    One of my posts just made it here. Just wanted to thank you for keeping these links. I have figured out almost all of this information, but being able to find it would have saved me hours of work. The forum search function is abysmal.

    This thread deserves more recognition than it has gotten. I think it's mostly due to the part of the forum it's in, though. Great information for choosing items and understanding stats!

    which one of these threads explains how spell damage is worked out? also does weapon dps in anyway affect your spell damage or is it purely intelligence ?

    Very informative compilation. Here is a link to my thread regarding the Damage Spreadsheet.

    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5592455337

    I am also adding in dual-wielding to the spreadsheet as soon I get the DPS calculations to come out accurately. I'm currently 1-500 dps off with each configuration of weapons I dual-wield. Thanks.

    your doc made it to the list as soon as i found it, ill add this thread as well

    eventually I'll want to streamline this to as few links as possible, but for now, might as well keep everything

    Great post. Tons of info.

    I actually found my way here by trying to compare armor to resistance.

    Damage reduction/resists e.g. "protection" mitigation/attenuation stats & effective survival
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5270830197#2
    http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/5149150485

    I'm working a spreadsheet of my own based off the numbers shown in the above to posts to try and get a direct comparison between resistance and armor. I'll probably fail miserably so I wanted to see if anyone has seen any calculators or graphs that will help you compare two items based on their resistance / armor ratios?

    I have a feeling that its a moot point really and that resistance is pretty much always going to trump armor.

    they are, I think the boards only allow a certain number vs how much text you write.
    it just turns them off automatically


    I actually found my way here by trying to compare armor to resistance.


    they are close to identical, for a practical evaluation
    10str = 10int = 10 armor = 1 all res
    but as soon as you stack one it shrinks in effectiveness

    included a new link on this btw
    "How much all resistance will I need?"
