View Full Version : Opportunity Attack - Is this worth taking?

2 Charges?

Only 6 Seconds of +20 Melee Power?

No cooldown shown on description, Description also doesn't state when that 10% chance of regaining a charge happens - Is it on any attack or just on Opportunity Attacks?



This looks to me like one of those Enhancements that may not be actually useful at all and just a waste of AP OR a must take - Which is it?

Based on other threads: it's a 10% chance of proccing on every hit, but you can only gain 1 stack per second with a max of 2 stacks. So as long as you have plenty of targets to hit, you ought to be able to sustain it. Though if you thought sustaining Blitz required an aggressive zerging playstyle, that's nothing compared to maintaining Opportunity Atk, I'd wager... :cool:

It's a must take. It's awesome and is always up and the charges refresh faster than you get a stack of blitz. It last 6 seconds with a 6 second CD. You just have to hit every 6 seconds. It's always helpful right before using a good death. I've hit 24k crits with it up and it has made a huge difference toward the end of harder fights/raid bosses when combined with Deadly and A Good Death.

Well I did take it on my Dwarf G-Axe Kensai {He's only Lvl 15 atm} but I wanted to be sure I hadn't made a mistake.

I need to go through my other Kensais and redo their enhancements with these changes.


Again I really don't like Blitz - Is any other Destiny even close to LD for Kensais?

No. Not for sustained DPS, anyway.

If you like seeing big crit numbers, I suppose you could use FotW for Adrenaline + Good Death, but Rage effects don't work while defensive stance is active, so you'd have to dump SD. Though I suppose that means you could pour more into Harper for extra Melee Power etc.

Well on the subject of dead characters do no DPS I personally like Unyielding Sentinel - I'm just not sure I can safely take it as main destiny for a G-Axe Kensai.

Would Fury be workable without Barb Levels or would I need to go something like 16 Fighter/4 Barb?
