18 TE left, what is best way to maximize spell power/damage?

Recommended Posts

My build will probably be hot garbage, but I plan on building a bear focused on damage reduction.  Without any random enchantments, this guy should be able to get up to 54% damage reduction from talents and spells.  I'm considering going with Thorns and Retribution Aura, and so the idea that spell power would matter a heck of a lot comes to mind.

With only 18 TE left to spend at current cap, what stat path would be best to convert to spell power?  I know there are ones that convert Intellect, Spirit, and Strength to spell power, as well as attack power.  If I go the attack power to spell power route, I think there is 1 talent that can convert Stamina to attack power...which is kind of attractive to such a damage soaking style of build.  Any suggestions would be helpful!

 

Finally, does anyone know if spell power affects that RE that triggers an Immolation Aura style effect when attacked?

That has nothing to do with what I asked about.  I realise this is probably far from an optimized build, but its something I want to try.

Additionally, its not like I can't pick up those in addition to picking up spell power, especially if I go the attack power to spell power route.

Spellpower Tanks in general aint working do to to low mitigation.

I mean try it - fail - lose gold - get frustated - quit or play a meta build and do experiments like that when you can effortit.

I assume this is a build for dungeons? also if you're using SoC just know it scales with weapon damage not spellpower. if it's SoR then you have some luck but not much. convert with mental quickness, add deadliness, get all the agi increase talents that are 2% or higher(this mitigation will be better then STR). if you have allot of stuff that scales with spell power make sure you have righteous fury and probably improved righteous fury(mitigation). blessing of sanc and vigilance. you could also probably get a demon pet like void walker or felguard and get soul link and master demonologist(mitigation) and demonic knowledge(spell power).

sadly you loose out on the benefits of sword and board tanking to be able to get enough str to make str to sp conversion to be worth it.
