Diablo® III

killing myself on reflect damage

with 700 res, 5.1% life steal and 450 loh

but don't worry guys prismatic armor is totally not mandatory

(it's still mandatory, thanks reflect damage!)
RD is broken after you go mp4+++

its only balanced untill mp3
Also Blizzard forgot about one thing.

The more health mobs get - the more times you have to die on RD to kill them (3-5 times on mp10, without even being hit by the mobs at all)

or get like a bunch of health orbs 10 or more to sustain one elite lol

PS: i have read that blizzard employees do NOT test inferno just hell mode
so they do not even know what is broken... (inferno life steal is only 20% effective)

Wizard here, with 40k more DPS than you, no lifesteal or LoH, and doesn't use Prismatic Armor.

RD is fine. Stop being terrible.

Your dps is too low... 5.1% life steal isn't working as well.
Hydra is reflect suicide, neither ls or loh proc with it. When i used hydra blizz, i didnt use hydra for reflect packs.

magic missile... stop being terrible? Also OP has better mitigation stats then you, so just lol at you...
I've never had an issue with reflect damage, even at higher MP difficulties. On my DH, I can't just spam my attacks carelessly, but with proper management of damage mitigation/regeneration, it's not as big of a deal as people tend to make it.

It may work for you and your build, but that doesn't mean it's broken. What about a DH with Sentry and custom engineering? If a reflect pack runs into 2-3 of my sentries, I die. There's no way to avoid that reflect damage.

your dps might be higher but your damage is most certainly not because disintegrate >>>>>>>>>> magic missile

i see a couple mistakes here let me help you out.

1. LIFE STEAL IS POINTLESS
2. 450 LOH is pointess (1500+ or GTFO)

and if you want to live get your armor up past 5k and your health to 30k and your resists to 700+ You should fair pretty well even in mp5

increasing my damage would help with reflect damage?

you sure about that?

MP0 doesn't count.

Maybe your DPS is too low to tell, I dunno but I agree with OP. I can roll 6LS skorn/Bloodrune/1250LoHjewelry and at over 225K DPS with over 5500K armor, 850+ AR (43Khealth).... @ higher MPs (7-10) I will still insta-kill myself if I charge into a pack of reflects. Although the further away I stay the better and can wear them down, but it adds a lot of time to runs.

pre-edit: ok so consensus LS and < 1500LoH does not work in :-|

Regardless, it's just about properly managing your resources and having a spec where you can play comfortably. If someone is struggling taking damage, then they should re-evaluate their stats and tweak their build accordingly.
