hm weird. this char so ez :D



no but really: dark pact doesnt really do anything for you compared to royal circlet, which is bis for this build with ease. dont forget that + skills boosts damage from maelstrom skill.
rebel armor is ok, but a good craft is better imho (with +2 skills and +100dex/+15%dex from rare modifiers, also life or +%vit/+%all attributes)

did you have to put stats in str? if so consider
Shark (Xis)
Shark
Weapons

'TaXis'
Runeword Level: 120
1% Chance to cast level 31 Bloodlust on Kill
+(60 to 100)% Bonus Damage to Bloodlust
40% Attack Speed
+200% Enhanced Damage
+2 to Maximum Damage (Based on Character Level)
+5 to all Attributes
-500 to Mana
Cannot be Unsocketed
, for imba allstat boost, and respec to 100% dex stat allocation.

did you use jewels for the 176/200 breakpoints? if so, the fhr is really not worth it and fbr also debatable, just use amethysts.

MOd everything with +dex and maybe +flat dmg?

6k dex is the your problem. The build is bad if you have low dex no matter how good your breakpoints are.

My char still has 10k dex even i'm using Void (12k dex with Dawn)

Bad items. Make a craft, or use a royal circlet or a witchhunters hood for helm. For body armor, a craft with high %dex from shrine and flat dex from affixes (keep in mind that all stat affixes are in the same group, so you can not have %dex/%allstat and flat dex/allstat at the same time), and possibly 2 all skill. For glove, a craft is 100% much better with high flat dex. You underestimate the importance of flat dex from gear, it is a lot when you have a lot of bonus (i have 400%+ dex bonus). Also are you using tiefling form?

rebel gives me 10% dex and 287 flat dex - all in all was better than any +2skill / 50% dex / 100-130 flat dex crafted armor ( i just used the one that made me do the most damage lol ( rebel it was )

I have a royal circ also but was testing the dark pact - it helped with living lol

i have no idea how yall arer reaching 10+ k dex or anything above 10k life

gloves - ill test a crafted pair
I also have a crafted belt i use but it dont change my damage but by 1k and its a 30% dex / 70 flat

but my base stats with tiefling form

75str / 1005 dex / 15 vit / 15 ene
216% dex ( this goes up with royal circ )
155 ias
205 fhr
166 fbr
85 frw
155 fcr
