33 ticks = 5.5/s
I dont understand about this. Means i proc 5.5times per second from a tornado? or?

Breaking 2.74 has made a difference as far as my experimenting goes in 1.04. I thought the same about breaking 2.5, but this latest jump has been significantly better. That said, and again, this is 1.04 w/o the new freeze mechanics of 1.05, the windup takes so much time that I am really feeling a lag where the nerfed proc of LOH is killing me. Literally killing me if I am facing a (non-elite) Blood Clan Occultist backed by Spearmen in Arreat Crater.
3 APS with damage mitigation is achievable. But as Shandlar has noted, it is expensive to go for Armor/AR/IAS (while maintaining CC of course).
I'm with others of you who have recently dissuaded anyone from doing this if their gear is too far behind the curve. Its demoralizing to hit these points and reflect on the gold and time invested only to realize how drastic this nerf is.
It's all worth it though for the sake of "advanced wizard studies."

Sitting at 2.99 APS atm, which I already expected, but still painful to look at. To reach the 3 APS breakpoint, I need to upgrade either my Mempo, Witching Hour or Tal Rasha armor. I'm thinking about upgrading the armor with a Tal Rasha with +armor, but that's way out of my budget right now. I used most of my gold to upgrade my parts to what I have now.
Any other suggestions for an upgrade to reach 3 APS? Below is my current profile:
