Diablo® III

To Skorn or not to Skorn, that is my question

I cant decide whether getting a Skorn for my current build would be an upgrade worth the money I would have to put into it. The dps change in the tooltip always seems to be lower by anywhere from 4k to 13k, but would socketing it bring it into being an upgrade? What kind of minimum stats on a Skorn would I need to make it worthwhile?

It could be a DPS and survivability upgrade (with 5+% life steal) but you would likely need to get some crit chance on your amulet/rings/helm to see the dps upgrade from it. Not sure what the market for a Skorn looks like on hardcore which will determine how high of stats you should look for.

Then again you really really need some crit chance in those slots anyways - like a basic int Litany might be good to replace that rare.

The tooltip without gems is really, really off.

Ruby is ~+51k for me for most weapons, so if a Skorn you are looking at is showing -13k vs your marquis gemmed weapon, you can rest assured that the Skorn will be a substantial DPS upgrade for you.
