I’m not certain who needs to chill here.
Hm, good that you know everything already. Carry on then.
No i don’t. Levsky provided some very solid maths about the Frost-Bound hammer, which i didn’t know was that powerful, so this hammer earned the top spot for pure tanking. I’ve also changed some rankings of weapons and affixes after discussions with Kahleon and Shalrys. DumbOx provided insights on the portion of the overall aggro provided by selfhealing which i didn’t know about being so low. I learned things. So nope, no sarcasm needed.
and was offering you endgame tested information for consideration.
Nope you were not offering anything. I don’t see anything besides a claim that hammer mainhand isn’t needed nor Pulverise, which makes you oneshottable even under Thick Skin on way too many circumstances.
The base sustain rotation doesn’t change; only a single passive and your actives.
The base rotation ? So now you were grabbing hammer as offhand instead ?
What’s the point of making yourself 35% more vulnerable to derps without Pulverise, and to exchange a selfhealing source (Paradoxical Restoration) for another (Percussive Maintenance) just to get Potency Enigma procs once in a blue moon ? You can ask DumbOx how high of an uptime that enigma is at, he’ll answer to you he was getting 5-6% uptime in whole dungeon runs, and that was with Enigmatic Apparatus. If you ever manage to get more than 4% average uptime with the Otherwordly, consider yourself up to play lottery. So yeah, if you prefer, keep downgrading yourself in favour of a close to non-existant group buffs. So far, until your provide us so more proof (claiming that you’re sitting in filth under Immutable isn’t very challenging, sorry, anybody can do that), your setup just requires more gear to pull out the same performance a hammer/chaos build can do. If you want to contribute, it’ll be accurate to provide some in-depth reasoning and/or videos or whatever else, otherwise just don’t be surprised if people don’t blindly trust your advises. I’ve personally tested your variant a long time ago, as well as many other tanks out there, and the conclusions are the same, it was just fun to play before E5, after that, you needed either some solid gear or a healer, no possibility in undergearing anything.
Editorializing, you seriously need to chill out and quit presuming your delusions of self-importance are shared. That’s how you turn a good-faith gesture into a middle finger.
I don’t care about your susceptibility issues. While i know i sound condescending at times, it is me being direct and logical. In any case, there’s no need of any agressivity on this thread (or on this forums ever), so please bring it away forever.
