So about rare hand crossbows...

Demon Hunter
Specifically, what kind of rolls are worth selling/keeping? I can't help but notice that you never see one with DPS that can compete with a Calamity. A quick search on the AH shows that they get quite expensive despite the lower DPS, so what stats should you be looking for?

neither can we, which is why Dual wielding has been dead for a long time
the ruby killed it for good

you will never find a 1200 dps

25x-3xx damage, 50% ed, with 11% ias, socket, 100% chd, and 200 dex. which would allow you to obtain competative DPS (at the cost of utility + eHP to a DML) which is what you are hoping for.

the cost of such vs the time it took is also not worth it either.

you'd rather invest in a 1700 dps calamity (<-rubied) and a DML quiver as a great eHP and DPS stat-stick

perhaps with a new itemization generation in 08 or 09 for rares as the devs talked about will change things? I doubt it; still wont change the fact that a ruby is weapon based damage, not character damage
i always look for the following stats for a rare 1H:

open socket
crit damage
max discipline +10
dex
vit
800+ DPS
I really can't imagine having a rare 1-handed crossbow that costs x amount actually being worth more than a legendary 1-hander that costs the same x amount.

you will never find a 1200 dps


This is not true... there is a 1239 dps with 10% ias 53%CD and 2.2% lifesteal with an Open Socket on the auction house right now... for a measly 1.5b

You forgot the rest of his thought:
