Wondering if it is worth getting my BM the awakened r8 gear? I am currently running full dragon with dragon fist and axes. I have been told by some people its worth it to get it and some people have said don't waste time on the r8. So I thought I would bring my question to the forum and get some input. Ty all in advance.

r8 BMs are hard to kill. Bms already have great Defense Buffs and when you add the def levels from r8 they are even more Tanky.

its worth it if you can get nice recasts as it is for other class's. if you dont pvp much i would say just stick to dragon since you will lose aps from being full R8.

I would have to say no. I've seen many r8 blademasters and honestly, only thing they are good for is being a meat shield.

I've had r8 blademasters with gof poleaxe hitting maximum of 8k zerk crits on my full AA attack level veno. That being said, if you really do want to get r8, go for defense levels and +elemental resistance on armors which is a good build for support blademaster. Attack levels aren't that much of a deal anyway (From 40 attack levels to 60 attack levels my damage increases only by somewhat 7-8%).

No, But...

you can get more aps or more DPH.
idk what you want from your sin.

DPH (Damage Per Hit) with some R8 God Of Frenzy daggers is nice dmg.
Sometimes it really pops my eyes O.o when i see the dmg from 1 single hit.

APS (Attacks Per Second) says it all.
if ur lucky and you haver Sleeves with 2x or 3x Int u can get a high base aps.
and you can kill in no time.

But its Just what u prefer too play.
Dragon is also good for sins.
just ask around and Duel/Dmg test/Pk with sins with r8.
and you'll see what u like. ;)

If you equiped all toons with Demonic and
all other things that require Epic Coins
THEN
go R8.

Some day, when you get stats you want, it is worth it.

But takes so much time and effort to get it.

Farming EC to recast for wanted stats will take
all your time for many months.
(You might give up finally, unless you're extremely lucky.)

i used to spend all my time farming EC   to reforge my r8 poleaxe for x4 def levels on my sage barb and then gave up after XXth reshape.  :tiger-14:
so when i made a Demon Barb i just went r8 for wep and still use Dragon Armors.  :normal-1:

If you're not anal about the stats that you may possibly get, get rank 8.

I'm building my archer around not aps, so dragon would've probably been better for me, but the r8 bow is just too damn pretty.  Just gotta figure out what you want.

Stay Classy.
