First of all I quite obviously are advising against mixing, so I frankly don't understand what exactly you're questioning about my post.Quote from MONK_P100
Even though you have the ring, you probably cannot fit Captain Crimson set with Tal set and Vyr set with optimal stats. CDR is the most important stat for achon build and if you're not optimized with it, why care to play archon with Vyr set? Not to mention how to optimize skills/elements for Tal meteors.Quote from AlistairWhile I do agree that the two should probably not be mixed, I disagree with several of your points. Running 4-piece Tal Rasha, you only stack one element, exactly as with archon, and it might as well be arcane. There's absolutely no reason to mix elemental damage ever. Also why on earth would you have to give up aughild to run Tal Rasha and archon? That makes absolutely no sense. Tal Rasha doesn't even have shoulders or bracers and neither does Vyr and you might as well not use Tal head if you have other pieces to get 4-set bonus. Even with Born set andCaptain Crimson, you still don't need to drop Aughild set. But you can of course not have 4-piece Tal Rasha, 4-piece Vyr, Born and Captain crimson. But drop either the Vyr or Captain Crimson/born, and you can have both,Quote from MONK_P100
Both Tal Rasha and archon are very strong builds. However, when you try to get the best from the two worlds, they both become sub-optimal.
You want Tal Rasha proc 4 elements, but all +all arcane damage for archon build.
You wantRCR for Tal build butCDR for archon build.
You have to give up Aughild set and Captain Crimson set which are excellent for archon build.
I have all the pieces for the two builds and I decidednot to have a merge.
Is it optimal? Probably not, I haven't tried it. But assuming CDR on some gear, you could quite easily go without 10% CDR from Born for instance.
But to answer your main question, which is about CDR, about 60% cooldown vs about 56-57% cooldown isn't much of a difference. 10% loss in cooldown when stacking it everywhere else is, as I said, not going to make much of a difference. If you can use Captain crimson, Tal, Vyr and Aughild (which you can), you can of course get "optimal" stats on them. Why wouldn't you be able to? It makes absolutely no sense.
But as I said, mixning Tal rasha and archon build is probably suboptimal
