i'm lvl 44, act 2 Nightmare, and I have 6k HP, the problem is the Highest potion I can find only gives me 4.5k HP, do I have too much HP? or is it normal that the potions dosen't heal me to full life? also for a wizard weapon, what i the best gem? +damage or +critical damage? I currently have a 2 hande macewith 60 base DPS and socketed a radient ruby for 84 DPS, but I wonder if the Emerald is better?
Yeah it's normal that health potions don't heal your full health. For sockets in weapons, I always go for +dmg. While I don't have any math to back it up, I'm pretty sure crit is worse while leveling at least (maybe it catches up at max lvl and good gear, dunno).
What's your DPS if you don't mind me asking? lvl 36 in Act 1 and I only have about 1.9k hp and about 799dps with magic weapon (force) on) so need to find a balance somewhere.
I have 845 DPS unbuffed(I don,t use either familiar or magic weapon I find them to be wast of skill slot, I prefer mor offensive skills like blizzard, meteor, and more defensive like Diamond Skin Teleport, Mirror image, so far in Nigthmare I don't die that often due to the defensive skills saving my ass) also my merc have like 12k health
Actually that health seems low for that level. I had 11K at that time. Yeah, the potions don't heal for much, but they can get you out of tight spots. trying to lower your HP just so your potions look more useful is definitely not a strategy I would recommend.
I'm also kind of surprised you're making it through with DPS that low. have you used the auction house to look for gear at all, or are you only using things you find yourself?
