i rerolled a near perfect calamity from vanilla and this is what i got above after getting a near perfect dmg reroll.
i don't think it's bis however. i recently switched out of it after finding a level 70 leg that lets me use frost arrows as my main hatred generator. it really breaks the game when you pair that with frost burns which gives you 50% chance to freeze. :-)
Got to love your Calamity. It just does not make sense a lvl70 2h is so much weaker than an enchanted lvl60 calamity aside from its dex and bonus element. Minus 9,1% damage. That max weapon dmg of 10% is an insult. Manticore has 50% as a lvl 60 weapon and crit dmg. ???
Even if the tool tip says -10% dps, the new one wins by a huge margin because of the MfD bonus. It's 20% on all mobs that you hit all the time, not the really weak occasional proc that you get from the old one.
If you're using mortal enemy, you can even afford to take a larger hit on paper DPS because your effective DPS will actually increase because of your increased ability to spam hatred spenders.
For example, with a new calamity I can spam cluster arrows constantly if there's a large enough group (keep in mind that I have -10 to cluster arrow cost and -17% resources). The long and short of it is that the hatred return is incredibly strong, dare I say, possibly too strong.
In some initial tests, it looks to me that the new calamity + mortal enemy combo makes ball lightning tend to return more hatred than when using a Kridershot (for those of you who dont know, that's the bow that makes elemental arrow generate 3 hatred instead of cost 10).
