Why Vampires Bane?

    Is BSW better than Julianos? Would it be better to run juli and md with correct swords or bsw with md(precise and sharpened swords)?

    Why infused sword with fire enchant? Maybe it woucld be better to swap enchants on your swords? Infused+Spd enchant and precise+fire enchant?

    Shock/Fire on Infused main hand yields more deeps.

    I'm quite confused, because in attached video Fiery Weapon gives only 1.8k dps. https://youtu.be/_hf_xtsJ6BA?t=134

    Every time I tried Julianos VS BSW I had worse results.

    Infused on mainhand actually affects both of the enchants on your dual wield weapons so it is never a good idea to run spell damage on main hand.

    Fiery weapon does 1.8k DPS because I only have 4 weaves on the front bar. This is a very good DPS from an enchant to have gor onmy weaving 4 times.

     

    On thing I neglexted to test was an infused staff with a shock enchant on back bar. Perhaps that woulf be more dps than vMA. Going to try that today.

    So what were the results of BSW vs Julianos?  I've noticed that I had 60% uptime on berserker, hence infused sword main-hand boosts other enchants, I guess? If I switch to BSW, I lose a lot of dmg, because I haven't got infused md sword.

    Though I'm getting about 35k with julianos(julianos inferno staff backbar as well), granted I'm 500 cp, but I need high uptime on shadow blessing to get over 33k :/ I just wonder if the difference compared to bsw is big enough to farm swords again.

    Hey, so here is the deal:

    1. Infused affects off-bar enchants and in certain cases back bar ebchants.

    2. Julianos always did worse, but not by more thamk 1-1.5k so its a small difference.

    right now I don't have a moondancer sword (still grinding) but I do have two elegent swords as well and gold jewls, but I do have two one handed moondancer axe's as well.  would either option be ok.

    No...I would get Julianos instead and run Julianos/Moondancer with Julianos Swords

    Just got here from a friend.

    I've been using some frankenstein-ish magplar builds, 5x Juli (Frontbar, yeah I know), 5x MD, 1xIceheart, 1x Slimeclaw and Apprentice and a 2x Valkyn, 5x Juli and 4x IA Destro / Destro. I've been getting 35k-ish, solid 36k+ with Lightining staff (DW) and about 32k with Destro / Destro.. Dont know how to make Destro / Destro magplars work.

    One of my swords is infused and other is sharp (its from before HoTR) think I'll change it to precise and backbar fire precise vma. I'll try to change the build, its nice to see this old combination from Homestead days and a DW magplar. templars are like my life in this game.

    Well back to bag for MD Swords for ppl that main Sorc and will never try magplar.

    Hi Nos,  have you experimented on the new asylum destro yet? And is it a good substitute if you don't have maelstrom? I know you habe to slot force pulse or the other morph, but is it even worth using? TIA

    I was wondering what monster set you run for Dragon Bones DLC. I really like the rest of your guide, thank you so much for putting in the time!
