So... Honest question: How is an Honorific Sacred War-Scepter not better than Legion for HOZ mid-game? It has 6x sockets, 2x MO mods so you're sitting at 60% FCR, 30% LS, 50% MS, and roughly 4/5 the damage that legion would do. I've been rickrolling all ubers up to the mid-120 range with this scepter. Any reason why legion is better (The proc on melee attack doesn't benefit HOZ at all).


I’ma take a shot in the dark and say more survivability with the additional base block chance. Damage is comparable.


But would like 6% extra block chance make up for ~30% LS? I can tank multiple barrels in the middle of an enraged Duncraig mob with the amount of LS I have. my health bar bounces up and down like a hooker in Tijuana... Then the 48% Cast speed lets me hit that 5-frame goodness... That alone is a ~17% damage increase.

Anyone know why Qarak's will says it has 250 % bonus dmg to bloodlust on wiki/in the guide but I found it ingame and it only says 80 % for me, seems almost similar to Kodo + Koth's lesson

Because you should use docs to check real stats of items first of all and maybe read a changelog... there're some clues about why it is so.

save them or put hammer of zerae to 10 points and grab some mana leech if you dont have it

@primarch honorific can work too. its an easier substitute and can customize it to what you need

Thanks, one more question x) I just got 2x assur bane after farming duncraig a bit. You list phys resist as MO for rings, is that the "physical damage reduced by 6" orb? Seeing as there is no actual phys resistance MO what I can see

Yes. He's refering to physical damage reduced Mo's. Also, I may be wrong, but I don't believe that assure bane can be mo'd. Quest item or something....

Hey guys!

Is this build a terrible bosskiller, or am I doing something wrong? I feel like my single target dps is utterly shit. I just hit 110, at the start of act4.
I am using tu war scepter, tu setzschild, tu spangenhelm, a honorfic boots with dex, def, and flat dmg, vith belt rw for the phys resist, some crappy glove, a shitty neck and a ring, and a ring of truth. I am mostly spamming hammer on single target, and debuffing bosses with spellbind, but i do terrible dps.

I usually progress the same way on all my characters, and i never had so much problems with single target dps.

Here are my stats:
► Show Spoiler


I know i could do some optimisation, like resetting my stats for more dex, but that wont really make a big difference.

I used magnetic field agaist tanky bosses/mobs and it melted them like ice cream in summer
