I'm in need of some backup... I keep buying things here and there and they keep being sort of of crap in the end.
I had this 650+ bow I got from a friend, then I bought a 770 xbow with 96 dex and 19% AS for 500k, totally throwing my money away imo. I started seeing 900+ dps weaps for like 100-200k so I bought a 900 one for 200k and like 30% damage and got a 7k or so damage increase and I was like awesome! Now I find out that I shoot slower than a snail and that just doesn't feel right...
I'm very torn, my money is running out cause I keep doing stupid deals.
Right now I have like 69k damage with sharpshooter and I'm not really sure what to do to make my character stronger lol.
School me in the art of Demon Hunters...feel free to go hard.
Best way to get high DPS through your weapon is to look for a high DPS bow with a high amount of crit damage. With 20% crit (I'm at >30% so this shouldn't be a problem) and no other crit damage items, 50% crit damage already provides you with roughly 9.1% more total damage. If you're having 1600 Dex, that's equal to roughly 154 Dex.
Using my gear (31% crit and roughly 1700 Dex), my 80% crit damage bow with ~1020 DPS gives me ~21.5% additional total damage.
I'd get the same bonus through ~387 Dex or ~220 weapon DPS.
Now if you look at the prices, you'll pay much less for a 1020 DPS bow with 80% crit damage than for a 1240 DPS bow without any stats.
