Sorry, I know there are tons of these threads. But looking for some advice..
My budget is very limited (90 mill is all the gold I have in the world). There are a few things I want but with that budget can likely only afford one of them. I can farm MP2-3 with Goldskin and xp gear with little effort. Can do MP6-7 for key runs but it's quite slow. Any thoughts? Which of my wishlist items is the best bang for the buck?
-Cere knife with OS/CD/LS/1k DPS and black damage (cheapest one I've ever seen is 100 mil)
-Tal's amulet with at least the same or more CC/CD as my current ammy
-Pox with min 5% CC (without vit these are going for 60-70 mil minimum
-Zuni boots with AR, while keeping the current int/vit stats on my current set (easily 120-150 mil)
-Better blackthorne's with a high vit or int roll and keeps the AR
-Lacuni's with CC/int/AR. I have a cheap one I use for speed farming but it has no CC and low AR/int
Any thoughts on which to go after first would be appreciated. Or if there is something more critical I should be looking at.

Conclusion: It's probably better to buy 1 (2 max) big item than a bunch of little upgrades. You'll have less depreciation (so the item keeps it's value more) and feel better about that slot being "done" for the time being. Plus it saves you from having to do a million searches in the AH as you scramble to find bargains for every slot, which in turns saves your sanity :)

Thank you very much, this was quite helpful! I was coming to the same conclusion about Tal's.. found one that had 6% damage, 250 int and 5.0% CC.. I still would've lost about 5k dps.
So in regards to the weapon, maybe I've been going about it incorrectly. You think I can upgrade DPS by finding a weap that has OS, but no base CD? The 70% gem is pretty expensive (for me lol) and would only be a net gain of 1%. Even if I got the 100% CD gem, that still only offers +31% CD over what I have now, which is good obviously but would also break the bank and I didn't think would be game changing. Am I wrong in assuming I need OS AND CD? Will the black damage and minor CD increase make that much of a difference?
Sadly the added black damage doesn't outperform CD in the long run. I have a 6% tals ammy 8% zuni boots and even when I 6% SOJ this manaj was better then my higher base damage black weapon by a significant margin. It comes at a price though this dagger was not cheap, but I think in the long run it should be the weapon you go with.
That's what I thought. Sad face. Manajuma's with a socket and 900+ dps are too rich for me at this point. Still, thanks :)
100% agree with Jimbob & Purg I saved like Scrooge on steroids to get my knife.
Laid down 9 digits for it but by far the best route to take - aim for the best upgrade for that slot and devote time to get that one item then move to the next one.
Of course look out for other upgrades and you might snag a bargain, my ammy was only 8mil.
I took the other way. Was rolling with Manaj with 99% base crit & socket and I replace it with a higher dps Butcher Sickle with lower base crit. I did notice any difference in crit amount from both weapons.
The beauty is, I get to pull in runners and stun them with my Sickle which is awesome because I get both defense (stun) and offense (pull in for bears rush) from 1 weapon!
