One question though. Why are you using Unchained might gloves when you dont even use blade arc? Is it the entrapment decrease? Im a complete noob
Thanks!

Current gloves are better than any others due to:
flat physical damage which is getting converted to vitality;
trap resist;
pierce resist.

Other gloves are worse either damage-wise or don't cover my pierce resistance. And that trap res is really helpful too.

Is there any gear you would change if you had it?

Why is Manticore devotion in this build? Only for ability proc?

It's in 90% of builds because it's the only freely available flat resist reduction to many builds. Yes the nodes are often wasted but resist reduction is that important.

Hi all. I'm usually lurking but loved this build and had a question.
The intro says that cadence is fully converted to vitality.
The conversions I see come from both edges of death, both haunted steels, the blood knight's pendant and harbinger of souls.
I don't know what the conversion ranges for the swords and pendant are but even with the assumption of 20% on each I can still only account for:
(20+8)+(20+8)+20+9=85%.

Where does the remainder of the conversion to vitality come from?

Thanks!

I should say it's "almost" fully converted.
Yes, some physical damage remains unconverted anyway, this is how partial conversion work.
34% swords, 20% components, 12% pendant, 15% Harbinger = 81% in best case.
But this build have additional sources of flat vitality damage too, so remaining physical damage is negligible. Here's the sheet of weapon damage in this build:



In fact you'll have near 85k vitality damage and 4k physical damage on Cadence 3rd hit. So, remaining physical damage is near 4% of total damage and thus can be ignored.

Thanks for the fast response!
Love the build, glad I'm not doing it wrong
I had to replace cursebearer with deathlord's band and the belt with boneweave girdle and it still plays exceptionally well.

Well, I recommend to find any Cursebearer - default, empowered or mythical, and equip it instead of deathlord's band. Cursebearer's RR proc working in huge AOE is magnificent and it supresses enemy regeneration too. Works well both in campaign and Crucible.
Hope you'll enjoy this build
