This is basically something similar to what I did in vanilla with Spellbreaker and Dual Decrees. The idea of the build is to increase potency of the skill to the point it doesn’t need Devastation. Of course picking Devastation would be a performance boost but our main aim is to not go for it.
Spellbreaker should still be solid but it lacks life steal and relies on short CD of PB.
I wouldn’t have posted if I hadn’t reached Malmouth. Fabius, Moose and Queen are a confirmed kill
Grava didn’t show up (can murder you if he debuffs you).
Against Kuba I noticed that the PRM fragments allow you to hit all 4 Kubas at once :D. So aim for the right Kuba in the pack
I don’t bother going beyond Steelclap in most build tests these days so I won’t be meeting Aleks anytime soon as I lack some rep
Lastly, janodal’s build cleared Glad 150 at some point so pretty sure his build is solid. If it was pure Elemental it’d have sucked but it ain’t. His build is Fire/Lightning PRM so it’s solid.
On a side note you can use Farath’s Cube for Cold/Lightning PRM + TSS nuker using Eastern/Trozan set using Amatok + Ultos in devotions.
Since i have around 50% WD Reckless Power is the way to go for me. I don’t hate Reckless Power but I do understand the mentality of preferring Defensive Auras
Of course after I return I’ll test things and see for myself if this MI is BiS or not. Depending on whether the conversion affects PRM’s modifiers as well is what would determine if this item is BiS or not
I’m pretty sure the conversion affects the modifiers. Look at Mythical Invoker’s Shard for example, 100% conversion aether to lightning, but aether only appears in the modifiers, so…
By the way, I’m also working on a new version of PRM, but running fire/lightning instead since Invoker set got buffed, will see how it goes.
^ i am also playing melee prm builds but still too much in love with the elem range version.
ot: regarding forcewave I have updated mine too. thanks to chaos res additions to earthshatter treads I am back go using beronath ammy for more crit damage. though elem forcewave setuo is too tempting right now due to outside procs despite the lower sheet skil fw dps…
back to aether prm, I am not discounting and giving up on aether and will find ways to close the gap with elem.:undecided:
