Shadow - Should I go for 18,215 or 14,873

Postby Shadea » 04 Nov 2013, 13:43

Hello h2p, i'm having some issues deciding what is better for my SP, the things i'm talking about is if 18215 haste cap is actually better than getting the 4set and the lower haste cap 14873?
I actually can achieve that by doing 2 things:
Ditching 4set bonus and getting Robes of the Tendered Heart(hc2/2 upgraded)
OR going all 320 haste gems all over the place.
I would really apreciate it if you could fill me up about this issue i am having, btw here is my sp's armory link :)

This is still a pretty hotly debated subject, and the official stance around here is that the difference is so small that it doesn't matter, so do whatever you want.

Because of that, if you're sacrificing a lot of int socket bonuses to get to the 18,215 haste breakpoint, it's probably going to end up as an overall loss of dps. The same thing goes for tier bonuses - unless it's also an ilvl upgrade, which your case doesn't seem to be, then it's probably not going to be good to ditch tier bonuses just to get more haste.

Just for reference, 18215 only applies to people who can comfortably get there. Doing things like using a not-so-good offset item, breaking 4pc, using previous tier items like breath of the hydra and gemming straight haste is not "comfortably" getting there. Just aim for 14873 until you have the right pieces that you don't have to do that and plan your upgrade path accordingly.

To determine a decent upgrade path you have to look at where upgrades put you in AMR.
