I have a couple pieces from my wizard on my WD, as well as 200mil or so in new items. I'm sitting at 171k DPS, ~40-45k life, and 800 or so Res All depending on a couple gear choices.
I'm already enjoying the bears build so far, and once Soul Harvest and Gruesome Feast are in full gear the DPS output is excellent.
Still, I'd love to push toward 200k DPS and maybe more survivability.
I hope you guys can help me out.
First, the restrictions I have:
- I don't want to drop my toad. I love Gruesome Feast and Grave Injustice and every other place I look to add pickup radius, the rarity of that roll in combo with everything else makes prices skyrocket, with no direct benefit to ehp or edps.
- I have been able to run inna's pants with no real issue, plus the IAS from my witching hour, but swapping in a 3rd IAS piece introduces some mana hiccups.
- I have looked for slower 1H's that still have CDmg, LS, and socket, but we're talking 500mil to 2bil just to match or slightly surpass what I'm getting with the carving knife.
- I've tried a high DPS life steal skorn. It's only a small improvement in terms of apparent life generation and dps, and it probably works out to much less effective DPS as I can't maintain any pickup radius with it.
Now, with those things in mind, what changes do you veterans see as my most direct route to more dps and/or ehp.
Lastly, as a separate, general question, should I be dropping res all if necessary to get more raw VIT? On my wizard I'd take res all and armor over VIT any day, but they may not be the best idea for the WD.
Thoughts? And thanks in advance!!
