comment What is the strategy in using Zombie Dogs and Sacrifice?
+1 Zero dog builds are indeed very powerful (and, last I checked, very expensive!). Thanks for adding this; the builds weren't possible when the question was originally asked, as Homunculous didn't exist then.

comment How can I reassign my gem skills?
@ChrisHateZ I've decided to build around 1 hand, which rules Sweep out, I believe. Cleave was one of my very first quest rewards, and the only AOE I have aside from Molten Armor, which is about as ineffective an AOE as you can possibly have. When I switched to the nice rare mace I found, I felt gimped because I had almost no AOE capability. In all honesty, I didn't even realize Cleave had a dex requirement (it doesn't at the first few levels), and they seem low enough that I'm not certain if it will even be an issue.

comment Is it possible to respec (reset) the passive skill points?
I figured that was probably the case, but it's good to have confirmation. Thanks!

comment Is it possible to respec (reset) the passive skill points?
When using a respec point, are you restricted to only removing passives that are at the end of your progress down a specific path (i.e. no skills that are prerequisites for another skill you've taken)?

comment How can I protect my Cob Cannons?
@BenBrocka I also use them against Bungee Zombies, instead of Umbrella Leafs, although you sometimes have to pick and choose what to defend.

comment How can an item level be lower than it's requirements?
@Mario see my answer. The types of bonuses are based off of the tier, which is based off the monster level, rather than the item level. Number of affixes is based off a completely different roll.

Updated and expanded on tier levels.

comment How can an item level be lower than it's requirements?
I'm sorry, but this answer is wrong. Item level is unrelated to number of affixes, and types of the affixes. When an item drops, item type and level is rolled first, then number of affixes, and then the specific affixes. The level of the affixes is determined by the level of the monster that dropped the item, and not the level of the item.

comment Diablo 3 Skill Progression
"The stated goal is to balance the runes against each other, without one obviously "correct" choice." This is true, but it is worth noting that Blizzard failed to meet this goal for some skills/runes, in that certain runes are so obviously superior to all others that there is no doubt which is the "correct" choice (for an example, look at the runes for Zombie Charger for Witch Doctors).

comment How to “reset” a game when farm keys with friends
@Giskou If I'm understanding you correctly, you're saying: start in a multiplayer group, kill key warden, leave multiplayer group, and either join a different multiplayer group or start a new single player game. As I understand it, the question is asking about how to reset the monsters with the same group, not how to leave and start a different group.

comment How to “reset” a game when farm keys with friends
@giskou So if you and I are in the same game, and we kill the Key Warden, you can portal, log out, log back in, and the Key Warden will respawn while I'm standing there? I don't believe that is true, but I'll try and test it tonight.
