100m Budget - Not sure what to upgrade

  • #1
    My wife's monk needs an upgrade or two but I'm stuck and can't think of anything worth it. I use the D3Calculator on my iPad to compare possible upgrades but most are maybe only 3k dps increase for a 100m item. I think if I'm willing to pay that much for an upgrade, it should be at least 10k dps (I'm assuming).

    Here is her armory link: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Candyapple-1933/hero/9766856

    She does have a really nice Quad-fecta ring she swaps out with the Leoric's Signet if/when we do Ubers. Her ring is 28-55 damage, 6% AS, 38 CD, 5CC, and 54 Dex.

    She also will swap her belt out with this Witching Hour.


    I only have 100m now and up to 180m if some items I have sell on the AH. I just don't know what to get for her that might be a reasonable price for the dps/cost ratio. Any advise would be helpful and/or if anyone has a nice item for sale, please let me know. Thanks!

    She needs the Nat's two piece really bad most of the damage we do if from SW tornadoes and more crits means more tornadoes. Spend the 100 mil on good Nat's boots and a average damage and socketed Nat's ring with that budget.

    Definitely buy http://us.battle.net/d3/en/item/natalyas-bloody-footprints
    You can get a pair with 225 dex and about 70 vitality for 100 million.

    Lol, I read the topic and assumed this was a discussion of the game itself. :P

    I looked up a Nat's ring and boots set; here are the stats:
    Ring: 87 Dex, 9%AS, 4.5% CC + Socket w/ 54 Dex Gem - 135m
    Boots: 195 Dex, 58 Vit, 72 AR, 12% Movement - 42m
    Set Bonus: 7.0% CC

    When I plug in the numbers, She's a -451.38 dps loss

    I couldn't find her nice ring in her bags/bank, but put on a decent ring she had in her bags that has 15 average damage, 98 Dex, 83 Vit, 5.5% CC, 29% CD + Socket w/ 54 Dex Gem to replace her Leoric's Signet.

    I just don't justify paying 100's of millions of gold for a Nat's set and gain little to no dps increases.

    So, at this point, I'm still stumped. :QQ:

    Edit: I forgot to mention I've updated her Armory Profile with the ring I mentioned.

    So her armory is showing 330k dps. Is that a true reflection of her dps? If it is i dont think any one will be able to suggest any thing.

    Her dps from SW is not going to show up on a calculator...most of her damage comes from tornadoes and the more crit you have the more damage you do. It is a huge net gain even though it's hidden damage. Also get her a WKL the legendary fist weapon with +%lightning damage and her dps with go way up but her on sheet will drop hard. If all you care about is how high she can get her on sheet damage go ahead and do what you want but on sheet and actual damage are two very different things.

    First off all unbuffed dmg lies according to theasiangamer at 165k dps.

    Switching to Nats 2set will go up to 177k unbuffed, using the same dex on boots and 8%ias, 88 dex and 4%cc on a ring
    Rings with low min/max a.a 12-25 should be reachable..
    Maybe your tool is not considering the 7%cc correctly.
