I got mine as a drop in stonefort on MP4

1261.5 dps
185 dex
10%ias
94% crit dmg
2 os

It made a good birthday gift, (tried it though, ended up going back to Danetta's because I prefer DW)

I stole it off a fat guy in the fields of slaugter, after I killed him. I was not to happy, because I have been looking for a 2 soc Manticore with 1200+dps. Better luck next time, I guess.

Really sick of seeing 2 soc 1200 dps INT manticores priced astronomically higher than superior DPS 1 soc dex ones myself...


True, and because of this you can find some great steals for awesome 1 soc manticores, if you have the patience to stalk the AH. Sniped mine for under 200 mil. I've seen people spend more than triple that on 2 soc manticores in the 1200 dps range that do less dps.

I haven't got one yet. I'm hoping to actually roll one.. I've gotten 12 Manti drops so far and none of them rolled decently. I'm a scrooge and I ain't buying it. :)

Yep AH is built on noobs and wishful thinking right now, just keep boycotting the stupid prices and they will continue to decay. Really sick of seeing 2 soc 1200 dps INT manticores priced astronomically higher than superior DPS 1 soc dex ones myself...


So that is not completely accurate. Even an INT rolled 2 socket manti could be better than a DEX rolled 1 socket if all relatively equal. Say for example you have a 1300 dps DEX rolled 1 socket manti with a 100% gem and you have 50% CC, and you have a 1300 dps INT rolled 2 socket manti with 2 100% gems. Depending on the amount of DEX rolled on the first manti, you will likely see greater dps in the INT rolled manti, by the order of 20-30k.... I know this because I have a 1 socket manti, infact I have 3 1 socket mantis.. and I have two 2 socket manti's and I have tried combinations of both... the 2 socket manti always seems to be better..

The better the dps the higher the price.

Btw, Im talking paper dps here, not actual. As that is what most people seem to care about these days.

If they have the same DPS and Crit-damage roll, you are right Aki. I think Sepharoth's and Otaking's point is that I can buy a one socket bow with 1300 dps, dex, and a higher crit damage roll that costs less and does more damage (both paper and actual) than say an 1150-1200 dps 2 socket, int, lower crit-damage bow. Many people value 2 sockets too much and overlook that the 1 socket bows can be better/cheaper in certain cases.

Just had the perfect opportunity to test this. My Manti (1 soc, 1360dps, 220 dex, 95 crit) cost 180 mil. My buddy bought his for half a billion (2 soc, 1280 dps, 190 dex, 90 crit)

On comparison, his Manticore would add 10k dps to my char at a 320 mil price difference. (and i think he got a really good price on his Manti, as far as 2 socketed ones go, so the price differnece could actually be higher) It's a good example of how the 1 socketed manticores can be the most cost-effective option.

It's all about hitting that bottleneck on your overall dps should you prioritize your upgrade on manticore, you might gain another 15k dps by spending 100m -200m on a balanced amulet.
