how come so many high damage wds use tal rashas amu instead of a rare amu?

  • #1
    wouldnt a nice rare amu give more dps and be cheaper since its not a set item? or am i wrong and that monster int stat just dominate?

    The higher your overall DPS output, that 5-6% elemental bonus damage that comes with Tal Rasha's is very difficult to replace.

    For instance, I use a 270+ int, 10 cc, 62 cd, 6% bonus Tal Rasha's. I actually need a 200+ int, 80+ cd, 9+ cc, 6+ ias (or the equivalent big average damage) rare amulet in order to somewhat break even on the DPS. And I'll need the 200+ vitality on that rare amulet as well if I want to leave my Tal Rasha's. At that point, those two amulets would be worth about the same... 1-2 billion gold at least.

    I did the math and a decent Tal Rasha's Allegiance would add several thousand damage over my 100int 95%critdmg 9.5%cc amulet because of the elemental damage.

    ty for the quick replies.

    does + cold damage translate to spells? ie: +6% cold damage = aoe slow for acid rain?

    Had a good rare before my TR, it had 10cc 100chd, 180 int, 1xx vit and 45 physical resist. After long searching bought mine, not only I have seen great difference on sheet(which means nothing btw) but more important the damage I dealt has noticeably increased.

    Only if the spell deals its damage as Physical. (Sacrifice?)

    It adds to the damage of all spells. It just won't add the slow effect.

    Not even close. Your crit damage is abysmal and you lack both attack speed and average damage. Your intelligence is above average at best and there's nothing else worth looking at besides great crit chance and all resist.
