Diablo® III

New results on Emerald vs Ruby!

Thanks for the update, great work again, glad to see rubies shine through a bit more than in the original analysis.

Hey Iria,

Very nice paper on DPS for D3, quite helpful.

All the best with your PhD (thought you were a Finance PhD student on first glance of your paper).

Peace.

Damage calculators with 1 click profile importing available why bother with this?

Swap emerald and ruby on your weapon sockets, in profile import, and click calculate.....Done.

In a nutshell rubys will be better in weapons at lower lvl, and for lvl 60 toons with low CC/CD %'s.

CC/CD is king in this game, has been from the beginning. Even a Marquise Ruby @ it's current 160/160 will not change that.

Nope, low CD makes Emeralds better.

High ehn damage % and high CD makes Ruby a better choice.

High CC (only marginally) and high weapon damage (taking into account jewelry damage) make Emeralds better.

Those are the only factors that are left in the equation when you reduce it.
