    Default Best Essences for a 27bd build? PvE

    I'm in full T2gear with T2 weapons. What are the best essences for a 27bd build?

    Currently using:

    Flowing River
    Final Cut
    Eastern Winds
    Abyssal Flood
    Centius' Rage
    Scorched Flamesource

    Should I switch my Flamesource with necrotic semblance?
    I will be replacing Centius' Rage with the Burning Spark soon.

    I'm using:

    - Burning Spark
    - Flowing River
    - Rushing River
    - Woodland Hunt
    - Necrotic Rites
    - Eastern Winds

    Totals: 72 Strength, 102 Dexterity, 36 Attack Power, 37 Physical Crit.

    I used to have a pure crit essence, but replacing it with this marginally increased DPS (~10). The reason is that BD builds scale very well with AP compared to others, making the itemization rates lean heavily in favor of AP-bearing items and essences.

    I've been saving up for the Hellfire Blades greater essence, but with the nerf to inscribed sourcestones I figured I'd just spend what I had on more lessers, since that way I don't lose ~20 dps on builds not including Nightblade.

    I hear the 50 hellfire blade greater is pretty bad for dps?

    How much dps does the necrotic give?

    They all give like 10 according to some basic estimations, maybe even more on a BD spec. Can't say for sure.

    I believe the hellfire blade greater adds like 18-20 DPS on its own.
