So what did you expect?
"WOW Dex is awsome put all your point in it, 5,400,10,10 is the way to go"


If you never get agro never want to solo and only do boss runs then go all STR and be a glass cannon.
If you want to live you need health. If you have awsome gear then you can reduce. If you never want to solo a 4 star or a 3 star then reduce. I showed you how DEX and STR work together and how a high DEX build should not exceed STR by more then double or you are wasting points. Dex is DPS and Survival combined.

STR means more damage per second.
DEX means a higher percent of hits and more dodges so you have more seconds in the fight.
If you stay in the range of 2 STR to 1 DEX and 1 STR to 2 DEX you will be fine. That range the trade offs are flat. You have 265 points in dex and str so your ratio is fine.
For DEX, the more dodges far outweighs the more hits so if you never get agro then STR is better for DPS.
But your lack of health means skill hits are death. Your health is so low connach cold seers can probably wipe you out with a single ice shards. IF you want to solo, your health needs to be 2 to 3 times your level.

When I was your level I had 5 STR 200 DEX 10 foc and 90 health with a heroic amulet of rejuv and only gear that dropped. put everything in poison reflex and quick. It worked well but I should have moved some dex to str.


Okay, ill work on that! Ty!

My fav part was: Your health is so low connach cold seers can probably wipe you out with a single ice shards. :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:
They cant, their shard are pathetic. :D I kick their butts instead. :D

On a more serious note, point taken. I actually have had many ppl tell me I need more health. :oops:

I am currently running a noob rogue for the purpose of testing game mechanics at low levels as I played those leeks pre update. I have been running him with an even dex-str and a bit heavier on the vit it's working well but as I have reached the str plateau with my current gear I will be putting more into dex as I level

Beginning by far, it isn't an endless grind and there are things to do/discover

My level 117 Mage is the most fun of all my alts which include

150 rogue
117 Mage
89 ranger
35-50 Druid x3 (I hate this class but keep starting one in hopes that it will be fun)

Oh, working is an understatement! :lol: I can kill everything that is my level (except 4 stars ofc), and almost kill (or literally kill :shock: ) 3 stars that are 4+ levels higher than me! :D
