Tell me something: What MP level did you play back in vanilla?
started with MP 3 (when MP has been released) and when 2.0 has been introduced , i've been at MP6/7, no AH used of course...... and also i've gone sometimes into MP 10 to kill some trash mobs there ^^
MP10 With that DH? Not sure if you're just trolling me here, or it just took you 5 minutes to kill a white pack...

I used diamonds for a while. Didn't really make much of a difference in T3+and most definitely wasn't even worth losing a huge chunk of dps from 1800 dexterity. Of course, you'd understand this if you had actually played anything above T1
. As I've mentioned before, dexterity provides fake toughness
, because dodge isn't a reliable defensive stat. Sheet toughness is irrelevant when your real defensive potential isn't even reflected by that number. You could try this just by playing a DH for a while and then switching over to a STr or Int class right after with similar toughness value. It simply doesn't compare. You can also stack vitality, which has been demonstrated to provide fake toughness, giving you a flamboyant 500k+ healthpool, and I guarantee you it won't do a damn thing for a DH under the current framework .
Despite that, my DH has a higher toughness value than the average high-end DH, which oscilates somewhere between 2.5m and 3.5m toughness, for many, even in HC. Not like that's relevant, given the overall squishiness DHs suffer from thanks to that sub-par stat. With the dexterity change, that situation will change, finally, and we'll be able to build some proper toughness without having to sacrifice a large portion of our dps while other classes get it built in their mainstat. That's precisely what many of us were looking for. If you had taken the time to test it on the PTR, you'd realize how much sturdier the DH class feels now, but since you refuse to test this changes on your own, I won't even waste more time trying to make you see how flawed your argument is.
It's a pretty unoriginal change, but it's pretty practical and most definitely welcome for the time being.
