Unbuffed DPS mainly for Mantico:

LOL DPS < 100k
Noob DPS < 200k
Mediocre DPS > 200k
Good DPS > 300k
Great DPS > 400k
Godly DPS > 500k
OMFG DPS > 600k

with archery passive, 280k-300k is fine on mp10, as long as you're dps-ing consistently,

but wow I didn't realise the dps bar has been raised much higher nowadays.

This is my wonder too. Do anyone have reference MP10 Ghom kill time or eDPS rank for DH ?

So far my best MP10 Ghom at kill time at:
- 55 seconds on Bola-ID/EB --> around 2.5M eDPS
- 48 seconds on Cluster Grenades/EB

9 sec MP10, here you go :-)

Time taken 15 Second. Start RF at 6.10 sec and Ghom died at 21.19 = 15.09 sec.
9.2M eDPS

It was too tempting, could not resist :-)

Is your 15 sec without using snapshot mechanics? I can't look at YT at the moment, but if it is without gear swapping that 15 sec is extremely good.

No gear swapping mechanics. You just want to benchmark the actual eDPS possible.

I don't have a proper DH atm.

And last I check, I wasn't the one who came and posted wrong results.

Oh btw, beat your time then talk? Hmm, u've yet to beat Impreza's time. XD

15 seconds non swap RF is really impressive

No such thing as pro DPS - paypal, RNG drop, and xcopying website gearing invalidate that.

Good DPS is relative to the MP you're playing in, same with bad. There's also good and bad usage of said DPS.

Ghom runs :\ the dude doesn't even have any crowd control and kind of just sits there. If he could actually kill you things would change.

"boards don't hit back"

Why not bring up Nyan? I don't see the problem, he' simulating higher DPS anyway. It's the elephant in the room, isn't it.

If manual gears swapping like what we used to do with MF gears is fine but........

I dont' really know what you sayin... I mean I know what the MF gear swapping thing was about, but I'm not understanding what you're saying with how you worded this sentence.

The easy answer to this thread, imo, is that "good DPS" is maximizing your % weapon damage output with the skills you've decided to slot on your skillbar(preferably in a build that makes sense, based on a variety of ever changing gameplay factors). It's something that isn't mutually exclusive with your sheet DPS. Any 'Joe Nephalem' can fall into gold one way or another, and just copy what he sees from someone else's profile, look tight and post tight.

Nyan laughs in the face of sheet DPS anyway, that's why I called it the elephant in the room.

Too much obsession with sheet DPS, and not enough on actually maximizing the attacks you've chosen to use through DH experience. I guess gear can trump experience in this game, anyway.

That's all I meant, really.

Plus personally, it's easy for me to say this because my gear always sucks(relative to everyone that posts on the forums at least), so it forced me to squeeze every bit out of what I have available to me gameplay wise.

Well, we all know sheet DPS is not everything anyway, that is why keep the focus on MP10 eDPS.

Ghom, Azmodan, Belial are good eDPS tester as they can be easily reach and big enough to sustain constant damage.
- Generally, if one can survive MP10 Belial fight, they tend to have around 800K to 1M eHP.
- Acceptable MP10 elite kill time is when a class can perform around 2M+ eDPS.

To answer your question, pro dps is relative to what your doing. Even with 660k dps + SoJ on straft, it still sucks for playing mp10 (nyan tried).

Generally if you have ~ 300k dps with good eHP, I would consider it good because upgrades are gonna cost 1b+ most likely at this point.

@Cameo

I think you can get ur ghom time down to 12-13 seconds if you did 4 jagged spikes, rain of vengence, choking gas and let the ls from chakram heal you instead of RF.
