I've been wandering what armor to get next for movement speed. Im using a cheap lacuni just for the speed, but im loosing lots of crit on bracer slot. But innas pants doesnt have too much int >.
All this is for an Acid rain MP0-1 faming build.
Go for innas with ~75int and get yellow bracers with int vit allres and 5.5%-6% crit and maybe pickupradius if you find it. Thats the best price wise.
The best possible gear would probably be lacunis with ~100int >50ar vit and 6% crit and gravedigger with ~250int ~100 vit +2sockets. But the lacunis alone would cost like 1-2billion :/ And its obviously over the top for mp0-1 :D
I would go for innas but be keeping an eye out for cheap lacuni's with cc.

May the heroes rise from the pit of despair and the bards sing of the day of death renewed to everlasting immortality....awaiting your return to the lands of Sanctuary may peace be with you on this day...your day of birth.
another option is to get a compass rose. that would free up the legs for some nice rare pants with 250+ vit +2 sockets and int + other stats. Same goes for the bracers. Lacuni bracers stats arent that great besides the 12 movement speed. they actually have a wasted stat with the reflect damage (attack speed is not that useful for most WD builds either). You could get some nice rare bracers with 6 crit + other great stats instead.
people are hung up with lacuni and innas pants and are quick to forget about compass rose ring imo... its all about juggling that movement speed stat as efficiently as possible.
Compass Rose is good to look at but it's hard to fit in when you are farming paragon levels as you have Hellfire and Leoric's taking up both ring slots. Other people are tied to Zuni ring. I'm not saying it's not good as it can be a very nice ring when it rolls well . . . I'm just saying RPG games need to start recognizing we have more than 2 fingers. More ring real estate please!
what makes compass rose a bad decision for WDs especially?
Lets look at the wasted stats of Lacuni Bracers - assume you get 6 crit ones with 2 useful other random stats (which is a big if as those bracers are 100s of mil+). You still have lots of wasted stats:
1) reflect damage = wasted stat
2) attack speed = wasted stat for most WD builds
Lets look at Innas pants - assume you have a nice stat in your random property. You still have wasted stats:
1) attack speed = wasted stat on most WD builds
2) dexterity = wasted stat
Lets look at Compass Rose = I suppose the best Compass Rose ring has +Crit Damage + average damage (as you can get 50% crit chance from other itemization). A good compass rose with high average damage and + crit damage is like 3- 10 million depending on whats available. Its pretty cheep and has no wasted stats. I dont see how its a bad option. especially for the gold cost compared to the other options. The big thing here is opening of the pant slot which you can get some NICE rares with monster stats (200+ vit + sockets + other stats) cheap. You can also get bracers with 6 crit and other nice stats as well and they will be much cheaper than a nice pair of lacuni.
I guess the most logical argument is giving up not using Zuni ring but I personally dont like set pieces for a few reasons.
1) it locks up gear combos because you need the set bonuses.
2) lack of customization of the character. set items cant be dyed and they all look alike. So your character never looks the way you want it to look.
3) really costly for the really nice pieces when you can find rares that are just as good if not better for cheaper. There are a few exceptions like Zuni armor is pretty damn godly though a cheap Tyreals Might out performs it for act 3 farming and Uber bosses because the mobs are all demons and the elite bonus is very powerful too.
Why compass rose is bad? Let me quote Emberos "Compass Rose is good to look at but it's hard to fit in when you are farming paragon levels as you have Hellfire and Leoric's taking up both ring slots. Other people are tied to Zuni ring."
