Manticore or Calamity

I would like to play higher MP easier.

A two sockets manticore will gives me little damage upgrade (like 15% at best) for an astronomic sum of gold. Belt, ring and helm upgrade would be cheaper and grant me higher DPS boost.
I paid my manticore 8mils and I get better DPS than 200m manticore 2 sockets. I think I need 1 billion to get that 15-16% damage upgrade.
I used asian calculator to compare DPS. I didn't compare with a ruby instead of an emerald so the second socket only grants me +100% CD.

Would a calamity be a better choice? I see a lot of 1700DPS calamity being used on high mp DH.

I think its up to your play style to decide which one to get. I haven't seen the calculations but manticore probably hits harder. Also, just my opinion, you should try using d3up or other calculators that help you get your money's worth for dps upgrades. I just recently got my calamity for 200m for fun and I only lost 15k-20k paper dps compared to my manticore. A decent dps upgrade from a glance for you would be maybe a WH that shouldnt cost too much.

i use manticore when i go in a group, when i solo or in a !@#$ty group, i will use calamity

it is really all depends on whta your style is.

i 'grew up' using a windforce... never a xbow. I recently i switched to calamity for an even faster attack rate...

ive since tried to use a manticore, outside of a strafe build, and just couldn't get used to the slower play style.

but it's not as easy as calamity or manticore cuz your gear requirements change with both.

with a calamity average damage is more crucial than crit chance and vice versa with manticore.
