Im a typical WW barb, and the situation i had previously was maximizing AS and DPS (around 170k unbuffed) on all pieces as far as i could, with 2.8% (MH) + 2.8% (OH) + 3% (Bloodthirst) = 8.6% life steal, using a witching hour. That worked fine in 1.05, except that after 1.06 came out, it seems that creeps are hitting harder, and RD was buffed up a notch. This made me die more often than not in MP8.
As such, i changed my witching hour for an IK belt with 2.8% life steal (not reflected in profile yet). To my amazement, i could WW in 4-5 arcane beams + molten + plague with no problem (total life steal of 11.4%). I had to sacrifice a little DPS and AS though, so now standing at about 147k DPS unbuffed. AR was boosted to a range of 700-800 with IK belt.
Anyone could share an alternative method, or comment on mine to make it better?
PS: Noted that ideally 6% life steal is fine for high DPS chars, but i just don't wanna spend another 200m-300m for DPS.
