A point of clarity: neither warrior had a GI. Vohn had very little PAs towards 1handers where as PJ had them maxxed out (in t1/t2 ONLY that is). We'll see what we can do about getting a 38/23/5 parse in unless some further changes are posted soon.this is unfortunately true and I say unfortunately because before the latest changes on IB cooldown and Destroyer's functionality synergy between builds was very close to ideal - only needed a couple of tweeks with the GCD finishers' synergy to make them competitive - and we almost had a wide choice of viable 2H and DW specs.
I don't see a reason why IB had to go on a 3 sec cooldown since Destroyer's Bearing was only granting an attack point to 3-point finishers. Likewise para-rb specs couldn't abuse 1 point IBs since the whole paragon idea is to always do builder -> Follow-up and I don't know any BM or RB spec that made 1 point IB spam worth doing either power-wise or dps-wise.
Also Destroyer's changes completely destroyed 51champ synergy with all other specs.
15 points in BM is not enough to get a proper pet, proper bleeds or anything else that worth more than just an extra oGCD reactive (flesh rip)
15 points in RB give you no synergy as elemental finishers does not work with destroyers anymore resulted in the spec losing at least 200-250 dps.
15 points in paragon is a waste since using follow up attacks grants you an extra attack point, however, follow up attacks are only triggered after using a builder which automatically means u already have 3 points and getting a 4th from destroyer's proc is useless.
This is exactly what I was talking about in one of my previous posts.
Atrius needs to get out of this "if it's coming on top it must be nerfed" logic basically because whenever something is nerfed it opens the way for something else to come on top.
We've seen this happening after Champ crystal nerf, SLI nerf, Slayer's nerf, FB nerf, Destroyer's nerf, force of will nerf etc etc.. now what? nerf Paragon DW till RB 2H comes on top and then nerf that too till BM comes back on top and so on..
Atrius need to create synergy. From then on numbers will come naturally with small tweaks here and there. (if you've played the mage you must have realized that)
On a side note, I've tried 38para/23champ/5rb against 44/20/2 with raid buffs.
The 44/20/2 warrior is a very decent one with same gear as me plus the golem inductor he has.
Both builds parsed around the same with each one coming ahead of the other depending on RNG which only mean that 38 para specs scale better than 44 with raid buffs allowing you to invest those 6 points to get some extra utility. Imo just go 38-26-2 and get fair AoE.
