Since the new patch "Poison Dart % damage" is added to your fetish damage, and u can have 15% p-dart on pants.
So 8% as +15% dmg VS 20% dmg. Make your choice.
well, to be fair its 8% as + 15% dmg VS 20% dmg + 15% dmg, p-dart % also possible on SLW, right? make your choice. the difference is the loss of a main stat (vita)
but you gotta look at it differently, taking diminishing returns into account. with the regular pet build and Jerams Mask with up to 100% pet dmg, additional %elemental dmg wasn't too beneficial.
Now with Carnival mask it is. you might have 60% from bracers, amu and soj, only 40% with unity in high rifts. so 20% from SLW does a good job.
on the other side, attack speed is also increased from BBV and gogok. the right balance is the key. if you use amu without % poison and a gogok, SLW is a good choice to increase your poison dmg. Its not if you are lacking as on your items.
just my 2 cents
Im now at 3 rimehearts. 1 shard of hate. 1 smk and 1 odyn's son. And a metric shittonne of generic 1h axes and swords.
Still no dagger of darts.
I get around 20-30 weapons per 1 ceremoinial knife. And when i first get one. I get the spider queen knife. (with the exception of the terribly rolled smk) I can go an entire day with only one ceremonial knife. Is the drop rate fucked up ?
When playing my dh or monk i get a lot more Bows and fist weapons then i get Ceremonial knives on my WD
I played like 300-350 hours getting 4 ceremonial knives, 2 spider queen a last breath and an anessazi edge, so yea i think they are pretty fucking terribly rare overall. I was a bit lucky with dagger of darts and kadala, i got a 2400 dps one pretty quick (it has 10% dmg and 7% ias and almost minimum roll on the x-y damage...)
I tested it yesterday and for me BoTP is better option. My enforcer gives me 26% dmg bonus but BoTP gives me 15% to elites and 20% dmg bonus for 61 sec, so this 20% bonus is up in most of time. Have no reason to change 15%(elites)+20%dmg for 26% dmg to all. Maybe if I will update Enforcer to 35+% dmg then I will change it.
I'll try it out and change the Rune. The PTR is up so I think I'll give it a go and try to see if the 2.2.0 stuff helps out any.
With the reworking of Zuni, seems like there are some decent combos of adding lower level Set Buffs together.
I didn't like the new Zunimassa buff, but it is definitely good for Carnevil!
Atm the pants are a normal leg (not part of the set), i guess it's just a mistake and blizz will fix it soon, in that case we would remove Cain'set for gloves+pants from Zuni and get huge buff to this build! We would, as well, remove FS as passive for something better, and remove WoZ (in my case) for a spender (i'd go Acid Rain i think)
I logged on my Carnevil WD, equipped with pre 2.2 gear. Just put on some gems and cleared a 45 without even having to focus on the rift while watching some shit on Twitch... The build is so much more powerful now it's insane. I'll get to farming some of the new pieces after i'm done with my wizard and then probably go for 50+ attempts (Orak watch out i'm coming for ya ).
So i cleared a 50 quite easily - I was very well ahead of time but the last pack before the RG had the worst affix combo ever and i wasted like 2 minutes on it so my total clear was like 14:xx in the end.
Anyway i wanted to ask you Orak, how the hell did those guys on the leaderboard clear 54+ ? I tested some 55 and the fetishes just die so fast... Not sure if it's even possible. I guess it's just fishing for an extremely easy rift with nothing but melee mobs and no elite packs...
Also, has Zei been tested as a replacement for enforcer? If it works with fetishes it might be superior since people are clearing 54+ anyway, it means you don't really need the extra toughness on fetishes that comes from enforcer. I'm guessing that Zei's only works for your dart but it might not be the case as similar to the DH where sentries gain a bonus from Zei's also.
