Average Arcane Power = 82.38 (out of max 114)
Average life gain per second = 7688.67 (100.00% from LoH)
so actually my dagger setup has more dps and insane life return.
Average life gain per second = 14767.61 (20.76% from LoH) for dagger vs
Average life gain per second = 7688.67 (100.00% from LoH) for wand
TL;DR : 2.2ls is about 80 percent in the first case, so 2.2ls = 4* 379 loh = 1500loh+ @300k dps
gives more options running at lower mit, and you also get better with 3ls

Wait a minute. What is your APS dagger vs wand?? Is it a Chant's wand? If so, how are you getting your attack speed with the dagger so close to the wand? I see WW casts per second are 1.79 vs 1.80. How is that possible??
Also, what breakpoints are you at dagger vs wand. Thanks in advance! Very interesting.

Dagger can have up to 1.66 aps, so it's the same as OS Chant.
LS is not underrated, I believe many of us here agree that LS opens many gearing possibilities. People don't use LS, not because they think it's bad, the reason is the availability of LS Daggers. Not many Daggers can match the DPS of Chant set.

It's all over the forums before lol I think LS Daggers with IAS CD and OS are worth 1b+ anyway, usually 2b, and they don't appear often. I was searching for one for weeks and then I gave up.
I need to start saving. :\
I havent looked back after going lifesteal dagger...its hard to find a good one but damn its a powerful piece of gear.
I can easily tank mp10 ghom without using diamond skin, thats only lifesteal from wicked wind and explosive blast. if i try it with 1k loh i fail miserably with the same mitigation.
Also it just gives you a free pass to go for dps...because dps=lifesteal, whereas relying on loh theres a limit to how much you can have. the future is lifesteal, until blizz f**ks me over somehow.
aaand...it makes a decent archon too.

Agree. I've been doing this for a while too, I'm testing some with Evo and Electrify instead, just because I can take a Maniac with Evo but I can't with GC. Not too sure which I prefer tbh.
