yea i agree, 40% cdmg buff is way to go if we think about future-proof. Awakening give us max +50% cdmg(?) and on the current content 16% dmg or storm skill dmg still do good. with CDMG to boss costume enchant, we can reach 450% with the upcoming new lv95 gold acc (+30% base & +50% cap right?) but i kinda hate if we have to stuck with 20% wizard buff but ow well.
and Purple secret stone will likely arrive on next patch.. Aeria accidently put advanced SS re-roll recipe on alchemy npc (but later removed?) but RNG troll tells me that getting 8%cdmg/4%dmg won't be easy.
as for high defense meta, i still don't have any idea whatever def shred 'flat' from HS sub is better than def shred %. there's Jp player who goes Tachi sub on awakening, and as far as i can tell from skill hotbar, she use gold Rond -def mastery along with orange storm curse mastery (can also do the same with bard sub i think)
the Wiz-Tachi JP player channel can be found here for those interested --> https://www.youtube.com/channe…mQHfdDcepQnj_0cYXg/videos
buuut anything can goes right if +30 everything right?
