Aight mr rmah.. you did good on most of ur gear.

1. If you get ls on a legendary, you are gimping ur dps. Furthermore duel wielding as Dah gimps ur dps. It has a +1 cool factor.

2. Gloves: you might find rare gloves cheaper...

3. Craft bracers.

4. Maybe u should get either a witching hour with 101+ dex and high crit damage or 160dex/60vit/8% inna favor

Your bows are uneven. It would be better to get either a)Danetta's Revenge with socket, b) 1050dps Calamity with socket, c) 1050dps 1H xbow with socket for a more balanced damage output.

A witching hour with 40~50% crit damage would boost your damage a heck of a ton too since you're dual welding, though that number won't necessarily be reflected on your paper dps, but you'll see that damage as ~700k crits when killing mobs.

If all you want is to boost the dps number on your toon, grab a 2 socket manticore and a 300dex dead man's legacy.

I know you probably spent a ton on that mempo and nat's ring. I'm said to say you wasted your money. I would actually dump both of them. Get another ring similar to your rare ring, get a nat's helm with 5~6 CC. Cheaper and more effective.

Also dump the Nat's cloak for an Inna's chest with <200 dex + <200vit and you still get the 130 dex bonus if you swap the belt for a WH.

That's the set up I do when I'm DWing. ~230k paper dps, 61.5% CC with 638% CD = crits at 800k. Could get more if I turn on steady aim, cull the weak and marked for death. But I'm lazy.

Thanks for the imput, i thought id go ls on one of my weps so i didnt have to rely on shadowpower for the ls but i think ill have to find a os calamity now, as for the 2x 1hs thats the only way i think i can see myself playing dh looks cool, anyway i had a dh way before but when i deleted all my chars so i wouldnt come back bl(that dident last long) so you think i should go os calamity? As for mempo i got it for 400 ish, my gold fund is pretty much done untill the rest of my flips go through.

Dual wielding is useless outside of cool points lol! so yea your going to have to drop that to make your dps climb easier.

you can use a calamity and dead mans legacy also basically anythingn with a dead mans legacy.

Personally I love the windforce. However if you wanna deal bigger damage you should probably go Calamity. It takes the right kinda person to really enjoy using the windforce.

I dident think dw would be that terrible so a dml would really increase my dps that much? Wouldnt looseing the 180cd hurt?

How can you mess up your DH...I thought this game was about building your own hero. Looks like you just copied off everyone else to me so what is there really to "mess up." Just continue following the template.

Stalmen, keep in mind I do have steady aim on, and usually i run with different gloves and an inna's belt so my dps is a little off right now. Best thing you can do for yourself dps wise is to get a DML with say... at least 18% IAS and 300 dex with at least a 10% damage increase on some stat you may use. I chose one with a bit lower because of the higher vit on it. If you really like the WF, getting one with around the same stats as mine is relatively cheap gold wise, 50-100M maybe even lower. Craft yourself some 6.0%CC bracers and try for a vit or AR roll on them. Add dex where you can and start getting some paragon levels.

just a side note, I bought a cheap calamity the other day for 3M (1106 dps) 11% IAS 49% damage and 89% CD with socket and bought a radiant star ruby to go with it and it its about a 20K increase in damage over my windforce... and that calamity is far from top tier. (yeah my ruby i bought was worth over 7 times what i paid for the item).

I second that!

Agree with the gurus above. A DH is supposed to be a glass cannon anyway, so any more than 1 hp is a waste.

Anything is possible.. haha.. Most of your upgrades from here will be from crafting bracers and then gloves..

It's more important to see you play though and make the most of what you already have.

DH is about FUN. play and see what you can come up with for builds. Then push it and see how far you can go or how fast you can kill etc.. That's the HUNTER'S JOURNEY.. It's not the destination.

Add me and lets just play some time..

Find more dexterity. A lot of your items could be replaced with items having more dex. 2300 is pretty low if you are expecting 300k dps without SS duel wielding.

I'd start crafting gloves, bracers, and amulets.

The crafted bracers with similar stats could get into the 300s dex and have CC.

Even found gloves can easily get near the 200s with similar CC, CD, AIS, crafted can be even better. These should be an easy upgrade.

Your amulet is nice, but 106 dex is low and no AIS. Craftables can roll very high dex.

Your inna's pants are also missing nearly 100 dex.

A decent dead mans legacy would greatly help I think. Your off hands DPS is ruining the calamitys. It averages the two, it doesn't stack.
