quick question about 3.01 bp

Wizard
So, I tried the 3.01 BP last night (w/ enchantress) and I loved it, but i want to get there without the ench bonus. With my 1.76 chants I need 71% ais on gear to get to 3.01. 70% gets me to 3.00 sheet aps.

I read on the tick rate guide that 3.001 gets me to 40 ticks. My question is how do I know if I'm at the 40 ticks when my sheet aps says 3.00?

Thanks. :D
Take your weapon APS and manually multiply it by your attack speed.

1.76 * (1+ 0.70) = 2.992
2.992 < 3.0001

So you do actually need to get 71% IAS from gear. (also the breakpoint is 3.0001, not 3.001)
Thanks for the quick response, bro.
BDF....do you need to manually calculate the weapon speed as well.

Because:

(1.4*1.08)+0.25=1.762
1.762*1.70= 2.995.

Granted, still not 3.0001. But that 0.003 difference between your calc and mine could make a difference for someone.

Didn't know that the weapon tooltip was rounded as well, nice catch.
2.992 vs. 2.995.....Do we know to what decimal the game goes or if the game rounds?
I'm pretty sure that it's been tested that the tooltips round, but the game goes out at least to the thousandths place.

However I don't currently have a source for this, just what I remember seeing one time.

That's my belief as well, since the dps calculations use the exact APS, not the rounded APS.
