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

7k life
16-17k maelstorm with dark pact
17-18k maelstorm with royal circ


Where is all your %dex bonus?

If you subtract 75 for not using dawn xis, its still 338%.

And you can't convince me that a rebel is better than this:

His geat are bad and charms are prob worse. How good is your treasure chest? Got triune sleep? Got vizjun and jday trophy? How good is your wormhole?

I dont think Rebel can beat a good craft. My char still have 10k hp and Maelstrom damage is 36k with Void knife, better than Rebel.

i dont have wormwole ( i dont see it giving 4k dex + 15k damage ) ---- however it would help
my umbaru is 1skill / 10 SD / 54 str/ 77 dex/ 90 vit / 65 ene
my cold fusion is - 19 str / 28 dex / 23 vit / 23 ene
If its a charm its either perfect stats / or 1 off mostly high rolls
my craft boots are - +1 sin / 35% dex / 70 flat dex
my craft armor is +2 skill / 50% dex / 100 flat dex ( just a tad under yours )
Rebel - o skills / 10% dex / 280 flat dex / 80 all res
I dont have craft gloves maybe they would help a little ( not 15k damage and 4k dex lol )
Dawn is 75% so that would help a ton

Ofcourse one single item doesnt give you 4k dex and 15k Maelstrom dmg. But with those combination you get can that. My d2stats when i use Void knife

Image

Dont even need to use Dawn to get over 10k dex. No UMOs and no Occult ofc.

I did not mean to butt hurt anyone i was simply testing the build and other items.

all i know is that with rebel vs craft you dont lose anything except %dex but you gain flat dex.
you can craft 2%dex / 13 flat jewels - that is 10% dex + 65 flat dex + 200dex from rebel is 265 flat
highest craft ive ever gotten is my 50% / 100 dex im sure you can get 75% / 150 but nothing much better

rebel makes it easier to reach res cap
you dont lose any damage or i dont with mine vs my craft


Ive also swapped 1x emp band for 1x A rush makes hitting the higher break points easier and I feel it helps with ureh a ton :D

however i am also basing everything with no swap gear - no shamanka or swap wep

just trying to see whats going on i do thank everyone for help.

To everyone wanting to try this guide!
It will work and so far I have made it to Level 130! and i have done every charm myself so it can do it all!
it will farm fauntz / dunc / brem / and it will charm you very well with no respec needed.

If you think with TU gear / a few crafts will you reach 30+ K damage you are wrong.
to get that damage you will need all charms + the gear + a wormhole + shamanka buff + 10 skill swap hand ( youll use this with shadow refuge )
you should be looking at the damage around 15-20k that will carry you in everything and after testing many options on the build I can fill a few spots in

if you are having trouble surviving dark pact will help tons with bloodbath + 40% combat speed
I know everyone hates me but my Rebel gives me more damage and res / my craft gives me moree MF and is 50% / 114 flat / +2 skiills
if you want to lose about 1-2k damage but gain 5% PR rogue foresights are great but the crafts are better
dawn is 10x better than void ( as soon as you get endless + regeen for mana )

all in all great guide!
time to test another one!

this one can do it all though charm + farm
I ended with MF gear at 300MF / 7800 dex / 8k life/ 25k damage
105-130 charms

No one said Rebel is bad. Its pretty good but if you wanna be better and break the 10k dex wall you will need to craft.

Good to see you enjoy playing the build.
