Diablo® III

Newbie needs some good advise.

I got the game for last Christmas, and my demon hunter character is the one I play the most. I had a question earlier last month and was informed to my chagrin my character sucked after a=the hundreds of millions I had spent. As a newbie who has and still likes Diablo 2 I went for sets and armor and dexteirty, which I guess was a mistake, so I have started to re equip my DH, but so far I still suck. I have a 2 socket manticore which with rubies come out to 1617 dps and about 2200 damage. I have a couple of drops a calamity with only 939 dps. Natalya's Slayer at 733, danetta's Spite 1026.3 dps. I got a Mempo drop yesterday but has 190 intelligence and no dexterity and think this should go on my Wizard character. I am bummed I can not seem to get to even what I was told an average 3500 damage. Any guidance would be appreciated.. I only have about 11 million and change right now, but get about 2-5 million a day playing. Thank-you in advance for any help..

pull 1 ruby out of that bow and add a emerald, a marquise emerald if you can... when you can

start crafting I believe you have enough de if you are picking them up
bracer > glove > shoulder > amulet

Newbie here....What is shsh, As to crafting my luck there sucks. Just got legendary plans for demon armor, Crafted a belt it looked sucky so I auctioned it for a net loss due to the fiery brimstone and all the other stuff plus money. some of them require items needed for hellfire ring, which I do not have... I got 2 sets of keys just have not played with it. As to jewels I have an emerals just below marq. as they are 20 mill to craft, plus 5 mill to remove.

Just one sentence describe it all.

The Ruby Marq you have worth more than all your gears combined. Does not make sense. Furthermore, how can you put a Marq Ruby in a crap Manti? Dismantling it will cost you 5 mil. 1 green and 1 red Radiant will do atm.

Shsh is sharpshooter. It is showing your stats at full Critical chance. You have decent critical chance but rather low critical damage. Your dex is also low. These are the 2 main reasons why your dps is rather low. IF you are getting 2 to 5 million everyday, i would suggest you to save up and go for a major upgrade

Ya now.When I started this project every item I had was a set or legendary item, becuase I did not understand the game and it came with no instructions. I ended up a tank with high dex, but had no crit chance ot damage. The one item I never got was a high level Manticore. I went for the fastest with the highest DPS listed. Of course now I know DPS alone is nothing which is why when I discovered by accident "Monster Power" I had problems. Oh well it is only a game right? I was hoping for a little more helpful comments like upgrade this item for this item.

Sorry to hear that.

Have you tried crafting with demonic essence? This is the most economical way for upgrade. You can get 200+ to 300 dex for amulet, bracer, gloves and shoulders.

For purchase, you can buy a dead man legacy with at least 19% attack speed and more dex.

Yes I have used the demonic essence in crafting the amulants and for some of the demonic armor who's plans I just got on a drop. Like I said my crafting has been a big bust for me except the jewels. Most Of what I have on now is from drops. I take a look at the dead man I will take a look at them an see if I can not snag a better one. I got a couple more than I can not seem to sell and will likely salvage them. I had some real high dex items before, but had no crit chance or damage on them. Like I said I thought I was pretty good with a ton of dex and heavy armor. I just walked through inferno level, then I discovered :Monster Power and became humble. Someone said something nice that he never had seen so much armor, but person later pointed out the build was crap.
