I wonder about the point of Ring of the Black Matriach. The proc and none of stats bonuses benefit you except for the attack speed.

Well that sucks, I didn't realize all flat RR's didn't stack. That makes me sad. BSoD has nice chaos res and lifesteal so I'll probably keep that. Wind Devil is still great for proccing devotions so maybe I can use it for something else. Would you recommend ditching Rhowan's Crown entirely?

Primal Strike is a 3-point investment for a stun, aoe and devotion trigger. With all the plus skills on my equipment, it does a fair chunk of damage. What about points in Markovian's Advantage or Fighting Spirit for DA shred or + OA?

And thanks for the response!
Personally I would rather keep R crown and ditch other sources, switched BSoD to BoM to up my OA and get some + to useful skills.
WD is trash for procing devotions ST is much better option imho.
I know about PS but still its 3 points...
If you already have point in Blindside it doesn't stack with markovinas DA shred, pick one.
Fighting spirit is ok but not reliable cuz limited up time.
Zolhan technique on other hand is defensively good for shredding enemies atc speed but you would have to up it to 100% weapon dmg...

This also, some nice Cronlys ring would be much better.

Edit: also component in gloves...

Good point, I never stopped to realize how little physical damage I actually do. Went to ol' Cronley's and he dropped me a Wanderers of Squalls, not the best but still better than the Matriarch. Will keep farming, MI's are definitely the most work to get something useful.

Working on farming mats for another BoM, they ain't cheap and it's a total crapshoot on the +skills. Which component would you recommend for gloves?

Something to improve your resistances, like molten skin or if you dont need that go for attack speed with CW.

I'd really use the Ultos axe. Don't be fooled by paper dps. It's the electrical damage on Reaver that makes it seem high on papaper.

Don't have acess to mine i have finished yesterday, will post it later. I have capped resistance / I have buffed (w/o proc 2550 OA / 2200 DA) and IAS at 15X (my main concern). I have also capped my resistance without all augment / materia, so i set materia with more resist on it i don't need cause there is no materia i can use to up my dps (in belt for example).

But some points :
- devotion >> not pick spear is bad for me. I still think tempest is not worth. I have picked manticore for poison resist and to be able to pick BoM.
- skill

>> Brute force is not worth more than 1 points + skills
>> Max Wendigo, so cheated skill imo and great for crucible or boss
>> Don't understand why PS + Savagery ...
>> Raging tempest replace by manticore
>> Tenacity of the Boar is to set at 12 imo and 11 for Storm touched (more points doesnt fit the invested points)
>> HEart of the Wild at 10, not more imo.

>> For soldier i still don't know if i invest some points into FS or Zolhan ... seems ZOLHAN not bad at all for Jov, need to try it.
>> More points in Menhir Will so great skill imo.

- stuff
>> i go for 2 crownley for Pierce resist and IAS.
>> i go for ulzuin head for %red resist
>> i go for MI boots and legs to cover resist

Honest question here.
I've done some testing on all my builds with post-nerf Falcon Swoop

The only builds that were using it nicely were either, physical, pierce.

Even on high physical conversion builds i noticed there were other much better options

Is it still the go to devotion for you guys?

--------------
Also, i tested post buff Tsunami. The skill doesn't seem like a good LMB devotion, anyone think the new Tsunami is worth it?



P.S

OP, your devotion setup's main focus is Electrocute damage.

If Lightning is to be your focus then i'd switch the weapon to Ultos MH like fluff fluff suggested

I think the way to go is ultos weapon, don't set now if Ulzuin hat is better than Ultos, need more test.

Tested with Ulzuin hat on this build.
The performance was comparable. I switched to Ultos because of style
