Blizzard/healing blades are very bad against Demonic Tremors... hidden knockback+fast affixes and no significant ranged damage on your part meaning they melee you, interrupt your blades thus your healing flow and kill you.
When you spot them, kite them: continue spamming blizzard on your usual way, keep aggro, don't waste time. When they're low, stop and finish the job.
I'd say ~20 yard pickup radius is comfortable. So I'd suggest dropping Inna's in favor of mitigation pants with pickup radius. Dropping a bit of attack speed is not too problematic, your setup is fast enough.
Also, with more DPS, Power Hungry will better maintain your AP flow, provided your blizzard kills fast enough that some mobs die around you. Try aiming the spell far ahead of your path. Maybe you could take sparkflint instead of arcanot, your passive regen is already nice !
I'm curious about your choice of Electrify rune. Care to explain ? Isn't its proc based on spell coefficient ? iirc Stark Winter is 1% per tick and healing blades is not great either...
hey Krali, sorry for my late reply - have been away for awhile!
appreciate your feedback! i am hesitant changing out my inna pants because of the DPS it gives me with the IAS - if i change for rare pants, then I would need to use lacuni prowlers instead
i tried all the runes of spectral blades and sleet storm and agree that healing blades gives more flexibility esp against RD, but sleet storm kills elites SO fast. Its an annoying spell though because u need to be in close range, and if you click on a mob far away, the stupid wiz stops and casts for nothing...maybe a bug that can be fixed by Blizzard (the company)!
btw im doing this by swapping out my leoric for a SOJ, haha...went on a spending spree buying 3 SOJs (+2sec blizz, +12% blades, +7% ROF) and notice a slight drop in EXP but quicker elite kills now
as for electrify magic weapon, i use that becaues i feel healing blades and LS on weapon is enough and blood magic doesnt really add any value...i chose electrify because i heard how good it was with mobs and CM/WW without really understanding how it works :P its strange though, it seems to proc with blizzard...i drop a blizzard on packs and sometimes i see the electricity animation.
Krali - do you pick up rares? or only legendaries? I am running Alkaiser run but adding in Rakkis Crossing, and still only getting 70M/hr, not 80M/hr...any ideas why?
Edit: Compared SOJ ROF with sleetstrom vs SOJ Blades with Healing blades in the DPS calc for my gear....sleetstorm does 700k DPS and returns 3500 life per second from LS, healing blades does 410k DPS and returns 2000 life per second!
