I’m inclined to agree with jab on the tankside of things. Maybe 6% phys resist on the proc at most.
The damage bonus on pieces and the set lacking an identity I can fully agree with. I’m not sure if I’m on board for the suggested changes though. I think buffing the blitz side, and giving a strong mod to make fire shattering smash a thing could be thematic and strong if done correctly. (Maybe give it that cool Fx lokar uses) Then give it some strong mods for firestrike that require a shield.
