Desintegrate vs 6 Awareness, does it worth trait points?

Comparing spending 21 Trait points

This actual only for Wand build. Because Staff gets extra damage from Intellect also staffs are slower.

6 Awareness -
3 additional damage for every hit

Desintegrate cooldown is 20 sec
Wand makes 11 attacks per 10 sec
Adding reaction time ~ 25 attacks

25 (attacks) x 3 (damage from Awareness) = 75 total


5 Intellect, 2 Awareness, 3 Traits to spare -
25 (attacks) x 1 (damage from Awareness) + 140 (Desintegrate at 20 lvl) = 165 total

165 - 75 = 90 additional damage with Desintegrate


On the other hand, you can spend skill points from Desintegrate for Lightning Bolt.
64 additional damage ~ 8 sec.

So looks like lightning bolt with Awareness gives more damage.

Agility will give twice the added damage that awareness will, so focus on AGI not AWA, if anything. That said, I wouldn't compare a trait to a skill directly that way. If you go with 6 AGI that's an entirely different build and play style, a direct comparison to disintegrate then wouldn't be sufficient imo. You do raise an interesting point nonetheless

It's not that easy. For example, lvl 8->9 AGI vs lvl 2->4 AWA

In that case, AWA is better, 9 trait points vs 7 (3+4)...

Yup. The "tradeoffs" for gains per trait points for ranged damage happen at LVL 3->4 AGI versus LVL 0->2 AWA, then again at LVL 7->8 AGI versus 2->4 AWA, like you pointed out.

And similarly for mana gains, LVL 3->4 INT costs more points than LVL 0->2 PER for the same mana gain. The next tradeoff happens at LVL 7->8 INT versus LVL 2->4 PER. :geek:

EDIT: I suppose I should add for completion :ugeek: that going from LVL 6->7 INT costs the same as LVL 2->4 PER for the same mana gain, so either is good. I'd prefer the PER for other benefits and more balance. Similarly for agility versus awareness for ranged damage.

Arrr, I hoped I got rid of math after dividing with zero with my calculator.... :ugeek:

2x=y
2a=b

Now minmax equation... *headshot*
