Test for yourself in Trixion but yes the “end game” Korea is that cursed doll will give you the largest dps boost however it comes with a negative too which is why most either just run grudge and hit master or keen blunt. I personally took hit master over cursed doll as well.
first of all if you use final strike you already have alot of crit damage on your spells which makes other sources of crit damage (like keen blunt) less effective than they are to start with, diminishing returns basically and although i have not done the math i am very positive it wont be able to outperform either cursed doll or hitmaster in your setup with final strike
other than that you can definitely run hit master since all your relevant spells do not have positionals, the benefit of cursed doll is that it buffs your awakening damage too which hit master does not, but it also gives you the heal reduction so i would generally prefer hit master over cursed doll in your case, besides that cursed doll loses effectiveness on its attack power buff if used with adrenaline since adrenaline also gives atk power and they stack additively so on normal spells your damage gain with hit master would actually be bigger than cursed doll in this build
Becouse if you want run cast reflux your main stat is crit …On maxroll is i guess swiftness… But people running swiftness with different spells for instacast.
Just try it in trixion. Set you need is nightmare.
If you run full crit with good quality you have 60% critrate from stat… Than you looking for synergys…Gunslinger/deadeye/arcanist for 10% constant critrate or some glaivier/wardencer/striker
for any spell that doesnt have final strike:
1.855 / 1.856
if he wants to use final strike tripods he will 100% deal more damage with adrenaline over cursed doll, with using the other tripods over final strike i am sure you can hit equal or higher damage by running cursed doll over adrenaline, also trixion tests arent descriptive if you dont record them or at least do tests of a high sample size since the crit rate you will actually have during the run doesnt reflect the damage potential of the build if you get outliers
for instance when i did a trixion test just now with the final strike build with adren i got 3.98m dps and with cursed doll replacement i got 3.57m, after putting in magick amp tripods over final strike (or their equivalent like enhanced strike on eso / frosts call) with cursed doll build i got 3.69m dps, stats were 1700 crit, 540 swift, everything else base from what i have from potions / books, LoS cards, nightmare set
No he wil not doing more damage… Stop be like pepega. More crit rate less damage…with adrenaline you are overcrited imagine party synergy…For what you need 85 crit with party syn or 93% crit with party syn? Oh one white meteor is end of the world?
Play adrenaline if you want …If you like big numbers play cursed doll… Play whatever you want … I dont accept adrenaline or precise dagger reflux in party becouse those guys have no idea what they do…
adrenaline is literally still stronger than cursed doll even with perma 10% crit synergy (85% crit rate equivalent) when using final strike tripods, both by math as well as in a repeated trixion test, you are coming up with random results that you cannot back
just check loawa for kr reflux sorcs, they all use adrenaline and alot of them even on lvl 3, putting something like hitmaster on lvl 2 in the 5x3+2, you think they also have no idea what they are doing?
I did not do any math or testing or anything, but been searching and reading here and reddit.
It does seem player recommend adrenaline over CD.
Mostly, player state that, how multiplication and addition modifier works. Grudge, Hit master, all our attacks, all gives out multiplication and that ups the 6% in adrenaline + my damage by a lot. Having CD doesn’t do much at all. CD become pointless.
Than player are talking about CD vs HM. Again, HM is better as well.
KB gives bad return since I am using final strike already. So, it is not ideal
I like the fact that I don’t need CD. Do not want the -20% healing
