If you can’t find anything good between level 50-90 from drops, I find faction gear is always a good place to check at level 65 and 90 for Coven of Ugdenbog/Barrowholm/Malmouth Resistance and level 70 for the others.
It’s also worth checking craftable weapons, some of those random Blueprints for Epics aren’t half bad for levelling and are easy to make.
A bunch of caster off-hands can be favorable as non-mythicals, mostly the ones that don’t get skill mods as mythicals, just slight increase on stats/proc damage since that’s not always worth around 150 less physique.
I gues this is a “generational” issue :). We “older” players would most likely to think 2h tremor first when we see the word “forcewave” since before octavius (and AoM) that was the only fw worth doing.
I’m not sure how much second rite offers in terms of flat damage, but you’re also denying yourself the flat damage from both grasp of unchained might, olerons belt, the +skills, and a 12 skill point cost of second rite.
Would need math to more accurately assess the situation, but i think it’s worth exploring.
The crit damage and cast speed on bear king medal is invaluable, and the 59 flat damage on second rite is 2.5-3 armor slot worth of flat damage, and 25 vitality resist. And gladiator belt gives a huge OA boost and more resist over oleron’s (those resist could matter when you’re not using greens).
Unchained might’s flat damage is still a loss over second rite’s, and skill point’s are plenty on the build so the only thing i feel bad for is the low armor value of the non-mythical gloves, but i won’t lose sleep over that with almost 60% physical resist :).
While most likely not the best setup (well, considering it has no greens, it’s definetly not the best setup) but it’s still eases through all main game content (except Mog and Ravager of course whom i didn’t even bothered to try :)).
And he uses lvl 68 gloves lol ;).
PS: I don’t really play cruci so i can’t be sure about 170 capability, but i assume it could do it (based on the builds posted here doing it), but if it’s not you can’t blame the gloves alone imho :).
