Well, a blue commented on a design change to reflect damage since it is dealing more damage than intended, so hopefully that helps some eHP concerns...


Pretty sure that was a bug fix that was already implemented or will be soon...

EHP stands for Epic Harry Potter,
DPS is Divine Punishment Story.

or it could just be, Effective Health Pool. >;D

EHP is a pretty well-known term, but I can understand how the lingo can get in the way of the content if you are not familiar with the ideas.

EHP is short for Effective Hit Points. What it measures is the total HP that your toon would have when you also take into account damage reduction from armor, resists, 30% melee reduction (for monks and barbs), other reduction sources. For more information on this term amongst a whole bunch more, check http://www.clicktoloot.com/p/combat.html

Hope this helps.

I wish I have more DPS without lower EHP.

if you want both, then up both.

got nothing to do with 'ratio' mate.

ratio only comes into place when your referring to fighting RD elites. but even then it's irrelevant or should i say 'inaccurate' as EHP doesnt take into account LOH and LS attributes which hugely influence RD surviability.

what im saying is this is sorta a pointless thread because of this fact.


this is true.
Also for the semi-illusion of 10:1 ratio.

When you don't have 10:1 armor/res,
you don't get "diminishing returns", what you get is.. what I coined "unbalanced returns".
They're not the same, fellas. @_@

But one can override the other if either armor or res is high enough,
it doesn't necessarily have to be at 10:1.

Take a look at barb's Leap Iron Impact for example,
They become invincible for 3 seconds when their armor is buffed.
Also one can stack armor passives and use Warcry - Harden Wrath, while ignoring most of resistance completely.

10:1 is just a guideline for balance, not a gospel.

(something like... "Marcus 10:1 - Thy armor shall be 10-fold of thy resistance!! said the spirits of the gods.")

Mwuahahaha!!

if survivability is an issue...up your EHP.

you want to kill things faster up your DPS.

If you can't account for real DPS and convert sustain into ELPS, that's true. But some of us can. So the thread isn't over yet on that front :)
