Mastery 101

Following the Arena post, Mastery (and its accompanying transmutation) is a new game feature to be introduced to DH5. The general gist of it is to allow you to use duplicates and spare items to improve your gear with enhanced stats and a unique trait.

For this post’s structure, I’ll be doing a different approach by adding FAQs along the way since putting everything at the end might seem too confusing. Another reason is that Mastery might not be as straightforward on first glance, so probing around and asking questions was the best way to learn about it. 🙂

*Minor Update (16/6): Strike Chance damage rough percentage added.

Missing the Dodge (and more) Pt.1

After clearing your free trinkets and testing out the new crafting mechanism, the next large change to the game comes in the form of the modified dodge modification. As brought up in the previous post (and at the request of many), let’s discuss what exactly dodge is now and how this has impacted combat as a whole.

As a continuation in a later post, we shall also look into what is good now and new strategies to adopt in order to adapt to these new changes.

Before I go into that, do give the entirety of the official changelog a read first before we go any further.

Done? Alright, let’s start.

Skills Documentation

A post which I wanted to do quite some time back but never properly had the time to sit down to work on until now. Allow me to present to you….Skills Documentation.

In the same vein as the minions abilities documentation list which GL, which you can check out here, do note that this is a documentation list and subjective opinions here are kept minimal at best. Additionally, this list attempts to sieve out whatever useful information one might need in figuring out certain skills.

Happy New Year to all fellow readers!

Before I start, Thank you for your support, especially those who are following this blog and my guild mates, in the past year of 2016! Hopefully 2017 would be great for DH5 with plenty of new additions and bug-free updates. 🙂

To follow up with the traits ranking post, let’s more on to one of the major aspects of this game – Skills.

[The Basics] Weapons – Melee

A bit of hiatus recently due to real life commitments catching up with me and I’m feeling a bit of the brunt of keeping up the schedules for both. :/ Fortunately, here’s something for your reading pleasure before I do something more content-heavy.

Well…the initial plan was to work on different types of SHv2.0 building and raiding strategies. However, with the new announcements on the DH5 social media channels (about the ‘new’ room, changing dynamics of minions) remind me (time and again) why I should wait for the new update before I decide to provide a more comprehensive coverage.

(And no, I dislike doing speculative posts since lack of grounded knowledge is the bane of every academic literature…)

In short: Don’t worry, those posts will come in due time ;).

Minion Classification [Part 2]


To continue the post last week, here is the second part of the Minion Classification which covers the two out of the remaining of the minion categories, Defenders and Ranged Strikers.

Also, I’m going to put up the same disclaimer to the post: The information here is actually quite ‘meh’ for the experienced/ seasoned player and raider. If you’re bored, do come back soon when I’ll get my Ruby Temple post up and going. Alternatively, you can check out the new site map, which organises all of my previous posts.
