Sentry attack speed breakpoints

Demon Hunter
Hi,
Because English is not my first language, I will try to give you the conclusion in as few words as possible.

The tick rate of the sentry is not continuous. When APS is 1, the tick rate is 54. And here is the attack speed breakpoints for the sentry

Sentry Tick Rate.............APS
-------------------------------------------------------------
54.................................0.98182~1.10204
48.................................1.10205~1.25581
42.................................1.25582~1.45945
36.................................1.45946~1.74193
30.................................1.74194~2.16
24.................................2.16001~2.84210
18.................................2.84211~4.15385
12.................................4.15386~
--------------------------------------------------------------

As for Tasker and Theo, here is the calculation:

Sentry_APS= DH_APS x (1+TaT_Bonus/100)

Thus, it is possible to attain a tick rate of 12 with a 50% bonus TaT:

Hand crossbow with 7% IAS: 1.6*1.07= 1.712

Bombadier's Rucksack: 20%
Paragon points: 10%
Cain's set: 10%
Glove: 7%
SOJ: 7%
RoRG: 7%
Witching Hour: 6%
-------------------------------------------------------
IAS from gear: 67%

APS= 1.712 x 1.67 x 1.5 = 4.28856.

By the way, the attack speed and DPH of the sentry depends on main-hand weapon.

Good information, thanks for breaking it out. So basically with T&T you want the 2.85 threshold. So am I calculating this correctly?

Attack Speed: 2.19
With T&T (46%): 3.19

This would mean anyone who uses 2 crossbows will usually hit the 18 tick mark with T&T equipped.
Hey guys, sorry for asking this, but what is "tick rate" ? is there a cap on attack speed for sentries or something aswell?
thread about BPs n° ?

while useful this is just the 104892394 repost of these BPs... come on guys, u act like this is totally new info never seen anywhere else
Have to agree with Fenice here...

It might be best if we all look at Oscar's sticky and lovely colourful graphic chart before making any more tick/frame/ BP related threads.

First, thanks for this info.

So the 4.15386 cap is only attainable with near perfect gear?

The guide/information says:
Thus, it is possible to attain a tick rate of 12 with a 50% bonus TaT:

Hand crossbow with 7% IAS: 1.6*1.07= 1.712

Bombadier's Rucksack: 20%
Paragon points: 10%
Cain's set: 10%
Glove: 7%
SOJ: 7%
RoRG: 7%
Witching Hour: 6%
-------------------------------------------------------
IAS from gear: 67%

APS= 1.712 x 1.67 x 1.5 = 4.28856.

By the way, the attack speed and DPH of the sentry depends on main-hand weapon

However, you cant wear Cain's set with M6 right?
So that gives:
APS=1.712x1.57x1.5=4.03176

So you need some attackspeed from an ammy, from bracers instead (no Cain's) and maybe from a gem like Gogok, to get to ~4.15386 and basically also perfect rolls on almost everything else, otherwise you wont reach it?

So for those who cant reach 4.15386, it is better to go for 2.84211 with TnT?
How doable is 2.84211 without TnT?
Nice, Tenks for information!
u cant use cain's with mara and tnt...
