I was also wondering if you have stoneskin talent or crest will that lower the deflected damage from asuras skill, but mainly just want to know what the best talent and crest is for him.
Tenacity, BW, SS, SL, ZD talents with Revite 5 insignia for me.
If you want to take advantage from his deflect skill than imo Tenacity or BW is your talent.
If you want to take advantage from his energy burning skill than imo SS, SL, or even ZD will be better, but with revite 5 insignia to activate it asap.
SL is what I have had on him since day one. With 8/8 SL, 5 revite sig, unbridled fury enchantment and hp traits he can stand up against Lava, not that he really beats him but he doesn't die any time soon either.
