how do you think the new patch changes this build? im doing it for the most part now and ive done a lot of the easy and mid ubers atm. just did kabraxis and the stones but the damage of limpet seems a bit lackluster. sitting at around 2.7k right now maybe im just spoiled from playing totem nec last season. are you playing limpet this season nitz?

i really really like your guide writeup. very complete and dirt cheap. i just transitioned to crafts so maybe ill fine tune my gear tomorrow.

edit: is it possible to make

in a war sceptre and still hit the speed breakpoints? the changes to tiefling make me feel like i should always use a claw now or can i still use the war sceptre for more jewel space.

2,7k is like nothing (or I don't know the new dmg things but high endgame one hitted kab and early was like 3 hits, no idea how that's now without heroic shields), do you have a +5 skill amulet? 3 Skill helmet? 2 skill armor? Bloodlust?

I just played a bit to test it - I didn't notice that the limpet range was reduced. I don't know the new castspeed things but it's sad that tiefling got nerfed hard but now with a better castrate with claws ATMG should be nice.

I don't play this season I really have to study hard I got twice as many finals as everyone else thanks to an error, don't want to lose 1 year of income.

How much -enemy res do you hit with crafts?

thanks for the fast response nitz

indeed the damage rework changed things significantly so i dont know the true damage values how they stack up

i have a 4 skill amulet ( no blessed oils anymore) so no 5 skill
no more double mo in 2017
i have a 3 skill helmet and a 2 skill armor currently rocking only one bloodlust claw because ive been too lazy to roll another. im hitting -143 with crafts now which i think is overkill since no more heroic shields. my friend gave me a sash of shadows as well.

ive been progressing okay its just not as faceroll as i expected from watching your videos.

How about endgame cast speed? Got any idea how slow it is?

Generally I think that nova bomb should be stronger anyways now without ND. But this needs much testing to figure out which has more killspeed and which is better for charm run/easy TA dunc runs until melee endgame gear.

so you think i should craft a nova bomb claw and a set of ornate gear?

as far as cast speed im not sure how to determine that since im not sure if the speedcalc is updated for 2017 yet

I don't think it's updated either but how does it feel? Yes ornate claw/shield with +20 to nova bomb, rest ornate stuff. When it had ND I did most of the content with that built it was pretty fast. Also nice for cows/TA

According to version log only sentries from assassin's skill tab have no nd. Nova bomb oskill should still have it. Nothing changed.

I can't chose a weapon when I chose tiefling (It says slower cast than sin with claw) and I don't understand why the new tiefling should have no block animation.
