Ok, so I've been playing a modified Drunk build to obtain a druid past life(10dru/6mnk/4fgt). I would have gone with the standard 9mnk/9dr/2fgt, but it turns out that's only going to get me a monk past life.
Anyway, I'm sitting at level 16 right now, and I'm finding myself really lacking in the weapon department. I've been using +3 handwraps with shocking II and ribcracker III for a few levels. I can't seem to find anything better. A guildy recommended that I use vampiric stonedust wraps, which I have in the bank. But I'm looking at them and I just don't see the appeal. Sure, maybe if I was looking for more survivability, they'd be great, but I'm honestly not having any problems staying alive. What I need is to kill things faster.
I'm pretty happy with the damage output that I've got right now. Things die pretty fast, even on elite runs. But I'm using level 12 handwraps, and I'm really wondering if there's anything better for my level. I've got some stuff in the bank waiting for me at level 20, so that's not a problem. It's just that right now there seems to be a real derth of upper-mid-level handwraps. The AH is pretty barren, sporting lots of useless stuff that's even worse than what I have.
Am I missing some important mid-level drop? Or am I just stuck slugging out these last few levels with outlevelled gear and hoping for a good random gen drop out of a quest/chest?
