Considering dropping bushido for resist, any down side?

    The only thing I use bushido for against spell casting mobs, like slasher, is for confidence on my wraith thrower. Any downside to stoning it off for resist?

    Well I would say evade and momentum strike but if your not using them then its probably not going to be a huge issue unless it effects your 300 points for mana reduction.

    Thanks Mirt, forgot about that. Does evade work with ranged weapons on my thrower?

    It should its supposed to prevent anything for a short time. I love using it with feint weapons to really stay out of harms way but you do need to try and figure out when to time its use.

    Don't forget honor/perfection.

    Nice one Syrus. The damage bonus although that matters far less if your chaining AI since that damage doesn't get the boost.

    I think honor/perfection alone outweighs the benefits of resist. I also often run in protection which negates the benefit of resisting spells anyway.

    I would say it depends. Honor/Perfection does outweight it if its not a temp designed to constantly chain AI. But a whammy is so it makes sense to consider dropping it if your not using the other skills with it.
