really? Just reroll for max DPS so it does the same DPS as the top end gear does lol,
the EHP side of things comes down to player skill more than anything judging by the streams and maintaining ranged gameplay. Anyone who dares to tank cant sustain it for long. The power behind legacy nats is the discipline will allow for max kiting mobility and SS to keep you out of trouble and rerolling for max DPS is all you need and the rest of your slots be top notch and your good to go.
Judging by Athenes stream its still VERY powerful and can keep you alive through a ton of stuff if you stutter step well and use your skills properly. The old face tank and fire way of playing is dead from looking at all the vids so far. If anything i would argue L4N is in a VERY good position now that the game revolves around more movement rather than facetank and spam life steal. Also it leaves open an extra passive slot that can be used for even more mobility or vengeance and the like. It looks to be very viable for me if used right, if your just planning on facetanking then it doesnt have the ehp to do it but i doubt any class is going to just out right face tank anymore lol, looks like its all back to pre inferno nerf to me. (a good thing i think)
BTW from rading the barb threads and seeing the barb streams they have concluded resist all is obsolete as a stat in gear since diamond gems can serve a much better slot for that so if your lacking resist all you can stack it with diamonds like nobodys business compared to say armor etc. This makes gear different from live.
***Keep in mind im not talking about the already bad legacy nats sets, those will definitely be toast but the high end versions of the set will do more than fine.
