Level 51, just starting hell. I'm at 6894, that's with magic weapon and glass cannon. Sitting at ~17.8k health.Jewelery. Amulets\Rings. Don't get damage and int. Get damage and increased attack speed. There's magic items, called Keen XXX of Wounding at lower levels, and Raiding XXX of Agony at higher levels. Just search the AH for magic rings\amulets, and choose "attack speed" from the filter. You'll find them. Expect to pay a decent amount. The way items scale, I have yet to find a better ring\amulet. Someone please prove me wrong.Nothing but a ruby in your weapon.Try to get gloves with increased attack speed as well. Glass cannon\magic weapon increase damage by a bunch. Duh.Use the AH. Don't rely on what you find. If you don't use the AH, you are severely gimping yourself, unless you're incredibly lucky. The best items cost a lot, but decent gear is cheap. I just search for rares in my level range, with int and vitality. Sockets are nice too.Nothing but a ruby in your weapon.This can get expensive, but try to keep your weapon up to date, with the highest damage possible on it. I'm pretty sure today I bought 3 different wands while leveling from 44 - 51, spending well over 200k on them. Excessive, yes. But good damage. I hope this helps. This is all I have for now, it's late, and I'm tired.
I've seen a few pointers to get DPS up, so I'm going to chime in a few as well.
