I briefly tried reckless power when @Crittrain and I were going hard on druid options, but switched back pretty quickly. GT sheet damage is up a bit on your layout, but iirc GT does not factor in the 33% of 609% damage bump (or with current layout the additional 30% of 250% on tempest as well). The crit damage difference bumps total damage 9.3% when plugged into the calculator. I think I’d try to lean hard into the attack speed advantage going with reckless, similar to what aether VoS PS looks like on ritualist. Also makes me realize I need to fish for more OA when I come back to this again.
The devo layout I have tried. Current layout skips viper as I expect wind devils spamming hand of ultos to cover that % RR, but it’s not as sure fire application as viper I spose. That said, of the major lightning devo trees (spear + ultos, spear + korvaak, ultos + korvaak) and the less used tempest layout I have now, I don’t notice a ton of difference. I like the current tempest layout for the extra potential peak, and most importantly, because it keeps a lightning spam aesthetic! But really down to personal preference imo, the differences felt very minor.
DA concerns fall off deaf ears for me personally, I’m well into my post DA phase. Is a good call out for folks that want that higher, or adjusting devos to take solemn watcher.
Have you done any crucible or SR runs with that reckless power layout?
