What's your Armor and All resist ?

Posts: 24
I'm just wondering cause other classes are going up to 650+ all res and easily 6.5K armor and more ....

What are you guys running at ? I'm at 450+ all res and 4.4K armor.

Basically i'm wondering if all res and armor are important or I should simply focus on damage and vit.

It's a simple equation really.

Do you die often? If so, buff up your EHP. If not, go for DPS.
Personally, I HATE dying, so I focus more on EHP, but try keep my DPS up there.

Armor/Res-wise, I'm pretty similar to you with 4.6k armor and 495 All res.

The thing to remember is, it's pretty hard to get armor above a certain point, and it starts to come at a price once you pass about 4k I've found. All res is a bit easier, but again to get big all res, you're usually sacrificing affixes on key slots (or paying through the nose) eg. rings/amus.

Vit is the easiest way for a DH to rack up the EHP, but like DPS the effect of vit is cumulative with that of your mitigation. Raw HP is also the weakest form of EHP. Personally, I'm pretty happy with my res/armor as it is... when I look for upgrades now, I try and maintain my current mitigation while increasing DPS and vit.

with Perfectionist and folower i got 5072 armor, 475 resist and 62k hp (ruby on head) and 149k DPS

I do MP3 without die, for now is my sweet spot ... i want to do at least MP5 ... so i need more DPS but i still do not know how to do that and keep my defense.

I find that in duel, your mitigation against other classes are actually very important.
with perfectionist and boar, i am at around 1070 all resist, 5000 armor, 100k hp.

It reminds me my old tank DH in version 1.0.3

IMO DH should always go for max EHP. You must get very high HP to achieve that (like 70k+), keep armor/res +- 4000/400 (not so good to get more than these).

~440 all res, 55k HP, 4255 armor. Doing 206k DPS. Recently upgrade a few pieces that gave me an increase of 100 all res but drop my HP by 6k and DPS by 10k, but I can now happily do MP6.

I currently have, with no Perfectionist/Boar/Enchantress:

43087 health
4086 armor
308 AR

I would like to boost my AR to at least 350 and ideally 400, but since I'm still mp0 farming, and have no interest in PvP, it's not a big priority to me to boost it right now.

I should of ask as well what MP you guys are farming for key ? I die from time to time at MP5-6 but not really often. What I figured is that even with NS on, I run out of discipline quite often so i'm wondering if i'm doing something wrong here.

Here's a link to my page: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/profile/Gh0stMaj0r-1454/hero/29982627
