Hit a DPS wall

  • #1
    Outside of a sick Mempho and upgraded gems; I'm not sure what else I can do to make a sizable jump in dps. Also, I tried to do the red/green combo in my xbow, but it resulted in a dps drop surprisingly.

    Any suggestions?

    id say first things i notice is your nats ring doesnt have crit dmg nor does your gloves, id work on upgrading those 2 things first.

    could be wrong but i thought i remember crit dmg being like your number 1 stat as a DH.

    gotta try and get a better manticore, that really put me alot higher. also crafted ammys and gloves would really help as well. and def craft bracers u already have the 24ms u could gain a TON, off of a 300ish dex and 4.5+ crit roll.

    I think cash wise a better manta would be the most affordable for me right now. Thanks for the advice guys!

    Edit: Thanks Bradicald3, I was able to pick up some new bracers. I had no idea the MS cap was at 24/25%. Thanks!

    - better mant.. imo check 1350+ 1 socket mants with 11 att speed, 150+ dex and 85%+ chc .. should be better than this u got in case u dont got money for 2-scoketed mant with 1200 dps
    - nat ring with crit or cheaper solution nat ring with chc, 9% att speed and some avg dmg
    - gloves could be much better.. play on with crafts or try 2 see some trifectas
    - same goes for amulet (grab me in pm i got some cheap which might help u out).. its lovely amulet u got but u allready got 50+ hp and u can sacrifice some
    - think about changing quiver.. grab some with 14% ele dmg, 20 speed, ~200 dex+ for cheap.. boost on ele arrow is much better than that 10k difference u got now and i dont see u use multishot

    In addition to the above, you can look at diabloprogress or one of the other ranking sites to see what some of the top DPS DH's use.
    Conform or be cast out.

    There are a lot of upgrades that you need besides the sick mempo :-)
    First of all, your crit hit damage is waaaaay too low.
    Get a manti with weapon dmg, dex and 2 sockets.
    Gloves with dex crit crit dmg and ias (drop the vit and you can get them for a decent price)
    Get naty's ring with crit or crit dmg.
    Get a quiver with ele arrow bonus. Don't cheep out on this one, it's BiS. When you buy it, make sure first it has 10% cc and 20% ias and ele arrow bonus, then focus on the dex and vit on it. You can get a very decent one for 20-30m.
    Also, don't forget to get a helm with a socket. The bonus xp boost from that would really help you in the long run, especialy in the new patch.

    Thanks for the advice. I'll put that into work. Also, just so I have an idea, around how much should I be paying for your suggestions?

    I'm not sure but I think the US AH is a lot cheeper than EU AH.
    A manti with 2 sockets and 1100 dps is about 80m on EU servers.
    Gloves should be around 50m.
    Naty ring about 60m.
    Dead Man's legacy between 20 to 100m, depending on the amount of dex and vit on it (remember get one only with 10cc and 20ias)
    As for the helm, I would suggest either an andariel with a socket or naty, that should be 5-50m gepending on the stats.
    Again these are the prices on EU, on US should be a lot cheeper

    I got the gloves, DML, ring, & helm, but as for a 1300 Manta with 2 sockets... it's about 1 to 2 bil. So that's a no go until the prices drop. Lol

    Thanks for all the tips though, man.

    I said 1100 dps manti not 1300 :-)
    Do a test: equip the manti that is on your scoundrel, put in it 2* 100% crit gems, and see if there's any difference.
    Also, you lose a lot of dps because your rings and amulet don't have avarage dmg on them

    My advice is drop the Manti, get a nice 1200+ calamity with %damage above 47%, 11%as, >80% chd, as high death mark as possible. socket with ruby. Makes face tanking that much easy. Manticore is for girls.

    Here is my profile: http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/freeze-2351/hero/889905
    I`ve build this DH after getting bored of my monk, budget was roughly 200m+ so i think the result is quite nice :)

    On a dps farming build in public games i reach 310k, with my mp9 solo gear at 240k. Mp10 is a bit hard in solo, but if i try hard its ok.

    When you do go calamity, combine it with a rare 1h crossbow in your offhand. You can get a lot higher dps than using a dml for a lot cheaper that way. Stats up to these: http://d3up.com/i/7399010 and obviously sick discipline regen with night stalker.

    ^ Wotb + br up: live conditions.

    Thanks for the heads up Freeze & Kami. Currently there are no Calamities on the AH better than my Manta. But I'll be on the look out. Also, is there a certain legendary off hand I should be looking for?

    You can get a better ring by doing uber bosses sure it might take 8 times but an upgrade on your hellfire should be easy and cost effective
