Amulet Question

Demon Hunter
All things being equal and in current setup. Which would be stronger in general:

hellfire: dex/cc/cd with Archery Passive
maras: cold/cc/cd

Basically just trying to simply the question about whether elemental damage is stronger or dex+archery while losing the elemental bonus.
Archery is only 8% damage (with a bow), but your Mara's cold is 17%. The cold would be added on top of your bracers and soj, but it's still probably more damage than the dex + passive, even if only a little. Also the poison immunity can be very handy. Sorry I can't be more precise, that's just my best guess.
Just mouse over your elemental damage in the inventory screen, see which number is higher.
% Elemental > Dexterity. The HFA pulls away regardless because it provides an additional (valued) passive which nets an 8% dps gain based on your weapon.

17% elemental damage is not 17% dmg.
