I am about to hit empowered monos and I am looking for some input on how to increase the single target dps without having to change to the siege barrage node or having to change this to an electrify DOT build. Mono clearing is a piece of cake and end bosses, aside from the timeline bosses, go down really quickly.
So far, it seems that going 5/5 in forceful hurl and 4/4 in monster piercer is the best way to get big hits and crits. Strategic Patience does increase your dps by a good amount, but by god does it tank your throwing speed. I am trying to avoid having to make smite the damage dealer and have to deal with Devotion and the mana nonsense that comes with it.
Every javadin build I have seen avoids Divine Fury and either goes Siege Barrage or Electrify or both. I mean, it plays like a Javazon in D2R clearing hell cows so I suppose I could just make it my mono farmer.
Sigh. Any input is appreciated. I don’t currently like how long it takes to bring down timeline bosses in non-empowered monos.
