Unfortunately its harder to find Attack Damage Converted to Health, at least in normal. Think i just have 2 bows with that.

Kinda hard, yes. There is one artifact, Soul Shiver, that drops in Normal Act 2 that is a good early source for ADCtH. Other notable sources will be from green items with the ... of Feasting suffix, but those have quite low numbers (5-8%), and you need both a weapon and an amulet with it to get decent numbers (13-20%).
There are some blue items that can have it, but those are even rarer than the green items. Also, unless you have a LOT of damage in Normal, it really is not worth getting. I don't have a great rule of thumb, but maybe if your DPS multiplied by your ATCtH rate is less than 10% of your Hitpoints, it is not worth it. (With 4000 HP, and 10% ADCtH, you need about 400 DPS). I've really only used it with Vitality damage (Diviner), and hated it with most of my Physical-damage toons. Look to increase your damage or defences in Normal, then work on attack damage conversion in Epic, as some Legendaries will come along with it that are OK.

I dont have that formula. Im not very worried with health now. My first char (N3A) aint destroying but its going ok, but the others with the sharing gear are killing machines because i can have them equipped almost fully with greens and blues in the end of Greece.
The game gets really hard at any point? I mean, drinking many many potions and dying a lot? (not farming, just sharing gear between 5 chars).

Sharing gear between characters is a very easy way to make the game a walk in the park. Act 4 on any difficulty can be quite tough sometimes for all characters(except heavily twinked ones really)...
Complete the game a couple of times all the way through with different character types, and if you still find it to easy pick up something like the Underlord mod(very challenging, but without being over the top and frustrating) or xmax... Act 4 in the underlord one is just pure madness. I play it on co-op and it's the most fun I've ever had with the game since my first(decent) character.

Im thinking to get to the end with the 5 chars i started (one of each kind), and if i dont get bored of the game i might play with some mod. Later i might make a post asking for advise about the main mods (cant find descriptions about each one).

Well, I've been absent for a bit--recent back surgery has prevented me from doing any activity that requires me to sit for more than 20-30 minutes at a time, so I haven't been playing TQIT for awhile. However, I do pop into these forums every night for a few minutes and it's good to see the regular ol' gang (Fozzie, Irma, Medea, essjayehm, ASYLUM, Violos, Poinas, Deathshadow, Laurrrr, Darklightr, LMunhoz, etc.) still active and posting. Hopefully I'll be able to resume playing in a few weeks. Until then, keep up the good work, old-timers!

Sorry to hear the news, defboy99, and hope you're back to being 100% soon. I'll be disappearing for a little while soon too, nothing drastic, just won't be able to access my computer so no gaming for a bit. But when I get back I'll be raring to play again and get back to chatting with everyone here.

Ouch, that sounds uncomfortable, defboy99. Hope it turned out OK and that the long-term prognosis is good. Will communicate via other channels shortly.

Thanks for the kind words, Medea & Irma. Fortunately, it wasn't a really "serious" surgery, just a microdiscectomy, and I'm in the process of recuperating. It will take some time (possibly up to 4 months) and some changes in the way I do some basic day-to-day things, but hopefully the problem will be taken care of and I can get back to being the defboy99 of old (for better or worse...heh heh).
@ Medea -- I hope your time away from here isn't too long--you're one of the folks here who makes this forum such a pleasant place to be, so I'll look forward to seeing you here when you get back.
@ Irma -- Looking forward to hearing from you and telling you all about it!

Did my first greater artifact, weeeeeeeeeee
Was so proud to give my harbinger a Book of Dreams (+1 for Dream Mastery).
Untilllllll i sew that my DPS drop from 300 to 200!!!!
Man i knew it woulda drop a bit my damage, because Shroud of Eternal Night (used that artifact to build Book of dreams) give lots of damage, but -33% damage is a lot! Shouldnt a greater artifact be much better than a lesser!?
Shroud of Eternal Night:
21 Poison Damage Over 3 Seconds
40 Energy Leech Over 2 Seconds
10 Piercing Damage
20% Vitality Damage Resistance
25% Stun Resistance
+10% Attack Speed
Book of Dreams:
+10% Lightning Damage I dont use, need 9 more points to get Temporal rift
+10% Electrical Burn Damage What is the difference between lighting damage an electic burn damage!?
+20% Sleep Damage Dont use
10% Damage Resistance This looks sweet
100% Sleep Resistance Never saw a sleep attack
50% Stun Resistance Very rare t see monster doing it
+1 to All Skills in Dream Mastery
In the end the good things i have from this artifact are: 10% Damage Resistance and +1 to All Skills in Dream Mastery, the rest seems kinda useless!
Well, i know its kinda stupid to be complaining, because i can read what are the attributes of an artifact before building it, but i just wanted a greater
Anyway the new one for sure (!?) its better (now) even loosing 100DPS, but my noobism dont let me figure it out. Its hard for me to measure the importance of +1 skills compared to DPS (any rule you guys use? how many DPS are you willing to loose to have a +1?). Also found a +1 Warfare weapon (Warriors iron bludgeon), but my Grim bronze war axe of devastation gives me more 40 DPS and i dont know what to do!
Im in N3A, level 25 or 26.*
