My main motivation for a 2. nirvana recast on my weapon was the 20 attack level stat. But as i runned out of raptures for more atempts to get it i was stuck on a -10% channeling stat.

On my last full gv and in some other situations i found it so freaking awesome that 10% made the difference between life and death. My gear is pretty much done expect sockets and if i go for the 20 attack level i would still have 31% channeling but 41% is really awesome.

Considering this cleric is used for rpk and still failing HARD to murder r9 archer due the leak of damage to burst them down , what would you go for, the attack level or the channeling ? (R9 is no option this build is set to be working on other charakters aswell for example wizzard due account stash trade and r9 is charakter bound wich is way to greedy from pwi for my personal tastes)



Current state of build :

I was also considering going narly full nirvana set expect the cape but i would surrender so much good stats for that 10 def level i really dont know if the set bonus and the slightly more hp are compensating this.

how would you proceed if that where your toon ?

    I think you're fine mostly. The -chan on the weapon is nice but you have decent -chan already so I would definitely recast to get the att level (hopefully some crit as well!)

    I like you gear and its all +10 as well so if it was me i'd just be thinking about getting good shards rather than having to replace 3 gears for a not huge benefit.

    Honestly, you should probably work on changing the shards in your armor to give you better survivability first.

    Nope, since +3 crit and +20 attk lvl are both unique adds. Would be nice, though :3

    Hi Decep! Haven't seen you in ages :D


    To the OP: I'd recast since I'd much prefer +20 attk level over -10 chan (esp when you'll still have -31 after a recast) and you can hopefully get something better on that other than +19 dex :p
    Also, not really worth it to get the +10 def level imo if you have the OVS boots and SoT cape. Also, and sadly, the TT99 niry boots refine identically to the OVS shoes (not sure why, but always bothered me)...

    @OP
    basiclly its either channeling fast and getting more hits/first hits in or a higher dmg right? Say if u can put in money to get a gold genie youd probably be able to buy yourself some dfense and 'runaway' times. If u can kite alot, which personally do u think u can afford to sacrifice?

    Its harder to equate -chan to attack levels when you're using attack skills as you do frequently get limited by cooldown times. But even using a very inaccurate example : cyclone 1 second cast so -10% chan = 0.1 seconds :: i.e more than 10 attacks needed to save enough time for the extra hit, compared to +20 attack level which is effectively an extra hit every 5 attacks. (again just a quick comparison and not meant to be accurate)

    I like the investing in a good genie idea so definitely look at that! I didnt tend to kite much during rpk though- this might be different for OP perhaps. b:puzzled

    channeling is a stronger bonus for EPs in nearly every situation, possible exception of solo pvp.
