The biggest piece of advice I can give you is to pick an elemental resistance and stick with it. Your belt is probably the last piece of gear you will replace. Since you're probably eventually going to replace every other piece of armor, picking fire resistance is probably your best bet in the long run.

@Malice: I agree with Demiwrath that you need to decide on an elemental resistance and stick with it to take advantage of the One with Everything skill. I can see you have some excellent attack speed through your 2 weapons. With that much speed, u can afford to change up a a couple pieces of gear to stack some crit as your weapons don't have a socket for crit gem; this limits your dps as well as life steal as you get to higher than MP3. ALso get some LoH...at least 1500 if you are to survive MP4 bosses easily. Once your dps get to around 70k or higher, lifesteal is more viable.

@Demiwrath: Nicely geared, you should be cruising at MP4/5..but I would upgrade your boots or bracer to have run speed...you need at least +12% run speed to survive molten, arcane,jailers and their minions. Since your overall resist is very good, u can forego some LoH and Lifesteal. With less than 600 LoH, you would probably find it more comfortable with 4% lifesteal.

Resistances and armor aside (which are very important to me) which are covered in earlier posts, I'd always advocate for weapons with OS, no matter how high the DPS. Built-in ChC + OS tends to make weapons stronger than a slightly higher DPS weapon with neither of those. Those weapons are totally holding you back.
