will be (and Blizzard claims that they expect it to be months before anyone can "beat" Inferno, regardless of team or solo). As for my claim, here's the main source. Its from an interview he did in Korea (translated into English).

@Michel That seems to contradict the repeated statements by Blizzard that the game is designed to be soloable at all difficulty levels. Do you have a link to the source of that statement?
