2) try buying/crafting an amulet without aspd but with AR/Armor and higher CC and CD
This is what I think you should do. I mean, crafting gloves are fine....but you NEED CC and IAS. And probably AR and CD....all of which can, somewhat, be reasonably found on AH. And you'd probably also want maybe armor or VIT. There's not alot of variability.
With ammy, there is. You NEED CC and CD. Everything else is a bonus....and you can adjust your gear around to accommodate it.
CD+CD+400LOH....sweet....maybe its time for a Mempo Setup
CD+CD+800LOH.....even better....won't need LoH on a ring.
CD+CD+AR+Armor+VIT....like what I did: http://us.battle.net/d3/en/forum/topic/9561126068#1
The thing to keep in mind with the IAS build...is that since you don't have an OS on your Chant Will....you NEED to get the most out of the CD on your ammy. So start your searches with 8CC and 80CD and don't settle for less....maybe even 90CD. Without the IAS, the options are much, much better. You can even stick AR on there as well. And ALOT of INT is good too, because INT = AR. For a long time I ran with an ammy with like 285 INT + OS (58 more INT!!), 96 CD and 8 CC. That was worth about 35 All res....which was nice.
I like where you're going though. That's a really nice wand and will take you far. I had a 1.79 wand that was just 1208 DPS and carried that through all the way up to about 230k.
So, nice job....and good luck with ammy crafting!
