Theres another thread with a similar topic and name, so it made me wonder about my dps. i just spent 20 million on 2 new rings and amulet to boost my dps by 15k to get me to 85k no ss. i dont have much gold now about 9 mil and looking for my next upgrade. Any suggestions within 9 million would be cool but also looking for any suggestions under 100 mil.
I havent at ventured into the world sets and legendaries much. i have inna's pants and belt but switched it out for what i currently have. my goal is to get to 105k unbuffed. Any information on nats or innas or wtvr legendary would be useful.
You've gotta get a KILLER Calamity to be worth more than a relatively cheap rare. At the time of writing this, the cheapest Calamity with a socket is 45 million, with 28% chance to cast Marked for Death. It has 890 dps, 78% natural crit damage, and 10% increased attack speed. Now, the highest dps rare 1h xbow in that price range is 959 dps with no attack speed (a plus in my book), and has 95% natural crit damage. It costs 30 million, 15 million less than the Calamity. That 12% bonus from Mark isn't going to come anywhere close to making up for the dps and crit damage difference, not to mention the fact that it only casts 28% of the time.
A new quiver is all you might need. The DML's are so expensive and so in demand that any rare quiver is a tough sell. There were some on the AH last night with 200+ Dex, 100+ Vit, and 9+ crit chance for under 20m. Getting one of those and upgrading some of your gems will be a big boost for relatively cheap.
about the refelect damage comment: i beleive i have alot disc (46) and with gloom and lingering fog im able to manage reflect dam. quite well. thats not to say i dont have bad days that my timing is off and die but on my good days i rarely die from it.
upgrading my gems all the way seems like a good start prob invest a million or so gold to do that.
i think im gonna start with nats helm and replace my the andy's (legacy). i saw some with +crit for under 50 mil which was surprising to me. now i just need to find an item or two to get that gold.
quiver would be a nice upgrade for you. you can buy the old dead mans with 20% ias and decent dex/vit rolls now for fairly cheap, or you can get a post 1.04 rare with 100+ dex rolls....i got lucky on my quiver and it dropped for me, 129 dex, 8.5cc, 15ias, 8 disc, and a whole lotta health. good luck!
