That is a pretty insane sword. Question, why do you prefer a sword over a say a high DPS axe or mace. I actually have a decent sword. I have 1055dps sword, with Prim stat, 60 CD, socket and L/S. However, it lowers my DPS(even with the weapons master passive). My Echoing fury is faster, deals more damage. So not sure whats the fuss all about with a Sword.

Lets Hear it Nikeboy/Crypter.


For a S&B who tends to have higher CC and lower CD due to shield and where paper dps is a good approximation for true dps (unlike WW), a sword is better than an equivalent dps axe/mace when your CC is about 40-45% or so before Weapon Master is applied.


So take me for example. I have high Crit chance. Not sure what is considered low CD for a sword and board, but lets assume Im low now because of weilding a shield. My Echoing fury is still giving me higher Paper DPS than my Sword. Again, my sword is 1055 with Main stat(58), crit damage 60, socket and L/S. Maybe I should go sword with L/S and throw my witching hour back on.

But none the less my mace is giving me more DPS and its faster.

Yea that sword is not so good. Get a sword with equivalent stats/dps as your ef and your dps would be higher.

Yeah, you're comparing a 1204 dps mace with 155 str to a 1055 dps sword with 58 str and 60 CD. Weapons aren't equivalent. If you found a 1204 dps sword with 155 str, the sword should provide more dps after weapon master.

just noticed something. My storm shield is reflecting 25% block chance. However, its 34%. What the hell is wrong with blizz and their forum sites.

The SS +block% broke on the site when all of the set item bonus issues appeared.

As far as I believe, Bloodlust only heals u based off your Rend hits. However, lifesteal on other equipment will heal u based on other skills.
