does weapon rend really increase hellflame damage by that much?
I'm not sure about the exact percentage boost, but you can treat Hell Flame just like other Sword skills, so maybe a +200% damage ?
and, i like musi more cuz requiem+hellflame+curse is not dispellable by HG, u HAVE to have a salv, and musi has a salv too
Well, all I want to say is that Requiem + Hell Flame + Curse is a difficult combo to use in reality, you need 4 activations for it, which is often an unrealistic target. Moreover, in terms of damage, I think a BowM can snipe one target even better than Requiem + Curse of String.
with swordM, his main purpose will only to spam darkseed, which makes him rather useless, i'd rather have a semi tanky D sword merc in front line, and when he's about to die, i can double deadly strike.
No. He can use an uber Flame Sword to front-spike, Guard Dispel to help control or Chaos Edge to put some stun pressure. Well, you get the picture.
with staffM... staffM sucks
It's okay if you don't like StaffM, but I believe they're one of the better mains in the game.
with the double bow thing, signets won't affect me much cuz it will only reduce my physical snipe, and i can still HG it. i still have hellflame+curse of the strings
Tho, ody might be useful cuz shieldbash+curse of the strings + double bow snipe hurts lol
Shield Bash is nice to keep a merc from guarding, however Def
reduction doesn't work so well in PvP.
