[Need advice] What to upgrade with 100-120 mils budget?

  • #1
    Hi guys,

    I haven't been playing in 2 months and now I'm back for just a couple of days. It's like everything has changed and my gears became out of date. Fortunately, after a uber boss run with my friends' help, I got a decent amulet (for Wiz & WD) which has been sold for a good money. So, I have 120 mils to spend.

    Could you guys pls give me some advice on what to upgrade with that budget for a DT/WW build?

    Here's my profile https://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Derpilios-2638/hero/10843604

    Every advice will be appreciated. Thanks! :D

    Swap your weapons. It will increase your crit chance and you will hvae less troubles keeping up WotB + you will gain quite some dps, because the dmg range on your EF is higher.

    You could get much better lacunis. Search for 9% AS and then either go for STR/VIT/AR or just take some with crit chance.
    You could get higher STR on pants + STR gems. Either that or good Blackthorns or if you feel like you need max dps then Inna's Temp with 90+STR and 9%AS

    After that, start stacking some AS where you can.

    Thanks for that, man. I really appreciate it.

    And usually, I use my EF as main hand weapon, just swap it to test. Do you think I should get a better EF, with around >11xx DPS & 5x % CD with no socket? (About 15-20 mils)

    for ww your main dmg is tornadoes from sprint


    Its hard to say what would be good for you without a calculator or spread sheet due to the fact that paper dps on barb is not a good indicator of actual output.

    You would be better off with a 200 str, cd, ls, dagger then the sword.

    Echoing fury has the fear issue, its fine for upper lvl mps but it pretty annoying when trying to farm, putting it in the off hand helps alot with this but you will need to pick up the ls or loh on your main hand or your amulet.

    A quick all around good upgrade would be amulet with some loh, however all your gear is "solid"


    I guess you need to figure out what you want to do.

    low mp farming - a pickup radius item would be nice

    high lvl ubers - can you live at mp 10 with overpower - crushing advance instead of your shout?
    Do you care about high lvl ubers?

    Then upgrade for what you want to do,

    Thanks, man. Those are very good advice. I don't play much, just around 1-2 hours a day. Usually, I farm at MP 2 and sometimes I do Uber bosses at MP 9-10 with my friends' help.

    Do you think I should get another EF with LoH to use as an off-hand and buy an axe/mace with high DPS + socket + vit/str as main hand?

    The thing is you want as much CHD on weapons as possible, so atleast one of your weapons should have CHD+socket.
    For an affordable price most ppl end up with a high dps main hand with STR and socket and an offhand with lower dps, but str / 80+chd/ socket / healing stat (high LoH or LS).

    As for weapon type, you can go with EF with low fear chance or good axe/mace in MH and sword or dagger in OH.

    You can put the EF in OH, if your other weapon has higher dmg ranges, but you still need high CHD on one of your weapons AND some healing stat would be nice, unless you have an amulet with really high LoH or super high dps for LS belt to suffice. That gets expensive.

    Thank you very much. It's very helpful.

    I've just got some new items (helm, boots, gloves, weapons, shoulders) and got my offensive/defensive stats buffed.
