To add to fumbles,
Go for Spiked or Bone Shield abandoned craft. Can get +2 all skills, or I think +3 Druid? On top of up to 10% DR, Six sockets, flat dr, and easy to equip with the shields only requiring dexterity to wear. Edit: and up to 2% block
Also, chuck, no offense, I appreciate the work you put into your guides and such, but writing basically the most common gear for any WDM build and claiming it as your own.. Hm. That gear for trap rats that he's written has basically been the baseline gear for many many years, and across to many other Melee/WDM chars.
Also also, feels, energy doesn't boost rainbow damage to weapon. It only boosts spell damage or procs tbat deal spell damage (I.e. Maybe you can create an energy based flamefront on striking fire spell trap rat? Or at least an optional setup for it so less crying happens.)
Lastly, possess on Kali gloves is like a two second duration with a 10? Second spell timer. Not efficient at all and its charge based.
