    Default Tempest with paragon soul

    Why are people using "Combat Precision" from the paragon soul? Isn't all the tempest attacks elemental and therefor already ignores armor?

    I wonder this exact same thing. not to mention, Flame Spear, being an Elemental, Ranged, Builder, gets most of the perks that you spec into and have buffs for in the rotation, it's only shortcoming as an ability is it's slightly shorter range to the rest of Tempest powers...

    you would think that initially; as did I and one of my guildies; however it seems that overall the 15 in paragon does a ton more for you than allocating points into riftblade, the main reason for this is that even though your attacks are elemental based they still scale better off STR and AP which at 15 points into paragon you get +15%...its not so much the first 10 points in paragon that matter as the last 5 for the strength buff, that and the /15 para rotation seems to do about 1000-1500 dps more than the /15rb having tested both, that is the disparity I noticed.

    I've tried building 5 Para 10 Champ so you're basically swapping 10% armour bypass for 10% more damage on finishers.

    Logically it should be a DPS increase, but it was actually a loss.

    Armour bypass is certainly doing something for tempest.

    Test it out.

    I guess you are doing something wrong if you put rb in your tempest soul....the 15% more str results vs rb in about 100 dmg more for builders and 150-200 less dmg for finisher also you don`t have flamespear or the 6% higher proc chance of Stormblade and the 15% is not really a high crit increase.
    Wonder how you get a difference from 1k+ dps with this.

    10rb/5para sounds good in the way of dps Guess 15rb will be the smarter choice if boss does a lot of aoes.
