I dropped 80K sheet DPS to take Lord Commander since I worked both Phalanx and now Bombardment with its Holy rune into my build. Bombardment with a 1H still seems lackluster.

I'd argue I just don't like (what I consider to be) stupid game design, when so much better is possible.

Is it known what calculations are behind sheet DPS? Googling around is inconclusive, but some posts suggest it's essentially white damage, which is asinine.

It can't be just white damage, because it's influenced by crit / crit dmg / atk speed and not by phisical modifier.

But then they wouldn't really be ARPGs. Why do you think they have seasons/ladders? Stashless fresh regrind for all!

It is pretty much the damage you'd do with a 100% weapon attack over a period of time. So it is pretty much irrelevant for 100% of all builds. Attack Speed, Crit and Crit Damage are calculated into it along with primary stat and weapon damage.

Looked up a legendary earlier and came across this, might be worth sharing. The list in the source has item tooltips on hover, if curious.

Source.

21) I've heard there are certain cache-specific legendaries, such as the Ring of Royal Grandeur?
Yes: certain legendaries can only drop from bounty caches; the difficulty level doesn't matter, but they only drop from caches from two acts each (act 4 and one other act). Those are all currently known bounty cache legendaries:


Avarice Band - Act 3 and Act 4
Boots of Disregard - Act 3 and Act 4
Burst of Wrath - Act 3 and Act 4
Cloak of Deception - Act 2 and Act 4
Coven's Criterion - Act 2 and Act 4
Death's Bargain - Act 4 and Act 5
Envious Blade - Act 3 and Act 4
Gloves of Worship - Act 2 and Act 4
Golden Gorget of Leoric - Act 1 and Act 4
Helltrapper - Act 4 and Act 5
Ilusory Boots - Act 2 and Act 4
Insatiable Belt - Act 3 and Act 4
Mad Monarch's Scepter - Act 1 and Act 4
Overwhelming Desire - Act 3 and Act 4
Pandemonium Loop - Act 4 and Act 5
Pauldrons of the Skeleton King - Act 1 and Act 4
Pride's Fall - Act 3 and Act 4
Ring of Royal Grandeur - Act 1 and Act 4
Salvation - Act 4 and Act 5
Sanguinary Vambraces - Act 1 and Act 4
Soulsmasher - Act 4 and Act 5

This looks like a compilation based off this blue post, which is a bit easier to read:

Ah nice catch! Yes, that seems more organized.

It's a little strange to me that there's so much data in this game you can't get unless you read the right websites, and so much data that you can't get at all.

Wish they would just provide combat log capabilities.

It's like engine covers on new cars. :(
