Diablo® III

The 5000 Armor SNS Club

Been in this club for quite awhile. Aim been in it longer than I, Shand even longer..way longer - he might be the founding father of it lol. I remember about 2 months ago Aim was all bent out of shape when he went back down to something minor like 4800ish armor (where I was). I was like chill not a big deal but it makes a huge difference, it's actually more impactful than 25 AR cuz of the 10:1 balance ratio's where armor is always harder to get higher than resists so I cannot blame him.

Didn't take him long to go back to 5k tho :P Very good club to be in :)

Yeah... Shandlar started stacking EHP in 1.04. I thought he was nuts until they "fixed" the damage output scaling with mp on the PTR. After that, I became a believer.

I'm deficient in the armor bit but eHP helps out. Paperdoll not updated (was testing gear) but I run SNS so display dps should be around 300k and not more. Hopefully that allows me to qualify as honorary member =P

You don't need 5k Armor if you have high LoH. Look at Boozor, he has low Armor, but because he also has like 1300 LoH, his survivability is okay, as in he can manage RD. So a balanced LoH/Armor/AR ratio is more realistic than let say Armor/AR. Imo LoH is also EHP for CM/WW lol.

But hey, it's nice to have 5k Armor! And get it without buff like Enchantress or EA is even nicer.

There are some affix combos that LoH by itself won't make up for lower armor/ar.

I also have 1.3k LoH, and combined with 5k armor/800 resists, it is *just* enough to survive some nasty RD combos without having to kite.

Edit: Actually, I have close to 1.7k LoH, and the above statement still stands.
