First off, items that don't appear on my profile but are my actual main gear is :
Nats Embrace - 90 dex, 70 vit, 12 life, 55 all resist, 12 spike trap dmg bonus.
Vile Ward - 230 dex, 58 vit
Innas Temperence - 91 dex, 82 vit
and if I really need to switch defensive I have a 3k less dps bracer that adds All resist but loses 1.5 crit chance, and a set of gloves that adds 55 cold and 55 all resist, but I lose like 9k dmg.
If you look I obviously got a 2-socket Manticore with no dmg mod on it, pretty much making marquise rubys useless for myself at all. I found this manticore a long time ago, and it has served me well but always been something I wanted to upgrade last compared to the other gear I've slowly upgraded.
Anyways, I got a budget of around 75m atm with another 50-100m easily of gear I can sell that I don't use anymore, and whatever I would fetch for this Manticore now (probly 30-40m I'd guess?). Should I be looking to switch out for a similar manticore even if i lose dps but gain white dmg, so that I may gain more overall with a red gem over a green in the long run, or do I try to find me a calamity (I am thinking I need one in the 1150-1250 range at the least, with 85+ native crit and an OS, plus id like 40 percent mark chance so I know this !@#$ will be expensive lol), or do I just stick with this manticore because I don't have enough gold I think to even find something.
I personally just don't think I have enough of a bankroll at the moment to change and not even sure if the dps difference will be enough to make it worth changing, but I am open to anyone who's been testing out new Gems on the Test Realm that may have some advice on what I should do.
If changing weapons isn't the route to go with my budget, does anyone else have some suggestions on what I should do next? Sorta lost on where to go
