Gotcha, thank you! I knew there was a reason, I'm just a casual and didn't see it

Who said that Tactician can't complete with Witchblade or Death Knight in terms of damage and clean times?
Today's update shows the Forcewave Tactician's true power.
Meet Gwynevere, the Titan.

Smashes the Crucible in 10 minutes.

People who think RR is the single most important stat of all lol. They forgot the shitton of flat damage you get from Steel Resolve and Arcane Empowerment then crits from Deadly Aim. Though I'm surprised you didn't get Arcane Empowerment considering the amount of conversion you have. Blade Arc looks sweet tho.

Also, I bet Commando can do the same thing too

It is one of the best ways to increase damage. And Death Knight and Witchblade can also get a ton of flat damage through conversion, pretty much have the same amount or probably even more. Well, not so much Death Knight, but Witchblade can get a lot from Second Rite.

Not saying Tactician is a bad choice because it's not, it's still really strong. But after playing all three, Death Knight and Witchblade hit harder while being just as sturdy.

After endless attempts in Crucible I realized that capped Blade Arc gives much better damage output and clear times than Arcane Empowerment. 564% WD on 12 targets with 70% additional crit damage - hell yes!
Arcane Empowerment simply can't complete with it, I tried them both.
If I could have both Arcane Empowerment and Blade Arc! But between them, I choose Blade Arc.

Existing characters complete under 12 minutes, not 10.
Some day I'll respec into Occultist instead of Tactician to check this out

Theorycrafting.
Is dropping the Judicator's Signets (aka 350 OA and 150 DA) worth the 14% total damage increase and 10% RR? I think yes, but doubting

You'll never know until you test it but I vote on judicators. I just can't stand looking at 2.5k OA.

I did a quick test: damage difference is almost 0, but now it's unsafe to play. Judicators are bis.
