Diablo® III

Need advise on ehp vs mit in my case

I plan to buy a witching hour that can give me considerable dps and hp at the expense of mit.
I really want the dps increase but am not sure though if the hp gain can at least compensate for most of the mit loss.

These are my current stats:

261,277.62
Damage per Second

558,454.19
Effective Hit Points

Armor 4,171
All Resist 888.7
Block Chance 0%
Dodge Chance 10.98%
Armor Damage Reduction 56.97%
Total Damage Reduction 88.74%

Maximum Life 62,881.08

VS:

+3,025.55
DPS Change

+14,589.9
EHP Change

Armor 4,178
All Resist 819.9
Block Chance 0%
Dodge Chance 10.98%
Armor Damage Reduction 57.01%
Total Damage Reduction 88.07%

Maximum Life 68,370.08

Help me out please!!! Thanks guys!!

btw, I did read the guide about the recommended of at least 3500 armor and 700 AR but am not really comfortable about the idea of those low numbers(considering I still die on certain circumstances).

Other than me, I haven't come across any other players recommending those numbers. I use a Skorn :)

Hi Paul,

Yes I should have probably clarified I use the mana set.

Thanks for your input.

Any people using 1 handers got any advise for me?

I would choos mitigation over the ehp and dps increase, though its still hard to decide. Its just a matter of choosing both have great pros vs cons but mitigation might be a better pick. You can look over my profile to match and see what I have done to my doc. Thanks for reading

Here is something to think about when you are looking at Mitigation vs EHP:

Mitigation and Life Steal go hand in hand.

Since the max LS you can get with a 1h build is 3%...then you need more Mitigation to support this number. The more Mit you have = less your LS has to heal.

I used to at your situation long time back, choosing between a AR or HP base WH.
What I found out are having 88+% MIT and 800+ AR you will be safe. Hence both cases are viable. But the extra 6k HP are a lot, that will make u feel the same as having 888 AR.
I down from 910 AR to 850 AR.

I will choose to increase DPS and HP. Good luck.

DPS and HP option. Mitigation and ehp should still be good enough. Depends how you play of course.
