I am just thinking here about possible RoS builds…this is what I would like to use eventually:
Main Hand: Last Breath
Off Hand: Homunculus
Belt: The one that turns health globes into bombs…or The Witching Hour
Havent thought about the other gear, yet, but the MH/OH are essential to my thinking
LC: Zombie Chargers--Zombie Bears
RC: MC--Unstable Realm
1: Spirit Walk--Honored Guest
2: BBV-Slam Dance or SH-Swallow Your Soul
4: Zombie Dogs- Final Gift
The Last Breath, TR, MC combo is still something I am very excited about. Mix that in with Dogs that are on a cool down of 15-25 seconds before GI, and you can probably have a few dogs to regen health at all times. Plus, you would have random globes from Final Gift, too.
I was running BR and SA together on the PTR and my bears were out for a while with a 2h…not sure how a 2h would work. Granted, I had 1300 mana and 83 mana regen. If Last Breath adds mana regen, that pushes 95 mana per second.
With 10% mana cost reduction (honestly i have no idea how this compares with other stuff at lvl 70, but…) and BR, your skills are costing 25% of their original cost. So bears now costs 113. Even at 1.5 APS, you are only spending 75 mana per second to take out confused enemies. Considering 1300 mana, that gives you 17 seconds of bears before you go OOM. (At 1.18 AS, 83 mana regen, 1300 mana, bears lasted for 26 seconds).
With the enemies confused, it might even be possible to use something like Physical Attunement over GI…something to play around with. Maybe, even, drop GI for CoL. Then drop Dogs, since you dont really need the FG HG, since FTM gives quite a bit of health to begin with, and put on Piranhas…or a different skill that lends towards survivability, like FA. Maybe even throw on a distance spell like WoS/SiW or AR:CB. If you dropped dogs, you could make room for a new Mojo, as well.
Wondering how it would work, too, if you didnt use Tribal Rites. If MC was on 5 sec cooldown (UR ruin with 40sec from LB), then you could use another passive, while using CoL. Pick one…I'd probably go with GI then. Cast Pirahnas, run up to mob, bears bears bears, MC, bears bears bears, repeat.
Dammit I wish I could test this stuff.
Anyhoo, 4:30am with nothing to do, so this is where that led me :P
