Grief question for a smiter: grief pb vs grief ba

well I got a grief pb right now but when I look at the dex requirements it makes me go sad as I dont want to spend that much dex just to wear it.

What is the amount of ias ill need for hitting the last breakpoint with grief ba 35% ias.

and is there a way to get your dex to 136 in a pure vit build? or do I have to spend some points in dex in the end?

Before I got a torch for my pally I used (lol) +dex charms to fill the big gap needed to get to 136. I still have far too much dex than I need at level **, despite it only being 136.

You'd need a total of 55% IAS across all of your gear to reach a 6-frame Smite with level 20 Fanaticism, or 50% IAS with level 27+ Fanaticism, using a Berserker Axe. If the Grief makes up 35% of this, then you need 15-20% more somewhere.

As a Smiter you probably should be investing those few points in Dex anyway to get to max block, it would be foolish not to, what with max Holy Shield and all. Max block definately makes up for the small loss of life of pure vita.

Just in case you need to get the first hack in with charge, Zerker has a greater range than phase blade, so you more or less got a advantage ifyou charge with zerker.

add to that you need the range from zerker to hit barbs that try staying out of smite range
