HaHa so true. Please craft me some bracers with 6CC, 50ish+ RA and 300 int with 5+ PUR. I am going now into the 5k craft range and no dice getting the all important RA on them - its always a single haha - I await my godly roll. The 4 piller leg guys I just spam PB and move since they just hurt period lol.
Belive it or not imp the added def & RA, even 500 to 600 def is noticable when in MP10. Sometimes (most of the time) its better to loose a little sheet DPS then to skimp on those yet it just depends on where you are running yet it you are doing VOTA and all pB has it right on the numbers.
I will never get rid of lacuni's. Movement speed is too important for how I play. I consider it a vital defensive stats that is not calculated into ehp.
I skimp on allres because I consider it the most overrated sought-after stat for the WD. It comes standard on pox, marrow, zuni bonus, and rolls easily on shoulders. Stacking int provides additional allres. Our skillset lacks incentive to max out on cc/cd and our resource system doesn't mesh well with attackspeed. With gruesome feast, the stat to stack is revealed.
Allres has a diminishing return after a certain point. I gain over 275 allres when fully buffed on sh/gf reaching 911 with both at 5 stacks.
What does appear often in the WD skillset is hp. So that is why i have 88.8k hp.
I stack some dex because I have found that control impairment attacks like knockback/stun/etc are one of the few things that kill me. Also dodging can prevent monsters from breaking your channeling of bats.
My ehp is over 750k which is enough for mp10.
I will maybe consider getting more armor.
Rd is a hurdle for me because I don't want to play slow n steady or carry around a skorn. I like to leeroy into packs. I used a gg 6% lifesteal skorn for awhile a few weeks ago. It was great for rd but I like to attack fast.(and move fast, 24% ms)
I didn't die against the plague/rd blazing guardians but it was a little slow.
The only death was a very strange. I ran up to the rd pack, held position/spammed bats and pressed spirit walk. I must have landed 3-4 rd crits at once because I died yet sw started cooldown.
I've figured it out now. I sw attack, wait for rd to turn off then attack, when rd turns back on, run over to white mob and GI sw cooldown to 0 then repeat the previous steps.
