    posted a message on Rerolling Hellfire Amulet (LoN bombardment)

    I would reroll vit > phys % in a heartbeat. You can get vit on other pieces. getting CDR is hard. amulet, rings, shoulders, gloves, weapon, shield. You basically want all of it.

    posted a message on LoN bombard weapon damage question

    So I know I've seen it all over the place saying that you should be rolling off weapon damage ideally and get another stat (like AD, CDR) but I'm trying to understand why weapon damage plays no part in the damage equation, or not much. I understand that steed charge: spiked barding has 0 weapon damage modifiers. However, our primary damage source Bombardment: Barrels of Spikes has both:


    2850% total weapon damage and the rune increases the damage by 200% of your thorns. Wouldn't you ideally want high weapon damage as well, since that's boosted by 2850% * 200% * thorns? Or am I just totally misunderstanding how the weapon damage modifier works?

    posted a message on Invoker Punish vs. LoN Bombard?

    LoN bombard isn't brain dead, it's just a different playstyle than we are used to. To be fair, I've played a lot of invoker punish and I find that to be brain dead in actually a similar way. Both builds rely on toughness and choosing your battles and staying alive in the fray. I say invoker is braindead because you're spamming punish and using your CDs to keep you alive; really not that different than bombard.

    posted a message on Speed build anyone?

    I just changed from LoN blessed shield to LoN bombard last night. I think 2 min is easily my average for a rift, if not faster. Half the time is picking up loot. Thorny pony pales in comparison. The DPS boost from LoN is just too good. You need really specific gear to do it well, but if you have it, it's great. I use ancient swiftmount and in-geom in the cube. You don't even need mortal drama for TX, things die so fast.

    posted a message on LoN Blessed Shield

    I find it's not that viable for higher GRs. You lose too much mitigation compared to other builds. The nice thing about LoN bombard is that you can gear around having much higher toughness than shield, since you need dps stats for shield to be effective. I enjoyed shield for half a week or so farming TX and some GRs, but after swapping to LoN bombard last night, I can't go back to shield. It's too underpowered in comparison.

    I still don't understand why pigsticker is better than an IAS doombringer. Since all of your skills are physical, wouldn't the 20% boost be better? You can get doombringer to almost 1.5 aps. Pig sticker might be able to get 1.61, but is that really worth the loss of 20% damage to everything? I know it's probably additive, but it still seems like a lot.

    I'd still also take the pig sticker because of the CDR. You want to have 100% uptime of as many abilities as possible.

    posted a message on Most efficient way to Farm for the SS question

    This is an interesting topic that. I've also been looking for an ancient SS or AW. Why are people suggesting GR low 40s instead of full T6 clears if the consensus is to not gamble at kadala? Is there a higher leg drop chance for these things from a RG over just full T6 clears?


    I seem to find that clearing T6 full on average, yields just as much, if not more than a RG kill in the low 40s and you don't have to farm trial keys to do it.

    posted a message on Rhen'ho flayer + TMF pet witch doctor for T6 play
    I have been running this build for about a month or maybe longer. I easily do t6 as box here. What I've noticed is that I change my gear depending on the mobs in the rifts. In my inventory, I always keep nemesis bracers, unity, uhkapian serpent and Shukrani's Triumph. If I encounter a rift full of Act V mobs, I usually will swap to unity and replace my SoJ to pad my hp since exarchs, anarchs and the like do so much damage. If I need even further mitigation cause I'm lazy or just really need it, I will swap out my thing of the deep for the serpent. I always keep TMF on one slot though, as I like how the dog does so much damage on mobs that kill my fetishes quickly.

    I say just keep a toolbox of items in your inventory and just swap for when you need things. If you aren't to the point where you are steamrolling T6, then obviously you take what upgrades you can get and use those. The main thing that you need out of all of this to do T5+ easily (just imo) is rhen'ho flayer, mask of jeram and tasker & theo. Other than that, you can really salt to taste your items.

    posted a message on HARDCORE WD Looking for tips with Jade! Appreciated
    Be really careful on playing jade. If you play higher torments, you have to get within SH range, so I'd be wary playing HC with it. TBH, I'd opt for a pet build personally if you are doing HC. If you insist on play jade HC, I would say you NEED ukhapian serpent + dogs.

    It functions the same as snapshotting crits used to. Your full dot damage is based on the buffs you have at the time of casting.

    Rhen'ho isn't meant to do more damage, it's meant to spawn more fetishes. Try using addling toads. Once you do that, t5/t6 become very doable.

    yeah just play the build you want at the torment level you want. No point in burning out. I love my build. Rhen'ho flayer is awesome!

    If not, try jade harvester? Just keep playing until you build up sets.
