Hello, my apologies if anyone has covered this before but I haven’t been able to find the exact topic. My question is: is there a point at which adding thorns ceases to add significant damage to the Invoker thorns build?
The reason am asking is because I recently found a primal belt of the trove and it came with 1 useless stat, punish dmg. I checked the leaderboard and everyone with primals in the top 20 or so decided to enchant thorns whether or not they had a useless stat. Next I decided to see the difference for myself on d3 planner. In the simulations I ran (repeatedly) there was no difference in DPS when adding the additional 9.5k thorns. The only DPS difference came from my previous belt being an 8 second cast to the primal being a 6 second cast.
If there truly is no damage difference by adding that 9.5k thorns then it seems it would be better to keep the 7% melee reduction and change punish % to life %.
If there is something the top of the leaderboard knows that I don’t, please clue me in. Also, please test on d3 planner for yourself.
