Hm amulets and rings require spirit.
as a soldier i find myself not able to use +damage rings cuz they require too much spirit.

i cant use rings and amulet now. is this intended?
i dont need spirit for any other benefits.

Spirit is awesome for Occultist even now. If you choose to stack elemental damage as ranged occultist, investing in spirit really pays off. So far I've tried lightning damage and fire damage. Both work fine, but currently I'm focusing on fire cause I found this awesome pistol:

Spirit DOES increase elemental damage directly.

@doublebuck It also helps that you have some incredible gear to back you up with your high spirit. How much of your physique and cunning is actually from leveling stats?

Spirit adds regen and damage to elemental effects, the only one Occult has is the sigil of ...whatever and the witchfire buff... and even then, its not an amazing amount of damage..
well actually that is what my occultist is using so that is what i was thinking of when i wrote that response. idk i guess it just depends on the variation of your build, but you also have to keep in mind there are 2 classes not even in alpha so I really doubt that spirit will be useless

Granted, I have decent gear. Here's the breakdown:

Cunning: +60, +11%
Physique: +62, +11%

Everything else from masteries + spent attribute points.

If you guys looked in the alpha section at the known bugs you would know the spirit isn't fully functional yet.

There is no sticky page or colelction of patch info anywhere. The forums are chaos, there is no organization, it's near impossible to follow any information whatsoever.
