Theorycrafting around greens: Vit PB Reaper

I got two drops that caught my eye. One is a Heart Piercing Spectral Arbalest, the other is a double rare Reaper’s Leggings with Thunderstruck and Incantations. Together, they’re speaking to me to make a PB Reaper. So I put them together in GT and came up with this:

It has low slow res and phys res, and there is unconverted cold damage on BH. And the crossbow blocks the Demonslayer pistol, so I get +1 projectile instead of 2 and I don’t get the extra Blade Spirit. That’s about the only complaints I have. Would the flat damage, cunning and OA from Heart Piercing be good enough to make up for that?

No, not even close.

Bummer but that’s life. What would be the choice for an offhand, Og’napesh? Virulent Maw? A green Groble Death Effigy? It looks like the conversion on Speaker of the Dead makes it unusable for vitality.

Unfortunately, due to PB themselves being overnerfed they can’t properly carry a build as they could before. You need those steroided Blade Spirits from the full set. Off-hand either Virulent Maw or the one that buffs Spirits. You can pretty much copy a lot of stuff from my Dervish:

Naaah, I’ll just go with your Oppressor build instead. <3
