is no one talking about vampire bats? It's the one thing I am fired up for, considering I don't use an LS main weapon.
Right now I intend to sit at 300k dps and stack a very good amount of EHP and run vampire bats over bears with no other changes to my build (grasp of the dead over vengeful spirit, however). I figure most mobs I don't need to kite so that initial cost won't be much of an issue while the channeling will be nice.
I've thought about that myself although it will accompany my Manajuma's carving knife (930, OS, 84%, 3%). I'm not sure how much I'll be able to tank but I don't want to be getting killed a lot, so running with 5.5% LS rather than 3 should be pretty valuable for me.
At your extreme DPS though, I'd be worried about killing myself with that much leach against Reflect. At 5 charges of Gruesome Feast you must be monstrous.
guess imma find out soon!
EDIT: I think I might be using the new improved Blood Ritual passive instead, actually. For solo play
