Yea I was about to do the same.
My main engravings are mayhem/masters tenacity (legendary) so the logical stone to 7/9 or 9/7 would be a cursed doll/raid captain stone since both are viable.
Another other stone I’d have to get another legendary engraving like keenblunt instead of master’s tenacity but if the difference is like 1% between raid captain/cursed doll/master’s tenacity then I will stick to raid captain +2
I mean the downside for cursed doll is 25%- healing fixed regardless of level.So it doesn’t matter if it’s level 1/2/3 either way you’re still taking cursed doll.(be it 2/3 depending what kinda stone you get)
Yeah, but the dmg bonus is bigger, so the upside/downside ratio is better with it on lvl 3
In this game, it’s pointless to think in absolute terms, everything is relative and has meaning only when taken into consideration against the other
For example, why not ambush master which gives 25% dmg instead of 16% only? Because it’s back-attack reliant, and the downside depends on how reliably you can back-attack on that class. So there’s a hidden % number in that equation which depends on how good you can find the back-attacks to take into consideration.
So again, until you compare pros and cons you got no actionable intel
I think almost everything is better than Cursed doll on 2 on all classes except on mayhem zerk, but I’m not sure for Mayhem Zerk either.
Oh yeah no youre right in principle, its just that, unless youre someone who got extremely lucky early on with a god stone, whether your items ultimately cost 25k or 50k on a then perfect and forever-finished character, really wont make a difference anymore
It won’t from that perspective, but from today’s perspective it makes all the difference.
The money you put into that right now could have been used to multiply it by for example, flipping the market or saving the gold for something else which would help your progression even more (such as honing or gems or I don’t know, depends on your situation)
While you still have some control over your future, it does matter. Only afterwards it doesn’t matter. Can’t change the past.
Oh yeah sure, i was just going off the assumption of raid captain being slightly suboptimal (idk what the reality is, i also didnt read all the responses in the post), and choosing the cheaper variant over the perfected one, when 5x3+2 should be the final setup you ever buy for your character, just found that to be humorous
for anything but that, or whatever you know you will hold on to for quite a while, you should choose whatever is the most cost efficient of course
