Well, Yes I think I relatively tried everything including SS and 2.73 dagger wiz (although Void thought my mit was not good enough). Only route I didn't take was LS sword b/c I knew it was going to be another spend big/sell low route. so I stopped there. I did locate a LS 10% sword but it was 18-20B. then another 15b-18B for right Tal Rasha Amulet...that's amost 36B-40B to make LS sword/sc wiz...
Actually, right now, I can make 2.73 chanto/os, 3.01/high LOH, 3.34/high LOH from the stuff in my stash.
Probably most of the dps chaser will say go sword/SC route - examples - Kiza, Boozor. Not sure about Zaska b/c of his relatively lower mit which is not up to my par but he does have crazy DPS so may be he kills fast before elite can do anything. But probably very very very expensive and finding the right sword is the biggest issue - probably you have to go through the private sector and locating the right seller is another question. These guys go through dprog/jsp to find the seller, negotiate and obtain the right items. I don't need that much trouble to go through that. I will jsut stick to RMAH. Hence, more difficult to gear sword/sc and you have to have patience which I don't have and connections.
Other than that, I think I have tried everything. Right now, I am liking 3.34 aps nat set route b/c I like seeing my wiz going ww/shard/freeze constantly. pretty cool sight. and yes, elite is frozen most of the time plus, I got 1600 LOH going.
I am planning to test relatively high dps 2.73 chanto/os set, 3.01 aps/high cc set, and 3.34 aps/semi high cc set- testing ground is core to azn (I believe it is the best testing route - you get three different elites - range/melee and azn with poison pool to test your sustainability).
I am planning to post gear pictures with stats and what I find. For now, while everyone is chasing a dps sword/sc wiz, I'm just going to play with chanto will until I nerf out.
I'm not a big theorycrafter - Void/Boozor are the guys who are extremely knowlegeable. I just learn from trying different gears and finding what I like the most from playing.
ps. oh, I also have Litany and elite reduction tal rasha which enable me up to 21% elite reduction. I sort of liked it esp wtih 90% base mit.
