comment What is the best class for faster grinding and survivability in Diablo 3?
I disagree with that summary. Grinding speed/efficiency is largely a function of abilities that impact the character's ability to move faster, and the ability to kill "trash" enemies in a single attack. Some classes can effectively boost their movement constantly (such as a WW barb or a TR monk) in a sufficiently target-rich environment, giving them a notable edge in grinding efficiency.

comment Is it worth training the blacksmith?
It's worth noting that few of the new recipes have the potential to be best in slot, depending on the class (i.e. most classes would be best served by a good Lacuni Prowlers over crafted razorspikes, or set-piece chest over archon chest). For those that do have the potential for best in slot, the chances of rolling those stats are still exceedingly slim.

comment How often locust swarm jumps?
I can't answer off-hand about how often it normally jumps (I believe there's a fairly decent chance to jump each second... maybe 50%, but I can't say for certain), but I will say that the difference for the rune that jumps to 2 enemies instead of one is barely noticeable.

comment When locus swarm jump does the original still get invected?
@JimThio Haunt, if I remember correctly, only jumps if the original target dies.

comment Is there a cap or soft-cap in % chance to find magic items?
This answer is no longer correct ("treasure class" is more directly a function of MP level now, and there absolutely is a cap on MF).

There are other percentage experience increase items available (Leorics signet, Cain's set) besides a ruby socketed in a helm.

comment Barbarian PVP Build and Gear
@Sterno I made the edits, although the specific questions were the OP's, and I left them in because I didn't want to stray far from the OP's intent. I think you're right that stripping out the specifics might help improve it further, though.
