I wonder, how good is Gruesome Feast (10% max mana + 10% max int for every globe for 15 secs, stacks up to 5 times) compared to Confidence Ritual (+25% damage to enemies within 20 yards) for LoN firebats build at high end grifts (with 5k+ int enchanted on gear).
>95% of people on the ladder prefer CR, even though there are few players with GF taken directly in passives in top-50, so it is doable at least. But is the difference huge or just minor? Why and when would you take one over another?
Tbh i always wanted to go with GF over CR because that way i dont have to be 25y close to my gargs, but now also, after crating over 500 (not kidding) Hellfire amulets, i only got one decent ancient with GF, and now wonder, if it is really worth it to make few hundred more to switch to confidence ritual, or just keep it as it is.
Didn't really consider it when pushing grifts, I guess its useable since the top players are doing it.
I prefer CR because the damage is more consistent. Generally lots of globes drop after elite packs which are normally the last thing to die, I wouldn't feel confident that I could keep enough stacks of GF to justify its use.
i think you are right, CR is way more reliable for the higher grifts. You could look at running GF if your follower can proc globes, but i prefer them running the lightning and stunning builds.
Globes can be hard to get too if you dont have the right unhindered boots or pickup radius too.
