Imprints as an assassin
So, how do you do imprints as a ~sin? I mean, her stats get all scrambled to the point that she does pedestrian damage to anything in there. My 414K CR character gets changes such as:
crit chance drops from 94% to 29%... I have specifically tried to make my character pretty much fully dependent on crit rate and burst, so this change means I'll do very few crits.
attack drops from 48K to 10K, meaning I'll be hitting all those non crits like a wet noodle.
additional damage drops from 114% to 70%
elemental drops to a flat 0, so I also lose that
interestingly, crit damage goes from 313% to 750%. Still, even my crits do very low damage because the base attack is low.
defense drops from 20K to 8K. meaning I take more than double damage even when sneezed at.
So all in all, fights that take at most 30 seconds on my other characters, here I have to grind for more than 2 minutes to complete. All because my sin's bread and butter, high crit burst, gets completely negated in an imprint zone. Anyway, not one to complain, I ask those who have done it about ways to maybe fix my character in terms of skills and what gear can be used to maybe "cheat" the system a bit. Because as it is, I'm killing these mobs much faster using characters with way less CR.
Oh, and if this matters, while I consider myself a noob, I do know enough of the class to do some damage with it, like stacking bleeds and doing my burst attacks from behind and while using stealth.
