Postby Rena » Tue Oct 07, 2008 6:18 pm

But playin around with talents i found

To be good for tps. has 2/5 AD :\ i could take out 2/5 and 3/3 imp HoJ into kings if i wanted. But is 2/5 even worth it? or is 3/3 Crusade worth getting?

Short answer: Take it 5/5

Long answer : There is no long answer: take it 5/5

But seriously, as opposed to before where there was potentially different and/or interesting alternatives, you really arn't sacrificing much to pick up a very strong survivability boost for the worst case scenarios. Pair it up with Divine Protection at low health and you have insane damage reduction.

so basically the survivability of AD is much more worth it than 3/3 Crusade...i was just tryin to maximize tps. if possible

Nothing wrong is maxing tps, but currently on beta I can hold aggro vs. most everything relatively easily.

Whether that trend continues is another story all together but for the moment threat is the least of our concerns.

yeah, seems like tanking has come down more to maximising survival rather than tps

The eternal debate.

I wish the combat log would reflect when it actually reduced damage so it can be tracked for hard data.

I wish it resurectted dead critters when it procced. And then those dead critters had golden wings and threw Avenger's shield at other critters.

But here is my problem, there is no way that I see that I can pick up AD at 70 without sacrificing at least 1 point of AD.

Here is my build at the moment.

With 4 points intentionally left open for changes.

The problem with AD is you typically only will need the extra effective health in encounters where it often provides no effective health.

If you're having trouble fitting it in, don't feel too badly about skipping it. Just keep in mind how much easier it's going to be to maintain threat before you go scooping up lots of threat talents.

Well really, in my 70 build, I don't pick up alot of extraneous threat talents, unless you consider Touched by the Light and 1/2 Improved Judgements to be extra.

just take your points out of Shield of the Templar till you are level 75 and can make use of all the spells listed. Bam you have room for AD well most of it.
