Diablo® III

Follower items are absolutely useless...

If your gearing you follower to do more dmg your doing it wrong. Give them survivability. My Scoundrel has very low dmg but he has a 12 percent chance to freeze on hit bow with 65 percent chance to pierce. 1k loh and 1k life regen. I don't even search for dex no point you want them to stay alive.

Followers are useless for damage. I had my scoundrel up to 22k at one point using spare gear from the stash. Found it to be pretty irrelevent in Inferno.
That being said, they make great utility additions. Not just for the little extra MF you can get from them.

I personally run my Scoundrel with a "Freeze/Pierce" setup. Combined with the triple-shot skill he has, it helps alot. Triple-shot fires off 3 arrows at a time. Good pierce sends each of those arrows through a good percentage of crowds. Good freeze stops them in their tracks.

Very helpful. Take a look at my Scoundrel if you want.

And yes, I've sold quite a few follower items for decent coin.
