With the amount of resource reduction in the game, we will be the new CM wizards like exploding blast (without the freezing). I currently have this on my gear :

- 10% (points)
- 8% (gloves)
- 9% (weapon)
- 8% (amulet)
- 7% (ring)
- 25% (Hexing pants of Mr. nYan).

Not sure if the pants are additive or multiplicative though.

A nice build, although I saw you run out of steam a couple times when your discipline ran dry. The thing I find most interesting is that, with a little tweaking, this build does not require a bow, which could open up some interesting sword and board possibilities in the future. For class with such a small choice of weapons, it'd be welcome.

Sword and Board just became MUCH more viable now because of the smart drops.

Also, with the "nerf" on Archery, you're somewhat given more flexibility when choosing your weapon. Unlike before, if you forego Archery and Ranged Weapons, you'll lose CHD, ChC or +% Damage. Now, the bonuses are somewhat minimal but still considered as a boost.

I myself have a build specifically for Solanium or the Freeze-Kill weapon. The Neph Glory Weapon + Blind Helm is somewhat nice too.

The combinations are endless and DHs having somehow the most number of sustained DPS, meaning you're dealing damage with other skills while using other skills, really brings out the possibilities and synergies of those ON HIT or even WHEN ATTACKING Leg procs to shine.

Btw, some Legendaries proc even on skills that doesn't have Proc Coeff. Ess of Jordan's Vortex effect for example can be proc'ed by Caltrops-Jagged Spikes.

Are there any good shields for DHs to use? So far the good ones I've seen are Crusader only.

My FoK build is much stronger than yours and you dont need full Nats for it. I have only 96k dmg lvl 60. You have 270k dmg and your kill speed is so slow. Yes you are playing on Master but still you got nearly 3x more dmg than me.

You can use FoK with other skills together.

I haven't seen any Lidless Wall or the likes of them Legendary Shields so I can't be so sure ;)

Yan pants increase resource regeneration, not reduce costs.
