Taking a quick peak at my fire barb:
I am currently doing about 12 min clears of T4 rifts with this build:
I think my gloves are clearly my weakest piece of gear. I have a thought but would like to get some further opinion before tossing away mats testing:
- Replace gloves w/ Asheara's (havent found better and thousands of shards w/ no magefists)
- Replace Shoulders w/ Aughild's
- Replace Cindercoat w/ Aughild's
The last one is the biggie. I can't replace my helm or bracers because that's where all my mitigation and fury solutions come from. So the big question is whether or not 3 piece Ashearas + 3 piece Aughilds better than 3 piece Ashearas + cindercoat?
Assuming a good rolls all around here's the difference:
25% fire resource reduction
19% fire damage
7% melee reduction
7% ranged reduction
15% elite reduction
15% elite damage
100 AR (aughilds chest roll)
Let's say the 19% fire and 15% elite damage a wash. Basically we're talking about trading the 25% resource cost for a lot of mitigation. The only thing that's stopping me is the constant worry of fury issues without having one of the 3 end game sets. I have terrible set luck and am not close on any of them (I have 2 Raekor's...0 IK and 0 MoTA). Right now I have zero fury issues but taking away the 25% could cause some.
It's not like I can just make these changes overnight, it will require some work, but to me...on paper at least...it seems worth the effort of testing out. Hard to imagine replacing a well rolled cindercoat on a fire barb but that's why we are here asking...
What are your thoughts?
