This question is regarding my multishot bowazon in the untwinked 99er challenge; and would like some help in making up my mind for the final respec. The more I run CS, the more I realize bowazons are not meant for higher /p settings, and especially not for picking out boss packs. So, I'm hoping to switch over to p1/7 or p3/7 runs ASAP; but Big D is difficult atm with only 800~ vit. I only have 1 respec left, so I want to hear some opinions about possible stat/gear setups before I make my decision. Thing to note: - No CtA. - p1/7 or p3/7 CS runs. - Though SC, let's pretend this is HC because deaths at higher lvl is too costly. - no Strafe to proc CB/Amp. - enough charms for either max dmg or life/resists. Don't have godly charms to have both at once. =P Current Gear Setup: Code: +2 ama/20 all res/30 frw Tiara Fortitude Razortail LoH War Travs Ravenfrost 3 ml/3 ll/stats Blood ring Rare Ammy with random stats (Will use Cat's eye when it drops) Shadowbow Faith Merc Setup: Code: Reapers Stone Vamp Gaze First question: Do I focus on gearing myself or gearing merc for taking down Big D? I've been quite set on gearing myself with Fleshripper/SS to take down Big D for a while, but am now wondering if it's even worth it. Could the merc take down Big D on /p7 relatively fast with a different setup? If so, I wouldn't have to worry about higher vit and can focus on clearing CS as a glass cannon build. This would also let me keep Harmony on switch, and give Fana aura to merc. Assuming no, I definitely need higher vit for Big D. The question is then, how much? I'm debating between 75% block (222 dex, 200+ vit) and 50% block (153 dex, 300+ vit). With the option to pump Dodge to 50%, though, I'm leaning towards 50% block with higher Vit. So while playing with the above numbers I couldn't help but wonder, how much damage output would I be losing with the lower dex setup? With so much bonus %ed from gear and aura (300%ed from Fort, 350%ed to Demons from LoH, 237% from lvl12 Fana, 260%ed from Might), my initial take is that losing 150~250 dex wouldn't mean THAT much. Could someone provide me with the actual math for damage calculation? It'd be very so much appreciated. =P Any other suggestions are also welcome.
