Quick update.

So i actually listened what people said a few days ago - in the end i decided your ring was a great match for my build, and also i tried out honor, as well as i decided to throw away the regen as well since leech is enough even for supers after testing. Regen still so strong though, might not have been the best idea to replace that with a lil more whatever.

The ring was just for overcap resistances, i got around 30-60% overcap on all resistances now on my actual char without pots, effectively removing all the biggest dangers even though it doesn't add anything special as far as sheet epeen goes.

Honor is honestly great, it's a nice aoe abilility. I can definitely see this one pulling best clear times for general content. I find it ultimately superflous as everything i start attacking just drops, and i am using absolution again, but i cannot deny that it's great and even for single target it is around 17% increase over time(not mentioning bursts vs groups). However absolution is godmode - particularly when you need that performance. You can keep both though, and swap them any time they don't add resistances or other essential stats outside the same identical skills.

So yea, it turned out pretty good.

Ravager of minds fight for example took 1½-2 min facetank with no consumerables potions etc. I could literally just see his bar moving rather fast down, then he started leeching when i stopped paying attention to the fight near the end so he lived a little longer from that.

Some things are different with my actual gears, i got 1% more block chance and some more oa and different resistances which makes my choices fit, and in game i also use sanctified bone for same reason, but you can't see that on calc.

PS: retal works just fine for lvling, i was farming ultimate on lvl 100, even beast nemesis facetank, with mostly self-found lvl 60-85 gear coz i was too lazy to make a big rearrangement. Died sometimes, but was fine, only really when i was 20-30 below resistance cap. Kinda slow though with low lvl gear. Personally i transitioned to fervor on 65. Get lots of cheap damage from devotions and so many epics drops it's crazy and some of them will be for retal.

What cult is best for leveling as retaliation, d'you think?

We'll see. Like I said this build was very weak compared to other retals. After a lot of feedback Z tweaked the mods and some buffs on the set itse;f and was very close to the sweet spot. then global pierce to phys put it into overdrive.


It is now getting nerfed gear wise across the board. Hopefully it will rolle it back to the sweet spot and not before

What a beast!
Fantastic build as always Fluff.

I'm steering clear of the Warlord hype train at the moment & juggling around with this Acid Retal Dervish: https://www.grimtools.com/calc/YZe093pV

Not finished as a work in progress. If you can please provide some feedback it would be appreciated. Rings & pants are farmable (hopefully attain some decent roles).

Cheers,
