A while back I mentioned in another thread I made the following build: 120 Sword 120 Tact 120 Anat 120 Bushido 100 Lumberjack 99 Necro (84 with +15 on a ring) 56 Chiv I made the woodland armor so I could get all of my HCI/DI to 45/100 without needing either on the wep. I have 5 SSI on the ring and use the 5 SSI cape with over 180 stam so I swing an ornate at max swing speed. The idea is to chain crushing blow. I have 40 lmc and a mana pool of 50. My axe had 63 mana leech on it. I was able to do crushing blow on every swing. I finished my suit yesterday and went to kill balrons. It worked very well. I never got below 3/4 life as every hit pretty much leeched me back to full. First crushing started at 136 dmg, and then got consecutively higher as my level of perfection increased. Unfortunately it never took 10 swings to kill one of them so I don't know what the max damage output was. I didn't think to try doing some with lightning strike to compare the crit dmg vs crushing. I'll make a note to track those results. I won't have time tonight or even any time this weekend but Monday night I'll do a dreadhorn to see if I have similar results.
