I FOUND. Yes...FOUND an upgrade for my monk last night. Can't remember the last time that happened.
Even with no crit dmg on the thing it is a 2,200+ dps bump. The attacks/second is only -0.1 slower than the dagger I was using but the LoH is almost double so nice bump there too. Not to mention the extra HP from the Vitality.
edit: also, funny weapon name is funny
i cant believe how much a difference some decent gear makes while leveling a new character. bought a few minor things for cheap along the way and i took my new barb from 25-48 through the weekend, only spending a couple hours each day. at 46 i equipped a 850dps/ias/800+loh sword and screamed through act3 and act4. hell should also be a breeze
soon as i think of a name i'll be starting a WD. it's kinda fun leveling a new character if you can find some good gear for cheap in the AH along the way. dont think i spent more than 10k total on my barbs leveling stuff (found the sword, so that doesnt count)
also found it funny that any rare you find while leveling with a decent +main stat you can probably sell in the AH for a quick 1k gold. not that it's a way to make a profit, but it's nice to know you're helping someone else out with an item that is otherwise useless.
I shamelessly copied PBN's DH spec... and I have come to the hilarious conclusion that Vault: Trail of Cinders is Retard Strength overpowered. And fun as hell. I've gotten bitten by it a few times, but there is nothing like jumping head-first into a pack of 'lites and watching their health bars drop in a matter of seconds.
So... thanks again, PBN!
Having 16xK sheet dps (w/out sharpshooter also helps).. I'm just glad that I don't rely on vault: trail of cinders as my main dps source b/c its going to get nerfed hard..
so, i just picked up a 1000dps+ sever, for 1mil.. 170vit and the usual stats.. im using it in my offhand with my sun keeper.. running act 3, let me just say.. wtf... i am getting crits against demons into the millions.. more than making up for not using a shield.. this thing is nuts.. i may be misreading some of the numbers, but i swear i saw a 9 million hit crit... sitting at 40k dps and 60k HP..
edit,, just read about the wep.. the big, multi-million hits im getting is the "slain enemies rest in pieces" proc, killing blows are huge damage.. if it had a life leach on it, like 3% converted to health, i could get full heals off this thing.. and with ignore pain up (20% damage done converted to life) i could get heals off of it
