Disenchanted lots of lvl61 hats yesterday, no RoS mats salvaged.
Must be a new thing as of today, but I haven't had time to play yet.

I have more dps and 2.5 times the toughness than before the patch, but I'm pretty sure all my items will be replaced by the time the sun comes up on March 24th.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion

I farmed chests on t4 yesterday, after 330mill XP and 1 meager legendary I gave up. Too boring for me.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Then I farmed Mira on t5 about 10 times before I couldn't stand it anymore. Even more boring.
I'd rather run Keep Depths over and over again until RoS. At least you get some action (and definitely more legs) with it.

Yeah, but in reality DPS is king. If you can kill enemies before they can touch you, nothing else matters.

So I looked at your gear:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Papagaj-2656/hero/48534Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
And one thing stands out: There's an affix on your Seven Sins which give +15% damage to the Familiar.
Does that mean you get Sparkflint +10% + 15%? That would be insane!

Yeah I just calculated it again with 15% instead of 15 and now it makes sense. But he didn't write down the % in his formula so I was confusedQuote from Pietrak
My best bet would be common sense flowing from mathematical knowledge. Put it in your spreadsheet, if it somehow turns out wrong you can modify it laterQuote from Flexy
May I ask where you got that formula? I'm asking because I want to transfer it to a spreadsheet for quick & easy calculation. Therefore the formula needs to be correct.
In general I think he is right. If you have, let's say 10 000 sheet DPS and you equip an item that gives you -5% damage, but +14% Fire damage, then the most logic calculation is:
New DPS when dealing Fire damage = (Old DPS * 95%) * 114%, that is assuming that you have a non-fire damage weapon.
If you have a Fire damage weapon, then my best bet is that the +14% Fire damage enhances a portion of your total weapon damage too. So if a weapon deals 1000 total damage, where 600 is black and 400 is fire, then the total damage of the weapon is 600 + 114%*400 = 1056. This complicates the whole formula, as the new basic weapon damage has to be factored into critical hits, attack speed and such.
EDIT: It's not (1+15) * 250 000, but (1 + 0.15) * 250 000

Most damage categories are multiplicative.
Since elemental damage is multiplicative then you multiply your new sheet dps with elemental percent. Formula is (1+elemental dmg) * sheet dps = actual dps. So to break even, (1+elemental dmg) = new sheet dps/ old sheet dps. So to break even, your elemental % gain ALWAYS needs to be higher than your % dps lost.
Using the previous examples, if you lost 30% sheet dps then you need 1/0.7 = 43% elemental damage to break even. Since you gained 20% cold damage, then your overall actual dps is 0.7 * 1.2 = 84% of your original dps.
Next example: losing 18% damage for +25% cold does NOT increase dps by 7%. Let's see: 0.82 * 1.25 = 1.025 = 2.5% dps increase
Now if your weapon has cold damage and also has % cold damage buff, then my guess is that amount of cold damage on the weapon gets multiplied by the cold damage buff, for all spells. I'm not sure if the sheet dps already calculates the buff in.
EDIT: Wait a minute, I'm not sure if I understand that Formula.
You say: (1+elemental damage) * sheet dps = actual dps
With "elemental damage", do you mean the % damage increase (like +15% Cold Damage)? And are you sure it gets multiplied like that? So if I say (1+15) * 250.000 =4.000.000 dps? That can't be right.

I'd recommend every frost wizard who uses Frost Nova to wear "The Magistrate" even if it takes away some of your dps.Posted in: Wizard: The Ancient Repositories
I was lucky and found one who was all around better than my Mempo. Look at the helmet here:http://eu.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Flexy-2748/hero/2210535
So now I essentially have 7 skills. Because of the helmet, I could replace Frost Nova with Frost Hydra, which now acts like a Nova-Turret.
How often does it proc? Pretty often! I'd say at least once every 6 seconds (most of the time). It's pretty OP.
