for 2h users, i would argue its almost necessary for sustained high dps.
and a good one is obviously better.
IMO (as 2h user), overrated. Obviously, the only saving grace is the Zuni 4-piece bonus. If you just look at the ring stats itself, you can buy better for about 1/10 of the cost.
With a Visage, you can get 14 mana regen, so completing the Zuni set would only give +6 mana regen (don't get me wrong, +6 mana regen would still be nice though). If I spent 400 mil or so, I could maybe get a Zuni helm and Pox that could compete with my VoG and Hellfire (a combo that cost me about 30 mil). I would still lose DPS from AC bonus affix on VoG though.
This conversation is a little off the rails. You have 3 Tal Rasha pieces and it's giving you nothing in the way of set bonuses, so of course it seems like a wast of money to buy a decent one. You're missing the point of the Pox, and set bonuses in general. A pox shouldn't really be considered as a stand alone item, and you should be thinking about bonuses that will benifit you.
