I've got a little question - I've used Spectral Blades (Healing Blades in PVE, Thrown Blades in PVP) as my standard spell for a long time now as it used to do a decent amount of damage (165% weapon damage) and I enjoyed going into CC.
Anyways, I've played around with my build a bit since the new patch (did they nerf force weapon by the way? Could get up to 400 k DPS but not anymore... oh well :) ) and tried Shock Pulse with the Fire affix. It does 195% weapon damage, not that much more on paper.
It's a bit of a bastard sometimes (only if you fight a single enemy) but the damage output is insane! With Spectral Blades I usually do around 200k damage when I crit but with those I get up to 700k. And without forcing Force Weapon as well, with that i should get even higher!
Could someone who knows a bit more explain to me how 30% weapon damage makes such a HUGE difference? It's even better than arcane orbs (which uses a lot of resources and does 200% weapon damage, basically a pretty bad choice IMO).
Thank you for any reply, I really appreciate it!
PS: Does anyone else always find Lamentations and Ageless Mights all the time? I've found around 60 of those (every second leg is one of those two) and it sucks! ;P
