Int or Not to INT, that is the Question!

So like I said yesterday, Samius is rocking the Draconic Incarnation destiny atm and most likely will for eE content. And I have two very different paths I can take I can go for maxing out my INT via destiny or just nabbing a few points when I don’t have other places to use the points when moving up a level.

I have pictures because I this is a visual medium right?

Here you can see we have +6 int, wings and +3 spell pen but a lot of important ones are 1/3s like “Dragon heritage” and “Energy burst”. I could move a point from “Go out with a Bang” for a rank in “Precise casting” because I can’t get a second rank in “Energy burst” anyway. But that would be a minor shift.

But lets see yourddo shows Samius at 47 int and I am closer to pic 2 with 2 points of Int so I would gain 4 points putting me at 51+ 1 twist (sometime) + 1 exp int slotted some place, +1 litany (sometime) +2yogo pot + 2 store pot or around 58ish int on a fairly stable base, assuming I want to buy store pots…. Higher still if I wanted to go pure Wiz and PM…

Or I could do like what I am doing now only a little more cleaned up:

And live with about a 52/54 int most of the time…

I don’t know what will be better in the long run but I know once I get all my twist unlocked to twist in “Brace for Impact” or Even more Spell Pen, “Echoes of the Ancestors” and “Spell school specialist”

You have thoughts on main Destiny setups let me know! Hell I might fall in love with Magister, don’t think I will but maybe…

  1. I’m going to experiment with this:

    INT VI
    Energy Burst III
    Spell Pen III

    I’ll miss dragon breath and wings. Energy Vortex is cool
    but I’m OK dropping it to hit higher DC’s for EE.

  2. I am not sure but my gut feeling would say that is easier to go all DPS with Draconic and its burst damage than to reach no fail necromancy (you need both DC and spell penetration) for eEpics. If you do go the DC/spell penetration route isn’t Magister easier and twist what you need from Draconic?

  3. Magister is not all that sexy except for the +DC to a school. Not that it utterly sucks, but almost all of it you can just live without.

    I’m starting with Magister , keeping the +3dc in a twist, and then moving off to other destinies to try them out.

  4. With more twist points I’d actually do magister and twist in the burst.

    10% less spell cost, more spell pen to one school, deathward dispel mechanism, lots of good stuff in magister.

  5. I am new to ED and haven’t run EE yet. AFAIK you can do fine with ~55 Int, probably less but Im not sure.

    Your DI set up looks similar to what I am experimenting it. You probably know this but Precise Casting ? (Tier 2 bald guy with a headache) requires either Spell Pen Evo or Conj for their respective school. Augment Breath looks cool but only if you are certain trash mobs are going to survive your breath attack, which I guess it will be true on EE, right?.

    Oh and try to keep Energy Burst! I really liked it and like Finch, Im sure it will be a cool twist for non arcane toons.
