I need help to understand new One with the Light
Since weeks i'm preparing to change my build from Consecrated Strikes into One with the Light, since my Hero Fantasy is closer to it. Problem is that i do not understand new gearing policy after changes with AP and SP and i dont know what should be better.
Many people tried to help me during last weeks, but each of them have diffrent view about gearing policy. Their suggestions:
- STR primary stat with STR + AP gear
- STR primary stat with STR + INT + SP gear
- STR primary stat with INT + SP gear
- INT primary stat with INT + SP gear
Why such diffrence about gear?
They discuss between profits from Retribution 5-tier 4-set bonus with Mental Quickness compared to raw SP pumpers, since AP doesn't really improve weapon damage done on that spec by physical damage reduction, so only SP can really improve weapon damage done. Weapon damage is important to improve Crusader Strike, Divine Storm and SoR + JoR damage done.
Can you help me understand which choice should be the best and explain why?
@NazethNecrotyr When you look at your damage meter you will see 2 listing for both Divine Storm and Crusader Strike. There will be the physical damage portion which hits like a wet paper bag and then there's the purely holy damage part that will say "Divine Stom (One With The Light). The majority of your damage will come from the spell damage portion of these melee attacks which is why it makes sense to push sp gear. I believe the BiS weapon is twinblade with full sp gear. You can run ret pally or shammy hybrid gear but then you need the extra talent points into the enhancement shaman tree to increase your sp scaling. Needless to say... you have options with this LRE. But if you're going to use a traditional ret pally combat rotation you will probably benefit from int/sp gear because the physical damage is almost non existant.
@NazethNecrotyr Also, your weapon base damage is important. But attack power is not. That's why you want a twinblade or trollbane for the increased base damage instead of using a Nexus Key staff
