Also I am thinking of doing some Xis rw's - anyone running with Rebel or Dawn?


highest damage doesn't always get priority if it's too slow to hit your breakpoints. I think Giant Axe is the highest damage anyways for 2h axes (non-barb)?

Yes Giant my mistake, how would I calculate that in tree form? I am using such at the moment and it seems fast.

This is example of a bad crafting :D As noted:
not luckied
proc won't proc with thorns

However I just did not roll anything better with on striking/on kill procs yet.

Im not sure why you settled for an on-attack proc and MO'd life on attack if you're doing thorn strike, since it's not a melee attack. it's a ranged missile weapon attack basically. unless you're doing wildfire?

if you're doing wildfire, I've got no idea why you went for max physical damage since it's a fire spell

First time I played TReewarden, I also thought it can proc "on attack" spell :)

Well, crafted 1 day so far and out of 3 giant axes only on attack proc rolled with high ed/max dmg at the same time so that's the only reason - I'd rather see something else - still crafting ;)
(Life on attack was crafted not mo'ed - I mo'ed ed, max dmg and 1% ds just out of the blue)

I've done Rebel in eth gothic plate, it added some damage, makes nimmen+flying saucer nicer to use. (but hey, I still have to eat 200-300 sigs)
Now I am thinking one could go for Dawn(100% bonus to all attributes) in war axe and craft 2% block 5-10% DR dex/str shield and have around 30-40% block without much effort (I am at 20% without putting many points in dex - maybe 100). 50% would require dex crafts I guess, but would bring us at least on par with Melee sorc in terms of defs.
Or Shark in Giant Axe for physical damage, but not sure it's worth compared to a craft.

From my current tree point of view Epicenter boots could be good - max life +31-40%(this would get me to around 20k), though I would loose around 300 str as I use Steppe Sleeper set boots 38% Str bonus.

Maneuverability. It helped me to evade from Baal cruel attacks, to move quickly from umbaru spirit to umbaru spirit and saved my ass from time to time at duncraig or simply quickly to run from a dangerous location such as Bull Prince Rodeo show :D
