You've gone full MF. MF is only worth it if it doesn't hurt your clearspeed considerably. You shouldn't have any problems killing Necrobots due to Widow change + using Buriza, but it looks like your LL is extremely low. Either consider getting more LL (sockets, different pieces of gear like SBS instead of Hratli, Idol of Rygnar instead of Witchhunter's hood etc) or try farming with Hwanin. The physical proc from it helps immensely with leeching.

Is it really worth to put 6/13 points into a 4%/strike proc skill?
What does that actually math out to in terms of extra damage/Leeching?

In a single target situation with no other procs than Flametail (worst case scenario, never true while farming), Hwanin's proc is >25% of all leech you have

25 average Widow bolts to proc it once, 60% WDM per bolt, 20% leech-able damage casue of conversion: 25 * 60 * 0.2 = 300 leech-able WDM. 1 Hwanin proc = 100 leech-able WDM

This is also assuming that the Flametail will not proc itself, which is also an unrealistic situation.

Now if we say that the proc hits 5 enemies (pretty norm in Dunc/Fauzt), the amount of leech Hwanin is to thank for becomes 500 WDM units. That's 62.5% of your leech

Now I'm gonna stop doing math here because it'll hurt my head to continue but consider the following points:

    Hwanin can proc itself.
    Every on-striking proc you have magnifies the amount of on-striking procs happening
    Hwanin's AoE is not shabby with 14/28 points in Flametail

and most importantly, Hwanin has NO CONVERSION. A big reason leeching with Widowmaker sucks currently is not because you don't deal enough physical damage with it, it's that you deal too much magic/fire. The mobs simply die before you can properly leech out of them

There's no best xbow and ITD is overrated (helps slightly)

If you're farming, use Hwanin.
There are better options for *single target.

No, it gives MF without a heavy opportunity cost. TA trophy is imo the go-to for Sleep
