Just levelled by wiz this week and I've been swapping to archon for low MP speed runs too and have a few questions:
1. Why triumvirate? Arent there other sources out there that would boost dps more?
2. Azliet/Lordlaw - I've been told to take storm armor w scramble for the move speed to get from pack to pack faster but neither have taken it - yes/no?
3. Zunimassa vs Tal's chest - took a long time to decide which was better but went with Tal's for when I'm CM/WW. However for archon if you want max dps wouldn't you take Tal's too?
4. Archon rune - I've been taking teleport since it helps me move around faster too and still sometimes archon runs out, yet neither have you take it. Why the other archon modes & how do u keep it up?
5. I've chosen to get move speed from ring & bracer slot but both of you took boot/bracer. Is that more optimal? I feel like I need the HP boost from ice climbers so I don't die :/
6. Lifesteal - I swapped to a 2.8% LS wand before and still took damage from reflect elites and couldnt understand how to stay up... Also had ~350 life on hit from storm crow and still went down. Went back to my higher dps wand in profile now though. What's wrong? :( My AR is all over 500 too

SOme1 had posted the amount of dps needed for certain mp. Maybe u can try to search that up or some1 could link u that post.
At about 260k dps, i perfer to do mp3-4.
At mp6 and higher, i will need to switch cm gears to reset archon with WW almost after every group of elites. And time taken to kill trash mobs are too long, tend to lose archon very often too. EVen if i can reset archon in a few sec, i find not worth the time to farm at high mp.
U need to choose a suitable mp(depend on yr dps) that u can almost instant kill trash mobs and kill elite fast enough to maintain perm archon.
