    PvE Info for BM

    Attribute?
    Apparently Water doesn't stack with Armor Break which already has 84% DEF Reduced.

    Elixir choice?

    ^ Standard Water II + Wind II.

    For Elixirs, I'd personally recommend the Giant potion since it increases SW's vertical range. I'm not 100% sure whether the range increase means more hit count, but I can do some testing.

    Water is not that great for BM imo still. Don't forget that there is the Killing Blow 2 trait, which pushes Armor Crash's defense reduction to 45%.

    For elixirs, Rosso's Blazing Ring is amazing with BM's Bloody Accel. It's the only elixir that can heal you from Bloody Accel. Even if there is a moment when you die, if the flames touch the enemy at the right time, you will revive without having to use a resurrection stone. This method works wonders in Heroic. If death is not an issue, Blazing Bomb for melee range or Giant for all purposes.

    The Rosso Blazing Ring is actually a nice tip, thanks.
    and yeah, I just saw that Armor Crash can get up to 45% DEF Reduction on Elwiki while the new Water IV only goes to 30% but Armor Crash is also only lowering Physical DEF too but he mainly uses Physical anyways.
    and I believe they also don't stack together, unless they allowed it now(?)

    Wind was nerfed I think so that the additional damage is based off +0 Enhancement
    and Dark was gravely nerfed so that's why I was asking which element would be good for PvE.

    I'm thinking that they do, but I'm not 100% sure.

    I can do some testing if no one else can confirm.
