legendary hunter vs ninja mod

#1Mikey-VengeancePosted 8/24/2013 10:01:02 PM
I play a melee zero and im wondering if the drop in back stab and melee damage from ninja mod would be worth it in comparison to everything else the legendary hunter gives? How effective is the +melee from ninja mod?

Legendary Hunter gives you exceptional survivability and provides at least some boost to your melee damage. Its cooldown bonus also frees up your relic slot for something other than a cooldown relic.

It's better for general questing and for mobs.

Shadow Ninja mods are more damage oriented and the difference between the two is considerable. Wear your Shadow Ninja mod + a cooldown bonus relic when you're going up against a boss, raid or otherwise.

Its a pretty big difference in power because of the way the damage formula works. Ambush, Backstab, Killing Blow and Death Mark (kunai stacking) are your most damaging melee related skills.

It's been a very long time since I've read something as helpful as that. I'm on my second Zero character and I never knew half of that information.

Thanks, that was very much appreciated.
