I disagree with your assessment of the stat wisdom, though. I've found it much more important and I seem to get the best results when I kept it as close to my Int as possible, until the point I've balanced my stats and just start dumping extra stat points into Int again.
I also have two questions, the first is about Spectral Assassin. You said that the damage of SA increases with increasing rank, not just the duration. Have you tested this? It isn't written like that in the tooltip, but then there are always some tooltip errors.
The second question is about ecto, I think the tooltip is definitely wrong on ectoplasmic form. I dont think that either form OR body prevent stuns and knockdowns. I tested this briefly, but I was testing many other things at the same time, so I could be mistaken. Have you checked this? Also, you listed that they dont absorb astral damage, but I believe they do now.
Lastly, I noticed one typo under your WS explanation, you mention using twin under WS when I think you meant to say SA.
Your guide is really well thought-out, I'm going to start directing my apprentices here! The build I ended up making is pretty similar to the first build you listed, too. Thanks for all your hard work, and good luck in the contest!
Thanks for pointing these things out! I was in such a rush while writing this guide that I think I did confuse some minor details. And you're assessment about ecto seems correct, as I'll often put ecto up when fighting paladins and then subsequently get stunned, snared, knocked down and silenced
. The SA description was an error now that I think about it. The damage is calculated from the target's strength and weapon stat and is only boosted by assassins mark rubies. Thanks a lot, I'll update it in a sec to clarify these nuances.
