I came back after several years and dusted off my old shade. It’s a pretty complete 220/30/70 with almost all the endgame stuff. Used to solo the bird boss in Alb no problem.
But now I found the new DEFLECT stat and not sure how to handle it. So I’d like to ask you guys a few specific questions about that, mostly relevant to endgame soloing.
If all this has been answered in other topics, I’m sorry I couldn’t find the answers I need. If I missed something post a link to that topic please.
- Should I even bother with deflect? At the moment it’s 1443. How much benefit would I get from maxing it, seeing how I would have to reset some other skills and reduce them to get the IP.
- I’ve got 2725 run speed, could I cut some IP away from there? I heard somewhere that your rs doesn’t get faster past the 2k mark.
- My concealment is 3k. Could I cut down on that and still be able to use smoke bomb in endgame encounters or sneak past mobs in Albe for example?
- Perception 1674 and first aid 1152. Should I have that? First aid is handy when you pop a stim while soloing but is maxing deflect instead a greater benefit?
I would appreciate any ideas and comments, please.
