sorry but I do not understand. My gear costs just a little above 300M (from my estimates) and this guy with 1.2B has just a little more unbuffed (about 13k) dps than me, to add to the fact that I have a larger EHP (although not by much) than him. Plus I haven't fully upgraded my gear (I plan to remove my MF gear soon, which includes pants, chest and amulet).
Is the additional ms and lifesteal that he has, compared to mine, aside from the dps, very necessary and worth such a large fortune???
I do not see how this can be a proper allocation of spending.
I'm sure that Acrimony will chime in, but I have a few thoughts.
1) An extra 12 MS is HUGE for WW barb and so is the extra LS given his extremely high DPS. How much do you think your skorn would be worth if it had 3% LS on top of its existing stats?
2) You probably built your barb over the course of months, giving you lots of time to snag bargains through bidding/sniping. Acrimony built the set over a few days which gives a lot less time to find bargains.
3) 13K unbuffed DPS is big. It's the nature of the game that it's relatively cheap to get to a reasonably good level, but it's almost exponentially more expensive to get upgrades after a certain point. As a couple of examples, look at my character. I recently upgraded bracers and boots. My current bracers cost 30M vs 4.4M for my old bracers and essentially added just 1.5 CC and the extra armor but was otherwise the same. My boots cost me 28.6M vs 5M for my old boots and I gained 19 Str and 29 AR while losing 41 Vit.
4) You have 18 paragon levels on Killakush, so the difference in gear is larger than at first glance.
