So I am in a rut as of late. I have been getting the advice to upgrade my rings, ammy, and bracers. But I am not sure what I should be looking for to upgrade me on them, and I only have a budget slightly under 1bil, which I know is not that much nowadays anymore.
I have been trying hard to get my dps higher, (I am at 260K unbuffed, and want to get to 300K), but it seems the only way to do that is to sacrifice more vitality which I am already pretty low at.
Any advice or help is appreciated, because I am stuck on what to get to push me over this plateau I have reached. Also, I did not know that you guys needed donor gear, and I happen to have an amulet that no one seems to be buying that I could donate, its not a bad one for a starter barb.
One glaring issue I see with your set up is the inefficient stacking of attack speed. The primary reason you needed to do this is because you skimped on the EF. You need to get rid of that thing and get a .24 or if you can a .25 EF to save you some IAS stacking. As it stands, you are forgoing a lot of crit damage (offhand ring) and crit chance (mainhand ring) which is very inefficient.
And you are at 260K with no SoJ which I would never recommend. You should really consider an SoJ in one ring slot even as it is truly the biggest tDPS gain you can get from any piece of jewelry in the game.
I can tell you have made a lot of bad gearing decision based upon this paper DPS you are chasing. Go to d3rawr.com/d and import your profile. You will see your tDPS vs Elites value on the left hand side. THIS is truly the only measure of in-game performance you should be tracking. Do yourself a favor and leave paper DPS on the shelf.
First things first. Upgrade your EF to one with .24 or more APS, crit damage, socket and str.
IMPORTANT EDIT: You have to decide where you are going to get your slot of Lifesteal. Putting on a mainhand weapon will only gimp the average damage which inturn will effect your tDPS. Consider an offhand LS EF. You will forgo a slot of CD but might be able to make it up on your mainhand. The other Option is a str/cc/cd high damage mainhand EF with an offhand dagger stat stick...but that would definitely require a cold Stone of Jordan.
Then come back and we'll see what we can do to maximize your damage and EHP (health) potential.
P.S. The amount of vit and ar you have stacked on your rings is scary. Please start crafting shoulders of vitality immediately so we can use those slots as DPS slots and not health slots.
