LoH scales with AS, the 2 handed tempest rush build has a very slow attack speed. LoH is a pretty horrible stat for slow AS builds. So yes, LS IS that good when you are doing a TR spec. It will vastly increase your survivability.
You have only 220k Effective HP's (Damage reduction/HP's) and a relatively low 83.9% Damage reduction (Armor/RA):
You can increase your damage reduction and your EHP (I.E., your survivability in higher MP's) by using passive skills like "seize the initiative" and "One with everything (assuming you have or intend to stack a single resistance in addition to RA)" as well as using a different mantra like "Mantra of Evasion/Hard Target"
Those 3 things would put you at 87.3% damage reduction and 279k EHP. The mantra alone would put you at 243K EHP and 85.7% damage reduction respectively. (I know the passives you use add to your TR build). Try the LS and the mantra and see how that feels. That's my advice,
03/15/2013 09:05 AMPosted by MythrandiaRight now I'm using Tempest Rush which only procs LoH 25% of the time and it's getting rather difficult to stay alive even on MP 3. My question is if I had say 5% life steal and dealing around 100k sheet DPS (155k with Tempest Rush), would I be able to progress onto higher MP levels and stay alive? I have about 35k life and 300 resist all.
