Pretty much the final allocation of skill points, bar the extra point in Smite which needs to be moved and maybe take some points out of Righteous Fury to use elsewhere. Otherwise starting the run through of Ultimate now and just started FG stuff right after Burrwitch just for the hell of it. So haven’t had a chance to fully check it out vis Celestial’s and super bosses. But so far it carves though everything even lacking the final 6 skill and 4 attribute points and can run away very easily. Well except for Valdarian, which I died once to because with Fevered Rage he’s very deadly.
Gear wise I think the current set up is okay, haven’t been able to think up a better way to cover resistances that doesn’t lower retaliation. What it could do is more armour and better overcapping, but the acid retaliation armour etc doesn’t leave much leeway here. Could swap the belt though for Murmur’s Kiss to have fire retaliation all converted to acid damage, but the loss the current ones boni I think it’s worth to just keep the Myth. Thorny Girdle of Misty Glade. Especially as the Dreeg cult belt can’t roll suffixes according to GrimStash.
RR wise thanks to mods on some skills this has acid RR 85% + 28 flat total RR, so it’s pretty decent so far.
Devotions wise - I’m sort of okay with the current map, but acid retaliation doesn’t have the same support as physical does and it needs some RR support, for which Manticore works well. As for Affliction the flat acid retaliation it provides makes it mostly worth taking and the proc helps killing bosses since you can stack multiple pools beneath them. But, Messenger of War’s proc + the current ~80% conversion of fire to acid retaliation is starting to look really, really good. As does Targo the Builder’s Shield Wall, but no way to get it without dropping Manticore.
The alternative devotion map I came with is here: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/62aMOLg2
Only gives 100% extra retaliation due to dropping some nodes to get shield wall, but it gives max ~310,000 acid retaliation after conversions from fire and 20% physical to acid and also push armour up to 4300. Could be worth getting though since total acid RR provided is a massive 115% instead of 85% + 28 total RR from the current devotions map.
However I can’t get both Targo and Messenger without dropping either Murmur or Manticore, which while it push retaliation up to 330,000 base for acid (about 335,000 with conversion) I think, the loss of RR makes it non viable against heavily acid resistant enemies /sigh
Anyhow, any advice or criticism is welcome to help refine this to the best it can be.
Now to finally have some fluffing dinner, it’s nearly 10pm ;-; But this always happens when I fall into autistic hyperfocus mode on something lawl.
