Juat got a cotw with spiral dance, cool attack, I think some sorcs build around it? Anyway I want to build a gear set for my sin around it (currently noctule faceroll sin, getting bored) I think it would be cool to use an axe or sword however I'd lose shadow refuge meaning would need to stack dr items to compensate. Or I could try build spiral dance around my su toe cutter claw?

Also does anybody stack def on shield sins? Kinda over my 25k def and with afew su pieces I could get alot more. (Was just playing with my friends shared bearstance and it made a huge difference.

Any ideas or suggestions appreciated thanks.

Spiraledance was highly nerfed, not worth the effort unfortunately :(

/ with 4 set items on from the Mysteries set .

the COTW makes no sense having while being a Sorc , as you can access that oskill from many other options starting since early game .

Spiral Dance has some delay before the hit is applied (it first swirls in the air a bit), thing that won't be very pleasant for an assassin ,that is usualy squishy and needs to deliver quick damage then gtfo . the weapon damage modiffier is also not worth the trouble + it converts a big chunk of the physical damage to magic damage , so you won't leech too much with it either .

my 2 cents

No sorc only want to try on sin. The 1.2 sec delay definitely would cause issue, however noctule kinda has a delay before life on striking ramps up anyway so I try to blink stun then get a chain going


The wdm multiplier looks really low 25% I believe, wont carry way damage very well?

It's unfortunate that it costs so much mana to use early on too.
