Hey Dru, do you feel the physical resist from Lore gloves with Sprit boots makes a huge difference? I'm looking to optimize and I've reached the conclusion the best piece for gloves (and possibly boots as well) is a solid craft with -25% cold (15 from gloves, 5 from sacred craft, another 5 from sacred blessing) and if I get lucky, I could also get +2 skills on it and up to +30% cold damage and even +30 spell focus, but all four seem exceedingly unlikely. Nonetheless , for pierce cap, it seems like a tantalizing alternative! And there will be plenty of room to MO an additional 10% cold and 30 spell focus. And if I were so lucky, maybe I could repeat that success with some boots as well. However .... The only area I am truly lacking in happens to be physical resist making some uber levels a game of dodge ball, hence my question. I guess I'm asking specifically for labs since I haven't really run then much yet .

sorry for my completely late responses , I have been away and pcless for months and I am barely returning as we speak. If you do come across this message i do send my sincere regards for you wasting a laz trophy frag on the set as the set isnt worth that much :( . I really did mean to update my mid game gear to crafted gear last season , but as you are now aware , I was PCless. My pc broke and I had to send it in for repairs so I was unable to rework the guide or make any edits until now. This season will be the season i change and update everything to its newest content. I am glad you found workarounds for mid game gear , maybe we can discuss in private more detail on what you used possibly. As for the Lorekeepers and spirit walker boots making a huge impact on your endgame output is not worth HEAVY investment , unless you had the currency for it . like I said I will be changing everything and updating this upcoming season . The only good thing about the spirit walkers is mainly for the spell focus tbh other than that you can get the pierce from crafted boots . - I am looking forward toward your response , sincerely Dru.

I'm more than sure - ppl have to write totally new guides for S2.0. Different point distribution trees, new and revamped skills , whatever.
