As many of you have heard, The new PvP system has been implemented into the PTR (Public Test Realm) This has brought upon many new challenges, Build ideas and an entirely new Diablo 3 play experiance.
This has been a warm welcome to the Diablo 3 way of life and at this time people are starting to relize the importance of EHP (Effective Health Points) and DPS.
To have a well rounded PvP capable hero you must find that balance between both EHP and DPS.
Not only with the new tier of gems will getting higher EHP more convient but it will also be more cost effective. The Amethyst at this time are one of the cheapest gems that you can buy on the auction house. This means that the best time to work on your EHP is now before PVP goes public.
Not only are gems an important way to boost your EHP, It is also a good thing to mention that sheilds and block chance overall are a great boost to EHP.
So if you are playing on the PTR or have been reading/watching information regarding the current PvP situation, You have probably already heard that there is alot of 1-2 shot duels going on right now. The reason behind this is based upon a few factors, 1) Lack of EHP
2) Lack of % dmg pvp mitagation 3) Lack of experiance on builds and item factors based upon the brand new PvP system.
So my advice to all of you is, Build upon your heros with EHP in mind. Practice new builds vs differant heros and please don't hesitate to leave a comment below.
