Tried S&B Blade arc with buffed greens & Bloodrager GRIMTOOLS
Input: ~3600% physical dmg, ~2300% bleeding dmg, 3200+ OA, max AS, 69% phys res., 3300 armor, used high-rolled stuff + double rare weapon
Output:: 6+ min CR in best conditions & could easy die
Conclusion: 1h BA needs much more flat damage to be viable, like 200+ both on this Axe and Shield
Commentary: The best way to use given flat damage is collecting as much physical damage %/OA/Crit as possible, and I’ve done it. BA tooltip is lesser than 50k even with all procs, this is too low. Defensive stats like 69% phys res, 3300 armor, OKish DA and 16%BA lifeleech really do nothing in low damage conditions. I have items with such affixes on my legit account, but used GDstached highrolled stuff just to show how much it sucks and on legit situations is just awful. Guess Targo’s position isn’t better.
