Diablo® III

2 1h

Anyone out there use 2 1hs? Is it on par compared with a dead man's legacy?

Under what definition? Compare with Calamity, 2h Bow or Xbow?
The ones I am using is on par with DML if you are talking about dex and vit.

Warden's Rush - Actually have the similar or slightly higher edps(skill damage figure) than the ones I am using right now but way faster, a good match with Calamity.

Your current setup in d3up

After I input Warden's Rush into your offhand in d3up and change both gem to radiant emerald
http://d3up.com/b/1126793#skills

At first glance, you lose 23.3k dps and your APS drop from 2.99 to 2.94 on paper but take a look the increase dps in skill(about 10k increment). Higher per skill % dealt such as Spike Trap, the better you benefit from DW(with emerald). High Average damage ring/amulet scale better than critical damage since you already have so much CD from emerald. Tackling your EHP decreased will be your main concern unless you can get a pair of EHP xbow like mine.

Note: I am selling Warden's Rush

Yeah, it's a pretty debatable topic really. I have a fairly decent rare 1-hander in my off-hand, and I haven'y noticed a huge difference in kill times than that of my 300dex, 11% Bola DML. The only drawback is in the lack of Vit... but I enjoy the challenge it provides, and still have plenty of defense, health, AR and dodge to get by without it. Also, if you can score a 1-hander like Kamikaze's ( http://puu.sh/4ht54.png ) then you will surely be set! lol

You score mine, you are also set, increase your dps by 6.6k :P

Damage difference between Warden's Rush and Screaming Stem is only 1.1k(mine lose on pdps) but if you look at the skill damage again, mine win :P

Forget to say Dex scale very well with DW as well.

Actually, I lose 1k dps with the Warden's Rush when you factor in the poison damage. If it were black damage, then yeah, it would be a bit better... but the poison damage kills any bonus I would have gotten. Definitely nice though!

Well, if it is indeed a bug, then why would I spend the $100 on something that gives me a potential boost in dps for a potentially limited amount of time? 6k dps is definitely not worth that to me considering I spend 600mil ($20) on the bow I am currently using. If I were to spend that kind of money, the increase would be from my Mempo I'm afraid.

I am not sure why so many veteran DH didn't realize that currently* all DH weapon are bugged with black damage affix and all are able to proc cold SOJ effect.

After reading his guide about manticore, I become very curious about all element on DH weapon and went ahead testing all of them with cold soj.

Result, all of them give cold effect if you are equipping a cold SOJ so it is safe to say that they are currently all bugged and DH are actually the most unfair class with bugged weapons(all benefit from element % on whichever pieces you are equipped) throughout 1.08(majority of DH don't seem to realize it). Go ahead and buy any element weapon from DH and try it out with a cheap cold soj using shadow skills.

Edit*


While the "bug" persists that regardless of the +Min/Max Element Damage on a weapon, the reason why Black Damage is more favored is that because it benefits MORE on the +5/+6% DMG given by SoJ.

AFAIK, the 6%(for example) wont boost the +250-500 FIRE damage on a Fire 1hXBow. But it will boost the +250-500 black damage.

Which is probably why he opted for two black damage x-bows over his Warden's Rush, I imagine. Either way, it's a sweet 1-hander, and I wish you well in your sale!

Now if you won't be using any SoJ, Tal's Amu or Inna's Belt.. then by all means, use any element :)

PS: There's Frostbourne too and Magefist :P

The elemental damage only added 27.69 to Manticore vs the prior 49.14 damage it gave to Calamity, this is because the poison damage doesn't receive any bonus damage. Both weapons will still proc Cull the Weak because of the small amount of cold damage it received, but Calamity utilize it better being pure black damage instead of Half Black, such as Manticore.
Dammit, I miss this section. Didn't realize it take cold effect into account and does not include added element %. Thanks for pointing out.

@Ender
I use my current one for higher hp despite lower damage.

Sorry for misleading by the way.
