cheapest way to get to 3.01

what is the cheapest way for me to get to 3.01 and keep my 53% crit. My profile is showing my low MP farming gear. I have a yellow ring that gives great defense stats and 4.0 crit and 8% ias and a storm crow that gives 4.5% crit and has 450LoH. my current APS is about 2.75 i think is how it reads on the sheet. I think 3.01 while maintaing current defense except maybe a little less LoH because 1600 LoH is a little high, would be my next step. I know I need more health, my health in my best gear is only 35k, but I think 3.01 is more important, but am not sure which is the cheapest way and best way to do it. Thanks for the help guys.

Andariel's Visage (no crit loss) + 9IAS
Inna's (+1 Crit +9 IAS)

interesting. Innas pants I can look certainly look into, I am a little hesitant to go with andy because of the fire damage... wont matter for ubers, but high mp may cream me.

also I would then lose 2 sources of LoH putting me back to like 500 LoH which wouldnt be high enough... what would you suggest?

Thing about 3.01 is you don't need as much LOH as you're hitting way more. I'd suggest getting a neck with more LOH and capping it at that. I run 3.01 and 2.73 on just the LOH on my neck.

So maybe look at picking up a ring or amulet with more LOH?

good call, I have to have 2 sources of APOC. This is my dilemma, there seems to be no easy answer here... I hate this point in gearing.

I am doing some theory crafting here. i calculated that if I got a wand that had 1.79 APS i would need a total of 69% IAS which I could get if I got a mempo and increased my IAS on current items... I think that is the way i want to go because I just dont like lacunis, or atleast I cannot find one that I like anyway because I lose too many bonuses that I get from normal bracers. I think the overall cost would be billions though... anyone have any input?

I think I will get an offhand that has apoc as well on it, that way I can get a cheap andy's helm so I can atleast hit 3.01 for ubers.

what yo think , CM/WW build aren't cheap at all , high end CM/WW build cost at least 1~2 B...

if you want cheap way , try WW barb ....

You can't hit 3.01 cheaply. That's only for the 1%.

@op why not just use cold snap instead as it seems as ur trying to hit 3.01 the hard way and imo its not worth it unless u can maintain ur defensive stats while doing it.

cold snap will give u the freeze lock advantage of 3.01 but ofc will not give u the extra loh return or added dps from having extra apoc for chain reaction

Ido use cold snap, but I want to try it with 3.01 AND coldsnap.

Andy's visage and lacuni prowlers.
But then you have to get APOC Force. Not gonna be cheap.

Theres cheap and good. 3 is so no worth it with crap stats on defense thats why ppl move back down.

Best bang for buck way for u is 9 ias 4 cc ring , 9 ias 3+ CC lacuni, 1.79 wand and replace source and chest for 9 ias versions.

Thats 68% ias and 1.79 x 1.68 = 3.004

Shouldnt cost more than 300m. Total. Tal chest being most expensive if you want AR again.

Way im gonna do it cos I never go less tanky so it's gonna cost me fortune, is keep my rare bracer, 9 Mempo, 9 WH, unity for loh. and 1.79 wand. I already have 9 ias apoc source.

Thats gonna be 1.2B.

Its hard to get 3 the right way IMO.
