    Default Riftstalker HK Crystal...

    Anyone else find this extreamly weak?

    (2) Reduces Deflected non physical dmg by 15%
    - only non-physical in HK i can think of is Matron.. useless....

    (4) Reduce dmg after shadow blitz by 10%, last for 5 seconds.
    - For a 25 second cooldown, it's almost worthless.

    Don't forget the 45 endurance that doesn't scale with guardian phase. And yes it's a weak crystal.

    ...Wow. I have no idea how I didn't notice that. Awesome... I miss my 6 second cooldown on Rift Disturbance. :/

    I've heard that the Warlord crystal is at least alright, though warriors use pretty much only that one.

    It is there to help rogues on sicaron/murdantix. Since one of the major complaints on rogue tanking was rogues inability to tank moldering decay they made this change.

    Without the crystal Moldering Decay doesn't hit that hard.

    It was killing rogue tanks in 1 or 2 ticks before the buffs.

    Ok roger notice you said before the buffs to Riftstalker. I'm saying now they don't hit for **** without the crystal so back to my point of the crystal sucking.

    Yep, its garbage. The 2-piece is literally there only so Rogues can tank Sicaron. Rogues are the ***** of this game, just so you know.

    No it wasn't, and that was because of a bug. Decay is also physical damage so it's unaffected. The only non-physical damage attack that can be deflected on the first floor that I can think of is from the adds on Grug.

    And yes the crystal is terrible.

    Really the Crystal should be:

    (2): Reduces deflected dmg by 15%
    (3): Increases Dex 45
    (4): Reduce damage after Rift Disturbance by 10%, last for 8 seconds.


    With no deflect itemization this would close the gap on the dmg mitigated vs a warrior's block overall.
    I'd prefer the double dip into Dodge/deflect for 3pc rather then a non scaling 45End.
    If you want it tied to an AE ability, at least tie it to one we use throughout a fight.
