Traps : Vampiric Emp. or Destruction ?

Recommended Posts

I play a Dryad as main.

Lv130, 5500 gear points.

I'm trying to fine-tune my stuff. Getting ready for C7.


I saw a few guides recommanding Vampiric Empowerment for my traps (Nimbus / Bombs).


The thing is.... Destruction gives me way better numbers ! (like, 520k vs 560k...)


I have the following theory : Most guides are from pre-relic revamp.With actual relics basically being either "Power+ then HP+" or "HP+ then Power+", a Trap would obviously use a relic boosting POWER before HP (which is what I do).Therefor, my Traps's HP really isn't high enought to use the Vampiric Emp. to its full potential....... which in the end seems to be quite an "OK" outcome. Destruction will be better and that's fine.


Unless I missed something....?

Right ?... Right ?.... No... ? Maybe ?

Generally, you wouldn't use Vampiric Empowerment over Destruction on medallions. The reason why people use VE on Dryad defenses is because her defenses have amazing natural range, meaning you usually don't need any range investment (Deadly Strikes) outside range gambit from ascension. You can use the extra shard slot (after Destruction, Defense Rate) to invest in more damage (with VE).
