Hey guys. I've been working on my Wave of Light build. Thought i'd put a few things down here for advice for anyone making a build based only on Wave of Light.
Right now it seems like life on hit coupled with dual wielding is the way to go on spirit generation. It's enough to generate 75+ spirit before you die. And it happens in enough time to use your bell to deal damage and get your life back. I just couldn't get Life Steal to stay consistent. Perhaps it is better with higher DPS.
But that's the thing. Wave of Light gives us the chance to focus less on paper DPS. I got comfortable with mp5 with 50K DPS. And this is pre 1.07 buff to Wave of Light.
Don't skimp on Spirit Regeneration. Attack Speed is great, and you'll need some. But if you already have over 2.0 attack speed, start thinking about using Spirit Regen instead of attack speed. Besides, you can only have Spirit Regen in a few select places. Attack Speed you can get in almost any slot. When thinking about spirit generation alone, attack speed can get you only a fraction of what 2.0 spirit regeneration per second does.
Try Life Per Spirit Spent once you have a good stream of bells/spirit generation going. Every bell is potentially ... up to like... an 18k heal. (I have a 8k heal, per bell). If you have Life Per Hit while you are generating spirit, it should get you to the next heal. Once you have this going, it feels quite nice. I'm using experimental (crap) equipment for mp3 - and I'm not dying.
Here's hoping that with the next patch and some gear improvements - that I can hit mp10!
Wish me luck! And I hope the video is informative!
