Uhm... I do... With the GF I have 50K HP which is makes my runs faster because I die only once or twice.Who wants +20% life on their weapon, or +a shitton of vitality and dex if its lacking crit dmg, a socket or some form of life regen.
I'll agree the GF is kinda funny now with improved damage and the life %, I've tried one. But eventually your going to compare it to the monster level stuff (extra health and damage). The dps loss is huge. Unless you get a GF rolled with a crazy ammount of crit dmg. But quite honestly, in dps terms it cannot begin to compete with some rare 1h's or a skorn for instance. And in terms of rarity compared to some rares.. heh.. Quite frankly, you also need decent gear to still kill stuff with the GF.
Just to compare - I did 190k dps (without battle rage or berserker) with a skorn (200%crit dmg tho). I did about 80k dps with a near perfect damage GF.. Can't recall if that was with or without battle rage. Point is.. Its a rather gigantic difference.
