What raises your DPS?

Demon Hunter
I have no clue what ALL Raises your DPS.
Crit Damage > IAS > DEX
I find IAS > Crit damage > dex
What exactly is IAS?
Increased attack speed, and it's a little overrated. Yes, it increases you DPS on paper, but it's only effective when you can stand and be a turret. It's not that useful while kiting... and inferno = kiting.
Increased attack speed.
Everything that affects your displayed DPS:

Weapon DPS
Dexterity
Damage Bonus
Attack Speed
Crit Chance
Crit Damage
+Damage on Items

I'm sure I'm missing something...

There are other things that can raise your actual DPS but will not show up on the inventory screen (+% damage to skill attacks, etc)

It's extremely useful when kiting up to a certain point. Try stutter-stepping with 0 and then try again with even 45% (15 on rings/amulet) and you'll notice a huge difference.
