hey there. i've recently got into getting my DH to get into at least T3 / 4 range, and i was wondering a few things, as i don't often play a DH. What kinda stats do you need in order to make your DH take a few hits? which items? a str or int based character are easy enough to gear, as their main stat directly effects their toughness. i realize my DH isn't in top shape, and this isn't a "look at my DH and pick it apart" thread. this is more of a, for those DHs out there kickin ass, whats your secret? from what i'm gathering, i figure armor is the better stat to stack, though you can't completely forget about res. forgive me for being ill informed about the class, i've always found the WD to be more intriguing out of the original 5 character line up, so i haven't given DHs a whole lot of thought. thanks for visiting, and i appreciate any input!
Ashearas 2+3 set is great tankiness with 100 All resist and 20% more Life... If you pimp your 3 followers the 4 set has insane up time and they can tank things pretty well with the "Cannot die" tokens; or provide nice buffs with the "All skills" tokens. HOwever that does need 6 legendary rings; 3 amulets, and 3 weapons and a shield; so not worth it unless you've already pimped them out.
i see... so you're saying that AR is the best way to go, then? since both of you are referring to a way to buff res. this vexes me greatly... i've been building towards armor. how do you guys feel about the blackthorne set? worth looking into? i appreciate your responses, and i've heard them, and they will be heavily considered. i thank you. does anyone else have anything else to add?
