Thanks to bouchbagette for all the theorycrafting work. We don't get too much of that these days. Great to look at.
1. We can get about 10k hps from dropping spirit with SH. The problem of course comes from when we want to switch back to SS or EF. We can't sustain mana at those levels of spirit. Sure we can reforge every boss but enchants and gems are pretty much fixed. We're going to have to settle on some happy medium of stats or else stick to SH or not SH or else play very suboptimally every time we respec.
2. I'm surprised to see people saying SH is the new EF, ie the must have talent. I was under the impression SoO were predominately spread fights and HR would be largely useless. Are you just using HR as a HP generator in these circumstances for LoD?
3. EF needs higher hps to compete with SS otherwise SS will always be the better options since it prevents damage.
