Remember that a large part of what makes Cadence builds good is Deadly Momentum. The higher your piercing ratio is, the more of the flat physical damage bonus on Deadly Momentum gets converted.

I know that, but making sinister 2H ranged weapon even if you get 100% to pierce conversion and same atc speed like silverbolt will make you lose +2 to all skills. You will probably have more dps but you will be so stretched on skill points that it will be hard to survive much less to be efficient. Tho it would probably lower your dummy kill time.

1.0.0.7 CHANGES TO THIS BUILD


Like all previous upgrades this one also was not favorable for blademasters. Everything that hit DW blademasters is hitting this build also due to being it ranged counterpart. Belgotians carnage flat pierce dmg got nerfed, blades of wrath got nerfed, nights chill got nerfed, deadly momentum got nerfed.

But we got a slight upgrade also, cunning received slight increase in % dmg and a really small increase in OA bust (I would like someone to confirm this, Im not 100% sure but it seams like this, also it seams that phys got slight increase in DA bust). So now more than ever high cunning investments are paying off.

Bottom line for 1.0.0.7 is slight decrease in dps, slight decrease in AOE, slight increase in OA/DA, noting significant.

Here is the pictures how this build looks like in 1.0.0.7, cadence dmg:



Happy holidays

I've actually been thinking of doing a very similar build but instead of a 2H ranged, i'm gonna to use a Gun + Shield.

Yeah, you read that right. I was thinking of using Deathdealer Sidearm and Siegebreaker. I guess the main issue is that it only converts 30% physical to pierce. Makes me wish they would make a ranged equivalent of Blessed Whetstone.

That would be nice, or just to delete sword requirements for blades of nadaan.

Here 0 Physique/Spirit

Looks like I found a build to use some of the ranged weapons I have... this should be fun.
