Stick with rares. You can get some good stuff on there like +1 skill, -10% light pierce, unseelie curse, magic find or leech. amulet is same way. you can get hymn proc (life on attack boost), 3 skill, up to 15 pierce I believe, a bunch of flat life and defense, ias, flat attributes. there's lot of stuff. but generally stick with rares, yea.

If you find a

-(15 to 21)% to Enemy Lightning Resistance
+(21 to 29) to Supernova
Total Character Defense plus (21 to 25)%
-5 to Light Radius

, you can temporarily use that but you don't get much from it besides the skills and pierce since you already have a lot of TCD.

It might be a pet peeve, but why bother prebuffing when invictus' proc is weaker than the motw axe and overwrites it?

I didn't use Jitan's Gate for vanity. I blinked using Pax Mystica over to the room where crystal ball is without trpping nuns and stormblasted it down and let ctcs and dots do the work when i did die.
