well my ehp certainly wasn't the cause of my death.
i only spent ~25-30mil hc gold for all my gear including 7 star gems n thats why i said i lost ~100mil(sc gold).
i dont know how much u spent but i definitely wouldn't wanna go for your setup since ur hc wd has two major disadvantage over my dead wd.
- kill things much slower(takes more than double the time) i thought my 70k dps wd killed things super slow compared to my sc wiz but wow less than 30k dps? lol
- low dps and slow killing also means you are taking more damage since enemy will stay alive for much longer, therefore inflicting more damage oc. maybe u wont understand this concept since ur sc char has less dps than my wd doh
you might think ur wd has higher survivibilty due to ~70% higher ehp but you are wrong since my dps is ~210% higher than you. not to mention it takes you around double the time to gain same exp, rare drops..
Having similar gear totals (profile not updated)
Gold Spent: ~8mil
Your points are valid, but his set-up (and therefore mine) have a few advantages.
1st) You don't die from small pecks, but from large chunks of damage. Therefore, eHP are of a greater concern since damage is not a a flat scale but a bunch of spikes. Therefore, a higher eHP pool is more important than a higher DPS since you --can-- be knocked out in a quick bad combo, death is never slow, most of us are proficient enough to not die to whites pecking at us.
2nd) You have a critical mistake on your character, you have 0 LoH, 69 regen, and 0 LS (excuse me if I am wrong, but I glanced quickly and this is what I saw) that was your fatal error. Running those stats, just looking at those stats, you were destined to die once you began pushing the content to where your other stats would have allowed.
3rd) Preemptive "your gear sucks" all earned in HC since day 2 of game launch, don't care if I have worse gear, but see point #2, that was your FATAL error and would have ended your character eventually
Edit: You spent that much gold and had that little AR... you didn't study at all on this did you....

12/05/2012 01:42 PMPosted by LykoticYou have virtually 0 AR, and relying only on Lifesteal as a means to gain life back. Newsflash for you... HC and SC while the same game have a different value on gear. Listen man, all I am trying to do is help. Your character IS geared in a careless manner for HC (but I am guessing correct for SC).
Well... at least I carefully have thought out exactly what to do in every situation beforehand, not become so upset over something I forget basic knowledge about my character...
and you haven't even killed diablo in hc, n i didnt die duo to my gear.. n how can possibility help by giving me noob gear advice(?) when im already dead? so stop being a smartas ty.
well gl in hc with 32k dps, that must be real fun.. lol

Then you got the time it takes to die and the time I believe you have after having spirit vessel to wear off. I think you could have survived.
This is not a bad idea! I'll have to keep it in mind if this ever happens to me.
And 2s on normal, and if not mistaken, 3s if you run the jaunt rune.
