Diablo® III

Grin Reaper

You lose stats but get quite a bit of utility on it. Mimics will cast spells from you cast bar, tho they can't cast every spell. They get the effect of slow from grasp and from SH (info from an old thread on general forums but from what I have seen still the same). If they can cast all slows I imagine it maybe useful.

Just wondering if any1 used it and if it was useful.

Oh well. Would have been gr8 if it did. Extra cc still nice tho.

Hmm, strange, I thought it was a remake of wizard's Mirror Image skill.

Btw are there any with CC and socket ? They should exist, in theory, as it gets 2 random properties, but I haven't seen any in several days ..

Didn't see any with those stats when i searched em on eu today but wasn't looking for one with crit so i might have missed it.

Grin Reaper with Manitu = x3 mantiu, Fun times.

CORRECTION, the only spell that has any effect is grasp of the dead and that is it's snare only, no damage. x3 manitu looks cool but only your own manitu does any damage.

Bascially you give up a ton of stats for a very cool but mostly usless spechial effect.

the grin reaper is a lower level legendary helm that procs summoned mimics that can cast your spells..in reality the only spell they cast that actually does anything is grasp of the dead, and all it does is slow the enemies. basically its extra cc from your gear. its definitely a fun helm to play around with and it was never viable until PvP because its not lvl 60 even

It should also help with storm armor aswell. Wish we had something we could use to trigger it while stunned, so we could use it like wiz uses mirror image or that it broke cc when you reverted to normal.

some of u already know this...but ill mention it, the mimics from the helm will still linger even if u swap helms.

sure but the mimics only last 5 seconds, swapping helms every 5 sec is a pretty big pain in the !@# unless you are scripting.
