15,000 dps is nothing dude. My monk with 25k life, 8.2k armor, 800 resist all and a lousy non-loh 780ish dps weapon pulls off 16k - and I completely ignore DPS while I gear up. Not even stacking IAS at all. A3 inferno.
try surviving 5 minutes in hardcore mode with 25k life. my point is that i had to play far tankier then people in normal. also, the ah has far less items since only 4.1% of characters made are hardcore, so its much more difficult to get weapons with that high dps
You can easily do Inferno a1-a2 without dying with 25k life on a monk. Effective HP > HP.
I understand you're on hardcore and that makes things more difficult - but it also means you should be farming more than other people before trying to move on.
For Inferno I would think your DPS is to low. Gear up buddy, I just finished Hell and my DPS is 10k and I expect it to be higher by the time I reach the Butcher.
06/08/2012 01:40 PMPosted by machx0ri had 400 all res, 45k hp, 5.2k armor and 6k dps. is that too low?? i was all rares mostly lvl 59 and 60 with good stats. fffuuu i dont feel like starting again now
Took me 11.5K dps on my monk to get him down but my build/gear is super defensive with little (no) spirit dumps.
At 7.5K dps I just wasn't able to burn him down fast enough.
For Butcher there's little or no reason to have a super defensive build, he does very little damage to melee and the fire doesn't really deal all that much damage to monks/barbs (aside from having serenity to get through it anyway), I assume with seven sided/mantra of conviction he's quite doable with ~7k DPS, even if you take the time to hug a health shrine or two. I can kill him in 20 seconds with 25k DPS.
