250k dps windforce dh. hit the limit

hi, I am a demon hunter with big love for windforce.
With current stats, I can maneuver through mp 8 without much difficulty.

I'm currently in the barrier where I can not move forward with dps and ehp.
Could you guys help me to gain more dps without losing the ehp or vise versa.

my budget is 100m.

thanks!

Thanks guys. especially those who gave serious details on scrupulous ways to improve my demon hunter within 100m budget.
( I've started with 100m. After the purchase, I've sold my previous worn gears and bought another gear after gear.)

I manage to raise 50k DPS and while sustaining my EHP.
now, I'm at 300k dps and 332k EHP.

Now since i sold couple of previous gears, I now have another 100m to spend!
Am I really in the brick wall now?

You could squeeze another 2% cc on that ring (non nat). Shouldn't cost you that much

To be completely honest, at this point you may need to get a better windforce.

Wow I didn't even look at your WF. You don't have native CD.

windforce doesn't come with native cd with a socket.

I ran into a brick wall with my WW w/o soc. it does have 63cd on it. I was able to get to 195k with it.

Get a little more cc on your none nats ring, or better bow. I just couldn't afford a new WW so I went with Manti. But it's good to see players using WW, and with high dps.

God you must have been lucky with drops or duel wielding credit cards to get that lovely gear..

any ways, I don't see much improvement gear wise that with a low budget. Every slot looks like it will cost over 100m to upgrade.

You could aim for a 250-260 dex nats boot or upgrade the rings.

the rare ring you had might worth a upgrade -

Trifecta or a batter average dmg ring. The ones with 30-60 avg dmg, dex, 45 CD, 5.0 plus cc
Squeezing a CC to the nat ring will dramatically boost lots of dps.

Theres few amulet with more dex, CD and CC - this will boost lots of dps

If you have more gold and cash - get a mempo CC

unbuffed.

Why say no to additional damage if one has good positioning, at the very basic.

I would worry less about your dps and more about your eHP.

You are at 195k eHP which is ok, but should be improved.
Dps wise you are at 217k dps unbuffed

I should definitely increase some eHP by sacrificing the dps.

No need to sacrifice dps.

There are plenty of pcs of gear that you have that can be improved.
Witching Hour
Helm w/socket
Amulet
Ring

So in other words you are not close to the limit yet.

he only has 100m currently.. with the exception of a great snipe, most of it will be small incremental changes..

Op should just save a while longer and blow it all on a rare ring with slightly higher dps and good ehp(vit + ar)

It's not true. Ditch the Ice Climbers for Zunimassa's Trails. Check my profile, will be DPS boost for ya, even with the Dex loss. Plus you will get 12% MS bonus so that you can drop your Lacuni's and get either Strongarms or Rare bracers. With a rare bracer you can go for 150 dex/150 vit/AR and 6 CC. I'm finding it very hard to believe that your Witching hour really does more for you than an Inna's Favor.

I've been using a Windforce forever. I've had 300k dps with one, but right now I'm playing around 200k dps because I added to my eHP. + % to Elemental is huge for WF user. Zunimassa's Trail up to 8%, Inna's Favor to 8%, Tal Rasha's Allegiance up to 6% and SoJ up to 6%. Possibility of 28% more damage as Elemental is dang good. (Although not logical, you could add Frostburn Gauntlets for another 6% and bring it up to 34%)

There's a lot of opportunities for better items, just remember, you don't need to be cookie cutter, it is ok to go a little off the wall. For Instance, I have a 3pc Zunimassa's Set, and it looks glorious on a DH. But it's great for the eHP.

Where have you been? I miss your posts lol

Nway, 195k ehp is low in my opinion. See if you can sacrifice like 10k dps, for additional ehp. I am sure you will notice the increase in your survivability. And the game somehow becomes more enjoyable for me that way.
