As we know %Pierce damage bonuses are pretty scarce throughout Grim Dawn items because Zantai for some reason refuses to fix lower %Pierce values that items still have from old Titan Quest engine. So basically there are three Legendary gloves that give %Pierce damage: Chilling Grip of Hagaraad, Gauntlets of Ignaffar and Viperfang Grips. First two can’t be used by Pierce builds because of conversion and Viperfang don’t have any attack speed or any relevant Pierce skill bonuses.
Pierce builds end up using Grasp of Unchained Might that are Physical/Bleeding gloves or inferior Epic options.
I think it’s quite unfair given how very few options piercers have, so here are my suggestions:
- Give %Pierce damage to Grasp of Unchained Might
- Give %Pierce damage to Crimson Claws and add some kind of relevant Pierce skill mod and/or bonus like +3 to Aura of Conviction/25% Elemental converted to Pierce.
