Bought a new LOH weapon and packs just wreck me. What part of my stats are too low? I literally get 4-5 shotted by Phasebeast champs.Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Just tried some Act 3 and it's definitely not doable, at least with any sort of efficiency. Part of that is probably my weapon, but I'm wondering what else I need in order to make Act 3 farmable? My resists seem good, is my Armour too low? Need more LoH? DPS? Dex?Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

I just spent about 2-3 million on everything except a weapon, I had to go up to higher prices in the 200k+ range to get some of the resist stats I was after. These are my stats now:Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
27k HP (my old weapon has 103 VIT, 720 DPS and Crit DMG)
5950 Armour (with Enchantress and Passive)
183 Life Per Second
116 Life Per Hit (from a Ring)
For the weapon I'm willing to spend a mil or two, what should I be trying to get? Life on Hit? Socket? What DPS range?

Are those stats buffed? 6k Armour with a 1000 armour shield requires 625 armour per slot hat naturally has an armour value. That seems really highPosted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary

Posted in: Monk: The Inner SanctuaryQuote from KishoEDIT: You know, I have to ask... How on earth did you manage to make 8.5 million before dinging 60? I know you said you've farmed Hell a lot, but bloody hell. I only recently got the 'loot 5m gold' achievement, and I've had a level 60 since launch week...
I've been farming Act 3 on my DH, meaning Act 3 Inferno.
Is anyone farming Act 3 reliably on their Monk? What kind of stats do you have?

Is it possible to get gear good enough to farm Act 3 with using only 8 mil or so?Posted in: Monk: The Inner Sanctuary
Long story short I've been farming Act 3 on my DH, but since 1.0.3 dying too much counts, and I'm built glass cannon. If I want to say, exchange my shoulders for ones with survivability, it'll cost me about 3-5 mil. I'd almost rather gear my Monk and farm with him.
So how far do you think you can get right off the AH with this much, and what gear should I be looking for? I of course know to choose a resist and stack it + All, but what about weapons? Do we still want Life on Hit? How much should I spend on it? Is a socket important? What should I look for on Rings/Amulets?

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from StaydownJust dying alot maybe getting unlucky combos
invis snakes are the worst creation.. i cant kite in those tunnels public games are horrible gah i dont even know!
Ah, yeah. In the sewers, any packs you can't kill you'll want to try to kite to a spot you can dump them off at. Sometimes you can't, so you have to man up or just restart.
In the end I think the best way to deal with the Nagas is to preemptively SS just before they re-appear in your face. You'll learn the timing after a while, and will still probably die, but it works.

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from ShattarTotally disagree here that DPS is the main factor when deciding which weapon is better. If you take IAS out of calculation weapon damage plays huge role in Damage output. I especially picked up a bow with less dps but its damage was higher than those similiar both min and max. 250 more min damage on blue xbow +dex %+skill%+crit dmg? Just quick estimate 250x1800dex - 4.5k raw damage+skill %. Crits will make even noticeable diffrence 10k+ per hit already.
When im looking for weapon i always look up Damage first because it can vary a lot on weapons in range of 100 DPS->socket->Crit dmg->Dex/etc->IAS(post patch). 38 dex is hardly noticeable diffrence in overall damage.
... When I say DPS, I don't mean the DPS value of the weapon. I mean the number that your DPS improves when you put it in the spreadsheet (i.e all factors are considered). I honestly figured people would be smart enough to make that assumption and connect those dots, but apparently I'm mistaken.
Quote from RodvikVery true but I've compared several bows to a bow with a socket and a critical gem in it and 90% of the time the socketed bow wins out. Even against bows that were 2 to 300+ dos higher than the socketed bow. You can do it yourself if you like just to hopefully back my statement up. Bows with Critical DMV or with a possibility to throw a critical DMV gem in them are sought out for.
Whichever gives more in the spreadsheet is the one you go with. I've also checked a 950 bow with a socket vs an 1100 and the 1100 won out. Depends on a lot of factors, but 90% of the time socketed weapons cost insanely more than those without, and you're unlikely to find a cost efficient improvement. No point in getting a 5 mil weapon with a socket when you can get a 2 mil without and have the same DPS gains.

Posted in: Demon Hunter: The DreadlandsQuote from RodvikI don't buy a weapon unless it comes with a socket anymore. Its a huge DPS increase having that critical dmg affixed to your weapon. Especially if you use SS. Which I don't use anymore cause my crit chance is up to 49% unbuffed.
You should be using whatever gives you the most DPS. If X weapon without a socket gives more than Y with a socket, X is clearly the better option and choosing Y would be completely moronic.
To the OP, use the spreadsheet (check the frontpage of this subforum) to check your DPS gains with new gear or weapons. In my slightly meh gear, 38 Dex gives me 1.3k DPS.
