so, im about to build myself a WD but im unsure which way to go as far as weapon/gear choices.
if i go with manajuma knife, which offhand?
should i go skorn?
ive seen a lot of different set ups, im just trying to spend my gold wisely and im trying to get the most effective setup. ill probably only farm mp3-4 at most for xp and what not.
i'm gonna give you a very bad answer...all the items you have listed, i have one...or at least one of them but i'll give you my fav gear setup for casual farming:
For casual farming, i like using ToTD. It is guranteed 8% CC, +mana and +mana regen. The only downside is generally, the ToTD doesn't roll as high in the avg dmg so dps is generally lower. Also ToTD only goes as high as 8.5%CC, but that pickup radius is glorious. I also have 2 uhkapian's that I often swap out depending on build
For weap, i generally use a manajuma knife. If you're gonna get one, go for perfect 3% LS. THis is needed against reflect. I'm not sure what the reflect nerf to 1.0.7 will bring, but you want to max this stat if you can. ALso, you'll notice that higher CD knives (i.e., 75+CD) start to cost a premium and as you start to approach 1k dps, the knives start to get costly
I've also played around with a cheapo LS Skorn. The additional LS on the skorn does indeed make current farming at higher mp easier because you don't have to worry so much about reflect, but you lose a lot of mana and mana regen from your offhand.
As far as armor goes, i'd start picking up 4 piece Zuni set. Most people go with a zuni helm, chest, boots and ring. You want the additional mana regen bonus
as far as additional ring goes, a SOJ is probably a safe bet, but any rare with CC and CD is good. Other players in PvP are also considered "Elites" so they will take 30% more dmg too which is nice
