I just got an Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac which upgrades my current one. It is a ancient semi perfect roll:

  • +7% attack speed,
  • 8% resource cost reduction,
  • 6% Crit,
  • only 6% cool down reduction.

I would like to know which stat I should re-roll. I'm using Captain Crimson's Trimming bonus, so the cool down would increase my DMG DEALT and the cost reduction would increase my survivability.

As it is, it's grating +5% of raw dmg. I wouldn't like to give away my dmg reduction cause I'm a little squishy already, so second to that, which stat should I re-roll to get more dmg? In another words: Is 6% of "Damage dealt" bigger than 5% of "raw" damage?


According to this "Aegis of Valor Heaven's Fury Crusader" guide best stats for your rings are:

  • Socket
  • Critical Hit Chance
  • Critical Hit Damage
  • Area Damage

And this is what this guide says about CDR:

Heaven's Fury Crusaders are heavily Cooldown-dependent, so try to your best to reach a 60%+ CDR point in your sheet to ease the strain on your Obsidian Ring of the Zodiac resets.

If you have around 60% CDR already I suggest rolling CDR into Socket (this is the most important thing - Legendary Gem in this socket outweighs any single stat) or into second critical stat (if you already have Socket since you mentioned only 1 crit). If you are far from that CDR limit, I suggest rolling Attack Speed into Socket or crit - your build's goal is to deal damage with shield reflects anyway, so your own attack speed is less relevant.

As for your second question about damage difference - check this answer.

  • tks for. the insight... looking at that guide, the writer said that 60% CDR is desired but hw only prioritises shoulder, weapon, shield and gauntlets. Those combine up to a max of 34% (10+8+8+8)... where the hell are we supposed to pull the remaining 26?!?!?

  • currently im using Gogok, and my base CDR is 50% and let me tell, quite oftenly I see myself dangerously close to run of of Akarat while "frozen" from the stone gauntlets

  • @Leonardo you can get some CDR from Paragon levels, but I don't remember exact numbers
