[3.5] Oni-Goroshi Wild Strike/Molten Strike: (Slayer/Jugg, 7K+ HP, 5k+ Leech) ~ Uber Elder Down!

What do you think regarding slayer leech nerf? Looks like it would still be sufficient to counter debuff from the sword, yes?

Hi was curious about playing this build in 3.6 but I was curious about how the leech change affect this build?
If you have some idea I would be happy to hear them.

The leech nerfs don't really hurt much since this build relied more on hitting FAST, with many smaller instances of hits (balls/wildstrike etc.), rather than single large hits. It was rare that (pre-nerf) the overleech would last more than roughly 10-13 seconds after you stop hitting something. Now, it'll only last 5 seconds - but still, this is more than enough to counter Oni-Goroshi and in actual practice, you shouldn't be taking more than that to reach the next pack of mobs.

As such, hitting the leech cap (10 instances now) is still very quick and reliable. The only time you WOULD feel this nerf is during a boss with a long transition phase, since you'll lose your leech. Or if you take too long to reach the next pack.
