I just got a pretty average roll on Skylord. tooltip goes from (max):
Sword/Shield: 98,576 (28% hit chance)
Skylord: 80,860 (33% hit chance)
Sword/Shield: 37,585 (95% hit chance)
Skylord: 41,729 (95% hit chance)
Need to swap some of my other jewels to get 48% more attack speed.
I guess I'm about to find out if the 75% increased radius is worth it.
Hope you don't mind me asking, but what's your verdict so far?
The 75% increased AoE helps with clear speed, for sure. If you're using TU's, it's an upgrade. If you've found yourself a Astral Blade or Aeterna, you're not going to have as much DPS with Skylord (with my current setup, at least, can't speak for everyone. And again I got an "ok/average" roll; a "good" roll it might be a lot different). So for single target, it's not as good. But for farming; sure Skylord is great
. I personally swap between both (Skylord for groups and screen clearing; then, swap to 1h/shield for boss). I can blaze thru Fautz with Skylord in <10 minutes. Otherwise its more like ~15 minutes. The extra sockets in 1h/shield are versatile, and you don't have those with Skylord. If I get a better shield along with one of those swords, it's would be a no brainer against Skylord.. but a GOOD shield is expensive right now, and haven't had any luck with drops in that area. Once I get a Shamanka, I'll just have to equip for the specific task.
