    I don't know if you're misunderstanding eDPS or something, but if you're only getting 2.5M eDPS out Arcane Torrent with 1.3M sheet DPS, something is wrong. I have a bit over 800K buffed DPS and I'm getting about 14.5M eDPS with straight Cascade cast and Ignite Magic Weapon buff.
    Just checked my eDPS as you state it, atm it is:

    Dps single target: 20.3mill
    Dps single target(Archon): 39.3mill
    Spec (Same both times):http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/wizard#UemOjS!SRTZ!YccZaZ

    Only with 1 test, and not 100% precise, but that's my numbers atm :).

    Todays plans:

    • Short day, only from 13-17 or something like that.
    • Going to kill a lot of uber bosses to get the key, most on T4, but maybe going T5.
    • Still answering any question people might have on stream.
    • No boosting in T3/4 planned today - Will be giving away viewer boosts tomorrow.
    Thanks for reading/watching! :)

    Jaetch please, could you write me or tell me somehow how can I calculate my own eDPS? i have sheet dmg about 1,4m dps. But would like to know edps. Thanks in advance!
    Basically, this OP is confused about the term eDPS. A popular way of calculating your eDPS is going to Ghom, checking how much HP he/she has, and then start attacking and see how many seconds it took for you to kill it. Then divide the HP with number of seconds it took, and you will know how much single-target DPS per second you did. Preferably, you want to do it with a pretty high HP on Ghom so it takes a longer time to kill, just to be sure that this is not just a big burst of DPS for 5 seconds, and then your DPS is way lower for the next minute. You should preferably spend time DPSing to at least the timer of your longest cooldown used.

    Normally, this number will be way way higher than what it says on your sheet.

    What the OP is doing is basically just multiplying their sheet DPS with +%element dmg and +%skill dmg. This value will rather be your "real sheet DPS", but not your effective DPS in a fight.

    Also, measuring your DPS against multiple targets is a bit harder. It is so dependant on number of mobs, that I guess you will just have to play and see if your killing seems smooth or not when doing bounties, and then determine if it is high enough.
    Yea, i know the "sheet" dps aint the really effective dps, but it still something people can "relate" to, to their own character, without looking too much into it, hence why i mentioned that, and not a ghom dps test :).

    But thanks for the clarifications :)

    So - Today it's time for another stream!

    Todays plans are:

    • Keyfarming for Uber runs - New hellfire ring incomming!
    • Speedrunning T2/T3 whichever goes fastest and efficient in order to improve gear for T6!
    Be sure to join the chat and ask me/people i play with, any question you might have about Diablo, and we will do our utmost best to assist you :)

    You can also ask questions in this thread, and i'll do my best to answer, but i'll most likely respond more often if you are in twitch chat.

    (Only post of the dayZero(pS), unless someone asks me a question here ;))

    posted a message on Is there something that everybody else knows about arcane torrent that I don't?
    I'm using it on my wizard atm.

    I'm running T5 grps and it's working absolutely majestic - My spec is 100% revolved around arcane damage, so Arcane Torrent + Archon, things are crazy.

    On T4 Solo i kill elite packs within 5-10 seconds mostly, only using Arcane Torrent, and in Archon if they are stacked, about 3 seconds.

    http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Nitrak-2658/hero/8119139

    I stream daily RoS, i can link it to you if you are interrested (dont want to invade the thread, next stream tomorrow 13:00CET)

    I find it really important to get a lot of arcane% dmg, and Arcane Torrent dmg, the numbers really amp up.

    Buffed i have about 1.5 million dps (Not EDPS), and usually my Arcane Torrents crit like 4-5million, although i see the odd insane crit for some reason.

    This is off topic but can you please tell me how you managed to farm 3 pieces of Asheara's set. I have been farming Ssthrass for 3 hours and have not had one drop. What torment did you use to kill Ssthrass on to get the legendary material needed for the set?
    Ask me on stream i'll reply - bit busy here =)

    posted a message on Inherent flaw in cursed chest system
    From my experience, i had a lot of fun doing the "Chest" events, due to the nature of the event, but "farming" it becomes tiresome quite fast, although dynamic events like this is always welcome, having them spawn SET places is the issue.

    If let's say it had random spawn locations instead of the same spawn location, but still gave the same reward, it would be a challenge to hunt them down, instead of just constantly creating games KNOWING where it is located.

    Me and some friends (About 400k Toughness and 150k dps) and a tank (3 wiz 1 monk), tank with about 1.5 mill toughness, were able to beat, and get about 130-150 kills on Torment 6 difficulty (Netting 100mill XP in 3-5 min, about 1200-2000mill XP/Hour), although our gear is nowhere near what should be possible. But with teamwork, and coordination of abilities we managed to be able to farm it on Torment 6.

    I hope they will implement something similar to what i suggested above, so that the event will still exist, still give a nice chunk of XP to when you complete it, BUT it should be rare, and non-farm able by having RANDOM spawn location, instead of set spawn locations with random % appearance.

    Just some advice i posted for you on your stream, but i'll repost here to be sure you will see it :)


    Hey man, just so you know, the link on diablofans even though it says eu, leads to a pl twitch, maybe look at changing your language, since it looks like it's affecting your link's language , just a hint from a fellow streamer
    » And (sorry for barging inhere ), but i would suggest streaming at 720p instead, your stream is very chopping (Got a good internet connection here, should not be that choppy)

    Hello, a lot have happened since last, got a lot of new stuff and paragon levels.


    1. link to charakter profile http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Nitrak-2658/hero/272600
    2. which specc do you play? are you exposed to play another specc? - Whirlwind, but i know HotA is good for ubers on higher MP's
    3. which Monster Power do you want to play and what do you want to do? (detailed pls) Currently i'm playing om MP6 on farm, and MP7-8 on Ubers, but would like to do that progression towards MP10.
    4.what's your problems now? what do you want improve? My problem atm, is increasing my damage, without hurting my survivability. Changing my IK belt for a Witching Hour would give a great benefit in terms of dps, but i would loose 2pc (60AR) and 76AR on belt. I am also a bit low on hp, and have a very good trifecta neck in stash, but i would loose about 8k hp from taking it on.
    5. what's your budget to change your items? Around 30 million atm, so not that much
    6. what's your final goal? Same as last time, progressing towards MP10, and as far as i know, for ubers on MP10, HotA is the way to go, but still WW for farming.

    2. which specc do you play? are you exposed to play another specc? http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/calculator/barbarian#acXSRk!YdZ!ZZaZac - Yes, although atm with my low survivability i need the lifesteel of rend to survive
    3. which Monster Power do you want to play and what do you want to do? (detailed pls) - Atm i can easily manage MP3-4 and i can DO MP8, and i would like to be able to do MP8 comfortably.
    4.what's your problems now? what do you want improve? - My survivability really suffers - My damage is fine
    5. what's your budget to change your items? - Kinda low - Just restarted the game and went from only doing MP1 to this gear in 3-4 days, so dont think about budget, just dont think 100mill imba items :)
    6. what's your final goal? - To be able to comfortably doing MP8-10, while still having a bit of challenge and fun there.

    Quote from Nitrak

    People using . instead of , because of region, and 153.3 million is something else then 153,3 million?
    C# is parsing "153.3" string as "1533", while "," is working fine

    that's why you first use
    sXP.Replace('.', ',');
    eXP.Replace('.', ',');

    before parsing

    Yea ofc, but i dont know the source code, i just came up with a possible answer to the question :)

    And as Hagendaz said he had 31,25 mill xp and went to 32,25 mill xp, which should result in a net gain of 1 mill xp, but if he used . instead of , it would be 3225-3125 = 100 mill xp :)

    Hmm, just a guess, but could it be a semantic problem?

    People using . instead of , because of region, and 153.3 million is something else then 153,3 million?

    Anyway, nice program :), havent had time to test it, but if i go for farming Paragon it definetly would ease the process of finding the better route :)

    Hello Diablo 3 community.

    As i'm sure many of you out there still want to enjoy Diablo 3 such as me, and those of you who still enjoy it, part of this game is to find out new ways to play, and the new patch will hopefully bring us some new challenges a long the way.

    A challenge i have intended to set for myself, is to start a new character, and not use the auction house or old items at all (SOFTCORE), but to start it on MD10 and continue for as far as i can go.

    It is going to be interresting to see where the breaking points of this challenge will lie, but it would be awesome if i could hear other people's oppinion to this idea, and if anyone else could be interrested in trying it out.

    Let me hear your thoughts

    I have a very powerful computer but i keept lagging, like 10-15 fps, which should not happen. I ran with Nvidia driver 301.42 and i had pinned it to be the culprit, and after updating to Nvidia's newest beta driver, i now run 60 fps smoothly without any lag with Vsync on, so thats awesome :).

    I used this spec instead:

    The dmg reduction from Threatening Shout is REALLY worth it in my opinion. Another thing that helped me greatly, was picking up a String of Ears (20%) from the AH with pref 20 AR. That belt is sick!

    I tanked all of Inferno with stats similar to this:

    11k dps, 650 all resist (with war cry+impunity), 50k life and 11k armor (with Enchantress), 35% block and about 800 Life on Hit.

    I found myself to rarely die, but in the end i simply found it too boring and slow. So now i sold my tank items, and i am trying to create a DPS build now to clear Inferno solo :).
