Quote from LoroeseQuote from AypnosThx again for ur tips Loroese i have 2.67 aps at the moment,enough hp(at least my opinion),and 43cc without the buffs,just 2 questions that i have if you can answer,should i swap my ring with loh for a unity gaining 10k dps about but loosing 100loh reaching to 700?is it worth it?cause unity's with 8as are about 120-150mil
Also should i just keep my gear as it is and just start to collect gold for the same ones but with higher dmg?thats what i was wondering... for example better vile wards,witching hour,better zuni with av dmg,also zuni boots all resist,tal rasha all resist?
thank you again in advance
I'd be careful about losing LoH. As you raise your dps you actually need more LoH to compensate against RD (and based on the feedback on PTR, the RD 'nerf' won't change that too much). However, if you have a lot of damage mitigation, you don't need as much LoH, thus more to the balancing act. This is especially true at lower APS since you don't have as much LoH returns as higher APS.
For example, at 160k, with 4k armor and 700 resists, I got torn apart by RD+electric mobs on MP7 with some 850 LoH. Increasing my hp from 35-40k or so and adding 450 LoH didn't do much to my survivability (i.e., BT amulet). However, switching to a high str amulet did help a lot because I gained a decent chunk of extra mitigation in addition to 500 LoH. The extra 170 armor was very noticable (and about 2% less damage taken, roughly).
As far as what to do about gear, I'd recommend upgrading EHP as you try to raise DPS. Raising DPS alone will get you into trouble on higher MP because you'll take more damage due to mobs hitting harder. Raising EHP alone won't help you farm much faster, though higher EHP never hurts. Unfortunatelly doing either is going to start costing you a lot. With my gear, I actually need to raise my EHP since I still take a lot of damage from elites. My DPS is pretty decent for MP7 farming (I could probably bump it to MP8 but my EHP is a bit low for that) and higher mitigation would definitely make MP7 easier. I can really use another 500 armor or so...
Thank you for the feedback and the advice,i ve read it all carefully and completely understood how cm works,as,loh and damage mitigation. If you got some time,take a look at the link i posted with my character and tell me what could be a ponential replacement in gear, in terms of raising dps and not loosing survivability.
