Are you using perfect being, shadow refuge and prismatic cloak? Artifice mastery + double claws?

is it because of max Life/Mana?

Anarchy has +4 skills, very low damage increase, while Implement 7 has +5 skills and nice dmg boost (20% spell dmg)

i can compare anarchy with sagittarius... but then what is the best? 7 vs 4 skills, and on top of that sagittarius boost also life/mana (not as Anarchy).

so would you choose Anarchy over other options for increased life, trading off damage?

There is spell and weapon slow. Both are limited to 25% on bosses. Catalyst is spell slow so u can add wep slow on top of it for 50%.

Depends on the situation. Dual claw Sagittarius/Implement V.II is better than Double Rha rw in 90% situations. The 10% would be Witch/Void final fight. For the latter, getting a lot of life recovery is recommended too. The rest, better kill fast.

Miasma is a spell that curses and catalyst is area slow so they shouldn't cancel each other out. But even if they do Miasma is worth it, -33% enemy dmg and ar is no joke so definitely use Bogspitter.

anyone know the reason why the boots that make traps dmg actually viable also cut immolation trap radius in 1/2? in tandem with only 1 charge per lightening sentry, me thinks marco doesn't like trap users lol. 20 seconds is so long you can't really use it very well, and it feels requried to have any decent dmg output. but the boots cut it to 10, and subsequently make immolation trap essentially melee only.
