Diablo® III

DEX or DPS?

i'm relatively new to diablo 3 but not to a rpg. So do you want to stack dex in this game or dps? and if dps? how do i go about doing that? like what items?

you stack both, since dps is only obtainable through rings amulets and weapons, there is no way for you stackign dps over dex

prioratize dex

By equipping items with dexterity your DPS will increase. You can also increase DPS by using items with plus damage, increased speed, etc.

for example 500 dps item with 50 dex vs 425dps item with 100 dex. The AH needs a comparative tooltip..I don't see why in the hell it wouldnt. How did this get past beta? zzz

DEX improves DPS through a multiplier, while DPS simply adds on to whatever you already have before multipliers. You'd probably have to graph to find out the breakeven point. At lower levels (~30 ish) I found that items giving +raw weapon damage gives a larger dps increase than dex, but at 60, dex gives a larger dps increase. (of course, I'm just guessing here, since obviously 1 weapon damage is greater than 1 dex. I'm basing this off the exact same items, equipped at lvl 30, stashed until I got to 60 then equipped again to recompare.)

I believe that the numbers are :
1 Dex = +1% of weapon damage
1 DPS = +1 weapon damage

prioritize whatever makes the damage number on the left go up. At high levels that's usually increased attack speed over everything else, then increased % damage & dex.
