BEST IN SLOT GEAR : What is it?

Posts: 352
Just curious what pieces you guys are finding to be best in slot.
Obviously there is variance among item rolls.. but narrowing a item down to a legendary is still progress in the search for best n slot.

To start discussion..
I bought a talk rash a chest piece
13 % ias
2 socket
51 ar

Is talk rashas the BIS for chest?

Lacuni BIS for wrist?

Andariel for helm or stacked rare with high int ar and vit

Assume your goal is to get 5/5 NV farm in act 4 with ease

Sounds about right.

I'm a huge fan of boj anglers for feet. the IAS is great, just make sure you dont get a bugged one (though they're patching asap).

Talking rashes sound terrible.

Keke don't make fun of my phone typos. I post from work :)

I'm interested to hear from some decked out witch doctors?

When is a super stacked helm better than an andariels?

Note that these questions of mine stemmed from the purchase of my talrasha chest.. it barely increased my dps over my 200 int chest that cost way less :(

My helm is probably not better than Andariels, but it's pretty decent.

138 int
83 vit
60 all resistances
gem slot - +13% health

It is the reason I can take a hit from Diablo when I time my cooldowns poorly or just react slowly.

Kidding me right?

[Stats Weight]

Attack Speed
Int
Crit Chance
Crit Damage
Gem Slot
__________
Vit
Resist

The reason Vit and Resist are near worthless is once you get in A2 Inferno (doesn't matter about your defense) you'll still get 2 shot, assuming you have the passive.

I have a friend with a very Tanky Barb and ALL he gets is Vit/Resist/Armor/Str and he still get owned.

I COMPLETELY recommend Glass Cannon. Become good at kiting and collecting high damage items.

If you don't have Attack speed rings pick up a 69+int 12%+ attack speed ring and watch your dps. They go around 20,000 for one ring.

Currently soloing Act III just about half way through.
If you need a talent build as well, reply to this post.

WOW! You even saying that is redic, Andariels is flat out amazing.
100+Int
12% AtkSpeed
3% Crit Chance

There is no way in hell your helm is remotely close to what that helm does for your dps.
The reason its like milliDons on gold is it RARE to have ATKSPEED on a helm, making it best in slot for nearly every

They are useful in some situations. I'd recommend you hang on to the int/vit/resistance gear you find.

Can you still run a poison dart build as glass cannon or bears only? I really hate bears melee distance.

I run Poison Dart(splint) + Haunt(mana) + Grasp (corspe drop)

Then i have Hex + Zombie Wall for kiting

Mempo of Twilight (helm)
Boj Anglers (feet)
Flavor of Time (helm)
Lacuni Prowlers (wrist)
Lidless Wall (shield)
Hammer Jammers (legs)
Angel Hair Braid (belt)

and pretty much any 1k dps 1-handed weapon with LOH

and for Rings just get some that have 50 All Resist, +Int and +Vit

Is the Goldweave belt a DPS upgrade? I have a bugged one with 9% attack speed I'm holding onto, but due to it being a 31 legendary is the low int going to cut into my DPS too much?

Just curious if someone has a working one they can tell me thumbs up or down.

To the above, you can play a life on hit WD tank. Its far more expensive then any other build but... hey you can!

You'll still get 2 shot in the end OR do like zero damage and take WAY longer to clear anything.

Since belts don't generally have Attack speed on them I would take the Int Hit (assuming its not too bad)

You can test it out your self for 20,000 Gold tops

Buy a Ring with just like 10%+ Attack speed ONLY on it

Then get a Ring with 70int+ ONLY on it and see which boost your dps more

Granted find a ring with = The ATKSPD and a ring with the total Loss of Int on it

>>> Aeon's WDoc @ 41,000 DPS with PtV, 64,000 DPS With PtV + GF x5 <<<

GF= Passive Gruesome Feast, Its very nice if you roll with a Barb Tank with the passive that drop health Globes 25% more often

Sure! I'm only a fan of bears in Hell/Nightmare farming with Vision Quest Passive.

In inferno A2-A4 I can't use the vision quest passive cause I need my defensive CD's when I NEED them, not for just popping them for 300% mana regen.

Is that only for darts spec or all specs? Cause I use a zombie bear build and idk what are my most important stats :/

For zombie bear build it would probably be:

Int
Crit Chance
Crit Damage
Gem Slot

Basically attack speed falls off for you as valuable.

For all Specs, Flat Stat Weight according to what I have tested.

However running bears you'll go oom faster, making Mana regen + Vision Quest passive more viable for it.

Faster Bears = Faster Damage (DPS) In fact I dusted it off and did some A3 Inferno with it.

I like Poison Dart just cause I'm not fighting/pooling my mana to kill mobs that take some time.
