Any time I switch try harbinger I lose all my sustain. As I understand the cold damage from my honorific crystal sword wont proc the life on attack. What is the best way around this? Is there a way to make the sword proc my life on attack?


Your Honorific Crystal Sword does proc Life on Attack. Harbinger's birds that fly out do not proc Life on Attack though, they would require Life on Striking.

Your main source of Life on Attack is the 300 that is in your weapon, which works with Twisted Claw very well (only the initial hit and not the tornados). Your main source of Life Regen is from Symbiosis and the passive regen increase that Harvesters grant it. Those two sources are more than enough to stay alive. If you are dying, it is because of lacking other defenses or because you are playing poorly. Eventually you can also get Life Spark on Melee Attack from Hellfire Plate which is a heal for a percentage of your max life.

I must be playing badly then as whenever I cast harbinger I do not gain any life back on the initial hit. I have 300 life on attack on my sword and a bit of % leech from elsewhere. Twisted Claw or just a normal auto attack will leech life but not harbinger. I am almost 115 now so symbiosis is close anyways.

Leech does not work at all for this build, so that stat doesn't help. Harbinger doesn't really hit fast enough to proc much LoA so yes, you will want to Twisted Claw for best sustain.

All working as expected.

Cold damage doesn't use % life leech.
Harbinger doesn't use life on melee attack because warp strikes don't count as a melee attack.

Alright. I will just wait and see what happens at 115 with Symbiosis. I am still missing Erawan so I will make that tonight and see if it makes a difference although I am not sure it will as I am already at 40+ phys res.

Maybe I just keep using Twisted Claw until I get more block chance. Thanks for the info.

EDIT -- are you sure on this? I thought the initial hit of Harbinger still counted, it has Attack Rating and everything.

Holy crap this build is even more powerful in 2.0. I swear it was never this easy in 1.x. I'm breezing through all ubers so far at lvl 115 with a couple RW and some TU 3 equipment lmao.
