3 Gear (Weapon/Armor/Flask):

Weapons:Aim for 1.6+ attacks per second and high physical damage.
This will make your life leech more efficient, since you will do more hits in the same amount of time. This will result in more life per second.
Keep in mind, that life leech is capped to 20% of your maximum hit points per second.

High end Weapons:
– Corsair Blade, 1.65 APS (fastest accuracy sword in game)
– Eternal Sword, 1.6 APS

Sword
– High Physical Damage
– High Attack Speed
Adds:
– Strength
– Life leech
– Life Gain on Hit
– Attack Speed
– Life
– Resistances

Armor:

Aim for high evasion armors, since it will get multiplied with your agility.

An example:
100 Agility on your character screen.
Item got 100 evasion rating.

5 Agility -> 1% more evasion rating.
100/5 -> 20% more evasion rating from items.
100% + 20% -> Factor 1,2 for evasion rating.
100 evasion rating * 1,2 -> 120 evasion.

Due to Iron Reflexes, evasion is converted to armor.
= 120 armor instead of 100.

This is why you should always pick items with pure evasion rating.
