Hmmmm. My post vanished into the ether.
Re-writing it again.
So I guess I was really looking for advice from a DW DH, sorry for being hostile, just the WD forums aren't quite like this :(
anyone who DW's have any advice for me?
'DW advice please?' is generally more welcomed than 'I bought a DH, how is s/he?'
Partially because of the tone, partially because it's hard to answer a non-specific question. Surely you know that feeling when your gf/wife asks 'how do I look in this?'
Kirus and Redcell are the resident DW experts here, you really should take a look at what they're doing. I DW once in a while, here is my take. How do I look?
We're more or less equal, but the difference is that I spent less than a fifth what you did. The reason most of us here agree that your gold/money is wasted, is because of all those marq gems. Now, marq gems, in and of themselves isn't a problem, in fact they're very good if you have the spare gold, and your gear is already there. Your problem however, is that your gear is cheap compared to your gems.
Each marq gem is about 85m, x 8 = 650~700ish m. Equipping yourself with nothing but flawless squares while spending the remainder on gear would've been a much wiser investment.
How do we improve your gear?
Let's start with your chest.
For half the price of any one of your gems, you could've gotten one with 150 dex and 200 vit. In fact, I just sold a 170 dex 190 vit 11% life for 40m last week.
For 20m, you could've gotten a pair of pants with 60 resists or 100 vit. Or one with 150 dex if you were so inclined.
Your Mempo, while really really rad, doesn't fit much the rest of your gear. I personally think a Nat's sight with CC and Nat's boot for CC bonus, and 2 rare rings is much better value for money(gold?). Of course, your boots could be much better too. As above, you could've gotten one with over 200 dex for a tenth the cost of any one gem, or similar dex and some vit.
Another option is Nat's sight + Nat's ring with 40% CD and a pair of Ice climbers for the eHP, or Zuni boots for moar DPS.

Your WH is nice. Some people have mentioned an Inna's with 8% holy damage and some resist/vit may be better overall. I think either is fine though I prefer WH for the attack speed. If you pick the Inna's belt, you can put on a Nat's cloak for similar eHP, a skill bonus, more discipline and
another 130 dex. I go with the Inna's because I don't like the way the Nat's cloak look. I'm weird that way.
Your weapons, their price aside, you would do better with emeralds instead of rubies in them. The reason why emeralds are better, is because that rubies only benefit the weapon they're slotted in
, whereas emeralds benefit both
weapons by way of raising your overall damage.
Maybe you went with rubies because you thought that your crit chance was too low for your crit damage to make any difference and so you opted for more average damage. While that is right in theory
, the better solution would've been to get more crit chance. Because crit damage is where it's at when you're dual wielding.
TLDR; you could've gotten gear with more dps, vit and resist using the same gold you spent on the gems. I'm not saying you wasted gold crafting those gems, just that people usually max out their gear before maxing out their gems. You kinda did the things the other way round.
