Band of might, ignore pain, warcry, stormshield, 30% from sword & board, relentless, gogok.
Well, none of those preclude using Crimson, which would give you still better (much better) defense.
The only defensive configuration I can think of that R6 can use and Crimson can’t is wear PoC, Stone Gauntlets in cube.
I like the focus/restraint style gameplay more. not a big fan of endless walk unless you are very stationary.
Fair enough! It is definitely a good setup also.
But: not tougher, generally speaking.
Easier to not die i think and to stay about 50% life. There’s a micro second before relentless kicks in & without band of might its ouch city. Its not my ideal build, i was mostly goofing around. Trying to keep life low so i get the AS % bonus from r6.
Wait… are you under the impression that the Crimson setup doesn’t use Band of Might?
Because, that is definitely not true! The two best ring/ammy setups for Crimson are:
BoM + CoE + RoRG + Squirt
BoM + RoRG + EW
Both give a little bit more damage than a F+R setup. More toughness, too, UNLESS you are using F+R with PoC (worn) and Stone Gauntlets (cube). That’s the only F+R version with any sort of superior toughness potential.
Unless they add some serious built-in mitigation for this set, it is unlikely that any setup for this build, at any paragon level, will drop BoM.
Yeah not a big fan of crimson & bom w/o coe. Squirts, bom & coe maybe. EW & coe if you are good at occulus camping.
edit - tried the EW/BoM thing. good damage. still feels squishier thou for some reason. On live my new favorite spec will be whatever RNGejus gives me.
The simplest solution is doing it like D2, allow heal and resource number to be displayed in the globe.
Endless Walk set + BoM + Stone Gauntlet + Cassius + 2 skills just for survivability.
Dang this is bad. The set’s totally glassy.
What about using Parthans instead of Stone Gauntlet?
after doing captains and EW, I went back to R6. Focus/restraint, pride of cassius/stonegaunlet, etc and lvled up the leaderboard without any fishing. I am trying to stay under 1000 paragon. Most of the builds are really good. If you know how to play they all work. I would just suggest going with whatever RNG blesses you with.
Yep, that’s good advice. Or, just going by personal preference will probably make more difference, in most cases, than any actual power difference. There’s a rarely-mentioned “I like this build” bonus that is probably worth about 3 GRs!
Is it worth crafting a legendary spear at season start?
You’ve got a 2/3 chance of getting a weapon that gives you up to +200% damage. So the odds there are basically the same as when crafting a 2H Mighty Weapon (4/6 of these give a big damage buff). But the spears don’t give as big a damage buff (200% for spears vs 500% for FotVP, 800% for Gavel + Tribes, and 1000% for Bastion’s). And two of those 2H MWs also combine with easy-to-get bracers (Destruction and First Men) for another big buff.
So, spears are probably not worth it for leveling.
