So since RoR ive been trying many different builds, recently settled on a damage/morale hybrid:
Damage for power 2, health for power 1-2, Mastery boosts for the rest. Its really a middle of the road build and it keeps me alive long enough when im in the freep ball to get some heals while in rvr so its serving its purpose. Now Im not going to profess expertise on the new changes with U9 to crit defense. However my understand is (the dumbed down version) Criticals will occur more often but you will protect against them thus balancing out the damage overall.
From the diary:
So are you slotting crit protection? I normally like to run a burst damage warg set up, even the hybird build I have now is not my preferred build but you do what you must. Id like to know what other wargs around the moors are slotting these days and how its working for you.By making this change, we can maintain protections against spike damage, while increasing the reliability of Critical mechanics.
