Nice to see this thread again. I will retest as my gear has altered since 11/20/12. Dropped Inna's set and picked up IAS in almost all slots. Will give an update later this week.
Also this test was done prior to snapshot that many used about a month or 2 ago. I wonder how that stacked up with people doing insane DPS. Prolly killed Azmo in MP10 the same amount of time it takes me to down him in MP6 I figure.
Would like to try this in 1.0.7 with some Bell spamming inbetween Nados.
I have para 30+ characters for all classes and decided to see which ones had the best kill time of Azmodan in MP5 (25,700,000 HP) and which class/build had the greatest multiplier of effective DPS compared to the screen DPS. Here's how they rank:
Witch Doctor is the zero cooldown sacrifice dogs build. Easily the most robust too as you heal 25K for every sacrifice. (100 hours experience in class @ time)
Monk used Won Khim Lau/Echoing Fury and a total 5% Lifesteal between them (100 hours experience in class @ time)
Pretty much standard build for Whirlwind Barb (240 hours experience in class @ time)
Critical Mass Wizard was at 3.01 APS to hit the breakpoint. I died a couple of times as I used the highest DPS version using Shards/Shocking Aspect/Glass Cannon/Cold Blooded. More defensive style the kill time was much longer (1:41) but no deaths. Damage multiplier goes down to 2.4 (230 hours experience in class @ time)
DH - Spike traps and Hungering Arrow. Died a couple of times but I was a little rusty, still... (250 hours experience in class @ time)
I had spent about the same on gear sets at the time I did the test other than the 3 piece zero cooldown set for the WD (about 130m). I've put more into my monk, barb, wiz and wd since then and went with a strafe build for the DH for speed runs.

Frigg! that's a great post and thank you!
The DH result doesn't surprise me tbh. I've always thought of them as a high DPS, direct hitting type of toon.
I'll release the google doc when I'm done with it. geez, everytime I come back to this work hits me.
working 13days in a row! ~~woo to being self employed lulz
GREAT JOB ON THE SPREADSHEET!
Dexterity : 2420
pDPS : 165.7K
*** APS : 3.36 (3.71 dagger hand / 3.08 Echo hand)
ChC : 46%
ChD : 296%
MP level : 8
Ghom HP : 70.6M
Time to kill : 35s
EDPS : 2.01M
EDPS:PDPS ratio : 12.13:1
I saw that you put up my 11:1 (Higher dex CHD/ lower CHC) but left this one off. Can I get this test added to the spreadsheet too?, since it appear to be the highest EDPS ratio so far.
Hey Weegee, here are my results:
pDPS = 119k
Azmodan HP @ MP6 = 36Mil
TTK = 42.23s
eDPS = 852k
pDPS / eDPS = 7.15
Azmodan HP @ MP4 = 18.3Mil
TTK = 20.49s
eDPS = 893k
pDPS / eDPS = 7.5
Standard cyclone build. EDIT: Helps when you get the figures correct duh...

Picked up a rather affordable 6/19% WKL today which cost me 1100 paper dps and did the same test.
MP8 EDPS Ghome Kill - 3.15APS Won Khim Lau Monk
Ghome HP - 70.6m
Time to kill - 35s
PDPS - 164.5k
Factor - x12.25

Very interesting thread...I have been wanting to calculate my EDPS
I made some bad trades and now I am missing a 48 dex emerald..but here are my results
using WKL and EF
azmo HP 36,000,000
time to kill 23.7
factor x 9.2011
Sweet, now for the second test. Delete your character, create new character, don't buy any gold or items from third party sites, farm/ trade for gear and finally, repeat steps 1-7. Afterwards, please post new results so we can get accurate DPS readings to compare.
