Quote from orangedropmate you need to think for your self. now you replace almost all your life on hit, how does it feel in mp3? if you are still dying then you need to find the right balance or again as i said, playstyle, i zerg mp1 and 2 but i get punished for that on mp3. there is no magic number, people that said oh 500 all resist is fine so you go buy AH stuff and have 500 all res and can't survive, That sux!
Ppl said 1400 life on hit but i had only 1000 on me and it works after adjustment for me, i died a few times early on too so I add up AR till about 800 after shout and it works for me on my gear but its not necessary work for someone else unless we have exactly the same gear. gearing up is a thought process and takes time, not go to AH once and its done. Each gear is different and it adds up differently, thats why you need to try it out and adjust yourself accordingly. I am surprised you went all out lifesteal straight up and if that doesn't work for you than i really feel for you but its not the end of the world, play around with resist, armor, etc, even life on hit. go high then start reducing.
It's working fine, I tried MP10 just for fun, and was surprised when I didn't die, and could kill elite packs. It took way too long to be effective, so I need more DPS but other than that, I'm fine. MP4-5 is decently fast, though I still think MP1-2 is better for speed clearing and getting loot.
