You can slot in 100 para into dex or 200 depending on your para level, dex will give you armor and you wont see diminishing returns on armor around 18,000. Once you are around there you can just dump the rest into vitality. It isn't a bad idea this early on into the season to augment 2 int gems around 80-90 for the added all res

Build Guide

Hey fellas,

This is just a gear layout of the chill build I went over in the linked video. This build focuses on having a WD in the group. There are variants of the build but this is your tried and true stable ol inna 4 pc with the bleed on weapon set up.

Its important to make sure that one weapon has bleed on it, you could sacrafice RCR to roll bleed on hit or possibly CDR but make sure you have enough CDR that you arent gimping your rotation to get back into epiphany.

If you feel tough enough you could drop eso for gogok but that usually comes with more para/better gear as the season goes on. Like I said in the video you could also swap out the inna belt and leorics helm to keep your 4 pc and get some melee dmg mitigation when swapping eso for gogok. There are also some variants that utilize laws of seph in the helm slot if you are running into spirit management issues.

Also you are going to want to grab a hellfire that enables you to run that fifth passive to get your proc NDE. by running STI ALAC you are upping your attack rate = upping healing and dmg reduction for the group. Beacon and resolve are also vital.
