Diablo® III

Cheap gear to take to ROS usable at 70

What gear can you take that you will definitely be using at 70 (with the Mystic and Loot 2.0 the way it is now?)

  • Chant's Will, 49%dam, 1.65 attacks/second, socket
  • Jewelry with 8-9%attack speed, near max CD%, and a socket. You can reroll life regen, life on hit, all resist to a main stat (up to 219) or crit chance if you don't have that already.
  • For example, I picked up a really nice avg dam/int/vit/8%atk/48%CD/life regen/OS ring for a pittance. I'll be rerolling the life regen to CC%. This applies to Nat's Rings, too, especially if Blizzard is going to keep the Mystic materials the way they are now (it's a lot easier to reroll D3V legendaries as you don't need arcane dust.)

    Based on my experience so far, that's it. Everything else will get replaced.

    I note this is "cheap" gear. If you want to take expensive gear, then a good socketed trifecta amulet with an affix you can reroll to +damage% is ideal.

    I REALLY hope that Blizzard will fix Loot 2.0 and the Mystic so that the above statements will become false for RoS.

    Hey Mou -

    Jaetch was saying somewhere else on the forms that rerolling rare rings in ROS won't let you reroll CD above 20s; have you or anyone else been able to test what the range of CD and CC are that you can reroll ilvl60-62 rings?

    Hmm. I've rerolled all of my rings already, except for one I had on an alt. That one could roll only 23%-25%CD.

    So you might want to focus on atk spd%/CD% instead and reroll CC% (which remains at 4.5%-6.0%.)

    I fixed the OP.

    Ok so ias/cd is the way to go cheap, obviously the best items will come from rerolling the mainstat on already godly pieces. Thanks Mou!

    Is it 4.5%-6% for rare rings or just legs?

    Isn't Life After Kill a secondary stat?

    Yes, unless they changed it very recently.

    I wouldn't be surprised to see this is changed, it simply enchants to well and for it to have 10apoc on top of that makes it insanely good in ROS. Though I have some just in case, but its still risky. Eg: don't spend millions on it unless you have spare gold.

    If it isn't a decent trifecta, socket and primary to reroll I wouldn't bother. Its not hard to already get a 400Int + bifecta in ROS which will beat most bifecta, socket and primary to reroll from D3V.

    Mmm is bifecta a word...... you get what I mean.

    That's what happens when you do this from memory and don't check. I've fixed the OP again. Thanks!

    I have a 400int trifecta rare ring from ROS (6%atk 43%CD 6%CC.) That will never come with a socket. And that's close to the best you can get (another 7%CD, a bit more int.)

    A 100 int 9%atk 50%CD socketed lvl 60 ring with 6%CC rerolled from say life regen will outdamage the above easily. (3% more atk, 20 less int.)

    ammy = 36-72, 9ias, 10cc, 100cd, os, primary
    ring = 36-72, 9ias, 6cc, 50cd, os, primary
    tasker = 9ias, 10cc, 50cd
    ice climbers = 290+int, 160+vit, 12% ms
    but these aren't cheap ofc..

    cheap items.. umm
    stormshield with 34% block n os
    nat's ring with 9ias, 50+ar n os
    bul-kathos wedding ring with os
    buriza with 14+% freeze, 70+% pierce n os
    any half decent trifecta ammy/ring with os
    follower item with high primary stat, 50+ar, one other good bonus(regen/loh/lak/armor/crit etc) + primary (n just reroll the spare primary to high vit)

    p.s. pls don't share any ros/mystic info with barbs.. lol

    n I wouldn't go for max stat chant will unless u can get one for cheap cos I doubt its gonna last long in ros, just get one with 9apoc, 48% dmg, 1.64% aps with os oc..

    Add in the old puzzle rings that spawn goblins. New ones have a new ability (free leg after you collect 40 whites which can take a long time). Especially in A5, where monster density in some areas is insane, (think the spiders in A3 only even more), having an old puzzle ring on my Scoundrel, with IAS 6% added to it for useability, has resulted in a TON of goblins spawning. I've probably gotten around 20-25% of my blues/rares/legs from these.

    bul-kathos wedding ring with os


    Is the drain life ability actually substantial?
    Reply Quote
    haven't tested that much but its suppose to be good for followers in hc mode. I'd also buy maximus with os if u play hc, cos its the best protection against dc(besides high ehp+regen) imho.

    also don't buy any Tasker and Theo for ros, cos even the perfect one will lose to ros gloves by ~20k dps.
    ros gloves: 600int, 6ias, 10cc, 50cd (n u might be able to get one with 7-9 ias)
    perfect tasker: 415int, 9ias, 10cc, 50cd (135int from mystic + 280int from gem)

    Pretty sure the Int reroll of the: Quad stats to Int or Armor to Int is ALOT higher than 135.

    Edit: Also gloves is one of the items that roll high Int or Str. But doesn't for Dex or Vit. It rolls 100 plus more max in Live. Unsure about Beta.

    Why do you keep using a trigonometric function as a conjunction?

    L60 gloves in PTR/RoS roll up to 329 or 349 int (not sure which). I'd expect the Taskers to reroll to 415 int alone, before even looking at the socket for potentially more.

    I got friend to test the tasker on mystic yesterday, n she was only able to get 135 max on primary stat, but for weird some reason mystic changed all 4 primary stats(str/dex/int/vit to 120-135 I think).

    I thought 415/9/10/50(i.e. perfect tasker) would still be good in ros but if u can get 600/6/10/50 gloves in ros then even the perfect tasker's gonna be useless.

    No, the Taskers currently reroll the 4-stat affix set to 135 max only.
