Which talent would be most beneficial for, lets say siren; 8/8 DS or 8/8 WG?
Not sure if Im doing the math right .. hope somebody is able to help.
According to my calculations, you get the most damage from 8wg + 5bw crests, but there are a lot of assumptions that go into that.
8ds is always a waste because you already hit the damage cap with 6ds fit most heroes.
If you are using slowdown, however, you highest damage will come from 8 slowdown + 5ds crests.
In general, ds is the best crest to use. The only two exceptions are if you have 8wg or 8bw, in which case you will do better with lvl 5bw or 5bw crests than with 5ds crests.
But, just so you know... This involves assumptions about the archdemon's damage reduction and about buffs.
For archdemon maxed ds will be useless because if buffed properly your siren can deal 500k dmg even with level4 crest when the ds triggers. Imo it's better to use the combo of wg/bw+ds or ds+hb if you want that extra hit.

It has been observed that damage buffs cap at some point (and this point is reachable with 10/10 pd and 10/10 cupid/val). So, maybe this means that damage buffing talents wargod and bulwark do nothing (or almost nothing).
If this is true, then a slowdown + ds combination would be better.
Has anyone tested if this is true?
There's a cap to boost. Wich can be reached by pd, cupid, mike stack procs
War god and bulwark boost get lost.
The best talent for AD team is slowdown, second is heavy blow
At max boost, deadly strike 3 is enough to reach 500k cap.
Just to keep anyone from doing something stupid, siren already has slowdown so don't give her it as a talent
