Any tips on what I can upgrade next?
I'm using bears right now until I get better gear to use CoB. Can farm mp6-7 reasonably effectively.Any tips on what I can upgrade next?
07/02/2013 11:32 AMPosted by PaulNgAt the time of testing, my unbuffed DPS for the 7 Skorns ranged from 167k to 211k. The difference in the kill times was only 25 secs. This means, for the common elite packs in the game, the difference in efficiency may only be 10secs – 15secs, due to the high multipliers and leverage we get from CoB.
07/04/2013 07:04 AMPosted by KyKaHWell I'm not talking about rushing or chatting. I'm talking about the reasoning behind farming mp10 and killing mobs there. The difference in rewards between mp8 and mp10 for example is much less than difference in difficulty. You see people complain about mana and attack speed, how it's difficult to farm mp10, that GI and GF (those are in my opinion are "end-game" passives) are not working well on those levels. I can understand the reasoning and a feel of achievement, but farming mp10 with say 160k dps slows player progression because he struggle at getting more xp and more loot. This is my main point, I don't want to tell you how to play - it's your own fun, but it should be noted that if you want progress fast you better choose difficulty wisely.
To avoid confusion, "End-Game" refers to doing all the quests from Act 1 through Act 4 and completing the game. Some players may want to add Ubers solo at MP10, since that is the most recent content in the game.
Special thanks to KyKah for his feedback.

07/02/2013 11:34 AMPosted by PaulNgThe maximum additional mana regeneration for 1H path is 28 mana/sec.
07/05/2013 11:24 AMPosted by MugelIt is not 28 mana/sec...it is 48 including the zuni set.
07/05/2013 11:24 AMPosted by MugelAlso, I do feel a little of bias for the 2h. The mana regeneration itself opens a lot of possibilities and builds around CoB as well.
So just to add a bit of benefits for the 1h + Mojo:+% Damage to Elites+ Pickup Radius

Face palm. We are from different worlds.Also, I do feel a little of bias for the 2h. The mana regeneration itself opens a lot of possibilities and builds around CoB as well.
This is the CoB guide, using Skorn as the weapon of choice. This whole thread is about CoB, what other possibilities do you want to talk about with CoB as the main skill? Can you list some? List any?
Please read from page 1.So just to add a bit of benefits for the 1h + Mojo:+% Damage to Elites+ Pickup Radius
Sigh, you really want to look through a microscope and list out all the possible rolls of the different mojos? Why didn't you mention about all the interesting stats that a 1H weapon can hold but the Intel+LS Skorn wouldn't have the spare slot to roll? That will add far more dimensions to the 1H possibilities right? Hey! +% Damage to Elites on my 1H weapon. % Freeze stat, that sure helps to hold the mobs in my CoB.
For your info, some of the friends I've had discussions with, they are on the 1H path. The pros and cons, and limitations for each path are clear. The step by step progressions in the guidelines are sound and logical. If you fully understood the concepts within the guide, you can't go wrong, eventually you'll clear MP10 when your budget allows you to gear correctly. There are also new WDs who overtook me in both DPS and mitigation, and cleared MP10 within 2 weeks of being new to the WD class.
I know 1H vs 2H is a touchy topic. I even wrote that statement at the beginning of Topic (4), if you bothered to read at all. I didn't say you must go the 2H path, I said that new WDs coming into Inferno MP0 will survive better going the Skorn path. It's a simple matter of fact.
Open your mind to sound logic. Follow the guidance of one player, whose gear concept and style of play is the type that you enjoy playing, that will be your progression path.
First off, great info here Paul. Nicely done.
Mugel, he wasn't saying the max was 28 regen/sec, but that 28 is the ADDITIONAL mana regen that can be gained, since 2h users will also have the 20 regen/sec from zuni set.
With this said, isn't the additional mana regen possible 42/sec? 14 from weapon, mojo, and helm?
