You're forgetting the curse duration. With a lvl 20 Fade curses get reduced quite alot.Kitriara said:This has been a real tough one for me, too. I'm working up a Tiger Strike/Dragon Tail build... on top of that, I'm still debating C/C or C/S! There is a lot of good advice in this thread however.
It seems Fade would work well with C/C since the res makes up for res you could get on a shield... also, I play HC and it requires a LOT of dex to get good block with shields at high levels, even ones with 75% base block! Meanwhile 10 points in claw blocking can give you a constant 50%.
20% physical damage reduction aint too shabby either for a meleer... its really a tough call, since its easier to find IAS than PDR on gear.
I hope this thread continues!
