I'm planning to upgrade my offhand. I'm currently looking on some high weapon damage/3% LS/OS/CD on AH right now. My question is it worth it to sacrifice my 161dex vs high damage weapon with no dex? Since i will be losing some ehp but will gain dps but at the same time since I will be using that as my main hand it will maximize the damage of bells.
Sorry for bad english
I just did the exact same thing last night. In my case I had to give up 255 dex and a bit of vita, but the DPS gain was too big to ignore. It added almost 7% to overall DPS and 12% to MH damage. I can replace the lost stats as I add paragon levels, but my starting defense and life was high enough that I could afford to sacrifice some.
Your case is interesting because you have plenty of DPS already. Your mitigation is decent, but your life pool is well above average, and your existing sustain is very solid. In my opinion, losing a bit of dex will not put you at an unacceptable level defensively. I'd say go for it.
You can forgo dexterity on your offhand, especially if you find a high DPS item with CHD and a socket, you will increase your eHP and DPS. Look for black damage weapons and don't tighten the affix requirements too much - start with min/max and % dmg with socket and CHD.
