Is Paragon really better than SoV? And wouldn't Jah runes in the weapon be more efficient damage-wise?

What does SoV provide a hammerzon thats beneficial to the build? Spell dmg helps with nothing, because literally every single stuff you can use from the storm tree scales with wdm. And the 25% life is negligible when you have 0 vit invested, and it doesnt actually increase your total life by 25%, because you already have other sources of %life from charms, and that 25% is just added on top of it.

Gromotvod would work last season, because hammer scaled lightning damage with spell damage, but I believe that part was removed from the damage cap issues, so they buffed the %WDM from 150 -> 200 to boost the physical a bit in place of the lightning.

since i made a video of my pally i figured id make one of my zon too. giving a quick demonstration of how easy farming dunc is on a mostly geared hammerzon. easy kills, tanky af. unfortunately the connection was interrupted after a few minutes but its enough to get the idea.

so outa curiosity i tried throwing a maffers/geleb combo on instead of rogue foresight and wind runners. essentially it added a a bit of damage, some life, cb, and a stupid amount of ias/hit recovery/ block speed. personally i hate having my attack on the left mouse button (right taken by wolf stance), but it seems to be a viable endgame option if you cant find windrunner/rogue. overall, its pretty much a sidegrade once you have endgame gear since the changes are all negligable but maybe for leveling purposes it wouldnt be a bad idea.

I actually used Ismail’s and Maffer’s combo and the combat speeds granted by the chest + several of the other stats were preferable to the alternative IMO. Loved the combo.
