i knew this ^.^ but I didn't know this ↓↓↓
which makes a biggg difference
my other concern and this just my stubbornness coming into play, is that I don't have any defensive skills or passives slotted, so I'd be taking a damage hit in some way for PF to be up consistently i think, I'm getting fairly proficient at stepping so it might be enough to deal with things. I would also lose the phys bonus on my andy's and my build doesn't really cost a lot of resources either, I am in the CA build thread though >.< Either way I really need to get my hands on one and try it out.
thanks for the pointers everyone (>^.^)>
Feel free to add me Soup, i always have time to spare, would be well spent helping people farm!
Also, thanks to all who contributed to the thread, I should have all contributions in and credited.

I have questions about re-rolling and when you take %to fire or % to cluster over another stat.
For example I have the following gloves
16% Fire Damage
Attack Speed 6%
Crit Chance 10% <-- This was my re-roll
However I also have the following yellow gloves
Attack SPeed 6%
Critical Hit Damage 48%
Crit Chance 9.5%
My yellow gloves give me close to 60k more DPS with my other stats. Is 60k dps worth the 16% fire damage?
Then I have a SOJ
19% lightning Damage
28 Against Elites
Do I reroll the lightning to try to get fire or is it trash cause it has no other stats?
Another example is my Helm, what do i reroll on it? Reroll cluster arrow or reroll the area damage?
17 Area Damage
12% Cluster Arrow
If I rerolled the area damage into a socket I could put a diamond into it for resource reduction.
is 97 all resist or 440 vit better to reroll to crit? I need a damn 1 all resist = X vit guide or something.

Calamity is nice in a full group, but in all other situations I'd take my 2-pierce Buriza and Emimei's Duffle (Bolas explode instantly) over any of the weapons mentioned in this thread.
Also, don't forget about Harrington Waistguard. It's easily the best belt in the game.
What is your sheet DPS with Magefists and how much +fire skill damage do you already have on your other gear?
I think it's worth rerolling the SOJ to fire unless you plan to pick up a lightning spec. It's not easy to farm for SOJs (rings cost 10 shards to gamble).
On your helm--note that diamonds give cooldown reduction not resource reduction. The socket is still nice for an amethyst, or you could shoot for a high vit roll.
Noted and credited Vorph, added a PS note to gear section:"Use whatever weapon you like, the ones listed below are my favorites."
Glove situation: I would personally use Magefist if you have decent CC and CHD. I also have a very similar rolled Magefist.
CHD% or +FIRE%: Having good CC%, CHD% and FIRE% all affect eachother.
I am not too sure about a straight comparison between CHD% and +FIRE%.
I would use the CHD% roll over +FIRE% if I had +50%FIRE.
I would +FIRE% if I had good CC% and CHD% (+50%CC and +500%CHD).
CALLING MATH WIZARDS.
^Recently added section.
I wouldn't reroll the SoJ, unless you just have extra imperials around or really really rich.
You might get a better SoJ drop. +FIRE would be my choice if CC% is over 50.
Helm, i would def shoot for a high vit roll.

Appreciate it! Drops come in time, my Pride's Fall took 2 days of bounty farming. Happy farming!
Great stuff, none of the gear yet but I just love CA.
One thing, and not about your build but your profile. Is it bugged? You have the ring but not the second set properties of blackthorn. Or does the ring not work on non class specific gear.
The Ring reduces the amount of set pieces down by 1, BUT you to have a minimum of 2 set pieces.
Example. You have a Nat's Sight(Helm) piece and a Ring equipped you will not get the 2 SET, however if you have a Nat's Sight and a Nat's Boots you will get the 3 SET.
@Blackedout Here's a very rough comparison I posted earlier
Point for point, 1% of average base damage dps (not sheet dps affected by attack speed) is worth more than 1% fire damage. So for example
I think its for the skill only. Confirmed skill only. (by blue post)

Ah, good to know, thanks!
But the Grenadier passive applies to CA? Or just to CB damage?
