Looking to improve my dps while keeping my survivabilityminions
Posted 19 March 2013 - 11:05 PM
Per the title; I want to up my dps while keeping my survivability. My WD is mostly for support, and I give that support with tank-ish minions. So my lps and resist all are pretty important to that. If you can give any suggestions gear wise I'd appreciate it.
Thanks in advance.

Your Gloves could also be cheaply upgraded by giving up just a few stats, and it would up your damage by quite a bit. Your rare Ring is quite bad as well. Getting one with average Crit Chance (4%+) + Crit Dmg isn't expensive, and should again up your damage by a considerable margin.
When your crit chance is within a decent margin (38-40%+), getting crit dmg on your weapon with either a socket or as a random roll is a must. Even if you drop to a 900 DPS weapon, as long as it has a ton of crit dmg, you'll see your overall dps increase.
That Hellcat Waistguard is also horrible, you can get a decent EHP rare Belt that's better than that, but if you're looking for a big 10-20k leap in DPS, a Witching Hour is the way to go - you can get one for about ~1mil nowadays (less if you're willing to wait and bid for it).
Get a "proper" Intel Vile Ward. They're very cheap nowadays and you'd gain at least 100 intel there. I'd honestly go for a 220 one, since those aren't very expensive either.

I was running a similar build to you with similar stats a while back, mixed it up a bit and am working with: http://eu.battle.net...UdTY!cdf!ZcaYZY + 10 mana/second on helm, feel much stronger these days (all gear self found, so could do with a bit more mana regen).
Thinking of switching out Bears for Acid at the moment.
Look to upgrade you gems too, should be able to get to Star quality fairly easily, minimal but easy improvement.

Edit: Keep in mind you would need a pair of Zuni boots to keep the Mana bonus if you went 2h.

Echoing Fury was never any "uber must have" weapon for WDs. Just paper dps for E-pen.
Any yellow +1000 dps weapon with crit dmg, socket, LS and atleast ~40% weapon dmg will be better.
The yellow ring you have could be easily replaced for more proper damage. Stone of Jordan or something with average dmg and high int.
