Quote from NagggashQuote from NaughtThe 10 mana regen from my helm is enough to sustain nonstop dire bats with VQ
Are you happy with 120mana regen right now? I'm sitting at 164mana regen, thats with VQ ofc and using support spells like grasp/hex + spam bats = no mana when i need it, and sometimes it cost me a life.
Why i asking, is because i want to change my helm (current is 180int, 4crit, 12m regen), what i want is 220+ int, 6crit and socket or vit or all res. Such helm would give me ~4-4.5k dps boost with a mana regen lose. So what do you say? Also Naught, Zunimassa's Journey >>>>> Boj anglers. But price also 3mil for boj vs 30mil for zunimassa.
And to OP. As ppl said already, you need to stack crit/crit damage, as a main prio right now.
I'm happy with my mana regen, yes. But it depends on how fast you attack. I swapped from a 800.1 dps weap (1.4 AS) with 100int 166vit 2.60% lifesteal, 14 mana regen, and a socket with 90% crit in it +++ a 106-390 dmg OH with 8% crit, 79int, and 116 max mana to a 2h that's 1353.7 (0.95 AS) with nothing but 60% crit dmg + socket of 90% crit gem, and my dps on my inventory sheet went up by 3k. I was expecting it to go down but then to have bigger crits, which is the whole purpose of this build anyway. Ideally, you attack as slow as possible without making attack-moving feel clunky. With both builds, my mana regen has been just enough to keep it up solid. So 24 mana/sec with 1.4 AS 1h+OH, and 10 mana/sec with 0.95 2h.
So if you're talking about dropping your helm for more dmg, it sounds like you have to be using a 1h + OH because otherwise you'd have no way to regen mana. With that in mind, I'm not sure if it will be enough for you. It might be if you're getting your mana regen from your OH and your MH is a slower type of like 1.2 or so. Tough to say. I use Honored Guest - Spirit Walk / Hex - Hedge Magic / BBV - Rain Dance / Fetish Army - Headhunters / LClick - Dire Bats and RClick - Gargantuan - Relentless Giant. And then I just literally spam all skills every time they're up to keep mana going. You're right about the boots, btw. Zunimassa's can be better. Good call.
