hitting 50 dr with a ghost

so i'm a bit confused about this. i'm going with the physical damage set up from tienje's guide, so the only sources of DR that i have are circlet sockets, enigma, and fade. i only have a 1os circlet, so if i ber it with the suggested charms, i barely get 50% dr (maxing fade and accounting for +skills - i have +14 with 3 shadow gcs, so lvl 34 fade + enigma + ber'd circlet = 50). but in his guide, he suggests 2 shadow gcs with the rest max/ar/life scs. i don't see how he has sufficient dr (or resists for that matter) since he jah's his circlet. am i missing something?

It should not be that hard to hit 50% dr with a ghost in fact you should have more +skills to hit 50% dr with ghost. Circ would pretty much be the way to go for fcr and all them good mods (visionary if you can).

Re: hitting 50 dr with a ghost

really? so i'm going physical, and my current set up is (following the tienje guide):
2/20 Rare Circlet (with res all, dex, and one socket)
Highlords
Runic Talon Fury [primary]
Suwayyah Chaos [secondary]
Enigma
Trang’s Gloves
Spider Sash
10 FCR/Str/Dex Ring
Raven Frost
Eth Sandstorm Treks
Sin Torch and Anni
2 FHR Shadow GC’s
1 plain shadow GC
plus charms

which adds up to +14 with BO from CTA. definitely not enough +skills. Even if i used 9 gcs, i'd still only get +20, which is insufficient to get 50 dr with max fade and just dr from enigma o_O

Re: hitting 50 dr with a ghost

I assume that you have no fade staffmods on the claws, so if you cast from the CtA Switch:

2 Circlet
1 Highlords
2 Enigma
1 Arachnid Mesh
4 Sin Torch and Anni
2 FHR Shadow GC’s
1 plain shadow GC

1 CtA
1 Lidless (2 Spirit if you have the strength)
1 BO

= 16
+20 Fade
+8 Enigma
= 44%DR

With 6 more GCs = 50%DR

If you cast from two +3 Fade claws you get to 48%DR, only needing two skillers. Or you need a Ber in the circlet.

Either Ber the circlet or get fade on claws. My claws have +5 fade in total and I reach 50%DR with 4 skillers + enigma.

50 dr isnt a magic number.You can get by with lower.But if u want it...and not using a full grand charms build , you have to ber the circlet.
