    If you swap those out for 2 pieces of the greymist(?) set, each will give you a +2. That'll bring it to 101, but youo have to bring regs.

    For even more, +arcane empowerment, +reaper form. Can't remember how much those 2 adds.

    Arcane empower gives 10% per focus lvl, so up to 60%. It's a very powerful spell and imo one of the critical spells to learning how to play an arcanist well. A lot of arcanists just use spellweaving for WoD, but the good ones all use arcane empower :)

    I think reaper form gives you 20% SDI + 1% per focus lvl, but I'm not sure. I rarely use reaper form, because I don't like sacrificing mobility for the SDI buff.

    I'm pretty sure SDI has diminishing returns, though. There was a patch maybe 6 months ago that before the patch I could 2 hit kill demons (demon slayer scrappers) and after the patch it takes me 3 or 4 spells.

    Going nuts on SDI has its advantages, but diminishing returns definitely encourages you to build a balanced suit.

    Also of note, GM inscription gives you 10% SDI that doesn't count toward your 15% pvp SDI cap for spells that use eval to calculate their damage.
