So just today I found out that elemental scepters are a thing that help with bashing in the form of experience, damage, damage resistance and critical hits.
I'm certain there are other arties or talismans out there that affect bashing in some way that I'm missing out on, I wanted to put this list together for anyone interested, and also get some insights if there are more things that could be making the difference.
Looking at both speed and defense when it comes to this list, I'm not looking at utility (like wings, death's call, harness etc).
Stats (str, dex, int, con)
Collar (if magic damage based)
Diadem (if eq based)
Health Regen (if not Suremekh'neina).
Auspicious Paragon (20% chance to increase the crit level)
Crucious Paragon (Gives Plane Razing Crits)
Shield of Absorption
Deathcape (Stacking health bonus)
Suremekh'neina (L3 Regen)
Maya Figurine (WSC/PRC Crit overflow)
Environment Scepter (damage, exp, crit, damage resists based on environment)
Matic Card (next hit gauranteed crit)
Morimbuul (anti-web/entangle vs denizen)
Clouded glass lily (chance to +2% crit, lower chance to -1% crit).
Cullingblade (rage attack that hits 2 denizens)
Life Enhancement Elixir
What else?? I'll repost a list further down if this expands.
