    of the character or the crossbow?

    Both if possible. Or rather your gear as a whole, I'd be curious as well. :D

    i still need to upgrade like 5 things in that picture though, just hoping someone puts something on the AH worthwhile - lost a ridiculous amulet yesterday for 8mil because the AH was broken ah cheers.


    You do know that both Boj Anglers and Asheara's Lock are broken atm and dont actually give any attack speed.

    Without my Boj Anglers equipped: http://i.imgur.com/dSH9R.jpg - 1.93 attacks per second

    Hope they fix it soon but yeah just a friendly heads up


    bojanglers that say "increases attack speed" do not work
    bojanglers that say "attack speed is increased" do work

    it's a bit tricky, but mine do work mate

    Interesting. I'll have to go back and browse through see if i can find another good dex pair w/ the correct affix on it.

    Mind showin me the stats on your andariel/beckon/angel hair?

    I haven't gotten my hands on an andariel or beckon that I liked yet but I just found a 142 dex angel hair

    I wonder if anybody can advise on the inpat of IAS on overall damage of your character.

    I'm level 59 with gear focusing on DEX/VIT, 2H bow or crossbow depending, which ever gives higher DPS figure. I have around 29k hp and 8k dps.
    My build is: Entagling shot with lightning, Elemental arrow with frost, Impale with chemical burn, caltrops with torturous grounds, preparation with fog and marked for death with contagion.

    I have reacently found a ring with 15% IAS and some DEX, which gave me approximately 1k DPS boost on char. sheet. However, I found that I rarely stand and burn mobs on hell either because normal mobs die fast or I cant afford to stand still against most elites and champion packs.
    My other option for the ring would be +dmg +vit +dex, all adding to rouhly 1k dps less than IAS one but increasing my damage per shot.



    My question is:
    Does IAS have such a high impact as shown on character sheet in the real action? Isnt raw damage boost better for hit & run tactics (with Impale as main nuke)?
    When is the time to switch to IAS builds and focusing on burning enemies rather than slowly chew them while kiting?

    Thanks

    hey bro i just don't know how to specifically screenshot certain items without just taking 30 years to crop them all and put it in one big image? but if it helps, helm has 115 dex and 50 vital, belt has 155 dex, chest has 114 dex with 8 max discipline and like 30 vital?

    not sure if just listing gay stats like that just helps but i use it (vitality) for reflect/accidentally running into electrified shit, instead of just buying the 120+ dex counterparts with no vital

    When you're looking to gear up, IMO, take off sharp shooter.. it actually throws all your stats all over the place because it "thinks" you are always going to be at 100% crit.

    All this is very interesting, especially the tricky part about "Attack speed increased by/Increases attack speed by". Has this been verified or confirmed ?

    I've got also a few questions. First off, I'd like to know why some items show a loss in dps once my SS is stacked and why these very same items show a gain in dps once my SS isn't stacked anymore, and vice versa. What should I go for ? Even more dps when the buff is stacked or the opposite ?

    Moreover, assuming the "typo bug" (let's call it that) is true, should I assume that AS is tronger than CHD ? Or is CHD still the "best" way to go ? Thanks in advance.

    Too fast AS is not that good for sharpshooter...
    So, about the bug: attack speed increased by WORKS / increases attack speed by DOESN'T, to put simply.

    I'm in need of some backup... I keep buying things here and there and they keep being sort of of crap in the end.

    I had this 650+ bow I got from a friend, then I bought a 770 xbow with 96 dex and 19% AS for 500k, totally throwing my money away imo. I started seeing 900+ dps weaps for like 100-200k so I bought a 900 one for 200k and like 30% damage and got a 7k or so damage increase and I was like awesome! Now I find out that I shoot slower than a snail and that just doesn't feel right...

    I'm very torn, my money is running out cause I keep doing stupid deals.

    Right now I have like 69k damage with sharpshooter and I'm not really sure what to do to make my character stronger lol.

    HELP! :doh: School me in the art of Demon Hunters...feel free to go hard.

    Best way to get high DPS through your weapon is to look for a high DPS bow with a high amount of crit damage. With 20% crit (I'm at >30% so this shouldn't be a problem) and no other crit damage items, 50% crit damage already provides you with roughly 9.1% more total damage. If you're having 1600 Dex, that's equal to roughly 154 Dex.

    Using my gear (31% crit and roughly 1700 Dex), my 80% crit damage bow with ~1020 DPS gives me ~21.5% additional total damage.
    I'd get the same bonus through ~387 Dex or ~220 weapon DPS.

    Now if you look at the prices, you'll pay much less for a 1020 DPS bow with 80% crit damage than for a 1240 DPS bow without any stats.
