So I’ve been trying out some alternatives to see if they’re better than the BiS in this Invoker build.
Shield of the Steed + Flail of the Charge over Pig Sticker and Akarat’s Awakening: Is the loss of Fervor that great to pick Pig Sticker + AA over this set? I tried this set and changed my Steed Charge rune to Draw and quarter and I find doing bounties better with this set. Naturally, Fervor was replaced with Heavenly Strength.
Instead of The Furnace, I’ve been using Blood Brother. I have no problem killing elites so I think The Furnace is redundant.
Instead of Nemesis Bracers, I’ve been using Angel Hair Braid. Since Punish is the primary damage dealer of this build, I thought getting all the Punish runes to activate would be great. I tried out Heart of Iron for a time but the Thorns boost plateaus after a certain level (or maybe I need to put all my stats in Vit instead of Str?).
Thoughts? Other items and cube powers I should check out?
