I really like the stat re-balancing you did with the items; the set has overall stayed the same, but the pieces had their powers shifted proportionately. My favourite part is the 2/3 piece bonuses. There are very few ST sets where using 2/3 pieces is actually worth, and this might be one of the ones where it’s not only worth it, but greatly incentivized. Here’s just some theorizing with the combinations I saw most practical:
Armor + Ring + 2 Piece ST Bonus = 300 HP, 18 DEF, 5 VIT
Wyrm + Decades = 190 HP, 18 DEF, 5 DEX
Wrath’s Brigandine + Ring of Decades = 270 HP, 14 DEF (shits on what was the old HP set which is pretty epic)
So clearly, it’s very, very viable and actually works well with the right items. Now let’s move onto 3 piece combinations:
Armor + Ring + Cloak + 3 Piece ST Bonus = 300 HP, 20 DEF, 15 VIT, 5 ATT, 5 DEX
Wyrm + Decades + Planewalker = 190 HP, 18 DEF, 9 DEX, 5 SPD
Wyrm + Decades + Bloody = 190 HP, 20 DEF, 2 VIT, 5 DEX
Wrath’s Brigandine + Decades + Planewalker = 270 HP, 14 DEF, 4 DEX, 5 SPD
Wrath’s Brigandine + Decades + Bloody = 270 HP, 16 DEF, 2 VIT
Basically, if you’re willing to always use the cloak, this set not only is more tanky than most other tank sets, it also deals a hefty amount of damage, only losing to the higher end damage items (which don’t have tankiness anyways). If you replace cloak with dagger, and use swapout cloaks, it’s more or less the same pattern (since daggers don’t net any stat boosts anyways). Overall, very solid set now.
But yeah, the stat re-balancing really helps this set balance wise, and practical wise with some theory crafting.
