Diablo 3 Stat Comparisons

With the new patch, the classic 'Life', 'Damage' and 'Proection' have been replaced with a 'Damage', 'Toughness' and 'Healing' comparison.

While 'Damage' is fairly straightforward, how are the other comparisons calculated?

I'm looking for an answer that more precisely defines the terms of these calculations - preferably with an example –  Bob2Chiv Feb 27 at 18:05

1 Answer 1

The new toughness and healing listed in your character stats are equivalent to your EHP and your regen/second (when totaling all sources including regen, loh * proc * attack speed, life steal, etc).

The % changes is now purely based on how much of a boost or loss when compared to your current gear.

The example you give shows a 13.3% overall EHP gain, a 5.6% gain in life per second.

Note I've noticed the healing attribute fluctuates a lot if you have life steal on your weapon as it doesn't count until you are actually dealing damage to something so I'd take that with a grain of salt.

As for the toughness/EHP calculation, I'd also be careful as it considers dodge as part of EHP and there are many things that can't be dodged.

Does the Toughness number account for the Monk's One With Everything passive? –  StrixVaria Feb 27 at 18:53
    
@StrixVaria yes it does –  z ' Feb 27 at 20:35
    
What does EHP stand for? Enhance Health points? –  deutschZuid Feb 27 at 21:35

@deutschZuid effective health pool. Basically it means that how much raw damage you can take before you die. For example, if you have 10000 health and enough armor/resistance reduction to reduce damage by 50%, your EHP is 20000. –  z ' Feb 27 at 21:38

The toughness number on the character sheet takes into account One With Everything, but the comparison does not –  Bob2Chiv Mar 28 at 15:59
