    • Are there any plans to update this with the DLC in mind?06 Jul 2016 13:46  

      I could honestly probably just slap together something usable in a google doc myself if there isn't since just adding stuff to a sheet and adding sort options shouldn't be hard, but I'm curious if the wiki itself has any plans at the moment for that or a more thorough optimizer.

      • help05 Jul 2016 08:51  

        Can someone help me understand what I'm doing wrong with the boss micolash on the second part of his fight when he's trapped again he almost one shots me and I can't dodge the attack as it's too explosive. It's that attack that goes round the whole room it's don't know it's name. It's kinda like a huge explosion of a tars.

        • Rapid poison defense05 Jul 2016 08:51  

          Highest rapid poison defense is the whole black church set (black church hat, black church garb, surgical long gloves, black church trousers/dress). Don't know about DLC items though.

          • Hmmmm05 Jul 2016 08:51  

            Can someone smart explain to me what the difference between 'Highest Grand Total' and 'Highest Defence Total' is? And also, DLC armour's aren't included in these charts, are they?

            • Diminishing returns on defense stats?05 Jul 2016 08:51  

              So I noticed yesterday that when I put on my armor my defense didn't equal out to what they should of if it was just a 1:1 ratio. The resistance was fine but I was losing up to 10% from bolt Defense.
