With a fire build my Blessed Crits for ~12m on elites. I don't think that switching to 1H is a good idea.
Also only Block Chance from you Shield (an actual item) is multiplied. It doesn't help you if you have 75% chance to block. Same goes for a passive that increases your armor by your shield's block chance. Only your item's stat is taken into account.
I have 100% fire damage with ~600k dmg and it's way more powerfull than 'unlimited shield' especially since i have Cindercoat and Reaper's Wraps. Shield is 15 wrath, and i have ~150 max wrath.
Your 100% wrong on this, please read the section where someone else said this. Temp buffs and passive DO in fact increase DPS, it has been tested hundreds of times. You can Google or read the post on this as well.
I also said that I don't yet have all of the gear yet, including cindercoat & Reapers wraps.
Could you post your profile and a SS of those hits, just curious to see them in action! Also, you can't really comment on how powerful something is, unless you have tried it yourself. Please give it a try and you won't go back to something that spends wrath.
Not sure if you read my edit. But i did test it, and said that it's in fact working and that it's 'great find' Didn't want to cut my post in case somebody was responding to it.
After I had some issues with Divine Fortress ('buffed' block chance wasn't working with this) I assumed that every tooltip which says 'of SHIELD block chance', works the same way. Obviously it's not! But that's great news.
I tried to play with increased block chance, and i was doing more damage. Although I switched it back to Wrathful because it allows me to tank mobs in T3 while in party (it heals A LOT).
As for shield crits, It's extremely difficult to grab a screenshot of it. I'll try, but it varies a lot. ~11/12m on elites on average, but with buff from my belt and Marked for Death from my brother it goes up significantly Best thing about Combustion is, that the explosion hits the target that it exploded from.
This is my profile. I have quite different numbers in game ~600k dmg and 8.5m toughness (website profile does not include paragon points). This, together with my +93% fire damage, allows me to easily kill packs on T3 within 5/10 seconds. For now it's great fun
I'm missing a lot of CC, but I use Resolve so it's less of an issue for me. But quite a few of my items still suck. Mostly neck and gloves. Also helm and boots Trying to gather mats for crafted set items, since i do have Ring of Royal Grandeur but no luck so far with rolls on crafted item ;p
Anyhow it's the highest character sheet dps, but it gets the job done and it's quite differet from holy Mortal Drama build i was using. And for fire build there is no better weapon than Maximus in my opinion. Fire chain does SICK amount of damage.
Most importantly my SoJ is from my previous build, but unfortunately there is no other ring that can increase your damage by that much. Best rare ring with quadfecta that i have increases my damage by 15% in reference to SoJ. And SoJ is 29% to elites and some extra Wrath
So yeah... No fire SoJ for me yet
If you're still using same build as in OP, I think you'd get more if you switched Bombardment for Shield Glare with 20% increased judgement (works great with Judgement) as its extremely powerfull crowd control, and this way you free up a passive slot for anything else (Wrathful for example, or whatever works for you). Try it Bombardment w/o Mortal Drama isn't that great (I tried it ).
Hi There, your not doing anything wrong, you are just not following the guide or the build. This build requires the 1h flail - Gyrfalcon's Foote which removes the cost of Blessed Shield. In addition, here are the things to note when going for the InfernoShield build:
+Fire Damage is extremely important. My +Fire damage is 47%!! +Find some +damage % to Blessed Shield, mine is currently @ 14%
Missing Judgment - Resolved, greatly increases crit chance on targets'
Missing Towering Shield Passive to increase your block % to increase DPS
Best of luck!
hey, I do have a GyrfaIcon's , and a pretty good one too. 2.4k dps + socket, and 60% bIock. thats what i said, i changed buiIds and items because i cant get around your buiId. i mean, its good fun and i can kiII fast on T2/3 , but im critting for 3.5m, not 8m. and i just dont know why, i just miss some +fire dmg abnd maybe some bIock chance..
right know Xye's buiId with a 2hander is way faster than this buiId, maybe because of myu 2hander proc which hits +350% AoE damage with a 40% chance
