so many replies, thx a lot for the interes! I will try to reply to all:
for ppl that ask why axe or swords, i will use sirpandalot explanation:
The axe I want is either yours or proph's which is on sale on jsp atm I believe :DI like the 1.3aps because I can still hit 2.01 bp with 6 pieces of 9 ias gear OR even drop down to 1.501aps with 2 pieces of ias gear and maintaining 24% ms. So for me, it's like the Jack of All Trades. So does that make the 1.3aps axe the best ? No, but it is what I think is best for my own gear.
exactly because of this! It has the best control between AS, Mana management and high crits!
@Mugel: this guide is not for new player, did u read the title? The reason for inna and the EHP is explained a lot. Of course some people will not agree, thats why there are videos to proof that this set up works!
@gotcha: well there are different approaches. With shiled and 1H and 100K DPS you can tank everything ... but is it better to fight elties for 1 min? Imagine how many CC effects you will slallow? The method is concentrated on DPS and skills are designed for you to live in the spirit world - being invulnerable and inflict maximum dmg in short time to kill fast, reset CDs! For this you dont need EHP, 450K is the maximum, otherwise you start sacrificing DPS!
@Luffy: since you like numbers, PLease advise what EHP you need in order to survive 5 mln crit? Skorn is not a consistent solution to solve RD problem and will never reach the DPS of 1H, as explained in the first post. I can record a video to prove my point, because you need to see how much you sacrifice in order to tank RD - 1 affix that can happen that you dont meet in a whole run! In addition, with high enough DPS you can kill them during SW time+FA! Also SV is better solution then going 2H nd gimping your DPS!
@Kentlau: i dont agree, SW is almost never on CD! 350K EHP is enough to approach any group. Without inna u have same survivability, because you will need to take more DMG, because it will take longer to approach the elites and more time to kill them. MC solves the problem with ranged mobs ... almost ;)
@skywalker: exactly the reason i post it ;) Having different information and different approaches allow people to make better decisions. U have a lot of info for huge EHP and Skorn builds and very few about the 1H + high DPS
@Luffy second post :): i will record a video showing how the mitigation - DPS ratio is affected till u start healing on the RD and people can decide on their own, if its worth to go this way! IMO its A NONO! Before i posted i went against siege with weak skorn and pvp gear and you know what? I dont outheal ... i dont die, but i dont outheal without FA, so i imagine if i stand on arcances/plague vs RD skorn will not help. Killing fast is the best EHP and method to overcome RD!
@Paul: many thanks for the positive feedback! Again this guide is for advanced users and going CoB in act4 is not very efficient ... so much interrupting makes the skill much worse choice compared to ZB. I want to show maximum efficiency and not something average! Skorn is really very easy to complete the game, but here we talk about killing MP10 fast! Skorn is 20% behind good 1H+mojo, not only on sheet, but also for the hidden bonuses, which are explained! And yes its easier, but we are advanced WDs we need the fastest way to kill, not the easiest :)
@IMDKK: u have nice WD! Try to test the gearing setup from the OP, it will boost you a lot :)
@caiqian: its not personal preferenec! U need to move fast to farm fast. Inna gives you a lot of DPS which u need to kill fast! Your set up is not good! Just try the gearing with tals+inna and i bet you will never look back! U think that you kill fast, but actually u can kill much faster!
i would like to thx also to the noobs, that are posting (u know who u are) and i am sure you are learnign a lot!
I will correct any statement that is not true or its a personal preference and not a hard fact! Just post which one it is and i will immediately correct it!
